Chilled Summer.

This weather has me dreaming of white sandy beaches, refreshing sea waves and ice-cold mojitos, wearing nothing but jean shorts and a tee with sand between my toes. Ahh.. I cant wait for Ibiza with the girls!

How are you spending your summer?

Peaches & Cream.

Blazer// Primark (Similar here). Dress// Zara (Similar here). Cycling Shorts (underneath)// Topshop. Bag// Ebay (similar here). Shoes// New Look (or these). Rose Gold Watch// Asos. Bangle// H&M (Similar here).

The weather has been gorgeous in the UK, as most of you will know. It has given me the perfect excuse to wear my summer dresses, especially my most recent one above. It ticks so many boxes; sorbet shade, sheer and not too short! I've been waiting to wear it since I bought it a couple months back when we could only hope for some sun. All the leg on show though has made me long for a tan, unfortunately I don't see much sun being trapped inside the computer rooms at Uni all day! I have been making the most of ice-lollies though :)

Enjoy the sun for me?!

Sunday Diary Day #6

I Thought I would show you some of my work I've been editing this weekend. The Collection is by Designer Sophie Ward, who is a fellow student on my Fashion course. She asked if I was interested in collaborating by styling/photographing her Final Collection and of course I was delighted as her Designs are beautiful. Sophie's inspiration originated from the theme 'Lights' so I related back to this when editing and here are a couple of the finished results.
Hope you like?! I am very proud!

Hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather, heatwave!!..Unfortunately, I have work to be getting on with.

Nelly, Welcome

nelly items may
Shoes// Miista. Trousers//Nowhere. White pleat skirt// Estradeur. Dress// Vero Moda. Slouch bag// Cheap Monday. (All
Nelly.com)



*And that's what happens when you forget you scheduled a post that was not complete #bloggerproblems. Here's what should have accompanied the image above:
As you can probably tell, I'm obsessing a little bit over white at the moment. Its so fresh and clean for spring.. until you actually wear it of course! I wore my just cleaned white jeans last week and only made it til lunch before I'd spilt chocolate milk on them! So, these items should probably come equipt with a travel-size stain remover if you plan on returning home as polished as you left.

I'm sure you've heard by now that Nelly.com has finally launched in the UK, and I am over the moon. I have drooled over their items on all my fav Scandinavian bloggers and now I can get a piece of the pie for myself! I'm slightly worried though because that website could send me bankrupt.. I could have easily posted a 50+ Wish List but that would be slightly excessive so I've stuck to the things I want NOW.

First things first, I need that entire outfit featuring the white pleated skirt; in my life. Its Perfect! The white joggers are the coolest way to work the Sports Luxe trend and the white tote will complement my Spring/Summer outfits effortlessly. The Vero Moda Dress is something I have in mind for my work wardrobe as the sheer panel gives the illusion of length whilst still allowing you to show off your summer tan. As for the Platforms, they're also another office essential, I've been on the look out for some edgy, black heels to give me height but with a sturdy platform so I avoid any embarrassing tumbles.

..On the subject of shoes, Nelly.com are hosting a Shoe Design competition as part of their Launch. Please Vote for mine if you like it by clicking the shoe below, or make your own to be in with a chance of winning your design sold on the website and some lovely vouchers to fund the spree you're about to have once you've visited Nelly.com!

Palm Springs

SHEER TOP//Primark. NEON BRA//Topshop. WETLOOK JEANS//Topshop. HEELS//Zara. CLUTCH//h&m. ARM-PARTY//forever21, MissSelfridge, UniqueBeads*


Primark surprisingly are doing really well for prints this season. I was stunned when I came across this sheer blue Palm print Tee (also in yellow). Its a great layering piece for mixing prints too, I can see it making numerous appearances throughout my summer wardrobe! Primark also have some pretty mirrored prints on pencil skirts that I'm considering for the new 'Work Wardrobe' I'll be needing.

As you can see my 'New In- Neon' items have already been utilized. This flash of neon is exactly how I imagined wearing the Lace bra when I bought it, I'm already thinking of other ways to 'flaunt' it!

I've got two new additions to my overflowing collections of 'Arm Swagger', that were kindly gifted to me by Unique Beads. I've had my eye on a silver cross bracelet for awhile now but seeing it combined with a turquoise stone sealed the deal! And I haven't seen anything like the Evil-eye beads on the market, truly Unique.

Sunday Diary Day #5

may 20th


I have pretty much been living in my sketchbook this weekend as my Uni deadlines draw closer and closer. So today was spent doing more of the same eased by many a tea & biscuits break!

I followed up on some very exciting emails for future projects in June, and also managed to revamp Afluenza a little.. What do you think of the new look? I'd really appreciate your honest opinions. I wanted to build upon the scrapbook theme my blog posts take on but if its too distracting I may just resort back to the simple white layout?

I am hoping to have all my links (on the right) organised by the end of the week, so that everything is easier to find and follow! There are already a couple of newbies on there so if you're on Hello Cotton or Asos Fashion Finder.. come say Hi!

Sunday Diary Day #4

happy 21st birthday VeeVee
*Photo from my 21st Night out celebrations- London

I turned 21 on the 30th of April but I hadn't had a chance to let you guys know until now! Go me, a fully fledged adult (ha! right). I celebrated by jetting off to Spain to visit my Uni friends who are on placement over there; photo diary to follow soon. Then had a lovely meal and mojitos on the day at one of my favourite buffet restaurants 'Cosmo', with some of my Fashion Course mates. And finally, had a night out on the tiles with the girls back home the following Sunday.. So I can definitely say I celebrated 'getting old' in style!

Since all the fun though its been non-stop Uni work as I have a deadline this Thursday!! I can't wait to be a free woman.. Ibiza is only 6 weeks away :D and then I start the 9-5 in July, of which I also found out Friday I may get the position of 'Head of Trends', Summer is looking up!


If you would like to give me an extra special Birthday gift, I'd love it if you could help me out and click some of these links:

1) Its that time of year again that the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards are back, I have never taken part in Blog Awards before so I'd really appreciate it if any of you love my blog enough to want to nominate it HERE under 'Established Fashion Blogger' - I wouldn't say I'm quite 'established' but I guess thats the one that best fits :) Thank you if you vote!

2) I have finally got around to creating a Facebook Page that links up all my links as it were - Youtube, Twitter, Tumblr, this Blog etc. So now you can 'Like' that HERE if you want an easier alternative to knowing what I've updated and when, all in one handy place!(because we all know I'm a little scattered).

3) If you havent done so already PLEASE follow Afluenza on BlogLovin. I'm sorting out a new domain address and I know peoples GFC are sometimes removed when sites leave Blogger/Blogspot. So if you want to stay following this blog, BlogLovin is the place to do it :)

Thank you so so much if you took the time to share the Afluenza love, you guys really do make me smile


HAVE A NICE WEEK!

Minty Fresh

Mint short suit hm zara bag 2
SHORTS SUIT:hm. TEE:American Apparel. HEELS:Zara. BAG:Zara. ROSE-GOLD-BRACELET:hm.


This OOTD is long overdue from around March time! (ancient) but everything is still available online and as you know I've a lot of blogging to catch up on and although I'm late to the party on letting you know about THAT Zara bag everyone was talking about, its still more than worth a mention even if sadly my bag no longer looks as beautiful as the photos justify above :(


So anyway, here it is.. my fav shorts suit in Springs' colour 'Mint green' and my dream bag- sleek, grey, rose gold hardware, casual yet sophisticated, its perfect! Or at least it was, until it lost its shape and aged quickly (wrinkles)


GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR EXAMS IF YOU HAVE THEM!
