Fashion Post

Omg, Just realised how long its been since I posted! :O
Basicly, just for the update, iv been in america, started fashion college, got a job, and im planning to go to the clothes show live at the end of the year, Hooray!
Thought id post a few things i love right now :)
Jumpers + Tights I cant explain why i like this combo so much, but hey since winters coming might as well stock up on em'!
Floaty fabrics and 60's chic, long skirts especially, dont know if i can pull this off for everday wear though.
Dark see through fabrics, I Just recently bought a black sheer blouse from American Apparel, which is lovely so im putting the link here ;)
Long knee length skirts, with the front cut out! they dont have to be floor length though, if your unsure on them, try different fabrics, or lengths, avoid prints if its on more solid materials like cotton or linnen, or it could look like your wearing a bedsheet.

Room re-vamp

I promised myself sometime this year I will get round to re-vamping my room.
Its bright pink at the moment and a nightmare to paint over!
I want everything in these photos for it :)
I really want to paint half my room white (im thinking this will take 5/7 coats of paint)
And adding in really quirky little decorations, lots of fabrics, tea lights and bunting :)
(The bunting I already have as you can see below)

DIY Nebula Trangle T-shirt

Im sure iv seen this t-shirt in Topshop, or Topman, regardless both are rather expensive and its really easy and cheap to make your own!
All you need is:
. A plain white t-shirt (You can opt for black and cover the whole thing)
. Tape (Scotch or masking tape)
. Scissors
. Fabric paints
. Paint brushes
. And an old Toothbrush
First get your t-shirt and cut the neck and sleeves to the desired fit.
Now flatten your t-shirt out on a smooth surface and tape a triangle (Or whatever shape you want) on to it, make sure the outline of the shape is thick, or the paint will get on the rest of the shirt.
Paint the inner shape all black and wait for it to dry.
Mix blues and any other shades you like and dab them on, again wait for this to dry
Once the nebula pattern is dried its time to add stars so use blue and white paint on a tooth brush and flick it over the t-shirt, it should splatter in to what looks like stars

Country excursions

Iv been off to the Yorkshire dales for part of my hollidays.
Now I thought im going to be bored stiff, and well, I dont exactly own country friendly clothes, nothing practical apart from one pair of boots!
The majority of my stay I was outside, walking, visiting different towns and loads of little art galleries.
Also going to waterfalls, and I didnt have to go far either, There was a waterfall just accross the road from our house!
Which im rather proud to say I jumped in to!

New hair, Blue hair?

I fancy a change of hair style, I used to change it literally every week, but its been solid brown now for quite some while, im absolultey loving pastel colours (like muted lialac, nommy!) however I would have to bleach the life out of all of my hair, and when you have the side shaved it's not to easy to keep on top of.
Anyways, heres some awesome pastel coloured hairs for inspiration!
The problem I always encounter when changing my hair colour is not really the colour itself, but the way its dyed in to your hair, Iv never really been a fan of tipped hair but iv found some pretty styles for tipped hair, mostly the tips go quite far up the hair, and are a little more alternative than the usual...
This is what im going for:
