When my sister isn't being a little cooking machine of wonderment. She is making amazing hair adornments. Bowbands have been the official favourite accessory to the much loved Get Cutie boutique in Brighton for some time now and I am excited to report that the Handmade Shop in Kemptown is the latest outlet to sell Emily's wonderful creations. The Handmade Shop sells a wide range of lovingly handmade items. Here is their blog and please go and visit them to see Emily's bows!

I went to Dorset for a camping holiday! It was bloody lovely.It rained. It shone. I petted cats, dogs, pot bellied pigs and horses. I ate my body weight in cream teas. I sat in little teashops and wrote postcards to my nearest and dearest. I looked for fossils on the beach. I drank cider. Dorset is beautiful and a bit funny. I want to go back soon.
I'm so excited. LMNOP is a creative design studio and gallery and shop in Brighton. The shop is a little treasure chest of illustrated wares. They really strive to stock a wide range of zines, books, comics, prints, cards and handmade accessories made by artists and illustrators. I'm really proud to be able to help them out by doing work experience with them. LMNOP is right up my creative little street and I'll be tweeting, blogging and helping them source new exciting products for the shop and online store on their new website.
I will miss you London. But I've been homesick. I've missed the sea. And Sussex. And my family and friends. And the choice of cider and vegetarian food. And going for walks on late summer sundays with my boyfriend and picking tiny apples off trees, you know the usual stuff.
We finally had our muchly anticipated degree show at Westminster. We put up our drawings, our loved ones turned up, we drank, we laughed and we felt elated and most importantly relieved. The lovely Amelia Gregory said some lovely things about my work here.
