Can We Do No Wrong?

 Jeans - Topshop
Shirt - H&M
Bra - Urban outfitters
Shoes - New Look
Bracelets - Vintage

I seem to be finding really good bargains these days, these shoes were just £8! It's amazing. I wanted some plain black heels and these were perfect! Strangely I'd never seen them full price haha.
I went out for dinner today with one of my oldest friends who -despite the fact live that she lives so close- I barely ever see because we're both so busy at different times so it was nice to have a catch up.
I'm just about to get ready to meet up with her from some drinks and a much needed night out.
Hope evryone has a nice weekend!

P.S. I look a bit ill in these photos because I was too lazy to put make up on :/

Sorry I haven't been posting alot, I've been pretty weighed down with studying and I've rediscovered my sanctuary in books. At the moment I'm reading The Lost Army by Valerio Massimo Manfredi. I'm more than half way through and I only started yesterday so I'm in the process of ordering another two books from Waterstones for free with the points I've collected <3
I wen't to Blackpool at the start of last week and it was amazing. Yay for rollercoasters and cheap drinks!
On Thursday night I went to a gig with a girl I met through modeling which was refreshing, interesting and, of course, fun! On Friday I sat in with my family and watched movies and on Saturday I went to a wildlife park near me with some friends since the weather is looking up :)
I also booked a promotional job in Edinburgh which will apparantly be covered by alot of press and newspapers and I'm not sure what it entails but it should be good none the less :)
Hopefully some more shoots soon though, I really want to build up my portfolio some more!
Hope everyone is having a lovely week!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post but alot has been going on and I've just been exhasuted!
I had two nabs and the second part of my geography prelim last week as well as two castings and fashion show :o
The fashion show was amazing; so many celebrities there! If I had known at the time I would have been terrified haha. The first casting was for a week of fashion shows Edinburgh - which I got!! :D I also went to a casting for a perfume advert so fingers crossed!
I have another casting on Wednesday for an agency in Paris and I'm so nervous! Hopefully it will go well though as it would be so amazing :)
This weekend I went out shopping and went a bit mad haha. The bag and red bra are from urban outfitters, the dress is from H&M and the boots are from New Look :) I also got the dress, bra and cardgian in the photos at the same time and I was desperate to wear them. ( I got a black jumpsuit from H&M too but I forgot to take a picture of it -_-)
Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and I'll try to strat updating more soon!

Loves Shattered Pride

Top- DIY
Shorts- Levis
Tights- Primark
Boots- Debenhams
Hat- Zara
Roasry- I'm not sure haha

Once I realised it had started raining I had to put my hair up and I got this bag a while ago so I thought I'd show that off too :)
Head Scarf - Turkish Market
Bag- New Look
I went to a cafe with an old friend today. It's been so long since I last saw her and it was amazing to catch up again; despite how long it's been we're still the same together :)
I bought these on my way home, I just couldn't resist spending what little money I had left haha
The tea cups were so sweet, I thought, and only a pound for two from Poundland, along with chocolate covred raisins (my one weakness!). I got this scarf and bag from New Look for only £2 each, I love the colours of both items as they're really rich and exotic looking :)

A few of the friends I see daily have been taking our friendship for granted, which I recognise can happen sometimes if you're with eachother so much but it's been getting me down and -as much as I feel guilty for saying it- I can't wait to leave school so that I can distance myself from the negativity. Which is a shame :/

This weekend I'm going up North to stay with some friends and go for a night out which should be really good! I also have a runway show in 11 days which I am so terrified for but excited at the same time! Hopefully I won't fall or anything haha.
Wish me luck!

I went shopping with my mum again yesterday and got these dresses from zara (only £5.99!) and Miss Selfridge (down from £42 to just ten!).

I'll post a few photos in it soon as you can't really see the lace detail on the high neck which is my favourite part of it :)
I had an alright weekend although last night I went out with some friends which turned into a bit of a disaster but you win some you lose some!

This is my hamster Dixie. I also have another hamster called Thunder but sadly she was asleep so I'll save her cute wee face for another day :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Spring in Her Step

Top- New Look
Shorts- Ubran Outfitter,Vintage
Bag- New Look
Belt- Zara
Heels- New Look

Sorry for the terrible images, I was in a rush and the light was dwindling :/
I thought I should upload a few outfit pictures as it's been a while. I love these shorts so much, they're so versatile and just so cute; my spring/summer essential without a doubt!
I know this isn't the best outfit but I just had to throw it together, and besides I was only going out for lunch and some shopping with my friend :)
As I've said quite alot recently school is really dragging me down lately but I'm trying to look at the brightside! Although it is getting progressively harder to find one as my exams creep up quicker and quicker but I'll try to keep this blog updated.
This is my new hair (I'm planning to post clearer pictures at the weekend) I love it so much, brightens up every outfit!

I wish I had been born in the 60s/early 70s! Music was so much better then!

