The Moon Child X Betsy Johnson AKA Photoshop Ugly

This Summer The Moon Child is catching up with our fave boss gals in the creative industry and the second in our series is an interview with the swaggy fire ball herself... BETSY JOHNSON!!!

We have loved Betsy ever since she came into our lives right at the beginning of our journey. We had just made an Instagram for our Depop shop (the platform The Moon Child originated on) and Betsy fell in love with our Sun and Moon candles... we got chatting and now she is one of our fave ever moon children she has done so much for us and we love her xxxxx

anyway enough of the soppyness... LETS GET ON WITH IT!

How would you describe yourself and your personal style?

Im still sort of figuring out myself, aren't we all! But id say I am a social creature, I love people especially people who just get 'it'; in regards to my style id say I'm a tomboy, with a guilty pleasure for all things 90s swagathon. 

What inspired you to start blogging // vlogging?

I was pushed into blogging after a few people recommend I give it ago around April 2015 and its the best thing I've ever done, its opened so many doors to so many opportunities and most of all friendships! Its just a good way to explore your creativity and personal style aswell as connecting with people which in most cases you wouldn't be acquainted with.
What is the story behind choosing the name “Photoshop Ugly” behind your channel?
When I started my blog, I wanted a cool name, because Betsey Johnson is a famous designer so I couldn't really use it to brand myself. Ive always been quite anti photoshopping and a true believer that beauty comes from within you and natural beauty is always the purest, so the name popped into mind!

How would you describe the content of your channel?
Im still sort of finding my feet with youtube, I've only been making content the past 6-7 months, but so far I'm really enjoying creating after movies for all my travel excursions; lookbooks and advice videos. I just really love recording memories and feelings and being able to recreate an experience in a video that myself and whoever I shared them with can look back on; thats so amazing.
What can we expect from Photoshop Ugly in the near future?
A lot more youtube content! I am all kitted out and got a lot more travel adventures and video ideas so more content will be up on there pretty much weekly!! Im finding youtube a lot more fun than blogging!

Anyyy exciting plans throughout the Summer?
Well I've been all over the place so far! But I have a few more festivals lined up and hopefully another trip to Asia in September but we will see how it rolls out. 

Whats yo favourite item from The Moon Child collection?
I just love all the glitterrrrrrrr! It was put to good use at hideout and will be seeing a lot more festivals over the summer! 

AAAANNDDD FINALLY!! What advice would you give to somebody starting out as a blogger // vlogger?? 
Don't expect everything to come at once. Be patience and create content you are passionate about and believe in, no matter how many likes it gets. Not everyone is going to like you, your style or your opinions, but some people will, don't take it to heart. 


Betsy has just released her clothing label named Freckled Ace << (click that link to be blown away) It is full of just badass garments that make you feel empowered. She has taken the world by storm with her no bullshit attitude to social media and she has inspired so many people, including us.

Love u Betsy xxx

The Moon Child takes Boomtown Fair

In August The Moon Child is hittin up Boomtown Fair for a weekend of glitter fuelled fun, music and madness.

For all of y'all wondering what Boomtown is like, imagine dreaming about this village in the middle of no where that brings you all you have ever looked for in a party. There is something for everyone! You have City districts which basically gives so much choice! The attention to detail is incredible too... you will just be blown away by all of the cool things you come across when walking through the area.

You can get diggy down to some bassline, garage, DnB and so much more in Sector 6 with the likes of Ms. Dynamite, TQD and So Solid Crew playing...

If you're into more of the wikid wikid jungle then Lion's Den is bringing you Congo Natty n crew this year as well as veterans of dub, reggae and ska such as Madness, Fat Freddy's Drop and the King of Reggae's son himself... Damian Marley.

If u wanna throw some shapes to tech n house then VAMOS is the place to be... Ya got Jackmaster ( <3 ) playing there as well as ya gal B. Traits, Skream, Mele and more.

We also highly recommend  Tribe of Frog but we can't really describe it... you just need to experience it...

For more info on the acts pls click HERE

US personally? We love a bitta everything, so if you see us ravin at any point please come and say hello! We're all about the good vibes!!!

To get a bit more of a feel for the festival check out their official after video from 2015 HERE

If ur still reading this (thanks) then guess what? We've got some gifties to give out to you so you can rave out THE MOON CHILD style whilst you're there! We also have a competition on the way so you can look BOMB ASS whilst rocking around the festival so keep ya eyes peeled!!!

Glastonbury Festival 2016

So this year The Moon Child was lucky enough to attend GLASTONBURY!!!
And wow... it did not disappoint. And yes... It was frikkkeeen muddy - but is a festival really a festival with no mud?

The best thing about Glastonbury (for us) was yes obviously the music but also the attention to detail! The decor not only of the stages but all over the site there was beautifully set up areas to chill in and explore.

Aaaaand the music! OMG... The variety! You don't even realise it when you watch it on the TV but there is so much to choose from! Yes... the Pyramid Stage was phenomenal when we went to see the likes of Madness and Skepta but you can literally find anything you're into!

If you have followed The Moon Child for a while, you probably know that we like our festies and we love our music. We can have a dance to anything really... DnB, Dubstep, Garage, Dub, House, Techno, Reggae... and we found all of that at Glastonbury!

We saw the likes of Mungo's Hi-Fi, Kiko Bun, Ms Dynamite, Protoje, LEVELZ, Gentlemen's Dub Club, Jake Bugg, Mike Skinner... so many more!!!

We took our 35mm camera with us - here are a few of the highlights from our Glastonbury experience:
