Big Hair

I've been in London for the last couple of days having a fantastic time off from uni work. Daniel Blake invited me to his womenswear event where you select a piece from his collection to have made to order.
I worked as the photographer for the event, with Andy Teo aka photocillin working alongside me as my assistant and support (and to keep me calm and functioning!) We got some awesome shots, you can see a small selection of mine here.
The event was at 'Kink' - a luscious hair salon. James, one of the stylists had 'a go at my hair!' and taa daaa! I have big hair that I actually intend to sport for the next few weeks. Thanks James x
Big hair is fabulous. What with graduating in the next few months - I don't intend to take life too seriously! Just going to work harder than ever, putting my heart into gear instead of my head and do the best I can. I'm not going to mind what outfits I end up in, or how late I am for Church ! Just going to get on and live with my big hair. Yeah :)

Lazy Baking

Takes 12mins, makes 6 good sized cookies

I unashamedly love this cookie mix, take a look in my cupboard and there'll be at least two boxes!

New Flat

I'm absolutely loving our new flat, right in the city centre of Wolverhampton. It'll be a great base for more Resa Smith work, and fantastic for my current commute to Uni.

We've just had our selection day at university, where the tutors decide who is going to showcase their work at Graduate Fashion Week. Unfortunately I am not one of the few who made it, but I'm still really pleased with the work I put forward. It was probably too commercial for how the university want to represent themselves, we joke at uni that if we'd have stuck some dead birds or meat to our work then we might have been picked. Lols
The show is in June 2011, it'll be interesting to see what my classmates achieve.

Now it's time to concentrate on Resa Smith 2011, organising a photoshoot, and writing a dissertation.

Must dash - got some cookies baking in the oven x
