New shoes

Most of my shoes are knackered...all of my brogues are holey and falling apart sooooo...I didn't feel TOO guilty spending £36 on these lovely new shoes...they remind me of fireman boots! I like^_^

I also got a vintage cardi for £8 which i haven't yet wanted to take's sooooo comfy! And also a faux fur hat ready for winter. IF I ever get my arse in gear and improve my sewing skills I'd love to make my own winter coat!! I'm also after a drape jacket...all seem to be very large and expensive though hmm:/

Today I bought this mask...hoping it will come in useful for future photo shoots. I'd like to by a fox one also...and there's a bunny head mask I have my eye on...only £14.95, bargain.

It has been too long since I last blogged...

Life has been very mundane recently, hence my lack of interesting blog posts. I do apologise and fingers crossed September shall see more exciting days!!^_^ 

Things to look forward to in September: 

1. Interning with designer Kylie Malcolm
2. Interning with PPQ
3. My 21st birthday
4. HOPEFULLY assisting a stylist...(I wont say who as not to jinx my chances of getting past an interview!!)  

This summer has gone so fast and i'm sure September will wizz by also as already I've already filled up my iCal! Just a bit fed up of my repetitive routine - I need to break out of it and 'get out there'...interning as much as possible.

Next week I'm going to visit my family in Devon which will be lovely, I left the cameras my Grandad gave me there so I will be able to pick those up and start playing! There's so many things I want to do but I just never get around to doing them or simply dont have the time or patience:/
Things I would like to do:

1. Write a book (Fantasy of course)
2. Learn how to use my Diana F+
3. Learn how to sew
4. Get another work placement...

...the list goes on. 
I just watched 'The Pianist'. It was very sad but also very good...think Schindler's list but following the experience of the jew more so than the good hearted German.

Furthermore, I am currently reading 'Incubus' by Carol Goodman and so far I am impressed! I'll let you know my overall verdict when I've finished it!

New phone

I'm having lots of fun with my new phone...I always swore down I didn't want a smart-phone or a touch screen cos it's not healthy to be connected to the internet 24/7!! BUT, I gave in and got myself a HTC and it's nice cos you can personalise's like carrying my mac around with me...but obviously not as good^_^ 

Loving the photo quality, and the lomo apps are great...I have a diverse collection of about 10 cameras film and digital and don't think I even need to bring them out with me anymore!!

Saturday night

Firstly, this is what I wore out last night - we went to Lennons which is always great fun with good music and atmosphere!

On another note, I went to London on Friday for an interview with PPQ. I'm working their show again this season so I'm really looking forward to that! Whilst there we had a wander around London's nicer areas: Islington, Chalk farm, Chelsea...some of the flats are just too cute I wish I could afford to live there!!

BUT alas, I think I'll head to Brighton first as it's just as nice but a tad cheaper^^

Last night we went to my Grandparent's house for a Chinese takeaway. Whilst there, my Grandad and I got onto the topic of old cameras and minutes later he was GIVING me a bag full of old cameras that he'd acquired either himself or from his Dad or Grandad! They're beautiful, can't wait to use some of them! (I'm pretty sure some of them have had their day though).

 Odd price!!??

Though not as exciting as I initially thought it would be, Submarine was a charming, innovative and inspiring independent film which follows the life of a young and troubled teen 'in love'. Quirky, cool and extremely visually pleasing, Submarine is definitely one to be added to the collection.
