Ok so it's like 5.20 am. I had a horrid nightmare that has rendered me incapable of sleep [yes I know I sound about 5 but it was some scary ish]
The point is now that I am on the internet trying to keep my mind busy so I don't think about it and I have found an artist that I cannot WAIT to get hold of her stuff. It is a new style of music which she calls tribal electronica [you have to hear it to get it] as she is mixing her nigerian roots with some bashment-y/electro poppy type sounds [you REALLY do have to hear it] and I LOVE it.
The song renegade is going to be hot and I am super inspired by her. She too was originally on the path to lawyer-dom before throwing caution to the wind to pursue her love for the arts. I am not so brave sooo I will be harnessing my big brain for the time being. OKOK enough chitting and chatting from me check out my new music love.
aside: I stumbled upon this beautiful artist on the blog of my newest follower and fellow blogger ChellyWellzShop - check out her blog too if you haven't already.
love, peace & the strength to follow your dreams [unless they are the nightmare-ish type. gross]
well i'm off to go listen to the renegade sneak peek...once again....and again..
I think you should check out their blogs and I am not really sure IF I am allowed to have a favourite buuuut I do...not telling though. check them all out and check out the post from CKMS...methinks this will be a frequent affair. It's a nice way to meet new bloggers and get yourself out there too.
Also: HI NEW FOLLOWERS *she waves* - hope you're all doing good. find me on twitter and tweet at me like a tweeting twit
Ok so for the past couple of days, I have been stuck in the house studying. I was starting to feel like Boo Radley so I REALLY had to leave the house!!
I put on this awesome blazer that my housemate got for me and then I started walking. Incidentally, I ended up at my fave store [dunno how that happened really].. and I picked up a new pair of shoes!! and erm maybe the top too...
close up of the shoes...right up my alley they are!!
Then erm I walked some more and ended up in Primark. BUT twas lucky I did because I picked up even MORE shoes...hence the happy face!!
I originally left the house in this top [becoming a fast fave it is!!]
I REALLY need to stop wearing this ring but it makes me happy!!
I MAY have got them in black too...
you know what I didn't get??
ANY BLOODY STUDYING DONE!! baaad nicola!!
Soooo yeah, on that note...I really must dash. Have to learn the ins and outs of purchasing registered land. Exciting no??
When I took these pics, I really couldn't find matching socks but erm I hear fashion is evolving these days....everything goes???
In spite of the post title, the focal point of this post is really this blazer. My only short sleeved one in the collection [a thrifted find of course]. I almost didn't buy it but then my housemate made me come to my senses and BOOM...the collection increases..
I have been going through strange phases of recent.
First my crazy nail polish experiment phase
And now my extreme black gold phase
My housemate pointed out that I keep wearing black and gold, my make up is smokey eye black and gold, my hair is black and gold AND I just bought my L'oreal extra black mascara [with the black and gold tube...but that really isn't my fault is it??]
Then she caught me painting my nails black and then adding a layer of gold over it...
that turned out pretty cool, the result was an awesome metallic black gold colour.
