Until I can actually pull my arse out of work long enough to buy some decent batteries for my DSLR, i'm opting to jump on the 'generic instagram post' bandwagon. So here are my last 10 instagram photos. Admittedly they are not typical of a self proclaimed fashion blogger, nonetheless, they caught my eye long enough for me to want to share them with my fantastic 123 followers, and now with all of you on here. It is a slow rehabilitation back into the blogging world, it's hard to be inspired, but i guess i have to accept the fact i live in a less than inspirational place and, rather than wait for myself to happen upon awe inspiring insight, hunt that bad boy down. So bare with me peeps (i'msostreet). 

A neon skull bracelet, bought for me by a friend of mine                                     Foals gig i recently bagged tickets for
A Johnny Cash record i found in a charity shop for 50p                                        Some JC look-a-likes i picked up for £15
Some doodles during a long lecture                                                                    A pizza i made in Prezzo rugby during a work 'thing'
Mac highlighter i recently purchased                                                                  Real JC's bought for me by my bf (xmas present)
My wardrobe which is way too full                                                                      Deftones gig i'm going to, 2013 is a good year for gigs!

And there you have it. If you wish to view my feeble attempts at photography regularly, feel free to follow my instagram. Until next time, little scamps..

Peace and jazz

take these sunken eyes and learn to see

First of all, hello!

I would secondly like to apologise to all of my subscribers for being an M.I.A. bastard and not blogging for just under a year. See when I was forced to move back home from New York I was stuck in a rut. For the whole time before my move to the big city, i hadn't really thought what would happen after it because i was so caught up in all the excitement and concentrating on the only important thing i had going on in my life. So when i unwillingly arrived home, i was swamped by well wishes, requests for stories and love from my then boyfriend. This then spiraled downwards; i found out that i couldn't submit my uni work and had to hand in to pass and i have just completed a repeat year which i have to fund myself - nightmare. So safe to say i have not been in the best of spirits since touching down on UK turf. 

But here i am now; single, complete with a new look, new fitness regime, new piercings and a new tattoo. I'm a changed person, i swear. New York made me into the person i've always knew i was, the person who was always stifled by small town life, now i'm not afraid to do anything.

I have begun planning to go back to the big apple, this time for a lot longer, six months even and maybe even permanent if i can find a way. This time will be a hell of a lot more different though; i'll be a free agent, i'll have more time to explore, i'll be there with a whole different bunch of people; it's actually kind of terrifying.

So i guess i'm going to start blogging again! Thank you for all of the voodlers who have hung in there through my blogging dry spell, i appreciate the support.

Lastly, now i'm a 'meal for one' again, if anyone knows of any tattooed, bearded hipsters.. fling 'em my way for us? Cheers.

new york giveaway

Sorry about the lighting on the pictures, i took them in work which is the only place i seem to be nowadays. This is my New York giveaway. I've been collecting things since the first week i arrived in the big apple and this is the end collection. I know it's  not major, just a few little pretty things, but they're all NY sourced and original (i think, i got them from little market stalls and independent boutiques). You know the drill, i'm just gonna use the standard giveaway rules, plus one or two added.


* Iconic I heart NY tee in your size
** Two rings, bought from a market stall and an independent new york boutique.
*** Owl necklace and plate necklace, both bought from an independent new york boutique.
**** Bumpy cuff thing. 
***** And a few new york themed suprises.


* You must be a follower of my blog or/and my twitter.
** Leave a comment including "enter me".


*** Tweet something or put something on your blog about my giveaway and leave a link to the tweet/post for an extra entry.
**** Tell me something you like about my blog for an extra entry.
***** State a moment we've shared on twitter or bloggy-blog for an extra entry.

I know what you're thinking, "sweet moses she took her sweet arse time posting this" and you'd be right, i have taken far too much time out of the blogging world. I haven't become bored of blogging or anything, like many bloggers at the moment, i've been mounting my uni work and revision like a dog's first meeting with a giant cuddly toy only without the erotic undertones. So the shirts featured above are the latest additions to the thrifted section of my wardrobe, i can't remember which charity shop they were from, but it was in wrexham. I'm not supposed to be spending money because i'm going away for the summer and i have a stupidly small amount of money saved, but i couldn't resist the 'saved by the bell'-esque-ness and they were obviously a steal. I loves them.

NEW YOOOOOOORRK. Yes, my flights are booked for the 14th of june and i'm coming back on the 9th of september, which means that it's 34 days until i climb into a tin can and am catapulted across the atlantic. I have NO apartment or job, although i have applied for 78 apartments today and bunch of boutique jobs, but i'm so excited it's untrue. I just wanna get there and live the new yorker life.

Hope you're all dandy, what was up with the blogger downtime, huh? Weird. I have a few blogposts lined up for this week, one about my new raybans, and a few outfit posts. HURRAH.

Love and jazz
