Coffee and catch ups


Leopard print cardigan - H&M | Faux snake skin boots - Primark | Jeans - Zara | Faux leather jacket - Zara | t-shirt - Hallow Collective |

It's nice again to be able to blog a little, its been so crazy on the lead up to Christmas, a lot of areas of my life get neglected, barely any time to head to the gym, which I have to admit is kind of killing me a little, the brain is on finish commission mode and totally fueled by coffee but that part I do love.  Nothing makes me happier then throwing on some comfy clothes and heading out for a coffee with a mate, when you're a freelancer having some time away from your work space it does wonders for my stress levels. I am literally in awe of the love and amount of commissions people have trusted me with in the last month for gifts and presents for loved one 2017 is set to be the biggest of my career yet so I'm hoping the work carries on and the jobs I am entrusted to do are just as fab as 2016 has been. Just last night I finally closed my commission book for 2016 which took a lot of organising and I hate turning work down but when it's just little old me painting, packing and emailing you have to get to a point where you can't take on everything, so the coffee and an hour break was good for me.

A few weeks ago I finally got around to snapping up one of my now favorite  t-shirts "no soul to sell" from the Hallow collective,  perfect item to throw on quickly and it often makes me people laugh so it's perfect. My boots were also a purchase I had been waiting a while to get, I had seen a few other ladies on Instagram with faux snake skin boots and as soon as I had saw them in Primark I treated myself. They are a little out of my comfort zone but I love them. 

I am still lovingly surprised that my blog is up for the Uk Blog Awards How exciting is that it is under the Lifestyle category and I am up against some other fab bloggers, so I doubt I stand much of a chance but it's a fab end to the year.  If you fancy voting for my ramblings you can here.
