If you're a religious follower of The Gyspy Shrine you'll know that one of our fave mega babes is brand ambassador, Girl Gang member and glitter artist Shannon! This lil stunner always wows us when it comes to creating glitter looks on her self and customers but when we paired Shannon with our fave MUA of the moment - girl boss Zoe Ellen, they both raised the bar for the glitter and makeup game. WE ARE SHOOK! 

We invited Zoe into our studio to make over our girl Shannon and this was the outcome...

Zoe absolutely wowed us and we can only wish that she could do our makeup everyday! We'll 100% be trying to create this bubblegum pink look for Coachella! WE ARE OFFICIALLY IN LOVE!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST - JESS!

 

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST - JESS!

We love keeping you updated on the glitter goss, so we caught up with our ultimate girl boss for the latest edition of 'A Day in The Life of a Gypsy Shrine Artist'.

Meet Jess, our fellow Mancunian and bad ass brunette glitter queen.  We find out about her most memorable glitter moments, how she'd survive on a desert island and why she'd love to glitter up David Attenborough!


GypsyShrineJessCarswellGlitter


What's the best thing about being a Gypsy Shrine artist?

 Covering yourself in glitter, obviously!!

Well that and also working with the most AMAZING, EMPOWERING, SUPPORTIVE group of women I’ve ever met!

The Gypsy Shrine is honestly like a sisterhood, we all support each other and help each other to grow both personally and creatively and we have the best time!!!

 

GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter

What's your favourite look you've ever created?

I loved my Valentine's Day look I created... The pink chunky glitter is so cute and girly and I love any of the silver face gems! They go with everything!!

 

Describe yourself in 3 words..

Ambitious, adventurous, adorable - (but only for about 20 minutes after I’ve eaten!) 

GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter


What's been the most memorable event with The Gypsy Shrine?

Cheshire House Wives!! Without giving too much away, I spent a day with The Wards getting them ready for a upcoming event and  I LOVED it!!

They were so warm and welcoming and we had so much fun! It was the longest shift I’ve worked but definitely the best!

What are your top 3 favourite beauty products you can't live without?

Dr Lipp – This is a lip balm, glitter fixer, eyebrow tamer all round amazing product and I find for festivals and holidays its fab!! You can press glitter on to it, or even eyeshadow pigments and it holds them perfectly!

Tan! – I’m torn between Bondi Sands and Fake Bake! Sometimes I mix both together, but nothing beats a good sun kissed tan!

Highlighter – I like my glow to be seen from space, I have about ten highlighting products in my personal kit and my current fave is Doll Beauty in ‘Shine Bright’

GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter
GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter

When you're not glittering everyone up, what do you do in your spare time?

I’m a full time Make-Up artist and Hairstylist which keeps me very busy!! I’m constantly on the go, which I love!

On my odd day off you’ll find me either on some kind of adventure, running or climbing or the complete opposite on a night out with my girls drinking cocktails and dancing the night away!

GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter

You're stranded on a desert island and can only take 3 things, what would they be?

Music – Any kind of music!

A bikini – Obvs!

Can I take my sister? – She would live it up with me until we ran out of food and then come up with a plan to get us home, whilst I tan, listening to my music in my bikini!

GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter

Festivals or holidays?

There’s no place quite like Glastonbury for me, I love it!

However, where I can I like to combine the two! I went to Barcelona a couple of years ago and did ‘Off Sonar’ which was unbelievable! It should definitely be on everyone’s bucket list!

What ultimate life motto do you live by?

Everything will be okay in the end, because if it's not okay, it's not the end!

I think you're always meant to be where you should be, and that little motto keeps me grounded.

GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter

If you could glitter any celebrity who would it be, and why?

If I could go back in time, 1000% George Michael!  Although RuPaul, David Attenborough and  Beyoncé would be AMMMAZZINNGGG!

If I had to pick just one, it would be Jennifer Sauder’s - I think she AB FAB!  I love her Sass and I think she would be a great glitter model!

 

GypsyShrineJessicaCarswellGlitter

What advice do you have for an aspiring Gypsy Shrine artist?

You better get ready to work gurl!!!

No seriously working for The Gypsy Shrine is my favvvvv job EVER, the people, the products and the experiences we have! We are so lucky! But you better be ready to work hard, be professional and be supportive!

Oh and you better be ready to be constantly covered in glitter – I mean constantly!


