Is it normal for an 18 year old girl to have an Alice in Wonderland tea party on her own? Because that’s what I did yesterday. And it was great fun.

Ok, so I did actually have a reason for carrying all of this stuff into the woods- mainly for my photography exam next week (see this is how unorganised I am- my exam is next week and I only just started taking photos oops), but I thought I’d share some of the unedited original images with you before I completely ruin them next week with my appalling photoshop skills. Haha!

To be honest I did get a few weird looks from dog walkers. And that was probably wasn’t just down to the fact that I was taking pictures of cake, but because to get into the mindset of the mad hatter, I thought it would be a fantastic idea to walk around the woods wearing a top hat. I definitely think they should come into fashion- I would totally jump on that trend, haha!

I went back to the woods again today, and looked equally as insane, but it’s ok. The pictures from today’s adventure will be up very soon!

Ahh it feels good to be back! 🙂

À bientôt!!

Winter Wonderland

So, seeming as college was cancelled yesterday I thought that it was the perfect opportunity to go for a walk and take some pictures of the snow!

In an attempt to keep warm I wore a wooly jumper along with this adorable duck print skirt I bought last week, tights and long woollen socks (and I obviously topped this all off with a coat because I get cold so so easily.) And of course my beloved Hunter Wellies, I love them so much, I literally wear them at any chance I can get haha!IMG_3714 copy IMG_3725 copy IMG_3720 copy IMG_3731

I walked over to the woods, (I spend a lot of my time just walking through the woods, seriously, its like a strange hobby that I have), and I was greeted with the prettiest sights, trees just look so nice in the snow.

This lake was frozen, and the ducks were walking across it, it was literally the funniest thing I have ever seen, I just stood there laughing to myself (I must have looked insane).IMG_3790IMG_3791 IMG_3792 IMG_3794 IMG_3796

 

Today pretty much all the snow has melted, and everything is back to normal, booo.

I love the snow, everything looks prettier covered with it 😀

Do you guys like winter?

London Collections- Men AW13

So, these past few days have seen a huge number of menswear fashion shows in London, for the 3 days of London Collections.

Personally, I have always been really interested in menswear (there was actually a period of time where I was seriously considering studying it at university), and the shows this year didn’t disappoint.

The majority of the shows have concentrated on the idea of the “english gentleman”, with top hats and bow ties making a lot of appearances.

There was one show in particular that I just felt the need to share with you. You have to watch this video, showing “The Nutters of Savile Row x Peter Werth”‘s collection. I promise you, you’ll love it- it takes a typical runway show and adds a quirky twist 🙂

These outfits were some of my favourites from the collection. I love the little pop of colour added from the pink and red blazers, colourful ties and vests, and obviously the blue trousers. I think it adds a quirky, fun aspect to the traditional black and white of mass produced menswear.

I absolutely love the top hat, you have no idea how happy I would be if it became fashionable for men to wear them again haha! And bow ties of course of course 🙂

London fashion week is next month! My plan is to go and lurk outside of somerset house, does anyone want to join me? hah!

À bientôt!!

Flowers

Today I thought I’d just share a few recent photos i’ve taken with you.

Literally everything i’m working on at college at the moment has something to do with flowers. I honestly dont even know why or how this has happened. I’m thinking maybe I just have this unconscious obsession with flowers that makes me include them in my ideas for everything haha!

Black and white photography is kind of my baby at the moment, I really like the different effect you can get from a photo just by taking away the colour. I also prefer close macro shots compared to full length ones.

I have so so many images of flowers saved on my laptop, if anyone were to look at my files i’m pretty sure that they would assume I was a florist. Maybe I will share some more of the photo’s i’ve taken with you sooooon 🙂

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend~

À bientôt!!
