Garden party for two

Music, My photography

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.

Hopefully soon!

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.

Pixie Geldof in this months Elle

Fashion, Fashion photography, opinion

Elle UK magazine is probably my favourite fashion magazine. I love the photography and styling, plus the written pieces are always interesting, although I feel like they have stopped doing as many. I really loved the ‘Elle memoir’ pieces. Please don’t lose them Elle!

This months cover star is Pixie Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof and sister of Peaches Geldof. I do like Pixie’s style and I think she comes across quite well in interviews. Before reading the interview this month I admit I had struggled to pin point what her actual job is, and well lets face it, she has had a lot of opportunity come her way due to being a Geldof. However, she has this band now called Violet and I listened to one of her songs and its not awful. I quite like it.

The video was directed by Alasdair McLellan, a photographer I really love. Here are my faves from the Elle UK piece.
