Tadaima!

Hello there! So I'm going to London tomorrow with college for two days which should be fun! I plan to go to AT LEAST 6 museums and art galleries as well as chilling in China Town (Obviously!) and taking my friends to this cute Japanese café that I always find excuses to go to! ^^

If you follow me on instagram you can probably tell these photos were taken a while ago because I don't have braids at the minute! However if you didn't know I think you need to follow me..... (KIDDING... Maybe).
I probably do not dress practically for college since I am in the 3D room, but until I find pastel pink overalls I guess I'll just have to wear what I have! I bought my Docs (brand new) off Ebay around November and they were only £43 inc p&p! I didn't want to get the classic black so I went for purple since they didn't have any pink ones (o~.~o) and I haven't stopped wearing them since!!!
**PS if anyone was thinking about getting docs but have been told they're a killer to break in, mine weren't hard or that painful at all!**

I'll take loads of pictures and doo a post on this lil London trip with college! Since it's Chinese new year in a few days, China Town will be Liiiiivee!

For those wondering Tadaima/ ただいま , is what you say when returning to somewhere e.g home, office at work ect ect in Japanese culture, so since I'm returning to blogger it's my title!
Speak soon!

Explainations

Hey there. Words can not describe how crazy busy I have been these past few months (hence the lack of posts for the past couple months). I love art, like it's the only thing I feel I want to do for the rest of my life and I honestly can't express than enough. With college and work at the weekends, blogging has become a distant hobby that I've accidentally put right at the back of my weekly "to doo list", I know :(
This is just a post to say I AM BACK (... kind of). I really want to get back into the swing of things and be a regular blogger again. I have so much I want to talk about and share on here, I finally have found a little bit of time to quickly write this (so I apologise if grammar is a little off, feel free to correct me haha).
I applied to university last week and the stress is seriously on! Making a portfolio is so hard and takes a lot of time and effort. I'll talk about what I've actually applied for and my plans for le future another time!
Currently I'm reading a book called "Japanese Fashion Designers: The Work and Influence of Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo" and I am hooked! It is such a good read and is really helping me to have a better understanding of Japanese Fashion. I won't go into too much detail right now but to not be super boring and have nothing to show; here's Issey Miyake's 1995 SS ready to wear collection. I absolutely love it and can NOT stop watching it, truly inspirational.

 

Have a loverlee day,
