"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different".. Coco Chanel. I shall live and die by this quote. Be who you want to be, not who someone wants you to be, it honestly is the difference between being happy and not. I aim to blog about fashion and all that surrounds it.

Starting out.

So I've started to get serious about life, I feel like its a reality check. As I've said already, much has happened this year so, it begins.

I grabbed a friend the other Friday and between us had a pile of clothing in the boot of my Pluriel that could have easily rounded up to £300. Now for two students that are constantly broke, that's a achievement on its own.    So we hit out to several places I visualised to be worthwhile for some beautiful shots. 

We achieved 4 looks, Kels was amazing and did everything I asked of her, It was like having a giant Barbie for the day. We started off in a Beautiful local field/dog walking area, I started with a simple outfit with a relaxed lounge feel to it. 

Secondly we headed to our local woods, Norsey Woods, where here, I created a Barbie mountain goat, climbing into trees.  I did not achieve as many 'good' shots here due to lighting issues, all of the frames from this day we're all natural lighting with NO reflector. It is safe to say, I cam home and have purchased a 5-in-1! 

Thirdly, we moved onto Hannigfield reservoir. Simple and edgy. This was where my favourite shots came from...

So that was round one...

I have to say I loved every minute of it and I could not have asked to work with someone better, Big thank you to Kelsey!!

Thanks All for now :)

The first post.

Well, Hi there Guys and Girls...

I have been saying for weeks.. well, actually more like months that I wanted to start blogging.  And well, It's finally happened! 

So be kind guys, I'm new to this!

I guess I should start with a little bit about me..

Well, I'm a student, doing my A Levels, and I'm aiming to go to University next year heading in the direction of Fashion Styling and Photography.  I've recently bought Photoshop, Gosh, I've forgot everything I learnt about it on a course at the beginning of August, so I'm in the sticky stuff there.... I have my trusty Canon 1000d at the ready and have some beautiful friends lined up as models/victims. We can't decide which it shall turn out to be just yet.    During these developments I want to share them you all, I would love some response and the odd reality check :) 
Life's a little crazy at the moment,  It's been one of those years. Currently writing my personal statement, applying to institutions and to top it off, I'm 18 in 14 days. 

I have a problem.     I spend more than I earn.    I plan outfits before I have the items to wear it. I have loads of bags and shoes, but not enough.    And my room is FAR to small to house them all. 

SO, anyway.    I'm creating this Blog to kick start my delivery of fashion. I cannot promise a regular update or post however, I shall never forget about you my bloggets :) 

1/1 DONE!!!  :)
