Good morning


I've finally finished my degree, which means I have a lot of spare time on my hands. Good for the blog, as I actually have time to post now. Very exciting don't cha think?
This morning consisted of me being excited that I was able to start posting more. I spent most of the morning in bed, planning my blog posts, and also looking at various places in america for my upcoming USA road trip. Any suggestions?

Fashion Design Sketchbook


Hello! The reason I haven't been that active on my blog for a few months now is because I'm in my 4th year at University, and it has actually taken over my life. Every spare moment I have is spent doing university work. I'm studying Fashion Design at UCLan, and I've decided to use my blog to showcase my work a little bit.



A few weeks ago I went to Amsterdam for 2 days with my boyfriend. I had never been before, and I was really looking forward to it, but didn't know what to expect. We stayed in the Grand Hotel Downtown, which was lovely, and in such a cute area! We managed to fit in loads of things, and even if you have only one day, it is plenty of time to do and see a lot of things - as long as you don't mind being a busy bee! (and wear comfy shoes!)



This is the beautiful view from the apartment I was staying in the other day. I could have looked at it forever. You could see all of London. The Eye, The Shard, St. Pauls… Of course I had to get an outfit photo out on the balcony. A super-casual outfit, as I was going home that day.
Before I went home, I went and had lunch with some other bloggers - two were from L.A, and they’d never had a Full English before, so of course we had to go and take them to have one. We went to The Breakfast Club, and it was so amazing! The decor was just so cute, and the food was soooooo good!!! I’m almost drooling just thinking about it now. The two Americans loved it of course (all apart from the black pudding, but that is understandable.)

The other day I walked along embankment, looking at all the street performers/getting annoyed with the amount of people getting in my way, and we stopped to take some photos opposite Big Ben. The jeans are from a vintage shop in San Fransisco, and the top if from American Apparel. I love this look because depending on what shoes you wear, it can be super casual - like how I wore this with converse, or quite dressy, if you wear with heels. Both look great!
The top has an open back, so I made sure I wore a nice bra - I bought mine from Urban Outfitters.

So I came back from America, and a few days later I was on a train down to London, with a friend to chill out for a few days before working at London Fashion Week for two days. We've been roller blading (which is my new found love after roller blading down Venice Beach in Los Angeles), wandered around hackney, and went to a rooftop cinema to watch 'Empire Records', which was really cool, you got blankets and everything, but I was still really chilly. Maybe I shouldn't have worn a skirt. This was my outfit yesterday, which made me feel like a big kid.

A few days ago I went to the San Francisco Zoo. I love going to zoo's and seeing all the animals up close, but sometimes it makes me so sad if I see an animal looking miserable in its little pen. The majority of these animals looked pretty happy though! :) I got to feed a goat as well, so that was my day made.

After the zoo, I walked along the coast line, it was really pretty, reminded me a little of some beaches in England.
