General Update

Can you believe it's been over a month since I last posted on here? :/ my bad. Although, I don't have many readers so hopefully no one noticed haha. Thats a bad attitude to have, I know! I have been inspired by one of my favourite bloggers/YT guru's, Dulce Candy, as she has set herself the challenge of posting a blog post everyday for the whole month of March. Now, I'm not going to do that as it's way too much of an unrealistic goal for me, but I am going to try to post at least once a week on here. 
I've recently been having lots of career lectures at uni and frankly, it's scared the shit out of me! It's shocking to think I've nearly completed the first year and then it's only another 2 years till I graduate! :o While it's scary, it's also really exciting to think about the future and where I'll be in 5 years time, what company I'll be working for, what job I'll be doing etc.
Anyways, just thought I'd share my current obssession, ( and it isn't fashion related! so I don't know if it really belongs on here but oh well, my blog, my rules)

I have not stopped eating fruit mixed with natural yoghurt, organic honey and topped off with raisins and nuts. Healthy or what? It's really important to eat fresh fruit as I believe it helps you staying free from illness, and it's super tasty too! 
Another one of my current obsession are face masks. I purchased this one from H&M (of all places!) and it smelt exactly like vanilla fudge, mmmm. It was a self-warming one too, so it felt lovely on my face and left me with super soft skin after. I suggest doing these when you've got friends round on a quiet Saturday night, it's cheaper than going out to the clubs, healthier and face masks are a reet old giggle with old friends! :)

Current favourite fashion designer: Betsey Johnson
I first heard of Betsey Johnson when she was on an ANTM episode back in the day but I know she's been established for ages. Her collections are always my favourites as they're so fun and light-hearted. I think people tend to forget fashion is all about that and take it way too serious. Her models always look like they're having such a fun time on the runway too! Here are a couple of my favourite looks from A/W11 collection:

I think she's seriously overlooked in British fashion magazines, what a ledge.
Till next time, stay happy and healthy,
Much Love

Current Obsessions

This is just a video from my YT channel, (AmyJean92 - please sub, it'd mean a lot) talking about my current beauty obsessions:

Oops. On the video  I forgot to mention this gorgeous shower gel from Lush called, "It's Raining Men" which is basically a shower gel formula of the "Honey I Washed The Kids" soap which is my favourite soap in the whole wide world. It smells divine, mostly of honey (obvs). I could sit and smell it all day long. There is also a real nice natural feel about Lush products in general, i feel like i'm really pampering my skin when i use them. The only downside to the brand is that it is quite expensive so I only purchase items rarely when I feel I deserve a treat or two.

 This 500g bottle was approx. £14.99    -.-    which is way overpriced for shower gel but it smells too good not to buy, i highly recommend you buy it!

Thanks for reading this post, I'll try and be more frequent with the posts but I'm only going to post something if it's worth posting!

P.S. Do you guys like my nails? i painted them myself.. yes, i have way too much free time!

First Uni Project: White Architecture

So I know it's been like forever since I've posted on here and the truth is; whilst I have been super busy, I've also had no motivation and no inspiration to post anything because I've been so preoccupied. And I'd rather not post at all than post crap.
I've recently finished my first major uni assignment, and let me tell you, I think I partied a little too hard during my first term because I was kinda disorganised towards of the end of the project and I got to the point where I was so sick of the project that I didnt really care what grades I got as long as I passed. So I'm super happy that this initial project is out of the way because I learnt so much from what is expected of me as a uni student. I absolutely love my course (which is fashion design in case you were wondering) but it is bloody hard work so if you're a prospective uni student and thinking of applying for fashion design, don't think it's all glamour and nice clothes. I know countless designers and big-wigs in the fashion industry have already said this but you have to work your bollocks off to get anywhere, you have to really put the time in and put yourself out there which is terrifying. But it is so worth it once you've produced something you're proud of.
I feel super lucky to have even got on the course in the first place so I'm determined to stay focused on what I want to get out of it. I think any one of you could apply this to your studies no matter what your degree is.

Anyway enough chattering, here's some pictures of my final dress which was inspired by architecture:

Feel free to leave a comment telling me your honest opinion

Hope everyone is happy & healthy
