So, this week me and my fashion girls headed south! And what a time we had. I hadn't been in years and was always too young to get the fullest out of a visit there, this time, I was reminded of Paris by the whole experience. I don't think I could pick a best moment cause it was all so fabulous! Highlights must include: The Wishing throne at Kensington Palace, The Shoe Galleries in Selfriges, Karaoke at some gay bar in Soho, Oxford St Topshop, Moet champagne in the penthouse suite! One of a Kind Vintage on Portobello Road! I could go on and on... Yeah, we managed to pack a fair bit into our mid-weak mini break!

Slightly devastating that we booked to go just before LFW! Typically we were leaving THE DAY BEFORE! I'll be glued to my laptop this week for all of the updates however, and I'm 100% there next year!
I've come to the conclusion that I'm living in London as soon as fate makes it possible! I love everything from the fast paced living (I think this is the only way I'm ever motivated to do things) and the amazing street style to the amount of quirky little fabric shops down back streets and choice of gigantic stores to dream away in. Not to mention the amount of exhibitions and shows there are to be seen! I've came back much more motivated and inspired (as stupid/cliché' as that may sound) and I'm ready and raring to get my portfolio in tip top shape ready for all of my uni interviews and not to waste any more hours being lazy and unmotivated!
So, on that note I'll bounce off and start organising my life! :)
Exhibition reports and pictures to follow! Too exhausted to continue

Mila Kunis delivers an excellent performance in the incredibly messed up, yet outstandingly put together film; Black Swan. Her work was not only believable but it is clear to see she got right into the characters head, and backed up Natalie Portmans amazing performance brilliantly.
Mila is one of the most stunning actresses on the big screen this season and extremely versatile in her roles; shown in her other work 'That 70's show', 'Book of Eli' and 'Forgetting Sarah Marshal'. She's effortlessly cool, oozing personality and style. As an up and coming star of our screens, I hope Kunis can make the transition from co-star to HUGE star, with that refreshing burst of energy she throws into all of her work!
As for the film itself, Aronofskys 'Black Swan' proved to be an extremely visually exciting and enthralling insight into the life and mind of ballerina 'Nina', played by Portman, striving for perfection in every are of her life, Nina lands the role of her dream in the ballet 'Swan Lake'. Her dream soon turns into a nightmare as her demons take over her life and her dark side is exposed. 'Lily' played by Kunis comes onto the scene as a free- spirited ballerina in the same company, who then, un beknown to herself, gets inside Ninas head. Nina is lead to believe Lily is after her, her role, her man, her dreams.
Without going much further, as it's a complicated one to explain without watching, and i don't want to ruin the storyline! I'd say although I definitely recomend the film and it is fantastically made, I would also note that with some shockingly disturbing scenes it is certainly one not to watched alone. But, that could just be me being a wimp!
