Hello lovely people, today I am back with another outfit post. I was going to do one of my Halloween costume but I haven't actually tried it out yet (and therefore it could all go horribly wrong tomorrow).
Of course as it is autumn I had to do a stereotypical fashion blogger autumn psot with the leaves and the colours and everything. Just to get it all out of my system. I mean I love autumn, well to be honest I love every season, I just love seasons and how everything changes and the mood that goes along with it from cosyness to new beginnings to evenings out in the sun it's all perfect to me.
But back to autumn and this post, yes I have won this hat and all out and I get some weird looks out in my big hat. But it's actually really handy, because I have really sensitive eyes and when the sun is low in the autumn evenings I can use my hat to shade my eyes, It all works until it's windy and then me and the hat don't get on very well.
Also these shorts are greaaat, I don't think they suit me amazingly but I love just swishing around with the tassels. Plus they're so soft, hurrah for faux suede.

Hey hey pretty people. Today I'm playing at being a beauty blogger. Which I'm not in any way, but I gave it a go. The photos didn't turn out how I wanted but it's a good attempt (I have done some beauty posts before a loong time ago).
I saw Makeup Revolution had lipsticks for £1 and thought what have I got to lose, I loved the colours and even if they were no good it wasn't a lot of money lost. So I got 10 listicks for £12 including postage, not bad. I did accidentally buy two of the same shade though, so if I do a giveaway soon that'll be part of it.

No I haven't suddenly changed my hair back to blonde, these pictures are from a while ago. I actually took them for a Magazine but they never got my email and so I never got to be a part of it. But things come back and I should be in their February issue instead (fingers crossed) but of course I want to take a whole bunch of new pictures and have a new challenge and so you guys get to see these images.
Originally I was going to try and make temporary tattoos from flowers (using this tutorial here) but decided to leave it till the day before I wanted to take my pictures to look at the tutorial. Realising that I needed to use pressed flowers and well they take more than over night to press, so I improvised by taking some photos of flowers and using a bit of photoshop.
I tried to do these sort of more editorial style so I changed my clothes up a bit. Hope you like them!

Or don't as the case may be in this post (you'll see what I mean later on in the pictures). Hey hello I'm back this every 3 days thing is going well I;m vv happy about that woo!
These pictures are in a slightly different style to usual, I shot them at home in my Mum's greenhouse which is quite small so it was a challenge! Also if you're wondering about the bubble-wrap it's there because it's starting to get cold and the greenhouse isn't very well insulated so it's for insulation. It looks a little odd I know. But I didn't want to take it all down to take these photos. Plus it makes the light really nice for the photos.
But yeah different in that I had props and stuff. And it's all because of my ah-mazing dino shirt. I've wanted it ever since the whitepepper released it aaages ago but it's taken me until now to pluck up the courage to buy it. And now they've bought out the perfect bag collection with rockets and ufos and clouds and a bat backpack and I don't quite know which one to buy, any suggestions guys?
Speaking of bags d'you like my camera bag? I bought it at a flea market I went to a couple of weeks ago, my Dad picked it up and I was just like "mine yes" I haggled a bit for it and yeah it's mine I love it. Not very practical but it's a nice piece anyhow (I mean half the bags I own aren't practical tbh).

Step on it

This every 3 days thing is actually working, woop de woop. Today I am back with an autumn wishlist, as I am also sticking to my outfit outfit other post style. For now anyhow. Today's wishlist is all items from Dresslink and I tried to stay away from just black and white but I kept being drawn back to it, oopsies.
The background is odd I know, i was looking through my archive of photos for autumnal photos but I don't seem to take many photos of autumn? I mean I was looking for cliché leaf pictures but nada. Apparently I don't take those kind of pictures. This works too I think, though it's a bit unconventional for wishlists.

And by it I mean the 90s grungy jumper and by back I mean in fashion. Well as you guys have probably guessed if you've followed me for a while (or have looked back through some of my outfits) you probably know I don't really care what's in fashion, I wear what I wear. However, when something is in fashion I can buy lots of that item. Like fluffy things seemed to be last autumn, i bought loads and I have more than enough for the cold months. I bought the jumper I'm wearing now in a vintage shop and I think I paid a lot for it (well a lot for me to buy things it was probably like £25) but I want more and I keep on looking for the perfect baggy grungy knit cardi or jumper but nada. They're either in colours I'd never wear or they're wool, which is irritating as anything and hardly vegan (though that's not so much of an issue if it's vintage). So yeah bring them back! I want to be cosy in ridiculously big knit jumpers. Please and thank you.
Also this posting every 3 days thing is actually working, it has been 3 days (just over 72 hours but who's counting) since my last post and i even have a schedule of what I'm going to post next! Well I say it's going well it's almost midnight and I'm just finishing editing and writing but it's not midnight yet so I am winning. Also I have a schedule but I haven't edited any of the photos for any of my schedule and I haven't even taken most of the photos but it's still progress. And progress is progress, but I won't speak too soon as this could go down the drain soon.

Hey again pretty people. Sorry for the late post I have been so super busy this week! It's been photography pretty much non stop. I just haven't had the chance to edit my blog posts. also don't help that I jsut got Civilization Beyond Earth but yanno, lets pretend that's not a factor.
I've been volunteering at Cardiff's Diffusion Festival for the last week and going to some of the events and it's been super fun, plus I've had my photography course and I've been working on photos from that (which I will show you in my next post probably) so it's all go.
The title was just because I have no creativity tonight apparently. And this is the first post with me and my grey hair so it seemed like a good idea?

Hello hello hello, the final instalment of my Paris posts is finally here! It took a while to get here and honestly this post could've easily been split into four or five posts but I have other things planned that I'm excited to post so here's just a super jam packed photo post (there are almost 50 pictures and a video in this, aren't you lucky).
Before I go onto talk more about this post and Paris I shall link you to my previous Paris posts there is the first outfit post, Cat Cafe and a second outfit post if you haven't already seen those.
There are a few things I do want to talk about from Paris (which I did write down so I wouldn't forget) like the really strange announcement sounds. In the Airport it sounded like someone was being ascended to heaven and in the train stations it sounded like the start of Soulja Boy.
Also if you get a transport pass, like a 3 or 5 day one (they make things so much easier... theoretically) don't keep them near your phone! Don't! We weren't told this to start with and Anna had to change their ticket like 5 times, it was a nightmare and meant at one station we couldn't even get out. So just a warning there, you don't want to have to try and change your ticket loads, especially when you've already been travelling for 5 hours.
All in all though Paris was beautiful as expected and a lot of fun. We did mainly chliche tourist stuff but that was fun. Though Paris is pretty difficult to navigate because every building looks the same, it's all white and all pretty but all the freaking same and bigger than I was excpeting. I've been to London quite a lot and that is big but I know it reasonably well so it seems ok (plus different areas look very different so you know where you are).
But anyway, onto the photos. Speak to you more after them. The photos are in order of my trip, so it does end on a Cemetary, bit weird but that's just how the trip happened.
