#nailart and a new ring

I went on a recent Instagram rampage and got sucked into a #nailart black hole, but out of it came my obsession with @nail_unistella and I made the decision to become my own nail artist, with the help of some Q-Tips and artist tape. Up close, they’re a bit messy, but from afar they’re passable. I’m also trying to give my nails a rest from nail polish, I want those natural strong nails y’all, so the dot technique is where I’ve been at for the past couple months. I feel like negative space is the way to go right now, so I’ve saved some down on Pinterest like the middle-aged lady I am.

Oh and featured below, my dad’s signet ring redesigned and updated for my index finger. Keeping it in the fam.

Back when it was warm

It has been a crazy few weeks, but don’t worry I’m here to tell you all about it. Hold tight. You’re now looking at a newly promoted digital designer, junior no more! I got crazy busy at work and then all stressed out with the whole “Am I getting the promo or not”, so kind of dropped off the face of this blog :( but it’s all guccy now

Apart from that, it’s been snowing in London and I, for one, am not about it because as we’re no longer in school, snow days aren’t really snow days after all, am I right? So instead, to combat the colder weather, I’m sharing a couple photos from Greece, when my sister and I shot some images for Lacausa for their summer collection…I’m dreaming away

Baby Blue Lacoste

Bringing back that Lacoste look

Oh my lord guys, I didn’t wear any makeup for this look and I already have a young moon-face, not to mention I’ve got no tan and wearing a large Lacoste shirt…I present to you: me, cosplaying as a 12 year old boy. I would have normally thrown on a pair of hoops, but I lost one of them so I’m back on the market for a thicker, Sade pair. I’m thinking these ones.

Anyway, I love wearing this shirt, and just stomping around in some beat up jeans and an oversized polo that makes me feel like a girl on the move, getting shit done. I think that might be my favorite feeling, so anytime I’m wearing something like that is a time to celebrate.
Paired with my sister’s old Guess jacket, I’m good to go.

New new new, trying out some flash photography

While wearing an everyday look

I’m sharing a pretty typical, everyday look today. I had a different outfit planned for this post, but was not feeling it at all. I gave it a solid 10 mins of effort, then had to go home to change. Does that ever happen to you guys? Instead I threw on a classic get-up – band tee, my Moschino quilted jean jacket and a Fruit of the Loom sweater to wear as a scarf. I love wrapping a sweater around my neck and pretending I’m either a preppy frat boy or a 35-yr old mother on my way to pick up my kids from golf camp. It’s fun to play around.

Given the sheer amount of times I wear this jacket, I’m surprised that it’s only the second time I’ve shared this on here. I got this for £30 in a charity shop two years ago, and I’ve hardly taken it off since. I have two goals for this blog – buy smarter and share more. I might be sharing the same piece for years to come, but at least it’ll be totally genuine.

I’m also loving this flash photography, I have a feeling it’ll be back every once in a while. We have a new creative director at work who’s all about trying everything out, change this and change that, and I’m kind of inspired to try that here. I’m excited to see what’s to come!!

Designer Spotlight: Margova Jewellery

angelebaby hayett mccarthy margova jewellery

I originally started this “Designer Spotlight” to showcase new designers/labels I’m super into,
but it died out as I thought I had to own and wear it to share it…but I want to revive this series as I really just want to share everything this year, as much as possible.

So, for the second ever instalment, I present Margova Jewellery, and specifically this King of Kings earring. Modelled by Hayett McCarthy, who also was the subject of this painting by Chloe Wise, this earring is just me all over. I’m all about the cross as a symbol, and I have cross studs on my ears and two crosses + a little baby angel (ahem, angelebaby) on a gold chain that I never plan on taking off. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this photo after an art editor I was assisting at work showed me this as a ref, and I really think I need to either splurge or recreate this as I can’t tell if the €149 price tag includes the hoop as well as the pendant (??!?). Either way, getting my gloss out in preparation.
