May

May came and gone like most of the months this year. I have been occupied with various projects both work and personal life related. Although I am very happy I have the opportunity to experience so many things, I am getting to the point where I just want to rest and switch off.

Waiting and planning for the coming holidays (that are still a long way to go) is something that gives me equal pleasure of actually going on one. Building up the expectation, looking at budgets and variety of accommodation options is so satisfying for me. Are you the same ?

Your favourite post of last month was a summary of what I have been doing in April (available here if you missed it). I am very happy that you are enjoying my monthly summaries as these post give me a great opportunity to look back at different things and reflect.

If I was to choose my favourite post, it would be a look featuring the most unusual for me skirt (available here). The only thing I am going to say about it is to never say ever as the life goes on and things change !

May have been a good month when it comes to movies for me. I went to the cinema on number on occasions and out of everything I watched, I would highly recommend seeing Tully if you have not watched it already. Motherhood is not something that I know anything of, however honesty and openness is always a key to me and this movie gives you just that.

Another thing I have been enjoying in May is warmer weather. UK is not the best of places (especially North of England) if you are after proper summer. Having said that we had nice few weeks and I had a change to wear something more time of the year appropriate !

Ps. An amazing state house that you can see on the featured image can be found here if you are interested. Unfortunately, it is not my house… just in case you were wondering !

January

January as always is a new start for me and this year was no exception. It was a busy and  memorable month but I have managed to achieve some of my goals and work on my physical and mental health. The highlight from January would have to be a trip to Amsterdam and I promise to share more on the subject in the coming weeks !

Story by Aggie 5

You may remember that I made a resolution to travel more in 2018 and I am making small changes to keep that alive. Once every month or two I want to be able to see something different and change the scenery even if only for the weekend…

My YouTube channel have been growing lately and I am surprise how many views from all over the world I started to attract. It is a work in progress but I am thrilled to be able to share my likes and dislikes as well as fashion and beauty inspirations. These views are keeping me going and motivate me further to make my content as good as possible !

My latest video is all about luxury buys that I made in 2017 worth investing in… (blog post on the same subject available here).

I have been loving few things in January and this & Other Stories coat would be my absolute number one. I have been wearing it on repeat and although it is much more masculine in style than my usual choice, I absolutely adore it.

Story by Aggie 1

Another of my absolute favourites for January would be this lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury.  I love everything about it from durability to the intensity of the colour. It is on a pricy side but if it was only one thing you are willing to try from Charlotte Tilbury I would say it has to be this one !

The most popular post in January came as a surprise to me…You loved December and Favourite pair of boots ! The one you liked and checked out the least was an outfit post (available here) in my opinion worth having a look !

What was your January like ?

I would love to know !

Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope to see you all very soon…

December

This post is published a little bit later than expected but life is unpredictable and sometimes you just need to adjust. For the last week or so, I have been fighting sever cold and chest infection and although I am on right track to recover, I gave myself some time to rest and relax and just normally be ill…

December have been such a busy month for me both work and blog wise. I have been recording more videos than ever before (my YouTube channel is available here if you want to check it out). However, what gave me the most satisfaction was my What I wore Sunday… 2017 post combining all the looks I have shown you last year.

I have not initially registered how many different styles, colours and variations I have shown you… I have definitely grown, failed and learnt my lessons in 2017 and for that I am most grateful for.

What I wore Sunday… 2017

December being a very festive month, it was also a month of spending… Buying gifts and making surprises is something that I love and believe it or not gives me even more pleasure that buying for myself.

FullSizeRender 27

My most-loved purchase of December would have to be this coffee machine, that was my Christmas present to my husband. We have been using it non-stop for the last fortnight and I can confirm it is worth every penny spent on it !

IMG_4764

In regards to blog the most popular posts were outfit related and they are available here and here if you want to check them out. The post that you viewed the least was a train journey from Sri Lanka, also available on my channel. I personally really liked it and I hope you will have a chance to view it as well (available here).

January is going to be a fresh start for me and I have already made some plans for the future posts. You can definitely expect more What I wore Sunday outfits as well as a little bit of traveling. If you interested in where I will be going, make sure you follow my Instagram as I try to publish regular updates.

If there is anything, you would like to see from me- post, outfit idea, handbag comparison etc. let me know as I am very opened to your suggestions.

Thank you very much for your visit and I hope to see you soon !!

Love,

Aggie xx

November

November is one of my least favourite months. Cannot really explain why but somehow it feels gloomy and brings up bad memories. Last year my husband had serious accident this time of the year and it took him well over six months to recover.

This year November was different and it brought some changes both in our professional and private life which I am looking forward to embracing. The weather have been pretty mild and I had not had a chance to catch a cold (yet !). We also had our first snow in UK which made me feel a little bit more festive.

Last month was a month of spending… Right or wrong I have made few purchases that I will be able to share with you all in the near future. Season of sales, Black Friday and Cyber Monday is not something I go crazy about but somehow I felt that I needed to add some essentials to my wardrobe !

Most loved item‘ title would have to go to this Acne Studios scarf. It is the softest and warmest of scarves and the quality is to die for. I like the shade of grey as well, not too light not too dark.

