Blogger preview evening of the Dennis Hopper's exhibition at Royal Academy of Arts


Hello lovelies,
So another day passes, yet another exciting trip to central London was on the horizon! On Friday me and my trusty blog photographer Faiza (who now has Instagram, go follow her!) got the opportunity to be part of the blogger preview evening for the late Dennis Hopper exhibition that will be open to the public from the 26th June - 19th October 2014; so it is definitely a date for your diaries if you a photography lover or are around the Burlington Gardens area.

If you don't know who Dennis Hopper was, he was a highly talented artist, photographer, filmmaker and Hollywood actor who starred in huge blockbusters like Easy Rider (which they actually showed on a projector, near the end of the exhibit), Apocalypse Now and Blue Velvet just to name a few. His craft and his legacy speaks volumes, as he does not have one but two exhibits on this summer honouring his work; the current one at RA and a film showing at the BFI Southbank -  so definitely something to visit if you love classic films.



My ootd for evening, my cardigan is from New Look, I borrowed the necklace from my sister, my pretty dress is from Boohoo, my belt is from ASOS and my shoes are from Next.


 
So back to the evening, it started with us being given blue paper wristbands and a press pack of what we were going to be seeing and also some other leaflets, which tried to entice and persuade us to return back to the historic building in the nearby future. For the time being before we allowed to preview the exhibition, we were directed to open room on the first floor which was filled with a diverse type of bloggers; who may I say all looked like professional full time journalist compared to me! Although we waited a little while, one thing I did love was the choice of drinks we were offered, it was between a delicious strawberry lemonade - which was lovely and quite refreshing or a fruity looking mojito (you can definitely tell which one I had, by my choice of words haha). After our little wait, which was perfect for me and Faiza to catch up on two weeks of not seeing each other, which may not sound like much but after seeing her everyday at school for near to 5 years; two weeks does feel like a lifetime! We were given two thorough speeches on Dennis Hopper's life, art and culture of the 60's and their own personal opinion on photographs they liked.

Now I am not arty person, just ask my art teacher haha (please don't) but I really like photography and this exhibit definitely didn't disappoint, I liked how real and emotion-filled each photograph is. Dennis Hopper really had a gift for capturing people's true emotions in the heat of the moment and me and Faiza were definitely shocked at how many locations, events and people he actually got a chance to shoot. He really had an amazing and inspiration career.

I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies.
Until next time

Pull and Bear June Lookbook 2014


Hello lovelies,
So literally a couple hours ago, I got an email from Pull and Bear - sending me their press release for their denim lookbook. Which I was first of all excited that they sent it straight to my email personally and that I get to view a lovely glossy campaign! When I first saw this campaign I thought OMG that's Arthur (Arthur Gosse - so now I think I am so cool to call models by their first names because I follow them on instagram *hands in face*),then I thought this collection is quite cute, comfy and super versatile to style - which is why I had to publish this post today!

Also I am no photography expert but I like the way the pictures are taken at certain angles, it really gives off an edgy young vibe.

I usually don't like denim skirt but this one, I can learn to like actually!
Perhaps because  it has been paired w/ a structured white shirt, cute white laced pumps and those
icon American socks - which scream American teenager! 

You can't beat a classic outfit, when in doubt of what to wear boys!


Any stonewash denim item, just oozes effortless and cool!

Super cute top!

Channelling the Americana vibe!



How cute it this look, so 80's all she needs is a red lip and gold hoop earrings!
Who says you can't wear Double denim?

 
His n Hers comfy Sunday outfits

Appreciate the little things P3


Hello lovelies,
It is that time again, where I take you around my local park and do a mini ramble. Since being finished from sixth form, I feel more comfortable and I am slowly becoming more relaxed and carefree. It is so hard to just let your body relax, especially when you get used to not sleeping, being stressed and not having time for yourself. Although I hope that these up-coming posts will reflect my laidback and relaxed attitude to the summer. I am also on the hunt for super cool places to go not only in London but also in England - so if you know any, I would love to hear it!

Also something I realised a couple years back, it is so easy to moan about things you don't have and about how horrible you are feeling at the moment in time whatever the reason - but always remember there are good aspects about you as a person, that period in time will pass and there are always people in this world worse off than you; so try not to take too many things for granted because you know you would never want to regret doing or not doing something.
