'Keep Your Naked Flesh, Under Your Favourite Dress'


Hey Chummies!

Last, but not least, from the Tattered&Torn collection, comes this mammoth skirt in a simple tartan design.
This skirt is seriously impressive, and does all the talking whilst you dress down the rest of your outfit. The material is of such a great quality, and despite being a size up from my own, I am still in love with it.

Maxi/midi-skirts are such a handy trend as they do all of the talking. They can be really great for work, and last minute outings when all you want to do is wear a plain tee, but not quite sure how to jazz your outfit up a little.  I always tend to wear my maxi's with my trusty topshop cut out boots and cropped biker jacket, and it always goes down a treat. However, I absolutely love a maxi paired with some classic converse and loose fitting jersey for a more relaxed look.

See again, that simple black crop-top from Missguided. This is how I would personally style it (and have since this shoot). I love the look with the biker jacket and long-line necklace, as the mix in lengths make things a little more exciting, without flashing too much flesh. And with such a big skirt, it can be a good thing to flash a little up top to even it out!

Anyway, I have really enjoyed showcasing the fashion by Tattered&Torn and I am super stoked for the opening of the new online sales. I will keep you lot informed of it's opening, along with links, when the time comes.

Hope you lot are having a fabulous summer!

She Wears A Crown


Hey Chummies,

Today I am showcasing my favourite look from the Tattered&Torn collection. This look has super punk vibes with a casual spin. Check out those home-torn tights by yours truly!!

In the last year tartan really had it's time to shine, and now that the over-worn trend has dyed down, wearing tartan has come back to become a reflection of it's punk roots.
One of my favourite things about high-waisted skirts, is wearing a crop top with confidence. You get to flash the flesh, whilst hiding all sins- Amen!


Every girl has a go to jacket that goes with everything, and you could turn to this amazing over-sized Levi Denim for a bargain from T&T. I could see this jacket fitting in well along-side my leather and kimonos very comfortably!

And can we all take a minute to witness the glory of this floral crown by Flash Floozy. I got this in the post just before I took a break from blogging and it waited patiently before it had a chance to shine. And boy is she a beauty! Flash Floozy have an absolutely stunning range of products in their store, and I will be sure to be featuring more of their stuff in upcoming summer shoots, so keep your eyes peeled!
If you are still on the hunt for your floral headband (it is festival season after all!), then be sure to check out the store, here.


Only one more Tattered and Torn post left to share! 
Did you guys enjoy this collaboration?

Bubble Pop Electric


Hey Chummies!

Today's post has gone a little Colour-Crazy! Tattered&Torn have a collection of Levi-Shorts to sell and here are an amazing pale blue high-waisted pair in a size 6/8 that are going for only £18. Madness. The high-waisted denim short is a summer staple for every girls wardrobe, and I have a few different types, from the baggy boy-look, to the tight butt-bearing bad boys!

I am also wearing a psychedelic hand-dyed tee, also by Tattered&Torn. These seem to be all the rage for festival-goers and I have sported a few in my own time. My best friends and I just bought our tickets for Forfey Festival, and we are super excited to be spending a weekend together, road-tripping and camping (oh, and listening to sweet-beats!).

I wore some blue accessories with this outfit (that never get to leave my wardrobe as they are a little outlandish) and they actually work really well. The sunnies and bag are both from asos, which is not very surprising as I tend to turn to asos for all of my eye-wear for summer. Their range of sunnies are amazing and always decent value.

Hope this post has gotten you in a fabulous festival frenzy!

Sleepless in this City


Hey Chummies,

Today I am sharing only one image from the shoot with TATTERED&TORN that features this insane jumper that goes with everything and nothing all at once. The perfect hangover snuggle-friend.

The 12th of July (Orangeman's Day) has just passed by, and despite getting a day off work, like most people, I hibernated and watched from behind my laptop.
As the hateful bigoted and outrageously racist show played out all over the city, I couldn't help but feel saddened by how poorly this reflects on a city I have grown to love.
Belfast is my home now; filled with talented people, culture and amazing scenery. It is such a let down to know that there are people who walk the streets I do whose actions have made me sick to the bone over the last few days.
How embarrassing.

One positive aspect that I tend to focus on, is knowing that there are a larger majority of Belfast's population who oppose the display of hate and are sharing their views on social media sites. The internet has a great power now to get voices heard, without resorting to violence. I can only hope that people get more educated and that this city can finally unite in peace.
Wishful thinking, ey?

Love on a Rooftop



Hey Chummies!

Today I have another outfit in Collaboration with both Tattered&Torn and Missguided, and this time I have gone full-blown-festival!

The gilet and scarves (Tattered&Torn) have become quite the festival favourite, but wearing two in one go can be a bit much. Here, the contrasting green and red work pretty well together, and with the understated outfit, add the right amount of pizzazz! 

Again I am featuring the bralet, which is very wearable once you layer it up! Also by Missguided are these AMAZING crotchet doiley-esque high-waisted shorts. I am in love and plan to pull these bad boys out all summer, so you can expect to see these again!
I was very naughty for climbing on my neighbor's roof, but I am a professional, so please do not try this at home! And as always, I hope I inspired a few of you, and made you feel a little festival-frenzy!

