OOTD // Sunshine




Dress - Tesco, Sandals - H&M, Tote - Gnarwolves, Sunglasses - from Bali

I am sure everyone is aware we are having some great weather. This means digging out this dress which I bought about 3 years ago from Tesco's for A FIVER!! I don't know about you but I love how bright and summery it is, and that it slightly resembles a picnic blanket hah. I have paired it with these sandals I recently bought fom H&M which haven't come off my feet since!

Basically when its hot I just need a light dress to prevent being extremely sweaty haha! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I am off to see Paramore tomorrow which I am so excited about! 

Thanks for reading!

P I N K B O N E S








So this is the start of something that I have found quite challenging, I am trying to create my own tshirts but its completely DIY and I am still trying to work everything out hah. These are the first three designs and I have so many more ready to roll out. These three are part of the Broken Hearts Club, we've all been there but have made it through the other end so I kinda wanted to celebrate that. They aren't perfect either and thats what I like about them and what reflects me the most hah. I am quite determined to make each tshirt myself through screen printing (I have just purchased a kit, go me hah). I feel the challenge will be more rewarding even if no one were to get one haha!! 

I am also just finalising the next three designs which is the 'Stay True' collection which i am equally as excited about!! If you are interested head over to @pinkbones on insta and give it a like. I will let you guys know when the shop is up and running.

Thank you so much for reading!

Zoe London's Festival Tag //

 I love festivals so thought it was fitting to do the tag Zoe London made here

Fan girled so hard when i met Zoe at Slam Dunk last year haha!

What was the last festival you went to?
Download 2016, was an absolutely amazing weekend, i actually made a round up video here if you want to check it out. The weather was amazing for the first two days and then friday rolled around and the heavens opened up. It didn't put a downer on the festival because I was so hyped for the bands to start. Highlights were defo the headliners Rammstein, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath and also Baby Metal, Neck Deep, Milk Teeth, and of course Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes were amazing.


Download 2016
What was the first festival you went to?
This was Reading Festival 2009 as a nervous 18 year old, however I remember having the best weekend there. So much live music all day and night is exactly what i wanted. 


Baby faced Ashleigh // Reading 2009 
Have you ever travelled abroad for a festival?
No I haven't but I would love to go to the Warped Tour in america, that would be so rad.


Download 2015 // A Day To Remember
Best headline act you've ever seen?
This is such a hard question but I would have to say Rammstein because of how theatrical their set is and all of the cool pyrotechnics and Iron Maiden are up there, they are still so energetic and their shows are just incredible. I would also add in Paramore, I saw them at reading 2014, their sound cut out but Hayley still sang without any of the music and it was literal magic hah. I am pretty sure I shed a tear.


Reading 2014
What festival would you love to go to?
It would have to be Warped Tour in America, its like pop punk heaven and also has so many more amazing bands! Plus is warm, so there wouldn't be the need to carry an anorak all the time hah.


Reading 2014
What is the next festival you're going to?
I am going to Slam Dunk south and CAN'T WAIT!! I am so excited to see Enter Shikari, they are doing a 'Take To The Skies' 10 year celebration, I cant wait to see what they have in store for us! 


Slam Dunk 2016 
Do you camp or are you a hotel kinda person?
So far I have camped, but I find it quite liberating haha, you just get up in the morning and sit in your deck chair/ the ground and maybe crack open a nice warm cider haha. Now I am older the idea of a camper van sounds way more appealing though.


Reading 2014
Share your ultimate festival lineup!
This is so hard again, it would be me listing all my fave bands. Paramore would be in the mix for sure then throw some Architects in, Limp Bizkit, The Front Bottoms, Neck Deep, Gnarwolves and probably who ever is on this Spotify playlist here.


Throw back to some of the festivals I've been to

Jacket Series // Day to Night //








PERFECT Yellow Jacket - New Look

This is the next jacket in the series and when I saw it in New Look I instantly fell in love, I had some vouchers from work so it only cost me around £5 which was perfect. Its now something I cant go out without!! This is how I would wear it casual and then dressed up. The gingham dress is from Missguided here and I think goes perfectly with the Jacket, its a such an amazing combination.

In the casual outfit, the tee is actually one of my own designs, I have printed a couple other prototypes and I cant wait to show you guys. I love them so much!!

DIY Jacket // OOTD






Jacket - Ebay +DIY, Top - H&M,  Jeans - New Look, Vans, Tote Bag - Gnarwolves


I am still loving the patch trend but didn't want to spend loads of money on a faux leather jacket when I can DIY at home for waaaay cheaper. I bought the patch from ebay for about £3 here and the jacket from ebay for under a tenner, ironing on the patch was super easy and voila patch jacket for a fraction of the price. Its so easy to do these things at home and also choose what you want on your piece of clothing and where.

Tips for iron patches:

  • make sure iron is very hot and do not use the steam function
  • cover the patch with some thin material before applying heat
  • keep iron on patch for around 30 seconds and check patch
  • turn clothing over and iron from the inside 30 seconds
  • repeat those two steps 2/3 times and it should be stuck there life


I wanted to start a series on my jackets because now its warmer I love throwing them on, I've got quite a few I want to feature including a denim jacket I have DIY'd.
I also bought this tote bag from one of my fave bands Gnarwolves, they have just released a video for their new song Straitjacket which you can watch here it reminds me of really old Green Day which I love, I am so excited for the release of their new album.

Thanks for reading!

Boutique of Molly // Florence Bag





Top & Jeans - New Look, Wallet - Skinny Dip, Sunglasses - Missguided

Boutique of Molly -Florence Bag

The lovely people at Boutique of Molly contacted me about a collaboration so of course I went straight to the website and chose this beaut little bag. Its the perfect accessory to dress up a casual outfit and is EVEN BETTER for a night out as a clutch (you can remove the strap's too) because its so big inside, I cant get over how much I can fit into this beautifully deceptive little bag. I am one of those people who likes to bring everything with me including the kitchen sink incase of emergencies hah. So not only did I fall in love with this bag because it's aesthetically pleasing its also extremely practical which isn't as glam but for someone like me I take that into account when purchasing anything.
I also chose a stunning dress which I will be featuring very soon so keep an eye out!!

Thank you so much for reading, let me know if you have/will be purchasing anything from the lovelies over at Boutique of Molly.

H&M Dress // OOTD





Dress & Boots - H&M, Necklaces - Tiffany, Stella and Dot

This is a perfect dress which can be dressed up or down plus its extremely comfortable. It was also very affordable as well. You could defo pair it with some Vans/Converse and a dark denim jacket to wear it casually during the day and jazz it up with a leather (fake) jacket and a choker for the evening. I know I will be wearing this a lot over the next couple months.

Denim Skirt // OOTD




Tee - Moose Blood, Belt - Primark, Skirt - H&M, Converse 

I feel this skirt and tee combo is such a kelly kapowski vibe!?! Its again such an easy casual outfit to put on, especially when it gets a bit hotter, I feel I will brave no tights and hope for the best though hah, plus I have just had under my knees tattooed and they are in the irritating itchy stage so its a lot easier to not have anything on them. Therefore great excuse!
