I've had a very very busy couple of weeks so please excuse the lack of updates!

Had my final hand-ins at uni and had VERY good feedback about my work so I'm extremely pleased as you can imagine! Also, Joe took me to Barcelona at the weekend and we had such an amazing time and had the BEST hotel. I can definately recommend Murmuri on Rambla de Catalunya if you go to Barca; amazing customer service (our room got upgraded to one with a massive terrace!) and they do a mean cocktail.

Had a great time jus chilling out, sightseeing and spending time with my boy as we hardly ever get quality time like that together!

I'm off to London on Sunday to start my job at ELLE on Monday! Doing a 3 day induction and then I had Graduate Fashion Week and REVEAL exhibition at my uni so starting work properly at the end of June for a couple of weeks before my sister's wedding and then back working in August.

So, please do remember to come to GFW to see my work! It's on 6th-10th June at Earl's Court 2 and I'm on the Northumbria University stand.

Ooh also, I've bee featured on the beautiful The Last Miaow blog, which has up some pictures of my work!

So, my final hand in for all of my work associated with my BACKSTAGE book are next week; final promotion and logistics booklets have been sent to print, along with some portfolio sheets.

This is available through my website (which isn't working properly...can't figure out why....) but here it is again: the video of my book, showing page by page the layout and photography.

Had some lovely comments already about the book and looking forward to getting all my hard work marked!

I will be exhibiting at Graduate Fashion Week at Earls Court 2 from 6th-10th June, so come down to Northumbria University stand and see all the hard work from us lot on Fashion Communication, and also Fashion Marketing and Fashion Design.

Will also be showing at the REVEAL exhibition at Northumbria University Design School from 17th-25th June, so if you're up in Newcastle it's definately worth a visit.

Aaaaand my final bit of news is that I'm the new Bookings Assistant at ELLE magazine! Technically an intern position, but I'll starting at the end of May and then taking on the role properly in June/July for a couple of weeks and then starting properly in August. VERY excited! Although have to find somewhere to live ASAP.

If anyone needs a flatmate, let me know!

A week in bed....

So, this week, I've been in BED all week with chickenpox, which has been an absolute nightmare for my work (only 2 weeks left until my university final deadlines and I still have so much work to do!).

Luckily feeling alot better today after my boyfriend looked after me and brought me nice DVDs to watch, some percy pigs and some AMAZING headphones which I've wanted for ages (see here).

SO, today, I finally got round to sorting out my studio images of my Backstage book! Took them last Monday, the day the chickenpox started! Didn't actually realise I had them until I got home after this session.

Really pleased with the studio pictures! Also did a little video which I have just finished editting but cannot find for the LIFE of me some good music to go with it! I want something quite trip-hoppy but fast and relevant. Have been scouring iTunes and Spotify for something cool but NOTHING has taken my fancy as yet.

Still lots to do this week. Lots of bits and bobs to send to print for the final hand in, but having to get my mum to help me with alot of it as can't leave the house due to chicken pox until Friday so mum will be trailing things up to the printers for me, poor Mum!

Any opinions on the book would be great :)
