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....
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!

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

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 :)