Witch Don't Kill My Vibe




Hello Chummies!

So as you can see, I went and dyed my hair pink. This is a colour that I seem to keep coming back to every summer, and here I am again complaining. I absolutely HATE when my hair clashes with my fashion and everyone knows that pink and red just aren't great friends. But needs must and here I am breaking the rules!


For the next few posts, I will be sharing some of the amazing pieces from the online shop Tattered&Torn, which will be opening very soon for custom. VENT's images are going to be the face of the shop which is rather exciting and I was super stoked to be able to rummage through the items before the sales begin!

Here I am sporting a punk/witch vibe with a Gothic lip and daring bralet. The skirt is by Tattered &Torn and made with real quality fabric. Fabulous for coven meetings. Selling at £18, that is a mahooosive bargain that you won't want to miss out on!

Missguided sent me out a summery outfit package on my birthday and included was this very NOT me bralet. My mind has been changed, and I think I could brace the boob-less low-cut piece, providing I covered up a little more. This bad boy is selling at less than a tenner (here), which is also a great price for this versatile wardrobe staple.


I bought my sunnies from Primark for just a few quid, and I have been wearing them EV.ERY.WHERE! Just goes to show that you don't always need to fork out to find something you love!
& as always, my trusty topshop boots are out again. You guys must be sick of the sight of them!


Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed this different look from me and I hope you stay tuned for more pieces by Tattered &Torn this week! Until then you can check out the shops journey on the blog, here!





MemeBox Review - Colour Box : Red


I know that quite a lot of you guys are into your Birch//Glossy Boxes and I personally really enjoy reading other bloggers reviews on the items to see what they think of them, but I have never heard of MEMEBOX previously. The Korean brand contacted me last week about testing out a few of their products, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't skeptical. I love using make-up with trusted and well-known brands and I knew that I wasn't going to recognize any of the products in the box, but I guess that's what made me excited about checking it out.




This particular box was a Red Themed box, filled with plenty of different hues to create a rosy look in pretty much anyway you can imagine. There are lips, eyes and nail products to play around with and I was rather excited about all of the products being make-up (and full sized products), rather than a mash-up between body and make-up beauty products.




First up in the box we have Today Nail Laquer in #21 'Pink Sprinking'. This nail polish is one of the strangest colours I have ever had to describe. The image really makes it look like a neon pink colour, but in real-life it has quite a coral tinge to it. The polish is very vivid, even with a thin layer and dried quite quickly, and was super easy to apply with the thick brush. It has a summer vibe about it and is now my favourite nail polish in my current collection. It has chipped a little since application, but I have been doing quite a bit of handy-man work around the house!




I was intrigued by the Eye-Shadow by L'Ocean in Red. I mean, if we are all going to be honest here, who in their right mind is wearing red eye-shadow (other than on October 31st!). It was a very strange one indeed, but I tested it anyway, and was still very impressed. This has to be the most pigmented eye-shadow I have ever come across. Yes, I know, Red. But if this is what their eye-shadows are like across their brand, I would definitely like to try them out. I then went on to play about with the colour, and dabbed it lightly across the apples of my cheeks to create a really adorable blusher. I will have this as a blusher forever it seems.




A quirky addition to the package was this interesting Two Colour Lip Gloss by Cheek Room in #6 Red. Now, normally I say a big NO to lipgloss, as it can really make me look like a hooker, and hair always ends up sticking to it and it's generally been a no go since the 90s. But this was rather interesting. I put it on my bare lips and was surprised by the sweet colour it gave them. An hour later and the initial shine had faded (I am not complaining) but the colour remained. Not a bad impression from a product I would have never intended to buy.




A welcomed addition to the package, Dearberry's Flirt Lipstick in #08 Red Parade. I love me some red lippy and now I love me some Flirt Lippy. The colour was very very pigmented, but not drying or too matte. It was actually really nourishing like lipbalm, but the colour managed to stay put pretty well without liner. See below my little swab. The colour was again a bright pinky red with colour tones running through it too. A perfect statement product! I am genuinely impressed by dearberry now, I just wish the packaging was less cheesy.





And finally, on to my favourite product from the package, Tosowoong Gel Pencil Liner in #04 Burgundy. I have been through so many stages of being obsessed with burgundy, then heading back to bright lights only to plunge back into burgundy pits of berry hues again! And I think this product has made me miss wearing the sultry dramatic eye-look that we all opt for in winter. The liner was quite precise and somewhere in between gel and kohl liner, with the staying power of liquid liner. What-ever it is, I love it and I am in love with this liner!




I have visited the MEMEBOX website and I think their concept is really great. Each box comes with a specific theme, like this one. You can choose what box you would like and whether you want to know what is inside of the box or not. I think part of the magic is not knowing what it is you are getting, but some girls might disagree and like to know where their money is going before they spend it, if so this would be perfect for you!

I really loved finding new brands, products and having a bit of fun with make up again and I think that most other girls would find this great too! It's a great gift to yourself!

Big up to Memebox for sending the package out, and if you were interested in this, why not go and grab your own at us.memebox.com?
