I searched the internet to see what was happening fashion wise near me, Manchester being my best bet (1 hour on the train from my sleepy country town). I found out about the 'Making it series' run my the Manchester Fashion Network. The series of talks consisted of:

My life has changed dramatically since i have neglected my blog, so i feel i am going to have to do a series of catch up posts to get back on track with my whirlwind of a life.
My life has consisted of:
holidays to beautiful places
appreciating being home with the boy and dog
getting a placement!
networking and getting another placement
opening nights filled with champagne and bubbly
wellies and splashing in puddles
cups of teas
an amazing grandmother turning 80
graduate fashion week
Dear blog... do you remember me?
Time has gone by so fast and I have been lost among the speed of life.
After all my busy times and adventures, I miss writing. I miss sharing inspirations.
I have so much to share with you, that I've scared myself away from writing again, thinking its been to long to start again.
But I am shoving that fear firmly to one side and my rather muddled thoughts and life will be written out, I will again share more that just memories.
much love x

This week has been crazy for me and filled with so much sadness. I've had a lot of time to reflect on things and how lucky i really am. I have the most amazing family who i love more than anything. A boyfriend who i have given my heart to and he has given me his in return. And the bestest friends a girl could ever ask for Not just my friends of a lifetime (who are truly my everything) . But i have been lucky enough to meet the most amazing group of people here at uni and im so grateful for that and i want to say thank you to all of them.
I think sometimes it takes a sadness to make you relies what you really have and what truly matters.

Me being in front of the camera is usually a massive no no. i end up talking or laughing and all in all not looking to beautiful. So you will have to bare with me while i try and get the hang of taking outfit pictures. No one ever explains the difficulty of trying to take photos of yourself... firstly i couldn't find anything to lean the camera on, then when i finally did i couldn't get the timing right and kept running back and forth like a headless chicken... then i started to hear laughing and cheering and realised the builders next door where could see me and where laughing at my attempts to pose (yes i did you like a champion idiot). Eventually I did get some barely decent photographs with only a few battle scars. Despite the madness of taking my first outfit photograph i am aiming to do more!!! (help me) so stay tuned ;)
Any way back to the main purpose of this post, the outfit!
shorts, topshop, present from santa
blouse, asos, January sales treat
wedges, new look
