BROADWAY MARKET



The second half of my day trip to East London, aka my favourite area ever. Broadway Market is a treasure chest in itself, brimming with endless food stalls and well dressed twenty-somethings. It is the best place to be on a saturday afternoon for people watching and eating. Street style spotting and pho are two things that will unconditionally appeal to me so it's no wonder that Broadway Market is a new favourite of mine. 
Coming across cool street art/grafitti ain't half bad either: any excuse to take a good photo is alright with me! I'm a narcissist, I know. :(

EAST (guess who's back!)

Topshop top, H&M skirt, Nike Roshe Runs

Cue the fanfares/that eminem song because: I'm baaaaaaack!
(Cue tumble-weed?)
After a (very) long hiatus, I've managed to come out of my cave and make a comeback to blogging. And what better way to do it than by shooting in East London with my dog? Isn't he the most photogenic dog ever?! I may be a tiddle biased but only because I know it's 100% true.
As it turns out, my mother actually has an excellent eye for photographs and whilst wandering around the back roads of Columbia Road, we came across this beautiful retro Beetle parked in front of these pretty blue doors.
Since I've finished all my exams for this year I'll hopefully be much more proactive socially (lol) as well as working on the blog. I've decided that I have to make the most out of my extremely long summer and actually attempt at talking to people other than my family and dog, and maybe rely less on Netflix and Vice documentaries to provide me with a source of entertainment. Hopefully this means a lot of food and a lot of adventures. 
I'm also hoping I'll get the chance to completely rebuild my wardrobe: during study leave I came to the realisation that I'd been dressing myself in t-shirts that had gone unwashed for more than 3 weeks and the same pair of jeans, which feature knee holes that practically allow my leg to fall out. Yep. It seems like my hygiene and physical appearance were definitely my top priority during the exam period. I wouldn't be surprised if someone had mistaken me for a homeless person. 
So with that being said, it looks like it's back to online shopping in a bid to stock up my half empty wardrobe. With a devastating expenditure in the last week, it looks like I'm on a path of destruction. Can't stop, won't stop. SOMEONE NEEDS TO HIDE MY DEBIT CARD FROM ME #help

Vogue Festival


A little roundup of the Vogue Festival from a couple of weeks back! I've been stupidly busy with school and such, with GCSEs coming up in just over a month. 
This year's Festival was fantastic, with great talks from Lucinda Chambers, Alexa Chung and Amanda Harlech as well as the life-ruining supers. 
By life ruining, I mean that Karlie, Rosie, Edie and Jourdan (yes, we're on first name terms) are all stupid amounts of gorgeous in the flesh that they ruin your life. Not to mention the fact that are also incredibly charismatic and charming in their own way. Out of the three talks I went to, Sunday morning's with the Supers was definitely the most entertaining with each model telling their anecdotes about boys, test shoots with Mario Testino at the age of 13 and the infamous models' apartments. 
Tip: don't take selfies with models, they'll enhance the fact that you look like a potato by at least 10000.I was super lucky to meet all four of the models (and Chung!) after their talk but obviously they all completely upstaged me by looking effortlessly radiant/flawless/whatever in each one. You can also take a peek at one of the only decent photos I got with Karlie on my Instagram, just before she did one of her live shoots on site. Following our little one-on-one chat, I can now assure you that we are best friends. Yep, we're best friends. 
Despite all the supermodel mania, I think one of my favourite parts of the weekend was unexpectedly meeting the wonderful Charly Cox from Style the Natives. If you guys aren't aware of her blog, I definitely recommend that you check it out. She is SO smart and beautiful and talented. Not to mention the fact that she's practically besties with Jack and Finn Harries! It was so nice to meet such an inspirational creative that's taken control of her life in an unconventional way. Everytime I think about our conversation I'm left feeling inspired.
Any who, I'm sorry for my lack of presence on the blog but it doesn't seem like I'll be around for the next couple of months with all the studying that I have to do. I hate to be so annoying/repetitive and sound like a broken record but these school is super important at the moment!

SUNDAY


Forever21 top, Monki Kimono, H&M jeans, jewellery from Indonesia
Happy Sunday lovers! Sorry for my absence (again), I may/may not have been distracted by the fantastic weather recently. Although it isn't normal to be having 18 degree weather at this time of year (for England anyway), I'm not complaining in the slightest!
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll find that I've been procrastinating in the highest form by whisking myself away to London and 'studying' at juice bars/cafes. The weather has been wonderful recently and it would certainly be wrong of me not to take advantage of it, surely. Am I right?
Sadly, I haven't been documenting my outfits along the way but today I finally remembered and forced my sister into photographing me in the garden. It seems that the more I do this.... the more awkward I get in front of a camera. Almost everything worn has already been featured on the blog, except this new cut-away top for Forever21 which I am obsessed with! It's definitely going to be a favourite in the coming months. 
I'm not going to bore you with all the talk of studying because, as you all can probably guess, I have done very little of it. What I have done is updated my wardrobe with a few bits and pieces so hopefully I'll be able to post about those soon. 
Hope you're all doing well! xo
