Currently Obsessed With... The Music Edition

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you'll know that I'm currently in Paris for Rock en Seine festival, which starts today! Yay! So, in ??? I thought I'd share with you a few of the songs and albums that have been playing on repeat on my iPod, this summer - some of which are old favorites and some I'm looking forward to hearing for the first time this weekend. 




SLEATER-KINNEY 
NO CITIES TO LOVE

Sleater Kinney was my first introduction to the Riot Grrrl movement back in the days - hello, who doesn't love Jumpers? - and I was thrilled to see them coming out with a new album. And believe me, it's a good one! 
Some of my favourite songs on the album include No Anthems, A New Wave, Bury Our Friends and Price Tag







JAMIE XX 
I KNOW THERE'S GONNA BE (GOOD TIMES)

Because listening to this song will forever bring back memories of driving to Glastonbury in a car packed full of camping gear and cans, with some of the best people I know. I did miss his set at Glasto, so I'm even more excited to catch him, this weekend.
Listen to it here.





UH HUH HER 
COMMON REACTION

One of my favourite bands as a teenager, I've slowly been rediscovering Uh Huh Her. There is something  really soothing and yet electrifying about Camilla Grey and Leisha Hailey's vocals.
Some of my favourite songs off the album are Not A Love Song (in all its Myspace-y glory), Wait Another Day and Explode. And let's not even talk about this live acoustic version of Common Reaction, shall we?







BLUR 
GREATEST HITS
This is another blast from the past, but I've been listening to Blur non-stop since I saw them at Hyde Park, last month. They were incredible and I had a blast dancing around to some of my favourite tunes, such as Boys and Girls, Song 2 and Parklife.





Clearly, this summer was a very retro one for me. What have you been listening to lately?

My Sunglasses Collection



My phone, too many bracelets and sunnies - these are a few of the things I rarely ever leave the house without. 

Just like handbags, sunglasses are one of my weaknesses in the sense that I buy way too many, but  somehow justify it because I wear them every day - or whenever the London weather will let me. This summer only, I have already added four pairs to my collection.  FOUR! The latest pair being the infamous Ray-Ban aviators in the orange mirrored shade, which were kindly gifted to me by the lovely people at Sunglasses-Shop. You already knew how much I loved my green ones, but these have barely left my nose ever since they have landed on my doorstep. 

So, how long do you reckon before this video is obsolete? I'm ashamed to say I already have my eyes on these Miu-Miu sunnies... Oops! 

You might have also noticed that I am trying to spend more time and effort on my YouTube channel lately and it would mean the world to me if you could check it out and maybe even subscribe if you like what you're seeing on it. Also, that'd make my little dance party for one a little bit less sad knowing I didn't just do it for myself, don't you think? ; ) 

What's your favourite pair of sunnies at the moment? I think mine definitely have to be my orange mirrored aviators
