Country Walks

Even though I love a hectic life living in London, one of my favourite things is to take a break and go up North to visit my family. Luckily I have family up by Leicester, which is handy for me to get away.

Hope you've all enjoyed your weekends.

Hello! Here's a few of my favourite blog posts recently. I'm loving the typical wintery things...layering, bold lips and yummy warm drinks/food. Working doing social media on a regular basis at work is a bonus for me, because I love looking through blogs. It's basically doing most of the things I do at home, yet doing it professionally.

Hope you all have a nice ending to your weeks!

Beauty Haul

For the next week I'm up north in Leicester before I start work back in London doing fashion PR.
Thought I would pick up a few things while I was getting some clothes for work. Love this blusher it's a great colour and goes well with my Bourjois foundation. The jewellery is ideal for winter - being cold colours because most of my accessories are warm colours so I thought it would be nice to have these options.

Have a nice weekend!

Backpacking Around Australia

I'm not a typical girl I would expect to love travelling as much as I did. I normally have a ton of clothes and previously I would pack a suitcase just for a weekend away, but travelling has taught me to appreciate all the things I took for advantage back at home.
Living out of a backpack has been annoying at times but I would never think of backpacking as a difficult experience because of the amazing chances to see and experience new things which make you not even care about small things like that.
Getting away from a routine back where you live can be very refreshing and eye opening. I was able to move on and break up my time in college and work, which has now made me excited to work and made my thoughts clearer on the career path I want to pursue.
I would recommend anyone with the opportunity to go travelling to do it. Even if you can't find other people to go with, a lot of travellers I met (most of them actually) travelled alone and found it fine as everyone is really friendly so you make friends quickly! 

Now as I'm heading home I'm excited to fix my camera and start focusing on improving my blog, while I also pursue a career in fashion.

"To travel is to take a journey into yourself"
"Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home"
"Wherever you go, go with all your heart"
"No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow"

Hope you guys have a nice weekend!

Latest Love

H&M's collaboration with Alexander Wang to make a sporty, modern collection has released the lookbook and it has been my love of the week. I love sporty clothing and think all the clothes in this collection will be very popular because of their trendy, minimalistic quality. I'm very excited for this collection to hit stores on November 6th to see the response!

New Camera - New Scenary

Finally having a working camera was the best feeling all last week, until I realised my USB connector was faulty! So I have had to wait to properly use my camera, which for me with not much patience, has been horrible. Over the past few days, I travelled up north from my usual base down south in London. I went to Leicester where my mum lives and found some perfect places to finally use my camera. 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I will post a updated room tour post on Wednesday.

Design Studios in Asheville

Today I visited about 7 different design studios around Asheville, including jewellery, textiles, ceramics and fine art. As I have just finished being in full time education, taking my A-levels, I'm hoping to start a portfolio/styling book with inspiration I get while I go travelling. The first stop of my travels was America, therefore this will be my introduction page of things that have inspired through colour/texture. I'll start posting finished pages later into summer for you guys to see. Let me know if you want any names of artist if you're interested in their work, a lot of them had Etsy pages I could try to find to link for you. Here are just a few of my favourite pieces I saw today, that I thought I might share.

Latest Love

My absolute favourite dress at the BAFTA was Tanya Burr's. She somehow managed to get listed for worst dressed, which I do not understand! I think her Matthew Williamson dress was lovely, especially paired with his light blue YSL shoes. Honestly, I wouldn't fault anything about her outfit.

Have a nice week!

Current Favourites #2

Moonbright is an online jewellery store, that have silver/threaded bracelets/anklets and necklaces. They are all really affordable and really pretty, I have just ordered pretty much everything from the site, so I will review and take pictures for you guys when they arrive! Each piece is only around £4!

Another new obsession of mine this month is Miley Cyrus's Bangerz Album. I went to go see her live at the O2 this week and it was such a good night, it made me love her songs even more. I had the pleasure of meeting Caspar Lee, Joe Sugg and Ryan Beatty at the concert who were all lovely.

Another major splurge of mine this week was on Fashion Union which I had never ordered from. I bought A LOT of summery pieces so I will add that into my haul I should have up by the end of next week.

Hope you have all had a lovely week!
