EXCITING EXCITING!!

Snows back again and the hopes of a holiday are near! Because soon it is Easter (hmm any excuse for some chocolate)

So what do I have to tell you now?? Well congratulations to my three friends who have found new jobs one is Helen Law and she is going solo into the wedding stationary business- GOOD LUCK! Charlotte who has landed her first teaching job – so proud : ) And the other who has found his dream teaching job- WELL DONE!

Also I have passed my assignment at the master level so I am really happy about that! School is going great at the moment but I have a scary feeling it is going to get very hectic after Easter… Watch this space. On the other hand have not had much luck with jobs just yet, so fingers crossed please readers! 

Soooo as you know I love my food, lets not pretend I don’t! (Even though I have been busting my ass in the gym and lost half a stone 🙂 happy days)

Here are some designer Easter eggs you may like to purchase…

Happy Blogging and reading : ) xox

How was everyones diamond jubilee weekend? Who had street party? In the rain? Hahahahaha Who stayed in and watched everything on T.V? LOL! For the bank holiday I went down south to spend time with family. We had a nice time together we watched the boat display on T.V ate, drank, laughed good times. Then I came back to seven straight days of work which equalled to me being poopedout.com! Shout out to my best friend Sophie who trekked it home to see me and our other best friend Sab!

Hello, been rushed off my little size 3 feet!

School had gotten very interesting lately. We have finished our budvases and now with one group I am cooking, savoury rice and bread have been made so far. With the other two groups we have started a new project kites. Where we are researching and learning how to follow understand trends and target markets.

Also in the fabulous world of design I have started to get my thinking cap on for this project which begins in June and I have plenty of ideas and things to bring to the table : )

I follow a lot of blogs and receive millions of newsletters from various publications and here some bits I have found über cool…

Have a fantastic bank holiday weekend, and enjoy the Queens jubilee if you are doing anything to mark the occasion! xxx

The Metrocard Project by Melanie Chernock stemmed from a class assignment to “create a deck of cards”. She did not want to do something expected so she immediately started to think of all the different types of cards there are. The concept of redesigning the Metrocard felt natural to her – “I love the idea of taking something iconic and putting my own twist on it.” Creating the cards was an experimental process for Melanie. She had to make around 100 cards to get 25 good ones.

Even though the current Metrocard design has been around for years, it could use a little updating. The card itself gets so much exposure and should be something thoughtfully designed. The purpose of the project is to show the many ways there are to design a better Metrocard and to promote better design within the city.

The French based couple designers, François Alary and Ophelie Klere make chic goth wear in a strict black and white palette. After the success of their label Dévastée, they just launched Apres la Mort, a micro unisex collection described as dark and morbid, the collection is very strong !

Pantone release images of new colours as insperation for future trends.

Valentines Day…

It takes a lot for me to add a second title in my posts, so to all you valentines day lovers that ones for you : )

personally Im not into the whole valentines day thing, it’s a nice gesture BUT its a waste of money no? Or maybe I am super cynical… Hmm a thought to ponder.

Thought about it and no I am not cynical I am lovely and if you want to share your affections  that’s up to you. Plus I have done some loving designs that could be used as card designs, not just for the love of your life but for your best friend, your brother / sister.

Hope you like them I used water colours, black pen and ink. I wanted to get super media crazy but I didn’t want the designs to turn out messy. Enjoy! (Feel free to email onto loved ones) Happy Valentines Day Readers : ) xxx

P.S this first pic is of some Roses, I didn’t have a vase so took some inspiration from a book I blogged about last year (contemporary flower arrangements)
