‘Always Spring’ – H&M x Erdem

‘Always Spring’ – H&M x Erdem

As a tween I loved H&M. When I heard the news a store was opening in my small town, I queued with my friend to make sure I would be one of the first to walk through the doors – even though I ended up purchasing a hideous dress that I still cringe at the thought of today. Since then I definitely feel I have somewhat outgrown the brand. To be honest I don’t really want a hoodie that has ‘trouble maker’ written on the front anymore. However when the H&M x Erdem collection was announced my interest was peaked once again.

Back to Black

Back to Black

During my first week of University, we were set a project on the colour black. Now I’m not sure if it was the hangovers, freshers flu or a deadly combination of the both, but this task left me confused for most of the week. I had no strong opinions on the colour black. I mean sure, most of my wardrobe consists of various shades of the colour, but that didn’t mean I had enough knowledge on black to make two whole mood boards. When my course leader informed us we were to make a mood board on why we ‘love’ and why we’re ‘over’ black, I was quite honestly dreading it. View Post

And the colour of the year is…

And the colour of the year is…

Every year Pantone announce their Colour of the Year. This is a colour they feel symbolises what is going on the world culturally, thus reflecting the mood and emotions of what’s happening in society. This year they went with ‘Greenery’. A colour which at first I’ll admit didn’t excite me. No offence to Kermit, I’m just not a big fan of green, and to be honest initially didn’t see how this was a colour that was reflecting anything going on in my life. That was until I delved a little deeper.    View Post

“Heels and red lipstick will put the fear of God into people” – Dita von Teese

I spent most of my early teens lusting after the perfect red lipstick. I bought tube after tube, mainly from the Kate Moss x Rimmel collab that I seemed to think would make me as cool as the legend herself. As I got older trends changed and so did my taste, going from red to dark nudes instead. That was until this summer, when I was re-inspired by a Kat Von D liquid lipstick I picked up from Sephora.
