Making a Cat

When you take creative classes there are a lot of fellow class mates around you that want your help.

A few of the guys have been making short films and somehow I’ve wound up being their makeup artist. I’m not a make up artist, not do I pretend to be. I’ve told the guys this on numerous occasions but apparently they have faith in me to do the job.

I was given a brief of, face paint, black and white and a domestic cat ( that was pretty much it) I’m most definitely the sort of person that wants all of the details about everything before I do something. I love to ask questions.

I can’t take credit for the costume. Here is my guinea pig, I mean Dan!

All this face paint was for a music video, which is very cool and very scary. Having to work for other people is very stressful but super exciting. I spent the day watching the production of the shoot unfold, and I loved it.

My research consisted of watching every cat makeup tutorial i could get my hands on and looking at black and white cats.

Birthday Style

As of Wednesday i’m now 22, it’ been the most amazing 21 years and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I love this outfit because it incorporates all the things I love to wear, grey, denim and a leather jacket. Muted grey tones are perfect for me in winter. Having pretty much no tan i’ve found it suites my skin tone much better, and of course my favourite popcorn necklace.

I wore

jeans – New Look

top – Zara

boots – Just Fab

leather jacket – New Look

pop corn necklace – Glenda Lopez it’s in the sale (via Wolf & Badger)

hope you enjoyed reading.

Shooting with Light

I’ve always wanted to take photography classes and since my course allows that I’ve fallen in love with photography. I try and think about what I’ve learnt in class and recreate that on this blog (my old site was full of bad photos)

On this rare occasion I found myself on the other side of the lens, in-front of the class ( it’s quite intimidating having 15/20 people looking at you)

Working out some interesting lighting techniques was so interesting. I think the shots of me are hilarious because I never look this nervous having my photo taken.

What I really liked about the photos is the focus on my jacket, all the details are highlighted by shadow and light. The green being off set against my hair and matching my eyes.

I want to create photos like these more often for my blog. Don’t they look so much more interesting!?

Hope you enjoyed reading,

Amelia, XO

Jacket – Red Herring

Dress – Topshop

Black and White Knit Dress

DSCN1253

I never thought I’d wear a knitted dress, I always thought I had the wrong body shape for it. But when I tried this Topshop number on I fell in love. And it’s one of the trends for ss/16!! DSCN1245 DSCN1246 DSCN1247 DSCN1249 DSCN1250 DSCN1251 DSCN1252

I’ve dressed this knit up with a pair of knee high black boots and some serious straight hair. But this dress would look equally as good with a high pony tail, ballet flats and bare legs.

I WORE

Knit Dress – Topshop ( in the sale)

Leggings – Zara

Boots – ( so old, but these)

Lipstick – No 7

Christmas on Instagram

I’ve been posting on Instagram all over Christmas, this year has been the busiest year I’ve had in quite a while. Seeing so much family, going to parties I’ve barley had time to blog.

Christmas Eve

Welcome to my quick Christmas eve post. I’ve decided to post on christmas day because you can get a little bored watching endless christmas tv, I know I do. So while I watch tv and have some free time while my parents go get more of my family,  I’d share with you some Christmas moments. DSCN1175 DSCN1177 DSCN1178 DSCN1181

It’s really save to say that this Christmas we went all out for the table. We lit the scene with a fairy light clad white tree adorned with Swarovski snowflakes; my dad buys my mum their new snowflake every year, as a little tradition, icicles and pearl beads. ( we know it’s crazy, but it’s Christmas)

There was no need for ice-breakers but lets be honest we love to play around and have a laugh.DSCN1187 DSCN1176 DSCN1184 DSCN1191 DSCN1183

we rounded up the day with a little (very competitive) game of Cranium. Ofcourse my team won!!

I hope you enjoyed this little look at how we spent out Christmas eve/Christmas day.

Checked Dress at Star Wars

DSCN1127 DSCN1128 DSCN1130 DSCN1131 DSCN1132 DSCN1133 DSCN1134 DSCN1137 DSCN1138 DSCN1140

This is what I wore to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. i don’t really have any thoughts about it yet, I enjoyed the film and didn’t once think ‘ this is one long film’. So I guess I liked it and am glad I went. I’m not a film critic, so I’ll leave it there.

I’ve finally taught myself how to curl my hair ( ‘but you  hair is curly’ i hear you cry) When I try to curl my hair no matter that I try the curls never stay in, until now. I’ve found a way for me to have defined curls and have them last, it’s only taken me 21 years!

I wore

jacket –Baum und Pferdgarten

dress –Zara

boots –Topshop

lipstick – Rimmel Kate Moss

Decorating for Christmas

Every year at Christmas time mum and I set about decorating the house, we both love colour so can’t really get away with having a white christmas tree or a minimalist look. DSC_7174 DSC_7180 DSC_7179 DSC_7185 DSC_7186

I love this little Disney macaroon I gave to my mum back in summer when I want to Paris for a few days. DSC_7181 DSC_7190 DSC_7188

The Christmas Advent calendar is my favourite Christmas decoration on the whole house! I don’t remember us not having it at Christmas. My brother and I used to come down every morning and open the new and and stick it on the tree. DSC_7193 DSC_7194

Of course we had to decorate the hallway, adding lights, glittery fabric and baubles to the banisters making it look like a winter wonderland.

hope you enjoyed looking around my house this Christmas and have a little nosy at how we have decorated this year. Thank you for reading!

Lots of love Amelia XO.

Festive Party

Christmas is the perfect time to see all your friends and with the last week of college 2015 coming to a close it was only right to have a few friends over for a little celebration. As you can see I love a party. I think the hat and tie really set my outfit off 😉

Denim Jacket and Hot Chocolate

This post should have really been titles ‘ when you ask your brother to take photos for you and you end up with the weirdest collection of photos’, but that would have been to long. DSCN1087 DSCN1088 DSCN1083 DSCN1079 DSCN1077 DSCN1086 DSCN1085 DSCN1084
