Somewhere beyond the sea…

I am a bad fashion blogger. I keep forgetting to take outfit pictures. What’s worse is I’ve missed some really good looks. Anyway, here’s a quickie & I’ll definitely get some more this weekend. 

I’ve wanted a pinafore dress like this for ages, but everything I tried on was wrong. I snapped this one up with my ASOS VIP points & crossed my fingers it would look cute on. Lucky me, it did. 

I wore it with my denim shirt for warmth whilst running around getting some messages done & it’s perfect. Very comfortable, very flexible &  very adorable. Even if I do say so myself.

The pics were taken at the cinema after seeing Deepwater Horizon. Hence, the weepy eyes. I cried buckets, but I highly recommend. Based on the true story of America’s worst oil rig disaster, it is worth seeing. The bravery of the people involved is stunning. Kurt Russell is amazing as the boss with integrity trying to look after his staff & contain the catastrophe. John Malkovich is equally great as the unscrupulous company man. It’s so easy to miss the individual stories in such a devastating event, Deepwater Horizon plugs that information gap perfectly. 

My month in pictures…

September turned out to be a busy month. Between birthdays, photo shoots & kidney infections I have been kept on my toes. So, rather than bore you with all the millions of details I present a month in pictures. 

First up, let’s do the birthdays. Young & old it’s all going off in sept. My midwife bff assures me September is always the busiest month birth wise; must be down to all that seasonal goodwill. 


There were bath bombs & vegan chocolate cake. Dinners with friends & face paints with little friends. I’m doing something big for my birthday next month, so the actual day was low key, but lovely. Not featured is the birthday of my darling big bro, mostly because him & his family popped off on holiday. Not that I’m jealous. 

Now, I bet you’re all wondering what I’ve been munching this past month, well I’ll tell you. A lot of sushi, mint tea, avocados & vegan treats. There might have been few tipples in there too. Well, it was my birthday.


I’ll pause now for some lovely/amusing things I’ve snapped. 


Ok, back to definable categories. September saw my involvement in my first ever photo shoots. I was a jack of all trades whilst overseeing the shoots for my body positive project. I got through it with the help of many talented people & topped it off by posing in my pants. Who knew, right?


Style wise my nails & I were making the transition to A/W. Autumn is my favourite season, so I’m tickled to be breaking out boots & scarfs. The weather is as unpredictable as ever, so it’s impossible to determine when these cosier items may actually be needed.


One of my new weekend activities is wedding shopping with a certain someone. The pursuit of the prettiest things has had me trekking all over, but it’s all quite peachy.


Time for a selfie break.

& some random bits & pieces to finish on. 


I hope you all had a dreamy 9th month & fingers crossed you can rock October.
