Make My Wish Come True All I Want For Christmas Is...

... A few things actually and unless you're Colin Farrell you're not one of them...

1. A new haircut- i'm open to suggestions!! Would prefer a style I haven't had before

2. New falsies for my bottom lashes- think big old doll eyes 

3. A new laptop- mine's been totally caput for ages now 

So what's on your wish list for Santa this year?? 
It'll officially be Christmas here in less than an hour... Have a great day everyone!

Toodles  to you BEAUTIES (no one's getting called a bitch this time of year!!) xxx

No Bra With That Blouse It's So Necessary, No Panties And Jeans It's So Necessary, Now Why You Frontin' On Me Is That Necessary??...

'Ello, 'ello, 'ello!!! 
Today i'm going to tell you a hairytale about my braids... 

Once upon a time this week- I started trying to find new ways to style my braids... As much as I like them hanging down on their own, my appetite for change got me thinking about buns... Thought  a nice twisted bun would look good and I set about twisting, tying and frantically clipping... But alas no, it wasn't meant to be!!... My braids are just too long and thick. With each attempt I just looked a little more like I was growing a tumour on my head. So I changed tact, still in keeping with the updo theme and i'm quite happy with the results... 

My day 1 attempt was a little sloppy (pic below)- I sorta just wanted all my hair to stay secure on the top of my head... 

But day 2 I managed a nice structured twisted look, feels quite '80s, looks sorta like a hair hat, isn't heavy, takes about 3 minutes to do, doesn't pull and all it requires is a hairband and a few bobby pins to stay quite secure all day- long as you don't start dancin' to Whip My Hair!!...

And because this was a rather grumpy-faced tale, even for me...

  • Lace bodysuit- Ebay
  • Leather shorts- Topshop

  • Lace top- Forever 21
  • PVC skirt- Ebay
  • Levi's denim jacket- Found it upstairs
  • Tights- Primarni
  • Boots- Borrowed, Topshop
  • Hairband- Primarni
  • Earring- Borrowed, thrifted

  • Lips- Illamasque in Blaze
  • Cheeks- Illamasque blusher
  • Eyes- Maybelline gel eyeliner

... And everyone lived happily ever after- The End.

So what d'you make of my twisted do??... Is it a do or a don't??? lololol, i'm hilarious I know.

Toodles to you bitches xx

In December Drinking Horchata I'd Look Psychotic In A Balaclava...

I have literally been waiting all year to use those lyrics for a blog post and now, finally, December has arrived!! Might actually need a balaclava when I go to Manchester for Christmas, it's gonna be absolutely freezing!
Anyway, this is a real quickie, took these rather crappy pics on my webcam... Just showing you guys my new braids!! I put them in yesterday, they're long as ever, just a little bit thinner this time...

So there you go, still shaving the side of my head and the braids are back. Did miss 'em! What d'you reckon??
Stay tuned for more of my 'Hairytale' (still love you for that one Sophia)!!

Toodles to you bitches xx

I Wear Black On The Outside Because Black Is How I Feel On The Inside...

The title line is completely lame outta context- I'm not a 13 year old emo I KNOW!!! If you don't know it's origin please go to the bottom of the page and listen to the link, one of my favourite's of theirs!!
Anyway, today's pics were taken by my friend Arsema again. We used our roof again (and flatmate's) and also the neighbour's roof cos they have all sorts of random shit up there which we thought could make the pics a little more interesting...

I love those boots- they belong to Arsema and are a size too small, think some of my toes might actually be broken but it was worth it... If I ever come into any sorta money i'm definitely going down to Topshop to buy some!!
Right, doing my hair now so i'm off ;)
  • Sheer dress- Miss Selfridge
  • Hold-ups- Primark
  • Boots- Topshop
  • High waisted knickers- H&M
Hope you started your week more productively than I did!!
Toodles to you bitches xx

Be Your Best Friend Yeah I'll Love You Forever, Up In The Clouds We'll Be Higher Than Ever...

Cold, cold, cold, cold!!!!!... I guess I shouldn't really be complaining, the English Winter is usually A LOT colder this time of year. Nevertheless it's still freezing to stand on the roof half naked on a cold, windy London evening!... (Took these yesterday).
Arsema was the photographer again, really thought I was gonna slip off this table and break my neck... Don't try this at home kids!!

Now i'm feeling so fly like a G6- sorry, couldn't help myself!!

  • Top- Forever 21
  • Skirt- Primark & DIY
  • Sunglasses- friend's
  • High waisted knickers- H&M
  • Hold ups- La Senza
  • Maroon lipstick- MAC

...So are you ditching your sheers until Summer or braving it through the Winter months as well??... I keep wanting to put some nice thick thermal under my sheer skirts but it feels like such a copout, gonna see how much longer I can take the Winter air biting my arse...

Toodles to you bitches xx
