Tips and tricks

Hi guys i have a new post for you today. I'm on a roll.
I have been gathering ideas how to add little and effective ways to improve an outfit and here it is. Enjoyx

-Roll up ends of trousers, shirts and jackets. This tip is good if you want to achieve a cool and casual look.
-Buying a bigger a size is a great tip because it gives a totally different effect than a tighter top would as in i've tried but not too hard. It produces a very relaxed outfit. It fits in well with grunge and boho looks too.

-Some may say that trainers are not fashionable and that the days of wearing trainers are over after the playground days are finished and should are only acceptable at the gym. For me trainers are a must have, a definite staple item, they look stylish, can add a twist to a girly outfit, make an outfit look more urban and casual. If you having a lazy day you can always get away with wearing a comfy and cheeky trainer. I do tend to gravitate to the branded trainer such as nike and converse. These two are defo my favourites.

-Not everyone has the confidence to wear a hat but its a fun way to make a statement and change an outfit up. You'll look instantly trendy.

-Experimenting with the colours and lengths can make an outfit. So go buy some ankle ones with frills for a vintage look, over the knee socks or even knee high socks.

-Layering necklaces always adds a unique twist to an outfit especially if there is some chunky chains mixed in with some dainty necklaces.

-Tucking t-shirts into trousers, shorts or skirts makes an oufit look more put together and more vintage looking.

-A hippy headband is a great way to accesorise an outfit and one of my favourites whether its colourful or simple that always look awesome.

-Lastly, to make a vintage look even more vintage add a brooch to make it look a bit more personal and indeering.

thanks for reading

Lots of love daisyx

tag time-get to know me tag !Part 1

So i thought as i am a new blogger it would be a good idea to do this tag and will let you know more about me. I got the tag off of youtube and here goes!
Vital stats-
Name-Daisy if you hadn't already guessed by the name of my blog
dais (pronounced "days" the spelling of the other one looks a bit weird)
its just a short version of my name. To be honest thats it oh and my parents have weird nicknames for me aswell but i can't remember all of them.
My birthday is the 1/8/1997 making me 15 and one of the youngest people in my year.
Place of birth-i was born in kent ,south east london.
Star sign-
Leo and im really not sure that suits me because leo's are suppossed to be confident and like a leader which i am in no way like at all.
As for my occupation guess you could say im a blogger but primarily im a student at secondary school and next year i'll be going to sixth form or college. For my options i chose art,textiles,french and history.
Appearence-Allthough there are no pictures of me on my blog but im just looking for a decent camera to use. I should have one after christmas.
Hair colour-brown
Hair length-medium length
Eye colour-
blue with a bit of green, i love the colour of my eyes.
Best feature-i don't know really know apart from the colour of my eyes i would say my lips.
yes unfortunatley but i never notice there on unless i smile and catch a glimpse of them and i still wear lipstick with my braces. i have clear bands and my braces should be coming off in about 6 months.
i have no piercings but i do want my ears pierced two on each lobe because i have had an operation so i cant pierce my cartalage but if i wanted to i could pierce my tragus which i also want done. I also want my nose pierced at some pierced. Apart from that nothing else. I'm a bit scared that i'll get left with scars.
I currently have none because i'm only 15 and would never consider getting one underage because of all the different issues but i do plan on getting some.
Righty or lefty-
I'm a righty and i dont understand how people can right with their left hand it seems impossible to me.
Best friend-Louise, i met her at playgroup, i think, but i unfortunatley we didn't stay in contact.
Award-Primary school for something but i don't know what every week in assembly a few people would recieve a certificate i just can't remember mine:(
Ballet i used to do at like 5 and gave it up a few times till i finally gave it up at the end of year 6. I wish i had continued to do it or taken up another dance.
Real holiday-
The first real holiday i can remember is butlins a classic, it was amazing and im currently saying that at 15 years old but it was. I saw the cast of noddy, dressed up in costumes obviously and i wore these shoes called doodles, loved them. I went with my mum,dad and sister.
Unfortunatley my first concert was rihanna and it was awful i couldnt hear her singing because she couldn't sing and the music was too loud. Since then i've been to see the wanted and coldplay and for me the wanted were best but i do love coldplay its just their concert had an open roof which was just so weird and it was in a stadium and i'd never been to see someone at a stadium before.
Make sure you look out for my next edition of the get to know me tag because i think its a bit too long. Hope you enjoyed and are having a great day.xdaisyx

