A bedroom on a budget.

Calling all students who are looking to spruce up their rooms! I have hunted around to find bits and bobs for anyone who like me is on a strict budget. I doubt these items will propel your room to pinterest fame, however they are such good value for money and obviously the only way to truly make a room feel homely is with your own personal items e.g. photos, cuddly toys (we all have them!) etc.

Clockwise from top left:
IKEA Ofelia blanket in white, £15.00
B+M square ceramic table lamp, £3.99
Wilko storage unit with 4 drawers, £10.00
B+M pop up laundry bin, £2.99
Argos colourmatch bedding set, £8.49 (for single)

OOTD - pastels.

Something I recently realised is that although I love pastel colours, I don't actually own many pastel pieces. This skirt, kindly gifted to me from my friend, made a welcome addition to my wardrobe floordrobe. Not only am I in love with the colour but the cut and length of it is perfect. I love this skirt for summer however I cannot wait to pair it with chunky knits and ankle boots come Autumn/Winter!

Skirt - ASOS
Boots - New Look

The stylist spotlight: Hanna Kelifa.

August's stylist spotlight features Hanna Kelifa. During her studies (design studies and photography), Kelifa constantly searched for work experience within the industry and was offered an opportunity of a lifetime by Edward Enninful who took her on board to shoot for Vogue Italia. Since then Kelifa has made her mark on the industry and has worked for the likes of i-D, W and Russh. Below are two of my favourite shots showcasing her aesthetic.

I love the softness and the colours in this photo, although it's supposed to be grungy there is something sensual and romantic about it.
From my background you'll have guessed that I love black and white photos and this one is no exception. This is minimalism done well.

I would highly recommend you guys check out more work from Kelifa's portfolio!
