Sheer Sparkle

Hi biscuits!

So it's been a while since I blogged an outfit. As I explained in my '2016 To-do List', I want my blog to have more content, but it will of course still predominately be about celebrating my style - particularly when the outfit is this gem...
Dress: Little Mistress (via Simply Be)^
Cardigan: H&M
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
Tights: Boots
Isn't this dress dreamy?! Like sparkle, flower petal, floaty princess dreamy?! I was looking for a New Year's outfit and decided to treat myself and bought three dresses. Although my plans in the end fell through and what I did instead was sit in front of the telly, eating pizza (which is obviously still a win), I couldn't bring myself to send this gorgeous dress back. I did initially fear when I opened it, that it would be a little too long, almost like a maxi dress, but it hits my pixie 5'1" height just above the ankles, so it's actually the perfect length.

I love the sheer, layered skirt that catches the wind really beautifully without fear of a Marilyn moment. But it's the top that makes the dress. How I LOVE the flower petal, mini pearl and sequin pattern! It is worth noting that one or two sequins have fallen off while putting on/ taking off the dress, but other than that the dress isn't too fragile. The back of the top is shirred (as are most Little Mistress designs) and with dresses like this, I always size down, sometimes twice, to make sure I have a good fit even after washing. 
The colours are ideal for spring/ summer so forgive me if I do nothing but live in this dress, altering my sandals and bag accessories along the way during those months. Who doesn't want to be a forever-a-five-year-old princess, in the sunshine?!

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
Isha xxx

To BB or not to BB (Part. 1)

Success

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…
