I’ve been noticing this trend emerging for a while now in editorial shoots & on the catwalk – but was surprised by how much imagery I found when I actually researched it. Glitter in general has been having a massive beauty moment – check out my glitter lips and eyebrows from 2014:

Here’s some glittery sparkle hair inspiration photos I’ve found:

How not to do it..

tumblr_ni0tiipNmQ1s50b0ho1_500Looks like a homemade ceramic Christmas decoration!?!

I intend on trying this out myself ASAP.  I’m thinking glitter hair spray from Claire’s Accessories will work nicely.  Literally the same stuff I used when I was going to the Primary School Disco haha. Nostalgia! I’d probably try some standard hair gel + craft shop glitter for the more slicked back styles & glitter roots.  If it works out well I’ll post it up ;).

Manish Arora AW14 hair & makeup

LOVELOVELOVELOVE ❤

Symmetrical stick ons, multicoloured eye flicks and bright fluttery lashes teamed with a pared-down, flawless face.  Nude lips and soft, natural eyebrows allow the focus to stay on the eyes.

Hair was worn in middle partings and knotted double buns either below the ears or minnie mouse style.  Fly away hairs gave the look a playful, child-like feel.  Hair was also worn with fishtail and french braided side fringes, leading into messy double plaits.

Ibiza: Moments in Love

Ibiza: Moments in love

Looking at photos of people partying gives me the same tingly happy feeling you get when you hear -that-song-you-heard-the-other-night-when-everyone-was-going-mental.  Good party photography will capture a moment of pure freedom from the daily grind; the let-your-hair-down joy that comes with clubbing.  No worries; just music, and smiles, and dancing, and sitting at the back having  heart felt conversations with someone you’ve only just met -what’s your name again?-

The Ibiza: Moments in Love exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Arts is a time portal into the island Ibiza once was:

SAM_0876 SAM_0878 SAM_0875The first thing that really strikes me about these photographs is the people’s style; care free and costume-like.  I would love to rock up to a club with my tatas out and a bit of silver paint on the nips.  And why shouldn’t I.  (Pass the silver paint)

As well as these photographs the exhibition contains past artefacts; magazines, posters, signed tickets, mix tapes etc.  I’m glad to say that I have a shoe box in my room that is absolutely full to the brim with my own collection of similar items.  I keep everything.  I’m going to have to get a bigger box soon.

All photos above were taken by me at the Ibiza: Moments in Love Exhibition.  It’s on until the 2nd of Feb so if you’re in London go down and check it out http://www.ica.org.uk/whats-on/ibiza-moments-love.  The photographs featured are a set of previously unpublished pictures by the British photographer Derek Ridgers taken at Ku in 1984.

Primark SS14

Primark have released their Spring/Summer 2014 collection- and it looks sweeeet well done lads.  Up the cheap and cheerful.

Primark ss14 1

Love the styling here as well – corn rows/braids are set to be a big hair trend this summer.  Primark has undergone a complete image overhaul and I applaud them for it;  they have continued to grow through the gloomy recession and altering their target market towards youth fashion will see them grow even more.Primark ss14 2

Printed matching sets – yes!!Top-8-10-Jan-skirt-12-

I would happily wear every one of the looks in the images above; which is a big step considering when I was younger I would’ve been embarrassed to be seen in Primark (and I wasn’t alone in that feeling).  I’ll be popping in store this week to check out the goodies.
