staycoolcushion1 stay cool and chill out

With just 5 days left until I move back to Huddersfield to complete my fashion degree, I am starting to think about how to personalise my bedroom in the student halls. I love this part of September, filling my room with thrifted nik naks and photographs of friends from home.

This weekend my sister moved to Blackpool for her first year studying Photography. She picked up this quirky cushion for her new room from than none other than her local Primark store, for a bargainous £3.00! I think I’ll be heading there myself this week to bag this cushion for myself too; I’m sure the ‘STAY COOL AND CHILL OUT’ mantra will help get me through the stressful year ahead!

hanger2 how to: inject a little fun into your wardrobe

I love to see gorgeous wooden hangers in a wardrobe. They seem to make my clothes looks lovelier and make hanging clean clothes away less of a chore. I wanted to make my wardrobe more personal by putting some designs onto my wooden hangers, and here is my first attempt. I’ve always been partial to a polka dot or two! Why not inject a little fun into your wardrobe? I think I’ll be adding a different design to each hanger tonight to match the outfit that hangs from it!

bunting crazy

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Today I had a go at making my own bunting as part of the SOTR accessories range. I used a mix of various scrap fabrics, vintage buttons and cotton bias binding, and a few hours later, ta-da! my first bunting!
