Photo Diary: Strawberry Wine

hey :) its been ages since I've updated. I started college in September and I've been so busy. I'm studying English, Film and Art History, majoring in English. This is a picture of my university, we have two lakes I have no idea why but it looks pretty...

I got a flat near the centre of town, its not that pretty but its near uni so I cant complain. I thought Id post some pictures from my instagram, I didn't bring my nikon with me this semester so I have been taking many pictures

I love this cute little velvet hairband from Topshop
(hairband - topshop, tshirt - river island, skirt - river island)

I'm going to wear this little red dress for Christmas, its from New Look

I wish I bought this top so much
(top - topshop skirt - river island)

Im so glad Im home for Christmas, I finally have time to read Morrissey's autobiography, hoping for some embarrassing teen stories

I went to see MGMT in October, it was fun, they had such a light show/video thing hehe and they played lots of songs from their second album which I love 

I've been listening to lots more shoegaze recently, mostly this album on repeat. I made this mix for my friends birthday and it has some of my favourite shoegaze songs on it

I went to the Irish Museum Modern Art for Art History for assignment on contemporary art and I really liked this exhibition. It engages with the concept of beauty and aesthetic, presenting modern interpretations of Hogarth's Line of Beauty

I haven't got a Christmas jumper I feel so left out :( I'm not festive enough anyway hehe although I cant wait to spend all day watching movies and sleeping (◡‿◡)

  2. What is the one makeup item you couldnt live without? I can only narrow it down to foundation, pink lipstick and liquid eyeliner. My foundation is Dream Satin Liquid in light porcelain by Maybeline New York. My lipstick is Moisture Shine Lipstick in Rasberry by the Natural Collection at Boots. My eyeliner is Super Liner Ultra Precision by L'oreal Paris. I've been though a lot of liquid eyeliners and I feel this one is the easiest to apply because it has a felt tip and lasts almost all day.
  3. What is you biggest irrational fear? walking home at night

  8. What is your favourite beauty brand? I don't think I have one particular favourite brand. I tend to buy whatever is cheapest tbh haha I have however always used products by Simple because I have very sensitive skin and I don't know what Id do without it.

Sleeveless Angel Dress Denim, Leather Chunky Heel Sandal White
Polka Scoop Midi Dress Navy, Leather |Biker Boot
You can buy their magazine for free you just have to pay for the shipping. Also check out their street style lookbook. I know its not Easter but this video was just too cute not to post

Prada Candy

by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola 

Prada's short film for their new perfume Prada candy is so dreamy. If you haven't seen it yet you can watch it here, the behind the scenes is quite good too. The advertisement is a love story similar to that of the french new wave film  Jules et Jim, it is also another chance to see Prada's spring/summer 13 collection and the red flower bag <3

The New Vintage

I love modern vintage and Topshop Boutique's take on seventies bohemia is pretty cool. I love the light blue velvet platforms, they remind me of Jodie Foster's shoes in Taxi Driver. I bought a black velvet hairband from topshop which is similar to the one shown here. I've decided that this Autumn I am going to wear nothing but silk and velvet. 
P.S. does anyone know the name of the model?

Heartbreak Hotel

shirt- topshop
skirt - primark
shoes - zara
glasses- zerouv

This shirt just so happens to be my favourite piece of clothing atm, the embroidery is so pretty and the collar is perfect. Midi skirts are so fun to wear. I got my shoes in zara when I went to Las Vegas yeah that happened and it was awesome and there was a rollarcoaster in my hotel :o I got the glasses from zeroUV it's a great website for buying vintage looking glasses

English Rose featuring Suki Waterhouse Tatler June 2013

I bought Tatler today. How beautiful does Suki Waterhouse look? I am in love with her atm. One minute she dresses like a sixties babydoll and the next she's sort of grunge. I love the gold hoop earrings with the fur coat, she is the perfect muse. Her website has some great photos

New British Beauties 
styled by Katie Grand
photographed by Angeo Pennetta

black and white moody photos <3 love
the model on the left is Eliza Cummings - her Marc Jacobs fishnet dress reminds me of the dress Jane Birkin wore to the premiere of her movie Slogan. The model on the right is Olympia Campbell, Edie Campbells little sister
Imagine wearing a Dior skirt and a fur stole and nothing else :o the photo on the right is so angelic, it makes me want to wear nothing but white
Mary Charteris is married to Robbie Furze from the band The Big Pink, they sing that song Dominos. I think her hair would look amazing cut really short
the model on the left is Lily McMenamy, daughter of Kristen McMenamy. Is it just me or does she look like the female version of Julian Casablancas? :P I don't know what I'm more jealous of, the fact that she plans to study the history of art at the Sorbonne next year or the fact that she is wearing head to toe Louis Vuitton
this photo of Suki in an Alexander Mc Queen dress is so cool

I just really love this editorial ... so yeah
