The all year wardrobe piece

In the past two years or so, I think I have given away at least a shops worth of clothes and as much as that sickens me, nothing is better than having my seasonal purge of my wardrobe. But this little jumpsuit is something I have yet to let go of even if I have had to get my mum to stich it up a little.

Although jumpsuits are the worst when you need to pee, they are a great I don’t know what to wear piece. With so many different style options if find ones with a wider cropped leg and more cinching at the waist works best for me. I got mine for NewLook and even bought a similar backup style just in case!

I took this piece with me to china as the perfect day to night or work to night transitional piece to go with heels, trainers and even flats. I completed this look with and H&M check shirt for a little more coverage and my Forever21 heels. Add a top underneath for more warmth in the autumnal months or keep it plain with jewellery for more formal occasions. Black means you can have more fun with your pairing pieces.

Own any jumpsuits? How do you style them?

There's something on your arm

The fact that I am writing a post of this description makes my stomach drop a little but yes, I got a tattoo. And no, I don’t regret it ... yet haha

In my defence, I thought I was going in for a lovely consultation but turns out I was getting it done right then and there. I was shitting myself and I was very close to walking out on multiple occasions. but hey, I did it, I am proud I did it, I love then end result. Thinking about it now, I would for sure do it again.

It might seem cliché at first but I promise I know what it means and says and all the other possible things it could be. I had it checked multiple times and in fact, these characters were given to me. When I started my Chinese lessons out here, this was the name that I was given and I know this is a trip I will treasure forever so I wanted to get it. And I wasn’t hesitant about it in the slightest.


Now, I can’t lie, this really bloody hurt. I would give it a solid 8/10 on the pain scale (1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest). My friends said that it looked like it really hurt me but it really shouldn’t have but, I powered through.


As you can see I got it in a small to medium size on the outside of my arm but my friend got hers down the lower portion of her spine at about a similar size. My reasoning for it being here is because you would only know it was there if I had my arms a certain way or you noticed it out of the corner of your eye. Nothing too big or distasteful personally.

Now since writing this, I have had it recoloured and that really f*cking hurt (pardon my French) but that still hasn’t stopped me from planning the other ones I’ve wanted to get for years now and just getting there here whilst I have someone within close proximity that I can trust, is cheap, does a really good job and has the cutest cat – because that makes everything better.

There you have it, the first of many tattoos most likely haha!
