Little People in the City

I was really struggling for inspiration for my Camden project that I'm working on at uni. Last weekend I found this book called, Little People in the City. It is the work of a street artist, Slinkachu. It was like being punched in the face by inspiration. Thank you little people!

Land Rover

In the same way that I am obsessed with clothes, my dad is obsessed with Land Rovers. He has spent the last few months getting this Land Rover restored, it was originally made in 1969 so definitely needed some work. 
Today was the first time we took it on a drive and because it doesn't have power steering, driving it feels like a gym work out.

Stop Motion Vote



As I mentioned yesterday, I have been working on a stop motion fashion film.
The theme is Tourists = Money. 
So far I have been working on animated bits which will be put alongside fashion-y bits in the film. 
I would be really grateful if you would look at these 2 film clips and let me know which music you think is better for a fashion film?
P.S sorry about the film quality on here!

Tourists = Money

Today I started working on a stop motion fashion film for uni. The theme for it is, Tourists = Money. I thought I'd share a few of the photos from the film because I actually quite like them!

You're Too Old To Be So Shy

Today I have a list as long as my arm of things to do. Instead I am going to waste the day away by drinking tea, blogging and playing on Lookbook. Yes, yes good plan.

Music Blogs

I must confess that as a blogger I really only read fashion blogs. This week at uni we were asked to explore some music blogs and other than Pointless, Harsh and Long, which is written by my talented friend Andy, I don't know any. 
So obviously my first port of call was to type 'Music blogs' into Google - I don't know why I have never done this before!! So much good music, here are some of the things I have found and LOVE.

Pointless, Harsh and Long, all kinds of good - just read it. 

The Pop Cop, New Year by LAYLA is definitely worth a listen, this girl has a properly beautiful voice and is crazy talented. 

I have to confess that I am not a lover of dance/house/remixed music but exploring music blogs is to get us to listen to listen to things that we might normally avoid. New Music Blog had me listening to "No More Dubstep" House Mix. This is a perfect example of something that I would never ever choose to listen to but was surprised by how much I liked it. 

Yes, yes, yes, yes! I love this blog - Underground Hip Hop Collection Blog

Breaking More Waves is a small music blog with all kinds of hidden treasures. Thank you to this blog for introducing me to San Zhi. 

Gold Flake Paint, a brill blog with good music and photography. I would recommend listening to LIEFE - GOODBYE CHANEL. 

My band's Better Than Your Band introduced me to Lion Babe - girls dressed as lions and singing seriously cool songs. Yes really, dressed as lions. 

Lots and lots of stuff that I've never heard of and am still not 100% sure I like, but still a very interesting blog - No Fear Of Pop.

If I'm being honest, I went on this blog because I liked the name... Drunken Werewolf However, it turned out to be a great blog filled with treats like Cemeteries - Young Blood which has a great video accompanying it.

Finally,Crack In the Road, is filled with song which will make you dance, I promise. The 1975 - Chocolate and Mausi - M O V E. Do it and do it now!

Birthday Outfit

Today is my birthday, I've reached the ripe old age of 22, so thought it was only appropriate that I should wear something mature and sophisticated... or not. It's like a big feather surprise!

Classic Black and Gold

I tried this belt on before Christmas and knew I needed it in my life. So, I was a very happy bunny when I unwrapped it on Christmas morning. The only problem was that it no longer fitted because I had eaten all the cakes, cheese, sweets, chocolate, truffles, gin, wine and champagne in the world. Tricky. 
Fortunately after a week of going to the gym it fits again and I can finally wear it!

Wearing Metallic

Has anyone else taken their Christmas tree down? We took ours down today and it always leaves me feeling a little flat.
To combat my no-christmas-tree-blues, I put on some sparkly clothes. Sounds ridiculous but it really does cheer me up.

Flapper Girl Outfit

On New Year's Eve I went to a Chicago themed party, where everyone was dressed as gangsters or flapper girls. I thought that this was a difficult theme until I stumbled upon this brilliant flapper girl dress in H&M! There was only one dress, my size and perfect for the occasion. I love when things like that happen.
