My Rock & Roll Style

My initial idea for this post was to take pictures of myself wearing some of my rock-inspired pieces. However, I will have to do that at a later stage, as I am in the middle of clearing out my wardrobe, and can’t quite get my hands on the clothing I require…….oh well…….on to Plan B!

Here is one of my style inspirations – Chrissie Hynde:

Rock & roll or what? I have compiled a list of clothes which I think no rock chick should be without (I still have to get some of these!)

  • Doc Martens – I currently have a lilac pair, but this pair are on my want list! There is a Doc Martens shop in Belfast, so I might get lucky…..here’s hoping…..
  • Fingerless gloves – I love the fishnet ones and I bought a similar pair to these ones today
  • Faux leather skirt – I have one similar to this minus the studs
  • Quirky rock dresses – really anything goes here, I have a couple of funky dresses which I can toughen up with accessories. I haven’t bought a rock-inspired dress yet, I will keep looking – though I love this one !
  • Biker jacket – now this is a must-have for any rock chick! I have a couple of them similar in shape to this one, plus I don’t have just black, I have three other colours – dusky blue, red and white.
  • Studded boots – I would love a pair like this
  • Faux leather trousers – I have a couple pairs of these – wax-style ones are great too. My wax-style ones are purple.
  • Band T-shirts – I have a range of these, from Thin Lizzy and Led Zeppelin to the Rolling Stones and T.Rex, plus these can be any colour and they can also be vest tops or hoodies.
  • Denim shorts – I have one pair of these and I have yet to find them after wearing them during the summer. Probably in the back of the wardrobe……gives me an excuse to buy another pair soon!
  • Converse – simply the comfiest shoes ever! I have six pairs, I love these!

So there you have it. I would probably add more things to this list. I will do a rock and roll accessories post soon – stay tuned! #mystyleinspiration

Life’s Little Indulgences

We all deserve little indulgences every now and then. Perhaps after you’ve had a stressful week at work or maybe the family are pushing your buttons once too often.  Or maybe you feel very down and need something to perk you up.  These items are my little indulgences!

  • Quirky jewellery  (like this and this)
  • Perfume (my current ones are Glow by JLo, Britney Spears Hidden Fantasy and Jo Malone’s English Pear and Freesia)
  • Chocolate
  • Hot chocolate (extra creamy)
  • Cupcakes!
  • Flavoured coffees and teas (at home I have ginger tea, spicy chai tea, Earl Grey tea – original and orange, chocolate tea, gingerbread lattes and honey and ginger lattes). Depending on what I fancy, I currently drink either ordinary tea, spicy chai tea or ginger and lemon tea. I am also partial to hazelnut coffee 🙂
  • Taking photos for my Instagram page

These little treats are great for giving me a little boost, what are yours?

My Blogging Goals

I have been planning my future blog posts for the past month. So a quick update on what I plan to blog about:

  • My three favourite genres of music – Rock, Metal and Country. These posts will show my music personality. I will split these over several posts. I will have an artist in focus for each post, and I am currently drafting these in longhand before typing.
  • I will continue my quote packages – my current status on these centres on finding themes to slot these into.
  • I plan also to write about my spiritual life. I don’t particularly follow conventional religion, preferring instead to focus on New Age things such as crystals, angels and spells. I also find Wicca very healing. I am currently researching more about these areas, with a view to drafting these in longhand before typing.
  • Finally I will continue my book posts, as they are proving quite popular.

Hope to start on one of these ideas very soon!
