Autumn from the inside

img_2747IMG_2748.jpgAutumn is the season where the weather turns cold and crisp the sky are big and blue and the leaves turn a golden colour,  an art students dreams come true. But as much as I love walking outside in Autumn, I also love the feeling of going into a warm cosy cafe after a walk outside. There is something truly comforting about that warm air that hits you and that smell of freshly made baking and coffee, peering outside at the beautiful autumn landscape from the comfort of your cosy spot inside the cafe. Today was a particularly satisfying day as the contrast of the cold outside with the warmth inside created a beautiful condensation on the windows which gave a mysterious, more abstract look to the outside, and a comforting reminder that you are sheltered from the coldness of outside.

Expressing your inner Chinese dragon

 

Every year Chinese New Year comes around and you don’t have to be Chinese to celebrate it. This year is the year of the snake, 10th February 2013. This year I went along, hoping for some inspiration. What particularly caught my eye were the elaborate colourful dragons. I wanted to incorporate them in to fashion. I wanted women all over the world to express their inner Chinese dragon.

Around the world in 28days

Tomorrow I leave for an unforgetable trip to the other side of the world. I’m off to Australia and Hong kong for 28days.

I’m on the search for fashion inspiration, eyes peeled, camera charged at the ready for blogging material. Will search high and low for free wi-fi and internet cafe’s.

Wish me luck!

Me hypnotised by my new blogging book

Tesxtile inspiration

It was certainly beautiful but with some unexpected weather, me looking like a goth wishing i had used waterproof mascara.

It consisted of curling up by the fire in country pubs and running through sandy beaches. We went to Anwick castle and got soaked, we weren’t prepared for the water fountains, coming out looking like a drowned rat!

But blown away by nature, I found it hard to narrow down the pictures to use, but here is a taster of the secret beauty of Alnmouth:
