c'est fini

i recently realised that i haven't post a ootd in like, ages. so here is a new years eve one. as i promised. haha, good start of the year, first promise kept! 

and btw, spoiler alert, no, i didn't go anywhere. 
and yes, this means i dressed up for scrolling down tumblr till midnight. feel free to judge me.
 yes, i am aware of the fact that my hands look like they're dead or something. yeah...
jacket - david moore
top - h&m
maxi skirt - reserved
shoes - doc martens
studded bracelet - glitter
earrings and rings - topshop

eyes - l'oreal paris, color infaillible in eternal black
lips - sephora rouge in crush
nails - manhattan, lotus effect in, eh this is disappointing, 65w

i've become good friends with my camera though this photo shoot so maybe i'll post some more ootd, like once a week? maybe? would you enjoy that? (that's not a promise!)

should i get into the 2012/2013/newyearsresolutions/etc thing?
maybe just a bit. 
firstly, let's go through the ones from last year:
-draw everyday - well, i kinda did it. i'm better but i could use some practise.
-read more - this year i've read a least 42 books. i wanted to go to the usual 50, but i just didn't manage. 2013 and 50 books, challenge accepted.
-post regularly - well, you can tell how it went. i needed 3 months to complete something i was supposed to do in one month. but i posted quite frequently, i guess. you can judge that for yourself.
and btw, even though the calendar thing didn't work out as good as i planned, i still got the 2013 one. 

this year:
-i need to work more, like work on my portfolio and stuff like that. dream is to get a scholarship in london so i need to get myself together.
-this is sort of connected to the first one. i'll blog more, because it's fun, because i like it and because i can share doing something i love.
-i should be nicer to people. probably.

yeah, this is achievable. i hope at least. 
tell me about and show me your new year. it'll be fun.

and as i am a sneaky person like that, did you fulfil your resolutions? and did you have a 'midnight kiss'? wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

i wish you all the best for new year. let's hope this 13 will be lucky!





hi, hi, hi.
i've neglected you a bit. and i'm sorry. but i really have a good reason.
as you maybe remember i'm in this thing called ib. and myp.
don't mind them, the point is that i have to do my personal project. well, it should be done a bit by now...
anyway, i obviously picked a fashion related... haven't i already... yeah i did.

so. i actually did something today. i'm really proud of myself, because now, that i have my inspiration done, i can start drawing!
and it didn't take a lot of time so that's good too. i have some pictures, post tomorrow. i'm lying in my bed and i'm just too lazy.

since i got back from london, i've just been so ready and inspired to do stuff. i don't have a clue why but i feel like it's getting better.

good timing there, life. it's the end of the year and now it decided to get better, eh.
just hope 2013 won't be as shitty as 2012.

see you tomorrow,




seasonal greetings everybody :] 
that's so lame. and overused. but isn't that what christmas is all about? 
anyway. christmas happened. that's fun, isn't it? 

i got a new sketchbook. watercolours await! 
oh yea, and some books, and sweets, and puzzles, and a homemade jam, and an owl that smells like lavender. lovely ;)

what did you get?

in spirit of christmas i want to give you a brilliant present. it's not material but i hope you enjoy. it's a recommendation. remember my friend melissa from my last post? well, she has a blog. and it's way better than mine, she actually shows some of her works :) so if you want to check that out:

merry christmas or if you don't celebrate, just a wonderful festive and wintery time!

and just one more thing:

since london i've started to use my instagram and twitter more. so if you want to follow me on that:
twitter: @mondaysfashion
instagram: @mondaysfashion

soon i'll post a few outfits. perhaps one for new years, because even though i'm probably not even going outside (i'msoalone) i'll dress up and sit on tumblr all night long. the best.




what can you do in a week?

i think that's the first post i've ever dedicated to anyone

i'm sitting in a chair, the hall is packed with people.

'can i sit here?'

'um... yeah, sure. what's your name?'

'i'm jake. but for now i'm apparently benjamin.'

'and what's your name?'


'and you?'

