Kim And Kendall Feud

Whilst I assure those around me that I despise the Kardashians, I will admit that they are a truly beautiful family who have somehow managed to make millions through doing not much at all. With fragrances, Books, Adult and Clothing Ranges, and Makeup collections the family are certainly raking in the cash! And that's only from the 3 older sisters and the deals that we know about. Anyway there's always something crazy going on in the family which is not really a surprise, with that many vain people in just one family toes are bound to be stepped on actually scrap that crushed! Anyway we all know about Kim's rags to riches story, from hideous nobody who somehow became a groupie for Paris Hilton until the infamous sex tape was revealed and she managed to scrape together another money to completely transform herself and put her family on the map. Now just recently I found out how much Kim put up with from Paris, with demands to clean her closet and being told when and when not to speak it's no suprise that she decided she would seek fame some other way. And what easier way than an x rated leaked tape??

Anyway Kim has got to a point where she doesn't need Paris and the pair haven't bumped into each other in a significantly long time. And with Paris claiming she "Created" Kim which is not that much of a lie, it wouldn't be suprising if Kim went out of her way to avoid the outspoken heiress. So you can imagine Kim's annoyance when snaps have been posted  of Paris, Nicole and her supermodel sister Kendall Jenner together. I'm sure that with Kendall's success as such a young age she'll begin to feel outdated and it's said that she's becoming really envious of the 18 year olds slender frame. I say go for it Kendall I'd like to see her coming out of her shell and really having some fun, I mean she's so young and she must feel under so much pressure not just from her family but from her fans and the world that are watching her every move. So how will this end? Who knows. Kim will probably turn on the waterworks and run straight to hubby and then mummy to see what can be done, I'm sure if Kanye has his way Kendall will be housebound for the rest of her life.

Happy Thursday.x

Blogging Advice

Whilst I'm still new to this game I feel that I have learnt a fair amount whilst blogging, If you're a newbie like me I know it can seem as if your blog is going nowhere. But I've learnt that we only think this if we compare ourselves to others and their success, yes I do it too! It's easy to get frustrated when you see successful bloggers doing so well when you're trying so hard and barely leaving the ground, but we all work at different paces and all good things take time right? So many times I've found myself moaning about not having any current collabarations, a lack of followers (However I appreciate the fantastic ones that I have!) up until now that is. Because when I look at inspirational bloggers I find that they're all just having fun with what they're doing, and hey we're all doing this because we have a passion right?! And we all seem to forget to often how lucky we are to have a hobby that we  find real enjoyment in, I know just a few years back I didn't have any real interests and I honestly don't know what I did with all my time. So here's some advice that has helped me and motivated me to carry on doing my thang:

-Do not focus on followers, collaborations and all that mumbo jumbo. Whilst its great to develop a large following and snag free clothes it's not the most important thing. Focus on making your blog great by sharing your passion, I find blogging really satisfying and that's a reward in itself.

-Put yourself out there, using social media platforms is the best way to create a following and get the word around about your blog. With every fashion label using the internet as much as we are, getting recognised by them is so much easier now! Tagging the brand of your clothing in your images seems like a no brainer but for so long I didn't know that people even did that,  if brands see you rocking their clothes and receiving positive feedback there could be a potential collaboration on the cards. Although of course that's not the most important thing.

-Hashtag Hashtag Hashtag, they're abused more than anything these days but just recently i've seen how great they are for getting your photos and posts noticed online. As the fashion blogging community uses the #fblogger tag it's easy to communicate with others and get your posts out there. It works, on twitter, instagram, facebook and even tumblr so get going!

-Join blogging communities such as The Blogger ProgrammeBloggers Love, and Etail PR as they are a fantastic way to meet other bloggers, find out about events, and create relationships with brands. I recommend signing up to Bloggers Love now as there's a Bloggers love Fashion Week in September which I'm sure will be amazing! And I hope to see you guys there:)

-Be honest on your blog and be yourself in your thoughts, views and opinions as this is what is going to set you apart from other bloggers! Channel your personality in your posts as it's always nice to see some character in a blog. Make jokes and show your fun side there's no reason why we have to be bad fashionistas 24/7.

-If you feel like you're ready to comit to a collabaration then go ahead and contact a brand head on, contacting ILWF was how I ended up at their bloggers event so you really have nothing to lose. And I'm partial to the odd hundred emails to missguided, I'm not even kidding the day I collabarate with them my life will be complete. All you need to do is type up a quick email with an outline of your blog and then you can just forward it to the contact emails on the websites of the brands, like missguided some have a contact email just for blogger mail.

-Share experiences, advice and reviews don't be afraid to shake things up on the old blog. I love a good change and unpredictable blogs are my favourite! Whilst I love fashion i'll read anything and everything if it's got a purpose, movie and book reviews are my favourite and I'm planning to do one myself soon.

-And most importantly enjoy it! Remember why you did this?  Not for recognition or perks but to share your ideas, so don't ever give up you never know what the future might bring.

