I celebrated my 22nd birthday with my lovely sister and great friend Hangqing, by going to Wagamama, it’s definitely one of my favourite places to eat. I try and order something different every time.
It’s clear that the ramen went to our heads! We headed off to Sprinkles for an ice cream coma, but no one should ever have to see those photos.

SS/16 trends are in and I’m fully behind most of them ( well all of them really) but I’m not convinced by the slip dress. Rochas and Emilio Pucci’s slips were so bang on with my style. There are a few body types that would look amazing in the slip. But on my body taking into account my stature ( hello 5 10!) and that I’m a smaller waist them my hips, it would mean that the slip dress would sit or cling to this area. I would definitely find it really hard to not think I was wearing a nightie overtime I wore it. Also blush is meant to be huge this season, gorgeous grey toned pinks and peaches are going to be huge in my wardrobe.
The slip dress really follows the whole under wear as outer wear, but maybe a little to much. Here is how I styled this trend.
No slip dress for me, however i still keep on trend with this style by making a blush pink top.
Choker – Accessorize
Slip top – New Look

And I got my septum pierced yesterday, turns out I’m quite an impulsive person.

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.
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 spend the afternoon in class h, which was great because I got to see your friends.
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’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

I hope you had an amazing New Year! First post of 2016!!
Lots of love Amelia, XO
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!
jacket –Baum und Pferdgarten
lipstick – Rimmel Kate Moss
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
Ear Cuff – Zara
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)
