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
How i feel about my work right now …. getting there slowly but surely.
Ive let my hair down recently for my friends birthday themed on the brilliant Channel 4 documentry Big fat Gypsy wedding …. with my friend Emmas 23rd Big fat gypsy birthday .
First a meal at zizis with the lovely home made barbie (with big gypsy dress) Birthday cake made by Remini.
Me and the birthday girl Emma
Remini and me with our gypsy belts which you could hear ringing down the street,
Curling wands , glitter and the coin belts and bright dresses was the only thing gypsy really apart from abit of podium dancing .
The dress is from Zara. I love it
The night was great and the cake was definitely as sweet as it looks !

(My favourite necklace in my jewellery box right now is this little typewriter from topshop )
As you can see my flowers have died im not just lazy and not thrown them away they are there for a reason one so my boyfriend can see how ugly they are and go and buy me some new ones … ( this didnt work … he didnt buy me any dam it )
And the other as im working on a project at the moment n photographed them .

Bonjour … i have been back from the Lovely Paris now for a week and started back at work , i would of posted as soon as i gt back but was ill ,,,( due to coming back to shitty English weather !! )
Well how was it ? …. erm Amazing wouldn’t even some it up ! i loved it i think one day i may call it my home , once i learn French that is and hopefully after having a taste of what a lovely city it is i will try and learn fast.
This trip made me realise how narrow minded i had been towards learning another language , my excuse all these years is presuming everyone speaks English right ? erm no everyone told me that everyone speaks English in Paris ! well they dont and it was ignorant for me to expect them too ( i know this ), French is such a beautiful language and im kicking my self for throwing the chance away at school to learn it !
Well here’s some photos …The Eiffel Tower
And here is a picture of me that the other half took
This was on our last day to a visit to the Sacre- Coeur
And on the lovely tour bus driving past the Moulin Rouge !
(taken with a 35mm Yashica film camera )
We went on a bank holiday weekend and everything was closed on sunday : ( so any shopping was done on the last day … ( got some goodies to show you ) but the food , sights and company was perfect .
Paris made my summer this year.
