Packaging from the Past

So I was in Real Foods the other day and I picked up these faux-sausages...a brand of which I usually dont buy and it struck me how 1970s the packaging looked. Isnt it wicked.


They were only 95p too...what a bargain!

Lady Gaga

Someone just told me Lady Gaga was number 1. I kinna feel behind the times as I don't know that much about this woman. I have seen numberous pictures of her in pvc leggins and big gold bows and fully appreciated her look...however music had managed to slip past me.

So I just watched the video for Just Dance on youtube. I first noticed the Skins -esque video by Melina Matsoukas, who has done a host of new artist like Katy Perry. I am a fan of the high contrast look so its pretty good. but overall, the song is disapointing. The base line is cool and kinna catchy, but she sounds like Gwen Stefani/Britney/Nelly Furtado/Every other recent artist so I have already forgotten the song. Shame the bold look doesnt match the tunezz. Who bought it anyway?

It is truly an MTV song as without the video and enlistment of Melina Matsoukas I doubt she would have sold so many tracks. I'm not one to focus on the negative here's some cool shots from the vid (oh and I've got to say - what an obvious cliche to try to start a trend with the whole hand over one eye thing!)but the pink coat is wicked! I never say no to check either.


Little Boots Extravaganzzza


I've been watching youtube videos by Little Boots for quite a while now. She is cute, spunky and bright. What a pip!

Then on a recent jaunt to my local news stand I saw an array of covers with Little Boots on it...what a week of media least this time the hype is true!

I can't remember exactly but she is in loads of mags (so go and buy them all) like NME, Sunday Herald Magazine, The Times, Fader magazine, BBC News...blah blah blah.

Well done baby, lets hope 2009 is the year of singers names after footwear.

I found Noukjb on Lookbook. The photos on there show some pretty cool hair styles and different clothes. However it was when I went to his Flickr that I really fell in love.

Take a look for yourself. Some of the shots are incredible.
I think this is my favourite.


If you are looking for simplistic genious. Turn to BIZ C on Lookbook. Her photographs are clean cut and simplistic, just like the outfits. Fabulous.

I've always had an innate sense of style...

even in the early 90s.


I must get it from my family.

Found a box of old photos I took with my 35mm Pentax. This was a series I did as an assignment in New York last summer, I had awful hayfever and my eyes were so sore. Not only this but Chris (my model) also nearly passed out from inhaling so much!

Check em out! x

Red Hair 2009

So I got bored of the brown. This is the first time as a teenager / adult I had let me hair completely grow out. But now its been long and brown for about 6 months I decided to go orange/red. I have been persuaded to try Henna so I bleached a bit first then hennaed from Lush. Here's the process:
