Houndstooth

One of my favourite garments in fashion is the houndstooth pattern, prints and or knitted work of it. It’s amazing how a work of a garment can make you feel.

I can’t remember the last time I felt like this, before eventually, and finally finding the name of this pattern 5 years ago. ( How on earth time flies like that… *sigh* )Β 

Many people do not know pattern names so I think that, it’s always a great thing to do your research into items you need the answers to; It is actually called the Dogtooth in the English term. Houndstooth in other cases… so if you are looking into specific things always refer it in its all different names… Check out our awesome feed, that I am part of as one of the teams over Instagram here

I originally bought this coat from Amazon, a few years back, and yes that’s one of my favourite online places to shop at… in case you were wondering.

The top and leggings I am wearing down there, are from Primark. Most of the leggings that I buy are from there, I never look into buying a very high priced legging as I can even make my own but sometimes there isn’t enough time but can be balanced either way.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! Thank you for being here…

HELLO OCTOBER!

Hi darlings! How are we all doing? I trust that you are all well!

October is in! YAY! Where did the year go though? I was expecting it to be longer. LOL. I can’t believe how 2017 is nearly over. In less than 2 months we’ll all be welcoming 2018.

I am saying goodbye to blue hair for good… I have reached to the point where I got tired of bright and bold hairstyles. There isn’t any other colour left to do… So I said to myself, this is it! Let’s go back to nomral boring and never out of style hair looks…. oh well! Life!

I must say I have fairly accomplished many, many, things throughout this whole year; more than what I expected to achieve, and it is only the beginning… The hardest part is not giving up on the things I love the most and keeping believing in myself that I have the power to achieve everything I have ever wanted in time. All it takes hard work, consinstency and motivation around me. If you cannot find motivation ask, or look for one. It helps so much and life is less of a stressful mess!

Let’s get ready so the weekend can arrive! =)

HELLO BLUE!

Back to the blue tonez…

wp-image-887402146

If you’ve been following my journey for a long while, then you must already know, I like to change the colour of my hair quite often as I get bored easily of hairstyles, maybe one day it will stop, but until then, stay tuned for more inspiring styles! πŸ˜‰ Check out this article I posted about a very more previous hairstyle with a bit of the blue here!

Β I am an artist. I just love bright, eye-popping colours, especially in the hairstyle sector. Still thinking about a colour I haven’t done yet but running out of ideas… People who know me well, they go with the same usual line ”You’ve done all the colours but what about Pink?”; like I always say, the colour ”Pink” is not really for me, neither in clothes nor in hair, even as a little girl my mum wouldn’t dress me up with much pink, (maybe that’s why I don’t like to wear it…) I always had a choice of colour, mainly alone, in my childhood and just the rest of the accessories my mum would be the one to pick! The greatest stylist ever! Thank you mama, if you’re reading this! ❀

Β I am absolutely in love with this Atlantic Blue hair, sorry darlings, apparently this hair is not in stock online to share it with you. I do however make my own wigs, they are time consuming… LOL.

OH SO MINIMAL!

Hi darlings, I hope everyone is enjoying the week so far! I can’t believe how fast August is going by, one more week to enjoy the vibe, that means end of summer real soon… ah the joys!

I have been so in love with colour for so long, that I somehow forgotten how cute it is, being minimal yet still bold at the same time, without having to worry about going wrong with colours, as the so popular saying “you ever go wrong with black and white”. I have always agreed to the fact! I now have come to a realisation that I didn’t quite appreciate the colour black and white or on their own. There is just something so pure and honest about those colours! Just like life, just because your day isn’t perfect doesn’t mean your life is ruined nor if you are wearing black or white clothes is always a bad, plain or a sad thing.Β 

Another week going great; not perfect ever! My clothing brand page on Instagram is now back and running, @simbachelle. We are not quite big yet but time for sure will show as more designs coming up this winter… so go ahead and give the page a follow and support it, if you like. Much appreciated! I had an Etsy online shop in the past, someone suggested I should keep; but shall I bring it back, what do you think? It’s handmade/machine after all… LOL

BIG HAIR, CUTE CURLS & A LIL’ PERSONA’

Another amazing week has just flown by… So, after going totally bald, and re-growing my hair, looking after my hair health, that rather grow quite fast I would say now; decided to finally fix up one of my wigs, cut it, wash it and style it, and girl, this beauty is fire!!! ( at least in my eyes… ) There is always so much fun! I like to believe that I am not that much of the girly girl, but people who know me well think otherwise, LOL Well you could say that yourself… but as long as I know myself, I love glitters, I hate pink ( I just don’t wear it, there is something I don’t like about it and I don’t know what, but I like to see others wear it, weird, I know! Not my cup of tea… ) I love doing my nails putting on wigs or extensions when I have my hair grown at a particular length, I do not wear make-up unless it is lipstick or an eyeliner, I don’t draw on my eyebrows, I am keeping it all healthy and nice. Pretty much that sums up a few things about my personality… =)

