Happy (mid) November everyone! I have to apologise again, I seem to have slipped into my full time job mode again and haven't had the time to squeeze in blogging. I struggle sometimes to summon up the confidence to post, mainly because I'm in love with bloggers like Sophia Rosemary and Megan Ellaby who are two of the BEST bloggers I have come across in a long time. Honestly check them out.
But now I have just hit my 26th Birthday (Woo I managed to stay alive) and I just spent the weekend with some of my friends from school I thought I would look back over the top 26 things that I know now I'm 26. I'm talking more life, style and beauty rather than solid facts.
1. Age doesn't matter anymore. In our parents generation people met and fell in love when they were 16. Everyone was pregnant and ready to be 'families' at 26. But now so many avenues are open for you to start living your settled down life at any age, that age really is becoming just a number.

How cool hey?! So here are my outfits! My selections have come from my most loved online retailers, Missguided, Glamorous UK, Asos, Very and Lavish Alice. Check out the competition here http://www.moneysupermarket.com/home-insurance/passion-for-fashion/ . Party This look I aimed to create a classy but chic party look. As the seasons are focused on Autumn/Winter I knew that bare legs needed to be contrasted with a higher neck and blazer. (For temperature reasons) For this outf…
"Homeboy wore combat boots to the beach" might be one of the most memorable from every 20 something year old girls teenage life. We all fancied Justin Bobby and we all secretly wanted to be Audrina riding on the back of his motorbike with our own flowery helmet...or was that just me?
Either way time has past since then and its becoming clear that it really doesn't matter that JB wore his trusty combat boots to the beach...why you ask? Well I am an avid believer in ugly clothes.
Yes. The uglier the better. I have one of those wardrobes where people will text me saying "Oh my god I've found a top you would love" and it will most likely consist of one or more of my 5 must haves:
3. High neck
4. Leopard Print
5. And any form of short skirt.
Even one of my friends Dads has turned round to her before now and said "That's a very Lucy dress" What can I say. Ugly clothes are the best. So quite frankly if JB wanted to rock his grub…
