Where do i even start?! I think a good place would be hello, hi, how y'all doing? You guys are looking at a UAL Graduate! HAHA. Yes thats right, you girl is done with uni. So please understand my absence. It has been a while but a good time away well spent. I also recently went to Barcelona, which i am still yet to edit the images and video.  (Don't judge me, I'm working on my procrastination.)

I thought this would be a great opportunity to pour out my feelings and get talking to you guys who are just entering the uni world and those who are leaving it. My feelings towards parting from something thats taken up majority of my childhood/teenage life have been all over the place. One thing I've learnt about myself is that i take comfort in being in control and i can honestly say right now, I'm adjusting to knowing that everything that will come my way as of now, is of course through more hard work but also just LETTING GO. Im working on letting life be because it is no longer structured around the schedule and cycle of education that we are all so familiar with. 

I know God has amazing things lined up for me, i just have to be open to them. A classic trait of a Leo (YES ITS MY BIRTHDAY MONTH!), always wanting to be in control.
Director is better than speed. So remember, as long as you have a vision thats all you need. Don't rush.

Another new chapter of my life is the new platform and brand i started that was also my final project at university. Girls Do Succeed  is based around female sports and womens street/sportswear. Ive been working on it for almost a year, connecting, shooting and working with girls all over London and parts of the UK that play or take part in a sport. I curated and produced a documentary and series of these girls and i plan to make many more. The brand side is basically my answer to the lack of womenswear brands that have a real meaning behind it. I want to create my own version of sportswear for the tomboy's like myself. I won't go too much into it as there is a lot planned that you guys will see.  The first batch of t-shirts are practically soled out but I'm working on new pieces, get familiar with GDSBRAND!

But, other than that, I'm back on my vintage gems hunt. And I'm really on it now, like really on it. Ive always kept up with Grubby Mitts but was always the late comer to new stock as pieces sell FAST, so ive never gotten my hands on anything until now! When i saw this DKNY top i was surprised that it was still available, but then seeing that it was only in XS, it all made sense. Lucky for me, I'm small enough to fit in it so i guess it was sitting there just for me. 

I had recently gotten these bottoms as well from ASOS marketplace by the brand WWYF and thought it would go perfectly with the top. 

I honestly believe the older i get the less ill actually dress like a lady. Ill never turn my back on some good vintage sportswear and a fresh pair of kicks.
