On my last day at uni, I went along the third year degree show with some friends to take a look at the work that's been done in the final year on my Fashion Communication and Promotion. I took a look round my course, fashion management, and fashion marketing branding. It was exciting to see the sort of work I will be producing in two years time, from zines to full report books. I am looking forward to gaining skills, working with brands and growing as an individual over the next two years.

I have been so excited for summer, I have a lot planned and a lot to look forward to from festivals, holidays and my birthday. I do love winter for the reasons of big jumpers and fluffy socks but now the sun is making a regular appearance I have really been into wear shorts. In H&M early last week, i found a lovely frilly black pair which I thought could work with a lot of things. I paired them with a black crop top, oversized shirt and my Adidas trainers for a casual look as I headed out to hand in my first-year uni work, whoop whoop!
I have been super busy recently with uni work, travelling home, seeing friends and family and working. I prefer to be busy than bored, so I am not complaining. I am off to Parklife this weekend so I am busy thinking what to wear to that, then it is my birthday and then I am off on holiday so I have lots of organising to do and a lot of making myself go to the gym to urgently try and get into bikini shape.
Well, I would love to say I have been healthy recently, but this may be a slight lie. With celebrating my deadlines I took it upon myself to get a Shakeaway milkshake...peanut and m&m's...o m g INSANE. It was also national doughnut day so of course I had to try the Nottingham Doughnut Company again INSANE. I made enchiladas the other night for dinner which was so good to have a good cooked meal! However, I am back on track now and eating clean to be ready for my holiday.

Fred Perry has a unique place at the heart of British subcultures and music, this heritage still informs the brand today. Since 2005 Subculture has been the platform to both work with true icons of British music and introduce some of the very best new artists from the UK onto the global stage.
Over the Summer, we have been set a brief by Fred Perry, a very exciting opportunity. A focus on Sport - music - style as a global language. We have been asked to research into Fred Perry subculture and keep a sketchbook over the summer thinking about points like...
Who are the icons and innovators of subcultures
How has British music and style contributed to a global language?
Have a look at my Pinterest account to look into my starting collection of images of subculture and Fred Perry.

Gymwear has become a big trend over the past 2 years, from it only being worn at the gym to now being worn as casual wear as well the choice, colour and designs of sportswear are amazing. Nothing is more motivating that buying new gym wear to get you in the gym, well for me it is anyway. New trainers that make you feel like you could run a marathon or even new leggings that give you that extra boost! Getting to the gym is the hardest bit for me, once I'm there I feel great so why not look great whilst feeling great...here are some of my favourite gym pieces out there at the moment!
Adidas has become very adventurous with their designs recently. I love love love their pink floral shorts and monochrome printed leggings, perfect to match with a simple top or be brave and get the matching top. My favourite Adidas style are there originals, the leggings, mesh top and jacket are simple yet stylish.
Pink Soda is a sports brand that has exploded onto the scene. The top and shorts are items I currently own and love. There so comfy and cute. The top is a 2 in one bra and top with a great design! This jumper may have to be my next purchase, who doesn't want a big comfy hoody walking to and from the gym in the mornings
MissGuided has a great range of gym wear that go from sassy to simple, definitely something for everyone. This marble crop top is perfect for summer and has an edge with the triangle mesh down the middle. MissGuided is great for students with discounts and always have offers about, so keep an eye out!
We couldn't cover sportswear without mentioning Nike. This metallic pinky/orange shorts are fun and on trend. Match these with a vest top and your favourite trainers and you're guaranteed to look great and feel great working out!

I am super into playing around with eye palettes right now, spring and summer are here it is nice to be able to play with lighter eye shadows, peaches, pinks and beiges. I am desperate to get my hands on the Chocolate bar summer palette which is full of gorgeous colours for this summer. However, I have found a trick of using your bronzer, highlighter and blusher as eyeshadows that give you this glowy/fresh look. I added lashes and eyeliner, but I also love the bare look of peachy colours and just a light amount of mascara for a day look.
I am going to be posting more makeup and styling posts soon, so keep an eye out!!
