In the last couple of months a lot of subjects within social media have been outted i.e bloggers with fake followers, how brands don't repost people with unretouched photos(thanks to the lovely Georgie for making me realise this) and lately i've just realised how FAKE social media is. 
Like why are we all subscripting to this fakeness? Its not real life, its not genuine, yet theres a part of me that still believes 100% that Sarah Ashcroft has the most perfect life out there, you know what i mean? 


I have a few blogger friends, and tbh i don't see anything about them thats not perfect. And you probably think the same about me, but thats fake news lovely. Sadly I'm edging on over-weight, jobless, have the worst allergies and skin at all times. Also i cry at that fact that i'll never be a victoria secret angel. 
I also edit my photos, facetune and liquify are my best friends, i mean i don't do it like magazines do, but if theres something i don't like ill push it in a bit or remove it. Not gonna lie, it makes me feel like I'm one step closer to that perfect blogger body when in real life its no where near.

Now that people have spoken about all the kinds of fakeness on the internet i really wanna try and be more real, taking one step at a time though and also not looking at this like I'm doing it for social media but for my health and confidence in real life.

This has been such a difficult topic for me to talk about so please be kind.


from university to world


I know its been SO long since i last posted but its simply because I've been so busy with university as of late but after next week its all over and i don't know how i feel about leaving yet but it's going to happen anyway.
I pretty much have no idea what i'm doing and thats exactly what it's like these days, after university were all just people with random degrees and it doesn't really help much unless you have something lined up for you. University isn't exactly 'experience' so most employers do not care. 
Sadly this is just the way things are today for students, so I'm kinda glad I'm not alone with this.

So i'm leaving uni with nothing, i say nothing because what even is this art degree? are people going to take me more seriously? no. Do i have experience in fashion? no. But i have a degree that i have no idea what the hell to do with.
It may come in handy one day, but i don't think university is worth it. I could of spent my time gaining experience in the field i want to work in, i could have my dream job now or be closer to it than i am now.
In no way do i regret going to university because i met some amazing people here but i do think it was a bit of a waste of 3 years all just to be in massive debt after and jobless.
haha

For now i'm just winging it, I'm going to have to get a small job for now until i've found something i actually like doing but I'm fine with that. I will have to make my way up something but have now I'm just doing whatever comes my way.

If you're in the same boat as me let me know what you're doing after or how you're dealing with leaving uni, do let me know!




prom season 002


Hey guys, so heres my second prom look with missguided! i'm actually obsessed with this look, and wish i went for something as cool as this for my prom!

The playsuit is such a simple piece but the ruffled cuffs make it a whole lot more dressy and less casual!

I also pared it with these fishnet tights to make it a whole lot more on trend and edgeyyyy!

And of course with these strappy clear heels that im just loving atm, its definitely such a cute prom look if youre not into dresses!

prom season 001



Who says you cant wear all black to prom?!
I genuinely think if i could go back to my prom i'd wear black, its timeless and chic and your photos will look good forever, but no im stuck with pics of me in a white puffy mid length dress and the worst hair and makeup!

Missguided have sorted you out with their new prom collection, they have so much to choose from, stuff thats your classic OOT dresses and not so OOT like this amazing suit im styling. The flares in the trousers and blazer make it less day time 'work wear' and more going out/prom worthy.

The shoes obviously dress it down a bit, but i absolutely loved the detailing on them! 
And also the 'baby' choker definitely gives that edge.

Oh, and my hair, i really thought this outfit just went so well with my hair as my outfit is rather dressy and chic, my hair makes this outfit more young and casjjjj(ish).

Full outfit is linked at the end of this post.
