Floral Dreams

Last week Boyfriend had Friday off work, so I worked on some projects in the morning and took the afternoon off to spend some time with him. We went into the city to take his guitar to the repair shop and I just wish I’d never been up those stairs now! The repair man works in a studio several flights above a guitar shop. As we walked up the creaky bare wooden stairs, old posters climbing the walls, the sound of the guitars being played below echoed through the building. I was surprised to walk into the repair shop and be greeted by such a bright, white and airy space. I was immediately in love. It was the perfect size for a design studio and in such a great location in case anyone wanted to pop in and buy some pieces.

I know I am years away for being able to afford the luxury of having my own studio, but I can’t stop thinking about that place and it’s endless closed doors – wondering what, if anything is behind them.
I’m at a crossroads where I’m running out of time to work on all my projects, but I’m so desperate to seek out more. I’m still unable to give up my ‘day job’ and become the full time designer I’ve always dreamed of, but some day soon something is going to have to give. I’m bursting to do more and I’ve completely outgrown my current living/working situation. Where do we go from here when it’s a little too early to take that leap of faith?

Easter Weekend… Minus the Easter.

So this weekend has been super long here in the UK, not sure how wide across the world this holiday spreads. We had Friday off and go back to work tomorrow (Tuesday) and quite frankly I want to marry this bank holiday and have it’s super awesome babies ;) I feel SO cleansed, like you wouldn’t believe. I have scrubbed so many tasks off my ‘to do’ list and I feel very clear on what I want now… getting it is the next hard part, I guess.

I usually spend Easter Sunday with my mum and my brother. The last few years my brother’s girlfriend has also been getting involved and we still have an awesome (and wildly competitive!) Easter Egg Hunt, despite being in our mid-to-late twenties (Holy God, I am in my mid twenties?!). This year, however, my brother couldn’t make it down until next weekend so we’re, uh, postponing Easter. Thus meaning my boyfriend will be at band practice so I am a team member down! FAIL.

It’s been so nice around where I live, super quiet! I live in a very ‘student’ area so I guess everyone went to spend the holidays with their families. I adore the peace and quiet it has brought us, especially in the park!

My mum brought me this vest back when she went to California a few years ago to visit her partner’s family, it’s quite worn and a bit bobbly now, but I still love it. The necklace I got more recently from a jewellery shop in the mountains of southern Spain where my uncle lives. I really love how the two look together. The colours aren’t complementary whatsoever ;) but the whole ‘tribal’ look brings them together and means I can wear a red cardigan with my vest. Whoever said “Red and green should never been seen…” I stick my tongue out to you.
In other news, I’m finding outfit posts harder each time, which is unexpected really. I can’t help but feel that pang of sillyness, but I shall not give in.
