If i was given no budget and allowed to go off and take a shoot anywhere, Thailand is where I'd go! I went to Thailand summer 2011 the pictures are taken from pretty much all over ... Tonsai, Krabi, Koh phanang, Koh Phi Phi, Bankok. I can't think of anything better for inspiration and a positivity boost, than travelling... here are some of my favourite snaps of the beautiful views we got to see.

Creepers and Flatforms

Even as a fashion obsessive, I am not one to be getting new clothes shoes and handbags every other day... of course I would love to but in reality most of my clothes are 3years old and re-worn in a different way each season, which is why my 'what I wore today' will be more about "how to wear" than "where to buy"... However working in retail is my weak point! and in my current job at 'office' I am turning into more and more of a shoe queen! so here is yesterdays purchase, I went for the least outlandish of the three pairs of to arrive, but i do love them all! It didn't take me much magazine flicking to realise Gaga, Rhianna, and Jessie J have been fashioning them beautifully recently! Love them, they are ridiculously comfy and pretty damn cheap! couldn't really think of a reason not to buy a pair!

My new shoes :) :)

Manish Arora

Today I wanted to introduce you to an 
indian designer who i was not aware of untill recently. His designs are as beautiful and exciting as his name is. He has done collaborations with Disney, Mac, Swarovski and many more amazing brands. You will probably recognise some of his designs worn by Gaga, Niki Minage and Katy Perry. The above photographs shown are some of my favourite from earlier collections... sooo colourful and textured. I have also added my favourites below from his S/S 12 collection for a further nosey have a look at http://www.manisharora.ws/index.html

portrait in a portrait

Here is a photo shoot based around unusual portraits, the theme is a portrait in a portrait. I took these photos, out and about in newcastle city centre... as a countryside girl I was excited to be absorbing the city and in this shoot went quite urban with a monochrome set of pictures... have a look.

photo collections

Sooo a busy week in London has made me very due a new post! But I have collected some lovely pictures to share from here there and everywhere... it's a bit of a summery feel, but that tends to be my style throughout the year... wishful thinking! I love the patterns and dyes used in these photos, and I have a real thing for grainy photography, oh and of course loving the beaches!!!

Tea party

Today I have decided to begin my first 'what i wore today', I thought it would be fitting as I am in London for London fashion week, and if you can't parade in your favourite clothes then... when can you! so here is my outfit... I'd like to think i would be invited to a children's tea party in this cute dress!

T-Shirt cutting

T-Shirt cutting is something that I discovered a few summers ago when a friend, introduced me to 'Adam Saaks' videos. For me its not exactly the fashion statement i would choose... but its a lot of fun!! Plus as a Uni student its proven to be popular with my friends when it comes to making an XL bar crawl T-Shirt slightly more flattering and even experimenting until we figure how to turn one T-shirt into two last minute, there are litteraly hundreds of things you can create once you start experimenting, so here are a few of mine, theres only one rule... stretch the cotton, so that it doesnt frey and then cut, twist and knot away!

Here is the Adam Saaks film.

Desigual is a relatively new company of just over 30 years.  Within that time, the brand has grown from strength to strength, exploring a unique way of promoting. The Barcelonian company has a strong corporate culture as a fun.

The company branded their first collection in 1986 with their slogan ‘no es lo mismo.’ meaning 'its not the same the concept of ‘atypical.’ The idea was that everything is surprising and not ‘typical.’ From there on Desigual’s strategies were ‘atypical’ creating a unique selling point for the organisation. 

Effective PR led the company to becoming international, Desigual were inspired by the retraction of public nudity. The campaign was launched “entra desnudi y sal vesitdo” enter naked and leave dressed. The campaign was imperative to timing, and the recent law change meant the campaign was completely unique and shocking. The first hundred people that arrived at the shop naked left dressed. 

Glocalising itself with slightly less shocking but equally effective campaigns for the  less eccentric of the world, with “kiss the world” over 3.000 people kissing in Barcelona. Just a year later the strategy for fun campaigns was evidently working as in Madrid the second ‘kiss’ involved over 7.000 people. 

In 2011 Desigual signed a world wide partnership with ‘cirque de soleil ' which is also fun colorful and dynamic, I can't wait to see what the company gets up to next!
