Ella Eyre1

I understand there is something on the twitternet called Woman Crush Wednesday, where one discusses a woman that one admires? (I should really join Twitter and/or Instagram, I am too young to be this curmudgeonly about technology.) Anyway, as it is Wednesday, I thought I should share what I was doing last Wednesday, which was being very pleasantly surprised watching Ella Eyre perform at The Roundhouse in Camden.

I was not an especially massive fan (I only knew her from her guest vocals on Rudimental’s “Waiting All Night”), but my friend invited me, I love gigs, and the Roundhouse is a cool venue. So, after bracing ourselves for the inevitable hair envy, off we went.

And were completely blown away! She was brilliant- great voice, I loved the songs, I was obsessed with her outfit and she seemed to be genuinely enjoying herself. I couldn’t get any decent pictures of her outfit so had to steal some off t’internet – I am never going anywhere without a black PVC capelet with gold tassels again! I also loved that she wore funky trainers instead of stilettos so that she could bounce around comfortably.

I’m also mega-crushing on her look in the video for “Gravity”, with DJ Fresh. I love turquoise and silver for summer!:

Her support acts were really good too – Jake Isaac, who had a lovely voice, followed by Shift K3y, whose songs all sounded like covers of 90s songs that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I don’t mean that as a criticism, as a 90s lover, I really enjoyed them! (I will however criticise his incredibly daft name!)

– My “Will Work For Candy” t-shirt, that I bought in the Sugar Factory in Vegas (it’s open all night, so cool! And also dangerous….)

– My trusty M&S treggings (one day I will do an OOTD not wearing them, honest!)

– Old choker necklace from the actual 90s (or possibly very early noughties)

– Chilli pepper necklace that was a freebie from a shop in Siena

– Random old black chain I had at home

– My new Marc by Marc Jacobs zip earrings, that were a Christmas present

– Old blue and gold bangles, from Accessorize

I also painted my nails pink with a layer of Barry M Croc Effect nail varnish (reviewed here):

But my absolute favourite thing about the gig? Gig earrings! I always try and buy some sort of merchandise at gigs as a souvenir, but usually you’re limited to ill-fitting men’s t-shirts, hugely tight women’s t-shirts, or plastic wristbands. There were actually loads of cool things on offer. Her trademark symbol is a crown-wearing lion, and they had canvas bags, onesies, phone cases, hoodies etc. with it on. But when I saw that they had earrings, I was sold!

Ella Eyre- I salute your talent, I lust after your epic hair, and I will be buying your album 🙂

Happy Hump Day everyone!

ImageI stole the mani idea from …love Maegan. I did it last year in pinks like she did but this year I thought I’d try it with slightly more grown-up colours to avoid feeling like a 12 year old. Then I saw the hearty nail varnish in Camden and somewhat ruined my newfound manicure maturity!

ImageI used:

O.P.I. “Tickle my France-y” for the base colour

Nails Inc. “Shoreditch” for the hearts

The hearty nail varnish is Gabrini, and I bought it at a stall in Camden Market while the seller tried to chat me up…before moving on to my shopping companion, who also happened to be my boyfriend’s little sister! The varnish was quite hard to use, I basically had to scrape the hearts out and plop them on my nail individually. Consequently it’s a bit clumpy, but busy enough that is doesn’t show too much. My sister put one or two hearts just on each thumb and that looks really cute too.

The love bracelet was from M&S a while back, and the heart necklace is stolen from my sister!

Love,
