Biker boots and setting new goals

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Pleated yellow midi skirts and lace-up biker boots, I flipping think so! I am so into this girly gone bad contrasting look, that we are seeing everywhere at the minute. This skirt and boots combo is exactly what I am talking about, a little bit girly, a little bit edgy. Plus this cut-off sweater from Zara, is an absolute staple that Zara will bring out year after year and I will (of course) keep wearing year after year.

I love the hope of the new year, and all of the goal setting, and list writing possibilities it brings (for those of you that know me, will know that I love a list!) however this year I want to do things differently. No waiting around until New Year’s Eve, I’m setting my goals now. I am naturally a goal setter, and it really helps me to clear my mind, but I wouldn’t set that I achieve the goals I set that regularly and this frustrates me! Are my goals too unrealistic, are my milestones too unachievable? I actually think it is both of those things, but also so much more, so what am I going to do differently?

Firstly I am going to visualise my goals, it’s difficult to motivate yourself to t end goal if you can’t see visualise what you are trying to achieve. So if you are trying to lose weight, cut a picture out of a magazine to motivate yourself on your journey. Making yourself accountable in my experience is hugely important. So I want to get fitter, and the best way for me to do this as a blogger & Instagrammer is to make myself accountable on my Instagram stories, tell my followers what I will be doing, and ask them for encouragement when I am struggling. Make yourself accountable to your friends and family, when you tell people, they will do all they can to help & encourage you. The next step is to break your goals down, of course as a blogger I want to grow and develop my blog, but getting to my end goal may seem massive and unachievable, so what should I do? Break this goal down to manageable bite sized pieces and set milestones. It is so much easier to visualise where you need to go and what you need to achieve, if you can see the steps in between, and also the sense of achievement when you hit each milestone. I hope this helps & I am now genuinely off to write my new goals, wish me luck!

Cord Dungaree Love

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

So I discovered Lucy & Yak by chance on the shopping/selling app depop and was instantly obsessed with their brand. Number one, everything is handmade, in the UK, I mean we all do really want to know where out clothes have come from, and where better than here in the UK. Number two, they design their items to create curves on slim body types and room for those of us already blessed with curves. I mean come on, isn’t that just freaking cool!

Number three, these handmade black cord dungarees are only £30, plus I love how you can tie the straps. This makes these dungarees suitable for a few different sizes (for reference they are one size, and I am a size 8/10) even my beautiful yummy Mummy’s who want to still feel cool while pregnant.

I absolutely love the fit, I wore them all day in the sun, and because they are loose fitting it was like a dream! Oh also, they do these beauties in pink…..100% next on my list. I am wearing the dungarees with a yellow shirred off the shoulder crop top, and of course my Givenchy slides, which of course look good with everything!
