I always wondered when I would start caring about cushions, throws and matching plates. Well guys, I think I’m finally there. I thought it came with age but actually I guess it just comes with having your own space… which is usually linked to being a bit older. Ok, enough of going around in circles. After 2 years of renting a room in a shared house, Jack & I finally moved into our own flat in...

I’ve had this post saved in my drafts for ages (you can tell because look, it’s the old-style vsco screenshots!) but found myself too caught up in #The100DayProject to finish it. Now that I’ve posted all 100 days and #100DaysofGraphique is done and dusted, I thought it was time to get this one ticked off my never-ending to-do list. One step at a time, hey? You might have seen this kind of post from other...

AND BREATHE. #100DaysofGraphique is complete! High five Some days I would think to myself; ‘This is hard, so why am I doing this?’ and this smug feeling is definitely the answer. 100 posts and 12,030 likes later (yes I just went through all 100 photos and added them all up) the project is finished! It’s a mix of emotions; pride, relief and sadness. Sure, I’m really proud of finishing again but let me tell you...

…. you can pick all of the pieces that you want, but you never know how it’s going to turn out! The other week Laura from Cardboard Cities asked twitter for collage ‘volunteers’. Sometimes creatives just need something fun to work on, and being a big fan of Laura’s work, I sent my photo over faster than you can say collage! As expected, I love what she did with my face: Blue hair… what do...

Recent political events in the UK have been interesting to say the least. Regardless which side of the fence you sit on, what we have seen is people being passionate about their beliefs, and we’ve been reminded what can happen when people stand up for what they believe in. Rebellion, protest and fighting for the freedom of speech; all things associated with the Punk movement of the 70s. Coincidentally on Friday night I saw Punk...

74 days ago I began my second year of #The100DayProject, choosing to attempt #100DaysofGraphique after a pretty successful #100DaysofTriangles project in 2015. I would say that if you follow me on Instagram you would definitely remember, but with the algorithm who knows if I show up in your feed anymore!? But anyway, although I’ve not really been shouting about it and giving you guys regular updates on my blog (last year I did weekly round ups!)...

You know me: I’m always galavanting around London. When you live in London you quickly realise that there is more to shopping than Oxford Street – London has so much more to offer! I probably know East the best, but I’m not an area snob and am keen to explore as much as I can. Just call me a culture sponge! The other week I found myself south of the river in Peckham for the opening...

That’s right folks, Designed in London: the Podcast is BACK! It feels like its been forever since we recorded the first episode on 3rd year & graduation, when in reality it was just over a month ago. But anyway, we headed to the South Bank to record our latest episode to discuss… So what are we talking about in Episode 2? Well there’s only one way to find out – give it a listen! Alongside...

Papergang from Ohh Deer is the latest craze: a subscription of stationery to feed your habit every month! Over the past 3 months I have been enjoying the novelty of stationery being delivered to my door and have filmed a Youtube video or three of the unboxing process – and if you haven’t watched them, WHY aren’t you subscribed to my Youtube channel!? There are a few other creative bloggers who are also making unboxing videos...

Love travelling but hate being away from home? I’m sure you’ll have heard about airbnb, but have you stayed in one yet? This weekend (16th-19th June) airbnb are opening the door on one of the beautiful London apartments to showcase the airbnb experience. What’s it like being a guest in someone else’s home? Well, let’s find out: Firstly, what an amazing front door. I’ve walked past this house so many times before and never knew it...

And the headline would read: Italy comes to London, AGAIN. Last night I was kindly invited to the launch of the latest Fedrigoni exhibition – Made in Italy: Bodoni. (Last year’s exhibition Made In Italy was a more general celebration of Italian Graphic Design) Celebrating (you guessed it) Bodoni the typeface, the guys at SEA design & Fedrigoni have collated a number of beautiful and very special pieces of design for display in the heart...

I’ve been putting off writing this post for almost 3 weeks now, but I felt like I couldn’t really post anything else until I got this one out of the way. So here goes nothing… Leaving a job is never easy, but it’s a lot scarier and stressful when it’s not your choice to leave. A week after I moved into my new flat, I was made redundant. 46/💯 Look up – you have your...

How did you spend last Friday night? Pints at the pub? Latest film at the cinema? Going back to University…? Yep, it’s that time of year again: Degree Show time! As per every year, I get to Kings Cross and Lincoln Alumni seem to be everywhere – we always manage to book the same train without coordinating. Show Sixteen. SIXTEEN!? I can’t believe it’s been 3 years (exactly today) since my degree show (I literally start...

If you’ve ever visited London then you’ll be pretty familiar with the London Transport design, be it through buses, underground, overground or Boris bikes. Without question, it is iconic around the world and I have to say that from a design perspective I think it is pretty nice looking. It’s bold, simple, communicates well and it works for millions of people every day. That’s really amazing design – when it looks good AND works. Imagine if...

It’s not often that I find myself at press events really, but with a new flat to deck out I decided to hop west and visit Olympia in Kensington for Pulse London, a 3 day show for all things lifestyle, home ware and gifting. Was it worth travelling like 20 stops on the tube? Let me tell/show you: The main reason I had travelled across half of London, was for one of the discussion panels...
