8 Fashion Trends I absolutely adore - The Fashion Roadmap


Wondering what your favourite style icons are wearing this month? What fashion items would actually suffice when you're trying to boost your fashion image or just, look trendy? Watch out for the trends. Trends are our new fashion roadmaps. They tell us what to wear and what to pair but they also allow us to explore fashion. To, colour outside of your Vogue colouring book. 

I'm always very aware of my outfits, yes I'm a fashion-a-holic and I love keeping up with the latest trends. They help me keep up to date with style and give me reasons to tell my mom as to why I need to freshen up my wardrobe so often. So let's face it, we've had a fabulous month of fashion and it's definitely worthy of a "look back at" and so when I was asked to create a Fashion Trends post I was delighted. So here you have it, think of them as your new fashion road map, my 8 favourite Fashion Trends. 


Milano Sunnies 

Up and coming and extremely hard to pull off, these Milano Sunnies are my new faves! Seriously, I never leave the house without them.



Short Hair 

If you're keeping up with my Instagram or Facebook Pages then you'll know I snipped basically all my hair off in May and I am LOVING it. Girls (and maybe guys LOL) there is nothing better than having short hair. It's easy to style,wash, dry and it looks great even if you don't do anything with it. Easy yet totally trendy ;) 


Matching Cases 

I love this trend so much! I recently got a matching laptop & phone case set from Coconut Lane and let me tell you, it looks fabulous when you pull them both out at a local coffee shop. You'll definitely be turning heads ;) 




Pastels 

I have always loved pastels but now more than ever. Whites, pinks, baby blues, yellows, mints, you cannot and will not ever clash. These call for the easiest "throw-it-together" outfit ever.  



The Classic White Tee 

Paired with a blazer, cardigan, blue jeans, leather jeans they're easy to dress up and down. P.S I learned a fab tip from Posh Beckham, roll up the sleeves when going jacket-less ;) 




The Polar Knit 

This trend has been all over my Instagram recently. Find an oversized polar knit that matches your skin tone or eye colour and pair it with blue, white or black jeans. To die for. 



White Sneakers 

It's no secret I've always disliked black sneakers and so it's no surprise that white sneakers are on this list. I never leave for a trip without either my Converse or my nike Airforce 1's. It is so easy to pair these babies to anything you feel like wearing. 




The Checker Blazer 

This newest trend immediately caught my eye. It's perfect for dressing things up or down and goes with just about everything. Just be careful not to clash patterns. 



And there we go! I hope you loved these 8 Fashion Trends as much as I did and you keep them by your side because I know I'm not a Fashion Psychic but I definitely don't see these going out of style anytime soon ;)

7 Uplifting Benefits of Morning Runs


As my feet hit the ground one after the other I just kept thinking about the huge breakfast I would have afterwards. My legs and feet were in agony as we took control of our last lap and my nose was blocked. It was like running with a clothes peg holding your nose shut and having to sniff every second to keep it up. I was uncomfortable and felt my mind starting to win against my body but I kept going until I couldn’t anymore. I fought it. I kept thinking about all the good things that were happening to my body and soul as I kept running and that, along with the thought of my huge breakfast, is what got me all the way back to the hotel door. 

I know there are others like me who struggle with early morning runs. The usual cold air and early rise is a friend to no one but sometimes you just have to push through. After only a few early morning runs I could already feel the difference. I promise, after reading these fabulous benefits of morning runs, you’ll be ready to run each and every morning with no hesitations at all. 


The major stress relief & improvement of your mood afterwards 

Running is an escape from reality. It helps you take your mind off of your hectic daily schedule and by doing your cardio in the morning, you’ve woke up and immediately achieved a goal. This will definitely set you in a good mood for the rest of the day. 


No need for exercise excuses later in the day 

Because you’ve already exercised in morning, you’ll not have to make up an excuse at 5 P.M that night when you really don’t feel like heading out to the gym. The best thing about a morning run is getting your daily exercise done and dusted before your actual day even starts. 


Weight Loss

Running is a great way to burn belly fat. Although strength training should also be included in your fitness program, it is easier to get up and finish your cardio right away and then still have time to complete your strength training later. 


