OOTD: Raised On The Radio

It's not altogether often you'll come across a style related post on the Salty Sea Blog. But this place is my scrapbook after all & a place for fun, experimentation and an abundance of goofing about. I guess I never take myself 'seriously' enough to make a fashion post, nor do I consider myself an authority on fashion. I've always thought fashion posts to be serious business, and me far too silly.'but that's not true at all (the part about fashion posts being serious I mean, I'm plenty silly). 
Living in that limbo of empty time between having finished my classes, just waiting for my grades and moving back home, I've got more free time than I know what to do with. I'll be honest, I don't necessarily know what to do with it either. I'm not one for being stuck indoors and with the beautiful weather, I've wandered the canals, botanical gardens and rivers in the last two weeks more than I have done all year. Muggy grey weather has found us again (Because this is Britain after all) and with it comes the rain. So today, I decided I wanted to experiment, have some fun and put together a black and white/retro style shoot inspired by the 50's era in Britain.

The Nasty Truths of Student Renting: Non-Pintrestworthy Bedrooms & Frankenstein Homes

Sometimes you might get lucky with a student let. You may find a private landlord, a nice, dry and airy home with hot water and a garden, and it may even be the thing of instagram dreams. Your rent may even be affordable. You, are one fortunate individual. Sadly, our house is not that house. House? Did I say house? sorry, what I meant was - Jumble of misshapen, damp rooms that are secretly a  draughty greenhouse cultivating mould and dry rot disguised as a ground floor flat. 
Today, I'm going to tell you the sorry tale of our student letting experiences.

Wildflowers on the Helford River

“It's lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky, up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made, or only just happened- Jim he allowed they was made, but I allowed they happened; I judged it would have took too long to make so many.” 
― Mark TwainThe Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

I live somewhat impulsively, 
I wouldn't be able to exist any other way.
