Yesterday I popped to Covent Garden to experience a new retail experience: the Marc Jacobs pop up tweet shop. Tweet shop? No, I wasn’t buying tweets – quite the opposite actually, as customers were able to ‘buy’ things by tweeting! Outside the pop up shop was a cute flower cart displaying massive daisies (well, white gerberas!) which cost just 1 tweet: Lucy and I couldn’t resist posing with a big bunch before heading into the...

So today I’m sharing something a bit different. Whilst at home last weekend I was lucky enough to be able to go along and help out on a photoshoot with 2 local photographers. With my sister (Sophie) and dog (Tia the Husky) as the models, Darina and Luke as the photographers and a quiet Fenland backdrop, it was great fun. I met Darina through a mutual friend (Lucy) at Uni but didn’t realise she was...

It might seem like I’m spending a lot of time in London, but it just happened to be a busy/lucky week! After visiting Lucy at the weekend I went back to visit fellow Lincoln GD grad Ben Willers – more about that in my next post! Ben has just moved to London after randomly viewing a flat… and moving in the next week! He’d never been to the Design Museum and I knew the ‘Hello...

Happy Triangle Friday! As a girl, I love my clothes, shoes and bags. I follow a few fashion blogs, but I wouldn’t say that I’m a total fashion follower. However, when triangles walk down the catwalk I can’t help but pay attention: I love the light bouncing off and reflections – it’s beautiful. Iris van Herpen‘s work is pure fashion – theatrical, impractical and amazing. She has brilliant attention to detail, here creating here what...

It’s been a while since my last J’adore post, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been inspired! I have been posting about my adventures at University more recently but going to try and get back into J’adore. Nikki Farquharson is a graphic designer-turned-illustrator who has a passion for shapes, patterns and colour (which I love too – check out my Pinterest board)! I first became aware of her work when a new nightclub opened in...

The ‘coin’ being design in this case! This is a bit late, but anyway…. Last Thursday I dipped my toes into the world of Fashion at the University of Westminster’s Graduate Fashion show. “Westminster? A bit random” you say? Well I wasn’t just randomly hanging around in London! Jack‘s sister, Emma Kingham, was one of the lucky ones picked from her class to have her collection walk the catwalk. I’ve never been to a fashion...

After debating whether or not to buy them… I did. I just thought ‘Why not?’…. you only live once! They arrived today – Eeek! Pantyhose! Haha! How Americano! Ooooh typographic texture… 🙂 Yayyyyy! They’re amazing! Can’t wait to strut my punctuation around Lincoln 🙂 Might go all out and put my Helvetica t-shirt on too!? Nn 🙂 Typographic overload! Watch these legs… 😛

American Apparel are my new best friends. First they brought us the Helvetica Tshirt…. …. and now, PUNCTUATION TIGHTS! Crazy! They just love us Graphic Designers… I first saw these on Autilia’s blog: Ahhh they’re so amazing! I am SO tempted to buy them, but at $36/ approx. £22 (and then add shipping on top of that) they turn out to be some pretty expensive tights… especially as I have a bit of a history...

This post is half a year late really! The Topshop make up range has been available since May 2010, but better late than never 🙂 I was just looking back over the blog of Vasare: I have been following her blog for a while now and she always has really interesting things to share so definitely worth a browse! Having a second look at the Topshop Make Up Packaging has just made me realise how...

Yes… I know! Nearly a month since I last posted, oh dear! I thought I would be posting loads this summer because I would be so bored but actually I have been quite busy! I have been doing quite a bit of volunteering and working a bit… aswell as catching up on TV lol At the charity shop I have been given the job of creative director… of window displays! 🙂 So far I have...

It’s been a whole month today since I posted – oh how I have missed blogging! (Not really… I’ve been doing my FMP journal online everyday, but it’s still not the same – I can’t really ramble on like I can here!) I thought I would put you out of your misery, as my last post asked a question: ‘What can you make with….. …A Morrison’s Value mixing bowl A metre of green ribbon An...

Here’s a question for you: What can you make with….. …A Morrison’s Value mixing bowl A metre of green ribbon An A1 sheet of green card An A4 sheet of red paper A black polystyrene pizza packaging tray A metre of white cotton material and A Poundland Solar Panel Garden Post Light? (which I got I.D.ed for because apparently it could be used as a weapon so you need to be 21 to buy it – so...

Thursday the 8th of April, my latest (impulse) buy arrived! I even had to answer the door in my dressing gown – poor postman haha The Helvetica Tshirt from American Apparel Online, Nn. It was such a beautiful day so I rolled the sleeves up and went outside to enjoy some rays… I’m too scared to cut it up just yet – going to practice on a cheap tshirt first to get the right shape 🙂 Watch...
