Where to find me

Wishlist | Oversized Tote

1. Asos 2. Rains

This seems like quite a sensible wish list, I mean as they go. I don't NEED anything new but I have had my eye on a bag like one of these for a while.
I travel quite a lot, not to anywhere glamorous or particular exciting I might add. My family are spread around all different parts of the UK. So I often find myself on short trips to various places. 
I have a small suitcase but for an overnight stay or weekend it seems a little excessive so I have been on the lookout for an alternative.

Im currently leaning towards the Rains bag or the leather tote from Urban Outfitters. Admittedly I do work for Urban so staff discount is a definite factor in my decision making. But regardless they are the two that I like the best, it just makes them a little more affordable to me.

I haven't posted in so long I really struggled to get my thoughts down in any semi coherent manor.
Hopefully with more regular posting I'll remember how to construct a sentence!

New Video | Everyday Makeup Routine

Im not sure why in the past I've always kept my blog and youtube very separate. It only occurred to me that I could start posting new videos to my blog as well. And in future have photography an and/or a post accompanying videos if I so wish.

Over four years of blogging and this is where I am at people! Making huge new discoveries every day! 

This is an updated makeup routine just showing what I do with my face most days.

Let me know what you think of my groundbreaking new idea of integrating blogging and youtube content!

So here it finally is, my final collection. The past week since I finished has been so busy with graduate fashion week and of course a few celebration that its taken me a really long time to get around to posting this. And honestly I was a bit scared to do it. It feels so personal like I'm exposing myself a little a bit but I had to get over myself and stop being stupid! Ive never been one to shout about my work or put it online but now that its all done expect a few more posts after this one as I do want to share it.

My degree was in textiles and there was no actual requirement to produce garments but that was always my aim.
I designed and wove the fabrics, had the fabric professionally dyed and finished, designed the garment shapes and worked with my very talented friend Horace Ng to create the patterns. Then only after all that they were sewn up into the seven garments you can see here. There are seven in total, more than I has originally planed but I had quite a lot of fabric to work with so it meant I could create more and it seemed a shame to waste it.
There are two pairs of trousers, two T-shirts, a dress and two bra tops in all in different fabrics.

And thanks for sticking around while I was absent, Im very excited to get back to blogging over the summer!
