Sunglasses


So I picked the gloomiest, least sunny day to shoot this - clever! 

Sunglasses are definitely an essential for summer and finding the right pair at the right price can sometimes be difficult. Personally, I struggle with two things with sunglasses: 1) finding a pair that stay on my head 2) keeping a pair and keeping them unbroken for more than one summer. 

Pink round sunglasses: Asos
Pink/ orange metal frame sunglasses: Topshop
Subtle cat eye sunglasses: Topshop

When looking for a pair of sunglasses, I usually hit the high street. Purely because they're reasonably priced but also because it means I won't cry if I lose them or break them (I usually do). Topshop are brilliant for sunglasses, they have a huge range of different styles, colours and shapes so I would definitely recommend their range this year. The pink/ orange metal pair, I purchased for £15 from Topshop. I like them because they're relatively subtle in terms of the translucent plastic frame and the thin metal sides. The only issue I have found with this pair of sunglasses is the fact that because of the 'awkward' colour, they can be difficult to match with an outfit- this is what I've discovered. They don't fit my head particularly well, they do have a tendency to slide around slightly however I think that may be and issue with relatively inexpensive sunglasses - a quality issue which you wouldn't experience with a designer pair. I have worn these a handful of times and I do think they're very sweet! 

The pink plastic Asos pair of sunglasses are great. I bought them last year for around £12, I can't quite remember and I still have them - indestructible haha!! Because they're round and quite bold I think they're the perfect pair of sunglasses for going to festivals or fairs etc because they are SO funky. They fit me really well and look really great with an all-pink or white outfit. I would highly recommend having a browse on Asos' website for sunglasses. 

The final pair of sunglassses that I wanted to share with you are also from Topshop. They were priced at £16. They are 100% my 'go to' pair of sunglasses because they match with everything and fit my pea-head really really well. The subtle cat eye means that they look super stylish but aren't too flamboyant which I love about them. Because of the colour, you can wear them with just about anything and the plastic frame, I find, means they feel a lot tighter and more secure on my head! The best thing about topshop's glasses, of course, is the fact you get agree sunglasses case with each pair you purchase - super handy! 

See you soon ! X

The internet is such a strange world, and it is in fact its own world - so far from reality yet so close, it redefines society conceptually to be honest. The internet can bring such wonderful things into the world: the announcement of a new baby, an endless supply of fashion inspiration, the top news at the fastest rate, and so many amazing memories and conversations can be shared between the beautiful people on this planet. The internet is an extraordinary place, and even more so as someone who has grown up in this time of technology. I bloody love the internet and all it brings to the world, I honestly think the internet is such a great platform for humanity to connect, share and create.
However, I have been wondering my mind recently, quite intently, and have found myself shying away from the internet, and social media platforms. Despite the fact I have no huge following…

| 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.

| The Truth About Student Life | 20/02/18 |

M O R N I N G 

I almost feel like I've forgotten how to write a blog post, so the format of this post might be a bit 'up in the air'. Therefore, before I delve into things, here's a quick disclaimer... On the 26th December, I uploaded a blog post surrounding the topic of social media, and the influence I feel it has on the mental health of its users. Since then, I have been absent from this blog, and largely absent from social media in general, because I feel as though I've had nothing worth saying recently. I would much rather only upload when I am bringing a little something useful to the internet that even if only one person found it interesting, it would at least have a purpose.
 This leads swiftly on to the subject of this post. Student life, and the truth about how it feels to experience daily life as a young adult, studying at University. I promise to not sugar coat the finer details, and to accurately portray the common notions of being a student. Shall we…
