A few weekends ago I went to visit the beautiful city of Gothenburg for Way Out West. Just like last year, it didn't rain it poured, but that still didn't dampen our spirits due to the picturesque surroundings, good music and friendly people. It really is one of my favourite places on earth.
Our first afternoon at the festival was pretty relaxed; tired from the early morning and traveling we wondered around the site watching random artists, eating churros and drinking cider... I soon perked up when it was time for Morrissey's headline act though! I did actually see him a few years ago at Glastonbury festival, which was an amazing experience, but this time felt a lot more intimate as we managed to get pretty close and he was in a great mood! (Likely something to do with WOW being an entirely meat free event). We also saw Massive Attack, The Libertines, PJ Harvey and Jamie XX to name a few.
I did get lots of other lovely photographs outside of the festival but I'll post these at a later date cause there are A LOT! Hope you're all enjoying your long weekend!

This year summer has whizzed by in a blur. I've had a really difficult few months with relationships and family, and on top of that been extremely busy with work, which I've been using as a distraction. I'm trying to slow down a little and get back on track with something called "my life", and I've realised just how much I've been missing out on recently... no sunny days in the park, no BBQs with friends and not nearly enough time spent with family.
I'd like to learn how to live life more in the moment as I currently spend far too much time worrying about the past or future. Over the next few months I'm going to work hard at enjoying what's happening in my life right now, focussing on the present rather than letting time pass me by. How we spend our time and who we spend it with shouldn't be taken for granted and this is something I'm definitely guilty of in the past. But I'm not supposed to be dwelling on the past anymore... as a nice contrast to this rather gloomy post here I am dancing around in the sun on one of the beautiful days I did manage to get out in!

Until recently I thought Blink 182 t-shirts were a thing of my past... in fact my first ever band hoodie, which I got when I was eleven-years-old, was a 'Take of your Pants and Jacket' design. But as I find dressing for work quite tricky/I'm super lazy when it comes to outfitting myself, a simple tee thrown on with jeans in the morning is actually a dream. I've started buying men's t-shirts from H&M, as they're super cheap and they have a great selection of colours - but Amazon have loads of band tees I've also been buying into. The one I'm wearing here was only £9.99 and I bought a new Smiths one too :)

Hey, it's been a while! A lot has changed in the last few months; I want to update you all but I'm just waiting for the right time to sit down and write a proper post... for now, just to ease myself slowly back into blogging, here's a quick outfit post featuring my lovely new Wood Wood t-shirt from Pho. London! I've always been a bit funny about wearing lighter colours, definitely preferring black, navy, forest green, charcoal... you know the drill... but in summer when I get a slight tan, (slight being a key word there), it's actually quite nice to emphasise my "sun-kissed" skin more against a white, cream or light grey.
Today Matt and I are going to shoot some still life, I used to really enjoy setting myself fun still life projects at weekends, remember The Biscuit Project? So much fun and I still love those images... I haven't been doing enough personal work recently as I've been pretty busy with "real work", trying to get by and pay rent you know. But I miss creating something just for the hell of it so my goal over summer is to get back into the creative mindset and just DO MORE!! Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend, oh, and please say hey in comments below so I can check out your blogs... I'm kinda out of the loop!

As soon as the days started to get longer I jumped at the chance to pull all of my shorts, skirts, culottes, dresses, dungarees and playsuits to the front of my wardrobe. I was let out of the studio/my flat for what felt like the first time this year the other day and was so excited by the expanse of blue sky that Matt literally had to tell me to calm down.
This cute little number is from Joy, by the brand Minkpink, a great Australian brand which I've been a fan of for quite a few years now. I'm wearing it here with my new Dr Martens - I thought I'd mix it up a bit and get a navy pair!
I'm actually in Devon this weekend for my best Friend's wedding - I'm a bridesmaid and I'm absolutely dreading trying to put makeup on my horrible spotty face tomorrow. Why does this always happen!? Every time I have a reason to want to look nice I'll get an outbreak of spots or dry skin on my face or eczema all over my arms!! I'm so sick of being twenty-something and still sporting teenage skin. On a plus note tomorrow isn't about me... it's about Ria, and luckily she has a beautiful, flawless face :) I'll try to get lots of snaps to share with you from the day!
