Alex in Wonderland

I'm sure I'm not the only one who was as obsessed with Alice in Wonderland as younger Alex was (definitely still am, see my 21st birthday party theme!) so this dress is what dreams are made of! Admittedly it's a little more revealing than the original Alice in Wonderland dress, and is a little big for me so isn't completely what my dreams are made of, but it's pretty damn close!

As it is revealing down the middle and sides, I thought I'd show how it looks with a little bralet thing underneath for a little more modesty too!

What I Wore This Week #16

Sorry for a few missing 'what-I-wore-this-week's, so here's a little catch up to make up for it. Hope you enjoy!

Struggling

Struggling. It's a word that can sound so dramatic and yet be the only word that describes how you feel, even if it's something quite small. I feel like over the past few months, Bambella Blog has struggled. Since starting back at uni I find trying to keep up with uni work, a social life and this blog is incredibly difficult. As I am now in my second year of uni, everything counts towards my final grade now so I have been in the studio working all day, everyday since the beginning of the year to get as much quality work done as I can. As well as that, Jack and I are trying to be healthy so cook from fresh everyday and each week make a plan of all our meals. I'm also trying to make an effort with my social life, making sure I see people and have a bit of fun along the way. Then on top of that, is this blog. I don't want to get to the point where blogging becomes a burden rather than fun, but I can feel it drifting that way at the moment. I want to keep posting good quality content, at a frequent rate (not to mention the same on my Youtube channel), but working all day, then arriving home when it's getting dark to have dinner and then try and take outfit pictures in awful lighting is getting a little too much.

Don't get me wrong though, I totally love blogging. It's my favourite hobby in the whole world and there is very little I love more than the feeling of Bambella Blog growing and improving. But it's just like too much of anything, after a while, however much you love it, it starts to take it's toll and become less enjoyable. I also feel like for all the work I'm putting in to both posts and videos, the response I get just doesn't seem to equate and as you can imagine, this really brings down my spirits and motivation.

To be honest, I have no idea why I'm even writing about this. I know I've mentioned it briefly in past posts, but I felt like it's got to the point where I need to properly address it, and basically ask for your help. Does anyone else have similar feelings at the moment? Has anyone been at this point, and has overcome it and seen the light? Should I even carry on at all?? Argh! I don't even know what to think any more. A little help? Anyone?

Blazer Vest Chic

The cold is coming, so scarves are entering! Whilst this outfit doesn't contain many layers, this snood is so incredibly warm that I can wear almost anything and I will be toasty. This is also a benefit when wearing this new blazer vest from She Inside as it's quite thin so gives almost no warmth, but it makes a simple outfit look so chic and 'grown up' (<- lol so lame). What do you think of this look?

Goldie London Dress Cover

I'm getting way too excited about Christmas already, any one else like that too? I feel strange about it though as I feel like it's not cold enough yet to have been bonfire night the other day and Christmas just 46 days away! I am quite glad though as I don't have to wear layers upon layers yet as I'm not a fan of winter fashion, so can still wear simple little cover-ups like this from Goldie London and crop tops with jeans.

Also how insanely gorgeous is this bag!? I actually won it on a Facebook giveaway (which is super cool as I didn't even think people won those!). It's from Baia Bags which is a company I have admired for a while and winning this was so exciting!

Beau Beads UK Choker Necklace

I was going to just  include this necklace in an outfit posts, but sometimes I feel special items can get lost in the blur of a whole outfit and wanted to make sure it got the recognition it deserved. This gorgeous chocker is from Beau Beads UK which is a jewellery brand recently started by my lovely friend Emma. I literally cannot stop wearing it as I feel it gives a really effortless edgy look to a what might be otherwise plain outfit! There are loads of others to chose from on her Etsy store so I'd really recommend having a look. These little chocker as well as all her other items are only £6, which I think is amazing as it's handmade and something like this in a high street store could be up to £20!

She is also holding a giveaway at the moment where you could win one of the chokers simply by following Beau Beads UK Instagram page, and liking and regraming this picture! You have nothing to lose so be sure to give it a go!

Falmouth Adventure Outfit

Jack and I went on a little Saturday adventure the other day around Falmouth, popping to the beach, town and the docks. We made a little video of our day which will be up on my youtube channel soon so head over and subscribe to be notified when that's up! We also took a few pictures of my outfit so thought I'd share those with you too!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As it's that time of the year again, I thought it would be a fab idea to spread the word a little more about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Having a following on here and other social media platforms allows me to share things with lots of you but I really appreciate my following numbers when it comes to sharing something truly important like this.

This is a subject close to my heart as my mum had breast cancer a few years back, and although now she is fine, there are many others who either have it worse, or sadly don't come out the other side. Even the smallest donation helps hugely, which is why I have made this little chart below to show a few things you can purchase from all price ranges from which a certain amount of the cost go to the charity and the links where you can purchase them from!
