Let The Snow Numb The Pain Away

Today it snowed, first time this year :-) I took the advantage of taking some photos. Some of them are just of me, bored, in my bedroom while it snowed a lil outside in the morning. The ones of me outside in the snow is when it snowed alot! The last one I tripped myself up LOL. And my slipper came off so my foot went right in the snow haha.. felt fluffy ^.^

Hope you like the photos... especially taken for the blog :D Seeing as I know I haven't posted pictures of myself in ages.

Taylor Momsen, November/December Issue of Wonderland Magazine

I love these photos of Taylor Momsen from her photoshoot with Wonderland magazine.
Aren't they beautiful?

Photo source + interview here.
In the interview she talks Gossip Girl, her band The Pretty Reckless, modelling
and how she feels to be seen as a role model.

"the best role model anyone can be is to just be themselves – that’s the coolest thing you can be – and not give a shit what anyone else would say about you because it really doesn’t matter."
P.S. you may have realised I have a new design layout! Hope you all like it, I think it looks more professional? But I still had to keep a little touch of pink to add to the 'CandyCoated' effect! Didn't seem right when I tried the all white look as much as I love that too.

Thank you for reading!

26th November
EDIT: I bought it today after coming back from a night at the pictures (saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1!). This magazine is awwwesome, really lovely. Recommended!!

i-D, Issue 310 - Winter 2010

Bought this today when I was in town shopping, it's been horrible weather - none stop raining and when I saw this AMAAAZING cover of i-D with Abbey Lee on the cover I HAD to get it. I think it cheered me up from the gloomy day. Yay for it being Friday though! This issue is jam-packed with amazing photoshoots & photography (as always..).
It has pictures featuring more of Abbey Lee inside and also Kate Moss! And a spread on Nadine Coyle from Girls Aloud. Well worth your £5.


The Back To The Future Issue is the third and final part in i-D's 30th anniversary trilogy. We're looking forward and seeing stars.

The past affects the future: four exclusives, four dialogues.
DISARM: Abbey Lee by David Bailey and Charlotte Stockdale – a relentless, apocalyptic vision of beauty.
AMAZE: Dree Hemingway by Matt Jones and Allan Kennedy – Dree Hemingway has personality to captivate.
INSPIRE: Kate Moss by Alasdair McLellan and Edward Enninful – Kate Moss collaborates with Longchamp and continues to define style.
IMPRESS: Kanye West by Fabien Montique and Rushka Bergman – Kanye is one of the most vocal, provocative superstars today.
Plus insi-De Terry Jones talks in-depth to Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson in another exclusive feature. And we meet the next wave of UK urban music talent.
Sixty miles an hour! Non-stop. Your future's whatever you make of it, so make it a good one.

There are other covers from this issue I've just found online now!
Didn't know there were more but to be honest, I still prefer mine :)

So I was in class today on one of the computers browsing through the dreamy Urban Outfitters website. It gave me the idea to post some of what I like on here and share it with you guys! I love these items alot - especially the Minkpink Floral Velvet Blazer! I adoreee the detail and the fabric looks so lovely (though being velvet, of course it would be!). I'm also dying for the first dress which is also velvet, I think velvet is quite in fashion this Autumn/Winter, I've seen it quite alot. Anyway, the colour is just beautiful and I love love love it. Shame it's £40 though, I'm going to be on the look out for look-a-likes that are cheaper ;) !

Anyway, I'm hoping to do another 'outfit of the day' sort of post again soon. But with school and everything I haven't really had the chance neither have my outfits been very exciting at the weekends...

I'm applying for college soon! I did my application form today so will hand it in tomorrow probably. I've picked Photography & Performing Arts ... and Maths GCSE (FORCED TO DO). I need the Maths because you need an A-C grade in it to be able to do Photography/PA :S STUPID much?! But if I don't manage to get those things (due to my poor Maths or the other thing to do with my grades), I'll get my second choice (lets hope) which will be Art and Design (which apparently has photography included! Yaaay).

I was browsing around the Topshop website the other day and landed upon the shoes section. Here are some of my favourites! Unfortunalty I can't afford any of them as to me, they are pretty expensive (some more than others)! But I always love looking and thought it would be nice to share some with you guys. Each shoe title has a link to where to buy the shoe so just hover over & click to do that!

It's unfortunate because the Topshop where I live is farely small so they don't even have most of the shoes shown aboth. I can rely on the London (my proper hometown<3) ones for everything though ;)

Halloween Time Pictures

30th October, Brighton Zombie Walk
Me and 2 of my friends went to the Brighton Zombie Walk (parade), the other day. It's a day were thousands of people can dress up as zombies and do a massive group walk from Brighton Station to Brighton beach. There where over 2000 people and lots of people put masses of effort into their costumes and props. Unfortuantly I didn't go to much extreme with my appearance but oh well, it was lots of fun. Here are some pictures from the day...
Hope my friend doesn't mind herself being on here :p

On Halloween I went to my friends house and in total there were 4 of us, my friends wanted to go Trick or Treating so we done that, got lots of sweets... I was thinking that we're probably a bit old for Trick or Treating but my friends thought otherwise haha.
