I know, it's been a while. School work and everything else has gotten ontop of me, so consequently, blogging has sunk pretty low down on my priority list. The British weather is pretty dire in the winter, crippling my blog productivity since it's always freezing cold outside and dark before I leave in the mornings as well as before I come home in the evening. But those are not the only reasons why I have refrained from blogging since November (craziness) - I have been unhappy with the quality of all my last blog posts and being the perfectionist I am, it has made me unwilling to post any more.

However, now it's a new year and that means time for changes. One thing that really bugged me was the format of all my posts - the mirrored outfit posts were fun to begin with, but they have quickly lost their novelty. I have some fantastic equipment in my disposal and it's time that I started utilising it to make my photography a bit more interesting. Today was such a beautiful day for once and since it is a public holiday, I decided to creep into the secondary school next to where I live to take some pictures outside the confines of my garden. My plan was almost over before it began as I ran into a caretaker but I just told him that I was taking pictures for a "school project" and he let me carry on.

I go through phases of loving different patterns - lastly it was paisley print, but now tartan is definitely my new obsession. The more tartan the better. This dress is actually from the Generation 9-14 range in New Look and it's age 12-13 which is absolutely ridiculous as it's pretty much a size 8 dress. I've worn it so much throughout the Christmas season. Next I am searching for a tartan suit jacket and skirt combo for sixth form, much like Cher's in Clueless.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post. I cannot guarantee a regular schedule of posts, since I have a total of 5 AS modules within the next 3 weeks. However, I will try to make the ones I put out as good as possible.

Thanks for sticking around.
Hope you have had a fantastic Christmas holiday and New Year.




P.S. I have no idea what a "Lookbook" is, but rhymes are cool.
P.P.S. I've missed my 1 year blog-iversary. I really am a terrible blogger.
P.P.P.S. Post coming up tomorrow on my second blog about New Year's resolutions.
