Undressed: Brief History of Underwear.
The V&A host so many exhibitions that I’d like to see. I chatted to mum for about 2 seconds before we booked our train tickets and headed into the capital.
First stop was Harrods where we had brunch in the Godiva Chocolate cafe.
the Godiva Milk Chocolate sin cake with a serving of hot pouring chocolate, a salmon and watercress sandwich. Both incredibly delicious and service was prompt considering we were 2nd through the door.
I love looking at and buying underwear and was so excited to go see the undressed exhibition. Of course we weren’t allowed to take photos, which was a real shame because I would have loved to have shown you some of my favourite pieces.

After we shopped around Liberty and looked at all their christmas Decorations then headed into Carnaby Street for dinner and a little shopping, before heading to the station to go home. We all fell asleep having officially conquered London for the day.

Harry Paye day is an annual event held on Poole Quay every year on the 18th June, but I’ve only been this year. You dress up as a pirate and have a laugh with your friends while you raise some money for local charities.
I pulled on my boots and bandana and dashed to meet my friend before everything finished. I made it just in time to watch the last band play and eat an ice-cream.
It’s amazing that you can pull a costume together with a tan belt, lose shirt, knee high boots and a bandana.

I can’t believe it’s June and I’ve only been to 1 BBQ, I love a BBQ. We hosted for some of my mums friends because of the work they did in the town here we live as a thank you.
It rained on and off so my outfit was a poor choice, but it’s super cute and the mesh overlay is my favourite. I threw on my New Look jacket which saved me from the cold.

Thank you for reading, apologies for the gap in posts ( my camera broke!!) Hopefully I can get someone ( hint hint) to take my photos for me.
Mini dresses are my go to piece to wear when having an evening out. Is there any better opportunity to show off as much leg as you can.
I wore this to watch Buffalo Go play at Sound Circus in Bournemouth.

Relaxed (lazy) style is my everything, picking everyday pieces that are comfortable mixed in with something a little special to create a workable, wearable outfit.
On lazy days balance is key, I don’t want to be wearing dresses that I have to have the best sitting posture in or the jeans that are to tight and show my knicker lines ( hello those 3 easter eggs) I also don’t want to be wearing my scruffy clothes with all the paint stains on.
This embellished jumper caught my eye from across the store, a bold statement from such a basic grey jumper. Paired with my trusty ripped jeans and cognac boots ( for some added hight ) Teamed with my beaded tassel earrings Zandra Rhodes bag and some much needed lipstick to complete my favourite relaxed look.

thanks for reading, please follow and have a lovely rest of your Easter break.
I’m nosy, i’ll be the first to say it. I love looking though peoples stuff ( with their permission of course) and knowing what they have/ collect/ hoard. I feel that’s why I love bloggers so much I get to look through their stuff. It’s only fair to return the favour.
What’s in my bag: party edition.
This little box clutch was from TK-Maxx by Love Weaves. It’s really quite small and doesn’t fit any of my normal every day stuff inside.
When I got out I have to take only what I really really need while I’m out.
This Lulu Guinness coin purse is perfect. Fits all the cards you need in a little internal side pocket and enough room for your change.
After a few drinks that lipstick you spent ages getting right is going to come off. I always have lip products with me. I don’t like having my photo taken with half warn off lipstick, but who does?
Topshop – Beguiled
The tiniest of perfumes for the tiniest of bags. You always want to smell nice after dancing, especially is you dance like me you really need perfume with you on a night out.
YSL – Opium
Save room and weight and take the smaller brush/comb you can. This is the comb from Mulan when I had the Disney costume.
Finally and most obviously your phone.
I spent the weekend in London with family celebrating Georgie and Tom’s engagement by attending their masquerade ball.
The whole family really got onboard with the masquerade theme and I think we do scrub up pretty well. I found it really hard to dance with a mask on so took it off to party the night away. Not before stopping by the photo booth the pose.
Having danced to all the greats, it was only right to get some cake.
Before my feet fell off from dancing in my shoes all night, we jumped in a taxi and headed back to the hotel.

Double denim has come into my life and I want him (her) to stay. I’ve paired my Danish denim coat with my ripped knee grey jeans. The dark denims compliment each other with getting out of my comfort zone. Apparently curly hair is on trend so I left mine to air dry. I’m all for curly hair being on trend, it means I can stop damaging my locks so much trying to straighten it.
I spent the day over in Wimborne looking around the shops and stopped into Walford Mill. An old mill that’s been converted into an art gallery and gift shop. The last time I was here was to sketch the exhibit on show for my A-level exam, which was about 4 years ago!
This is the only photo I took inside, you’ll just have to see the creativity for yourself.
Walford have workshops and new exhibits on all the time, so get yourself down there and get cultured. 😉

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.
