| Keeping Thing's Simple | 26/05/17 |


I have been loving this change of weather this week; the continuous downpour of rain was just beginning to dampen my mood (pun very much intended), but now that the sun is shining, I feel very much refreshed and ready to provide summer content for you funky lot. 

Before I get cracking, how do we all feel about money? Personally, I find money, and the absence of, utterly stressful. Since leaving home, I've felt overwhelmed at times with the responsibility of handling money; ensuring I have enough money to pay bills on time and so that I never run out. As a student, obviously this can be overbearingly painful at times as student loans aren't the most generous. However, I would honestly love to know if this is it now, for the rest of time, am I going to spend my entire existence feeling concerned about what's in my bank?!?!?!?! WILL THE PAIN EVER END?! Anyway, before I give myself premature grey hair and wrinkles, let's get on with things...

I feel like this outfit really captures a typical spring/summer look of mine. I have a tendency to lean towards dresses when the weather brightens up, particularly as I'm not the most keen shorts-wearer. I feel like because I am short and don't have the slimmest thighs ever, that shorts really don't flatter me all that well, and so I am less confident in a pair of denim shorts than a dress or skirt, so come summertime, I regularly opt for a skirt/dress like the one in this post.

Checking out the floor like Kylie Jenner, lmao...

I haven't had this dress for a particularly long time, however this season I have been creating a small collection of plain black dresses in my wardrobe, in both midi and maxi length. They are incredibly versatile and both body-con and jersey dresses provide comfort and a hint of style - easy fashion, my fave. This particular dress I love because of the jersey spaghetti straps and the high neckline. Also, the high split on the leg adds a little something to quite a 'plain Jane' dress. This dress was from New Look, and I must say that I don't frequently visit New Look all that much anymore, as it honestly reminds me of being 15/16 and spending my pocket money in New Look whenever I had enough to make a purchase. But, I am pleasantly surprised by this dress, and I did in fact buy a dress very similar last year from New Look, so if you're on the hunt for a black midi dress, most definitely have a gander in their store, or online!!!

***Quick disclaimer, thanks George for purchasing this dress for me, u did gd man.***

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…
