♥CHANGE!, Favourite Bloggers and more...♥

Hey Darlings!!
I was just sitting at the computer, doing my daily dose of pointless browsing at 12.50 am, and suddenly, I just remembered how long it's been since I posted. Oh how long it's been since I've been here?!! So long that I couldn't even remember my password *oops*! Anyhow,as the title says, CHANGE!. This is the main reason I haven't been on here, or on fashiolista for soo long! The amount of change that has gone on in my life in these couple of months has been CRAZY!!
-Gone to India
-Quit my college course
-Did two internships
-Finally decided to apply for a photography course
-Got pretty sick
-Started working for a *scam* job without knowing
And so much more! At least it hasn't been boring right?

Anyway, I've decided to catch up on some blogging cos it's strangely theraputic and definitely a different and calm change of scenery. Soo, getting to the main point of this blog, I just wanted to mention the few bloggers/vloggers I've been checking out for the last couple of months and even though they aren't many, they're blogs are constantly inspiring me, making me laugh or just stare in awe thinking,'That's Soo Cool!!' I do hope though in the next few months I start reading more blogs because each blog is so unique and brings something different to the table.
To start of, it's the one and only GABIFRESH!
I am absolutely in LOVE with her! She's a fashion blogger who constantly challenges the classic rules of fashion, regardless of your body shape. This is one of the things that I love about her, especially during those days where I just look at my clothes and think, 'What was I thinking when buying these clothes?!' She's definitely encouraged me to be more adventurous with what I wear, and not to be afraid of taking risks when it comes to fashion, the only negative is that I know my wardrobe will never be as cool as hers in a million years! But oh well, that's that I guess :( Also, the amazing thing about her is she's actually turned her blog into her job, which is pretty cool I think cos not a lot of people get to have a job that they are passionate about. Also, she has an amazing beach bod! Totally check out her bikini pics on her blog. The picture above isn't as good as I'd like it to be so I put her link below if any of you guys wanna check her out (which I strongly recommend) and maybe even follow her!

The second one just has to be meek-n-mild! Her real name is Shirley and she's a.. wait for it... Mathematician!! (shocking right?!)
I think it's safe to say I'm hooked on her blog! I love the way she styles her outfits and the amazing thing is that most of her pieces come from affordable highstreet shops which makes a broke student like me happy! She just has that unique 'something' to her that can create a wonderful masterpiece out of something so common. I also love her, 'less is more' rule that you can see through her daily outfits. I've also put her link below for anyone to check out her blog and even follow her :)

Last but not least is the wonderful Patricia!(or BritPop Princess to some)
She's mainly a fashion vlogger who also gives advice on issues in life everyone is bound to go through within their lifetime. She's recently extended to doing live events on Kondoot about every week which is amazing! You also get to meet her husband Mike(they just got hitched a few months ago) who is Hilarious! plus they look soo adorable together! She definitely makes me laugh like crazy everytime I watch her videos and I'm always in love (and a little jealous) of the outfits she posts up, and not to mention she is gorgeous!! I have no idea how she mangages blogging, marriage, live events AND doing a demanding job that's longer than the usual'9-5' job. She's a beautiful, inspirational comic who gives plenty of useful advice on life and fashion. I definitely recommend you guys to check out her videos and be prepared for a laugh! I've also put her link below for you guys to check her out :)

So that's it guys! I hope you guys check out these lovely bloggers :) I'm off shooting tomorrow and maybe going to a concert so definitely need to go and catch up on some beauty sleep for tomorrow. If you have any blogger recommendations, including yourselves of course ;) please feel free to drop a comment below and also, who are your favourite bloggers??

 I'm just gonna leave you guys with a quote that I think is an essential for everyone and that's also helped me a lot I guess :) Goodnight and God bless darlings. Kisses xx

