Wow! The daunting day has finally arrived… I have stepped up into the world of Youtube. For many reasons I have been toying with the idea of making video content for ” A London Lookbook” but with the help of my friend Ellie Girling (who you will meet in a blog post soon!) I have my winter fashion staples: Continue reading
What feels like only a few days since the turn of the new year, we are now greeted with a new month. My mind cannot comprehend with the idea of the first month of 2016 being over…
The month of mantras and resolutions, and for once I have actually stuck to mine. Maybe.. it’s the age of maturity, have I finally blossomed into a mature woman? I use the word blossom, my parents favour the idea of me being abducted by aliens.
I have managed to read some books this month, discovering new loves – or you could say binging on certain series on Netflix and Amazon Prime. I have also hit the January sales HARD this month. A spending ban is definitely in order this February.
“You want to work in fashion?”
“Do you realise it’s such a touch industry to get into?”
“It’s all about connections”
“Oh so you want to design clothes”
“You’ve watched Devil Wears Prada though? It looks brutal…”
You know that look, that sarcastic and questioning tone you get from strangers, friends and family. Instead of snapping at them you just bite your tongue instead. I don’t understand how someone can shut someone’s dream like that. I mean, it’s good to think realistic at times but then again I am a big believer in following your dreams!

— Answer is no
Like myself, you are probably here because you want to work in fashion. You will understand the pain of trying to prove your point to some very opinionated people. It maybe even coming to university season. For whatever reason, I am here to help in a personal and understanding way:
Culottes are totally my new IT item not only do they scream androgynous & Parisian chic vibes they are uber comfy. I’m talking consuming a large Pizza Hut cheesy bites pizza and they still look flattering, no “so when are you expecting?” Perfect for over, but definitely necessary indulgence at Christmas.
Top & Trousers – Zara
Bag- Urban Outfitters (similar here)
Shoes – New Look
Let’s rewind to January 2015. I was quite the make – up… well beauty novice. Prime example being that I used a matte foundation when I have dry skin.
I didn’t use products that would help warm my face and give it that extra umph. It’s so bizarre looking back over the year, I cannot think about commencing with my routine without a highlighter or primer.
I often got told “You look tired” or “Are you ill?” – No, unfortunately I wasn’t aware of what products emphasize my features and qualities.
Let’s get the ball rollin’ and discuss my make-up favourites of 2015.
