| Time Flies | 25/04/17

Yo guys, it's been a long time since I last wrote to you all. So here's a quick update...

So, I've mostly been completely consumed by the colossal workload that studying at university brings and I've somehow managed to get completely swept away by the time - how is it almost May?!?! I've also been spending a lot of time chilling out and attempting to make the most of these final weeks of my first year as a student. Essentially, I've been hanging out with my friends and George 24/7 watching endless movies, playing computer games that I always lose at, and going on nights out where possible. So I've been both stressed out and also having fun... work hard play hard? (lol cringe soz) - so the blog has taken a little step backward. I do feel guilty for not keeping the blog posts regular at this time of year, but I am really enjoying my university experience, so I'm also kinda glad I've had a small break. But nonetheless, here I am, back at it again with the blog posts.

With summer soon approaching, I have been going a bit crazy with creating my SS17 wardrobe, and in the attempt of trying not to break the crippling student bank, I thought I'd share with you how I've incorporated the new trends of the season with some of last years pieces to create an everyday spring look - for less. 

The only new item within this look is my blue washed denim jeans. I am actually so obsessed with these at the moment, and with just a glimpse of sun, these frequently are pulled out of the draw. They're a three-quarter-length jean, which I think is so funky and adds a little something different to a simple outfit. I also love the shape of these as they are most similar to the ASOS Farleigh Jean which is my holy grail of jeans. In terms of adhering to the SS17 trends, these jeans have a gorgeous ripped/ fringing effect at the ankle, which in my opinion, looks even better after  few wears and washes - the messy chic vibe (so me). 

I paired them with a khaki green dress that is heavily SS16 with the lace up detailing at the neckline. To be honest, I don't find this dress particularly flattering against my body, however I wanted to give it a go as it is super comfy! 

I chose to wear a pair of sandal boots from last year also, as I didn't get a lot of wear out of them because I became almost peep-toe intolerant lol, and I'm still not a fan of the peep-toe. But again, thought I ought to give them a second chance. These are also super comfortable, and the heel is so walkable too...I need something like this but with the toe covered <3 lol. 

I also popped on my beloved sunnies from Hindsight Vintage Sunglasses. Nuff sed.

I am currently sat in bed with my twinkling fairy lights warmly lit above my bed, with Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine being the soundtrack of my evening and I must admit I am feeling pretty blissful. To be quite honest, this time of year is the most blissful for me, because the sun is boldly shining even if its a bit chilly; the softly pink blossom on the trees smells like all that's good in the world; and the tiny birds are always chirping away early in the morning when I'm sat with my first cuppa of the day (I'm a morning person if you didn't notice). It also indicates that summer is up and coming, which excites me so thoroughly. I have a couple of great things to look forward to this summer, including a few days in a wood cabin with my wonderful friends and a trip away to Spain for a festival with George (I MEAAAAAAN YES PERLEASE), so that alone will make my summer 100X more special than ever. Aside from assignments and an upcoming exam, I feel particularly great with how things are going at the moment, and I can only hope that all is the same for all my lovely readers. I will definitely be keeping you informed with anything cool I get up to (probs not a lot because I am gonna be extremely poor) but I hope to make some fantastic memories with the people I love most. 

Peace out guys, love to you all x x 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…
