The 6 Goals I want To Achieve In 2021

2021 is my year 2020 pushed, pulled, and stretched me to the point of breaking, and like I mentioned in another blog post that I wrote, it’s actually made me not take things for granted as much. Usually I don’t do the things I want to do because I’m the one stopping myself, either from fear and anxiety, or because I just assume that I can do it at any other time, however, last year taught me a big lesson. Being stopped from doing all the things I would usually do, and all the things I wanted to do, frustrated me and made me realise that life can be short. It’s a privilege to be here on Earth and live the way we do, and I should stop letting the anxieties in my head hold me back. Things have taken a turn for the worse again, and we’ve gone back into a national lock down for 6 weeks, so I’m still being stopped from my goals, but I’m not taking anything for granted, and as soon as things open up properly, I’m not waiting. I’m going to push myself into starting my life properly, not coasting, opening myself up, and living the year that I have dreamed of. Here are 6 goals of mine that I am going to achieve this year: Remember my dream of going to the United States? It’s been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. I have always been afraid of flying, so I’ve never been on a plane, but this is the year I am getting on a plane by…

My Outfits From 2020

Rounding out 2020 with my outfits from the year Another year has come to a close, and one of my favourite, traditional posts to do is the roundup of my favourite outfits from the year! I didn’t get to share as many outfits during 2020 as I usually do every other year, but that’s for obvious reasons! A lot of this year came to a halt because of lockdowns and everything else, it meant I wasn’t able to do as many shoots for many months. However, with that being said, I think I managed to get quite a few, considering! There were 37 published outfits on my fashion blog, so that’s pretty good going! I’m keeping this blog post short, as it’s mainly to roundup and focus on the outfits, but please do let me know what outfit here was your favourite! It was a big change going from Adam shooting my photos at the start of the year, to my mum taking them for the last couple of months. I will also be doing a new year post very soon, talking about my plans for 2021 and opening up a little bit more. Happy new year everyone! I genuinely hope that it is a happy new year, and not a happy new tier (for us in the UK, ha ha!). Lorna xx.

The Small Things I Was Thankful For This Year

It’s the little things in life… 2020 has been incredibly tough for everyone, with everything that has been going on. And I know I touched on it briefly in another post, but it’s been one of the hardest years of my entire life. I’m always honest with you here, and I feel lately I haven’t opened up as much as I used to and connected with you, and that’s purely because I have been in a very vulnerable and unhappy place for some time. I don’t think I have ever cried as much in my entire life put together, as I have this year. It’s been one hell of a journey, but I’m finally starting to feel like I’m in a better place at the moment. With this in mind, I thought I would do some writing/sharing therapy here and explain a little bit about my year, and then focus on the positives of what’s kept me going this year, and I’m extremely thankful for. As you know, in January, Adam and I broke up after being together around 12 years and engaged. I had known him for almost half of my lifetime, and he’d been my best friend for that duration of time. Things didn’t work out in the end, and even though we decided to remain friends and work together, that didn’t happen and unfortunately he has moved on in a different direction. This is really sad as he’s important to me, and I can only hope things change in the future. Then there’s another guy, one that I have been friends with since late last year, from…

My Subtle, Yet Stylish Festive Outfit

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Merry Christmas Eve! I’m not posting on the actual day, so that’s why I’m wishing you all a very Happy Christmas right now! If you are able to celebrate it, as I know there’s a lot in the UK who are in Tier 4 and aren’t allowed. The times are really hard right now, but I feel like now is the time where we really need to appreciate what we have, the meaning of friends and family, and not taking things for granted. Even just the everyday, simple things like going to the shop, it’s to be appreciated. I also have a couple of posts coming up before December ends, including a roundup of my outfits from 2020, so definitely keep checking back! That will be on the 27th and the 31st! Now getting to my outfit here, I was wearing my old Topshop Rainbow Metallic Jumper/Sweater (which you have seen before here and here). I styled it with my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Coated Black, as I think this jumper looks amazing with waxed jeans! I then added some festive sparkle with my Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots in Anthracite, and finished it off with my ASOS Western Belt, that I have worn numerous times before. In the past, I have worn an Elf costume or a Mrs. Santa suit, and even some crazy Christmas jumpers, but this year, I wanted to keep it a little more classy, a little more muted, and more matching of my personality at the moment. The jumper itself is knitted with gold metallic threads, so it actually sparkles really nicely…

