So there hasn't been a music update recently, so hold onto your tophats peeps coz this one is a dazzler!
Oh Land has been around for a little while, but she is shit hot and, trust me, you're gona want a sniff!
She trained as a ballet dancer but switched to music, because, well i don't know why but i'm assuming it has something to do with ballet not having many male groupies (highly likely)
She is playing XOYO on tuesday (the 17th may) and i am hoping to go myself so maybe she will be even better live!
Right now my favourite song of hers has to be Heavy Eyes:
The video of this is pain old MENTAL, so very glam and very *warning to those who have epilepsy* if you know what  i mean!!
The sound itself reminds me a lot of Roisin Murphy's solo stuff, and it pains me to say but i think she might even be better! sorry Roisin!

Oranges and Lemons

Make up trends this summer are set to hit the brighter side of fashion, with vibrant colours such as yellow, orange and green to be very key.
Now if you want to safer option of this trend, go for nail polish, i always prefer barry m as it is best for money value, finish and lasts the longest without chipping from my experience. 
Now these three colours have been tipped to be rather hot, however I've got a feeling that mint green will make a fresh appearance next year so get a heads start now!

When using yellow as make-up you need to be very aware of your skin and eye colour, yellow is great for green or brown eyes, but washes blue blinkers out a bit. best method is to just give it a go and see what you think.
Works great with olive skin tones, generally will make your skin look more vibrant, but instead of smothering it all over your eyelid just work around the outside half of your eye socket and outwards, blend it with browns, and finish with a nude lip and strong brows.
Now your probably thinking... orange, how does that work? well its not really an orange colour that you will see on the highstreet, its more just the colour they are using on the catwalks, but a coral lip works just as well, and if you're feeling fruity (see what i done there) then mix two shade of lipstick on top of each other to give a coral orange blend, rather than a coral pink, which is here there and everywhere right now! make sure not to cake on the make up too much around the eyes with bright lips. its one of the other, never both, in the same way you have legs out of chest, never both. unless your getting paid to do it of course!

Its a little late for a spring clean, but not for a summer redecoration!

Like so many of us, I missed the whole spring clean thing, apparently cleaning is not my forte! (my housemates will be screaming "No sh!t" at this) but i like to keep things fresh and up to date by redecorating! and my most recent decoration to my uni room as been inspired by a trip to none other than ikea! gotsa lota love for ikea! 
so i spend too much money on a bin, as i've lasted 5 months without one and my life was just not complete. 
But i'll get to the good stuff. 
Faux Flowers!
 Now i am a perfect target for faux flowers, i have little to no patience, and never get around to throwing out dead flowers- i like to say there is something rather poetic about keeping dead flowers from valentines day, but get real, its like the middle of may now and they still haven't moved from the old cava bottle i put them in- so i invested a whole 13p per flower (yes ikea!) and got creative when i returned home.

so basically i blue-tacked them to the back of my head board. the only hazard being that i have to lean against the wall rather than the head board otherwise i bend the flowers the wrong way... clearly a well thought through decision!
but i think they look pretty sweet, and those lucky few who have seen the inside of my pit- i mean bedroom- have complimented them so... go and set your mits on some faux flowers, no watering cans necessary
