22. - Sweet roses, dead roses.

My entire outfit has been thrifted and jewellery is off ebay/etsy

Let's talk about mum jeans. It wasn't until recently when Taylor was talking about mum jeans and I was slightly confused by what she meant but what I did know is that it made her butt look fab and I was like dayyymnnn girl. Then this morning I was furiously searching through my wardrobe for an outfit to wear today and found these! Did I know I had them.. no.. why? Because I own to many clothes. MUST. STOP. I am now calling them 'miracle butt enhancing mum shorts'. Mum shorts/jeans = will make any butt look even better because all butts are good. 

Ciara and I went to Brighton today to get a chocolate fix and I don't think I will need to eat chocolate for a while. It was such a beautiful day and the end of winter is finally almost over! Bring on Summer! I mean Spring!

Interlude - My Grandma

Behold my amazingly talented Grandma! I've been hiding out in her jungle oasis for the past five days or so learning the ways of ceramics and just being a really amazing granddaughter, duh. I don't even know where to start on this text post because I am so overwhelmed with how relaxing and unreal this past week has been.

My Grandma is talented beyond all means exploring all fields in ceramics, jewellery, dress making, silver smithing and just being in her presence I am so inspired. Her whole house is like a living dream for me, animal print EVERYTHING and boy do I mean everything even her toilet seat has leopards on it! I'm thinking this is where my obsession with leopards and jungles has stemmed from so thanks grandma for that! Her backyard (perfectly feug sui) is a serenity in its own and I could live there forever.

I took these pictures yesterday for a little ceramics exhibition she held at her house and I was in inspiration overload and wanted everything, I mean how could you not?! I look up to her so much, she is such an inspiration and has made the most out of what she had and look at where she is now! 

I have also now begun a ceramics class at uni and who better to learn the ways of the trade than off my Grandma and let me tell you now that it is hard work yet very rewarding and an sensual medium to work with.

21. - Hologram Sunset

hologram shorts - my mum's from the 90's, harley davidson top - vintage, boots - thrifted, vest - vintage

Sorry for the half-ass of an outfit post but I honestly haven't had the chance to take blog photos because a.) my mother (2nd photographer) and her boyfriend just got back from a holiday in Thailand and b) I'm back at uni. However mum did bring me home some goodies mostly anything with an elephant on it because I am slightly obsessed with them. These photos were taken sometime early in the year when my mum had first given me a bag of her old clubbing goodies including these hologram hot pants, score!
