Another week down and only one week till Christmas, eek! As much as I'm excited, I'm fighting off an evil cold as we speak and I'm praying that its gone before the festivities begin. Its a week today since my birthday and I had an amazing one, dinner with Scott & amazing cocktails at Bohemia in Brighton, which included Scott's dry ice Old Fashioned, which was amazing to watch the bar was literally up in smoke!
 
The following day the girls & I went to an amazing Mexican and enjoyed a lovely meal all together, which we often don't get to-do, as I'm always away in Scotland!
 
Talking of Scotland, Scott & I's tickets for Hogmanay arrived, which is Scottish new year! I cant wait were going to the street party in Edinburgh with fireworks, drink and friends, its going to be a great send of to 2013!!
 
Hope you've all had a good week!
 
 
 
 

TREND-CHRISTMAS JUMPERS.

 
GINGERBREAD JUMPER- TOPSHOP | CHRISTMAS PUDDING- NEW LOOK |
CHRISTMAS JUMPER- RIVER ISLAND
 
Its the festive time of year and now officially acceptable to crack out the Christmas jumpers! These three above are my pick from the high street, warm, bright and scream Christmas, what else is the Christmas jumper for?
 
The Christmas jumper has recently made a come back, becoming available in every high street store and a must have for every fashionista! The ginger bread one from Topshop above is adorable and that's the key thing to remember Christmas jumpers, there cute, novelty and not to serious! So have fun picking your festive jumper this year and remember the more garish the better!
 
Ho, ho, ho!

Afternoon readers! Today is my 22nd birthday, can you believe it! A haul is to come filled with birthday goodies and ill give you a look at all my birthday outfits too. I've just got back from an amazing lunch with my friend Yas and I'm off out to dinner with Scott tonight.. well what are birthdays for?!
 
 So this week I flew home for Christmas, its been a long semester and I was definitely ready for home. Handing in all my work on Monday felt amazing and as seen in the previous post, my final styling images I'm really proud of!
 
I also want to share a website I write for every fortnight, My student style is a great platform for students with no writing experience who want to expand on their C.V. The team is super lovely and the articles are a great read, you can find me under My Student Style- Fashion. Check It out below!
 
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have been off my game with all the pending deadlines, so watch this space!!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


FINAL STYLING IMAGES.



 
So its been a interesting semester, if you've been following my blog then you know I've been doing a styling project at university and here are my final 3 images. The project was influenced by news stories and art. I looked at Lucian Freud and the 3 new stories are as follows- Isabella Blow exhibition, the protests in Albania regarding Libyan chemical weapons being destroyed in Albania and "Bronies" a type of male which finds hidden meaning in the program my little ponies.
 
I feel my final images are contemporary and I'm very happy with the final outcome! what do you think?
 
'til next time

RECOGNIZE.

Afternoon guys! I had previously mentioned I have been working with my whole class to create Recognize, a fashion event in Edinburgh which was held yesterday at Summer Hall. It was a great night all in aid of the charity, SAMH- Scottish association of mental health. We raised a great deal of money and awareness for a great charity as well as putting on a great fashion event! So yay, go us!
 
There are photos of the night to come but as you may remember I was in Glasgow a couple of weeks ago filming a promotion film and this is what I want to share with you. Jade and I, a fellow student and friend filmed and edited the final piece, so I hope you enjoy & leave comments below.


 
 

MY WEEK #17

 
MINI BURGER  AUBURN HAIR | LIGHTS ON, CHRISTMAS IS HERE | ROSE | WINTERWONDERLAND IN EDINBURGH | HUNGER GAMES | HMMMM.. | SCOTT ENJOYING HIS CARAMEL GALA-CINO | RECOGNIZE FASHION EVENT.
 
Another weekend closer to Christmas and I'm especially feeling festive this week, Scott was here this weekend and as always our fun filled weekend was full of.. well fun! Edinburgh winter wonderland was amazing, with ice-skating, stalls, rides and just that Christmassy smell, Scott & I got right into the Christmas mood!
 
It was another weekend of indulgence, we went to Turnball's a lovely cafĂ©/brassiere in Gala and I ordered the mini Turnball burger which was delicious & soooo cute! After our lunch we decided to go for a cheeky waffle, bottom left. Drool worthy.
 
Yesterday was also the Recognize fashion event that me and my classmates have been working on all semester! It was a great night, with music, fashion and interviews with bloggers and the industry it was really a worth while fashion event and I'm very proud we all pulled it off! Photos of the night are to be uploaded :)
 
 Also this week I changed my hair colour which you might have seen if you follow me on instagram? @islay101. Ive been wanting a different look for a while now and an auburn/ginger has always been appealing & last week I just got over my irrational fear and went for it & I gotta say, I love it!
 
So it back to work now, trying to finish all my university projects before I jet home on Monday! EEK, wish me luck!