The Feather Dress

A Feather Print Dress With A Leather Jacket Happy Saturday everyone! I feel like we are officially out of Autumn and into Winter now, however the temperatures are still fairly warm for December. I’m sad to say goodbye to the beautiful orange hues of the leaves though, but I saved this post here for the last Autumn shoot as I think it embodies the season perfectly! The print on the dress complements the location magnificently, and I love it! I was wearing the Allsaints Darley Fusion Dress here, and I layered the Allsaints Balfern Leather Jacket over my shoulders to give it a little bit of a tougher vibe. I then finished it off with my Saint Laurent West Harness Boots in Black, and my Celine Nano Luggage Bag in Glazed Nut. The print on this dress is absolutely gorgeous! If you remember the previous outfit I wore which featured an Allsaints feathered dress with a jumper/sweater over the top (see it here), the dress on that had a very similar design, which I have fallen in love with. I have been eyeing it up in a blouse design too, that’s how much I adore it! I’m not sure if this print is entirely seasonal though and only works for the Autumn months, but we will see! The reason I styled this dress with my leather jacket and my black boots is because I wanted to bring a little bit more of a tougher vibe to a feminine dress. This dress itself isn’t overly girly, it has a more mature vibe to it, but pairing it with some rock and…

Christmas In The City Of Bath

Apparently it’s Christmas next week, and that seriously crept up on me really quickly. This year has been a crazy one for every single one of us, and even though I’ve had a tough time of it myself (two relationship break ups and some depression), I know that everyone has had their own struggles when it comes to Covid ruining everything during 2020. It’s been the cause of relationship break ups, families missing time with each other, travel bans, businesses having to close down, people losing their jobs, and unfortunately a lot of deaths. I don’t think this year will ever be forgotten and it will be one that is in the history books for centuries to come. With all of that in mind, I know that Christmas this year will be a struggle for a lot of people, not being able to spend it with loved ones, but I’m hoping now that the Vaccine is in place in some countries, things will start to pick up, but you never know. With all of this in mind, normal life has taken a backseat and I don’t really go out that much now as I hate wearing masks (I feel claustrophobic) and the restrictions and rules on everything just make things far less enjoyable. However, I did go out on Sunday with my brother and dad, to get some lunch and walk around the Bath town. It’s the first time I have seen the Christmas decorations this year, and they look magical! The lights in Southgate (where I’m standing with the umbrella) are absolutely gorgeous! I was happy that it was…

Allsaints Leowa Maxi Dress With Knitwear

Knitwear Over A Maxi Dress Outfit Isn’t this two piece dress just incredible? I had to start this blog post off with that sentence, because it’s how I feel every single time I look at it. I noticed this Allsaints Leowa Fusion 2 in 1 Dress a month or more ago on their website and I completely fell in love with it. The retail price for such a statement dress was a bit much for me though, so I ended up purchasing it at 30% off during the Black Friday discounts! It’s now even cheaper though and has 40% off, so I recommend snapping it up if you think it’s gorgeous too! I took a size medium in this two piece as the size small dress underneath was a bit too tight in the chest area, so the medium ended up giving a much nicer, casual fit. I wasn’t too sure on the knitted jumper/sweater that comes with it as it’s a little itchy with the wool content, but after a few minutes I got used to it and it was ok. Another thing I wasn’t sure on was the length, I thought it would be too long for me, but as it turns out, it’s the most perfect height for my ankle boots! I wanted to keep this whole outfit simple, but statement, so I paired this Allsaints Leowa Dress with my Gianvito Rossi Gold Boots, and finished it off with my Celine Nano Luggage Bag in Glazed Nut. Just two simple accessories to complete the outfit, but they make a statement on their own and sit well with…
