I’m Back!! For the Second time!

Finally, I am back (again)! So much has changed since I have last blogged! I was initially thinking of shutting my blog down because I have been away for so long but after reading my stats and seeing how much it is still viewed I realised I just couldn’t give up!

Since all the fashion weeks have been I will  probably do a recap of my favourites soon! So stay Tuned!!!

My New Love….❤

Let me introduce you to my new obsession/Dream Bezzie, P’Trique!

Image

I am probably a bit of a late comer when it comes to P’Trique, but never the less I have discovered what was missing in my life! 😛 OMG this…lady must be the coolest, funniest and most beautiful fashionista out there. I mean you guys think you’re original, well I don’t see your beard and bangs! Bö Ja!

Image

P’trique is just hysterical, I wish there was some sort of online fashion week commentary done by her! Seriously I would never leave my house. The world of fashion is very professional so P’trique being her funny, fun loving self is just a breath of fresh air. Seriously I would pay could money to sit next to her at a fashion show.

Image

If you have not checked out this fashionista then I must insist you go now! Go On….What are you waiting for!

My Spring Must Haves!

Photo on 10-03-2013 at 20.46 #2

Hey Guys sorry again for being such a slacker but clubs and homework have once caught up with me, so I haven’t blogged about anything interesting for donkey’s years….

I have made an effort to do some shopzin though and after seeing what’s in the shops I thought I would share with you some of my favourite styles and must haves.

xoxo 🙂

Favourite Number One! TIE DYE

You probably already know but I am absolutely loving Tie Dye at the moment and I think with all the bright and bold patterns it is perfect for spring. All the major high street shops like asos, topshop, river island, Urban outfitters and H&M have it, but if you want to be extra awesome  I recommend making your own. it is half the price, great fun and you get major bragging rights! 😛

House of Holland Tie Dye TEE @ Asos

Favourite Number Two! Cropped Tees

I dunno why but I am absolutely obsessed with cropped tees at the moment. They seem to be great for everything, school, shopping or just lazing around. I love them especially those in Topshop if you guys don’t own one you have to go out and buy one they are awesome! xoxo

Favourite Number Three! Oversize!

Another thing I am loving this spring and is probably a huge contradiction to what I just said, is oversized tops. I am loving oversized tops and shirts. They look awesome with leggings and are really comfy!

Favourites Four and Five! Platforms and Backpacks

PLATFORMS: Platform trainers have always been a love of mine but I dunno this spring I just seem to be loving them even more. I have like 5 pairs now and am wearing them constantly. Not only do they make me taller (which is always a bonus) they are just so coo, comfy and go with more or less anything. 🙂

Warning: If you but one pair you will have to but another! 😛

BACKPACKS: I don’t just mean any kind of backpacks, I mean the cutest kind. Sadly and probably quite stupidly I don’t know there name but you guys will know once you see a pic. They are just so cute and I have one as my school bag. They are perfect for everything and I just have no words to describe my Love!

Despite living in a place where even though it is spring it is SNOWING I am still loving spring fashion and allthough it is impossible to wear a t-shirt outside without dying of hypothermia, I will make an effort!

2. I love all things sour. Lemons, Limes, Vinegar. I absolutely love them.

3. I have literally never done anything to my hair. Partly because I have the most mental cowslick in the world and also because my mum is so scared it will loose its colour. Seriously it has never been layered, cut short, not anything.

4. I can’t say Marshmallow and I never actually releasied I was saying it wrong until I was about 11. When I say it kinda sounds a bit more like ‘Mashmarllow’. 😛

Maya Who?

Image

Hey Guys, so the other day I was thinking that I’ve had this blog for a wee while now and I have yet to really introduce myself to you guys. Basically I won’t be giving too much away, seeing as I need to protect my top secret identity, but hopefully you will get to know just enough so that  you will maybe understand me a bit better. xoxo

I am a proud scot, and I have never lived anywhere else. This is probably the reason I am so eager to travel and discover the rest of the world. This blog is admittedly a secret so welcome to my little world.

I love clothes, beauty and just everything to do with fashion, but to be fair I do hide it a lot in my ‘real life’. I won’t lie I do quite well in school and I think more or less everyone I know expects me to go to university and become a doctor or lawyer of some sort, but I wont say too much about that…. maybe we will just see what happens with time. 😛 I do love sport and I have done almost all things sporty from Karate to athletics. Which may be a controversial because most bloggers especially fashion seem to be dead set against it.

When I grow up I do want to go to university, but I really would like to be involved in fashion, Whether I am a pro blogger or a top model I don’t mind but I would love to be involved in it one way or another.

I love music and although I personally believe I am the worst singer in the country, I do play a couple of instruments and I am starting more. I’ve been playing the violin for donkey’s years now, and I can also play the ukulele and guitar. I do prefer my ukulele but it is always good to have an understanding of other things, (or at least thats what people tell me 😛 ) P.S I am starting piano this week so wish me luck.  xoxo

Grrr: I am so jealous of all of you who live in wonderful and interesting cities like London or New York. I admittedly do live a very rural life but that doesn’t stop me from being connected to the outside world. Its not like we live in the victorian times guys. Although the downside of living somewhere so rural and cold has to be the fact that people just wear trackies and anaracks most of the time. Plus some don’t even venture to the more central areas of Scotland and experience fashion and uniqueness, so i am ashamed to say that the majority of my school thinks that g-star, adidas and and any other naf sporting brand is trendy. You don’t know the pain….. 😛

Me and my BFF are like the only people in the whole school who try and be a bit different. I am not  kidding you it is like I live in a colony of chavs! hahah

I hope you guys feel like you know me a bit better and if you have any other questions be sure to leave a comment xoxo

Grunge…..

