art coursework :)

Hola :) �� I'm aware is a fairly random post, but I hadn't written anything on here for a while and I thought it might be interesting to share some of the photos I'm using for this term's coursework submission which I've decided to do on identity. To be totally honest there wasn't really a lot of thinking behind these photos, I just wanted to try and portray myself in a way which is a lot more stripped back than I would usually like to be. I find that in life, being vulnerable in any way at all makes me kind of uncomfortable - I always like to act as though things don't affect me like people might expect them to. In actual fact, though, I think there's definitely a kind of strength in vulnerability, and that exploring that raw aspect of myself could be really interesting, especially considering the theme of 'identity', so I wanted the photos to capture that. I don't really have a clue what I'm on about to be honest but I hope you all like the pictures anyway xxx

p.s.there is absolutely no symbolism behind the make up at all, we were slightly obsessing over a photo of Kate Moss for Mario Testino and we just felt like it :D 

p.p.s. major creds to Zarin for being my photographer �� ilyxoxox

We're back :)

HELLO EVERYONE! I'm back after over a months absence, and I'm so glad to finally be able to post something. It's been such a crazy month one way and another.. I hope you all had a great New Years, and a good start to the year. 

Lately I've been feeling super restless. I'd love to go travelling again this summer (most of you probably remember my holiday photos from last summer which was so fun omg) but when I was thinking about holiday plans I realised that even though I absolutely loved everywhere I went last year, I really want to go somewhere different. Having said that, I'd love to go back to New York, because it was just unbelievably amazing. But, money wise, I think I'm going to have to stay a little closer to home, which I really don't mind at all. There's such a variety of culture within Europe itself. If any of you have any suggestions of great holiday destinations which aren't too touristy or resort-y, let me know :) 

Love you all so much xxx

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium

So it's fair to say that our love for cats hasn't really been kept much of a secret. Because of this, we thought it was only fitting to head down to Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium in the heart of East London. The concept isn't something entirely new, it's basically a regular cafe (which serves really nice food by the way) with the addition of about ten cats just running about, and a hoard of cat toys and climbing frames all around the walls. It was quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen. For anyone visiting London, its would make such a nice stop-off - it would fit it really well with a trip around Old Spitalfields market and a wander round Brick Lane.

I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas

FYI: I can't play the piano to save my life - this was my rendition of 'Chopsticks'...

I firstly would like to apologies for my ridiculously long absence, and assure that I have not in the least forgotten about you. I know I say this a lot but I have been insanely busy these last few weeks at school, and by the end of the term I was sort of running on empty. I actually remember sitting next to one of my best friends in a maths class and fretting to her about how I was worried my bodily functions were going to shut down one by one. Thankfully for all of us, the Christmas break has come and maybe I can even fit in some blog posts (that'll make a nice change). Some new motivation is that I actually just bought a new camera, which is a tad snazzier than the old faithful. I'm still very much getting to grips with it but you should (fingers crossed) be noticing an increase in photo quality soon. Merry Christmas all you wonderful people, have a good one xxx
