Gold Rose Brocade Leggings- PRIMARK
Black Leather Heels- KOI COUTURE

Hey Guys sorry for the lack of posts, I have been wrapped up with University work again. I still haven't  gotten myself into a routine yet, but I have been spending way too much money on clothes. I have almost created a whole new autumn wardrobe. For this season I have decided I want to look more int the pre-raphelite paintings, and go for something a bit more sophisticated. My palette is now made up of royal golds and dark blacks. They colours go together so well and fits in nicely with the colours of the changing trees. I have started becoming more confident in taking photos in public and I was so nervous. I bought these Brocade patterned leggings from Primark, I don't usually shop there because its always so busy, but I've found first thing in the morning is usually the quietest so I might pop down and buy a few more things. But at the moment the shops which are really catching my eye are Accessorise, they are doing really good black and gold accessories such as fans, masquerade masks, well to be honest I just love their advert take a look yourself here. Topshop has a good in store sale as well, which I've been splurging out on. I will do a shopping haul post tomorrow to show you all the things I am loving right now. But mainly I am getting inspired by Dolce and Gabbana's Fall collection.

Hey Guys sorry for the absence again, I have been so busy with my University Project, and this weekend I have time off so I can blog! I have falling in love with Dolce and Gabbana's AW13 collection, as you can see from all the gold baroque prints and royal jewellery. I guess its the whole fantasy side that has captured me. I can now pretend I'm a darker version of Marie Antoinette prancing around the place in my black and gold outfits. I have bought a lot of things to add to the collection since I've been living in the City. First of all it started with a pair of leggings from Primark for £8 then slowly taken over by bits and bobs from the charity shops. Nothing else matters now that I am listening to some lovely Brocade music with the sun shining through my window.

Hey guys thanks for sticking by me whilst I settled into University. Its still all up in the air at the moment so trying my hardest to fit in time for blogging. I have moved to a temporary pent house for the weekend and its brilliant. I have a balcony that over looks the sea, a bath tub and a kitchen, to top it all off I have more secret rooms on the other side woo. I have made a few friends mostly guys because I feel more comfortable with them, seeing as I have three older brothers. Its only been my first week since Ive flown the nest but already there has been so much drama. I guess its all about learning life experiences and for me I am most probably three years behind everyone else. I feel so vulnerable moving to a big city as a country girl. There are so many lessons to learnt and I hope everything works out in the end. But for now I'm enjoying the amazing sunny weather and this awesome view.

I think it was last monday I got my first package in my University Mail box, which was so fab when the receptionist handed them over, of course I have to explain to a lot of people about what I do. Some really don't understand, some are happy for me then others can become bitter. You have to be so careful what you say and who you trust which is definitely something I need to keep reminding myself. But anyway my parcel was from Becky B Wardrobe it was this brilliant mint lace dress with a beautiful organza layered skirt. I think its one of my favourite dresses yet, the fit is perfect, its a little short but nothing bloomers cant sort out. I know its so SS12 with its pastel hues but I really don't care, my love for tea dresses and girly things will never go away. I don't own anything this colour so it really stands out in my wardrobe. I matched it with a cut out floral collar from Chicwish and it reminded me of this issue of Vogue with Lana Del Rey. I've bought hair extensions now so I don't have to keep wearing my wigs for photos, i guess that another reason whats stopping me from going out and about to take photos. There are some beautiful locations down here I just need to pluck up the courage to just do it.
Anyway this is just a brief catch up I'm sure I'll post again soon with more updates about my new chapter.

Lots of Love
