Lots to love about Koh Lipe

Earlier in the year, I had the great fortune to get to Thai island Koh Lipe – and I LOVED it!! I’d go back in a heartbeat. What’s so great about it? And why should you go? Azure Blue Waters There is just something about the water here, with the ocean displaying all wondrous shades […] Read more…

Trashtastika on YouTube

Hey there 🙂 Yes, I’ve been off updating my Trashtastika YouTube channel which had become a bit dusty…why is why the posts haven’t been as frequent here. I’ve been doing a lot of internet shopping lately however, & I’ll soon be doing some style posts using the fab tops, dresses, jackets etc that I’ve taken […] Read more…

Friday the 13th Make-up ideas

Well, Friday the 13th is here…time to go to spooky themed parties and clubs. Sadly, not for this little black duck – I’ll be working – but I thought I’d drop in a little bit of Friday the 13th inspo, for those who might be gothically inclined….

Dystopian Designers (Part 2)

But before I show piccies of the new place, I should showcase my interior design at the ole place, as it really was pretty spectacular upstairs with the glass-filled conversion and […] Read more…

The Hunger Games effect

I call it the Hunger Games effect. The fact is, those wondrous examples of fashion in the post-apocalyptic world – the shredded distressed jumpers, the matt leather worn-in looking leggings, the hooded draped tunics and cowl necked dresses, the drapey woollen winter coats, the rubberised fabric, the armour-looking accessories – that featured in films we love […] Read more…

East Village Loft Living

  This visit to New York, I again chose to stay in the East Village..but not in a hotel. Oh NO!!! This time, I stayed in a very stylish loft that I found on Air BnB.  Sooo much better, quieter, cheaper and convenient than a hotel. I picked an apartment that was quite minimal in […] Read more…

Dystopian Designers (Part 1)

Why am I writing about Dystopian Designers? Recently I became involved with a very cool film project, being a post-apocalyptic or dystopian film in the near but run-down future with outposts under state military control (think Hunger Games).  It’s called The Cottonwood Fence. Before filming commenced, I helped style the looks for some of the characters […] Read more…
