Bronze Sparkle

I bought this dress way back when at the beginning of Summer, but because my wardrobe is forever overflowing, I never got an opportunity to wear it until now. I wore this gem for another fun filled day in Nottingham with my dear friend, Char. If you saw my last post about my first visit, you'll know that I absolutely fell in love with the city and simply couldn't wait to get back, so I jumped at the chance to head down there again a mere few weeks later. 

We had food at Frankie and Benny’s (uh-mazing!) and then just pottered around, diving into as many new nooks and crannies as we could find. I wanted something a little dressy but also with a mix of casual as I knew we’d be walking around the city.
Dress: Marks and Spencer^
Lace Cardigan: Marks and Spencer^
Shrug (worn underneath): eBay
Sneakers: New Look
How much of a beaut is this dress?! The delicate flower print with gorgeous pleats on the skirt are so swoon worthy, and it's so floaty which really worked with the gentle Autumn breeze. This lace cardigan is beautiful and the detail is stunning. I intended just to wear the lace cardigan on its own, but as soon as I stepped outside my front door, the cold breeze hit me so I threw on a white shrug to wear underneath. I think it works really well and I practically glided through the streets of Nottingham, as I felt utterly ethereal. 
You don't normally see me in sneakers but these were too cute to pass up and they go so well with the colours in the dress. The bronze sparkles are a lovely touch and the sneakers themselves are the most comfortable - perfect for a day full of walking.
Another great day with Charlotte and I’m already pondering what on earth I’m going to wear for my next trip!

‘til next time!

Love and hugs,

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
