Do I wanna know?

Its took me ages to do this post! I came back from my driving lesson at 11 this morning agh! (I did stop to do a bit of dancing though)
Anywayyy I've been excited about this post for a while and I figured it was good timing as tonight its the last ever episode of skins which is so sad! I think its going to go out with a bang, I hope!
I've loved skins since day one, so you can imagine my excitement when my local boutique GladRags
 started selling skins t shirts I have to admit I faced a dilemma though as they sell one with Cook on, on his own and others with Pandora and Effy on. 
I did say 'I WANT them all' but decided to be good and buy the one with Effy on.
 Effy's probably one of my favourite characters; so ballsy yet beautiful and mysterious.
And above all nobody breaks her heart.

By the way sorry for being so photo heavy in advance there's a DIY ahead!








I paired this top with a pair of jeans I DIYed. I am in love with fringing this season as I mentioned in one of my recent posts and I've had a pair of black jeans sitting around for a while not being worn and as the weather was (at the time of making these) still warm weather i needed a new addiction to my wardrobe. Its pretty straight forward. First I cut a pair of jeans, using another pair of shorts is a good idea as long as you line them up and don't cut the other pair shorter!



Then with the left over fabric start cutting the fabric into strips but leave about a 1-2cm gap along the top.

 

Then pin the fringing onto the side of the shorts and sow it in place.




And that's it done! I love them because they're quite bad-girlish which is mostly the opposite of me haha!
P.s i have a new page for DIY's so if you fancy doing this at a later date I've made it easier to find just take a look at the tabs at the top!






Anway that's all from me lovelies! I am so pleased you all enjoyed my vlog I put so much hard work into it so it defiantly paid off! As I said I'm hoping to do more so whatever you want to see let me know and I'll do it! If you still haven't seen it make sure you check my last post! 
And one final thing when taking these photos I loved the moody-ness of them and how its quite grungy and I wanted to start including more of my favourite bands on my blog so I'll leave you with this song by Arctic Monkeys which I love and goes quite fittingly!



Until next time take care!

  17. I really need to watch this season of skins! My housemate has been obsessed with it. I didn't watch the last two seasons with Frankie etc.. well I watched a couple but then got bored.

    I really do love Effy though, she is stunning, and Cassy (although not so much in season 2!)
