Writing this so you can take a little look at my Motel Illustration competition entries. We had to draw our favourite Motel Outfits so I picked these making sure I picked up on some of the big trends at the moment including Monochrome. I really enjoyed drawing again. The competition closes next Monday, but there been some pretty amazing entries so I doubt I will come close but its all good experience. Everything Ive drawn below apart from the Jewellery is available on MotelRocks.com Now!
Thanks for looking x
I discovered this amazing little Aladdin’s cave a couple of weekends ago and could not believe it was right on my doorstep! They sell beautiful second hand furniture that has been revived with a rub down and coat of paint. They also have two trailers full of items in their original state to do what you like with, as they also supply the chalk paint to do it yourself if you wish.
Bringsty Vintage Living is based on Bringsty common on the A44 out towards bromyard, if your local to the Worcestershire area I would really recommend going to have a nosey! Heres their website and a link to their facebook page.

I’m having my room re-decorated this week and I’m hoping give it a little refresh so it looks less like a 16 year old’s bedroom. I have spent the last week or so pulling together some colour palettes, fabrics and furnishings that I’d like to fill it with. Heres my little moodboard… I will post picture when its all done!
a beautiful desk at home and a walk in wardrobe are my two major desires right now.
Next Year I’m keeping one of these on my desk at work and first thing in the morning a couple of days a week I’m going to write down a memory of something thats happened to me or something thats made me laugh. All you need is a jar and some post- its! Life can pass you by too quickly if you dont take time to stop and think about all the amazing things you’ve done and people you’ve met. Lets make 2013 a year to remember!

Decided to enter this Olive competition tonight cause I reeeally want that skirt! My winter wardrobe is depressing I need to update ASAP, saving for the Jeffery Campbell rumble boots as well, pretty sure I dreamt about them the other night.
A couple of months ago I was given the opportunity at work to help make some props and style the photoshoot for the AW12 collection for the childrens-wear brand FG4. The concept was based on enchanted woodland and the moodboard images inspired me to make some floral head-dresses from some silk flowers I had at home. So here are the finalised images that went live on the website on Thursday take a look here for the whole lookbook. I was so pleased that the buyers loved the head-dresses and I really enjoyed being involved in the photo shoot and the kids were so lovely to work with. Our company received a lot of praise for the final imagery from the buyers which was amazing! Some people have been telling me I should sell the headbands so if you are interested leave a comment below!!
Hello all, it’s been a busy month for me lots of fun weekends and sunny week day evenings and the olympics has meant that MissBreeze.com has been put to one side for a little while. A couple of visits to London to help friends move house, visited Westfield Shopping Centre, a long awaited catch up with my girls over some glasses of wine, BBQ’s and Shisha’s in the sun. Hoping we have a few more opportunities to get the summer dresses out before the winter boots have to come back out.
I had a very exciting day last Monday as I was assigned to style the Children’s-wear Brand FG4 AW12 photoshoot, which is sold mainly in Saudi and Dubai. I had such a lovely day working with my colleague Sophie, the FG4 buyers, the gorgeous little models and an amazing hair and make up artist who used a lot of the hairbands I had made for the shoot (she has also done actual Lewis Hamiltons make up as well – name drop haha). As soon as the photos go on the website I will post a link! I know I’m far to eager about it all! Sorry!!
Heres a few pictures from the last month or so to give a little glimpse into what i’ve been up to! Getting back on the blog over the next few days!

Once again I have failed to live up to my regular posts promise but I have a good reason as I now have a new job! As of the April 23rd I will be a photo retoucher for a company called Red Creative. They are design agency, based in Moreton on the Marsh, who specialise in the retail sector they with clients such as Liverpool FC, M&S, Apricot and George Davi FG4 brand. I was so pleased to be offered the job after I completed a week of work experience at the company in February covering a variety of areas including styling, e-commerce videos, illustration, website concepts and photo retouching. I decided to sacrifice a week of my holiday to help push my career in the direction I would like it to go and it has paid off. If you fancy a nosey at there website here’s the link. So onwards and upwards!

I treated myself to a few new rings and a new statement necklace this month. I searched for a long time for the right one and finally decided on this one from Accessorize, looks completely different in real life to how it looks on the website, tut tut! But I’m pleased with it anyway. Really want a silver one now so I will get snooping.
Two of the rings are from this amazing little shop on Etsy called Sugar Plum Stitches which turns old spoons into rings! I had to get my dad to resize them as I slightly miscalculated my ring size. The leafy one is from one of the many vintage sellers on there and was only £4! Theres loads of bargains to be had you just need to have a good old browse.
This little beetle ring is from the ASOS Marketplace. I would also really recommend having a look through the accesories section for some great one of a kind pieces.
Not sure how many people actually care whether I post or not, but to those of you who have been disappointed with my lack of posts I apologise! I am back into the swing of things now and I have lots of exciting style reports, music videos, reviews & trend guides to post about in the next fews days so stand by!
If I disappear again, check my Tumblr for clues as to what I’m doing/loving/thinking as I tend to post on that quite a bit! Thanks for reading (if you do).
I was lucky enough to be treated to a surprise trip to Paris this weekend! Heres a few of my pictures from my trip…
