STARTING ART UNI!

I can now kind of call myself a uni student (even though I was calling my self that last year!). I will be starting my Foundation course in Art and Design at the beginning of September, which I'm SO excited about! As the time is nearly nigh, I've been doing a bit of internet shopping. Now, art university is the best place to express yourself and not worry as much about society (even though you shouldn't care anyway). So i've been going onto all these AWESOME crazy clothing and accessory online stores. My style is kind of vintage/oriental/colourful wackiness, which is what i'm going to try and mix with my things in my wardrobe. I've been writing lists of things other then art supplies that I 'need' for when I start!

Here are a few brands that I have loved their style of :

They all have very different styles!


NASTY GAL
The shop has grown to become an international style source offering both new and vintage clothing, shoes, and accessories.





DOLLS KILL
Here is where you will find clothing inspiration pulled from the digital Tumblr girl world, bad acid trips, underground counterculture and stylized gutter punks.






MANIÈRE DE VOIR
Manière De Voir is a UK-based fashion brand created to fulfil the need of fashion-forward enthusiasts, who desire trend-focused contemporary designs with competitive prices.






SHOP JEEN
We pride ourselves in offering our customers the greatest range of jewelry and accessories, from independent designers to the most current trends, and for budgets of every shape and size.





So maybe if your in a similar position, hopefully i've given you a bit of inspiration and info!

Have a great day everyone!

AQUAORA's New Collection


Hello Everyone! I'm feeling really excited because yesterday (very early in the morning), I sort of launched my brand 'AQUAORA'. What I mean by that is the new collection is on the website, although selected items won't be available to purchase until the 1st August.
This has been a longgggg... journey up until now, but it has FINALLY happened! We did our first shoot for the brand on the 10th July, which went really well! Since then I have been on holiday, so all my work has been from abroad. Although, what I have been able to accomplish is really amazing in my eyes these last couple of weeks.

I have started off the brand with some swimwear, which includes bikini tops and bottoms and some swimsuits. Then we have the sportswear, which includes a crop top, shorts, and leggings. Last of all the dresses, which has just started out as one at the moment. I have got lots of ideas for the future of 'AQUAORA', which I'm sure I'll be announcing very soon! But in the meantime please go follow us on Social Media : @aquaorafashion

2015 Spring : Makeup, Hair & Nail Trends

Spring is right round the corner if you are in the northern hemisphere (like me) and go by the astronomical seasons. As I haven't done a beauty post in a while, I thought I would do a makeup, hair and nail spring trends. I few things that have become popular this year already, beauty related, which are a bit strange are; Frizzy Hair, Smudged Mascara and Eyebrow Extensions. I'm learning things about beauty everyday, and looking back on pictures of me when I was a younger when I hardly knew anything made me think about what if I did have all this knowledge then. Anyways, I am glad that i'm getting the insight now otherwise I wouldn't be into beauty as much.

Make-Up Trends for this Spring:


  • Mixing Lipstick with Eyeliner to create an Eyeshadow
  • Fine Eyeliner
  • Berry Lipstick
  • No Makeup




















Hair Trends for this Spring:


  • Coming Undone Styles
  • Ice White Colouring
  • Plaits and Braids
  • Choppy Fringe



















Nail Trends for this Spring:


  • Negative Space
  • Skin Tone
  • Metallic Foils
  • Opaque Glitters

















Hope this gives you some inspiration and insight into how to look this Spring! It sure has for me...
See you on my next post :)

P.s. None of these pictures are mine.

Following My Young Footsteps


I have really enjoyed being back in my home city (London). It's made me more relaxed and more independent. I have now been back for around 7 months, wow... that has gone by so quick! And I am really happy to have moved back at this point in my life! There have been ups and downs since we moved back, but that's life, you can't expect it to be perfect.

Long walks has become a daily/weekly thing as there's so much for me to explore and discover. Also I find it a good way to stay fit and healthy, and I enjoy sightseeing so might as well not bother with public transport... Otherwise how else am I going to catch up on the 9 years of not being here. As I have just had my course assessment for all the work we have done so far, I thought I would take the opportunity to walk for longer. So I decided to walk around where I used to live (which is only round the corner from where I am now), and follow my young footsteps. A lot of memories came back to me of my childhood and it was nice to be able to relive that as it was one of the most happiest times of my life.


I took my camera and my phone which has a fish eye attached to it. This was because at the moment I have been trying to take my camera everywhere I go, so that it will make me take more photos. As I haven't had time recently to do my photoshoots, I wanted to make sure that my photography passion doesn't disappear. The Fish Eye lens is from Urban Outfitters, and I LOVE it! I recommend getting it if you like that sort of photography. If you want to see how the fish eye pictures come out, go over to my Instagram and have a look for yourself!


Hope everyone is having a good week, and will see you on my next post! Love you all!

Pure Alchemy - Secret Garden Sunday Show (1st March 2015)



This Sunday (1st March) at the RHS Secret Garden Show at London Lindley Hall my mother (Rosemary Moore) will be launching her new line of scarves. The brand is called 'Pure Alchemy' which are digitally printed rose scarves, encapsulated with pure rose otto.  These scarves are to bring you closer to nature and wellbeing.

It will come in three sizes: 65x65cm, 100x100cm, 136x136cm

You can either purchase them in silk chiffon or silk satin all the sizes for the moment.

The scarves will range from £100-£200 and can be shipped internationally.



If your interested to know more about the rose oil its self and how it can help you, please read the next bit.

'Antidepressant: Rose Oil boosts self esteem, confidence, and mental strength while efficiently fighting depression. They can be very helpful to drive away depression arising for any reason, and it also relieves anxiety. As an antidepressant, patients of acute depression or those undergoing rehabilitation can be given routine and regular doses of this essential oil to bring a positive boost into their lives. This oil is widely used in aromatherapy and invokes positive thoughts, spiritual relaxation and feelings of joy, happiness and hope.Roses are widely considered the most beautiful flowers in the world. The flower is an integral part of innumerable stories, legends, myths and legacies. With its varied colors, incomparable fragrance and range of shapes and sizes, you can find one for every mood and occasion. People who do not know about any of its medicinal properties can still tell you of one undeniable property; a beautiful, red rose can invoke romantic feelings in even the hardest of hearts.
The Essential Oil of Rose is extracted by steam distillation of fresh Damascus Rose (Rosa Damascena, as it is known among botanists) and is composed of hundreds of components, out of which the major contributors are Citronellol, Citral, Carvone, Citronellyl Acetate, Eugenol, Ethanol, Farnesol, Stearpoten, Methyl Eugenol, Nerol, Nonanol, Nonanal, Phenyl Acetaldehyde, Phenylmenthyl Acetate and Phenyl Geraniol. Damascus Roses are the preferred variety because they are the most fragrant species and are believed to be the original red roses with strongest aroma and highest oil content.' (

If you live in London or are down on Sunday please come and visit us! It starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm. Also if you would like to order one of the scarves, there will be a website up and running soon, but for the moment please email Rosemary at rosemary@pure-alchemy.uk
