I've been at home (London) for a couple of days now and it's great to relax and not have to be hurriedly writing essays. I've had time to practice with my bass and have just run through 'Do I Wanna Know. I also had a little look back at my journal entries for February which I'll put up here as I love seeing other people's journals.
Then I decided to look through my itunes and see all the old music I hadn't played for years and found I Blame Coco and I remember how obsessed I was with Eliot Sumner's husky voice and serious jaw line and amazing style. Ahhh now I have to print all these pictures out to put in my journal as style inspo. I love the crisp white shirts (button down white shirts are my favourite thing ever!) , jackets and shorts and androgyny. She's so beaaaaaautiful!

In my last post I was talking about the grittier aesthetic of London, and it made me revisit Eleanor Hardwick's Bleak House which is an amazing shoot. I live on an estate but for some reason I've only ever taken photos of it once so I'm definitely going to do that before I go back to Brighton.

I love this blurred make up- crown thing that is going on with Eliot and Arabelle Sicardi
and of course Hole's album art for Live Through This. I was brave enough to wear my huge blue petticoat to uni last week (which eventually I hope to sew into a Comme des Garcons style skirt) so maybe I'll put on some make-up, watch the moment Matthew McConaughey wins Best Actor instead of bby Leo, and then rock it to lectures.
So yarr, that sums up what inspired me this weekend. Anyone a fan??
