gin in tea cups & leaves on the lawn, violence in dole queues & the pale thin girl behind the checkout,

just remembered about a vintage fair that's happening in a week or so, only a quid to get in so i might go along see if i can find anything nice :)

which also reminded me about 'freshmans' this vintage store i haven't been in for so long, i'll have to go.
& maybe if i find something i can make some outfits & steer the blog in a more 'fashion' direction again lol, i love my music too much i get distracted :)

post soon

broken glass. it's just like glitter, isn't it ?

''yes, it was riveting. despite everything, you knew there was goodness there. something to believe in. something which is good, pure and untainted by anything.''
  • pete doherty on meeting carl barat.



pete & carl = love

i've noticed i'm posting less & less about fashion, more about what's running through my mind.

what if punk never happened ?

I'm taking you with me to see another time,
A place you could only have dreamed in your mind,
An alternative reality situated just outside of Clapham,
So strap yourself in,
Cos where we're going you don't need roads,
To get to where punk never happened.


There's a lesson to be learned, one that I will take home,
When I return to my normal reality zone,
Punk rock has the power to change the world,
It lies in every single punk rock boy and girl,

So shine your light so bright that all can see,
Take pride in being whoever the fuck you want to be,
Throw your fist in the air in solidarity,
And shout ''Viva la punk, just one life, anarchy''

ceramic is the new paper ;)


i know i love my starbucks, but every time i get one i'm always thinking ''hmm.. another paper cup..''

so now i want one of these :) so i can use it again and again.. love it.


it's cute & environmentally friendly .. also good for your back pocket (apparently you get money off at starbucks if you use your own cup.. not sure though)

we were pretty pleased with it :)

bright eyes blue denim, bright eyes blue denim..

i love nicole richie's denim jacket, here you can see her wearing it with three different outfits.. which goes to show that one jacket can be used over and over, and look completely different everytime :)


get nicole's jacket here:
bit pricey for me though lol, so i'll either be checking out the charity shops or seeing if i can dig my old one out :)

red.

''And I can't do this by myself
All of these problems, they're all in your head
And I can't be somebody else
You took something perfect
And painted it red''

well my hair wasn't perfect by any means but i dyed it red.. it just kinda tinted it really cause my hair wasn't light enough to start with but i like it :) you can't see it too well in the pic though..

went to hollister yesterday, i could easily spend all day in there lol i love it .. also went to topshop and got a jumper in the sale- half price woo! only £15, love a bargin

very bad picture of me with my new hair and new jumper:

i know i haven't posted in a while, i will soon :)
god knows where beth's got to with her posts though lol.

so it's summer, not that you'd know it.
seriously, in summer i want sun, fun, friends, bbq's, time to relax :) but nope, i'm home, it's raining outside, i'm so bored lol.
one good thing that's come out of my boredom is i've been to the gym twice this week (!), although i hate exercise it's actually not that bad.. although that could have something to do with these three guys that have been there both times ;) if that's not motivation i don't know what is haha.

and there's hollister opening near me tomorrow too (yay!). so me & rach are gonna go and check it out, already been on the website seeing what i want..


anyone fancy sending me some money haha ?

brazilets.

brazilets are a 200 year old accessory from brazil, it is believed that they grant wishes to all that wear them, when the material wears down and breaks off, then your wish will come true.


worth a try yeah ? :)

beth x

so we thought that if we wanted people to follow our blog, it'd make sense that you knew a little about us,
but since none of us are the types to talk about ourselves, we're doing it for eachother :)
so prepare to learn a bit about Beth ..


i first met Beth at secondary school four years ago, and she hasn't managed to get rid of me yet ;)
i love her to bits, everyone does.
She's 15. a great friend, laidback/easy going, funny, pretty, stylish, thoughtful & obsessed with friends :) you think someone like this would be really big headed right ? nope, she's so modest it's untrue.. when i told her i as writing about her today she said ''try & make out i'm a bit cooler than the geek i am haha''.
she's not a geek though lol, she loves music, fashion, dance, books, magazines, films. & i don't know why she's friends with me really.

we've got quite a lot in common; similar tastes in music, tv, humour & fashion.. which is mainly why we set up this blog together, because we love putting together different clothes for different looks. (i think the style advisor at topshop gets annoyed that we have to try on almost everything in the shop.. more than once)

bet you love her already, yeah ?
i know i do :) x

me & beth, (she's on the right) x

festival :)

firstly, sorry we haven't posted for soo long x things have been a little hectic with school ending friday and having to tie up loose ends with coursework :(

soo.. it's summer & musical festivals are a big event ! the music is the most important thing, but wearing somehting adaptable to this unpredictable weather is definately up there.



Take tips from Alexa Chung, Lily Cole, Pixie Geldof & Nicole Richie for your festival style.



take shorts & a top for your staple pieces, also take jeans in case the weather turns bad & a jacket & also a pair of boots/wellies , which look great over skinny jeans or with shorts and will protect you from the mud if it rains.

if you'll be staying in a tent, do you hair in a messy style (see 'bedhead' post) and take grips and bobbles and dry shampoo to tidy it up.

i'll post more soon :)

p.s. i loved paolo nutini - last request at the iTunes festival :)

sat in the cafe by the cracker factory..

Your past-times, consisted of the strange
And twisted and deranged
And I love that little game you had called
Crying lightning
And how you like to aggravate the ice-cream man on rainy afternoons


video

i'm in love with arctic monkeys new song crying lightning & hope they tour some more really soon :)
give it a listen it's so worth it

bedhead


no need to spend hours tryinig to get the 'just-rolled-out-of-bed' look. it's called that for a reason :) so help it live up to it's name and get this effortless style :)

-after washing your hair towel dry it & put it into loose plaits
-if your hair is quite frizzy use a serum or smoothing balm before you plait your hair
-leave in over night
-when you take the plaits out the next morning, run your fingers through you hair
-if you want use wax/gel/hairspray to pick out certain waves for a more textured look


if your not happy with your look (but i bet you will be!) throw in plaits anywhere you need to, or put it up into a messy bun with plaits either side or around the top.



good luck & have fun
