T.M.I. Tag !

Hi all, revision's... not happening. Instead if you've checked out my Twitter (sorry for the spamming!) I'm planning a photoshoot for my GCSE Film Coursework and yes you will get a glimpse of the 'Behind the Scenes' shots... as lets be honest... they rock! Seeing models in hair and make-up for hours creates cool photos surprisingly. (A sneaky advert for my Instagram account @Kheiraaa for these images before they're posted here!). Anyways, the extravagent Ellie from LittleEllieMae tagged me for the 'T.M.I Tag' originating from FleurDeForce, this is a cool tag about everything personal about a blogger- allowing you to know me better! If you wish... lol
1: What are you wearing? 
My ravishing Hello Kitty PJ's which I've probably had for 3 years, no we're not trampy- I just still fit into them and cba to buy a new pair. Plus fluffy slipper socks, snazzy.
2: Ever been in love? 
Hmm. I think from an outsider's perspective, it probably looks like I've liked someone ALOT, but I've never felt it.  The picture below sums it up really.
3: Ever had a terrible breakup? 
Yes with my Club Penguin boyfriend, kinda awkward seeing him with someone else at the pizza restaurant. 
4: How tall are you? 
5″4, stil unsure why I've been told I should model at such a dwarf height. 
5: How much do you weigh? 
Bit personal but it's under 7 stone.
6: Any tattoos? 
Nope, not really into pain I can see.  We'll see what happens in the future. 
7: Any piercings? 
Just my ear lobes.
8: OTP? 
Hmm. Alessandra Ambrosio & her beau, Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher (imagine their babies though!), Ross & Rachel, Romeo & Juliet, Marilyn & Arthur Miller.
9: Favorite Show?
 I'm more of an Internet person because of the ad breaks (they wonder why they lose so many people to the Internet!) but I love: Friends, Two & a Half Men, DANCE MOMS! Have to admit I'll sit and watch anything and talk the whole way through, shouting at the TV talking about how fake everything is (mainly Dance Moms).
10: Favorite bands? 
I'm not really into bands (fangirls don't eat me). There's not really anyone which I constantly like EVERYONE of their songs, so still holding out for someone. Kinda getting into Disclosure- but why is music so synthesized? It's like one sentence then the song full of computerised sound effects. 
11: Something you miss? 
My Mum not bringing up my age every 5 minutes to reiterate my childishness when I make one mistake, then still treating me like I'm 5. 
12: Favorite song? 
'The Way You Make Me Feel' still waiting for a modern song with staying power.
13: How old are you? 
16 since September- which is depressing. 
14: Zodiac sign? 
15: Quality you look for in a partner? Someone who makes me smile and the conversation 'bounces' across us. Apparently Gemini's are my perfect match, which is awkward because I've been linked to a few :/
16: Favorite Quote?
17: Favorite actor? Jack Nicholson acting wise, James Franco looks wise :o
18: Favorite color? Blue. 
19: Loud music or soft? 
Loud and bouncey but I also jam into headache relief music at times.
20: Where do you go when you’re sad? 
My room and surround myself with stupidly, ridiculous Tumblr gifs.
21: How long does it take you to shower? 
Around 15 minutes, but I'll get really 'Oh darn it' and start cleaning it for ages beforehand. 
22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 
Around 10 minutes, I'm not really one of those 'Full face of makeup to school' people. Infact the night before I'll say 'Oh look nice for school tomorrow, wake up early and everything'. Then the next morning it's more like 'Screw that where's the waffles'. Well not with waffles but you get the gist. 
23: Ever been in a physical fight? 
No! Only play fighting with my little brother if he pushes me, I push him onto the bed or something. 
24: Turn on? 
Not gonna lie but I'm into the whole tanned skin, brown hair, green eyes kinda boy. Mitchel from Ja'Mie: Diary of a Private School Girl text me. 
25: Turn off? 
After B.O... kinda someone who isn't nice to be around like if they're racist, discriminative, etc in anyway. Or if someone just talks about themself a lot (can't really talk, because I blog my opinions lol). You know when you're with someone if it's going to work out, give it honestly 20 minutes- you know. 
26: The reason I joined Blogger? 
Well I heard about Poppy Dinsey's story and what blogging was 2 years ago and just thought I'd see what it was about and to try a new after school hobby.
27: Fears? 
Giving up on my dreams and just regretting my life.
28: Last thing that made you cry? 
Erm, I was told I had to be at the hospital for a reason today... connect the dots. 
29: Last time you said you loved someone? 
Tonight at the hospital. God this is bad timing. 
30: Meaning behind your Blogger Name?
I kinda went online for a 'fashion blog name generator' and the word Array stuck. So I fitted it with 'O'Style' because it sounded a bit more vintage and fitted what I blogged about. O' also sounds Irish and I'm part Irish :) 
31: Last book you read? 
Apart from a revision guide... The Drowning by Rachel Ward and Tape by Steve Camden.
32: The book you’re currently reading? 
Revision guides eh, how interesting am I?
33: Last show you watched? 
Dance Moms, season 3 and (spoiler alert) Chloe's been suspended. How scripted aha. 
34: Last person you talked to? 
My sister, she just walked in from work aha. 
35: The relationship between you and the person you last texted? 
Erm, I was hired to do some work. Other than that, nothing really. Not really a texter, more a Facebook chatter. 
36: Favorite food? 
Pasta, Pizza- basically Italian food. Or CHINESE. Omg sweet and sour chicken get in my belly. 
37: Place you want to visit? 
EVERYWHERE. Specially Miami, New York, Hawaii, MALDIVES. 
38: Last place you were?
 In my kitchen (no surprise) or at school and hospital. 
39: Do you have a crush? 
Nope unless male models are allowed. Petition for school to be filled with more James Franco lookalikes please. 
40: Last time you kissed someone? 
Guessing my Mum doesn't count? Probably in primary school when kiss chase was allowed to be played without feeling embarassed. I'm kinda awaiting going to one of those big American parties and watching a 7 minutes in heaven game. If I was chosen to actually go into the closet, I'd sit on my phone or something. How awkward.
41: Last time you were insulted? 
Today, but it was just banter.
42: Favourite flavour of sweet? 
Cola bottles or coconut mushrooms #OldSkool
43: What instruments do you play?
 None which I kinda regret because piano always seemed so cool. I could only do basic piano in school- with basic sheet music and a labelled keyboard.
44: Favourite piece of jewellery? 
My watch probably as it's the only thing piece of jewellery I get the most use out of. 
45: Last sport you played?
A long Charleston style dance from the movie Chicago yesterday! If dance is even classed as a sport now?
46: Last song you sang? 
Happy by Pharrel Williams. 
47: Favourite chat up line? 
'You turn my floppy disc into hard drive'
48: Have you ever used it? 
Not a chance. 
49: Last time you hung out with anyone? 
Erm. Apart from school, probs last weekend at London Fashion Week.
50: Who should answer these questions next? An open ish tag, although I'll tag these bloggers:

