This is probably my last post for the year of 2015. Slightly scary. After looking back over the year, I’ve decided that I spent far too much time whinging and wishing for more. I’d constantly tell myself to “just do it”, but it never went far. The goal for 2016 is to get rid of… Continue reading the sustainers :: gamma folk.
FINALLY CHRISTMAS. It’s good to be home, smell the Christmas tree, and have some fine weather. Currently preparing my body for some eating overdoses which are inevitable in my family, and catching up on very old recorded TV shows. Leaving work yesterday, with the coming 3 week break, was a wonderful feeling. All the stress… Continue reading want list :: appliqué.
Tonight is the time to reflect on the year that was, because scarily it is almost over, and 2015 is never coming back. I’ll be finishing the last bits off with a reception-free camping trip and back to back beach days - hopefully perfecting the surfing skills I never quite won over last summer. This… Continue reading highlights reel.
Christmas Party lesson - always stay to the end, because that's when Bohemian Rhapsody gets pulled out to finish off an already great night. And the rest of December so far can be summed up in three words: food, drink, gut. I might get to January and have already fulfilled my 2016 dietary requirements. Here’s… Continue reading inspiration wall :: dec.
For once I am slightly lost for words - I’ve just sort of run out. The end of the year has seen tensions run high, moods bouncing like crazy, and food coming out of our ears, as we count down the days until break. I’m currently in the midst of absolute exhaustion, looking forward to… Continue reading reliving :: peter pilotto ss16.
I feel this strange immense set of guilt every time I am too lazy to refuse a plastic bag at the store. You have one second to notify the staff member of your non-requirement and then it is too late. Only a second to take action. I might just be one person, but that's where everything… Continue reading plastic guilt.
It's not unusual to hear one comment on their wardrobe as an all black, colourless affair. Normally for good reason too - it looks great on everyone, is easy to wear, and absolutely timeless. Maybe this is the next stage of sustainable wearing, just buy black everything - then you can reuse and reassemble to… Continue reading anatomy of :: all black.
This is for all those times you feel like blending in and sinking behind the surface. The lesson from this shoot is to just create a mass of floral headwear, put them all on at once, and stay still. I’m in quite the opposite position this weekend though, with an apartment to myself, and nothing… Continue reading photoshoot :: wallflower.
I’ve had enough of depressing budget talk and calculating - it reached the next level this week. I am now a fully fledged adult with a budget (let’s see how long it lasts - already been revised once), but stuck in denying the fact that I have to do such things now by sticking my… Continue reading fangirling.