Coco Rocha

Height- 5ft 10
Chest- 33
Waist- 25
Hips- 35
Dress (UK)- 8
Shoe-  7

This is my first Model Profile on possibly my favourite model, Coco Rocha.

She was spotted at an Irish Dancing Competition in 2002 and at the age of 16 in 2004 she began her modelling career. Since then she has been the face of many ad campiagns such as Rimmel, Chanel and Lanvin, walked the runway for a multitude of designer like Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney and even danced down the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier; as well as boasting covers and spreads with some of the most famous fashion magazines: Numero, Elle, Bazaar and, of course, Vogue to name a few.

Not only is she gorgeous but she also has the ability to bring an atmosphere and emotion to a photograph. She doesn't simply put her hand on her hip with a smile in her eyes, she really brings a character, and I think that she has one of, if not, the best variety of expressions and movements I have seen when it comes to the models I have studied. As well as being beautiful and talented she also has a great personality! With some of the most well-known designers and models phoning her just for a chat she must have something going for her which is clearly evident if you watch her interviews or backstage footage.

She also started a very controversial debate by refusing to loose weight during fashion week and even speaking out against the aneorexic craze at the time. Her standing up against these insane expecations contributed to many events putting a ban on exessively skinny models which, to me, is something I respect her greatly for.

Boasting a powerful and sexy walk with boundless amounts of presence as well as  good looks, personality and amazing skills infront of the camera, it's no wonder she's considered one of the worlds top models.
I love you Coco!

Sorry I haven't updated in a while guys, I've been extremely busy with school and prelims and haven't had a chance to put a decent outfit together! However they're finished now -hopefully having went well- and I will try and update again tomorrow or Wednesday :)

Fake Flowers

Hairband- DIY
Dress- Vintage
Thigh highs- Primark
Belt- Primark
Shoes- New Look
Jewlerry- Mostly vintage or passed down to me
I finally got around to making that DIY headband and I love the way it came out! It was really easy and it only took me about an hour so I definetly suggest making one to anyone who likes it.
I went to Ikea a few days ago and got this really cute retro clock for my wall, it's so lovely but I can't find anywhere to fit it!
Today I just went shopping with some friends in the horrible weather that we always seem to have and bought lilac hair dye and bleach so I should have lilac dip dye soon! :)

As much as I would like to update this blog every one or two days it's been quite difficult recently as I'm currently sitting my higher prelims so it should be alot more frequent after this week :)
Wish me luck!

Black Cherry

Dress - Topshop
Cardiagn - Primark
Pull-ups - Primark
Bag - ebay
Shoes - New Look
Jewellery - Topshop

I went shopping for some new furniture for my room yesterday and ended up only picking out a clock! Although I made up for it by buying things I didn't need (as you do) like this pretty floral shirt from zara for £4.99 and some fake flowers to make a headband out of.
I've seen a few D.I.Y headbands on here such as Autilas' feathered version which I love, and they all turned out beautifully so I thought I might aswell give it a go, I'll post the result tomorow haha.
I got some new lipstick too and I was desperate to wear it. It's called Black Cherry and it's by Revlon; turns out my mum wore that exact shade when she was my age! It didnt leave me desperate to slap on lipbalm like most lipsticks do and it wasn't too expensive, about £7 if I remember correctly, and I think the colour is gorgeous so I'd definetly recommend it!

Tonight I'm catching up with some friends for a few drinks to get a break from all this prelim and study stress!
What is everyone else doing tonight?

Shopping With Mum

bralet-river island
shoes-new look

Today I went with my mum to get her hair done followed by some shopping. I picked up a bikini and sunglasses from primark and some heels from new look all for just £16! Pretty pleased with myself :)
Since then I've just been helping to decorate and studying when I can; still not heard from uni so I have very little motivation at the moment!
On a weirder note, I got a nice slouchy cardigan from a vintage store in glasgow last week and my mums fairly convinced that I brought a ghost with it. I'll just see how that pans out... haha

Dislike: Has anyone else heard of some new street light plan in the UK? Apparantly there are plans being made to either dim or completely switch off street lights in certain areas after 12am. I don't know about you guys but I really don't fancy walking home in the pitch dark, heels and torch in hand at 3 in the morning :/

Like: I can't stop listening to White Lies at the moment, probably the last one to jump on the band wagon but hey ho :)

What has everyone else been dancing away to?

The New Guy

I am completely new to the whole blogging thing but I was following so many I thought I might aswell give it a go!
I love fashion and I am currently waiting to here back on UCAS wether I have recieved a place on a fashion business course or not: fingers crossed!
My main goal would be to become a fashion journalist or designer and I'm doing some modelling on the side of my studies right now so this is very a fashion orientated blog for me :)
I'll be posting my thoughts on the latest fashion, some outfits and maybe a weekly model or designer profile, who knows!
Right now I just want to say how much I want to dip dye my hair lilac!
