Black


A series of self-portraits to document my bravery in wearing black lipstick. I don't know why, but it felt very liberating to go out like this, I felt like people noticed it when I walked down the street, in a not totally uncomfortable way but just in a different way. And a lovely transvestite came rushing over to me in Boots to compliment me on it and ask where it was from :3 
I bought it from Illamasqua, if anyone else is wondering! It's beautiful and matte, but is quite difficult to apply and takes quite frequent (every few hours) re-application if you want the colour to remain solid. However the pigment is high quality and really really jet-black, so worth the money.
Dark as night kisses to you all xo

WHAT THAT CUTE GIRL IN TOWN WAS WEARING




So it's 2013 - Happy New Year! - and I literally cannot wait to get stuck in. The Christmas season is all a bit weird and tiring after a while... Everything feels so much fresher afterwards, like balance has been restored or something. Also, it was my 22nd birthday yesterday (I'm gonna post up some photos from the day here soon) and I feel a bit like shit's just got serious? 
I still feel the same but like, I'm graduating this year. I'm 22. I am a real adult person. I want to dedicate my time to doing the things that I love, the things I want to learn, the things I want to get better at, and I feel like I'm on the brink of a new chapter, and I just want to get out there and meet inspiring people and pursue my dreams. 
ANYWAY. I'm getting carried away. Right here right now it's January and I'm in the middle of a revision death, but I can't help getting excited about the lengthening hours of daylight. We're moving towards Spring and (hopefully) fewer layers! So here are a couple of Springy, coatless outfits that I am looking forward to wearing when the weather is a little warmer. The black toned ensamble, above, was inspired by this girl I saw in Brighton a while ago. She was wearing something pretty much exactly like this and it just looked so cute, so yeah, I'm slowly replicating her style down to the very last detail haha. I can't find a single pair of high-waisted shorts on the high street that fit me properly though; I've tried Topshop, Urban Outfitters, H&M, River Island, Next... Nothing works. I must have very strange hip > waist proportions.
The look below is a more colourful experience, albeit slightly overpowered by some bold double denim. I'm looking for a new denim jacket too, actually - I sold mine last year and am slightly regretting it now...

P.S. I no longer have dreadlocks.
