Day Two #100dayshappy

So here we go, day two.

Illustration is my passion and so when my lecturer suggested I focus my attentions on lingerie design, after she saw a piece from my 'about me' project, and honestly, it was the best thing anyone had ever said to me. Lingerie is one of my favourite things in the world and so to combine my two passions as one, well, what a dream come true?!

Day One of #100dayshappy

I know that I am very guilty of ignoring the little things that make me happy on a day to day basis as much as the next person. This beautifully simple challenge is just a lovely excuse for me to recapture that love for every day that fails to register in my thought process currently. My boyfriend suggested that I join him in this quest and so, here goes!!

Day One; 

Seeing as he suggested that I do the challenge, and maybe something to do with how much I love him, my beautiful boyfriend is going to be the feature of Day One's ' #100dayshappy. This poor boy has to put up with everything from my incredibly annoying need to be outside most of the time to my awful habits and grumpy, tear-fuelled tantrums. After a lovely seven months together, I can safely come to the conclusion that this lovely lunatic of a boyfriend I have acquired makes me happy at least once every single day.

It's been a little while.

Apologies. It's been a little while since I've blogged on this account. But rest assured, I shall be more proactive from this moment forward. 

A quick update: I am now almost finished with my art foundation course (exhibition is in May, Scary!!)  and I am still a sales assistant at Monsoon. It has been a busy few months but at last it is April! My favourite (mainly because it's my birthday month but who doesn't love a few April showers?!). Anyway, I've been thinking long and hard about my career choices and I still have almost no idea what I want to settle on. I know, however,  that I will not be happy if I am not in the creative industry in some way. 


I also have a beautiful boyfriend of seven months of whom I shall blog about soon enough.
However, what to expect in the following blog posts? Fashion, outfit of the week, illustrations, exhibition progress, food and plenty of inspiration.

Keep visiting me and I shall try not to disappoint further!

Having been a total lingerie enthusiast for at least the last six years, you can only imagine my delight to come across the most charming website, www.knickerocker.com. As an independent lingerie business located in LA, Knickerocker creates unique and ultimately gorgeous underwear. I just can't wait for payday so that I can rush over to their etsy shop (Knickerocker Etsy) and buy everything I can afford.

It feels as though I've been hiding under a rock, I last blogged in February and it is now May.
A few changes, I cut my hair as you can see in the photos. Everything is all systems go at the moment with University and job searching. To all of my beautiful friends who are stressing to the point of break, I promise that we can do this!!

In the time that I've been away, I've turned 21, attended high tea at The Ritz London, made my own high tea with my beautiful mammy, celebrated my Dad's birthday, written a few essays and drunk wine by the seaside. I want to make the most of my last month or so in beautiful Falmouth.

It has been a while since I've written.
Much to my mother's dismay, I've had my lip pierced. It did hurt, but only for 3 seconds, and I do have a bruise from the clamp, which is hidden behind concealer in the photo above, however, I quite like it! The boy said that it didn't look as bad as he thought, and my mam is now considering getting her nose pierced (isn't she such an absolute babe?)! In other news, I've spent a week at home whilst waiting for semester two of third year to begin, it is ever so sad to think that it is so far into my last year. It will be heart breaking to leave my beautiful friends. Nevertheless, I will be returning to Falmouth shortly to begin semester two (and with that, dissertation number two, booo!). It will be lovely to see everyone after a week, but it is always so hard to leave Swansea - regardless of how disgusting Wind Street is, I still miss the place. Before I leave, I may pop into boots to pick up a darker eyebrow pencil and try my hardest to resist buying hair dye! What is it about us girls and our hair? I get so god damn bored so quickly. I think it's time for a fringe trim if nothing else.So, hopefully next time I write I will be in Cornwall with good eyebrows and better hair...but no promises.

1. Fox slipper socks to keep my toes warm  2. Red Velvet brown with White chocolate frosting  3. My favourite tree decoration

I do genuinely feel like I should be more full of Christmas spirit, however, the christmas tree is finally up and the cake is finally baked. It's my job to ice the cake so I shall have to think up some ideas before Christmas day. Also, I have 3 festice cookie tins that my mammy expects to be filled with Christmas biscuits by the time she and my dad arrive home from Venice. How exciting!!

Here are a few photos of my favourite outfits this week. The boy told me that I look like Minnie Mouse in the headscarf (haha!) but it kept my ears warm and hid my bad hair day! I'm really into shirts at the moment, these two being my favourite. I seem to be paring them more with jeans now as it is just far too cold to wear anything other than denim.
