Ever have one of those days when your hair just will not co-operate? No matter how much you tease it, cajole it, plead with it…It remains stubbornly flat, and in this case, refuses to beehive! After a good ten minutes of trying to whip up the 60’s style, I pinned my hair down to give my aching, backcombing hands a rest! It was then (with a bit of tweaking) I chanced upon this hairstyle, and despite having more than a hint of Princess Leia – I quite like it! With a nod to Lily Elsie, and other iconic stars of that age this style was a modern take on a very vintage style! If you would like a tutorial let me know – but I’m sure you could figure this out for yourselves! It’s so simple! These photos were taken on the steps of Joshuas old house, on the last weekend he was there. The whole time I have known Josh he’s been a ‘Number 9-er’ so it’s going to be so odd visiting him in his new flat! This beautiful 1970’s blouse I’m wearing was an eBay find, and reminded me of Pierrot and clown ruffles – it’s so much fun to wear! My lipstick (which I received a lot of questions about!) is a mixture of Topshops ‘Rio Rio’ (which is a lovely matt-textured, pillar-box red) and MACs ‘Morange’ (a very bright orangey red). The combination of the two makes quite a colourful pout! My cornflower blue nail polish is by a brand called ‘Me Me Me’ which I found whilst working at the Vitality Show earlier this year. The teeny hotpants are old Topshop ones, and the boots were from Office originally, but I nabbed my pair for a mere £5 on eBay! Score! This little outfit was worn to a street party in Brighton, where Time for T (they are practically documented on this blog lately!) where playing on a makeshift stage. I love this (albeit over-exposed) shot of Joshua and I on the day! Because one of us is always taking the photos it’s rare to get one of us together! Tiago and his band Time for T performing – I love these guys! Joshua is wearing a vintage blazer from Beyond Retro, vintage tie from an Italian flea market (from our holiday last year) and a topman waistcoat and shirt. And finally, because I’m so excited by this – I have to share with you my latest gadget! I recently took the plunge and got myself an iPhone 4 – and much as it pains me to be one of ‘those people’ who gushes about technology – this baby has changed my life! With all the travel I have to do for work (Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow last week!) there are so many apps which make my life infinitely easier! And I got an adorable Fifi Lapin (everyones favourite fashionista bunny!) cover from Iconemesis to boot! It makes texting such a pleasure! And of course, where would be the point in having an iPhone if I didn’t join Instagram?! Below are a couple of my snaps from the last few weeks, if you would like to follow the link is here – though I have to admit I’m not too sure how all this works! I promise not to leave it so long until my next post! Besides, I can’t wait to show you all what I got up to for my recent 26th birthday (arggghhh how on earth am I 26?!) Hope the constant rain isn’t getting you down!
