Where is this year going? How is it April already…
Who would have thought that the bomber jacket would do full circle in my life time… I remember these when I was younger when I was about 14/15 years old. I never did have one when I was younger but always wanted one as at that age I thought they were cool, stylish and fashionable. The 90’s gave us crop tops, bomber jackets and Victoria Beckham but it also gave us leggings with stirrups (#fail). Retro revivals can be a bit hit and miss, but like your mother always said, trends often come back around.
History: The flight jacket, bomber jacket, or bombardier jacket refers to a garment jacket type originally created for military pilots. They eventually became part of popular culture and apparel. Flight jackets have been popular with skinheads and scooterboys from the 1970’s onwards. In the early 2000’s, the jacket was popular casual wear in hip-hop fashion. The jacket has also caught on with several police departments across the United States for its sturdy design and heavy insulation.

Sorry I’m bit late with this post, but better late than never right?
I had an offer from Showcase insider to see an advanced screening of ‘How to be Single’ on Valentine’s day 14th Feb. So I went on a Galentine’s date with my friend Marie, as we are both single ladies..
The Plot – After four years of college, young Alice (Dakota Johnson) decides she needs a break from her long-term boyfriend Josh. Excited and ready for new challenges, the eager grad moves to New York to take a job as a paralegal. Helping her navigate her way through an unfamiliar city is Robin (Rebel Wilson), a fun-loving, wild co-worker who enjoys partying and one-night stands. With Robin as her freewheeling guide, Alice can now learn how to get free drinks, meet men and enjoy the single lifestyle.
So that’s February over and done with.. I’m hoping March is going to be a good month to me, and hopefully get a job as I have lots of plans & things I want to do…
