Long Fashionable Coats/Ponchos

Now, recently looking around at people on the high street there are loads of people now wearing these long fashionable coats. They are mainly for look as they don't really keep you warm and a lot of fashion students at my college wear them. They are becoming quite in at the moment and most shops are now selling large quantities of them. Also Ponchos are becoming quite well known to be quite fashionable as well. I just recently bought a tartan one, and it's my favourite fashion item I own. Here are a few that I have seen around in shops at these selection of stores.



Zara - Poncho Coat
£149.00




Zara - Long Coat
£156.00




TOPSHOP - Long Line Throw On Dogtooth Duster
£79.00




Urban Outfitters - Cope Sheer Soft Trench Coat
£75




Bershka - Oversize Neoprene Coat
£59.99




H&M - Poncho
£29.99


I am hopefully going to be purchasing one soon, but can't decide what to get and which brand. Let me what you think of these sorts of outerwear, and what styles you like!

BEING YOURSELF


'Being Yourself', a lot of people find it hard to do this, as it seems so simple... Everyone is there own self and everyone is different. When you are growing up you are trying to find yourself and what you represent and this takes some people a life time to figure out. 

When you are young and going to your different schools, you try to fit in blend with others. This draws people away from finding out and being who they truly are. It's a physiological thing, when we do things to pleasure others needs and not their own. Because as you would say when you young, you would be 'weird'. This gives children the thought that they have to be 'a sheep' and not the odd one out. If everyones the same, then the world would be a boring place to be. Our world is like what it is because everyones different. If you copy people and not be you, its stupid as it's like your wasting yourself to be like others. The worst age for most youngsters is around the teen ages. But the environment is also a massive part of who you turn out to be. Although it depends what sort of person you are. Some people get absorbed in the environment and with the people and always stay the same or similar to how they were when they started their. But others can slower develop more about who they are when they leave.

With me, I have been influenced a lot by where I have been to school. But I never lost my true self when I was in my different environments. I wouldn't obviously be the person who I am today if I didn't go to those certain places. But most of who I am now is mostly who I would be even if I had gone to other locations. My previous school, I never thought I could ever be my self for a lot of reasons. However, now I am very happy where I am and can be my complete self with a little parts from the places I have been brought up. 

You start to learn more about who you truly are the older you get, as you are getting more and more experience. My point of this blog post was to get everyone to think about who they are and how they want them selves interpreted by others. I hope you found this interesting, and let me know if you want me to do more posts like this!

American Apparel Autumn Collection 2014



I used to be absolutely obsessed with American Apparel, but kind of went off it as it was so expensive. But recently, as starting off at Uni, people from there have been getting me back into it again. Also I am in London, I see a lot of their stores! So I thought I would show you some of their Autumn clothes.

Monel 9 Eyeglass
£27.00
Colour - Black

These glasses have such a vintage look to them, thats what stands out for me. Also the gold in the glasses adds a touch of class to them and makes them a bit more smarter. If you are a hipster, like to dress in Vintage clothing or just love wearing fashionable glasses, these are for you!


Snake Shawl Cardigan
£66.00
Colours - Navy/Ivory and Black/Ivory

This cardigan is so stylish! And is something thats perfect for Autumn as you aren't sure what the weather will be like. The colours it comes in are really admirable, and will go will a lot of different outfits. Also it just look so comfortable and cosy to wear and it hangs really well on you.

Gingham Pocket Skirt
£42.00
Colours - White

I'm not usually a fan of skirts that hang on the shins, but this one looks so flawless. It's good for people that have a good figure and for people that don't. This is because the design of it and how it sits of your hips. It would also suit people that are small and tall. Just LUSH!

Pencil Jean
£78.00
Colours - Black/White, Dark Stone Wash Indigo and Medium Stone Wash Indigo

I LOVEEEEE these jeans and all the other colours it comes in as well! They just give you such a nice shape and make your legs look extra long! I would defiantly invest in a pair of these, they are GORGEOUS! Also as high wasted jeans are so in at the moment.

Unisex Waffle Mesh Cardigan
£52.00
Colours - Black and White

This is quite an refreshing cardigan, as its not what you would expect but is really nice! Also again perfect for the weather, and for people that are in hot countries. You could always you it as a sports jacket as well, as it would be great to just slip on after a workout!


