Editorial Fashion #1

 
For those of you that don't know, I'm currently studying A-Level textiles and this year my topic is "Editorial Fashion". Editorial fashion is something I've always been interested in as I've had magazine subscriptions since I was about 8 years old - making my way from Teen Magazines to ELLE and Vogue. I love every aspect of these magazines and I've always admired the photography and styling for the editorials. Throughout the next year I will be doing a lot of shoots with various different "models", themes and styles and I thought I would share them all with you! So without any further delay, here is my first shoot...

Primers I Couldn't Live Without!


Just a few short years ago I had no idea what primers even were. I was at that stage where I used foundation that was 3 shades too dark, mascara that was clumpy and eyeshadow that was too glittery for words - but at least I've learned from that terrible terrible stage, right? Definitely. In the past couple of years I've learned a million and one makeup techniques and tricks and an important one of those is using primer.

My Summer Essentials


The weather has become so much hotter recently and the real summer is finally coming out! I thought I would put together a little list of my summer essentials for this year which hopefully you will all find helpful.

Magazines - Perfect for reading when you're sunbathing! I personally find it really difficult to get into a good book. I'm so picky and my mind always wonders so before I know it, I've read half a page and I have no idea what it even said! Because of this, magazines are perfect for me. They're a quick read with imagery that keeps me captivated the whole way through. I really recommend a subscription as, in the long run, it's more cost effective and from magazines like ELLE, you receive a special cover and lots of discounts on products, events and experiences.

The Body Shop - Tea Tree Body Wash


I went into Cambridge last Thursday and couldn't help but pop into The Body Shop! I have a slight obsession with the smell of tea tree so this range immediately jumped out at me. They had so much variety in the range, from facial washes to shower gels. From the range I purchased this body wash (£6.00) and a Tea Tree Concealer (£7.00), the concealer I'll be reviewing in another post!
