Winter Look, CSF Style

Hey a new post and it's an outfit! I know it's been a long time since I've shared an outfit post here on the blog.  Not much to blog about when you spend most of your days in sweats and leggings!  So far that's how my year has started off, between being sick, not working and going back to the gym...nothing but tees and stretchy pants for me!

Well Hello There...2016!

Hello 2016!  So as you may have noticed, I've been a bit MIA on the blog.  I took an unintentional and unplanned blogging break. Honestly I was just feeling very unmotivated and uninspired to blog about anything.  This year will be my 7th year of blogging and I've been questioning my self if I should continue or move on with other ventures.  I really haven't decided what is to become of Cid Style File, but I will definitely keep you posted. In the mean time if you want to see whats going on with me, I am still very much active on Instagram and recently joined Snapchat.

2016, happy new year, cid style file, blogger, MIA

I've been having lots of fun sharing more of the real me on Snapchat.  Not to say I haven't been myself here on the blog, it just seems easier to be more natural, unfiltered and uncensored on Snapchat.  So if you are interested on seeing that side of me go to my Snapchat.  Find me under the same name CidStyleFile, where I share some outfits, beauty, what I cook, where I go and just my everyday shenanigans! This is not a goodbye, but just an update. I've started off the year as a busy bee, redecorating my loft.  I may share some pics and show you what I have done when its completed.  For now lets reconnect on Instagram and Snapchat, come say hi!  I will return soon with a more formal and proper blog post. 

Hope your 2016 has started off with love, laughter and joy!

Hello Adele, Welcome Back...How I Miss You!

Adele's new single is finally here, she is definitely a voice for a generation of women. I love her deep soulful voice and the power she has with it. Here is her latest song and video "Hello". I also shared what she has to say about this new album and what it means to her. Adele is definitely wise beyond her young 25 years. This resonates with me at 40, I am ready to say "Hello" to who I really am and the woman I want to be. So happy for Adele for coming to this discovering at 25, some of us took a little longer, but glad we are both there!

What do you think about this new song and video?


When I was 7, I wanted to be 8. When I was 8, I wanted to be 12. When I turned 12 I just wanted to be 18. Then after that I stopped wanting to be older. Now I’m ticking 16-24 boxes just to see if I can blag it! I feel like I’ve spent my whole life so far wishing it away. Always wishing I was older, wishing I was somewhere else, wishing I could remember and wishing I could forget too. Wishing I hadn’t ruined so many good things because I was scared or bored. Wishing I wasn’t so matter of fact all the time. Wishing I’d gotten to know my great grandmother more, and wishing I didn’t know myself so well, because it means I always know what’s going to happen in the end. Wishing I hadn’t cut my hair off, wishing I was 5’7”. Wishing I’d waited and wishing I’d hurried up as well.
My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done. Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully-fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk. I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back. When I was in it I wanted out! So typical. I’m on about being a teenager: sitting around and chatting shit, not caring about the future because it didn’t matter then like it does now. The ability to be flippant about everything and there be no consequences. Even following and breaking rules… is better than making the rules.
25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.
