Donald Duck and Jane Austen

3pm stroll around Southampton old town and Ocean Village. We hunted out Jane Austen monuments and tudor architecture.

Also this Zara Donald Duck jumper is toasty warm and, what’s life without a little whimsy? (name that quote) The uni uniform is jeans, denim jacket and interchangeable tops. The same jacket as before because it doesn’t help that I left my other coats back at home, so will have to brave the cold until my return. Southampton is right on the water so there is no protection from the wind.

Embroidered Jumper

 Last year the sales weren’t for me, i didn’t find a single thing. But this year  The sales this year have been great this year, it hit me a little hard, but it was worth it.

Behold the mesh embroidered jumper of my dreams, and probably yours now. Worn with blue skinny jeans and my trusty long denim jacket.

This jumper would look great over a tight black dress for new years eve.

I’ve walked through these parks almost everyday and that it’s Autumn for all the lovely colours are perfect for outfit photos. dsc_0183 dsc_0184 dsc_0185 dsc_0191-001 dsc_0192 dsc_0198 dsc_0199

Do you ever have an outfit that you wear and you instantly feel so festive, this outfit does this for me. The cutest boots from Just Fab. They make any outfit a little more special and a burgundy mini skirt and you are away. I love all the different berry tones mixed with the brown of my shoes and the leaves.

Cacti

I’m all over the cacti trend, i have a few plants myself and a blanket, but I want to grow my collection. But for now I have this lovely t shirt. I wore it the opening of The Shed yesterday did you read the post? Heeled booties and my new cropped skinny jeans. Nothing else was really needed. I’ve worn this shirt so much, I’m in love.dsc_0140 Selfies were taken in the changing room at Re:So, they have beautiful clothes and their changing room decor is too cute.dsc_0148 dsc_0147

Re:So | The Shed Opening

dsc_0149

Re:So is a store in the heart of Southampton that is run by student of Southampton Solent. They have just launched their new vintage section called The Shed.

The Southampton bloggers were treated to a cat walk preview of what would be in store and a first hand look at the collection before it goes live to the public tomorrow.

Vintage shopping is so exciting before there are nearly always gems that you can’t live without. If the cartoon jacket would have fit, it would have been mine ( it’s reversible to) I never see anything like that.

If you are ever in Southampton do go to Re:So it doesn’t house just vintage but independent designers.

SoundClash 2016

Sound Clash 2016 – Somerley House Hampshire

Soundclash is the last event of freshers, I’m not really into the type of music that was played. But it was the last event of freshers so it seamed right to send freshers off with a bang.

Considering I’m not really a fan of club music I did watch a few sets and really enjoy them. I enjoyed Marvin Humes, Artful Dodger. I really came to see the Wilkinson set and Pendulum do a DJ set, they were the highlights for me.

There was a retro/cheesy tunes tent which i flocked to after a while as did most people, there is only so much bass you ears can take at one time.

Room Tour: Uni 2016

It’s odd to see all the things that occupy your room at home, taking up space in an new place. They look familiar and sort of comforting yet out of place.

dsc_0009

Welcome to my uni room. I’m in halls for first year, as are most people in the UK. I have 1 person to the left and the kitchen to the right. I think I have the room that gets all the noise. But I have made this little space my own and I’ve grown to love it.

I’ve the biggest wardrobe out of my friends. The size is perfect for me. Along the top i keep hair products, nails varnishes and handbags. On the rails are my clothes and my larger bags and the back. One the floor are my shoes and in the white bin is my laundry, and extras.

My hooks hold my coats  and my bag. They are together so i can grab them just before i leave for classes.

I’ve worked really hard on making this space my own, i think I’ve successfully put my stamp on the place. I love all the little cacti details and how everything has it’s space. I found out that not all the rooms here have wood floor, some have carpet which is harder to clean. I’ve very lucky to have a bigger room then the ‘better’ halls too.

Thank you for reading my latest post, I’ll try and get some outfit photos taken soon.

Behind The Scenes: Filming

I’ve been working with a few people from college to produce a short film for one of our assignments. There’s a lot more that goes into making a film then I first thought. Even this student film was totally crazy. The amount of prep and paper work that had to go on, before we even turned the camera on, was nuts. I appointed myself as wardrobe, and admin. I ended up doing so much more, I was roped into act ( I used to want to be an actress, but that dream died years ago) I played a character called Layla who got a little carried away on a first date.

I loved every single moment, the adrenaline I got during those two days could last me a week.

Here are the Behind The Scenes photos from the shoot.

Summer Dress at Cosy Club

I headed out to grab a bite with Lucy from Blogger Luce. We sat, ate, chatted and shopped, I just window shopped (nothing caught my attention, shocking I know) I love chatting with Lucy, I can talk about everything with her, but mainly about blogging today.

DSCN1582

The first sign of sun and I’m getting my legs out with this dress. I love this dress, an absolute bargain from Primark last year. DSCN1580

DSCN1583

My first ever designer bag got a runaround today. I don’t take her out really ever at all, she’s totally damaged but I’ve had her ages and I just love the pattern and the history. Sparkle ballet flats for all the window shopping.

DSCN1566

We ate at Cosy Club Bournemouth | First time I went I had a milk shake which really wasn’t that great. This time I had sweet potato fries and patatas bravas. I know I just ordered a plate of potato, what can I say, I love it. There are Cosy Clubs all over the UK.
