Neckerchiefs & (K)NeeHighs

Neckerchiefs & KneeHighs - Pale Aesthetic

I'm gonna start by saying that this is the worlds most comfy dress. It's literally just a massive oversized tee with a matching waist tie, and it has managed to shoot up to my most worn piece of clothing! I got it in a Large because I wanted it to be massive, but take note, it is already over sized so get your actually size because this is huge! I was gonna team with some cute heeled sandals but then weather happened, and it was cold so I chickened out.

SHOUT OUT TO NECKERCHIEFS for being my new obsession! Seriously predicting some strong western vibes this A/W and maybe a little bit of military too.

Fashion part over, lets talk being an adult. At what age would you consider someone grown up? Because I'm pretty sure I am fully grown and all that jazz. I mean I'm independent, got my London pad, buy just as much home ware as I do clothing, yet I can still manage to watch 5 seasons of an hour long tv show in a week. I'm currently toying with the idea of adding this to my CV, because it shows dedication right?  Or is it just me avoiding adult responsibly.

The Rebecca Minkoff Marble Bag

The Rebecca Minkoff Marble Bag

The Rebecca Minkoff Marble Bag

Say hello to my soulmate, her name is Rebecca. I've been obsessed with Rebeca Minkoff bags for a while now, specifically the marble print ones (shout out to my inner minimalist) and also this bag has already been glued to my side for about a month, I thought it was time for her formal introduction. 

This is as close as I am going to get to a 'designer' bag right now. I paid around £145 thanks to my good friend, which although is somewhere north of my usual spend on bags, I thought it was about time I had a little treat. I don't have much to say because pictures speak 1000 words, so I'm sure you can see her beauty without me personifying this bag any further!

If you've stopped by before, you know my obsession for designer bags runs deep. And although I would do several morally questionable things for a Celine or Chloe bag right now, I'm just going to have to settle for dupes of those two...(That may of been a hint at next weeks post, get your pom poms ready it's exciting.)

If you're a nosey little so and so, like I am, then you're probably curious what I carry around with my on the daily. Don't worry I covered that...

side note: I brought a cactus and its on steroids or something because it is out of control in size and now I don't know what to do with it? He didn't feature in the pictures above, because he's too beastly.

Step Into The 70s

So, I've had a little style revamp recently as mentioned in my previous post, meaning that yellow is my new best friend. If you did a shot for every piece of yellow clothing I've brought in the last month, I'd be carrying you home, slowly tripping up each other on the way.

On that rather teenage note, I actually wore this outfit out and about town recently for a night in Queens of Hoxton, something I don't do as much anymore, due to being old (22 is old right!?). And in all my years of hardcore university nights, I learnt a huge life lesson - that this night I chose to ignore - and I am going to share that with you today... If you can't walk in shoes, don't wear them out clubbing. If you could only see the bruise that these shoes are coving up on my knee! Don't get me wrong, I can rock heels with the best of them, but these do that annoying heel slipping out the shoe thing with every step, meaning my walk through Shoreditch landed me head over heels on the ground. Don't you worry, I stood right back up and took a bow.

Now that we've had a short laugh at my expense, I thought I would leave you on a more fashionable note... If you don't already own an A-line denim skirt; 1) Where have you been, and 2) Get one, they literally go with everything.

Tuesday Wishlist - 70's Vibes

ASOS Wishlist, 70's Vibes

So, I'm a minimal kinda gal, but recently I have been full blown embracing this 70's vibes. When a new stylish era hits the high street, I get a little bit too excited (Shout out to my 2013/14's 90's obsession!) and suddenly loose all sense of my previous style and reinvent myself. Why the hell not!? Fashion is all about having fun and there is nothing funner then rocking up to an event wearing something no one would ever expect you to wear. So for now, my monochrome is in remission, while the warm yellows and earthy oranges take centre stage in my wardrobe.

P.S. ASOS you are killing it right now! You know a stylist is good when you don't just want the one item you're looking at, you need the whole outfit, hence the reason these 3 WHOLE OUTFITS are on my wishlist! 

Shop My Wishlist! (Just don't buy the last size 10's, cheers!)

