There are so many layers to blogging that people don’t see, both the good and the not-so-glamorous, like the days of planning that precedes a brief, ten-minute photoshoot but there are also other aspects of it that have seriously enriched my life in the best imaginable ways possible.
Passion is infectious and I often find the creative crowd to be the most invested in their work. I feel no shame in admitting that at times I leech off like-minded people’s enthusiasm to fuel my own drive just because they remind me of the purpose in what I do and that there’s rightfully a reason why I enjoy doing it.
Even though blogging has taken me to some wonderful places, Manchester will always be home to the blog. The blogging community is small in this part of the world but very tight-knit and I do realise how fortunate I am to have formed some genuine friendships with my fellow bloggers over the last few months… The perfect icing on the cake!!

So for this outfit, I took inspiration from cakes, treats and all things sweet, especially in the palette. I’ve gone nuts on the pastels like I never have before with these colourful cotton candy shades – some of which may contain artificial food colours…
Though rest assured none of it is harmful to my wellbeing… in fact, the soothing hues much like the recent reappearance of sunshine brightened up my mood a great deal, which can only be good. 😉
