WHY I'M NOT GOING TO BE SO HARD ON MYSELF IN 2019

22 December 2018


I've decided this year that I'm not going to be rounding up 2018 with any Christmas posts, I'm not a festive person and every year I have struggled to bring Christmas to Sister Of The Moon without forcing it, so instead I have decided to focus more on the next coming year.

THE NOVEMBER LOVE LIST

11 December 2018


December is heeeereeeee! Oh how very late am I writing this, November was a busy month for me in terms of work and I feel more confident in myself and my work, although other creative outlets have had to take a step back.

BEING OKAY WITH NOT HAVING A 'GIRL GANG'

22 November 2018


I wouldn't say that I'm a loner, I have friends dotted about here and there and I've made so many friends through blogging too. However, I wouldn't say that I have a particular group of friends (or 'girl gang') to go to either!

FAST FASHION, THE ENVIRONMENT AND ME

8 November 2018


I've been mulling over this subject for a while, and it's something I wasn't sure about writing as a big part of my life is a 'bad' part of fast fashion. But here I am, rambling some words down on Sister Of The Moon to bring together a blog post about how I am dealing with the effects my life has on fast fashion, including the changes I am making! 

THE OCTOBER LOVE LIST

4 November 2018


Happy November! Well, this has flown by hasn't it. It feels like it was two minutes ago since I was planning and writing out my first ever Love List, which was The September Love List! Admittedly, I haven't really thought about blogging or done anything in terms of blogging for the whole of October.

KNITWEAR LOVE

9 October 2018


It's no secret that I'm an Autumn kind of girl, I get excited for Autumnal seasons throughout the year and am so eager for the opportunity to wrap up! Last year I wrote a post about The Reasons Why Autumn Is My Favourite Season and in this I included getting an excuse to wrap up. Wrapping up also means KNITWEAR LAYERS! I am a sucker for knitwear.

THE SEPTEMBER LOVE LIST

6 October 2018


For my blog I know I want to expand out to including more of my interests, so I've decided to create a monthly roundup called My Love List, this will include various things that I've loved the most throughout the month! From fashion, TV and music, things on the internet to day-to-day things!

SLEEPING IN STYLE WITH HUNKEMÖLLER

16 September 2018


If you're like me when it comes to bed time and you just throw on any old pyjamas and hop straight into bed, then having the opportunity to style some pretty fancy nightwear is a new and exciting experience! I have always loved silky lace nightwear but stuck to what I know, so when Hunkemöller  contacted me about their Pamela collection, I was thrilled.

TAKING OUTFIT INSPIRATION FROM TV SHOWS

31 August 2018


A thing I often do is watch TV shows and films and dream of amazing old school outfits, hair and make up and wish I could pull it off. Especially the sixties to the eighties, how dreamy! I have always joked that I was born in the wrong era, as being a nineties gal doesn't quite reflect on a lot of my music tastes and fashion that I love, too.

CUSTOMISING A JACKET WITH PUNKY PINS

30 August 2018


I've been wanting to add my own personal touch to a jacket for such a long time, building up a collection of pins and patches was the aim for me, I wasn't getting very far but I had a 'lust list' of pins as long as my arm, and surprise surprise 99% were them were from Punky Pins.

TAKING BACK CONTROL OF MY MIND

19 August 2018


Mental health is something that I am quite open about online and the idea of bringing more mental health related posts to my blog is something I am quite interested in doing, as you may have seen on Sister Of The Moon lately! I thought I'd share with you the process I've been going through to take back control of my mind and get help with the problems I have been facing.


BEING A TOMBOY

13 August 2018


Growing up I always had more of a 'tom boy' side to me, you would always see me in trackies and trainers, or baggy jeans and a football top. My hair was pulled back in a tight ponytail and make up wasn't discovered until a few years into secondary school. Although you wouldn't see me dressed like this nowadays I sometimes incorporate hints of my tom boy side into my outfits.


WHY I DON'T BELIEVE THAT BLOGGING IS DYING

5 August 2018


Something I see almost everyday online is a lot of talking about the death of blogging, how 'nobody reads blogs anymore' and people giving up their blogs because of all of this too. I have been taking time to think it over and form an opinion of my own about it all. So I thought I'd create a post about why I think blogging isn't dying.


BEING MORE OPEN ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH

16 July 2018


Mental health is something so many people struggle with every single day, some people are open about how they are doing and some people aren't. I used to be quiet about how my mental health was doing but recently I've been a bit more open about it.

THINGS I CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING AN OUTFIT

6 July 2018


It may seem strange to some but piecing together an outfit is something I put a lot of thought in to, I am quite indecisive when it comes to choosing what I want to wear and I do consider a few factors when looking in my wardrobe and creating a look for the day.

WHY I'VE BEEN STRUGGLING TO BLOG RECENTLY

24 June 2018


After staring at where I keep my laptop for around 20 minutes, then turning it on and staring at Blogger for a good solid half an hour trying to think of what to write about to get me back into Blogging, I decided to do a bit of an honest chatty post about why my blog almost came to a standstill recently.

SUMMER STRIPES

28 May 2018


Do you ever just find that your wardrobe seems to mainly revolve around one particular thing? For me it's stripes. In particular, striped tshirts. One of the things I want to do is get other styles of striped items involved, so I've been keeping my eye out whenever I've been browsing stores and day-to-day at work, too.


MY TRAVEL STYLE

18 May 2018


If you follow me on my social media accounts you will know that a thing I have been doing lately is going on holiday to Disneyland, a lot, and I also am aiming to travel a lot more as seeing new places and exploring is something that I love to do! So for a twist on my usual type of post I thought I would show you the type of thing I wear for travelling.

