This past week in-between work and the madness that is my life lately, I snuck away to my favourite distraction to snag some inspiration to share with you. I have today off for a Public Holiday so the plan is to catch up on loads at home, declutter beyond belief, put together my weekly to-do list and catch up on Project Runway All Stars. The beach beckons as well so I may drop down for a bit this afternoon (don’t you love long weekends wherever you are!). Now for my Pins…..This past week choosing my favourites was easy peasy! So many great Pins, so much great fashion, tons of inspiration. I am loving the pink fluffy coat and denim skirt, very cute! Alexa Chung who always inspires me when it comes to fashion does it again with the coolest denim dress. Karlie Kloss looks amazing in a long cape with her Chanel bag. Cute pointed toe Kate Spades and a lush red handbag captured my interest right away as well. The SJP Pin (I never get bored of SATC stock photos) is fitness as well as fashion motivation, and finally I am totally crushing on Valentino’s S&S 2015 campaign with its pretty dresses in pastel colours. Have you caught the Pinterest bug yet? Thank you for commenting and have a great week!
Work, studying, the gym, home renovations and worrisome news from home became all-consuming last week. With the craziness came a total mind block and as the days flew by, so did the blank spaces normally occupied by my posts. I started my blog as an escape to write about the things that I enjoy, fashion, food, beauty, travel and shopping. I have read about the importance of consistency and the need to post on social media sites to keep the momentum up, but sometimes focus will shift and lunch with a friend won’t be about photographing my food but rather about sharing stories and just enjoying each other’s company. Full time blogging would be an absolute dream, part-time blogging would be ideal, but for me blogging when I can really focus on my posts and not just fill blank space is my current goal. Life isn’t always going to be perfect, so my plan is to be a realist when it comes to my blog and just enjoy the ride! Thanks so much for your comments and for continuing to follow along.
While my blog is dedicated mainly to fashion, beauty and lifestyle, I look forward to sharing more of my inspirations, everyday life and travels in 2015 over on my Instagram at @buddhachicandbuttercream. Here I share some of my more recent photos.
When I first introduced this post it was meant to be a one Friday deal but after discovering how much everyone enjoyed it, I decided to keep it as a weekly post. Pinterest for me is a great source of inspiration in a variety of ways. Full of fashion and beauty tips, great recipes, crafty things and of course tons of design ideas for the home. This week my favourites are all about the New Year and starting it off with some ideas for change. A home clean-out guide for the New Year (I can completely relate to the magazine advice!) has me in super tidy mode. I have been discovering several really cute Pins on organizing my work space and creating a simple dressing room for my clothes which would simplify life a little. Eight things happy people do in the first five minutes of their day tweaked my interest as usually mine is spent hitting the snooze button! Louboutins (okay not really about the topic I am posting about but they are lush), enough said. Some advice on stylish habits to adopt for 2015, that one captured my interest as well. For more of my Pins check out the link in my sidebar. What are your favourite things to Pin about? Thank you so much for your comments, have a great weekend!
I am so excited to be embarking on another year but before I get started, I want to wish each and every one of you a very happy and healthy New Year! I have only been blogging for just under two years but the support and the amazing connections I have made through buddhachic and buttercream have been heartwarming. I started my blog in 2013 as a hobby and although my posts may not be regular (I work full-time plus study part-time as well), your support has given me a platform to chat about the things I enjoy outside my normal work day. This year travel, home, beauty and of course fashion will continue to be a major part of my posts.
Now for resolutions. I try not to be a skeptic but for moi resolutions can be self-defeating if I don’t hit the ground running 1st January! This year, I have a list of many on my mind but the first of my top two would be spending more time with family and friends (this almost always involves travel but definitely my priority). Secondly my health – yoga/meditation, eating healthier (who doesn’t have that one on their list!), avocados are my new best friend, drinking more water and consuming less sugar. The rest of my list contains more personal goals and I don’t want to bore you with those as it may involve a 4 part post on my behalf!
I would love to hear what your resolutions are and please leave links to your posts/sites as I love to read my favourites but definitely enjoy discovering new ones along the way.
With so many out there I want to thank you for taking the time to have a peek inside my blog world via buddhachic and buttercream, you guys are the best!
I cannot believe how quickly this past year has flown by. Christmas Eve is upon us and I am super excited to be home to celebrate with family and friends for the first time in almost four years! Gifts are almost wrapped and my favorite Christmas chocolates are at the ready. A little snow would be nice but we shall wait and see. Tonight will entail traditional Christmas movies, and tomorrow spending the day with everyone and appreciating having us all together will take center stage. I wish you all the happiest of holidays and a very merry Christmas!
With Christmas preparations all in place, I have started to turn my mind towards New Years. What to wear, ideas for celebrating, and starting the New a Year off with sensible resolutions are all on my mind. Will it be a casual get together on the beach, a simple night in to watch the celebrations unfold on television, or an all out glam evening somewhere nice? The first two require little or no preparation but the last option would definitely require this lovely all Topshop look. The dress, shoes, earrings and bag are the sparkly sort of glam I would go for. What do you have planned for this New Years Eve? Thank you so much for your comments!
