What Fashion Means To Me

What Fashion Means To Me
Sunday, 8 April 2018

Today I thought I would talk about what fashion means to me. I would like to say my fashion sense is quite individual, it's not intensely similar to that many peoples. I never really know how to define my style either. Is there any word that can define me. Someone once said it's just "Saffy Style". Maybe I just range from every style, there isn't one word that can categorize me.

Fashion as cheesy as it sounds means everything to me. It's helped define me as a person but not only that has helped me grow as a person, made me more confident. I used to be the least confident person ever. If i'm wearing an outfit I really like, I feel on top of the world. I walk the streets with my headphones in and strut, because weirdly a funky outfit to me makes me happy. Sometimes I will wear a particular outfit and it will make me really excited.

Every now and then I do feel down about my style. I feel like no ones interested because it's not relatable enough. It makes me feel like my blog doesn't mean much to people, but maybe the important thing is it means a lot to me. I'm never gonna change my fashion because it doesn't relate to a particular market. I am me, no one can change that. I like being individual. 

This outfit probably has given me the biggest confidence boost ever. I've never had people react to my style like this ever. I had so many comments and scenarios all when I was in town. When people you don't know compliment you, its honestly the best feeling ever. Its so crazy I had people taking pictures of me because they thought I looked "cool". For someone who has 0 confidence and puts themselves down all the time, it's nice to have this kinda affect. I thought I would write a few things that people said to me in this post as I think its funny, but mainly because I want something to look back at.

The many comments on Sapphire Needhams Red Outfit
( Some are said to my face, some are just said behind my back but very obviously)

  • Who is she supposed to be Lady Gaga 
  • You're like the female version of Christmas ( Not sure what female version of Christmas means haha)
  • You look amazing, you're gonna be famous one day
  • A man drove past very slowly and his window went down slowly with him shouting out "I like your style, not enough red though"
  • Have you seen that girls outfit, mad!
  • You look fantastic
  • Nice trousers, Fancy as fuck


those are just a few I noted down, Shannon told me I should start noting it down as it would be cool to put in this post. 

Anyway, I hope you all had an amazing weekend.
Speak soon xxx

Writers Block // OOTD : March 26th 2018

Writers Block // OOTD : March 26th 2018

Honestly, I have the worst case of writers block, i'm always looking forward to having something to write about but today I have no idea. Hopefully something will spring to my mind for my next post. It just means this is more of an inspiration post rather then a chatty post.

I must say though this zebra print blazer is incredible, as soon as I saw it I immediately needed to make it mine. It has a matching skirt too but unfortunately I had to return it, it just wouldn't budge past my butt, I have a weird figure. Do you ever get where a skirt fits perfectly everywhere else but round your waist it has that big annoying gaping bit at the top. It's not the most fun thing ever, so if you don't have that problem lucky you ;) . On the bright side, i'm feeling this outfit , although all I wear at the moment is vinyl, sorry for the same old style hehe.

I hope you all have a fabulous week and 
Monday has treated you okay xxx

Being Independent

Being Independent
Tuesday, 20 March 2018
Read post

In case you’re reading this and you’re not in the loop, I dropped out of university. It’s weird being back home. I’ve never moved out of with my parents until September, I kinda dipped into the pool of adulthood. In my head I thought “this is not gonna go down well” . I didn’t think I was ready to move out, mainly because I’m helpless at cooking and wasn’t keen on the idea of living on pasta and pizza for the rest of my uni days. Surprisingly, I did okay. Often I would have to ask my flat mates very dumb questions. Do you ever get panicky when you’re around people that are really good at something then you start to become worse at what your doing as you feel so much pressure to do well? Well, that’s how I felt with cooking. Honestly I felt like everyone were chefs in my flat. Most university students live off beans. I had people with slow cookers, the whole shebang. It’s cool, at least I had people to talk to if I needed help, that’s all that mattered. I’m going on a tangent here, I do love to ramble, sorry. 

