Canada,eh?

I know I said I'd be more committed to my space on the internet - so here we go...
This is an assortment of pictures that I took whilst in Canada - some substantially more tourist-y than others.





























I swear that soon I will unveil some sort of breathtaking post solely to do with fashion/art because this is supposed to be a fashion blog.

Summer Breeze

Hey guys,long time no blog.
Just thought I'd let you know that I'm not completely neglecting this blog , I've just been a little preoccupied with the summer holidays and all.
Also , I'm going to start posting more regularly so expect a ton of new interviews , ramblings about music , photographs ,arty farty waffle and even some outfit posts!
So... a very brief round up of my summer:

I dyed half my hair purple....

....which turned green/grey

I went to Canada with my family  which was really amazing 
( expect photography based posts)

I went to Blackpool Pleasure beach with one of my best friends , Catherine:


I went to a Marina Abramovic exhibition in London and I cannot begin to describe the surreality of the whole experience ( I'll be writing a full post on this)

I gave myself several henna tattoos:

Me and my friends went as The Reservoir Dogs for a fancy dress party - I was Mr Pink.

I went to Scotland to visit my family :

Be speaking to you soon(ish)

The Artist is Present


I recently watched the documentary about Marina Abramovic's exhibition ; The Artist is Present.
It was breathtaking.I cannot even begin to imagine how spectacular it would have been to see the exhibition in real life.
 Marina sat at a table motionless and new people took the chair opposite her a conversation between eyes began.The emotion that she could convey with only her eyes was quite extraordinary , bringing many gallery visitors to tears.I can't explain her performance art with much justice and I am sure that I only got a flavour of the intensity from the documentary rather than sitting opposite Marina herself, but with that said I still thought it was amazing.






The person who appeared to make the most impact sitting opposite Marina was her ex-partner and fellow performance artist ,Ulay :he was the only person for which she stretched her hands out to.This received a warm eruption of applause.

The Artist is Present is available to stream on Netflix , I would strongly recommend watching it!James Franco and Bjork sit opposite Marina so if you're fans of either of those people then there is even more reason to watch it.
Just a quick post to let you know I haven't completely abandoned my blog.

Two Today!!!

Two years ago today I created this blog.Two years.
There are literally so many things that I've learned through this blog ; about a ton of great designers and labels - even through other bloggers I've found out about so many amazing movies and directors and bands and musicians and photographers and artists.
I've also learnt that I suck at coming up with good/interesting/catchy names for blogs.What is "A Shopaholic's Vision" even supposed to mean-stupid 13 year old me.
I was reading a couple of the first posts that I wrote and they are so embarrassing , I considered deleting them but then I remembered that that those posts were as much a part of this blog as my latest few.If you want to laugh me , go ahead , the posts are still available in my archives.
I vividly remember feeling like a fashion expert when I first worked out what A/W and S/S meant.
I think my blog has changed so much - even since last year ,I'm kind of more interested in movies and music than fashion specifically. I'm still and probably always will be intrigued by fashion ,as a whole ,but the industry never really stops to breathe for a second and appreciate the art and beauty that surrounds it - in fact that might even be what I like about it.
The thing that I love about clothes is that you can wear art. ..whether that be in a subtle(or not so subtle) way ,you can express yourself to the world.It's fun dressing differently every day , you don't have to stick to a particular genre of fashion .It's kind of like being in a movie , being a character and showing that by your clothes and that I think, is really amazing.
Unfortunately for the 2nd anniversary of my regretfully named blog , I don't have anything particularly exciting to share with you because I should really be revising for my science exams.
But , here are a bunch of relatively recent pictures I've taken in various places :











Thanks for sticking with me for these past two years!
