Throwback Thursday

I thought I would share a post from this time two years ago with you on Throwback Thursday. It was, itself, a throwback to my distant past... This is me 4 years ago when I wrote a blog called Vogue Busy Beauty and did a daily piece entitled 'What Am I Wearing?' - or WAIW. … Continue reading Throwback Thursday

Just before Fashion Friday on the Sophie's Voice Facebook page, here's a quick insight into my own wardrobe. Here's what I ended up wearing today... Blogging - it's not all about the glamour. It can be comfy too! Posted from WordPress for Android

Why I love being ‘low maintenance’…

This morning I got a little inspiration from the archives in the form of an article about Anna Karina. She was held up as an icon of New Wave style and I love the simplicity of her look. Less is more, everybody... well, less effort is more suitable for my lifestyle. In fact, that's probably … Continue reading Why I love being ‘low maintenance’…

Outfit Of The Day

As usual, when it comes to an outfit of the day, I'm giving two options because my day is going to be broken up into my duties as mother and my work. Firstly, my school run / domestic bliss outfit. I'm banking on the weather not being horrible again. That may, or - more likely … Continue reading Outfit Of The Day

Jay Miranda, a blogger I admire – Day 15 of the Blogtober Challenge

Without a doubt, the blogger who got me interested in writing Sophie's Voice most is Jay Miranda.

After my post on day 3 of the Blogtober Challenge - My Everyday Essentials - I realised that I'm in danger of wearing a uniform. That's okay, per se - but I want more.

Day 3 of the Blogtober Challenge – my everyday essentials

I honestly don't know where to start here - this title has certainly making me question my definition of the word 'essential'!

Starting at the beginning of day, I have to have my glasses - … Continue reading Day 3 of the Blogtober Challenge – my everyday essentials

Day 1 of the Blogtober Challenge – Five(ish) things about me

This month I'm participating in the Blogtober Challenge and will be posting daily so watch out for more regular updates. Today my challenge is 'Five - ten things about you'. I'm very much in favour of navel gazing if there's a self-improvement angle involved - otherwise, I have a tendency to just self-indulge. This first … Continue reading Day 1 of the Blogtober Challenge – Five(ish) things about me

Good evening, Mr Bond – I’ve been expecting you…since I was 17 years old.

I'm going to begin this post with a confession - I love Bond films. All of them. Obviously, some are better than others - and one of my top three is considered a bit ridiculous now - Thunderball - but I'm not fussy on a rainy Saturday or Sunday afternoon. I love everything about them … Continue reading Good evening, Mr Bond – I’ve been expecting you…since I was 17 years old.

Where can 90s girls look to for a little inspiration?

Two things I haven't dropped from the 90s - a love of a Chanel Rough Noir-style scab red nail polish colour and a deep desire to emulate everything that Drew Barrymore ever does, trendwise.   If you don't believe me on that last point, check out the Style Inspirations board on the Sophie's Voice Pinterest … Continue reading Where can 90s girls look to for a little inspiration?
