"A boy who won't be good might just as well be made of wood." Blue Fairy, Pinocchio (1940)

I’m sure you all remember a few months ago when I started talking about Dreamise and are probably sick and tired of hearing about it, but here’s the finished product. I love the way the photos turned out, and how vibrant they are. When I showed one of the site's creators some of the other photos he said she looked like the blue fairy, and I couldn’t blame him. There’s something ethereal and stunning about these photos. If you want to see a video of the actual shoot, then look on my sidebar in the YouTube section. It’s there.

 It’s been a while since I updated you guys, so I better get to it.

1. I’m currently transitioning into veganism.
2. I just completed mid-terms.
3. I picked out the new point and shoot camera I’m upgrading to, and giving Mother Dear the old one.
4. I actually made a few friends.
5. I found someone I like.
6. I’m wearing my fabulous outfits to class every day.
7. I have the most amazing teachers ever, and they’re all female.
8. I’ve become a feminist.
9. I’m probably going to be wearing my hair in an afro starting next month.

I have a few posts planned for the coming weeks, and I’m really excited about them. One of them is going to be talking about my obsession with menswear for the autumn and winter months. I won’t get too much into it, but it’s going to be talking about breaking gender roles, and why it’s okay to wear menswear too. I’ll talk to you guys in the next one, and have a great day.

Someone has to die in order that the rest of us should value life more. - Virginia Woolf

I was supposed to put up this blog post last week, but a member of my family died. I’ve been so out of it the last few days thinking about when I first met him, and how in his last few months he managed to change my life. I attended his funeral yesterday, and the message behind the service was amazing. They didn’t call it a funeral, but a celebration of his life. We danced to the music, listened to the sermon, and laughed at the funny stories that were told. As a reverend he touched so many people’s lives, and did so as one of the most straight talking and real men I’ve ever met in my life.

He would have loved to have been there because we laughed so much, and he was always making everyone around him laugh. Everyone kept saying that when they asked him if he was scared to die he said no. He planned out his entire service including the program, menu, music, and where he was to be buried. It takes a hell of a person to do that. I miss him, but I know that he would want everyone to be happy.

I’ll talk to you guys about the photo shoot that happened on Saturday soon. I’ll see you all in the next one, and have a great day.

"Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay?" - NICO & VINZ Am I Wrong

On Saturday Mother Dear and I went out and took these photos, and I think they’re stunning. She’s really improving as my blog photo taker. I pulled this look together that morning, but I already kind of had the look in mind. I wanted to style my two favorite floral dresses (you’ll see the other look later this week), and I love the way the outfit turned out. I would pair this look with sheer black tights and white over the knee socks in the fall/winter.

I found the loophole in my schedule, and I officially joined the newspaper. I’m so excited. I’m still in the phase of being nervous about talking to people, but I’m sure it will pass. I also wanted to mention the fact that I won the dreamise contest for this month, so if you voted for me it then thank you so much! Your votes really did make a difference. I posted my next dream as an ASOS Gift Card, so please vote for again for September. I promise to post really awesome OOTD’s if I win. I hope you all have a really great day, and I’ll talk to you in the next one.
