Berlin Trip in Clothing

Good Evening Internet!

So as I previously said or wrote (or whatever!) I’ve put together a little look book of my holiday outfits. Just a few notes though… I did actually have more than one pair of shoes with me but unfortunately my ugly Topshop sandals completely wrecked my feet (which was incredibly sad as I love any sort of ugly footwear so so so much) I will attempt to wear them again but maybe with socks for extra ugliness? I don’t know….. Also I look really miserable in most of these pictures so yeah sorry about that but they were the pictures where you could see my clothing best. I’ll try to note where I got my everything from as that’s what people do in these sort of posts but some of it is like really old (my leather jacket for example is nearly 7 years old!!)
Shirt- Urban Outfitters, T shirt- Primark, Jeans- Zara, Chelsea boots- New Look, Necklace- Primark

Hat- Primark, Jumper, trousers and sandals- Topshop, Bag- Oh my love 
 Leather jacket and dress- Topshop

 Necklace and T shirt- Primark, Watch- Michael Kors 

Dungarees- Marks and Spencer, Vest- Primark, Bag- River Island 

So that’s all for now… Goodnight!

Berlin…Summer 2014

Greetings Internet!

I’ve recently returned from Berlin and as I promised myself, I’m posting some pictures. In reality I took a ridiculous amount of holiday photos 
(I have managed to cut them down to about 200 on my computer) so I didn’t want to do a photo overload on my blog. We managed to see so much of Berlin yet I could have spent a month there and still not have seen it all! As can be witnessed here; we saw plenty of street art (an obsession of mine- even though I’m not cool enough to do it myself), the most amazing food selection I’ve ever ever seen at Ka De We department store, various art galleries and ancient history museums and we even ran into the Gay Pride parade which I was so hoping we would!

I’m just getting myself back to reality now and ready for work tomorrow. My doctor also informed me that I have a mild gluten intolerance shortly before I went away so I’m trying to get used to living gluten free since returning which is pretty challenging. I think I’ll do a holiday look book tomorrow evening if I get time so until then…. Goodnight!

Making things

My first weekend in Aberdeen is over. My mother came to visit me so that I had some to have a wander round with and get my bearings. We also went to the seaside and I have some pictures of this that I might upload… My only reservation right now is that the seagulls around here are pretty terrifying! I also managed to get this pair of shorts put together at some point during the weekend; they actually started life from a pattern for a ‘sexy’ Halloween dress: who would have guessed it? Anyway as you can see my camera has trouble capturing anything that isn’t a close up (I’ve owned it for nearly 2 years and still not figured out why so I’m starting to think it’s broken- if anyone out there knows why this is happening I’d love to know!(except the fact that I might just be stupid)). But yeah I took the close up as due to the blurring it’s hard to make out how gathered these are and just how much fabric is involved. I’ll be off to Berlin this week so I’ll probably do a holiday post soon.

New beginnings

I’ve decided to have a go at blogging. Mostly because it’s something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Also because I now live in Aberdeen-which is a big move from my hometown. I actually don’t know anyone yet or anything about Aberdeen and I thought that was a good excuse to push myself to do something creative with all my spare time (at home in Newcastle I had family and friends to spend it with!) So this is a little place I plan to document my creative work (I’m a fashion graduate), some DIY stuff (I like to make things), possibly some outfit posts and just my general  misadventures I get into whilst trying to get used to my new Scottish home!

P.S I will post something more interesting soon!!
