The classics: Red lips and Breton stripes

Top Primark / Trousers H&M / Boots Primark / Glasses Specsavers
So I thought to get this fresh start, well started, I'd do an outfit post. I found this Breton-esque top in Primark for an absolute bargain at£3.50 or something. I'd been desperate for top like this for ages so I couldn't leave it. It's so easy to wear and today I that thought I'd style it up with these beige jodhpurs from H&M for a bit of a classic look. For a pop of colour I put on my favourite red lippie (Kate Moss for Rimmel Lasting Finish in shade 01). As for the boots they were one of my favourites finds from Primark but they are a little too big, so I don't wear them if I'm going to be on my feet a lot.

I'm still making some tweaks to my blog design but HTML codes are beating me so my progress is slow. If anyone has any tips for adding a horizontal navigation bar under the header I would be super grateful!

A fresh start

Well Blogland it has been a while since we last spoke. I have been MIA over the last month as I've been finishing my final ever university submission, the dreaded dissertation! The last week since then has been a blur of celebrations, a city break (more on that later) and family trips. However now it is time to start thinking about the future. I will admit that I have no idea what that holds at the moment and I'm currently trying to decide exactly where I'm going to live and start job hunting. 

One thing I am sure of is that I am more than ready for a fresh start. There's a lot of change on its way and whilst I will admit that it's all a bit scary I am also very excited. University is over and after a lifetime of always knowing what was next and what I had to do, the future is suddenly looking a lot more vague. I hear people say a lot that after graduation life is a downer, but the way I see it is that now we can choose anything. Okay so maybe I can't choose to be an Olympic ice dancer, but I can choose a new and exciting city to live in and new challenges and new people. I personally think that's all pretty darn cool. As a teenager I feared my twenties, but now I realise that this is when I can really go start going out there and exploring the world and pushing myself.

So you may be wondering where this blog all comes into things and you also may have noticed that I have deleted all of my old blog posts. I decided that it was also time for a fresh start with this little blog of mine. I haven't felt inspired for the past few months and I thought I should try shaking things up a bit. I've given the layout a re-shuffle and I may make a few more changes over the next few weeks until I'm really happy with it. I have some ideas for new posts and I think that now I've finished university I want to put more time into this blog, because I really do enjoy working on it.

So here's to fresh starts, new beginnings and all the opportunities just waiting to be taken. I for one cannot wait to graduate and see what life has in store (even if I have no idea just what it will be yet!)
