Wednesday



Sometimes no matter how much you plan an outfit, it never looks right. Then there are those rare times when it feels like you have nothing to wear so you heap on a load of clothes that don't match and something wonderful happens. Today was one of those days - I love this outfit. 
I went on a little shopping spree today so I have lots of goodies coming up to show you.
So jumper - H&M, scarf - Next, skirt - Zara, boots - New Look, bangles - Accessorize and belt - River Island.

So trousers and cardi - Zara, jumper and boots- H&M, belt - River Island and necklace is Vivienne Westwood.

Oh Hey, I'm an Adult.



Tonight I took my parents out for dinner, I felt like a proper grown up. It was wonderful and now we are snuggling down to watch a Christmas film. So, I will keep this short and sweet.

Christmas Jumper




I got this new magazine called 'Hunger', all the photography is by Rankin. It is AMAZING. It is a huuuuge magazine and has no adverts in it, it is full of great interviews and even better photos. The only problem is that it's going to take me ages to read it all. 
So once again I'm wearing a fairly festive outfit, I've got my Christmas jumper on and a glittery belt. The reason that I've included photos is because he is wearing his Christmas collar which matches my belt. And also, he is cute. 
So today, jumper and belt - Dorothy Perkins, skirt - Topshop, boots - New Look and necklace - H&M.

Baaaah



This is what I wore to work today - work was brutal. It was a very, very long day and we were lifting tonnes of boxes up and down the stairs. 
Anyway, I am doing a photo shoot in London on Monday, I can't have arms, legs or chest showing, and my skirt can't be above the knee. So essentially I have to be completely covered but I still want to wear something nice. I have NO idea what to wear! Does anyone have any ideas? HELP!
Shorts, shirt and belt - River Island, t-shirt, socks and necklace - H&M and boots - New Look.

It's Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas


 


It doesn't photograph very well but my mum made this basket of fairy lights and cones, its so pretty. My 21st birthday is coming up in the next few weeks, so today I bought a very, very sparkly dress to wear for it. I'm so excited, I can't wait to wear it.
Today I wrapped 96 presents for my dad's work colleagues with another 48 to wrap tonight - mental. It is definitely beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Jumper - Tesco, shorts - Topshop, belt - River Island, hairband - H&M, necklace - vintage, boots - New Look and I have no idea where the socks are from.

Spot Spot Spot Spot


Running out the door for work once again! 
Tonight I went to see that New Year's Eve film, it just reminded me about how much I hate New Year. This year I am going to babysit for my friend's baby and watch films with my wonderful friend Louise, this sounds like a much better idea to me. 
Today I really wanted to wear a gold sparkly belt, but sadly I don't own one :(
So anyway, playsuit and booties - River Island, belt - Dorothy Perkins, t-shirt - Gap and I have no idea where the hairband is from.

Stormy the Seahorse


Today was an absolutely MENTAL day. First of all, Scotland has been hit by hurricane Bawbag (if you're not from Scotland this is a very hilarious but rude name) so the weather has been ridiculously bad.
Today I was also working on a photo shoot for Hello magazine, we were styling a famous golfer and his wife. The shoot should be out in the new year and I will post it as soon as I see it. They're house was absolutely beautiful as were the photos.
Then on our way home from the shoot, everything had shut down due to the weather and so our car broke down on a country road in the middle of the storm because all the petrol stations were shut. My hero of a dad came and saved us.
So all in all in has been a very interesting and stressful day. 
However - EXCITING NEWS - I am going to do a jewellery shoot in London next week! More chat about that later.  
This is what I wore - skirt and belt - River Island, shirt - charity shop, boots - New Look, necklace - H&M and hat - Accessorize.

What does one wear?


This is a photo of me running out the door to a very busy day at work. 
Tomorrow, I'm doing a photo shoot for Hello magazine! BRILL. I also heard it in the rumour mill, that we are going to be styling a famous person... We'll see and I'll let you know how it goes. Now here's the question - what should I wear!?
So today I'm feeling very Parisian today - hat and boots - River Island, jumper and earrings - H&M, belt - Dorothy Perkins, bag - Cambridge Satchel Company and I made the skirt.

