Sunburn




The weather has been so erratic this week, one day it's pouring, the next it's like summer again! The sun has decided to make an appearence today which has put me in the holiday mood...the thing I enjoy most about holidays is poeple watching. I don't think anyone does the "sunburnt tourist" look quite like us Brits though.

Decorations




It was a miserably grey and rainy day yesterday so I tried to keep warm and busy by making some decorations and mini noteboards...for etsy perhaps?
I think they must be posh birds because each one has a gold leaf beak, in my mind they feast on superior seed or maybe just petite fours from Pierre Herme or Laduree. They look like the kind of birds with a sweet tooth.

Two mirrors, one little hat


It's been one of those days...I tried consoling myself by wearing a new cosy knitted hat (avec teeny flower brooch) which temporarily worked until I ended up waiting half an hour for a bus that's meant to come every 8 minutes. So I'm a bit behind with everything but managed to find some time to work on these....

Bows are back people!


PPQ

Why do I torment myself with drawing all of the little details?! Actually, I find it strangely relaxing if not a little hard on the eyes. I think I should start wearing my glasses again before I ruin them completely.

Talking of glasses, I tried these on in Selfridges and fell in love with them.
Unfortunately my pockets aren't that deep so I will have to keep myself happy looking through the Oliver Peoples wesbite. I'm partial to a nerd like style...geek chic!

Haircut


In response to my feeling slightly sleepy and low I decided to make a few changes last week.

First to go...the hair! (please excuse the slightly manic stare) I'm enjoying the shortness...much like Sandra

If money were no object...

Fashion smashion

I don't know if I've done Marc justice but I enjoyed the doodle all the same (click on the pic to go to flickr...it seems to be clearer on there)

I'm thoroughly enjoying all of the New york shows, especially Jonathan Saunders, who always amazes me with his use of colour. I have to say I might just be enjoying the street style photos even more...

Why I love you so...

Triangle love


I forgot to post this pic...it's a work in progress and I think is on it's way to permanently damaging my eyes...I'm seeing little dots everywhere! Click on the pic to go to a better quality flickr doodle

Keeping busy...

Doodle from the Reyes runway show

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your heartfelt comments on my previous post, it really means a lot to me that people have taken time to send some little rays of sunshine my way :) And a big thank you for the suggestions too, I like the Topshop one (but that's probably the lure of a potential discount there...I'm so shallow) and voluntary work is definitely something to look into.

In the mean time I think I've tried to keep my mind occupied with other things, including drooling over New York fashion week pics and spending some time studying the world of geekdom :)

Thank you again, sending sleepy vibes of love to everyone xxx

Hanging around in sleepy town

It's not often that I write about myself personally on this blog. I'm not too sure why, I'm definitely not averse to sharing or divulging information about myself...it's just that I haven't! But I've come to a point where I feel the need to share and ask for some help from a community I get so much inspiration from. I've only written about it once before, a long time ago but maybe I'll explain a little more now I've moved on a bit.

I have something called m.e. or chronic fatigue, it goes by many names but to me it's something that causes exhaustion, of both body and brain! It's a strange feeling, only one I can liken to feeling a bit fuzzy, almost like a cotton wool filled brain (sounds almost sweet really!) and very tired a lot of the time. Now while I try to make the best of a bad situation by working freelance from home, which I enjoy immensly as it lets me work at my own pace and have access to all of the wonderful blogs and websites that I visit for continual inpsiration, it also makes life a little tricky sometimes.

I know that working freelance in general can be a little isolated at times but when you feel tired when you wake up and unable to go out a lot of the time it can take it's toll on a girls social life! So I'm at the point where I'm craving a little interaction, something like work experience, or even a few mornings working somewhere. However, on approaching companies and explaining my sleepy situation I tend to get a kind reply explaining I'm not really suitable (if I get a reply at all, which is understandable given the situation). I'm generally a cheery little person but at times it can get a bit draining so I'm asking for a little blogger help and advice! I know it's aiming a little high to get a dream job somewhere but does anyone have any contacts that might offer a little hand of help? I love anything to do with illustration and am passionate about fashion, design and jewellery but also have a strange love of research. I could spend hours hopping from one blog to the next researching different ideas for illustrations, collecting information/pics etc but have no idea how this would even apply to a job!

Any opinions/advice would be much appreciated. Or on a day like this a little cheer would go a long way :)

Thanks for reading a long winded slightly self indulgent post...may it be the first of many :)
