I was lucky enough to head off to Venice just after my birthday with Jake this year! This is just a little video I made of our long weekend there.

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:

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.

This is just what I wore yesterday to college for a photoshoot! I’ll post the pics soon. I tried to vlog it all but I got so busy and only managed to get video of makeup and hair so it’s pointless editing and uploading :(. Anyway, I love these fishnet sockies, amazing H&M jumper and surprisingly awesome Primark sandals!

The day turned out pretty great in the end and the photos are amazing! The original model I was using couldn’t make it in the end so I had a last minute switch. The models suited perfectly and really did look and give off a whole Bonnie and Clyde feel. I got loads of pictures outside on the canal out the back of my college as well as a few shots in the studio with props.

It really was a great day, fun as well as getting my work done! I’ll fill you in more soon, loves.

If you do read my blog often, you’ll know that I purchased this gorgeous, gorgeous oversized t-shirt dress from Missguided on pay day last month! I have been saving it for the perfect outfit, I had to wait 20 days for my shoes and obviously having my memory card stolen etc. you know the story! But the other day I finally got the chance to get some shots and I love it. This is definitely one of my most favourite outfits I’ve ever put together for myself, it’s just so me.

I spotted the dress when going through Missguided’s new in page as I tend to do everyday and fell in love with it. I saw it in black first but when I saw the white I knew I had to buy it (of course, it’s white duh). They also sell crop top versions of this and they’re gorgeous too! These shoes as well though, oh my god, I’ve been wanting them for months and months and months and I finally treated myself to them last month too, I found the store ‘My Mum Made It’ on Instagram a few months ago and it’s so pretty, it’s all minimal and monochrome and just so beautiful ♥

I finished off the outfit with my parental advisory beanie from eBay, my pixelated xl heart earrings from Claire’s Accessories, a greek sort of printed bangle from New Look, statement black chain necklace from Next, a black GShock watch and of course my Michael Kors astor bracelet from Tom (that’s a lot of accessories haha oopsie). I’ve been wearing my glasses a lot recently but I’ve realised they make me look rather strange in photographs because of the way I have to look out of them, so I think I shall be putting  my contact lenses in for the future! Talk soon, mwah.

Wishlist 5/10/13 | Excite Clothing!

Wishlist 5/10/13 | Excite Clothing!

I was recently contacted by Excite Clothing and I chose to have a browse through their website. They are pretty fabulous! There are a few key items I am seriously in love with (the tartan skirt and new york jersey for example) they are so amazingly me!

1. Tartan Stretch Skirt
I have been looking for a slightly shorter than knee length tartan skirt for a while now. I love pencil skirts, I do! But, they just aren’t for me, never have suited me and I’m not sure they ever will! I always prefer to go with a much more skin-tight sort of fit with this types of skirt. I finally found my perfect tartan skirt right here!

2. Skull Embellished Jumper
How WICKED is this jumper?! They do it in plenty of colours but my personal favourite was the simple black, as usual! I did love the plum as well though. I love how it’s not just a skull print, that there are actually 3D gold studs embellished on it, so far ahead with the trend! Amazing.

3. Aztec/Neon Bomber Jacket
I’ve wanted a bomber jacket for ages but I don’t know I haven’t came across many I love except from the tartan bomber from Zara. I can’t afford it though! This is much more afford at just £15. I know it’s not summer anymore but I’m still such a huge fan of mixing up monochrome with a little bit of neon and this involves my second favourite – yellow! Orange being my first you might know hehe.

4. Blue Ice Print Dress
Ok I am seriously crazy about this unusual print! I’m not even the slightest bit sure what it is meant to be, to me it almost looks like some place out of World of Warcraft hahaha! Anyway, I just love this dress for the unusal print, you could go crazy with styling this.

5. Contrast Jumper
I never noticed at first, but as soon as I saw that the sleeves on this jumper had an almost mesh sleeve… I was sold. I’m liking the whole mesh look so much lately, it’s sort of everywhere now!

