Bralet - Topshop
Shorts - Urban Outfitters
Boots - Primark
Choker & Bag - LA MODA

I don't know how often I've mentioned this but I'm totally obsessed with all things Japanese, so when I saw the adverts for the Hyper Japan Christmas Market I knew I had to go. I got some really cute beauty bits along with this kimono, which is just super pretty and the colours are perfect. I can't wait to wear it a bit more in the summer time (yes, I was rather cold shooting this outfit).

I also took some photos of the girls I saw dressed up at the Hyper Japan Market so I'll publish a blog post with those in soon! Some of the girls there had gone all-out with their 'kawaii' looks and it was just so fab to see their dedication to the style.

Let me know if you'd like to see that?

Top - Nasty Gal (similar here)
Bra - M&S
Jeans - Primark
Bag - Nasty Gal
Shoes - Forever 21
Pom pom - Primark

Arghhh I have an exam tomorrow! I probably shouldn't be blogging but I needed a break, my exam is on the last day of exam season so I'm almost beyond the point of caring, I just want it over with now! I absolutely love this outfit, it features both of my Nasty Gal purchases from being in the States for Christmas, I am obsessed with this bag and this top is just so sassy. I wish Nasty Gal could just set up a store in the UK already, I'm dying to go to their LA shop one day.
Also, how fab are these coated Primark jeans?? They're almost identical in fit to the Topshop Joni jeans, just leather-look and around a third of the price.

Right, I best get back to revision. Wish me luck!

Jacket - Zara (similar here)
Boots - Primark
Bag - Primark
Shorts - Urban Outfitters
Belt - Goodwill

Yaaaay finally a new outfit post! Katie and I went to Notting Hill on Friday and shot four outfits so there's lots more content coming from now on. This is quite a simple outfit but it features some of my most worn items at the moment, and some absolute gems from Primark. 
My mum got me this coat for Christmas and it is the softest, cosiest jacket on the planet, perfect for the cold weather we're experiencing at the moment in the UK. I got this jumper from Brandy Melville when I was in the US and I am just so in love with their products. They're always great quality, super soft pieces that you can wear with anything. I've been wearing this jumper non-stop recently and it's just a great staple piece.

I'm currently knee-deep in revision so I feel pretty boring at the moment, I hate exam season and just want to get back into a routine with projects to work on. This time is always spent either trying to focus on revising or feeling guilty for not spending time revising...I can't wait until next Friday afternoon when I'll be freeeee.

Good luck to those of you who have exams too!

Tuesday 5 January 2016



I know I'm a bit late on that but I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things now, I'm currently home for the holidays but I've got outfit shoots planned Thursday and Friday and then by the weekend I'll be back in London so you can expect a return to the pastel backgrounds. I'm not going to lie, I missed blogging but I needed the time off - this whole world can get a bit overwhelming at times, especially alongside a full-time uni course that really threw me in at the deep end last term. I was forced to prioritise and that meant my blog has been a bit neglected recently. That said, that should be my hardest term of the year over now and hopefully that means I can power on through next term without another hiatus. 

The blogging industry can be quite an overwhelming place at times, it can be hard not to compare yourself to others and get yourself down when you don't feel like you're making enough progress. I've been getting that way quite a bit recently and it can really affect me, but looking through this summary of my year I can really see the progress I've made. My shoots have started to look a lot more professional and more how I always wanted them to look in my head, so hopefully it's onwards and upwards from here!
