Weekend break to the sea side, to the city or to the country side is always what we need from time to time after a hard working week. Like the old proverb "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" over-working without taking a break or having no time for fun makes our lives monotonous and depressed. However, today many people seem too absorbed with their career/success or greediness to earn money more and more that they forgot to make time for themselves, for their families, friends and loved ones. To be honest, I was like that a few years ago but now I try my best to take my time off from work to spend time with my other-half, family and friends as much as possible, and trust me I feel much better. So if you feel that you have no time for your family & friends because you are too busy with your work, it's time to reconsider your priorities. Can't effort to take my loved ones for granted, life is too short. It may sound cliché, but I rather have my family and friends surrounded in a small cosy house than having a fat-bank account and being alone. Yeah so back to today's post, last weekend I visited Bournemouth (South-west England), one of my favourite places in UK, for the same reason as I mentioned earlier :) and I'm wearing a slip dress over a white tee and denim jacket with white trainers. The slip dress was indeed the hottest trend during the summer, but I'm certainly not yet over with it. Are you??? What better layering piece can we get other than a slip dress this Autumn, after all a great layering look is the ultimate style for fall. And I say a loose denim jacket over a slip dress and a white tee is a great layering way to start for a cool transitional outfit.

September means changing and preparing our wardrobes, by replacing those shorts, flats, summery tops and dresses to knit-wears, coats, bomber jackets and ankle boots. If you are not sure where to start with, this month I'll try my best to update at least one transitional outfit every week to give some inspirations. So, here is my second favourite fall transitional outfit. If you haven't seen my first outfit yet, check it out here Transitional Outfit No.1. Today I've chosen a straight girlfriend jeans, with an off-white ruffles top, a satin bomber jacket and a pair of ankle boots. We've seen enough of extra ruffles clothes and bomber jackets this spring/summer, but we are not-so-over with them and will be still seeing much more this fall. A great shoulder/cross-body bag and ankle boots are always a great idea for Autumn. They can easily go with most of your outfits from day/work to evening/party. Hope you guys like it! Thank you very much for stopping by my blog! Don't forget to leave me your feedback in the comment section.

When it comes to trendy affordable high street style, nothing beats better than H&M. I'm sure you agree with me no matter where you live. Forget about the shitty qualities you get sometimes for certain pieces, HM does make our lives much easier for many people like me who love fashion but are in a budget. For fall transitional outfit, I bought some great pieces from H&M, and this back lacing black top and a front pockets skirt are my favourites. So, you are going to see a lot more of me in this outfit this fall. Share us your favourite transitional outfits and brands in the comment section. By the way if you are fighting with spam comments, you should check my last post Stop Spam Comments. As much as I love affordable clothes, when it comes to bag I rather invest on a few high-end quality bags rather than many cheaper price-tag high-street bags. This bag is one of my current favourites Chanel bag, a limited edition one with many cute details. It is just the perfect go-to mini shoulder bag for many occasions. However, I have to be honest, I need to save up my all pennies for a few months without buying anything just to buy this bag :D But I would say, it's worth saving your penny for a Chanel Bag. :) Back Lacing Black Top: H&M (Similar), Skirt H&M, Bag CHANEL, Ankle Boots :OFFICE UK, Jewelries : Topshop Thank you very much for stopping by my blog.

Is it just me or you are facing the same issues?? W...T..F... is the most common words I've been using lately. Sorry that I needed to start my post this way. But the thing is... I'm such a pain on my ass when it comes to maintaining my blog. Since I started having my blog, I've been struggling however learning eventually (slowly I would say). For the last couple of months, I received more than 500 spam comments per day and I was tired removing them manually. So, I was forced to block the option to comment on my blog and stop updating new post for a while. Luckily I've managed to sort it out all by myself :) and I'm excited to share the good news to you guys today. It may sound silly for some people who are educated in this field, but I believe there are many fellow bloggers like me who would be very happy to find out this answer. So here it goes. Activate Akismet Plugin: Although Akismet comes pre-installed by default in current wordpress version, it needs to activate manually. If you are not sure what is Akismet, it is an anti-spam plugin that helps you prevent spam on your website. If it is not pre-installed to your wordpress, visit this link and follow the instructions to install and activate the plugin. I find the steps very easy to understand compared to other sites. How to Get Akismet API Key for Free?? Once you installed Akismet plugin, you need API key in order to activate the plugin. When I was first started checking about the Akismet, I didn't know that I can have the API Key for free, since the Akismet page doesn't show any option or button for free sign up, very cunning right??? But the truth is we can use it for free. Sorry WORDPRESS, I'm kinda broke and I prefer to go for the free option :D So here it is... Step 1: Once you installed the plugin, go to PLUGINS Column on the left-hand side of the dashboard and click activate as shown on the screenshot picture below. Step 2: It will take you directly to the Akismet.com website, where you can enter your API key manually or the option to get your API key. Click on "get your API key " button, which will take you to Akismet Plans and Pricing. Step 3: You will see the different plans and prices as shown below. Go ahead with the BASIC PLAN by clicking on Get Started Button. If you have haven't register yet, you need to sign up first. Step 4: Then, it will take you to the next page, where you need to enter your name/username and billing info and on the left corner side you can see the column that says "what is Akismet worth to you?", where you can move back the slider to £0.00. After that, click continue and VIOLA you will receive your API Key via email. It's that simple! I'm so relieved now that I don't have to sit for hours in front of my laptop just to get rid of spam comments. Please feel free to write me on the comment section if you have any questions or feedback. And hey, I would love to know how you guys are dealing with spam comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Hope you enjoy reading it. Love Ashon
