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!

We Need to Talk About... Mary Kate & Ashley.

Everyone knows the Olsen twins. And if you don't what exactly were you doing in the 90s/00's???
Along with Vanessa Hudgens, Mary Kate and Ashley have been my ultimate girl crushes since, well, for as long as I can remember.
Starting off as child actors on Full House, they transitioned into bonafide Hollywood actresses, before becoming two of fashion's most trusted designers, with their brands The Row, Elizabeth & James, Olsenboye and Style Mint.

I grew up watching their show So Little Time, and movies like New York Minute and Our Lips Are Sealed are still some of my favourites to this day. 
Growing up I was in love with them. They're real, genuine and down to earth. But also, their fashion choices have had a big impact me. (Honestly, it was so hard to narrow their outfits down for this blogpost.)  Whilst some people dismiss their style as "weird", for me it's bohemian chic at its finest.

They both love layers, and investing in pieces that can be used for all occasions. Many say their style is scruffy, but I love their low-key aesthetic.
Ashley's style is more glam, girly and put together. While MK is all about accessorising and a little rock 'n' roll thrown in. Although, both are memorable, influential and timeless.

Whenever the pair step out, I'm always taking note of the way they style pieces.

These two offer endless inspiration to me.

Skiathos x Skopelos.

After my trip to Bali, I spent 6 days at home  before hopping back on a plane to the beautiful Greek island of Skiathos!

Whilst Bali was filled to the brim with activities, water sports and driving round the island, Skiathos was a more laid back and relaxing holiday. My mum and I had booked this at the end of last summer, and we couldn't wait to explore more of the Greek islands. 
We spent most of the week on Skiathos, but hopped on a boat to go their neighbouring island, Skopelos, for two days. 
The two have gained recent popularity from the film, Mamma Mia, and I was worried they may have been ruined from tourists coming to see the filming locations. 
Fortunately, both islands remain mostly undisturbed and in their natural culture. 
With gorgeous, white buildings and independent boutiques, their towns are filled with the Greek lifestyle we crave. The beaches are covered in white sand with crystal clear waters making tiny, glassy waves. 

The food was incredible -we honestly didn't have a bad meal while we were there- and the locals are so friendly and happy to chat and help with any questions you may have. It's clear they are very proud of their Greek heritage. 

Honestly, there is something about the Greek islands that keep you wanting more. Maybe it's the beaches, the locals, the culture. Or maybe it's all of the above plus some more. 

All I know is, I'm craving the Greek way of life
