Online shopping….

Im a huge fan of online shopping, you could say it was a slight addiction of mine one of these sites , a credit card a cuppa tea and a cinnamon swirl and im all set to shop !

Online shopping is a lot easier than walking round window shopping because you haven’t been paid yet , or when you do get paid the thing you wanted is sold out and your hunting for that last size 8 ! (that i never find …hello size 18 ? )

Apart from the great but usual ASOS, Topshop and Urban outfitters which are easy accesible to me  i have been on the hunt for other shops and one of my friends allways comes to me for “new” online shops, I’ve found so here we go :

Bitching and Junkfood

Not only does the online store  remake vintage garments into something edgy and exciting ( i have the bitchy cross shorts love them !) they have a selection of vintage pieces as well as a weird but wonderful accessories line of head dresses, bracelets and ear cuffs not for the faint hearted mind ! You can find the amazing pieces online at bitching and junk food or urbanoutfitters.com

 

So wanted these shorts !!! sold out : (

NastyGal

One of my favourite shops but it breaks my heart when i see the custom fees !! I do own a beautiful top from here though black knit and all  shredded at the back  ! Any how not only do i love the styling,  models, photographs and website layout there stock is to die for !

I dont know who the model is but she my favourite she has been on asos and catalogs anyone no her name ????

So much choice from Jeffery Campbell shoes , vintage beauties and new brands you can lose hours just browsing !!!

Free People

I havnt oreded anything from this online store yet based in Philadelphia
as i have never finished looking at everything , there is just so much to see and there jewellery and shoes are amazing ! If your after something laid-back and unique its Definitely worth a look !

UNIF

Dont no much about the brand apart from its based in California and thier video look book is making me want to move there asap  ! but it does feature on NastyGal and again more great images !

Well theres just a few online shops to drool at  and just to let you know im setting up my own  : )

Its only through ebay as im not that technical with the whole website designing ! ive got a bunch of old beauties and vintage pieces that need to be cleared out once ive photographed them ill post the link  !

Happy shopping !

My Book.

Heres just a sneak preview of my book im working on :

It holds a series of photographs ive taken of nostalgic gifts, cards  and objects that hold  significant memory of my loved ones these alongside text and old photographs create the book.

Together it is an alliterative family album to not only reflect on the past but to bring forth the truth of the relationships that have changed with the passing of time.

The book should be printed and finished by the end of the week so ill post it up , alongside this work is a small film that Im currently working on.

So much to do ! x

Happy Valentines day

(Photo from my current work )

Valentines day is one of my favourite holidays and this year was even better than last . We celebrated yesturday as my boyfriend had work today and apart from the late taxi and awful rain it was a lovely evening.

We went to The Italian restaurant  Strada in Birmingham by the ICC  we allways walk past it on the way to my boyfriends house and for once i didnt have pasta …( Very rare for me ) i was adventurous and had chicken . : )

The food and service was really good but due to us running late we couldnt squeeze in desert which was a shame but we had seats booked at the Electric cinema to watch the strange yet beautiful Never let me go .( which i will mention in a different post )

I hand made my gift for my boyfriend this year which was two cusions with our intials on S and K .

All hand stiched and you can tell as Im not the best at sewing, but hey it was made with love …. theres ” i love u ” stitched on the K cusion on the back .

I recieved some beautiful flowers and L’ Artisan chocolates which are some of the best chocolates ive ever tasted !

Another great valentines day , i even got sent some love hearts sweets from O2 in the post saying happy valentines …..

Im hoping next year to be in our own home ( with those cushions sitting on the couch ! ) and my boyfriend to give me a little pug puppy with a red ribbon round his neck !

Yes im dropping hints for next year allready ! ha

Happy Valentines

Black Swan ….

I saw the film the other week and havnt had the time to post about it …. and to say the least i thought it was brilliantly done and kept me on my seat and jumping off it  sometimes …

Natalie Portmans and Mila Kunis performance was surprising i havnt really watched many films they’ve acted on .

With most films i see i try to predict the ending and if you sitting next me like my unfortunate boyfriend you will hear my eloborate predictions aswell as me jumping an gasping at the scary bits.

One of my favourite parts was when Natalie Portman was dancing and transformed into the swan leaving the shadow of the black swan on the wall while to the audience she was a normal dancer.

Some of the shots have inspired my own film im working on (its no where near as amazing … !! ) by making it more sinister and gripping.

Heres the trailer …. ill definitely be getting it on dvd .

A late merry christmas a Happy new year !

Im writing in pain ( exstream back ache )and disgust on why it took me so long to blog mainly as time went to quick both christmas and new year is a blur it feels like i got a weekend off work and thats it…

All though i did get most of my christmas presents apart from the Jeffery Campbell boots or the dior compact ….. sold out  story of my life  so far this year…

My christmas day was presents with the kids, lots of food and monopoly , and boxing day i spent the evening visiting the rest of my family in birmingham and going to the lovely italian  restaurant Piccolinos with the other half  and the place is now my favourite restaurant !!! and then spent the eveining opening my loveley presents !!

Lost in London..

London ….ive been wanting to go for ages and whena trip came up at uni i jumped at the chance…Getting up at 5:30 am was not great though we went to the tate modern and the national portrait gallery but i will post about that sepretly as there is so many pictures to share…

So i got to go to Harrods and was very impressed with the window displays and then went to camden market , i would love to say i got to brick lane… but i never seems as people in london cant give directions ? So we got lost and my friend got half his body trapped in the tube (You would have had to been there bless him it was comical )… then we got the tube and a taxi to find the Marc Jacobs store which took forever but in the end brought some goodies and treated my self in camden market..: )

The bird is chippy… he likes noodles  : )

Theres me in my fur hat keeping warm in camden market… There was so much more to see and buy … I cant wait to go back and maybe then i will find brick lane !!

I will post the beautiful art works up soon and my beauties i purchased  but untill then sleep is needed last week of uni and i have one more piece of work to hand in !

Goodnight ! x
