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

Im really sorry for being such a shit blogger part of it is my fault for being so busy and the rest is some very sad circumstances…….
Were do i start …erm well 1st of all my lovely house became less lovely … to the point where i was hardly even in it i could go into details but its a long story and if you know me well enough you would have heard me complain countless times….. other than that i have some really bad news that has effected the blog quite significantly my beautiful amazing iMac apple computer was stolen for legal reasons i wont go into it but wow it has left a big empty space on my desktop and in my heart !!! lol it sounds sad but my whole life was on that computer countless pictures of my family, videos of my siblings, personal information, bookmarks of amazing artists..blogs and shops and most importantly priceless amount of beautiful future portfolio work of my photography !!!!
It’s just what i needed after an amazingly shit 2009 ….. being broke, failing my course, the worst summer ever, then uni losing my re submission work then nearly not even being able to go back to uni ……
Apart from being hit by a car it was the “best” worst ending to the ultimate shitest year in my life it was 2006 all over again …. even though now i look back at 2006 as a year i learnt so many lessons ( mostly about men … or should i say boys ?) i suppose next year i will look back at 2009 and realise that i learnt alot about the choices i make and the company i keep !!!
Well apart from all this horrible bad news i had i still have my ideas and my dreams so i can continue to make even more brilliant work….. i have my health and i have my family and friends and all i can say is when bad things like this happen it shows you who are your real friends !!!!
I hope everyone else had an amazing christmas mine was okay time of work was the best thing ever and seeing the little ones open their presents….. i got some Vivienne Westwood boots and jewelry off kevin and a necklace off anna all of it i love very much and then make up and bath stuff which is always lovely …..
No matter what happens keep smiling : )
love little tortoise x
