Disclaimer 26th June 2020: Due to change and education, I have made a pledge to promote only sustainable brands and garments from now on that both fight for a circular economy in fashion and pay garment workers a fair living wage. I have decided to keep all of the former brands and items listed in this blog post as well as keep the original writing for future readers and portfolio. Enjoy reading, shop sustainably. 

Anyone who knows me knows that I love all things that shine and sparkle. I will find any excuse to wear glitter on nights out. Shamefully, (but unshamefully), at festivals I do tend to go overboard but when you wear sequins and glitter, your world seems to transform into some supernatural extra-terrestrial place. Instantly,  you feel like a princess, a fairy, a unicorn, a mermaid and an alien.

The club lights hit you, and you become a beacon of light. Like a lighthouse, you guide lost ships (boys) towards the shore (the bar) and make them buy you a drink or two. Then you frollick away leaving only a trail of glitter and face gems where we once stood. At the beginning of the night you feel like you look really really great, the next morning? Not so much. You wake up looking like you have contracted a rare skin disease.

The aim is to replicate a discoball but with limbs and feelings.