So with university, if you read my blog you will know how much I hated it. But shock horror, there is little things I do miss. That ladies and gentlemen is being independent. You may have guessed already by the title. Besides that I thought I wouldn’t have manage well, however sometimes it’s good to be thrown in the deep end, but hey I survived 3 months, I can’t of been doing that bad. I think this is a main issue with a lot of people my age but with parents every time you leave the house, you get the 21 questions of where you’re going, who you meeting up with. I mean it’s obviously nice as it shows they care, but I just don’t like having to explain what I am doing every time I leave the house. I liked being able to leave the flat whenever I want and not be questioned. If i'm ever really emotional it’s nice to go for a walk to clear my mind, but I can’t really do that at home. As I will get someone confused where I am going. I know I’m making it a bigger thing then it actually is, and it’s not that big of a deal that people ask where you’re going, but honestly I really miss the independence. I also find that being back home I’m a lot lazier, when it comes to cleaning and washing. At uni I would usually keep on top of that and wouldn’t let things get too bad. I would also actually go to the shop. Now that I’m home if it comes to going co op I’m like naaaaah. Unless I’m already out. At uni I would go to the shop At least once a day. I developed a slight comfort food obsession with cherry bakewells, we don’t talk about that. To be honest this is another very minor thing but I miss being able to stay in your pj's all day and not have anyone tell you to get dressed. It’s nice having lazy days sometimes. 

My point is I dipped into the world of adulthood and came back home and sometime it’s makes you feel like a child again, I liked being independent. But that’s not to say I hate it, I love my parents and grateful to live at home, there’s still better points to living at home too. There’s always gonna be pros and cons to everything. I just dream one day I live in Brighton and possibly have Georgia Nicholson’s house in Angus thongs. I plan to have lots and lots of plants when I eventually move out. Which probably won’t be for a very long time, considering how expensive it is to live in Brighton and with my ahem current financial situation not being greaaaat.

I hope everyone is having a fab week so far,

Speak Soon xxx

Happy International Women's Day!

Happy International Women's Day!

Happy International women's day to all you amazing woman out there. I want you to look in the mirror and tell yourself you're a spicy senorita that don't need no man. The world is surrounded with so many badass woman and i'm so thankful to have met so many of them in my life. Celebrate and empower all the ladies out there, never drag any other girl down, we must slay together, fight for equality and try to put an end to sexism. 

You should never have to define wearing your clothes or makeup to anyone. I do not dress the way I do or wear makeup to impress people. I do it for me and to add confidence for myself. Makeup is like art, some people wear it and some don't. You should be able to show a bit of cleavage or have your skirt a little shorter and not be seen as " you want it". Honestly how are people still offended by nipples or a little bit of skin. WE ARE NO OBJECT, let us be us. Don't let people make you afraid to be yourself. Wear what the hell you want and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.  What I love about being female is the female toilet chats. I always seem to make friends in the toilet and I love how we always empower each other and complement each individuals style or appearance. It makes you feel so confident and we must continue to do it. However it shouldn't stop in the toilets. If you see a girl slaying in the street, tell her, I guarantee it will make her day. 

Women should never have to rely on men for anything, you do not need a man to make you happy, you should never rely on them for anything. Be you.

I also made a girl power playlist, if you would like some music to listen to and basically dance around to.

Stop Being Afraid Of The Future

Stop Being Afraid Of The Future

Photography: Gina Dreka 

I've got to that point in my life where I don't know what i'm doing, i'm so afraid of the future and whether I will be doing something I enjoy. I recently dropped out of uni, this was a big decision for me, I have moments where I think, was this definitely the right decision? I think a lot of people in my shoes may feel the same, I also think it's common to be afraid of the future. I don't really want to live like this though, I want to feel excited and keep working for what I enjoy. My problem always is how do I get there? where do I start ? The last few days have been pretty chill for me and i've had time to think about life a bit more. The more time i've spent alone has made me crave doing creative projects. You know what, I miss filmmaking. Ever since I was younger that was my dream then it kinda evolved to photography. Don't get me wrong I still love photography, but i've been watching loads of music videos and just been feeling so inspired lately. I'm so desperate to get to that stage and start doing projects again. I think a lot of the time I appreciate the art direction behind a film, I love how it is visually and the idea behind it.

I'm particularly feeling inspired by Petra Collins and Nadia Lee Cohen. Petra directed Fetish by Selena Gomez. I just love her use of lighting, they always look so beautiful. Nadia directed After The Storm by Kali Uchis. Her films are unique and often heavily influenced by American cinema. These girls have influenced me so much at the moment and motivated me to get my shit together and start working hard. You're never gonna get anywhere if you don't work for it. That's my promise I need to tell myself.

If you're feeling uninspired at the moment and your afraid of where you're gonna be in the future. STOP RIGHT NOW. Live in the moment and stop being afraid of the future, you will eventually figure it out. I still haven't got it figured out but i'm going to try to stop worrying about that and just do what I enjoy now.
