Red Lips & Leopard Print OOTD

Ello my lovelies!

I wanted to just drop off a quick outfit post before the weekend.

I went through a full on case of January blues recently, was mega run down and just *meh*. But after a Saturday spent dolling myself up and indulging in a bit of me time, I soon started to feel myself again.

I honestly don’t know what came over me, I have heard on many occasions about S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder) a condition which affects people during the winter and I’m not saying I have it but I can seriously understand the reasoning behind it and how the long dark months can affect individuals. I recently have been going to work early in the morning in the dark, come home late at night in the dark, eat and go to sleep and repeat cycle, its so repetitive and mundane that it really has sapped the life out of me. These things aren’t to be overlooked I suppose, quality of life and your mental state are really important things to look after. I am a firm believer in a healthy mind! I don’t want to feel like that again, horrible horrible feeling!

So anyway, a couple of Saturdays ago, I threw on some leopard print, slicked my lips with a bit of red and off I went for a bit of retail therapy! It’s amazing what red lippy can do for confidence, actually it’s amazing what confidence can do for red lippy! I always find it’s one of those really bold statements that says ‘I’m out to tackle the world, and no one is going to stop me!’ and that’s exactly how I felt….

Red Patent Bow Shoes – New Look

Red Lippy – Rimmel

These pictures were taken in an Evans changing room when I went for a bra fitting (big mistake!). But that’s a whole other story!

Right now I need to go and get my skates on and get ready to haul my ass down to London for some Plus London 2 shiz!

My lesson today? Look after yourselves lovelies! Your mind is as, if not more important than your matter! Stay beautiful!

Big Love

    You might want to invest in a daylight simulation alarm clock. Lumie and Philips make them and Boots sell them, so lots of lovely Advantage points! They're roughly £100 but worth every penny. Basically it wakes you up with gradually increasing light, just like a summer's morning would.You set the time and how long you want the light to fade in for. They come with a proper alarm as well, just in case the light doesn't wake you up. Because the light is gentle you don't wake up feeling groggy. Ours also comes with a white noise feature, which drowns out any noisy neighbours at bedtime and is really soothing.

    Me and my fella wouldn't be without one now. We've had ours about 6 years and it makes SUCH a difference x x

    HOTNESS! And yeah, red lippy does help with confidence! 🙂

    And you're so right about winter blues. I'm from Finland, and there people are SO DAMN depressed, and studies say it's because of the long and dark winter. And I know that of myself too, I feel better in here than I did in Finland, but winter still does get me down a bit.