Lack of tiredness during the day 

This is one prominent benefit I have noticed after only one week of morning runs. The late afternoon tiredness that normally sets in, doesn’t seem to be setting in no more. Morning runs are a great way to keep your energy flowing for the entire day. 


Having your down time 

I know I have said it before but this is what makes running so magical. It is an escape from reality. Instead of having your downtime in front of a tv, run. Running clears your head and allows you to make sense of everything going on without overthinking. It honestly is, the best form of downtime. 


The Runner’s Buzz & The self esteem boost 

After asking what my followers loved most about morning runs, a lot of them said “the runners buzz” they got afterwards made them feel, slim, trim and unstoppable. I don’t know about you but a free self esteem boost and this type of attitude really feels like the best way to start your day. 


Sleeping better at night

Morning running not only gives you enough energy to make your entire day sail smoothly ahead but it also helps you to sleep better at night. It’s probably because by the time you’re ready to hit the sheets, that energy boost has definitely faded away. 



Thinking of these when you wake up for your morning run will definitely help you get out of bed instead of turning over again. If you’re in need of a bit of motivation, print them out and stick them on your mirror. Really knowing what you’re doing to your body helps you to understand your need to complete the task, that means it’s no longer an annoying thing you really hate doing. I hope these help you to learn to love your morning runs, I know they sure did help me.

How to Soak Up Every Second of Your Holiday




I honestly thought the day would never come. The day where we get to throw down our books, turn up the Mamma Mia 2 sound track and forget what we're "supposed" to be doing for a whole month. No school, no teachers, no assignments, nothing due. It seems like the time of your life right? 

You see, if you're like me and are two weeks in to your holiday and haven't done anything except eat, sleep, blog and repeat, you might get a little bored. And honestly, boredom tends to speed up your holiday and let the "fun factor", go down drastically. That's exactly why I've decided to help you not waste any time this holiday but rather to soak up every second. 

Today, we're going to be exploring 5 things to do instead of sleeping this fabulous break and how to soak up every second of the holiday. 


How to Soak up Every Second: 

Be present. This is my new holiday mantra. I really believe that you should have a holiday plan. Although holidays mean time to rest and laze around, they're also time to reach goals and do things you won't have time to do when you go back to school. However, I do know how tempting that 21st episode of Orange is the New Black is and so, make a list of everything you want to achieve this holiday and every day try and become one step closer to finishing that to do list. This also gives you purpose, which prevents you from lazing around all day, however tempting it may be. Also, make sure you aren't wasting time on things that don't really need your attention. Things like social media, this is a quick and easy way to fall into an achieve-nothing-holiday-trance. 


And next...5 Fabulous things to do this Holiday: 


1. Find a new hobby 

This is a great way to keep busy during the holidays! Remember that time you wanted to go vegan? Okay, not quite a hobby but the holidays are the perfect time to start! It's also a great time to start gyming, yoga, meditating, reading or baking. You never now, you might just find your next great talent ;) P.S click here to check out the benefits of Yoga!



2. Exercising 

The holidays are a fabulous time to start exercising! It's not just about working off those 3 cupcakes you had because you were bored ;) but it's also a fantastic way to head back to school looking, and feeling, great.



3. Meet up with friends 

Meet up with your friends that you haven't seen in ages! You should even try that cute coffee shop you saw around the corner. But, no late notice excuses when your Netflix season gets, just too good. Aim to leave the house more than once this holiday ;)


4. Throw a party 

I did this a while back and I loved it. Get a group of friends over, one who has a knack for creating bomb playlists included obviously, ask them to each bring a snack and turn up the jams. Get your adrenaline and your neighbours temper heated this holiday, I promise it will be loads of fun!


5. Rest 

The most important part of this holiday is definitely to rest. Going back to school will definitely be busy and you need to make sure you're ready. So you definitely have to add some down time to your holiday plan. 

Chloe's holiday update: 

This holiday I'm jetting off to the wee country of Scotland. Fun Fact, there are 5.2 million people who live in Scotland and my mom used to be one of them! So for this month long break we're going to be spending time in Glasgow & St Andrews. If you want to follow along on my trip, make sure to follow my Insta Stories! 

I hope this guide to soaking up every second of your holiday helps you maximise every free-from-school second! Have a fabulous Winter Break angels!
