Hey I just to want to say thank you for following my blog on bloglovin' I really appreciate my followers. So thank you!

I tend to wear a lot of black

I started off with owning bright coloured clothing and now when I look in my wardrobe I noticed that black is starting to take over as I have many black tops, leotards, leggings and shoes. I can't complain as black goes with anything but the only problem is, it does not make you stand out. Instead it reflects on my mood- sad or depressed. I hide behind the colour as it makes me look thin.
How do you feel about the colour black? do you tend to wear it a lot too? I am sure everyone will have different opinions on black clothing. Maybe it will make others feel more comfortable and confident or maybe you are the opposite and hide yourself behind black clothing.

I have always been interested in finding out how colour affects personality and mood, so I did some research on the internet. I gathered some interesting information from some sites which are referenced below so you can research further on the colours you are interested in.

Red- From experience, I believe red draws a lot of attention. I would not recommend anyone to wear this colour if they lack self confidence but do wear if you want to show you are a confident person.

Pink- Pink is known as a "girly colour". It is also a very calming colour and ideal for a date.

Orange- Orange is quite similar to red as it is bright and draws attention. It is a colour full of energy but if you can pull it off, you will feel confident wearing this fun, bright colour.

Yellow- Just like the sun, this colour brings you happiness and a smile to your face. So this is perfect to wear on a bad day to cheer you up.

Green- The earthy colour green, makes you feel calm and is perfect to wear if you want to feel relaxed.

Blue- Blue is a peaceful calming colour but is not the ideal colour to wear if you are sad.

Purple- Purple is a colour that makes you stand out, so stay away from his colour if you want to blend in with everyone.

I am interesting in hearing about your opinions, do the colour clothes you wear affect your mood?

Do you wear colours to reflect your mood? and what colours do you stay away from?

Take a look at the colours you wear and see if it affects your mood.

Day 10- Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

This post should be interesting to write about, as I love music. When I was younger, I would find so much time to search for the newest music but as I grew older, I found more important things to worry about.

Anyway I am rambling on. The songs I listen to when I am happy, sad, bored, hyped, mad are as follows:

When I am happy, I listen to:
Kat Deluna-Dance Bailalo (Dance remix)

When I am sad, I listen to: James Horner-Hym to the sea

J Sea

When I am bored, I listen to:

Aggro Santos featuring Kimberly Wyatt-Candy

When I am hyped, I listen to:
Baby Lores y Insurrecto- La mujer del Pelotero
When I am mad, I listen to: anything

Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days

To be honest, I do not think there is anything I'm proud of, the only thing I can think of is spending more time with my family and doing more activities together. It has helped me realise I am not as close to my family as I should be and I am also realising how important it is to get along with each other as life is too short.

New gear for Uni

I had a super long day today, buying clothes for Uni. I brought my mom with me because she is a good judge of what suits me and what does not suit my image.

She gave me advice on how to wear the jeans below, she suggested they are worn best with heels. She also selected clothing that would fit me as I am not tall, I am 5 foot 0.

My mother has great taste and chose most of the clothes, I only chose the heels as I am obsessed with heels I can hardly walk in.

Tell me what you think the items.

Black flats for Uni my mother chose them.
I fell in love with these heels and had to buy them!!
(leather black shorts) The shorts my mom has always wanted me to buy.

(New jeans) My mom chose these, they are so cute, I can wear them with heels.

I found this skirt in the new look sale

Items from New Look and Next.

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why


I know July is nearly over so instead I will talk about the goal I want to achieve for this summer holiday. Before I start my studies in september, I want to go on holiday. I think everyone deserves a break! I have not been abroad for a couple of years now and I want a break from my normal routine so for once in my life I will feel relaxed and refreshed to go back to Uni.

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

Hey guys, I am sorry I am a day behind. I have kinda lost interest in this 30 day challenge. I found it interesting at first but now it just seems to be dragging.

Anyway back on topic, 'A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you'. I can not provide a picture as it is false images, so instead I provided a graphic of the name. I am not a religous person, I do not have a religion but Yeshua has made a big impact on my life. Also my family have made a big impact on my life but they will not allow me to use their pictures on my blog.

New Look Items

The items in the picture are from New Look. I brought a clutch and a pair of heels to match my black dress I will be wearing for my friend's 20th Birthday.

Yes I will be wearing all black, I know it is depressing but lately I have been buying a lot of black and hiding from all the bright colours.

Do you wear a lot of black clothing too?

Toy Story 3D

sorry I published this post late... as you can see it has been in my drafts for 4 days. I apologise for the lack of posts. I have so many things to blog about but I have not had the time but I will catch up soon-keep checking back for more new posts.

