Quite frankly, the last few weeks (for reasons I will not go into on the inter-webs) have been one big fat emotional turd.

For the first time in a long time I felt like a small, helpless and slightly emotionally unstable little pea in the big scary shell of a world. 

At these times in life, and trust me, we all get them, it’s hard to see past that big black hole of helplessness.  

But here's a reminder: We always come out the other end, even if it is after a unknown period of time. 


To add to the various changes partaking in my life at the moment, the other day I also had the joyous experience *sense sarcasm here* of being told that something I fear is one of my biggest weaknesses is in fact very true (well, at least in this one persons opinion). 

GREAT. WELL ISN’T THAT JUST BLOODY MARVELLOUS!!!!!! 

I mean what is one mean’t to do when this happens? Have a little sob? Throw a pity party? Internally scream 'f*ck you' and march off motivated to prove them wrong?

Well….I did all of the above. 

And tell ya what, it did make me feel slightly better - for a few minutes anyway. 


However, it was not enough, so I took some inspiration from Bridget Jones and “chose vodka and Chaka Khan”.  

Although instead of vodka it was prosecco (DUH), but it was in fact Chaka IRL (yes, she’s still alive) as I went to see her at Henley Festival. 

However, I only knew those two songs from Bridget Jones, so as my cousin so eloquently put it, “Chaka Khan? More like sack of sh*t!” 

What can I say? Us Carders have a way with words.

I can only really explain my feelings these past few weeks as, "my confidence being repeatedly punched in the penis":

- Emotionally 
- Personally 
- Professionally 
Like srsly, what other category is there!?

Anyway....

Now I’ve succumbed to the fact that I’m going to have to ride the wave of uncertainty, with a undercurrent of self-doubt for a while. 

However, to quote the Biebs 'Mark My Words', I’m going to ride it out and get myself back up A$AP Rocky (hopefully, maybe.. please someone/ something give me a lifeline). 



So, this is just a little post to remind you (and myself) that if life is not going how you want it to atm, you just need to shake yourself down, and not get down about it, because girl, everyone has to ride a sh*t storm sometimes. 

Just remember: you will come back from this and BOSS IT AT LYFE.

My confidence just keeps on being punched in the penis

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get on board with my trackies. 

Cos man, do I love me a pair of trackies come rain or shine.

You’ve got to have a little chuckle at the evolution of the humble tracksuit, now in 2017 a pinstripe or popper variation are the trendiest choice. However, let’s have a recap of all the trackies we’ve donned in our time: 

  • Juicy Couture 
  • Von Dutch
  • Probably a nondescript one from MK One (sing it with me now,“ Fashion. Value. MK One!”)
  • Jack Wills 
  • Abercrombie and Fitch 
The cringe worthy list goes on....

The memory of a lime green A&F matching tracksuit I wore on my 14th birthday is still burn't into my memory....

It didn't help that I accessorised the in-your-face tracksuit with a foam neck brace, as the day before my birthday I had been at gym practise, attempted to do a roly poly and had majorly failed, instead managing to pull the biggest muscle in my neck. Nice one Sabs, nice one.


Although I have now completely given up on a career as a gymnast, I have not given up on my love for thy comfortable AF tracksuit bottoms.  

In 2017 I am rocking a pair of Adidas pinstripe bottoms that Sporty Spice would be proud of. 

On a side note: I saw Mel C at a festival the other week and OMG she was amazing. If I had to choose which Spice Girl I'd be now I'd totes change team from Baby to Sporty. *GASP*



As always when trends evolve there is always a little summin summin extra, 2017's trackie addition being fishnets.

Yes, I know, we've all got 'caught' in the fishnet trend this past year. Pun intended. 

It's gone from Kylie Jenner's Instagram to viral style staple and I for one am fully embracing it.

So by now *that* Gucci tee is pretty much ICONIC. The only downside is that it will set you back an eye-watering £320.

Yes, that's £320 smackers just for a T-shirt. I. CANT. EVEN.

However, the coveted tee has become the must-have item of 2017 and myself (just like everyone else) is fully obsessed with the Gucci aesthetic atm. So, I set out on a mission to discover a Gucci tee dupe for as cheap as poss. 

Spoiler alert: I SUCEEDED! In fact, I bossed it (even if I do say so myself). 

I found this rather fitting 'Iconic' tee on Pretty Little Thing for a tenner. BLOODY BARGAIN.




I love it so much that I have worn it both for a casual day look and for a sassy evening out. 

Day Look

I'm not even going to lie about it, this outfit was totally inspired by Spice World and I have no regrets. 

Apart from the fact that these cargo trousers are a bit too hot in this ever changing summer weather I don't care - I'm fully obsessed.

 I picked these babies up from a vintage shop for £15 last year but wasn't sure if I'd ever have the balls to whack them out. Oh plus, they are pretty mahooosive on me. However, all those years of ecommerce modelling has taught me all about clipping clothes, so yeah, these were sneakily held together at the back by a red food storage clip. Classy Sabs.



Night Look

Now unfortunately the top had already sold out in a medium, which is my usual go to size for my indecisive self. So, I was left with the choice of small or large. 

I went big, after all, go big or go home. At first I was like 'that was a big mistake. Huge' as I got it out of its packaging. 

However, then I had the magical thought that I could also wear it as a T-shirt dress. And who doesn't love a tee dress!?

In the PLT sale I had also picked myself up some red fishnets. Why? I have absolutely no idea but online shopping can be dangerous sometimes. So, my bank balance was lucky that I only added a pair of £2 tights to my basket, meanwhile saving about £200 worth of stuff to my wish list.
