Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

Happy New Years Eve everyone !!

Well todays the last day of 2011 and I am going to miss it. Ive had a wonderful year this year. My highlight of this has to be going to Paris with all my uni friends and going to London Fashion Weekend in September with my good friend Kirsti. I have also started my second year at uni which I am really enjoying at the moment :)

For New Years I'm up at Newcastle at the moment visiting my lovely cousins:) Went to the metro yesterday and bought a lovely shirt from Lipsy london which I can't wait to wear. I think for New years eve we are all going to get merry and go down the ranch :) !

I have started using pinterest this year and I love it - Check it out
Also follow me on twitter !

News Years resolutions !
New years resolutions are a tricky one for me because if I'm honest I don't always stick to them ;) Next Year I need to blog more and try and get more followers :) Also I really want to start using Lookbook this year to. Now I have photoshop to size the photo up there should be know excuse. :) I need to keep more organised with uni work and not let it get on top of me :) !

And finally I must not be afraid to try something new next year :)

I Hope everyone one has a lovely New Years Eve tonight and a very Happy New Year !

Mini Mannequin

For this terms uni project we have had to look at a film to gain inspiration from. The film I have chosen is High Society, with Grace Kelly in. Last friday before we broke up I did a toile of what my kite was going to be like using a mini mannequin. I thought I would post it on my blog, because I just loved working with the little mannequin. It was a much quicker way to produce a toile. I have decided to do a big sticky out skirt like the skirts Grace kelly wore. But I have decided to make mine shorter to make it more modern. Below are photos of my mini toile. I have used about 6 layers I think to create the fullness.
