This summer after much encouragement/nagging from myself, my good friend Lucie finally started making her fabulous sequin capes to sell! At Shambala festival she got a stall in The Fashpack tent with me and they were so popular that she nearly sold out...

The cape you can see here was kind of the don of all capes though, the most glorious specimen... and as such Lucie didn't know quite how to price it, so decided to hold a raffle. You can see a video of it being drawn here... it gets pretty tense!

Naturally we couldn't give it away until we had some photographs documenting its marvellousness, so voila! 

Here is me on two hours sleep prancing around in a borrowed Puckoo Couture catsuit (matches my hair so good, right?) trying not to get any mud on this wondrous creation. Even though I was in the midst of a festival I still got some funny looks whilst pulling super hero poses in the mud...!

All of these snaps are by Lucie's lovely & talented boy Ben. You can see more of her creations or contact her to order your very own sequin cape on her Facebook page; capes capes capes!  

I will be posting about the rest of my Shambala festival soon... in the meantime have a look at my post from last year's festival

First issue of the year for the uni arts & culture supplement I edit. Even though its just a little mini issue, I'm particularly pleased with how nicely this one came together in such a short space of time! I've freshened up the design for this issue & I'd love to know what you guys think.

moodboard & mixtape : and i'll run run run like the bullet from a gun

colour, collage, moodboard, rainbow, Meadham Kirchoff, Fred Butler, nail art,
Accidental blogging hiatus strikes again! Whooooops.

I managed to squeeze in something like 12 festivals this year including some very last minute ones:  Festival No. 6 where I worked with the lovely S'Juice Me gals & a quick trip to the Isle of Wight for Bestival where I worked with a the fantastic charity Eighth Plate and of course a little one dayer at Tokyo World with the Fashpack crew.

But October has very quickly slapped me in the face and now I'm back at uni learning all of the stuff and trying to do third year properly.....! So here's a colourful moodboard and mixtape to try and push away those oncoming winter blues. This week I am thankful for:

WESTWORLD! It's my third year as editor of my uni newspaper's arts & culture supplement and I'm so chuffed how this one is looking, I'll be able to show you soon!

Roller derby. So ever since seeing Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore looking totally badass in the 2009 film, Whip It, I've always thought Roller Derby was the coolest thang ever... It turns out there is a thriving roller derby community in Bristol and they have 2 hour drop in sessions for just a fiver on Thursday nights! I loved it last week and will definitely return... let's see how long it takes me to get too bruised and whimp out...!

Gal pals & lady loves. Not wanting to get too mushy but after this summer I have some truly fab female friends dotted all over the place. Big up the sisterhood!
