just going with the flowing


what is this horror?

Eve Rei back on the web?

run for the hills!


I'm sorry I've been gone so long, but there just was no time in between all this new A level chiz


I got a job, fun times, really fun times. I now work in a charity shop, The Children's Society, and I get to sort through the loveliest clothes, like Ralph Lauren, and Whistles and Topshop. And today we got a massive batch of vintage clothes, like a royal blue velvet coat, as well as a black cape complete with a gold leaf clasp.


So if y'all are in Surbiton, on the day of sat, from 2pm, I'll be a'working


Its also that time of the year again.

yes tehe, the whole school production, so I have taken on the task again, of designing and making a portion of the costumes.

I'm telling y'all now, if I see another corset, I will scream.

We're doing Oliver, and I get to create the Strawberry, Milk and Flower sellers. So fun. But I have bled a little on them, seeing as all my pins have turned against me.


Also last week, I got the pleasure of traveling to Florence.

Which is just breath taking.

I thought I was in a dream. Every other store was either ice cream or pizza. And the sky looked like super imposed paintings.

And the art!

Geez Louise!

I think the best way to convey my explosively loving feelings, is through photography


Everything was terracotta and saffron, with shadows of sea green and azure blues.

It was like I was walking in some dream scape, like the kind of place you expect to go when you die and live for the rest of eternity

though excluding the peering perverts, creepy camera cradling pedophiles and crazy hobos predicting the end of the world.

Yes fo'shizzle excluding them


tehehe its Halloweeny tomorrow!

Like my favourite day of the whole year. The day where I finally don't have to explain my crazy clothing habits and can go all theatrical on the poor inhabitants of London suburbia.

Oh joyous of days, must be celebrated in the style of a vintage cheerleader, of course! Last year I was a scottish vampire victim, the year before I was said scottish vampire, and then before that girl hit by car. Blood might be involved this year too...

So I'm going to hike up to London tomorrow and purchase a costume from beyond retro. Tehe I'm probably not going to even do anything tomorrow.

I'll go out and partake in some treating of the tricky kind, and then sit on a beach eating chips.

Cause that just how I roll yo


Happy Hauntings!

your love and general brilliance are like little blinged up dogs, dazzlingly lovely

what an apt and well thought out title


sorry for my lack of posts, but the afore mentioned title has consumed me

what a strange thought

life has consumed me.

England seems to have sunk into autumn now, and the world has suddenly lost all its green and turned yellow and red.

its hardly even bloody October yet 

this sudden winter induced writers block has caused a backlog of blog worthy material, so here I am spilling it

and what fashionable backlog it is

because last Sunday, I got to go to London Fashion Weekend 

my squeeable enjoyment of the day, can only really be conveyed in picture form


I think 'beautiful' best summarizes my day. It really was wonderful and not even the spatterings of rain could dampen it. 

We got front row seats for the catwalk as !well, though I think my sister might have found the box of free special k, a little more exciting. Or maybe that Jade was one of models, might be why we both had a mini freak out half way through it

I was also able to buy some gorgeous earrings from Les Néréides. They are just so cute, and I was really surprised to find them selling clip ons, and now thanks to them I get to have two deliciously sweet ladybirds whispering in my ears.

Talking about ears, I saw the most darling little necklace just as I was leaving. It was a tiny little rabbit with a triple layered chain, from the designer Sam Ubhi, and it made my heart break from its utter adorablity (I think I just made a word up..) I think this calls for an internet scour and possibly a trip to Tooting!


I always have it as I'm typing, a sudden burst of inspiration for a blog post, does anyone else have that.

I'll expend such thoughts into another posts about all my recent buys, which surprising have been quite a lot. Hehe, school just makes me spend more I guess. 

I also just want to share one of my absolute favourite songs. I like listening to covers and remixs a lot more, because I don't know, they're just a lot different, and this one by Lissie is by far one of my favourites. 


your comments and love are the utter most sweetness, like tiny delicate ladybirds buzzing along

xox Eve-rei

p.s. X Factor season is upon us. And oh goodness I've actually fallen in l.o.v.e love with Aiden,

I didn't think any one would be able to replace Olly, but gee damn it that boy can sing! I might have to go listen to him again, hehe.
