I am extremely excited about Glastonbury. This year I managed to get a ticket with my boyfriend, I think the main reason was having good internet this time. I’ve been three times before, twice it rained a lot and the other time the temperature was at a record high! I was there the year the whole place got flooded, it was still awesome though.
I took these pictures the other day. The sunglasses are from Topshop, I love them so much! I really like the 60’s style and the colour is luscious. I thought I’d clash the colours a bit with a bright blue nail polish (Chanel Bel-Argus, £1.50 from a charity shop!) and a red lipstick from Topshop.
Summer’s nearly here!
Well, the weather is pretty horrific at the moment. Flooding, 80 mph winds and it’s pretty cold to top it off. My room is an absolute ice cavern because the window is a poor excuse for a window and my bed is cleverly placed right in front of the radiator, therefore blocking much of the heat that would otherwise be heating the entire room. I should probably do something about that.
Me and my boyfriend braved the weather for a day out at Weston Super Mare on Sunday, a seaside town near Bristol. I hadn’t been to Weston since I was very young, so this was a nice trip down memory lane. I really do enjoy beaches when its cold and windy, there’s something really moody and emotional about it.
We went to this AMAZING chip shop called Papas http://www.papasukltd.com/ and it was seriously amazing. I’m a veggie so I didn’t have the cod but they did these insane Battered garlic mushrooms.
I definitely recommend it.
At the moment things are a bit tight with money, so I have less and less cash to spend on clothes etc. However, I went to Taunton yesterday to visit my Nana and we ended up in Topshop. I found these silver shoes for £7! Absolute bargain, I couldn’t say no. Along with that I bought a pack of silver and gold rings that were in the sale, and it all came to £10.50 which I didn’t feel too guilty about.

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.
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.
… and here’s my cat looking cute
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.

I love this shirt!!! I’m so pleased with my purchases.
Until next time 🙂
Hello! I’m in an excited mood at the moment but also a stressful one… I think its important to have a certain amount of stress in your life otherwise its all pretty mundane.
I’m back at uni and we already have so much work to do. I’m currently working on a 6 week project on street style in London. We have to choose an area of London that’s trendy and interesting, then go and photograph people there. I’m trying to visit Shoreditch this coming Wednesday but I think the weather might let me down. This rain is constant over here in England!
Here are some interesting concepts of different street styles and how its photographed.
Japanese street style
It’s become an interest to everyone, even people that don’t have a specific interest in fashion. The Japanese street style is so unique, and sort of surreal. Pat Lyttle’s book ‘Japanese street style’ is available on Amazon as a paperback.
Most people who surf fashion Blogs will have heard of this well known street style photographer. Scott Schuman’s work has also been featured in magazines like GQ and Italian Vogue, along with ad campaigns for DKNY, Gant etc. The way he captures people is really interesting and his collection of images are all so diverse there’s a style for everyone.
If your not already following them on tumblr or facebook then you definitely should do! I’m sure you are… So many well dressed people, so much clothing envy!
I also have a dissertation idea! So far, I want to do a fashion film inspired by Alfred Hitchcocks ‘The Birds’.
And I cannot wait for the BBC 2 film depicting the manipulative nature of Alfred Hitchcock’s relationship with actress Tippi Hedren. Sienna Miller plays Tippi. I’m not sure when its on but it sounds so interesting. The film is said to suggest Hitchcock blackmailed her into having sex with him by threatening her career.
Thanks for reading! I’ll be updating the blog with progress on my projects shortly. As always any thoughts and comments are very welcome.
I love looking at the posts from Topshop on tumblr. I would re-blog everything but that would be wrong. This silver jacket is awesome, and unfortunately i’m not sure where it’s from but i’m sure there are a lot of similar ones on the high street! Like this one… from asos.com!
Also I saw this shirt in Zara and fell in love with it on Saturday…
Look at that print!!!!!!!
Here are some more lovely things… enjoy!

The various printed fabric trends at the moment are so exciting, they have to be my favorite trend this year. So much variation and colour! From paisley to photo based prints, there is something for everyone.
I am basing my 2nd year photography project around this trend because of the freedom I think this trend gives, its so broad! Here are some images that have inspired me…
