Leopard Print


top - h&m
shorts - topshop (sold out similar here)
boots - topshop

I'm currently snowed in at home so I've been watching Twin Peaks and reading lots. I think I will always be obsessed with the Edie Sedgwick look, leopard print and black velvet forever <3
 I've been using temporary hair dye recently (L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss) but it has left a lot of copper tones in my hair. Does anyone know how to reduce the copper tones without dying it again? I would love to get back to my original colour

Cast Me Marc: Marc By Marc Jacobs S/S 15

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 campaign features models cast from social media sites. After the success of the Autumn/Winter 14 campaign Marc by Marc Jacobs used the hastag #castmemarc to source models from social media sites like instagram and twitter. Similar to Meadham Kirchhoff's Spring/Summer 15 show designers are turning to social media to cast models. There is hope for us normals yet hehe :)

White Light/White Heat


coat - forever 21 (sold out similar here)
dress - oh my love
bag - river island
shoes - new look

My attempts at posting my outfit (in desperate need of a tripod). I love this plaid boyfriend coat so much, I never thought Id get tired of wearing parkas but I've lived in them for three years and I think its time to move on. I found these shoes at the bottom of my wardrobe, I sort of forgot they existed. I think they look really cool with this dress or possibly a white shirt and black jeans. It's my last week on holidays before I have to go back to uni so I'm trying to cram as many books, movies and music into my free time as is possible, its exhausting, I think I'm relaxing wrong :L

Favourite Albums of 2014


St. Vincent - St. Vincent
Best Album of the Year

I fell in love with this album when I seen St. Vincent back in February. The album sounds incredible live and Annie Clark's in your face experimental performance style really transforms songs like Rattlesnake and Birth in Reverse. Personally I love songs like Prince Johnny and Huey Newton because they really show off St. Vincent's raw talent. On Black Friday, St. Vincent released a 10 inch single as part of Record Store. The two new songs Pieta and Sparrow may give us an indication of the sound of the next album but who knows what Annie Clark has in store for us next. 
Favourite Track: Prince Johnny


Dum Dum Girls - Too True
Favourite Album by the Dum Dum Girls

 Too True is a tribute to rock n roll, teen gangs and canonical poets like Rimbaud and Baudelaire. The Dum Dum Girls are moving in the direction of the rock n roll golden years, of idols, poster boys and star crossed myths. An album with the atmosphere of the lost generation. 
Favourite Track: Lost Boys and Girls Club


Haunted Hearts - Initiation
Cult Favourite

Haunted Hearts is a collaboration between Dee Dee Penny of the Dum Dum Girls and Brandon Welchez of the Crocodiles. Haunted Hearts would be at home in Studio 64, The Factory or anywhere where fur coats and tinsel are considered normcore. In Mojo, Dave Grohl described Haunted Hearts as a duet between Siouxsie Sioux and Lou Reed, which is everything you could ever want really. 
Favourite track: Initiate me


The Raveonettes - Pe'ahi
Best Sound

Seventh studio album by the Danish noise pop duo and they sound better than ever. I look to The Raveonettes when Im in need of some sophisticated noise. 
Favourite track: Sisters


Honeyblood - Honeyblood
Best Debut of 2014

Honeyblood is my favourite new musical discovery of 2014. The Glaswegian indie pop duo write songs about your life. Honeyblood as the perfect soundtrack to any teenager's daily existential crisis. 
Favourite track: Killer Bangs


Alvvays - Alvvays
Best Summer Album

Play this album when wandering around a dead end town in late July or alternatively on road drive along the West Coast (oh I wish I didn't fail at driving). Message from Alvvays: be happy in the haze.
Favourite track: Adult Diversion


Wolf Alice - Creature Songs
Favourite Upcoming Band

Creature Songs is the second EP by Wolf Alice and their most promising yet. Moaning Lisa Smile is such a great song and I can't wait for their studio album. 
Favourite Track: Moaning Lisa Smile


Karen O - Crush Songs
Favourite Solo Act

The first solo album from Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Crush Songs sounds like it has been written inside a music box. Lo-fi dreaminess and therefore perfect mixtape music.
Favoruite Track: Rapt

What are your favourite albums of 2014??

P.S. see how the descriptions get shorter and more vague, its called laziness haha
