My journey over the last two years of self discovery has birthed inside of me a new love for fashion and make up.
I’ve experimented and pushed myself out of my comfort zone. Tried colours and patterns that I would have never worn before.
I’ve had some great successes and some terrible failures but all have been a valuable part of growing.
So what have I learned?
Black is still my favourite colour but a little accent of colour can bring to life an outfit.
Pastels will cause everyone you meet to ask you if you are ill as you look a little off colour.
Wearing strong lipstick is great but make sure you drink from one side of a glass otherwise said lipstick ends up all over your forehead. Not good when schmoozing and trying to impress.
I can wear a dress and the sky won’t fall in.
Shape wear knickers sometimes roll down and cause quite a panic in the middle of an awards evening, no one noticed of course right. 😳
I love wearing hats and yes some do suit me.
Fake eyelashes are awesome but not stuck to your cheekbones.
I can wear heels now and again but I’m still on the search for the perfect black boots.
Heels look good but do not wear them for the first time at an event which requires you to stand for over four hours.
To be fair it’s been such an amazing time really discovering who I am and what I like .
Still I think the greatest lesson I have learned is that there are no rules.
You wear what you want, be it a dress, a crop top ( yes Oprah that’s aimed at you) or ripped jeans.
Never let anyone or society dictate your style.
For years I’ve listened to others and not myself, not anymore.
I’ve learned to love my body and in doing so I’m learning to live freely.
I’m loving fashion and make-up and the only limitation I have is my bank balance.
