Mac's new Wonderwoman range...

Most people who I know will tell you I ♥ Mac, I would recommend them to everyone and anyone, there's literally nothing about Mac that I don't love... The only time I'm unfaithful is when it comes to mascara, for that I use Benefit - Bad Gal.
I always love their collaborations and promotions and when I recently went on-line to spy what I wanted to buy, I just fell in love with the graphics, sound, concept and even packaging behind their new 'Wonderwoman' range, personally as far as make up goes, most is too bright for me, but it's defiantly perfect for most bright, bold and block colours next season! I may get a piece or two in to experiment with! Here's a taster of the graphics, but for the full experience head over to their website!

Another piece I'm loving wearing at the moment is either of these two colour nail varnishes!

Might not look it... but I did try something new with my eyes today... I guess camera doesn't show it too well, the flash lightens it out!

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and Monday goes well!

Thrifted Maxi Skirt

Just thought I'd show you my outfit for today - I found this skirt a month or so back in a charity shop in south London for like £3 but haven't had the chance to wear it yet. Today's it's day to shine!
What I need in my life is a hot photographer boyfriend.. but alas! So instead until I'm in the new flat I have to use my terrible computer web camera that I can't even completely fit in the shot!
Lunch over - I'm off out to find vintage furniture for our new Motel office that will be based on Great Portland Street in Oxford Circus! Exciting times!!

Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros - At the Old Vic Tunnels

Last night I had the pleasure of going to see for the first time 'Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros' play at the Old Vic Tunnels.
They played for a special 3 nights at the venue, creating a literally 'out of this world' installation gig experience. For the last 2 years the band have been creating unique engaging shows all over the world, but the show at the Old Vic is said to be their biggest yet.
As you arrived at the gig you were greeted by actors welcoming you to Mars.. only to then be further greeted by what i can only describe as wild west space cowboys, passing you a clear plastic bag (resembling a bag of illegal substances) telling you to take via the mouth and not the nose! The bizarre world just continued on, finding more unusual activities and actors round every corner. Sadly it was a little too dark for my Iphone to pick up any quality images so here's a few Zimbo

After the gig had finished the band announced that as we departed there would be cookies and milk for everyone at that we should all gather in the tunnels for an after show performance. So despite that fact my last tube was minutes away we muscled our way to the front to see a great acoustic performance in the tunnels.

I for some reason, can't upload any of my videos, however, here's a video I've pulled off you tube until I can get mine on, so you can see what I mean!


It truly was probably the best gig I had ever been to! I am defiantly keeping an eye out for any future performances from this amazing 10 piece band and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for any possible festival appearances! I highly recommend to anyone to get over to one of their gigs if you can!

My new 90's inspired Jeffrey Campbell boots turned up today - These are called 'spool' and I love them!
Got a meeting with very.co.uk tomorrow in Liverpool, so I think I may break them in for the first time then!
Someone needs to stop me, I literally can not stop buying shoes!
This is what I'm about to go buy on asos...

I need more money to fund my recent spend burst.... ekk.

Jeffrey Campbell does bags for summer 2011

Photobucket

After I got to see these beauties at the recent Pool trade show... It's time for me to tell you to get EXCITED.
JC has branched to bags and they ARE as good as the shoes!
Keep your eyes peeled for these leather tasselled babies! You'll most certainly find one on my back when I can get my hands on one!!!

My current Topshop Unique wishlist...

This is late as I know Topshop will of just shown Autumn / Winter at fashion week just gone.. but I haven't looked on Topshop for a while and there was defiantly an easy to create wish-list from the items they are currently stocking!
Photobucket
I'm defiantly a dark garment girl, everything black gets my attention!
I absolutely love these shoes... I'm defiantly running over to Topshop soon (if in store) to buy these babies.. I love the deep red tones of the leather that twists in to the black and shows a hint of red again within the tassel and although you can't see from this angle, Topshop Unique have again done a Dior / Fendi inspired wedge that looks as though it could be a wedge or stiletto.
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Sadly I don't think my bank will stretch to buy the gorgeous lazer cut top or the tassel bag, so It will just have to go with my cheap £25 white lazer cut top and a nice vintage tassel bag! Damn it!

My name's Jenna and i live in a box...

So London didn't hit a great start but fresh day, fresh out look and I feel a little better already today, however, the flat hunt so far today was unsuccessful but as I know, everything happens for a reason and the only way from here is up!
Here's a few pictures (as best as i could - to show you the box I'm currently living...
Photobucket
Bed - bathroom door just behind (that's the bottom floor - yes that's it)
Photobucket
Living room / kitchen - if you can eve call them that - its so narrow they couldn't even fit the sofa to face the TV!!
On a good note - i found this today.. fake yes, but I was still pleased...plus it was charity shop cheap!
Photobucket
Lastly... I thought, since we had cherry the other day... It can be Lola's night to shine...

Back to the flat hunting drawing board..... xx