If you love Jess as much as we do then follow her Insta for all her all latest looks and to see what she gets up to! @jessicac.artistry

Our current girl crush: Miss Lottie Geliot. If you haven't already stalked her on Instagram, please do everyone a favour and click here. Right, you now understand why she's the latest Gypsy Shrine artist to feature in THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST. 

Not only does her amazing talent in glittering people over make us green with envy but her style is absolute GOALS. We find out who Lottie's style inspiration is, what she'd be doing if she wasn't a Gypsy Shrine artist and which member of the Spice Girls she'd love to give a glitter makeover too. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.05.46 PM.png

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A GYPSY SHRINE MAKE UP ARTIST? 

 THE GIRLS! We get to work with the most gorgeous bunch of individuals. I’ve made so many new friends since working with the Gypsy Shrine - everyone is super talented, motivated and always a lot of fun. Secondly its definitely the travelling! I adore seeing new places and the Shrine has taken me to so many amazing locations - for example NEW YORK CITY ?!?!!!

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.06.55 PM.png

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FOR DIFFERENT GLITTER LOOKS FROM?

DRAG QUEENS - I am obsessed . They are incredible artists and transform there faces into pieces of art & I love that. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.08.27 PM.png

DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE IN THREE WORDS.

1 word … Bi-Polar

My style changes so often and definitely with my mood / environment - I’m forever stuck between being super colourful or grungy and black. I also love vintage pieces- especially from the 70's era. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.09.00 PM.png

IF YOU WEREN’T A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU DO?

Alongside being a glitter pixie with The Gypsy Shrine, I am a production designer. (Set design) My roles vary from being the art department assistant to the head of department depending on the scale of production. Film making has been my passion since I can remember. 

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.08.46 PM.png

ON A SCALE FROM 1-10, (10 BEING THE HIGHEST), HOW ADDICTED TO GLITTER ARE YOU?

Now that the new bio range is out I'm gunna have to go with 20/10 . - ya'll gunna see me rolling in it.

UNICORNS OR MERMAIDS?

MERMAIDS - no contest.

WHAT ONE SONG IS ALWAYS ON YOUR NIGHT OUT PLAYLIST?

'I look fuckin' cool' by Adore Delano - pure sass and they make me laugh.

IF YOU COULD GLITTER UP ANY MEMBER OF THE SPICE GIRLS WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHAT LOOK WOULD YOU CREATE ON THEM?

BABY SPICE!!! I would love to give her a cotton candy fantasy

look using the eclipse glitter range and a mixture of jewels. 

LOVE LOTTIE AS MUCH AS WE DO?

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 10.08.28 AM.png

WHO ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT HAVE INSPIRED YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR CAREER IN MAKEUP?

I have always been a huge fan of the Gypsy Shrine since coming across their glitter looks on Instagram. The artists featured on the page really inspired me to give glittering a go! Since getting into it I've come across so many amazing artists. I love @SAMANTHAHELENMUA for her amazing SFX talent. @PMON6 and @THRILLSOFTOMORROW for their creativity alongside @LUCYHARTMAKEUPARTIST and @RHIABARTONMUA for their glam. 

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 10.10.27 AM.png

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO WEAR THE GYPSY SHRINE PRODUCTS?

I love a classic head jewel with glitter around the eyes it's such a simple but effective look to achieve. Also, you can't go wrong with the iridescent all in one body jewel on the chest with a bit of sparkle coming off it. My fave glitter to use is SILVER  ECLIPSE and IRIDESCENT DIAMOND.

 

FESTIVALS OR HALLOWEEN?

ALWAYS FESTIVALS. I am addicted.

 

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE MIGHT NOT EXPECT ABOUT BEING A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST?

You get to meet so many other amazing artists killing it! I have learnt so many techniques and have been completely inspired by the other girls. Everyone is rooting for each other to be the best they can be.  If you love a look, you tell them you love that look! It makes you feel so much more empowered by what you are doing.   

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 10.09.45 AM.png

WHAT IS THE WEIRDEST YET WONDERFUL GLITTER LOOK YOU’VE EVER CREATED?

Halloween was definitely weird and wonderful! The look that sticks out the most is the girl who asked to be a mermaid and wanted me to apply blue dye to her hair! THANK GOD it worked and she looked AWESOME! 

 

 

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE AS A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST?

