Style // homeware, the h&m edition
Ever since myself and Kyle have been planning to get our own house in 2016 I have been interior obsessed. Pinterest, tumblr, you name it, i've been on it looking for inspiration on my new home (which I cannot even afford yet). It's safe to say I have become a teeny tiny bit obsessed with looking at it.
H&M are amazing at clothing basics, but who knew they would be amazing at home decor too? This wish list is just few of many things I would pick up in a heart beat if I had anywhere to put them, and the even better point, they're not too expensive! The whole design and feel of their collections are lovely and I can't wait to get my hands on some. I am loving the grey feel at the minute, but I also like sneaking a little bit of copper in there, nothing wrong with mixing it up a little.
What is your home must have? Leave me recommendations on where you love home decor too!
Travel // A little trip to Amsterdam
For christmas I surprised Kyle with a little get away to Amsterdam, although we live together and see each other every day it was so lovely spending some quality time together, and what's better than exploring a new city together. We travelled on the ferry overnight so in total we had 2 days and 1 night stay in Amsterdam, which gave us time to do everything we wanted to do but it also flew by.
I admit it, I fell in love with the city. The streets, the canal, the atmosphere, everything was beautiful. We spent most of the first day wandering round, trying out every pastry possible and even stopped to watch a street performer. Being typical tourists we visited the sex museum, which was eye opening to say the least, and we also went to Amsterdam dungeons, where I hid in the corner hoping for it to end (I love scary things but I am also a wimp). We visited Anne Franks house, if you're ever in Amsterdam you need to go. Curiosity made us wander up the red light district, it wasn't what I expected, although we did venture up on a Sunday afternoon so it was pretty quiet, nether the less it's another thing ticked off my list.
I would go back to this city in a heart beat.
Life // What does a Fashion communication and promotions student do?
What does a fashion communications and promotions student do?
Before I went to university, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I didn't know how many courses were out there to choose from, what they all had to offer, and which was the best place to go for them. I'm not going to lie, although I have been interested in fashion for a while, I had no idea I wanted to do it as a career until I found this course. I thought I would share the wonders of this course with you all, and maybe give someone some insight if they were looking to go into fashion but didn't know what.
I study this course at Huddersfield Uni which is a lovely little place, I have met the nicest people and it isn't true at all that all fashion students are bitchy. The course itself covers so many different areas, from styling, PR, Marketing, Trend forecasting, Photo shoot planning, connecting with creatives, fashion journalism and so on. From coming in knowing hardly any industry skills in the first year, I am now in the third year, feeling stressed (deadlines) but ready to get a 'real job' (scary).
This course prepares you for the real world, the world in industry. It lets you explore so many areas of fashion and helps you decide what you want to be and do. Don't get me wrong, I don't think you know what you want to do until you've been out there and tried it, but for me this is a great stepping stone.
