I'm really loving the collaboration between Nasty Gal and Mink Pink. It's not the type of clothes I go for but I just love the colours going on, especially with the hair, and Hyoni Kang as the model. Pleasantly surprised!

pastel prescription

As you are very aware pastels are pretty much prescription for this season. I found this super cozy jumper on Etsy (AmeliaBedelia Vintage). The weather is definitely getting cooler and I'm looking forward to wearing this lots.
On a side note, wore this to go see The Avengers. It was effing epic.

This fish print is so lovely. I wonder if it's in stock in the Aussie store.

Things I love Thursday

(image via A portable package Tim Burton for Vogue)
  • Keira Knightley on the cover of Interview magazine. Um, wow. Recently watched her new film "A Dangerous Method" which I guess I enjoyed but nothing really seemed to happen much in the film. Of course the cast were excellent but in terms of storyline there wasn't really much meat to it. The scenery was however, truly delectable.
  • Going to see The Last Dinosaurs on Tuesday night, and got the album signed by Ryu (Sean)! If you like beachy, eclectic, fun rock then you'll like them. But they are also so much more than that.. Buy their album In a Million Years here
  • Make up artist Lucy Gibson and her insight on the industry and maintaining your integrity. This really rang true with me. Her tumblr is also lovely.
  • Sushi-inspired editorial by Karla Powell. Yes, that's right SUSHI. This is incredible. So clever! My mind kind of exploded when I saw this - a perfect culmination of sushi (omnoms) and make up (stunning). 
  • Amen. Young girls/guys/everyone listen up - "
    I think you should save money and not spend it all on fashion. Is that controversial? Save 10% of what you earn. Always. Pretend you never earned it. Because one day you’re going to want to buy a house to live in, and you can’t do that if you’ve spunked it all on not-so-cheap threads.
    ...Don’t panic buy and treat sales like brain surgery. Be precise, make only considered incisions into your wallet." - Hickville
  • Gala Darling speaking at TEDxCMU. Radical self love.
  • Jil Sander Oxfords. Bright red! 
  • Various recipes for mashed potatoes. I'm going try this one and this one.
  • Audrey's speech.
  • "Graphical. Magical-graphical, emotive make-up" An interview of Alex Box (Illamasqua creator), from Looking Good blog. Part 1, 2, 3. Amazing, incredible woman. 
  • The eponymous Kevyn Aucoin. A handful of his work here.
  • Aaaaaaannnnddd...really excited about SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS. It'll be rough because we're camping, I don't know how that's gonna pan out because I am a little super high maintenance (asthma/eczema/allergies = me). But yeah. Totes looking forward to the whole line up. It's perfect.

Hair Ideas

My hair is not that long but it still feels like it needs a cut. I have really thick hair so it becomes shapeless quite quickly and although it is straight it gets unruly somehow. I can't explain it.
1 - Sara from Harper&Harley 2-4 cannot remember the source, 5&6 - Stockholm Streetstyle, 7 - The Fashion Spot.

It's pretty evident that I'm still in love with that long bob style. I can't help it! But seeing girls with long hair makes me want to grow it out too...I am also tempted to go back to layers and a long fringe.

Tunes on Tuesday

First video: Smoky Eyes - A comparison

Finally! First video is up. Make that videoS. I had to break it up into three parts. Golly. I didn't realise how much I ramble. Although I shouldn't be that surprised seeing as I do take ages to put my make up on - it is something I am working on! I promise not to ramble so much next time as well. Also, you may catch glimpses of my brother, haha, he was helping me film.

  1. part one
  2. part two
  3. part three

Please watch, hope you enjoy it and find it somewhat interesting. Constructive criticism is welcome but hate/trolling will be laughed at/ignored/deleted/reported/all of the above. Let's all be adults here.

Side notes: Looking back now I could've blended a bit more. I also forgot to add mascara. Firstly because I was pressed for time (ended up being long and secondly, in real life I don't wear mascara that much. Only on 'special occasions'. This is because my eyelashes are not only puny but weak - they break when remove the mascara, even upon the gentlest touch. I also realise that in some parts it looks like I'm being really rough with my face. It's worse than it looks, trust me. And I don't always pull the skin around my eyes that much, it was just hard to angle the teeny brush properly so you could see and so I could apply it properly. Also next time I will definitely try uploading in HD. #shuttingupnowkthxbye.

Things I Love Thursday

I've decided to follow in Gala Darling's footsteps and do a weekly gratitude list/list of lovable tidbits. 
What are some things that you love today? I'd love to see them!

p.s. I post up this little polyvore outfit unawares earlier on. It's staying. I like it as a little header piece for the post.

Capsule collection: Acne

Ok I promise to shut up about Acne after this.

Clean, white and bright sums up their capsule collection for SS12. And how cool is the back drop?

Currently lusting after..

Acne has risen to cult status so quickly, and it's hard to see why not.

I try my best to refrain from visiting their webshop too frequently, because there's nothing more depressing that seeing something amazing and not being able to afford it (yet. I am a big advocate of living within one's means, well 95% of the time ;)). By which time you've saved up the desired item is gone. #wantsalltheclothes

Here are my current lusts from their current stock.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