Anyway last weekend I took my baby brother to the cinema to watch toy story 3D! It was the first time his been to the cinemas. His only 3 years of age and was well excited to go and watch Toy Story. The movie was was amazing.

I had never watched a movie in 3D before, I enjoyed it, I wish I could watch everything on TV in 3D. I think I enjoyed it more than him, as he would not keep his 3D glasses on and kept trying to catch the attention of a little girl around his age group sitting next to him. Oh boys... easily distracted.

I was the opposite, I did not want to miss the most important parts. Suprising enough, when we got home, I told everyone how he got on in the cinema and he told everyone what happened in the story and named all the main characters putting me to shame.

Day 06- Favorite super hero and why

To be honest, I really don't have a favorite super hero. I was not a fan of any from a young age, I was more into fairy tales.

One of the movies I remember watching was Superman but I think I preferred Batman because I found some of the characters amusing.

However, If I had to choose a favorite super hero, it would have to be Spiderman.
The reason for this is only because I watched the movie recently and I understood it well.

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you’ve been to

London 2008!

It was an amazing experience. If I had the chance to go back again, I would!
I went there for a college trip to watch the Lion King in the theatre. We stayed in the Royal National hotel for 3 and a half days. I think London is beautiful and I do want to visit it again in the future.

Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn't have.


Ok, I bet you all are thinking, what is wrong with laughing? It is healthy and good for your body.
Yes, I am aware of this but I have a habit of laughing when there is nothing to laugh at. I tend to laugh when I am nervous and meeting new people, etc. I feel laughing is the only way I can relax and feel comfortable around others but I suppose it must be all down to lack of confidence.

Day 03-A picture of you and your friends

Me and my best friend Gemma

Multi-coloured dress

This is just a quick post as I don't have much time to blog right now. This is just a quick update of what I wore today.

I am tired after spending hours of shopping, my feet are aching. After this post, I will go and rest and put my feet up. I wanted to take more pictures of the dress but my camera died.

I kept everything simply as I was wearing a bold dress. I wore the dress with flip flops, hair in a side fringe and bun and wore a black handbag (I wanted the dress to stand out).

Day 02- The meaning behind your Blogger name


Ok my blogger name must sound really random but it is actually divided by 2 nicknames. The name Fashion-rocks was taken from my polyvore username but I did not want my blog to be just called 'fashion-rocks' as I don't just blog about fashion! I wanted to add something a bit more personal which was 'I dream to model'. Modeling has always been a dream but it is not something I would chase as it is a very hard business to get into. Many people I know personally, always tell me that I should do modeling after they see my pictures online.

It is something I would enjoy doing as a career. I would like getting my hair and make-up done and wearing fun outfits. I suppose I should treat myself to a makeover for a day and have a photoshoot done, sure would be fun and something I could treasure and look back on when I grow old!

Grey Eyes, Pink Lips && heels that you can't walk in!

At the moment, I am in love with white and grey eyeshadow. It makes my eyes appear bigger and awake. I applied white eyeshadow on my eyelids and grey on the outer crease. I then outlined my eyes with liquid liner and for the finishing touches, I applied mascara to my lashes, added abit of blusher on the roses of my cheeks and applied pink lipgloss to my lips.

I decided to have a mini photoshoot with my camera and wanted to take some full length pictures of my outfit I wore with this make-up look.


How do you make your eyes appear bigger? and what is your favorite eye shadow colour/colours?

DIY ripped shorts and Accessories!

Hey guys,

I have fallen in love with the ripped denim look. I have been searching everywhere for the perfect ripped denim distressed shorts but I haven't had luck finding shorts that fit loosely on me and have that rough teared look. So instead I brought a plain pair of shorts which hang loose on me and I used scissors and a cheese grater to cut rips and distress the denim.

The Look I Wanted To Achieve

My DIY Shorts- My version

i only made small rips in the shorts as they will expand when i wash them but I like them like this. The rips look bigger when worn.
the back of the shorts.
Shorts-Next £12.

Purple lips and eye make-up

A Chocolate purple kinda colour nail varnish

Finally got my acrylics off after spending hours soaking them for hours in aceton nail polish remover. Sadly enough, when I went to boots, they did not have any aceton on the shelf:\ so i had to use nail polish remover instead and it was hell to get the false nails off.

So now I am left with ugly,damaged nails, hopefully in months to come, they will grow out. I don't have to look at the state of them anymore. I painted my nails a chocoalte-purple kinda colour, it's a wierd colour and I don't know what to call it :\
But I love it. :)
