WE'RE IN THE HEART OF THE CITY WHERE THE ALLIGATOR ROAM











Yayy I got a roll of film developed on Saturday! These photographs were all taken in Newcastle using my trusty little - but rather hefty - Kodak Retinette Ib with a roll of Fuji Film Superia 36Exp. I had a lovely day wandering about in the sunshine although I couldn't feel my hands because they'd gotten terribly numb 'cause I'm stubborn and refused to put gloves on. Oops. I had hoped to post an outfit post with my marvellous new dress from We Are Cow but I forgot to take any photographs. Double oops. Ah well, another time. 

What do you think? They're supposed to be kinda vaguely related to my art project "texture" but erm yeah I wasn't really thinking about that when I was taking them. To be honest, I usually decide how my photos fit the topic after taking them and getting them developed. I'll find some way to justify it.

Byee

THIS LIFE IS MORE THAN JUST A READ THROUGH







Hey there peoples, I don't know about you but these last few days have been so busy with last-minute Christmas shopping and wrapping mountains of presents. Gaahh I am so excited about giving them to my family, I think I've done pretty darn good! - Fingers crossed everyone likes them.

I thought I'd show you a few more pages from my journal scrapbook thingy that I've been muddling my way through lately. The stuff in these pages is all from STYLIST magazine and the UO Zine #3 with a few other bits stuck in here and there.

Also, thank you all for your kind comments about the blogger illustrations I posted on Wednesday, it's always nice to hear that people like what you've done. Thankyouthankyou lovely ducks,

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE BLOGGERS #2




ELLIE // ROSE & VINTAGE 
MEGAN // BRIAR ROSE
TORI // TORI'S TALES
AMY // AMY VALENTINE
TOLLY // TOLLY DOLLY POSH
BAS // LET'S SEE...

Tah Dahh - I've finally finished the second edition of "These Are A Few Of My Favourite Bloggers!" If you didn't see the post I did waaayyy back in July then take a look HERE....I find it pretty darn weird looking back at my old posts though...

This has probably been my most ambitious illustration project to date but it's honestly been so much fun, I wanted to draw more of you lovely people but I'm not kidding when I say I would have been here 'til next Christmas! I suppose it's made me realise that actually I do enjoy drawing people and made me love using watercolours and pen a whole lot more. Well, I really do hope that everyone likes how I've painted them and that this post introduces everyone else to some fabulous bloggers if you don't already know about them.

P.S. I'd just like to say a quick thank you to everyone who follows me on Bloglovin', I've just reached 280 followers! It's about as corny as it gets but it's true - it makes me so giddy to see people following this blog and the fact that people actually do is a constant source of amusement. Thanks a bunch you lovely ducks.

SNOOPY STARS AS THE WEATHERMAN







You really can't beat a bit of Peanuts to cheer you up when you're feeling a tad on the glum side.

Seeing as I am currently desperately hoping for it to snow I thought I'd share a few wintry cartoon strips from one of my favourite "Snoopy Stars As" books. Speaking of which, I don't think I've ever mentioned it on here but I actually have quite a hoard of these Peanuts cartoon strip books after adopting quite a few from my Grandparent's huge collection. They're just the best so I've been thinking I might start sharing a few now and then? Maybe I'm weird but they always crack me up; I reckon it's their expressions - look at them, I mean how darn adorably hilarious!? Also, isn't Woodstock just the cutest! Ta ta for now peoples,

OUTFIT // WHO'S GOT SOMETHING, GOT SOMETHING TO SAY





DENIM JACKET // VINTAGE LEVIS // EBAY 
PURPLE KNITTED JUMPER // H&M
VELVET SHIRT // CHARITY SHOP
BLACK SKINNY JEANS // DOROTHY PERKINS
BUTTERFLY COLLAR PINS // PEACOCKS
CHERRY RED DR MARTENS // SCORPIO 

Hello there peoples, here's my first ever outside outfit post! Last Sunday, I ventured out with my trusty little camera, my mum and Mr. B (who looks ever so dashing in that first picture don't you think). All in all, despite my initial reservations, I think it was quite a success. It did, however, make me realise just how much I neeed to get me a tripod. Goodness me, you should have seen the precarious places that my camera was balanced! I suppose you could call this a "typical weekend outfit" as I pretty much live in my black jeans and DM's. What have you been wearing constantly lately to keep you cosy in this cold weather?

P.S Thank you for the lovely response to my last post, my Christmas Wish List, you have no idea how much your kind words cheer me up!
