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!

Been working lately so I'm going to let my hair down big style. 

You can probably tell i'm loving a certain type of music of late, disco/house/ambient-ish. 
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!

Azealia Banks X T by Alexander Wang



Gui Martinez

Recently came across JAGR magazine; a Tokyo based online hub of cool stuff. 
Edited features on art, fashion and music.
 featured photographer Gui Martinez was a total highlight 

just a great colour palette; subtle and cool.
They are the kind of images that need Four Tet to accompany them (or failing that some peace and quite, if you're old fashioned). 

Portraits are raw and intimate; both JAGR and Martinez worth a look. 


Elements of design i've loved recently

Want some mirrored numbers for my wall
'92 baby!

Playlist 06/08

Trying to get some summer vibes in amongst all this rain . . . 

So many remixes.

Creepin' on ASOS

ASOS is a dangerous place, we all know this. So to soften the blow I've filled my 'Saved Items' with my ideal wardrobe, its about as close i'm gonna get to owning any of it right now so why the hell not! It's all quite 'minimalist grunge' in fashion speak.

We can't forget shoes now.

ALVI Flatform Ankle boot £35.00

Gienchi Gasop Studded High-top £210

ALTITUDE Leather Boot £55.00

 One of my BFF Amy, works at ASOS so Shout/Out to her! She's also got a cracking blog 'If Looks Could Kill'


I don't know about you but i'm a list maker. So satisfying being able to tick something off isn't is?! So i started this blog, to get a tick, it's loomed over me so long, I've finally done it. 
Fingers crossed this doesn't turn out to be a pile of crap so in the words of Kel (of Kenan and Kel fame), Awwwwww here goes! 

Fruit Juice, Salad, Toilet Paper; one of my better lists.
