DIY fashion!

DIY fashion has been a popular trend for years, with Vogue usually being at the forefront using recycled fashion garments in their editorial spreads. With the use of anything ranging from carrier bags to cans, the fashion world seems to be over run with the environmental change. Now I started uni this week studying Fashion promotion and our first brief is to work alongside the Fashion Design students to produce our own garments using recycled materials and then stage these in our own fashion show. However when you live in Cardiff where the streets are cleaned everyday its hard to pick up any recyclable rubbish on the pavements! Looking through various different magazines however has sparked up some ideas.

Now its our turn!
Everybody is looking for photographers etc to attend the Fashion show happening in the Atrium on Friday! So if anybody is interested get in touch! xoxo

Lifestyle on a budget!

As it's been about 6 months since I left Manchester and therefore 6 months of me working and actually having money (for a change) I have enjoyed being able to pop into Topshop and pick up a skirt I see or a pair of jeans I like and not worry about it. HOWEVER in June, when I had to start paying rent for my flat in Cardiff my bank balance went into shock.....empty shock. So now it's only 1 and a half days until me and my best friend move to Cardiff and I am stocking up on my budget beauty buys and clothes.
I have well and truly conquered the lifestyle on a budget! (Granted a little help came from my dads wallet)
So clothes wise: I bought my self some of H&M basic t-shirts However I hate how they model these t-shirts because who nowadays wears a tight fitting basic t-shirt? So I buy mine a size too big and wear it tucked into my skinnies with a scarf. They come in really nice colours and I've invested in a burnt red and mustard colour. £7.99
Same with jeans. I am a fan of the …
