A Fresh New Look

FAIIINT New Layout

You might have noticed things are looking a little different around here & this new layout has been so long overdue. I never expected blogging to be something I’d actually keep up for this long, so the first layout was pretty rushed & it was mostly a case of it’ll do for now. I promised myself I’d redo the layout for the blogs 1st birthday, but that came & went and I never found the time to do it. So, with nothing more exciting planned this weekend I decided to finally get to work on something a little more fitting.

It’s not drastically different, I just wanted something a little cleaner, more graphic & something that better fitted with the aesthetics of the blog. I seriously contemplated going for a black background (à la Le 21ème – swoon), but decided lighter was more user friendly when there’s text to be read. The most noticeable change however, other than a generally cleaner look, is obviously the huge images. Ollie’s photography is such a massive part of this blog and I felt like it wasn’t being shown off to it’s full potential in that tiny column before, so here they take center stage.

I hope you guys like it as much as I do. If you have any comments or suggestions (good or bad!) on how it all looks, I would love to hear your opinions. But especially if somethings not working right, or looks squiffy on your end, then please do let me know so I can get it fixed! I’m sure there’s a few little things I’ve missed, but hopefully everything else is in good working order!

PS: That photo up there was taken by me, not Ollie, I think he better watch out – I’m learning! Hah!

This is just a really quick post to say I hope you all have a magical Christmas & get everything you wished for!

I also wanted to say that I’m so grateful to all of you who continue to come back here & read the blog, this has been my first full year of blogging & it still amazes me to see how much it has grown in that short period of time & that’s all down to you guys! If any of you have any suggestions of things you’d like to see more of or less of around here in the New Year, I’d love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to email me, tweet me or just comment!

Also, sorry for the super cheesy Christmas photos, I just couldn’t resist! Happy holidays everyone! ♡

Blank, Pristine, White Space…

Its always the most awkward to finally put something down when everythings so pristine & unmarked, It seems the same with everything, sketchbooks I have to scribble and doodle on the first blank page to let myself feel free to let loose and be my scruffy self on the rest of the pages, even new notebooks or diaries, I scrawl random words and thoughts just to get the first clean page out of the way with. Its just so, intimidating…

So, I am getting this first post out of the way with to get rid of the intimidating blank, pristine, white space! I’m aware this makes me sound like a bit of a nutter, but I’m sure there are others, probably other scruffy, creative types, who totally get what I’m talking about. I hope? Yeah, I’m sure there is!

The blog is basically going to be my place to pour out all my inspirations / obsessions / outfits / DIY & projects, mostly for my own benefit, as a way of collecting all these things for future reference, before they fall out of my head! And also to just generally show off anything I’m particularly proud of creating, hopefully as a way to encourage myself to sew more, DIY more & sketch more, like I’ve been saying I would for the past, oh, god knows how many years.

In the next couple of weeks I’ve got quite a few little projects I’ll be posting up, leggings, a draped leather jacket I’m particularly pleased with, some salvaged Ebay shoes DIY, maybe a few illustrations & I’m going to try to do some outfit posts too, I’m pretty awkward infront of a camera, but I think it’s a great way to keep yourself constantly evolving style wise, and I’m kinda stuck in a style rut at the moment, so I’m going to try & rise to the challenge! But bare with me on this!
