Super Sunday

23 Jan

1. I had a massive house tidy/clean/sort yesterday and it felt goooood. I switched up my wall clipboards too. The picture’s a bit grainy but you get the idea.

2. I am really getting into breakfasts. Breakfasts enjoyed this week have been porridge with blueberries and chestnuts, and pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. Yum. Those were two separate breakfasts by the way, not all at the same time (although that could be arranged).

3. I was pretty shocked and pleased to walk by this window display this week. Monkee genes are sold in urban outfitters and lots of cool kids wear them, so it was super to see that they are sweat-shop free. I think they’re around the £50 mark as well, so the same price as you would pay for a pair from TopShop anyway.

4. Quick lipstick update – I am still well into it. I bought this shade for myself for my birthday. It’s Gulabi by MAC and it smells of sweets. Bonus.

5. This is an amazing to-do list for everyone. Via Casper ter Kuile.

6. This is technically from last weekend, but I love this photo so much. We were playing that game with the little pieces of paper and three rounds (?!) and this was the charades round. You could act out a celebrity, a place or a climate change impact. By methods of deduction, we think this is Olivia acting out the potential stopping of the Gulf Stream. This doesn’t sound at all fun, but you’ll just have to take my word for it that it was. And that we are SUPER COOL. I PROMISE.

7. My sister turned 18 last week too! Look, isn’t she cute. I bought these bird rings that fit together. She’s got the snow bunting, I have the dove.

4 Simple Goals – mega updates no. 3 & 4

9 Dec

Oh-kaay. Here are my last updates on the progress of my 4 Simple Goals! I have already updated on the lipstick-wearing and crafting, and my other two goals were to learn how to use my camera and to make a nice nest for myself in Brighton. So I thought I’d combine the two for this post and take some photos of my flat! I also used the photo editing tool for Mac here – ToyCamera AnalogColor. I hope you like the pics, I’ve tried to make it look homely and cute, and I’m pretty pleased with it!

This was the view from my bedroom window last week – amazing, huh?

4 Simple Goals – an update

22 Sep

Hallooo. I set myself 4 Simple Goals to complete before the end of 2011 over a month ago, so I thought now would be a good time to chart my progress!

No. 1 was to learn how to use my camera properly. I have been trying! You can see my photos of Climate Camp here, of Notting Hill Carnival here and of the ArtCrank bike poster party here. I know there is much, much room for improvement though so any tips would be much appreciated! Reading the manual will only get me so far.

No. 2 was to make a nice nest. Ooh and I have been busy. I am nearly done, just want to tack up a few postcards and then I’ll take some pics and put them up. I don’t why I’m nervous to show you, you don’t actually have to live here, I do!

No. 3 was to craft more. I must confess, I haven’t done anything on this front yet. I have so many plans. I also have fabric for curtains and I can’t bear to look at the current chintzy ones anymore so hopefully I will be taking action sooner rather than later. I also have an exciting art/craft/climate change project in the works which will hopefully be coming together over the next couple of months. Wait, WAIT!!! I forgot. I totally went to the Craftivist Collective meeting last week and joined in with their project. I’ll upload my photos tomorrow. TICK!!

No. 4 was to wear lipstick. That is me above, pouting my lipsticky lips at you all. Except you can’t really see it all that well. It was technically more of a “tint” today, but baby steps, my friends, baby steps. I will look like a clown soon enough, don’t you worry about that.

Just quickly, before I make a mad dash to Climate Camp, I wanted to share some flatspiration with you all. Been thinking about creating my nice new nest down in Brighton in a couple of weeks and I would love it to feel a bit like these two pictures. Cute, cosy and messy in a good way (as opposed to the horribly bad way I have left my room right now… sigh).
