Please don't leave me.

Today's blog post is about my art work for once. I have a project that I have to carry on doing over Christmas with an overall theme of Hybrids. From creating a few initial images, I came up with a theme of abandonment and the human form and because I wanted to create an installation in an abandoned building, I can't actually create it at university so I have to document it instead. These are the photos that I have so far and my lecturer liked them, but they are a bit melodramatic. I also actually want to get inside of an abandoned building so that the whole set-up looks a lot more realistic.

The model here is my housemate, Keren. She studies Dance at university and I thought she would be great for my project. She is such a lovely lady and always helps out myself and Sarah with any projects that we have to do. So thank you Keren for the help and time you gave.

Holidays are comin'

This is my favourite time of the year. I love wrapping up warm for the winter and being tucked up in bed with a hot water bottle and a film in preparation for Christmas. Over the last week or so, I've been feeling more and more Christmassy. The Christmas lights were recently switched on in the centre of Bath (which unfortunately, I wasn't able to go to), I went and did some Christmas shopping in Bristol with the boyfriend and I've also been blasting out Christmas songs throughout the house (did I say Christmas too much?)

I'm literally also counting down the days until I get to go home back to Cornwall as the last time I went was late August/early September and I miss it so much! I can't wait to see my parents and my cats (as sad as that sounds) as well as my friends who will hopefully be back from uni - I'm hoping I won't have too much uni work to do and I can chill out a bit.

As much as I love Bath, it's nice to get away for a bit, even if it only happens to be 10 miles away in Bristol. But even so, it goes down a treat, especially when shopping is involved. Here are a few pictures from the last few days...

The lights in Cabot Circus are always so nice! 

I found this the other day as I was shopping and it put me in even more of a Christmassy mood.
Catching up with some friends in the Cosy Club, Bath.

If you ever get the chance to go to Bath at all, The Cosy Club is a must. It's so nice and quaint inside and it looks over the shopping mall, Southgate, which I'll admit isn't the nicest of views in the world, but when it's summertime, it's so nice to relax outside on the terrace in the sun. Plus, they do the most amazing cherry coke floats! And at £2.50, that's not that bad either!

Not your average Tea Party.

Sorry for the late Halloween post, I've just been busy with a Graphics deadline that I finally got out of the way earlier on today. Anyway, a few days ago, we had a non-traditional tea party at our house as opposed to going out and getting wasted.

Sarah and I invited a few friends round to have a bit of food and play some games and just chill out and enjoy the company that we had. We played hide and seek in the dark and during one round, one of my friends decided to make it harder on himself by playing with a blindfold - bit of a silly idea really as he bumped into walls a fair amount!

The few extra photos are some that I took whilst I was out in Bath with Sarah exploring. I've been meaning to upload them for a while now as Sarah is so photogenic.

What did you guys get up to?

Take me back...

I've been out of touch with my blog recently and I should really try and keep this up, but I've been so bogged down with second year university work and working part-time that I literally just haven't had time to do anything - student problems!
Anyway, here are a few photos of when I went back to Cornwall at the end of the summer for a few days.

Living like a City Girl.

Also tested some photos in Black and White.

Coat - Asda
Cardigan - H&M
T-Shirt - Topshop 
Skirt - H&M
 Bag - Primark
Hat - H&M 
Belt - H&M
Necklace - Etsy
Shoes - New Look

Yesterday was my first day back at university as a second year after a lovely, long summer and my oh my did that go fast! I've been trying to get back into the routine of getting up early, packing lunch, getting enough sleep and now, trying to organise my time so that I have enough time to do all of the projects I've been given - which will be three by the end of the week! 

When I put this outfit together, I didn't actually think of it as a 'back to school' kind of thing, but when I put my new coat with it (which by the way was £16! in Asda) it all just slotted together nicely. I picked up the lovely, but slightly unusual cat skirt from H&M which I wasn't so keen on in the beginning, but now LOVE for £12 along with the yellow cardy for only £10. I also got the shoes recently seeing as my student loan had not long gone in and I was really due for a new pair of shoes. I wanted something quite neutral but there isn't a lot of neutral colours out there at the moment as it's all oranges and reds now to fit the autumn season. But I have a lot of red things in my wardrobe, so they go with pretty much everything. Plus the straps on them as well make me feel like a ballerina.

The photos again were taken by the lovely photographer that is my housemate, Miss Sarah Porteus (who is on my sidebar - check out her blog). We decided that after spending the morning or so at uni that we wanted to have a look around the town, get another photoshoot done (one that hadn't actually been taken in Bath city centre yet) and get the essentials we needed. How are you all finding going back to College/University?
