I've missed my ghd's

MUSIC: Vampire Weekend
MOOD: Regretful, if that is even a word.

Top: Internacional, Cutoffs: Vintage, Tights: gift

Lets all just laugh at my expense and at my poor creativity of what you could call a 'photoshoot'. It lacks everything one should have; A decent model, good clothes, an awesome set and er... a photographer!

I'm going to go and drink more tea, make a start on reading The Great Gatsby for the third time this year, check asos for some awesome black shoes, paint my nails and decide on an outfit for tonights 'gathering/socialevent/bbq-in-the-rain'

You'll never get to heaven if you dance like that

Hello lovers :)

I wore this to go to London after class, with my mum to go to meet Nadia about a modelling job she wants me for! I know, me a model! She's really really lovely, and I love her hair, and headscarf! Hopefully it'll be an awesome experience, floating around in swooshy dresses, with a headdress of some sort on and a few hundered balloons, outside in a park! Maybe I'll learn something new; meet some people, get a few contacts!

The most unflattering pictures I think I've ever seen of myself

I did infact wear flats, because I purchased these on the way back home, and I love them! YAY!

Shorts: Vintage Levi 501's, Vest: H&M, Boots: Random boutique, Belt: mothers, Watch: fathers, Ring: Brick Lane, Necklaces: homemade and

Thank You stranger for your therapeutic smile :)

I love pretending to be revising. But at some point, I should probably get on with some. I have my first exam next tuesday.

I'm meeting with somebody on Wednesday about a certain shoot for her Fine Art course, I don't want to give too much away. But apparantly it involves some few hundred balloons! So I guess pictures will be coming within the next month or two?

I love you beauts.

Wednesday, 5 May 2010

Eating: Nothingg
Drinking: Tea!
Listening to: Lost in the post- The Wombats, on my AWESOME new playlist
Wearing: Sixth form uniform.
Talking to: Ashton, via text; My best friends boyf.
Lusting after: MIU MIUS, My Zara boots, Gap shoes, Dr Martens... the list goes on
Reading: Apollyon- Tim Lahaye + Jerry B Jenkins
Watching: Nada.
Doing: Blogging, Tumblr, Texting, Music and am about to heat gun my textiles work for tomorrow.

Hello Beautifuls
Hope you are all doing well? let me know via Formspring yeah :)

Today, I had numerous headaches, painstakingly the heat of the heat gun and the coldness of the textiles room, did not aid this.
Our class, the great 7 of us, all being girls, have come to the conclusion, our teacher is pregnant. GREAT. Which means she'll be taking maternity leave throughout our A2 level work. Which is annoying because she did the same to our class through GCSE. We are not happy, at best. STOP shagging.

On a brighter note, my beautiful best friend, who has not yet been informed of this blog, passed her theory driving test this morning! So I'm a proud best friend!

I know, I know, you've probably seen this more than enough times, but I cannot stop lusting after the Miu Miu Spring 2010 RTW collection, it is literally making me drool and feel weak at the knees.

Favourites Excuse the photoporn.

I looooove the prints, the pretty cats and birds turn provocative naked lady, the embellishment, I am literally kissing the feet of the sequin work, and the collars, oh the collars. What I wouldn't give! On the beauty side of things, Miu Miu lets the clothes do the talking with the minimal makeup but makes up for it when it comes to hair, which I ADORE. The plaits are adorable and I want one. But my stupid curly hair, doesn't swing that way. *cries*

PS,,, :)

DANCE IN THE DARK is in for a bumpy ride and a learning curve.
I've been working on new ideas, mindmapping and spider-diagram-ing, and I've come to the conclusion; this has got to change!
I'm leaving you reeling, probably, after the promise of posts and you recieve none for a week or two.
Admittedly, I find it difficult to do outfit posts at the moment, but the line up has changed! I will do outfit posts, when and if I can. However, I've invested time into creating and designing headers and fonts, and I've decided on a series of inevitable posts per week/month, not including general rant/banter/random post.
Things like :
'RN'; which is 'Right now', what I'm listening to, wearing, eating, drinking, lusting after ect.
'WADATUUNE!!!' Current favourite song/s of the week, accompanied by a video, once I've worked html out.
'memoirs of...', this is a post of my memories, for you to get to know me a little better, a photo, usually, of a holiday, trip, special occasion.
'Uhmm... YAY OR NAY?'- being reviews or products, books, tv, anything, and I'm open to new ideas!
'Linkedy link' or 'dotcom', a post including links I've recently enjoyed.
'PICTURE', a weekly photo, or selection of photos, taken by me, either of me or of my antics.
'NEWSTAND', a selected, scanned or found article that has caught my eye in the past week to month.
'omnomnom' or 'WANTED' is in theory my wishlist!
and finally, '""' (quote marks) Quote of the week.

Hopefully I'll be keeping this up, infact, I'm going to promise it, because I'm ridiculously excited about it!


PS. Wanna chat?
