too lazy to accompany photos with text

"What did Lindsay say?"

Whilst in Brooklyn yesterday, I went to the Nitehawk cinema to see The Bling Ring, the much anticipated Sofia Coppola film. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint one bit. The music was sensational as ever, which is a definite detail Coppola always pays attention to, and it was perfectly matched to each scene throughout the film. What I noticed was that the more annoying actors and the slightly aggravating attempt at an American accent from Watson added to the characters greatly, as it made you more frustrated at these 'super rich kids with nothing but fake friends' (I'm lookin' at you Frankie). The acting, wardrobe and pace were phenomenal, and I would definitely recommend that everyone should see it. My own Father seemed to enjoy it more than I did, so you know it's ace.

Before I go, there is a monumentally awesome thing happening today, which I will share with you tomorrow. Ermahgerd. It's going to be real good...

The Met

Day one is going swell, just wanted to update and talk about my trip to the Met today. First of all, I saw the Punk exhibition after much anticipation. Honestly, it was a pretty sanitised depiction of what Punk really stands for, but I thoroughly enjoyed ogling all the designer outfits based on their ideas of Punk fashion.

After crying over the perfection that was the Burberry studded leather jacket (pictured above), we briefly looked at one of the Modern photography exhibitions, which inspired me to look at more of the photography of the artists online, so here are some of the favourites -

Sally Mann

William Eggleston

Nan Goldin

Carrie Mae Weems

That's all from me for now, I shall try and post tomorrow. So far we have planned to take a trip to Brooklyn, find me some vintage dungarees, visit some friends and go to the Nitehawk cinema to see... THE BLING RING. I AM SO EXCITED.

"Life's a bleach, then you dye"

Yesterday was one of the most exciting days of my summer so far, and here is why: 
The Bleach shoot that I was asked to take part in was SO cool, and I got my hair and make-up done, and to top it off, the stylist was Siobhan, a friend of mine! Oh my goodness, I loved every second and I am so excited/terrified to see how my pictures turned out. Here is a cheeky selfie I felt the need to take, seeing as I was essentially a model for 10 minutes...

THEN, to top off the madness, I went to the Die Antwoord concert at Brixton. Holy mother of Yolandi IT WAS EPIC. Last year was as well, with my trusty partner Tom, but this year I met up with my friends and I have never sweat so much in my 16 years of life, and although I thought I was going to die for maybe 2/3 of the concert, it was definitely worth every second. 

Sadly, they didn't play their latest song Cookie Thumper, which is now a favourite of mine, but here is the video. Summer 2013 tune.

Alcatraz Beach Club

Here are the pictures from the latest shoot with Tom, always a pleasure to help out with my modeling talents. Ha.


Pink again!

Excuse the vanity, but I got my hair dyed yet again! Bleach contacted me and asked if I would be interested in being photographed for their latest zine, which is full of pictures of new colours and styles, so obviously I accepted their offer! It was free, and I get a voucher for the next time I dye my hair, which let's face it, will be in the very near future. This weekend I am going to their studio and getting my photograph taken, super exciting, and I will report back soon!

Behind the Candelabra ft. Shopping

Yesterday was a pretty relaxing day, spent shopping with my mother, and then I went to see Behind the Candelabra with a couple of my best lady friends. Let's start with the latest purchases...


So in love with the flamingo print, American Apparel is always a winner in my book.

Onto the film review!

Before Elvis, before Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga, there was Liberace: virtuoso pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. A name synonymous with showmanship, extravagance and candelabras, he was a world-renowned performer with a flair that endeared him to his audiences and created a loyal fan base spanning his 40-year career. Liberace lived lavishly and embraced a lifestyle of excess both on and off stage. In summer 1977, handsome young stranger Scott Thorson walked into his dressing room and, despite their age difference and seemingly different worlds, the two embarked on a secretive five-year love affair. BEHIND THE CANDELABRA takes a behind-the-scenes look at their tempestuous relationship – from their first meeting backstage at the Las Vegas Hilton to their bitter and public break-up.

(found here)

Admittedly, it was a lot darker and thought provoking than I initially thought it would be, judging from the trailer and what not, but I did enjoy it a lot! Definitely recommend that you should see it if you're into the fierce gay Queen kinda film genre. It is hard not to be, really.

In other news, I leave for New York in 1 week! So full of excitement and fear simultaneously. KSDHWJKEHGJKHDLGJHSG.

Moving swiftly on, here are some films I am looking forward to seeing when I am in the States:

This is the End

The Bling Ring

Until next time.
