Giant Drag at The Fleece
I am extremely excited about Glastonbury. This year I managed to get a ticket with my boyfriend, I think the main reason was having good internet this time. I’ve been three times before, twice it rained a lot and the other time the temperature was at a record high! I was there the year the whole place got flooded, it was still awesome though.
I took these pictures the other day. The sunglasses are from Topshop, I love them so much! I really like the 60’s style and the colour is luscious. I thought I’d clash the colours a bit with a bright blue nail polish (Chanel Bel-Argus, £1.50 from a charity shop!) and a red lipstick from Topshop.
Summer’s nearly here!
It’s been a while since I’ve updated, due to the fact I did manage to land myself a full time job! I work for 71 Queens, a clothes shop based in Bath and Bristol, and I do the marketing/social media/website maintenance for them at the moment. I’m so happy to be employed and doing something I really enjoy! Check out the website at www.71queens.com
I love Autumn, I love the colours, the fashion and I do like the weather unless its rainy and grey. But lets face it you can get that all year round, we live in the UK! It’s the crispy, sunny days when all the leaves are yellow and red that I like. Today I went up to Leigh Woods in Bristol for a walk around. I’m afraid I’ve got to the age where if I go out for a few drinks on Friday, I’ll probably still be feeling a bit rough on the Sunday as well as the Saturday, so fresh air seemed a good idea. That makes me sound really old…

I am on the look out for the perfect Winter coat at the moment, and I keep changing my mind on the kind of thing I want. Do I want a suede coat with sheepskin, or a smart boxy one… or a soft fluffy one? For now I’ve got a pleather jacket, but it’s getting colder and colder, and that won’t keep me warm when I’m on my way to work for long.
At the moment I’m listening to King Tuff, Drenge and Disclosure. I’m really late getting on the Disclosure bandwagon, I didn’t like that Latch song at first but they’ve grown on me so much. Here’s some tunes.
On Wednesday I went to see Giant Drag on their farewell tour at The Fleece in Bristol. I have loved this band since their first album came out when I was just 16 years old, about eight years ago. The album ‘Hearts and Unicorns’ is still something I play regularly, I love it. I’m not going to describe it to you because I’m not a music reviewer and I’ll just sound like a dick. Here’s one of my faves.
The gig was awesome, and I can’t believe it was so long ago that the album came out! It’s really sad that they’re not going to be making music anymore, but maybe Annie will have a solo career or something? Here are some pictures I took of Annie Hardy.
I should be uploading more to my photography page soon which is –
Hope you like them, and please let me know what you think. I’m always open to shooting any bands live so if you need a photographer and you play in a band or solo, hit me up! I’m based in Bristol and my email is-
I have acquired a fan and some cooling spray since the last post which means I no longer feel on the verge of passing out from the heat!
The other day I got my hair cut (finally)! I don’t miss having long hair yet, but I know I’ll start to get jealous of people with longer locks than me soon. It’s just inevitable, even though I love my shorter much more easier to manage style. Having long hair is fun because you can do so much with it, but mine was so damaged I had to get rid of it. I dye my hair blonde when I can and the ends weren’t taking to the dye anymore. Next on the to do list is dying my hair the colour I actually want it! My hairdresser offered to do this for me next time I come in. To give you an idea of the colour, here’s a pic of Marina and the Diamonds with more or less what I want.
Yesterday me and my friend Alice had a budget night in, drinking left over beers in the garden and watching Deep blue sea (such an underrated movie!?!?) on the telly.
I’ll leave you with a song a really like at the moment by Temple Songs, a new band from Manchester.
Hello again. I am so jealous of everyone going to Glastonbury! I could not stop setting myself up for disappointment this year where Glastonbury tickets were concerned. Firstly I tried to get one when they first went on sale, ignoring the fact our internet connection in Southampton was the slowest ever. I didn’t get a ticket. That was bad enough, but then I decided I was going to give it a shot at the resale. That might have been fine but I quickly realised I couldn’t afford it and sort of half tried to get one, knowing that if I did I would be EXTREMELY poor. I didn’t get one again… which I was sort of glad about. After that I entered a couple of competitions…. it didn’t happen.
I’ve just spent the last of those Topshop vouchers finally 🙂

I’ve just moved out properly from my house in Southampton. This means I have a ton of crap that I don’t know whether I want or not lying around my room. Still, it’s looking a lot better than it did after I had a little revamp.
… and here’s my cat looking cute
As I write this I am hungry. What shall I eat? I’m trying to cut down on cheese, as I do tend to put it in everything, although I could do worse. Apparently dairy can make you more intelligent, because it has Iodine in it. So that’s good I suppose. I’ll hold on to that fact.
At the moment I’m looking for a full time job, and there doesn’t seem to be any that provide more than an 8 or 16 hour contract a week. Either that or they’re all temporary! Frustration.
Putting the dairy and job stuff aside, here’s some fashion for you! This is one of my favourite dresses from Romwe and my all time favourite shoes from Underground.
The lip stick is from Topshop and the shade is called ‘Arcade’.
I have been lusting after some rings from www.emptycasket.com. Empty casket (if you don’t already know) is an online jewellery store, everything is hand made with a ‘grungey vibe’. Here are some of my favourites….
