OOTD – Feline Fine

Hi, my beauties, hope all is well. After three weeks off, today sees my return to the world of work and a new job.

The Trend Behind The Outfit

Leopard Print

Leopard print is another timeless classic that most fashionistas have at least one classic item of clothing in this print. In the 1950’s Dior created a range of accessories and leopard print then became the must-have print. In the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s leopard print was associated with rock stars. No one rocked leopard print quite like Blondie. Fast forward to modern day, leopard print is a classic print that is regularly seen on fashion icons like Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. The animal print was seen on this years Spring/Summer Catwalks at Stella Mccartney, Givenchy and Prada. Models at Versace were seen wearing the print head to toe. If you’re not brave enough to wear the print from head to toe. The one key rule to remember when wearing leopard print is to treat it like any black item in your wardrobe. For example, instead of wearing a black blazer with a slogan tee and jeans, you could wear a leopard print blazer. Leopard print also looks good when clashed with other prints especially stripes and spots. A simple way to incorporate leopard print into an outfit is by adding leopard print accessories. The colour red also looks great when paired with leopard print. Leopard print is here to stay as it was also featured on the AW18 catwalks at Tom Ford, Victoria Beckham and Calvin Klein.

OOTD – Always Time For Polka Dots

Hey, my beauty’s hope all is well? Today’s post features this year’s Spring Summer trend Polka Dots. As Marc Jacobs Said, “There is never a wrong time for a Polka Dot.” I have to agree with him as i love polka dots and their classic print brightens up any day and outfit. This week has been relatively boring well asides from the fact that I finally spent some of my Birthday money on a Nasty Gal order, well they did have 40% off so how could a girl resist. I look forward to sharing some of the clothes in future blog posts.

The Trend Behind the outfit.

Polka Dots

Polka dots are a timeless piece that all fashionistas should have in their wardrobe, along with stripes, leopard print and florals. These prints are timeless and never go out of style.  Polka dots were seen on the catwalks of some of the biggest fashion brands from Valentino, Self – Portrait and Carolina Herrera. Polka dots were updated for Spring/summer 2018 with Monochrome styling and cool modern shapes.  This year more is definitely more.

Date ideas

Hi, my beauty’s, seen as today is Valentine’s Day and February is the month of love. I’ve decided to do a Date Ideas post to inspire you on how to make the most of your time with loved ones. Date night/day doesn’t always have to cost a bomb and family life doesn’t mean you can’t have fun on a date as a family. Happy Valentine’s day!!

Get Outside and do an activity

A simple idea but it’s cheap, easy to do and can be so much fun. You could go for a walk together, bike ride, play tennis or simply have a picnic. Me and the other half have been going on walks together and it’s nice to be outside talking with no stresses.

Cook your Favourite meal for each other.

This can be as easy or complicated as you choose to make it and as cheap and expensive. Just set the table, have the lights dimmed, candles lit, music playing and don’t burn the dinner.

Takeaway and Themed Nights

Order your favourite takeaway together, and have a themed night. Themes could include :

Comedy night -where you watch your favourite comedies and comedians.

Paranormal night – where you watch your fave horrors and paranormal tv programmes. This is one of our favourites to do.

Games night – where you play board games or play on the games console.

Pamper night – face masks, massages etc.

Enjoy a night out.

It’s nice sometimes as a couple to enjoy a night out at a nice restaurant, have a few cocktails or just have a few drinks down the local. As parents this is our biggest adjustment to not being able to just pop down to the local whenever we wanted to, now it’s just reserved for the odd occasion

Do a fun activity together.

We’re quite lucky these days that theirs so many activities to do. You could go ice-skating, bowling, cinema, arcades, crazy golf, laser tag etc.

Fun days out together.

Have a day out together on your own or as a family at a theme park, the zoo, a farm or a park. This is something I plan to do more this year.

Don’t just wait for dates to remind your loved one that you love them, tell them daily, text them just to see how there are, praise them and compliment them and kiss them when you get the chance.
