Winter Nail Art

Hello everyone! I wanted to do an outfit post today but my brain has been overloaded recently with revision for mock exams, so instead I thought I'd share some nail art and then it's back to the books for me.

The first design are my current nails and I used my new nail striper for the design. Before that I just made do with toothpicks, which is how I did the last two designs. The snowflakes took forever!

You turn around and you don't know where you've been

Coat - H! By Henry Holland, Shirt - Brick Lane, Skirt - H&M, Shoes - Philippines

I was wandering around central with some friends yesterday. It's nice to just walk around aimlessly sometimes and find things you've never seen before. For instance, we saw this fence that had lights which changed colour which was pretty cool. It wasn't all aimless wandering though, we went at an arcade, had some yummy food in China Town and got some shopping done too. Pretty much my ideal day out!

I went with flats since I guessed we'd be walking quite a bit. You can't really see since they're a bit blurred in the picture, but they have a zebra print that also goes around the sides. I paired my blue shirt with my favourite skirt and threw on my new coat since Winter is finally here. I'm not a huge fan of Winter but I have to say November is awesome, which I'm not just saying because it's my birthday month.

I'm an artist! Well sort of

Yesterday I helped out with CreateVoice's Friday Late event 'Creativity in the City'. CreateVoice is the V&A museum's youth collective where we take part in workshops and plan events for young people. Last night we had a screen printing workshop, a film project, a silk painting workshop that I helped out with and lots of other things going on. We had our own workshops before the night to learn how to silk paint so we would know what we were doing. And the best part of it was that our work actually got displayed in the museum!

For part of the night we had to stand in front of our work and talk to passers by about it and the events happening. There was a lot of awkward smiling at strangers, and my friend did a much better job than me with talking to people. We did have some interesting conversations though, and there's now a man from South Korea with a video of me speaking terrible Korean on his camera.

It was a fun night but now I'm looking forward to our next event: the Fashion Festival! It's for people aged 16-24 interested in a career in the fashion industry or who just love fashion. You can check out the programme here and we also have a tumblr. There will be talks, workshops, demonstrations and Mary Katrantzou will be there (I think her talk will be ticketed)! If you're in London on the 8th December then it's definitely worth going to.
