Stiletto Croc shoes

Hey guys, so the crocs have been made into a stiletto!. I have actually never worn or owned a pair of crocs but I bought some for my kids and I have seen quite a lot of nurses wearing them at work and am guessing they are comfortable as nurses have to be on their feet for long periods of time and need comfortable shoes.

Now truth be told, the original design is not the best looking shoes out there and alot of people including me were not impressed by them.

But now days there are new attractive, different designs that everyone can find a pair they like.

Recently the designer Balenciaga has come up with a stiletto version which looks cute, this version has flags and flowers stickers on them as well as the trade mark holes in the shoes which I don’t think look good on it on the front part.

Ummm if it was affordable I might buy it but at the same time I would not be upset or in my feelings if I don’t have a pair. It’s one of those shoes that your 50/50 about and maybe it should be left as the original croc.

What are your thoughts guys? Would you buy and wear it or should crocs be left as the original design? Let me know in the comment section below.

How to style the same cropped trousers 3 different ways

*NOT SPONSORED*

Finding items of clothes you can style and wear different ways is not hard to find, items like leather jackets or blazers, trousers, tops or even dresses are the kind of items you can wear lots of different ways and people might not even know you wore it around them already.

These are the kind of items i like to purchase because i am not the type of person to be buying new items of clothing everytime am going out (unlike my sister lol) i like to reuse my clothes till the wheels fall off literally sometimes lol

I styled these cropped trousers from primark 3 ways, sporty, smart and kind of winter look.

The pressure to stay trendy in the fashion blogging world

So I have been blogging for 2 years now and my topics range from parenthood to fashion to makeup/skincare. At one point I thought maybe I should focus on one niche as that’s what most bloggers do and advice you to do but I thought I don’t just like one thing, I like a number of things and would like to share my opinion on all that interest me. So I decided to pick a number of topics that I felt passionate about and make me me and these were parenthood as am a mum, fashion as I enjoy putting together outfits and getting all dressed up, and skincare, who doesn’t like to take care of their skin.

My first year of blogging was me being very excited to have a blog where I was able to express myself and do what I want, it was my little corner where I would pour out all my feelings and stress and leave it there, then I got pregnant with the twins and I slacked a bit because all I wanted to do was sleep as this pregnancy was taking it all out of me. But overt the last 4 months I decided to really work on my blogging and take it to the next level and so I started to look into ways to improve my topics and really think about what I wanted to share with the world.

I started to read and take interest in other blogs like mine and as much as I found them motivating, they also made me feel quite intimidated and started doubting myself If really this is something I should be doing or is it really for me and being a prayerful person I prayed about it and asked God to give me a sign if this career is for me because no matter how much you try if its not meant for you, its not for you. As I was looking through these blogs it seemed like I needed to have quite a lot of money in order to buy the latest fashion style because it seemed like they were always on point with the latest trends and someone like me can’t afford to be splashing the cash because I don’t have an extra disposable income. This made me think that maybe this is why I don’t have a big following because I cant afford the trendy stuff which demotivated me.

(NON SPONSORED) During my research I found this blogger called Marina De Giovanni who is a very successful blogger and business coach among other things. She wrote an e-book called “a lifestyle bloggers guide” which I bought skeptically but once I started reading it I quickly reached for my paper and pen because she was talking knowledge that I understood and not gibberish. She took it back to basic from setting up your blog site to your first blog post to finding a topic. This to me was a sign because once I finished the book I knew what to do and where to take my blog and I have been on a hype since then.

I have come to realize that fashion is what you make it, yes you should try and buy the latest fashion but if you cant, some of the new trends are the same ones that came out 5 years ago which means you probably have them in your wardrobe you just have to dust them off and put your own twist to it and your up to date.

But remember always stay true to your passion and what you love because this is you life and your career.

NEW FESTIVAL TREND CALLED “Glitter butts”

It seems like every year their is a new festival trend and this year is no different. The newest trend is called “Glitter butts” and it was started by an Artist called Mia Kennigton, Mia is an artist from The Gypsy Shrine who are based in U.K. They travel around the world offering different services from face painting to body art to hair braiding and now glitter butts.

This trend is spreading like wild fire as all over Instagram those brave enough are doing this trend. some people are wearing the glitter with out any bottoms and others are opting for hot pants or bikini bottoms so whatever works for you work it!.

