Happy New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year's Eve!

What fun New Year's Eve parties are! Apart I'm not attending one, this year. Sat at home doing homework and revision was not the way I had hoped to end 2012 but I can't wait till the new year! There are so many perfect things I have planned!
Now there is the matter of new years resolutions or rather the lack of them! I could be all generic e.g. be healthier, work harder. But I think I might just do what makes me happy and see where it takes me. Small goals throughout the year me thinks.

P.S. I am going to have jar where I will write down all the good things that happen so I can see what an amazing year 2013 has been next New Year's Eve!

My mind is always on you...

Day 16

The Writing Bit... (Continued form yesterday)
I feel like I should tell you more about her before I relay the story of scandal and power that followed.
"Bonjour. Je m'appelle Fleur" on the rare occasion she needed to introduce herself that was how. Tall, pale and a regal elegance that only those with the best education France could offer had. But despite all this she was closed off from the society she dreamed of living in, imprisoned by expectations and wealth.

The Fashion Bit...
Due to a minor issue with an item of clothing at about midday I changed in to a knock-off Pink Floyd tee and set about doing some college work. Shocking I know but it had to be done at some point!
Jacket - Topshop (thanks to the sales I got an excelent deal on this!)
Jeans - Topshop
Tee - H&M

All I Want Is The Taste That Your Lips Allow...

The Writing Bit...

A triangle of sporadic light lined the gap between the door. Behind lay waves of candles, well tea lights if I'm to be accurate. The waves of warm light surrounded the vast curls of silk that protected her from society, you see the silk was all people saw and all they admired. The people knew nothing of the mind that was behind the clothes, and that is how it would stay until now.

The Overview. I went all St.Trinians without being conscious of it. All I needed was my old school tie and the uniform would have been recreated.

The Writing Bit...
Dreams bigger than the universe we know, but smaller than everything we know. They would give everything of material value to go unnoticed along side us. Yet some have found they are of more worth than the things they give up to us.
The Fashion Bit...
My basic shopping outfit I need something that mean I can try stuff on, over things and a graphical tee just isn't going to cut it. And jeans are so easy to slip in and out of.

The Writing Bit... (A Haiku or 2)
Silver lights shine on
Flickering fires roar reply's
Then darkness falls down

Glitter covers you
In a flurry it coats me
We watch and marvel

Layers and plenty of them, the weather appears to be getting worse again.

The day they spent would be their first and their last, for now at least. Fate has a funny way of working. As night drew in on that winters day the snow fell on the glass that protected them, softly gently it landed without sound. They slept soundly on the sofa never wanting to left go young love that could never come to pass.

The Fashion Bit...
Not as festive as I had hoped for my outfit but all things considered it matched my day!
Hoodie: New Look, Top: Bench, Jeans:New Look

P.S. I received Hunter wellies and Chanel make-up today they will be featuring!

You Wanted To Leave...

You Wanted To Leave...

The Writing Bit...
Christmas eves eve, and you wanted to leave without any emotion like nothing had happened. It had for me we had been everywhere and nowhere in a flash, I can't begin to put into word what it felt like that afternoon. Sat by cathedrel in the misty haze of winter, you spoke as though this was the end like you wanted to get everything in before you left. It took me till now to see that was your goodbye.

The Fashion Bit...
I was busy yesterday but it didn't feel like I got anywhere with anything.

Posh Girls...

The Writing bit...
Expectaions as high as her Chanel heels, but money could buy you anything right? Not a career in fashion it would appear, it didn't matter how much money was on offer the bosses of Vogue and other such glossy magazines wouldn't take her. None of it made sense, but then she wouldn't know why till after. Until she had seen what she could do when given the chance, all it took was some clothes that were "so last season" and a needle and thread.

The Fashion Bit...
This ensemble made me feel like a posh girl ready for a private school like the ones you see in the films.
Top: New Look, Belt: New Look, Dress (worn as skirt): Angel Eye and Socks: Topshop.

I won't sleep tonight...

The Writing bit...

Bits of old and used paper litter the floor, somewhere near the centre of the madness lies a letter that has been long forgotten. The scrawled, ink has faded in the sun, leaving the beautiful three words at the end marbled but stronger than the others. Shadows of the words line the memories of the room and everyone who has ever heard them. "I LOVE YOU"

The Fashion Bit...

My old prom dress has come back as a skirt, not quite sure how that happened.

Fix you...

The Writing bit...

He once promised not to fix what wasn't broken. She was the exception, she made him forget who he was and become someone he wasn't. It was early the sun crept up over the neat rows of uniform houses, Jake was already awake and ready to go. Yet this morning something stopped him dead at the door, it was within that instance he began to see why she never left, because she lived in his head.

