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.

M: At Friday night / Saturday morning’s after party, Rachael and I decided to put on these Kigu’s - Which in my intoxicated state always confuses me and causes me to behave like a toddler, rolling around and dancing like Baloo (The Jungle Book bear) because only babies should really wear a onesie.
Regardless, I enjoy acting my shoe size and not my age so have decided I wanna buy one of these!
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! )

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!
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.
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…
