It’s Friday friends, Friday, my favourite of all the days. You’ve almost made it through another week of work, study or (God help you) half term and I’m here to tell you, Good Job, take a well deserved break and let me distract you with some potentially incoherent musings I’ve collected along the way.
Put a bonnet on it
In the words of young philosopher Rebecca Black, “gotta get down on Friday”, and also it’s Hallow’s Eve which means even more of a reason to let your locks down. For some of us, such freedom is harder than others, the struggle of curly locks can be a burden with it’s tendency to look as if you’ve been rescued from some kind of undergrowth. Fortunately our latest girl crush and face of our freshly released Kim Dress has come to our rescue and I’ve fallen completely in love with her incredible curl cream from her company SKIMDO that not only makes you a frizz free zone for up to a week - perfect for my soap dodger antics - but she even shows you how to get the perfect corkscrews...
"This is my costume. I'm a homicidal maniac- they look just like everyone else"
As a result of me being fundamentally lazy (outside of work, of course) I’m not the biggest fan of going out of my way to dress up for any kind of event, even Halloween. I think I’ve come up with the answer: Wednesday Addams - not only my dream offspring, but my dream solution. With a wardrobe riddled with black smock dresses and clumpy shoes, a face full of black eyeshadow and a pre 10am attitude problem, all I need to add is knee high socks, a white shirt and a corpse-like complexion to convince people I’ve really given it a go.
And if that fails I can always go as this…
Yes, that’s my actual face.
I’ve been lucky enough to attend some excellent gigs in the last couple of weeks so if you’re going to be shaking your moneymaker like no ones business this weekend, I recommend British born, Ghanaian raised Fuse ODG for some high-octane carnival vibes to get you in the mood….
If afrobeats isn’t really what you’re channeling this weekend though, how about checking out the stunning vocals of Swedish songstress Seinabo Sey and if you don’t agree that effortless voice doesn’t ooze sexy Bond theme tune, you’re wrong.
With Halloween on our doorsteps things are about to get creepy, so if you want to mildly prepare yourself for tonights hair-raising happenings why not read the story of June & Jennifer Gibbons “The Silent Twins”. After growing up speaking only to each other in a made up language, a succession of crime sprees resulting in them being committed and ultimately agreeing one of them needed to be sacrificed. Spooky huh? I’m actually afraid of the dark (among other totally normal and definitely not strange things) so I admittedly didn’t get too far...
With a penchant for dressing like a cross between a Mafia wife and Edward Scissorhands, this week I’ve been perving over this saucy little number from the gorgeous Sallie Oh and her “verging on indecent” Burda 10/2010 #122 shirt dress. My sewing game has been a bit slow lately but this could be the pattern to save me from my rut, replicated in a sheer black, of course...
For those of you who don’t know, I spend an inordinate amount of time scouring the internet for funny stuff, you know, just incase. Weird right? I do have a job I swear...
Anyway, here’s a picture of a dog in tights:
Totally worth it.
