BEACHBEACHBEACH! ♥

With the sun sticking around I decided to hit the beach with one of my closest friend, Poppy :). It was a beautiful day, I even managed to top up the tan, have a cheeky portion of chips (at the beach, it's a must!) and buy some rather cute shell bracelets on tye-dyed string with the cutest little beads, and a sea blue wooden owl charm necklace... IT'S THE CUTEST! With three sea shell bracelets and my little owl necklace coming in at £5 altogether I was one happy, happy lady! It was a perfect beach day, here's the snaps. Peace & Love, happy SUMMER!

♥ NEW HAIR. (sort of...)

GOSH! With this weather gradually lightening up my hair I decided to dye it. My hair naturally bleaches in summer to a 'dirty blonde' colour, but my skin is naturally olive, especially in summer and I have dark eyes and eyebrows so I thought I needed a colour to compliment that. Despite the fact that I really bloody love red hair, I had this sinking feeling that it wouldn't suit me, though alas I tried a brand new colour it's like a dark brown with the really slightest, softest hint of red it's given my hair a beautiful shine. I went out last night ofcourse, feeling like a rockstar. Honest to god, my hair needed a lift it's so thick and long, almost lifeless I had to revitalise it, it's definately been sexed up. Also, contrary to his own original beliefs the boyfriend actually is really into the new shade as well so yes it did well all round! I lightly (and I mean very lightly) tanned so I didn't look to drawn out, to finish it off I put on a fitted, short, navy velvet dress teamed with matching silky navy heels and silky SMOOOTH legs. That's always a must. Alright guys, here are the pictures of my new do aha ENJOY.

"I'm sorry young man, I cannot be your friend. I do not believe in a fairytale end."♥

It is you...

You, who turns my world around.
Ok, so I wanted my eyelashes to stand out the most here (without the use of false ones!) I kid you not those are my own lashes, darkened a tad. I swept back my hair into a 1950's inspired men's style, kept my foundation light for a paler look and went all out on the blusher to create a pinched cheek look. I wanted it very fresh, almost doll-like. I've softened the colours a little, and put a light blur on the photograph over all.

And so the work... begins.

AH. I have started my revision. Well... kind of. I printed out things! That counts... right? Psychology, actually the most understated science of them all, but I want a better understanding of all the peoples :) yes, it'd be nice to know what people are thinking (they don't tell you this in psychology BUT...) it's an interesting thing to studies with SO MANY THINGS TO REMEMBER. ohm.

OHM! Sweet memories...

MEMORIES. I just found a load of pictures from the first holiday I took without my parents. We went to stay in our friend's lovely house in a small part of rural France. It was beautiful and we were left to our own devices for afew weeks. We even managed to fit in a spot of camping. It was such a long tiring journey and I tell you something I have never looked forward to a whole meal so much and FERRY FOOD has never tasted better. Possibly the best holiday ever? Why yes, ofcourse! As us girls named it...

♥ Summer is coming!

I decided to try and snap the beauty of the first hot day I've seen this year! Again I'm in one of my boy's shirts, as they're just so darn comfy and look good over any outfit because to me they are so effortlessly cool. I'm quite a lucky girl, as he lets me 'keep' most of his wardrobe. This snap was taken off of my balcony and makes me feel all summery inside, it was just after I'd walked home, I'm wearing minimal make up and my hair's slept on, but it's all in the name of boho, right? haha. I can't actually wait to finish my first year of college and then have this beautiful weather everyday... it's going to be heavenly.

MY STYLE QUEEN, AGYNESS DEYN ♥

ohm. The lovely Agyness Deyn. It must be said she is my favourite model! She has the undeniable edge, and that crop is to die for! Shame I'm too stubborn and anxious to get my unruly tresses chopped. I think she's my personal icon because of her musical edge, 'I don't care' attitude, and free/slightly dirty hippie-esque look. Agyness has a beautiful face, and has the boyish chic look down to a T, still managing to look effortlessly flawless. She reminds me of a beautiful boy, but someone how manages to be all the more feminine. One day I'd like to be the person who designed the clothes she wears, that would be lovely. Or even if I managed to take her photograph one day, she is truly awesome. Anway, the gorgeous Agyness Deyn.

Isn't she lovely.

Workhouse Festival Llanfyllin.

Now, being just a 'small town girl' surrounded by countryside, and on the border of Wales, I have the great task of occupying myself. I have never been to a concert... Yes, never. I have been to only one gig, and only one festival. It's a quiet life. It's not that I don't want to go to these things it's just I never really have the money or the transport, anyway I'm digressing. Basically, my one little festival is called the Workhouse Festival. It's in a little Welsh town called Llanfyllin Wales' most eclectic boutique festival. Basically, A GIANT HIPPIE FEST! It's a lovely experience: freedom, weird and wonderful music, more mud than sky, lots of amazing looking, smelling, talking people. and VANS, lots and lots of classic VDUBS and clapped out bangers. Magical. The food's amazing too, it's a festival big on being eco-friendly, so everything's renewable, recycled and the whole thing runs on solar power! I sound like an advert, but seriously it's such a different way of life something I liked a tiny sample of just for that weekend. They were trying to save the Workhouse (the poor worker's house, it has historical value to the country!) Anyway, it's all over, after 4 years of running, the whole things finished as they've managed to buy the Workhouse and our turning into all sorts: an art expedition room, rooms for classes, workshops, art and youth projects. I'm really glad they managed to do it, but sososo sad it's gone!
Here are some of my favourite snaps from 2009's Festival:


What an odd pair! The ones on the ends are quite weird too ;)

Speaking of pairs, it must be a stripey sock, bestfriend kinda thing when you can wear two pairs over eachother, oh YES. We've got the festival fashion down, one word, it's got to be: FUN.

But... there shall be no Workhouse 2010 :(
In the true spirit of the festival, a dance night was hosted to say goodbye to the festival and a party is going to be held which hopefully I'll be attending :) So it's not all doom and gloom, though I wish I'd got a ticket to go the Reading instead, I'm missing out on... BLINK 182. Enough said!

Here are some shots from the Workhouse Eclectic Dance Night May 1st 2010


Media project - PARANOIA the very exciting film clip :)

Ok, so I study English Literature, Media and Psychology at college. My Media college project thisa year was to make a thriller/horror film opening. That was the brief, pretty loose so we had plenty of room to get creative! This is mine and my friend Tom's project. Hope you enjoy it! :) Thought it would be nice for you to know what's been consuming most of my time these past months!

London Calling.

LONDON! The boy (my Joshua) and I recently took a trip to London. Although the weather didn't fair too well it was a lovelovelovely week. We indulged in what the city had to offer; including my major down fall (shopping!) We also went and saw a few shows on the West End like Hairspray which was incredible, one of the Actors was a dude from the music sensation THE MONKEYS. I constantly had my camera pressed in my hand there were just too many perfect photo oppurtunities for me to let them pass by! Even though I only live in a teeny tiny town in the Midlands, this wasn't my first trip to London, but it was the first with my favourite person, we had a sheerly amazing time (including running around HAMLEY'S like 5 year olds) Here's a few shots...







...so I throw on my boyfriend's clothes and grab a camera.











My lovely boy's old Abercrombie tee, with my vintage floral cropped shirt underneath (it was my mother's when she was my age) with my key necklace. A cute little cliche 'the key to my heart' throw in Kurt Cobain's biography and my beloved shoe boots, and we have a picture.

Upclose and Personal.




and here Ladies&Gentlebeans is my rather odd shaped face (unable to define), upclose and personal.