Feeling glum?

hi guys.
Ever thought winter was a bit boring and miserable why not inject a bit of happiness with some bright colours. not only will it cheer you up in the cold winter months you will appear like a daring, confident fashionista looking reminiscent of the awesome 80's. You could add a bright colour to the lips like a bright pink -i have one from topshop which is still available, in brighton rock-.
Painting the nails is a also a good choice why not try a vibrant yellow because a girls always got to have her nails done and this way its more subtle and gives an interesting twist to a look, focusing the eye somewhere different.
But if you want to go the whole way why not buy a bright jumper stylish and weather friendly.Its always nice to have a bright block colour in an outfit. Why not try something new and be daring. i hope i have given some style inspo and don't let the winter get you down and make you stop wearing bright colours.

Style icon-Claudia winkleman

Todays post is about the lovely claudia winkleman.She is a tv and radio personality whos had a very successful career starting back in the 90's. I have always admired her for her distinct fashion and personal appearence. I love the way her make-up is always matt and her eyes always have black eyeliner around them. Her hair is also very distinct it is always short with a fringe and very choppy, sharp and blunt. She hasn't changed the colour. For me she has totally made a statment that seperates her from anyone else but it is very laid back and simple.i look to her for inspiration whether that be her make-up or fashion. Her fashion always tends to be quite tailored or floaty and glamorous. Block colours are another thing she is seen in. If she is not in a bright block colour most of the colours she wears will be quite neautral. i would normally associate her with black clothing. She is definitley one of my icons.
Hope you enjoyed this post and that you too can take some inspiration from it x

descisions, descisions, descisions


Now everyone comes to a point in their lives when they will try and decide what career that want to do and i have come to that point just about now. I just don't what to be one of those people who wallows in regret because they didnt try out things or do what they wanted to do. i cant decide what i want to do i have never had an exact route of where i want my life to take me.

I am currently deciding whether to go to a college or a college that specialises in beauty where i could study theatrical make up not sixth form it just seems boring to me. although theatrical makeup sounds oh so interesting i dont know how i would actually find it or whether i would want to persue it as an actual job. If i were to do theatrical make up i would be going to college 2 days a week and i then get a job for money and experience. But if it was not to work out i would have to go to another college and do my a-levels which is a bit of a hassle and i would then go to college being a year older than everyone because the theatrical makeup course only goes on for so long.
i could always do theatrical make up in a gap year though. I do want to travel so it would be a 2 year gap year. There are companies that do volunteering and you get to travel all over the world. That would be an experience!
 I suppose it makes more sense to have a gap year after college than before.

As for uni i want to study law and journalism but i dont want to be a gossipy bullshity journalist i dont understand how that counts as interesting or a job. Law would be really difficult and you have to do even more studying after uni and i dont know what job i would actually do with that degree. These are the only kind of ideas i have for a career.
Aside from all that i would like to continue my blog regardless of what career path i take. Other less planned or practical ideas include opening my own shop, being an intern at company and working in the music business.
Hope you found this post interesting and will let you know what i decide. lots of love daisy xx

Style inspiration

I wouldn't say i have a specific style inspiration and if i were to list them all it would be a pretty long list. But there is always one place i can look to get some inspiration that isn't neccesarily on trend because I always like to try different looks. Skins is the best place ever to look at for inspo as there are many people with different looks. Effy had the whole grunge thing going on, liv was very vintage with a nod to the 90's and mini was also vintage with a more 80's direction. I also think frankie's fashion got really good during the middle to end of skins series 6. Of course there were other females in skins but these 4 are by far the best in my eyes.There all so different but i love them all the same.Skins is always a programme that hasn't been afraid to be different and this is definitley reflected in the fashion. All of the characters clothes seem to suit them really well because they reflect each characters personality. Hopefully this can help some of you out too, who also like trying new things or are looking for a new fashion direction. As for my style i would describe it as playful and girly, i also like to mix and match things. xx
Here are some pics of my favourite outfits.

