Neglect

I've been a bit neglectful of my blog recently but I'm aiming to turn it into a regular thing!
Here's a few highlights since my last post demonstrated by an array of bad quality Facebook and Instagram photos:
  • A weekend visiting the Bristol Comic and Zine Fair
  • A few visits to London with old and new friends
  • Plenty of daytrips around and about
  • A promotion to a full-time designer and digital marketing at work
  • Other little bits and bobs.

Style

It's been a while since I posted anything about personal style, and I've been having good luck with the local chairity shops recently. Also, my flatmate revealed she has a tripod and remote, so yay for me!

Obviously I still have no idea how to use it, but here goes...






Jumper - Charity shop. Originally H&M
Shirt - Charity shop. Originally Primark
Skirt - River Island
Shoes - Converse, via eBay
Tights - M&S
Necklace - Urban Outfitters
Bracelet - Crocheted by a friend 

I also moved desks in the office, look at my new view!

Lomography

Today my good friend (and flatmate) Sophie held a workshop on lomography as part of a local incentive called 'Try This' to get people to show their skills and share their passions. I'm clueless when it comes to lomography, so it was awesome to learn what it was all about. We got to watch a presentation and eat lots of sweets, then make filters for our cameras/smart-phones using the wrappers! She also gave us disposable cameras to take away and play around with, so I plan to take a load of the beautiful surroundings where I work.

Anyway, here's some of the ones I took on my phone camera today. Oh and you should check out Sophie's blog here!

Wedding Owls

I'm stuck between my crappy old camera and my phone camera, so apologies for the terrible quality! 
Anyway, I painted a wedding card for a friend. Two newly-wed owls madly in love.


Also a few things I got up to this weekend.

Forever Sun







Snaps

Just a few tidbits. Most of these photos were taken on my crappy old camera because my memory card for the Nikon has been lost for the last few weeks. But was it really?? No, no it wasn't! Because it's been hiding in my laptop all along.

I went to Monkey World. Marmosets are my favourite!




I got some pretty new things, including the new Dr Marten Drench boots which are basically wellies. I wore them all weekend in the pouring rain and my feet didn't get wet once! I'm in love.

I brought this from my super talented friend Luke. An second-hand stool customised with old Iron Man comic strips! He's also an awesome tattooist. Check out his tumblr HERE.

Type and doodles

I made a voucher for my boss using fine-liner pens. It was a quiet evening, so I got a bit over enthusiastic on the doodling, but I really enjoyed drawing the text. Hand-drawn typography is definitely something I want to get more into.
