Although The Sun Sinks Into Darkness; There's Always Sparkle, Even In The Darkest Hour

Pretty long title, but I was feeling quite poetic last night as I was thinking about what to call this post. It's homage to my favourite time of year - Autumn. It has always been the perfect season for me and I would love it if we had this weather all year round, but alas, it's only a short bliss. As much as the title is unusual for me, so is this outfit. I have made no secret in holding more than slight umbrage for a full on black outfit. I love colour and tend to express myself through my clothes, which is why it black is scarcely in my wardrobe. 

It would take a gem of a dress to break this, and Vivien of Holloway delivered.....well, they delivered some time ago as I bought this dress a couple of years ago but had never worn it (re see above). It was relaxing in the back of my wardrobe while I spun around in colourful dresses without a care in the world. I came across it while I was having another clear out and scorned myself for leaving it unloved for so long. How could I have done such a thing? It's flipping gorgeous!
Cardigan: H&M (Brown not available online but should be in store)
Belt: Simply Be^
Sandals: New Look^
This halterneck dress is from their Luxury range and I bought it during one of their in-store sales. I love how the intensity of the black satin is broken up by the lace overlay. The neckline is super feminine and the nip in the waist is great for a belt accessory. Other accessories included my dark brown cardigan and the most beautiful of beaut sparkly sandals. I adore this outfit and although I may change the footwear with the temperature dropping, a pair of fab ankle boots will have me walking through the multicoloured leaves with joy.

'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…
