You are so farfetch!

I love fashion, everybody that knows me, knows that I love different styles. I would say that I don't have a particular style but then some friends might say different. 

I recently received an email for FarFetch and was asked to create some looks using the Fendi monster for Halloween. How could I say no!! I love the collection. I think its playful and fun but still fashionable enough. Here are some of my looks that I have put together. Which one do you prefer? 

I love love love a scarf!!!! I would wear a scarf all year round if I could. I love those walks where the sun is out and I can wear a baggy jumper and a nice warm scarf around my neck. I absolutely love this Fendi Bag Bug scarf. I would team this with a plain top so that it doesn't take away the character of the scarf. 

team the scarf with this lovely 3.1 Phillip Lim Cap Sleeve T-shirt. 

Next up is this lovely jumper. I was never a jumper fan before as I am not a fan of layers but over the last 2 years, I have actually enjoyed  shopping for jumpers. As I love wearing a lot of black, I love jumpers that I can make a statement with or that stand out. I have quite a few slogan jumpers which I absolutely love. This Fendi 'bag Bugs' sweater just does the job. It is defiantly a jumper that would stand out! 

Here I have teamed it with work trousers as I think the fun should be taken into the work environment and F.U.N is definitely written with this jumper. 
Moschino slim fit

Saint Laurent Classic Skinny Jeans. 

So here are my two favourite styles that I have put together with the Fendi Mosnter. I have absolutely loved putting these styles together. I really think everyone should embrace a little monster in them and as it is the run up to Halloween, you have not excuses. I want to say thank you to FarFetch for this assignment. It has been really fun. 
If you want to shop the looks that I have put up on this blog go to the FarFetch website as all outfits where chosen from this amazing site. 

Here are some of the other items from the Fendi monster collection that caught my attention. 


Mental Health Day

This week was World Mental Health day. I wouldn't normally talk about this so openly but then, that is the problem; we should be talking about it more. 

Now I must make this very clear, I am no expert in this area and some may say that I haven't a clue what I am talking about, I can only go by what I have experienced which I am sharing. 

I recently wrote a piece about my confidence, however this topic has always been something that has been near me for a very long time. I have seen depression at its worst but I have also seen it at its best. I have lived with this in my life for a very long time. It's not easy and you wake up each day expecting the unexpected. This was something I was becoming accustomed to. 

In my opinion the only way you can seek help is to first admit to yourself that you need help. I began this blog after a really horrible break up. I was able to put a brave face in front of everyone but deep down I was in a really bad place and  beginning to suffer from anxiety. 

I often felt that I couldn't breathe and everything was getting on top of me. Then came a very important week in my working career. This is when I felt the most alone. I couldn't breathe, I was overthinking everything, making myself panic and worry. I wasn't thinking straight. It was at this point, my boss told me to go straight to the doctor. This was the best advice I was given. The doctor told me I needed to take some time of work as I was beginning to show systems pf post traumatic stress and anxiety. I did this and managed to get some of my strength back. 

This year my anxiety came back after getting some news. I have always been one to over analyse everything and I always think the worst. I am my own worst enemy at times and really hard on myself. It wasn't until somebody told me that I should see somebody about my anxiety that it actually made me think. 

Speaking about it with friends does help but you feel that you are being a burden on them. I have an amazing group of friends, who I cannot praise enough, but even they must get tired of listening to me. 

The gym has also been a place where I can just go and not have to think. Like I have mentioned before, I was never a gym girl, and the thought of going to the gym or even doing PE at school was a big no no. But now it is my safe haven. I love going there, playing my music and work out. We all know about my curse of personal trainers but working out with them is painful but the result is always rewarding. I always feel I have fulfilled something when I have completed a session, even though it means that the days after I can barely walk, sit or run. My new trainer Alex makes training fun and I laugh a lot, even when I cannot climb down the stairs. I love training with him (there will be a post about my PT sessions coming soon). 

I am not saying that you have to go to the gym, but find something that you can enjoy and forget about the world for a bit. Give yourself time (something that is so precious) and please please please talk to someone. If you can't talk to a friend, then there are great places where you can talk to professionals who are always there to help. I did this when I started university and I cannot tell you how helpful it was. The people are super friendly. They know which questions to ask and they never judge you. 

But above all, remember you are not alone.
