I have so many questions for you - it's overwhelming. I feel like I need someone like you as a mentor or to be your assistant or something. I really want to get into fashion blogging but I think the costs are going to be too high for me at the moment and I think people would love what I have to say but how would I even get them to find out about me. I'm just envious of your life right now.
The only way to do it is to do it, man.
What lens/es did James use for the recent shoot of the Kate Sylvester label? absolutely beautiful.
I think he used the 50mm f/1.4.
I went onto your blog to see what that anon was talking about and I am totally guilty of saying I can't afford things when what I really mean is: I suck at saving and I want to spend all of my excess money on food. Then again, when you're a student it can be different, if you're making no excess ca$h there are definitely a lot of things you can't afford. But I have to totally agree with #3, really cranks those afternoon naps to the next level!!
yo your number 2 low this week was not cool man. Not everyone earns as much money as you (not even saying you earn a ton of money). Just like, some people genuinely cannot afford things?? Maybe I misunderstood but I found it to be very dismissive of people who aren't in privileged positions like yourself.
You’re right - some people don’t earn as much as me and some people earn way more than me (I am on a part time salary so I’m sure a lot of people who work earn more than me). I’m sorry if you read it as dismissive because it wasn’t intentional.
I’m in a privileged position where my expenses are low and I am able to live comfortably. Don’t get me wrong - I am very lucky to be in the position I am.
I think it was more my frustration in response to people anonymously sending me messages complaining about what I spend my money on, or saying to me, ‘I wish I could get that sweater but I can’t afford it’ whilst buying drinks at a bar. It’s all relative. I can afford to buy clothes every season, but I can’t afford to do both that and spend money on cigarettes or a night out drinking with a taxi home, for example. I haven’t been to the dentist for YEARS AND YEARS. I have had credit card debt for almost two years. I moved home when I stopped working full time. I prioritise my spending differently.
But I agree with your point that some people genuinely cannot afford certain things - I definitely can’t afford everything and when I said ‘generally speaking’ I meant that in my experience with people I have heard this from, generally speaking it’s more of a not want to afford something which I think is fine because people spend their money on different shit. I should’ve been more clear with the generally speaking part.
What's the names of the models from the mean girls shoot? :)
Tessa from N Model Management and Zara from Clyne.
Do you get affected by how many comments or likes you get on a blogpost/social media link? I know they say I should write/do what I want but I find it hard not to seek validation from an audience.
Yes and no.
I mean yes in terms of a business sense, because I want to put up things that get a good response and things that people will like, but at the same time I don’t want to put up anything just for the likes - it’s still got to be something that is interesting to me personally.
I care a lot less than I used to, I think it’s because I’ve made the decision to blog and post less and I guess like anything, you lose interest in certain things over time.
can you do a post on sarahs tattoos? they're super badass
I mentioned this to her, she declined. Sorry.
Do you have an instagram account?
