Peacock Feathers | OOTD

This is an outfit I got super excited about, I wore it to a local gig but added a leather jacket to keep me warm on the winter evening in Wales.  I love this shirt, I almost didn’t buy it because my male housemates hated it in the shop, saying it looked like it should be on a pair of curtains (this just made me like it even more), but I had some store credit to spend and nothing else really caught my eye so I got it anyway. I just think it could go with all sorts of things…

This is Not a Photo Opportunity

Since graduating from my photography degree I’ve done a serious lack of taking or making photographs. It’s almost as if all my ability to pick up my camera and press the shutter has been sucked out of me, and quite honestly this makes me very sad. I still take photos on an almost daily basis with my phone (I have in fact been taking part in the 100 Happy Days challenge on instagram) but it’s just not the same. I miss the process of working through a project, and of composing shots until they’re just right. And I especially miss…

3D Quote Picture | DIY

I’ve made a couple of 3D pictures for friends as birthday presents (unfortunately I don’t have any photos 🙁 ) and decided I wanted one for myself. I made mine different to the ones I’ve made previously as I wanted a quote rather than an image. Read on to see how I made this one. What you’ll need Magazines, or anything to make the background from. The quote you want, in the right size A deep frame with an insert that lets you put something either up against the glass or further back from it, like this one from Ikea. A…

January Sales Haul

Like a lot of people, I’ve bought rather a lot this month, some bargains and a few not so much. So I thought I would share my January sales finds.  Urban Outfitters I used to buy a lot of clothes from UO a couple of years ago when I could take advantage of my sister working there and having staff discount and now in comparison everything just seems vastly overpriced to me even though I do still like a lot of their things. However, their homeware sale this year got me rather excited and several times I had to edit…

Resolutions for 2014

Resolutions are a funny thing, the majority of people make them at the start of every year but how many really stick to them? And why do we wait until the new year to make changes in our lives? But of course I am one of these people and thus here are my resolutions for this year. I have a theory that telling people/posting them somewhere will make me want to stick to them more. 1. Learn to knit I’ve been wanting to acquire some knitting skills for a long time but never actually tried. My goal is to be…

Birthday and Christmas Presents

I often forget the things that I’m given for birthdays and Christmas so I thought it’d be a good idea to make a kind of haul post for all the things I got as gifts last month so that I can look back and appreciate the lovely things that my friends and family have given me. Birthday Presents (December 12th) I’ve selected my favourite gifts but this includes most of them. Clockwise from top left: Romwe dress – This dress is adorable, it’s something a bit different for me but it’s lovely to wear. The top part isn’t as sheer…
