It's New Years Eve! I can't quite believe how quickly this year has gone. It feels like lots of big decisions were made, lots of achievements and lots of fun. This last week I've also come over with immense excitement for next year as I've already got new things planned. Can't wait. 

I also just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to every one of my readers! I love blogging and seeing more and more people engage with my blog is amazing. A big thanks to everyone who voted for me in the Company Style Blogger Awards as that was a massive achievement for me and I'm overwhelmed with the support of that, so thank you!

Hope you guys are bringing in the new year with positive thoughts & plans and have fun counting down! 

P.S I was going to post a full outfit post today but thought I'd swap it for a New Years post - so the outfit will be up on Friday instead of today.

Love Holly Anastasia X


Merry Christmas

Hey babes! I just wanted to wish you all a quick Merry Christmas before the day gets on! I took this photo with my new Selfie Stick haha!

Have a lovely day with your family and friends & I'm sending love to those who are maybe having a difficult time as well. 

I'm about to go have my Christmas lunch so I'll see you guys soon...have a good one

It's Christmas Eve! I'm so excited and having such a good time with my family. We've just come back from Sheffield and I've finally finished buying the last of my Christmas presents, phew. I think I'm coming down with a cold, as is my sister, but hopefully it'll pass quickly. 

This post was originally going to be some other photos but I was looking through these and saw the Nutcrackers in some of the photos and thought they were appropriate. I love this outfit and it's very sixties with the mix of monochrome. I think this outfit went amazingly with the setting of Piccadilly behind. It was so busy when we went and it was quite funny trying to get pictures.

It's so weird looking at my hair in these photos as it looks so different now. Unless you follow me on Instagram you won't have seen it since I had it done! I'll try and get some pictures up soon.

What is everyone doing tonight for Christmas Eve? Have a lovely time pups XO

Joe & The Juice

Some pictures from an outfit we shot in Joe & The Juice. I love this cafe and they serve the most amazing juices and sandwiches. The one I'm drinking here is the Ironman which gives you energy, which is what we needed on that day haha. 

This outfit is a more casual one and I think it's a nice one for a day out as well. These jeans are Katie's but we're exactly the same jean size in Topshop jeans so they fitted perfectly. I love the mix of the casual blue jeans and the gold accessories. The shoes are from Missguided, which I brought with another pair (you can see in this outfit), and I love them. I can't wear them anymore because it's so cold but these camel coloured ones are so comfortable to wear. I think the shoes dress down the outfit for a more casual look which I really like.

I had such a good birthday yesterday and it was so lovely to see my family. I got some amazing presents from my friends & family and I can't wait to show you a few... One of them was a selfie remote which I thought was so funny.

I did try and get some photos of my dress yesterday but they didn't turn out well so I'll try again today whilst I shoot something else for you to see. Tomorrow I'm going out with my friends which will be so fun but friday will be tiring haha. 

Love Anastasia X

Juice.



Here's some preview shots from London. I love this juice bar Joe & The Juice and when we shot here the staff were so nice. Go there if you get the chance! Can't wait to show you the full outfit soon.

I've finished my penultimate week of school before the Christmas holidays and I'm so happy I'm almost done. Only a week to go! 

On Tuesday it's my birthday so I'm hoping to get a post up of my outfit as I'm going out to the pub & a meal. Fingers crossed I'll get that done too. Such an exciting weekend as well! I'll tell you about it soon.

Our Work Is Never Done.

This quote is quite a relevant one and one I love a lot. 'Our work is never done'. There's always going to be another challenge, another goal or another person to help.  Although I do have the occasional lie-in on a weekend, I love to be active, motivated and have some sort of direction to be heading in. I think there's something so admirable in a person who works continuously to achieve. One of the things that makes me happy is when people start doing something they love; like a job, dream or goal they have in their life. I find that really inspiring.

Recently inspiration has come in the form of Danny Baldwin's photography. I went to the V&A with school and attended his talk about his journey into fashion photography and what advice he gives to people trying to get into the creative industries and it was actually really engaging. After the talk I found his photography and there was one editorial shoot he did for Hunger Magazine - 'Man v Man'. I've started to create some artwork based on his work so once it's finished I might show you guys.

This outfit relates back to inspiration as this was the first look for our shoot in London a few weeks back. We stepped up from the tube into an amazing sky onto Oxford Street and for some reason it felt so inspiring, although I've been there many times...

This fur jacket is soo gorgeous isn't it? I saw it on Isabella Thordsen's instagram and instantly fell in love. I got it on ASOS although the brand is Barney's Originals. It's such a gorgeous soft touch, really lightweight and I love the ombré colouring. I think this look is perfectly simple, as there's no need for anything jazzy with this fur going on. The cat eye sunglasses also finish off the outfit and make it a bit cleaner, in contrast with the fur. I finished the look with simple gold accessories; some shaped rings and a cuff. Very simple additions but I feel that they lift the outfit and emphasis the coat a bit as well.

Today I'm going to get my hair done and I'm soo excited. The run up to my birthday is a good one this year and I've got things happening every day. I'll show you my new hair after its done - maybe tomorrow!

Love from Anastasia X

Late nights late nights.. agh my life at the moment. So stressful. I've got a drama exam tomorrow (wish me luck), then after that I've got 4 birthdays to celebrate, one of which is mine... Then Christmas and a few parties between that. Busy, as always! I never realise how busy I really am until I write it all down and realise I have no free days haha. Oh well, that's december. 

I had been thinking about names today and why they define people so much, something got me thinking last night. So I thought I'd name this post Anastasia. It's funny because Anastasia isn't even my first name, although most people assume it is, and it is such big a part of my life now. In case you were wondering, My name is Holly & Anastasia is my middle name - I'm not being shady haha. 

These jeans are incredible aren't they? I got them from a new store called We Run This, they've got some really amazing pieces and it's all quite interesting as well. I love it - check them out if you want. The pairing of these high waisted jeans and the turtle neck is quite cool and creates quite a contrast. I've also fallen in love with heels & blue jeans; before we shot this outfit I wasn't loving it at all but after looking at some inspiration it felt better and I think it worked really well. 

Tonight...I've just been running drama lines and listening to Katie Melua - A wonderful voice. I can't wait to wake up on friday knowing that my drama exam is over. What a feeling that will be...

Love X
