Lomography Shoot

Yesterday I did another shoot with my best friends Devon for my friend Laura. She does A Level photography at the college I attend. The theme of the shoot was that you never fully know a person and they can always hide their feelings/emotions/keep secrets from you.
Laura used a lomography camera that takes film.

The divide is created by the camera itself as it takes two separate photos and put them together to create one.





The photo was edited into black and white after it had been scanned into the computer.







Hat: Kangol (vintage)
Jumper: Charity Shop
High Waisted Jeggings: Primark
Lips: Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint in Carry On Cherry (600)


I hope you enjoyed: leave any questions/requests below x

Dungarees and Creepers

The year 13's at my college are having a general studies exam this morning so I don't have to be at college until 2pm so I have plenty of time to get ready.
My camera isn't charged and I wanted to get the blog post up as soon as possible so I've just used my webcam, so I apologise for the poor quality.
My necklace was a gift I bought myself in Egypt last summer.

My dungarees are from a friend who doesn't wear them but they were originally from Primark.
The sheer tights: also from Primark.

White T-shirt, Bowler hat and over the knee socks: Marks&Spencer

Creepers: Office


As I had a lot of time to do my make up I chose to do winged eyeliner and pinky lips. As there is a lot going on in the outfit I thought it would be best to steer away from bold lips; however, I was considering a red lip.

(The blonde streaks in my hair are soon to be turquoise)

Thank you for visiting :-)

Quick Introduction

Hey well basically I'm Jessica, I'm 16 and I live in the north west of England.
I go to college and I study French, German, law, English literature and English language.
This is my icon:

I don't have many hobbies but I love to write and I am slowly getting back into arts, craft and collage.
In the future I would love to either go to Leeds University or down south somewhere and study journalism and hopefully enter the world of fashion through journalism.

If you want to know anymore my Twitter profile would be a good place to start: @JessicaaHerd

Glitter Nail Polish

The new trend over A/W 2012 was glitter nail polish and it had been everywhere! All the brands from Ciate to BarryM have been making them. Well I found this brand (Technic) for only £1 in my local beauty store.


 I layered it over an opaque white nail polish to create this look:

It's not a huge brand but it is very cheap so I would definitely check it out!
