Oh and also, here are some of the cakes I have been practicing making recently :)

Lilies and Lace

I have recently become infatuated with the Louis Vuitton SS2012 collection, and the Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week. The collection has everything (no exaggeration!) I've been loving this Spring - pastels and whites, laces and organza, big floral collars, and almost everything sheer. A really magical,  innocent, sugar-coated sort of style - fairies crossed with 50s diners. The show looked like it would have been breathtaking - the models came out on a glittering caraousel in a 'pale wonderland'. The whole thing seems to have a sort of eery elegance, which is actually what I like about it. The combination of grapefruit florals and glowing pale blues and whites, seem to make a beautiful, mystical transition from Winter all the way through to a warm Summer.

Romantic Rights

This was me today before I realised I was still very sick and had to go back to bed... but I thought I would show you what I was wearing anyway, and decided to put the outfit on lookbook as well. The dress is a vintage one off ebay, with the length altered, and the hat and necklaces are from Miss Selfridge :) I was feeling very Summery and am sad I cannot go outside and play in the sun today...

ciao for now x

Bought a redonkulous skirt. Never going to say redonkulous again. Don't know when or where I will wear this beauty but I think I've gone slightly mad. Tonight is a night of firsts...

On another note, I have been having obscene desires towards anything galaxy print for a while now (mainly black milk leggings and strange morph bodysuits) so am very pleased to have finally given in. I also was wanting a sheer maxi skirt so this ticks both the boxes, yes yesssss.

I feel a bit silly doing this because I've never done it before, and I feel like a bit of a bellend for just standing there haha. But this is my first actual outfit post, tadaaaa!
Finally got round to wearing my ebay purhcased topshop shorts which I looove even though I have to pin them at the sides. Also have a picture of me trying on some things I loved today. I bought the skirt but couldn't afford the black top (boooo). Not sure what else to say, so enjoy!

Part Two

This is part two of yesterdays post, which was too long and I was too tired to finish at the time, apologies. I also apologise in advance for not being able to construct coherent sentences...

I thought I should write a bit about seeing Laura Marling at the Southampton Guildhall (third time!) which as always, was lovely. Although she is very sweet and endearing and her voice is always amazing to listen to, I don't think anything could ever beat seeing her at Winchester cathedral. The setting of the cathedral was perfect, a really unique setting for a concert, especially as it has always been one of my favourite places in Winchester. I've met great people there, had first kisses there, explored the secret gardens and waited for work to be over. The acoustics, as you can imagine, were phenomenal and the whole atmosphere was actually a little chilling, but this just seemed to add to the music. I actually went to have a proper look inside the cathedral at the weekend and never realised how big it was! Biggest nave in Europe apparently, for anyone who is interested... Anyway, I'm talking about the wrong concert now, but basically Miss Marling blew me away once again. I was equally happy at the time because I had just purchased 109 more tealights (only enough for four weeks apparently...) and a little mouse called Beanie.

I thought I had a lot more to speak about but I've completely forgotten now...instead, have some more music I've been listening to lately..

All New People


I know I said last time that I would be better at this blog, but this time I really mean it. Not very much has been happening lately that I feel like writing about, apart from the previously mentioned beautiful weekend. Saturday the 25th February - possibly one of the best days I have had in a very long time.

The day started off leaving at 7am to go to London Fashion Weekend at Somerset House. I was really excited to go seeing as I missed it last year, and always really love looking at the new fashion and being really envious of the people who can afford it. It was slightly smaller than it usually is but I think it made up for it in terms of quality! Personal favourites exhibiting included Antipodium (loads of beautiful sheer, pale dresses and shirts), Holly Fulton (Just incredible pieces, see pictures!!), Underwear designer whose name I can't remember (beautiful high wasited frilly, silk and lace pieces), Kusmi Tea (yum), Vintage Moschino (amazing patterns and colours that I always love), sample sales from Cheap Monday, and this really great designer who I had never heard of but whose name I have forgotten argh (black dresses with jangly bits). I also kept coming across stalls with some amazing vintage (expensive) sunglasses, and am kicking myself for not noting down some of the more memorable bits. There was also a jewellery brand which was equally amazing two years ago, called Les Nereides (store in covent garden I think) with really quirky unusual pieces, including necklaces with tiny dolls, glitter and eyeballs on them... Unfortunately I can't remember many of the designers (awful memory) but there were some lovely things and a lot of it was surprisingly afforable. I was even happier to come away with my own Antipodium dress :) It's pale pink, midi and sheer with a high collar and a caterpillar print - I'll hopefully remember to post photos soon. I also got attacked by a very camp man spritzing a juicy couture perfume by the door (Viva la Juicy) and I'm not a fan of Juicy Couture at all usually but this perfume was just loverrrrly. mmmmmm. I'm going to try and root around for the designers cards and leaflets and try and get back to you with the names!

After leaving London Fashion Weekend after about two hours, I had to rush off to Leicester Square. For the best reason ever. Really. It was the day of Zach Braff's play that Izzy had booked tickets for, 'All New People'. It was a really small theatre but this actually made it feel much nicer, and the play itself was just great. I love Zach Braff's writing and he had once again outdone himself, 'All New People' was very very funny but also with some really interesting and unique thoughtful parts, some great one liners too. I really loved 'Garden State' and I think the play had a very similar style. The mixture of projecting film onto screens as well as the live actors was a really different idea and worked extremely well. One of my favourite lines that left me thinking for a good while after was, 'Don't worry, in 100 years there will be all new people'. The idea that in about one hundred years every single person on this Earth will be different is really strange to me. Anyway, highly recommend the play if you get a chance to see it. Now for the best part - MEETING ZACH BRAFF. Thats right (see picture haha). We queued by the stage door afterwards and he just walked out, as if he was a normal human being! It was so wonderful, he's really lovely and sweet and signed our tickets and posed with us for a photo :) One of the best moments ever. We sat down on the pavement after and cried. I'm not exaggerating, Izzy literally had tears pouring down her face. And a few moments later we saw him skip across the street infront of us too (like actually skip)..

After this busy busy morning I then met a friend for dinner, dashed home and had another friend over for Mario kart and a half-viewing of 'Eight legged freaks'. One of the best days I've had in a really long time.

I'm writing this quite a bit later and would normally post the song I am listening to at the time, but I believe at the time I was listening to this...
It's 'This Sweet Love' by James Yuill (fell in love after seeing it in the DM advert with Agnes Dean)

I've got lots more to say but not much energy left to say it with, so I will hopefully continue tomorrow.
Night xo
