So I have been in sunny old Ireland the past week, little did I know how hard it would be to find connection there. I had left one of my girls to post off my necklaces to the winners but had an emergency of her own, so can my winners email me again ljocullen@gmail.com and I will sort it for you, apologies for the waiting. This has been my first day off and it looks like it's going to be a pyjama day so here's last nights outfit

phew, well it's good to be back, it's been too long. I know now for next time though what my connection situation will be like in another country.

So I need help in what I should wear to a black tie event. It's Friday so quite last minute. I'd just appreciate some links to some dresses that would suit long black hair with pale light skin. Not for a redonkulous amount either please.
Can't look out of place here http://www.amikalondon.com/ as this is where the party is.
Any photos of your evening gowns? Any experiences of your black tie events to share?
So I hardly ever share where I got my clothes from, the reason being ALOT (much more than I thought) is vintage/thrifted/mothers. Here my boring sandals were from Peacocks £10-ish? The shirt was coast I think, but 10 years or so ago. The shorts were my mum's black jeans when she was my age! So almost 25 years old or something.
Anyway off I go, I'm going to look through the various looks sites point me in some direction of what to wear tomorrow X

Vintage bombardment

This is my contribution to HYPEED's age of vintage competition. This is the only contribution I've made still getting the hang of that site.

Everything here is vintage excluding the shirt. Well I say vintage, 90's count now right? Im speaking about the cardigan and skirt. The top is 70's I cut it down from a long dress. The locket is 40's and have no idea about the bag.

So I am shamefully awake at 2.54 am. I am shattered so off I go to bed. Do you do your blogging and look posts at night too?

So these are the neckalces I got through the post for my giveaway. I was expecting 5 necklaces but have three and one bracelet (bottom right) but the tassel necklace which if you scroll down you can see is still part of it.

So you know what to do to be in a chance with winning, email me ljocullen@gmail.com stating what makes a good blog and your name will go in a hat and I will draw the winners Friday the 13th and it will be announced right here. Thanks for those who have already entered please could you tell me what name to write on the entry as some of you that have entered have crazy screen/user names!

My friend made and shot me in this shirt. It is circus/clown inspired until the bottom got burned and sliced off the bottom so this is us trying to be 'edgy' with the whole crop thing. Don't worry I didn't wear this out.

This is my gut trying to be held in! Tomorrow we start the workouts! Wish me luck, any tips welcome! X

Sleeping until 10pm

Awful, it's so bad. I can't be the only one. Having to wake up earlier than the body can handle to do something during the day, coming home and collapsing into bed, then waking up at 10pm at night before work the next day!

What I got up to is a long story and not exciting unless I provide images which I don't have (yet)

In the meantime I willl show you some images of the competition I entered. The prize is a bursary towards couse fees of a fashion related course.

The entry brief

My moodboard, inspiration, design

Techincal drawing, samples, the boring part

And this is an outline of who would wear the design with some key words

...most of us have done it right? Something we want that multiple people can get for us but is quite difficult so we maximize our chances by doing a handwritten SPAMFEST to our contacts!

Here is my attempts to gain employment. I do work doing admin and some PA duties on a Monday and it is well paid for what I actually do but it's not enough for me to live properly, just sustaining me you know what I mean.

So I am applying for the usual retail sales positions in most of my favourite stores, alot of my friends just hand in their CV's/resume's to the stores on foot. I just wouldn't be able to stand the snooty sales assistant face as she patronizingly says "I'll pass that on for you" so I've decided to mail them instead.

So I am a student trying to get a part time position. What's your situation? Do you work full time part time? Are you studying like me? Are you face to face with the public everyday or behind a computer screen?

I also want to know if anybody has had success with this blanketing/spamming method. I've done it before on emails and have got a few responses but it would just be no's. However I did look for someone once and found them doing this. So I'm just curious, let me know...

Hello there

Greetings! You are reading this being new to my blog, as you can see there is previous content I have been submitting, this is just because it's a bit better to have something to look at as opposed to just HI! SEE YOU TOMORROW! or something.
Amoung other things, in this blog you will see the life of a girl who designs jewellery, models part time, goes to fashion school, wanabee actress, is a part time personal assistant to a therapist of all things.
I am planning on documenting my day-to-day life, do a few 'how-to's', the common favourite 'street style' and hopefully I will be trusted to give advice! Oh yes and of course giveaways.
Speaking of which..
5 necklaces to give away! Email me on ljocullen@gmail.com explaining to me what makes a good blog and I will put all your names in a hat and announce the winners here!

Blog friends..

Punk ya

Today I am welcoming everyone to my blog! I am giving 5 necklaces away. I want you to email me ljocullen@gmail.com or msg me on any of the other forums outlining what makes a good blog and I will put all names in a hat and post the winners here Friday 13th!

Tassel necklace give away

Okay well I need to wash my hair and get ready, I need to get a skin test done at Toni&Guy on facebook trying to find some company. I'm going to be getting a 'gloss' ? As part of a hair show I have no idea what that is, hope it's not to extreme!
Ciao for now
