Finished dip dye!

It faded after the first day, so it's currently baby pink which is quite nice! I'd recommend it, but one warning- IT'S ADDICTIVE! I kept adding more streaks!

So my last post spoke about results day, and I have to say, I'm very please with my GCSE results! I'm over the moon about English; I got and A in Language, and and A* in Literature :)

Reading Festival was also amazing, I'll be doing a post on that later on!

Has anyone else received GCSE or A Level results?

not strictly dip dye


But after that, I'm off to Reading Festival, so all's good!

As I'm off to a festival tomorrow, I thought I'd dye a few strand of hair pink, because, if you cant do it at a festival, where can ya do it?!

I'm waiting for it to dry at the moment, but when it is, I'll post some pictures :)

I used La Riche semi-permanent in Flamingo Pink

All my usual clothes are in the wash, so today I had to make do with something lying in the bottom of my wardrobe.

I wore a pair of jeans- I haven't worn jeans in about two years, and tbh I was surprised they still fit! I teamed the jeans with a 'Cure In Orange' band tee from my mums old stuff.

I didn't notice at the time, but I'm looking a bit orange too- this tan has chose to stick around a little longer *yay* !

IFB Project #9: What's in my bag?

At the moment I'm using a Longchamp Le Pliage (which I bought in St Tropez)- It's just the right size to carry all the necessary things!

So, just incase you're blind, I'll tell you a little bit about whats in my bag ;)

  • Rubbish Alcatel phone
  • Purse ( with about 21p in it atm)
  • My RayBabies- Rayban Wayfarers; even though it's raining in London, I like to be optimistic!
  • Bite Card. This gives me discounts of food at train stations, probably the most important card I own!
  • Moon Care and ChapStick. I used to use Cherry Carmex religiously, btu I've found if you use it for too long you become addicted and your lips dry out quickly!
  • Bodyshop hand cream testers

Ofc, there's also a lot of sweet wrappers and dirt in my bag... but you guys didn't need to see that now, did you?

Follow me on twitter! I'm a new addict, give me a tweet and I'll be sure to follow back :)

Smells Like Teen Spirit

If you're a fan of Urban Outfitters, it'll be no surprise to you that they have a Kurt Cobain collection for A/W- inspired by grungey nineties wool jumpers and checked shirts.

Nirvana have always been a big inspiration to me, even though I wasn't even born when they were a band! I've always loved grunge 90's fashion, and Dave Grohl is the reason I play drum kit!

Dipdyed, bleached, braided or messy hair is a must! As are flannel shirts, band tees, and plenty of string bracelts.

But for me, the key to getting 90's grunge style perfected is being able to wear something without caring about being judged. If you're confident with what you're wearing it'll show through, creating an effortlessly cool 90's look!

What I Wore: Saint Tropez

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my previous two posts. The London riots have thankfully calmed down now, there are just police everywhere now! As promised, WIW in St Tropez! You can probs see how my skin colour has changed too! I'm pretty orange at the moment! 
Feel free to ask where I got the clothes, it'll take to long to label!

Thanks for all the comments on my previous post! I had an amazing time in St Tropez! I was heartbroken, however, when I returned to London as I found terror and violence. As you probably know, London at the moment is home to riots and chaos- once again, a small minority of London youth have managed to fit the stereotype of "idiotic selfish thugs". It makes me really angry and ashamed to be a teenager in London.

I will reply to all of your comments and do a post on Saint Tropez soon, I promise! It's just so hectic where I live atm and I don't feel that I'm writing to the best of my ability.

Here are my Twitter posts on the riots
