I’m Back!

Hello Lovely Readers,

I’m back! No seriously, I am! I am back in business.

It has been a long time coming and while I have previously ‘threatened’ several comebacks; I feel now is the perfect time to breathe new life into UptownTwirl; build my business; and lead my best, most stylish life yet.

If someone had said to me ‘pre-Maxie’, I would make less than a handful of posts on UptownTwirl in 2013 I would have thought them completely and utterly mad. ‘Pre-Maxie’ I had visions of my beautiful angel sleeping peacefully in his bassinet next to me while I created extraordinary content and took my business to new heights. It was going to be my most productive year yet.

So what happened?

To be brutally honest I was exhausted. Not just the sleep deprived baby exhaustion everyone tells you about {not that you really listen until it happens to you} but more so tired and weary from years of burning the midnight oil {on business; on blogging; on side projects; on personal projects; on client projects; on light bulb moments; etc; etc; etc}. I didn’t know where it was all going and if that was somewhere I wanted to end up anyway.

So what have I been doing this last year?…

I have immersed myself in all the joys, the milestones, the challenges {and quite often the tears} this new chapter of my life brought me. It has been the most thought-provoking yet rewarding and undoubtedly best experience of my life. Beside my usual daily intake of Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, etc; I added baby and parenting articles to the mix. So if you happen to have any questions about infant sleep {or lack thereof} I will probably be able to give you a multitude of answers and explanations.

And while I don’t want to make unrealistic promises about posting daily and give general lip service about how I have turned a corner and am back on my blogging A-game {which I am just so you know!}; but I do just want to say you will be seeing a lot more of me again. And I am so excited to be back.

So, without further ado I give you my first article back (it’s above this post or you can click here}. I hope you enjoy.

Love & kisses

Cara xo

p.s. I’ve missed you.

What I Wore Today…

Ok I will admit it, I have a stripe obsession. Classic, elegant and with a chic minimalism – the iconic striped shirt is a wardrobe must-have.

I have several striped shirts (skirts and dresses!) in various colours in my closet. This Witchery white shirt with green stripes is comfortable yet effortlessly polished – throw it on and go! I am also currently in love with cat-eye sunglasses! The lenses exude that Old-Hollywood glamour and movie-star appeal. Just looking at them makes me want to jet-set off to a far away location.

Today I had a wonderful day of relaxation, family and fun. I wore my Witchery striped top with my Stella McCartney for Target skirt; Oroton cat-eye sunglasses; and Prada handbag. I started off the morning by having my nails done; before a lovely lunch with my family; and movie night at home with my husband… a gorgeous day xx

I hope you all had a wonderful day! xx

New Artwork Sneak Peek

I am very pleased to announce a series of new artworks will be launched on CaraGray.com over the next few weeks. Here is a sneak peek at the first piece…

While each of the artworks will be more simplistic than my ‘Woman Of Paris’ collection; the focus is still to inspire women to become the leading lady in their own lives.

Each of the artworks will be available to purchase as a print soon. I will also be posting other artwork previews over the next week, so please stay posted.

I hope you all have a truly wonderful Easter Long Weekend!

Love Cara xx

p.s. I cannot wait to hear what you think!
