Fashion Shoot For Street Meets Style

I took quite a lot of pictures for my new blog. This picture was one of my favorites because I like the way that not the whole outfit was shown, and that you can’t see the messy garden! (jokes ๐Ÿ™‚ )

I like how you can imagine that I am not in a garden and that I could be somewhere in town looking at a lamp post instead of a washing line. You can really let your thoughts run wild even when the picture is portraying something completely different.

Why don’t you experiment with your camera and see what you can come up with. It could be a picture of you and your cat,car or whatever, but just try to make it look like it’s not actually a cat or a car. Make it look like it’s something completely different if you are up to the challenge.

Once you have taken your pictures, please send them to me at streetmeetsstyle@hotmail.com and explain what it is that you have taken the picture of, what it could look like, and what you are wearing in the picture. Also state which shops you got your clothing from and how much each item cost.

Thank you and I can’t wait to see your pictures. The ones that I think are the best will be shown exclusively on my new blog. Thank you and happy reading! From Nadine

I’m Back With The Greatest Idea

I have decided that I am still going to post as much as I can on this blog seeing as I have spent so much time trying to grow it, I can’t quit on you guys now!

I am going to move the fashion and beauty section unto my new blog http://www.streetmeetsstyle.wordpress.com, and all the rest will stay on this blog. I might remove the arts and crafts section from here too, as I need time to dedicate to my studies, and I’m not really making anything at the moment.

I hope you don’t mind and enjoy reading.

From Nadine ๐Ÿ™‚

Street meets Style

My new blog is called streetmeetsstyle.wordpress.com
You will have to give me about a month before the website goes live.

Please spread the news and if you have anything that you would like to talk to me about or any ideas for fashion and beauty posts, please let me know via Facebook or twitter ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks

PS. please remember that it will take at least a month to kick off, so please remember to mention that when you are spreading the word ๐Ÿ˜‰ thanks

A Break Dedicated To Studies

I’m sooo sorry everyone, but Iย  am going to be taking a break from A Unique World.

Yes I enjoy blogging about soo many different topics, but I just can’t keep up at the moment.

For some of you that don’t know, I am studying fashion, and I think that it would be better and easier for me if I pursued that as a blog as well as a career.

I will miss talking to you guys, but I am going to be setting up a new blog exclusively for fashion and beauty.

If you have any clothes or beauty products that you would like me to show on my new blog with an exclusive interview on a bit about you, then please contact me either through Facebook or twitter, and I will email back with more details.

Thank you for all of your support. Believe me, you haven’t seen (well in your case heard or read) the last of me yet!!

Miss you all, and I will put up the name of the new site for all those that loved the fashion and beauty section that I posted on here, so you can follow. Please tell everyone you know about the site when I set it up, and I might feature you on the site!!

Good bye, and Happy Reading!!, from your dear friend, Nadine ๐Ÿ˜€

Sue Cheng From Slim Kicker.com

Hey everyone!!

I wanted to do a special post for a very kind lady called Sue Cheng.

She is the owner of a website called Slim Kicker.

This website is very fun and very handy for those people who are struggling to lose weight, and find it more as a chore and not a reachable goal.

Slim Kicker turns loosing weight into a game where you can upload how much weight you have lost, and earn points for the amount that you lose.

I really recommend that you try it. Please leave your thoughts in the comment box below so that I can tell Sue what you all thought and where she can improve ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for your help, from Nadine ๐Ÿ™‚

PS:Take your body to the next level!! If you join, you can join me in my challenge, not eating snacks after dinner! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I Was Thinking About…

Motivation.

I had to do my maths assessment today at College. As we got in, the teacher assessing us said that we had to get 40 marks out of 60 to pass, and on passing we would be able to take maths lessons for the year before doing the exam. A lot of us thought that this is what we should do and we should try our very best to get 40 or even 60 in the assessment.

Just as everyone was getting themselves prepared, the teacher said that the majority of last year maths students failed their GCSE. This is because the extra homework for the maths was so hard and soo much on top of all the homework that they are getting already for the things that they actually wanted to do. Also we would have to dedicate 3hrs a week of our time to do maths. He said that if anyone wanted to leave/give up now, they was aloud to walk out because it’s not essential.

Quite a few people left. I was quite upset at the fact that he had told us this before our challenge had even started.

I tried to encourage as much people as I could to just try and do the assessment. It’s only for a year so we should just get it over and done with.

After that I had pattern cutting and it was soooo hard. I was really struggling and had to give myself a pet talk to work and stop dwelling on my weaknesses. (I’m sure everyone talks to themselves…right?ย  right?

Anyway, I managed to get the work done, and it turned out alright.. so far.

What I’m trying to say is that sometimes you are going to come to a point when no one can help you, but you. There might not be anyone there to help you and you will have to be the one to get yourself out of the situation you’re in. Especially at college, I am going to be responsible for my learning. But all the new information is just trying to find somewhere to rest. I know it’s going to hurt, but it will be useful in the end.

Try your best at everything you do, and DON’T GIVE UP!!! You are responsible for you, so please make it a good one! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’ll be fine and it will get easier over time ๐Ÿ™‚

Edit On Instagram

Hi Everyone!

I really wanted to recommend using instagram to edit all your special pictures that you want to remember.

I have found it so helpful to “fix” all the pictures that I find quite special, like the one above.

I hope that you will use it. It is very useful for you to see the way other people take photos of things. I use it to get photography tips and inspiration.

Keep inspired and happy reading!! From Nadine

A Big Thanks And Some F&Q’s

Hi, I’d like to thank everyone for all the comments that you are sending me.

I have noticed that quite a few comments are coming up saying that when they go on to the website, it comes up in black and white. I have tried going on to the site from various computers, and I haven’t had that problem at all. I will have to have a look at that for you all.

I just want to say that I am going to be going to college 3 days a week, and I finish quite late. I am going to do the best that I can to post a few things when I can. It is quite difficult due to my circumstances, but come the holidays, and I will be inseparable from my favorite readers!

Another question that comes up quite a lot is how did I do this site? Well, I don’t really know how too answer that because a few readers have asked me to change the layout and the look of this site. I have been looking and experimenting with different themes, but at the moment this theme is working for me. I think that to have a successful look to your blog, you have to find a theme that you are comfortable with and best suits the type of posts that you are going to be doing. There are a few themes on WordPress that won’t allow me to put a certain sized picture on and some themes won’t support all the widgets I want etc. It’s best to choose one that will allow your site to function the best.

Also layout and background is key to a good looking site. If you have bright bold colours for your background and white writing, it’s just not going to work. You have to be sensible with the colours that you are going to choose to make sure that people can read it, and to make sure that it doesn’t take the readers focus away from the content.

Have an interesting layout of where you want to put all your widgets. WordPress will provide you with headers, footers, and other columns for you to choose from in the Widgets menu. You can decide which widget you want where and how many widgets you want to be shown on your site.

When you are proud with the way the site looks, then it will show. If a handful of your readers don’t like it as much, you can either make adjustments. But if the majority like it, and you love it, then there is no need to change.

I hope this answered your questions. I would like to email you all, but for the amount of requests I have had, it is quite difficult.

I think I am going to make an FAQ Page where you can ask me questions, and I will type put the answers on that page. It is easier for me that way. If you do want me to email you, please be prepared to wait at least 2 weeks before I email, as I don’t go on the computer frequently anymore. I will do my best to get round to all of you.

Have a lovely evening, and I hope to speak to you all tomorrow :), Happy reading! From Nadine
