Happiness

I have this obsession with happiness,
I fight so hard for it,
I insist on it.

But now i think my obsession is destroying my chances,
wanting my own happiness, makes for selfish situations,
biased decisions

I’ve always believed you are in control of your own happiness,
your own future,

but sometimes leave it to fate,
let God take control,
follow your heart,
let your mind rest a little
be spontaneous,

live in the moment.

Floral, Stripes and a Turban

Recently i’ve been obsessed with matching prints, and this was my first attempt. Loving it, if i do say so myself.

So here are the outfit details for the curious Georges out there.

Trousers- ASOS
Shirt – Primark
Jacket- Mum’s closet (but i suspect debenhams, tag is worn)
Turban- Ebay (Got the scarf for £1, bargain much?)
Neck Scarf- Air port Duty Free (Dad picked it up for me)
Heels- New look (Although not pictured, I wore chunky heeled, open toes)

Enjoy, Nim Belle x

Cirque Du Soleil Review

So after much ado i recently went to see Cirque Du Soleil- Quidam at the Royal ALbert Hall Theatre, here’s my review.

Firstly, i’d been looking forward to going to a Cirque performance for about two years now. It was Algerie that really secured the need for me, however I never had a chance to go. Thus when I heard of Quidam I knew I had no choice.

We arrived at the Royal Albert hall at around 7:30pm and was promptly advised on where to sit, upon arriving at our stall we were offered the opportunity to upgrade our seats for FREE!! Of course we jumped at this offer and were reallocated to great front row seats. What an awesome start to the evening, right?

The show started with light humour and the first thing we noticed was the ability of the performers to command our attention without speaking. Each performance/act was magnificent, each performer a testimony to their craft. We were frequently blown away by the feats achieved and the daring levels that were being reached. There were interactive sections, jaw dropping and incredibly humorous sections. It really was a phenomenal performance by a modern circus. Although I could just about follow the story line, we did deduce a little about the girls journey, however i’ll leave that to you to discover if you ever do go to see Quidam.

All in all I give Quidam a healthy 9/10 and recommend whole heartedly that everyone see a Cirque performance.

Mother to Son


Well, son, I’ll tell you:
Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.
It’s had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor—
Bare.
But all the time
I’se been a-climbin’ on,
And reachin’ landin’s,
And turnin’ corners,
And sometimes goin’ in the dark
Where there ain’t been no light.
So, boy, don’t you turn back.
Don’t you set down on the steps.
‘Cause you finds it’s kinder hard.
Don’t you fall now—
For I’se still goin’, honey,
I’se still climbin’,
And life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.

Tea, Glorious (Green) Tea

Would definitely recommend a green tea diet

What is green tea?
Green tea is made from the leaves from camellia sinensis that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea originated in china, but it has become associated with many cultures throughout Asia.
Green tea can be bitter due to the organic leaves that are used. People add honey or sugar to the tea to give it some flavour. Green tea can include caffeine and there are also green tea’s that are decaffeinate. Because of the caffeine that is included in the green tea some people may be sensitive to it the first time they drink it and may affect their sleeping. To resolve this, green tea should be taken few hours before sleep or decaffeinated green tea can be replaced instead of green tea that has caffeine.
Green tea is known to relieve headaches, treat depression and is helpful in the treatment of…

#100DaysOfSnow

Outfits 1, 2 & 3.

As promised, I’ve started with the 100 outfits of winter snaps…

These snaps focus on my leather jacket, a key item for every fashion head. Took me a while to find the perfect Pleather jacket (New look- £40) and now I just cant get enough!

The fur  collar (asos- £24) helps to dress up the jacket. And really, who doesn’t love a bit of faux fur to help keep warm.

For more info on the other pieces I have on, feel free to contact me.

I love the English

Served a beautiful Oriental/Serbian lady this afternoon at work… she said something and it stuck to me “English people don’t dress for the winter, it’s freezing and they don’t wrap up”

It made me laugh, but just goes to show what a resilient bunch we are. Fashion first, and a hot drink to face the rest.

100 days of snow

This winter in the UK we’ll see a 100 days of snow (apparently)…

As autumn is my favourite season, and im not yet ready to let go, im going to do a winter/autumn mash up… like my good friends Phineas and Ferb :D

So in honour of Wautumn im going to post my 100 outfits for snow, but try and keep the Autumn spirit strong!