MY TRANSITION FROM SPRING TO SUMMER

6 May 2018


Sun is finally here! Well... for now it is and we've had a few days of bliss which I'm hoping actually lasts for a bit instead of a couple of days. For this summer time I've set myself a little fashion goal and that is to add my florals to my summer style and add a bit of colour too, I love experimenting and this gives me the perfect opportunity.

MY STYLE HAS COME FULL CIRCLE

25 April 2018


As much as I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone and mixing it with with style I always seem to come back to certain comforts time and time again. Even with this I try and style my time and time again comforts differently, because of my fear of my style looking a bit repetitive.

TRYING TO BE BODY CONFIDENT DESPITE WHAT THE MEDIA TELLS YOU

13 April 2018


Oh, the media. Such a bittersweet thing that we all have in our day to day lives, whether it's social media, magazines, newspapers or TV. We all seem to not be able to spend time without a form of media in our lives, and for the most part it comes in handy for all of us. However sometimes what you see online and in magazines can be damaging.

THE £5 JUMPSUIT

4 April 2018


Do you ever see something in a shop but can't afford it as you are broke, so you decide to leave it and when you come back at a later date it has been put into the sale and you could just scream with happiness? Well that was me with this polka dot jumpsuit of dreams.

WHAT TAKING A BLOGGING BREAK MEANT FOR ME

31 March 2018


I don't know if any of you have noticed (unless you've seen me having a bit of a moan on social medias) but I have taken a bit of a blogging break. Mind you it wasn't for a very long time, it was only a month but for someone who tries to consistently publish content weekly it felt like an eternity!

FEELING UNINSPIRED

6 March 2018


I don't know what it is lately, but I've been feeling a bit out of touch and uninspired when it comes to my blog. I have a funny feeling the weather might be something to do with it. Miserable weather means us fashion bloggers have less time to go out and shoot for our blogs, and it can leave you feeling a little deflated!

TRYING SOMETHING NEW

24 February 2018


I am constantly on the look out for new styles to try out, I sort of take pride in styling new things and I wouldn't even say that I dress in any particular 'style' any more. And for today's post I've, yet again, styled something thats quite new to me!

COLD WEATHER, I AM OVER YOU

18 February 2018


For some reason, I sometimes like to say that I enjoy winter. I don't know who I'm trying to kid really, ever since a slight chill came in the air I've been begging for sun and to take off my big teddy coat that seems to be glued to my back every time I leave the house.

WORRYING ABOUT FAILURE

16 February 2018


I'm a bit of an over thinker, well I say a bit, but I mean a lot. I tend to take the littlest of things and get so worked up about it all that I blow it all out of proportion. This also applies to my blog too, I keep worrying about how my blog is doing or whether anyone actually reads it, when in reality everything is totally fine. I'm just worrying too much.

2018 THE YEAR OF THE BLOG

8 February 2018


We are a month or so into 2018 and there is one thing I've noticed... the amount of people smashing it with their blogs is massive! I used to be a bit jealous of others who are doing so well, but now I just feel incredibly happy for them and their achievements.

BLACK IS MY COMFORT COLOUR

6 February 2018


Mixing up styles and colours is my thing but lately I've been craving wearing one thing, and that is anything that is black. I used to have a whole wardrobe of black clothes and sometimes it's nice to come back to your roots and wear what you love most.

THE STRUGGLES OF BALANCING A FULL TIME JOB AND A BLOG

31 January 2018


Many people think running a blog isn't hard, some even think it's not worthy of being called a career too. What people don't realise is that there is a lot to blogging and having a full time job alongside blogging means there is a lot of juggling tasks and prioritising what is important. Today on Sister Of The Moon I have written about the realities of working full time and blogging also.

SIMPLY CHANGING A TOP CAN TRANSFORM A WHOLE LOOK

28 January 2018


I've been thinking recently about creating a post that shows how easily changing a garment in an outfit can change the whole feel of it, and I finally got the chance! From cute day look, to sassy night out look, this post shows how changing a top can really make a difference.

PRETTY IN PINK

24 January 2018


Oh look! A rare sight! Seeing me wear pink may be a shock to many (and to myself) but I actually do love adding colour and I do have a few pink items in my wardrobe... believe it or not.

KEEPING ORGANISED

19 January 2018


I am the worst person when it comes to being organised, I'm a very forgetful person and I always set myself things to do which never get done. In the past year or so I have noticed how unorganised and forgetful I have actually become, mix being super busy with working full time, my blog and trying (and failing) to be sociable, trying to remember other things becomes none existent.

I AM OVER INTERNET DRAMA, BECAUSE IT'S JUST THE INTERNET

18 January 2018


This post is a bit of a hard one to write for me, for myself and the vast majority of bloggers the dream is to work for yourself and to do so your life tends to revolve around the internet a bit more.  Plus I look up influencers who work full time and I would not want to offend anyone by writing this post... but some things have to be written about.

I'M OPTING FOR COMFORT

14 January 2018


Being a fashion blogger, and having your peers knowing that you are results in a bit of pressure to dress well and we all know that a lot of outfits can be uncomfortable and not practical.

AIMING TO BE MORE POSITIVE

10 January 2018


I'm not a positive person. Yes, that's how I'm starting this post. I've always had a more pessimistic personality since I was younger and my aim for this year is to turn it around and try to think of the positive side to things.

SNOW DAY

2 January 2018


Have you ever wanted to create a specific set of blog photos and you always had to wait until a certain time to do so? Well snow pictures are the one that I've always wanted to do. I always had a certain idea in mind that I could have a really wrapped up and snug outfit but of course this didn't happen and I've gone for the opposite.
