GET READY WITH ME • FOR COLLEGE


Hey! So after a year and half  I have finally filmed my "Get ready with me for college" video! (By college I meant high school since I'm from the UK) I usually take around 45 minutes to get ready from getting out of bed to walking out the door, hope you'll enjoy watching it!

P.S. All the products used are in the video's description box :)

Love,

DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY

 shirt from oasap // cardigan from salvation army // shorts are diy // shoes from yeswalker
I went to my local university applicant's visit day and afterward I had a little walk around the area by myself, quite relaxing and nice as I found a peaceful little corner to take pictures. However I didn't have a tripod or any human tripod with me so I used my flask and two books to prop the camera up, it looked pretty strange I should have taken a photo of it. Despite having lived in this city for so long, I actually haven't had the chance to explore it fully, so this summer, the number 1 thing on my bucket list is to GO OUT TO PLACES!!

I really like this polka dot shirt, this is such a classic pattern and can be worn for different occasions! I can't wait to create a British inspired lookbook for you guys which this shirt will be featured along with some other items!

And now, I shall return to my huge to-do list and try to fulfil it asap, got letters to write and people to see!

FIFI LAPIN x ICONEMESIS

shirt, scarf and skirt from jessica buurman // jumper from sheinside // shoes from persunmall

So this is going to be a looong blog post, you know how sometimes you just have the sudden urge to write everything down? Well, I'm feeling it right now, and it's very rare so let's jump right into this! Quite a lot has been going on lately and I'm pretty sure a lot of you can relate: preparations for exams, coursework, everything students go through. 

However... I managed to steal some time to watch Pretty Little Liars whilst doing my textiles coursework... and I kind of regret it because I am addicted to it. I didn't really expect it to be amazeballs but the storyline is so intriguing... not to mention that the English teacher Ezra Fitz (played by Ian Harding) is the definitely of eye candy, just his smile is enough to melt everyone's heart.

Anyway, enough about Pretty Little Liars, I'm only midway through season 1 and I'm talking about it non stop! (Do not spoil it for me, I'm warning ya!) So, let's move onto the outfit here. I'm wearing this polyester shirt with a peculiar cut-out collar that's in pleather material, it just adds that umph to a classic white shirt, I think I would get so much wear out of it because it's a wardrobe staple that goes with anything. I layered on a mint green jumper which is relatively thin to give a nice shade of pastel colour to the outfit, I'm also wearing a simple woollen black skirt, that is actually my first ever plain black skirt! To finish it off I have on a pair of ankle boots with a cut-out heel that surprises everyone when they see it!



I thought I'd feature this phone case here because the shades Fitz (Pretty Little Liars reference, oh gosh I need to stop) so well with my outfit! The pastel colour is one of my favourite colour scheme and it reminds me of spring, which I am really looking forward to!

If you don't know already, this design is the world's most stylish bunny Fifi Lapin. This cute little creature captures everyone's heart, and this oddly adorable design of her in a tea cup and saucer outfit had me in awe! It fits my iPhone 4 snugly so I don't have to worry about my phone back being scratched. The phone case isn't bulky at all so it still feels normal when you hold it in your hand.

I got this phone case from Iconemesis and they have a range of iPhone 4-5S cases designed by artists such as Gemma Correll and Cat Sims. So make sure to check them out!
