A few favourite things… and a Hello!

August 25 2014

Faves 1 fave 2

Pssst! Notice anything different??

A brand new Blog Design! Woohoo!

I am so excited to bring you the new Shirley’s Wardrobe.
In the last months I’ve been working on making a few changes here and there, to be able to express my creativity more fluidly.
Shirley’s Wardrobe as you all know has been part of my life for a very long time, and it has evolved so much since the first day it begun.
It started off as an offshoot to my YouTube Channel, where I’d share little snippets of my life, photo diaries and such.
Today it is recognised along with my YouTube channel as a place where ladies (& some gents) come for inspiration,
from beauty to style, and a few smiles too (I hope!).

I couldn’t be happier with what it has evolved into, and I’m really looking forward to sharing more of my journey with you,
be it beauty obsessions, daily outfits, travel and even lifestyle bits.

So to kick off on this new space, I thought to share a few favourite things! It seems like I’ve been doing a lot of this lately, haha!
I recently featured them on my YouTube channel and thought to snap them up for the blog too!

Just to update you all on my office space, it’s now fully ready and I’m typing from my desk right now. Feels so… official!
All that’s missing now is one of those swingy chairs. I’ll look into getting one!

Ohhhh and I can’t forget to mention the important part my readers and followers have played in my journey,
and I hope you all stay as I carry on with this adventure!

Love always,



SHU UEMURA Eye Lash Curlers
