Basic Space

I cannot wait to get back to University!
Boredom has seeped into every part of my life. 

I'm using my extremely long down time to plan university outfits and rediscover old music:

Mainly Bombay Bicycle Club for whom I'm having the biggest resurgence of love, they fit my autumnal back to school vibe:

New single from a forgotten favourite:

Its all good wholesome music, nothing ground breaking just things I'd forgotten existed.

Relaxin' and watching the Topshop livestream


Sorry about the break in posting had a case of the post Bestival blues . . .
My brand new white denim jacket got stolen from my tent too! 

But I'm back with knowledge of a SUPERCOOL Korean online store, StyleNanda.
Not only is the product awesome but the styling?! HELLO! 

(and also how awesome and cute are Korean girls!)

Song of Today

Louise Gray X Topshop Make-up

Louise Gray X Topshop

Launching tomorrow Louise Gray's collaboration with Topshop

With 2 major festivals this weekend i thought i'd do some fun make-up looks inspired by the make-up and clothes 

Look 1. 
This is the most simple look I did. It'd be great if you haven't got long in-between bands or before heading out for the night. I'd just prep the face as normal, only making sure you use a powder finish to create a matte look on the skin and little/no bronzer or blush. If you have it add a primer (or vaseline) on the eyelid to help the shadow stick. 
You can get creative with shapes but I'd say stick to this blue/coral colour combination if you can cause it really pops!

Look 2. 
The second look steps up the colour! Using just eye shadow reverse the colours you use on the inside and outside of the lid. Using green and lilac clashes brilliantly but i would avoid using any other colour on the face to avoid looking a bit crazzzzy!
Again this is really simple to do, if you spend a bit more time really blend the colours into one another and right up the just below the brow bone. 

Look 3.
The last look is the most 'out there' but its my favourite for sure! I used my usual eyebrow brush to apply blue shadow to the brows but a regular shadow brush would do the job. 
Again keep colour to a minimum near the brows but you'd maybe get away with a pink-y lip. 
As for the gold heart, i just used my Barry M gold dust and small brush to create the shape. (i did put some vaseline down first to help it stick). I think i'll put this look to the test again before i go to Bestival in a few weeks! 

Louise gray for Topshop launches 23/08 in selected stores and online

If you know any tracks you think I'd love please let me know , I'm always looking to keep the party going.

Online Store SSense is fast becoming my go to place for online inspiration. It hosts designer clothes in a cool minimalist environment. I use it to keep up to date with what the designers are stocking, even if i don't spend all that much.   
Just the fact they stock MARGIELA. 


Designspiration: if you don't know about it get with the programme. great webpage for design;
noted, the graphic design featured is simplistic and cool. 


the good kind

The Pre-Fall collection by Acne is jam-packed with great outwear, a personal favourite being the Navy blue shearing jacket or for a lighter option the black bomber. 

But decide for yourself . . .

See them all in more detail here.

For some cheaper alternatives look no further yall!