Usually people are wanting to tame there brows but thick are becoming a trend. For me i love thick eyebrows they look so nice. i also like a pinup eyebrow but never a thin one. I would love to have eyebrows like effy from skins, they suit her so well and make her look all the more prettier. So to grow out my brows i have discovered a new trick which is to apply olive oil to your brows at night before you go to bed and remove in the morning. This trick saves money and is a good way to get those brows growing. It works by giving the brows moisture allowing them to grow.
Hope this helps xx

Debenhams hmmmnn.

Hi i know this is my second post in a day but the ideas just keep flowing and i just love blogging. Now debenhams isn't exactly the most trendiest of shops but i for one totally give it the thumbs up and recommend it. It has h! by henry holland first of all who is a totally gorgeous very flattering clothing and a unique designer in a world of his own. The quality of bags are great too; the sale with up to 70% off has just come up and i am dieing to get some, yes some. There are just sooo amazing. To be honest i don't really look at all of the clothes apart from henry holland and red herring but if something cathches my eye then of course ill go look. I recently spotted some wedged creepers (which i prefer to the normal ones)on their which seems unlikley of them but hey and i have never really looked at the shoes before. Debenhams is also good for a quick sniff of perfume.
Hope this helps xx
Also i am trying to do some photography for outfit of the days and hauls which i need to photograph i just need a camera with a charger errrrr.xx

theatre times

I have always loved going to the theatre whether that be a panto or  show. Going to a panto has become a tradition in our family. I have only ever been to a proper theatre once in london to see Billy Elliot but was blown away and thought the level of talent from such young actors and actresses was amazing. I loved the atmosphere, it was amazing the lights, acting, singing and dancing. Now i want to feast my eyes on a play by Willy Russell called Educating Rita. I have studied the play at school and it engaged me like no other book or play i have studied. It is neither a horror nor a romance and at first glance it may seem like a romance but it isn't. Its a journey between two people of opposite backgrounds of self discovery.It's different. I admit the film and book of the play wasn't full of constant thrills but the story is beautiful it takes you on journey with these characters. I am so intreged to see what the play will be like whether it will convey the same feelings and emotions. Its a play so it won't be full of song and dance which i love also. I don't understand those who think plays are just for those who are posh although it does sound very intelligent if your talking about plays which i do not claim to be; its just like a hobby and i admire writers who can write so well. The play only consists of one room and two people althought the film varies the settings. I just love that the passion and acting must be so good for this too actually work thats why i love it, it seems so interesting. The film has Michael Cane(A christmas Carol) and Julie Walters(Harry Potter)and the play is very true to its time. Let's hope i can bag a seat. Hope you liked the post. xx

whats that i hear ?

Hi everyone todays post is about new artists and songs i have discovered and are loving or rediscovering them. I love music and everyone does whether their taste is different or not. I absoluley love Jessie ware, a quirky singer with fresh music she sounds amazing. I especially love wildest moments which is my fave. Not only is her music unique her voice is greatly uunique too.

My other artist is Gabrielle aplin her voice is literally perfect and also brings something new to music. She has a kind of indie/folk elements to her music. My fave song of hers is Please don't say you love me it reverses the role of what some may say is an typical opinion of a wild boyfriend, this song is very special.

Another artist is Lianne la havas who i have seen on music programmes such as freshly squeezed and i adore her single is your love big enough, i think she is a great songwriter with great ideas with a voice that oozes soul and strength. I also love one of her songs called lost and found which is very heartfelt definitley a ballad.

