Today I went to Elle's London Fashion Weekend! Me and my friend Jess went last year, so we decided to go this year too! I brought this new dress from Topshop yesterday, and this bag by brand 'Paparazzi' today. I so love this dress! I love floral prints in general, and this one is so nice, I can't wait to be able to wear it properly in the Spring without tights! I really like that it has a cute out bit at the back! I wore it with a blazer today though, so I wasn't too cold! I'll do a better post about this dress and bag tomorrow and with more pictures and details of London Fashion Weekend!

The weather did get nicer... Me and my family went away last weekend to Folkestone.... We got seafood, went to this old-fashioned style sweet shop were they actually still have sweets in jars on shelf's and measure out how much you want. We walked along the beach, went swimming (in the hotel obviously, not the beach!). It was kind of nice to go away somewhere because I kind got to forget what was going on where I live, not that anything was that bad, but it was nice still.

Last week, I went to this magazine stall I usually go to now and then, that sell back issues of magazines. I first saw the Natalia Vodianova cover. I had seen this issue in the shops when it was on sale in August, but I never brought it. Then I saw the Lily Cole cover, and I decided to buy them both. Later that day, I was reading them and now I want to buy Harper's Bazaar as one of the regular magazines I always buy, such as Vogue and Elle. The content of Harper's Bazaar is amazing. There are so many articles and everyone of them intrigues me. For example, in the Cindy Crawford issue, the current one out now (which I brought the next day), there's a feature on the what three different working woman are interested in about the new season clothes, about how this season there are ''clothes' on the catwalk, not 'creations'. It shows how at Chloe, Stella McCartney and Celine, that the clothes are 'deliciously laid-back, luxe clothes, the type they could actually wear'. There's a feature on the new height of heels being so low. 'A life in Style', focuses on Donna Karan, there's the Cindy Crawford editorial. There's a feature on the photography of Deborah Turbeville, an article about Heathfield girls Boarding school, which has an alumnae of Savannah Miller, Sienna Miller, Isabella Blow and Tamara Mellon. The images within this magazine are incredible, and I cannot believe that I haven't read Harper's Bazaar until now. Every word is just so interesting and it is everything I want to read within a magazine. I really want to subscribe, but my Mum says I already collect to many...
The Lily Cole and Natalia Vodianova covers I brought...My favourite 3 magazines now goes in this order; 1. Elle, 2.Harper's Bazaar, 3. Vogue. I know that Vogue is amazing too, and I still love Vogue, but sometimes their writing, although I understand it, is just so complex, whereas Harper's Bazaar is more interesting to read. I admire all 3 magazines equally. The people that put these magazines together and just so talented, and I aspire to one day work alongside them. To work at Vogue, or Elle, Harper's Bazaar, would be like a dream! For my work experience in November, I worked at Sugar Magazine for a week. It was one of the best weeks ever, and I loved working there so much! But one of the things that excited me most about working there was the knowing the Elle magazine was going on just a few floors up, and that when I travelled on the train everyday, and walked up North Row, that one day if I can achieve my ambition of being a journalist for Elle, that that is where I would walk to everyday!

I had been out to eat with my Parents. When I got home I checked Twitter, and it was then when I discovered the death of Alexander McQueen. It is now such a modern day and age, that it is by other peoples tweets, that I read in disbelief that he had killed himself. I think his death is tragic and its so saddening to think that the picture above was from his last show that he was alive to witness. He was the designer with the amazing knuckle clutches, the staggeringly high shoes, the designer that when I first started reading fashion magazines two years ago, was the one I remembered for having the models with their hair slicked across their faces. His designs were art....

Around this time last year, me and my friends would have been going to Berlin! I had the greatest time there. It was so cold, yet we'd wander around the streets of Berlin all day long, stopping at Starbucks every now and then when we started to wonder if we could get frost bite from how cold we all felt. We'd take pictures of buildings, half of which we didn't even know what they were called. We listened to our iPods, on repeat to Coldplay, as sometimes the sound of their music seemed to match how we felt; depressed from boredom of tirelessly walking, following a tour guide, it seemed like one street lead to another, and another, and another. Which it obviously did, being a city and all, but still. I guess we were only bored as all we wanted to do was be warm, when it was a temperature of -15 or something drastic like that. Also the fact we had had to wake up at 5 every morning to be ready for our 6 call time. I think my favourite thing about Berlin though, was the walking round but when it was starting to get dark and the city started to light up and look really pretty! I really want to go back soon!

I hadn't yet come across the site http://fashiongonerogue.com/ until earlier on this evening. So I was looking on all the pages, up to about 15 pages back or something, saving all the images I liked as I went along... I saw this editorial which I hadn't seen before and I really looked the whole look of it. I loved the models vacant expression, the use of the massive prop flowers, I liked the models hair. Obviously I liked the clothes. I think most of all though I just liked the lighting, I think it makes each picture look so much more interesting :)
