Back to normality..

So I have been AWOL for a very long time.
The past 4 months have been hectic. First year exams and deadlines, interning in head offices and I moved twice in London as well as my parents moving house too. With that it's been chaos, and most importantly- no internet! Now finally settled, with internet, and falling back into a routine with Uni starting next month I can get back to normality.
Hope you've had an amazing summer, sad it's practically over in England with the grey skies and cold breeze- I'm in jumpers already! Can't wait for more posts ahead ♥

SS14 Fashion Trends; My Summary...

So excited for the summer (especially the weather) and the fashion trends this year, they're with styles I love; femininity, colour and fresh.
Here is my summary of my favourite trends to look forward to and the styles to grab on to this Spring/Summer! ♥

  • Crop top and the Midi.
    A trend that has strengthened from SS13 and AW13 I'm sure this Summer will be at the height of this trend so tone up those tummies to show them off! Definitely a favourite of mine as it's paired with one of my favourite garments the midi skirt, either pencil skirt or 50's flare it's pure beautiful.

  • Arty
    Designers got creative for this Spring Sumer with the inspiration of the paintbrush, strongly seen on the catwalk designs here by Prada and Celine (below). Keep your eyes peeled for many imitations this season, below are just a couple from the high street by Zara and River Island.


  • Sporty
    Another trend going stronger then ever this season is the androgynous look of the sporty luxe. Whether it is a pair of tailored trousers or a bomber jacket, paired with heels or flats its comfy chic at its best.

 
  • White, Pastels, Monochrome and YELLOW
    Already mentioned white above and my favourite colour scheme Pastels which comes hand in hand with Spring like floral prints. Monochrome has made another comeback this year whether it's a black and white print or teaming both colours together you can definitely be trendy with this look. My favourite of all the colours this season however is the zesty yellow! Not really done as it's such a strong and daring colour for people, but after being sick of black on black I love how colourful and lively this mellow colour is bringing life into collections in stores! Have fun with it ♥

10 Random Facts...

The thing I love most about blogs, and my favourite types, are that they're personal to each 'author'. Even with many similarities they're all individual. Bringing me onto todays post of 10 random facts that you don't know about me, that are personally individual and represent me even if just a little bit. I have seen bloggers do this and even though I haven't been nominated as such I'd still like to share with you just so you know a little bit more about me  ♥

  1. My initials spell NEW
    .
  2. I got my first Iphone for my 20th Birthday (January this year)
    .
  3. I'm a foodie; especially chicken and chocolate (not together, that would be weird.)
    .
  4. I wear socks to bed almost always.
    .
  5. The furthest I have travelled to is Mexico (twice.)
    .
  6. My current favourite TV show is Suits (obsessed, and I haven't watched much shows since I moved to London as I don't have a TV!)
    .
  7. At Starbucks I order a Caramel Macchiato. In Costa I'll have a Caramel Latte.
    .
  8. I have never been to a concert or festival (sad? yeh...) or watched Finding Nemo!
    .
  9. The best cocktail I've had was a called a 'bun bun'
    .
  10. When I was younger I used to want to be an estate agent. I even wrote a poem about it...

Selfies...






For weeks the famous Oscars Selfie by Ellen, whom I love by the way,
has been reconstructed by many. The word 'Selfie' is even in the
Oxford Dictionary now. People hate them, but I love them. They're documented
memories of a time and place which you were involved in.
Not so much the pouty 'in my car' ones or bathroom mirror ones (which I do shamefully admit to doing),
so here I encourage selfies so in 10 years time you remember that memory ♥


Celebrating St. Patricks day on Sunday at Trafalgur Square, London.

Happy St. Patricks Day!!

 


Yesterday I had a great day. I spent a beautiful sunny Sunday in Trafalgar Square, London with thousands of others doing the exact thing; celebrating St. Patricks day. It is today but of course, this is England and it's a Monday so you couldn't close the roads and cause such a riot on a weekday. The weather was gorgeous, my company was great and the day was lovely! I've never really celebrated this Irish tradition but since I'm in England's capital I knew a lot of Irish wouldn't want to let it pass, so I followed the leprechauns in the parade and had a swell time- looking forward to next year! ♥

A little bit weird or a little bit romantic? First Kiss...

If you haven't seen this video you are missing out from the current 37million that have.
I'm pretty sure the main reason for its high amount of views is that it shows the fine line between awkwardness and romance. I have no doubt butterflies were in their stomachs from nervs and possibly more. What do you think of the video? Definitely something different from the cliches of 21st century videos ♥

Hello Spring...






Today was a beautiful day.
The first day of spring.
Daffodils and daisy's are in full bloom, the smell of freshly cut grass is in the air and the sun is now at the perfect temperature where you can wear sleeveless tops and sandals! Sandals! I loved it and for the first time in a long time, I welcome Spring with no hurry for summer-
just stay lovely Spring! ♥
