Calvin Harris is a trend setter.

So did anyone see Calvin Harris on the X Factor the other week?
If you didn't. It was hilarious!
Basically whilst John and Edward were singing, he ran on stage with a pineapple on his head,  imitating the annoying twins hair-cuts!

^ Here's a picture of the moment it happened!

So, now I've told you that, does this remind you of anything?!

Aha! I think Cheryl Cole's used Calvin as inspiration for her hat?!
I admit Cheryl looks amazing in most things, but this is abit too far!


Cause we can't take our eyes off the t-shirt and ties combination, Well see you later, innovator .

Friday was crazy! I went to see Arctic Monkeys, they were absolutely brilliant. I think I almost fainted when Alex Turner came on stage!
But, I was by myself like half the night! I lost all my friends and had to just party on by myself! Ha, was amazing anyway! I was covered in cider by the end of it, people just threw their cups, half full, in the air. After the concert we all stayed at my friend Ryan's house, which was really fun too.
So, yeah, overall a pretty hectic night.  

Anyway, the other evening I was on the computer and realised I needed to do something a bit more productive with my evening. I mean, I love being on the computer, but I just felt like doing something abit less boring with my night.  So I got out my Jack Wills Summer handbook and created this.

Yeaah, it's not amazing, but it is more creative than what I would have produced with the usual evening on facebook and msn, e.g. nothing.

Here is my 'Inspiration on a Friday', on a Sunday! 

Sorry that this post is like so mismatch-y. 

PS I love these people and this photo.

If you get the chance to smell or buy 'Alien' by Thierry Mugler, DO. It actually smells AMAZING. I got a sample from a shop and it was the best ever. But now it's a decider between this perfume and 'Fierce' by Abercrombie&Fitch which is the nicest smell ever, makes my day. Which one will be on my christmas list?!

Red, Red, Red Kiss.

The red lips and black hair are back for the ultimate party season. Yeah, i know red lips have been in forever, but suddenly all the celebs are wearing their lips red. Also, they are all going for the really long lash. Cheryl Cole has done both, red lips and long lashes. I think this time she is actually on trend. Whereas normally she comes out on the X-Factor stage in some outrageous dresses, why would you do that on television? And then dress really nicely day-to-day. She's confusing!


Recently went back to my hometown, London. I thought I'd do a post on it, as it is probably one of my favourite places in the world. I love going shopping there, with everyone buzzing around the shelves. And most of all you get too see everyones personal style. It's just brilliant.

Rest In Peace Daul Kim

Daul Kim, an extremely beautiful model and brilliant blogger, has passed away at aged twenty. It is unknown what she died of.
This girl wasn't your typical model, she had an amazing character too. It's a shock, definitely in a good way, when a model doesn't mind messing around and making a fool of themselves in pictures; it's such a shame to waste this talent.

So rest in peace Daul Kim.


When she was 22 the future looked bright, But she's nearly 30 now and she's out every night..

..I see that look in her face, she's got that look in her eye,
She's thinking how did I get here and wondering why.   Lily Allen - 22.

 I've had a Lily Allen day today, I've literally listened to her songs all day.
Not only does she have amaaazing songs, she's also really down to earth and a beautiful woman.
I ♥ her.

Left outfit; Leather jacket - GAP, Necklace - My sisters/thrifted, Vest - H&M, High Waisted skirt - DIY, Belt - Tesco/F&F!
Right outfit; Bracelets - Primark, Ring (slightly shown) - Outfit, Playsuit - Random shop in Thailand,  Blazer - H&M.

Two outfits, neatly hung on my wardrobe.
The one on the left was for today, it was a non-uniform day at school.
The other is for tomorrow night, when I see Arctic Monkeys!
I'll most probably post some pictures of me in these outfits at some point, but I can't be bothered to change in to them at the moment.

Sorry for the boring post!

Your past-times, consisted of the strange, and twisted and deranged. And I love that little game, you had called, Crying Lightning.

Ahhh. I'm going to see Arctic Monkeys on Friday!
I am so excited. The Arctic Monkeys are BRILLIANT.
I think I'm going to really enjoy it, as long as they sing lots of their older songs as I think these are sooo much better!
Crying Lighting - lyrics in the title - is also really good and I like the new album but just I'm not sure about a couple of the songs.
So, yeah bring on I bet that you look good on the dancefloor, mardybum and When the sun goes down!

Okay, on a more fashion related note, here is an outfit I wore a week or so back, that I forgot to post.

 Crop Top; Clothes Show London - Elegantly Waisted, I added the studs on myself. Skirt; H&M. Bracelets; Primark. 
I'm not at all sure about the pictures, me trying to be a model (not so successfully) isn't a good look, but yeah you can see the outfit so it's all good.

MC'S Closet. ♥

So, I have a new favourite blog! MC's Closet.
The bloggers behind Mc's Closet are Maggie and Casey, two amazingly pretty 15 year olds from the United states. As promised I had a mini interview with them and here it is!

So, why did you create MC's Closet?
Casey and I (Maggie) have always loved the world of fashion. We wanted to help inspire others, and show them other sides to that glamorous world. We thought why not start a fashion blog? 

And what about the name; how did you come up with that?
Our names start with MC (Maggie & Casey) and we wanted everyone to know our blog was about fashion which is how we came up with MCsCloset!
You always seem to look nice; where are your favourite places to buy your clothes?
Thank youuu! We love checking at H&M, thrift stores, and Urban Outfitters. Our one soft spot is LF, it's by far our favorite store, when we go in there it's like walking into heaven!
What is your favourite thing about blogging?

We love getting all the feedback, and hearing from the readers!!
Your favourite piece of clothing and accessories?

The one thing we both agree we can't live without is our leather jackets, black jeans, and loads of silver jewellery!
Your pictures really are beautiful! How do you come up with the ideas for your poses and backgrounds? And, what camera do you use?

We try to be as simple as possible with our background and poses because we want people to focus on the clothes. We are hoping to get Nikon D60s but for now we're stuck with a Cannon and Olympus, the MACs come in handy for editing.
In each of these categories, who do you get your inspiration from:

Lisa Place, Fashion Toast, and the variety of blog interviews on Fashion Jinx.

Mary Kate Olsen, Erin Wasson, and Taylor Momsen.
Balmain, DVF, Alexander McQueen, Robert Galliano, Balenciaga, Botteda Veneta, Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim... and many more!!
And, anyone else?
We also get inspired by peoples street style.

So as you can see; these girls are beautiful, there outfits are inventive and chic and they're great bloggers.
So, check out there blog here!
Tell me what you think of them on the comments.

Who are your favourite bloggers?
Also, don't forget to follow! Alice and I are very happy when we get a new follower.
  I usually comment back to everyone who comments us, so keep on commenting!
