Nice Hat

jacket from new look

shirt from a charity shop, white top from dunnes but cut up by me, jeans from H&M, doc martens from ebay

This is just a casual, comfy and not too warm outfit, inspired by the band Skaters.
I hope you had a nice Easter if you celebrate, and generally are enjoying half term. My granny bought me a chocolate bar that's bigger than my computer, which was cool. (In fairness my computer is pretty small)

And also, I think it's kind of weird that I never interact with my followers, so I just want you to know that I do read my comments. Sometimes I get asked questions and I'm not sure how to reply so that you'll see my answer, so sorry if I've ignored a question. And also thank you for leaving me comments, they're always so sweet and I love reading them!

Cupid, draw back your bow

I had another skateboarding accident. I'm all scraped and sore, I got sunburned and my face is kinda puffy from crying, but I think I'm styling it out. I was walking through the park yesterday crying my mascara down my cheeks, I'm really dedicated to girlmonster looks.
Hat from primark, dress from H&M, doc marten shoes. I wore this dress so I wouldn't aggravate my wounds.

Wait a minute honey, I'm gonna add it up

Some prints I did last week. Lino prints on top of random-o inky prints. The bottom one is a mono-print type thing I guess but with a sharpie drawing on top

I got a new earring for my cartilage piercing. It's a titanium circular bar bell. Titanium is supposed to be really good for piercings, because it's super unreactive, it won't tarnish, rust or cause allergic reactions. And they can colour it by passing an electrical current through, I think, which means there's no coating or plating, but I went for a plain polished one. I got it from Serenity Jewellery, and I would recommend them. It's not too dear and the postage was really quick. I've been wanting a ring like this for year and half! I think when my lobe piercing heals I'll put an endless ring in it, or maybe the same as this one, I haven't quite decided yet.

Hope you're enjoying Mid term/Easter break!

Black Magic Woman

Dress from a charity shop, tights from a charity shop, converse shoes, hat from primark

I love this dress so much, I bought it on Saturday, but I saw in the charity shop the Saturday before, but I didn't have money with me (rookie mistake, right there). Somehow it was still there a week later so I had to buy it.
It's giving so many vibes, I feel like a character from an 80s John Hughes movie today, but it also reminds of something Kurt Cobain would have worn and on the flip side of the coin it sort makes me think of the old Mary-Kate and Ashley movies! Anyway it has a super nostalgic feeling and it's perfect for the weather we have right now.

Okay to play us out today, Fleetwood Mac, Black Magic Woman:

I've been listening to Fleetwood Mac a lot recently. My granddad gave me "The Best Of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac", that's how I heard this song. I never really listen to the old Fleetwood Mac songs, but I've been getting into it more these last few days.

But you and I will remain

The Growlers - Humdrum Blues

Together Pangea - Offer

The Orwells - Who Needs You?

The Growlers - Wandering Eyes
(can we just take a minute to appreciate how beautiful Brooks Nielsen from The Growlers is? Like, wow. I never knew a moustache could be sexy)

Some of the music I've been digging recently. The Growlers are the newest addition. I literally started listening to them yesterday. I listened to their song "One Million Lovers" a few months ago and I loved it and meant to listen to more but I forgot. I've been listening to their latest album "Hung at Heart" today and yesterday and I sort of love it with all my heart. My music taste usually has one start point with various offspring and variations on a theme, but The Growlers are a whole genre in themselves, they're like nothing else I listen to, they're probably not like anything you've ever listened to either. They also sounds nothing like what I was expecting, the name The Growlers made me think of some kind of shout-y, Fidlar/Beach fossils mash-up thing, but they aren't like that at all. They are lo-fi though.

So, sit back relax and enjoy the beautiful music!

You will discover that it's never over

Dress from topshop, waistcoat was a hand-me-down from my cousin, tights from peacocks or something, socks from topshop

This is my favourite St. Patrick's Day outfit I've ever done, on previous years I haven't had anything green to wear, but now I have this lovely dress and cute as hell orange waistcoat

I also put on my orange lippy, its called Coral in Gold, by Rimmel

My family are away out to this folk park for St. Patrick's Day, but I've been loads of times and I wanted to stay home by myself and relax and listen to some good music and stuff.

[pictures of a slightly gross, scraped leg ahead, please don't look if that will upset you] 
I may as well share with you the story of my second skateboarding accident. I was skating out of my college car park and over balanced and fell, and I think I must slid across the tarmac too, based on the appearance of the scrape. I was wearing shorts and tights, somehow my primark tights survived but my leg unfortunately did not (they were 100 denier tights, though). That happened on Friday, its not so sore anymore, but the bruises are starting to come up, which is horrible looking.
