and have had something I've made appear on TV before

ok so this should of been done ages ago!!! but anyway The Clothes Show Live London

This year was my first year at The Clothes Show, I've been wanting to go for a few years but its up in Birmingham and thats just effort to get there, but this year they held one in London, So I just HAD to go
its about £40 a ticket but I must of got the ticket price back in Pantene freebee shampoo alone!
First off we watched a 45 min Fashion Show (fashions from world capitals) on the largest catwalk in London ever, and presented by George and Larry Lamb!
Theres so many places to have your photo taken and nails painted and hair done etc
I booked up to have a talk with personal stylist Natalie Robinson (who has styled Beyonce and Sharon Stone among others) and we got free Martinis its so much fun and I'd recomend it to all you girlies!! real girlie day out!
My favourite was The Style Stage where lots of fashion professionals get up and make speaches or interviews its like reading Vogue but its happening live!!
I met Caryn Franklin and designer Gareth Pugh!!
and we wandered around the stalls, the Vintage ones being my favourites obviously!!
We also got approached by BBC3 to interview us on "weird habits" so watch out for us on zee telly!
anyway, heres some pics
and me......

I've wanted it done since I was 18!
Its healing nicely now, looks a little sore in the photo but it was well worth it!
"its for you John" *she looks up*
I've had this obsession with him for as long as I can remember, well since my mum sat me down to watch Help! aged 9 and I fell in love there and then (superintendent he's got a plan, he's got a plan superintendent)

Foale and Tuffin exhibition, Fashion & Textile museum London

This was my first time at the Fashion & Textile Museum, Founded by Zandra Rhodes, since it opened in 2003
The building itself is fab, bright orange and pink certainly stands out from the rest.


We went up to see the Foale and Tuffin exhibition, Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin were young designers in the early 60's and opened up shop in 1965, just off Carnaby Street.
There were so many gorgeous dresses and trouser suits out on display at the FTM, I felt like a kid in a sweet shop, or a dog in a butchers!


It was like stepping back in time with the walls covered in pictures of Foale & Tuffin Illustrations, photos of Twiggy and Pattie Boyd, among others, and 60's iconic pop drifting through the speakers! I was in Heaven for a short while.


Here's the infamous "Double D" Dress as modelled by Jenny Boyd in 1966
and the "Domino" Dress, (the print was designed by Zandra Rhodes)
I will definitely be popping in there again, I vote Biba next time!
Keep an eye on their website to see what exhibitions they are doing next!

Photos of London, Covent Garden / Soho / Etc

I just love wondering around London with a camera, theres always something to be snapping at!
Here a few pics from my last adventure!

Preparing for Chinese New Year, which is this weekend peeps! will be going back to get more picciepics!

These cute lasses where in Beyond Retro, one of my favourite shops I got a cute vintage 50's style americana cheer leaders jumper, its to die for so cute!

The best window display I've seen in ages!

This strip joint reminded me of the vintage/retro ones of the early 60's, if this was on the Reeperbahn Hamburg then you probably would of seen The Beatles piling in!!

Last but by no means least Girlies.... Look who I found lurking around Covent Garden!!

John Lennon Nowhere Boy Film

I'm just so excited about this film its unreal!!!
I've been a Beatles fan (thanks to my mum) from birth!!! and a John Lennon fan since my mum showed me the film Help! when I was 8 years old, and I fell in love there and then!
Well this film is gonna be good I just know it, if anybody out there has read 'In my Life' by Johns school friend Pete Shotton (which by the way is my fav JL book) then this film looks just like an adaptation of that book
heres the trailer

I can see me seeing that a few time at the cinema!

well the break to Devon was amazing really didnt want to come home, we were lucky to have really gorgeous weather that week
went to the most fab place called Bygones ( which is a great nostalgic place to wonder round with a whole replica 19th century high street
set up inside with a sweet shop, toy store, ladies clothes shop, pub, bakeries etc! so adorable I felt as though I was in Oliver! the musical!
we also went to Becky falls were theres loads of waterfalls and an amazing "money tree", were you had to place a coin in, so the pixies would look after you in your travels!!(see photos)
the views are all so beautiful, living in Dartford and Chatham all my life I forgot places like this exsisted!
