October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.


So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni

University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed to update you all on what I've been up to.

I do not have any photos to share with you of a new outfit or all time favourite pair of jeans - I'm not sure if that's because I've been lazy or if the student financial crisis has hit me! I am SO broke, but to be honest I really don't mind.

University and the big wide world away from my family has taught me so much already, its taught me that friends are so important, that grades at school do not limit your abilities and that the use by date on most foods can be ignored for a few days if you just believe. lol. P.S Never take for granted home-cooking and vegetables (big shoutout to my mum right now). But seriously, I cannot express to you enough how much I am glad that I chose to go to university this year when I was so close to taking an almighty 'gap year' but yet I am thankful that I didn't opt for that.

So, I do have plans to create some exciting blog posts in my new surroundings that are arguably more aesthetically pleasing than my back garden or the park around the corner, and I will most definitely continue blogging once I have settled into a proper routine and can find the time because I do love blogging. But, I am really focusing on myself and my prospering future at the moment, because I am in a real sense of contentment with my new beginning - if you can't already tell.

I hope I am not boring you with my ramblings, as this post is a kind of one-off special. My update to you all is that I am loving life and treasuring each moment it brings, so I hope that from this you can bring yourself to appreciate all you have and to cherish every memory you make because memories are worth so much more than a new handbag or killer autumn shade MAC lipstick - I promise. See you all very soon.

| Going Back To Basics | 10/10/17 |

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

| Autumn Is On The Way | 12/09/17 |

I am in absolute shock at how quickly this year is passing us by, how is it already September? As we all know, September is that time of year where everyone goes back to school/college/uni and we begin the much anticipated warm up to hot chocolate, fluffy socks and CHRISTMAS. Fear not, don't run away, I'm not one of those crazy Christmas people who begins to prepare the following Christmas in January, its just something to think about...

Autumn is becoming apparent now, and leaves will soon be falling from the trees, boots and coats will be dusted off from last year, and we will all begin to say those forbidden words, 'I am so cold'. Alongside many, Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, particularly in terms of fashion. I am a huge fan of comfort over style (ironically) so Autumn gives me the perfect excuse to allow my baggy jumpers and checked shirts to pass as fashion pieces. So today, I thought I would share with you all my first composed AW17 look. Please e…
