I wasn't originally going to post these but then, why not? Rediscovering love for bubbles and their iridescently brilliant colours. :)

Primark top painted by moi
Urban Outfitters belt
skirt from Scotland
Doc Martens
"Prada" purse from Malaysia

I remembered I hadn't worn my purple lipstick in a's sadly impractical. Matches my purple purse which of course is a fake but believe me when I say I bought it for the colour not the brand name (although I do so love Prada). Also I'm having an obsession with green and I'm really sad the colour in my hair is washing out so quickly, can't even photograph it properly because it's so light. Gonna have to do it again soon! :)

Primark flower headband
Topshop dress

In preparation for Leeds fest this year I dipdyed the ends of my hair turquoise! I've been wanting to do it for a while and had vague plans but I'm a novice dye-r so didn't think I'd get round to it, but a few days ago I had a #YOLO moment and did it with J who did her ends purple. (I'm so doing purple next time..) I wanted more greeny but it was either this colour or lime green bleh. I think it looks awesome... but I'm not sure how permanent "semi-permanent" is... and my mother said I have to look "respectable" by September... Meh. :)

Ps. My ends are darker and more greeny then it looks here, swear down.

River Island tshirt
Asos shorts

More pictures from España, taken at the Dalí museum - the best laid out museum ever because there's no proper order and it's a circle - with part of the largest surrealist sculpture in the world may I point out, Gaudi's park Gruell, in the lovely old building housing the Picasso museum, an amazing cactus garden, wandering the main city and a quiet afternoon on a secluded beach in the cliffs. Told you I was a good art student - counting Barcelona and London and Manchester, I swear I've been to about 15 art museums in the past 3 weeks. :)

Our sacred family







These photos from la Sagrada Familia are so beautiful they deserve a post of their own. The most famous and influencial Modernista architect, Antoni Gaudi became increasingly religious during his life and la Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is his masterpiece. He took over the project in 1883 and despite his untimely death by tram (lol) in 1926 and the interuption of the Spanish Civil War, construction  continues today. If you're ever in Barcelona, obviously go look at it because it is the city's most iconic landmark, but also brave the queues to go inside because it the light is absolutely breathtaking. :)

Ps. Ooops most of them didn't post because I messed up the html but fixed that now!
Pps. These photos are completely unedited.

kurta from India
print dress from Kenya
Primark sandals
bag from Malaysia
 Asos shirt
Topshop striped shorts
Topshop chambray shirt

A family trip to Barcelona last week gave me the chance to practise my Spanish (/guess at understanding the Catalan), see my Texan cousins and explore a city full of beautiful and wacky buildings (and complain about the blinding sun and sweltering heat). These are photos taken while gawking Gaudí buildings and park, wandering round the medieval old town, discovering hip veggie resturants, exploring the Costa Brava and visiting art museums because I'm a good little art student. One photo is at the Joan Miro museum where I deliberately/fortunately/accidentally matched my dress to his work. Cute creepily innocent creatures FTW. :)

H&M shirt
gifted glass necklace
Urban Outfitters jumper

I love this soft boxy bunny shirt... also reminds me of a joke I have with some friends about bunnies and YOLO. Unless you're a cat of course, then you have 9 lives. Or a Hindu. :)

Shady lady



Urban Outfitters sunglasses
vintage dress
Primark belt
self-made necklace
gifted metal cuff
Ganapathi ring from Malaysia
Sekonda watch
Underground creepers

Picked up this soft soft dress because I wanted something casual that could be dressed up in a chilled way. But mostly because the floral print was so funeral-Virgin-Suicides. And I'm a sucker for a skater skirt. :)

London 2012




vintage denim jacket
tour hockey shirt
gifted England flag fake nails
self-made flags

This past week I've been at the Olympics! While I thought I had zilch national pride and/or pep, I discovered I have a smidge. Enough to see some swimming and, wait for it, 8 hockey matches. Yep, 8. Gotta admit, the Olympics in my home country is kind of awesome, onceyou leave too-cool-for-you London and get into the park itself. Pictures of the sports will follow in a few days. :)

Ps. I was born in America, if you didn't know and were wondering about the flag. I also made an Indian flag but didn't get a good picture of it (I'm wearing it in the previous post but you can't see it very well).

Living on a Prayer


Did I tell you I tiedyed my bedsheets? The dreamy grey crinkles and swirls make me feel like I'm sleeping on a cloud and the glow-in-the-dark stars and planets on my ceiling only add to the effect. :)

Fluorescent Adolescent

^ Arctic Monkeys


self-made necklace
top from Ark
old leggings
L's parka (emergency borrowing due to the damn weather)
Doc Martens
bag from Malaysia

 Lots of love for the Arctic Monkeys at the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony last night (and the Rizzle Kicks song played at the beginning of the teen section WOOP). I've been feeling very British and cool and moody recently...could this be... national pride?! Usually I have less than zilch. :)

Rainbow cake






Me and J went to the cutest cafe and had rainbow cake, which inspired us to make our own... they turned out pretty well (see above photo of be being a domestic goddess) and beautifully brightly coloured. However we put so much food colouring in that they tastes pretty, well, gross. Too many E numbers = headaches. But they were pretty so it's ok. :)
