Remember when I went to Den Bosch and Amsterdam? I took lots of photos with a theme of red and, not saying that red is my favourite colour or anything but I’ve done it again in Tokyo. I just got back from an amazing two week holiday and I noticed I’d done the same thing and taken some red photos at a local temple. Not that its hard to find red in Japan.
Somehow my trip to Den Bosch and Amsterdam ended up being very quiet and peaceful. Looking back at my photos I notice a lovely thread of red going through them. I would even go as far as to call it a photo story. Continue reading
Odd thing to say, but I really appreciate how well signposted the attractions are in Leeds. I really had no problem finding my way around. While following the signs and enjoying a walk by the river, I spotted the one above. I assume it’s some kind of art piece, but I laughed and it caught me by surprise so I had to take a picture.

There is something very aggressively teenage about provocative slogan t-shirts. Examples of why I’ll never be taken seriously as an adult from my own collection include;
- A tight, black t-shirt which states “PARENTAL GUIDANCE. EXPLICIT CONTENT”
- A jumper with “BITCH 01” emblazoned across the front
- Another jumper which I cover up when there’s children around that just says “SUCK A FUCK” outright.
I can’t explain what compels me to purchase such things, but I’ve gone and done it again.
Now that I’ve transferred all my posts over I can start giving you all fresh content again! At some point, I’m going to have to do the boring job of fixing all the pictures, but it’s been too long since we had an update so let’s have one.
The past couple of months have been exceptionally busy; I’ve been traveling a lot with work, everyone I know has had loads of drama, I’ve had 10,000 things to do in general so not much posting has been happening. I’m really sorry about that. This blog is usually something I do to chill out but I haven’t had the energy at all lately. Anyway.
I’ve mentioned more than once on this blog (I think) that I’m gluten intolerant. I’ve wanted to share all my favourite places to eat and what I make of new GF offerings for a while, but never actually sat down and done it…until today! I’ve also wanted to write down a comparison of all the store bought gluten free breads I’ve ever had but it doesn’t really fit the glamourous fashion thing I’m trying to do here, but I will do it eventually though because you need to know how I feel about bread! For my birthday (July 3rd so talk about late-blogging) I decided to get dressed up and hit the town – but every good party girl needs to eat and American Pizza Slice just released a new gluten free pizza so I thought I’d try it out. Here’s how I overdressed for pizza:
Top and skirt: Sonia Rykiel
Bag: Dr Martens
Lip colour: NYX Liquid Suede in Tea and Cookies
I haven’t really felt like blogging much in post-brexit vote England, the rainy weather pretty much reflects my mood on the whole thing – even though my outfit is the exact opposite. I know I don’t look what people consider to be “foreign” whatever that is, but my family are immigrants who came here in 91/92 to flee a war in our home country. For a long time I have been very proud to be a citizen of this country but at the moment I am bit anxious, a bit unsure as to whether I feel safe and who in the streets would tell me to leave if they knew where I was born. I’m very lucky to have the privilege that I do in being white and having an English accent, so I try and use these traits to speak for people who cannot speak for themselves in this country and this language and who have been and will be scapegoated and picked on in this country in the future. I feel lucky to live in Liverpool which is such an accepting and friendly place. I am trying to be positive and hopeful and remain outspoken on issues which affect other people who come to this country as refugees and immigrants such as myself but for now please just have patience and let me heal and please enjoy these photos of a lovely day at the Tate Liverpool.
Georgia and I decided to go to Manchester Gallery and see the Fashion and Freedom exhibition, which features fashion items inspired from students and industry professionals on the theme of world war 1.
