Winter Wonderland

winter wonderland 2019

Winter Wonderland 2019 wasn’t as action packed as 2018’s, but it was fun all the same. My 2 girlfriends and I went out during the week while it wasn’t too crowded, ate some sweets and rode the weakest and most sane rides possible. One of my friends brought her disposable camera and took some shots of us to sum up the evening. See what we got up to below haha.

2020

Happy new year!

Happy New Year! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, and I just came to say I’m back. I’ve noticed that I post consistently for a while, and then abandon you all for a little while due to lack of inspiration (if I’m honest). But excuses ASIDE, it’s a new year! I really want to start putting in the work to produce things I like on all my platforms, because I have a really good feeling that all that work will pay off! I’d like to post more skincare and travel content on my youtube channel (so please subscribe if you’re not already!) which is in the “Youtube” tab at the top of my website.

On this blog I want to post more thoughts, lifestyle, advice and fashion content so stay tuned for that if you’re interested !

Anyway, here are some photos from New Years Eve night (Dress & Earrings: Topshop and Purse: ASOS). Hopefully I will stock to my plan, and upload more things on here for you all.

See you soon!

Glam Rock

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s.

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s. I looked to the greatest fashion icons of the time for inspiration, including Bowie, Marc Bolan, and Elton John (at the start of his career). As you can see I had so much fun with the colors and textures, including sequins, glitter, and metallics. My style is usually 90s grunge or 2000s Britney spears era inspired, so this was a huge contrast to me, but I absolutely LOVED the challenge and the outcome. I hope you all enjoy!

The Butterfly Effect 2

Part 2 from my butterfly photoshoot series.

I love coming up with concepts and modeling them myself. I love styling people and producing other shoots, but I also love being in front of the camera, because I get to create the kind of outcome I want, you know? It’s one of my only ways of creative expression, I love it.

Manchester

24 hours in Manchester…

I recently spend 24 hours in Manchester visiting my sister, and I was so surprised by how my I enjoyed. First and foremost, let’s talk about the Intu Trafford Center shopping mall. THE most amazing mall I’ve ever seen/been to in my life. Not to mention, that I found a stall with the best candy floss I’ve tasted. My sister and I haven’t spent much time together before this trip, so it was nice to do a bit of retail therapy, get lunch, and take busses and ubers all over Manchester for a day.

Later that night, we went mini golfing at the Roxy Ballroom, which was one of the hardest mini golf coursed I’ve done, but it was so fun and I really enjoyed it.

 

The View

Always be grateful..

While my parents were in London, we went out to Westminster to meet with my dad’s friend. The sun was shining, and the breeze was perfect, and I just had a moment where I felt extremely grateful. I always feel grateful, but this time was so different. I just felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be, and I was doing everything I’m meant to, and I rarely have that feeling. The second photo is the background of the first photo, through my eyes. And what I saw while I was thinking about everything it took for me to get to where I am now. There’s not many photos in this post, but I just felt like sharing 🙂

Golden Birthday

Looking back on one of the best days..

On September 20th (yes I’m extremely late haha) I celebrated my 20th birthday, which was also my Golden Birthday! It was one of the most special birthdays I’ve ever had and I felt so grateful and loved, even though I’m 1000’s of miles away from the rest of my friends and family. Sadly this was also my first day of school, but I made the most of the day and still enjoyed it.
To start the day, I had breakfast at The Grand cafe in Green Park with my parents, and rushed to class after. After class, we went to Wildwood in Covent Garden, and to Milk Train for dessert (MY FAV). Throughout the day other little things happened that made me feel really special but I’ll spare you all the details. Needless to say, it was just a really good day.

The Attic

One of my favorite shoots to create and model for..

Over the summer, I styled a 90’s/early 2000s inspired photoshoot and I enjoyed it so much. I’ve been modeling since i was 14 years old, and I love every bit of it. The photoshoots, the networking, the fashion shows, the list goes on. But I also love the creative side behind the scenes: styling, creative direction, etc. So I try to do collaborations with local photographers as much as I can. Here are some of my favorite shots from the shoot below.

Enjoy! XO- Ally

Sea Blue

My favorite place

Some photos of me at my favorite place. One thing I love about my home so much is the beach. I’m an earth sign and the sea just makes me calm and relaxed. On this day, the waves were rough and the water was murkier than usual but I still enjoyed it all the same.

Dotted

A quick OOTD

Just a little outfit of the day to show you guys. I’ve been loving polka dots and flatforms, so here’s a look with how I styled both! My romper is from Zara, shoes from nordstrom rack, and purse from forever 21.