'cat (or is it kat?)'

and onwards goes the conversation.

this is so simple.
sure, sure, sure... costa, camden... sure.

look at us a week later. i would never think that some strangers could become friends in only a week.
now, that i've become the girl with a unpronounceable name again, i share that. now, every time i listen to florence and the machine - working on projects.
farringdon tube station - 9.30 in the morning, going with a massive sketchbook and half-asleep.
camden - just pure greatness, even in the rain (thank you so much for showing me around there!)
and finally
euston -  the station nobody remembers about, nobody knows, but it's the best one :]

thank you soo much. you made my usually single london a bit less lonely :)

i'm gonna miss you so much. in fact, i miss you all already.



btw. jake, you can have that ruler ;]


sure, sure, sure...

d. 3.
we had an illustration workshop this morning. it was pretty interesting, i got to explore some new techniques of drawing, including holding your pen like i'm retarded. i'm not, by the way :)
these are the ones i'm most proud of, or the ones that i actually like. it's one of my first tries at that, and i don't think it's all crap (this usually happens). i just need to work on that but these are kinda interesting.

d. 4.
it was like a free day. some research on your own, creating a mood board, working out the colour scheme. that sort of thing. i really enjoy gluing and cutting stuff into my sketchbook. the only problem was that at first i wasn't sure about the theme of extreme climates. but one of the tutors, john, helped me get it all summed up, and it seems to be going quite well.

i'm going to post some more pictures tomorrow. if the world isn't gonna end :) 

i can't believe a week went past so quickly. on friday it's the end of the course, i'm really sad now. i've only just met these guys but i already love them as my friends. i just really hope we're gonna stay in touch, at least me. cause i'm terrible at being friends and keeping it all, wish me luck :)




dessert star wars

so i'm now on my course. like not literally right now but in general. today was my second day.
more on that in a second.

d. 1.
i was really early. but it paid off, i got a seat and didn't have to wait for my pass (yeah, i got a student pass, i feel so professional. i even got a student discount in a shop. for a single glue but still). blueberry, she's taking a architecture course, was late. but i've met some new people, they're really nice. but i kinda feel left out, cause i'm like the only one not from there, so it's kinda weird. the course it's interesting. look what i did today:
are these photos fine? cause i don't have my big camera with me so i'm taking them with an old olympus. btw can you see a pattern?

d. 2. 
we saw the valentino exhibition in somerset house! it is really cool, even if it's little. maybe not little but i thought it will be bigger... but still, the dresses are wonderful and you should go. i took some notes and did some sketches for the small collection we have to present to class after this course. 

'future fantasy'

that should be good.

i'm going for the stars war approach, i think. got my newspapers, got my notes.

tomorrow, illustration and king's cross library.

and for the end, do you think i should tell them about this blog? some of them have blogs, but i feel like mine is a bit not really on topic...
what do you think?

btw. instagram is changing their policy, i'm still not sure but i might be deleting my account.

see you tomorrow,




guess where i am?

in a very hard bed. in a room the size of a matchbox. in a 3 floor building (lift goes only to the 2nd one). 

in london!

if you follow me on twitter or instagram you would know, hehe

fun things from today:
there is no row 13 in an airplane. 
i saw a single shoe on the baggage claim.
every man around me fell asleep as soon as we took off. with newspapers on their heads. 

tomorrow i'm gonna post some pictures :)



p.s. i't trying this new body wash from soap and glory and it's like the most amazing thing on this planet!


(a gingerbread man and a christmas tree)

today was pretty good, well is, i don't know what will happen until midnight. pretty much the only things i hate today are crowds of people and the speed my internet decides to work on [hate it].

other than my 'fascinating' stories from today, i'm slowly getting excited for christmas, or, more likely, starting to try to be excited for christmas, you follow me on that?
i wore my christmas jumper and my festive earrings and downloaded my christmas songs.
(the only thing about them is that i'm so alone...)

we're slowly going to the end of the year. i'm really glad. it is horrible. all those '2012 please be good to me' are crap...

i just want to be ok...

see you soon,





that's not actually related at all... i just like this word. and the zigzags. but that's it. i should probably title  it z end. hehe... i'm gonna die alone... jesus christ, just get on with it...

ok, bye for now :)

hope you enjoyed this series at least a bit. if you want me to do anything like that again tell me in the comments.