This is tough! Each event has been memorable in different ways. Probably Halloween at Topshop, Oxford Street as it was crazy busy! Also The Gypsy Shrine Christmas party. That was such a good laugh. 

 

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 10.08.08 AM.png

WHAT IS YOUR ULTIMATE GIRL BOSS QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?

giphy.gifgbg.gif

CAITLYN JENNER

“If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead, because the reality is, I can take it, but for the thousands of kids out there coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.”

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST - FREYA

Because you gems loved getting the latest lowdown from Gypsy Shrine Artist Chess, (read our previous blog post if you feel like you've missed out on the glitter goss), we are letting you into the sparkle circle to feed you more Gypsy Shrine secrets. You're welcome.

Meet Freya, our blonde bombshell Gypsy Shrine artist, with the ability to transform anyone into the ultimate glitter babe of dreams! We wanted to test Freya and ask her some FOR REAL life or death questions that we couldn't even answer. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 12.52.48 PM.png

WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER, GIVE UP FESTIVALS OR GIVE UP HOLIDAYS?

Holidays DERRR!! Nothing compares to a crowd full of colour, love, passion for music and of course glitter. Where else in the world can your inner rainbow and wicked dance moves be acceptable? 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF GLITTER LOOK TO CREATE ON A CUSTOMER?

Has to be the famous glitter boobs. There's nothing like empowering women to celebrate their bodies and seeing the confidence it gives people.  

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 12.49.42 PM.png

ARE YOU MORE A FASHION QUEEN OR BEAUTY BASED BABE?

THIS IS HARD!!! Can I say both? I can't go anywhere without my flared pants as there is something amazing about finding one-off vintage items, so I'd have to say fashion queen. 

WHATS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST HIGHLIGHT SO FAR AS A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST?

To choose one is SO HARD! However, I'd say my first ever time working for the Gypsy shrine. It may not have been the biggest event I've done to date but working Kendall calling festival with the ultimate glitter QUEENS has to be up there. What an experience it was. Safe to say I made memories and friends for life that weekend! #festivalfamilygoals 

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 12.54.09 PM.png

COACHELLA OR GLASTONBURY?

Glastonbury will ALWAYS have my heart! I have been going ever since I was 13 years old and every year it just gets better and better. 

IF YOU COULD GLITTER UP THE CAST ON ANY REALITY TV SHOW, WHICH SHOW WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

The Kardashians, purely for their amazing bums. Can you imagine those giant peaches covered in gems and glitter? YASSSS! Kris Jenner also knows how to throw a good party, who wouldn't want to get invited to one of those.

DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A GYPSY SHRINE MAKEUP ARTIST IN ONE WORD

GLIT-TASTIC!!!

THE GYPSY SHRINE BLOGGER OTM X CHARLOTTE HOLE

THE GYPSY SHRINE BLOGGER OTM X CHARLOTTE HOLE

Blogger of the Month

CHARLOTTE HOLE

The Gypsy Shrine introduces you to our fabulous new feature,  Blogger of the Month! With February being the month of love, we wanted a blogger whose style we were madly in love with! We wanted a blogger whose style we wanted to be our Valentine. This February, our chosen blogging BABE is Charlotte Hole. Charlotte gives us major fashion inspiration, (and envy), especially in the Summer months, with her effortless festival attire and quirky Boho style. Covering content from fashion and lifestyle to travelling around the world, we have her ultimate blogger gossip and fashion-forward tips which we thought you guys would love to know. 

IMG_9514.jpg

Q. How did you start your blogging journey?

I started my blogging journey 5 years ago when I was a retail assistant at Urban Outfitters. I started shooting their new in clothing for their Facebook page each week, then I thought to myself "Why don't I just start my own blog?!". Nothing used to excite me more than creating outfit posts for my own little space on the internet, where I could inspire those who were also interested in thrifty finds and cheap high street buys. I really want to start my blog up again properly this year! It's too easy to forget why you started in the first place.

Screen Shot 2018-02-13 at 9.44.32 AM.png

Q. What’s your current favourite fashion or beauty trend?

Bold colours! I'm obsessed with wearing colours of the rainbow right now. I'm trying to add more colour into my wardrobe instead of getting too comfortable wearing black in these colder months. 

Q. Are you a festival babe or an Ibiza party girl?

Festival girl all the way! Though, I do love that Ibizan sunshine. I'm dying to check out a few new festivals abroad this summer.

