Life Update | Instagram

Hello everyone,

Well it's fair to say I've been completely rubbish in keeping up with this. The summer has been an incredibly busy time for me and I finally have some space to revive my blog. I think the best way to play catch-up is a load of lovely instagrams!

So, in short, over the summer I have been on holiday to Corfu and bought weird and wonderful souvenirs (i.e my Gandalf incense stick burner), seeing my amazing friends, losing my BBC Proms virginity, promoting and performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, FINALLY buying my new Apple Macbook Pro, shooing chickens out of the house, and buying a Lucious Malfoy cane with Phoebe playing Dobby! A very condensed account of my summer and I do intent to explain more in time! And it's only fitting that since I'll be going to university in a few weeks that I review my gap year.

But for now, good night, and speak soon!

Virtual Choir 4 - It's here!

Hello everyone!

So remember I posted about my experience of doing Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir, well the finished product is here! It is a sensational piece of music and Eric Whitacre is an absolute genius incorporating choral singing with EDM. I'm so excited about this piece of music, I only got the email of its release about 15 minutes ago! Every listen to this piece of incredible innovation and artistry and for goodness sake ... TURN THE VOLUME UP!!!

Look! There's my name in the credits! Oh my, I'm so proud to have been part of this project. This really is breathtaking. Please everyone, take 5 minutes of your time to listen to this!

Lots of love! Alice xxx

The Cripple of Inishmaan

Hello Everyone!

I wrote a post a while ago about the amazing pieces in Zara and a particular fashion pursuit: the Rustic Combination Linen Coat. I said I couldn't find it anywhere, it was sold out on the website, it was nowhere to be seen in the shops, but knowing it was a fairly recent item I knew it was somewhere. Against the odds, I FOUND IT! I found my lovely coat. It took a delivery from Barcelona, but I found it and I am beyond ecstatic with it. It is just beautiful! I wore on a recent trip to London - I'm very unphotogenic, so be kind with these photos!

Coat - Zara | Top & Jeans - Topshop | Shoes - Office | Lipstick - MAC 'Morange'
It's the perfect summer coat. Fellow Englanders will know that our lovely country has a tendency to be boiling hot and sunny for about week and that's it and having a coat that is light, beautifully patterned and colourful is a great way of feeling summery even if the weather isn't up to it! I wore the coat with my lovely dark grey Super Soft Leigh jeans from Topshop which I got in the sale and were a bargain at £25 from £40 and my Blur T-shirt of their album cover 'Parklife' which I also got in the sale from Topshop for £10! Amazing, I absolutely love it!
I have also become OBSESSED with orange lately so when I saw these lovely shoes from Office on sale for £25 they were mine. And I finally got the chance to wear my orange MAC lipstick 'Morange' which is gorgeous! It's so summery and I love the fact it's got red running through to make it a dark orange it as opposed to having a light orange; I don't suit light shades very well. The coat though - isn't it incredible! And if the coat itself isn't good enough, look at the lining!! It's a work of art. This item is a little beauty - well done Zara!
I wore the coat to see 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' at the Noel Coward Theatre in London, starring Daniel Radcliffe. The show was amazing - it was really comedic, completely un-PC, moving, heartbreaking and tear-jerking. Daniel Radcliffe was brilliant, I have so much respect for him as an actor now; he was really convincing as an Irish lad and in his movements as the cripple (in this case, a sufferer of cerebal palsy) - I was completely starstruck! I am definately going to see it again and if anyone else around London is interested, the show is running until 31st August. There may be a few tickets left but it has been incredibly popular so nab the chance while you can!
What do you think of my coat and have any of you seen The Cripple of Inishmaan?
Bye bye petals, Love Alice xxx