ImageI am bloomin’ loving grunge atm. I have given up trying to look cute and pretty because to be honest I just don’t have that kinda face. My obsession with the 90’s and Cara Delevigne proably has a big part to play in this new craze of mine, but sitting watching a true hollywood story today on Johnny Depp today probably pushed me over the edge. Him and Kate Moss were the perfect couple. Both just as carelessly cool as the other.

Image

I think this suits me because I have a mad cows lick thing on my forehead which means when I wear a middle parting it looks as though I have just rollen out of bed. But hey ho thats what grunge is all about, Minimal effort

Image(Look at me rocking dat grunge shizz)

I have actually decided that this is happening, so this sunday i am gonna do some major shopzin, and I get a new grungeified wardrobe. Seriously you will be seeing a female Johnny Depp. Who is by the way, the kind of all things grunge.

Image

I seriously could not mention the word Grunge without bringing up Johnny Depp. Some may say nirvana but personally I think Johnny Depp was the first. His careless junky sheek style is the definition of amazing. He might not be quite as cool anymore but in his younger years he was more or less a grunge god. But who almost equals his grunge goodness… the one and only Kate Moss.

Image

Her amazing face and effortless style is an inspiration. I am now in the process of trying to make myself look like the love child of Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne! xoxo

Hey hope you have taken a bit of inspiration and come back soon to check out my grunge god makeover! 😛

…And I didn’t give a damn

London Fashion Week- PPQ Love

Image

Before I start this post I would like to just say a big sorry to everyone. Things have been so hectic this week, because I am back at school after half term, so my rountine is just all over the place. Please accept my apology and I hope you can relate! xoxo

P.S Thanks to everyone who visits, please follow, so close to a 100 followers!

Image

I have  been missing everything this wee but I have managed to check up on London Fashion Week and I am loving PPQ’s new collection. Some people may be a bit sceptical about the fact that they ditched the old dark and dreary colours associated with Autumn and Winter, and used a brighter summer palette really but it really appealed to me!

Image

They had everything from black bodices to sweeping layered dresses, in all colours from zesty orange to bubblegum pink, as well as lime greens and beautiful yellows. The colour pop  coats and flirty skirts made it the liveliest and in my opinion the best collection for this Autum/Winter.

Keep Calm and Love PPQ! xoxo

My DIY Fashion!

Image

Hey Guys, if you have read any of my posts this week, then you may be aware that I have been crafting like all day, everyday. On Monday I bought my supplies and today I have finally completed everything. I hope you guys like what I have done and maybe this will inspire you guys to have fun with your clothes!

Image

My first project was renovating my vans. I got my first ever pair of vans like a year ago and I wore them more or less everyday, so they got pretty trashed. I had seen ‘galaxy vans’ in shops and I loved them, so when I realised that you could do it yourself I had to give it a try.

To get this effect you will need about 4 different shades of acryliic paint, (I am pretty sure you can’t use any other type), preferably in the colours navy blue, purple, white and pink or baby blue. Sponges are a must and it really helps if you have something which you can copy. Oh yeah I almost forgot, you also need a tooth brush to splatter the pain to give a ‘starry’ effect.

If you really want to give this a try then I recommend going on youtube and watching some tutorials because they really help.

Image

DIY No.2- Ombre Shorts. These have to be one of my favourite creations, because I have wanted ombre (dip dye) shorts for so long. I made them out of a pair of old, pretty long summer shorts which I never really wore. They turned out really cool and I cannot wait to wear them this spring/summer.

If you are wanting to get this effect on just normal denim shorts them you have to bleach them first, so that they can absorb the dye better. It doesn’t take that long to bleach them, but if you really can’t be bothered then you should use a pair that are light, preferably cream, white, or a light wash denim. Also do not use expensive shorts when doing this because even though it is very easy you do not want to make a mistake and end up ruining them.

When creating ombre shorts you will need, two FABRIC dyes, (I used dylon, Bahama blue & Flamingo pink), two containers/buckets, gloves and a spoon. Also make sure you do it on a protected surface. 🙂Image

Now when you are dying shorts or generally using fabric dye you will probably have a lot left over, so I recommend dying other stuff to avoid waste. I decided to tie dye a cheap t-shirt I bought from Primark (£2.50 OH YEAH) and it turned out so cool. I have actually worn it once and I love it.

I used the same dye as my shorts and a knotting technique to achieve this effect. You will need rubber bands, squirty bottles, a plastic bag and a very helpful youtube video.

Image

The last thing I did was a bit spontaneous because I hadn’t really planned it, but I am glad i tried it because it has made my platforms look so much cooler. I has seen a pair of ‘speckled’ vans and so I thought I would give it a try. Though putting all those tiny dots is a lot of hard work so I ended up just putting them on the heel and toe, but I still think it looks awesome and adds a pop of colour to an admittedly quite boring pair of shoes.

To do this I didn’t use anything fancy just the end of a paint brush. You again have to use either acryllic or fabric paint, because they are they only which will not wash off. You will also have to be patient and have a lot of concentration, because it can get a bit tedious at times.

I hope you guys like my designs and if you want any advice or help, then be sure to leave a comment or email me. Now remember you don’t have to do what I did and just attempt all these at once. It is perfectly fine if you just want to attempt the one because it is quite time consuming. I would recommend doing these when you are on holiday because, it is not worth the time if you skimp or rush the process.

Have fun with your fashion! xoxo
