I once uploaded this post on my birthday in 2018, but it got deleted along with my old blog posts. However, thanks to the downtime I have as a result of the lockdown/quarantine, here’s my first re-post 😊.
In this post, I’m wearing one of my favourite Topshop dresses of all time (I’ve had it since my uni days). Also, I recently featured this dress in an earlier blog post (https://mignolly.com/2020/02/01/that-monochrome-moment/). Here, it’s styled with silver accessories and a rose-gold purse. I also love putting my hair up in a bun for dressy occasions. It’s the perfect look for weddings, dinners and parties in general.
My original post was about a celebration of life and I’m glad that aspect of my life hasn’t changed much; I’m just learning to celebrate life differently these days. Gratitude has to be one of the most important things to remember now – being able to still live a good life despite everything happening around the world at the moment.
Things might be difficult right now with COVID-19 forcing us into lockdown and quarantine, however, let’s remember to keep our focus on the positive and celebrate life, love and health.
I’m sure we’re desperate to get back out there and explore the world, so hang in there and know that you’re not alone. We’re all in this together! (insert High School Musical OST 😊)
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.

Thanks for reading my post 😊
Love always, Mignolly
