On the 19th of June I actually ventured out of Southampton and my full time job I recently got at Primark and headed off to the Bournemouth Food & Drink festival. It was my first time at the festival as well as my first time actually going to Bournemoth city and beach. The day was so sunny so it was perfect (even though my frail pale skin obviously burnt to a crisp as I forgot suncream).

We actually ended up decided to walk into the town from the station with no directions or Google maps and it was actually pretty fun and we went the sickest way there through this gorgeous bike trail. There was Jamaican, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, Gourmet cheese sandwiches (reminds me of the film Chef) and of course British food as well as different types of meats you’d not usually eat such as Boar or Deer for meat eaters.

Ended the day on a walk down to the beach and around the coast and it was so lovely, such a nice break from the harbour, rocks and city. I’ll have a vlog and outfit of the day up within the next few weeks when I get some free time.

You can see some different pictures on my instagram too here:

Horizon | End of University Year One

So this is my last post as a University fresher student! My first year at Southampton Solent has been the best year of my life so far, it’s been so good for me. Moving out, becoming independent, choosing the right course, becoming a Raven (who I’ve been announced as the Kit Coordinator/Treasurer for next year’s squad!), joining a student ran record-label to run the fashion side of things. I’ve found myself a lot more too, I’ve become much more confident. It’s been such a great year, I’ve met such a sick group of people that I feel like I really will keep in touch with for a long time.

Anyway, this outfit is just something I wore to go and shoot my final editorial photo shoot. Me and my model Nichole Goodall ended up taking a load of blog pictures too. She’s yet to make her blog but for now her instagram is:

Another outfit of mine that I modelled for my friend’s university project. This is most definitely my favourite, much more my style. I can’t wait for summer when I can just be running around in my Nike’s and white jeans etc I also didn’t realise how cold it was down south till I came back up to the midlands! It’s mad.

Talk soon,

It’s easter break! Which means I’m actually having time to blog again. My current 3 projects are almost finished, ready to sumbit to keep my easter free. I go on tour with the Ravens in Salou in just over a week, it’s mad how quickly it’s gone! I remember booking it in about october/november thinking I had absolutely ages. The first year of uni has absolutely flown by, I’m actually quite sad. I don’t want the rest of university to go this quickly, it’s been the best months of my life so far.

Anyways this was an outfit I threw together for a friends marketing project at university, it was a spacey/futuristic theme so I decided on my gun metal metallic dress and iridescent bag along with white and grey pieces.

The Young Ones

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 howΒ 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. β™₯


*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*Β

(Catch Up) Back at University & Health, Fitness Changes.

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 β™₯

Uni Modelling Snaps

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,Β 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!

I told you I was back into the swing of things! This was just what I was wearing the other day before me and Sophie went to shoot some editorials for our course! I feel like my style has changed a lot since coming to university, it’s pretty strang actually. Less sporty, more classic grungy.

Ps. Thanks for the jacket Sophie, love you 5ever

The Wolfpack / (Back Into Blogging Again)

<a href=””>HYPE!/LOOKBOOK.NU</a&gt;

It’s been far too long! I haven’t posted on here in what feels like forever – but finally after settling into uni and getting prepared for my first hand in I feel like I have the time to get back into this. I’ve missed it too much to just give it up. So me and Sophie from Set In Style are actually on the same course together at Southampton Solent University and we’ve asked eachother to model for our editorial trend pieces – we thought we may as well grab some blogging pictures while we were at it. I’m still trying to find nice locations for blogging around my area of Halls but we’re getting there!

Anyway – I’m literally loving my course at university and loving living down here in Southampton. I’ve settled in perfectly and it definitely feels like a second home to me. Getting back into the swing of things is feeling great.
