Why Being Sad Is Okay Sometimes

I didn’t post yesterday and the reason why is because I had a bad day. To be honest, admitting that is actually a bit scary because I swore to myself that I wouldn’t let my mood affect my blogging, but setting that impossible task for myself is something I need to overcome. Of course, bad days happen. Of course, your mood affects your life. I’ve been putting off writing this all day, in fact, I was going to leave it and start afresh on Monday but sharing this kind of stuff is what keeps me a real blogger. Only sharing the edited highlights of my life where I’m showing off a new dress or lipstick isn’t what my life is like on a daily basis.

Being sad is a normal part of life and pretending that the bad days don’t happen isn’t an effective way of dealing with them. Accepting their existence and working your way through them is the only way to a happy life. I don’t want to pretend I’m happy all the time, because the truth is that I’m not, sometimes I find life impossibly hard and pretending like I don’t is like pretending to be someone I’m not. I never want to do that on here, I want to showcase the real me.

Next time you’re having a bad day, remember it’s a normal part of life. There has to be a little rain to make a rainbow!

Outfit Diaries – My 18th Birthday Party

IMG_8078

Sorry for the lack of blog post yesterday – I was absolutely exhausted and couldn’t muster up enough energy to write a post and to be honest with you, my eyes are closing typing this. I thought I’d update you on what I was wearing at my 18th birthday party which happened on Saturday 23rd September.

I wore this gorgeous dress from Chi Chi London, which I got through ASOS, and I’m head over heels in love with it. It has delicate lace sleeves (which don’t pop up on to your shoulders!), sheer neckline and a beautiful full lace skirt. I felt like a princess!

I paired this dress with my classic white block heels from Boohoo and a few special pieces of jewellery that I got for my birthday. My Pandora rose gold heart clasp charm bracelet, rose gold tiara princess ring and rose gold bow ring. They added the final touches to a very pretty, fancy outfit.

I’d just like to say thank you to everyone who came to my party who made it a great success and for everyone online who wished me a happy birthday, it’s much appreciated. Now, once I’ve recovered from all the partying I’ll be getting back into the swing of things with my blogging.

The Start Of A Fresh New Me?

For me, birthdays are a very scary time. For someone who is terrified of growing up turning 18 seemed terrifying so I figured the best way to approach it would be to find positive sides of it. One way I decided to do this was to see it as a fresh new beginning, which allows me to almost make new year’s resolutions and improve myself as I grow older.

I’ve had the typical question of, ‘how does it feel to be 18’ and usually I don’t feel any different but this year I’ve actually felt a slight change. I’m determined to remain a little more positive and make this year a happy and successful year. Being happy is a very important part of life and the chance to start again is the best way to reassess your goals.

I know this is a short blog post but I just wanted to put this idea out there and share with you how I’m dealing with my birthday.

Outfit Diaries – My 18th Birthday

58942643-7EF6-4523-A488-6E52D111A09F

Yesterday was my 18th birthday (basically the best excuse ever to wear a pretty dress!) and I had a lovely day spent with my family and friends. I am extremely grateful for all the birthday wishes and presents from everyone and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I thought I’d share what I wore for my special day with you all in a quick little blog post so that you can shop this beautiful dress.

This gorgeous dress (it’s unfortunately currently sold out but I’ve found incredibly similar ones here and here) has been on my wishlist since earlier this year when I first spotted it, then quickly put it on an expensive wishlist as it came in at £75 (a tiny bit out of my budget…) but it eventually came down to just £14.50 and I don’t think I’ve ever clicked the order button so quickly. I paired this stunning dress with these pink block heels from Primark and of course the obligatory birthday sash and badge.

I was lucky enough to receive a gorgeous Pandora rose gold heart clasp charm bracelet and an ’18’ charm from my parents and my sister and a rose gold bow ring from my friends. Paired with my Pandora princess ring I was fully adorned in rose gold!

I had such a wonderful day and I can’t wait for my party this Saturday.  Thank you to everyone who helped make it amazing!