A Day In London Town

Trousers-River Island.(See similar at sheinside)                                             Top-H&M                                         Shoes-La Moda
Aside from the crop top this outfit is ridiculously weather inappropriate, so whilst I love it's simplicity it was worn for these photos and then disgarded onto my bedroom floor before my mum had even managed to make a cup of tea. These trousers are an old favourite of mine and still to this today I haven't been able to find trousers this flattering. I have a thing about River Island trousers and since trying theirs I haven't been able to take myself anywhere else for flattering on trend trousers. Whilst they are pretty old international retailer She inside have a pretty good pair on sale that I recommend checking out! So I've made the decision that instead of moping over not yet having an internship that I'm going to be proactive with my time, like today for example I made the short triplouthbank and I thought it would be great content for my blog (thanks liltymelrose!) and I'd give those of you living out of London a little tour. This is probably of the busiest areas in London as there the London Eye, Big Ben and the River Thames all in one place. As well as being surrounded by well known hotels. It's a massive tourist attraction. On a nice day it's wonderful around here because the River brings a cool breeze which I've been needing big time lately! With a Skatepark, Wonderland, Play fountains, and more Food stands and restaurants than you could ever need it's a great destination for all the family! Oooo and I'm so excited to announce that this time next week I will be turning the big 18!!                                                   Happy Tuesday.x

Fancy Dress Mania

Dress-Choies                                      Bag-River Island                                     Wig&Boot Covers-Amazon.                                    So last night saw my cousins 25th birthday party take place, which to my dismay she decided was going to be a fancy dress theme! So after much thought and no luck, I decided to opt for a sixties Gogo girl and be done with it. I love when people are able to make costumes themselves, out of odd bits and bobs and clothes that they already have! So at the party we had a Pirate, Amy winehouse of course, a flamemco dancer, a topless butler and the Birthday girl herself decided to wear this outstanding Grecian getup. It's amazing what you can get from costume shops these days, the night was so lovely and it was great to see so much love in one place! The house was decorated Las Vegas style with dollar bills, a deck or cards cake, and even a roulette wheel!  Nice one woollacotts! With family and close ones all around it certainly made for a memorable night.                          Happy Sunday.x

You Wern't Special Til I Made You So

Denim Jacket-Vintage
Sunglasses-Market Stall
I was so happy when I saw these photos as I was worried that my scabby knee was going to look awful, But is it really a suprise when I insist on wearing inappropriate shoes everyday?!
This outfit was a casual look although I don't know how these die hard black clothing worshippers do it, This heat is causing havoc with my outfit choices and every final choice seems to feel like a mistake! I still adore this H&M summer dress and I'm so glad I decided against the cream version, as I am now a confessed follower of all black clothing.
It's so simple, lightweight, and perfect for ridiculously hot days where even getting dressed seems like an almighty task. I know I'll kick myself when winter begins to descend upon us but this heat is literally killing me, I've never wanted a driving lisence more than now as Public transport is this weather is unimaginably unpleasant, and that's me putting it nicely. This is probably going to sound incredibly "Nerdy" But I felt so cool strutting around TOPSHOP in this outfit, Like uuummh fashion guys I'm one of you. (Yes this was really my mindset!) On this trip I picked up a wicked top from The Ragged Priest which I can't wait to show you guys.
Grunge is definetley my thing right now and I love feeling like I'm dressing more unpredictably. I think I'm in a really good place at the moment with my 18th Birthday fastly approaching, recieving postitve feedback from employers and enjoying my Blog more than ever! I hope my Blog interests at least one of you out there, as It still feels strange blogging and sometimes I forget that It's even out there for people to actually look at. So I'm really enjoying myself at the minute and I hope you guys are too:)

 I'm considering purchasing a camera for better quality images, any recommendations?

Current Favourites

I'm on a roll tonight, My minds racing and I've decided to churn out another post for you guys! My house is so damn hot I'd rather do something productive then go through Tumblr telling myself I have no clothes, or worse spending next weeks budget on more clothes! Anyway I enjoy Blogs that dabble in everything so Today I'm giving you an update to the songs that I'm loving at the minute, my dad's always going on about my awful taste in music so I cannot be held responsible for any ear damage that may occur whilst listening to my little mix. I like mostly Rap and RnB although I'm not opposed to the odd Justin Bieber song!

So here we go:

Mixin it up

Top-Missguded                                  Tube Pants-River Island                   Boots-My1stWish        Glasses&Snapback-Ebay.                  Hello beautiful people, it seems as thought we are blessed with another scorching hot day so that's probably the real reason behind my optimism! And maybe the fact that both of my interviews went fantastic, the interviewers were lovely and the locations were sooo dreamy. I'll hear by the end of the week so stay tuned for an update! My mum and dad are also home from their holiday today which makes me happy:) anyway this is more of a makeshift post, but I loved this outfit so It just had to be documented. I really don't wear enough of my clothes, I completely forgot I even had this adorable vest\dress from Missguided and I look forward to taking on my holiday adventure! Which is getting nearer by the day, that's probably why I'm on my way to Oxford Street now to shop for more things that I don't need! I paired it with my oldschool River Island striped tube pants and my adorable Public Desire boots. Not forgetting my ebay glasses and SnapBack! It's such fun playing around with looks and you really learn to gain an idea of what you like and what suits you,
