Short Cuts

She liked her with long hair so she cut it short…

-this is now stuck in my thoughts…

Switched up to the bob haircut and I am totally loving it! Probably one of my favourite looks thus far!

Jacket I got from Primark a while ago still my favourite. Sunnies from Asos; I have to say I love to shop online but hate waiting for my items to arrive… trousers by George (ASDA) Shoes by adidas, safe to say it’s my favourite sport line.

But hey! Happy new month, I was supposed to post this on February last week, but oh uh… blogging can wait… still balancing all the things outside the net and priorities. This snowy weather now does not help… can we skip to summer?

A Trip To London

Ahh London, my favourite place to be…


Never regretting living there for 10 years!!! It’s crazy how years go by so fast… it only feels like yesterday still. You can never forget all those long walks to certain places, faces you used to see everyday, and being a regular customer at your rather so old stores; and they do remember you once you visit some day… it’s a pretty darn good laugh!

Nowadays, whenever I plan to travel to London, it will have to be somewhere really nice… there are a few places that left spark in my heart while I was living there and I would always think of them as main choices to be heading to! This was Kensington, and what a better place to spend time inside Holland Park. If you’ve never been here, I happily recommend it as long as you’re a person who loves nature and exploring new things…

I have forever admitted that I love the outdoors… there are just so many things to explore, yet so much to capture in the memory! I think it’s safe to say that my ultimate passion after fashion, is photographing what mother earth has to offer us, see even more pictures from the trip on my art page on Instagram ( @chromabyrene )

Travel while you still can, life is all about having fun, cherishing good moments and keeping good memories through the pictures that we take.

Take more photos… X

Balancing Life

It feels so good to be back…

I’ve just come to realisation that the last time I posted on here, it was just a while ago, a little part of me inside, faints… I love to write, but as much as I want to share my updates and stories with you all, it isn’t happening as often as I thought it would the past few weeks… I’ve been tremendously busy… LOL

I promised to myself that through out the new year, I will make my times for everything more controllable and less stressful. It’s as important as health. I am not giving up on anything I want to work on… Don’t ever let your dreams go to sleep, keep them wide awake…

Happy Holidays to you all, thank you so much for keeping up with me and my blog.

Let’s cherish the last few days of 2017 and I hope we all make it!!!

A Rainy Day

Pick up the phone because Friday is calling…

So, this week said it will be raining for the whole of it… you know what they say; the weather changes your mood… let’s hope it won’t be as much now, because I have plans to photoshoot more outdoor outfits!

This is a complete George ( ASDA UK ) look, I love everything in the clothing section of this place! It all started when I moved close to it… long story short. My first place for the latest trends to when I get the time to, as I hardly ever lately… Yes, for some of us, we do need a whole day; literally, to get everything we need from a clothing store. LOL.

I love a simple outfit at times, or pop of colours from time to time, now or later. That George ( ASDA UK ) tracksuit explains my mood exactly for today’s look, bold, a little moody and a bit chilled out… But wait, isn’t it awesome how I can fit almost everything in that bag though? That bad boy is super convenient for everyday use, don’t judge me if you see me with it in all my outfits, I told you so… LOL.


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* ) 

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…




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. 

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




It’s Minimal Vibez 

Hi darlings, sorry I have gone for a while last, that’s like more than a month and less than two *sighs*. I am back and running now, not saying much on this post but enjoy the looks! ❤

Hope you all had an amazing weekend! Ready for this new *oh so long* week but less than you think? 😉 Cheer up! Let’s go!

Just a quick post, a bit of an update really, few of my fave outfits I did the past few weeks in my old red hair. I hope you like them, leave a comment of your favourite and how you would you style them. I love hearing those… 

Don’t forget, I have loads of more looks over my Instagram feed and facebook page, be sure to check them out, give us a like or follow if you haven’t already!

Flatter and Coffee

OKAY! Can we skip to summer a little faster yet? If you are a summer person, you can fully relate ( High five, if you were born during summer =} ) Always on mind whichever, every other season, I don’t care… I promised myself I wouldn’t change hair colour again, but what can I do, I am so colourful sometimes I feel like colours aren’t enough that I need more than that; crazy, weird, wild and free. Nobody cares if you feel good about something is because you love to! 😉

I love my bun buns, but I am definitely not about that bun life, they give me headache after a while… and that is why you will mainly see me with loose hair… lol

This month has been so crazy busy, I’ll tell you later…

Clothes and outfits keep me motivated, I love creating, and that means more inspiration for me and ore for you… 🙂 let me know what you think of this look on comments bellow!





That Extra Something

I always love the simple and elegant look, but I tend to throw something extra in there ( there is always something missing, I am not complete until I find it) so I throw it.

Wearing my signature bracelets ”buttonlets” from my new label SIMBACHELLE, similar styles will be available in my brand new Etsy shop from later on, if you are wanting to get them you can always contact me.Follow @simbachelle on instagram for the latest.

Those George leggings are totally adorable, I got them this week and they are still available online and instore (scroll at end of paragraph for the link ), their quality is wonderful. I should do a video haul on this brand… Honest opinion, I love all of their collections.

I had a great day today, hope everyone had an amazing weekend, now I am preparing for the new week with the thoughts of completing what’s left to do. It will be Valentine’s week and I will absolutely make more time to do the most important things.

What are your plans for Valentine’s, if any?
