let it snow!

I don't have much snow where I am, but it snowed a bit the week before last and it's going to snow again soon. I think it would just be so awesome for there to be a white Christmas!

Here's some snowy photos from flickr for inspiration:

back then

10 days till Chritmas...

I actually took this about two months ago but i decided to edit it yesterday. I don't normally use textures in my photos, but really like how they look in photos so I am going to try to use them more. (It's not a very Christmasy photo I know...:/)

raspberry and vanilla

Well, it's been ages since I last posted (almost a month :O) which is because I have been really busy with revision for my mock exams.

Anyway I haven't got round to taking any new photos, but I have edited some old ones

things i love

Happy first of November! The day where I eat lots/all of the Halloween sweets that we didn't get to give out yesterday.

I LOVEEEEE these boots from Office and can be found here. They are just what I want, but sadly... they cost £95 and for me that is a lotttt :( but I can still hope that soon I will wonder into that shop and see a pair in my size on sale for like £20 :D Yeah that would be great! A bit unrealistic though :P haha

I have recently discovered frankie magazine. I haven't bought anything from their or their magazines before, but I have a few things on my Christmas list :D If you haven't already, have a look on their website and the things they have in their shop, it is all so wonderful :)

Creature Comforts is such a cute blog! Here you will find inspiration for all kinds of art! Also there are some really lovely tutorials for all sorts of things to make from digital award ribbons to repurposed magazine Christmas trees!!

Andrea Joseph is an extreamly talented artist who draws bascially anything and anything using pencils and/or ballpoint pen. Have a look at her work as you would not believe some of them are drawings, they are just so fantastic! I am always finding myself just looking through her work.

Cake with giants is full of lots of adorably cute and beautiful illustrations and designs. I love her style and can always find inspiration on her blog.

botanical gardens

Yesterday I went to the botanical gardens, which was just so beautiful. I took loads of photos, I'll post some of them on here, not all on this one post though, as there are so many of them!

You may remember the art coursework I was moaning about a few weeks ago?? Well I handed it in (I got an A*!! :D) But now we've found out that we have to do ANOTHER one for our mock exam in November. AND I have to do loads of revision for my other subjects :( SIGHHHHHH! :/
