Turning my heartbeat up

I've been fairly slow on the film front since I've come to uni, I'm not sure what it is but I haven't felt the urge to take so many photos aside from on my phone, wednesday was the first time I'd even used my digital camera since moving. I really dont know why, I just dont think to bring my camera with me on trips like I used to, which is mad considering how beautiful I find the city and how much I love to take photos on nights out. 

Over christmas I even forgot to take a camera back with me to document the holiday which I've done for a few years now. I had to buy a little disposable one which was actually a god send as I was far less precious with it and brought it everywhere with me. I got the same rush as I used to getting them developed, mostly because I found a place that develops them for £3 and don't take weeks like some places (sorry boots but +£10 to wait a week to get photos developed?!)

Christmas Eve walking through along the Taff on our way to watch StarWars

Magic tinsel in poundland

Christmas Day and my brother's christmas present to our granma.

Christmas dinner with the fam, while we were waiting for the nut roast/pie thing to finish cooking and had probably drank too much,

My parents decided against buying a real tree this year and put up the two tiny plastic ones that we used to decorate as kids in a display that my mum thought was 'Very Twin Peaks'

Boxing day walk on the beach 

Photos from the night I took my bestfriend on her first night out in town.
It was a pretty eventful night of two definitely not yet 18 year old boys tagging along, not being able to find a club that was open, watching a fight break out, helping a girl who'd been punched and left with a bloody nose during the fight, assuring the police that it wasn't her fault, finally reaching the club, getting quite a few free drinks, dancing on stage, getting the bar guy's number and debating politics with strangers in the smoker's area.

Terrible photo of my friends 'family portrait' in bath after seeing the Greyson Perry exhibition so I've stolen a few off my friend's camera roll

Courtesy of my friend also called Rosie

Kind of bad photos of my amazing faux fur coat

Random photos I took in Bristol trying to finish the roll

Gowns lovely made out of lace and all the things that you do to your face

We had a scheduled uni trip to London to visit the fabric shops and as usual I didn't really put much thought into focusing on what was going on around me and didn't realise until halfway through the day I should have taken notes and maybe chose fabric samples slightly more strategically than just what I thought was pretty. Me and my friend snuck off a lot, to go shopping or see cool places and so here are the collection of two fashion girls cutting class.

We were told we'd have to research topshop for an upcoming project and I don't exactly rate Topshop so we ran off to Beyond Retro, I bought a jumper that I have so many DIY plans for, and the wonderful world of Monki, see Zoe on the rainbow staircase that reminded me of when  Dorothy first steps into wonderland.

A flower vending machine in the underground station that made me so happy

Once again we ran off, to the Tate this time to try and find some culture and inspiration.

Potato art?

This instillation was made from car bumpers and human hair, which I absaloutly adore and wish they'd asked me first because this literally looks like my shower after I was my hair.

A little traveling on the tube playlist as I did a lot of this