6. Skater Dress with Bow Detail
This dress is beautiful! At the back it has the cutest little way to put a dress together ever, it looks just like a bow! With cut out areas around it. Also loving the navy blue for this Autumn! With a pair of black tights and some pixie chelsea boots I can see!

7. Cable Knit Jumper
Everyone in the world needs a cable knit jumper, a nice thick one for the cold days. At excite clothing you haven’t even got to fork out much for one! The colour of the one I’ve chosen is sort of a dark bluey-green and I think it’s gorgeous.

8. Slouch Chain Bucket Bag
IT’S ORANGE! That’s the main reason, plus you know me and studs/spikes/chains. Perfect match! I just personally think it’s a really cute bag to just add into any bland outfit.

8. New York Jersey
This is my second favourite on the wishlist, why? Because it’s New York and because it’s a Jersey, PLUS it’s in my favourite basketball team’s colours. Ooops. The New York Knicks colours are white, blue and orange and this is just so pretty!

Go check out excite clothing now at http://www.exciteclothing.com and grab yourself some bargains.
They also have a plus size range which is fab and I’m gutted that some pieces aren’t in my size! :(. Enjoy!

10 Ways To Wear Tartan, Pt.1 (Sunglasses at Night)

sunglasses at night

I have decided to show you a couple of ways that I personally like to wear one single key statement print EVERYONE needs this season – TARTAN!. This is the first instalment of the series, I haven’t done an outfit post in a while so I thought I’d just give you this casual one! It’s not how I’d usually dress for my style and outfits but I was just on a trip for Nando’s for mine and Tom’s anniversary (cute). So I wasn’t really all dressed up! Oh my god though we ate like absolute beasts, we had one meal each and then shared wings, chips, garlic bread and sweetcorn! Plus, 4 desserts between us! Oopsie. Hadn’t been in a while so we couldn’t resist.

Basically I have been looking for the perfect Tartan shirt for a while now but I just haven’t found it, until I was up in the Stockroom at Next and spotted this one, there was just this one and a size 16, so lucky they had mine muahaha. Plus 25% discount yano ;). These boots were also a bargain! I was looking round the charity shops with my college buds the other day and spotted these, they aren’t real Dr Martens, but I can’t believe how much of a good replica they are. For a fiver as well? I couldn’t resist really!

I just threw it all together with my Missguided LBD and my vintage denim jacket, my favourites! Haha I also just popped my Versace sunnies on even though it was dark! I thought it added to the whole feel. It’s just a whole casual everyday look for me. Mwah.

Leather Love.

DSC_0148 DSC_0167DSC_0180(I had to add a photo with one of my babies, he wouldn’t get out the way of the camera! He obviously wanted one ♥ )

More pieces from my TK Maxx winnings! The leggings are from the MODBOX section and the leather vest is just from womenswear. My gorgeous Iron Fists that I’m in love with were actually only purchased the other day after I was mooching around and fell for them hehe. I kind of went with a hippie gone rock chick kind of vibe for this look, going all out leather – the vest, the leggings and the ‘Creeper’ like shoes.

I just added a cute red and blue scarf I received second hand to add a little bit of colour, the crododile skin bag is also just second hand from a thrift shop! Such a find.  Nearly time for getting back into college and that as well so I’m putting a lot more casual outfits together now! I had a change of scenery too, outside in my garden in my moms little section with her herbs and a cute shabby chic feel which I thought would work out fabulously and I think it did! Hope you likey.

A Night in with New Look – finally came!

So the event was today, the hard work was all paid off for the applause and appreciation we got! It was so, so amazing I can’t even express how proud I am of Goldie and I – It was literally one of the best days ever for me. I was doing what I loved. Here’s some photos of the models/audience/feedback. I will edit the runway photos and post them tomorrow! Thankyou to every single person that attended. You’re all awesome – and you New Look, Kidderminster Girls did absolutely AMAZING.

We also got interviewed by a journalist and will be soon in the papers around Kidderminster – so exciting! The guests also seemed to love my styling, as a lot of the feedback notes said how much they loved my styling, how I presented it and one that really touched me was about how I made somebody realised you don’t have to be a size 0! That one really got me.
