colour it

big and bold colours are definitely the "big thing" this season, and Jil Sander sure knows how to mix and match eye popping colours together and still create perfection! Jil Sanders s/s 11 collection is actually amazing,it is filled with gorgeous bold coloured clothing and beautiful bright lips!
I know this post is very delayed, because colour blocking hit the top of the trends a little bit of a while ago, but hey, it is better late then never! I have to tell you, to be honest I really didn't like this style at first, i thought that putting a number of bold colours together would look odd, stupid, and you would altogether look like a lolly pop on the street. 
Although, for some reason something has changed my mind. It probably was seeing so many beautiful street style photos of people wearing bright coloured clothing; every piece of clothing was worn so well and looked great! I think i need to invest in some bright coloured lipstick, a bold coloured maxi skirt, oh and of course a gorgeous coloured clutch (preferably just like the one in the third photo from the top, except all one colour). 
okay, since this post was already filled with bright, bold and colour blocking colours, i though i should add in a few things arty just to make this post really pop! The first photo of some art is so awesome but i am actually not too sure of what it is. To me, it looks like all the crayons are melting. The texture of the melted crayons would be quite smooth because a crayon is smooth, but it is actually coming off the page which really gives it a great effect! I actually love it so much, i must find out who the artist is. The last photo is not  as exiting but is till like it, because it is simple and the colours are quite bright (they do stand out from the white paper). I also can tell this piece is in watercolour, which reminds me that i need to learn how to watercolour paint. I really love the look of water colours, especially when it has dripped and is not perfect!

a quick one - part two

the photos above are all the best vertical photos

my favourite shot would probably have to be the 10th shot from the top, for some reason i really love it and it really stands out because of the white background. Amy is wearing a Vintage oversized jumper and American Aparrel corduroy skirt. as i said in the last post, i love the softness of each photo when no flash is in use. i also really like how in most of the photos the background is blurred but amy stands out and almost looks sharpened.
Which one is your favourite?

a quick one - part one

The photos above are the all the best horizontal photos that i shot of amy.

and this is how it went..
the first minute she came over, we ran upstairs and I gave her a bunch of clothes to put it on. When she had everything on we ran outside and i started taking as many photos of her as i could, even if she wasn't ready. it was crazy (we only had about 30-45mins), but it was worth it and the photos turned out pretty good for a short amount of time
I played around with the flash and then without the flash, and i have to say i much prefer not using the flash at all because it gives a soft look that i really like. There were more horizontal photos but they were personally not my favourite (if you would like me to post them, then i sure can). All the best vertical photos will be up soon. Also, sorry for the delay of putting up these photos. enjoy :)

rose gold

(all images via

Today I was going through ASOS, they have such great clothing and shoes but their accessories are exceptional. I love all  their rings and bracelets but what really stood out was this rose gold cuff. I love how big and bold it is but I also love the colour. This rose gold colour really gave this giant cuff a feminine and lovely look to it. So I had a closer look at this cuff and realized that one of my favourite fashion bloggers has this exact piece of jewellery; Love Aesthetics (if you have not already seen this blog, you must check it out right now because it is amazing!). I then (once again) stalked her blog. I had a close look at all the outfits where she wore this beautiful cuff. Seeing this amazing cuff on an amazing girl made me want it even more; so I thought about it and I am still thinking about but I am pretty sure that I will get it. The bonus is that this cuff may look expensive but it's not! it is only $25 which is actually really good, since Sportsgirl charges the same amount for a small ring!

i have a stick on chalk board in my kitchen just like the above
today in science i had a little bit of a stalk through The Selby, it is actually the most amazing sight for room and art inspiration. this sight takes you through the homes of the most creative people. my favourite images are the photos of their own artwork, their shelves which are usually covered by books, magazines and beautiful ornaments and also having a good look at their mood board (inspirational photos, ideas, quotes etc.). I think it is time to actually redecorate my bedroom, and when i do i will be creating a mood board of my own. My room will become my own inspiration filled with amazing photos, beautiful words, and of course me (and who i am). anyways it is finally August; and only now it feels like the final half of the year has begun. so this means new beginnings for me, which will include achieving higher grades in school, actually doing my homework, meeting new people, focusing more on my art, redecorating my room, seeing more friends, going outside more, using the computer less, talking more with my mum, trying to enjoy every minute of the day, and this list goes on... I hope you all a lovely august!
