White Vans | Sk8 Hi

30 January 2015


It was love at first sight when I first opened up these bad boys on Christmas morning.
The Man had showered me with so many gifts for Christmas and these White Sk8 Hi Vans were one of many.

I've secretly been crushing on these since seeing them all over Tumblr and Instagram in October - slying checking them out on Asos praying that they would go on sale. I originally wanted to get a pair for the Mr for Christmas which is why I was honestly looking at them on Asos but I kept battling with myself on whether to get them.

These will be one of my LFW trainers.
I've decided this season I'm not stressing out with wearing heels and having to carry flats in a bag as it's too much to think about. I'm going to be luging my DSLR, note pad, phone etc I really don't want to add flats to that list.
So the aim is to wear trainers/flats. 

I'll do a separate post to show you my LFW essentials so look out!

Weekly Feelings #2

28 January 2015


You ever wake up from a night in of drinking and realise you drank a hella lot?!
Yep that was me on Saturday night.
What was supposed to be a chilled night in with a bottle of Rum that my friend Elisha got me from her travels to Barbados turned into - dancing around the front-room in our PJs to Katy Perry's 'California' a few dozen vodka red bulls later.

The mix of Rum and Vodka with a dash of Procesco here and there did not mix well on Sunday morning when I woke hanging like a fig.
That was a lesson learnt. 
Never.Mix.Your.Drinks.

Gym Life
I've been going to gym regularly and last week I even managed to go for 5 days! Even rocked up on a Saturday (very proud of myself). 
Although I'm getting slightly annoyed as I don't feel like I'm seeing a difference, especially as I'm now entering my 4th week. 
The Man has toned up like a beast and I'm here looking like a pop belly pig.
(no sympathy comments please)

Missing the Kids
I haven't seen my beautiful God Children in ages. 
I'm a bad God Mother and I admit it. I miss them so much. 
I've been so busy lately that I've noticed more and more that I'm neglecting the treasures in my life and need to make more time for them.
The plan is to have them this Saturday and head up to Woburn Safari Park with Cion. 
Yay... Lion's and Tigers!

Work
I've been getting more and more responsibility at work recently. Something which I craved when freelancing at Sky - although I'm starting to feel the strain. I find myself forgetting the little things and if I haven't written down actions in my notepad it will slip my mind! Prioritising used to be my best asset now I feel like I'm loosing control slightly.
Recommendations on how to maintain a healthy workflow?

The Blog
I want to take the blog more seriously.
Although it's always been a look into my personal style I want to incorporate more than just Fashion. I'm thinking of showing you guys a little more into the life of Michelle rather than Virgos and Kisses. If you have any comments/recommendations on what you would love to see from me let me know!

The Tutu Dress

24 January 2015


There is definitely something about a Tutu dress that makes every girl feel that 80s feeling.
I just wanna dance around the house to Whitney Houston's 'I wanna Dance with Somebody' with a pair of leg warmers and a bright pink head band.

I snapped this beauty in the ASOS sale before Christmas for only £12. For the price I imagined the quality to be quite cheap but to my surprise the fabric isn't half bad and it fits perfectly... especially around the brassiere area (only those who suffer from big-boob-itis would understand).

I decided to give this girly dress a rockstar feeling by adding my trusty Topshop jacket and bright blue lipstick.
I've so in love with my Virgo Blue Lipstick from Nizz Cosmetics but due to the astounding pop of colour it's not an everyday wear.

Style yay or nay?

Weekly Feelings #1

21 January 2015


I'm thinking of making 'Weekly Feelings' a regular thing on VK as it allows me to 1. Ensure I have a weekly post running through the blog and 2. I get to give you amazing readers a run down of a. How I'm feeling and b. My entire week.
Yay for you guys!

Work
The last week and a half I've been without my training wheels. 
I call 'her' my training wheels because I recently got a new job working under the Head of Production for a Creative Branding Agency and she left last week to work for an amazing production company... leaving me all on my own!
Not quite all on my own but you get the drill.
I told myself that the first week would be a great test as I didn't have her to lean on when shit hit the fan and to be honest I only had to call her once - pats self on the shoulder.

Hair Update
I got my barnet done this weekend! yay!
Finally said goodbye to the plaits as I've been rocking them for a while now... It feels so good to have a fresh new hair style and more importantly some feel good weave.
I'm starting to realise that my natural hair is going to be a lot of work and I now understand why I permed it in the first place! I have a whole lotta hair and it's thick as hell.
Natural hair bloggers if you have anything you can recommend for maintaining my thick fuzzy hair then please let me know!

LFW AW15
I've done all my requesting for the London Fashion Week shows this AW15! Feeling pretty accomplished as I normally request for tickets 2 weeks before hand. I was if'ing and but'ing about going this year as I've been battling with the blog for a while and more importantly battling with the fashion side of the blog.
Then I reminded myself that I shouldn't let a little 'bloggers block' get in the way of checking out LFW and networking!
Are any of you beauties thinking of checking out LFW this season?

Life Right Now

11 January 2015

This is probably going to be one of most uninteresting posts I have to date... why? Because I've been feeling so unmotivated lately.
My mojo has just gone poof! Goodbye!

Life has been super duper busy, so much that I don't know my front to my back.
The stress levels are beyond 100% and all I want to do is take a long bath and go to bed.

I'm not sure if the lack of motivation is to do with the that fact I'm so consumed with work I haven't really had the chance to get out and socialise.
I definitely need a little kick start.
HELP!

Outfit
The winter days are definitely making me want to stick to the darker colours and black is making an indefinite appearance in my wardrobe.
I told myself that I wouldn't be 'sale' shopping but the ASOS sale had been too good to pass up!

I got this crochet style midi dress for only £21 and the over the shoulder bag for only £9! Such a bargain.
I'm a very proud shopper for finding these beauties!
I initially wanted to go for darker lippy to finish this outfit but I felt it was overkill and slightly stepping into gothic territory.

New Year Resolutions

4 January 2015

I've always wondered why people make resolutions at the beginning of the year and NEVER stick to them.
Myself included.
I usually have the same resolutions every New Year

Stop smoking
Loose weight
Save

This year I have decided to pack in the bull crap and just go with the flow. 
I definitely want to be more healthier and cut out the burgers and fries. 
And who doesn't want to stop smoking? Filthy habit!
And it's always nice to have extra pennies for a rainy day...

But when I put restraints on my life it makes the resolution a chore and chore's are just plain boring.

What I will commit to is being a better person and to enjoy life. 
I want to make the most of my family and friendships and learn and gain as much life/work experience as possible.

One thing I would like to work on is my ASOS addiction. I am without a doubt an addict.

****

I thought I would share with you what I wore for NYE.
I went out to dinner to Benihanna with my partners friends. I had a great time with great company and amazing food!

Right Now
Watching Breaking Bad. I can't believe I am only just getting to it! I have managed to get through Season 1-4 throughout the Christmas Holidays and I LOVE IT!

This Week
The festive period have definitely put a toll on me. I am so drained that I have decided to sleep all the way until next Monday.

Looking Forward To
2015 baby!
