About a week or so ago, I had to style and model for a photo shoot for my step sister, who is a 3rd year Fashion Graphics student at the same university as me. The concept was to style everday outfits based on how a Dr Martens fan would. I myself am one so this was easy enough for me! I thought I’d share two of the looks with you and this is the first one.
Over the weekend I’ve had Tom down at Southampton with me and I’ve had a lovely time, including the biggest game of our American Football team’s season – Team Solent Redhawks vs. University of Southampton Stags. We won in a 22-0 great victory! I’ve popped some pictures in for you here
Thank You to Thomas for these lovely pictures from the game. ♥
*Also I’d just like to say I’m not advertising alcohol to all of my readers, it was simply a prop for the photoshoot*
Long break between posts again, I know I’m sorry! But, I’ve been back at University for a few weeks now and have been getting into the routine of things again. It’s been pretty hectic! Taking on another 3 new assignments, getting back into Game Days, I do love being busy but, once again my blogging has taken a hit during that time!
I just wanted to talk about how I’ve been the past few months, the main change has become since I joined the Solent Ravens cheerleading squad (I’m just on the Game Day team this year). Since I started cheering, my health has become better, I’m much more fit, more toned and much more flexible! All this adding up has made my self-confidence rocket and it’s incredible. I’ve had a steady gym time table, healthier diet and have been stretching nearly every night for about two months, the result of this has been so good to me. On that note – I wasn’t even able to touch the floor with my finger tips when I began, now I can reach back and almost pull a scale which is a huge thing for me.
This was just a quick little catchup before bed again but I’m really enjoying myself at the moment. Loves ♥
This is just going to be a general chit-chatty sort of post as I’m back home for Christmas now for a few weeks! I got back on the 12th from down Southampton and I’m realising how much I miss being down there. It’s so strange not seeing my flat every day and going to university, doing student things. Also being close to everything! Back home in my little village I’m so isolated from everywhere which sucks. But it’s given me a chance to finish off my last two assignments for this semester which is a huge relief, I’ve also been back working at my local Next store which is nice to see all my friends and get into some stuff that I’m familiar with.
Anyways, this post was just going to be showing you some previews of some modelling I did for a friend of mine for our Styling Fundamentals project. I’ve become much more confident in front of the camera since started the course at Solent and it’s helped me in other ways too!
Talk soon, mwah
I’ve been meaning to write up this post for a long while! However, it’s been freshers fortnight at university and I feel like I’ve just been so busy and had no time to just sit and blog. As I said a few posts back, I’ve decided to hand in the St Moriz and tanning mitts. I was sick of feeling like I had to look like someone else, the population’s idea of beauty, not my own. All shades of skin are beautiful. It’s been hard not to go straight back to it, looking ill on nights out with groups of my uni girls and practically glowing was difficult at first (my best uni friend is so tanned which doesn’t help!) but now I’ve gotten used to it I feel so much more myself. I’m really settling into my own skin since moving down here. I also got my tattoo that I designed to cover up a hard past and start fresh and all I’ve had is compliments which has boosted my confidence of my drawing skills that I haven’t used in so long too.
Uni’s going amazing as well, my course is incredible and just what I want/where I want to be at. We’re in the middle of planning our 2nd shoot now. I modelled last week for my group which was strange as all I’m used to is modelling in front of my boyfriend or a fellow blogger for a standard outfit post. It’s made me feel a lot more confident being asked by two more people to model for their own shoots!
All in all I’m finally becoming the most myself I’ve ever been and have stopped trying to be society’s idea of perfect and I’ve never felt more self confident and comfortable! Talk soon ♥
