Winter Warmth

Although there are still 2 more months till winter is technically over, the days have been feeling warmer and shorter. Perhaps it is just my hopeful thinking, but I've been enjoying not needing to be wrapped so tightly in gloves and scarves...

Christmas Spirit

It's Christmas Day, whoop! I thought I'd share a few photos of the Christmas Season so far, as it has been rather hectic due to getting a part time job during the holidays. Anyhow, these little snippets were taken on Christmas Eve as we headed down the River Thames for a nice walk...

Street Style- Mixed Prints | 06.12.15

A couple of weeks back, I was lucky enough to meet up with a student studying at Worcester College for a little street style shot as I was planning on starting this new series on street style.

This little adventure seems rather daunting ( at the idea of not being judged for taking random photos), but hopefully will work out fine and enlighten quite a few people at the same time...

Oxford Fashion Week A/W 16

This post is long overdue, however a couple of months ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the Oxford Fashion Week, as a fellow blogger. This included the ability to look at the different designers backstage, as well as getting a lucky seat in the Couture show and Read to Wear show although I was only able to attend the latter due to it being on Halloween. 

Therefore evidently this meant there were many other plans that day to which coincided with the Oxford Fashion Week shows, although the OFW was definitely the highlight of the night!

Dominus Illuminatio Mea

On Monday afternoon, whilst the sun was setting but the air was still lukewarm,  Emma and I decided to head down to a café to get some reading done. Along we way, we passed by Green Templeton College- a lovely little college ground that can be added to my college series...

Dazzled Nights


 Last night, though chilly and rather wet, was a pretty fun time. Emma and I headed off to a little trip downtown, since I had a few errands to run, as did she so it was all perfect timings wise. We were greeted by the buzz of the city, as we strolled around with an aim however we got slightly off task due to the lovely residue of sales from Black Friday...

Lusts: The Knit Edit

Currently I have been rather obsessed with the knits, which I think is understandable since it's nearing towards the festive season and the peak of winter...

Southampton Chills

Just yesterday my friend (Emma) and I decided impromptu-sly to head to Southampton for a day out. To both of our surprise the weather was just a tad chilly, by that I mean around 2° and we were at least 2 layers short of the average outfit that...

Victoria Albert Museum, London

This autumn has been pretty hectic, but at the same time quite rewarding. It has been quite a struggle finding the right balance between school work and all the extra things in life. Since my mid term exams are now just looming around the corner I've finally knuckled down and gotten some work done, although the pile does seem to continuously grow nevertheless. However a couple weeks agro during the half term I decided to take a little break where I headed down to London with Emma...

Oxford Fashion Week X Wild Vagabonds

 Recently, I was lucky enough to spark up a collaboration with Oxford Fashion Week- this current week in fact. It's a great local show, but has also taken off quite dramatically with their great shows to all over the globe ( London, Paris and New York). Therefore I'm feeling super chuffed to be able to work with them as one of their bloggers for their upcoming show at the beautiful Sheldonian Theatre. The main two shows are on Saturday ( Ready to wear show -6pm, Couture show- 9pm). There are still tickets available here, so be sure to grab one before they sell out ( starting at just £12.50)

Brompton Square, London

On Saturday, I went to London with my friend Emma and met up with my other friend Selina which was super nice. That day I paired these ankle boots that were quite a new purchase from H+M with my beloved jumper that I raided from my mum's wardrobe. I decided to wear this since it looks quite chic yet gives a masculine vibe...

Autumnal Coffee Dates

The autumnal vibe of Oxford has really kicked in as the temperature is beginning to drop drastically which naturally means that the scarves and coats get their seasonal show...

Chilly Autumnal Days

Autumn has finally dawned on England and strangely enough I'm enjoying the frosty cold days more than I thought I would do. Perhaps it's the change from the heat that I appreciate, or maybe it's just the overall lovely knits and autumnal colours surrounding the city. Whatever it may be, it's helping me get through the endless homework I'm drowned in, so that's always a positive...

School Girl Vibe

Autumn is officially here now and it's pretty wonderful weather currently in England ( although we are all doubtful of the longevity of this). Nevertheless it's quite nice to have the sun out when a tad chilly. It does mean, regretfully, however that I'm more prone to getting a cold which I can definitely feel coming on...

Summertime Nostalgia

During the summertime, I went cycling down to a lovely village called Ofpingen in Germany. On that day my friend took a few photos of my outfit...

Dreisam River, Freiburg

On the penultimate day of staying at my friend Charlotte's in Germany, we decided it would be a nice idea to go on a cycle ride around the countryside...

New In: Bell-Sleeved Blouse

At the very beginning of summer I got a little bit too carried away and bought a ton of stuff. However recently I've managed to revisit this lovely bell-sleeved blouse from ZARA. I styled it with some high waisted denim cut offs, as I think this blouse pairs really nicely with the denim colour...

Strasbourg, France: Part 3



Last but not least is the third part of the Strasbourg posts in my 'European Travels' series which you can check out here. In this post most of the photos featured were taken towards the beginning of the day...

