My Day In Lowie!



Hello lovelies,
So today I have an exciting post for you lovelies. Today I popped into Lowie, a gorgeous little vintage style shop, that I just fell in love with the minute I stepped in! I ended up spending a couple of hours talking to the shops, lovely shop assistant Erika - who I have to give a big thank you too as she not only was kind enough to let me take pictures of her outfit, and the shop but also took various photo's of me in all their gorgeous clothes! This shop every girls dream and I can't believe I didn't walk into shop earlier. Lowie is a company by Bronwyn Lowenthal, who has had pop up shops all around london and one reason why I love the brand is because all the clothes are ethically sourced and made. So I am going to stop typing and show you the gorgeous clothes and shop, I hope you enjoy (Warning: this is heavily photo based!).

So if you can't tell, I really enjoyed myself (hence me smiling so much!), the shop is lovely and Erika was an amazing stylist/photographer! So if you are ever in the area, defo pop in to the Lowie. (115 Dulwich Road, Herne Hill, London, SE24 ONG)

I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies.
Until next time

Review - In Real Life


Hello lovelies,
Last sunday, I had the opportunity to go the 'In Real Life' premiere with my media class. Which I was really interested in as I watched the trailer and it looked really good & Jon Snow was going to be there (conducting the Q & A after)! Also Jon sat right behind me during the screening and I was starstruck! The documentary was shot in during christmas time and most of the people that were featuring in the film, were actually at the screening too! The director of the documentary is Beeban Kidron, who I was also interested to see, as she was the director of Bridget Jones - The Edge of Reason, Cinderella (tv movie) + various other amazing things. The documentary included various first account stories from teenagers, relating to the internet like internet dating and technology e.g. blackberry's. Also the film had comments from the founder of EA sports, Wiki Leaks, novelist/blogger, MIT media people and a worker from Google.

Beeban's aims for the documentary was that she wanted to start a conversation. And I think this film definitely meets her aim, as it shows capitalism by companies and shows another side to the internet, not only the 'commercialised love' of online dating, but a realistic view of it. It definitely challenges the pro-internet view and makes you really about how society has changed and rapidly evolved. Some of the things/issues that came up, were that our generation is quite open about personal things. Also most teenagers spend 5 hours (minimum) a day on the internet and they check their social media 150-200 times everyday! (Which I am guilty to doing)

 Finally a good tip (if you didn't know already is) employers/colleges/university do check the internet to see whether applicants are a worthy candidate, so keep that it mind lovelies!


Until next time.

I wish I could fly (Miami Horror - Moon Theory) - OOTD

Hello lovelies,
So every time I wear this 'ditzy girl' style dress I never end being able to photograph it! But finally yesterday my amazing friend Sabrina helped me out and took these photo's for me. A reason why I love this dress is because of the gorgeous cut out back. My ootd consists of my pink neon H & M jumper, New Look bird print dress, my usual H & M black shoes and the gorgeous bracelet I won from Anka Boutique.





Until next time lovelies.

My outfit consists of my sheer bird top - Pretty Little Things, Navy trousers - Dorothy Perkins, Jacket- ASOS and my gorgeous Dilusso Accesories. (Warning - this is a heavy photo based post)
