My Original Style Icon - A Tribute


This week I lost one of the most precious people in my life - My beloved Grandmother.
I am at a loss for words to even remotely describe the heartbreak that I am feeling at this present moment. 
I am sure you will all understand that at this difficult time, I am finding it hard to comprehend returning to normal life - getting dressed up, going out and about, blogging etc. so I wanted to leave this tribute to my very special friend until she hopefully grants me the strength to return.
My Grandma was the epitome of style and class - a true lady! She always dressed to perfection and from I was a very small child she encouraged in me, a love of fashion and style.
In the above photo you can see herself and my Grandfather, whom I know she is now reunited with in happiness - they were indeed a very stylish couple and to me, this picture looks like a paparazzi shot of two movie stars. I can see so much of myself in her as she, along with my beloved Mother, have made me the person I am today. I hope that throughout her life and beyond I have always and will always make her very proud. 
I cannot thank everyone of you enough for your help, support, comments, calls, visits etc. at this very sore time in my life. To find a positive in a very, very negative situation, it has shown me the true beauty in human nature and made me realise how blessed I am to have such a wonderful family and some truly incredible friends. Anyone that knew me, knew the very special bond that we shared - a bond that went much deeper than simply "Granddaughter and Grandmother" and it was such a pleasure and an honour to have shared my life, my friendship and my love with her.
I am so grateful to have been with my Grandma when she passed away and get the chance to tell her how much she meant to me. 
I am more than proud to be able to call this amazing woman my role model, my best friend and my Angel.
