Things got a little messy in the Isko Denim X Bethnals room over LFW at the Apartment, but it didn’t make us want to hang out there any less. Anyway, here’s another outfit I wore during LFW. It was so weird this season, wearing clothes that were genuinely comfortable but equally looked awesome! I tend to do too comfy and wear clothes one would wear to. I don’t know.. the supermarket..okay perhaps not that bad. Anyway, all of the items are still available with the dress even being reduced to around £18 (yes it’s a dress, not a skirt), so go check them out!

New Marvel HQ: Entrance & Office

October 23, 2014

Kris Atomic New Mavel HQ -6242

Okay, so here we are! The first installation of #NewMarvelHQ! Here you can see my brand new entrance and office! If you saw my Pinterest board in my previous post, then you are already aware that I wanted quite a clean and modern vibe. Pops of colour when necessary but mostly whites and cold colours. There isn’t copious amounts to say with this area as it was probably the most straight forward part of the house, but that being said it is one of the most important. It’s literally the first thing people see; it sets the mood for the rest of the house and so I didn’t want it to be too cluttered or colourful and i think I successfully achieved a nice welcoming entrance.. thoughts?

New Marvel HQ: The before’s & inspiration!

October 21, 2014

Over the summer I decided that it was time to give my home/office a major upgrade. I sat on Pinterest for HOURS, scoured the internet for ideas and put together a board brimming with so much potential. Months later, everything is finished and I want to give you the official behind  the scenes. So this post is all about the before/during images and my inspiration!BEFORE 1 BEFORE 2 BEFORE 3

So it was pretty dated, basic and well not so inspiring, I spent time thinking about what each room was going to embody and what they’re focus would be, be it chilling, working etc. here’s my Pinterest board filled with links to products I actually did buy for the #NewMarvelHQ project!
