Over the past couples, I have noticed a pattern.
I have only been wearing black, white and navy blue clothes. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Maybe I want to blend in with the doom and gloom of winter rather than bring a little sunshine to the season.
I am mourning the loss of sunshine and perpetual warmth hahaha.
Anyway, above are some of my favourite pieces for winter. Simple dresses, lots of knitwear with simple designs, A-line skirts, closed-toe heels, and, of course, a classic pair of black leather booties.
Here are some of my favourite stores for winter shopping Xx.

Today in my Journalism class we were asked to list our three main "specialities", or topics that we know a lot about and that we would be comfortable writing about throughout the semester. This was quite difficult for me because I have never considered myself to be exceptional at any one thing before. But once I really thought about it, I realized that I have learned a far bit about fashion and style trends both through this blog and through Polyvore. My other topics were food and health.
I had an epiphany. If these topics are really so important to me, why don't I talk about them, explore them, research them, and write about them here on my blog more often? (Right, I am a full-time student with a part-time job and a commited relationship :P)
The idea that I have is that once a week - sort of as a break from everything -I will publish a post for health, a post for food, and a post for fashion (fingers cross that it will be an actual outfit post).
It is time to make my interests and passions of a higher priority in my life!

Happy 2015 everyone!
A whole year has come and gone, and I have learned so much from 2014. So here are some of my resolutions to better myself in 2015!
1. Stop procrastinating! as noted by the current date, I obviously struggle with procrastination. Whether it be school work, chores, or blogging, I am constantly putting off the things that I need to get done. No more! This year I am going to make a 120% conscious effort to put a stop to this habit.
2. Put more effort into my blog. This blog has become quite important to me and has helped me realize justs how much I enjoy learning about fashion, style, and both current and past trends. And it's not fair to my readers to only get one post a month (if that!). So here's hoping!
3. Try harder at school. I am almost done my third year of university and this past semester was the first semester that I did not recieve a D in any of my classes. I am going to do my best to make that a good pattern for the remainder of my degree.
4. Budget my spending money better. I don't know if any of you know this but I am a very compulsive shopper, especially when it comes to clothes (and shoes!). And I'm not saying that I want to force myself to stop shopping so much. But rather, I would like to control my spending better and force myself to think "Do I really need this? Do I currently own anything like this? When would I wear/use this in my day-to-day life?"
What are some of your New Years resolutions? Let me know in the comments below Xx.
