New Hair

I added some black streaks to my hair, because I thought that the solid pink ( a base of atomic pink, made a bit redder with a mix of la riche rubine + flamingo pink) was making me look peaky. It also handily disguised my rapidly growing roots. I'm pleased with it.... Read More...

Pancakes!

The 24th was Pancake Day here in the UK. You traditionally make pancakes to use up all your indulgent bits before Lent. I'm not at all religious, and I don't give anything up for Lent, but I always make pancakes.... Read More...

Women’s Zinefest

At the end of January I had a stall at the Zine Fest at the women's library at London Met Uni in East London. I was horribly late, as it seemed almost every form of transport I could possibly use was closed for engineering works that weekend, so I ended up having to walk from Monument to Brick Lane to get there. I had a ridiculously huge table to myself in this cosy little library, and I made quite a good bit of money and did some shameless promotion of the Brighton Zinefest.... Read More...

Panda Eyes

Hot Silk Pockets are my friend's band, and they're ace. I often get phases where there's only one song I want to listen to. Their song Panda Eyes was the only song I could listen to last week.

A wander along the beach

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to trawl back through forgotten photos on my hard drive/negatives folder and post-process them. This was one of the first untouched folders I found. Back in September, I went for a walk along the beach along Hove Lawns, right up to Portslade. It was a beautiful day, and there was hardly anyone about, because it was the middle of the week, and the tourist season had pretty much finished.... Read More...

Knitting Ahoy

When I was back home visiting my family in Kent, my friend Tukru came round and she fixed my issues with circular knitting, and we learnt some lace knitting patterns out a book my nan gave me. My mum laughed at us, and said we were very rock and roll. I won't show my lace sampler I made, because it looks really weird, but here's a stitch I learnt out of the book after my friend went home, it's very simple, and looks very 70s when knitted in chunky wool....
