Bleached Out

Shirt - DIY, barbed wire necklace - Topshop, green denim shirt - Camden, trousers - local shop, shoes - Doc Martens
This is really awkward as I've just realised that I've got my hands on my hips in all my poses and I've used the same photograph twice by accident... I cannot be bothered to take the photos again or re-edit them, so you'll just have to excuse the terrible photos. I think this outfit would've looked awesome if I had a camouflage jacket to go with it, but since I don't, my green denim shirt which you guys are probably getting very fed up with will have to do!

I made this t shirt myself and I'm super happy with how it turned out! I will definitely be bleaching more items as there are so many possibility that you could have with this technique. One thing I forgot was that the t-shirt would stretch over my boob area, so the yin-yang sign is a bit lopsided, but it's only a minor problem. Would you guys be interested in buying t-shirts like this if I were to sell them on an on-line store (they would only cost £7.00 ish + P&P!!).

If you want to know how I made this t-shirt myself, click below to watch my tutorial. A huge thanks to MP for doing the bleaching with me and helping me film! (Please excuse the fact that the thumbnail for the video is my arse...XD)

Anyway, on the brighter side of life, I got my GCSE results yesterday! I got 11A*s, 1 A, A in AS Chinese and A in additional maths. Wooop! My dad has said that he's going to buy me a new laptop as a reward for my awesome grades, so that will mean that I will be able to edit videos which are over 5 minutes long without take a week.

You guys are awesome for still reading my blog even though I am a terrible blogger when it comes to consistency. All I know is that I am consistently inconsistent! That is mainly because I have run out of clothes to blog about, thus I will be posting more outfit posts when I acquire new clothes.

Ciao dahlings,

Headband and spike earrings - Topshop, fern shirt- pound shop, necklace - Spitalfields, skater skirt - River Island, tights - Henry Holland, shoes - Vans
Wowza, the ends of my hair look SO red! They are actually super, super faded, but hey ho, if my camera is going to make them look extra bright, why not?!

This top is one which I recently hauled in this video, and it was only £1! Bargain! It really reminds me of a shirt one of my favourite bloggers featured in her recent outfit post: "Botany Bitch". Samira's sense of style is just so cool with it being so 90s inspired and edgy. I must say some of her posts are a bit x-rated, but that just makes it more fun and she is so hot in them!

The title of this post refers to the Latin name of the cool fern print of my polo shirt. Try saying it out loud!

Anyway, thanks a bunch for following my blog dudies - I have finally reached 150 followers, which means it's time for a giveaway. I will reveal all the details in the next post. How exciting!

Mouldy Grandmas

Blazer/shirt thing - charity shop, fringe top - New Look, shorts - H&M, sandals - nicked off my sister (shhh!), earrings - xmas market
I'm not really a fan of this outfit to be honest, but I feel like it's high time that I posted something on this blog! I have only just realised that my top button of my shorts aren't done up... How scandalous!

The title of this post refers to the fact that this £1 blazer/shirt thing that I bought from a charity shop still smells of mouldy grandmas, even after going through the washing machine (an issue I mentioned in my haul video below!) Oh well, at least I look cool wearing it, even though it his rather massive, so I'm going to have to take it up a bit.

Other news include that I am going to do a giveaway once I hit 150 followers and it's going to be a good one - I have already picked out my prizes! Thus, there is no better time than now to hit follow on my blog as it is a giveaway that you are not going to want to miss.

Also in the mundane life of myself, A level results are coming out in two 2 days (I took AS level Chinese this year) and GCSE results in a weeks time which is rather daunting. I'm thinking of regarding myself opening my results and then posting it onto YouTube as I'm a massive internet nerd. Yay or nay?

Ciao for now!

Spiked headband - Topshop, necklaces - Claire's and China, crop top - H&M, rainbow shorts - Motel Rocks, shoes - Docs, denim shirt - vintage
I know what you are thinking: "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN REBECCA!"

I apologise for my unprecedented hiatus from the blogosphere; I have just not been motivated to write. However, fear not! Once every blue moon, I am in a strange essay writing mood and today is one of those occasions. Today I am going utilise this rare phenomenon which comes upon me to talk to you guys about this band I have been enjoying: alt-J! I usually keep these longer posts on my second blog (PeaaBrained), but I have a few things I want to tell you guys, so unlucky you!

The title of this post refers to a band that I've been digging. Known as "alt-J"or "∆", this band is really having a huge impact on the music industry as of lately, since they are being loved by a plethora of musical taste makers everywhere.

The name of their band refers to the delta sign that is created when you press alt-J on your keyboard. The delta sign (little triangle) is also a mathematical sign that symbolises change, which appealed to the band as the new name came at a turning point of their lives. I think this is awfully clever and it very much appeals to my nerdy tendencies, thus I automatically had a penchant for this band, even before I even heard their music.

As for their album "An Awesome Wave", I think it is a work of art. I have listened to their entire album during the duration of putting together this post and really reminds me to the album "XX" by "The XX" in 2009 (can you believe that it was that long ago? I know I can't!). My favourite parts of the album are actually the interludes and the nostalgic samples used. The hip-hop break beats, xylophone solos, falsetto harmonies and folky melodies are also a killer combination. As you can probably tell, I am truly terrible at describing music, so I encourage you to listen to the entire album below. If you are new to them, I recommend their lead single "Tessellate", but my personal favourite songs are "Dissolve" and "Interlude II".
I reckon that they are the most "indie"/"hipster" band in the history of ever, especially with lyrics such as "triangles are my favourite shapes" - even the name of the band is a triangle! With that being said, I hope that they have similar, commercial success as the moody emos that make up the XX. It's always fun to witness the irony when their elitist, hipster bubble is popped by the enticing lure of wealthy broadcasting companies and transnational car companies wanting their music for advertisements.

Now I've just gone off on a tangent and I think it is time to end this spiel as it's gone way off topic!


P.S. My brain is turning into mush after watching the entire series of "Revenge" in two days... It's just so good! Anyone else watch it? I love Nolan!
P.P.S. You may notice something different about my blog header and my YouTube background. My super cool friend Jack from "Desirous Designs" made it for me. Please check out his YouTube for more of his design portfolio. He's great at doing 3D graphics, backgrounds and making YouTube introductions, so if you are interested, just message him and tell him I sent you! :)
P.P.P.S Apparently on my last post, the video link somehow seemed to miraculously disappear, so I've fixed that problem! Here is an amended link to my "What's In My Bag" video.
P.P.P.P.S. The awesome Riley from had a great give away which I was very lucky to win! Check out her blog here.
P.P.P.P.P.S. This has been a weird post - apologies for the verbal vomit. I really am out of practise when it comes to blogging. I will post a more coherent post ASAP!

What's In My Bag?

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, I have finally posted again! So much for BEDIS, but I've been really busy recently.
This video was one which was requested. I love watching what's in my bag videos as it's fun to be nosy! It's pretty much a classic tag for all beauty/fashion vloggers. It's a bit slow to begin with, so feel free to skip to about 2 minutes in. I'm not even going to start moaning about how ridiculously long this video has taken to get out as it was really quite ridiculous, but I hope you guys watch it till the end!

See you tomorrow (I hope!)

P.S. I might do a proper ukulele video soon, yay or nay? :)