Q. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

CUBA! I've been craving to visit here for a while now and check out Havana and the coastal areas. Some of the travel shots I've seen have blown me away. Since the country is so new to tourism, I feel this would be the best time to get there and check it out. I need to download a Spanish app first though!

Q. What other bloggers inspire you?

Megan Ellaby will always be my number one. Megan's outfit shots are so effortless, fresh and fun! I absolutely adore her style, and she's just as incredible in person as she is online too.

Q. Heels or Flats?

I've got into flats too much recently so I've become a bit too lazy with my heels. I always love a good boot heel though, I'm only 5ft3 so I definitely feel more confident with that extra height!

Q. You’re a total boss babe.. how do you define success?

Everybody has their own idea of success, for me personally I base my success on my happiness. Success to me isn't about having the money or other materialistic things in life, as long as I'm happy each day continuing to work towards something I enjoy then I'm succeeding.

6 Signs You're Addicted to Glitter

6 Signs You're Addicted to Glitter

Are you waking up with last nights glitter on your face? Doing the walk of shame plastered in jewels and gems? We're diagnosing you with a case of TGS glitteritis. Unfortunately, we don't have a lifetime cure for all you glitter patients out there but we can diagnose you through some of the most common symptoms. Before you leave your bed and risk infecting the world with sparkle and shine, (not that we're complaining), read our 6 signs you're addicted to glitter and prepare yourself for having glitteritis...

 

1. You Eat Glitter for breakfast

Instead of finding toast crumbs in your bed are you finding specs of glitter instead? This is one of the earliest signs that you're addicted to glitter. The phrase 'eat glitter for breakfast' is more of an ambition for you because if you could, you actually would. Let's face it though, pics of glittery food is so much cuter than pics of ordinary food.  

 

2. Bathe in Glitter

Is your version of getting clean, covering yourself with extra glitter? If you've always dreamed of bathing in a tub full of glitter and lush glitter bath bombs just don't cut it then maybe you've become glitter obsessed. Congratulations you've made it, you're a glitter bubble bombshell!

 

3. Everything You Touch Turns to Glitter

If you've left a trail of glitter behind you post getting ready for a party, not only is your hoover going to be a sparkly explosion when you empty it, but you've gone glitter mad. Don't be concerned though, our life motto is 'add abit of outfit to that glitter!'

 

4. Glitter Party Girl

Who needs a DJ deck, neon lights or a disco ball in the club when you're there? If you uploaded a pic on the gram from last nights outfit pic and the caption was the twinkle emoji than I think we can both be honest and say you have glitteritis. We are all for glitter on top of glitter for a night out look but let us all pray that we don't see glitter in the toilet after that 5th Jager Bomb your bestie made you down. 

 

5. We Need No Underwear in Here

Are you the type of girl to sling off your bra halfway through walking through the door of your house? Do you often wear tight dresses where you get VPL if you have underwear on? The chances are if you nodded to one of those questions then you've already rocked TGS glitter boobs or glitter booty. You might as well ditch underwear for life! Glitter is the way forward when you have gliteritis.

6. You're Beautiful Like Diamonds in The Sky

Just remember, if you have just finished reading this and have diagnosed yourself as having an addiction to glitter, The Gypsy Shrine Girls are here for you, it's hereditary for us. So in the words of Queen RiRi, 'You're beautiful like diamonds in the sky', however, we always aim to sparkle way more than diamonds do. GLITTER IS A GIRLS BEST FRIEND!

Meet our Gorgeous Gypsy Shrine Artist Chess

Meet mega babe Chess, one of our most talented artists here at The Gypsy Shrine. If you want the ultimate glitter makeover then Chess is your girl! We wanted the low down on her glitzy glam lifestyle from Gypsy Shrining the CBB housemates to studying a degree. We wanted the latest goss on glitter and to give all the aspiring makeup artists out there an insight into what's it like working for the sparkliest, funkiest and coolest brand. THE GYPSY SHRINE!!!!!

unnamed 4.jpg

Can you give us a quick insight into a day in the life of a Gypsy Shrine artist at work? 

I guess it really depends on the job! One of the best things about working for the Gypsy Shrine is the variation of jobs we do! You’ll always know in advance whether it’s a festival, event or shoot. For events usually, we will arrive an hour before it begins to get set up, glitter ourselves (or each other), before spending the evening glittering clients to their request and depending on the brief. No matter what we work on its always so much fun and our customers are always the best! 

unnamed 5.jpg

Which celebrity would you give the ultimate Gypsy Shrine makeover to? 

