The Monthly Playlist : January

I thought I'd make this a regular feature on my blog - seeing as though I really bloody love listening to music... I have BBC6 Music on in the background all day/night, I adore spending Sundays record shopping, and pretty much scroll though Spotify most nights finding new music to get into. 

Also, there are a few of you that do occasionally ask what music I have in videos etc so I thought this would be a nice little chance for us to share what we're currently listening to! Please also feel free to pop any recommendations down and let me know what you're enjoying atm.

"I think we're just gonna to have to be secretly in love with each other and leave it at that, Richie"

I have been a Wes Anderson enthusiast for quite some time, I fell in love with his distinctive cinematography and visuals, dream colour palettes and quirky characters when I first watched The Life Aquatic. (Excellent soundtrack, too). 

My favourite film of his is, of course, The Royal Tenenbaums. (If you haven't seen it, go and watch it immediately). So when SHRIMPS (another dreamy yet usually unattainable brand I'm obsessed with), designed a jumper dedicated to the heartbreaking love story between Margot and Ritchie, I did a little squeal, pondered for a while, and decided to welcome another jumper to my knitwear collection. 

Absolutely beautiful and also suitably versatile with a variety of outfits - it is my mission to style my new jumper in as many ways as possible to justify spending more than a month's rent on one item of clothing…  

On this occasion I have worn it loosely tucked into my new flared jeans from Topshop (a style which is very new to me, but I am totally digging at the moment). They can be a little unflattering to be honest, but they're super comfy and make me feel like Farrah Fawcett on a skateboard. 

On my feet are another new addition to my wardrobe - my pink Adidas Gazelles. Which I feel compliment the Wes inspired colour palette of this look beautifully. I'm v.much into pink at the moment, particularly when paired with teal and mint green.

Hello 2018!

I hope you have all had a lovely 1st week of a brand new year!
Mine has been a slower starter - after a much needed Christmas hibernation and a 3 day NYE hangover (thanks late-twenties)... I needed to edge into this week a little slower and more caffeinated than usual.

But I have had a full week to reflect on last year and really think deeply on what I want this new year to bring - instead of making 20 resolutions I usually break within the first three weeks.

I have decided to take a break from YouTube and focus on my blog. This may be a year long, or a month. As Blogging is a hobby alongside a full time job, I found my passion of filmmaking and editing to become somewhat tedious - editing at 3am and getting up for work after 4 hours sleep, never 100% happy with the result and posting content I wasn't proud of.

So until I find myself in a setting I am comfortable to make films in, with the tools and equipment I am saving up for, I would prefer to wait until I make videos again.

I hope to now focus on my Blog and Instagram - which I was amazed to have seen flourish in 2017! I was very fortunate to work with some of my favourite brands such as Topshop and Joanie, and also meet lots of lovely new people along the way.

This past week I have concentrated on an achievable Blog plan, to one I will be excited and happy to create and post content twice a week.

A lot of you have asked for more outfit posts so I will be focusing on these whilst also writing about music, beauty and lifestyle.

Please do let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like to see featured on my Blog and also feel welcome to ask any questions or leave any comments as I do love a natter with you!
I'm so excited for the next 12 months and I hope 2018 brings love and happiness for us all.

Love, H x
