Review | My Little Box August 2017

For August, My Little Box have taken inspiration from Western Africa's bold and irreverent wax prints, to create their Wild Summer box.
The patterns are beautiful, loud, powerful and elegant; perfect for summer and the upcoming festivals. Although, I do feel MLB spent a lot of time working on those and not so much what went inside the box. This isn't the worst box I've received, don't get me wrong, but I do feel there is something missing, that it could of been so much more.
I'll let you decide...

Boardmasters 2017 | My Recommendations.

Set in the beautiful surroundings of Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay, Boardmasters is the one of the few festivals that combines live music with surfing, skateboarding, BMX, and some of the best after parties. There's a surf village (basically a little shopping area where you can get great deals on vans as well as other fun stuff) and signings from pro surfers and skateboarders.
This year the #RoxyFitness movement is coming to Watergate Bay for morning yoga sessions, (more info here) and the World Surf League returns for short and longboarders froth on Fistral Beach.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be there. So I'll be spending the week living vicariously through my brother whilst he works and has the best time there.

With over 40,000 people heading to Cornwall for the festival this week, 2017 is set to be Boardmasters biggest year yet.

I've posted my music recommendations below!

We Need to Talk About... Madelaine Petsch.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last couple of months, you'll know what Riverdale is.
Netflix's take on the Archie comics, is dark, twisted and alluring. Imagine if Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars had some crazy, badass lovechild. Yeah, you've basically got Riverdale.

I know, I know. I'm a little late to the party. But I binge-watched the entire first season in under 48 hours. If that doesn't tell you how good this show is, then I don't know what does.

Upfront and centre, is the insanely gorgeous Madelaine Petsch. She plays Riverdale's resident scheming bitch, Cheryl Blossom, who could easily be played off as your stereo-typical, high school mean girl, but Petsch brings complexity and spice to the Queen B. Think Blair Waldorf and you're right area.

South African born Petsch, is uber-stylish. Whilst Cheryl is more made up and glam, Madelaine is more into comfy and casual clothes when off set. And when she does dress up, it's a little more contemporary than her character's. She's not afraid of wearing reds and oranges -something redheads tend to steer clear of. Madelaine's trademark red hair, porcelain skin and big lips makes her look like a real life Jessica Rabbit or Poison Ivy.

 Also, we need to talk about her incredibly, luscious, long locks of red hair. I have the exact same colour hair and my ultimate goal is to have it look like hers.

Can you tell I have the biggest girl crush on her?!

#ThrowbackThursday | Michelle Tanner

Credit | Credit

A couple of weeks ago I made a We Need To Talk About... for the Olsen twins. But since I'm currently binge watching Full House on Netflix, it seemed appropriate to make this post. 

Michelle Tanner was the twins first and, arguably, best role, that they shared from 1987-1995. 
Despite only being 8 when the sitcom ended, the twins were household names and already two of Hollywood's hottest property. Now, they're busy running their fashion empire in New York and have quit acting. 
Unless I didn't make it clear in their WNTTA blog post, these two are major fashion inspo for me. But whilst binge watching Full House, I noticed their fashion choices have always been completely on point. Say hello to scrunchies and overalls galore! 

It's weird to think of  a 5 year old as a fashionista, but Michelle was full of badass attitude and had a spunk to match. She was sassy and just crazy cool. 
Her outfits were quirky and cute, but remember that Uncle Jesse was her bestie, so of course she threw in a little rocker edge sometimes. (actually maybe I'll do a #TBT for Jesse -his outfits were amazing!)

P.S. I've decided to start another series, #ThrowbackThursday, where I talk about fashion and styles I love from previous decades. let me know what you think!

Warped Tour 2017 | My Recommendations.

The ultimate punk rock summer camp is back!
Warped Tour is just about to start it's 22nd year of tornado-ing around North America and with it comes lots of incredible bands and musicians.
This year features "harder" bands than the typical pop punk ones that have dominated the last couple of years. Don't worry though, there's still your fair share of pop punk to listen to!

So if you're going to the tour, here's some recommendations from me to you. Enjoy yourself and think of me good ol' Blightly!
