OVERALL ::: CROPPED PALAZZO & LONG DUSTER

 

I have come to terms that regular length trousers will never be long enough on me no matter how generous they are in length. It is part of my vision to be able to create a line of super long trousers / pants collection in the future for tall women like myself. At least trousers long enough for women with long legs.

Today’s look is another example of a not long enough trousers but “men”, I had to rock it like that 🙂 But seriously, do you have length problems with trousers?

 

OCTOBER BLOGS IN REVIEW & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 
Here in Ireland, it is a bank holiday today. I believe it is the same in other parts of the world that celebrate “Halloween”. Although it is a bank holiday, someone like myself and many other online Entrepreneurs (Bloggers, Vloggers, Writers, Coaches etc) have to work. It is interesting when you live a lap top life because there is always something to do 🙂

Furthermore, even though I have to work, working today is one of those things I consider IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT! What do I mean? I will tell you that on Motivation for Monday, please stay with me.

THE GOOD DENIM ::: 3 WAYS TO STYLE ONE DENIM

 

One of the Kardashian sisters, Khloe, is trending right now because of her new denim line called the “Good American”. However, after reading the reviews of the denims, I concluded they are good BUT the price is ridiculously high like her fans says. The price of the denim starts at $197. Expensive right?

You may not be able to buy the Good American denim or jeans because they are so expensive but you can wear your high street ones stylishly. This is exactly what I am going to be sharing with you in this post.

CASUAL CHIC ::: HOW TO PLAY DOWN A DRESSY SHIRT

 

I knew it wasn’t going to be too long before I shared another way to spot this oversized bow detail shirt. I first styled it here a couple of weeks ago. I loved the shirt then and I still love it now and it is one piece that will be in my closet for a long time. 🙂

My MAMMOGRAM Experience + CYST Removal From My Breast (Breast Cancer Awareness Month)

“Recently”, I found an abnormality in my right breast. I was not sure so I went in to see my Doctor who immediately checked to see what the problem was…

I SPENT A DAY WITH YOUTUBE AT GOOGLE HQ, DUBLIN

 

 

At every chance I get, I do my best to inspire everyone to be who they want to be. On today’s post, I have been given another opportunity to share and remind you that it is okay to be who you want to be irrespective of your age, sex, circumstance, background,economic situation or where you live. Your present situation or status doesn’t define you, what you do in that situation is all the matters.

Last Saturday, 17/09, I had the opportunity to go and spend the day with YouTube at the Google Headquarters in Dublin. I opened my email about 2 weeks ago and I saw this invitation. I was humbled, honoured and happy because I was preparing for such a time as this and that is why I do my best to give my YouTube Channel everything.

Since I started doing Youtube, I do my best to upload at least one video a week. A lot of times I make 2 videos doing what I love; beauty, fashion and motivation / inspiration.
