New Camera!

Yes! Christmas has come early for me! My dad knew I wanted this camera and he said he'll get it for me, I didn't plan on him turning up at my flat with it!

My decision to seriously start blogging was the reason I wanted a camera, I wanted to be able to take semi-decent photos rather than just using my phone and inflict my face on you all! *evil laugh*

I'm still going to be pretty busy from now until Christmas with exams and coursework, but I plan on giving this a real shot when the holidays start! Wish me luck!

What camera do you use for your blog photos? All hints and tips welcome!

One Sketch A Day

I feel like I've been stuck in a creative rut recently, all the studying and coursework has really taken its toll on me and my brain just seems to not want to do anything else.

So I purchased this visual journal One Sketch A Day from Chronicle Books in attempt to keep my brain engaged, even if it's a pointless doodle.

You ever felt like you were in a creative rut? What have you done to snap out of it?

“For women, shoes are the most important. Good shoes take you good places.”

I ordered my first pair of impractical shoes today.

I only call these impractical because I rarely ever wear flats (or heels!) and I live in Scotland. Enough said.

It's funny, it's not until this year that I've really developed a love and appreciation for shoes. Usually I just tend to wear the same 2 pairs of boots everyday until they can no longer be seen in public and buy new ones. But ever since acquiring some shoe-loving friends and becoming an avid reader of many fashion blogs I've really started noticing that shoes CAN be an important aspect of an outfit. I guess I can't just keep living in my Dr. Martens forever eh?

Don't mind me I'm just going to keep staring at the picture until they arrive.

What's the most impractical pair of shoes you've bought and loved?

Merry Christmas from Oxfam!

So I'm unofficially the "window person" at my local Oxfam bookshop which I volunteer in. This year I was asked to do the Christmas window and I already knew in my head what I wanted. A Christmas tree made of books! I've seen many pictures online and Waterstones bookshop even had a cut-out version last year, but I thought I'd do one better and build it myself.

I previously asked the manager to keep aside as many pretty books as he could for me, and he did a good job! I can't say it was an easy task... with having to work with a certain number of book and customers picking up my books! I also had a few people watching me from outside the window..

After a while I was pretty happy with the end product. It got a lot of compliments and my manager was happy.

What have you been doing to spread the Christmas love?

First Time For Everything

Hello there, this is my first post at my attempt of making my own fashion/lifestyle blog.

I'm not quite sure how it's going to turn out or whether anyone would even read it, but we've all got to start somewhere right?

So if you've come this far then thanks for taking time to read this and leave a comment to say hi! I'd love to get to know you.
