gone a little crazy for Celia Birtwell

Wow I have been away from here for a while...So I have been living in my Celia Birtwell for Uniqlo top since I bought it on Tuesday, as soon as i spotted a uniqlo in Westfields I made a beeline for the blouses, now that I look at the website I need these culottes in my life oh and the pyjama style trousers...to much love for the clothes. I have found that when I wear this blouse it does make me feel very jessa from Girls, a little bit hippie a little bit chic, that can' be a bad feeling can it?

So in other news my little brother will be turning 21 on the 31st and its kind of scaring me to think about it, especially when it only seems like yesterday he was a baby, so sunday is going to be a lovely family day of easter eggs and birthday presents, I am yet to buy easter eggs, I find the ones you buy in store to be so boring so I might make everyone easter cakes, normal cupcakes but just given on easter, ha! 

My Sister came back from her trip to New York a few days ago and she bought me the gold bird necklace I am wearing in the photos above, she said it reminded her of my bird tattoo on my wrist, how thoughtful!? It is inspiration for my secret project that I am working on at the moment, I have some really wonderful people/brands onboard with me on it, I will be un-veiling more information tomorrow in regards to the project. In regards to jewellery I have been working on a few new pieces for myself, I stopped making things for RubyRaeLove (my little online jewellery shop) because other people were creating similar pieces and it became a bit of a chore, so when I was reading something for my new project about Pamela Love I realised I had stopped creating pieces just for me, at the moment my hearts in a bit of a weird transitions show I made my little heart necklace above out of a piece of red string and a little gold heart I cut, I have missed making a mess with metal and my little pliers.

Now that work is over for Easter I have so many plans to fit into the next few weeks, you know when your diary is full you just don't know where to start? there will be alot of travelling, writing, illustrating and photography some of my most favourite things, one of the most frustrating things is I won't be able to visit one of my best friends, I have no time, breaks my heart, but we have so many wonderful plans for the future together so that is keeping me motivated and inspired. 

What is keeping you motivated and Inspired at the moment?
