This photoshoot was by Annie Leibovitz in the March edition of Vogue. Partly inspired by the release Tim Burtons movie, which was of course based on Lewis Carrolls masterpiece. I absolutely love everything about this shoot, from the dresses to the use of colours and props (nice flamingos) to the range of couture designers that Leibovitz managed to persuade to pose together, something I have never seen before.
Even though its a couple months old, I'd thought I'd share it with you incase you haven't seen it, as its absolutely gorgeous!

Final Eclipse Movie Trailer - Official #2 (HD)

This is the advert for the new Eclipse film in the Twilight saga. Ever since twilight came out in cinemas I have been obsessed (enthralled, get the idea) with the books, movies, and vampires in general. while Twilight has faced some hard and heavy competition from the Vampire Diaries, i can safely say that Stephanie Meyer's creation is my first love. This is the new trailer, to get you all as excited as me...

But he's Chuck Bass!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that the Gossip Girl season 3 finale was on Monday. This season was not my favourite, as it focused to much on Little J and Serena (yawwwwwwwn) while I could quite happily just watch The Blair and Chuck show. Whilst my love for a certain Ms Waldorf is well known, I also felt like this season her outfit choices weren't as good as the garments she rocked in season 1 & 2 and also noticed a distinct lack of headband. However, I dutifully tuned into the finale and was ecstatic to see them back to their best, and literally was on the edge of my seat (well, bed) wondering what was going to happen next. The twists with Chuck deflowering little J, and his near proposal, and his getting shot had me shouting at my poor laptop and crying! Just imagining the perfection of a Blair-Chuck wedding has me in a tizzy, and I couldn't believe that the producers would be so cruel as to do this to us fans, as they are the most perfect tv couple ever! &hearts:
I am 99% sure Chuck is going to live, and my bet is on him being in a coma, and Blair rushing to his side.. at least I hope!
As for the rest of episode...
Serena needs some new facial expressions and a new voice instead of that nasal whingy sound that annoys me beyond belief. And seriously, get over Dan Humphrey, what is this; round 2951 of your relationship??!!
Vanessa: stay in Haiti.
Rufus - shave of that god awful tache.
Little J, please fuck off for good!

Apart from these minor drawbacks, the finale was amazing and has got everyone in a tizzy, and I cannot wait for the new series!

Some of the crap I've spent £130 on in less than a week...

Despite being a poor student of little/no means, I have managed to spend an alarming amount of money in a few days. Thought I would share my new purchases so someone else can appreciate them...

This vintage style dress is a bargainous £7.50 from Primark, and has cute purple and green flowers. I wore it out the other night, accesorised with a white flower(what else), but I think Its more of a casual dress and wore it to uni today.

2 h&m bikinis for my hols -
the whole series of Vampire Diaries (not as good as the tv series but still got me hooked)

2 very silly bags i probably will never use - doll bag £4 Primark, rose bag £1.99 h&m kids

some AMAZING costume jewellery in the topshop sale - originally nearly £30 for both, i got for a cheeky fiver :)

Lingerie by Day

For my magazine article project, I had to write an article on my favourite Spring 2010 trend, and do an accompanying photoshoot. I used my friend Pasha for these photos, and picked the theme 'Underwear as Outerwear' as its my favourite trend for Spring. I also tried to use light, pastel colours and nude tones, and to have a tea party theme, to make the clothes look cute rather than smutty.
