MAJOR UPDATE: Moving Blogs!

Hey y’all,

Okay so I know I said in my last post that I launched a new blog but I would also be continuing to write on this one too. However with much thought, I have decided that it’s best to just stop writing on this blog altogether and pursue writing on my new one for quite a few reasons.

1) It’d be difficult for me to write the best I can regularly on two blogs with the little time that I have

2) I have a few projects in mind that can only be done with Wild Muse in full swing

3) I feel as if this blog doesn’t encapsulate what I want it to. I’ve grown and matured since I first began writing this blog and so I want to take that with me. Call it a fresh start if you like. I quite like my new pseudonym as it pretty much sums me up. Wild Muse. A young, wild and free spirit gaining muse from this world that we live in and the world that’s constantly in my head.

I won’t delete this blog. I want to be able to look back on what I wrote and reminisce. On Wild Muse, it’ll most certainly still have fashion and beauty related posts but will contain more than that. It’ll explore all realms concerning music, art, spiritualism, travelling and important matters that I feel should reach the mind. Check out my new blog at wildmuseofficial.wordpress.com and check out the About page. See if you like it. Give me feedback. All feedback is much appreciated.

I hope you give it a follow if you enjoy my first post on there. Thank you for supporting this blog. I have heard a lot of good feedback whilst writing on here. Much won’t be missed as my new blog is simply a more refined and constructed version of what I’ve written on here.

Thank you for your utmost support.

Love always,

Alexander McQueen Exhibition: Savage Beauty

Hey m’loves!

I know it’s been ages. I had exams and then I decided to relax for a bit by visiting friends, going out, planning all the things I want to do and preparing for the next year ahead so please do bare with me. Anyway, I don’t want to ramble so let me proceed with today’s post. Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty Exhibition held at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Wow. I have no words. Hands down THE best exhibition I have ever set foot in to be perfectly honest with you. If you can get yourself to London, I desperately urge you to head down there and see for yourself how amazing this exhibition is. It really does capture McQueen’s talent and savage authenticity that his work has. Not only that but you can see up front how he used his skills obtained from Savile Row and it is just simply out of this world. The audio played consists of classical music and dark, eerie music with McQueen’s voice echoing in the background. Video footage of his catwalks and fashion shows are continuously played. There even is the notorious Alexander McQueen x Kate Moss ethereal hologram being viewed in a dark room. Do check the video footage I took of this notorious hologram over on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhSvL9mI7WI

As you drop your jaw at the following pictures, notice the creativity of a man who left his name behind in the history of fashion.

Phenomenal right? Please do see it for yourself – it is SO much better in person and yes there is a discount if you are a student! For an exhibition I would have thought to have been worth about £90 I cannot believe I paid only one ninth of the price. You have been warned: if you don’t go, you will simply miss out!

See you in my next post,

Hi guys!

Apologies for the absolute no show the past month. It’s exam season so I’ve barely had time to post or youtube lately. I will be back in June! In the meantime, enjoy some of my latest work that I’ve done to unwind.

Current March Favourites!

Bonjour mes amis!

I thought I would share with y’all what I’ve been loving this month,

DSC_0176

Yankee candles. I decided to see what all this Yankee hype is about and got myself two votive candles. The other one was in “Turquoise Sky” . Out of the two, I most definitely preferred “Midnight Jasmine”. Now I have a thing for scent; you will ALWAYS find me purchasing candles or incense sticks. It’s definitely something I grew up around and used to relax and unwind in the evenings. Also, I have a personal love for jasmine flowers. This is probably due to the fact that growing up as a child, I would linger around the wall of jasmine flowers that I used to have in my garden. Not only do the flowers itself look so fresh and pretty, but the scent is so distinct and pleasant that I always tend to always choose “jasmine” when it comes to anything fragrant. The candle itself did resemble the flowers’ scent, however whilst burning, the smell was not as strong and as pungent as I hoped it would be. In my opinion, Muji’s candles burned more strongly when it came to scent! Nonetheless, I still love burning this little one, and would not hesitate to purchase more.

Yep, and these are the famous Muji candles. I bought them in “Jasmine & Black Olive” and “Elderflower”. Pretty aren’t they? At £3.50 each, I just could not resist. They smell absolutely D I V I N E and once they finish, I am most certainly going to remove the labels and use the tins for something! I’m on Day 2 of burning and it hasn’t even passed a quarter of the way. I will be repurchasing these for sure!

To finish on the candle segment, my last two faves go to this gorgeous Indian traditional and ethnic print candle holder from Cancer Research UK and porcelain candle holder/tray from Tiger. The red candle holder costed me 50p in my local charity shop (bloody bargain or what?!) and has been serving me well when it comes to burning my candles. The candle holder from Tiger has been providing extra protection for when the candle holder gets a tad warm.

And of course I would add my first tea set to the faves list! As I was heading to Bubbleology in Soho which has become a habit every time I am near there, I stumbled across a Chinese Spa/ Meditation Herbal place a few doors to the right of Bubbleology. It caught my eye, so I decided to go in. I saw varieties of herbal teas, but then became excited as I suddenly realised that I was surrounded by tea sets. Not any old tea sets – Chinese oriental tea setsNot many people know this about me, but I love vintage and old-fashioned things as well as anything oriental. That includes tea sets and tea parties and all that good stuff. I’ve been looking for a floral tea set for years but this set really screamed “GET ME” when it was reduced from £60 to £25. The print is so pretty and dainty I just had to do it. The helpful lady in store told me that traditional Chinese people would make their tea in the tea pot, pour some in the little cup, and then pour the rest in this other jar (bottom left) to prevent the tea from going cold. They would sip their tea as they painted which is something I would end up doing as I love to paint using either acrylics or oil paints.

Now this really is a bloody brilliant fave. During London Fashion Week I passed by Topshop on Oxford Street. After trying on a few bits, I came out to see a screen with the Topshop Unique catwalk being played and a vending machine next to it. This vending machine had many packages as seen as above with different coloured circular Topshop labels on them. Turns out if you tweeted and hashtagged Topshop on Twitter, you were entitled to a package from the vending machine. I thought, well why not? So I tweeted and hashtagged Topshop, showed a member of staff next to the vending machine and took my package. In all honesty, I thought it would be sweets inside or something. I walked away but then stopped. I was just so damn curious so I opened it, and best believe my jaw dropped and my eyeballs popped out. Did I just get Topshop makeup? FOR FREE?! I had been eyeing Topshop’s lipstick in Rio Rio for AGES and to find it in the package was unbelievable. Not only that, but I’ve been itching to try a pastel coloured nail colour for spring as I have always stuck to dark colours or nude browns and pinks. Turns out that dream had been achieved considering I got this gorgeous lilac pastel polish in “Forsaken” (Look at my first picture in this post to see what it looks like on).

Overall, this month’s faves are looking awesome so far. I can’t wait to show you what else I’ll be loving in the months to come.

Much love,

Imogen x
