M: Over the weekend I tie-dyed some clothes in preparation for my very good friend Daisy Jean’s birthday party - I was pretty pleased with the results.

Daisy’s party was 90’s themed, a theme which applied to the clothes, food, decor and music quite strictly.
Spice Girls, Will Smith, Haddaway, Livin Joy, Blur, Oasis, Aqua, Backstreet Boys, No Doubt… Absolute nostalgic brilliance. We finished the night off with a very drunken rendition of Aerosmith - I dont wanna miss a thing and huddled under blankets to watch Clueless.

R: Secret Cinema

I was advised by a friend to go to one of the Secret Cinema experiences some time ago but I have yet to actually go!
The video above is from Bugsy Malone - one of my fave films growing up.

M: Last Friday, I went to The New British party at Manero’s on Kingsland Road.
I had such a fun night - the music, crowd and venue were all great!
To top it off, on the way to an after party at Rachael Betty Rose’s pad I was also given this gorgeous (brand new) Three Floor dress! 

(It must have been law of attraction or fate or something as it was in my size and fits perfectly! )

CATCH Lace Insert Mini Dress - £68.00
Easy day-to-night dress with precision lace placement and understated style.

R: I always like a bit of high street to mix with my vintage bits and bobs. Here I am wearing my fave mustard ‘lazy day’ jumper that I usually accompany with a shirt and mixed pendant accessories.
Also, a new find - These awesome 50’s inspired checkered trousers, that I’m absolutely in love with! Both from H&M (I’m very keen on a lot of their clothes this season!)

M: Over the easter break, Maeve Kavanagh and I escaped to her parents beautiful house in Chez Veillon, Verdille, Charente (France) for a week.
We spent the majority of our time doing wholesome activities like bike riding and long country walks, playing table tennis and pool - but did make an emergency trip into the city for some much needed cocktails!
As most of the food and drink we had came fresh from the local farmers and vineyards, we ate very well and very french which was a lovely change from going to the supermarket. We only ate what was currently in season and what was in season was delicious!
I also tried the local ‘Pineu’ wine, it was… interesting? Not bad but definitely not to my taste - it was like a very sweet dessert wine.

Unfortunately we had to come back early due to work and uni etc but I would have happily stayed for another few weeks! Will definitely be heading back in the summer when the pool is finished!

M: Lana Del Rey - Blue Jeans I never really got all the Lana Del Rey hype but in fairness I’d never really given her much of a chance so Luis Frost (who is a superfan - ‘in Lana we trust’ were his words exactly) added her ‘Born To Die’ album to my ipod so I could see what all the fuss was about.
Its all quite similar sounding and like most albums there are a few songs that I wouldn’t really consider to be worth listening to but overall I’m a L.D.R convert. Not only is she incredibly beautiful but Ive been absolutely loving her breathy, feminine vocals non-stop for the past few days - especially on ‘Blue Jeans’, by far my favourite track.

M: Let’s all just stop for a moment and take some time to laugh at other people expense.
I present to you 'Pale Is The New Tan', the blog that is devoted to mocking monstrous tanning fails. 



How on earth these people think this is an acceptable look is beyond me, however they have provided me with a good 20mins of entertainment… Enjoy!

R: I realise it’s almost summer, but i’m always a fan of a good pair of socks peeking out of some über cool ankle boots/sandals/whatever. I am also a huge fan of Vivienne Westwood. So these Skull & Orb socks, priced at £18 maybe squeezing their way into my sock draw very soon…
