DIY Mermaid



I got these leggings for my Christmas and then decided that I needed something to wear with them. Yesterday I made this t-shirt so that I go out dressed like a mermaid all the time - excellent plan!

Leggings_Black Milk, shoes_JC and I made the t-shirt.

Back to Blogging





Well hello there! Hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas. More apologies for being a terrible blogger, but I intend to start doing more frequent outfit posts again. Got some lovely new clothes for Christmas that need a wee show and tell.

Sistine Chapel





Today my blog hit a big ol' number of views. So, I want to thank everyone who follows my blog and sticks with me even when I'm not blogging very often!! I appreciate every single view, comment and follower!
This is the next in my series of art/styling photos. It is a re-working of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.

The Scream



I showed you my interpretation of The Two Fridas, this is my version of The Scream. Hiliory is wearing a dress with the scream painting printed on it, then the poncho has a poem written on it which is hand painted on the frame of the original Scream painting.

Chained to the kitchen sink



More old photos, this time of a chain in a sink. Brilliant. I do love taking photos.

Bad Photos



These are more old photos that I completely forgot about because I thought that they were bad photos. I think that bad photos could be my new favourites.

Self Portraits






I take thousands of photos and I will often disregard photos because they are out of focus, are taken at the wrong angle or they look funny. 
These are photos I took when I was playing around with my new camera lens back in August, that I just rediscovered tonight. After a little bit of editing, I think that they make quite a nice, accidental set of self portraits.

The Two Fridas




The Two Fridas is a painting by Frida Kahol. I am working on a project where I take a painting and re-create it in a modern style. These is a couple of photos that I've been working on. 






Tourists = Money







I NEED to get back into blogging.
At the moment I am constantly running between my job and uni work and it has left me feeling a little uninspired. This has left me with limited things to blog about but I promise I'm going start blogging again (even if it's just photos I'm taking for uni).
I'm currently doing a project called 'Tourists = Money' which is combing fashion and tacky tourism. The project is still in it's initial stages but today we did a mini photo shoot to consolidate our ideas and this is the outcome. Hope you like them.

Beetlejuice


It's one of my favourite times of the year. You can go out wearing anything and it's acceptable. Last night I went out dressed as Beetlejuice which was great fun. Unfortunately I still had face paint in my hair when I got to work... Tricky...

It's never too early..


Every year my family have a fake Christmas where we have Christmas dinner and take a photo we will use on our family Christmas card. Today was that day. 

Usually I'm sad when I see the Christmas decorations in shops in October because it is a sign that it is going to get darker and colder. However, this year I am embracing the festivities already because it has been such a horrible summer so we are not really losing anything, we just have something to look forward to. 

If you've never had a fake Christmas before, I encourage you to have one. They are hilarious and much more fun that the real thing.

90s Party




I apologise for not having done an outfit post in ages. I'm currently juggling work and uni and finding it hard to fit everything in. However, I did have time to go to a 90s party and this is what I wore. Shiny leggings, double denim, butterfly clips and added game boy colour - perfect.

Highland Safari






For my dad's birthday we got him a highland safari experience which we went on yesterday. It was a fantastic day, we had a 4x4 off road driving lesson and then drove around the mountains looking at wild highland animals. Would recommend this day out to anybody!

London Street Art




When I left art college many moons ago, I completely stopped drawing and painting. Since being back at uni we have had to start drawing again. This is something I drew today, it is supposed to look like graffiti/street art that is inspired by London. For my first attempt I don't think it's too bad but I'd love to know what you think!

Back at Uni





Today at uni...




Head in the clouds





I don't spend much time looking at the ground. Once in a while it is interesting to do though. There is just so much you don't see with your head in the clouds.
