Isn’t it crazy that we can look back over this year and see how much has changed already? I admit, I can’t remember the resolution I promised myself for this year… But I might give it another shot.

This year has been incredible for me, making the most of last year’s studies, amazing new friends, experienced different cities and festivals and also taking new steps into the adult world of employment.

I’ve learnt this year to not be so hard myself, the pressure of entering the adult world has got to me a little bit I do have to confess, yet I remind myself that I am only 21 and I have plenty of time to achieve my goals and dreams. I’ve wanted to do this post because I feel like I do need a bit of guidance and a little reminder of what I need to succeed in doing to be the happiest person I can be for myself but also others.

So here is my list:

Buy less

Maintain a healthy diet

Less hours on Netflix, more hours writing

Be more inspired and organised

Read more

Have more confidence

Worry less

What’s your New Years Resolution this year? Let me know in the comments guys and Happy New Year!

FASHION: TOP 5: BACK TO SCHOOL MUST HAVES

Fashion

Hopefully this top 5 fashion ‘must haves’ will help you prep for another fresh start either that be a new city, a new year or a new school, getting back on the education wagon is incredibly important and what’s better than a new wardrobe to start with? Turn heads and make those first impressions right.

I’ve been absolutely loving Topshop’s collection recently and it seems to be getting more fabulous each week, the sixties and seventies fashion ‘inspo’ are my favs and nothing screams smart to me more than a pair of cigarette trousers with brogues or even a stripy funnel neck with a pair of tights and dungarees.

So here’s what my top 5 picks are for that first term:

// Topshop

Inverness Checked Wool Pinafore Dress //

// £185

‘As if’… Embed a ‘Clueless’ classic Cher look. Tartan will always be an autumnal look and with a square clean, yet sharp silhouette and a hidden zip at the back, you are well on your way.

//Topshop

Suede Western Jacket //

// £135

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.55.59

The 70’s has made a comeback I couldn’t help but squeeze a bit of suede into my top picks. A classic front style with zipped trims to the sleeves and patch pockets, this would team up perfectly with a cosy black turtle neck and black skinnies.

// Topshop

Daisy Print Cigarette Trousers //

// £39

Think practical yet chic, these daisy print cigarette trousers are a gem to create that smart look, cut with a flattering tapered leg and an ankle grazer in length, you can’t go wrong. Oh and they’ve got side pockets, what more could a girl want.

// Topshop

PETITE Bright Floral Tunic //

// £32

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.53.58

Okay, this is my favourite from the list. Who said floral is dead in Autumn? This retro print will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

// Topshop

Striped Funnel Neck Top //

// £18

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.56.28

If you want to create a slimming look nothing is better than stripes paired up with black dungarees. This soft knit jersey style is ultra fitted to fabricate the most perfect silhouette.

What have you been loving this month and what will you be wearing for ‘back to school’ wear? Let me know in the comments.
