Zonin








Hoodie- Zara // Bomber Jacket - H&M (similar) // Trousers - Topshop // Shoes - Missguided // Choker - PrettyLittleThing

This hoodie is probably my favourite hoodie in my wardrobe as of right now and it was a spur purchase. That day I walked into Zara, I didn't intend on buying anything as I was only there to accompany someone else but as soon as I saw it, I had to get it. It's lightweight and super comfy but still retains a stylish quality to it. Hoodies are definitely one trend I'm happy to buy into. 

In other news, over the next two months I'm going to a few concerts I'm super excited about. I'll be seeing some of my favourite artists, namely: NAO, Chance the Rapper and Gallant. If you haven't heard of any of these people, I suggest you have a listen. They are also in my blog playlist at the side of my blog if you're curious. I may also do a concert lookbook. I know it's always a task trying to find something good to wear to a concert, especially in the winter because it might be cold when you're waiting in the line to get in and it will get really warm once you're inside vibing to the music and bumping into other people. If I don't do a lookbook, I may do vlogs so look out for videos on my youtube channel. Other than that, definitely follow me on my snapchat (maeve.wp) to get faster updates on what I'll be up to. 

Hope everyone has a great week! :)

We Don't Give A








Shirt - Zara // Bodysuit - Missguided // Sweatpants - Pettylittlething // Bag - A gift // Shoes - Vans

Hey lovelies, sorry for the grainy-looking photos. Note to self: the best time to have a shoot is not before the sun sets. So I’m turning 21 soon, as I’ve previously mentioned, on the 23rd to be precise. I know in my previous post I talked about starting afresh and working on 2017 resolutions but I think the main thing I and I think a lot of people need to focus on is self-love. I was hesitant about putting up this post and these pictures mainly because of the little side-boob action going on but I was comfortable enough to wear this outfit out and I love these baggy sweats so in the process of carrying out some self-love I said f**k it and decided to make this post.

 There are a lot of aspects to this idea of self-love and I think one of the more important aspects is cutting out toxic people from your life. My friends laugh at me for my tweets on cutting people out but it’s one thing that a lot of people underestimate. Sometimes it’s hard to spot those who are toxic but when you do, you need to distance yourself from them. They will try different things to manipulate or control you such as trying to make you feel bad about yourself. They will try and use you and diminish your value. They’re the people that are constantly giving off negative energy. You know those people that feel like the world is always against them and only have negative things to say? Yeah, those people are toxic. I’ve come across a few people like that and being around them can lead to them sort of rubbing off on you. I try to stay happy as much as possible and when I’m in a mood, I try to distance myself from people so that I don’t spread negative vibes. Staying in close proximity with people who are toxic can be damaging and will only serve to drag you down. Self-love is about valuing yourself and I’m starting to kind of embark on that journey. I think I’ve done a lot of growing this year in regards to that but I know I have digressed a bit due to different situations and people, so it’s time to get back on track.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my ramblings on self-love (you will probably see more of them) and I hope everyone has a great week :)

The Fall








Jacket - Zara // Sweatshirt - Vintage Puma (via Asos marketplace  - miss fortune) // Sweatpants - PrettyLittleThing // Shoes - Missguided 

Deciding to get your life together should not be something that one does only at the beginning of the new year. We only have a couple of months left of 2016 and I feel like it's time to set some pre-resolutions. The way I see it, if I get into a routine of trying to put my resolutions into effect then in January, trying to stick to my resolutions won't be so hard. I've just started  uni again and my 21st birthday is looming, which may be what has sparked my intention to change and to somewhat start afresh and better myself. My goal before 2017 is to get my work, body and mind right. So far I think I'm doing a pretty good job. Trying to get yourself right, I have found, means you may also have to be a little bit selfish. It means saying no to that night out when you have a 9am the next day and a ton of reading to catch up on. It means saying no to that expensive dinner when you're trying to save money.  It means saying no to that ex who claims to want to be friends when you know it can't work. It means spending more time on yourself and your wellbeing; not giving yourself so much and so easily to other people. This I've found hard in the past but sometimes it is necessary. Sometimes you've got to put yourself first in order to heal and grow. The leaves are changing and so can you.
