F A S H I O N - / / F E S T I V A L F A S H I O N I N S P I R A T I O N ! !

This week has been so busy with work I've wanted to scream, but... and a big BUT, I received an email from the lovely Molly @ Get Involved. I've been accepted as press for Common People in Southampton! (EEEEKKKKK!)



Sadly, I can only make it to the Sunday due to work commitments, But that's perfectly fine with me, because my main men Duran Duran are the headliners, I think I might die!!!!
The event as a whole has worked out perfect for me, I'll be going with my bestie William, who is happy to drive down, but best of all, I asked a friend of mine (Who studies Fashion in Southampton University) if she was going and it turns out she isn't (That's not the best bit. I really wish she was!) BUT BUT BUT! She's letting me and William stay at her flat for the evening, which saves us around £90 hotel fees ! (Loves ya Jaz <3)

With just 2 weeks to go I need to decide what I need to take for the job at hand. My idea is to capture the festival fashion trends, asking members of the public what they're wearing and why they chose that outfit along with some information about themselves! It's going to be super fun!

This then got me thinking, What on earth am I going to wear?!
I'm naturally cold at all times, so do I need a jumper/shirt? But it's sunny, and I'd like some colour on my skin so should I wear shorts? The struggle is unreal! So I decided to make some little outfit mood boards to inspire me !

Outfit 1 :
Superdry Dungarees
H&M Plain stripe vest (tied)
Vans trainers

Look 2.
New Look ripped jeans.
H&M Black Kimono
Hollister white cami
New look white sandals.

Outfit 3!
Primark shirt (Open and tied)
Levi denim shorts
Black hair bow
Holographic sandals.



Which outfit would you choose? 

Is there any advice you'd give on outfits for a festival seeing this is my first one?

T R A V E L - / / C R O A T I A !

I was lucky enough to head off to Croatia as an early birthday present last week!
Our original idea was to head to Amsterdam... But I'm not overly fussed on the idea, so when Michael found this bargain I was over the moon!

We stayed at the beautiful 5* Hotel Croatia Cavtat, situated right by beach in Cavtat.
Our package included flights from London Stansted to Dubrovnik Airport, a 3 night stay and breakfast buffets every morning!

I didn't know Easyjet offered package holidays, but I would totally book with them again, everything was easy sailing, and for £150 each we couldn't ask for anything more!



Our room was on the 7th floor, with a forest facing window, which may not have been as pretty as the sea view rooms, but it was so quiet and peaceful! A nice double bed with en-suit bathroom (bath and shower, just right for both of us!)



All the staff were fantastic, the spoken English was perfect, and our room was ready two hours for two sleepy guests (after travelling for 13 hours!) The hotel had a number of restaurants to use. A steak house, buffet, piano bar, poolside bar and so much more! It also offered complete usage of the gym and spa activities, Michael loved the sauna and wet room. I'm too sensitive for both of them, but the indoor heated sea salt pool and outdoor sea salt pool worked wonders on my dry skin!


DAY ONE!

P H O T O G R A P H Y - / / C A K E S M A S H - N I C H O L A S

I love birthdays and babies, so a First birthday for a gorgeous baby made me extremely happy!

This cheeky little munchkin was a pleasure to photograph. Believe it or not, he loved the shoot, but he just couldn't tell his face that! Nicholas helped me to build some images for my portfolio. This is my second cake smash, so I offered two free sessons to help gain an audidence.

I know little Nicholas's uncle, who offered his services as a model to me! Easy picking when you know people with beautiful kids!

After just turning 1, his mum was delighted for Nicholas to be choosen for some free images.

(I also made the nappy cover and bowtie! I'll create a tutorial soon on how I did it :D)

Here's a few from the photo session :)
