Bye 2012.

Monday, 31 December 2012


Looking back at outfit photos from the past year with a giddy feeling in my stomach! I can say that I really discovered my style this year, what I like and what I feel good in! That's just one of the amazing perks of blogging, another is meeting new friends along the way. I just want to thank you all for following, commenting and keeping up with my posts!
Here's to a great year of blogging! I'm looking forward to what 2013 has in store!

Happy New Year Everyone! 

Lots of Love,
Shirley 

Outfit Ideas for the Holiday Season!

Saturday, 22 December 2012

I put together a LookBook for the holidays, and this dress featured in it! I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas Party or New Year's Eve Party! It's probably one of my favourite purchases of the season, and what I love most about it is that it can be styled numerous ways, formally or casually! Kudos Topshop! 
Thought I'd pop it up on the blog with the other outfits I put together! 
Be sure to check out the LookBook (below)! :)


Dress: Topshop
Shoes: Forever 21
Bag: H&M
Bracelets: H&M

Love this jacket I got from Forever 21 a few weeks back! It has a Chanel-like feel to it...the Colour, design and feel! My Christmas Day Outfit!


Jacket, Top & Chain: Forever 21

This one is a little casual, but it's great to run around doing those last minute bits of Christmas shopping!

Capturing moments.

Tuesday, 18 December 2012


We're half way through December and the time is fast approaching, if not already here, to reflect on the past year. A lot has changed since the beginning of the year, but I'm so grateful for all the experiences I've had and learnt from. I'm looking forward to what the next year will bring. 

My Instagram Challenge has been going well, although I must admit, it has been a real challenge: remembering to snap away in between meetings and my busy schedule, and also making sure I've got the right shot! Haha! But that's what it's all about isn't it?

As most of you may already know, I have deactivated my Twitter account, for reasons I don't actually have to explain to anyone, but more so because I've reached a point in my life were I see it unnecessary to share every single thought I have. A site like Twitter just feeds the impulsive need to do just that (and also rant/vent) and often times I've found myself getting so caught up in it. Not very good for one, so it's goodbye for now. Next... Instagram. Just kidding. Capturing a moment on camera and sharing an immediate thought are two different things in my books, so I will stay on there until a time comes for me to move on. But who knows, with this new policy that will go into effect on January 16th 2013, that time may come sooner or later!

Anyway, how are you all?
I know some of you are missing my Outfit Posts, but let me tell you...It's been so COLD and DARK!!!

Lol, but will endeavour to deliver a few posts your way soon!

Some favourite things...

Friday, 7 December 2012


Faux Fur Shrug : H&M | Purse (Wallet) : Zara | My iPhone | EDT : Miss Dior

Mum has made our home so lovely and festive. She has also been babying me a little because I've had a bout with the cold for a few days and have had difficulty sleeping thanks to my annoying cough.
I did try the honey and lemon home remedy and that's made me feel much better!
I'm hoping to post and film a few videos this weekend, most probably my current favourites and a winter haul! 

I also wanted to let you know that I set myself a Photo-A-Day challenge on instagram and I'm loving posting on there throughout the month of December. I've had the joy of going through a few others' photos and I've been really inspired by all of them. Find out more about it Here.

Right now I'm sat in my cosy front room with the fireplace on, enjoying listening to my little brother talk about his day at school. :)
