Being the proud owner of a brand new shiny black Vespa, I currently obsessed with all things scoot. So whilst being off school and recovering from an extremely dodgy fall on the said Vespa, and having the time for once, I thought I'd share a Vogue shoot that made me ridiculously happy. Shot in my favorite place, Brighton, the pictures capture a beautiful scooter sexy retro kind of vibe, which is a vibe that I must work on whilst riding. Please let me excuse myself for being such a bad blogger, recently I have been extremely busy with school stuff and life stuff and I seem to have forgotten about my wonderful readers. Lots of love xxx

I recently posted about buying a head dress, for my birthday. As you may have gathered, I did not follow through with this and bought a cheap 2 feathered hairband from a fancy dress shop to go with my Red Indian outfit, for my 16th, the theme being 'When I grow up'. So, being graced with magicians, golfers, surgeons and rock stars, I can definitely say that I celebrated in style. And with my birthday present being a Vespa and an absolutely insane Fisheye Lomography camera (my new obsession) I was possibly the happiest person I know. During that week, my friends and I went to London, as part of our textiles course work to visit the Knitting and Stitching show, we're we became advertising ambassadors for Traid, whilst we recycled Tshirts to support recycling clothes and making them into new ones using all our skills. With Tshirt's slogans reading 'Son of a Gun' and 'Not for Sale', we jersey girls really made an impact.

Feel like I need some order in my life, so felt this message was so very apt right now. My dad suffered a heart attack at the weekend, and though he is recovering it definitely is a Keep Calm moment. This quote, found in a "Keep Calm and Carry On" book that I borrowed from the library, feels relevant right now. x
"twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did. so throw off the bowlines. sail away from safe harbour. catch the trade winds in your sales. explore. dream. discover."

I thought I'd do a cheeky post before i went away, as i don't want to get into a habit of leaving it too long between writing. I'm off to Cherbourg this evening, and i hope this trip to France will be as pure amazing as the last. My friend Gemma and i visited Dol De Bretagne and Rennes, at the end of July and stayed in a rather ram-shackle campsite, turned out to be the best holiday I've probably ever had, and met the most amazing people who we're planning to visit this October in London. The pictures above, were of one pretty spectacular night there. My results were average, though there was a few surprises, in Chemistry the E I was predicted was turned into a B, and My A* in Drama was definitely one to be happy about. I am also seriously thankyou to my 27 followers, you all make me very very happy! Au Revoir. xxx

-excuse the blurry, bing isnt the most reliable source for pictures. Mila Kunis, (That 70's show, Family Guy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) is Ukrainian born and 28 years old. and probably the most beautiful person ever. the top picture is what i'm going to try (and maybe fail) to copy. make up wise. wish me luck
GCSE results tomorrow, always a good one. sick feeling is creeping up my stomach, think i'd better go to bed and stop thinking about it or i might cry. oh well, see how it all goess. good luck to you if your also going to get results tomorrow, i have the deepest sympathy for you

"Tracey Emin is one of Britain’s most celebrated contemporary artists. This major survey exhibition covers every period of her career, revealing facets of the artist and her work that are often overlooked. The exhibition features painting, drawing, photography, textiles, video and sculpture, in works that are by turns tough, romantic, desperate, angry, funny and full of longing. Seldom-seen early works and recent large-scale installations are shown together with a new series of outdoor sculptures created especially for the Hayward Gallery.
Since the early 1990s, Emin (b.1963) has used her own life as the starting point for her art, exposing the most harrowing and intimate details of her personal history. Sometimes confrontational or sexually provocative, her work resonates with the ‘personal political’ legacy of feminist art while at the same time speaking to relationships in general. Disarmingly frank and yet often profoundly private, much of Emin’s art – as this show makes clear – is also animated by her playful and ironic wit.
This show features works containing explicit images and words. Under-16s must be accompanied by an adult."
