A few weeks ago I had the most awesome day in London on my week off with Jake! These are just some of the awesome pictures he got, so I thought I’d share.
One of the highlights for me was obviously going to check out the recently opened Alexander Wang flagship store. It’s literally the most beautiful thing, I can promise you that. I left with a broken heart.
This bag which I kindly got given to try out from LYDC has become my saviour. It’s such a perfectly sized backpack, I literally use it every single day. I’ve never been so grateful for a bag in my life! It’s came so in handy. I was also informed that LYDC are now stocked in Debenhams online store. Pretty awesome!

What a mare … 3 weeks before uni starts again my laptop goes and breaks on me! Luckily, I had just put all of my blog pictures and university work onto a memory card hours before. I’m finally back on my nice shiny new laptop running all smoothly and editing like a gem!
This outfit is what I wore to the Southampton Bloggers’ Meet Up held at Revolutions Bar a few weeks back. I have plenty of photographs to go through and my little lady who runs Southampton Bloggers will be uploading them all at some point (www.anniewritesbeauty.co.uk).
The shirt I obviously fell in love with the moment I lay eyes onto it in H&M last payday… and the shoes I’d been eyeing up at work for quite a while, I was shocked they still had my size in stock to be quite honest haha. The countdown until uni begins again has begun! After a summer of being full adult (full time work, paying rent, bills out of hard works money) I literally can’t wait to get back to university, part time work, cheer and being surrounded by my friends again. Not long at all!

See I told you I’d been keeping up with all this didn’t I aye! I shot this outfit the other day based around this gorgeous lacey one-piece that Rare London so kindly contacted me about. The quality of it is suprisingly amazing, it’s pretty thick but really silky. I actually wore it out the weekend I got it too, all night (also no need for bra) and it was still in its shape and comfortable as ever.
I decided to pair it with my favourite trousers of the mo, my Primark coulettes (currently reduced to £3 go grab them now). Then I couldnt resist throwing on my Dr Marten’s with how into them I’ve been again recently and my trust old leather jacket and fedora!
Back to reality working Mon-Friday for now …

Surprise I found more old blog pictures I forgot about! These are from a while back. On the day I shot my magazine editorial from my final project at university, me and my friend, Nichole, decided to grab a couple of blog pictures. It was so handy having some of both our wardrobes there so we mixed it all up haha.
The location here where I shot my editorial is so pretty. That strange pyramid building (I think it’s a hotel) is so nice as well as all the ruins we’re actually shooting on. I love being down here in Southampton!

Silly me again, realised I completely forgot to upload the rest of the outfit pictures from my day in Bournemouth last month. So many lovely pictures thanks to someone I met at university (Jake White, I appreciate the fab photography so much ♥). I’ve been a busy bee since then, still working full time, started to sort out cheerleading committee things etc! I did go to Electric Daisy Carnival last weekend too which was absolutely incredible. But, that’ll be another post.
This jacket I’ve had from H&M for literally about 2 years and after forgetting to bring it to university for ages, I cannot stop wearing it. I’ve even had someone say it’s funny watching me try all my jackets on with an outfit because they know exactly which one I’ll end up in… It’s the perfect level of a nice thin summer jacket but thick enough for when it gets hold. These sandals though, oh my. Last SS season at H&M I picked up the all black ones which you can read about here and I’ve been saying ever since that they need the bring out the all white pair and this year was I pleased? Yes, yes I was.
I’m all settled into my new house and living arrangements now in prep for second year of university – which by the way I managed to pass with a high 2.1 (yay)! For now, more sleep…

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.

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.
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.
