Week #47

Toile shoot for the Clothes Show | Santa's grotto | Poorly day | Stir fry | Oh Christmas tree | Studio fun with flowers | Catching Fire! | Sunday lunch with my little puddings

I'm just about rounding of my week with 10 minutes to spare. That means it's 10 minutes until I can buy One Direction's new album. YES! After a fun filled week of photoshoots, a cinema date night and lots of christmasy treats I'm ready for my bed. A few poorly days earlier in the week didn't even put a damper on it but I'm all better now after a course of antibiotics. I can sense my weeks are going to be lots more fun towards the run up to Christmas. Sweet dreams!

Week #46

Another Real Techniques brush to my collection | Cat from Topman | Shooting for the Clothes Show | Feast for my sisters birthday | Borrowing boyfriends clothes | Sparkly socks Friday

I've been quiet this week on the blogging front, I had a tutorial on Monday and realised my dissertation AND one of my projects is in this side of Christmas. That's about 4 weeks time. Scary. I am involved in an exciting project with the fashion students and the Clothes Show Live though which will sit well alongside my studio project. We did a styling shoot on Tuesday which was just shots of accessories and tomorrow we've got a shoot with the clothing before the big shoot next week. I'll definitely try getting these photos up at some point to share and I'll be photographing my day at the Clothes Show in December.

Week #45

Wednesday night's outfit | Lusting after H&M's underwear | Got myself a honeycomb hot chocolate | Friday night cocktails | Little sister's birthday present

Can anyone else sense that first sparkle of christmas excitement in the air? The nights are dark, the air is cold and all the best Christmas ads were on the telly last night. It's so exciting! Oh and Costa's christmas drinks are back. No biggie. But seriously if you haven't tried a honeycomb hot chocolate please do, and make sure you have it with cream and edible stars.You won't regret it.

Driving Cadillacs In Our Dreams

H&M fur coat
Topshop bowler hat (similar here)
Primark clutch
River Island necklace

I'm so stupidly in love with this dress it's unreal. I wanted the same one that was on Missguided over the summer, but I went on holiday and they were never to be seen again. I did a google search for something like 'Coral Aztec Shift Dress' a few weeks ago and the Want That Trend website was the top result. I've never bought from them before or admittedly ever even heard of them but the delivery was quick (though not as cheap as Missguided). Still I can't fault them or the dress. It's a lovely fabric which isn't what I expected it to be and I can't wait until next summer to go bear legged with sandals. Perfect!

Fluffy jumper

Primark Jumper
Primark necklace

Excuse these awful photos. I've really struggled lately with getting decent outfit photos. Being a photography student doesn't help, I'm always picking out tiny flaws and waiting for perfect lighting, which given the clocks changing and horrendous weather it seems hard to come by. I spent half an hour squelching around in the mud to achieve these. Maybe I need to rethink my backdrop but I just love the bricks and can't bear to shoot indoors. Anddd, i'm done.

I absolutely love wearing my new fluffy jumper from Primark, I originally bought a size 10 but decided on the oversized look and swapped it for a 12. I paired it with my pretty little baroque skirt and coat jacket from H&M which I swear I never take off.

Week #44

Anniversary flowers | Boulle snuggles | His silly nose | Save the Blow Dry shower cap - review soon! | My new dress

Me and Daniel celebrated out year anniversary on Monday. If your a long time reader of this blog, you'll know we were together when we were 16 but spent 18 months apart before reuniting last years. We weren't actually sure when we "officially" got back together so just picked a date at the end of October. He arrived home with a lovely bouquet of flowers and I arrived home for cuddles with puss cat.

My timetable at uni has eased of a great amount this week which I'm so grateful for, I admittedly scheduled in my own half term since all my sisters were off from school and college so project work has been very lax, but back to it tomorrow! I've also got an exciting project with some other girls on my course photographing a collection for the fashion students to be displayed at the Clothes Show at the beginning of December. It all seems to be go go go this time of year!
