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.

You know when you romanticise a part of your life, yeah i feel like i know i'll do that about this part in my life in years to come. Though i'm obviously hoping more opps come my way but right now I know shits good. 
And amazing shits happening to all the people around me, so that makes me feel so much better.

I'm about to leave university this year and go into 'the real world' though i feel like im already there with all the other stuff i do, i still feel so horrified to see whats on the other side.
I actually have no idea what i want to do, until i can blog fullllll time. If you have any advice for me please send it over. I do want an industry job for a bit, but i just have no idea what kind. Obviously i have a passion for social media, photography, makeup.. so so many things so i'm not bothered if i do something like that for a bit. 

__

I do still hope i receive an amazing blogging job or pr job to just fall into my lap, but realistically how would i make that happen, and like soooonish.

__




I have some amazing opps coming my way atm, so lets hope i get something that pays the bills soon? I don't have my hopes up though, i know i'll have to get a job asap when i leave uni.

Anyway this shoot is featuring some amazing jewellery i received from Accessorize.
All from the Z for Accessorize collection. I'm wearing a rose gold ear cuff, bracelet, and intial necklace.

finding opportunities and getting yourself 'out there' as a small time blogger

I've been a small time blogger for quite a while now, probably on and off for about 4 years, and i've had a few opportunities here and there so i basically just wanted to talk you through how i got some amazing opps!

I've mainly worked with some small brands and some larger brands in my days and i remember my first year blogging when i had under 1k on instagram and like no views on my blog i still managed to somehow get contacted by brands. 

Now i've no idea about blogger reachout and how pr's choose what they want in a blogger but i do know constancy is a major key, even if your followers and views don't go up brands will notice if you're always trying to be consistent. 

Brand reachout for yourself is good too, email as many PR's as you like to get your name noticed and trust me someone will get back to you! Also make sure you have an email signature with all your links, this instantly makes you look like you know what you're doing.


Keep in contact, this is kinda a major thing for me because i know if i didn't reply to an email about a competition i wouldn't of worked with Farfetch or any other brand tbh. 
I try to make sure i reply within a couple of days and not leave a brand hanging even if it's a small opportunity. And being nice is alwaaaaay key!






Lastly, go to events! Go to fashion week! Go to everything you hear of, make contacts, make blogger friends and get yourself out there. I knew no one at my first fashion week, i went ALONE! Now, i probably know everyone(okay not everyone) but you know what i mean. I made friends with all the photographers, bloggers and yeah. Also making friends online, it's a lot easier and our community is great because almost everyone else thats doing the same thing as you is nice!



But thats it really, i really wanted to make this post because i've been getting some A M A Z I N G opps lately, that i can't wait for everyone to see. I literally can't believe some of the brands that have been contacting me! Especially now that i've not been that great with blogging lately, as i'm in my finally year of uni and I'm making an entire collection. But yeah, as soon as i leave uni i know what i'll be concentrating on!
I hope you stay tuned for my journey!
