Currently Listening To... #3

It's time for another Currently Listening To! A list of songs I've found myself playing over and over throughout the past couple months or so. As always I feel like a lot of these were influenced by films I watched. There's the IT soundtrack, songs from Call Me By Your Name, and a rediscovery of America's Sister Golden Hair which I heard for the first time in a while during a Miss Stevens watch. But there's also a running theme of some nice and chill songs which I had in the background while I was getting through dissertation reading - with some more upbeat bops to get me motivated. And of course, a song from my new Father John Misty vinyl (the prettiest thing ever!), a lovely Christmas gift. Enjoy!

1. Sister Golden Hair >> America
2. Six Different Ways >> The Cure
3. Dear God >> XTC
4. I Love You, Honeybear >> Father John Misty
5. Junk >> Paul McCartney
6. Mystery of Love >> Sufjan Stevens
7. Visions of Gideon >> Sufjan Stevens
8. Love My Way >> The Psychadelic Furs
9. Run For Cover >> The Killers
10. Should I Stay or Should I Go >> The Clash
11. Romeo and Juliet >> The Killers
12. Never Give Up On Me >> MisterWives
13. Any Time At All >> The Beatles
14. House of My Soul (You Light The Rooms) >> Langhorne Slim
15. Whole Love >> Wilco
16. City of Angels >> The Head and the Heart
17. Simple Song >> The Shins

From Me to Me

I know this is a self-indulgent post, but because this purchase is so exciting for me, I really wanted to share it with you all. Since Pop & Suki launched I've followed them on Instagram, liking every photo and lusting after every style and colour option they came out with. When, a few months ago, they came out with their Camera Bag in red, I knew I had to set my mind on getting that bag. Say hello to my new baby...

On Feeling Like I'm Going Nowhere

Sorry to be a Negative Nancy on you all, but I wanted to take the time to write about how I'm feeling. And how I'm feeling is a bit lost, and a bit hopeless, and a bit - longing. As some of you may know, I'm nearing the end of university and so the idea of what I'll be doing afterwards is always on my mind. I'm pretty sure I'll be staying on to study an MLitt, but an extra year of studying is going to go by so quickly, and then I'll be out in the cold, having to do something with my life...

My Top 5 Films of 2017

I don't talk about films often around here, but I adore film. I've studied it every year of university even though it technically isn't my degree, because I just love learning about it. For me, 2017 was filled with excellent cinema, and (as of writing this) my list of films I've watched over the year is sitting at 52! The list does include films that are just new to me, but today I wanted to list my five favourites that were actually put out this year. In no particular order...

On Dressing Bolder

Being a blogger, I often compare myself to the people around me. There are so many amazing women whose style I adore, and when I look at my own wardrobe I feel like there isn't any point in my blogging it. However, I've been so excited to take outfit photos recently - and it's not because I've bought a whole new wardrobe, or bought things to specifically blog about. I haven't. It's because I feel like I'm finally coming into my own with my style. Everyone's style changes all the time so I'm sure a year from now I'll feel differently, but for now let's talk about why I think this is...

My Top Beauty Discoveries of 2017

It's the end of the year so it's time to talk about the products I discovered in 2017 that I loved! I've become a real creature of habit with beauty so these are the skincare and makeup bits I've genuinely used just about every day. I really tried to narrow it down to 10 but I just couldn't cut anything, so here's my top 11 of the year...

4 Years of emiloue

Four years. It feels unreal. I can still remember sitting in college and telling my friend Gemma that I'd started a fashion and beauty blog. I would spend my days there then head back home and take photos in my bedroom, using a tripod and awful lighting. I would just take a photo of my outfit from that day, write about why I chose it, then post. I like to think that now I'm much more refined and informational, but let's be real, I'm still the same girl who just likes talking about clothes and makeup...
