Pink Hair

 so iv dyed my hair pink, done the whole of it this time instead of just dip dying it. I used Crazy colours candy-floss and then a deeper pink on some random sections. (oh i also got my hair cut, but know not that short. just a full fringe and tiding up the ends,  iv put the rest of it up in a messy knot bun- im kind of liking the long shaggyish bob though.) 

so the first 2 pictures were taken the other day before i want out for the night. And the last was taken at about 3 in the next morning after being severely rained on and pander eyes. 

over all i love the look. it has a kind of earthy boho grungie vibe to it. <3

Outfitts of the day: Men Don't Protect You Any More


Just a little bit of grungie style, wet look leggings: plaid shirt, and a Nirvana vest. With of corse a selection of jewelry :)

Hair Hair Hair

Just a couple of pitchers of may hair. 

his jeans looked better on me any way.

These are a pair of shorts i made from a pair of my ex's jeans. And sorry to disappoint you but i didn't cut them up out hatred of for closure. He completely destroyed them playing football waiting for a bus, ripping the fabric at the crotch beyond repair (i have sewn up many of his jeans countless times) and i got them for scrap fabric. 


  •  I started by cutting the length of the legs still keeping the shorts quite long at this stage and keeping the bottom of the legs for scrap.
  • I then unpinned the waist band and belt loops and then unpinned the front back and side seams. (I kept the back yoke, pockets and zip in, basically because I'm lazy) 
  • using the scrap denim i patched up the larger holes in the fabric and darned the smaller ones. 
  • I then pinned and tacked the front and back pieces back together, putting them on to check fit and adjusting. 
  • once i was happy with the fit i sewed the seems together using a flat welt down the center front and back, reversed lapped seam along the outer leg this left the edges exposed for a more distressed look and a kind of patchwork lapped type seem along the inside legs. 
  • at this point i would have reattached the waist band and belt loops, only they went walkies, so I'm leaving that off, but it adds to the distressed effect. 

  • I then cut the shorts to length and dipped in bleach. (unfortunately they turned orange not white/gray, but nether mind. 

  • once rinsed and dried I continued by adding dome studs to the back pocket and the front and dripped and distressed the fabric. 


i love the outcome, now i just need to get out and wear them ;)

Outfit of the day: waterfull dress

A black chiffon waterfall dress which i think is from hearts and bows. (I could be wrong about that though) I love the softness of this dress as it just drapes really nicely. At my waist Im wearing a simple elasticated belt with a metal clasp.
I tied my hair up with a black ribbon at the side, and with silver: cross and spiked jewellery i believe that the look has quite a sophisticated edginess to it. A kind of grungie emoish glamor to it.

I also wore these boots on from allsaints which i love. Any way, i wore this to the private view of my college exhibition, and got quite a few compliments for what i was wearing. :)
