Yes, that is Boohoo HQ. I couldn’t resist snapping a quick picture like the ultimate fangirl when I went to the #fightcancerwithfashion event in the Northern Quarter of Manchester. I think I really fell in love with the Northern Quarter this week – I’ve never really explored further than Afflecks Palace and the Bbycks store (anyone else remember when that was a thing?!) so I’m excited to go back soon and really explore.

This week has been a really good, but really busy one for me, I literally feel like I haven’t stopped since Monday morning, and the fact that it’s Monday again tomorrow is freaking me out just a little bit. I also, feel super inspired this week, and not just with the blog. I’ve decided I really want to build up my photography portfolio again and with some shoots in mind already I absolutely can’t wait to get started.

So I guess from my brief synopsis of my activities above, this week has been a success! But now, down to the nitty gritty. Have I actually stuck to my aims this week, unlike last week’s shambolic attempt?

I can confirm wholeheartedly that I pretty much have! I only made the gym once which was a bit of a pain, but I’ve also spent minimal money and finally filmed a video on my camera. Not that it was wonderfully successful (gotta love technology eh?!) but I’m hoping with some clever editing and a few choice words aimed at my laptop I’ll be able to edit it into some semblance of acceptability.

Finally, I have had a bit of a meaningful think about my blog this week, and I’ve come to the conclusion that my content jumps around too much. It doesn’t follow one specific theme and I don’t like that – out of all the things I like blogging about and talking about the most, it’s definitely fashion and personal style so I’m going to be spending a lot more time on my style posts and the beauty and lifestyle might fade into the background a little. That’s not to say that they won’t be there at all, but from now on this blog will be more personal style focused. There will also be a slight design and URL change coming up soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

How has your weekend been?

      I agree! I'm always so torn between wanting to write pure fashion/personal style related posts, and then really opinionated current events style posts that I think I will be in a constant battle with myself, but oh well! So long as I enjoy it, that's all that matters xo
