I'm Back :) Who's On Tumblr?.x

Safe to say I've been away from Style Diaries for long enough! :( The last month of 'Summer' flew by far too quick, and then BAM! Back to uni last month to begin my final year. Yikes! Well, as part of my Publishing The Package unit, our task was to create our own blog on tumblr on anything we desired and to do weekly posts for a month. I considered doing a sister blog to Style Diaries, but after much deliberation I decided to focus one one of my other passions. So, being the music fiend that I am, I decided to do a music blog called: Your.Underground.Sounds. Most of us love music right? And many of us like to know about new talent hitting this face faced industry. In short, my blog is a new initiative to promote and support emerging acoustic and neo soul talent across the UK and America. Not only that, but old artsist who may be making a reappearance with new singles or albums. So, if you love music and want to read reviews, opinion and discussion, as well as hearing some great music, then check it out! Already on tumblr? Then follow me & I'll follow back :)

This is the first proper post, but I'll be updating Style Diaries with the new posts each week as and when I do them.

17/07/11 Issue Of S Magazine..&& I Have My Credits!

What a miserable afternoon! It has been raining non stop today in Birmingham, and pretty much everywhere else. I was sitting on my sofa snuggled up in my pj's thinking how can we be in the second week of July and have this kind of weather. Then I remembered the importance of today. Whilst on work experience in London at Sunday Express, the swimwear photo shoot I assisted with was meant to be in today's issue of S Magazine. I text Lindsay, one of the girls in the office to double check, and she said I should definitely go and purchase one because my name was credited, alongside all the credits I did for the outfits :)

So here are a few pics of the featured shoot, admittedly, I'm happy my name was mentioned because I worked super hard that day, running around on demand, working on creative ideas with the editor Paula, and making sure the model Josipa Kusic looked perfect in each of her garments and final outfits. Well worth it though. Have a look and feel free to comment! x

Birthday Girl :) 20Years Young.x

Afternoon! I'v'e been missing in action for a while, but now I have my lappy & camera back where they belong, I can get back to blogging as usual! Thought I'd do a quick post as its my 20th birthday today :D Yesterday I had a wicked day spent in Brighton with my friends and loved ones, it was so much fun, from the demented seagulls, slightly drunken antics on the beach, windswept hair & hilarious photos, horrific rides on the pier (involving me screaming the entire way through them), good food & company, near misses with the trains and a whole bunch of laughter from begining to end. Defo worth the stress of organising, and the best birthday fun i've had a while even if I flopped into bed at 1.30am this morning fully clothed :/

Today, despite not having the lie in I desired (due to my phone ringing at 7am with my sister bellowing happy birthday) I intend to have a relaxed afternoon then head out for dinner with the family this evening. Roll on my 21st ay ;)
