Mid week Catch up!! :)

Hey lovelies how are you all this week?
Thought I would do a quick catch up with you guys and aim to stay updated as possible!
How was your bank holiday? Let me know!
Well so far this week, it has been interesting! I've already got work from uni to start on, which is super exciting!
I've been told to research about Japanese fashion designers and I've been in awe, honestly!
I never really paid attention to certain designers il be honest I generally just went on trends but this assignment as let me research and find out a lot more and it's safe to say I've really enjoyed it!
I really really really ( yes really) like Issey Miyake and his clothing. They are absolutely amazing!
Designed to perfection and completely out of the comfort  zone! What I love is the fact that he dares to be different and brings to the table quirk mixed with totally bizzare something I could definetly see Lady Gaga wearing! 

As you can see, he definetly pushes the barriers on rules about the limit, daring to be different! I also had to research about any international designers that were influenced by Japanese designers and I found Viktor and Rolf as one of them. I never knew they designed clothes ( embrassing) I just knew them for their perfume how wrong was I! I absolutely love their brand! The clothing designs are  brilliant! So out of the ordinary and you can tell who they are heavily influenced by, tell me what you think with this picture?

So that's what I've been up to and will be  stuck in until hand in date! I'm away this weekend but will try to blog and update.

I finally purchased a new vintage sewing machine after one year of not having one but I'm yet to try it out, no time I also got a new mannequin from a beautiful bridal shop in the jewellery quarter in birmingham. I will post some pictures in my next post when I finally use them!

What are you guys up to for the rest of the week? Anything exciting? Let me know 
Was thinking, once I start my charity job to start posting weekly maybe daily clothing Inspo, depending on time what do you think? 
Il stop bombarding you now but stay tuned

Sunday's Are Made To Blog In Bed :)

Hi Guys And Girls And Anyone Who Actually reads my blog entries!

How are you on this pleasant bank holiday Sunday/ Weekend?? 
Well mine started ok until I realised I had overspent so my dream of seeing Nottinghill carnival got cut short!!
In all honesty, im usually very careful with my spending like I literally obsess over every penny spent however with the excitement of everything, I got carried away .. Now here I am. Typing away on my blog waiting for the carnival and the bank holiday to blow over :(  I suppose things happen for a reason and one lesson in I learned from this, is BUDGET! I find though after a while 
I get bored and then want to splurge have you ever felt like that? It's a bad habit of mine which needs to be broken!
How do you manage your money? What tips can you share? Comment below and let me know (no pun intended) 

As many of you know it's back to school / uni / college / work how are you feeling?! If your starting college or uni what are you studying? Let me know!  I'm pretty excited to be honest 
I feel as though everything is on hold until the bank holiday is over then life can continue as it was.
 I made plans to work in a charity shop but im waiting on my induction date. I noticed that despite sending my cv to almost every fashion store going, 
Charity shops are humble to let you work there. Why is that? Why do you have to literally fight for a job in retail as if you are applying to work in the worlds biggest bank yet you can get into charity with a click of the finger?! I find it interesting and it reminds me of why I love charity work
It's always a humbling experience and it's fun for me it brings me back to reality that not every one can afford brand new and not everyone has got what we have.
Particularly for me going through my debt and other issues in the years , I've learned to work with what i have and adjust. Never in a million years would I of imagined to be wearing or working in a charity shop  but I absolutely love it! Its down to earth and you can still be in with the trends, depending on what bargain you rustle and grab!
The best thing is, You can still style a charity shop like a fashion shop and get plenty of satisfaction from it! I suppose the clothes are just already used but hey never bothered me ! 
What is your view on charity? Are you a brand new shopper or a recycled shopper and why? I like to hear what you think and why really? Everyone has different views and it's interesting to hear them.

Speak to you soon

Catch up!!

Hey lovelies!! It's been a while
First of all im back 2nd of all  im sorry!!
A lot has happened in the last couple of months but I'm pleased to be sharing it on my blog with guys again!! 

Well first of all the last time I was on here I was about to embark on my beauty journey well I'm happy to say that it's still happening but other things cropped up too! I went self employed and began working on a different business venture meaning I had to put my beauty on hold.
However im able to incorporate it again with the existing venture, and carry on achieving those goals!! Retraining was a hard decision for me but you know what they say dreams will be dreams until you achieve them and then they become real! It's been hard as I've been very indecisive for years and struggled to make a clear career path decision mainly down to life's tricks and battles thrown in the way but I'm positive it will all turn out fine! August and September will be busy months but I will post and update you so follow me and see :) 

In the last month I have moved homes
Started slimming world and started exercising more! Decided it was time to lose this "baby weight" as my baby is 4!! Next month! No excuses! *sobs*
It was hard because looking back on old pictures, I was always 9/10st never had to watch what I ate or worry about my weight and now my weight has cropped up to the heaviest ive ever been! With a little push I took my first step and joined slimming world and safe to say I'm enjoying it!, partly because theres not been a huge change in my diet as I thought they would be but just swap bad things for good things instead so it's healthier which has made it easier for me, I'm useless at calorie counting mainly because I usually forget to log it, so I just keep a daily diary and go from there. I'm starting my first training session this week which again is very nerving for me as I hate the gym Lol it's hard for me to stay focused and motivated so I decided to find help via a personal trainer recommended by a friend, I (Instagram: Anna_Simonite) she's an amazing inspiration to me and has made massive achievements to lose weight, her transformation pictures and gym trains are insane!! I literally leaped at the chance to have her train me! So make sure you check her out. Again I will post soon on how it all went, I'm a fan of pictures so if some of my posts are very brief be sure to follow me on Instagram (MissWhite__)-as I tend to post a lot and ramble on there! In regards to changing what I eat, im feeling a lot better within myself for it too! Feeling like I have a lot more energy and I'm not so lethargic all the time it's amazing how certain foods can make you feel sluggish!! I'm currently looking at yoga and Pilates classes not having much luck and may just join a gym to gain access (was trying to save money) lol have you got any recommendations? If so comment or drop me a line

I will post some more inspo posts about my progress as I don't want to get ahead of myself but so far I've made smoothies and tried new foods apart from junk food!

Exciting stuff! What are your thoughts of your on a weightloss journey and what do you prefer? Talk to me it's good to hear feedback from others doing the same and it's very inspiring !
