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,

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.

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’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.
Thank you for reading, Amelia XO
I wore this to my mums Christmas party, she hosts one every year and it’s always a hoot.
I loved wearing kimonos during the summer but thought they would be silly in winter. How wrong was I, they are the perfect party dress coverup. I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac non-stop, which inspired the accessorise. Also I’ve found that I hate wearing tights, they are so uncomfortable.
Kimono – love this

This cape is everything to me this season. I love swaddling myself in soft warm fabric to keep out the winters wind. The colours are perfect for pairing with anything, winter dresses, trousers, blue jeans. It just works.
I hope the weather sorts its self out soon, so I can take some outfit photos outside without blowing away.

I think I’ve found the perfect black jumper for winter! (I know that’s a big statement) The fit is perfect, it’s warm ( no need to layer up) the little slits al the sides add a little detail the high neck. There is no frills to this jumper, it does it’s job and it does it every well. I love pairing it with a bright shirt to make a statement.
