NEW T.V. Show / BROWNIES recording / DUSKY shop


Just another quicky... 

As always, many things have prevented me from my bloggy wog, and this upsets me.

I'm in the studio this week recording with the band at the legendary Leeders Farm studio with David Pye himself - one of the leading men in beard owning.
We're getting 4 new tracks down before our beautiful drummer/best friend Mike moves away to Leeds next week, to pursue another drumming role with Dinosaur Pile Up. BOO HOO. 
On the bright side, we have a new song called 'Tropical Linda'. Need I say more?

I am also coming towards the end of uni too.. so things are intense as ever! However, as promised, it's not much longer to wait until my new Dusky shop item is up for sale - but for now, it is STILL possible to buy a tooth necklace - but be quick if you want one - because when they are gone they are gone!

I've also been making TONS of new DIY experiments that i need to share with you. To tide you over, my new online T.V. show is finally available online! It's only the pilot (we've already recorded the second episode) - and for some reason, i am talking like an animal in heat - apparently my nervous defense involves sex eyes and shoulder dancing.

Watch it here:

Hope yaaa'll well!

Tell me something new?

50% necklace discount and pictures/YeahYeahYeahs and The Brownies Live Video!!

Bonjour!
I'm working super hard on the next creation to go into the Dusky Shop. It's sexy, and I love it.

However, this also means that there are only TEN days left to scoop one of the remaining Gross Tooth Necklaces:

Mmmmmm Gross Tooth necklace in sexy presentation box

When they are gone, they are gone, and I shan't be making more!

If you are skint, then get a load of this baby:

For the first 3 people to click on my shiny new EMAIL ME button to the left, I will send you a MASSIVE 50% discount code, PLUS free shipping
Sit on my lap and call me Santa huh?

Now, if you want to see how amazing you might look in a a GTN (gross tooth necklace), check out the marvelous Gem Fatale in her  gore-tastic necklace:



 She was also spotted at London fashion week by BOOHOO.com, wearing her necky:



Basically, i think i might be in love with her.. her cat, and her blog.


In other news:

I had an operation yesterday - only a minor thing - but i got put under general anesthetic and have only been able to sleep for 4 hours since! 
I woke up at 6 this morning, wide awake designing a dress in my head and making a mental list of things i want to buy. So at a slightly more reasonable hour, I called my beautiful mama and went for an early morning stroll around Norwich with her.

Somehow, within the space of 10 minutes, I managed to buy 2 blazers, a faux-leather jacket, a skull t-shirt, a ruffle dress, some patent court shoes and book myself a hair cut. 

I don't buy stuff often, and had no idea it could be this easy. And it was so cheap - All the jackets were from H&M who have a £10 off jackets offer at the moment, which made the blazers £5 a pop. 
Sweet as a nut. 
I'm never shopping after 10am ever again.

Predictably though, I crashed around mid afternoon and haven't done a whole lot since bar eating and watching DVDs.

So instead of a fashion show for your viewing pleasure, I thought I would show you one of the many videos popping up on facebook and youtube of our recent Brownies gigs.

We hardly ever do covers, but my beloved sister Charley, recorded this special one-off beast at our Record Label NRONE's 5th Birthday party gig at Norwich Arts Centre. 

We played Yeah Yeah Yeah's -Date With the Night
Screechy, messy, fuck yeah.






I'm so tired, that I'm watching the Hills. 
It's the only thing that keeps me angry enough to stay awake until a proper bed time.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

P.s. Make sure you listen to my BBC Norfolk Introducing show tomorrow night for news of the new T.V. show and to hear the Kabeedies take over the air waves! Ohhhhh..

T.V. Show / New Top

Well hello. 

Two love bites of information for you: 

One.
I have a new T.V. show coming out at the end of this week. It's a BBC Norfolk Introducing production, presented by myself and my lovely co-presenter Greg, showcasing lots of little sessions/music videos/interviews/features with the best up and coming bands across the region but also elsewhere!
I finished filming for the pilot episode tonight, and it looks amazing!

If should be available to watch online at the weekend!


Two.
New top. New top.
This is what I wore today. 
(Now, after 4 hours of recording, and one massive indian meal with Lee, you might notice that the twinkle has left my eye, and i am, to say the very least, a tad bloated).

(Lets play a game... it's called spot the crap in the background. 10 points for each item spotted)

Anyway, to cut a long story short - filming had some rather specific clothing dos and donts - and my wardrobe was just one HUGE dont.
So after two panic attacks and pissing a few people off yesterday, i settled with a lace body from topshop. 
But, it was not meant to be. My torso must be abnormally long, because there was a serious camel toe situation to deal with when i tried it on.

Today however, on a little trip to take back the evil lace body, i stumbled across this top in Miss Selfridge - a shop I never go in to - and I immediately fell in love.

What do you think?

One last thing. I have started a facebook group for Dusky Ledoux.
I'm going to endeavour to make it something different from this and my twitter - a place to see caasssual photos and talk to like-minded people... YEAH?

Love Love Love
