Uni Outfit Of The Day.

This week it has been freezing at uni, it even snowed on Saturday and it is still October!

Whilst this coat wouldn’t be practical in the snow it is lovely and warm in the cold.

My last Blog Post – One Month Roaccutane Update!

One Month Roaccutane Update!

Tomorrow I have another hospital appointment where they prescribe you your next course of medication and the dosage. I think I will probably stay on the same amount, one a day, as I am quite petite.

One month later and I have seen an improvement in my skin but obviously I am still getting whiteheads appear, mainly on my forehead and chin. Also, my skin is still textured and red, but definitely smoother all over.

In terms of side effects, I have definitely felt those. About two weeks in I noticed them, I woke up one day and I could instantly feel my lips were really dry and chapped. I now have four lip balms around me and I cannot be anywhere without one. I even had to buy another one in town when I forgot one. Another physical side effect I have is a dry scalp. In some ways though this just means I don’t have to wash my hair as often but it can be quite itchy. Lastly, for the first week or so, my skin would burn when I moisturised it but now it is fine.

My worse side effect however is definitely the emotional side. Again, I noticed this like two weeks in when I just suddenly started crying for no reason. I have days where I just feel really spaced out and sad for no reason. I have noticed it is worse when I am alone but it doesn’t happen every day.

That is all for now, I’m a bit worried my skin will get worse if they up my dosage tomorrow but hopefully in the end it will be worth it. Also, we are entering the colder months and I just know my skin and lips are going to be so dry!

I always put in a lot of effort for Halloween but I thought I would give some easy costume ideas, perfect for students at uni to wear to house parties or to clubs.

  1. A Scarecrow. 

     2. A Clown.

  4. A broken doll.

6. Day of the Dead. 

7. A Mermaid.

8. Mary Poppins.

I think this year I will go as a clown and buy a brightly coloured skirt and crop top as I am just going to a house party on Halloween night.

Fashion Youtubers You Need To Watch.

Fashion inspiration can be found in the least expected places, YouTube however is a pretty staple place to gain fashion inspo. Here is a short post of my favourite channels I go to in order to gain inspiration.

1, PAQ

Find Them Here.

Every Thursday these four lads upload original fashion content where they mainly show their different styling approaches. First of all, the fact they are lads doing a fashion channel is interesting and the quality of their videos is amazing. They also seem to work on other projects outside youtube.

2. FF Channel. 

Find It Here

This channel uploads the latest catwalks from loads of designers. Great for instant fashion inspiration from the catwalks and latest trends.

3.Sunbeamsjess.

Find Her Cannel Here

Whilst Jess doesn’t upload videos strictly dedicated to fashion I feel like her style is different and she is definitely someone I go to for outfit ideas.

4. Megan Ellaby. 

Find Her Here

Megan’s fashion sense is so unique and refreshing, she is definitely not afraid of colour and she reminds you that fashion has no limits.

5. British Vogue. 

British Vogue

I think this channel speaks for itself. I love their inside tours of celebrity wardrobes and interviews. Great fashion content which is well made.

Review Of The Playboy x Missguided Collaboration.

Just a quick review of the Playboy collection at Missguided! My person Opinion.

From what I can see the collection is mainly lounge wear, very kim Kardashian esc and Instagram model. These items in the collection I can imagine would look cute if you wear relaxing with your partner or travelling and I think will appeal to a larger audience.

The main problem I have with the collection is the playboy logo splashed over all the items. In my opinion it makes the clothes less wearable for everyday and honestly quite trashy.

I just can’t see many other people wearing these items other than Paris Hilton in the early 2000s. For example the dress below, the fabric looks poor even on the website! However for £50 this dress should look better.

Without being all negative, here are a few of my favourite pieces from the collection, which I think would look cute and make you feel sexy.

playboy-x-missguided-grey-repeat-print-cropped-hoodie

I think this hoodie is cute. 

However £22 is a lot for a cropped hoodie and personally the matching sweatpants are too much for me.

playboy-x-missguided-white-print-cropped-t-shirt

For £15 this crop top is cute.

The collection ranges from size 4 to 24 however not in all items, which isn’t the most inclusive collection for all body sizes at all and I still do not understand why brands do not include all sizes in their clothing! Especially as the average size of women in the UK is a 14 in the first place.

The collection basically consists of hoodies with cycling shorts, sweat pants, cropped hoodies and tops. A few short dresses and a chain mail top. The colours are nude, black and white.

I think you can find everything this collection has too offer others stores like Pretty Little Thing and they have been doing these pieces for a while and in more colours, sizes and cheaper!

Overall, not innovative but I suppose it does fit in with the playboy brand and will appeal to a certain type of person. Plus the items will naturally be more expensive due to the brand.

The jewellery collection will be landing on the 28th.
