My new Monica Vinader Slink bracelet set with Rose Quartz and Carnelian stones

The best thing you could have waiting for you when you get home after a horrific week of uni deadlines and reviews. Fact. 

Jewellery definitely buys my happiness and as my flatmate and I agreed, anyone that says packaging is underrated..is a fool.
It was a suede pouch, inside a box, inside a box, inside a box surrounded by purple tissue paper and neon pink string and it felt like Christmas all over again. I'm in love.


1. My studio space where I seem to spend most of my life at the moment

3. Tailored jacket toile with close up of the style line in the front piece
4. Summer sunset at my Dad's house...the colour inspiration for my collection is the last colours of the sky at sunset

To say the first term of my Third year has been a bit hectic is a rather large understatement. Its been a whirlwind of research, making samples, essay writing, fashion shows, deadlines, birthdays, broken laptops, parties, fancy dress and broken cameras.

As always, time has flown by far too quickly, and somehow, Christmas time hit me square in the face swiftly followed by New Year, both of which I was completely unprepared for. 
The constant flow of dinner parties, drinks at country pubs, family visits and other festive activities kept me nice and busy before making a premature return to Uni to prepare for my upcoming huuuge deadline...so much work, so little time..as usual.

Now its a New Year which means new start and all that..2012 for me means, turning 22, graduating from university (oh god), leaving Liverpool and hopefully figuring out what I want to do in life and getting a job...i.e perhaps the scariest year of my life...
