I've got my last winter exams coming up this week, and you know what that means- regular blogging. In the mean time I've been busy applying to schools and practicing photography. So here are a few snaps. You may have noticed I've decided to layer on the jewellery, I have been truly inspired by the likes of Chanel's pre-fall 2012 and Iris Apfel- look forward to a post in homage to the wonderful trend setters.

Sample Trend

Have you ever wanted to know if that 'amazing' review is actually true? If the product  does what it claims? Sample Trend offers just that- and really does do what it claims.

Sample Trend is the UK's first 'try before you buy', with it having launched in 2007 in other countries such as the wonderfully fashionable Harajuku notorious Japan to even Hungary. Giving customers the unique experience of deciding whether or not its a good product to purchase- for example, it simply just does not get any worse than buying a skincare product that instead makes your skin worse (we've all been there). So Sample Trend is the perfect convenience.

I was kindly invited to review the experience, and they are so lovely! The shop itself is spacious and everything is easy to select- whether it be beauty products, magazines, or even food! The stock changes weekly, if not monthly so you'll never have to worry about running out of products. Not only that, you end up choosing products you would never dreamed of choosing-i.e fake tan, most certainly not a tangoed type of gal' but worth a try for summer.

Oh, and you maybe thinking sample trend equals sample size. Sample trend equals full size. All you have to do is simply sign up here, and you can receive at least £300 worth of products a year! With already over 800 people signed up since the new opening in October 2011 in the heart of London in Goodge Street, it sure is trending. So what you waiting for? After all, it is a trend.

Rush in the wind

Its been too long since I last posted, being caught into the rush of the winder winds-Christmas shopping, Christmas eve, Christmas day, boxing day, and new years. Santa was very kinds this year- photography lights and equipment, fashion and photography books, and lots and lots of shoes. A pair of these shoes being warn in the photo above. What's not to love about Jeffrey Campbell. I like to call them my deceiver and litas.  They may look like a beautiful pair of Jeffrey Campbell litas, though of course with my teenage budget I had to indulge into various copies- improted from Japan at the price of £15 and £20 post and packaging-bargainitas. I was tranced by the price so much so, that the adrenaline casued me to buy a size too small-oh the pain one goes through for fashion. So with the shoes in mind, reminding me very much of beetle crushers, I was inspired to create an AW11 60's inspired look (as seen in shows such as Prada and Philosophy). So out popped my sale purchased top and bottom Mondrian set from Asos. The print emphasised by the leggings and headband. Oh it was such a fun and divaresque outfit to wear matching the cheer and glamour of Christmas and new year. Hope you all had a fab Christmas and new year, will be replying to comments! Izzy xo
