cakes and illustrations

So i dont often blog about fashion, becuase i do find there is alot out there and im not to sure how to approach the subject im a bit of a geek, who does often get told that i am fashionable but i dont really consider myslef to be, but the other day i did come across a fashion designer that caught my eye, her name is Erin Featherstin i cant really remember how i came across her but her clothes are so wonderfully elegant. They are beautifully constructed i love looking at fashion creations. These are from her fall/winter 2010 collection I really love the coral colour dress with the tiny net detail.


 And i also discoverd that she fashioned up LU biscuits her illustrations are absolutely adorable, aswell as you know my wonderful followers that i love fashion illustration and just seeing what other illustrators and fashion designers and doing is such an inspiration. I dont find myself overally fashionable but i can live my dreams of being fashionable through my illustrations.


 The other day i got asked to do a commisson that i am really excited about and i cant say really anything about it but i am really excited it has renew my energy and made me think maybe i could spend the rest of my days creating drawings and beautiful things for people and companies.

So i have been working also on a new recipe book, written and illustrated by me, its still in it early stages but i thought i would let my wonderful followers know first. This Book is my inspiration as well as good old Jamie oliver, the recipe book will be about vintage recipes, its great even thoug i live in london my parents have 4 allotments and we never ever have ready meals so i am learning from my mum, you will find within my cookbook, macarrons, cakes and tea.