The queen…..BEYONCE.

What's the best job we've ever sent you on?

Ooo I would say either going to Athens or Celebrity Big Brother, that was such a cool experience, it was so fun to glitter the celebs and have a taster of what it would be like to live inside the house.

What do you do when you're not glittering people up with The Gypsy Shrine?

I freelance as a makeup artist, I mainly work with musicians but I’ve worked on films, TV, Fashion and everything in between! I’ve just started a degree in Anthropology at Goldsmiths University, I love learning about people, cultures and history it's so interesting, I’m a big nerd! I also paint and create my own collage art on @cashbranduhcute   

unnamed.jpg

Would you rather rock a Glitter Booty or Glitter Boobs for the rest of your life? 

Boobs! no more bras haha!

Are you a girly pink babe or a 'does this come in black' kind of girl? 

Oh definitely ‘does this come in black’! Working with some of the other girls has definitely pushed me to try things out of my comfort zone though. I love Patricia and Lottie’s style they always look amazing. 

unnamed 2.jpg

If you could only wear one Gypsy Shrine product for all of this year's festivals which would it be and why? 

I love the iridescent candy kiss, it goes with everything! Even black!!

Do you have any girl boss quotes that you live by? 

Always admire the beauty of others without questioning your own. (I thought that was cute!)

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.25.19 PM.png

What tips and advice do you have for aspiring Gypsy Shrine artists? 

Practice different looks on your friends until you’re super confident and don’t be afraid to channel your own style into your work, try something new and fun, and keep an eye on your timings, if you’re working at a festival you’ve got to be speedy and still make the customers look amazing! Always be up for everything and every opportunity because you never know where a small job could lead.

Although us Gypsy Shrine Girls are super excited about the New Year and wondering what fresh and funky milestones 2018 will bring, we just can't let go of how amazing 2017 was. It has been yet another sparklelicious year here at The Gypsy Shrine. From the Summer festival seshes to the party hard season we've made every occasion go out with a glitter bomb bang! Here are our top 13 Glitter and Jewel Looks from last year... RIP 2017 you will be truly missed.

GYPSY SHRINE PRODUCTS USED: RAINBOW CHEST PIECE & CHUNKY GOLD GLITTER

GYPSY SHRINE PRODUCTS USED: MULTI MIX GLITTER & MIX N MATCH JEWELS

The only glitter option for a glam girly girl. After we saw this pretty in pink picture, we could only wish we could pull off pastel pink hair as well as our girl Emily Owen does. Instead of reaching for pink hair dye, we think we might play it safe in 2018 and reach for more glitter and jewels instead...

The Queen of Playlists

Think club classics, pop princesses and ultimate girl empowered anthems. We have you covered with the perfect party playlist too pre-drink too before NYE with your girl gang. So do not stress and get your jager bombs at the ready and prepare yourself for these absaloute bangers!

kesha-woman-screenshot-billboard-1548.jpg

"I don't need a man"

Queen Ke$ha

Ke$ha – Woman

Top lyric:

            “I’m a motherfucking woman baby alright, I don’t need a man to be holding me too tight”

This lyric says it all. Ke$ha has come back from one of the most prolific sexual assault cases of all time to release a Number 1 Grammy-nominated album and we respect her so much for that and this song for its bold message.

 

"So I tell myself, I do"

Mega Babe Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa – New Rules

Top Lyric:

            “But my love, he doesn’t love me so I tell myself, I do, I do, I do”

As the breakout artist of 2017, and the #1 listened to female on Spotify (beating even Rihanna and Taylor Swift!) Dua Lipa became the first female to have a UK Number one with our song of the summer ‘New Rules’ since Adele in 2015. This song is all about getting over that breakup in your life and loving yourself. 

spice-girls-1997-billboard-1548.jpg

"Friendship never ends"

Girl Squad Goals Spice Girls

Spice Girls – Wannabe

Top lyric:

            “If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, make it last forever, friendship never ends”

One of the most famous girl power songs of all time tells your lover that your girls are number 1, make sure he knows that friendship never ends.

little-mix-power-music-video.jpg

"I Got the Power"

BFF Goals Little Mix 

Little Mix ft. Stormzy – Power

Top lyric:

            “You’re the man, but I got, I got the, I got the power”

