Selfish

  I think the word ‘Selfish’ is thrown around a lot nowadays as a bad thing, yes it can mean being unkind to another person and that isn’t good. But I think it’s important to remember the true meaning of the word selfish, to look out for yourself and look after yourself, which is definitely something we should be doing!! Most of the time I find myself agreeing to do things I don’t really want to do because I don’t like saying no, but that’s not fair on me, I’m letting myself down! Have you ever not wanted to do something or go somewhere but gone along with it because you feel obliged to? did you spend the entire time thinking of what you could be doing and how you wish you weren’t there? Next time say no! (*Obviously there are times when you shouldn’t say no, your grandma’s birthday party being one of them!*) Remember to treat yourself with the same respect you treat others, and demand that they treat you with the same respect! Being Selfish is a good thing! Sinead psst . .  click here to download these amazing watercolour brushes for photoshop and make your own quotes!

Charity Shop Find

Can you believe this cardigan is from a charity shop? Me neither! I’ve learnt to be quite thrifty recently and couldn’t believe my eyes when I walked into Cancer Research and saw this beauty hanging up! It’s so soft and the quality is amazing, for a mere £5.00!! I love the length, though it’s a bit tricky to wear with jackets so might be worn a lot more when the weather get’s better! I’m not a big fan of colour, so I think camel is the perfect accent to my black, white and grey wardrobe! I’ve dressed it up a bit with my black coated jeans from Topshop, and my heeled sliders but it’s the sort of cardigan you can wear with pretty much anything! I’ve always been one to pop in to charity shop’s on occasion, but finding gems like this remind me that you can find such great quality items at a fraction of the price, plus no one else will have it!   Cardigan: Cancer Research | T shirt: H&M | Jeans: Topshop | Heels: H&M Old | Bag: Zara| Watch: Larsson & Jennings   Sinead x

eLCy

Follow my blog with Bloglovin So here’s another fun fact about me.. I also happen to have an amazingly talented sister who runs her own clothing line~ eLCy clothing. As you can imagine this is great news for me, first dibs on new styles, exclusive sample sales and ..well.. pretty much a personal seamstress (if she ever had the time that is!). eLCy is “lingerie and clothing for the young at heart”, I’d describe it as handmade pieces perfect for the beach and the bedroom. It started with jersey basics with a twist but she’s recently gone in to intimates and with her upcoming festival collection on it’s way there’s no stopping her! So after much begging and pleading I have in my hands the new Kendall bralet, with it’s ribbon ( oh so elegant) fastenings and eyelash lace trim it screams hand made .. you won’t find one of these baby’s in the high street! As a member of the small boobs society I love soft bras.. hey it’s the one thing that’s actually good about having small boobs.. you don’t have to wear over the shoulder bolder holder’s! I know no one else can see it, but there’s something about wearing pretty underwear that makes you feel special and gives you a certain confidence! Start from the bottom up .. or the inside out? As the little sister of a clothing label I have also managed to wangle you lovely readers ( hi Mum) a discount code! So if you too want that “I’m wearing nice underwear” glow then make sure you go to www.elcyclothing.com and enter ‘LOVESTYLEMINDFULNESS ‘ to get 10% off your order.. did I forget to mention that there’s also free delivery at the moment? What are you waiting for!   Sinead x

Spreading Happiness

I love this quote, I try to remember this always. Smiling is such a small thing to do and uses less muscles ( hello wrinkles) than frowning. Just the physical act of smiling makes you feel happier when your sad and getting a smile from an unknown stranger can make someones day! I always remember the flip side of this when I feel like someone’s getting at me – don’t let them change your smile! They’ve probably got personal things going on.. they’re not mad at you.. they’re mad at the world!

Texture

I Found this jacket in the sale last week at H&M, I’ve had my eye on it for a while so you can imagine my excitement when I found it on the sale rail for a mere £15!! I couldn’t find it online to link but there were loads in store and I’ve seen them since in other stores! These little jackets are perfect because they’re structured they give a smarter look than a cardigan, and you can throw them on with anything (like I have!) and it makes an outfit! I love playing with textures in my outfit’s and thought the shaggy texture of the jacket worked well with my Zara croc skin leather bag (which I also happen to be in love with). Jacket: H&M , T Shirt: Topshop old Jeans: Topshop, Boots: H&M, Bag: Zara, Watch: Larsson & Jennings, Hat: H&M Old
