Pointless Portrait.

week5. Pretty quiet week this week, mainly been working away on putting together the event I'm planning in May. I'm actually really enjoying my self assigned, Event Management position. I've also been out running a lot, for my 10k training. I'm starting to enjoy running again, and I'm starting to have some hope for completing the race in a decent time.

This week I also took a trip to Newcastle with my mum. My dad sometimes works down there so we tagged along for a day in the Metro Centre. I picked up some great new items, including some amazing orange brogues, that I'm sure will be in and outfit of the day soon. Still not had any luck with the perfect dress outfit, so wish me some more luck please.

Coming Soon

Coming Soon
Coming Soon by jens21

( French Connection stripe dress & Bankfashion Kitsch Couture Miley Leopard Shoe Boot | Therapy Dress Stripe Tunic & Asos Pumpkin Suede Pointed Court Shoe | Izabel Zig Zag Sheer Dress & PIERRE BALMAIN Canvas Wedge | Oasis long sleeve dress & Violet Chelsea Boots )

Coming soon, within the next few weeks (and months) I've got a lot of social events organised, so I'm currently on the look out for the perfect outfit(s). I'm completely obsessed with the bodycon'esk long sleeved dresses and the heeled shoe boots, so I've put together a few opitions over on Polyvore to help me find an outfit.

I totally love all of these dresses, but as you might know if you read my last post, I currently have red ombre'd hair, So I think I might need to go for one of the black and white dresses for the first events and leave the brighter dresses for a few months away, when I'm sure my hair with have changed by.

So wish me luck in my hunt for the perfect outfit, and I will of course keep you all updated with what I decided to wear.

"When in doubt wear red"

I try my best to live by the rule that, when something doesn't make you happy anymore, change it. And lately I've been trying to change a lot of things. But I decided to start with something small, my hair.

Some of you may remember that at the end of last year I went for an ombre style with my hair. Well this week I changed it up a bit. I'm still a massive fan of the ombre style but wanted something a bit brighter. I went for the red dip dye look, and honestly I love it. Every morning when I do my hair it makes me smile, and it doesn't get much than starting the day with a smile.

(oh I also thought I'd add in a pic of my hair bow, I love how this looks with the red now, but haven't been brave enough to wear it outside yet.)

Pointless Portrait.

week4. The past few weeks since christmas have been some weird ones. Other then trying to get over being ill, I've actually had some big decisions to make, which I still haven't really done yet. I decided to take some time out from work, after being super busy before christmas I felt like I needed to take the time to decided what I really wanted to be doing.

So other than trying to plan out my whole life, I've been working on some side projects, currently planning an event for my Brothers football team(work in progress). I've also taken up running again recently as myself and my brother and sister will be running a 10k race for charity in April. So wish me luck for my training.

I also took some time for myself and did my own Acrylic Nail.(A skill I taught myself a few years ago, well worth it for all the money I save.) I love my nails like, I just never manage to find the time to do it.

“So I want to take this time out and apologize for things I have(n’t) done”

So it seems Elton John may have been right, Sorry really does seem the hardest word to say. I've being trying to compose this post for a few days now, and I just don't know where to begin.

I can only blame myself really, I completely fell off the blogging bandwagon lately, the rush of the festive period totally knocked me for six. Sadly I was super ill over the christmas holidays, just managed to perk up for new year, which in turn sent me right back to bed the next day. Along with all of this, I seem to have so much going on in my personal life.

Blogging seemed to just fall to the back of my brain, and the bottom of my many to do lists. This actually made me take a step back and think about what I was really doing, what I was trying to achieve with SecretStyle. And in all honesty, I don't think I'm trying to achieve anything, I'm just a hugh blogging fan. I love reading others blogs, and I actually enjoy writing this. I guess with SecretStyle I'm still trying to find where I fit within the blogging world, and trying to find my own personal blogging style, and really I'm also trying to find out where I fit personally within my own life.

So I'm very sorry for the lack of posts recently, I'm sorry I failed at Dressember, I'm sorry for being rubbish. I'm just sorry. But this is a new year after all, a new start. 2012 is going to be my year, lots of exciting things planned and I do this time promise to keep you all updated.

Thanks for sticking with me.
