"that happy garden state..."
Ever read the poem "The Garden" by Marvell? I'm sure many of you will have COUNTLESS times if you were an A-Level Literature student who, in turn, developed a burning hate for it. Having said that, in spite of the hours spent over-analysing, and all the stress that was centred around creating several interpretations for every. single. word.... The poem is still wonderful. The reason I'm reminiscing A-Level loathe stems from the fact that my Grandparents' garden reminds me of the garden that Marvell talks about. Everything is so beautiful and vibrant, and it has a genuine tranquil aura to it. Today I spent a lengthy amount of time writing in my 'journal' amongst all of the flowers. Perfect Sunday.

While the grass in my garden is pretty and green, there's a patch where the weed kill has temporarily gotten the best of it... So naturally I thought it was a perfect setting to juxtapose my outfit before it is healthy again. 
Here is what I wore today for a little shopping spree with my sister:

Yellow blazer: Selected 
Yellow cami: H&M
White cigarette pants: Zara
Sunglasses: Pieces
Checkered vans: Vans

Song of the day:
Pharrell Williams- Brand new

Today I decided to dress how I felt... Like a lady. It's a rarity that you'll see me in something that doesn't wrap tightly around both legs, so embrace it. I even added a silly out-take of me holding a flower, posing ever so innocently, just to make it all the more real.

Shift dress: Gift
Monochrome heeled sandals: ASOS
Plastic beach bag: H&M (& two tone clutch: Mango)

Song of the day:
Quadron- LFT

Today I was wanting ultimate comfort after my shift at work so I got out the old culottes, loose hair and sliders. Perfect attire for a humid summer evening. 

Song of the day:
Friendly Fires- Hawaiian air


Perhaps it's a little cliché to re-enact the styling of the notable era of "Heroin Chic", but it's only normal to give it a try? Drug abuse, gaunt expressions and unconventional sexiness defines photography of the 1990's, and here I am impersonating just that in two shots from the shoot.

Song of the day:
The Kills- Cheap and careful

As I wasn't quite enjoying blogging on my other blog, I decided to recreate it with a new name and a new perspective. My old blog focused mainly on my narcissistic self, presenting the public with a thousand and one outfit posts of 'what I wore today' or 'outfit of the century'... And this blog will be exactly the same! Ha! BUT I'll also mention my weekly beauty picks, my weekly discoveries and a hell of a lot about the wonderful life I lead...


Song of the day:
Al Johnson- I'm back for more
