Top 10 Reasons I Love Living in Manchester

1. It's flat, so it's easy to cycle or skate everywhere.
2. It's fairly small, so it's easy to travel about, especially with the tram system, the worst thing about London was that it took 40 minutes to get anywhere, here, I can get the tram into town in 15 minutes.
3. The Wonder Inn is just the most magical, wonderful place.
4. I live about 200m from a big vegan supermarket and another 200m from Morrisons, the tram station, bus stop, Boots, Veg shops, Holland and Barrett, 3 craft stores, charity shops and more!
5. There is always something to do, and often it's free. Inner Space runs free meditation/life workshops, there is open mic every night somewhere in the city, Pen:Chant is a wicked spoken word/ music/ comedy night, the Frog and Bucket has free amateur comedy nights every Monday (with a flyer), there are loads of climbing centres, cinemas, vegan food places, art galleries, museums, exhibitions, events etc!
6. It has an airport, the tram goes straight there, and good holiday deals from various websites depart from there!
7. There are loads of gigs and big bands and artists perform here.
8. There are lots of parks and I live a 10 minute walk away from one, which has frisbee golf (another free activity!)
9. People are genuinely friendly, I actually made a friend at a bus stop, that's never happened anywhere else!
10. There are some cool art studios, such as Rogue and AWOL, I'm yet to get a space in one, but one day soon! Plus there are lots of craft fairs/vegan fairs to sell my work!

(10a. I'm an hour away from my BFF in Liverpool! Which is probs one of my fave reasons! :)

Blog Update

I have been thinking of ways to re-brand my blog for the last couple of years. I'm kinda over the whole - taking photo's of myself in different outfits - kinda thing. I am a completely different person these days and so I have decided to become a lifestyle blogger rather than a fashion blogger. Turns out I have quite a lot to say about various topics! I'm still into fashion and am currently in the process of turning myself into a korean boyband member ha ha. But will basically be talking (yes talking!) to you on a more personal level. I started a spiritual journey last year and I want to talk about that and about being vegan and about finding myself and all the trials and tribulations I have experienced so far. So stay tuned! :D

Why I cut all my hair off - pixie update!

I've been trying to find a way to write this post for the last few weeks, I think I needed some time to reflect properly on how I felt about it and how to put it into words. So here goes.

On the 8th July 2014 I genuinely captioned an instagram post: "I'd be nothing without my hair." Along with this photo:

And I currently look like this:

Yeah. Lol.

I used to be obsessed with my hair, and the thought of cutting it terrified me, it truly was my safety blanket. It took me about a year of contemplation to cut off maybe 5 inches of really horribly damaged and bleached, waist length hair, but within a couple of months, I'd cut off a bit more and then a bit more and a bit more. I was totally hooked. It might sound weird, but each time I cut my hair, it was like I was...

It's too cold to blog!

It is officially too cold to be outside in anything other than a puffer jacket, hat, scarves and gloves, so I only got these two rubbish shots lol, sorry guys! I'm gunna find somewhere inside to blog, with heating! My house is probably too dark... Anyway! On to the actual clothes! The red cardigan is refreshingly super soft, stretchy and warm and from...

Peg Trousers Style

I decided recently that I wanted another 'look' to add to my repertoire, I generally look like a skater or hippie these days, but never very smart. I don't know, could you call this smart with a leather jacket and pumps? Let me know! I'm not too sure how I feel about these trousers. They look...

A few more shots from the shoot I did a little while ago :) Skatergirls ftw! <3 This is where I got my trusty R3's and my wheels are Cruise 62mm 78A's, can't remember the bearings, I got them ages ago. I know I haven't blogged in a while, sorry! (I'm pretty active on instagram though @kokoluxe) I've been super busy with my awesome new life in Manchester :D Best place I've ever lived! Got a few things to blog though, so I'll update y'all soon! Thanks for sticking with me lovely people of the interwebs! x

Etched Drinks Personalised Gin

Free gin you say? Well why not :P I was thinking about going to the Yin before Gin class at The Wonder Inn anyway (The most magical place in Manchester!) I love Yin yoga and am partial to a G&T every now and again, so when Etched Drinks got in touch, how could I refuse!...

T-Post Wearable Tshirt

T-post is the world’s first wearable magazine. Basically, it’s a never ending volume, with one story illustrated per T-shirt, or issue as they like to call it. They have subscribers ranging from Jay-Z and Banksy to your average Joe, spread out over 53 countries and have been called ”Awesome” by Time Magazine and ”Reinventing the magazine” By The Wall Street Journal.

I got the XL and cut that shizz up to make a tank top, I also cut out the tag and made it reversible, wearing it inside out and back to front, because the actual article is rad and printed on the inside! It also comes in a wicked A4 cardboard folder with a boy on the front lol x

Zaful Tribal/Aztec Festival Summer Style

How beautiful is this dress, perfect hippie vibes :) And again, I got the dress in a size Large, because Asian sizing... lol. The fabric is soft too. Tom did a great job at capturing me being all floaty and ethereal in a patch of tall grass in a random park in Manchester...
