The Big Day – The Degree Show

I should have posted this 2 weeks ago, that was our degree show, attracting thousands of people, occurred. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did. It was a big night for every art student, being the result of our three years study. 3 years I now feel went by like a blink, so quick. A lot of joy, excitement tears. When I look back, it was a truly valuable  experience, we inspired each other and we learnt from each other; we went for coffee together, the laughing, the arguments… When the time came close to the Degree Show, we all felt a bit lost – Was this the end of our journey? And this is life. It was also the beginning of our new journey! Whatever I do, wish me good luck! 🙂

My art work ‘Unpredictable’ is of a political theme and reflects the uncertainty of our future and unpredictable relationship across the world since Trump became the US President.

My outfit also caught a good few glances attention, in particular my little ‘bin bag’ which I bought from ‘TIGER’ stationery shop but painted some flowers on to match my shoes.  Art is about being creative, and so is fashion!

It was a great evening and marks the finale of another page in my life. Whatever story I write on the next page, wish me good luck! 🙂

Have we taken it for granted?

I have always sporty and fit. 3 days ago, my right knee went. It was painful to do such simple things as bend over and lasted for two days such that I could not go to spin class. This made me realise how important it is to have a healthy body, without which you cannot go for long walks, you cannot go to the gym, you cannot enjoy life. When I imagine how life would be if I cannot do sports, I wonder if I have taken my body for granted? Yes, it’s time to look after my body and appreciate the freedom and pleasure it brings me as you can not enjoy life if your health gone!

Fashion Doesn’t Has to Be Expensive!

The key to it is that you know what suits you and how to mix and match. This outfit has three accessories from PRIMARK: hat, shoes and bag! It worked out beautifully! Sometimes people try to hide the brand as it is not a big label.

It was a beautiful sunny day last Sunday and I chose a loose old styled Chinese dress which I bought in China last year but never had chance to wear.

This dark emerald green is quite dominant and I actually have matching boots. But as it was a warm day I decided to wear these slippers, with fur around the heal, which are quite in this season. It looks like I’ve got hairy feet :). To be honest they were comfy to walk around beautiful village.

Also I matched up my outfit with a scarf in the same tone. One thing I learnt from Uni studying Fine Art and painting is how to play with colour. Art and fashion compliment each other, which is why I enjoy both of them so much. My light green earrings played a big part in this outfit.

I used desire big labels. Like many women I  would sometimes spend too much on one piece and only wear it once or twice. It could then go out of season or I would get bored anyway. So I started to mix my old clothes with some new and found my own style. I started to recycle my wardrobe I found out how amazing it can be to re-style and re-mix. To my surprise I discovered that there are so many ways mix and match. I could have different outfit every 365 days! Exciting, isn’t it?! 🙂

I get so much pleasure from it. Fashion is what you buy, style is how you wear it.

So if you read my blog, you can try it too. Be bold, be creative, be revolutionary!!! There are so many ways you can play with your wardrobe to get a new look. Finally, I learnt that fashion doesn’t has to be expensive!

Walking around this pretty village wearing a pretty comfy dress and shoes made my day!

I wish I could bought some free range eggs, but they had all sold out 😦  The pink petals on the ground were so pretty. This is an old village with some historic buildings like this old school gate.

It is only small place and after half an hour I had seen it all. Then off to a local pub to sit outside. It was such beautiful view. So many different shades of green and the sight of children running around freely.

Life is beautiful, I really can’t complain! I hope you will find your style as you go along. Believe me this does lead to happiness!

I lost my studio today :(

I felt so sad today as I lost the studio I had been sharing with other students for the last 2 years.

It’s been a busy day but after a few hours work it was all cleared out. Some art works had to be binned which was a shame given that we all spend hours making them with passion and faith.

This is the end of our journey and the beginning of our new adventure! I supposed this is life. We think we own something and then we lose it. We have made friends for life. I wonder how many of us will keep in touch here on after?

I have gained confidence as an artist and changed a lot in the last 3 years. I have made some good friends, learned more skills and above all, I have grown a lot as person. I love art and I have a passion for  fashion.  For me, holding onto this passion for life is important. To be innocent, adventurous, curious and above all else, happy!

I’ve never grown up, but I will never stop growing!

I love the Univeristy of Northampton and I’m already missing my studio, which is weird as we will be having our Degree Show here in 3 weeks! Scary and excited!

Welcome to my blog :)

This is my first blog, don’t know what to say…

Tomorrow going to be my last uni day of the university of Northampton, I feel weird, I am not sure it is release or lost? It has been incredible journey. I met so many people and made some good friends for life, here, where we share the same passion of art.

I could not believe myself 3 years ago, but I made it!!! I will graduate in July for BA Fine Art, I am really proud of myself as a mature student and particularly because English is not my first language, it is difficult when it comes to writing art theory and dissertation.

We will all have to give up out studios where we messed around and grew for 3 years, what is the next step? I do not know yet! But I am looking forward to finding out…….
