In with the new

Fashion, My photography

Hello again. I am so jealous of everyone going to Glastonbury! I could not stop setting myself up for disappointment this year where Glastonbury tickets were concerned. Firstly I tried to get one when they first went on sale, ignoring the fact our internet connection in Southampton was the slowest ever. I didn’t get a ticket. That was bad enough, but then I decided I was going to give it a shot at the resale. That might have been fine but I quickly realised I couldn’t afford it and sort of half tried to get one, knowing that if I did I would be EXTREMELY poor. I didn’t get one again… which I was sort of glad about. After that I entered a couple of competitions…. it didn’t happen.

Oh well!

I’ve just spent the last of those Topshop vouchers finally 🙂

I’ve just moved out properly from my house in Southampton. This means I have a ton of crap that I don’t know whether I want or not lying around my room. Still, it’s looking a lot better than it did after I had a little revamp.

Polka dot shirts make things better

Fashion, My photography

So the weather has actually been okay! It’s been pretty hot in Bristol today.

My Mum and Dad have left me and my sister for Portugal this week. Yes, I am jealous. At least it isn’t raining here though, although Portugal is meant to be about 30 degrees. English summer will always be average compared to the rest of Europe (and most of the world)…. but I really don’t mind, just as long as it doesn’t rain!

Anyway, enough weather talk. My parents also gave me some Topshop vouchers as a finishing university present. Yay! For me this is the perfect present because I actually won’t be able to afford to buy clothes for myself for a very long time. I have so many things I have to save up for and I haven’t even got a job yet! Okay, I say this but I usually just buy clothes anyway even though I shouldn’t, don’t we all? So, today I went in to town and spent almost all of it.

Tiger dresses and fashion lusting

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

As I write this I am hungry. What shall I eat? I’m trying to cut down on cheese, as I do tend to put it in everything, although I could do worse. Apparently dairy can make you more intelligent, because it has Iodine in it. So that’s good I suppose. I’ll hold on to that fact.

At the moment I’m looking for a full time job, and there doesn’t seem to be any that provide more than an 8 or 16 hour contract a week. Either that or they’re all temporary! Frustration.

Putting the dairy and job stuff aside, here’s some fashion for you! This is one of my favourite dresses from Romwe and my all time favourite shoes from Underground.

The lip stick is from Topshop and the shade is called ‘Arcade’.

I have been lusting after some rings from www.emptycasket.com. Empty casket (if you don’t already know) is an online jewellery store, everything is hand made with a ‘grungey vibe’. Here are some of my favourites….

Rings £18

Necklace £10

Kitty ring £5

Style inspo, Lana Del Rey and Inez and Vinoodh

Yet another post I am doing in the middle of the night. I have always found it easier to get inspired in the evenings 🙂

Just thought I would show you some of the things a bought this week. I didn’t spend a crazy amount, and I think I did quite well! I always forget how good H&M is, and how affordable the clothes normally are.

Shoes £40 from Urban Outfitters, Skirt £14.99 from H&M and T-shirt £7 also from H&M

Yes! The shoes I posted about previously were £40, reduced from £119. I went to the Urban Outfitters in Bristol, completely forgot about the shoes because I decided I was never going to find them cheap enough. How happy was I to find them in a size 6 (last ones left!) and not £70 but now £40!? It was definitely meant to be. I am however a size 5, but they fit well enough.

Me, Wearing them 🙂

Have you seen the Lana Del Rey for H&M adverts? The angora jumpers look so lovely…

She is beautiful. The photographs are shot by Inez and Vinoodh, a male and female duo from Amsterdam. The pair have been shooting together for almost two decades and have shot campaigns for Balmain, Chloe, Dior, Gucci and many many more. They recently shot one of the five videos for Lady Gaga’s single ‘ You and I‘.

Here are some more amazing photographs they have taken…

Love the mixture of drawings and photography

Mila Kunis

Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger

There are so many more, go and check out their website http://inezandvinoodh.com

I’m off to get some sleep, hope you enjoyed reading this post!

Why I need a job….

Fashion

I am currently completely stripped of any money in my account or purse… or even hiding behind my sofa. I have been lusting after to many clothes and to many hairstyles… to many festival tickets!

1. I would quite like to die my hair this colour or at least a similar colour and AT LEAST a lot lighter than it is now. It also needs cutting so bad… a good 3 inches off I think.

2. I really would like to go to Reading festival this year. REALLY would like to. The Black Keys, Azealia Banks, Justice, The Cure, Foo Fighters, SBTRKT… etc. Please god make this happen, if I don’t do anything else with my life this summer… please.

3. Mainly clothes… lots of clothes. I have zero summer clothes at the moment, nothing brighter than grey in my wardrobe. I would really to own something from this season please.

Here’s an outfit I put together all from Topshop…

This dress is gorgeous from Urban Outfitters…

AND these dungarees from Nasty Gal. I really wish they had somewhere based in the UK as well… because the postage is quite expensive.

Sorry for not posting in while, more posts and more photography coming soon…
