I haven’t got any recent news for you this week, nothing very exciting is going on, and I’m ill so I’m actually pretty happy that that’s the way it is really, means I have an excuse to me a bit less frantic. I have a couple of leads and have applied for a couple of things, but not heard back and I guess there’s a huge part of me that is trying to hold back pinning my hopes on this job with Alamy, because it would be sweet, but the next call-back would only be for a second interview, I don’t know.
I mean it’s pretty crummy hunting for a job, and I’m articulate, creative, nice and a fast learner, among so many other things, I just don’t know what else I can do at this stage, and there will be new graduates soon and surely that’s just more competition. I just want something that isn’t another internship, and I think it’s ridiculous that that’s a pretty big ask. Still, like I said, I’m ill so I can put off worrying for a little bit.
Here are some neat finds from this week, I’m pretty sure I’ve outdone myself, there’s so much to share, and here was me thinking that I had been avoiding computers.
On Thursday, as you may have seen, Moon and I were lucky enough to catch an intimate in-store gig at Banquet Records in Kingston. As I said at the time, I didn’t want to ruin the atmosphere so only took one photo and nothing else. Luckily, Banquet were videoing, and we found this at the weekend, so I can show you how beautiful Dry the River are, especially when unplugged, so amazing, I was blown away. You can even spot Moon at the end, and me, but you have to really look as I’m a bit small.
Atalanta By Atalanta Weller Mexi V-Front Shoes, £210, Urban Outfitters
These are such beautiful shoes and there are so many reasons why, I’d so love a pair to call my own. Sadly they’re sold out of size 5s already, but here’s hoping that they’ll be around for the sale.
Lila Ice Skater Woman Necklace, £18.17, SPRITZ Design
I did a quick search and this necklace and others available from the above Etsy shop were the closest I could find the the amazing necklaces and pins that I saw in Porta in Brighton, I’m not satisfied with this find but I thought I’d share this will you to give you an idea, I hope to keep looking, until I’m able to get back down to Brighton.
The sound in this is pretty great, the whole thing is actually pretty great, but I can’t fully explain why, it’s just great.
Wooden Kite Necklace, £23, Stolen Thunder Boutique
Cool Sweaters T-shirt, $20, Threadless
Super sad that the girl version of this is sold out in my size, but how cute is it? I think that I definitely have too many animal-related clothes so it’s probably a sign, but that’s the beauty of these posts, I’m still able to admire things like this from a distance.
Orange Zip Messenger Bag, £25, River Island
I’m slowly turning into the kind of girl who’s never satisfied with her handbag, I mean, I was but then my perfect River Island bag decided to have a ‘my zips only going to work half the time’ attitude and it just makes me a little bit sad and this one is nice.
Darlingtonia Foxy Moccasins, $129, Red Velvet
Bow Tie in Pumpkin Patch, $18, Red Velvet
I’ve been thinking a lot about collars and bow ties, obviously they’re a great solution to adding a bit of life to an old outfit, and I would really like one, but they always seem to look a lot better on other people. A simple design like this could sway me, I think I might have to get Etsying.
The guy in this photo is such a babe, I wonder about it’s original source as the Tumblr I found this on is a horrible one which plays unnecessary/awful music when you open it.
House Lamp, £59.69, Hannah Nunn
Both: Layla Amber Handmade Creations, £4 each
Trust Your Instincts, £12.98, Ashley G
It was pretty difficult to pick just one print I liked as I pretty much like all of them, I was brought to Ashley G’s Etsy shop, through this week’s apparent ‘blog of the week’, A Beautiful Mess.

On the plus side of this illness, for some reason my hair hasn’t looked this great in ages. Don’t forget I’ve listed a ton of stuff on eBay, and there’s only one more day to go, check it out.