♥Long Time No Speak♥

Hey Darlings!!
Apologies again for not blogging for what seems to be a lifetime!! I hope you guys have been fine :)
Anyway, I was kinda wondering what I should blog about as my I thought, might aswell just kind of tell you guys about what's happening and whatnot :)
I think about two or three weeks ago I all over suddenly thought of trying out ebay to shop for items I'm currently craving and I was not dissapointed!! I love it soo much's like an online vintage/thrift shop in my opinion and for people like me who don't exactly favour the idea of walking down the street and seeing a million girls with the same fashion pieces like you...well ebay may just be that perfect, unique shop you've always been looking for. I especially LOVE bidding!! I originally never thought I would but there's that special thrill you get from bidding, it's like winning a race which feels awesome! Also, the prices are crazy cheap!! Honestly! I'm gonna post the items I've bought from ebay in the last two weeks and you guys will not believe the prices I got them for!
However, as I've gotten more and more obsessed and into ebay, I've come to learn that there is definitely do's and don'ts of shopping on ebay because if you're not careful, you can end up being ripped off or getting items that you didn't exactly bargain for. Firstly I wanna say I haven't experienced personally the don'ts of ebay *Thank God!* but the way I've got to learn this list of don'ts is through miscellaneous things. So,rule numero uno for me is if you are gonna buy a used item, definitely go for the ones with lots of pictures showcasing the item and ones with a detailed description of the item, how many times it's been worn, whether or not it has any damage, especially if it's a piece of clothing, check if it comes from a pet and smoke free home because that's something I forgot to do with this red blazer I bought and although it looks fabulous, it kinda smells of cigarette smoke which isn't the kind of scent you want to have on your clothing.
Ok, before I tell y'all numero dos, I have to emphasize how hard it is for me to do this haha as it has been my winning tactic when bidding for items that especially have a lot of bidders bidding on goes my secret that I'm about to expose to the world lol...When you want to bid on an item that you really want but, at the same time there's like 10 or more bidders bidding on it, put your bid in when there's atleast 20 to 30 seconds left before the end of the bid. The reason this works for me is that by the time you put in your bid, your opposition bidders don't have time to increase their bids, you end up winning(which feels amazing!) and also you end up paying less money that you would've if you put you're bid in earlier on. Word of warning when trying this out though; firstly, make sure that you're already logged in cos if you haven't, the process is lengthened and you end up not having enough time to place your bid. Secondly, make sure you don't get as overconfident as I did and place your bid 10 seconds to go because if you wait this long to put in your bid, you find out that someone else has followed the proper technique of putting in the bid 25 seconds before the end and therefore you end up not having time to place your bid and end up losing(which sucks!)
I've got loads of other tips on do's and don'ts but I've just noticed how long this post is haha and I really don't wanna bore you guys anymore but if you wanna know more you can always just ask :) or google it lol. The last tip of the day is beware! Most of the items being sold have a 'No Returns' policy so bid on items you are absolutely sure of because you don't have the option of returning it if you don't like it.
Here are the pictures of the two blazers I've bought on ebay and the red one is the one I was saying about smelling of ciggy smoke lol but they both fit perfectly and I'll try to upload pictures of me wearing them soon, but if I don't, please don't be mad :(
Anyway, Good night guys (it's 10:45pm at the moment here), God bless and happy bidding!! :)

Hey Guys!!
Firstly, I have to say I'm soooo sorry for not blogging for ages!! I mean when I started this blog I had the perfect little idea in my head where I would blog daily on things like fashion, photography, food, college,life and so on and so forth but as you can see now, that idea has gone down the drain :( I honestly don't even know where to begin; everything was going soo perfectly and then BAM! everything just went into ruins. It's like at one time I was soo sure of myself and I was the most confident I've ever been and then everything just turned to a point that I couldn't even be sure of my own name. For instance, when college started I thought I knew it was what I wanted to do but its like I just woke up yesterday and realised that I'm not happy in college and with what I'm doing because my heart wasn't into it which then lead me into not being happy and also I realised that the only reason I was in college is because I want something secure but to be honest if someone just emailed me with an opportunity to do something related to my.dreams ,I would drop college soo quickly you wouldn't believe it. The reason ice decided to write this post is basically because I feel like I have no one else who will give me advice without being biased and also I feel like I'm stuck alone in the island of confusion and no one would understand me so I figured I might aswell blog about it. For example I have bo firm idea of what my dream is but I know I have a dream(I kniw. That didn't make any sense at all). Anyway I feel like if I don't stop now I will end up rambling on far beyond what I've already done so please please please preety please if anyone has any insight to this extremely random but important post, please comment underneath.
Hope all of you out there had an amazing and blessed Christmas and new year. Lots of Love, Emily xx
