Rest In Peace Miss Kim.

There are no words to explain my sadness. She is one of my favourite models. Daul Kim, was spunky, fun and didn't seem to care what anyone thinks. Another soon to be supermodel, taken away. I can't even write this.

For a video to remember Miss Daul visit

Rihanna + Nokia Secret Gig.

I know I know. I am sad. I really want to win these tickets...

If I do I think my boyfriend would love me forever. I think I have googled it so much and entered every single competition possible, which looks real....

I know you can watch it online, however being there is a totally different feeling. The location isn't so secret anymore since one site told me where it is. No matter, now I can figure out how to get there from after uni... IF I WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS!

Fingers crossed! xoxo

The East End Thrift Store

I know I know it's been a while. I have been doing constructive things with my time. Like.... uni work (meh!), and going to work (Anthropologie, crazy busy!)! I haven't forgot my little blog.. I have news for you... lol.

For the East Londoners, aren't we a lucky lot.

I went to my first thrift store in London, The East End Thrift Store, with fellow blogger Rochaelle from The London Doll and a few others. It was amazing... all in the back streets like East London's little secret. No where near anything fashion related believe us. We had to walk down back streets thinking it was a set up, then we saw the light and the clothes dancing at us.

Everything you could think of dresses, jackets, shirts, underwear...everything for both genders, well except no underwear for the men.. poor studs lol.

With cheap wine in hand we went round and round amazed by the quality and prices. I got an amazing navy blazer for £15! Yes you heard me right fifteen quid. Rochaelle went blazer happy and got I think three blazers and a belt.. for about £50. So satisfied with ourselves we had to take a picture, but of course the location is a secret. We can't tell everyone......

Okay, okay.... here's the link. Just don't tell the world, or else it might not be so cheap....

sorry for the bad quality images.. my phone is crap, upgrade soon.
