PLTsorority







Shoes-Superga

Happy Happy Wednesday,

I've spent my Wednesday hiding from the Edinburgh rain while shooting these images with Lewis and tidying my room (long overdue). 
However I have had some exciting news recently, I've been asked to be part of the PLTsorority crew which means I'll be getting loads of goodies, event invites and a cheeky discount code for anyone that wants it! I'm over the moon to be working with Prettylittlething and I'm so excited for what this year has to bring. 
After growing up being obsessed with 80's american coming of age movies I'm fulfilling my dream of being a sorority gal. 

I'm head to toe Prettylittlething (obvs) and I'm suddenly obsessed with wearing red, I never thought it suited me before but something about going blonde has changed my mind. These jeans are quickly becoming one of my fave pairs and they fit like a glove. 

Off to go do the uni work I've been putting off due to binge watching Game of Thrones, till next time.

I'm still addicted to buying jackets

Top- Missguided
Trousers- Depop Hannahwah
Jacket- Prettylittlething
Shoes- Superga

My favourite thing to buy is and always has been, a good jacket. My wardrobe is full to the brim of jackets, some really random ones and most massively too big for me but I wear them all the same. 
I couldn't resist this absolute killer jacket from Prettylittlething even though I'm as broke as ever. It'll look fab in Amsterdam over the super extra outfits that I'm planning.

I was at the at the noisy girls club event recently which was so much fun, it was in Edinburgh and it was basically an event for creatives to network. There were talks, workshops and stalls and I picked up these trousers from Hannahwahs stall. They fit like a glove and I'm a bit obsessed with them at the minute. Check out her depop she has some class pieces!  

At least shooting these images made me feel better about not doing any uni work the past few days. Really need to keep on top of it but the girls and I went out last night so we'll be recovering for a week due to our old age. We've turned into OAPs going to bed at 10 and rarely going out now that we're in third year.

Autumn Sun

Happy Thursday!

This week has flown by, just as every week seems to be these days. In preparation for Autumn I've started dressing for the colder weather, and Edinburgh is already freezing. You'd think I'd have grown out of wearing crop tops, but nope. If I buy a normal length top you'll find me either cutting it in half or knotting it. Hilariously enough I've still managed to find a crop top that is still suitable for Autumn. I'm obsessed with this shaggy crop jumper from Prettylittlething almost as much as my yellow shag cardigan, also from PLT.

These jeans are also from PLT and surprisingly enough they fit me like a glove and will be perfect for my trips to London and Amsterdam that I have coming up, the ring detail is beauts mc goots.

First time for everything





In my 21 years of living, the past maybe 6 or 7 I've spent wearing makeup. You'd think that over the years I would have a decent skin care regime going on.  Until Nu Skin came into my life I literally used cheap makeup wipes and micellar water the odd time, and I mean the odd time. The thought of taking my make up off fills me with dread most of the time, however I always do take it off because falling asleep with it on is the actual FEAR.

Anyway, Nu Skin. Nu Skin have saved my skin. I've been using the ageLOC transformation kit which includes a cleanse and toner, future serum, radiant day and transforming night. This box of heaven has everything I could need to kick my skincare regime into gear. I have normal to dry skin and after using the future serum I can't believe I ever lived without it, I normally put it on before my makeup after I've cleansed and it's a great base/primer for my foundation.
At lost village festival I was dishing out these goodies every morning to my friends to help our skin recover from the night before (the cleanser also helped with the excessive amount of glitter).

I've also been using the agelOC Tru Face Essence  duet and I can't even explain how amazing it is. When i first tried it I ran into my flatmates room to make her put it on.  It's for the neck and d├ęcolletage so I was already sold because I read years ago that your neck shows your age because people often forget to moisturise. Anyway, it combines two formulas to limit the loss of elasticity to promote contouring and visibly lift and soften the skin. it  I can only describe it as a gel like serum that is what I imagine collagen to feel like, its amazing. 

I'm now 100% converted to looking after my skin, long may it last.

Brixton Village









I’ve made no secret of my dislike for London in the past but my opinion has changed ever so slightly. The only times I've gone to London I went alone for events, got incredibly lost and felt very overwhelmed which is something I don’t often feel. Due to these experiences London has left a bad taste in my mouth. However, I was recently in London with the girls to do research for uni while fashion week was on. We only stayed for one night and amongst all the street style, exhibition visits and accidentally attending a Simone Rocha event we managed some down time too. Adele and I stayed with a friend of mine who lives in Brixton. While we were walking from Chris’ flat to the station we stumbled upon Brixton village which was absolutely gorgeous and super indie. We went for breakfast at ….. Adele had pancakes, said they were the best she's ever had and she's eaten a lot of pancakes and i had a full english which was 100% the fanciest full english I've ever had. 

We had a wander around the independent stores that we open before we sadly had to leave and continue on with exhibition visits for uni. I’ll be heading back to London at the end of October with Lewis for a Nu Skin event which I’m really excited about and I’m also, for once, excited to visit London again.

The images above show exactly what we've been doing for the last week, painting each others faces, again for uni. We have to do 6 makeup looks each and have been running about the flat like mad women organising and shooting the images. you haven't lived until you’re peeling leotard print duct tape off your body in the shower at 1am or scraping lip gloss out of your brows. Third year is definitely upon us but we’re helping each other out through the breakdowns as always. We’ve realised that this time next year we’ll be in our final year and will only have one left year in our beautiful flat. This fills me with sadness so we’re making the most of it while we have it before we have to do grown up things like pay council tax and sort out lives out.
