Live

In attempts to make my hair even more ginger i tried out the new Schwarzkopf live xxl colour in fiery copper. The good thing about them is that they are semi permanent so if it went hideously wrong it would just wash out within a few washes and my hair wouldn't be a horrible ginger mess. Your supposed to dye your hair blonde first for the colour to really make a pop, but i wasn't to keen on the idea cause my hair probably would have fallen out if i'd bleached it. Taking into consideration that i didn't bleach my hair first, i was really impressed with how the colour blended with my natural gingerness and enhanced the colour giving it a more toned look. If you haven't picked up on it yet, this is the first time i dyed my hair since i sprayed the front of it pink one summer when i was about 10. The dye was super easy to use, smelt good and the conditioner that comes with it worked wonders smoothing out my uncontrollable frizzy hair. After using live xxl its given me a huge push to try a permanent colour. I'm really in love with these two colours, especially the mango copper burst. What do you think?? Have you tried the new live xxl colours?? ! x

Egyptofunk

 Ever since i posted about the Alexander Wang neoprene jacket and dress and Balanciaga and Junn J, all i can think about is the Balenciaga Egyptofunk collections. Uggh the prints are just so amazing, Miliya Kato is just rocking it like a babe. Luckily i scoured ebay and managed to find a jumper with a copy image on it, but i still need to wait a bit before i can get it, hopefully its soon.

Tourne De Transmission

I introduce you to London based brand Tourne de Transmisson who have turned basic street wear, such as jumpers and track pants, into walking pieces of art. The line consists of monochromatic prints of nature that were originally inspired by vintage newspapers and slogans that  together create something unique and represent the relationship between word and image, as stated by the name tourne de transmission that translates into rotating transmission.

A/W 2012 (above) sees basics like t-shirts, shirts and track pants with whimsical images of forest and birds in flight whereas s/s 2013 (below) has introduced tailoring and subtle injects of colour.


I am love love love love love love love looooovvving this brand. The prints are so beautiful and the black and white gives them that real emphasis and shows the detail, just like an old black and white photograph, but still keeping them extremely wearable. My favourites are definitely all the pieces with the cloud prints, especially the track pants, as i personally think clouds are one of the most simplistic beautiful things that exist. I'm also loving the tree print jumper and the knee length shorts. Oh what i would give to be able to put my own touch on these by wearing them with a leather jacket.

New knit and backpack

                                                                             Jumper & Backpack - Primark, Maxi dress- old Primark

When i went shopping the other day i had a clear vision and solid shopping list of what i wanted. I walked into primark and it ticked off everything. First was knitwear. I wanted a new jumper that would inject a bit colour into my winter wardrobe, which is mostly black, and that i could wear with most things i owned. I found it in the form of this turquoise/teal coloured piece. Turquoise is one of my favourite colours, along with black and wearing it just seems to perk me up. I love the attention to detail of the uneven back and front and the slits at the side.

Next on my list was a new back pack. I have a leather and fur one that i got from Aldo whilst i was in Canada and wear with everything, but when im wearing a fur coat its a little bit of a fur overload. I really wanted a leather one and hey presto Primark hit the spot again. Its the perfect size to fit all the stuff i always carry with me along with my 'just in case' items and what ever else dwells in the bottom of my bags. Its also the perfect price of $9 (for some reason i dont have a pound key) for the quality of the leather used, which is really good for primark, it doesn't look or feel cheap and i love the stiching giving it an extra punch. I'm definitely going to be using this lag a latte.


Zara December


I'm absolutely loving the monochrome looks from Zara's December lookbook. Give me a pair of beetlejuice style pants any day. I also love the all black studded leather jacket teamed with an easy T and shiny shimmering sequin skirt look.

Neoprene T

Alexander Wang has recently revealed the new T by Alexander Wang resort 2013 collection and this neoprene bomber jacket paired with the neoprene dress had to be my favourite pieces by far. I love the continuous white line of the zip when the two are paired together and the varsity style of the jacket . I'll admit at first i wasn't to sold on the idea of turning a wetsuit into everyday clothing after wearing them every summer when i was a kid, but after seeing people rocking the Balanciaga neoprene jumpers all over fashion week i'v taken a liking to them, especially with the child like sci-fi images. I also really like Korean designer Junn. J's take on neoprene with modern style geisha images.

old things come together


So today i went shopping with a few girlfriends that i hadn't seen yet since iv been back home from Canada . I can't explain how excited i was to go to Southampton and hit Primark, even if it was like complete war zone. Seriously blood could have been drawn with the amount of people all looking at the same rack of clothing.
For this lovely little outing i decided to wear a few old pieces that i forgot existed. Like this F+F shearling jacket from 2010 when like many others, i was drooling over the Burberry aviator jackets. I forgot how toasty it kept you and how good it can look simply layered over a t-shirt. I paired it up with these old Levi man shorts and a shawl/poncho hybrid baby that i pass of as a scarf that i got in Matalan about 2 years ago. Its fair to say i was definitely a little bit more than cozy in this outfit whilst wrestling threw the crazy saturday shoppers. I made it out safe though and with a few goodies.

nails nails nails

Anyone who knows me knows that i have a slight addiction to nail polish and nail art, almost to the extent where my old roommate was convinced i would die of fume poisoning. However recently i've been lacking in inspiration for any new nail designs or any enthusiasm to do something fancy with my nails, I've just be resorting to standard dark colours or bright pink. In order to get my mojo for nail art back in check i went through a nail art album i forgot i had on facebook and through old instagram pictures and i now present you with some o my favourites from the past 2 years.
