Cry Me An Ocean Build You A Boat Then Sail Away, If This Is So Difficult I Cannot Make You Stay...

Ciao bitches. How are you all?? 
I have been a lil busy of late- getting my tan on and looking for a new house to move into AWAY FROM THE OLYMPICS, hence the blogging dry spell...
Anyway, here I am again. Wearing the jumpsuit I dust off every Summer cos I still love it... In my latest reincarnation i've matched it up with a braids-incorporated turban, chunky belt, my round, blue sunnies and glossy orange lips...

  • Scarf- friend's
  • Glasses- Ebay I think?!
  • Jumpsuit- Retro Rehab
  • Belt- Clothes Show Live
  • Lips- Illamasque and Mac mix

Back soon
Toodles to you bitches xx

Oh Say Can You See My Stars, The Night Time Is Almost Ours...

So I finally went to the post office to collect my Dirtyloves shorts. Besides the obvious camel-toe potential i'm really happy with them. Looking forward to the weather being good enough to actually be able to wear them outside (did that sentence make sense? I'm really not sure)...

Assumed a bun like this wouldn't be possible with the length and weight of my hair, but I was wrong... all my hair fit in, no clips or bobbles necessary, it stayed secure for hours and it didn't strain my hair or weigh me down at all!!! Win...

  • Top- Still a mystery item!!
  • Shorts- DirtyLoves
  • Waistcoat- Brick Lane
  • Glasses- Primark
  • Ring- Forever 21

Toodles to you bitches xx

That Mean I'm A High Roller, My Ex Wanna Work It Out- Bitch Try Yoga...

Y'know, my friends often tell me to get rid of this shirt- I've had it for years, it has a hole in it, frayed edges  and a few missing buttons, but I love it and don't think i'll ever throw it away... Even though it's usually in-house only these days and my friends use it as pyjamas when they stay over, I still occasionally find some new way to wear it...

  • Shirt- Vintage on Oldham St
  • Shorts- Brick Lane
  • Necklace- Canny remember

Do you have any comfort clothes you refuse to get rid of even though people encourage you to chuck them??

Toodles to you bitches xx

You Cry Out In Your Sleep, All My Failings Exposed, There's a Taste In My Mouth, As Desperation Takes Hold, Just That Something So Good, Just Can't Function No More...

...Love, love will tear us apart, again... One of my favourite songs for sure!!

Even though i've always found Creepers quite ugly shoes, I knew they'd be a great asset to my collection. 
They go with just about everything!!
So finally I have some and wear them all the time so expect to be seeing a lot more of them in future posts...

  • Hat- Beyond Retro
  • Glasses- Claire's Accessories
  • Joy Division vest- a shop off Brick Lane I stupidly forgot to find out the name of
  • Hold-ups- Primark
  • Creepers- Ebay
  • Lips- Illamasque

There doesn't seem to be any middle ground when it comes to Creepers- people either seem to love them or hate them with a passion. Which camp are you in??

Toodles to you bitches xx

I'll Bring You Flowers In The Pouring Rain, Living Without You Is Driving Me Insane...

So in case anyone was wondering, the 'twist' I mentioned with my latest braids was just that I added a few blonde ones... Very exciting I know. Other than that they are essentially the same. Same length, I put them in in the same way and they're still 1B in the rest of my hair. However this time I have 60 plaits as opposed to the 35 I think I had last time- which, when considering their thickness and that both sides of my head are shaved and a bit at the back, is rather a lot...

Hoochie mama show your nana!!!!!... Swear my butt is shrinking though, very strange!!...

People are still always asking me if my hair is heavy. It's noticeable for the first day or two, then it feels completely normal!!...
So no, I do not have to walk around with my head tilted to the side tryna stop myself from falling over under the weight as people seem to think!!! Hahaha
  • Earrings- 1menaturally
  • Top- Forever 21
  • Bloomers- Beyond Retro
  • Cheeks- Mac painstick in Nocturnal plum
  • Lips- Mac paintstick in Nocturnal plum coated in Dior lipgloss
Toodles to you bitches xx

In The Words Of A Broken Heart It's Just eMOTION Taking Me Over...

... Nope that wasn't a typo- motion really did eff up my 'shoot' with Sem today... It was bloody freezing, especially since we were near water, so I was trying to stop shivering the whole time and on more than one occasion I was shaking like a leaf... As you'll be able to see on some of today's pics lol.

Anyway, the lovely people at Sugarlipsapparel (an LA based boutique) sent me this tank top. It's comfy- the brown top layer is all smooth with a cut out design and there's a sheer black layer underneath... Will be wearing it more when the sun actually appears!!...

Have a look at my feeble attempts at not looking cold...


Even though it's completely out of focus, this is probably my favourite picture of the day!!...

If you want to take a closer look at the tank top you can view it here

Give Me Your Dirty Love, Like You Might Surrender To Some Dragon In Your Dreams. Give Me Your Dirty Love, Like A Pink Donation To The Dragon In Your Dreams...

So me and my mate Lil went down to the launch of at McQueen in Shoreditch last night... And although I knew that it's a rather sexy brand I wasn't expecting what was in store for us...

After descending the stairs into the dimly lit bar the first thing that caught my eye was a big table of flying saucers (the sweets with sherbet inside, not the kind people are always claiming to be spotting in Roswell)...

But as we got closer it was what was perched on top of the flying saucers that really grabbed our attention...

(this image = courtesy of

Yes, all sorts of naughty treats!!

We oohed and aahed and giggled a bit as we rummaged through the goodies on the tables before moving on to have a little browse through the clothing...

They had a nice range clothes and lingerie...

This was definitely my favourite tee (it says 'Hate' not 'Late' as it looks like with the fabric fold lol)

Want these!!

At £8 I couldn't resist... Actually bought these shorts on the website literally 5 minutes ago!! Ha...

After having a good ole rummage through the samples we spent the rest of the evening munching on tasty cupcakes and sweets and sipping delicious Scarlett Martinis (didn't really take pics though cos we were too busy munching lol).


I've been thinking about it a bit since yesterday and the DIRTYloves approach just seems really modern... Naughty without being tacky, kitsch but not cliché. The whole idea of lifestyle brands that merge affordable fashion with events, sex toys, a magazine etc etc, is generally where the fashion industry appears to be headed...

If you're interested you can check out the DIRTYloves website here.

What d'you think of lifestyle brands? Are they the future??... Definitely seems that way in blog world!!...

New hairstyle reveal tomorrow ;)

Have a fabulous Friday!
Toodles to you bitches xx
