Style File: Spring Sisterhood

It feels like SO long since I shared any outfits with you guys, maybe just because it really has been quite a while. I feel like I have been in a bit of a fashion slump recently and have struggled with where to turn next. You know, just really lacking inspiration. Normally when this happens I go shopping to pick up some new pieces that I can pair with some old bits & bobs, and 'voila' I escape the rut - but not this time. Instead of shopping for new inspiration I have actually done the opposite & boy did it feel good. I had a big wardrobe clear out, found a few items that I had forgotten and scoured Pinterest for outfits that I could put together with what I already had. The result? No more fashion slump and this killer outfit. Yay for new approaches! 

Winter Boots Lovin'

It is now March and in the UK that means that last week the official first day of spring happened. Well, apparently. It actually couldn't have felt less like Spring had arrived, as we were deep in snow and battling minus temperatures... definitely not spring weather. Luckily, I hadn't yet broken out the denim jackets & pastel colours. Phew! In fact, instead I had made a new winter purchase that has proven to be perfect for our ongoing cold weather. Meet my new furry friends, the winter boots to trump all winter boots. You guessed it, it's Dr Martens time! 

March Goals

I know I'm going to sound like a broken record, but how where did February go? I feel like it sprinted past me calling goodbye as pranced into the sunset, and now here we are in March. Can you believe it! For me March is actually looking like it is going to be a really busy month with visiting friends, family birthday celebrations and getting stuff done. I'm really looking forward to it, but there are a few things that I want to do that I know will make it even better. Something that I really like to do is to set myself a few personal goals each month. It is a really great way to learn to 'seize the day' (as they say) & get stuff done. This month I seem to have a few more goals than usual and so I thought I'd share my ambitions with you in the hope that 1. you can hold me to them and 2. they inspire you to set yourself a few things to aim for this March. Let's reach for the stars people! Or at least to a notepad to begin planning what we want to achieve...

Exploring | A Guide to Amsterdam

For the past few days I have been in chilly Amsterdam with my family for a short city break, very short actually; we went on Wednesday and came back on Friday! After an amazing whirlwind (or should that be snowstorm!) trip I thought what better to do than to write a blog post all about what we got up to. Firstly, so you guys can find out all the hotspots and places not to miss in Amsterdam if you are planning a trip (if you aren't you soon will be!) and secondly to act as an amazing  record of all of the beautiful places that my family & I visited together to look back on in years to come. Let's get exploring!
