daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: week in photos, fashion intern, glossybox june 2012

Follow me on Instagram at 'winyeemichelle' for more daily photos.
Percy Piglets · Poring over beautiful catwalk looks for issue two of Aesthetic · An exciting delivery, review and style challenge coming soon! · Last day in the fashion cupboard brought lots of laughs with Yilmaz - holla vocab challenge · My June Glossybox arrived! · An old photograph of Daddy and I · Last day lunch break pose-a-thon · The best part of any magazine internship · 河粉 (flat rice noodles) in chicken broth with spring onion and an egg - ideal! · An interesting horoscope.

All finished with my internship at InStyle now, and feeling optimistic about new beginnings. I'm hoping that next week will give me a chance to snap away with my camera as opposed to my phone: spending the majority of my time in a fashion cupboard drooling over pre-release clothes and luxury leather means that I'm quite restricted with what I can share!

This week I've been experimenting a little more with my personal style. The fashion team at InStyle have some amazing style which has rubbed off a little on me! I'm all but ready to give up on shorts, skirts and flats at the moment. I wore one of my favourite outfits on Wednesday, but didn't quite get a chance to photograph the look (and I spilt coffee down the shirt...!) so I'll probably photograph it when I next wear the outfit. Instead on Wednesday, I posted a little Ways to Wear installment focusing on neons and brights for the 'summer'. I've also been writing and subbing copy for the next issue of Aesthetic Magazine!

In other news, I'm currently floating on Cloud Nine - on Thursday I received my provisional dissertation result and only went and nabbed a First! I've been celebrating with a weekend of spring-cleaning and playing around with the bag of beauty goodies that InStyle gifted me with on Friday - I guess there are a few perks to unpaid work! How have you been spending the weekend? 

- this week in five:
