Hey guys! Last week I had a shoot with a talented photographer link. We met up close to Liverpool street and headed to Brick lane for the shoot. Therefore, I had decided I would play around with my look and try to mix metallics. Metallics are a trend for Spring/Summer 17 and I wanted to try to incorporate it into a biker look suitable for the chilly spring weather. I decided I wanted to further challenge myself and play around with different shades of green. So I came up with the outfit above, which is a bit edgy for my usual style but also was a fun look to try out! I like sticking to my pinks, whites and neutral colour palettes but that day I decided to step out of my comfort zone. I combined a light turquoise metallic tank top with a dark forest green jacket and a mixed tone oil spill bag. Personally I think that the combination worked well together. To further put some contrast into the outfit, I added a gold plated pair of statement earrings to set off the silver in the jackets hardware and the chain on my bag. To finish off the look and dress the lower half of my body, I wore a pair of black dress pants and my black ankle boots. The photographer brought a pair of glasses with him, which he wanted me to wear, so those also made their way into the outfit.

Outfit Details: Tank Top (Zara), Jacket (Zara), Pants (Samsoe & Samsoe - one of my absolute favourite brands!), Ankle Boots (Guess), Earrings (Zara), Bag (Banana Republic).

Here are some photos from this morning, after sleeping in a little bit I made myself a huge cup of coffee and sat down with a couple of magazines. Yes, I was enjoying reading them but I was also doing my own personal research. You might be confused by what I mean by that, but I was going through the structure of articles, the combination of editorials and the text to photo ratios. I was also going through the magazines, writing down the most stand out articles, and then recording anything else that stood out to me. I do this in order to write down patterns regarding the magazines, in order to further understand how magazines are compiled successfully. Since I want to work within fashion editorial this is a part of my own personal research. It is incredibly fun for me, so it doesn't feel like I am studying the information, but really I am. This is just a small little thing Ive started doing in order to learn, while I am still just enjoying reading the magazines. Adding small things into your routine that will help you further your knowledge is really important in the Fashion industry. It is such a crowded industry with so many talented individuals, so It is important to know as much as you possibly can. I am aware that reading a couple of magazines, writing down important success factors, and jotting down notes and ideas is not going to set me apart from the crowd. However, I know that It can help me further my own general knowledge regarding the industry which will help me immensely in the long run. Little steps add up to big ones in the long run.

Love, Anna

Morning Everyone. Finally got my hands on a pair of black sunnies! I have been looking for ones similar to the celine glasses for ages. I wasn't a fan of the huge black Celine glasses, since they were just way to big for my face and didn't suit me well at all. I did however love the look of them. The other day when I was shopping at Wertheim Village (blog post up soon) with my mom, I found these! A steal compared to the Celine sunnies, and so much cuter. Wanted to share my new addition with you since I love them. Perfect now that spring is here, and I have already worn them for two days straight. I included a photo of me wearing them so that I could do them more justice. When looking at them straight in the packaging they look like nothing at all, but on, they are the perfect sunnies. Hope you have a cosy Sunday everyone. I am going on a little road trip soon, just have to get some coffee in my system.

Love, Anna

Today I am doing my first London Guide here on the blog. I have now been living in London for more than one and a half years and feel like I know a bit about the place. An area which I love going to is Soho. This is because it has so much energy and contains good stores, food of all kinds and also nightclubs. I have grown quite familiar with the area since I arrived in London and wanted to share some of the must go places if you come to visit!


Liberty- First of all, at the top of Carnaby Street and below Oxford Street we have liberty. Liberty is a luxury department store quite like Harrods, it is intricately designed and has some great brands. My favourite thing about the place is the beautiful flower shop and display at the entrance which I photographed in the first photo. Inside Liberty you can find all kinds of presents, stationary, designer clothing, shoes, bags, and anything your heart desires. Even if you don't buy anything, taking a look around is definitely an experience in itself.


Carnaby Street/Kingly Court- Carnaby street is one of the best streets to find some fun shops, and grab some food by. Shops include mainly high street brands like Adidas, Cheap Monday, Brandy Melville, multiple shoe retailers, MAC, Monki, etc. Basically they have it all. If you walk down the street you will come to an opening to the right, which is Kingly Court. When walking in there for the first time I really did not expect to find what was inside. Kingly Court is a semi-hidden gem with a bunch of restaurants, ranging from healthy food places like the Detox Kitchen and Whyte & Brown to Burger and pizza. I really recommend Whyte & Brown to anyone who loves chicken of all kinds. The whole place is based around chicken, prepared in all kinds of ways. Inside Kingly Court there is a cosy vibe with lights hanging around the square and little decor like the bus in picture five. There are also little cute sayings on the walls like the, "Please Smile at Strangers". There are also bars in this specific area if you are looking for a place to have some drinks! Right outside Kingly Court a new restaurant called Island poke has recently opened. It is basically raw sushi in a bowl, and tastes like heaven.


Clubbing in Soho- Around here you can also find a lot of good night life. My personal favourites are Toy Room and Cirque Le Soir. To be honest, Cirque is not for the faint hearted. There is a lot going on in there, but can be fun if you are not afraid of masked midgets... Toy Room is located right below Oxford Circus, and is also a really good time.


Wardour Street- Wardour Street is another large street in Soho. The best bar located here, is 100 Wardour Street, which has great cocktails and a relaxed atmosphere. On Wardour street you can find my recent favourite bakery L'eto (picture 8) and also Yorica, which serves Vegan froyo. The coconut one is the best. I am always one to go for the chocolate flavour, but trust me on this one! Wahaca, a really good Mexican place, is also located at the bottom of Wardour Street. Tip: Get the Classic Margarita (it is simply the best).


And Everywhere Else- I would advice you to just take a stroll around the area. There are countless little shops, bakeries, and galleries in the area. It is so rich with different cultures, and is really a dynamic area. If you have time, walk down all the way to Piccadilly Circus and go to whole foods. Even if you don't want to buy, they usually have sample stands set up. So go grab some free little snacks! If you are feeling fancy, head for dinner at the Ivy, and enjoy a luxurious dinner surrounded by beautiful decor. (picture 10)


Hope you enjoyed some of these tips and that you go walk around Soho if you come visit London. Please let me know if you know any other amazing places around the area, so I can go check them out sometime.


Love, Anna

Good Morning everyone! Today I wanted to share my breakfast with you. It is incredibly simple, but also delicious. I love eating oats for breakfast, and today I simple made some with banana, blueberries, cinnamon and peanutbutter. This meal is filled with healthy carbs and fats to keep you full for hours. Also, I add stevia to my oats to make them sweet and dessert like. It is very bland without any sweetness, so if you don't like stevia try something like honey or agave syrup. They are a bit higher in calories, but are good for the body if not overdone. Of course, I also had to have my morning coffee with a dash of unsweetened almond milk. I enjoyed my breakfast while reading a little. Such a perfect start to the day.

I find it so important to make time for a good sit down breakfast in the morning. It will help you stay energised throughout your day, and give you some structure in the mornings. This day I had 40 grams of oats, microwaved with water, half a banana, a hand full of blueberries and a teaspoon of peanut butter (if you wanted some more specific measurements). Enjoy guys :)


Love, Anna