Let me know what you think of the pieces of clothing! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

Designer Labels


Designer Labels is quite a big subject in the fashion world, with most people wanting to have designer clothing and accessories. There are plenty of brands to choose from that will make people think your 'trendy', with what you wear. Designer Label is a term most often applied to luxury items. Upper middle class are perhaps the most commonly targeted customers. Designer Label companies use their smaller and cheaper merchandise, aimer at the middle class, such a wallets, fashion jewellery , key-rings and small accessories, to make the majority of their income. Whilst the more expensive pieces such as haute couture, high jewellery, hand-bags, shoes and even furnishings are usually reserved for the wealthier upper-class clientele.


Designer Labels aren't just restricted to the fashion industry. Many cars and motorcycle companies are regarded as them. It just means that they make their vehicles to a higher standard than the average manufactures. Many people consider designer labels to be a status symbol. For example their logos, representing the brand as a whole.

Now a days, and it's getting worse as time goes on, teens feel more and more peer pressured into buying 'Designer labels'. This is to seem up to date with the trends and make sure they are the same as everyone else. I understand because I am one of those teenagers... We feel that we must buy clothing that only has a designer quality to it. Which is what our world has come too, which will probably continue for a long time.






























Thanks for reading! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. Will try to post more regularly now! Moving in a week and a bit, so might be quite busy though.

MAKE UP FOR EVER!


I have been wanting to purchase Make up Forever ever since I watched this Youtube video of a girl that has serious acne that recommend it! This is the link: Youtube..  The makeup covered up her acne so well that I wanted it to get it to check it out for myself! Even though my acne is no where near as bad as this ladies, I thought that if she could cover hers up with this that mine would defiantly cover up well. There are lots of good reviews on the Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Foundation, with a lot of beauty bloggers saying that they love it! You will also see in the picture the Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer which is alright.. I think the foundation is much better, but I think to get a good coverage has to be applied with a brush!

The brush that I use in in the picture and its from Cheeky, although you can obviously use any brush. I have found this brush partially good with covering up my acne though! It applies evenly and the right coverage for your skin. The Make Up For Ever website provides you with this page that explains how to use their makeup and instructions. Routine HD. This is what Make up For Ever says about HD : Today HD is part of every day life, with HD technology every woman wants to enjoy a perfect, natural and flawless complexion. The HD complexion products use innovative formulas to create a new generation of makeup which is both invisible on HD cameras and to the naked eye.

As summer is certainly upon us, I will need to purchase a more tanned concealer and foundation so I don't look washed out in the sun! Even though the Foundation retails at : £30.95 it is worth it!
I also purchased the Make Up For Ever HD powder which I have been liking. Although I wouldn't recommend it as there are lots of powders in the market that are much cheaper and that are very similar.

If you interested in finding out about more of their products, visit their website! If you looking to study Makeup, I would check out their Makeup School to see if they have one in your country!

Thank you for reading, and hope you have a good rest of your weekend :)

Summer Cornwall Weekend


I have FINALLY finished my GCSE exams! I can't believe it's over, and that I am free now to get on with my life. I will be starting at a art collage in September, where I can be myself and do the things I love!
I needed to get away for a couple days from my house and my surroundings. So, I went on a couple days trip with a could of old friends to Cornwall. We stayed in this lovely house in Falmouth, right by the sea.


We spent most of the days out at sea, on one of our friends boats. It was gorgeous weather throughout the days we were there. It did help me to forget about work and to just relax.. 
On Saturday we started out getting some food for the boat ride and then looked around the shops as one of my friends is going on a National Geographic Expedition and needed to get clothing for it. After that we set off on the boat to some beaches. We had a little swim and jumped off rocks into the clear turquoise waters. Lying on the boat, reading a book in the beaming sun was just heaven!
On Sunday we were back on the boat, early in the morning off to do some kayaking. We booked them for 2 hours, although when we went off the boat the second time to swim around I hurt myself getting  off the kayak. This cut the kayaking short and had to get back to the boat straight away. Other then that incident, it was a great trip!

It was a lovely peaceful atmosphere to be in, and would love to visit soon! And I would defiantly recommend going there!

It's strange because I already feel relaxed and becoming more of me thats been hiding for years. I bought some colourful hair dye to put on my hair after I bleach it! I feel like this is an end of an era, and will miss my old life! But can't wait for what happens next..

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather and see you on my next post!
