Christmas Stocking...

I really tried, honest I did. But whilst out getting christmas presents yesterday I stumbled across a pair of the Henry Holland for Pretty Polly tights hidden away in a store. Honestly hidden, in a tiny corner but I found em! I have been wanting these, any of them, since I first spied them on the net and I am ecstatic now I finally own a pair. I also love the fact that I keep seeing people giving me a "OMG shes cmoe out with her suspenders showing" look. Haha in your face boring, conventional tight wearing commuters of Leeds.

P.S. this is not me. My bum is much bigger. ;-)

Woah how mental would it be if you were walking about and this happened?

Rage against Simon Cowell!

Fed up of mindless drivel reaching no.1 year after year? Don't want to hear Leona/Alexandra/SuBo constantly playing over the festive period? Well on the 13th December make sure you go download (and I mean the paying kind!) Rage Against The Machine - Killing in the name. But not until the 13th. Even if you have it, do it. Come on lets do it! It even got a play on Radio 1 today! If facebook managed to bring nasty Wispas back, it can definatly do this.

God Bless America...

...or Target at least. Seriously the amount of designer collabarations they do makes me sick. After Anna Sui, Alexander McQueen and Erin Fetherstone to name a few, comes along a special festive collection from those Mulleavy sisters at Rodarte which will range from $9.99 to $79.99. $79.99 for frickin Rodarte!!! Heres some of my favourites....

Any americans fancy treating me to the ribcage dress? Or the yellow cardigan? It would really help in my mission to bring colour into my wardrobe. x

Skulls, gorillas and a bit for charity....

Phew, after a day at clothes show I think my purse has gone off for a well deserved rest. But seeing as the old camera didn't get up to much I thought it better earn its keep and I'll show off my lovely treasures!!!

Super awesome stripes and skulls playsuit - Lily Kitten
Super super magazines
Ladybird skirt - Lulu & Red


Mmmmm satisfying the magpie in me...
Huuuuge shoe necklace - Red Mutha
Big Unicorn necklace - Hannah Makes Things
The worlds sparkliest skull ring - can't remember
All in all a decent days haul no? Although if I'd have had more time/money I would have been all over Munchy Seeds vanilla pumpkin seeds. Bloody brilliant they were if anyone wants to stock my cupboards this christmas.

Chain gang...

I've wanted me a bit of chainmail since I saw a girl in a chain mail crop top at Cocoon in the park last summer. But I don't think I would be able to rock that look, anyway today I think I found my answer... Chainmail gloves from Fannie Schiavoni! Rock on.

Note to self: Buy more eyeliner

We only have ourselves to blame....

How could you not love that?
Well you may be shocked to realise, as I was, that by doing simple everyday activites such as washing with soap or eating a chocolate bar you are aiding the destruction of the home of the orangutan. And you may be even more shocked to discover its all perfectly avoidable.....

Palm oil is a product of the oil palm tree, a tree grown in South America, Africa and South East Asia. It can be found in many items including foods and soaps. To get this oil though, means deforestation and destruction of the local wildlife in order to create a plantation.

In addition to the destruction of the habitat palm oil workers have also been known to attack orangutans to stop them eating the palm seedlings.
So yeah. Its in loads of stuff but like  I say it can be avoided. Posh chocolates don't contain it at all so put down the Galaxy and pick up some Green and Blacks (prefer it anyway) and Lush have already created a palm oil free soap base so you can keep a clean body and conscience (ho ho), besides which they smell blooming amazing. Sustainable palm oil is available but seeing as it would cost you a whole half pence more per bar its soooo much easier to just destroy the planet, no?
