Picture Meme - Day 12 & Photoshoot!

The list:
★ Sort out Etsy shop graphic - Decided to change the shop, just need to do it!
★ Online portfolio

Well it looks like my list is well and truly done! I just have to finish my design reports (when my teacher e-mails me back), and finish off any sketchbook work I havent already.
Yesterday I had a photoshoot with one of my good friends to take photographs of my outfit I made for my degree. Here are a couple of photographs for your viewing pleasure! The rest are on my Flickr.

Picture Meme - Day 12
Day 12 - A picture of your favourite food
Mount Fuji sushi!
My favourite food has to be Chinese and Japanese food! This picture was taken at Mount Fuji restaurant which is at Stanton House Hotel, and is a proper Japanese restaurant, where you have to take off your shoes and sit on the floor! It was amazing and the food was amazing as well (if a bit pricey!), there is also another Japanese restaurant here which is downstairs and more western, in that you sit on chairs and every Thursday it is all you can eat for £20! (Om nom.)

★ Sort out Etsy shop graphic - Decided to change the shop, just need to do it!
★ Fascinator
★ Make another bow for the dress
★ Online portfolio - Half way finished!
★ Find cellophane
★ Find small pink and blue bulldog clips


Yaaaayyy! I only have the rest of the pictures to upload into my plogger gallery, and sort out the graphics for my Etsy shop. I think I might leave that as Leahs Designs, but make it /BourneCreation, ideas anyone?
I think I shall post some pictures of my outfit I have been making for my degree show, any feedback would be appreciated! I worked 12 hour days to get this finished lol!
Skirt and bodice, finishedSkirt and bodice finished back view
Outfit on the mannequin with bowFinished bonnet
My fascinator to go with my outfit I madeThe first bow I've ever sewn in my life

The bonnet will not be worn, it was just an experiment to see if I could make one out of cardboard, and it can be done! It was just very difficult and the end result is very sloppy. If I was to make a bonnet again I would go with the straw hat method.

Day 11 - A picture of your favourite drink
Cup of tea in the morning!
I think my favourite drink has to be tea, but being drunk out of big ass mugs! My usual mug of choice is Disney, particularly Piglet! ♡ But when im round my boyfriends its usually creme egg, or some other Cadbury mug :)

So I am getting somewhere with everything that needs to get done for Uni and the likes.

I only have three weeks until this show goes up, really hoping I can get 90% of my work done within the next two weeks, which is looking very likely. *fingers crossed*
