August Bullet Journaling
I love the whole process and I love planning the lay out and planning my week. But, yet I do not actually follow through with the tasks or the plans i make. To be honest there are times in which I just forget that the bullet journal exists. Sometimes it feels more like a chore than a planner. Which its not meant to be at all.
I feel that just this week i finally understood how to layout my week instead of just put a list of things to do – i.e
Where as now it looks like:
- 7hrs – Till’s – work on missions.
- Plan Next week
- Project page
- Books page
- Films/tv page
- Blog Idea Dump page
- Trace&cut pattern
- Pick fabric
My to-do list is more thought out, organised and i know exactly what i want to get done that day… or at least try and get done.
I love creating and looking at my monthly calender. This way i can see exactly how many days I’m working (the little red squares) and how many days I have off and as I draw/plan the month out i can plan what my days off will be like compared to constantly feeling that I am working non stop.
I feel that I will miss a few weeks/days here and there but the wonderful thing about Bullet journaling unlike a Diary or a pre set planner you will not be wasting pages or have a half filled book at the end of the year, you can simply just carry on with the next week/day on the next page.
I’m excited to see how i fair over the next few weeks! Hope you enjoyed this little snippet into what bullet journal has been like for me these past few weeks!
Sewing patterns are the base to every garment.
Sewing patterns – you can either love them or hate them. Have too many or not enough (In my case – way too many. :p ) – Hopefully I will be able to give you a small insight into the world for sewing patterns as well as help you on your journey to finding them.
The above image is a small portion of the sewing patterns I personally own. The majority of my patterns I have collected over the years are from magazines or PDF patterns.
It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.
Getting your designs out on paper or computer.
–Part one —
I have always struggled with my illustrations and I have honestly only just found a style I am happy and comfortable with using, since I had to so many illustration to work on at uni, finding my style wasn’t always so easy as you may think – and this was mainly down to tutor’s advice – Now I use the 9 head system, some people use a 10 head – this gives the illustration an elongated and exaggerated look – where as others a 8 head. The 8 head system is the most accurate for proportions of the body.
So I have been trying to expand my designer database thingie, basically i normally stick to about 5 designers and i think it id time to change that so I have looked around at the others and mainly looking for things that will help inspire my work and me with my designs. Not coping but when the outfits are put on celebs that inspire me already and that outfit on the celebs looks amazing it helps inspire that type of style/garments/detailing I want to put into my designs and creations.
I love these heavily embellished dresses on Taylor swift, theses dresses are all about the detailing and the back of the dress creates the wow factor.
I love the red dress in the middle, it reminds me of Katniss from the hunger games with the red fire dress. It wasn’t the actual dress that Katniss wore in the film but it defiantly has this fire effect about it.
Each dress is unique with its styling and embellishments. I love the black dresses in the picture above, each very similar in detail but each very different in cut and silhouette and styling.
I think it okay to say that Zuhair Murad is becoming one of my favourite designers of all time. with my all time favourite celebrities wearing Zuhair’s dresses I will defiantly be using them as inspiration.
