G O G G L E me

Every now and then I google myself. Yip I said it, it's true, but everyone does it right?...right?....

Not suprisingly there wasn't a heck of a lot of stuff about me other than a couple of things from Uni and that I'm a qualified nurse some where in the US of A, belong in a high school band AND am on the honor role... shesh however do I manage it all...

But I must admit there was a part of me wishing there was maybe just a teensy wee bit more about plain ol' me.
Have decided this must change. Must show the world I am worthy of their gossip.

Try it, I bet you'll find something interesting! -your name not mine...

Happy Birthday!

Whoops, so I'm not particularly good at keeping up with dates and so not surprisingly I managed to let the first year anniversary of my blog go flying past with no hip hip horays or any type of celebration (-wait what was I doing September 1st this year?... hmmm anything remotely celebratory I could gloss over being a party for this? nope nada.)

So belated birthday wishes and all that to you dear blog, I have no idea if people actually read you or whether they merrily click on past to the next blog but I have faith in you! you keep me sane... well maybe not so much but it can't help to try right?!

Meet M O R G A N

So it's the weekend -okay Saturday night to be precise and yes I am indeed at home (What?! you're in London and not out partying the night away?!) no there is nothing wrong with me... it's just that well you see there may be this little itty bitty tv show that I swore I would never ever watch and well it turns out I may be ever so slightly, just a weee bit addicted to it.... it's X-Factor night!

However as you can see it does not quite hold all of my attention... okay well the ad breaks don't...
Moving on...

Meet Morgan. Morgans greatest ambition in life -according to her blogger profile -is to be Cinderella at Disneyland -she actually does have the face for it too, (although I'm not completely convinced this is her true ambition... each to their own though!) Anywho do go have a looksey at her blog, very entertaining!

I absolutely adore Mary Katrantzou. I'm a huge fan of digitally printed fabric for clothing especially when the prints/graphics are placed around the form with particular stategic care to placement rather than an all over repeat. Mary is a London native, 27 years old and has just won an amazing award as a young creative. Her Spring 2011 looks are based on photographs from the 70's by Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin -mostly interior/decor shots basing the room on the body, however I love her pieces with the giant chunky jewels and perfume bootle shapes wrapped around the body on beautiful stylised dresses. Very talented indeed, would love to get my hands on one of her pieces!

Another Fantabulous (yes it's a word...okay maybe not), illustrator Yasmine Surovec. She has an awesome blog called A Print A Day where she does just that -posts one of her captivating prints daily. She also has an online shop where she sells copies of her beautiful prints and has weekly free downloads but not only that -she sells great digital kits so you can Do-it-yourself!
Have a lookseeee!
Also came across an interview she gave to Indie Fixx
