Living like Blair Waldorf #3



I'm not a stop along the way, I'm a destination. 
What are you supposed to feel when a clothing site asks to feature you on their website? Imagine yourself spontaneously going into your favourite store on your day off, coffee running through your bloodstream and shopping on your mind. You're not expecting much but when you see the items on the mannequins matched so exquisitely to your personal style, the rails of blues, blacks and all of your favourite colours. The pair of heels that you've imagined in your mind for weeks but each time damning designers for having not created it yet. The shallow music pumping joy and other exhilarating emotions into you, the bold mirrors that make you consider for one second that maybe you look hot today and that's when you reach out for your plastic debit card, not existing until you've selected your absolute necessities- yes that Topshop fur coat is a must. Is your heart racing? That's how I feel when I get what I want. So when China Blue Shoes asked to feature one of my December looks (the royal blue coat, the tomato red lace turtle neck and skirt- chic right?), I felt something I haven't experienced in quite a while- satisfaction and in that brief moment of self praise I thought to myself people are going to remember me. 

I don't know where I've drawn the strength to believe in myself so much. I'm going to put it down to having something that I am completely passionate about. I struggle to separate real life from constantly working on this blog and all of the major changes I have lined up so I'm taking a break today and going to watch the Superbowl with some friends this afternoon and perhaps attend a social by evening. Sports? How me. But an opportunity to socialise and meet more interesting people? That, I won't say no to.

  2. Really enjoyed reading this post - I get the feeling when I company asks to collaborate with you. It is satisfying because your blog is that good that a company feels it would enhance their business! Hope you enjoyed the Superbowl!
