4 Great Reasons to be Lazy! #fakeituntilyoumakeit LINK UP

I'm happy to hold my hand up and admit that I'm a lazy person!
Being lazy is not something shameful, or even negative.
In fact, being lazy means you hold some great life skills.
Being lazy can be a good thing.

People have been miss-labelled as lazy for years.
Laziness is NOT a bad thing.
Lazy people are not stupid or slow.
The opposite is often true.
Laziness is not something to shy away from.
Being a lazy person has some amazing benefits.

4 Great Traits of a Typical Lazy Person

What ARE you Wearing? It Doesn't Go!

It feels really good to wear some seriously bold colour from time to time.
I am a colour lover and often mix and match different shades but, this outfit takes colour to the next level.

I love a mega-clash but clashing high contrast colours can be intimidating.
Sometimes the thought of replicating a look like this can be scary.
This is because bold clashes look much bolder in real life.

The thing about a super-duper clash is that it may look great in a photo but in the cold light of a winter's day colours like these stick out like a sore thumb!

I'm more than happy to be a sore thumb but, if you're not, then it's easy to make an outfit like this one more wearable.
Just switch out one of the bold coloured pieces for a more grounding neutral of your choice.

It's not the first time I've clashed this bold blue coat with other colours.
Mixing various blues and pink.
Or bright blue, pale blue and red.
Subtle as a brick and I'm not sorry! 😛

I'm lucky to have friends and family that are not afraid to say what they feel.
So when a friend said to me...
"This is an interesting look."
"Quite clashy, eh."
{That was clashy, not classy!}
"Nothing really goes does it?"
They were not being mean or bitchy, just stating a fact, and I took it as a compliment.
For me, bold is beautiful!

Are you wary of a (super-mega-uber) bold clash?
Or, do you love to mix as much as me?
What are your favourite mixes?
Please let me know!

How NOT to be Jealous | #fakeituntilyoumakeit LINK UP

I've not got a jealous bone in my body.
I'm not boasting or being smart about it.
It's just a statement of fact.

I sometimes feign envy, for fun, but to be honest I'm not even sure I'm doing it right!

My husband thinks my lack of envy and jealousy is because I'm confident in who (and what) I am, but I'm not so sure he's right about that!

I often don't feel very confident.
{But do a good job of faking confidence on a regular basis!}

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring | 7 Favourite Winter Looks

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring! 7 Favourite Winter Looks | Fake Fabulous

My 7 favourite Winter outfits

Winter has been the usual mixed bag of odd Scottish weather.
Ranging from the glorious crisp days of winter sunshine to torrential rain to thigh-deep snow.

Despite the huge (melting) piles of snow outside, today was the first time I've felt the hopeful glow of Spring.

The sun is shining and there's a feeling of optimism.

Of course, it won't last long (this is Scotland after all!) and the rain will return at any moment, but for now, it's a slice of heaven and the perfect time to share my 7 favourite winter outfits.

Shake it Up and Try Something Different! #fakeituntilyoumakeit LINK UP

How many of us are guilty of sicking to the same-old, same-old?
Whether it's the shops we go to, or the type of books we read.
We are creatures of habit.

The problem with habit is that we can become stuck in a rut.
And the problem with being in a rut is that we can become stale, boring and eventually out of touch.

Being out of touch = Being OLD

Sheepskin and an Irish Aran Knit | Vintage Winter Style

Grey Vintage Sheepskin Coat & an Aran Wool Jumper | Fake Fabulous

Nothing keeps you quite as warm as a sheepskin coat.
Even the latest high-tech fabric (or the fluffiest of down) can't cut it, compared to a real shearling fleece.

However, even though I'm not a vegetarian I still feel a twinge of guilt wearing the skin of an animal.
Which is simply ridiculous when you consider I use leather handbags, not to mention all of my leather shoes and boots!

I feel like such a hypocrite.
