My first ever ever post.

It's pretty intimidating writing my first post, I know nobody is going to see it and so I guess I'm just speaking to myself, but either way here it is.
I guess I should start my saying a little bit about myself. I'm Lisa, i'm 21 and I live in Somerset. I'm a Photography and textiles student and my biggest dream is to move to London and study fashion styling. This is why I have finally got my act together and started this blog, we've all got to start somewhere :)
One of my best friends Charlotte is doing really well with her blog (stepintomycloset, if you haven't seen it then you really should check it out) and I guess she has given me the inspiration to sort mine out.
I was stuck for so long thinking about what to name my blog and finally settled on "fashion is my beau" because I am a "single gal'" who seems to get done over by every man who comes into my life. Fashion doesn't do that, it doesn't forget to call you, or start flirting with one of your friends in front of you. It's a constant. It's forever thinking of new ways to reinvent yourself and I thank it for that.
This is one of my current favourite outfits, I love everything and anything Tartan and waited 4 grueling weeks for my scarf to arrive in the post (it's from a chinese ebay shop). My oversized blazer (from Newlook) is a my  spring uniform. Spring is well on its way and I can't justify wrapping up in my fur coat anymore, it's just too damn warm. I love my cut off wellies also, I bought them back in January whilst on a weekend away in Amsterdam (celebrating my 21st in style) I can't remember the name of the shop, but I do remember it was a gorgeous (but incredibly small) vintage shop in the Jordaan district. Amsterdam is the best city I have EVER been too, it's so beautiful and efficient and the people are incredibly friendly. The culture fantastic as well, but that's another story all together ;)

I guess that's all I have to say for now. This is all so new to me and I hope I can get my head around it quickly.
Thanks for reading my rambles.
