Alaïa, Louboutin, Rossi.

I don’t know about you, but these last eight days have been insanely tiring, and I think I’m only just beginning to feel the comedown of it all. what with graduating (I’ll share some pictures with you soon), reading for classes, driving, graduation parties, more reading, thinking about future careers, thinking in general; I think I can be forgiven for just wanting to curl up in bed and sleep for the next month. Sadly that’s not exactly an even remotely viable option so instead I’ll just kick back and relax with the help of net-a-porter’s ‘What’s New’ section. This week I’ve become completely enamoured with heels (which in part could be because I basically spent the majority of last week in them), so I was happy to see four pairs that I wouldn’t mind receiving in the post *hint hint*.

Even though has been crazy hectic recently, I really don’t see it slowing down, but wouldn’t have it any other way! Check out what else is new here.

Good Good.

My favourite country duo, Florida Georgia Line, is back with a second album that dropped five days ago. I’m not quite sure how long I’ve waited for this, but I know that it’s been a ridiculously long time. So long in fact that I haven’t stopped listening to this new album since I first downloaded it. Anyway, I was originally going to choose another song for today’s Sunday Soundtrack, but obviously I had to change that and share one of the new songs from their new album, Anything Goes. I won’t go into too much detail about this latest record BUT what I will say is that these boys have kept their cheeky country charm.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think. Happy Sunday.

ps. Stay tuned for an album review at some point.

2Jours & Follies Cabo.

Fendi and Louboutin were by far THE stand-out pieces from the latest products to be added to net-a-porter this week. The mini shopper evokes all kinds of lady-like glamour that can just as easily be dressed down as it can be dressed up, depending on where you feel more like showing off. And the black embellished pumps with their contrast gold heel made me want to reach through my screen and grab them for myself.

UKHairWeaves Clip-In Extensions.

I’ve always wondered what I would look like with long flowing locks. I always had a vague idea of what I might look like seeing as I’d worn my hair in braids, but it wasn’t quite the same. Then, three years ago, I packed my things and bounded off to the mystical world of University Land where I was exposed to far more than books and two hour seminars. I watched as before every night out Beth and Lauran would spend time putting in their extensions and listened totally fascinated and bemused to their conversations about extensions.

The 16″ extensions

On more than one occasion they suggested I try extensions, but I was a little apprehensive about the whole thing because I doubted being able to find extensions that would match my hair. That was until the summer when I took out my braids and decided to go natural for a while (I say natural even though I relax my hair) and started researching different ways of wearing my hair. Now, my hair comes to about the bottom of my neck, and while it looks great in a slicked back bun, sometimes I want to have long hair without having to sit for hours having it braided.

So anyway, loooong story short, this one Saturday I googled extensions for relaxed hair and stumbled across UKHairWeaves. Being my Scorpio and inquisitive self, I read reviews, did more research before finally deciding to take the plunge (priced from £105 and upwards you can see why I got a little obsessive – I had to make sure I was going to be getting my money’s worth) and ordered their extensions for relaxed hair, called Regal Relaxed. I ordered their 16” extensions, and while they were absolutely fabulous they were just a tad short, so after talking to Beth, and deliberating, I ordered their 20” which were BY FAR even more fabulous.

These extensions match my hair PERFECTLY and would definitely recommend them if you have relaxed hair or straighten your hair. They also have extensions for other hair types, so they’re definitely worth checking out.

70’s Goth.

When it comes to cool, I’m pretty sure you’d all agree that Joan ticks every box. I’m yet to meet an individual who can rock (or who owns as many as she does) a crop top the way she does. She’s like that cool kid at school you wish you could be friends with, but then skulk away because you’re simply not as cool as she is.

I also love how she can make anything so goth-chic ;).

Little Monster.

As I could happily listen to this song on repeat for hours, why not share it on here? I think it’s fair to say that Royal Blood is my new favourite rock band (even though this is the only song of theirs that I’ve heard – I should probably give some of their other stuff a listen, huh?), what with their lead singer resembling Shawn Hatosy from his Southland days (so cute and hot, which I might add is a hard combination to strike, so double points to him), and this song making me want to get up and mosh like there’s no tomorrow. Ah, there’s really nothing like finding a new band to love.

Give them a listen and let me know what you think. Happy Sunday.

Scream (Funk My Life Up).

Here’s some Paolo Nutini singing live and doing his thing, for you. To really make the most of the experience, light a couple sticks of incense (vanilla and white linen are perfect for this) and just allow Paolo’s voice to float with your thoughts through the universe. Not a bad way to spend a Friday night.

Happy Friday night.
