There Would be no Better Place

I've been listening to a lot of music that's less about lyrics, well a lot of it has lyrics but they're not what I mainly love about the song and they're not really great for blog titles. Anamanaguchi, Grimes and recently I've gotten into London Grammar a bit too. Mainly because I've been watching a lot of kexp sets, I like them because you get a couple of songs from the artist and then also a bit of an interview and it balances perfect. I've listened to a few songs from Radio One's live lounge from London Grammar but they're all covers (though their cover or Wrecking Ball is amazing). Anyway I'm blabbing now so I should probably talk about something else.
I took these photos yesterday and I was a lot less wary than usual while taking these photos and two sets of people walked up behind me when I was off guard. I was spinning in one of them and then when an elderly couple came up I was bent over taking photos of my shoes... I looked reaaally odd. Oh well, at least it wasn't someone I knew, the old man gave me some photography suggestions anyway.

I bought the Jacket in H&M last week and it's just what i've been looking for for a while. I've been making patches for a denim jacket before but I really want to do a black and white back piece for this, maybe take off and rearrange that patches I already have on them. I'm not sure yet, I have too many ideas. However, if any of you guys find any cool back pieces (there are some really great patch shops on etsy) then let me know. I might make my own... there's just too many options!

I tried something different with posing for some of these photos, I really felt like spinning, so I did but getting a spinning picture is harder than it seems... I'm also really loving my nails at the moment. I did a white coat as sort of a base and then added some Barry M sparkly paint over the top. It worked well.
I seemed to have talked (well typed) a lot in this post, which I've been meaning to do more of, I feel like I want to talk to you guys more. Thanks for reading.

This Mess We're in

My brain is a bit of a mess at the moment everything seems to be all over the place and this post reflects that a lot. It''ll all be back to normal once I've finished exams though, it's just a weird patch. Just trying to have fun and revise lots I suppose. Title is the song This Mess We're In - P.J Harvey ft. Thom Yorke. They're both amazing and together it's just perfect.
This post is a little messy, especially one of the photos. I wasn't going to post the swing photo but after I spent about an hour on the one photo I felt like I had to post it. Remind me never to take photos in the dark, in black clothes, if I'm going to add my own backgrounds. It ain''t easy, but there we go they turned out pretty cool.
All photos are mine.

Flower headband - Claire's// Jumper - Sparkle and Fade @ Urban Outfitters// Skirt - Pins & Needles @ Urban Outfitters// Boots - Doc Martens//
So yeah, that's my post for today. Dunno what I'll do next, I haven't got anything lined up so I'll see what happens. Thanks for reading!

Snow Angels

This post has nothing to do with snow, I just love Anamanaguchi and that song but it has no lyrics so I just had to use that title. I''m not completely happy with these photos but I'm a bit indecisive at the moment and being perfectionist. At the end of the day every photo I post doesn't have to be absolutely perfect. I was just going to end up sat editing for an extra hour or so to probably not get any further.

Dress - YesStyle// Shirt, Harness and Socks - Topshop// Creepers - Schuh//
I'm liking the pictures the more I look at them, and I love the outfit so the pictures don't matter that much. These pictures were from when i went to see Divergence yesterday (a pretty good film) and I have some other pictures from before that have a bit more editing involved which shoould be up soon.
Sorry I'm not that talkative, my mind seems to be in a different place at the moment. I guess it will be back in reality soon.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading.

Ok so I couldn't think of a better title, but it kind of works. I've been excited to show you guys these pictures since I took them on Saturday. I was just playing around and they turned out surprisingly well.
Just a warning, that some of these pictures are a little creepy. The images make me look a little dead/trapped under ice so don't look further if you don't think you can handle.
My mum hates the photos because they're creepy and I look dead, my Dad loves them and said he should just give me all of his camera stuff, aha. Guess you can't please everyone right?
Photos taken with my scanner.

I'm actually really pleased at how they turned out, yeah they're kind of creepy but also kind of cool. 
I created a portfolio here for my more serious (is that the right word?) photography, it's something I'm interested in so I though why not take it a step forward.

I hope you guys liked these photos and thanks for reading.
