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.

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…
