Wednesday Want Week 27: Creepers


Sorry it's so so so late, but I've been really busy lately, and haven't had my mac around so haven't had a chance to post. I'll try to keep up but I'm failing badly atm!

Anyway, this week's Wednesday want features creepers.  I've seen them all over the internet and I really like them.  Unfortunately they're really expensive, normally around £80 and I'm paranoid that they'll make my feet look really flat and long as I'm a 7, so I desperately need to go somewhere to try them on! Buy creepers here.

Harajuku

I've been wanting to do a post like this for a while but never got round to it!  Since I was about 13 I've always been fascinated by the Harajuku and Lolita fashions, even attempting to dress similar to the style back then.  I love the sheer randomness, the colours, and unique styling.  The people who pull it off are so confident and clearly put a lot of effort into their wardrobe.  The selection I have is not very extreme compared to some of the Cybergoth fashions, but the clothes are still awesome!

Sunday Summary Week 19

1/ Photoboothing with Freddie
2/ Brand new Moleskine for graphics! (;
3/ Freddie messing around with the glass doors, hahaha
4/ My favourite tights ruined ):
5/ A car at college, post-it noted to shit
6/ Got my hair dyed blonder (purples fading!)

Things I loved this week:
1/ As always, loving Lauren's blog, Noir Nouvelle, especially her new layout!
2/ This little stick man game, pretty cute
3/ Name origin generator, pretty funny!

So if you're an (unfortunate) follower of my twitter, you'll know that my weekend has been, well, shite.  I felt really left out on Friday, as all of my friends went to events, none of which I was invited to, there was supposed to be a party on Saturday, which got cancelled, so I decided to go to London with my dad to redeem my lomo voucher, but he also let me down, then today I was supposed to go to my boyfriends band recording but he had no signal so we couldn't communicate properly and it all went pear shaped.  So altogether I've been pretty unhappy this past 3 days, with a few tears being shed, but I did get to see Alex for two hours from 7 so at least I got to do something, and it did cheer me up a little.

Apologies for the super long rambly sentence, I'm absolutely knackered and need to get some shut eye.  Night night all!

This Turbulance is Beautiful

So the other day I received a little parcel from the lovely Kate from This.Is.What.I.Do.  A little while ago she held a giveaway on Twitter with one of her great skull necklaces from her online shop up for grabs.  luckily, I won and had my pick of any colour!  I decided to go with black and I'm so happy with it.  Kate makes each skull herself, as well as t-shirts and earrings, so I urge you to check out her shop here, as her stuff is so cool, and really well priced.  Thank you so much Kate!

Reading Festival 2011 (3)














Here's the third and final post with my photographs from Reading Festival.  They were taken on a disposeable camera and I'm really happy with the way they turned out, considering!  (The contents in the baggie being held up by my friend is in fact flapjack, just clarifying in case it looks dodgy!) I really miss Reading now, as I had such an amazing time and I'm definitely going to go again for my 5th consecutive time next year!

Wednesday Want Week 26: Barberry & Lace


I actually could not think of anything to post about for the Wednesday want this week, but luckily was tweeted by the lovely Leigh who owns the Barberry and Lace shop.  I took a look and I loooove it all!  I'll admit I've seen stuff like it before but this has a little unique quality that makes it different from the other online stores, and the prices are so great! As always, click on the photos for the listing and here for the shop!

UO



So the time has come to reveal what was in my Urban Outfitters package in my Sunday Summary.  It's a satchel!  I bought it in the sale for just £22 plus postage and from the websites dimensions it would be the perfect size to have as a bag to use for college.  It arrived and I'm quite sad to say that I was a little disappointed.  The leather is pretty plasticy and the fabric seems a bit flimsy, plus it's too small to fit A4, contrary to the measurements online.  At least I didn't spend too much, and I guess I could use it as a casual going out bag, but I'm still gutted as I love the pattern.  I would give you the link to the listing but it's now sold out, sorry!

Reading Festival 2011 (2)










 












 Photos today are from the Thursday/Friday and possibly Saturday at Reading.  This is the camera with my favourite pictures, mostly down to the group picture of everyone in the mud and the one of my and alex, cuuuute!  Also, I'm getting a little bored of my current camera lens, and am looking into getting a 50mm lens for my Nikon D5000.  However I know nothing about them, so if you have experience or have general knowledge about them, let me know some details, are they worth the price? What makes them different to the bog standard 35mm lenses? Help!