Jamie & Abbie

Tolly Dolly Posh 

TAG you're it!

Shopping, fashion week and inflatable people...

Shopping, fashion week inflatable people...

Hopefully that title has intrigued you because I need to do an 'UPDATE' post of everything that has happened recently on my style travels... Busy doesn't even describe in the slightest everything that's happened recently... hey ho fashion is chaotic, life is chaotic. Therefore fashion blogger life is very chaotic. I say staring at my pigsty of a room where the clothes are scattered everywhere... 

On the 9th of February (yes look how delayed I am, terrible) I set sail to Pure London, a buyer's event which allows bloggers to come and scout new fashion brands and generally get lost in the fashion on offer at London's Olympia. A huge warehouse full to the brim of new brands- heaven! Plus Pizza Express was there :) Yes fashion people do eat. The food stands probably had the longest queues there to be honest. The hall was so huge it was easy to get lost and there was a lot to see. I thought it was kinda funny on my behalf because firstly my Mum couldn't come, so I was a teenager, penniless, at a buyer's shopping event. I was just doing my thing checking out the rails (like everyone else) and suddenly everyone started showing me the price tags of the clothes and asking 'Do you own a boutique?' Hahah. No just a blogger- possibly with a wardrobe the size of a boutique but not a budget the size of a boutique. Stall holders also kept standing right behind me as I browsed- yes like I would totally steal something. Definitely put me off blogging about the brands to be honest. But that's what happens at markets doesn't it? They're right at your back trying to get a sale (sorry if it sounds offensive but it's kinda true). Kinda sad as the brands had nice clothes and at the time I was looking for an outfit for London Fashion Week- which would've been music to their ears- exposure at Fashion Week... However, I did arrive home with heavy shopping bags... full of leaflets. Including a DKNY bag which my Mother's eyes glowed at.

London Fashion Week. No not the actual one- I'm not that famous... yet. Although I was tempted to stop at Somerset House to do some celeb-spotting. I did see Kate Moss... 's exhibition at TATE Intimate! Which was one of the most beautiful works I've seen in my short life. Wow, beyond wow. Think Kate Moss but with a pop-art burst of pinks and blues and you get the Russel Marsh exhibition at TATE Intimate. The journey was a small studio filled of 10 canvases (which were retailing at over £3K!) which chronologically showed Kate's modelling highlights and narrated her life highlights. Including her lows and woes. It was interesting to just see the bursts of colour amongst the plain, white walls of the studio. It quite sad to see Kate hadn't actually been to her own exhibition. However I was informed that she is aware of it and has signed pictures for the auction. Kinda sad though- it would've been cool to see Kate sign the guestbook...