As for rediscovering artists i have been listening to charlie simpson. I bought his album ages ago and have just recently been listening to him on youtube. He writes his own songs and plays guitar his song titles seem so interesting. I totally love him and respect him for his musical achievements and verstility. As i mentioned i love the guitar elements of his music he is very folk. Plus i love paloma faith aswell.

The singles i have been loving have come from skins, Series 5 and 6... I think. I love the music they use with the acting the two blend so well and most are undiscovered aswell which i love they have managed to discover great music.

The first single is called they just don't give a fuck by phoenixunique ft elida benjamin. This track is definitley a hip hop one full of raping with a great chorus. i love the element a female voice gives it.

The next one is desire by anna calvi purely beautiful, i love it definitley creates a picture in your mind. She plays guitar and is a folks singer.

Candy by robbie williams is awesome like nothing i have ever heard especially from him, he is definitley getting better and it has kaya in from skins, i love her. The songs just sounds amazing and suits his voice really well. It definitley makes you wanna get up a dance.

Hope you enjoyed, i love music and thought id share my recent loves with you and as yo can see i have lots of different people i love and i love undiscovered and unique people.

We are a mess, we are failures and we love it- skins series 5
bye xx

colourful thoughts

Hi everyone just a post on my recent thoughts about the famous docs. Black, cherry and white all seem to be the norm but i have been thinking about getting a cheeky purple or electric blue although i'm not 100% sure where i could get the electric blue docs i have seen them in pictures but haven't seen them on the website. I think the 2 pairs would look stunning and could be very versatile. I think they would look great with skinny jeans, skirts-maxi, mini or even midi and dresses look amazing with docs because it adds some quirkiness and a rough edge to the look though at the same time they can look feminime tooand i love mixing and matching stuff. Heres a few pics. xx

Introducing DELILAH

Hi there again,
now i love music and nowadys there are so many artists to chose from but i have a discovered a truly unique songstress who goes by the name delilah but her real name is paloma. She first came to my attention with her collaboration with chase and status but i wasn't a huge fan of that but now i have rediscovered her wonderful voice and her music as i have recently been listening to her music and i absoluley love her new and upcoming single shades of grey and that has made me want to listen to her voice all day long. I would say there is no one else like and her songs have great meaning each song sounds different and the lyrics are beautiful and not typical like pop is. Her style is gorgeous too and she so pretty. I would desribe her voice as touching soulfull and stunning. The music is a mix of that amazingly soulful voice and a bit of dubstep,rock and randb but not all of her tracks are like that some of that are more guitar based but ones that you could still dance, like nothing ive heard before. I feel like all her songs are very personal like your reading her diary. I totally look up to her and respect her for what she has acomplished she deserves to be noticed and im so glad i have found her music.

At the movies

Recently i have been obsessing over chick flicks and romcoms and i have discovered some that i would love to watch or even better get on dvd. However all of these movie's will be available to see on the big screen soon.
The first film i have fallen head over heels with is 'Now is Good'. This film caught my eye when on youtube and it came up in the adverts(just before the video) however this turned to be a good thing as i saw Kaya Scodelario a.k.a the wonderful effy from skins(that series was truly amazing). I then looked at the trailer and omg i couldn't love it any more than i allready do. When Tessa recieves some bad news she does her best to take life by both hands and live like she never has before which includes a lot of recklessness very fast which makes the movie so fun. I love the contrast. It also involves a love story and is a very relatable film for teenagers or just an inspiring and indeering film for anyone. I just love the story line its not like anything ive heard before. It stars Dakota fanning who looks absoluley amazing despite me never watching any of her previous films and i'm sure kaya will be amazing too. Plus the love interest is a hottie too even more amazing. Originally a book it is now a film and i'm sure its a fantastic book considering what it looks like on screen, i really admire the author for creating such a different, wild and adorable book. I can definatley see why it was turned into a film. The characters look so relatable aswell. It's a definate all rounder of a film.It comes out later this month... i think look out for it xx more films coming soonxx
