Fashion: Purple and Pinks

 Its that time of year again. You know when the weather is cooler and all you want to do is wear the darkest or the mutest colours. I am one of those people but sometimes its nice to inject a little bit of colour in there too. Currently my favourite are  Pink and Purples. 

Here are some of the items I am loving the look of currently....

Recently I have been loving a decent dress. Dresses that are classics and you can wear each year. 

Having a good top will inject a bit of colour if you dont want to be in all purple or pink. Here are a few of my favourites....
And just as important to any outfit are the bottoms, skirts or trousers here are some that I love the look of at the moment.....
And if you want to inject a little bit of pink or purple then ......
Love these colours. Xx Alonyo xX

Wardrobe : Declutter and Organise


October  is coming to an end. And that means only one thing. Cooler weather and shorter days. I love when the season change and the thought of wearing jumper dresses and puffer jackets actually excites me. But having a small space for to store my clothes I need to do swaps, declutter and organise every few months.

Here are my new and up to date tips as we move into autumn and winter.

  1. Get EVERYTHING out. All clothing, shoes and accessories need to come out even the items for the next seasons. Have them out so that you can see what you have.
  2. DECCLUTTER. This is the aspect which may take the longest. Ask yourself questions : Do I like it? Does it fit? Is it wearable? Does it suit your style? If you answer no to any of these questions then it is time to get rid of the item.
  3. So you have the pile of items that you don’t want anymore. The next thing is to decide where each of the items go. Any good quality items can be sold on DEPOP. Giving someone else the opportunity to wear what you don’t want. And it’s also nice to make some extra money.
  4. Clothes that are unwearable can be used in other ways. If parts of the fabric used is in good condition then cut into pieces and can be using as cleaning cloths around the house. Or if there is a lot of fabric in great condition take to a local school to be used in their Early Years department.
  5. Once you have decided what to get rid of from both seasons. Pack up the Spring/Summer clothes and items. I have been using these bags and labelling them. Just in case I need them for holidays. Pack them away with the labelling facing you so you know what you need to access if you require them before the season changes.
  6. Organise the Autumn/Winter items. Now you can see what you have. Each type of clothing has its section.
  7. Make a list of items you may need for the cooler months. And always have a look to see if you can get a further discount especially if you don’t need it immediately.

And voila Autumn/Winter wardrobe has been placed. Honestly this is the best time for me I regards to fashion. However some may say all I wear is black. But I love it.

Why it's taken too long......


At the beginning of the year I told myself I’m going to throw myself back into my blog. At one point I enjoyed writing on the blog daily or at least weekly, with ideas of topics swirling in my head constantly. The life hit and my routine was halted, the interest had gone. All the topic ideas that I once had I wasn’t interested in writing about anymore. I looked at this blog more as a chore than something I love. One thing about me is that if something that was once fun seems like work or a chore, I don’t want to do it.

Recently people have been sending me links about certain advice from my website. And I thought ‘wow, I wrote that for someone going through something similar.’ I enjoyed writing my posts. Sometimes it was therapy for my soul. As my mind has had a HUGE reset and my life is in a whole new routine which I am loving. Why not get back to something that I am enjoying soooo very much.

Every week there will be a post. (Someone hood me accountable please.)
