Excuse the absence of any posts recently, my life has been pretty hectic, which has partially contributed to the making of this new post! There are many things in life that we say we want to so, but often they can drift into the atmosphere or distance dreams, because perhaps we see them as unrealistic or just not for us. But, surely it’s time to realise that most goals or opportunities are for us, if we just put our minds to it. I am in a position to see this from both sides… There are many things that I am actively aiming for in the near future but haven’t yet completely figured out how to get there yet, and in other news I have just booked an interailing ticket around Europe for the middle of June (exciting). Whether our wants extend to career goals, trying new activities, or in actuality any kind of adventure that we want to achieve, it’s time to put these desires into action. Bucket lists can be in the form of ‘things to do before I die’ or more specifically ‘places to go before I die’ etc., but whatever kind of bucket list you choose, they are an excellent way to get your dreams down on paper, distinguish the most important things in your life and become one step closer into actively planning on ways to achieve them. So, what are you waiting for, take a moment out of busy everyday life and make those dreams (whether short term or long term)become closer to a reality.

So ever since Chanel posted this video at the beginning of March it has stuck in my mind! Perhaps the Spring-Summer collections would have been more appropriate for a post, considering the sun has just started to shine over here, but the other collections really do not do as much for me as this one does! Even though Winter seems a long time away, at least if the summer doesn’t last that long this year (as it never seems to in England) we have something to look forward to! I am particularly loving the tweed teamed with dramatic over-the-knee socks, boots and chunky knitwear, to toughen up more traditional look of tweed! I am also a massive fan of the effectiveness that the music featured in this video has on the collection! Oh, and how can I forget the outstanding set! Flawless show, enjoy…
Happy Easter weekend everybody! Most of you will finish work today for a lovely Easter Bank Holiday weekend, and I hope that you make the most of every minute! I love Easter, it’s for most of us, a chance to spend a long weekend with family and friends and east lots of chocolate (what’s not to love). Even though I may have to work on the Sunday and Monday, I will make sure that I fit in a lot of fun around it! It’s my birthday tomorrow, on Good Friday, and I plan to celebrate with lots of people then (I may even have lots of early chocolate to celebrate)! Anyway, enough about my plans, above is my Easter Lust List for this year… I’ve included the most appealing and luxurious egg that I could find, and what could be better that one with champagne truffles, yum! I also couldn’t resist these cute personalised egg cups, perfect for and Easter gift, but also perfect for the rest of the year too. The ceramic egg by Emma Bridgewater is probably one of my favourite out of the list. The beautiful design drew me too it (among many other beautiful designs of Emma’s), and it could be used for almost anything all year through! The personalised bunny rabbit is the perfect gift for all ages, it would be perfect for younger children, but I also love it myself! And finally, this rabbit sweater I found can be worn over the Easter weekend and the rest of spring.
What’s on your Easter Lust List this year?… I would love to read your comments below or even read your own post dedicated to your Easter Lust List!

Later this week it’s going to be my birthday (my first birthday as a blogger), and as I’m going to venturing out of my teens into my twenties, I have been doing my best to avoid the reality of getting older! I know that 20 is still very young, but I’m one of those people that was upset at the thought of being 19 and wanted to stay 18 forever. It is quite exciting, entering my 20′s and thinking of all the exciting things that I will get up to in the next ten years, but at the same I am not ready for all of the adult responsibilities to come with it. I want to stay young and carefree as long as possible, once I enter my 20′s I can’t use the excuse that I’m still a teenager any more So, after going through all of this in my head, I thought I would create this ‘forever young’ fashion board to share with you and remind us all that age is just a number, and we can stay as young as we wish!
Happy birthday to anybody else that is also turning a year older this week, and just remember to not let an age restrict you in whatever you wish to do!
I’d also love to hear your tips (as always) for staying young at heart!

I’ve always loved trying new fruits and in particular pomegranate for its taste, and it’s vibrant colour is an added bonus! But, also there are also tonnes of health benefits and various ways in which pomegranate can be used in recipes too. There are many easy ways to get some of the goodness from this fruit into your diet, plus some added flavour in salads or desserts. So, if you fancy trying something something new this week, maybe pick up a pomegranate to enjoy!
What are your favourite fruits, I’d love some more recommendations!

The other day I was applying for internship after internship, when something caught my attention. On one application, it said that in order to monitor equal opportunities for all positions, that I must enter my ethnicity into my application. But surely this process in itself differentiates candidates according to their ethnicity? If everybody really had equal opportunities, then surely ethnicity shouldn’t be an issue, and shouldn’t be necessary in an application with claims to ‘equal opportunities’. Interviews and positions alike should be allocated according to experience and skill for the job without ethnicity even coming into the picture, right? Maybe I’m missing something here, but it seems as though this process contradicts completely what it sets out to do in the first place.
As always, I would love to know your thoughts on the matter…
