It feels like forever since I’ve posted! It’s been mad since Thursday, moving into university and all that. It’s hard now and again, missing home and people etc. but I definitely love it here. My flat’s awesome too – so glad there’s no awkwardness and noone that doesn’t get on it makes it so much more comfortable.

This was just an outfit I shot before moving down, we’re on the hunt for some nice backdrops in the city and we will get back to it! It’s so hard to get stuff done during Freshers there is so much going on, all of the time.  The second day in Uni, we set up our first photoshoot and I was model. The theme was white and we decided on a slicked back androgynous look inspired by the Alexander Wang Winchester Shirt. We stuck with a simple white skirt and heavy Dr Martens.

NYFW SS15 Favourites

aw10 chadwick bell10 jonathan simkhai4 milly5 nonoo7 organic by j p 2 osklen 4 pd5 vv13 zj10
All pictures sourced from http://www.vogue.co.uk/fashion/spring-summer-2015/ready-to-wear

1. Alexander Wang
Of course I loved every single piece of Alexander Wang’s SS15 collection, so many incredible tailored and sports luxe pieces. It was tough to pick a favourite but I had to go for this classic white and green mesh look.

1. Chadwick Bell
Wow. That’s all I can say about this designer I recently found out about. Incredible slouchy yet tailored, minimal looks. So much love!

3. Misha NoNoo
I absolutely love this sleeveless (but sleeves tied up) shirt dress. It is absolutely amazing, the things I would do to own it are endless! I loved this ladies show, there were so many gorgeous white pieces that I obviously began to drool over the second I saw them all!

4.Organic by John Patrick
Shirts, slouchy, sheer – need I say more?

5. Osklen
That clear shirt underneath the khaki one is incredible! It’s added so much to this outfit even though it’s mostly hidden. Love.

6. Porsche Design
Beautiful sleek cars, beautiful sleek clothes.

7. Versace

As my favourite-all around designer. Versace has done it again with an amazing collection. This dress, I can’t even find the words! I adore this black and white pattern look they’ve gone for on a few of their pieces from the collection – there’s a beautiful two piece I really like too.

8. Zoe Jordan
In case you don’t know just yet – I may be slightly obsessed with marble. It always looks so pretty and creative but it always suits my style as most marble is grey, black or white. I need this two piece in my life – or at least more likely a high street look a like in the near future (pls).

So, these have just been my 10 favourite looks/collections from NYFW SS15. You can expect the same from the currently happening LFW too! I haven’t done a fashion reporting sort of post in a long, long time and I realised typing this up that I have really missed it. While at university these posts will probably be a lot more often.

Ten Tonne Skeleton & Embracing the Pale

DSC_1517 DSC_1513 DSC_1439 DSC_1432 DSC_1475 DSC_1451 DSC_1417 DSC_1422 DSC_1547 DSC_1610 DSC_1502 DSC_1558 DSC_1634 DSC_1653
| Skirt – House of Sunny | Body – Boohoo | Jacket – TK Maxx | Bag & Hat – Ebay | Sandals – H&M | Sunglasses – Missguided |

For so long now I’ve been completely in awe of House of Sunny – to be quite honest who on instagram hasn’t?! So when they contacted me wanting to work together I was over the moon! Originally I did order the white denim skirt but it just wasn’t quite right for me. Nicely enough of them they let me wait for the amazing CRAKK skirt to come back into stock and exchange. Now isn’t it incredible! I can’t get over the amazing print, it’s also made out of pretty nice wool and I think I’ll be able to handle wearing it through the not so sunny days of August. I’m in awe (see last picture).

Also. I’m not sure if you can tell here – but I’ve scrubbed off all of my fake tan and have decided to embrace the pale! For as long as I can remember I wanted to be tanned instead of this ghostly natural colour. When I was about 14 I discovered fake tan and finally had foundations that suited the rest of my body. I haven’t really ever looked back since. I’m sick of hearing how beautiful tanned skin is, there isn’t really enough of just how beautiful all skin is. Even pale. Soon after I’ve settled into university, I’m going to vow not to false tan for at least a month. I think I may record a blog post about it and how I felt throughout the process – please let me know if any of you would be interested in hearing this.

Ps. 4 days until I move to university! I’m so excited. I apologise if my posts are sparse over the next couple of weeks whilst I settle in. Talk soon,

Just a quick outfit post! I had my leaving meal from work on Saturday and this is a more casual version of what I wore – I wore it with heels and no hat. These shoes, bag and a white shirt are my final bits I’ve bought from Next before I lose discount. I’m sad to be leaving all my work friends, they’re some of the best friends I’ve had in all of my life. But, I’m off to a new start, a new city and a new, better life (hopefully). So in that sense, I’m super excited. Talk soon,

03/09/2014 | Part Two | Bloggers Fashion Week

DSC_1220 DSC_1272 DSC_1252 DSC_1245 DSC_1230DSC_1283 DSC_1314 DSC_1309 DSC_1305 DSC_1302 DSC_1291 DSC_1287 DSC_1399 DSC_1398 DSC_1332 DSC_1324sophsoph1
(Last two pictures have been stolen from my gurl Soph Bennett http://www.setinstyle.co.uk)

So following on from my last post – here is what me and Sophie did later in the afternoon. Around 6pm we headed off to No.1 Leicester Square for Bloggers Fashion Week hosted by Bloggers Love (#BLFW). When we got in, everyone was already into everything: browsing the brands pieces, using the tweet boutique upstairs for some goodies and having a few drinks and cupcakes/sweets. I think a few brands hadn’t turned up as I remember seeing some on the list who I couldn’t find there which was disappointing but I still had a nice evening and got some lovely gifts to try out – watch for some reviews! Especially on a new high coverage-waterproof foundation!

