Inspiration: Movies, McQueen, abstract painting...

The last couple of weeks have been really strange and hard to handle, i'm not sure what it was but I think I'm out of it (for now) which is good. Anyway, hello! My blog has been shoved to the side since I've moved to Leeds which isn't a suprise since I have so much uni work to do. Even when writing this I can't help but think about all the shit I should be doing instead of updating my blog. Like updating my uni blog for instance, which is more important but takes more motivation to actually start because my head is all muddled and everything I've done seems to merge together which is really unhelpful. 
Trainspotting (1996 )
Alexander McQueen, Joan of Arc A/W 1998
Movie watching has multiplied as films always make me feel good and really inspired. I really love the story telling and how it's all combined with sound and music and colour and these characters you can love, hate or empathise with. How can people not like film? HOW??? I watched Filth (2013) the other day starring James McAvoy and wow that hit me hard in the heart and gave me so many goosebumps. (Everything about it is scary but his acting was on point.) -- I just like concepts. Alexander McQueen is one of my favourite artists/designers and when I would say that at interviews they would ask me what pieces I liked, and I agree that his clothes are gorgeous, but the ideas he puts into them, the story he tells and the way he puts on a show is the thing I really really love. Hard to explain when some people don't get it. This has been on my mind a lot recently and I don't know why.
I'm really loving textured abstract stuff at the minute and artists from the 18th century. Trying to paint more (like actually paint, not just for marks) but it's still not for me because I don't have the patience. ((trying not to give up.))

The christmas market in Leeds | I bought a christmas jumper... too early?
Before I got to uni I thought I knew myself but now I'm here there's so much more. What I do know is that I am a good person no matter how many times I think I'm not. And I love living by myself, cooking new things and putting my clothes in the wash without the powder. (I actually did that last week which is really embarrassing.) I can't wait to go home though, but first I have a trip to Edinburgh and then a trip to Amsterdam to get through... I am going to be so tired from all of the travelling but it will be worth it!


  1. You are just the cutest.
    Films are the most important thing for me for inspiration. And yeah, going to college just unlocked so much in myself and I discover more all the time. College marked this weird beginning of a journey I still haven't figured out. But you seem like you are handling it all beautifully and with plenty of inspiration.


  2. Movies are indeed inspirational, but there's such a vast sea of them that I often find it hard to fish out the amazing ones. Have you any suggestions? :)
    And that festive sweater looks darling on you! I've never had a wintery Christmas and just the notion itself of relishing in a cosy, oversized sweater on the day seems too good to be true.
