1. Mondazzee seem so long some times so keeping myself entertained with a little cheeky work selfie. Loving my New Look fully jumper on these chillier days recently, it’s definitely a cozy winter must have. I’ve also got on my fave Top Shop Jamie jeans, just wishing I had every Top Shop jean possible! I love a little OOTD post. 2. Decided to switch up my hair to start off the year and loving it more and more everyday! Loving my journey to silver-grey hair, I have a slight obsession. 3. It’s always a good time for tea time, waking up an hour earlier to live an hour more, loving my tea sesh by the waterside in the mornings before I make my way to work. 4. I’m always with my little Prince and I’m just jealous he’s more photogenic then I am really.

5. “I own too much black – said no one ever!” 6. My obsession with wishbones and moons has me loving my new jewels. I love layering these pieces together. 7. So I’ve been wanting a clothes rack in my room for far too long now! Having one in my flat away for so long made me love having one so it was a must, and finding the perfect one just topped my excitement (so sad I know)! It’s a great way to stay organized and plan outfits for the week or hang up some of my favorites. Plus it just looks too cute and I love my Paris pics above to add a little matching character. 8. I’ve got some of my favorites in this OOTD. My Timbs, Top Shop Joni jeans, Gap plaid shirt, New Look crop top and leather jacket and a bit of a posy mcposerson mirror pose of course!

This is me Ci Ci…

So, you want to know a little bit more about me? Let’s do this!

“Born + raised” in Bermuda by some pretty kick ass parents and a pretty incredible family surrounding me for all of my childhood. I was that kid that had to be involved in everything as much as I could and my parents forever supported my decisions no matter how extreme or stupid they were and I can’t describe how truly grateful I am for all they did for me or allowed me to do. From putting me in the best education system, here in Bermuda, at Bermuda High School. An all-girls school, I have to admit at the time I wasn’t too fond of the idea of an all-girls school, but I am able to look back now and honestly say I wouldn’t have it any other way. I was a part of so many school sports and other activities – one of which was Bermuda gymnastics team and I think it was one of the things that really shaped who I am today. It taught me true discipline, how to work hard to achieve my goals, how important a healthy lifestyle is, teamwork, creativity, how important it is to be unique and that your mind, body and soul is fully capable of achieving almost anything!

Fast forward a little, after studies abroad in the UK and receiving an honors degree, being able to do some traveling around the world with friends and family gaining so much exposure to new cultures and seeing remarkable places. Now returned home, landing the most incredible job I could ever ask for, managing and creating content for the top local boutique in Bermuda, Atelerie. Working in fashion felt like the most natural thing for me and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else really and here I am today!

All caught up, I now aspire to do all that I do now at the best ability I can (no short cuts allowed) and with so much room to still grow and learn from everything I am exposed to both at work and from my surroundings. I am forever inspired by where I live and the things I do, people I work with and for, the brands I am exposed to and the opportunities I am given. They all add up to the some of the reasons I started this little space on the internet and why you are here readying this right now! A place to express my creativity and love for all things ascetically pleasing, a space to share my love for fashion and what I do, a tiny corner of the internet that is all mine and open to all to see what it’s like to in the world of Ci Ci – that’s me!
