  • Midweek Mixtape
    on Mar 24, 2011 in mixtape music friends chester
    This week I guess I'm going with a more electro theme to some of the songs. I've definately neglected Miiike Snow's stuff before now, well aside from a Sky Ferreira cover version of 'animal' which a friend gave me on a mix CD a few months ago. Sinc...

    http://redefiningbodyimage.tumblr.com/I just found this image while browsing around Tumblr thanks to Milly, and it's prompted me to get a little brave with a 'body image' related post.  Finally! I've always struggled with my body and been '...

    Ahhh the good old retreat to Pendulum song titles, memories!  Okay so these are by no means a new product or even a new purchase for me, but I figured after trawling through my ever expanding makeup bag (well bags, plural!) for a pink lipstick l...

    I'm getting majorly lazy with posting stuff on time, sorry!  So what was the Sunday Mixtape, this week can be Tuesday Tracklist.  I'll probably try to stick at the same day each week, but honestly wouldn't be surprised if I ended up coming...

    As the title suggests, it was Milly's birthday this week!  Tuesday to be exact.  Soooooo, seeing as she's fricking awesome and one of the best chicks I've met, ever, I decided to brave Yorkshire and the 2 hour trip to go see her for this mo...

  • on Dec 19, 2010 in mixtape music sunday
    I thought it was a good idea to end the week (or start it depending on how you see it) with a short mix tape playlist of songs that've shaped my week and hardly been off my iPod.  Hence the birth of the "Sunday mix tape".  Fingers crossed f...

    So England (well and the rest of the UK) has been hit by snow for the 2nd time in a few weeks.  It's a week early for a white Christmas!  C'mon weather get it right! Albeit in the North West it's nowhere near as bad as right up north, or No...

    Just last week I decided to take the plunge and dye my hair!  It's been a kinda mushed up mousey brown colour graduating into a more warmer goldy brown shade (as a result of the fact I cannot be fucked to dye my hair and keep up with colours I d...

    Recently I decided to attempt to break the habit of a lifetime.  As a chronic nailbiter, my nails never even reach the my fingertips, with them generally being bitten down as far as they can go without bleeding.  Not an attractive sight in...

    Anyone who knows me, will know how much I live for music... And how 'odd' my music taste is, eclectic at best.  I tend to alternate between folk and acoustic as a musical staple, mixed in with some of the heavier glitchy stuff, as well as the od...

    Bit of a FOTD.  Berry lips and neutral eyes.  I'll try and keep up with these and remember to take pictures if anything swanky happens, fingers crossed for remembering!  I started out with my 'usual' neutral shadows then messing around...
