About me

My names Gemma and I am in my third year of my fashion degree,

When I’m not studying I like to blog about fashion, beauty and lifestyle. Fashion is my passion, I’m often asked what my hobbies are and to be honest fashion is both my hobby and work (although I do like watersports, badminton, film, photography and baking to name a few other hobbies).

For me fashion is a chance to escape into another world and that’s the allure of fashion really. From an early age I have always loved shoes, simply slip into a pair and they can change the way you walk. I remember my first pair of real heels, my mum hated them, they were six-inch gold platforms and in hence sight they weren’t the perfect choice for a young teen but I felt like a sixties pop star in them.  But that’s what them shoes were to me – Escapism.

One fashion agenda which is going to grow in importance is sustainable fashion. People are becoming more savvy about where there clothes come from and where they will go after they have finished with them.  And I’m one of them. I’m not claiming to know everything about sustainable fashion but I am thirsty to learn. I set up this blog as I believe knowledge is for sharing.

I’m not perfect. I love fashion. I try to make conscience choices where I can.

  1. Hi Gemma!

    I’ve been watching your blog since I found you on IFB, and I love your attention to sustainable fashion. I also try to make conscience choices (although sometimes my willpower gives out). I wanted to let you know I’ve nominated you for a Liebster award, given to bloggers to raise awareness of their blogs. To accept, you pay it forward by nominating other bloggers. You can see how here: http://hellohandbag.blogspot.com/2013/08/liebster-award.html

    Keep it up!

    1. Thank you so much. It means a lot to me that you enjoy reading my blog enough to nominate it for an award. I’ve just clicked on the link and I am about to take the time to read it.
