Work hard, play harder

You will get nowhere in life without hard work and dedication, which should commence with enthusiasm and elegance.
Never, ever have I hit the snooze button on my alarm. If something needs to be accomplished it will be accomplished.
Waking up in the morning and knowing what lies in your day ahead is something that calms me yet brings out my pedantic nature.

Some may laugh or question my choice but before I go to bed at night you will find a spotless room and the next day’s outfit hanging on my door. A little OCD if you ask me but it pays off for the feeling you get when you wake up in the morning, prepared. On days of lectures, meetings or work I jump out of bed, wash then tame my bed headed locks before doing my makeup. A cup of tea is always a must before I sit and indulge on the morning news to catch up with current affairs. I then get ready and choose my shoes before picking up my already packed bag and dash off.

Punctual but not too early is a good routine to catch onto.
I love being at University in the city centre. In between lectures and seminars I can shop or grab a starbucks and still only be a few minutes away from home.
Work is a little different, it’s challenging working in a city centre and spending all day on your feet is difficult however it’s all worth in the end.
Whether the sun is shining in the glorious city of Newcastle or the rain is making the high street into a river, life goes on.

It’s the time’s when you have a little too much work or you are dealing with a difficult customer that frustrate and agitate you to a max but just remember the harder you work the harder you play. 

I may have a 4 day week at uni with one day off to catch up on my uni work and then work the remaining 2 days, it may rain, my flatmates may leave the kitchen a mess. I may not get in til late at night and have to be up early the next morning but in the end I come home feeling accomplished. The feeling of accomplishment means when that next night out comes around you can let your hair down and enjoy, or perhaps you buy that ridiculously priced top that you do not really need. Who cares? Darling you have worked for it.


The tights featured were sent to me by Jen from the Pantyhose Project. I am wearing Semi-opaque and ultra gloss tights and they are fabulous (especially the ultra gloss which make your legs look gorgeous without the need of a tan!).
Shoes are by Schuh and Miss Selfridge.
