The world of blogging comes with its own dictionary. 'Blogiversary' is pretty self-explanatory; Are you dressing up or dressing down? reaches the grand old age of one today. Who'd have thought it. Not me, that's fo sho. If only you got presents like real birthdays.

This thing has gone ten fold, especially in the last month or so. I am thrilled at the addition of each and every new follower. Daily stats, comments and general feedback I get is insane and suprise me on the regular. Just a few weeks ago someone named dropped my blog on campus. It's unreal how far a fashion blog can reach.

I merely started it up to keep my creative juices flowing over the three month summer break last year and to proverbailly 'pimp' my CV. It may be cringe  / lame / gay but I couldn't have got through third year without it. It's been my outlet of sanity. I cannot reccommend it enough if you want to go into writing, its more of a must these days than an added bonus.

Thank you all for the continued support. Keep on reading, commenting, following and enjoying.

Here's to many more.

that Junior shoot.

Here's a bunch of the cutest kids you'll ever see. When I was down in London, living the life of a fashion intern, I proudly earned the title 'Fashion Assistant'. Here it is in writing and the result of that perfect summers day at Hever castle.
Junior Design Awards, Designer Fashion Shoot, July 2011.

Such babes, its impossible to choose a favourite.


i just don't know what to do with myself.

These lyrics have been whirring around my head for sometime now. It pretty much sums up my life at the moment. I am lacking a direction, bumbling from one day to the next in a steady state of delusion.

The answer? Fanny around in front of my camera before eating too much tapas. Great shout.
Shirt, Skirt and Necklace: TOPSHOP, Blazer: H&M, Belt: F+F Tesco

I have added some goodies, admist the home straight clear out, to my eBay.
Take a deeks.

I encourage you to share any inspirational words.

the bitter sweet taste of freedom.

My apologies for the lax blog ting, this week has been hectic beyond words.

The reasons being:

I am done with uni forever. After a final week of twenty hour stints glued to a computer screen, eating double my bodyweight in the contents of campus' vending machines I am well and truly done doe.

To celebrate we went to the races. I won actual money.

My momma is admist a big move, even further into the depths of the Northumberland countryside.

I have also worked all weekend which equals no free timey thus, no posty post.

The realisation of impending graduation is slowly killing me inside. What do people do with their lives beyond this point? The nine five grind has zero appeal. I wanna be a student on a lemonade budget with a champagne lifestyle forever.

Here is an asos dress I chatted about a few weeks ago. It looks better styled up to the nines but outfit posts are long and I'm tired. This girl looks pretty hot in it too.

Mesh dress: asos

Soon to be back on it, pinky promises.
