starting 2014

The other day my friend Amber and I went to Brick Lane to photograph for a Street Style on our new blog Cryptic Arabella. Go over to Cryptic Arabella to check out all the pictures we took. Here are a couple of my favourites -








Not included in the street style, Amber and I did photograph our owns outfits -

y so serius?



Beanie - WCD
Polo neck - Mero Retro (post coming on this fabulous place)
Coat - Mero Retro
Jeans - Levi
Shoes - Dr Martens
Rings - my grandma or a market in Marrakech (sorry)


Jumper - Motel Rocks
Skirt - Rokit
Bag - Rokit
Shoes - Vagabond




Since coming home from Marrakech, where I spent Christmas (post coming soon), I have not really been doing much. And I have to say it really has been lovely. I am dreading school, so not doing anything too strenuous has been perfect. I did however go to watch my brother play tennis in a tournament as well as trying some herbal teas; two very unrelated matters. 




I love a good hot drink. However, I am slightly allergic to caffeine, so permitting I like any of them, herbal tea would be a perfect alternative. (I don't like drinking things that have had caffeine extracted from them as you do not know what chemicals they used to do that.) The only herbal tea I have tried to far is the M&S Cranberry and Elderflower infusion. The smell was extremely strong and fruity but the taste was not as strong. It was ok and I would drink it again but I think it's going to take some getting use to. 




I also went round to my Grandma's house for tea and went through all of her old jewellery. I found some beautiful pieces that she said I could have, I will photograph them at a later date (a couple of them are at the jewellers).


Some disposables I got developed recently -



          








Penultimately, yes I am aware this is a long post, within the last week I went to the cinema to see Anchorman 2 and All Is Lost. I really enjoyed both. Anchorman was of course hysterical, although like most sequels it was not quite as good as the first (High school Musical being an exception to this rule of course). I laughed out loud, which I never do, as did most of the people in the cinema. Brick is my spirit animal. All Is Lost was very interesting to see. Beautifully shot with a lovely use of light; I am definitely going to look in more deeply at how they shot everything. I was very impressed with Robert Redford, I thought he was very good. If you are perceptible to phobias or fears I would not suggest it as the sea does now slightly freak me out.





Finally, Polyvore. I have been slightly stressed this year, the whole five days, due to the amount of work I haven't touched, and strangely enough I have discovered that Polyvore slightly calms me. Bizarre I know, so I'm not going to touch upon the subject any further.

If you read to the end snaps for you. Happy New Year!
