A/W'13 Trends: Ladylike Punk

Hey girlies,

This is quite a big trend for this season but also not a very surprising one punk and especially leather always seem to make a big appearance in the A/W seasons. Which is brilliant for me because I tend to live in my leather jacket pretty much all year. I love bringing the 90s grunge look with the preppy sophisticated ladylike style I think it looks amazing!

I had spotted this trend loads recently here a few of my favourite outfits!

Here are a few of my favourite high street punk pieces

(Red Herring at Debenhams)
(New Look)

I hope this gives you an idea of what to look for!

Some of the key trends are;
  • feminine colours such as hot pink
  • skirts especially the pencil or skater skirt
  • biker jackets often teamed up with blouses
  • studs
  • a lot of big jewellery
  • tartan and animal prints teamed with clashing floral prints
  • satchels and ladylike handbags in black.
Let me know how you will be wearing this trend over the coming season, I hope you have enjoyed this post!

Hello October!

Hey Girlies,

So my little oddbods tomorrow is the start of October!
I personally love October, it is one of my favourite months!
I love going on walks and crunching on the leaves, I love it starting to get cold, I love Halloween time to get all dressed up as a few of my favourite characters such as Columbia from the rock horror picture show or Wednesday from The Adams family, I love all the orange and red colour's on the trees among many other things!
There are many things I want to get done this October. I want to;
  • Start baking cakes a lot more
  • Go on a few winter walks with my boyfriend
  • Watch The Breakfast Club
  • Start my Christmas shopping
  • Write my Christmas list
  • Be more organised with this blog and my YouTube channel I need to post and upload on more of a regular basis and I need to make more notes and plan my blog.
  • Hopefully get a part time job
What things do you love and look forward to about October, let me know in the comments!

A much needed Coffee and Catch up!

Hey girlies!

So its been nearly two months since I last spoke to you guys! So I feel we need a little catch up so please crap and drink and some biccies and enjoy my summer summary stories! :D about a few of the things I got up to through August (the summer since my last post) and September!

So the I was involved in organising a few holiday clubs for children within various churches in my town which took up a few weeks! Then I went to stay with my grandparents in Somerset for a second time, this time we took a daytrip up to London which we went on the London eye, to an Art gallery and the science museum we also went to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta and visited the S.S great Britain ship in Bristol! I spent many days with my boyfriend just chilling and watching films I also got to meet his amazing little nieces which was awesome.

Soon enough moving day rolled around, I may not have mentioned this. I really did not want to move but it had to be done. After moving day I spent a lot of time tidying and organising. in the new house we also had about 4 weeks with no internet (main reason for my absence).

The day after moving day was my G.C.S.E results day. I was so so so nervous I would not pass the subjects I needed. I was pretty much sure I would fail all the science's. Anyway so I went up to my old school in Cardiff, met y boyfriend and we opened our results together. I had amazing results I got more than what I needed and was beyond happy :DD , then my family came over my boyfriends for cake and stuff, we met a few of our friends for school in the park to celebrate then walked his dog on Caerphilly mountain.

My parents then treated my to a meal in my favourite pub to  celebrate

The next day I went straight up to Cheltmen (in England) to go to a Festival called GreenBelt it is a festival of the faiths, justice and the arts. I had a brilliant time with all my friends camping, dressing up, going to see bands, talks and go shopping!

After Greenbelt my 11 week summer holiday was nearly over!

It was time to start college!

I choose to leave my school and leave all my friends behind to go to the amazing new college closer to my home (My college's website) I am studying Art, R.S and Sociology A level!

My final story now ( whoop... you all cry). I was recently invited to the opening of a new exhibition in my local art gallery! the exhibition is called "F5" the artists are five lecturers from the university of south wales and the pieces are some of their personal work. It was a wonderful evening I had the chance to talk to some of the artist and experience an opening. Being lectures for many of them it was their first time having work up in a gallery so it was amazing to whiteness I could tell how hard they had worked to get their and it really inspired me.

Hope this little insight to what I have been getting up too hasn't been too boring!
