Allen Jones @ The RA

Allen Jones @ The RA

On Friday evening I headed to the Royal Academy of Arts with Nadia, Lucy and Ellie for the Bloggers evening. The Allen Jones RA exhibition opened last week and after seeing the bronze Kate Moss image everywhere I was interested to see the rest of Jones’ work. After walking up the RA’s grand staircase, we were...
Paint & Patterns

Paint & Patterns

I haven’t really had the opportunity to get my hands messy for a while so when the chance to get pattern-y with paints popped up I was pretty excited. Direct Blinds sent me a little creative kit to take part in #Makemeadesigner so I chose watercolour as my weapon of art – I just love...
Keep Kemistry Alive

Keep Kemistry Alive

Monday night I felt quite restless and couldn’t sleep. But at 11.29pm I felt much better – I became a backer of Kemistry Gallery’s ‘Keep Kemistry Alive’ kickstarter campaign. So what is Kemistry Gallery and what’s happening to it? Kemistry is a small independent gallery that has been exhibiting cutting edge talent and legendary graphic designers...

#BeBold – UK Blog Awards 2015

Be bold? I’d have to be pretty bold to enter and ask you to vote for me in the 2015 UK Blog Awards after winning in 2014, right? I love being bold…or italic, but never regular (beautiful letterpress print by Cabaret Typographie)… Yes, my Young Persons Blog Award is still pride of place in my room...
EMA-zing - Galavanting in Glasgow

EMA-zing – Galavanting in Glasgow

I seem to have the travelling bug at the moment – I only went to Amsterdam the other week. Well, Scotland has been on my list for a little while now – scenic views, tartan and of course, that lovely accent, so when the opportunity to go to Glasgow for the weekend came about, I...

Small Publishers Fair @ Conway Hall, Holborn

After work this evening Jo & I popped into Conway Hall in Holborn for the Small Publishers Fair. Barrie and Philippa (our tutors from Lincoln Uni) a.k.a The Caseroom Press had a stall with some of their lovely work and of course, we wanted to show our support: ‘To thine own self be true.’ –...
Food & Fonts: DF Mexico @ Old Truman Brewery

Food & Fonts: DF Mexico @ Old Truman Brewery

I’m quite ashamed to admit that until I went to University in 2010 I had never eaten a Mexican dish. I know, what a sheltered life I lived, but now Mexican is part of my weekly diet: burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, quesadillas, nachos, spicy rice – I love them all! So when I visited Kinetica Art Fair...
Amsterdaaam

Amsterdaaam

After a dam-packed weekend, I’m back on British soil and ready to reflect on my Dutch adventure. A short city break from early Friday morning to late Sunday night, it was a coffee fuelled trip to Amsterdam with my housemates Nadia, Lucy and Ellie. You know me, I love to explore and learn new things...
In it to win it

In it to win it

So talk about last minute, but I’ve been meaning to write a post about why bloggers should enter blog awards. TODAY nomination for the UK Blog Awards 2015 closes at midnight, and you should enter! Things that might be in your head right now: My blog doesn’t deserve an award. Awards are only for ‘big bloggers’....
From Q to M: Barrie Tullett @ St Bride

From Q to M: Barrie Tullett @ St Bride

When I was in my 2nd year at University there was a rumour (on the grapevine) that my tutor, Barrie Tullett, was going to be writing a book. Well 2 years later and I was attending a talk about the rumoured book – it’s real! Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology is a labour of love....
#ThankYouStranger

#ThankYouStranger

When I heard about the Anthony Nolan* ‘Kindest of Stranger’ campaign I instantly loved the idea. Basically the idea is to spread love by talking about good deeds – either something you’ve done for a stranger or a stranger has done for you – watch the Anthony Nolan video with some inspiring stories here. Going...
