Life | Snow, Spring Fashion & New York

Well the snow looks like it’s finally disappearing, I’m not going to lie when the Beast from the East was first being discussed I was not here for it, I had spent too many days waiting for snow that was promised, that would give me a snow day and I was let down time and time again – I was ready for lighter and warmer days but Storm Emma had other ideas and Scotland came to resounding halt – which resulted in not one but 3 snow days. So I was pretty happy to pause my Spring dreaming and enjoy the mounds and mounds of snow that was lying outside. Bonus days – work was called off so I had nowhere to be or any way of getting anywhere, it was bliss. Wandering round in the snow when the blizzard was taking a break and of course walking to the nearest shop to pick up chocolate and popcorn – I mean everyone else in the country had panic bought everything else.  Then coming home to cosy under the blankets and catch up with all the shows and films. I feel like we need a few days a year like this; Where we have no choice but to be at home – give yourself the chance to recharge or without feeling like you need to be doing something. It was definitely the unexpected break that I needed.

There are still remnants of snow on the pavements and big mounds in corners of streets and carparks, but I’m hoping we have seen the last of the white good-ness and that Spring is going to make it’s long-awaited appearance. I have been living in my parka for months now and although it has served me well through Winter  I am ready to remove myself from it and wear something a little more pretty – I’m excited to dress for Spring, wearing more colour and more structured outfits. I’ve included a little lust list of things I want to add to my wardrobe (affiliate links).
Little ditsy floral dresses (I know Miranda, groundbreaking) and vans and I desperately want a pale pink denim jacket. I’m also being practical and adding bright jumpers to my list because although the sun may be shining (if we’re lucky) it can still be a bit chilly – plus i’m loving sweaters at the moment.

It’s now less than a month until I head to New York for the first time and I am so excited about heading to my dream destination – I am in full-blown planning mode so if you have any recommendations throw them my way.  I’ve also had fun picking up a few bits of clothes which I’m sure I’ll share on here during the trip. I booked my trip in May last year and I remember feeling like it was such a long time to wait but the months have flown by. I always need to have something to look forward too to keep me focused and this is a big one so the wait hasn’t been too excruciating (My friends May disagree). I have a New York bucket list that I’m going to share before I go – we’ll see how well I do and what I manage to tick off once I return.

Before I go I wanted to share a song that I have on repeat at the moment. Seeing Blind from Niall Horan and Maren Morris – I am familiar with Maren’s music as I am regular listener of the Country section on Apple Music… and well I’m sure everyone knows Niall from One Direction – If it wasn’t for Maren’s appearance I’m afraid to say I wouldn’t have otherwise given this a listen but I am so glad I did. I was never into One Direction but I am a fan of Niall’s voice in this song, I should give the rest of his album a chance. Lesson learned?  Never judge a song by the fact the singer used to be in one direction.


“Seeing Blind” from Flicker (Deluxe) by Niall Horan on iTunes

Preview, buy, and download the song “Seeing Blind” from the album Flicker (Deluxe) for £0.99. Free with Apple Music subscription.


Hope you enjoyed this little catch-up.
