Super Busy

16 Feb

I haven’t posted in almost two weeks. I have been really busy, not with school just going out. I have recently been focusing a lot on my portfolio as I am going to a portfolio advice day this Saturday. Has anybody else been to one? I am really scared as I am not sure what to expect or what they will say about my work. It is Fashion Design I am applying for and funnily enough I can’t sew. I went to the GSA open day and they said they didn’t want you to know as they would rather teach you professionally rather than you picking up bad habits so hopefully I will be okay. Is anybody else in this situation?

I haven’t done any outfit posts in so long as most of what I have been wearing has just been flung on quickly to go over to my friends or just to go out. I have been on a spending ban for the past week and hope to keep this up until my 18th birthday on the 12th March! On the 15th March I am going to Berlin for my Birthday and I am super excited. My parents asked if I would prefer a new lens or a nice piece of jewellery for my Birthday, what do you think I should go for??

Have a nice night x

Shoes and Dress: Topshop

I love all of these items but I am also on the search for a beaded peter pan collar. If anybody knows of one please let me know!  If I get the dress I was planning to pair it with a leather jacket and a pair of black suede wedges. This way it will toughen it up a bit rather than looking extremely girly. I also like these shoes in the black but I think this pink/peach colour is more suitable for the spring/summer. Also looking for a new mascara the now, I ordered a Benefit Bad Gal one off of Ebay which turned out to be a fake, hate when that happens! I was planning to try the Soap and Glory mascara. Also on the look out for an eyebrow kit. I am considering Benefit but I don’t think I can handle spending that much money on something so small. It’s three for two on Bourjois cosmetics at the moment which is very tempting.

I have been very lazy this morning, just lying in my bed reading blogs and eating crisps. I do plan on getting changed at some point aslong as everyone else has stopped studying and has decided they are up for doing something. I should really be working on my portfolio but I am just not in the mood for drawing at the moment. Hope everyone has a nice weekend ahead of them!

Things I currently love…

2 Feb

You Me At Six, Bon Iver, Anything Floral/Vintage looking and Peter Pan collar’s. (All images from Google)

You Me At Six have been my favourite band since I was about fourteen Most of their fans are probably around the age of fourteen to sixteen but they are a band I am sure I will always love. I also currently love BooHoo‘s new in clothing, They have a navy coloured chiffon dress with a lace collar which I have my eye on. I seem to have an obsession with anything that is a peach/nude colour, this could be taking over my love for burgundy! Nails seem to be a popular thing to focus on now, I tend to use models own or barry m then I have a couple of sparkly nail varnishes I put over them. 

Make up is something that I love but I wouldn’t say I am an expert. For me right now I always use Dainty Doll Foundation. I am extremely pale and this is the only foundation I have ever found to suit my skin colour. I also really recommend Topshop’s lip and cheek stain and Benefit’s High Beam, they both work really well and give a lovely glow to my face. I need a big shoulder bag, I was planning to go into town today since my Prelims are over but everyone else still have theirs and I feel a bit weird going shopping myself. If it’s the only way I can  go then I guess I will need to. Does anybody else hate going shopping themselves?

I have been so busy trying to study that I haven’t had time to get any pictures up. I feel bad about the lack of posting but I promise it is going to start back up again after Wednesday. I ordered a peach chiffon shirt off of Republic and it was exactly what I have been looking for, the best thing was it was only ten pounds in the sale. I have my English exam tomorrow and I am petrified, I haven’t even learned all of my quotes yet. Anybody else leave their studying until last minute? Due to my lack of studying I notice that I shop online a lot more and tempt myself far too much. I had a Christmas job over the past couple months but I know I should be saving this money and not be spending it on clothes when that is the last thing I need.

Currently working on a sketch book to go along with my portfolio. I have no idea of what I should really be putting into it. I am applying for Fashion design but I guess they also want to see a range of different topics. Does anybody have any idea of what I should be including into my sketchbook and portfolio?

I would have loved to have been able to apply for Glasgow School of Art but unfortunately I doubt I would make the grade requirements and my work would probably not have met their standards. They have thousands of talented people who apply and only around thirty people get into each course, boo! 😦 I am curious if anyone went to Art school to study Fashion or Photography? If you happen to read my post leave a comment please, I am very interested in learning what is involved 🙂 Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’m away back to try and study.

 

Latest Wants…

Shirt and Playsuit: Urban Outfitters

Had a very bad day, caught the cold so my nose won’t stop running and I feel so tired so I can’t study. I hate when I don’t study as I feel guilty considering my prelims are only four days away. The good part was that I got an email from Robert Gordon University mentioning that they have a Portfolio advice day in a few weeks so I plan to make a three hour drive up there with my Mum. I love all the pastel colours coming into the shops the now, specifically the pinks and purples. I am also a very big fan of the grunge look and hope to find some lovely pieces in Topshop at any point. I found this shirt in Urban Outfitters and I am in love with it as I love bugundy and also this playsuit. I seem to be attracted to anything velvet at the moment and I love the lace detail at the top.

Busy days.

24 Jan

I have been extremely busy recently as I have prelims coming up. Most of my time has been spent studying. I did manage to go around the shops during the weekend and picked up some nice things which I will post up when I have more time. I found a nude shirt/dress on Missguided.com and I have been searching for one exactly like it. Unfortunately they don’t have it in my size so I will need to wait and see if they have more stock coming in. I ordered Benefit’s High Beam last week and it came today so I will also post about it once I have used it. I am super excited for Wednesday 1st February as that is my last prelim and it means I can relax for a couple of weeks. I am hoping to make a trip to Edinurgh while I am off. I love Edinburgh as everything is so close by and the shops seem to sell a better variety. Here’s the  link for the shirt/dress that I spotted incase others are interested or could show me a similar one for a cheaper price? http://www.missguided.co.uk/jolsie-sheer-belted-shirt-dress-4

I have recently started using Topshop’s lip and cheek stain. I have extremely pale skin so I always think any sort of blusher makes me look like a clown but this one matches my skin perfectly and isn’t too bright. It’s a lovely pink colour and I think it would suit any skin tone especially the very fair skinned. I am wanting to start focusing more on my eyebrows. I haven’t bothered with them much, I pluck them but not very often as it takes a lot of effort. Could anyone recommend specific tweezers or an eyebrow kit that would be great to use?

Hope everyone has a lovely week and I will post again soon!

Lazy days in wonderland.

14 Jan

Had an extremely lazy day, sitting about my house and watching tv. I am currently taking part in a Higher Photography course in school and managed to get some pictures today. My theme is youth culture in fashion. I planned to go for a pretty/fairytale theme. I wanted it to look quite enchanted but the lighting didn’t quite turn out as I hoped. If anyone would care to give me tips and ideas for my pictures it would be muh appreciated! My wedges that I ordered arrived today and I am in love with them and can not wait to wear them 🙂 I have my eye on a dress at boohoo.com. It’s in the sale and it’s going for £10 which is far too tempting. Maybe when I get payed on Friday… Will keep posted at a later date and please take a look at my pictures, thank you!  😀
