Outfit Post: New Camera

It sucks when friends have to cancel plans. But I decided to take full advantage of the fact that I was already fully dressed, wearing a full face of make up and had a bit of a play with my camera. I have a tripod now. Well, my dad's tripod - same difference.

Melly's Musings: Cyber Bullying

Morning. I hadn't planned to write this post - it wasn't scheduled or anything like that but I decided that something needed to be said. Over the past few days, I've had a couple of rather unpleasant comments on here. I won't dwell on them but the first one was a little cheeky. The second was downright mean and nasty. Now, I'm all for constructive criticism and I work constantly to improve the quality of what's on the blog, with regular features etc. And even invested in (read: was gifted with) a new camera. So, you have to understand that the blog is a work in progress. Also, might I add, a hobby. I work full time. One comment asked me my 'credentials'. My job is in Marketing, within the internet development team of a top UK jeweller. I don't need credentials to write a blog. Being a blogger is about having an interest in something. It's also about being brave enough to put yourself out there and I will always expect comments from people.

Wednesday Wish List #4: Leather

As Autumn approaches, leather is everywhere you go. It's a brilliant go to fabric and adds some serious edge to your wardrobe. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley works the leather trend perfectly

Melly's Musings: World Suicide Prevention Day

My musings are usually quite light-hearted and although important to me, may go over the heads of other people. After all, the outfit I'm wearing or thoughts on my career may not affect everybody. However, I hope that this post will provoke your thoughts and provoke you into action. September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day. As soon as this was brought to my attention (about 2 hours prior to writing this), I realised how profoundly the brief encounters I had had with suicide had affected my thoughts on it. About a year ago, I encouraged a lady that I knew, from church. Truth is, she's a real inspiration. She's a cancer survivor and a mom. All I said to her was that I was inspired by her strength, faith and amazing attitude. No matter what, she held it together and still found ways to encourage and get alongside other people. Following that, she actually came to me and thanked me. Adding that she had been extremely close to the edge and that my comment had helpe

What to Wear: New Term

The new term is almost upon us. New term = new clothes. Oh, and lots of reading in preparation, of course. But going back to school/college handily coincides with the coming Autumn season - what better excuse do you need to revamp your wardrobe?  At uni, my style stepped up, thank goodness. But I look back at what I wore during my college days and literally die inside. So, this post is partly for all the students out there who are stuck for ideas. But it's partly for me to fantasize about how I wish I'd dressed at college.  Believe me, it is possible to be slightly lazy when those winter mornings arrive and you're getting ready in a rush (because you wanted the extra few minutes in bed. No? Just me?) and still look gorgeous.
