Chilly days at the dock, Devon
I just bought some new trainers, they are black. As per. The idea is that I will wear them on holiday in Devon for walks and in Germany for being touristy.
So I thought I should have a look at some with colour, just to inspire myself for next time I decide it’s new trainer/casual footwear time and might be feeling brave enough to try something new. I bought a pair of orange nike free run’s last time and sent them straight back, replacing them with a pair of black (but discretely leopard print) ones.
Anyway, the usual culprits had many pairs I loved but Keds and K Swiss both seem to have thrown out great new collections! Go see..
Blogging, painting & watching the rain. This is a day off 😍🙌🌿
Attempting to start a Sketchbook and howling along to frozen, Today’s a good day 😘🙉🙌🌸
New flat’s ceiling are sooo high and the walls are all plain white and massive and so so bare so i’ve bought picture rail hooks to hang stuff but I’ve just gone through my ‘home inspo’ folder and I’ve decided I should get a wall hanging, they’re mainly mandala’s but that’s okay, as long as none of them bring bad things i’m going to choose from these 3 I found on ebay.
I’ve always struggled to find sandals I like, but this year I found plenty I love. Bikini’s? WHERE THEY ALL AT?! I had my ‘holiday’ early this year, was just a few girly days in center parcs being chilled out bums, but could I find a bikini I liked? NO. so I ended up digging out the ones I have, and have had for 3 years now, buying a new pair of black bottoms a size up from last years (oops) and making do. Since then however, I’ve turned back to what I know, I’ve written about Bjorn Borg before and once again they’re coming up trumps. Just look at these bikini’s.
(and yes I had a lot of fun putting them on manequins)
Look at how Havaianas went about congratulating Germany for winning this world cup nonsense
Havaianas, the iconic Brazilian firm and flip-flop maker for over 50 years, brought Rio de Janeiro to Ibiza recently in an authentically Brazilian extravaganza on one of Spain’s most famous beaches – the Playa d’en Bossa – to send a message to the world: the winner of the World Cup is Germany. Who could better magnanimously congratulate the winner of this competition, held in its heartland - Brazil, than democatic brand Havaianas?
While the sun shone high in the sky over families and tourists enjoying the first days of summer, thousands of pairs of Havaianas were arranged on the beach to form the Brazilian flag to honour the team which brought its country football’s biggest prize: an original, colourful and joy-filled message from the Mediterranean island to the rest of the world.
Havaianas also turned San Antonio beach, on the other side of the island into an authentic Brazilian beach by installing flip-flop-shaped showers for swimmers, making the area a real Territorio Brasileiro.
Havaianas is a symbol of freedom and Brazilian spirit. Since 1962, this Alpargatas company has been making footwear for the world’s most sensual country and promoting its message with one-of-a-kind creativity. Festive colours, continually evolving design, inspiration to go out, comfort you can’t say ‘no’ to, soft-to-skin materials and fun curves
I truly Love this image
I’ve been a bit quiet and I’d love to say I’ve been really busy but in reality life has actually just got a bit boring.
Since finishing my placement in May I’ve missed it. I loved being an intern at M&S and I want to go back. I’m now full time at my local wetherspoons trying to gather some savings to put towards my final year at uni - the plan is to have the money to try all the techniques and materials that I want to but it is killing me. I have worked 7 days a week for a year but I’m more drained now doing 4/5 shifts a week at the pub.I don’t know if it’s because I’m having all the late shifts thrown at me or whether the whole year has caught up with me but all I know is that I am being nowhere near as productive as I’d like and it’s making me sad.
Another thing on my mind is my weight, I got down to below 9 stone while I was on placement, and I was fit. I mean, really fit. I was at the gym 5 mornings a week for 90 minutes and I have gone from a serious routine of food and exercise to none, and put on a stone. I didn’t even notice until I tried putting on some of my jeans. I’m back to clean eating and as of this week I’m doing a bit of a green smoothie cleanse just to kick start some sort of weight loss and motivation. So yeah, more on that soon!
I have however, started my final year sketchbooks which I’m excited about. It’s so nice to be feeling inspired again, about halfway through this year I started to panic about how uninspired I was feeling but I feel much better now.
I am so excited to move back up to Huddersfield and get cracking,I’m looking forward to leaving the pub and not transferring back to hudds because it means I’ll have no late shifts and I’ll be able to focus on my work 100%. I need to start looking in to job prospects and graduate schemes which is so bloody scary and thrilling at the same time. I see myself in Home accessory design and that really is where I’m going to push myself to be.
Anyway, enough about me. The blog is back.
