My first trip to Anthropologie

I headed to Kings Road after I finished work today to make the most of the 30% discount at GAP but I got side tracked by all the beautiful things in Anthropologie! I have never been before but have heard so many people talking about it. The one on Kings Road opened recently and it is just amazing. It was so inspiring and I would do anything to have a shop like this one day! The layout of the fashion and homewares together is just fantastic and works so well. Clever people! Anyway I couldn't leave empty handed and having lovingly gazed at some stunning but every expensive dresses I then fell in love with this gorgeous and slightly more affordable mug :-) I also bought my Mum a pressie but I can't put the photos up incase she see's it before her birthday.

Fabrics galore from Fabrics Galore!!

I had a wonderful hour mooching around Fabrics Galore on Lavendar Hill. I decided I needed some new fabrics to help inspire me with some new card and accessory ideas so headed there this morning. I could spend the whole day in there and not get bored, its amazing! I came out with yet more spotted fabrics (You can't keep me away from them!), a few pretty florals, some cool striped Paul Smith fabric which I thought might be good for some Fathers Day Cards and last but not least my favourite finds, the retro bird and apple print fabrics. These both spoke to me from the other side of the room, I LOVE them!

My very own studio!

I recently moved flat and although my bedroom is much smaller than in my previous flat I have gained my very own studio space in the living room, yeh!! Having had to work in my bedroom for the last year in quite a cramped space it is a luxury to have so much space with my own shelves, desk and cupboards. It really is helping me to be inspired to do more work and hopefully it will help to me produce a few new exciting designs! So here's some photos for you to have a nosey at :-) These were taken a few days after we moved so not all by bits and pieces were out, its definitely not looking so immaculate now!
