Berry Bow Nails

Last week (I think) I bought a Barry M nail paint 'Berry Icecream' I really love the colour and it compliments my skin really well. I've wanted to get the Berry Ice cream ever since I got the Strawberry Ice cream but at roughly £5 a bottle I wasn't all that willing, but thankfully the price went down to £2.99 *happy face*

As its me I don't just paint my nails, I decorate them and because I'm not left handed it took me about two hours to paint my nails, but I guess it was worth it. To decorate them I just used the wooden sticks you usually get in nail sets, white nail paint and the Strawberry Ice cream paint to add some colour.

Because of my stupid camera today was the first day it decided to take some decent pictures or my nails, there a little chipped and some of the pearls fell of, but they lasted a week of wear and tear.

Here are the pictures, please excuse my awful skin (due to eczema)
 Thanks for reading this post, I hope you liked my nails as you can see my right hand is much better than my left. How do you guys normally paint your nails? any tips or questions, feel free to comment.

Holy Moly

This post is a bit late again but this is the first chance I have had to do this post.
Last week in pattern cutting we made button hole using this fancy machine that can sew letters and pretty patterns.

It's super expensive so I was a little worried about breaking it or even getting it dirty!

The actual sewing part was really easy all we really had to was punch in some settings and press the treadle and there we go a button hole.

Here are some buttons I found that i thought were pretty cute.


Thanks for reading, I hope you liked this post. I'm now very tempted to make this bracelet.
What do you think?? have you ever made any jewellery using buttons?

The September Issue

Today in lesson we watched 'The September Issue' the documentary is about he 'most power full woman in the USA - Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. 

The documentary follows the preparations for 2007 fall-fashion issue, which is the biggest issue to date. The amount of work and money that goes into one issue 
From this I have learned that I definitely don't want to work for a fashion magazine!!

but i have taken a lot from this and I will definitely be more organized and do much more planning for my work in the future.

Grace Coddington, the creative director for vogue has definitely inspired me to work harder to achieve my goals. she was previously a model for vogue and went on to work for British vogue and then moved on to America.

Her work is amazing you can see some at

One of our tasks has been to research some fashion illustrators off a given timeline and find some of our own.

I never really like doing research but I really enjoyed recreating some of their work, unfortunately I don't have any pictures from my sketch book to show you just yet as its being marked.

Here's a list of my top 5 favorite fashion illustrators I researched :

5- Stina persson

4 - Kime Buzzelli

3 - James Jean

2 - David Downton

1 - Rik Lee

Rik lee is definitely my favorite illustrator i just love the style of his work, words cant really describe how much I love his work. Some of his illustrations are like all of my favorite things put together.

Thanks for reading, I hope you liked this post and who's your favorite illustrator or artist?
