Amy Winehouse found dead... RIP

The legend that is Amy Winehouse has sadly been found dead in her apartment in Camden at 4pm this afternoon.
It's only just been released and they aren't giving much away, however, they are just saying that her death is 'unexplained' by the police.
It's no secret that Amy has had a rough road with drugs through the years, it's sad that it sounds like her addiction has got the better of her and sadly forced her life to come to an early end. She cancelled her European tour earlier this year after a performance that left people shocked, quoting that she didn't seem with it and removed from reality.
More and more news channels are reporting more information, so keep your eye out for further news..
RIP Amy you made amazing music and you will not be forgotten!

Amy now joins the '27 Club'

Tattoo's

So I've been itching for a large scale tattoo for years... Always looking for inspiration and ideas and saving images in a folder. It was only recently I discovered the perfect tattooist to do it for me as I wanted to make sure I got it right!
Not being an artistic person, I would try and explain how I wanted my tattoo done, but could never relay the information properly and as soon as I saw her work, I knew she was the one who had to do it as it was exactly what I had in my mind that I couldn't write down.

Sadly she's been booked up for a year and I haven't been able to even apply for the waiting list, however, today I noticed on her facebook she was opening up the waiting list.. hooray! So I've made my application and I'm really looking for more inspiration and ideas all the time! Plus now it will give me the boost to save as it will be quiet a large piece over 3 sections of my body.

I don't like to say what the tattoo is etc as I'm always worried people won't like the idea or judge it and then it will make me doubt the ideas I've had for years, so I'd rather just go with what I've wanted and let no-one taint my view!

While looking at more inspiration today.. this little treat came up.. this has to be one of the funniest tattoos I've ever seen...

In other tattoo news... I designed the tattoo I want to get done for me Sian and Ben, we all want to get the same one and so I'm hoping they are liking my simple design and thought behind it.. I've explained it to them, but maybe I won't to you ;-)

I'm excited I'm all tattoo crazy... I need to get something booked in!

Topshop do suitcases.. expensively!!

Vintage suitcases have been around for a while now and it's not uncommon to see people travelling with them or using them as storage units in homes.

I've always had one I've kept all my belts in and when I recently moved, I discovered my new bedroom wouldn't fit my bedside table, so instead I brought a new suitcase and transferred everything from there into it.

Whenever I go into Topshop, I always head for the 'Unique' section on the Oxford Street store, mainly because it contains the most black and baggy items, which is apparently all I seem to buy now days! When i headed in yesterday Topshop had a display of wicker vintage style suitcases they had started to sell, I thought they look nice.. until I saw the price tag... £220!! Come on !! Don't be stupid why would you spend £220 on a suitcase from Topshop when you can rummage and find some great vintage suitcases at your local charity shops??

OK - so maybe mine aren't as 'pretty' but one was £3 from a charity shop and the other £40 from Camden market, but they still do the job... don't take the p@#s Topshop!

Oh my gosh..



Oh my gosh..I disappeared (again)..This kind of post seems to become a regular thing...! I've been really crazy the last few months and so the blog got pushed aside.. I'm annoyed as I've been doing a lot of cool things I would of loved to put on here... I feel that ship may of sailed though.

I'm just back from Berlin, where I was helping out on the Motel stand again. Everything is crazy at Motel at the minute (but in a really good way) ! We had a new stand built this year which was really exciting and really made us stand out in the 'Fashion Now' section.
I've got a new camera to help me take more pictures... but alas so far that hasn't happened. I couldn't resist the call on the Berlin photo booth though!

We also just recently had the Motel London showroom launch party where we invited buyers, press, bloggers and close friends along to celebrate our move to London!
We had goodie bags with amazing treats, The broken heart DJs, WAH nail girls working their magic including lots of exclusive Motel print designs and lots of drink for all! Here's a few snaps from the night!

For any other festival goer's who went to Glastonbury, I hope you're recovering well from what was defiantly another amazing year! There was spots of rain and yes we got drenched while trying to get in, but the sun didn't completely fail us and we experienced once again some blissful weather to help us tap our toes to some of our favourite beats.

After birthday celebrations, Glastonbury and lots of fun times, I killed the bank account last month and so too this month is suffering! This month is all about saving what I can and making more money when possible... clear out and sell time I think!
What a mish mash post... it's a little how my brain is working at the moment...
