Skying


hoodie - gift, top - h&m, shorts - topshop

some photos from last week when I was home and lazying about in my cute little horrors hoodie :) I went into town today yesterday to buy some t shirts that aren't black. Its actually proper difficult to find plain t shirt... like not a crop top or a "boyfriend fit" or see-through or longer at the back...but I found some cute ones in zara. I left one of my shopping bags on the bus there was only a cardigan in it but still :/ Im hoping that karma will deliver me a new cardigan or maybe ill win exactly €12.99, you never know.
I put some clothes on ebay, a grey crop denim jacket from River Island and a denim pinafore dress from Topshop, both as good as new

I don't know what this expression is but appreciate my eyeliner... thx ;)

Under The Skin


I went to see Under the Skin this day last week. I haven't posted about it because I've been so busy. Trying to rent my flat to someone is more stressful than I imagined. I loved Under the Skin, not only because Scarlett Jo looks amazing as an alien seductress but because it's surreal and beautiful and somewhat unsettling but that just seems to add to the beauty. At first I found it difficult to get into the story because its so abstract and otherworldly but after awhile I started to relax into the pace (sort of like being hypnotized except not as extreme) I read in Empire that a lot of the scenes were filmed with hidden cameras. I cant believe some of public didn't recognise Scarlett Johansson, although she does look so much different as a glam short haired brunette. Speaking of short haired brunettes heres a picture ...


Its still winter weather here so thats why all the black

The special effects, sound and beauty of every shot make this film one of my favourites. It also says some interesting things about gender and sexuality, particularly the scene at the end... um I dont want to give any spoilers so here are some screen caps. This review says that she looks like Mick Jagger from Performance hehe idk .. And this interview with the director Jonathan Glazer is quite interesting, he talks about the challenges of shooting the film from an alien perspective

Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!


a picture from today of my perfect/imperfect cat flicks. I was going for Chanel ss 14 eye makeup. You cant tell from this picture but I'm wearing silver glitter eyeliner on my lower lashes, its from essence at Primark and the black liquid eyeliner is called Super Liner Ultra Precision by L'oreal Paris
Chanel couture spring 2014
this eyeliner is more than perfect, close up the glitter looks almost like sequins
Chanel S/S 2014 Ready to Wear
Chanel's artsy eye shadow palette is so creative and so beautiful. I'm tempted to try this but I doubt I could pull it off hehe

Daisies


Vera Chytilova, one of my favourite directors of all time died today so I'm watching Daisies (Sedmikrasky) to celebrate her life. Daisies is the first film I really fell in love with. The cinematography and set design is so beautiful. I love Vera Chytilova for mixing anarchy with beauty and creating something entirely unique. She will always be an influence and an inspiration for me.

I took some screencaps of the movie using my iphone :p

Teen Dream


I went to Derry yesterday to buy a dress for my formal in April. I tried on so many amazing dresses in Coast. I got this red and pink dress in the sale :) I am so in love with it


It looks even better irl. I love the netting on the bottom. I was going to enter a competition with Topshop to win a custom made prom dress. You have to create a moodboard on pinterest of your dream dress
---> my moodboard is pastel/marie antoinette/teen prom queen


I found this Topshop moodboard from a previous season. I think its pretty cute. All I want is some Meadham Kirchhoff S/S 12
