Update of my room:
Im trying to create a boutiquey feel to my room, i love plain white rooms, using accesories to create colour and indiviuality.
The chest in the final photo my mum was given years ago, which she redecorated in purple with a purple cover on the top, i wanted to give it a makeover as it was looking slightly old and dated, so i painted it white and reupholstered the top in pure silk material, it was quite hard to get it to fit really well but i managed it in the end with lots of pins, and now i think the end result looks exspensive and something noone else has :)
I still havent managed to buy my wallpaper yet, but im starting to think i want to save for an exspensive venetian dresser instead, what do you think?

This is another one of my recent buys, i really like the vintage feel to it, and the inside is so lovely and soft

i loveeeee these sandals, the whole shelf was absolutely filled with gorgeous colours, studs, prints etc i think i must want nearly every single pair, these are my favourite of all of them though, i couldnt get a photo of the whole shelf as the staff probably wouldnt have aloud me to haha.

im so loving this Chanel watch right now, although theres absolutely no way my budget is ever going to stretch to £15,490 for a watch ahh love it though oh and also the Chanel clutch!

Today has been quite productive, had my history of fashion lesson at college and  drawing lesson, in which were making prints design tshirts, and ive been researching loads of photography and models, ive fallen in love with practically nude shots of Kate Moss and one photo of Naomi Campbell, i think im going to use them for my design as most of the other in the class have chosen to do something really obvious like Vivienne Westwood or Chanel inspired, which i cant help but find totally uninspiring as its so cliche for fashion.

Today ive also written out my completely new C.V and tommorow im going to topshop to apply for a job as they have three new ones and im desperate to work for them :d imagine the discount haha!
p.s does anyone have any ideas on what you would wear to a job interview at somewhere like this? xxx

A page in my new sketchbook for college, im actually really enjoying this project, the brief is to make a Cristallo dress, which is basically a shift dress based on Cristallo, which is the rock which is completely clear, almost diamond like! Iv been designing around Chihuly chandeliers, and my favourite colourway atm is the blues and yellows of the chandelier thats at the V&A museum in London, as it makes excellent patterns for the print of my dress, also ive noticed that Matthew Williamson has used the same colours on his S/S 2010 collection, added bonus :D

I love the new limited edition collection of Chanel, Le Vernis nail varnish, especially the Paticuliere range, the pastel colours are soo pretty and i think for £19 each there amazing!
Ive also discovered today Tom Binns Disney Couture collection inspired by the new Alice In Wonderland movie (which i also love).

I feel really proud, i had an email on my flickr account the other day asking if a company could use my photo in their book for London & in a London tour guide, of course i said yes, but i never thought in a million years someone would actually want to use my image for something, it was just a picture i had to take for my old graphic design project for college!
The photo chosen :D

Today i have been bargain hunting where i live, and i found these linen curtains for £3 i was so pleased as i wanted to buy some of these and probably would've spent alot more money on them!
Im trying to redecorate my bedroom and they fit really well with my white theme, i want everything to look really white and vintagey so im on the hunt for any little decorations for it, if anyone has any ideas of where i can find little bargains let me know :D

Im also going to do one wall in Cath Kidston wallpaper, but im undecided on which colour to go for, its between these two?

Today i discovered a few photographers in this book of fashion photography, and fell in love with Corrine Days work, her Kate Moss photographs (the very first ones of her aged 15) i printed a few off and im going to frame them and hang them in my room!
Along with Corrine Day i discovered: Juergen Teller & Nick Knight, who also had some amazing fashion photographs!
As you can probably tell i love photography & especially fashion photographs, im really aspiring to become a fashion journalist, and i would love to study at London College of Fashion, and my absolute dream would be to work for Vogue
