Fave Song : Jarbird - More Bad Celebrity Poetry

This song makes me cry pretty much every time I listen to it, but that's probably why I love it so much.

It creates such an amazing atmosphere with tension filled pauses, big piano feels and beautiful voices and lyrics. This is one to pull at your heartstrings for sure (if it doesn't you must be made of stone!).

Also big respect to Crown&Owls who directed the video.

If you are able to see them this weekend at The Great Escape in Brighton I am eternally jealous. Otherwise you'll see me in front of the stage at the next gig I know they are doing in London in September! Link to deets here.

Listen to their other music here.

Clarks AW14 Press Day

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Clarks AW14 press day. It was really fun and gave me the chance to check all the new styles that are going to drop in August this year, and what people are going to be walking around for our many months of English Winter!

They had everything from, Men's, Women's, Children's to the Originals collections. I always thought the Originals would always be my favourites (and they were AMAZING!), but I was seriously impressed with Orla Kiely’s (the queen of prints!) second collection with the brand.

Renowned for her love of colour, pattern and texture, Kiely has taken her contemporary spin on 60s and 70s design and created a capsule collection of six styles. Weaving classic rich autumnal tones of burgundy, ochre and red, with bold silhouettes and unexpected textures, the collection is undeniably trend led, yet appeals to the wardrobe needs of every modern woman.

From the Clarks Originals range I immediately fell in love with the collaboration done with PATTERNITY. The Pattern Specialists have taken Clarks most iconic style – the Desert Boot and put their own unique twist on it.

Described as ‘resolutely non-cliché’, PATTERNITY founders Anna and Grace have applied another one of their specially designed patterns to the Desert Boot. Using a bold lacquered geometric print on black or white suede, the result is both timeless and timely; an ultra-modern, monochrome interpretation of a truly original silhouette.

Did anyone else get down to the press day? What did you think? What were your fave pieces?

OOTD: Pyjama Pants To Work - What?!

Hey heyyyyyyy!

In other news I am desperately trying trying to grow out my hair, hence why it looks so crazy, kind of like when Hannah from GIRLS goes crazy and cuts all her hair off, haha.

I want less this:
And more this:
But I fear I have a little while till my hair looks THAT good. By Summer though - finger crossed!

Hope everyone is well in the land of blogging :)
