This last week has been non-stop, and I've got a feeling this week will be the same. 
A couple photos above to illustrate this.

MILLENIUM.

(Zara dress and bag)

Some blossom, a cherub and me in a white dress. Perfectly apt because my sister is getting married this weekend, but mainly because I love the cut and texture of the dress.

EVERYDAY.

Photobucket

I realised yesterday that I use, or perhaps recycle, everyday objects as places to keep my toileteries. A few examples above are cotton buds living in a espresso cup I found in a charity shop, a glass juice bottle is used as a vase for some freshly picked bluebells, and a vintage perfume bottle keeps my toothbrush. I also use a big jar for cotton wool and a saucer for soap. 
I find that these kinds of objects look so much nicer and simplistic than the plastic wrappers and boxes my toiletries come in when I buy them. Now you know.

DIP.

A splash (haha) of summer inspiration. The blues and pinks in these make me want to jump on a plane to somewhere hot. Not long now.

Have a lovely weekend!

PENTAX.

My Pentax worked! After lots of worrying about whether I was just taking over or under exposed photos (the light meter is broken), I finally finished the film and got them developed along with some disposable cameras.

Photos from the Pentax are the first, fourth and fifth. Photos: me.

Black and white portraiture always seems far more personal. It seems to capture the person more than the location or the clothes. I always remember Ted Grant's quote that 'When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes.  But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls.'

TARTAN.

Loving all things tartan and checked at the moment, especially in the form of oversized shirts.

SHAKUHACHI.

Photobucket

This Shakuhachi dress sums up how I wish I could dress on a daily basis.
Sadly, can't find anywhere in the UK where I can buy it!

The good part about my slight tumblr addiction is that I get to look at lots of images, apart from semi-naked girls I also love interiors.
 Prime examples above.

(Zara SS12 dress and jacket, Vintage sunglasses)

I never win anything. Ever. But on Thursday I got a call from Zara telling me that I'd won a spot on the 'People' section of their website. I was ecstatic (still am, I WON!). To see the chosen image clicky click here.
Cannot wait to receive my prize, it'll come in very handy for the end of university!
These are a few out takes from the photos that Jess took of me for the competition.
