“I notice that Autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.” — Friedrich Nietzsche


Sasha Pivovarova's Free People campaign, shot by her husband - honestly one of my favourite ever campaign both by her and in general. Everything is so damn beautiful.

While mournfully cutting my hair, I glanced across this beautiful, picturesque editorial featuring one of my favourite models (beautiful inside and out) - Natalia! Absolutely love the warm hues of this shoot and the great outdoors being the perfect backdrop for such simple and comfortable clothes.

Shipwrecked

This shoot is absolutely stunning, combining two of my favourite things - the sea and complimentary pastels. Anja Konstantinova also gives me a somewhat Abbey Lee vibe here as well, takes us all back to the good old days of the golden 2006-10 era.

Update

It's been a while since I've updated here. I've been drowned under the rapid surge of the exam sea - there're so many things to do and not enough time to do everything I want to.

This blog post shall just be a short one of the most miscellaneous things:
1) Along with managing school work, revision, uni apps, there's still the dread of finding a prom dress. I think I found one.
2) Just discovered an immense love for frozen watermelons - probably due to my long-term relationship with popsicles and all those sorts of icy stuff. It's really simple as well, just cut your watermelon up into tiny triangles, stick a fork in and put 'em in the freezer for about a day or less. Try it!
Here's me and sister hand-modelling for these on my Instagram. I miss her loads - she recently left us to study in the UK! Despite weekly Skypes, it doesn't feel the same. I have successfully dominated her room though, and have taken on her identity in old PJs and forgotten things she didn't take over there (not in a creepy way)! Can't wait for us to reunite at the end of the year at Christmas.

3) And talking so much about studying, I found I work best when listening to calm music, sipping hot coffee in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (I think they know my name already… I've been going way too often) and working on essays to hand in. Here are two playlists which I've made that I like to listen to when my brain is working like a machine - also a good way to relax after!


Have a lovely week! :)

Music: Sweater Weather Playlist

Today I went to watch Maleficent and boy was Angelina Jolie perfection! She looked so beautiful and strong despite playing a supposed "villain" and her acting was definitely top notch - as well as the production! It was a beautiful film, definitely advocating the right values (a little tired after repeating it from Frozen though, almost makes me feel like they're capitalizing on it but it probably wasn't their intent), and the sets and animation were breathtaking - definitely made it realistic and otherworldly. I personally feel she made the show though - can't picture anyone else doing a better job than she did, honestly. 
I was also pleasantly surprised to see the familiar face of  Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter's Dolores Umbridge Pink Fanatic) and also the appearance of Angelina's daughter! 
So, if you happen to be free, do go and watch this amazing film, I highly recommend it!
Also, here's a playlist I made inspired by the gloomy voice of Lana Del Rey crooning out the famous tune from Disney's age old Sleeping Beauty as the credits rolled - her rendition was absolutely chilling. Enjoy and follow if you'd like!
Have a great weekend :)
