Sweet Escape

Nick Knight shoots Karlie Kloss in this colourful and illustrative couture editorial. The soft pastel colouration and the hazy, fairytale landscapes provide a stunning backdrop for the clothing. This is one of those insane editorials that you cant help but stare at. With clothing by Chanel, Dior, Gaultier and Armani Prive escape into this magical world of bunnies, birds, dolls, cake and candy. I absolutely love how the photos all look like surrealist watercolour paintings and I can definitely see influence from the likes of Marie Antoinette, Kukula and Mark Ryden

Kukula and Mark Ryden are two of my favourite artists.
What do you think of their work?

Silver Summer

With summer fast approaching it’s high time we all start embracing the change, and why not start with our hair!?

Tired of my naturally dark locks, I set out to find something fresh and daring to compliment the festive season. It wasn’t long before I stumbled across this striking silver hair, and fell in love immediately. The great thing about this tone is that it compliments most complexions, and also works well with the addition of another colour. A subtle lilac, turquoise or pink hue can create a beautiful accent to this already stunning colour.

*adding pastel hues*

So what’s the catch? Unfortunately for us dark haired girls, this colour will require some heavy duty colour stripping, but I’m sure you will agree with me that it’s totally worth it. Please let me know what you think of my “Silver Summer” hair!

Should I go for it?

Some DIY

Im loving this DIY colourful soles tutorial I came across. It can refresh a pair of your old trusty black shoes that you dont wear anymore and make them unique and eye catching. Obviously stay away from red because no one wants to be caught with fake Louboutins ;)

The process is simple:

  • prep the shoes with rubbing alcohol to help the colour stick
  • paint a base coat or two of white nail polish (coats dry for 10 min)
  • paint your colour coat (preferably two coats)

otherwise you can try this next tutorial for a splash of colour