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! Where are you located in the globe? Is it nice and sunny? I hate this weather, although I am so over with it! Typical British weather, if you know, you know…

A VINTAGE MEMORY

 

“When you buy a piece of vintage clothing you’re not just buying the fabric and thread – you’re buying a piece of someone’s past… ” – A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff

Hi darlings, happy new month, happy new week! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

The other day I saw this beautiful old woman. She looked about early 70s, had well looked after, blond hair in a bob style with a pale pink floral pin; she looked so focused at the boutique in front of her. I was standing just a few steps ahead wearing my sunglasses awaiting my friend and I couldn’t help but noticed the pearl earrings she was wearing, it had some wonderful bronze pink-like bold flowers around it… I then remembered my nan; I called her my nan, it was my grandfather’s friend. She looked after me loads, when my mother was at work; Was about 73 at the time, sadly passed away, years ago. She was very wise and one of the poshest person I ever knew, probably will ever know!

Everyday she had to make sure her hair was lush, weekly appointments to her best friend’s house saloon to get a perm and fresh blond colour for her hair, best hairdresser in the neighbourhood at that time. Always red lipstick on her lips. Oh my! Her jewellery drawer was exquisite such vintage pieces, pearls, silver, bronze and gold…; like I am one of those peoples that will look at something, try to visualize and study the way it’s made, where the artist was inspired by and all that from a really young age! Often I would go to her bedroom and open that specific drawer to just have a glance, admire the jewels and basically study them. There was this one time that she caught me wearing one of her earrings ( similar to the ones the old lady had ) she said to me, in Greek ”wait till you get older, you will not find these” LOL. She knew something; she spent a fortune on these during her youth, did I mention she was a model? A really beautiful one but still beautiful with wrinkles on her skin after years. Oh, all the fun times we had… I did, in fact, learn a few important things about life and style from her, which is probably where the rest of my fashion taste is coming from, that has really grown out of me and trust me it took a little while to realise that…!

And that’s the end of the story I guess, well that was intense… I really got carried away for a bit there. Coming back to that old lady, her outfit was just stunning, she had that nice purple and blue floral maxi skirt and cute shoes with flowers on them, I had to compliment her floral look! I was wondering how old her earrings were so I thought to get closer to ask, why not!? She told me ”darling, they’re as old as your age” and then we laughed, her response was sweet!

It’s really hard to find jewellery like that nowadays, these are a limited edition, really classic pieces, just like the rare vintage clothing. And that is why I dedicate this look to that classic era. Enjoy!

There is so much to explore, enjoy life!

JULY MΓ©MOIR

Well summer is almost ending… Trees are still green, the sea will always be blue…Β 

Dedicating this post to the beautiful July…Β 


It’s been a while since I shared the love of my other side… I did however say that my photography blog would be back a few weeks ago, (said and never done) LOL but unfortunately my laptop broke down on me, and most of us know how tough it is to do various of things on your smartphone or whatever… especially if you are a really social person like my guilty self here… LOL. Safe to say that I was busy on and off, hopefully this way sums it up and you can finally catch up with all my artwork.

”And finally got a new PC, I don’t trust laptops anymore…” and that’s what she said…

As of now, I am currently updating my facebook art blog and it should be back live in less than 2 weeks. I am so happy to share this with you! It’s one of those things I enjoy doing most other than fashion and it is a huge part of my life, as you can probably already tell…Β  it’s a plus if you know me in person! πŸ™‚

Be happy and take more photos, capture those special moments because they can remind you so many memories to smile and think about!Β 

Check out a few pictures I took during the last week of July, we did have a few beautiful sunsets that I am so glad I captured them, nature never fails to amaze me, never underestimate mother earth!

July Insta-Highlights

Hi darlings! I hope you all enjoying the weekend! Oh my! I cannot believe how quickly, summer is ending, can we rewind!? If only… LOL.

July, I would say was one of the busiest months I faced thus far, which is why I felt like it ended quickly, as I wasn’t counting the days that went by! But, what’s important, is that I realised and learned about a lot of things, how to get better at what I do and how to do better in everyday life, like my daily routines and all that stuff! Met some really cool new people from the social media too! Everyday is a new day to learn something, trying on new things and enjoying what life has got to offer. A great thing to do at all times!

Have you stopped by my Instagram feed yet? If not, go check it out! Daily posts of my looks and inspiring moments! πŸ™‚ Come say hi!

How are you spending the last month of Summer?Β
