Sunglasses - eBay
Red Velvet Top -Thrifted
Jeans - Zara
Necklace - eBay
Bracelet - Accessorize
Cut Out Boots - New Look

 
Sun was out today so I ran outside and took a few outfit pictures whilst the garden looked inviting. Haven't worn jeans in an age, after being in shorts for over 2 months, so it felt v strange. It was the first day that I wore my new boots, so pleased with them! They've got a small heel but are still really comfortable; ideal for walking around uni in September.

p.s. I got in to BEXETER UNI!!!!!! cue celebration :):):):)

Henna Experiments

Whilst on a Christian week away this summer someone henna-ed my foot. I've never really thought about doing henna, just because it's not seen very much in the UK (bar the odd festival). However, after having some done I was inspired to try and do it myself! Henna can be so beautiful when done properly and intricately, my aim being to become a henna goddess (and then everyone at uni will pay me thousands to do them some bod art etc...). The great thing about henna is that it's semi - permanent; lasting around 2-3 weeks depending on your skin type.

I bought 6 henna cones from eBay for only around £4.50 which is a really good deal. A tube can do up to 10 small designs, or 2/3 very detailed designs.



 
 
My first attempt was on my hand. It wasn't the best I have to be honest - for example I cut the henna cone too far up so the line was too thick, making detail impossible.
Here is a picture of me modelling, in an interesting fashion, the hand design ....
 

 
 
The design below was the inspiration for my next attempt. I pretty much copied the design up to the ankle, and then just added a few finishing touches as I didn't particularly want the art going all the way up my leg. 
 
 
 
 After a very very very long time of sitting in one position/doing vigorous leg exercises to regain feeling in my limb (dedication) here is the final result:




 
The thing is, I can't do too much art on myself otherwise it will start to look a bit obsessive. Will start sketching up a few new designs for when these fade!

A Day In Southampton & New Shoes!







Have had a lovely day in Southampton with the fam! My sister Rhi (hola if you're reading) is in the process of moving into a student house which is super nice - and came with a free space hopper left in the living room (amazing). Took a few photos here and there - along with an outfit of the day which will be live any minute! We went to eat at a restaurant called 'Wild Lime' which, I'm sad to say, has overtaken Wagamama to be my new fav restaurant. And I really love Wagamama. It was ridiculously divine, and they even make cocktails in jamjars?! Fingers are tightly crossed that they build one in Exeter so I can work there once I start uni in September (grades permitting) and just bask in its deliciousness. I also had a cheeky shop, managing to find a pair of 'Monkee Genes' which retail at like £70 for £2.50 in a charity shop. Brilliant. And I picked up these buckled cut out boots from New Look simply because they will go with everything and will definitely be a uni staple. All in all, a very good day.
