15 Day Blog Challenge!

So it’s been a little while since I last blogged and the last post I had was an opinion based poll to find out which posts are most interesting to all you lovely followers and also which subjects I should post more often on! I thought that I would make a little 15 day blog challenge for my blog because I prefer to make my own and I quite enjoy being creative with it anyway. The main reason I did only 15 days is down to the fact that when I made my 30 day photo challenge I found it immensely hard to post everyday on time and dropped behind now and then cause I just got busy with coursework etc. So I am hoping this one will go better! 🙂 (Fingers crossed!)

You can join in or use this photo for your own blog if you wish just let me know! 🙂 I shall be starting tomorrow! x

The Teen Vogue Handbook?

Aspiring to work in fashion? then this is the book for you! I found it by chance when I was scouring through Amazon and I came across this little gem when I was searching for some fashion based books and I am super glad I brought it. I have been looking for quite some time for a book that informs me of all the careers in the fashion industry, a book that had a wide burst of knowledge and contained information that would help me and I eventually found ‘The Teen Vogue Handbook’.

It was published a while ago (a few years back I think) but it has a lot of information in it from advice tailored for people wanting to be stylists to designers to editors from all the biggest names in the fashion world and it has so much to give an aspiring fashion industry lover like myself, hence why I am writing a mini review on it now because it’s rather a good book and cheap too from amazon! 🙂

Style Icon: Helena Bonham Carter

Okay so roughly a week ago I picked up the latest issue of Vogue July 2013 and this issue was based around the idea of being ageless, timeless and original. Much to my contentment this months issue had the wonderfully quirky Helena Bonham Carter on its cover! Now if you are unsure who this lady is, let me just give you a nudge in the right direction because she is one of the most prolific actresses and style icons of our time.

Starring in works such as Sweeney Todd (One of my favourite films!), Harry Potter and Les Miserables she is quite well known worldwide. But thinking of her style retrospectively it is clear to see that she has a very quirky and slightly strange sense of style (Not saying that’s a bad thing!) bright clothes and outrageously thrown together accessories and shoes seem to work well for Helena making her style sense unique and different but yet refreshing.

With that in mind, if you have a chance you should pick up the latest issue of Vogue to see her photoshoot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot as it really is quite something 🙂
