I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Tunesful Tuesday #1: Within Temptation

I have quite a wide range selections of music on my ipod and on my itunes, it range from heavy metal to the popish of song, new age music to dance euphoria. I’m a huge music devotee, I spent my entire teen years reading nothing but Smash Hits, I would drive my parents crazy by recording everything and anything on the Spice Girls (back when they was popular) and playing back to back Michael Jackson songs. I was the quint essential teenybopper. When I was studying fashion Journalism I dubbed in music journalism  as the two subjects are so closely linked it be silly to completely ignore music journalism, we all seen how Lady Gaga incorporate fashion & music.
So Tuesday will now be known as Tuneful Tuesday, where I will talk about music that I like, I have listen to recently and what has been on my playlist.

So Today I will talk about my favorite band: Within Temptation

 

I was first introduced to this band through my hubby Richard as at the time I was bored with chart music and bored with the likes of Girls Aloud (those I do listen to them) and just general rubbish radio music. We did a search through the now deceases Limewire (this was a couple years ago) and found them.
I can’t remember the first song I heard but it was the round the time of the album ‘The Silence Force’.
Within Temptation Is a Female Dutch rock/metal band fronted by Sharon Den Adel. They have released 5 albums in total and won countless of awards.
The singing style of Sharon Den Adel is what make this band work, she been noted to sing in tunes when singing live (which is very hard for any singer to do) and to be able to throw her voice to different style (you need to listen The Heart Of Everything to understand what I mean).
The guitar rift isn’t as heavy as in other band but it still there, no mean growl as you find from other band in the metal/rock genre, it symphonic but it easy to listen to, so you can rock out in your room if you wished to.
There last album ‘ The Unforgiving’ was a concept album based on a comic story and short film, in my opinions its feel a lot heavy and solid where you really get a beginning, the middle and the end.
I was due to see them last time they played in the UK, but due to personal problem I couldn’t see them live, so I’m hoping I will next time.
I rant and rave about this band as they do deserve more recognition in the UK music industry and to be played on radio or at least on music channel, I rather have Within temptation then some of the songs that are played on radio at the moment.
So yeah I have attached a music video from their last album ‘The Unforgiving’, it a taster of their music and what I have been talking about.So yeah there you have it, my favorite band and it constantly on my playlist. Have you heard about them, if so what your favorite song?
