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.
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,
Jacket – Red Herring
Dress – Topshop
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!!
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.
Knit Dress – Topshop ( in the sale)
Leggings – Zara
Boots – ( so old, but these)
Lipstick – No 7

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!

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 😉
Dress – Next

I made Slutty Brownies, Christmas Dinner rolls and played the competitive game of Pounce and then Hide and seek in the dark ( because we’re adults and we know how to have adult fun)
Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed, love Amelia XO.
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.
It’s my big brothers birthday today, I really can’t believe that he’s 24! The family got together to celebrate with a walk around the park and a mini train ride (turns out the train wasn’t running!)

I’ve been wanting to wear these trousers all through autumn and into winter, but never found the perfect way to stay warm and still look good. I think I’ve found it, flowing layers, and knits.
Pairing this long cardigan with these trousers was such a happy accident. The cardigan is super light weight yet I didn’t feel cold taking photos in the wind ( see all photos above of me not managing the wind) Ofcourse I had to glam it up a little with some rose lips and patent nude heels.

You don’t have to put away your summer clothes, just integrate them into your winter wardrobe.
