"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.

Popping Makeup

The other week a ex-house mate and friend of mine asked me to shoot her final year work for her exhibition, she's a MUA at the same University as me. Of course I was happy to help her out.

It was a 1950's/ pop art/ sailor theme. Over all it was a bit of a nightmare with dodgy lights, a half hearted 'studio' and limited time to edit in-between shifts I finally got there. Luckily Alix was a happy girl with the final outcome and me, I'm still trying to make my mind up but I thought I would share it with you all anyway!

Hope everyone's well and dodging the beautiful rain we seem to be constantly having!

Here it is!

Dancing with lions

So this is a random one.. My family, Fray and my sisters friend have all booked onto a Safari experience thingy, literally its at the top of my bucket list to bounce around in a Jeep watching all the animals in their natural environment, doing there thing. However, this isn't quite my dream but its a good step towards it at a fraction of the cost! So in August we're heading down to Kent for a full on African Safari experience!!! (Dusk and Dawn Jeep tours, tradish food, drink and even sleeping looking out on the Kent Plains of Africa). So I'm very much excited and once again whilst procrastinating, I've ended up on Topshop looking at a certain few 'new arrivals'.

And Oh God. What a surprise.... it's got me thinking.


All Topshop;
Day One

Collar £15.00
Cami £12.00
Safari Skirt £22.00
Sandals £45.00

Jacket £45.00
Bag £34.00 (also in other colours)

Day Two

Crochet Top £22.00

It really is all essential, the little belt for safety ofc. A little jacket for the evenings and even shoes strapped to your feet.. This is acceptable? Yeah...

(I clearly have far too much time on my hands and have just got far too excited by all of this...)

Formal attire yet slightly lacking etiquette

The day finally arrived that allowed me, once and for all, to experience my first wedding (and wear a grown up outfit and not stick out like a sore thumb!). As some of you will know, I've been going on about what to wear for agesssss! So Ido apologise but that's now all in the past and you can finally see what I ended up wearing, you can't go wrong with a Zara number;

Dress Zara 
Jacket H&M
Necklace Ebay
Bag Ebay
Shoes Carvela

I had to panic buy this little jacket two days before as after seeing the forecast I was set to panic/frost bite stations and luckily came across this little black jacket in H&M for £35.00... Saving the day once again, thank you, you gorgeous people!  The pictures may look all sunny but, only a wedding which Im attending, in May, would have a thunderstorm mid ceremony so you can hear bugger all in the church! Thankfully by the end it was a bit brighter and there were smiles all round :)

Fray and Me
Fray wore; 
Suit Ben Sherman 
Shirt & tie Next

Here's just a few more photo's from the day, we had a awesome time...... Just incase you can't tell ;)

Pencil skirts and boxy tops

I have to say, I'm a very big fan of a pencil skirt and a baggy box top at the moment, It slowly is starting to take over my wardrobe (which I have no problem with), I'm getting a mix from everywhere because everyone is doing some down right gorge stuff! Thank god this summer is going to be fuelled by a job now! Woo

This is a little outfit I wore the other day, I felt like a little kid all day but... I loved it! Defo my summer pieces!  Must go... Got some hunting to do for some more :p

Top River Island
Necklace H&M
Skirt Primark
Shoes Next 

What's your current obsession?! Are you a pencil pusher too... :)

Take care... 


Ps the wedding is this weekend! Come back next week to see the outfit!
