Helloo everyone !
I apologise this is a day late but my internet has been playing up which is probably a blogger’s worst nightmare ! Hopefully we can now co-operate together in harmony and surf the interwebs quickly and efficiently (please ?)
When I was blonde with roots, I was sometimes compared to one of my favourites singers and ladies out there Marina Diamandis of Marina and the Diamonds fame. Her albums are fantastic in my opinion, humorous and full of honest truth that all teenage girls can relate to.
Her fabulous curvy figure, vintage style with a bit of character play makes her a photographers dream – well for me, and her make-up is one I always turn to when wanting to feel glam and fab.
She is just so god-damn cool, I love how fun and relatable she is. Her rants on twitter about real issues and mainstream music/thoughts are also so true, I would love be as unafraid as her.
Electra Heart is a favourite of mine because Marina gets to emulate a feature, fear or desire she hides in each character or song she sings, and this is something I do with my photography work and with fashion. it really influenced a lot of my work in the past two years and has been a solid album I’ve returned to constantly.
Here’s a picture of me trying to be Marina, which was so fun and I really should do it more often.
I really recommend ‘Electra Heart’ and her acoustic sets which are on her YouTube page, so beautiful as are all the videos for each album part.
I’m also thinking of blogging daily – ooh err – to keep all the creativity flowing and think of new ideas, one of which I’m calling ‘How/What/Why’ which will feature many topics such as photography, food and fun parts of life, so let me know if there’s any topics or questions answered I’d love to know 🙂
Lots of Love,
