| The Fashion Tag (15 Questions) | 21/07/17 |

MORNING YOU GORGEOUS BUNCH! Today I thought I would be a little bit cringeeey and step into a blog post that is pretty standard and generic. I admittedly have never done anything like this before, so apologies if this isn't the kind of blog post you'd hoped for haha. So today's blog post is... THE FASHION TAG! Enjoy beauties...

Dress: Jack Wills
Handbag: ASOS
Espadrilles: Dune

1) What is your style?
I would describe my style as quite bohemian, due to the fact that I love loose fitting clothing; neutral colours, and all things tassels and floral which reflect a lot of 70's vibes. However, I do also have 90's grunge tendencies, as mom jeans teamed with an oversized checked shirt, or baggy tees partnered with a thousand rips in my jeans or denim jacket is always right down my street. 

2) Who is your fashion role model?
My fashion role model is absolutely without a doubt, Kate Moss. I am completely obsessed and slightly infatuated by her and her style. I think she has blossomed entirely in the fashion industry, and has made a career for herself that most can only dream of. Her modelling talents, iconic face and personal style have brought me endless inspiration and I will forever credit her for being the inspiration for my biggest passion (and my own career direction hopes).

3) What do you ALWAYS wear?
On a cold day, I always opt for jeans and a jumper because typically I'm not a fond lover of tights and anything exposing my legs slightly when its freezing outside. Furthermore, in the summer I am always wearing a pair of sunglasses - in fact most of the year I will have a pair of sunglasses to hand.

4)  What are your favourite pair of jeans?
My absolute staple pair of jeans currently, are my three quarter-length ASOS blue denim jeans. They fit remarkably snugly and I think they just look awesome and effortlessly cool. 

5) What are your favourite pair of sunglasses?
Without a doubt, my favourite pair of sunglasses are my beloved round vintage ones from Hindsight Vintage Sunglasses. I have owned these for a year and have worn them for the most part of the whole year. They are the perfect fit for my little head, they always make an outfit 100 times better, and I just love the vintage vibes they bring. ULTIMATE SHADES. 

6) What are your favourite pair of shoes?
To be honest, I'm not much of a shoe enthusiast, but if I'm being completely truthful, my favourite pair of shoes are probably a pair of turquoise blue lace up trainers from ASOS that costed me about £20. They are extremely dirty and are incredibly scuffed all over, but they give maximum comfort and I would not give them up for the world.

7) Who inspired you to write about fashion?
I'm not really sure what initially drew me to start writing a fashion blog, but I knew it was a passion of mine so I just sort of decided I wanted to do it. However, I do remember looking at Lottie Bown's blog and thinking, I definitely want to take the plunge and create my own little cosy, tranquil hub on the internet. ---- Link to her blog here.

8) What is your favourite shop/online store?
ASOS. Need I say more?

9) Who is your favourite fashion related YouTuber?
At first thought, it would definitely be Lizzie Hadfield from shotfromthestreet, however I have been loving Megan Ellaby SO FLIPPIN MUCH over the past few months, so I might go as far to say she's overtaken Lizzie ever so slightly at the moment. Lizzie is exceptionally classy and chic, and experiments with a lot of high street versus high end content, which I love - I am also completely obsessed with her blog. Megan, on the other hand, is a lot more 'relatable' in the sense she is a lot more high street focused, and her style is a lot brighter and bolder which really excites me! I will plug Megan's YouTube here,and Lizzie's here.

10) Your wardrobe is mostly full of...?
Checked shirts, tea dresses and Georges clothes.

11) Do you always think about your outfit of the day, or do you just opt for comfort?
It really depends on the day, if I want to have a productive day, whether that be going out and doing stuff, or be sitting in the house writing blog posts and getting uni work/ housework done, then I will plan out myself a nice outfit that makes me feel confident and ready for a productive day ahead. Whereas, if I'm just hanging out, or haven't got any solid plans then I will 100% just throw anything I feel comfortable in, on. I always ensure that I am wearing a comfortable outfit, as I am a huge fan of easy fashion and hate fiddly clothes that need attending to whilst being worn - all about that easy life. :)

12) If you had £5000 to spend on one item, what would you choose?
I really couldn't choose, I would feel completely stupid purchasing something that costs that much, I'd rather get a large ASOS order on the go, than to spend £5000 on one item. However, if I did have to purchase something high-end, it would definitely be a pair of sunglasses as I know I would get my wear out of them, suggesting its a little better value for money. But truly, I could not justify spending that much on one item.

13) Heels or flats?
Flats 100%. The only time I ever wear a pair of heels is if I wear a heeled boot on a night out. Otherwise, you will basically never see me in heels. They're just difficult and annoying lol, even though I am short, I don't care enough to wear heels!

14) What is your current go-to handbag?
I have a black ASOS straw bag that's quite large and I have reached for that a lot recently, especially if I'm having a weekend away with George or going off on a day trip, its super ideal.

15) Do you own anything you haven't ever worn?
Unfortunately, yes. I have a few things I've purchased (mostly tops) and have never worn. How awful of me!!!

That's all for today, thanks for reading!
I hope you enjoyed this post, I know it was a little different to usual, which hopefully was a good thing. See ya'll soon!

Sending peace and love 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…
