CRAVINGS!

I'm having such bad shopping withdrawals!
Since being in London over summer and earlier September and having spent sooooo much!
I've been lying low and avoiding the shops in order to save a few pennies!

But now I'm majorly craving a splurge!
There are so many things popping up that I want...

at this rate, at least I'll have a lot to put on my Christmas list!

Heres just a few bits and bobs that have caught my eye!

ZARA

HAIR MARE


I really want one of these hair rings from H&M.
Need a trip to London pronto!


I also loved the hair at Thakoon's Spring-Summer catwalk show.
Woulf really like to experiment with this for a photoshoot. 
They used coloured hair powder on top of loosely braided and heavily hair sprayed hair!

WHAT'S ORANGE AND BOXY..?


This awesome orange box bag from ASOS!


Came across it in their magazine.
Styled and modeled by blogger Sandra Haglestam.
Her blog 5 inch and up is definitely one to check out!

I think she's won me over with this bag! Looks like it's the perfect size for my beloved Mac Book Pro and Vogue & Elle's!

LIVE WIRES


So it's half term and the moment and my family have all gone to London to visit my older brother for the week, leaving me home alone to take care of all the animals..wonderful!

But Jack is home so we've been cooped up in the house together, only ever leaving for delicious meals at his mums!

In our boredom we were inspired to do some Tim Walker-esque photoshoots and so set to work putting together fun little sets, gathering bits and bobs from all over the house!

And here are the results...



We were a bit worried everything would come out a bit O.T.T but I think they work well :)!

Jack decided on just one shot from each shoot and I think he definitely chose the best!
I think one more shot with a different setting would make a nice sort of triptych!

Loved putting together the sets for these! So much fun!

You can view better and bigger versions of the final photos on Jack's website :)

RESORT PROJECT


Eeeeee! After getting off to a good start fabric wise, deciding I would have a lovely little car printed cotton (very Prada SS12!) from Dalston Mill i've hit a glitch!

I ordered my fabric on Thursday I think and then brought a metre of matching yellow polycotton to use for the collar an cuffs of my dress. But got a call yesterday to say they couldn't find or didn't have any of the fabric I wanted in blue :(


 However, they do have it in green! I know there's not really much between them, but I just preferred the blue!


Anywho...I have come to terms with the colour issues but am now worried that it won't be delivered in time for Monday when we return back to college!

If it doesn't..I think I shall have a rather angry tutor on my hands..
and I will end up being behind on my project and may not finish in time :/
Which would be incredibly frustrating since I caught up on all my pattern cutting work so well!

Oh fiddle-sticks!!!