How To Start A Youtube Channel - From One Beginner To Another!

How To Start A Youtube Channel - Pale Aesthetic

So, I've been toying with the idea of starting a youtube channel for quite sometime now. I honestly watch Youtube more than I watch normal TV and it just looks like so much fun. I love how transparent it is, on blogs it's a little bit harder to get a true representation of somebody, they could model with the best of them but in real life they might not be the type of person you want to admire. Youtube however, gives you an insight into peoples world (Even through its edited and a faction of someones day) it give you a real grasp of what that persons like, what they find funny, and that's what I LOVE about it!  

I never ever imagined my channel would get off to such a good start. I mean I am almost at 1000 subscribers after just 3 videos! I thought I would have maximum 50 by this point! So, because of this, I wanted to 
share my personal tips for how to start your own youtube channel, from one beginner to another...

1) Have a Theme.

Before you start, decide what you want to be. Whether you want to showcase your music, do comedy sketches, get drunk in every video, play games, or be a beauty/fashion youtuber. There are so many options but you need to define yourself. This might sound restrictive, but when starting something new you need to know who you are targeting, in order to keep your first followers interested.

2) Talk Out Loud Everyday

When you first sit in front of a camera to film, the words might not come out. It took me so long to talk above a whisper because It just felt so unnatural. Start narrating the things you do, this doesn't have to be in front of someone, but maybe when you're putting on your make-up in the morning or choosing your outfit. Talk as if you are telling someone what you are doing, this sounds soooooo silly but it will make it feel more normal when you have to do it in front of a camera.

3) Personalise Your Thumbnails.

Every video needs a thumbnail, it makes it so much more attractive to click on then just a random screen grab from your video. The best channels I follow have a consistant look, with the same kind of image and font in every video. Try and decide this before you start otherwise you first videos will look dated very fast when they don't match your newer ones.

4) Be Part Of The Community 

So you're new to youtube, no one knows who you are, so you need to put yourself out there. It's all well and good posting a video, tweeting a link and posting it on Instagram, but theres a whole community already in youtube. Every time you watch a video leave a comment. This doesn't have to be an aggressive "COME SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL" just leave a something thoughtful about the video (these comments get interacted with the most) and sooner or later people will start to recognise your icon and click through.

5) Do Tags

Like I said before, no one knows who you are when you first start, so maybe don't do a super unique video because it won't be found. Instead start with Tags like 'What's In My Bag Tag' or 'The TMI Tag' these are things people regularly search for, so you are more likely to be discovered!

6) Just Film (It took me 5 videos to have to courage to upload my first) 

The hardest bit about starting a channel is have the courage to film. I can almost guarantee you that you will film your first video, take one look at it and go, "Nope I am not cut out for this". My biggest thing was not being able to watch myself on camera and focusing on all my imperfections (take this from a girl with a lisp) watching yourself is hard! Don't let that put you off, play around with lighting, camera angles, and just keep recording yourself, once you get past seeing yourself on camera, you will start to see the good things in your video, and ignore the bad, that honestly only you will notice.

I hope these tips helped all of you thinking of starting up a channel! They are honestly the things I have followed to kick off mine, and although they may seem small, they make all the difference. If you have any tips of your own, comment them down below! Check out my channel below by clicking on the images and subscribe because I am almost at 1000 subscribers! Ahhhhhh! :)

World's Cheesiest T-Shirt

Junk Food Top, SheInside, Pale Aesthetic

Today I have a little throwback for you all. I was recently scrolling through my camera and came across this little number, that I never post from my holiday to Barcelona back in May. So, I thought it would the perfect post to start August off with, because ya' know it's a t-shirt covered in junk food, in a stunning sunny location, what more do you want?!

Who else gets super sad coming across old holiday photos and then looking out the window and realising you're surrounded by miserable british weather? Honestly though, I hate change so I would never want to live anywhere but the here even if the rain ruins my hair on a daily basis.

I haven't got too much to say today, because life's a bit of a whirlwind right now, but if you click one of the icons under my profile picture, you might just discover one of the reasons my blogs been a bit quiet the past month ;)