Coolest table I've ever seen!

Moving on, blogger event celebrating handbags and street style- I'm there! It was literally a room of impeccably dressed people chatting, gazing at handbags and meeting the editor of Glamour magazine! The editor spoke about street style in particular and it was interesting as it didn't really go into much depth as we all thought it would do. She brung up the fact that nowadays everyone cares about not just the clothes on show- but the clothes even show assistants are wearing nowadays. She also brung up the question is the internet destroying print magazines? Perhaps time will tell and a Channel 4 documentary should be made! I thought more about the place of models in the street style craze. A model's uniform is normally plain black skinny jeans and t-shirts but with the street style craze- are models frowned upon if they don street style? Or will the uniform change? Might have to do an investigation on this in the summer hols. The handbags were lush but given the lavish hotel reception they were using- they weren't cheap... Shame I was actually around alot of cool street style to photograph- but iPhones are awful to work with. I had my phone off THE WHOLE DAY and somehow lost 50% charge. Plus it would've been awkward to ask people for a photo. Anywho, look at these Pinterest worthy piccies (pin if you wish!)

Anywho, to the actual shows I was. Standing outside in the freezing cold- my mucus thanks you dearly fashion week... I reached the inside of the shows. At this point my iPhone battery was beyond dead and I was tempted to actually complain to Apple- but with no phone I was a little lost. Curse you modern, pretty popular phones! Anyway I saw the Mercendez Benz graduate catwalk and the Bernard Chandran shows- courtesy of Fashion Scout. I noticed a lot of mixes with leather as a future trend and the clothes aren't too shapely as they typically are... perhaps to hide excess Christmas pounds. I liked the complimentary colours used in the shows and navy is set to be the new black.

That's all I've gathered on my travels. I apologise for the lack of photos- need to ration iPhone battery charge it seems (has anyone else experienced this or is it just me?). I would've posted my street style- but I might have to stage that for you to see :)

So I've recently taken up Instagram (when my iPhone charge is in tact) and have been eagerly stalking supermodels style, like Magdalena above and just wanted to put it out there that I'm signed up! I have a personal account (so occasional selfie) but if this account goes well I'll create a blog one to visually show the posts more. My account is @Kheiraaa and enjoy photos like the above one!

Peace, Louboutins and Love.

P.S: Check out this street style for you. One of the LFW highlights I can assure you! Loving Pandemonia's street style!

We Love #Fashion

We Love Fashion (if you don't you probably shouldn't be reading this blog tbh)

So yeah, I haven't got old of this #StreetStyle look yet! This is why I'd wear something like this to London Fashion Week... Yes, the big LFW which us bloggers have been trying to get tickets to for months now. Some are victorious, some will have to be revealed later (whilst I browse Topshop for clothing which I know I can't afford). I'm wearing a Isabel Marant for H&M coat and it's lush :) Perfect for LFW, as it's London we're in- coats are a necessity. It's long, thin and I imagine Burberry will be covering something similar. I've already seen New Look covering this coat at a 1/3 of the price... The bag is from Iconemesis and is red hot! It just ties the look in together, a bold statement bag is everything with style. The colour red can symbolise a lot of things but possible the red here symbolises desire, drive and passion- which is what fashion is all about.

Here, I think the site is all about, celebrating fashion from different types of the nation and bringing the collective together- in a fun way :)

Valentines Day 2014

Love is... what is it?
Mellow Mummy Love Is Blog Carnival

Love is the feeling when you can't wait for the day to start, 
Love is when you feel the butterflies in your veins,
Love is when you forget about those pains,
Love is when you forget your bleeding heart,

Love is that feeling that lifts you up when you're down,
Love is when you can't say a name without flushing,
Love is when you deny you're totally crushing,
In those eyes is where you constantly drown,

On this Valentines Day,
Convey those cherished feelings of joy,
But try not to annoy,
Those soloists in the cafe.

A bit of poetry, a little bit soppy- but who isn't soppy on Valentines Day! I'm taking part in my first 's blog carnival and I hope you check out the other posts in the carnival!
Personally, I'm not really sure what is love as I've never really experienced it, romantically. Is love an emotion or a feeling?

Or is it just an excuse to wear lush, red and pink dresses? Whilst eating pizza and crying at Rom Com's? Yep, probably. Speaking of pink dresses and lush outfits- does this take your fancy?
