UPDATE (Uni Term one) - Lifestyle

Hey Guys,

So its been awhile since I last wrote a blog post. It's been a busy few months as I have just started university. I am studying fashion marketing at Falmouth university in Cornwall.
On the 12th of September I moved into my new accommodation on campus. I have a shared bunk bed room so I was pretty nervous about meeting all the people I'd be living with and I found the first few days really hard but each day became easier as I settled in. Freshers week wasn't quite the wild week people talk about but it was still amazing.

The excitement to move back to England was too real at the time.

First trip to Gylly beach for the scavenger hunt with fashion photography. 

I have already found my favourite chippy in town and had too many cheesy chip butties.

On the Wednesday of Freshers week we had a pub crawl in town.

On the Friday the whole fashion department went on a trip into St.Ives to explore and look round the variety of art galleries.

The first was the Tate. My favourite piece was the room of wishes. The artist had asked the locals to write down something they wish for then as you travel through reading the wishes on the ribbons you choose one you agree with to take. There was some really interesting ones but the one I choose said 'I wish gender, colour and religion didn't matter'

We also went to the Barbara Hepworth sculpture gardens. 

 I found a few other little galleries and my favourite was Millennium gallery and I fell in love with the two above pieces.

All ready for the freshers ball.

My first Cornish pasty

Flat trip to the beach.

All ready for the Wales v England rugby game which was on just before our final freshers event which was Heaven and Hell themed. It was amazing seeing Wales win then drunkingly rubbing it in everyone's face at the party. (sorry English readers)

Heaven and Hell

A day with the flat girls exploring some of the vintage shops in town.

Sunset over campus one day.

One of the many flat nerf gun wars that have taken place.

All ready for the 80's party. aka. the best SU night so far. At the end of October I got to come home for a week which was much needed by this point and it was great to see everyone and celebrate Halloween in Cardiff.
I am not home for Christmas and plan to right another post like this about Halloween to now, hope you enjoyed it and I have loads of posts planned and can't wait to get back into blogging.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside - Outfit post!

Hey Guys,

Sunglasses : New Look
Top: New Look
Jacket: Miss.Selfridge
Skirt: Miss.Selfridge
Sandals: Red Herring

 One evening on our holiday in Devon we went down to one of our favourite restaurants in Brixham for ice cream sundaes and took a walk along the beach.
I went for a nautical all- blue ensemble with double denim as well. A classic blue stripe t-shirt is a summer essential for me and teaming it with a denim jacket always works well. I love the extra details in this outfit like the sequin shoulder details on my denim jacket and the buttons on the front of the skirt.

What a beautiful sunset.

 I apologise again for the lack of posts this summer. I am not sure whether to do a few lifestyle posts about my holiday, let me know what you think?

Posh Totti - Style post

Hey Guys,

I wasn't sure how to organise this years holiday posts. Last year I did three lifestyle installments with what I got up to over two or three days, including outfits and reviews - Let me know if you'd like a lifestyle posts to see more of Devon and what we got up to but for now here is the first holiday outfit post.

On the Sunday of our holiday it was my parents wedding anniversary so we headed to the Bury head hotel in Brixham for Sunday lunch and pimms in the sun. 

This was our view for our drinks in the garden.

Culottes have been everywhere this season and I love them but wasn't sure if I could pull them off but I spotted this black pair in the Miss.Selfridge sale for only £10 and I am so glad I grabbed them. They are so comfortable to wear but so formal at the same time. 

You may remember the handbag and jacket from my birthday haul (read here). They are the perfect match but I love balancing out the pink bold floral print with the rest of the outfit all black. 

I had been lusting for a bralet crop top for a while now but they always seem ridiculously over priced for the amount of fabric you are paying for and as it's quite daring I was never really sure how often I would wear it so I didn't want to invest in one. I ma not a big fan of primark but recently I have been going in for a browse and spending a few quid like when I spotted this lace crop top reduced to £3 and I am so glad I spotted it. I have been wearing it a lot under shirt or sheer tops instead of a tank top. 

I finished off the look with my favorite black heels with the gold straps which weren't the best idea for climbing down to the beach.

Crop top: Primark
Culottes: Miss.Selfridge 
Shoes: New Look (old)
Necklace: ASOS
Ring:* Gemporia
Bag: Fiorelli 
Sunglasses: New Look(Old) 

Hope you enjoyed this outfit post and photos of the view from Brixham looking across and Torquay and Paighton. Sorry for the lack of posts over the summer. 

Love Charlotte
