With new year coming along, Spring will be soon approaching. I came across these images by Adrian Samson, some of the most beautiful images of flowers I have ever seen. I love the way the images are blurred with pastel hues showing how delicate flowers really are. Even though we are all sad that Christmas is over but at least we have Spring to look forward to!

With Christmas soon over New Years is the next thing on our agenda! I came across these images titled as 'The After Party' with Alissa Geraghty and Hannah Glasby dressing up and having a good time with pillow fights and a midnight snack! Another great thing about this shoot is the outfit ideas for our up coming parties!

I love christmas! Its a chance to stock up on new clothes and accessories thanks to Santa and the January sales! My new year nail colour is going to have to be Chanel's Riva nail varnish, the light blue is the nail 'it' colour of the season for me (If I can find it before it sells out) Also All Saints t-shirts are amazing to throw over skinny jeans for an edgy look with their grungy prints. I was thinking in maybe in investing in a trilby.... i'm not sure about it I need to try it on when I get back to England and raid Topshop! The one thing I am desperate for is a pair of boots!! These ones from new look are perfect for me. I go crazy for jewellery, right now i'm loving deco pieces i'm going to have to buy the ring from Accessorize!
Nail Varnish - Chanel Mascara - Benefit Cosmetics
Ring - Accessorize Top - All Saints Boots - New Look

Created by the super young 19 year old Max Siedentopf, has photographed models submerged in dark waters giving them a ghostly like feel. The dresses they are wearing float beautifully giving the image a romantic dark edge. Shoots created underwater is one of my favourite settings as everything becomes fragile and gives motion to the photographs. Here are a few of my favourites he has created:

Going through my computer I came across images of a photo-shoot I did for my final project at university. I created an online magazine which featured fashion and beauty. I used my sister (Giulia) as the model as she is beautiful! And also the talent of Lydia Stott with her photography skills. The theme was 'Gone with the wind' where the model is seen as wind swept and wearing cute spring dresses for the shoot. Poor Giulia by the end of the day her neck really hurt as we kept telling her to swish her hair! The end result was romantic and soft images portraying the arrival of summer of 2010!

Going through fashion websites I have come across so many clothes that I would like to buy this season!I found these items that I would like to buy and wear. Topshop and All Saints are really good in finding pieces that have a 'Grunge' feel. During winter I tend to wear these colours and my main priority is to keep warm!! I particularly love the faux fur collar i'm sure I could think of hundreds of outfits for me to wear
Trousers - Topshop Top - All Saints
Fur Collar - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - All Saints Boots - New Look

Last week my good friend Jose Maria invited me to go with him and his class mates to Verona for a day trip! Verona is such an enchanting small city which has stood still in time as the whole of the city centre is pedestrianised. The story of Romeo and Juliet was born here, and what I didn't realise is that this story was actually real!! I hope it isn't just me who thought this otherwise that would be embarrassing...... We explored Juliet's house which was gorgeous with the infamous balcony with queues of people waiting to have their picture taken (me being one of them) We then went on to explore the rest of the city and finally finish at Juliet's tomb.... (Love the way the radio is playing Taylor Swifts 'Love Story' song whilst i'm writing this!)

The new Celeb fave brand of the moment worn by the likes of Megan Fox and Taylor Swift. The new S/S11 look book is a modern take on Marie Antoinette of the 'it' girl of today. Playing with brattish behaviour of todays fashionistas the look book if fresh young and extremely fun! The styling and photography of the shoot is very soft with a decadent setting. Make sure you visit the website to see the new collection! I particularly heart the 'LOVE' t-shirts!

My life here in Milan has been so hectic since day one in starting Istituto Marangoni with exams (2 so far). Man they work you hard!! Even though I started at the end of October it's only now I had time to start my blog! Here is a few photos of my new city and life!
