THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE



...My favourite issue of the year! On Saturday morning I received my September copy of Elle through the post and was immediately drawn in by the stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who looks flawless on the front cover! The styling is also exquisite, it truly encapsulates what autumn is set to bring us; dark, feminine glamor!


























One of my favourite things about Elle magazine is that it reminds me why I love fashion. Some days I'll be feeling a little down and wander why the hell I'm bothering to pursue this career - the fashion industry is sickeningly competitive and I'm not even sure if I'm "good enough" because I'm not massively outgoing and I don't have shit loads of money to splash on the latest trends. BUT, when I pick up a copy of Elle and flick through it's sweet perfume smelling glossy pages, I'm sure that this is what I want to do.

ZARA: NEW COLLECTION




























Oh Zara, you never fail to amaze me with your beautiful A/W collections! I popped into Zara for the first time in months, (I try to avoid it when I'm feeling poor), and as expected, I wanted most of the pieces they had to offer! Below are a few of my favourite pieces from the new collection - I love how they've managed to make studs look sophisticated! If you haven't already then click HERE to see the new collection and let me know what you think!

LONDON 2012


On Friday evening my housemates and I cooked a delicious meal of Mexican food and sat down to watch the Olympic opening ceremony; I wasn't blown away by the performance, but there were some surprises and it was indeed very "British"! I thought it was hilarious when "Mr Bean" popped up on screen, and I'm so glad that they went through the ages of music and added some film classics in there to, because us Brits do have a fabulous history of film, television and music! The fireworks were pretty to of course....what were your thoughts and favourite bits?

After the first part of the ceremony we headed over to Camden and after much "um-ing and ah-ing" about where to go, we ended up in Barfly which was small and dingy, how clubs should be, and they played a great selection of tunes from the 1960's right through until the present day.

I wore my new shoes, which I'd bought from H&M earlier that day; I actually saw them a few months ago in Devon but they didn't have my size left, so I had to get them when I found them in my size in the Brent Cross store! They're so comfortable to walk in and I really like the bright yellow sole detail. I wore them with my favourite dress from Topshop which I rolled the sleeves up on because it was so warm, even when the sun went down! I'm aware how see-through the dress it by the way ;) Don't worry, I put cycling shorts on underneath before I went out! 



  





I'm sure you've already noticed, but I've changed the layout of my blog, yet again! I decided to scrap the "read more" thing and I've added a panel to the left, I hope you like it.
