As I mentioned in my previous blog... I never considered myself fat, let alone obese. Sure I could do with losing a bit around the middle, but the realisation of my actual size wasn’t until I saw photos of myself. This knocked me sideways, and was made worse shortly after, when I went clothes shopping and couldn’t find anything that fit me.
It’s safe to say that my body confidence at that time was at an all time low. Overtime as I lost a bit of weight here and there, it improved. Then in 2016, when I decided to post more photos of myself on social media, it took another hit, because once again, I was seeing the reality of how I looked, rather than my own mental image. They say ignorance is bliss... when it came to my weight, this was definitely true!
Many people blame social media for all the body confidence and mental health problems in today’s world. I might be in a minority, but I disagree, at least for me anyway. Seeing photos of other people never made me jealous. It was seeing photos of myself that affected me, and it forced me to take action!Read More
There’s no doubt that James Bond is the quintessential gold standard for men. Men want to be him and women want to be with him. Like most fictional characters, being James Bond is obviously an unattainable goal, but I’ve decided that there’s definitely a few of his traits that I would certainly like to adopt into my own personal character this year.
Whether it’s the current gritty era with Daniel Craig, or any of the previous iterations of the character, James Bond has always maintained a consistent identity. You know who he is, and what he’s about, as well as what he’s capable of.Read More
I’m very impulsive when it comes to shopping. It’s why I suck at buying things online. I much prefer to wander around aimlessly and then grab something that catches my eye!
I went out last Saturday because I wanted some black leather gloves (turns out, not as easy to get as you might think!). Anyway, I’ve been a bit of a New Look convert of late. My favourite ripped black jeans are from New Look and I wear them all the time! Whilst making a beeline for the accessories rack for some gloves, I caught this Peacoat out of the corner of my eye.Read More
Seems that my standard uniform is pretty monochrome these days. I like it though. Neutral tones are easier to mix and match and create varied looks. That doesn’t mean I don’t like to have a little accented colour from time to time though.
I picked this overcoat up last year on impulse and it’s one of the few things that still fits! (Everything else is too big for me these days! 🙊). I got the blazer in the Zara sale earlier in the summer. I popped in on my way out to a party because I didn’t have anything else that fitted. Literally got changed in the changing room and threw the old tshirt I had on in the bin! I’ve never had anything double breasted before, but I’m really into it!Read More