I’d say my favourite brand of the day was definitely FYT & Co – for one their stuff is amazing, created with a bamboo knit, it’s super soft it’s incredible. I’m dying for the light grey beanie and some of the underwear!

The night ended with a fashion show, some of the pieces were gorgeous but we couldn’t stay until the end because of our trains etc. It sucks having to travel so far for these events! I’m thinking I will more than likely head off to BLFW next season as well for another nice evening. Talk soon,

Brands Mentioned/Pictured:

Fiorelli | FYT & Co | Leighton Denny Nails | Oxygenetix | Beauty Works

On Wednesday I was back off up to London to attend Bloggers Fashion Week (hosted by Bloggers Love). It’s an event where brands showcase items and connect with many different bloggers, then ending with a fashion show later in the evening. It was also the day I got to meet my friend Sophie (www.setinstyle.co.uk) who is going to be on my university course next year which was awesome! I feel much less worried about our first lesson now.

The event started at 6 but me and Sophie thought we’d get to Leicester Square for about 4 so we could have a look around, do blogger things and go for a nice drink. We walked up to Trafalgar Square for a while and then we headed off to find a nice pub to grab a drink in. We found this cute little pub somewhere around there (I can’t think for the life of me what it was called or whereabouts it was, I apologise!) and then popped into Slug & Lettace for another one before we headed off to the event.

There will be another post up Sunday about how we got on at the event and the little treats I got given.

Here I am with my first outfit post since Reading (1 week later, oops) and I’m finally realising it’s the begining of Autumn and if I’m honest I’m actually really excited, I love Autumn. No more fake tanning every three days so I don’t appear ill with my legs out, plenty of layering which means more I’m fun and experimental with my style and I finally fit in with my wardrobe palette of dull, dark colours ;).

I picked up a few gorgeous pieces from Next with my discount before it dissapears when I move away to university – this amazing cardigan, hat and oversized striped tshirt (I got it in a mens XL). I also got a few more lovely things but I’ll save those for another time. I’ll be back again soon! Loves,

What I Wore//Reading Festival 2014

I was planning on having a Reading vlog/lookbook up tonight however, my Premiere Pro has decided to fully crash on me during the middle of an export/render and it won’t reinstall :(. So I thought I’d just write about the weekend and what I wore instead.

Thursday: Travelling/First Night of Camping

We left birmingham at about 6.00am on Thursday morning and made it into Reading by just gone 9.00am! We actually managed to find a space for our six man tent which was surprising – just glad we got there that early or there would’ve been NO chance! First thing we did was introduce to our neighbours and I began vlogging the weekend! I went with a friend called Steph that I met in college last year (SWTEPH) and as it was her 8th year at Reading – she knew plenty of people and got to introducing me! Our first night was mainly spent having a drink around the campfire and going into the arena to have a look at all the rides and pretty things – although I did have to go for an early night as I was knackered!

Friday: Gerard Way, Hacktivist, Crossfaith, Deaf Havana, Mallory Knox, Twin Atlantic, Enter Shikari, Paramore, Netsky, Silent Disco

The weekend finally got properly started when we got up, cleaned and slapped the makeup on quickly – we headed into the arena about 11:30 am to catch Gerard Way and start off the day. Infact, everyday over the weekend we were in the arena by opening time as the lineup was so epic, there were so many people we wanted to see throughout the day from start until finish. Gerard Way killed it solo and I’m so glad we were there to see it all set off! Later on, Steph introduced me to a new band I’d only ever sort of listened to (Mallory Knox) and I must say their music is awesome. Then we saw all the bands above, all pretty epic too and then it was time for Paramore…

Incase you haven’t heard about it yet, the sound system blew half way through Paramore’s performance and we had no idea why, but everything was silent! To be honest, it was one of the most amazing experiences ever. Paramore took to sitting down on the edge of the stage at 80,000 people sand acapella to The Only Exception. The sound kicked in midway through the song at the perfect moment and I will probably remember that for the rest of my life! They were absolutely incredible as always anway. I also wish I was Hayley Williams.

Later on in the night I went to watch a bit of Netsky and then popped into the Silent Disco but was pretty tired again so headed off to bed around 1!

Saturday: Gnarwolves, Royal Blood, Marmozets, Lonely the Brave, Lower than Atlantis, Of Mice & Men, Architects, While She Sleeps, Issues, Brutality Will Prevail, We Are Scientists (and more)

Ok so Saturday was an incredible day, me and Steph got a little to excited and spent basically the whole night in the pit – it was amazing. I can’t even remember the half of it but I know we had such a good time, just forgot about everything and had an awesome night – looking back on the videos from that night are absolutely hilarious. Not much else to say about Saturday besides I fell in love with Architects, of Mice and Men and Marmozets! Well besides ofcourse that I got to see my favourite duo Royal Blood *heart eyes*.

Sunday: A Day to Remember, The 1975, Sleeping with Sirens, Papa Roach, You Me at Six, Tonight Alive, The Story so Far, Letlive. and Blink 182.

This is probably the day I was looking most forward to when I booked my ticket – for so long I have loved so many of the above bands and I finally got to see them all, in one day may I add! We did the usual, got into the arena around opening time and then this day we mainly stuck by the main stage where most of our favourite bands were playing. A Day to Remember, Sleeping with Sirens, Tonight Alive, Letlive. and obviously Blink 182 were all so incredible I can’t even put it into words!

One of the best days of my life and definitely the most amazing weekend of my life so far, met so many awesome people and saw so many awesome bands – hopefully my vlog will be up in the next few days and Reading, I will see you next year ♥

(Honestly, I didn’t wear the fourth look in the end… I wore another tshirt dress as by Sunday I could not be bothered to struggle in and out of black high waisted denim shorts! Super bloating and beer belly was upon me.)
