There's just a mild satisfaction about playing with food. As a child my mum always told me off for playing with food. For this video shoot, I did a lot of fruit crushing. Yep, I was super sticky afterwards!
The new SS14 collection from Terrible Movement has finally arrived and I am in love with every piece. It's 90's vibe is drawing me in and I can't wait to get my hand on a few items - like that drama croptop and crybaby croptop (I want I want I want!) How awesome is the lookbook images? All shot on film and they have a polaroid sort of format - everyone knows I'm a polaroid fanatic! Here's some information on the collection/lookbook, followed by a short teaser of what to expect.
Terrible Movement :: Mixtape
For SS14, Berlin based fashion brand Terrible Movement launch their SS14 “Mixtape” lookbook, inspired by dreamy memories of 90s teen angst and featuring a range of designs with handwritten fonts that pay homage to iconic music lyrics, and the kind of doodles you would scratch on your pencil case, scribble on text books or find in a homemade teen fanzine. To capture the narrative of this collection, Terrible Movement have once again joined forces with photographer Alexandra Waespi to with a Lookbook shot entirely on 35mm and instant film.
Bringing a rainbow of colours to Terrible Movement’s world for the summer season, the process of screen printing – so central to the brand’s distinctive aesthetic – is further explored for SS14 with the use of the split fountain screen printing technique. Split fountain blends ink colours to create gradient prints with flecks, streaks and supposed "imperfections,” producing unique prints that make each tee one of a kind in the best sense, and fully embracing the chaos of printing inks.
The split fountain print technique is echoed in the lookbook with colourful home painted backdrops shot on location in an disused library in South East London. New garments for SS14 include a long sleeved crop tee in the “Crybaby” and “Drama” prints, as well as Terrible Movement’s classic super low-cut muscle tee featuring “Who’s Rad” and the Sonic Youth inspired “Teenage Riot” design. The brand’s iconic “Kiss Me” design also features in the range, with a colourful split fountain gradient print on both a tee and muscle tee in crisp white.
In bringing together a talented group of videographers, stylists, and photographers, Terrible Movement have produced a collaborative “mixtape” of their own with a wistful feel that perfectly mirrors the collection’s designs. Echoing the brand’s handcrafted aesthetic, photographer Alexandra Waespi shot using 35mm film, and on instant Fuji film with an adapted Land Camera. Working with both artificial and natural light, Waespi shot alongside art collective Splitpin Projects who recorded film on VHS, all set to the soundtrack of Creeper - an East London bedroom producer.
The lookbook sees Terrible Movement’s fun, youthful aesthetic complemented by Maria Pizzeria’s kawaii styling with shag bands, cute accessories and hair clips, stand-out sunglasses from Quay Australia and boyfriend-fit pastel and clean white pieces mixed with vintage sportswear, JuJu jelly shoes and the iconic 90s Cat “Colorado” boot.
The range is now available at www.terriblemovement.com and at selected stockists.

Yesterday after having three hours of Japanese class I headed off to meet some friends I hadn't seen for some time. The day was really nice apart from the coldish weather, and the skies were really pretty and almost neon-like. After I was done shooting some street snaps for the magazine I'm working with (yes, I never said I was going to give up photography - just new paths have opened for me. FYI, those who leave messages saying I don't photograph anymore. But how about these images I update on my blog? I've always been more headed towards documentary style photography anyways) we grabbed some bubble tea and then headed off to Selfridges. On a side note and little update: I have less than 18 days to hand in my dissertation (fun.), less than 24 days till I head off to Tokyo for a while (real fun!) Finally I can relax a little since I have found myself a lovely place to stay. I bought myself a compact camera the other day, specifically, to do video diaries for you to see why I love it there so much. So if you want to keep up with me check also my youtube ♡
Last week of February already? Time really flies when you're busy and having fun.. Lately I received these two items that I selected from the new collection. White dress from Motel Rocks and white shoes from Shelly's London. I didn't plan to wear them together, but they arrived at the same time and since it's still a bit wintery around London I put on some black stockings with mickey mouse's face on it..because.. I like it? It worked pretty well since it brought attention to what I was wearing as a whole and I was approached a couple times and asked where I got either items. So, yay me!

These are some of the items on my current wishlist for spring. I am tired of the dull weather here in London, and cannot wait for it to start getting warm and receiving a little bit of sunshine in my life! I have selected a few lot more items that I want over on my minipop which you can check some of the things I have been liking!
Also, I realised it's been forever since I have made a video up on my youtube so I am planning to do something soon! My dissertation deadline was changed to a later hand-in date and I couldn't be more happier that a little more sleep is fine in my life now.
And for those who don't know...
now you know!
I received these cute lip balms from La Balm in the US, and have been using it for some time and it's really helped moisturise and avoid chapped lips during the cold winter in London! I don't know about you, but maintaining soft lips when it's freezing and the air sucking out all the moisture in your face is whilst still trying to look fresh-faced is really hard! I have two scents: Hawaiin Punch and Wild strawberry. The first one is my favourite as I'm not too much of a strawberry fan when it comes to products and sweets (although I do love strawberries as a fruit especially with cream or melted chocolate!) They're all handmade and use natural ingredients. I love the packaging too, it's shiny and I can always spot it at the bottom of my backpack!
They're a US brand but I believe they ship internationally too. So if you're looking for natural handmade products then I really recommend this one!
Here's a little selfie of me posing with a couple of them. It's all I'm wearing today for a fresh-faced look! Days like the that I am just going into Uni to work on this never-ending dissertation work I just want to spend the less amount of time on makeup. Although today I did want to do my hair in pigtail plaits! Has anyone been following NYFW? I saw Marc Jacobs show the other day and loved the hair style of the models. I'll try to see if I can take any better pictures later to show you because I felt like I was living my childhood again. Also, the other day I ate white chocolate, my preference is milk chocolate so I haven't eaten white chocolate in a long time. As soon as I popped it in my mouth I kept having nostalgic moments of me in primary school when teachers would give us white chocolate on a Friday or when there were birthday parties, specifically the white chocolate with the cowboy guy used to always be handed out. It used to be 17p for each bar and I remember always enjoying it after pass-the-parcel games. How about musical chairs? Oh gosh, I miss my childhood now looking back on it! Last selfie of my lips feeling moisturised after using it day and night:
