Flamingo Broach

I've been meaning to buy a new leather jacket and I have finally gotten round to it. This one was a Zara find. I would love to buy a really good quality leather but unfortunately my lack of money permits me. This one was only £50 so it's not the best quality but with the worn effect, it has a kinda AllSaints feel to it.
As it was such a lovely day my boyfriend and I took a wee trip to the Royal Botanic Gardens. Shockingly, I haven't been in years and so it was a nice revisit to my childhood.

While out on our travels we visited a few of Edinburgh's vast number of antique shops. I love looking around at all the interesting trinkets but usually still come away empty handed. However I did buy a small trinket today, although it was not from an antique shop. I found this lovely flamingo broach. It's fab. I've decided my new fav fashion adornment is going to be flamingos and seahorses.

Spring is here but unfortunately the weather isn't so thought I would get a wee bunch of daffodils to brighten things up. I just love the colour of them, its so cheery :).

Peter Pan Collar

This was very simple to make. I used some lace and sewed it onto a plain dress.

Midnight Nails

My most recent nail craze has been Shellac Nails. Shellac Nails are great, it is a varnish that lasts 14 days without chipping. Perfect for people, like myself, who apply nail varnish and some how manage to have a crack in it within hours of paining them. I cannot wait to try this out but unfortunately I have to wait until next week for payday. So in the mean time I have painted my nails how I would like them done.
I used BarryM in Navy for all of my nails and BarryM Pink Iridescent for the sparkle.

I've been lusting over pointed shoes with metallic toes. I know this will be a key trend. To get a head start on the trend I purchased a pair of hot pink pointy shoes on ebay then painted the toes using metallic paint...

First Post

So, I am currently going through the long drawn out process of applying for university. I am applying for art and fashion and have spent months creating and perfecting my port folio. I work during the week in the bank and any spare moment I have seems to be filled with work and more work. I am beginning to feel the stress! As I have not applied through a school or college it has been really tough to work out exactly what to do and what is expected. So I have had my first interview, at Glasgow School Of Art, and I thought I would shed a little light on what to expect for all of you confused souls like myself.

I spent the night with my boyfriend in the amazing CintizenM hotel in Glasgow city centre, its pure futuristic, Japanese style, luxury. A night here helped settle my nerves. I then made my way to the dreaded interview. The interview process consisted of waiting in a room before on of the interviewee's took my port folio away without me to look at. After about 15 minutes and what seemed like an eternity they asked me to join them in the room where I found my folio sprawled across the table. They asked me some questions to which I nervously answered. And that was it, See you later, Good luck. And I was gone.

Now all I can do is wait and it horrible. But fingers crossed I guess!
