I have come to realise how much I've abandoned writing my blog. When I first started writing Daughter of Leon I was 16. Every Saturday by best friend Dylan would come over and snap pictures of my latest outfits outside my bedroom to upload to Lookbook. Everything started to snowball. I was fortunate enough to be recognised by fellow bloggers at fashion week and even got stopped a few times shopping by my readers. I wrote for Teen Vogue, got scouted by Cosmopolitan and got voted into the worlds top 100 most influential bloggers. I'm forever grateful, yet very sorry that I may have let you down.
The truth is, I moved cities, went to uni, worked 4 jobs, got two internships, started my own online store, made new friends, lost some, dated a guy who ended up on Jools Holland and had a number 1 album, worked a total of 26 music festivals to try and find myself, graduated with a 2.1, decided to become a folk musician, got a full time job, impaled my hand on a fence
and found an really nice boyfriend, who in fact wasn't an idiot. Everything combined was a little distracting. But with a little help from Taylor Swift, Metallica and a shit load of tea and biscuits I've seemed to stay mentally stable, well... all in all.
With all that in mind, it's lead me to where I am now. Somehow being the editor and creator of an independent fashion photography magazine which is currently stocked in Japan. I guess I abandoned my title of a fashion blogger quite some time ago. In a field over saturated with a million talented style and lifestyle bloggers, I had to move forward with something more challenging.
For the 594 followers who stuck with me (hopefully you are still active) thank you. I am very excited to share with you my next steps as a fashion editor...

Hi guys, long time no posts! I've struggled a lot at the end of 2013 of what I actually want to do with myself. I'm finding myself in the very last few months of my fashion communication degree and have been lost in mountains of work with no outside inspiration.
My new years resolution is to find myself again, and to do things that make me more content with myself. I guess that was blogging, something I let it slip because of University and being in a long distance relationship. So here we are, my lovely readers who have somehow stuck with me and my blog although I have not posted, a new year and the beginning of a fresh new start.
The images I've posted is a preview to my final degree fashion project. I'm focusing on isolation and the process of being minimised in remote landscape. A love of mine is cold places, so I'm focusing more on Nordic landscapes such as Iceland. I'm also a bit of a geology nerd and been studying the changes of the Islands empty landscapes through volcanic activity.
