New England Baby



I'm a suburbs baby and love the idea of finding little suburbs that I've never heard about. The hubby and I drive around and look at houses...I know that it sounds weird but I think I have the property bug like my mamma, I find houses and architecture glorious to look at. 

Anyway we found this amazing suburb called New England. It actually BEAUTIFUL and looks like a movie set in America. I want to live here! 

Anyway I happened to be wearing a very basic outfit  but I thought it fit my new 'area' perfectly :)
This jacket is a recent purchase from Zara and it just adds to the New England feel!

The Active Prepared Life #3 - Decrepit Superman

You may not know how proud I am of myself to still be doing this. One thing I've struggled with in the past is perseverance and I often give up when things aren't going to plan. But Im still on this and working towards change.

Beauty Bites| The Blue Hues

I rarely do my nails, but when I do they are usually in random colours like greens and blues, Thought I would share a quick view of my current blue hues collection. Im trying to get more into keeping up with my nails. I hope this gives a few ideas.

Pretty Pinks




I rarely wear pink though I love it so much, I feel like I look super young and with pink on it only makes it worst..but this dress was so pretty I had to wear it. and this cape is so gorgeous it makes me feel like a matador and I enjoy swinging it around like a weirdo.

Sunset On The River



























Over the weekend there was sun. It was cold, but there was sun. And thats what matters.
Me and the husband went to Kingston to hang by the river, it was great fun its so funny how people seem so much happier just with that little bit of light, honestly I felt like a new born. It was a beautiful day.

The Active Prepared Life #3

So I have to be truly honest with myself...last week was a complete fail. it was almost like I had forgotten about what I have been working on. Thats why this post is late...and I haven't posted in a week!

Neon Trousers

Another day out with the hubby navigating the land, I'm learning to appreciate whats around me and how gorgeous it all actually is.
I picked up these neon trousers in Topshop, they were the last pair! I thought they were a bit too 'out there' for me but as you know Ive been trying to break out of the shell that I found myself in whilst working within the corporate giants(..tangent).
Ive actually worn this look twice before and I actually think these are a now a staple. Shocking.

Hello Sunshine..Pleasure to Meet You

So happy that the sun decided to visit us shortly over the weekend, it meant that I could navigate my new area a little more. Since moving house I've not really had the chance to get to know where I live.
I must say its gorgeous, the parks and properties are aspirational especially with millionaires row around the corner :)
When the weather is 'warm' its easy to get exited and naked, but I decided to bring out the pins and layer this Zara Dress with a Shirt,

The Active Prepared Life #2

So I'm back and not defeated for round 2 of the Active Prepared life...and on reflection round 1 wasn't entirely successful but I know this is a process and not a quick sprint.

If you don't know what Im talking about check out my previous post here!

The key thing I noticed is that I tire by mid week, almost like I loose steam, and cant be bothered to continue to make effort for almost everything!

This is the main thing I want to improve, my PERSEVERANCE.

Leather & Faux Fur

Anyone who know me knows I love leather, seriously weird Im obsessed, but is just so easy to grab and wear. I feel like it goes with everything, it's for sure my go to fabric of choice and I think for evermore! Ive also got this little gilet and seriously its so warm, I can even risk getting a bit of leg out! and you guys will come to know... I love showing a bit of leg.

My Everyday Makeup


I thought I'd share my regular makeup items. At the moment these are my favourites and I use almost daily.

A Clockwork Orange

I've been wearing a lot more pattern and enjoying outfits that are a little bit more out of my comfort zone. Im trying to embrace the statement that 'every day is an occasion'.

The Active Prepared Life #1

A few weeks ago (25 March) a concept came to me about life and success. It became clear to me that the 2 key factors to achievement were 'Preparation' and an 'Active' approach. Really simple and basic but it has stuck in my mind.

New Things #1

So, in a bid to reduce my shopping habit I decided to keep a better track of the items I purchase. If I can see the items in full view, I think I'll have better respect for the items I buy and hopefully buy less.

Presenting my 'New Things Rail' - I purchased it from ikea (£6) along with the floral hangy thing (£8)

White & Leather


Still very chilly outside and I don't think it will be getting any warmer but I wanted to get a bit of skin out in a cropped top and high waist leathers. however they aren't as high as I would like so opted to layer with a denim shirt.

All Grey

Its April and we are all still praying for sun. I'm boycotting colour until it arrives. ( I'm not really).

Highs & Lows

As one of my first 'look' posts please ignore the 'Deer in the headlights' expression on my face. I'm trying to work out where would be best to post outfit picture...and I think the hallway is a good start, as I am often in a rush... I plan on changing this one day.


Well Hello There.

Hi,

Im Patricia, and this will be my final attempt at blogging. I have had a few in the past and writing any posting was a big issue for me (I never made more then a welcome post here and there). However Im a lot more mature now...(questionable) and I actually want to do this for reals.

Ive been finding a lot of solace in the blogsphere of late and its really rekindled my love for style and sharing. Some of you may know me from Youtube, some of you may not. I quite like the idea of remaining unknown and just sharing for the love of it.

I had got into a bit of a rut, but I'm so glad that I have developed a second wind, I am excited just to get going.

I'd love to get to know any of you who start reading, so do leaving me comments and questions x