From the biggest girl group of all time to the new girl group dominating the world, girl power is officially BACK. They’ve even got the Man-of-the-moment Stormzy to tell the world “You can be a woman and a boss at the same time”, he faced some controversy from fans over this feature but was quick to tell them “Coz I rate Little Mix. More than I rate some rappers tbh”. Not that we need a man to tell us, but just to solidify

BEYONCE81-5533.jpg

"Get back to business"

Queen B

Beyonce – Run The World (Girls)

Top Lyric:

            “Boy I know you love it, How we’re smart enough to make these millions, Strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business”

We could’ve picked the most obvious lyric in this song, as we know who run this world, but this lyric shows just how much we do. We can make millions, bear children and then get straight back to business. Don’t underestimate us, because you will be disappointed.

demi-lovato-confident-album-photoshoot_1.jpg

"What's wrong with being confident"

Diva Demi

Demi Lovato – Confident

Top Lyric:

            “What’s wrong being, what’s wrong with being confident?”

Quite simply; what is wrong with being confident? Take advice from Demi and be yourself this New Year’s Eve.

o-WHITNEY-HOUSTON-facebook.jpg

"I'm every woman"

Miss Houston

Whitney Houston – I’m Every Woman

Top Lyric:

            “I’m every woman, it’s all in me, anything you want done baby, I’ll do it naturally”

One of the original female empowerment songs from the original diva Whitney Houston here, with the chorus simply stating that anything you want done, we can do it naturally. This is one that will definitely get women of all ages up and dancing this New Year’s!

haileesteinfeld-mostgirls.jpg

"Feel like a damn queen"

Little Miss Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld – Most Girls

Top Lyric:

            “You know some days you feel so good in your own skin, but it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in, ‘cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen”

Hailee is known for her female empowerment songs but ‘Most Girls’ is our favourite and always makes us feel like a queen. Look no further for a song that tells you to be yourself and how to flaunt it!

5a5b0e7c-d0bd-4acb-b1eb-162a82fe0957.jpg

"Your Ass better show me some respect"

Girl Bosses Fifth Harmony

Fifth Harmony – Bo$$

Top Lyric:

           "Working for the money cause that’s what my mam taught me, so your ass better show me some respect”

Much like Destiny’s Child, Fifth Harmony are here providing lessons on how to demand the respect you deserve. Getting inspiration from queens like Michelle Obama and Oprah, this song will get you feeling like the true Boss you are.

destiny-child-brits-2001-1392309980-view-0.jpg

"What you think about me"

Girl Gang Destiny's Child

Destiny’s Child – Independent Woman pt. 1

Top Lyric:

            “Question: Tell me what you think about me, I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings, Only ring your celly when I’m feeling lonely, When it’s all over please get up and leave”

Girl Power lesson 101 here. This song, like us, celebrates “All the women, who independent” and this will be the one for the noughties girl in all of us. Don’t forget to tell that guy that you’re only calling him for your benefit - when it’s over, he needs to leave.

Other Bangers:

Camila Cabello – Havana

Cyndi Lauper – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Daya – Sit Still Look Pretty

Hailee Steinfeld – Love Myself

Fifth Harmony – That’s My Girl

Christina Aguilera ft. Lil Kim – Can’t Hold Us Down

Lady Gaga – Born This Way

Here at The Gypsy Shrine, we may look like a bunch of fierce gals drenched in glitter… but we’re so much more than that! We strive to inspire, support and elevate other women whether that be in our industry or not.

We know that beauty is only skin deep and whilst we love to make others look and feel their best, glitziest and COOLEST at festivals and events; we’re also proud to lift up the women around us and show them off for the GIRL BOSSES they are!

We bring to you our latest campaign, ‘Girls Support Girls’. Over the next few months, we will be supporting some of the best charities, organisations and all round GIRL BOSSES that we could find! We’d like to use our awesome gang of girls (yes, that’s YOU) to make a bit of a difference in lives of women less fortunate than ourselves. We hope you love the organisations we’ve chosen as much as we do!

So first, let us present to you a charity very close to our hearts… Smartworks!

Smart Works was set up to help vulnerable women get back into the workplace by offering interview clothing and coaching for interviews. 

When you find a charity that lives by the motto “Get the clothes, get the confidence, get the job”, you know you’re onto a winner!

GYPSYSHRINE-HENDO29608.jpg

What Smart works does:

  • Offers a 2 hour session with a stylist and highly skilled interview coach

  • Helps women to get interview ready
