Fashion – Mid Year Outfit Review 2018

I have posted quite a few outfits this year 2018. It has been a busy year fashion blogging wise, and I hope it continues this way. I have rocked winter, spring and summer looks this year. And here are some of my favourite looks of the year so far.

 

Cheers to the New Year

I started the year rocking this sparkly Quiz dress. The dress is one of my favourite pieces at the moment. It is a great party piece. I love how it sparkles and hugs my body like a glove. It is so easy to fall in love with this beautiful dress. I always get lots of compliments when I have it on.

If you need stylish party pieces with an OK price tag, you need to shop at Quiz. The brand has some of the most beautiful party dresses around.

 

 

Staying Warm this Winter

This is another look I really like. The sparkly cardigan by Apricot stole the show. The Russell & Bromley shoes look so good with the outfit. I guess it is easy to see why I like this outfit. Apricot is another fashion clothing brand I really like. I highly recommend them.

What do you think of the look?

 

 

A Slice of Lemon

This lemonade look is another favourite of mine. I love the pop of colour thanks to the NEXT cardigan. . The glittery scarf by M&S is one of my favourite. I also love my Kurt Geiger denim shoes. This is one look I can clearly see myself styling again and again. It is such a girly look I think.

 

A Skrit for Spring

This spring look is another fashion favourite of the year. Like I have said many times, I like wearing dresses and skirts in the spring/summer months. I find them very comfortable and stylish.

This River Island skirt is so great for the current season. I love the floral design and the crotchet top from BlackBetty is super stylish too! This outfit was put together so effortlessly. I love it.

 

 

Styling A Bodycon Dress

This is my most recent outfit post and it is no surprise that is makes the list. I love this New Look Bodycon Dress a lot. I am usually not a fan of bodycon dresses at all. But this stunning dress impressed me. The Michael Kors sandals suits the dress a lot, like many other sandals would do.

 

What do you think of these outfits? Which is your favourite and why?

How To Manage Time When Working From Home

Working from home can be very tricky if you suck at time management. Thanks to the social media, mobile phones, TVs and all the other distractions, which can make working from home a blessing or a curse, if you don’t know how to manage time. I have worked at home steady for over 3 years now. And I have learnt a few tricks on how to successfully work from home. It takes a lot of work to get it right but it is very possible to work from home, making good money.

How To Manage Time When Working From Home

 

Have the right equipments

Working with the right equipment would save you time and money in the long run. I bought my Apple MacBook Pro last year and it has completely changed my working life. I don’t have to deal with the many issues I dealt with while using my old HP laptop. The old laptop was forever going off by itself, and I was forever putting it back on. It made my working life miserable. So I was happy to get rid of it for a better laptop. If you can afford to go Mac, I promise you will never go back!

I also got an iPad Pro with the keyboard some months ago, which has been very handy for when I need to work outside the house, without my MacBook Pro. Having the keyboard with the iPad means I can type faster. It has completely changed my life. My good old iPhone is also another smart gadget I use for work. It was like a breath of fresh air when I replaced my old Blackberry with the iPhone.

Having the right gadgets have changed my working life for the better. It makes working from home easier and faster.

 

Ignore the distractions

Ignoring the distractions is easy for me, which is why working from home works for me. But I know it can be tricky for others. So switch off your phone if you have to, and work in a room without any sort of distraction, so you get your work done. My kids are in school for only a few hours, so I have to make the most of the free time I get during the day. I also work most nights, with the TV off, and I never feel like I am missing out. So this tip would only work if you let it.

 

Multi-task

I am good at getting a couple of things done at the same time and I think it helps me stay on top of my to-do lists. Multi-tasking only works if what I need to do does not need 100% of my attention. If it does, then I do it when I don’t have to multi-task.

 

Have a to-do list

Having a daily to-do list helps me stay on top of my day. I wake up in the morning, and I already know what needs doing. It saves the time I would have spent on trying to figure what needs to be done on that day.

 

Have daily goals

Having daily goals helps because you have set targets and you know what you are working towards. I like to have goals for morning, afternoon and sometimes evenings. That way, I can break up day, and work to clearly defined targets. It works great for me.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Noble Isle & Avon

There are some brands worth raving about, which is why I like to review products. So I can shout from the rooftops about them. Noble Isle is a brand worth raving about. I have used a few of their amazing products, and I am completely sold. All their products I have tried smell so good. Honestly, this brand has the best smelling skincare products out there. I will be sharing my thoughts on some of their shower gels in this product review post.

These shower gels are from the men’s collection. I have always loved male fragrances for a weird reason. The scents usually appeal to me. Which is why I am using these.
