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.

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!

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

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

Tie Dye….❤

Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 11.49.50

Since its valentines day and I obviously have nowhere to be, I thought I would introduce you guys to a new craze of mine…Tie Dye! I absolutely love anything that adores this pattern/effect (I ain’t sure which one it is). The only downside is that anything that features it is real expensive. But do not worry because it actually turns out that tie dye is really easy to create. So currently, as you read and I write, my experimental Tie Dye tee is drying out!

Image

The beauty of tie dye is that it comes in loads of different styles. The most common tends to be swirls, but personally I prefer a more stripy or marbled effect.  You get it on tees, crops, jeans, quilts and basically anything made of fabric. To be honest my parents were big lovers of tie dye, before I even got interested. Maybe it was a form of rebellion not wanting to be like it, I really don’t know. But at least now I have seen the error of my ways and have learned to love it!

Image

 Forget Steampunk, tie dye is the new fashion craze. Shops such as asos, cow vintage, Topshop, River Island and Dorothy Perkins, all have huge tie dye collections. I have been browsing through them recently and if you are not willing to make it but still want, them I would recommend ASOS and Cow Vintage because their designs are just far brighter and bolder, making them a bit more appropriate for spring.

Image

So to summarise, I think that tie dye is absolutely amazing and that it is the perfect look for spring. To all the haters…..You must be total fashion delinquents! 😛

Though remember when wearing tie dye less is more. Try and go for tops that are more subtle but quite colourful at the same time. I would personally recommend wearing some sort of tie dye that has white included in it and would definitely avoid anything with too many colours

Image(this is what I mean)

So I hope you guys have learned to love tie dye and have a great valentines day. I am personally not a fan of the day, for the simple reason that I believe it is basically a scam worked up by the card companies, which just makes things really akward, and or for some people depressing. But to be honest the whole admirers thing doesn’t really bother me! That’s just my opinion though, have an awesome day! xoxo

Also tomorrow I think I will be showing you guys my crafty fashion creations which have occupied me all this week. So be sure to come back and check them out!

Cara Delevigne…❤

Image

Can we all just take a second to appreciate the amazingness of Cara delevigne! I am literally obsessed with her at the moment. She is just so unique  and yes of course a part of me wishes I was her. She got 38 shows last season and is the face of burberry, DKNY, chanel, and many more. Cara was also voted Vogue’s ‘star face’ of Autum/Winter 2012-13. xoxo

Image

As well as being like the best model in the world, she also has the best style. Despite having a job where she is required to be very girlie and feminine a lot of the time, she manages to stay the tomboy she has always been, with a cool sort of punk rock style.

Image

I admire her in the sense that she is still so young but has worked extremely hard and is already at the top of her game. Everyone she meets, seems to love her bubbly and fun personality and also seem to be astonished that she is just not arrogant at all.

Image

I would personally love the opportunity to be a model, and i think that the versatility of her face is amazing. It just seems elastic, for example, sometimes her powerful dark eyebrows can make her look fierce and sultry, then the next second she looks soft and beautiful.

Image

As you may have already noticed, I am kinda obsessing over Cara Delevigne at the moment (but not in a weird way 😛 ), she has became a sort of idol of mine. She is an amazing model, so I recommend you check out this months issue of Vogue Uk, because she has a huge spread, that will help you get to know her better.

The reasons I think Cara stands out so much is because she is unique looking. Writing this post has made me realise that I need to listen to my own advice sometimes and stop obsessing over trying to be her and just except who I am. Because who knows what will happen in the future…xoxo

And they call me a poser…..

Image

Hey if you guys hadn’t already noticed, I am kinda a serial poser. It isn’t really anything to be ashamed of because seriously, who wants to look bad in a pic! But instagram is like a huge part  of my day to day life, so I thought if I am gonna have a blog then all my lovelie readers might want to know something about me, (right this is awkward if you don’t *awkward balloon*), so here is a me! Enjoy my Posing! xoxo

Image

 OMG WHAT HAPPENED……:P

Image

I am awake btw!…..:P

Image

A little crazy, can be a good thing….

Image

 Who cares if it is snowing….:P

I hope you found this funny, and make sure to follow me on Instagram! I promise more zoolander goodness!

Statement Sunglasses

Image

It doesn’t matter what kind of weather it is this spring, just get your sunglasses out and look cool. When I talk about sunglasses I don’t mean any ordinary black ray-bans, I am talking about bold, bright and beautiful sunnies. So make a statement this spring with your eyewear!

Image

They were seen on every runway, so if you don’t agree with their amazingness then take it up with Anna Sui, Phillip Lim and Diane Von Furstenberg. Anna Dello Russo is another of many designers who have created beautiul pieces which, some people are calling OTT. So I  say to these people claiming that they are too much, that Lady Gaga is not the only person, on this planet who can pull them off, ordinary people are allowed to look awesome as well!

Image

So guys join me in begining to collect statement sunnies, for this up and coming spring/summer season. If you love them as much as I do, then who cares what the haters think, being bold is what fashion is all about!

Why be a sheep, when you can be a Lion! xoxo
