Around christmas time, I always get that creative feeling, where I want to make something or do something interesting and festive, and document it on the blog. This year, I looked for ideas on Pinterest and found this amazing way to create some alternative christmas bokeh.
These beach huts at Wells-Next-The-Sea could be considered a work of art, each one decorated interestingly and individually, and they’re a perfect backdrop for fashion photo shoots. Here’s a close up of a few of my favourites.
It has been absolutely freezing here recently, so much so that I’ve had to resort to fur-lined leggings to keep my legs warm. Paired with a navy velvet coat, I’m ready to face the final moments of this year’s winter while staying on-trend.
Rio Nail Art Pen silver polish, Barry M glitter polish
Every year I’ve done festive novelty nail art, but this year I wanted to keep it simple, easy and quick, while maintaining the festive feel. This Barry M glitter polish is one of my fave glitters – I only wish the blue sparkles were green for this time of year.
I was feeling brave yesterday and went out to college in these monochrome check tapered trousers. There was once a day when I wouldn’t have dared to go out in these, and now look at me. Plus, how perfect is this beige Zara coat (which I got for £9 at the charity shop where I volunteer)? I couldn’t ask for a better bargain.
Sometimes I get a bit of an artistic craving, and use this to create sets on Polyvore. What I put together might not always seem to make complete sense, but they’re just colours and photos and words that I like and which satisfy my arty side.
Shooting with a hat on in the bitter cold wind is one of the hardest things to do. You have to battle with hair blowing everywhere, whilst trying not to look too cold or forgetting about face. I think I managed to salvage some shots where my face is half decent in the end, though!
Thrifted coat (available on eBay HERE), Bershka jeans, Primark boots
There’s something about these great fluffy teddybear coats that a lot of people are loving at the moment. For me, I love how you can find one in almost any colour imaginable in the thrift shops. My mum is selling tons of these fluffies on her eBay shop right HERE if you want a bargain!
