Playlist - It's Easier To Look Punk Rock In Autumn

 I feel so bad not posting here in like a month and a half, but hopefully that should change soon! You'll just have to ~bear with me~ while I make sure I'm on top of school work rather than constantly leaving it till the last minute (unlike last year where I almost always did oops).

Autumn's coming in all of a sudden; apparently the British Summer officially ended today (not sure about everywhere else but it's probably around now too) and as of today it's Autumn! I'm so happy about this because even though Summer's great (no school, the Sun's out, that sort of thing) I prefer Autumn/Winter for the clothes, feel, and just in general. In fact I love Autumn so much that I decided to make a lil playlist to kind of try and welcome in all the **Autumny vibes** and stuff - enjoy!(ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Do you prefer Autumn or Summer? I'm curious because all over the internet there's this split opinion; half are practically in tears over the end of Summer, and half are having a little party as Autumn begins.

The Magic and Wonder of the Mysterious Teenage Bedroom ~Reuploaded~

It seems to be a well known fact just about everywhere on the internet that every teenage bedroom is amazing - it's just one of those things. Tumblr is filled with photos of rooms decorated until they can't contain any more personality, and the main characters of just about every movie aimed at teenagers have rooms to match them, no matter how crazy, strange or plain they are. I guess this post is mainly for inspiration, because I just took the photos down from my wall ready to change my room's look ready for spring and summer! 

This looks like it's from a movie or something but it's just so beautifully cliché, from the pom-pom on the floor to the flags on the wall to the shelves full of nostalgia ahhhhh 

You had me at 'whatever' 

It's photos like this that make me desperately wish I had a dressing table so I could make it at least half as cute at this

This looks so warm and cosy awww 

 Those star curtains are toooooooooo cute 

Do I see All Time Low lyrics yes I do yes I dooooo 

 I think the things that all of these ~fabulous~ rooms have in common are pretty lighting, stuff on the walls and a cosy and/or calm atmosphere; now that I've figured that out, we can move onto the DIY-ish bit! 

 Pretty Lighting
 Lighting is essential in giving your room a certain atmosphere-a simple change in the colour or brightness of the lighting can make your room look completely different! 

 This toadstool light from Urban Outfitters is said to emit a 'soft and warm glow' 

These paper lanterns from pbteen come in a variety of colours, that would each give a different effect.

 You can buy so many different kinds of fairy lights at fairylightuk it's unreal 

 Cool stuff on walls
 This part is more personal - you could put whateeever you want on your walls, or maybe even nothing at all! Some suggestions would be photos of you and your friends, photos you've taken, pictures of stuff you like or that inspires you to be creative, a map, inspirational quotes, posters of your favourite bands/artists, the list goes on and on. You could organise them messily, neatly, it's all up to you and your personal preference; this is part of what makes the bedroom yours. 

 This is another of the components of a bedroom that make it personal, give it life. They could be things that have sentimental value to you, or just something you like to collect or think looks pretty - anything goes! Also I am very proud of the fact that I managed to use the words 'nicknacks' and 'doodads' on this blog it may be one of my biggest achievements this year who knows. 

 Overall I think what makes a teenage bedroom truly ~*~magical~*~ is the amount of personality injected into it, the fact that it's almost like a shrine to both what you used to be into and what you're into now. If you dig deep enough into your room you might find even stuff from when you were a little kid, or even from last year, who knows. Try to make your room yours - you're going to be in it for a while, you might as well make sure it reflects what kind of a person you are! ~Jade(ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧
p.s. I had to reupload this because I am a big poo head and deleted the post the first time round oops

Playlist - It Rains A Lot In England

I'm in one of those moods where all I want to do is listen to English indie rock bands and be all creative and cutesy and stuff ahhhhh

Friday Night Pretty Things (PRETTY MAJESTIC THAAANGS)

 Okay so I should probably start off by apologising for the 183692743th time for my absence, the reasons for it are pretty much the same as they usually are; not enough time, and when I do have time I'm really burned out and tired so I can't really focus on blogging. Hopefully now that it's the Easter Holidays I'll be able to blog more! Anyway I'm going to stop blathering on and get to posting lalalaa

Style Crush - Grimes

If you don't know already, Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) is an artist, musician and music video director from Vancouver, Canada. Her music has been described in many genres, including synthpop, industrial, dark wave etc, but the name I think is best is 'dream pop'-it matches the dreamy, gorgeous tone of her music. Her sense of style is just as gorgeous as her music, and I'm going to talk about both!


This is one of my favourites of her songs - it's simultaneously calming and energetic, PLUS the video is amazing, shoe-string budgets really bring out the creativity in people. I love her different  outfits throughout the video too.

I was also thinking of getting a fringe cut like in this b/c it's so cute but idk whether I should?????

She's so cute yet so badass h o w


The video to Genesis is pure magic and weirdness and just watch it okay just watch it trust me

That dress-simple yet gorgeous

Those ponytails are cuuuuuuute  (◡‿◡✿)



Pastel vibes and stuff

Is it even possible to have this much perfection in one photo???

Okay so to lower this post down, Grimes is perfect and her style is a huge inspiration; hopefully it'll inspire me to be more experimental with what I wear, makeup etc!

Sorry for lack of posts, I haven't been able to access the internet properly until yesterday! Coursework's been as heavy as ever but I'm coping slightly better than I did before, so I should be posting more regularly. I still haven't started my zine, but hopefully I should start it soon and be finished by around the middle to end of April at the latest; maybe if you've made a zine (or even if you haven't) we could do zine swaps and send each other cute packages and stuff
