I guess I should begin this post with an apology...I can't believe it's been nearly two weeks since I last posted. Mock exams have got the better of me recently, and I haven't made anywhere near enough time to do creative things, hence my lack of photos and posts. I can't thank you all enough for being patient and still looking at and following this blog despite my little unplanned break, and I promise I'll make it up to you with a load of cool posts coming your way in the next couple of weeks.
I've had a crazy time recently, beginning with seeing To Kill A Mockingbird with two of my friends at the Regent's park open air theatre. I'm studying the book for english, and it's one of my favourites, and the play completely did it justice. I really recommend trying to get tickets; the acting is incredible, especially from the actor playing Tom Robinson, who is just amazing and almost reduced me to tears on several occasions.
I then went to see the degree shows at Central Saint Martins yesterday with my textiles class, which was just wow on so many levels. The designs were incredible, and it was so good to be able to see the student's sketchbooks and designs alongside their finished pieces. It's open to the public for the next week or so I think, and is really worth a look if you are interested in studying product, ceremic, jewellery, textile or fashion design at college or university.

I discovered Jolene Magazine whilst at CSM, and from what I can find out it is a new magazine, but it is just so awesome and rookie-esque I just had to share it with you guys. The website is http://jolenemagazine.com/ and has playlists, fashion shoots, style icons and tips which are featured in the magazine, and it's extremely aesthetically pleasing and I have definitely found my newest obsession.

I have a bedroom tour ready to upload within the next few days, and I'm going to take lots of outfit pictures this weekend as I'm going to the Bowie exhibition (!!!!!) at the V&A. Hope you are all having a good week!

SUPER IMPORTANT--- GFC is actually being deleted on the 1st of July, meaning you will no longer be following this blog or be updated of when I post unless you switch to Bloglovin. Bloglovin is completely free and essentially the same as GFC, and all you need to do is click HERE or click the link in my sidebar to follow me and keep up to date with my slightly erractic blogging habits. I would be so grateful as I have tried really hard with this blog, and it would be a shame to have to start from scratch with pageviews and followers and such. Thankyou for understanding <3 p="">