Ten thousand ways to lose...

 

People will always find a way to bring you down, so why bother getting up from the ground only to fall to the concrete pavement, from the building on which you stood. Or are we careless to let ourselves fall from such a height. Yet we are powerless to those who build us up only to watch us fall when they leave, that is the price of love. It is the one thing we trust will get us through this adventure we call life.

I feel like I could lose my mind...

The dizzying height of the buildings roof was under rated, adrenaline pours in to every vein in your body as you look down at the busy city below. You feel infinite as people go about their business and forget who they are in the rush to please others. There it is again the thought of setting them free, oh but how, some people pray for the worlds population you turn up the radio loud enough to block the world out and feel free for that moment.

My procrastination of my homework was actually productive in a way apart from the pile of homework I still have to do...

Spinning round my head...

Spinning round my head...

The Story bit...
The thought of him, his laugh and the ruff velvet sound when he speaks. That is what keeps her going, going forwards. Her head spins in a spiral but she just keeps on going.
In the hope she will make it, so he can see her once more. She will make so much noise the world can't ignore her.
Then with a puff of cigarette smoke she was gone from here.

For the next 365 days, 1 year I will try to wear a different outfit every day with no repeats.

Black and White

Many things are black and white, but more live within that grey area that sits between.This  was a topic that had been weighing on Alison's mind for a while now. The question was where did she fit in all of this. There were things that only she knew which made them black and white to her eye."It's as though as soon as I say what I think the issue becomes a grey area to be avoided" she said out loud to an empty room. The sound echoed off the fading white walls. The only thing that will forever be black and white even when they fade are the keys of a piano. Her fingers played softly as if she were trying to separate the white and black from the grey that was her mind. Then a whisper to herself "I am the grey area".

All that glitters.

All that glitters.

All that glitters is golden, well that's what they say. But how can that be true, when the sun shines everything glitters. Today was different though, she awoke shaking on the floor, the space above her span and swirled. This wasn't the way she imagined it to end. Fragments of the last mornings events were but wisps of smoke compared to the throbbing in her side.
I feel I ought to explain, although it is somewhat difficult. You see it all began as a game, like many tales do, except that the game was her own. A game in which she made and broke the rules.

(I am trying a new technique of writing. The idea is to write a short beginning of a story based on a key word from my Outfit Of The Day picture.)

Let me see...

Happened to be one of those days where I managed to pull a competent outfit out of the wardrobe without too much brain work. And the Bow Tie, god only knows why I put that on.                                                            Image

It Feels Like The Perfect Night...

It Feels Like The Perfect Night...

Half-Term. I love wearing all the things I don't feel like I could wear at college during the holidays. Today was a cross between preppy and hipster. I was inspired by Taylor Swifts song 22: "It feels like the perfect night to dress up like hipsters"
Behind me is the mural that I recently finished.

Simply wonderful...



I saw an image of someone else while I was flicking through numerous fashion blogs yesterday, and saw someone wearing a strapless dress over a white shirt in a pinafore dress kinda style. As the dress is from a typically american shop (Hollister) I thought I would wear it with a jacket that is also quite american to create a theme.

I feel the need to explain my title, I happened to hear this song earlier today and it has been stuck in my head ever since.

New found grace...

The title of my post is something I struggle with, today was easy enough, find a set of lyrics from a song on Taylor Swift's new album RED. The lyrics above are from Everything Has Change feat. Ed Sheeran. Their voices are perfect together.

On the subject of fashion, I thought I would wear something with a subtle amount of Red so as not to be too obvious. So naturally I wore a dress as a top with some bright statement jeans. Classy yet cute.

Hastings...

Hastings...

Taking inspiration from the fictional Spencer Hastings from the book and tv series Pretty Little Liars. Quite preppy as the Americans would say. The book is there as I finally finished the assigned english read so started The Perks of being a Wallflower. I also though it went rather well with the outfit.
Black V-neck Jumper - Debehanams
Shirt - Ralph Lauren Denim
Shorts - New Look
Book - Waterstones

Stars...

Stars are what we wish upon
They give us comfort in now
They give us hope for the future
Yet stars trap us
We can’t see past them
We can’t see ourselves only others
Stars burn bright within us
If we only knoew what we could do with them
What our world would become
Stars are what make us
Stars are what cages us
And what set us free

Hello.

Now I have had blogs before namely on tumblr. They never succeeded I just tended to forget about them. I am setting my self a challenge to post something every day for a year. Also as an IB student I will be counting this as some of my CAS.
