Friday Fashionista :: { The Statement Jacket }

It’s the quickest way in the history of the world (in my opinion) to dress up jeans and a plain tee… It’s bright and fun and comes in all sorts of colours… And its cropped shape looks just fab over pretty much anything. So basically, (and I’m sure you’ll agree) they should really be considered an “essential item” he he. Anyway, scroll away my friend and enjoy this array of colourful delight! Love Nat xoxo Continue reading

Friday Fashionista :: { The Ankle Boot }

So how many pairs do you have? Flat, high heeled, low heeled, tan, black, coloured, buckled, laced, elasticized… the list goes on. Is it just me or in the past few years has the ankle boot become one of THE most fabulous parts of the wardrobe? Honestly! I don’t know what I did before them? What the heck did I wear every day in winter? Anyway, I’m glad they are here now… and as we are heading into some cooler weather, let’s have a little lookie at some fun ways we can style them. (And even for some of us who miiiiight just be heading to some warmer weather, good news, they work just as well with skirts and shorts!) Happy browsing guys and gals! X Continue reading

Friday Fashionista :: { Celebration… Time For A New Look }

Hi my friends 🙂 Guess what! I have officially been blogging for TWO WHOLE YEARS now! Shivers! That has gone so fast hey. Two years of The Writer’s Ink, 🙂 How amazing. I still remember emailing everyone a list of potential names, and The Writer’s Ink always was the favourite! Hooray :):) So I want to start by saying thank you so much for reading and following me…  So, I think a ‘two year anniversary’ totally calls for a ‘new look’ don’t you think? My pick… this gorgeous dress above. 

How has your week been guys? Are you looking forward to the weekend?! To be really honest, I have been better… lately I’ve been feeling super tired and fatigued with hardly any energy. It’s SO weird. Especially since I’ve changed my diet recently and have been eating SUUUUPER healthy (I mean… how many juices, smoothies, protein, veggies, salads, nuts, legumes can a girl eat? Not to mention loads of water)… I just can’t put my finger on it. There is, however, a possibility I mayyyyy have actually cut something out of my diet that I actually need… hmmm, so I’m looking into this. Have you ever done this? I’d love any advice anyone is offering… the more natural the better 😉 Anyway, God is my healer and he is sorting it out! 

So, back to the blog. Today, instead of doing a ‘fashion blog’ per se… I thought I’d announce some fun news! Huh hummmm…. very soon, this lil’ ole blog will be getting a fresh, ‘NEW LOOK’! The website planning has been going on for a while now, although I’ve been slightly frustrated because I can’t seem to pinpoint exactly what I want it to look like in the end. :-/ I’ve been looking around at other blogs and websites for ideas, but nothing looks right. As I was chatting with God about it all yesterday, telling him all my frustrations, Exodus 31 popped into my spirit. I looked it up and wrote in my journal. Suddenly I realised, there’s a reason I can’t find any designs out there that are what I’m looking for… It’s because nothing like it has ever been created before! And I’m a creator not a copycat. See look, here’s what happens when we partner with God and get creative…

Are you waiting to take a creative step at the moment? Maybe you’re slightly apprehensive or unsure of what steps to take, but one thing I know is for sure… when you do take that step, that leap of faith, he’s already equipped you with every thing you need to fly! So come on…

So that’s your project for the weekend okay? Stir up the creativity. Now with the new design, I’m going to be planning lots of new and pretty little surprises, but I need to ask YOU a question first! I’ve been thinking about all the different blog categories I’ve done over the past two years, and I’d absolutely love to know, which ones do YOU like best? Here are a few favourites to jog your memory… 🙂

1. { 5 MINUTE VACATION }

2. { CREATIVITY & INSPIRATION }

3. {FRIDAY FASHIONISTA }

4. { INSPIRATION, ENCOURAGEMENT & FAITH }

5. { BITS OF MY LIFE }

6. { INTERIOR LOVE }

7. { INSPIRED BY }

8. { ENCOURAGEMENT & FAITH }

9. { THINGS TO DO & TRAVEL TIPS }

So let’s celebrate and…

For all of us! Thank you so much for reading – I appreciate you very much! 

Let me know which categories have been your faves, and I will be sure to dream up some more fabulous treats in the coming weeks. 🙂 Have a great weekend.

Always cheering you on!

Love Nat xo

Friday Fashionista :: { The Trench }

Okay so I have wanted to feature this item on Friday Fashionista for aaaaaaaages and I keep forgetting! Introducing: The Trench Coat. In my opinion, Burberry is the favourite and it’s high on my wish list (can’t tell you how much I LOVE this one above). Perfect for this (slightly-freezing-feels-like-winter-already) fall weather we are well and truly in right now, the trench is the perfect over garment. Whether rocking it with jeans and boots, or over a dress and heels… any one of these beauties would be very welcome in my closet. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did putting it together! X

Friday Fashionista :: { All Wrapped Up }

Bonjour et heureux vendredi mes amis! Just practicing my français he he :):) Happy Friday my friends! So after this week’s freeeeeezing weather (yes I know I know it’s hardly freezing compared to a lot of the world but hey, it’s still pretty fresh!)… today’s request is one thing we simply CANNOT live without at the moment! Serving multiple purposes; firstly it’s a means of staying warm in cool weather, and secondly, (in my opinion), it’s the “quintessential fall and winter fashion accessory”. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m talking about The Scarf. So if you need some more “rug-up-and-look-fab” inspiration… here we go! Xx

























I hope this scarf display has inspired your wardrobe 🙂
And to finish off here’s Lenny sporting the largest scarf I’ve ever seen…
Happy Anzac Day my friends… I am marching with my Papa and remembering my Grandpa today. What a wonderful day this is. I love honouring these great men and women who fought so heroically for us. So if you see any of these faithful champions around town today why don’t you stop and tell them just how amazing they are. 🙂

See you next week lovelies…
