I thought I would try out a new hairstyle, and for those who may have noticed, I have also had my hair coloured. I'm not sure on it, it's not really what I asked for, but then I can't remember the last time I left a hairdressers with what I thought I was going to. So aside from the colour, what do you reckon on the hairstyle? I watched Zoella's half up topknot hair video and thought I would give it a whirl. I have such thin hair though so it didn't come out quite like hers, but I don't hate it. Thumbs up or thumbs down?
This dress is something I have had since forever. I don't even remember when I bought it. I thought it was quite appropriate attire for the new season though. Even if I am still mourning the loss of summer. In the UK anyway, as this post goes up I will still be on holiday so I'll be loving life in the Californian sun still. Don't make me come home!

New Look Wishlist

newlookwishlist
Boots  |  Skirt  |  Trench  |  Bag  |  Tee  |  Flats

When a brand's campaign images are killer, I will want everything in them and be looking at the new in section all the time. For AW15 I adore New Look's campaign images and I've been lusting over quite a few of their new pieces recently. So I thought I would share them with you! There definitely is a bit of a camel, black and burgundy theme going on. While I may not like all the layers you need to wear in the Autumn/Winter, the cold weather and the dark mornings and nights, I do love all the rich colours of the season! 
There was also the most gorge leopard print skirt but it's already gone out of stock and says it won't be available to buy again. Note to self: This is why you buy at first sight.

Camo & Denim

ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 10 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 5 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 4 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 8 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 3 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 2 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 9 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 1 ASOS Denim Skirt Camouflage Shirt 7
shirt - MATALAN

skirt - ASOS
trainers - ADIDAS STAN SMITHS

It's now officially the time of year when I need to layer clothing, hence the t-shirt under the shirt. That's the only way I can brave bare legs in the Autumn. I'm such a cold person, I think most other people must have thicker skin or something than me because I'm cold pretty much the majority of the year. Air con is one of my deadly enemies unless it's over 40 degrees. Why does everyone else like it so much?! 
Anyway, back to the outfit! If you have seen my denim lookbook video then you may have spied another way I styled this skirt. For the blog I thought I'd style it a little differently. I think denim may have been one of my favourite fashion pieces this year. Last year all I cared about was jeans. If you'd have told me this time last year I'd be loving a denim midi skirt I would have given you a very weird look! But here it is, and it's love. I also have it in the indigo wash because I really do just love this skirt that much.

Blue & Orange Autumn Transitioning

skirt - NEW LOOK
jumper - H&M
necklace - a gift from my mum
shoes - CALVIN KLEIN

If you watch my videos then you may remember seeing this skirt crop up in my New Look Haul way back in May. Annoyingly it was a little bit too big to sit on my waist where I wanted it to, so I had to alter it to be a little tighter to fit my waist. This meant that it did sit there unworn for quite a while due to my procrastination about fixing it. In the end, I didn't even alter it, good old mum came to the rescue!
But as it wasn't the right size for ages, I haven't had the chance to wear it all summer, and I started thinking I was never going to get to wear it because autumn is now rolling in. So rather than styling it as I had planned as a summer piece, I thought I'd get a bit summer-autumn transitional and add a light piece of knitwear to go with it to make it September appropriate. 
I absolutely love the print on the skirt and the unusual mix of colours. And this new jumper from H&M is a new fave. I think they also have it in a mustard colour, and I'm really after a bit of mustard in my life this season. I think that will be top of my shopping list when I get back from holiday!

Five University Fresher Tips

47019_437123826273_3784323_n
me on my first week of uni off on a pajama bar crawl

Around this time five years ago I was getting ready to head off to Southampton (around two & a half hours from my hometown) for university. Please excuse me while I just go and scream into a pillow that that happened five whole years ago, seriously where has the time gone!
But back to the point, five years ago I was getting very nervous about moving away from home without all my friends and family, making new friends, and living with a bunch of people in halls of residence that I'd never met before. As my university experience video on YouTube is one of my most viewed, I thought I would put a little blog post up for anyone about to start uni with a few of my top tips to get you through those first few weeks if you're feeling a little nervous. 

