Another year on and it seems like yesterday that I was writing the post titled '16'. But one year later, I've just read it and wow did I sound enthusiastic about becoming 16. Going into the seventeenth year of my existence I can't say I'm more enthused but I can perhaps say that I have a clearer vision of what I want to do and who I want to be in this hazy world.

born out of anxiety: Maison De Choup

A subject I have very rarely discussed on my blog, if ever, is mental health. It doesn't mean that it's not an area I don't want to talk about, but with posts on ethical fashion and politics, mental health just isn't an topic I feel perhaps educated enough in to discuss. Mental health and fashion however, is something incredibly cool and powerful and I would never pass up the opportunity to bestow something truly great on my blog.

Kaffe Fassett exhibition: is fashion is a form of art?

In the midst of a world orientated by innovative design and a constant feeling of change; art is something that, arguably, stands the test of time. Whilst there are differing opinions on what is good art, in fact we most probably all have a different favourite piece of art or artist and that is the beauty of it. There are constantly new pieces and artists that are new and upcoming. Sounds pretty similar to fashion right? It's a constant that we all buy into, there's a yearning for art in all of us.

transitioning summer pieces for autumn

It's October in England, the leaves are swiftly gravitating towards to ground and the temperature is slowly and steadily dropping - Autumn is well under way. It's in this transitional period, not quite summer not quite winter, that we can find ourselves buying surplus clothing in order to make up for the changing seasons. You leave the house in a coat and by lunchtime you're in a t-shirt. Like I said, that's England for you. In order to avoid this surplus buying there are plenty of ways that you can make use of your summer clothes in the colder seasons.

easy ways that you can give back

Somehow October has crept up and autumn has emerged out of the woodworks, where has the time gone? I think because I now post once a week (which has resulted in a much happier Eleanor) the monthly turnover of posts just whip by. I can no longer say that I was only holiday last month and the school year is well underway with a lotta work but I am loving college so far, I've even managed to use my frees productively?! Although this post isn't an update on how college life is treating me, it's about inspiring you to give back to causes that are close to your heart.

the best books I've read this summer

Blissfully unaware of what is about how time consuming starting sixth form, I thought I would upload my favorite reads from the summer. If you've been following my Instagram stories (@eleanorclaudie hit me up) then you'll probably have gathered that I read a lot this summer. From classic vintage reads to some holiday romances, ah Atwood and Orwell can't quite prize me away from a good ol' chick flick book, I've read quite a bit. English Literature is possibly my favourite subject; have I spoken too soon? I mean we're two weeks into college and our class hasn't quite got into analysing the set texts yet so that could change but at the moment I'm absolutely loving it. Also now that I take the bus to college instead of walking to school like I used to it means I can read on the way to college (such a bonus if I don't have time in the evenings).