HOW TO APPLY IT

So according to my research in order to get the glitter to stick you have to first cover your butt with styling gel and while the gel is still wet use a brush to press the glitter on ( the best glitter to use is the chunky one but you can still use any glitter you want) if you want to add more glam to your glitter butt you can also add gemstones using body adhesive.

And lastly, you don’t have to do this step but its recommended you fix your glitter with a setting spray and then you are ready to shine and wow the crowd.

And remember to use makeup wipes or and oil based makeup remover to take the glitter off.

So whatever way you chose to wear it,make sure you take pictures to remember this trend and have fun with it there is no right or wrong way to wear “Glitter butts”.

“AND IF THE MUSIC IS GOOD, YOU DANCE”

So the music festival season has started, Coachella seems live and fun but I don’t think I will ever get a chance to go with prices starting at £310 for a general admission ticket! that is an eye watering price. Then you have the Wireless Festival which is more affordable with prices starting at £55 for a certain day and Glastonbury Leeds Festival which is also different prices for different day but prices can start from £205 which include access all weekend as well as camping.

I have never actually been to a music festival before ( i hope I will one day go) but this outfit to me screams fun and comfortable. the blouse is thin and airy so if its hot it will let air in and keep you cool as well as prevent you from getting sun burn ( I know the mum in me kicked in lol) but if its a bit cold and wet let most of the festivals in UK tend to be it can also give you a little bit of cover so you can stay a bit warm.

The skirt is a stretchy material which is great as there is a lot of food to eat at these festivals so you need some thing that will let your stomach expand and breath as you go through all that food. The band around the waist is also stretchy which makes it very comfortable to wear and move around.

I am also wearing a bralet which has pink and white flowers on it which I though has a real festival vibe going on and its a fun little outfit to add to your festival outfit and its doing the picker boo look without exposing and showing too much . It has no wires what so ever in it but it provide the support needed and its really comfortable.

For shoes I would go for something really comfortable as I would be on my feet for a long time and you need something you can dance in all day and all night.

IMG_1831

The shoes am wearing are Next hogans which are so comfortable and airy to wear, the sole is chunky which gives you some height but it helps your feet so they are not hurting or too low on on the ground to cause uncomfortableness. The outside material is cloth but a thick cloth, they do not weight you down though after the festival you will have to wash them but hey that’s style for ya lol.

So what do you think of this outfit? would you wear it to a festival or nah?

WHATS IN MY BAG?

Recently my bag seems to be getting heavier and heavier and turning into a baby bag instead of my personal hand bag. The babies have their own bag but I just find it so much easier to just throw thing in my bag and go. Now days I only take the babies bag if I am going to be out for a while which means I need the milk stuff which cant fit in my bag nor do I want them in my bag lol.

IMG_1779

I am going to let you into my bag and some of the things lurking in there. Firstly I have to have pampers and wipes because I can not afford to leave my house without them, I also carry the dummy container ( the one with the green cover) which I sometimes put some hot water just to keep them sterile. I also carry my note book all the time which I use a lot as when ever I have an idea for the blog or vlog I am able to quickly write it down before I forget. I also have my vlogging camera which I need to replace as this one has little space and the footage is not that good, a magazine is also needed as I need to keep up with whats going on in pop culture and fashion.

My make up bag which I have been using so much recently because am starting to enjoy dolling myself up. I get periods where I just cant be asked to plaster my face as it means I cant touch my face really and with the twins I feel I am forever trying to avoid or stop them from touching my face or it will end up on them but mummy has to stay on flick and presentable so we make it work lol.

I have quite a few thing in there but am sure you don’t want to hear all that’s in my bag but those are a few of the things in there and am sure I will be adding more lol.

ACCESSORIES – CHOKER NECKLACES

I am not a massive fan of necklaces and I really don’t wear them. Being that I get heat rash in summer I don’t wear them as they irritate my neck and in winter they are cold lol (I know am weird). But I have found a necklace that I absolutely LOVE! and its comfortable on my skin  what ever season. So Chokers are my best friends right now (though my partner don’t like their name).

img_1630

I have always thought how do they breath? ain’t it too tight?( I know stupid) but since it is the IT jewellery accessory I thought let me give it a try and boy I have not stopped buying them lol. They come in different colours as well as sizes and style which give you versatility. I love them.
