Hello and welcome to today’s She Hearts Sunday. Today I have a huge selection of hearts, and despite trying to whittle them down, there was just no leaving any of these out! From new music loves to inspirational fashion, to exhibitions opening this week you can look forward to a whole host of entertainment to fill up your Sunday afternoon. So, without further ado, let’s get started with the first heart of the day.
She Hearts…Birdy Nam Nam
My boyfriend and I came across this track and the awesome video a few nights back, and now I’m absolutely in love with Birdy Nam Nam. As an electro lover, and a French-electro lover at that, I can’t imagine a more likely act to fall for. Birdy Nam Nam’s Defiant Order has been one of the only tracks of late that has actively made me sit up and listen, and I’m desperate for a Defiant Order jacket…possible DIY project coming up. Check it out and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
She Hearts…& Other Stories
As soon as I heard H&M were starting up a new high end store, and right here in London no less, I just couldn’t stop looking up new amazing pieces from the collection. Newly opened on Regent Street, the store has received a whole host of great rep from the who’s who of fashion and I cannot wait to get down there myself and check it out. H&M are always on it with the latest trends, so it makes sense that their higher end brand is cutting edge too, I’ve already got my eye on an incredible pair of sunnies, here. Prices range from £6 to around £150 so it’s not going to be a destination that breaks your bank, but it’ll still feel like a treat when you pick something up instore. If you can’t get to Regent Street, they have an online store too, wahey! Check it out here, at stories.com.
A totally different track from today’s first now, but an incredible one nonetheless. I heard this song on the latest episode of The Walking Dead (a fave in our household) and thought it was gorgeous. This has been fighting with Defiant Order for my song of the moment, and I find myself listening to this on loop at the moment. Needless to say, my neighbours probably now hate Fink. I strongly urge you to get this in your life, you won’t regret it, such a spine-tingling-ly good song. Yes, that is a thing.
She Hearts…Offbeat Outfit Inspiration
One of my absolute favourite fashion-focused Youtubers, has to be Sunbeamsjess. Just because Jess is away on her gap year, doesn’t mean she hasn’t left a whole host of great videos for her subscribers while she’s away. This week an OOTD video went up that really made me want to get more experimental with my wardrobe. I love how fearless and uncompromising Jess is with her fashion choices, she just 100% goes for it, and it spurs me on to be more creative with my clothes. So, if you need some inspo to get you out of your comfort zone, look no further.
The lovely Leanne of LLimWalker is the first of two new Youtubers of which I want to send some love to today. Leanne’s channel popped up in my suggested sidebar and after watching a few seconds of a recent haul, I instantly subscribed. She only has eight videos up so far, but I adore her style and haul picks. Her latest video, a pastel gradient nail tutorial is amazing and I think everyone should go give her channel a look, you won’t be disappointed. I’m always up for repping fellow Brit bloggers and vloggers and Leanne definitely deserves a shout out, her channel is one of my new favourites!
She Hearts…David Bowie Is
I cannot contain my excitement about this upcoming exhibition that opens on Friday at the V&A. The V&A is one of my favourite places in the world, and I can’t think of a better venue to celebrate the life and work of the incredible David Bowie. Since I was a little kid, and my Dad would play me his records, I have loved him, all the way through my uni years where we would blast him out in the kitchen, and of course my sister and I are hardcore Labyrinth fans. If you grew up in the ’90s too, it will have been a big part of your childhood I’m guessing! So, needless to say this is a big one for me and I’ll be wearing my new amazing Bowie tee from Primark for the occasion- I’ll be sure to get an OOTD up when I do hit the exhibition. For more information on the exhibition check it out on the V&A site here, and in the meantime enjoy one of me and my sister’s faves, from the amazing Labyrinth!
She Hearts…Pepperminty Milk
No, that’s not a new drink that I’ve been loving, it’s the second of my new Youtube channel loves. As I’ve mentioned before I’m always on the lookout for new channels to subscribe to, and I hit the jackpot this week when I discovered Pepperminty Milk. As with LLimWalker, after a few seconds into her thrifting video, I had to subscribe. Maevana finds amazing thrifty bargains, has a great eye for second hand and loads of suggestions of ways to fix up and wear pieces that you might find at charity shops or antiques stores. If you love thrifting, saving yourself a penny or two and all things vintage then this channel is going to be right up your street, I can’t believe I’ve gone all this time without being a subscriber. If you haven’t already checked out peppermintymilk, you totally should.
That’s it for today’s She Hearts Sunday! Be sure to check back next week for more great picks and don’t forget to let me know what you’ve been loving this week by leaving me a comment below or by tweeting me @MillieDelacoe. Until next time…
