The Hamptons//Babydoll shoot

While I was in Nice I got the super awesome chance to shoot my dear friend Fleur with the super awesome camera I got for crimbo. There's not much I can say about these photos but we bought a load of rainbow-coloured makeup and random accessories in a €1 store and I kinda went crazy. So here they are, a small collection of photos born out of a month of intensive heat with very little to do.



This was our first shoot EVER, and all the photos went straight onto instagram (hence the weird format). Fleur pretty much broke my internet with these so I figured, who doesn't wanna see a little amateur photography once in a while?

TOP: La Perla
SKORT: Model's own
SHOES: Marc by Marc Jacobs
PHONE: Moschino
BAG: Allsaints
BAG CHARM: My Little Pony (so cute!)

In between shooting 'Hamptons' and 'Babydoll', we had a weirdo makeover party, and Fleur's gonna hate me for sharing this but we discovered that eyeshadow + clear lipgloss = way cool glossy eyes


We were much more prepared for 'Babydoll', having finally got the hang of using my camera, I did the glossy eyes one more time and spent about half and hour dipping a hairbrush into the pool and kind of flicking it at Fleur. Despite the weird 3pm lighting, I gotta say, it all worked out pretty well. Is it bad for me to say I'm kinda proud of these? 

ALL CLOTHES: Model's own

So there you have it! You can follow both me (please) and fleur on instagram, and I'll be posting more of these weirdo teen photoshoots up here soon!

Fleur: @fleurr_a

My song of the week this week is I Met You by Anna Lunoe & Flume, enjoy :)

a cloud went over when I took this one- but it's still pretty cute, right?

Snap, Crackle, Pip & Pop

Haven't we all desired more from our lives at some point? Haven't we wished for the fantastical colours of our childhood back, or to escape to some glittering and mystical planet where the light is never dull? Tanya Schultz has created the Neverland that we've all dreamed of from time to time, and her artwork is as delicious to the eye as it (assumedly) would be to eat.
Tanya describes her pieces as "joyful wonderlands filled with exquisite detail and fantastical surprises", exploring "the idea of paradise and wish-fulfilment as told through folk-tales, mythologies, children's stories, video games and cinema".

'sweet sweet galaxy'
"I hope that something from childhood stays with everyone. It’s the part of us that responds to seeing something beautiful or magical, like snow for the first time or a starry night sky in the desert. I want to transport the audience to another place or time."

'i love that you love what i love'
"I really love stories about paradise and imaginary worlds, but especially stories of lands made of food. It’s an ancient kind of fantasy that exists throughout many cultures. There’s the French mythological Land of Cockaigne, a place where sugar rains from the sky and the streets are paved with pastries; or Big Rock Candy mountain, a hobo's idea of paradise; or Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory."

'we miss you magic land'
"I use thousands of materials; glitter, modelling clay, pompoms, pipe-cleaners, beads, wire, plastic flowers, aquarium plants, anything that is colourful, sweet or magical in some way. I also collect strange little things when I travel, like miniature mushrooms from Amsterdam, fake birds from Hong Kong, and tiny cakes from Japan. Japan is my favourite place to source materials."

'seeing forever'
I wish i could live in one of these.. Or maybe just eat it...

Kitsch Bitsch mini-edit

less than a week into the weirdo project that I've affectionately named "Kitsch month", I've managed to delve deeper into the universe of magical pastel rainbow unicorns and basically ended up shopping for stuff like my little pony and blythe dolls for about 4 hours. From this I came up with the idea of using blythe dolls for my next edit, and I gotta say, they look pretty good in haute couture. Keep your eyes peeled for more weird doll edits cause I think they're my favourite thing now.

My song of the day is Displaced by Azure Ray, enjoy :)

Autopsied care bears @ KITSCH MONTH

Another month in France is another month spent desperately trying to escape the intensive heat and keep my body temperature under 500 degrees. However, it's also another month spent on my laptop on a fairly regular basis; and you know what that means- BLOGGIN TIIIMEEE

I've recently discovered the tacky-rainbow-fun-ness that is the kitsch artwork, and now it's my undebated favourite thing in the universe EVER. So behold, the rest of July will now be dubbed KITSCH MONTH.

Prepare for a good 3 weeks of (hopefully) fairly regular blog posts featuring cool kitsch artists, photos, fashion and people.

Up first: Autopsied care bears- complete with vital organs and skulls intact.

Ever wondered what's inside your favourite care bear/other miscellaneous cuddly toy? Do they really have a huge heart filled with love or is it just your average lump of bloody muscle with some lungs and a rib cage? Jason Freeny has figured it all out for you, and he's even left one half of the characters intact for mega-kitsch value. GIVE ME ONE OF THESE BAD BOYS NOW.

 See the full collection and shop Jason's teddy-natomy here!

My song of the week this week is Lean On by Major Lazer/DJ Snake/Mø
Don't sigh, I love Mø and this song is of great sentimental value to me

D&G in Development

It's probably become fairly clear over the last few years that I'm a massive print-whore. I love big crazy colours on everything and of course Dolce & Gabbana is one of the best brands for this. Also, development models are awesome-looking and totally jealousy-inducing for me.

So here are a few looks you would definitely see me rocking if I had a slightly better wardrobe/infinite ££££ and looked like THIS:

Annie @ IMG Development in black Dolce & Gabbana dress and long sleeved tshirt from Proenza Schouler
Sofia Rivolta @ IMG Development in Dolce & Gabbana maxi skirt, Filles A Papa tshirt and Rick Owens jacket 
Nana Strand @ IMG Development in Dolce & Gabbana skirt and McQ sweatshirt
Until the day that I magically become a super mega rich supermodel though, I'm going to sit here and cry into my empty bank account and alexander mcqueen jumper with newly acquired paint stains (this happens a lot, it's been a long day). Why life?

My song of the week this week is Go by Grimes, enjoy guyss :)

The Spirit of the Rose at Alexander McQueen AW15

So having the flu meant that I never really left the house over fashion week, but I did get a good look at some of the shows (Simone Rocha, House of Holland and Gareth Pugh). Unfortunately my longterm fave Alexander McQueen managed to slip through my kleenex-clutching fingers, but thanks to the lords of the internet, I got to see it a short while later, and boy was it magnificent.

There was a definite Victorian/Elizabeth I type-thing going on here, what with all the backcombed victorian-spinster-hair a la Miss Havisham. The whole dark, romantic, gothic mood was contrasted with sheer maxi-dresses and cutouts which meshed quite nicely. I've always loved the witchy way of dressing and oh god those maxi dresses. Just. Look.

Sarah Burton, you are God.

My song of the week this week is 27 Club by Chloe Black, enjoy :)
