you better work

If you want something in life, you have to work for it.
You won't wake up with your dreams sewn in to your sheets.

I had a little Sunday rant over on my twitter yesterday about going after what you want and realised I had a fair bit more to say on the matter, well at least enough that it wasn't going to fit in to the character limit on Twitter (find me here). One of the things that really grates on me when it comes to people working toward their goals is that I see a lot of people relating success in areas of others lives to luck, I don't believe in luck. I believe in good timing and bad timing, but I think luck is a load of bull. It really frustrates me to see people commenting on others success' and saying 'they're so lucky', they aren't lucky; the probability that they have busted their ass to get to where they are, is highly likely, and so to say someone is simply lucky, is to discredit that entirely.

comparison, the want to be more like someone else, to do/to have something someone else has, it can push people to to self destruction.



Autumnal Lipstick Crushes

I'm definitely a lipstick gal, they probably take up 75% of my make up colection and I'll be the first to admit it's getting a little out of hand, but there's nothing like a lipstick to take you from feeling 'alright' to 'damn fabulous'. The majority of people seem to opt for the berry shades this time of year, whilst I love that look on others, I'm not such a fan of it on me unless I'm really committing to a vampy look and so my go to's for this time of year are the more pumpkin, rust and nudes, which also works well if you're looking for something a little softer but still autumnal.



transitional pieces A/W

With summer finishing a lot later than usual this year, my winter wardrobe is looking a bit sparse. So taking summer pieces and layering them up has been an absolute must for me over the past few weeks, like for real, winter appeared over night, there was no time for faux fur coat shopping. I only shot this outfit a couple of weeks back when the temp started to drop so it's for sure not as layered as I would recommend now! To layer it up a little more I'd dress it with a polo neck underneath and then throw another chunky knit over the top, or throw a heavy weight jacket over your shoulders for an easy off duty look.
