1 - Five Things One Year

It's strange how a year can just go by like, THAT! How you can get carried away living your life and leave things that you care about forgotten in your wake. I think that this is the best explanation I have about what I let happened to this blog. Suddenly I'm looking at a web page thinking "S**T !!! Has it really been that long?" I guess I got so carried away in new adventures and sort of forgot about this space. The past year has been really exciting, full of great moments with new friends and new lessons learned. 

1. Brighton is SO MUCH FUN, there is always something going on and something to do.

2. So much to do, whether that is a night out or finding a great coffee shop to chill in with a book

3. There are so many pretty things to find

4. Lot's of amazing people to meet

5. A new room to decorate (haha I love a good interior)

Skirt of Colour

Yesterday was an odd sunny day for the weather in the UK at the moment! I used the opportunity to quickly snap my outfit. This skirt is one of my absolute favourites, it's a vintage monsoon skirt that I found on eBay.  (Looking at the pictures, the next thing I'm going to wear it with is a white shirt and black boots! Maybe a beenie or beret)

Creating Red Dresses

Although it has to be said that, so far this summer I've done nothing really. Definitely nothing of any consequence creatively.  Really all I've done is bum about my life mostly going to work, re-visiting my 14 years old selfs questionable taste in literature and go to a music festival. Latitude which I lost my phone at, but thankfully found at the end of the festival, so no pictures for the likes of Instagram or this blog, unfortunately. :(((((((((((  Although it was a really amazing time, full of amazing music and memories.

Despite the fact that I can't claim that I've really created much lately, I can claim this!  I have had this old dress lying around for a while waiting for me to transform it, as I hate to chuck something that still has some potential even if it is broken. It is part of the few things that I have actually made/ transformed/ got out of bed and done recently. When I was thinking about what to do with this old dress I tried to just let the dress talk for itself; letting the shape and the stories of this dress shape its new life. It's definitely become this sweet kind of fairy tale childlike dress with a dash of edge I'd like to think. I feel like a fresh version of little red riding hood wearing it. (life goal achieved)

Eaves is an amazing artist, I discovered him at latitude festival  a couple of weekends ago, I actually saw him twice in one day. I love his folky sound its really entrancing, I've had him on repeat since I got back. Song:  Eaves - Dove in Your Mouth
