Where to begin? Hello! Welcome back, I hope everyone had a magical Christmas and Happy New Year! (Feels like centuries ago) I spent some time off over Christmas and New Year but I am well and truly back. I was away mid/end of December on a Mediterranean Cruise and then made a flying visit to Spain to see my family, after the shenanigans of New Year my boyfriend whisked me away to Paris for a long weekend which was bloomin’ lovely, however unfortunately when I got back I was sick in bed for a week with the flu throwing up my soul. On a lighter and brighter note, that does mean I have a bank of exciting travel posts that are going to be popping up in the next few weeks so keep those peepers peeled…

If you read my last Visual Diaries post on Minimalistic Interior (or if you haven’t, click here) you’ll know that it’s a new section on my blog that I have decided to try out. While studying Fashion Design at university I tried to live by the quote I once read by Giorgio Armani – “To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail“.

In this blog post I’m going to show you my favourite ways I like to style a simple crisp white shirt. I really love the idea of gender free shopping and while shirts are normally quite a manly piece there are ways in which you can style things to suit your personal style and taste. In my eyes a white shirt should be a staple piece in everybody’s wardrobe, this one item of clothing can bring you many, many outfits. It’s considered a very masculine piece that should only (if ever) be worn by a woman in an office environment, but pair it with some skinny jeans and stilettos and it instantly becomes more sexy. As much as I love androgynous style I like to balance it with a slice of femininity too. I’m going to show you a couple of ways to wear and style a shirt to make it less masculine. If you’re intrigued, keep orrrn reading…
Today’s post is the first of a new section on my blog called ‘Visual Diaries’. I’m a very visual person and when I’m browsing through Tumblr I love collecting images and grouping them into various categories (I do also actually have a life). Whether that be wide groups of Interior, Architecture & Fashion or smaller more specific groups like Fashion details (e.g pockets) or Geometric Architecture etc.

Here’s a quick step by step tutorial on how to achieve this Halloween SFX Make up without using latex. This was my first attempt so it’s not perfect and a few things need adjusting! Once you know the technique it’s so simple and you can do all sorts of cuts and wounds in different places.
The colder months are upon us! *Read in Jon Snow’s voice* Winter…is…coming. This season is my favourite in terms of Fashion and styling, I love to layer and play around with different shapes, silhouettes, textures of fabric and the desaturated shades and colours that tend to appear at this time of year. Here are 3 outfits I’m going to be rotating throughout this Autumn/Winter, I hope you get some inspiration!

So, Fashion Week is over for another season *sighs with relief* (but also with a little sadness). Fashion week always seems to have the best timing, I can get stuck in a rut with my style and get tired of the same trends, so as soon as Fashion Week arrives it’s always as if a light bulb flickers on above my head. I find myself suddenly on a roll, searching online for new looks and tearing my wardrobe apart. Looking through all the amazing collections (yes, every single show) I decided I wanted to create a diary of images. I sifted through each city, each designer, each collection, each ensemble, backstage too and picked the looks that I loved and was inspired by most. I thought it would be nice to look back at (plus a little more personal than flicking through Vogue) and hopefully for you all to get some inspiration and to implement that (even if it’s a beauty trend) into your Spring/Summer wardrobe.