Story by Aggie 4*

Second of the items I have been loving this month is the pair of sneakers by Isabel Marant you may have already seen here and here. They are not new, I got them last year but somehow only this autumn I have learnt to love them. They are super comfortable, well-made and add a little bit of edge to my outfits.

Blog has been doing very well last month and there were number of posts you really liked. Gifts ideas for her and him ended up on the top of your favourites. They were quite tricky to prepare so I am happy that you checked them out and enjoyed my suggestions.

The blog post that you liked the least was vlog from Brighton (available here if you are interested). I personally really like this post as it brings back positive memories but I agree if may not be for everyone.

One thing that I have missed in November is going for a walk. With so many nice villages  around where I live I should definitely do it more often than I do !

In December I am looking forward to some family time as well as documenting first Christmas on the blog. I cannot wait to share some of my Christmas traditions with you all and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

I have four different videos in a making on my YouTube channel (one of which is an incredible train ride from Sri Lanka…) so stay tune for that and do not forget to subscribe.

October

I always look forward to reflecting on what have happened in the last 30 days. I know that I have already mentioned this but it is so eye-opening process that helps me to prioritize and gives me the sense of achievement.

Story by Aggie 4

My professional life has been a centre of attention in October and whether right or wrong my priority on most days. Work-life balance is something that I struggle with and may need to address it in the near future.

As for my private life, the main highlight of the month would have to be our trip to Brighton. As my husband told me, it was a very original choice of destination but no regrets there… Seeing new places, taking everything in and memorizing is a real journey that I do not want to end.

The blog post you liked the most in October was beauty-related and can be found here if you missed it. The one you liked the least was a fairly recent style-related one, well-worth checking out in my opinion (available here).

I had a few fashion favourites lately, mostly clothing ones. To name just one or two, this coat from Zara is an absolute dream and the quality of the fabric is second to none. It reminds me of high-end giants coats like Joseph or MaxMara. Zara can be a difficult place to shop as the quality vary from item to item. That is why, I like to visit the store and get the feel of the item before buying anything.

Coat Zara

Another piece of clothing I have been wearing non-stop since I got it, is this silk shirt from & Other Stories. The fabric is very delicate, more spring appropriate but the way this shirt makes me feel is supper cosy and comfortable. It is a trusty staple that will stay in my closet for a very long time !

Shirt & Other Stories

Finally, I decided to develop my YouTube channel further and as a result I will try to publish at least one video a week. Creating videos is definitely more demanding than anything else I have tried before but the more I do it, the more pleasure and satisfaction I get out of it.

Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope to hear from you very soon !!

What was your October like ?

Love,

September

September came and went like there was no tomorrow. I was a good month, but wish I celebrated and treasured every moment even more than I did as there was so many good ones…

The main focal point of September was our trip to Sri Lanka as well as our wedding anniversary. I tried to document as much as possible and I am planning on sharing more videos with you in the coming weeks. I did a lookbook this week on my YouTube channel showing what I have been wearing during our escape. Something new from me that I have not done ever before but putting it together gave me huge satisfaction and I hope you will like it too !!

Reflecting on my blog activity is always very interesting and this month came as a surprise to me. The post that you viewed and liked the most was What I wore Sunday… anniversary dinner followed closely by What I wore Sunday… afternoon in York.

The least popular was Sri Lanka safari which was one of my favourite posts to write and maybe something quite different and unexpected.

There were many things I loved in September but if I was asked to name a few it would have to be my black leather jacket and Panama style hat that you probably seen far too much !!

AllSaints jacket (similar)

I have made one or two purchases lately and the one I would highly recommend is this denim shirt from Topshop. The quality is really good and it is such a versatile style that I am planning on styling over and over again !!

August

I feel like August was a good month for me. Not everything I set to achieve happened but that is what life is all about. Expecting unexpected is something that I always keep in mind !

What August has taught me is to stand my ground and believe in myself more. Self-confidence is something that I have to work on constantly with some days being better than the others but I think I am winning xx

Fashion-wise it was a very adventurous month. I made few purchases, some of which you may had a chance to see on the blog or my Instagram account.

My favourite new thing would have to be a pair of espadrilles from Castaner (first shown here). They are the most classic pair, exceptionally made and they will stay in my closet for a very long time !

Story by Aggie 22

Another thing worth mentioning is this Zara set, I got at the end of the month. I was eyeing this knit from the moment I first saw it but the shirt was a total surprise. I am not a huge fan of the prints, especially 70s inspired but somehow I could stop myself from trying it on. The end result is quite obvious on this picture !

Story by Aggie 5

Statistic-wise two most popular blog posts of last month would be from What I wore Sunday series Country life is never boring followed closely by Hollywood glamour. Interestingly, my personal favourite would be the end of the month for July. Looking back on the last thirty days, gives me sense of satisfaction and achievement.

I have also added an additional feature to my blog. It is called Shop my closet and you can find it in the main panel next to menu and contact links. I will try to list all my new finds as well as some timeless pieces from my wardrobe in case you are interested !!

Finally, I am really looking forward to September. The beginning of a new season as well as my wedding anniversary makes that month really special. I have one or two things planned that will come as a surprise so stay tuned for that !!
