New York, Fashion Week

2nd month into the year and one of the major fashion cities has already hit 2013 with a bang.Everyone from everywhere came to New York to enjoy the world of fashion.And Iv found a few of those people off a popular source (www.companymagazine.com)…if you may know 😉
I would categorise these looks as casual with a little something extra, just to make it just abit different and unique.So here they are:

CHATTER BOX:February

CHATTER BOX, is a new section to my blog where each month I will talk about a specific thing! This is just purely for me to blabber on with myself ,and just hope that you enjoy reading what I have to say !

At the start of each year you here people say ‘new year, new start’ and this year I just have a feeling it is going to be my year! I don’t know how (really I don’t) but I just feel this year is going to be a good one.Im happy, and the people around me are happy.
What more could I ask for?
So I’v thought to myself just think positive, and go into things with an open mind.And just get the best out of life because you may already know this …but if you don’t I just want to tell you….’You only live once!’.

Just think to your self, is there anything I can do to improve my way of thinking and how you go about things, because when you do you will feel a lot more happy and confident within yourself!

Bits and bobs

Hiya for the first time in probably like a century.Im not gonna say sorry for not blogging regularly but I have just found myself putting it off, firstly because I have nothing to blog about and 2 well there is no to.The only way I can describe my absence is being here there and everywhere doing bits and bobs.iv been thinking about taking a new approach to blogging and just thinking of doing everything that’s comes to mind, and trust me that’s a lot.
2013 is a new and a new start and a new approach to my blog.So I’m thinking of tweaking it a little bit:)
You’ve probably not missed me that much , but if you might of (just a little bit) then I’m sorry, and hopefully in the next few weeks I will be blogging a lot more 😉

Capture the moment

I have always been fascinated with this type of imagery, because its so interesting of how technology today has advanced so much to capture these brilliant photographs.the images that are below are by a man named Alan Sailer, he has used little explosives or bullets, to capture the great movement of these ‘exploding’ objects.He has taken any old object and basically ‘blown’ it up !!! But in the meantime has got some detailed action shots!

Cracks in the wall

This simplistic art really captured my eye.The reason for this is because of how simple but effective it is, less is more.I think because of the choice of colour they all really compliment each other, making the piece look soft.The way the blotches of colour are modelled together it forms a sorted of pointed shape, which also looks like a crack is forming on a wall.In addition with the soft colour in the background it really makes the foreground stand out!!!

A Woollen mess

All over the world potholes are a problem!
But, we don’t really think much of it, whereas a woman called Juliana Santacruz Herrera does !
One day she just couldn’t handle it anymore, and she decided to do something about it.And she thought of a creative solution to fill in the potholes.So she thought to knit, yes knit !!!
She has filled every pothole she has come across with bright colourful wool to liven up the street and put a smile on people’s faces.

Lips are an art

Lips, who would of thought ?
Well, a woman called Natalie Irish did !
This woman is genius, she has used something very personal and practical to make beautiful art.The portraits are presented in such detail and simplicity.And I think that’s what makes the idea of the method of creating the piece so amazing.It makes me want to get out a lipstick and paper and make something (obviously not as good).Basically this woman is so resourceful and imaginative.Please just admire the art as much as I did!
She has really made her mark 😉

Layer, after layer, after layer!

Hello world of bloggingness, you know when it comes to this time of year its compulsury you wrap up warm because you never know what type of weather your going to come across throughout the day !

Well, who says you cant layer and be fashionable at the same time?

I dont think anyone really…

so many designers have took it upon themselves to create beautiful layering pieces, that can look great whilst be all nice and warm.I have to say personally, I have loved the idea of getting quirky, different pieces and layering it up with a coat or jacket.Over winter i have observed that mnay other people have loved the idea to!

I think it brings out the adventurous, creative side out of everyone.So just try it !!!
