WHITE THREE WAYS






All white evry'thang.

Nouse's first edition of the summer term embraces everything white. SS'14 was all about one of the best shade around and I couldn't be happier.

Our lovely fashion editor and I styled three of our own all white looks, photographed by us in an amazing gallery on campus.

They will be in the latest edition and online next week and I'll also share exclusive snaps with you on here.

My first experience (for a paper) both in front of and behind the camera. 
Did someone say model?! I somehow think not.

MONDAY MOTIVATION #1


Welcome to new regular on the blog.

Monday motivation. To help us all get through this particular day of the week.

Every Monday (at some point) I will post the best quote that I've found that week, whatever it is about. Any suggestions from you guys would also be amazing!

For the first one I thought it only apt that I start with Dr.Seuss, the wisest guy around.

"The more you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

BOOKWORM


My beloved collection of coffee table books.

I'm quite impressed really with the number I've racked up over the last few years.
 I never stop asking for them and people never stop surprising me with the ones they find.  

They don't only look good but they are also the best source of inspiration when the Internet just isn't cutting it.

If I had to have a favourite?! It would definitely be Pictures by Tim Walker. It's the most beautiful book and the photos just never get old.

Books as follows from the top down:
Home Sweet Home BANKSY
The Art of Making Tees
Untitled
The Street Art Stencil Book
The Granny Alphabet TIM WALKER
The Stitch Bible
Vintage Fashion & Couture KERRY TAYLOR
Portrait of an Era READER'S DIGEST
Nick Knight
Vogue Model
Vogue Covers
(Can't remember that one!)

ISABEL MARANT PRE FALL '14











Oh Isabel how do you get it so right every time?! If only you could bottle some of your coolness...ok no that would be weird. But still...

For now. That hooded coat!! Speechless with wanting.

THREE STRIPE








Here they are. My new babies. The Gazelles. 

Fairly uncomfortable at first (the leather is so stiff it's like bowling shoes) they are now amazing. And the perfect monochrome addition to my wardrobe of colour...
(track my obsession with all things monochrome here, here & here!)

I also embraced a new trend with the purchase of these Mango culottes. They're the ones that Daria rocks in the campaign. I was unsure as to how they'd look on me but actually I love them. So comfy and easy to wear with anything.

It's currently rainy and drizzly outside so am dreaming of an evening like this one.

ROSES IN DECEMBER



"God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December"
J.M BARRIE

This is my beautiful new leather jewellery box from Anya Hindmarch. 
Personalised by my mum's handwriting, it is the best thing to have been given because it really is one of a kind.

The scent pictured is also a new one. Kenzo's FlowerbyKenzo. Smells really fresh and its the perfect scent for spring. And the bottle looks gorgeous on the shelf!

 Essay handed in now all I have to do is just revise. Yay.

APRIL HOTLIST



Spring is now well and truly upon us and I for one find it impossible to know what to wear. 
Even though the sun is out it’s just not quite warm enough for bare legs but then its too warm for tights. Oh the worries of us fashion victims!

Distressed jeans are the only things that seem to be the answer. So versatile & so cool, they are going to be a saving grace for this Spring (if I can find a pair that fits!-any suggestions welcome)

HELLO? REALITY?



The latest issue of i-D is perfection.

Daria on the front looking all minimalist and stuff, amazing articles (including one about the benefits of having a degree or not if you want to go into the creative industry...for someone already over halfway through their uni life, it was defo an eye opener!) 

I've already read it cover to cover and will probs be doing so again over the bank holiday weekend.

Hope you've got something fun lined up!

SIMPLE







Easy blue jeans and a white shirt. I'm not a big blue jeans kinda girl but these Levis are just perfect. Thinking I need to invest in some more pairs as they're the best transitional piece, especially of the distressed variety.

Also my new leather jacket from Zara-so lush! And shh...just letting you in on a secret...it's a fake!

The blossom trees at home are just so gorgeous. Perfect Easter tree and just too irresistible not to take a few snaps in front of them.

Have a happy Easter weekend everyone!

A BIT OF MISS MONROE













Model, photographer and just general all round superstar, Monroe Alvarez is living the dream.

Her photography is awesome. Ethereal shots of girls in the sun amongst others capture perfectly the kind of life that everyone wishes they were living. Carefree, dancing around looking beautiful.

And a model in her own right, covered in freckles, effortlessly gorgeous, it's safe to say that Miss Monroe is the one to be at the moment.

Check out her work on her blog. Or follow her on Instagram.

HIDDEN





Acting all shy hidden behind some tulips.

The light the other evening was just too good to miss. I love that time of day in the summer, the sun is starting to set and everything is softened. Just so beautiful.

So here I am making the most of it.