1. Get Involved
While to some it may seem daunting to throw yourself straight into parties and hanging out with all these new people you don't know, just remember you're all in the same boat. And the quickest way to make friends is to get involved, if you sit in your room avoiding it, it'll be harder a few weeks in. So just get out there, be yourself and make some friends.

2. Be Prepared For Living With Other People
The biggest shock to me was the mess of living with other people. Luckily for me I had an en-suite room and the cleaners came in and took our bins out on weekdays, but there was still a lot of mess living with other people. So if you're not used to mess or living with a lot of other people, then prepare yourself for it a bit so it doesn't come as too much of a shock.

3. Savour Every Moment
Being a uni fresher will fly by before you know it, so savour every single moment you get. Say yes to all the fun things you get invited to and really make the most of them. Five years down the line, my first year of university is something I think about a lot, and I really miss it. It truly was one of the best years of my life.

4. Know Your Limits
Just because it's freshers week, or you're trying to fit in and make friends, always know your limits. Don't be peer pressured into drinking too much or anything like that. If people think any less of you for not drinking loads, they're not the kind of friends you really need. 

5. Don't Worry
Finally and most importantly, don't worry. You're going to have an absolutely amazing time and make some wonderful friends! And even if it isn't for you once you get there, that's completely fine too. University isn't for everyone. So don't stress, just get excited for possibly the best few years of your life!

Despite the Macbook breaking catastrophe of last Thursday, I somehow have still managed to edit, upload and schedule three videos and edit and schedule around eight blog posts over the weekend for while I'm away on holiday. Major thanks to Luke for letting me use his laptop half of the weekend to edit everything and to my mum for letting me borrow hers to finish off writing my blog posts, including this one.
The only thing I need to do now is worry about getting it fixed, but that can wait until after my holiday because all I want to focus on is the fact that the morning after this blog post is going up, I will be on my way to California for a two week road-trip with Luke! I'm so freakin' excited!
As I said I do have blog posts scheduled to go up while I'm away, and videos too, but I won't actually be on my blog for the next two weeks so if you want to follow our travels then just make sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
Cali here we come!

A Denim Lookbook



If you're subscribed to my YouTube channel then you may have already seen this, just in case you haven't, here it is! A denim lookbook featuring a few of my current favourite denim looks. I'm really pleased with how this came out as I managed to film it all in a few hours. I also tried to edit it a bit better than my other videos and really searched for music. 
Editing isn't my favourite part of making videos. I love planning them, filming them, and the end result but I avoid editing for as long as I can. I don't really know why, but recently I've really been loving how other people have edited their videos so I'm going to try and make a bit more effort from now on. It really does make a difference when a video is edited in a slick way. 
So it's not perfect but I'm going to start trying to teach myself to edit a little better! Hope you like it!

Yesterday my Macbook broke, 4 days before I go on holiday, with 3 YouTube videos to edit, several blog posts to edit and schedule, and holiday planning still needing to be done. Safe to say I wasn't a very happy bunny last night. The only saving grace is that I can get all the stuff off my hard drive as Luke has been able to take it out and check for me.
On the downside I'm now laptop-less for the foreseeable future and will come home with so many blog posts and videos to edit and no idea how long it will be until I can do them. I know it's total first world problems but it's Friday and it's been a long week. If I schedule any more content for social media I think I may have a mental break down. My holiday literally could not come soon enough.
Luckily for me, Luke has let me borrow his laptop tonight to write this post, and has said I can have his laptop whenever he's not needing it over the weekend. So I may be able to get some stuff edited and scheduled, I may not. 
Four and a half years you were good to me Macbook Pro, don't fail me now! Or if you have to then fingers crossed the house insurance has got my back! 
On a happier note, how amazing are these ASOS Twister heels! It really shouldn't have taken me this long to get them up on the blog, but better late than never eh! The only problem is they are pretty hard to walk in, but I'll suffer for their beauty. Maybe I'll just wear them places I only have to sit down? Whatever I have to do, I'll do it for these bad boys!
