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.
Vintage vest cow Birmingham, leopard print earrings topshop. Casio watch Ebay
Oh how the winter days are slowly fading away and i am one that cannot wait for the day to leave my house with out a jacket !! Heres a few of my high street and internet favourites that Ive been window shopping in .
Asos has some great spring/summer clothes and they always style the models well and student discount at 20% is even better.
Nasty Gal i adore this shop yet the shipping cripples me some great looks to get some inspiration from though.
Urban Outfitters a few summer pieces mainly casual that you can team with shorts instore is better that the website.
Aldo …. the shop that allways has a size 3 left ! and i can see these shoes lasting me all summer and maybe in my wardrobe by the end of the week !
And last but never least Topshop florals, silk and fringed im loving it all ! My empty purse is the reason Ive been avoiding the store in my town the last couple of weeks as the window shopping becomes depressing when you see beautiful bikinis and tiny dresses hitting the shelves and im still wearing a cardigan and a leather jacket to go out the house !
But ill bide my time till the student money rolls in and i can treat my self and hopefully the sun will keep on shining and warming up!

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

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 .

It was time for a change and as my hairs growing but not as fast as i would like it too.. so with some help from my lovely hair dressers who provided me with some highlights and a new fringe and my amazing friend remini who is the best at hair extensions … made me look like a modern day rapunzel !
And i love it , ive been every colour under the sun and thought about going red like i did last year with the big craze so far with Rihanna and Cheryl Cole but 3 of my beautiful friends are now rocking it !
So needed something different !
My new dreamer camera Urban outfitters .Paris studs … my lovely present from a friend and my red bandanna from a vintage store that i got for a £1 !
Cant wait to get my crimpers and rollers in it ive also got a wand which all of my friends can use but me ??…when i attempted i burnt my neck !! so future note don’t put on full temperature and watch tv at the same time !
