A hobby is something you enjoy, not something you're good at.

(Photo's are edited)

I love taking Photo's.
I'm not any sort of professional, I've never done any courses or even lessons, and by no means do I claim to be good at it.
But its something I really enjoy doing.

This morning, I went for a walk across the sea front.
I actually love going for walks on my own (saddo I know) but I like the freedom of going anywhere I wish, taking as many photographs as I want of whatever I please.
It was super windy, wish was really revitalizing some how.

Here's a few from today.
Once I graduate and get a full time job, I'd really love to take an even class and try to actually learn how to take real good photographs!

My Controversial Skin Care Routine.

Uhm, yeah, so like, thats it.

Since the age of about 12, I have had the worst skin.
I've always been ashamed of it.
My spots blemishes are hormonal based, i've been to the doctors but unfortunately I can't go on controception to fix it as a resul of other medical problems.
So since then, for eight years, I've tried everything.
I've been from Clearisil, to Witch, To Freederm with everything in between.
I've also tried Origin, Clarins and some high end products to.
Do any of them work?
At most they work for a week or two, and then the breakout hits again.

So, I thought forget it, I'm not wasting any money on more useless products.
Since December last year, I've simply been using Sudocrem for breakouts, and Cold Cream (a traditional skin care moisturiser) 
The No.7 cleanse and care removes my eye make-up beautifully.

And my skin has honestly never been better.
My skin takes a while to heal so bar a few little red blemish marks my skin is looking pretty clear.

I completely understand this will go against many people's ideas of skin care, and would by no means work for everybody.
But; for me, I have found my absolute perfect skin care routine!

OOTD | Smock it to me.

I am totally in love with smock dresses.
I want to wear them in every pattern and every colour forever more!
This one is from Cameo Rose at New Look and was purchased in the sale for a bargain £12.
It looks great with a belt for a bit of shape, but I also love it loose and free flowing.
I think it'll be perfect in summer but a pair of sandals or even brown boots! :)

Equestrian Inspired Outfit Post*

There is no denying the recent "horse riding" trend that has swept the UK recently, its a look I absolutely adore.
Perhaps its the fact is so beautifully British but there's most definitely a certain charm about it.
So I thought i'd create my perfect Equestrian Outfit and show you exactly how i'd chose to style this outfit!

1. Chelsea Boots 
 I'll start with my ultimate favourite piece.
I've been on the shoe hunt for a long time, it seems as though boots after boots fall apart on me.
These gorgeous pair of Chelsea boots are made of real leather and guaranteed to last.
The colours stunning and I could wear these every day.
Being specifically designed for horse riders, they're almost guaranteed to last.

2. Green Topshop Blouse
This gorgeous Topshop blouse is a stunning colour, its definitely this seasons green.
The collar on it will add a brilliant layering affect to the outfit and the lace detail gives added texture and style.

3. Tweed Look Jacket
I'm a complete suck for tweed,
Its British, its classy, its perfect this winter.
This jacket is absolutely stunning, can you just imagine how it would look?
The additional black felt collar just adds style and class.

4. Topshop Cream Jumper 
Ah how I love layering.
Its probably my favourite thing about this winter.
So this over that gorgeous green blouse and stunning tweed jacket will add the most perfect of looks.

5. Denim Jodhpurs 
Jodhpurs are one of the most comfiest things I've ever worn.
They have a great fit and they're light material means they're super tight fitting.
Great for when you're layering on top and want to keep your legs looking skinnier.
This denim look keeps up with trending to.

6. Topshop Beanie
This cute little Topshop beanie will look wonderful with the rest of the outfit, and can also make it a little more casual to.

7. Horse Phone Case.
Its all about the accessories!
This cute little phone case really adds thought to outfit and is a super cute, quirky little touch!

8. Socks.
I think one of the most important and fun things abotu winter is SOCKS.
A decent pair of socks mean your day runs a much more smoothly and comfortably!
I also love the colour of these.

9. Tartan Scarf
Every outfit needs a scarf!
Zara has a beautiful scarf collection and this is just one of many.
Straight on trend with this tartan print to!

10. Different colour gloves
No winter day can be complete without a pair of gloves!
These cuties are affordable and have a wide range of colours so can be bought so match any outfit!
Additionally, these have cute little rubber bobbles on the front for grip!

11. Horse Shoe Necklace
& to finish the complete look, this gorgeous shoe print necklace with compliment in beautifully and might bring some good luck to ! 

What's your favourite piece? 
Mine are most definitely the boots, with that gorgeous jacket as a close second.
I adore the Horse Riding look, do you?

*Although this is a PR Collaboration; all of the thoughts and opinions are completely that of my own.

Life lately.

Firstly, Happy 2014!
Better late than never right?

2013 was, undoubtedly, the worst year of my not so long life.
My anxiety and depression completely took over and getting my life back to where it needs to be will be running well into 2014.
Albeit, I have quite a good feeling in my bones about 2014. 

2014 is the year I graduate, turn 21, get onto my PGCE course and start the plan the rest of my life.
I've begun to stick up for my own opinion and myself much more, and I think 2013 will be dying with the scared little girl I used to be!.

I'm not one for "2014, new me" sort of speech, but I do believe New Years are a good time to reavulate yourself a while and plan a course of action for the year ahead.

- - - 

Being a year three student certainly has hit me much harder than I thought.
Trying to balance two jobs and a placement is proving to much and I need to re-evaluate my work load.
Who knows, I may actually get a day off every now and then!

I've been granted a place upon my schools direct option, woohoo!
Now just for the PGCE interview in two weeks.
Pretty proud of myself! I've been working hard for five years to get here, and now it's happening and I'm quite excited.

Oldway Primary School based in Torquay was stunning, we travelled early and the sunrise was beautiful.
I feel quite persuaded to locate there after graduation

- - - 

I'm eating super healthy at the minute, and I'm loving it!
Still trying to fall in love with the exercise routine to accompany it.

- - - 

I had a bit of an awkward moment where I completely ran out of money,
My spending was a little out of control.
So here's to a nice new budget and saving!!
I'm probably going to need a car for my placements next year which is a pretty exciting thought!

- - - 

Really getting into hair products at the minute, but on the search for a pretty decent root booster - ideas welcome!

Much love, <3
