LFW - My say | Style & Inspiration

Ahh fashion week. The 'glitz' - The 'glamour' - and The latest in this seasons trends. Or for me it was more The panic - The rush - and The dissemination through this seasons trends and the pieces in collections I'd actually want to wear.

My idea of fashion is not the same as others. The last 7 or so years I've never really swayed in what I wear, if it doesn't suit me it doesn't make it to my wardrobe.. Well.. bar a few naive test runs just to make sure I haven't been missing out on those dropped waists or super short shorts, And trust me when I say every time I've found.. I'm really not missing out.


What a waste | Thoughts & Inspiration

For anyone that knows me you'll know that I like stuff. Lots of stuff. Stuff makes me happy. Period. I'm currently standing at a total of 11 body lotions (why I don't know), 24 perfumes, a stupid 88 nail polishes and 57 magazines (including all 14 issues of 'Love' Magazine and each one is practically a forest on its own) to be precise.

Now I'm never one to get overly passionate about the idea of minimising my personal waste footprint, although oddly my desk at work is pretty minimalist with everything I use for work mainly digital, and a desk of re-usable items all put in their place via oversight from my OCD controlled mind. But overall I'm the kind of person who L-O-V-E-S shopping, every form of chic packaging, keeping tickets for my stub box and just like you I go to the supermarket and buy items that come in a plastic, card or tin container.


The perfect relationship | Thoughts & Style

During a visit to one pretty seaside location and another pretty countryside location, 2 couples met in what was to be the joining in hands and lives to each other. I was blessed to have been one of the few chosen to witness these occasions with both being such intimate events, and also to meet some really lovely people who I would genuinely say I can see become personal friends and not just acquaintances (plus I got to dress up in this very doll-like structured green metallic dress - now who wouldn't be happy).


The REAL me | Thoughts

I'm currently sitting in the car on the B1040 on the way to Nottingham with my other half in one of the many trips we've done across the country in recent weeks, hosting an outrageously annoying cold and harbouring enough tissue to create my own mini forest - sounds pretty glamorous right? I've been sitting here for a couple of hours and it's been the perfect situation to ponder the usual mixture of life events, calendar dates, new friendships, family updates, vlogs and finally my slice of the internet that is Thoughts of a Shell; and something has become quite apparent.

I'm sure a lot of you will have already seen this competition either dotted around Instagram feeds, in Facebook posts or advertised in Londons top free female lifestyle paper 'Stylist', and although this competition is pretty much over I wanted to share with you my last minute outfit entry and also my little trip to Europe's largest man made beach!

When I saw recently that my favourite healthy dessert of choice Yoo Moo were running a little fashion competition over on their Instagram, I couldn't resist a little snap and hashtag, especially when this little number was so fitting!
