River Island; Sale Picks


So I've been home for a few days now and I've already been lured into the River Island sale.  And yes, I have already purchased something...oops.
I've picked out a few of my favourite things available on their website in the sale - with everything shown here (except the coats) under £20!  I've noticed I've started becoming more attracted to monochrome clothing recently - so much easier to wear!  So that explains why the majority of my picks are black and white.  I am seriously in love with the high waisted trousers though, and if I can find them in store, they'll definitely be mine.  They are amazing!
Don't forget that River Island are also doing student discount (!!!) in store at the minute, something you don't want to miss as they never ever do student discount!
Have you bought anything from the sale yet?

THE RE-EDIT | photography

Hello! Sorry it's been a bit quiet around here recently with a lack of fashion posts, uni work and deadlines have definitely got the best of me!  But i'm off for almost 3 weeks after tomorrow, so hurray!
I've been re-editing images for my portfolio, so I just thought I'd post a few here and see what everyone thinks!

The Maine | 53 Degrees

On Sunday night I got to photograph one of my favourite bands, The Maine, along with 2 great support acts, The Lottery Winners and Trapped In Autumn.  The gig was amazing, and being stood side stage was the icing on the cake!  16 year old me was definitely in her element...I'm definitely 21 now though.  I wanted to share some of my photos from the night with you lovely lot.  :)

First up were the lovely The Lottery Winners.  TLW ticked all the boxes - great music, great crowd interaction and camera interaction!  Definitely a band to keep an eye out for and I'd love to go see them again!  Nice one, guys!  

Next up was Trapped In Autumn.  Very Paramore-esque but in a good way!  I enjoyed their set and again, would love to see them again!

And of course, The Maine!  I can't even begin to explain how much I love this band.  I was obsessed with them when I was around 16/17, and when I heard they were playing in Preston, the obsession re-started.  Their set was amazing and I even got to take some selfies with them afterwards.

Happy happy happy!
