"What?" .... "I have a secret" doodles!

I've started doodling when I'm less occupied and find it quite relaxing. I think I might draw something really interesting today, like some sort of scenery or something, seeing as it's a really nice day!

Just got in from a run, had my first game of the netball season and felt dia after it, so figured I need to umph up my fitness in preparation! Also have some really good news but will share that later on!

Right now I feel like having a sort out, looking at my eBay shop, doing some washing (thrills) and maybe some drawing! 

I am so going to do some moodboards and trend forecasts soon and have lots to tell about Autumn Fair about what's hot and what's NAT. 

For now I'll upload some mini sketches from my week! Hope you've had a good week now!

Macmillan Coffee Morning!

So I made some cute gingerbread men for Macmillan coffee morning on Friday! Went all out and wore green also! They went down really well at work and even my tuba ware disappeared, yikes! I think we raised £190! Pretty good going for an array of cakes and treats! 

Netball season starts next week, cannot wait!!

London baby!

Yesterday was a lovely day my mum, sisters and myself went to London for the day. We visited the Tate and I wanted to see the Dan Flavin collection in the artists rooms. His work is so amazing, I love how modern his work was for its time. We then had a little potter around and how amazing is the Tate?! Incredible. We went for lunch on the South Bank and visited Borough Market which was rather tasty! We met up with my uncle and cousin who took us on a mini tour of the South Bank, was a fab day for it! Walked over Tower Bridge, visited the Tower of London, St Paul's and walked back over Millennium Bridge. We then had a race back to Euston as we had about half an hour to get on two different lines, which stopped off at 7 stops prior to ours, walking in between and a run to the train on the platform! And 2 minutes to spare!! Good work team!

Wilkinsons Stationery!

Last year I worked on stationery for Wilkinsons and worked on I think three ranges, Sustain, Urban and Wilde. Low and behold, I spotted them in store! How lovely is the window display also! Come on kiddies and fellow office workers, stock up on your goodies!

Cotswolds Visit

Today mum and myself visited Bourton-on-the-Water which was lovely. We pottered around the shops, had cream teas, ate ice creams and got lost in a maze! How that maze was suitable for children is beyond me! 

There were some really sweet shops there, like a glass shop which had little glass garden mushrooms out the front and some lovely looking and smelling eateries! 

There was even a duck race!!

Nice weather and good coffee!

Mum and I had coffee in the garden this afternoon, how cute are these cups?! My mums home is great! 


So this week I've booked the week off. Which is great because I haven't taken any holidays this year so far, other than the odd day off for my graduation, birthday and hen do. So I'm going to spend this week with my mum and sisters, something I want to do before I go to Australia.

So tomorrow we've got planned a day out to Kelmscott Manor in Gloucestershire to see one of the homes of William Morris, which I am really looking forward to. I did want to go to Red House in Kent, because I think it looks beautiful, but Kent is more of a stop over trip and I'm trying to watch the pennies! I'm really looking forward to it, we are going to combine the visit with a stop off in the Cotwolds at Bourton-on-the-Water, for a cream tea and a peruse, so should be nice and pretty, so be kind to me please english weather!!

I'm hopefully going to go to London for the day also to visit the Tate Modern as I've never been before and visit an exhibition by Dan Flavin who I studied when undergoing my Interior Design degree, so I'm looking forward to that and hopefully combining that with a little potter around London.

Really looking forward to zoning out this week and relaxing for once in a long while.