Strasbourg, France: Part 2

As promised, here is the second part of the Strasbourg visit which I hope seems interesting some what- it was for me anyways. The journey was lovely and quick without any delays which made the ride much more enjoyable I thought. Here, as shown below, is the centre of Strasbourg which was full of vibrancy and people buzzing around as they soaked up the culture there. There were cafés at every turn and markets on every street. It was an absolutely stunning sight...

Strasbourg, France: Part 1


 Just before I left to go back to England with my friend Charlotte we headed to Strasbourg, which is near the border of France and Germany. The trip took just under two hours which was great because it meant we had quite a lot of time visiting around the city and discovering little gems such as the cathedral and the markets scattered around...

Day in Oxford | 22.07.15

A while ago now, a few friends from Kingston upon Thames came to visit me! It was quite spontaneous and really fun, we had a great time. I showed them around various sites in Oxford, including Christ Church meadows and St John's College- one of my favs...

Evening Stroll

One evening whilst in Germany I was invited along with my friend Charlotte to a friend's party ( Julia). It was pretty cool as the setting was on a hill side and the view was so nice. We enjoyed a couple of drinks there and had a few conversations, it was pretty chilled for the most part- ish.

Schauinsland, Black Forest

A couple of days after I arrived in Freiburg I visited one of the iconic places nearby in the countryside called Schauinsland which is part of the Black Forest...

Arriving in Freiburg

On the 26th of July I arrived in Freiburg to visit one of my friends from primary school when I used to live there. It was a great opportunity because I got to explore more of Freiburg and practise my poor German language. Also I made friends with a couple of her mates which was fun and experienced the german culture and their parties a little too...

Titisee Lake, Freiburg

The day after I visited Colmar and Breisach I was lucky enough to visit Titisee, which is in a nearby village or town to Freiburg. It was such a lovely place and the weather was lovely, here are some photos from the trip...

Breisach + Colmar ( & Giveaway!)

Currently I’m in Freiburg enjoying the 30 degrees weather whilst writing this and listening to the Kooks. I’ve been here for nearly two weeks now and I leave on Saturday, however I’ve already been to so many different cities nearby including Colmar in France and Breisach in Germany- both quite near to Freiburg. Right now it’s the 2nd of August ( I like to write my blog posts a little ahead of time!) so I might also be visiting Straßburg on Thursday which will be great fun I believe...

TRUCK Festival

 
Finallyy- the truck post, here it is! It was just over 2 week ago that TRUCK festival was on, which was super fun. I went there with a few close friends, however loads of people from my school came which was great as I hadn't seen them for a while so it was nice to catch up...

On the river

Just before Truck Festival I had the eager to go punting, quite out of the blue, therefore impromptu I decided to arrange a quick day out. I ended up going with 4 other friends punting at the Magdalen boathouse and it was super fun!

Off the shoulder: Look 2

As promised, this is the short series featuring two off the shoulder looks. In this shoot ( featuring Emma's Garden), I decided to put together a simple yet practical look...

New In: Lyla Loves Accessories


Recently, in fact just before Truck festival I shot this look with my friend Emma in front of the Radcliffe Camera. This look features some key items I received from the lovely Lyla of Lyla Loves, a unique personal boutique that has a HUGE selection of jewellery and accessories to choose from...

Magdalen + Keble College

A week ago or so, my friends and I decided to take a stroll around town after having a picnic in the lovely University Park on South Park Road when we decided to pop in to a few colleges. It was the Open Day of Oxford Uni, therefore they were even more crowded then usual however we managed to capture a few shots before the tourists swamped the place up ( no offence!)...

Summer- Autumn Wishlist

 Aloha mes amies,
I don't even know why I did that but a nice mix of French and Spanish I believe...anyway here's a quick summer to autumn wish list that I made using my supreme collage skills- not...

Behind the Closet: Summer Edition

top, Zara (sale)
cardigan, Zara (new)
skirt, Primark (new)

Recently I've decided to come up with this new idea of shooting a couple of outfits in the changing rooms of shops that I like. This sounds kind of weird and creepy, but actually it show cases what`s in store better without myself having to spend money I don't have. These are some photos I shot of my outfits with only few pieces from the store, however in the future I plan to do whole looks as if I were a mannequin showing what's in my favourite stores. I hope you like it!

Off the shoulder: Look 1

Today is the 11th July, but I'm writing this in advance because I'll be heading to Truck Festival when you read this which will be super fun- hopefully! I'm looking forward to the whole festival vibe but also the line up is pretty decent. Some of my favourites would have to be: Darwin Deez, The Charlatans, Lucy Rose and of course Clean Bandit and Temples. There are also a ton of other great bands, so it'll be great...

Lemon Trees + Pristine Dresses

This is the last post for the series from Botanic Gardens which features this white/ cream dress from H&M that I love. I got this dress last year and I've actually not worn it much because I don't think it suits me very much. However I decided to put it on for this shoot as the scenery of the gardens seemed to work well. I'm still not bought on this dress but many people seem to like it, so I might try and wear it more by incorporating other styles that I do like...

Stuck in a daze

Currently I've been obsessed with wearing dresses and skirts, I guess that's mostly down to it being summer but also because they are so comfortable and easy to put together...
