I started the year so motivated with my blog style and personal fashion style, I posted a lot per week even with a continuous Friday Favourites and Sunday Summary posts. My outfits were very dark and wintery but quite sophisticated at the same time. I wore my knee length boots almost everyday that I had bought from Primark in December 2014 time. I started blogging in my bedroom on January the 3rd as the weather was too cold to go outside. I collaborated with House of Fraser with their Tory Burch collection which was so lovely to receive the t-shirt in a wonderfully wrapped box you can read about it here. Then I started venturing out into the City on my own, in hope to meet someone to become blogger friends with, I would always dream of company even though I was contented being on my own its nice to have someone to talk to about your blogging passion.
This month was the most I’ve blog posted for this entire year! I ended up going to a Vintage Market down at the Marina and bumped into a fellow Blogger Oroma. I am so thankful for my courage and bravery to attend the Market alone and actually recognise her as a blogger and ask her for her blog address. She was holding a camera and was about to steal my shot by jumping in front of me so obviously that was a giveaway. Since then we have been close blogger friends helping each other out over this year and its been so fantastic. With regards to press and features this year, Primark have featured a few of the looks above on their Twitter and their Primania fashion style page.
ASOS created a style crush page for me which was so amazing to look at! I was also selected as one of the top 50 most stylist people in Wales and this means a lot to be honest, especially chosen by the lovely Wales Online.
I collaborated with another photographer I met through Oroma, got featured on the Lookbook Instagram page. You can read the blog post about the outfit over here its called Marsala.
I then attended my first blog event of the year which was Smashbox down in Cardiff and then continued to watch London Fashion Week 2015 live stream, I am dreaming of attending it every year so fingers crossed 2016 will be lucky.
March was such a fantastic month, I started doing regular blog photo shoots with Oroma all of the photos above were taken by her. I got featured on Topshop Instagram page with the second look above. New look kept on retweeting a few of my 70s inspired outfit posts such like the third and fourth outfit. Once I caught on to the Seventies Spring trend, I was hooked and I really enjoyed wearing a much warmer toned palette instead of Monochrome. I got invited to do a huge shopping spree at McArthur Glen and I chose Oroma to come with us, we were given £300 to spend on whatever we wanted, with travel and food costs included. This was probably the best collaboration yet with a brand, well the most expensive. It was such a luxurious day and we really felt like VIP’s, you can read about the trip here.
April was a busy month with Uni work so I had to put blogging aside and I can remember setting up my final year exhibition and I got a message saying I had been featured on New Looks website for my 70s style. Which I am so proud of Oroma for choosing this location and for taking my photos, all of which have pretty much been featured its been so successful.
So my lens broke in May, it fell down with the tripod when I was taking my own photos. The photos above were taken by Oroma again with her lovely Nikon Camera. To begin the Summer Holidays I got invited to attend the Colour Festival down in Cardiff, so I took some uni friends along with me and that was a lot of fun, probably the best time of 2015. Another highlight was when Oroma and I got invited down to review Five Guys in Cardiff and the meal was heavenly.
Thats a round up of my part one of my blog overview of 2015, I will be posting the other half soon. The year started with such motivation and drive for my blog I am hoping it can continue into 2016 and hopefully start posting regularly again. But for now the dissertation deadline is looming and it is not fun to write it during the Christmas Holidays.
Lots of love,
