I've been leaping about like a scalded for the past two weeks working every hour under the sun at Topshop as they've been desperately short-staffed during the onslaught of the sales as well as juggling a five day contract for Yelp getting paid twelve pounds an hour to write reviews on local businesses (how could I say no?) with all my university studies, Etsy and eating, sleeping and showering. Thankfully I am now free and next week will be returning to a gentle two shifts a week routine and will be able to finally start getting my life back in order. I removed and washed up eight plates, five bowls, twelve mugs, three glasses, a cafetiere and two handfuls of cutlery from my room this morning. 'Grim' does not even begin to cover it.

I was really excited to discover this morning that one of my photographs has been featured on the London College of Fashion's Arts website, Pigeons and Peacocks and I am listed as a contibuting photographer! What makes me even happier is that picture is actually one of my favourites, although I'd probably say that about seventy percent of my pictures ha. It features my boyfriend streaked with sunshine and the lighting is just so soft and lovely. Take a look here.

This little film is just a pure joy to watch. It's called 'Lost Things' and is directed by Angela Kohler and Ithyle Griffiths. Quite simply, it's stop-motion animazing. (Ho, ho, ho...)
In other news I've just painted my nails the perfect shade of spearmint green and am preparing for an early night before my 9.30am pick up tomorrow morning. I'm going to Norwich for the day with Jian Wei and his cousin and although the principal purpose for the trip is for aforementioned cousin to visit the University of East Anglia as a potential student, I just cannot wait to get stuck into the massive charity shops that line the road leading from the bus station. They're beasts, the sort that sell sofas and wardrobes and have whole walls stacked with shoes and handbags. I'm actually salivating at the thought of all the potential etsy stock / wardrobe fodder just waiting to be rescued. (I'm also planning on hitting Cambridge on the Wednesday for precisely the same reason so will have to be particularly selective to ensure my bank balance will stretch as far as I'm planning it to.)
Tomorrow will also witness an obligatory visit to my favourite restaurant in the WORLD, 'The Waffle House'. It's truly just incredible and I'm planning on having mushrooms sauteed in soy sauce with a Lancashire mature chedder sauce on a savoury waffle accompanied by the most delirium-inducing coffee milkshake.
Watch this space to see what my trawl brings up!