Day Off!






Today was the first day in a long time that I've not had anything to do - it was absolutely amazing. I slept in, went to yoga and then made myself a Christmas maxi skirt. 
It's very glittery so I'll get it on here soon. 
I forgot that I hadn't posted my finished fashion film - I am completely sick of watching it now but you can take a wee look and let me know what you think. It's based on the theme of Castaway and the model in it is my amazing sister, Emily. She was very patient as I made her stand in the freezing cold. 
Today I'm wearing leggings and shoes - New Look, top - Topshops, belt - Dorothy Perkins, cardi and coat - charity shop, necklace - H&M and hat - M&S.

Snow and White Jeans



That is actual real snow and I would be quite happy if that's all we got this year - I am not a fan of snow. However it does make for a pretty picture. 
On a happier note - I finished uni today! One month of bliss ahead! When I am not at work I am going to do lots of sewing and eating - brill. 
So seeing as it's snowing I thought it was the perfect time to bring out white cropped jeans... Clearly I am slightly delirious after staying up half the night finishing various uni projects. 
Jeans - MiH at Jane Davidson, headband - Oakwood at Jane Davidson, jumper - H&M, boots - New Look, bag - The Cambridge Satchel Company and I honestly don't know where the jewellery came from. 

Saturday's Post



This post really should've been posted on Saturday but I have been ridiculously busy finishing of all my uni  work so I haven't had the time. As of today though I will have finished uni and will be back to posting regularly. 
So the video is of my choir's performance which we did on Saturday, I'm the soloist which is quite exciting and you can now hear what I sound like! Unfortunately my sister who was filming is as short as I am and couldn't see past the crowd to film properly but the music is all there. 
Now the outfit I'm wearing here is what I wore to my Christmas staff night out on Saturday which was brilliant. Im wearing a velvet skirt which I made, jumper and necklace - H&M, belt - Dorothy Perkins and boots - New Look.

Nutcracker


I went to the theatre tonight to see a modern production of the Nutcracker. It was AMAZING, by far the best version of the Nutcracker and probably the best ballet I've ever seen. 
Yesterday I worked at my 3rd fashion show in 11 days, I am so busy at the moment which is why my blogging effort is a bit sparse. 
So this is my theatre outfit - skirt - Pretaportabello, t-shirt and necklace - H&M, belt - Dorothy Perkins and jacket - Charity shop.

Old Dress, New Boots




My printer has had a bit of a work out today. With uni deadlines looming, I am currently printing out my photography folio and various essays. I can not wait until uni is finished!
Today I also made the velvet skirt I was taking about making the other day, I think it looks pretty good but I will let you guys decide when I wear it on Saturday. 
I forgot I had the dress. I think I stopped wearing it as a dress dress because its very short so today I'm wearing it as a day dress with leggings which I think works a lot better. 
So dress - Joy, leggings - River Island, cardigan - Charity shop, earrings - H&M and new boots - New Look. 


Christmas Monday


 It has taken me most of the day to upload because the internet is slow.
Today I had to do a presentation on Ethical Fashion at uni and I am so glad that it's over. 
Tonight I am in Gala because myself and my flat mates are celebrating Christmas early as we all finish uni this week. We went out for a wonderful dinner and drinks and then came back and 
swapped presents - lovely. 
Today's outfit is playsuit (worn as top) - Topshop, skirt - Zara, belt - Dorothy Perkins, necklace and socks - H&M and shoes - Zara.

Procrastinating Sunday




I was meant to do a mountain of work today but instead I had a day of fun, went and bought velvet from the fabric shop, singing lessons and then went shopping with my mum. I'm planning to make a skirt for my work night out with the fabric I bought. I am now sitting down to begin writing Christmas cards. Brilliant but I have done absolutely no work for uni tomorrow. Tricky. Especially as I have a presentation to do in the afternoon...
Anyway, jumper - Dorothy Perkins, dress, hairband, necklace and boots - H&M, belt - River Island.
Hope you've had a good weekend.
