Delevingne For A Day




 Delevingne top: Dead Legacy
Leather leggings: Leggsington
 Dr Marten boots

Yaah I am wearing all black everythaaaang eg, my model casting look. I literally just fell into modelling when i started this blog. I got my first shoot just over 2 years ago today with Mint Vintage for ASOS Marketplace and back then I definitely did not think of myself as ever being called a model. I was so excited and overwhelmed when I first saw myself on the actual ASOS homepage. Back then i was still so shy and nervous I even took my best friend along to the shoot with me for support.

Since then i have been so lucky to be asked to work with so many great brands. I love working with independent brands, getting to know the people behind them and because i'm often a fan of the brand already, i literally spend the entire shoot just fan girling over the clothes. A highlight of mine was definitely modelling for Ark Clothing last summer when I was still Up North. Ark was such a big store up north for my friends and I so it was very weird for me to be the face of their SS14 collection and then having my friends buying the clothes i was modelling - utterly surreal!

I don't take modelling too seriously, luckily for me it was never a ambition of mine when i was younger like many girls. Saying that, I now absolutely LOVE modelling! Although it has a big misconception of being easy, which is completely wrong and its often very long hours and a lot of physical and mental work (so i have a lot of respect for the super model babes such as Cara Delevingne). I love shoots because i get to meet new inspirational people, have a laugh, try on new clothes and get to be part of creating something as a team for me that's the best thing.

Boohoo FIT x The Young Eccentric (1/2)
















Leggings: Boohoo* 
Bralet: Missguided (similar)
Trainers: Nike 

Sports. Immediately thinks of P.E at school. Immediately thinks of cold changing room, uncomfortable shorts and the fact that no matter how hard i tried i was never going to be picked for the A or B teams.  

It's fair to say at school I hated sports. Unless it was the summer and we got the play rounders or raining so we could play dodge ball, I hated it. Yes i had my moments of false hope that maybe i could do a sport. I was on the fencing team in junior school and tried (i mean really tried) at gymnastics. My lack of gym talent was proven when i did a forwards roll and managed to sprain the biggest muscle in my neck the day before my birthday meaning i had to be in a neck brace! Yes this was my type of luck when it came to sports. 

However, since going to uni I found myself missing those 2 hours of hell i spent exercising at school, so i took it upon myself to start to work out and get fit. 

It's been very gradual, in the first year of uni I started with a fitness DVD (LOL), I then braved the outside and started a running route by my house. And now 3 years on I am a gym member and have been for 3 months! However I was still wearing the hand-me-downs my mum's friend gave me and my mum's trainers that were two sizes too big. 

Now thanks to Boohoo FIT however, I am all set! I even got wolf whistled as i came out the gym yesterday, think it must have been because of these leggings :)

Windows ERROR







Tish Jarrett Photography
 Emoji Top: O Mighty (may also find on Shop Jeen)
Microsoft bottoms: O mighty
Trainers: Nike

 Shot this look with Tish back in February and it was f f f f freezing! We went to our secret location in London only to find that half of it had been torn down! However a little bit survived so we were very happy chappy's! I'm so excited for the sun to come out soon - I love spring!

I promise you I wont post another look with these O- Mighty trousers for a while, soz for the spam - they just never get old! I have found Pikachu on them and a 'okay' button on my bottom.

Who remembers when Microsoft Windows ran the world? All the tabs you had to get up to even find one of the crap games, MSN, the paper clip animation that was never actually helpful. I still remember our first computer that you couldn't even use, all it showed was HTML code but I still liked to press the keys ha.

I've got a crush on you






 Bralet: Missguided (Similar)
Necklace: Accessories (Similar)
 Velvet Leggings: Leggsington*

I am totally crushing on these burgundy leggings from Leggingston. I am such a sucker for a comfy pair of leggings! There is nothing I love more than wearing a good pair of joggers and who said being comfy couldn't also be stylish?

Too Young To Give A Fuck







Too Young To Give A Fuck tee: Dead Legacy*

This Dead Legacy tee combines my two loves, oversized and funny slogans.

I do give a fuck, I give a fuck about important things: ambition, happiness, being nice, caring about others, health, personal growth, being grateful for what I have. However, as i have grown up i have discovered i am very lucky because I do not give a fuck about my how people perceive my appearance (ironic i know as i run a fashion blog and am a model but hear me out).

I don't wear make- up unless its a special occasion, i'm going out or doing a photoshoot. As many make-up artists will tell you i am AWFUL at having my make- up done - im such a blinker ha! Also the idea of planning a outfit seems alien to me, in the morning i just throw on what i feel like, what will make me feel happy and comfortable. I feel truly blessed that i don't live with the fear of other people's perception that most girls live in fear of. I think its so sad that most of my friends will not go out without make-up. One of my friends even slept in her make-up when she started to go out with her boyfriend!  I can see how deep rooted it is due to the media and now with instagram filters and selfie's its even worse.

So if I can share anything in this post it's if you're 12 or 22 please just try and not give a fuck about what people think. We are all guilty of this at time, we all feel insecure on days but just remember this:

  • you cant please everyone
  • live by your values not someone else's
  • surround yourself with positives
  • you can only be you
