First University Assessment troubles | Student Life

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m going to be talking about the nerves surrounding my first University assessment, more specifically, essay. So this turning out to be a very difficult thing to do, you spend months out of College applying and preparing for University, then you get here and you’re like “Oh God I’ve forgotten how to write”, but it’s more than that. The new found amount of independence University brings is both refreshing, and difficult. You’re lecture’s are so broad about what they want from your essay, that you end up at complete stand still not knowing where the hell to start. However, I think I’m finally getting there, I’ve got a starting point, which in theory can sometimes be the hardest part of writing an essay. I do think that the best thing you can do is put yourself out there, don’t be affraid to ask questions, because if you never ask you’ll never know, and once you push yourself the first time it becomes an easier task the more you do it. But this independence also means that you have a free range of what you want to talk about, be it scripting too genres and German Expressionism! It gives you a chance to either explore something new or learn about something you love in more depth! Obviously it’s different for other courses / subjects, but independent learning spreads through them all! It’s just a challenge to get through.

First University Assessment troubles | Student Life

Living in Manchester!

Hello Everyone!

Let me just start off by saying that It has been very hard for me to try and put time and effort into my blog with moving here, and I didn’t want to be posting half-hearted content, so I didn’t. Sorry and all that, but I thought I would rather wait and get things back on track! So I’m now living in one of the most diverse Cities of Manchester! It’s took me a while adapting to the City life and moving away from home, as I used to literally live in a tiny village at least half an hour away from the nearest town and proper supermarket.. Therefore being woken up by sirens instead of the sounds of birds and horses is a HUGE difference, but I love it! The buzz of the City is very uplifting and you feel like you’re a part of something much much bigger than you are. So I’m obviously here as a student, MMU! I’m studying film & media, and I’m contemplating adding more posts to this blog surrounding that topic, as I’ve never really stated this blog as a fashion blog, I might move towards that but still include beauty and fashion posts! I mean the name of my blog is ‘emmalouiseloves’, so it’s only right that I blog about EVERYTHING I love, right? Got to add a bit of diversity in here somewhere or else you just see everything that has been done before.. Anyway let me know in the comments if there is anything that you want me to review or a type of post you would like to see more off? Maybe some student based posts? Who knows! All I know is that I’m excited by change…

Reasoning behind my absence…

Hello Lovelies! 

First off, I’m so so so sorry with how I’ve neglected my blog! I’ve had a lot going on recently, and I didn’t realise how much time had passed until I flicked onto my blog and realised how long ago my last blog post was!  Since then I’ve been on my holiday’s to the lovely Newquay, and received the amazing news that I got into Manchester School of Art / Manchester Metropolitan University! I’m so happy, and so proud of myself, it just meant that I have had a lot of prep to do, thus distracting me from keeping up with my blog! I’m sorry it got put back, but my education has to come first. I will try to make up to you all in the near future, I promise!

OOTD | Festival Vibes

Hello Everyone!

Well, with it being festival season in all it’s glory in the UK, and with me booking my return to the lovely boardmasters festival I thought I would do a festival inspired OOTD, I was going to do a lookbook, but it didn’t really work out, so here is just a simple, effortless, festival inspired OOTD for you all!


DSCN7011
DSCN7012 DSCN7017DSCN7015So here is my festival inspired OOTD, you can definitely sense some of the festival fibes, from the Dr Martens too the high waisted Levi’s. This outfit is a festival classic, and one that you could never go wrong with. I’m wearing a plain black bodysuit with a kimono over the top to add a bit of boho edge that is also something you always see roaming around the festival grounds. I really like this look as it’s really classic and effortless, yet it screams good ol’ festival vibes! Hope you all enjoyed this, leave your opinion in the comments bellow :)bannerfans_11095254 (1)

Here is my cute, casual and comfortable OOTD, that I jazzed up a bit with the near floor length kimono / cover up, which I love! The colours in it of the pinks, purples and oranges are perfect for summer! Underneath I have worn my perfect distressed boyfriend jeans, which where love at first sight. I’ve been looking for a pair like this for ages, and these where the perfect wash and fit, and the distressing isn’t too ott! To keep the look casual I wore my white tank top, with my turquoise bralet underneath so it is visible, then tied that colour in with my sandals! I think this look really works for those cooler summer days in the oh so unpredictable British summer! I love the colours, and the effortless look that it gives off. Let me know in the comments what you all think!

My Style Inspirations.

Hello Everyone!

Now, here is something  a little bit different from me, it’s a discussion around my favourite Style inspirations. Now, I do get a lot of my inspiration from what I see people wearing on the streets – street style, but I do have a few icons that inspire me in terms of what I wear and how I style it. Now this is something different from my usual blog style, so let me know what you guys think in the comments. Now, without further ado, LET’S GET STARTED!

 


alexa-chung-dungarees-1 chungNow first up, no doubt is Alexa Chung. now I know that she is on pretty much every fashionista’s inspiration list. But who cares, she is on mine also! I love how effortless she looks, but at the same time looks well put together. And the way she mixes very feminine pieces with masculine ones, to create a really edgy look, for example teaming a dainty floaty skirt with a black leather biker jacket (bottom left) Another thing she does really well, that I like to do also is her use of vintage items to make her look more unique. That is something I love to do, and was mostly inspire to by the women herself.

Next up we have the lovely Rita Ora, and I am obsessed with her edgy urban style. Ever since she popped up on the scene with Tinie Tempah in ‘R.I.P’, I have kept an eye on her simply because I love her urban street style! Mixing ripped boyfriend jeans with flannel shirts is something that I do often and love, so whenever I’m feeling a bit more urban I will definitely look  to her for inspiration, and when I move to Manchester for University in September, I will be rocking these sorts of looks even more.

Here we have the ever beautiful, Florence Welch, of the amazing band Florence and the Machine, whose music I adore. Now I love her hippie / boho style, and how original she is. Here she looks so tailored and edgy in this amazing outfit. She inspires me in so many ways, especially when I don’t know what to wear to a festival, as she is the queen of festival style:

On the celebrity front that is about it, but there are many Bloggers and Youtubers that inspire just as much if not more than these Celebrities do, I will list them below:

Sammi at ‘Beautycrush’ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCooQN8b9yPeNQgUFa9S5xew  (her new video on her style inspirations, inspired me too do this post)

Becca Rose https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfQVxBesyGHkh2pa1cYeCJA Very elegant, feminine and put together – love her style!

Jenn  Im at ‘Clothes Encounters’ https://www.youtube.com/user/clothesencounters/ Edgy and cool style, she rocks trends perfectly.

 

So guys, that’s about it for my style inspirations! Hope you all enjoyed this! Let me know in the comments what you thought! I will be back with my normal usual stuff but today is one miserable day in England so I wasn’t up too it, so I have shared with you this instead!
