Pic & Tunes

November 27, 2012

Well long time no see to all you dedicated TOAS readers! Its been another stretch of crazy time for me but I’ve FINALLY got my act together, my whiteboard sprawled on and my fingers-a-tappin’
Pic & Tunes this time around although a short post is all going to be about my well deserved holiday to Barcelona with my lovely boyfriend a couple of weeks ago (of which every minute was amazing) and as I was dedicated to uploading every great moment and gaudi building on to my instagram I thought I’d posted them all here as I’m quite impressed with some of them if I do say so myself.
And for the ‘tunes’ part of this post.. a little old one hit wonder to hit those dreamy holiday notes won’t go a miss!
Check back very soon for some interesting articles on a couple of brands I’ve found and love. They’re set to be gooduns and are so nearly nearly completed!

Pic & Tunes

August 16, 2012

Its been a whole year since graduation and for me and most of my friends its been quite an up hill struggle. Not to delve too far and get this blog into a political debate, I think that the people of the UK can safely say it’s not been the best of economic climates and so being a young graduate trying to start a career in a wealth of un-employment is harder than ever. But with a cocktail of determination, commitment and constant hard work alongside personality, positive work ethic and solid portfolio this eventually turns into that first stepping stone one of which most of us are on, and hopefully one we will all stay on which is a very exciting prospect!
So in honour of this very important start and a whole year of non-stop development, me and a couple of friends figured it was time we had a well deserved holiday! I’m so excited as I don’t remember the last time I really felt like I’d got away and although nothings been booked.. one place we were thinking of going was Bulgaria as its one of the top holiday destinations at the moment. So this pic and tunes is obviously all about holidays, travel and new discoveries.. with the video of Hard-Fi’s “Fire in the house” which if you hadn’t already guessed was the inspiration behind yesterday’s outfit post title, and one of those rock bands from teenhood which I’ve got back into recently.

Stylish ski wear

November 27, 2010

Ever since I was young I’ve been very lucky to be able to learn how to ski going on ski trips every year with my family and family friends all across europe, and when recently after speaking to my close chum and housemate Cassie about the possibility of doing a ski gap year, the only thing that kept creeping into my mind (other than resorts and adventure) was the D&G Ski wear collection.

After going online and gawping at this amazing fair-isle print A/W 2010 collection, especially the amazing woollen onsie, I then discovered the limited edition D&G ski mask covered in more than 2,500 Swarovski crystals!

Although I think they are quite over the top and with practicality being a slight fail due the mere thought of one of those stones being damaged after a nasty ski fall would make me cry a little.. I still think they’re absolutely show stopping and are a great flamboyant asset to the snow season.. but unfortunately I think they’ll only be appearing in my dreams :(

Happy Holidays

July 27, 2010

Sorry for the lack of posts but I’ve recently been to the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca with my family and boyfriend for a nice relaxing holiday by the sea, mainly to try and cool down before my busy time back in the UK getting projects and my life sorted before I start back at university.
I thought I’d share with you a few little snaps from my Holiday and an AMAZING picture of sofa that was in the apartment where we were staying, I was considering trying to steal it in preparation for my own flat one day but I don’t think it’d would fit in my suitcase ;(
I will be doing more posts shortly on what I’ve been getting up to and a few little things i’ve recently purchased/been given!
