A date night outfit in collaboration with Blue Vanilla Clothing - It's date night, date night whoop, whoop! 

Yay for date night and it always equals a hot outfit, whether it's with your girls or the boyfriend. With Valentines coming up too I believe there couldn't be a better time to discuss everything love related - in case you also need some sexy lingerie inspo too, check this post out: The Valentine's Lingerie Edit.


So, where will I be you wonder? Well, my boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Rome, the capital of the country where Gucci came alive and where all my savings will magically disappear. I am super excited to relax for a week and to experience a new culture. Rome has also been on my 'European Capital' list for a while now so it's pretty awesome to finally tick that one off too.

I actually recently went to Paris for my birthday and now I'm off to Rome for Valentines? I must be one hell of an amazing girlfriend to be deserving all the trips (pads on the back, also super lame to be writing that, but who cares). Anyways, this will actually be our fourth country we are visiting together since the start of our relationship, which is really quite exciting.

But love hasn't always been that easy, I'm sure we've all been in an unhealthy relationship at least once in our lives. Some realise sooner and then there are people like me who take a bit longer, but at the end of the day all that matters is the lessons it has taught us. The lessons to remember that life is short and that we shouldn't waste our precious time on people who clearly don't deserve it and that having one amazing friend is better than any 'girl squad'.
It might be a cliche, but what doesn't kill us, makes us stronger.

I have always seen it as an embarrassment to admit that I had spent three years of my life in a very unhealthy relationship. But why? There really is nothing to be ashamed of and it's so easy to fall into the traps of a liar, manipulator and all-around charming guy who always knew what to say.  Unfortunately, my pink love goggles made me believe it's okay to be treated like that. But we all know it's not; we shouldn't be made to feel ugly, fat or not good enough.
It took me three years to realise and once I did, I immediately took my life back. I ended the relationship and never looked back. I turned into my old self again, a very open and happy person who loves to dress up nicely. I no longer had to worry about what my so-called 'boyfriend' would say about my look and had to justify myself for wearing clothes that show off my figure. I was myself again, I was happy again and I finally felt free again.

Don't be like me and hide what's really going on by making them the angel and yourself the bad person. Be honest to yourself and to others. No one deserves to be in a relationship with someone who doesn't treat you like the Queen you are.

The Silver Metallic Bardot Top from Blue Vanilla

As it's a special occasion I wanted to look extra special and decided to go all out and obviously purchase new outfits, like how can I not? I came across this amazing Bardot top in the cosiest fabric ever and in a super gorgeous metallic tone. I personally really love the metallic tone of the top which makes it so easy to dress up, but it can also be dressed down with a pair of sneakers too. As you all know I'm not a sneaker kinda girl anyway, so for me, it's only gonna be a heel combo. So I will obviously be rocking my heels on holiday too when strolling through the cute streets of Rome. FYI, eating my body weight in Gelato isn't going to be an option, it's a necessity. 

However, to make the outfit date night worthy I decided for a bolder makeup look by adding some darker eyeshadow and chose a lipstick in a gorgeous red tone. This is the kinda outfit I would wear any day when going for drinks or food, it's comfortable, really suits me and looks chic whilst not overdoing it.

  3. Love that you opened up about your past relationship! I wonder if it beared any semblance to the Empath Narcissist relationship dynamic? As an Empath myself, I always have to be careful about that. Loving that top! Beautiful date night look!
