Feeling Gothic


Today has been a very long day, I am still waiting on the thank-God-it's-Friday-feeling. So, please excuse my rather shellshocked expression and manic hair!! 
This is a very unusual outfit for me as it is void of any colour, I'm feeling rather gothic.

Forever






I have added a song that you should listen to, it's called Forever by an amazing band called Haim. If you haven't heard of them they are 3 sisters who write great songs, have brill dance moves and love 90's girl groups like TLC - what's not to love? I have been dancing around to this song all afternoon because it is just so so so good. 

Here are the words for when your singing along:
Hey you!
Remember me?
Remember love?
Remember trying to stay together?
My time, you took it all.
You tried to see.
You tried to bring yourself up without involving me.
It isn't fair,
to have your way,
to try and get up and go and na na na na now can't you see,
it isn't fair to have your way,
but i'm trying to get your attention and i need you to know that.

Hey you! Hey you!
Can't you make this thing?
I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game.
Now I know I'm gonna go your way.
Here we go, now I know, I know know know.

Forever I try to make it right,
Together we suck, end in sight,
I'm tired of fighting the good fight,
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye.

Forever I see you and me,
Forever I'll try for you and I,
No I never believed in the reason,
Just another good reason to get a ride.

I don't want to turn around,
So come on baby,
Come on and try to let it out,
Let it go.
We're still the same,
So come on baby,
Kick to the sounds, figure it out,
Lets get back to where we started out.

Hey you! Hey you!
Can't you make this thing?
I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game.
Now I know I'm gonna go your way.
Here we go, now I know, I know know know.

Forever I try to make it right,
Together we suck, end in sight,
I'm tired of fighting the good fight,
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye.

Forever I see you and me,
Forever I'll try for you and I,
No I never believed in the reason,
Just another good reason to get a ride.

Go go go go get out get out of my memory,
No no no not tonight I don't have the energy.

Go go go go get out get out of my memory,
No no no not tonight, oh not tonight, oh not tonight.

Forever I try to make it right,
Together we suck, end in sight,
I'm tired of fighting the good fight,
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye.

Forever I see you and me,
Forever I'll try for you and I,
No I never believed in the reason,
Just another good reason to get a ride

Elton John





I've been meaning to post a photo of this suit for AGES - I love it!! Although, I think I look a lot like Elton John wearing it. 

Today everyone has been talking about Katy Perry's fashion disaster at the Muchmusic Awards at the weekend. But, is it just me who thinks that she looked amazing?! I mean who else could rock a look like that. I think that all the hater were just jealous of her. Let me know what you thought of it.

Back Stage at Swarovski Show









I came across these photos today from last week's Scottish Fashion Awards. This is the Swarovski show that I was working at. You can see in the back stage photos just how un-model-like I am!! The show and the stage looked so goos and all the hard work was definitely worth it - don't the models look gorgeous? 

Today I dressed up for summer and in true Scottish tradition, it started to rain. However it was a good chance to get a photo of my new Lulu Guinness umbrella which is super fun because it is a bird cage. 

I hope that Monday hasn't treated you too badly!

The Sad Sale Day



I have been waiting for weeks for the Selfridges sale to start because I have had my eye on this gorgeous Michael Kors bag but it was just too expensive full price. The sale started today but by the time I checked my emails it had sold out - I could have cried. It is definitely time to get an iPhone or something so I can read my sale emails on the go. 
On the plus side, we are having a denim event at work this weekend, which is brilliant because today we got loads of new MiH stuff which I am in love with. It is always the way, new season stuff always looks so amazing and exciting when there is a sale on next to it.

Sun and Rain





I was convinced it was going to rain today but it turned out to be really sunny. So here I am wearing both sunglasses and a rain coat - classic Scottish weather... On the plus side these buttercups matched my jacket beautifully. 
I went sale shopping today - can you believe the sales have started already?! I went into Harvey Nichols,  after all I received THAT invite and got a cute little t-shirt but was slightly disappointed by the rest of the sale. 
Anyhoo, that's all for today, except, how lovely does my sister look in this photo!?

Scottish Fashion Awards 2012



The Scottish Fashion Awards took place yesterday. Lindsay Campbell and myself were running around like crazy to make sure that the show ran smoothly and that all our models looked beautiful. 
The event was huge this year, with around 3000 people attending and Alexa Chung hosting. After running around all day we got to attend the after show dinner with all the other 'VIPs' which was very exciting and a great excuse to wear a gown! 
So here are some photos of Lindsay and I after a VERY long day at work!

Swim Time


After 2 weeks of being ill, I am properly out and about again - yay! This morning we had a model fitting for the Scottish Fashion Awards which take place tomorrow. Then this afternoon I went swimming, so obviously had to wear my Black Milk bones swimsuit. Here I am, dancing my way to the swimming pool. Winner.

Vivienne Westwood Shoes



The Scottish Fashion Awards are being held in Glasgow on Monday. Myself and Lindsay Campbell are doing the styling again this year. I needed some shoes to wear with the dress that I'm wearing to the award ceremony - these are the Vivienne Westwood beauties I got. I swear I now want a pair in every colour.

Lovely Corgi...


Today's outfit isn't my typical kind of outfit. This afternoon my mum and I hosted a diamond jubilee party - it was so brilliantly tacky. I thought that this corgi t-shirt was just stunning and had to have it... 

Black Milk had a launch today where they re-released some old but classic pieces- return of the cling. I had had my eye on their 'great wav'e leggings for ages so was very excited about the launch. Sadly, because of time differences it meant that my friend Hazel and I were up at 5am to purchase our new leggings - what a start to the day.

I don't think I'll list where this outfit came from today as I doubt anyone is after this gorgeous 
corgi t-shirt...

Feeling Good





Well today is the first time I have got dressed in a week, I have been in bed with the flu so I am sorry for the lack of posting. 
My singing teacher told me that I had to start recording my singing practices. So today I did just that, and I have uploaded it for you to have a listen. Please ignore my terrible piano playing and the bad quality of the recording but it's just for fun anyway. Feeling Good is absolutely one of my favourite songs of life. I couldn't even tell you which version I love most, Nina Simone, Muse or Michael Buble, I think that they are all amazing. So, I thought I would have a wee go at singing it myself. I'm performing at a concert in a few weeks and need to think of something to sing, this is definitely a contender.
