Throw away trends are so easy to indulge in, I'm as guilty as the next person when it comes to over indulging in a trend one season and then shoving it to the back of the wardrobe, probably never to see the light of day again. One of my NY resolutions was to invest in to more staple pieces and things that cost a little more but in the long run would be used a lot more...

...and so in comes, the trench.



the people proved equal to the task

I have never been one to push my views on to others, nor will I ever be that person. But it's needless to say that after the events of the past few days that those who are willing to shout their voice in the name of important issues, should be doing so. Whenever in discussion with someone about an important issue within society, whether that's politics (yes, this girl follows the political world) racism, feminism or the frankly stupid bloody train strikes, I get worked up fairly quickly. I don't really have a calm conversation ability when it comes to important issues, not because I'm overly opinionated or because I think my voice is more important, but because of the passion I hold.



a girl lost, a woman found

There was once a girl that allowed people to walk all over her, she'd be the one that'd be sitting quietly when comments were made, the one that was too scared to stand up for herself, the one who was too afraid to be herself because of what other people would think. She would question her choices, her style, her plans. She'd question everything that made her who she is.

there is now a woman that can stand up and politely tell someone to take their shit attitude and leave without a second thought.

a woman who is unapologetically herself.

a woman who isn't willing to be walked all over.

a woman who wouldn't ever be afraid to say what's on her mind.
