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

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

My little Paris story

Well Where do i begin …. The coach trip was terrible and my experience with the Euro tunnel wasnt the most glamorous way to travel but it got us there and seeing that sun on the other side made me smile.

The weather was lovely But the hotel was basic …(don’t stay in an Ibis hotel if you go there … that’s all im saying,) but yes our first evening me and the other half went for a walk round and i felt so free… just strolling round Paris …yh i nearly got run over couple times but it was so refreshing to be somewhere new !

Everyone has told me before paris was dirty … well they obviously don’t realise there in Birmingham ! because i thought it was so beautiful the architecture of the apartments above all the bistros and bars are stunning with there balconies and french window shutters .. i was sold … i will live there one day !

But yes we went and saw the Effiel Tower and went down by the river and on the evening was taken to the latin quarter which was full of places to eat.. it took us ages to find somewhere but when we did it was worth it ! Food amazing i tipped quite a lot too . I think the only time i moaned was in the hotel in the morning for breakfast there was no tea left ! i know its so typically English but i always start the morning with a cuppa tea !

We did go to a great bistro where i had a black tea and it was lovely … only in Paris though soon as i got home i was like ” stick the kettle on babes and i want milk please !!”

The whole time i was constantly sidetracked by little gift shops even though most of them was the same i loved the trinkets ! Much to my boyfriends annoyance who was on a hunt for Colette ( Frances Selfridge’s ) the one shop he wanted to go to ! but seems as we was in the most “romantic city in the world ” i bit my tongue and even though we got lost , getting lost in somewhere you have never been like Paris is a great adventure.

One of the most beautiful sites i seen was a Just married couple sitting at a bistro i couldn’t tell you where because we were lost but it made me stand still and just stare , she was still in her wedding dress and it was an amazing dress so beautiful and strange at the same time … because no one batted an eyelid ?? Like it was normal ? maybe it was a photo shoot or something i dont know but another thing that surprised me was the children … they all looked they were born To model like given a contract for Gap when they left the hospital ??.. the little boys where so handsome and the girls where such little ladies and you saw no groups of kids or trouble makers it was like everyone just knew how to be civilised such a change from the UK ! .Another thing was everyone was on a cute bicycle or scooter!

I must admit the people there gave me some strange looks maybe its how i dressed ? a man even scared me to death , giving me a look as if i was a ghost and then chanting something !! very strange ??? But a waitress did compliment me on my Vivienne Westwood boots which made me smile .

This a view from the Tour Montparnasse the tallest building in paris and the perfect photo opportunity ! Unless your camera’s dead …. yes it happened typical ! so yes this is an iPhone picture but the views with my own eyes where amazing withe the telescope i swear i could see people s curtains in their cute apartments !

And yes we did eventually find Colette ! on our last day we were dropped into the north of Paris, which from what a tour guide told us is very Parisian and is known for its light-fingered thieves and tricksters. We was given an hour untill we returned to the coach for the journey home and rather than visit to the Sacre- Coeur unlike everyone else we took a quick snap and went running Past the Moulin Rouge in search of a cab to head for Colette !!

And it was an amazing store the boyfriend got his wish and some new trainers and i got some trinkets for the new apartment , we had a quick stop at Marc Jacobs and a cute french supermarket to pick up some snacks . Then began the race to get back to the coach before we was left stranded with no cases.. ( not that i would have minded …) And that’s when the romance ended the cab dropped us at the top of the Sacre- Coeur and its a long stair case down filled with pick pockets trying to sell you key rings or tie string round your finger telling you your beautiful … Suddenly i was mobbed ( slight exaggeration but there was loads of them ) my boyfriend was way ahead and my arms were filled with bags …and yes i admit i hit a gypsy lady with them as she tried to sell me something or tell me my future ! The boyfriend stepped in but i have still never rushed so much in my life only for the coach to be waiting for us, And then the long journey back home began.

But other than that … it was an amazing trip ! and we’ve started planning our next visit in April this time by plane and a nice hotel… you learn from experiences and this was a great one at that !!! All i can say that Paris is a beautiful , dignified, and romantic city and i cant wait to go back !

See you next year Paris

Paris !!!

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.

But even more beautiful is the guys own personal work Aaron Feaver, a photographer living in Los Angeles his work based on people and polaroids are my favourite .  Im in love with the design of the web page  too , the scroll feature to view these beautiful large images makes it so much easier to browse the collection of work , im currently designing my own website and to say the least this site is my main inspiration ….
