I thought I’d do a general catch up and a Weekly Digest in one today because it’s been a while. Lucky you, eh?
The last few weeks have been pretty busy catching up and actually socialising in the sunshine for a change, something I am resolutely against (kind of). I’ve been blessed with the people in my life who actually make me feel cooler and younger by proxy. So that’s been nice.
A few weeks back we went to Margate for my brother’s birthday and I can honestly say I’m in love – to the point I’ve been googling jobs there. It’s not a viable option but boy would I love to live in Margate – it’s just got a vibe I can see myself embracing and I want in. Again, it’s pie in the sky but it’s nice to have a dream, right? – and you just never know!
Much as I love Brighton I do worry about the lack of bang for your buck, rent is astronomical (as with a lot of places outside London I know) and even if we are ever lucky enough to buy our own place, it will be hard to find a good deal. So sometimes I do fantasise about starting a new life in other towns, I’m sure that’s quite normal. Anyway, for now Margate has my heart and maybe the novelty will wear off, maybe it won’t – all I know is that it feels good right now!
And this leads me seamlessly into the things I am currently digging.
The happiest place in the South of England? Possibly. And a great venue – I’m really interested in seeing Roni Size in August – either way I’ve been once and I’m obsessed.
I’m so into Mom jeans right now. High waisted is apparently the style I’ve been seeking all my life and now it’s here I can’t stop. Any wardrobe should boast multiple pairs though so it’s practical if nothing else to stock up. Right?
L-R: Blue mom jeans, £30 ~ Blue/Black wash mom jeans, £16 (in sale) ~ Washed Black mom jeans, £32
I’m not super crazy about rape revenge and this is exactly that, however I was pleasantly surprised by Revenge. I thought Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz as the abused Jen was really interesting to watch and while of course this is horrible, it’s quite an aesthetically pleasing body horror with a soundtrack and imagery reminiscent of Quentin Tarantino.
Honestly, some of the colours and shots are spectacular.
CYO This Line’s A Keeper Semi-permanent Eyeliner
This liquid liner does not budge and it’s a fine replacement for Seventeen Tattoo Me Eyeliner, which was brutally discontinued recently. Shame I spent £16 on the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner before I found this beauty, eh? The trials and tribulations of a riot grrrl, eh?
