Cow Print Co Ord of Ma Dreamz / Slam Dunk Festival

Last year co ords were huge, partly because they do look so sick!!! I bought this last year as two separate pieces because I wanted a cow print co ord so badly and not one that was super expensive. The jacket is from isawitfirst and the skirt Boohoo, but you could never tell!!

The vest is just a cheap one from Primark and then I paired this with my docs to tie it all together, I felt like a boss bish wearing this. 

So yes the lights are extra af! They are from my boyfriends stage show (he was in a band) and as we were clearing our flat I was like OMG LET USE THE LIGHTS. So things just escalated from there haa.

A week today is Slam Dunk and I am pretty sure this is what I'm going to wear because where else would I wear this. I don't really go out to places that I could wear this and not be judged. Plus docs are good incase it rains and I might take a little anorak that can fit in a small bag, as ya know I don't like getting cold.

Let me know if you are going to Slam Dunk this year!!! Im so excited!

Wahey another blog post


I bet no one expected me to come back with ANOTHER post! Just a quick appreciation post about  this dress from Nasty Gal here.

First thoughts was I look like a Priest/Nun, but I jazzed it  up with a belt and added my Dr Martens and felt bare goth, but also cool af. 

Just to break up the black I added my blue leather jacket which I thought was fab. I went for a bottomless brunch on Saturday and wore it, its perfect for eating and drinking in because its a stretchy tshirt material - the perfect combo.

This isn't something I would normally wear but I am trying to push myself out of my comfort zone, at the minute my wardrobe feels so boring. 

Also at the end of the month its Slam Dunk Festival, is anyone headed to that? Im so excited because a band I have loved for over 10 years is playing and I am absolutely going into the pits.

Wow its been far too long


Wow its been ages, just thought I would give you an update on whats been going on.

These snaps are actually from last year, and since my lovely rabbit tattoo ive had quite a few more which is sick, my right arm is filling up nicely!

Last year was a mad, I cannot even. If my 15 year old self only new, she would be shooketh.
I spent it in my local tat shop as an apprentice. The opportunity was incredible, I absolutely loved working with the people there. But my confidence (lack of) got the better of me and it started having a negative impact on how I was feeling, so unfortunately had to pack it in. I wont go into it too much but quitting has lifted a weight off my shoulders. A positive is that no bridges have been burnt and I still love Emma (she was my mentor). Check out her Instagram here, her tattoos are fire. Also check out her fiances new cafe Monstera Canteen, he is building it from scratch, also its vegan and all made by him which is sick, you wont regret it.

Moving forward, I do need a 'creative outlet' as I work in an office which is obvs very business and not arty. SO I want to start actually blogging again, like often and not say i'm going to blog then go MIA for a year lol.  
I don't really know what I can offer in a blog, but ya know a gal can try. 

First off a couple bits I have done recently. Obvs the first one is inspired by the kween Ari and the second was is inspired by my love for avocados. I defo want to keep drawing and maybe in the future create prints (only if people are interested). 

I also have a tshirt brand here, please go have a browse on the insta if you have a sec, I need to pull my finger out and make more though. This is my issue, I focus on something then it fizzles out. I am determined to actually roll with my blog and tees this year because I do love it, but I leave the house at 7.15am and get back at around 7pm for work, so motivation can be low, gonna try and turn over a new leaf though (hopefully). If you have any fun blog suggestions to read, fashion, music, home decor, art, then please let me know. I used to read so many and LOVE IT. 

If you have made it this far, thank you for reading and I apologise for my terrible writing skills haha!
