Outfit Post – Wearing Hoodlum Lamorna Faux Fur Hood

I wrote about this Hoodlum Lamorna Faux Fur Hood last week and how it would make a great gift this Christmas. Well, I finally got the opportunity to wear mine the other day and I am so glad I did. The hood is so pretty. It is great for the very cold winter days and nights ahead. The design is amazing and it is great quality. This Lamorna Faux Fur Hood by Hoodlum Clothing is from the limited Winter Lux Collection. It is designed to combat colder weather. The lovely handmade cosy hood is lined with luxury faux fur that locks in warmth, which makes it the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe.

Here is a brief description of the luxury faux fur hood from Hoodlum Clothing Brand

Superior Grey Husky Faux Fur with Natural Herringbone Harris Tweed

This herringbone has a subtle combination of nature tones that evoke the wilds of the Cornish countryside. The Grey Husky faux fur perfectly colour matches the earth colours of the tweed with its multi-tonal greys and black flecks. This is would look great on a man as well as a women.

A handcrafted hardwood button fastens the hood.

Will sit as a shawl when worn down.

Did you know?

The natural Herringbone Harris Tweed on this hood is a limited edition. Made by an independent weaver on the Isle of Harris they only create small runs of each design.

Outfit Post – Fashion in Portugal

Happy Thursday Fashionistas! I took these outfit photos while holidaying in Portugal some weeks ago. It is now painfully cold in Cheshire, and I am seriously missing the warm weather we had in Portugal. I know the weather will be dark, cold and gloomy for the next few months. I know this because it happens every year but I am not ready for the extreme cold weather yet. Maybe because this is the first time I am having to do school run in the mornings. When the kids were in pre-school, they had the afternoon sessions which was great for us all as we didn’t have to leave the house in the mornings to go to school. But all that has changed now and I am not coping well 😊

So since I am finding this British weather very depressing, I am keeping myself having by staying warm and keeping the memories of our last holiday alive. In this outfit post, I am wearing a fringe dress, which is a new wardrobe addition. I got it specifically for our Portugal trip and I am glad I did. It was dead comfy and easy to style. Plus the fringe design gave the look an extra wow factor.

I needed a few casual summers pieces for the trip, so I did a cheeky online shopping days before we left and I was glad I got the pieces I got on sale. They were all less than half price!

I love this fringe dress a lot, and I am already looking forward to wearing it again once the weather changes.

How is the weather where you are? Are you missing the warm weather already? What do you think of this fringe dress?

Why Holidays are Important

With our busy our lives are, holidays have become necessities. It is great to get out of the regular routine and do something elsewhere for a change. Holidays are important. They help us relax and unwind. Holidays also help us reconnect with loved ones. I enjoy going on vacations. If I could afford it, I would go somewhere special every month.

I have decided to do as much travel as I can this year and going forward. There are many cities/countries I am yet to visit to fully explore, and I really can’t wait to get on with it. I would love to see the world and appreciate all it has to offer.

 

Why Holidays are Important

 

I get to relax

Staying in hotels whenever I am on holiday is important to me. Even when I have a free place to stay with family/friends, I rather stay in a hotel. We work very hard on a good day, so when on holidays, we like to put my feet up and do nothing.

I don’t want to do anything while on holidays so the idea of room service, breakfast in bed, someone cleaning up after me (for a change) is right up my street. I would rather spend the money and unwind properly.

 

See the world

Going holiday means I get the opportunity to explore a different city. I want to see the world, and so far, I have seen quite a bit of it. I have visited Dubai, Oman, New York, Maryland, Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Milan, Düsseldorf, Miami, Ireland and many more.

There are still a couple of countries on my travel list I need to see. I am slowly ticking them off one by one. The world is beauty and it would be a shame not to explore its beauty. I love every city I have seen for different reasons. Some are loved for their urban architecture, others for their party spirit, amazing food and great shops.

Create memories

I enjoy holidays because I get to create memories with my family. I take a lot of photos and make videos to keep these memories fresh in mind. Souvenirs are always bought as well. I never leave a city without a souvenir. It is my own way of taking something back home with me to remember the holiday.

 

Improve your health

Holidays help reduce our stress levels, which will in turn improve our health. Health is wealth, so taking time off to holiday is very important. Many of us are extremely busy juggling childcare, work, running a business and dealing with life in general. It can get so busy that all the hustle and bustle can begin to take a toll on your health. We need to remember to take things easy for the sake of our health.

Research has now shown that those who take less than one holiday every two years are more likely to suffer from depression and stress/burnout. It has also shown that those who fail to take annual holidays have a 21% higher risk of death from all causes and were 32 percent more likely to die of a heart attack.

I am not surprised by this results. I find that I laugh more while on holiday. Maybe it is the change of environment that amuses me or just a change of routine that makes me happy. Whatever it is, I like it. It keeps me in a good mood, even these Saturday quotes can’t put me in such a happy mood.

If all these does not make you book a holiday, I don’t know what will. I know many of us may struggle with going abroad on holiday, but you can holiday in your country or even in your city. There is a lot to see regardless of where you are based. You just need to find it.

It is also a good idea to schedule in some vacation time if you get the chance to go on a work trip or wedding abroad. Make the most of every new place you visit. Even if it means having an extra day or 2 set aside to be a tourist in the area, that will do you a whole lot of good. Whenever I go away for a wedding abroad, I make time to explore the city. I won’t want the only memory of my trip to be that of princess brides. That won’t be smart at all.
