Have you guys ever had a photo walk or have any little things like this you've did for fun?

So sleepy from overtime at work hopefully I'll get some more painting and fun stuff done soon. 
As well as able to post some more pretty clothes and interesting things.

Painting animals with some books and some past items

Guess what I've been watching recently ha ha!

Since my last post been working on archiving all my artwork on an online portfolio and it's taken a little more time than I thought. Any one else who is creative get that? 
You forget about some work you've done then look back on it and be like 

This has happened to me recently and it's crazy when you look back and then you see how much you've actually accomplished in life and in education. It brings back a lot of the struggles but also the good memories. Currently making some new ones at art school just now, it is scary but also wonderfully scary of what else I could achieve or create for my future projects.

That time does really pass and fade so quickly I mean gosh can't believe it was snowing just a couple of months ago!

Now it is like this.

So living and creating in the moment has never been so important than it has been as a independent twenty something student. I'll continue to do that despite the ups and down's and worrying about my age and how much time I have left.

I'll post my portfolio up when it's finished hope I do not disappoint! :)

In between working more hours at my part time job which have the perks of making beasting Strawberry Tarts! 8D

But in between been painting again in the mole skin sketchbook and other various little projects. To get back into practice been drawing and painting animals which are a favourite theme of mine. Not just because of watching Farthing wood but just finished my current read also.

The story of Watership Down has a special place in my heart ever since I was little and finding another book with more of the rabbits adventures I couldn't resist picking it up! 
It's a great read would recommend it to anyone who enjoys animals or Richard Adams tales. :)

Ended up painting some owls in watercolor which one is your favourite ?

It was nice to paint something simple to get back into practice I also listened to an audio book while painting them. Turns out this is also a film but very insightful about Lewis Carrol as a person and his personal life. As well meanings and symbolism behind the Alice books and Wonderland it self.

I sadly have no outfit posts this time since living in work uniform and PJ'S HA HA So to fill in the space have found some old snapshots from the start of the year that were taken.

Got this planner from Paperchase which is a store that is eternally loved but not by my budget ):
But really needed a planner for all general Deborah things and this one was on sale and I love it!

For some tiny beauty-ness I got some Barry M nail varnish a while ago cause was missing being able to do my nails and feel generally lady-ish...lady-ing..a lady? I dunno. The dark red color was also my fave color of winter this year with many clothing adorning it 8F

These were also roses from valentines day I kept and dried them out at my window for my last uni project. Thought it was pretty to include it was so nice to have them hanging up at my window like this while it lasted. :)

Do you guys have any favourite animals or favourite books? 
would love to know :)

Take care

So much Jammed into this post its gonna be sticky - Celebrations, seeing family and award winning.

Oooooh boy so much has happened in the past week its actually been crazy crazy! I dunno if the picture above counts as an outfit post but there you go. Me chilling at my classmates flat on Sunday night having a couple and good times.

Me and my lovely went out to have a celebratory dinner thing since he found out he got a full time job at a game company in the town where we study. I'm so happy and proud for him things are looking up for him big time. I need to try to catch up and do good in my next year of uni and over the summer!

The ice cream machine had a bit of a eh malfunction but I guess it worked in his favour if you look at it with your stomach! XD

We also saw a movie at the weekend and he brought me sushi for my dinner to eat at the cinema right after my shift at work.

My Hero!
Were thinking of starting a blog about Alastair just eating things in the same angles ha ha!

We saw an Art collaboration film called the ABC'S of Death which was 26 short films each with a theme and letter of the alphabet and created by artists all over the world. OH MY LORD it was so intense, hilarious. terrifying and beautiful. If you like this sort of thing and aren't to squeamish totally go and see it!

We both went home for the week to see our families and to go to the award ceremony his game has been nominated at. Even when I go home things are always so eventful theirs always a lot of traveling involved and people to see to catch up with. The parents and I took the nieces to the transport museum and it's actually so cool.

It was a fun filled day and we did many other things but it would be to much to try to fit in this jam sticky post! As well as seeing my own family time is always spent with Allys family just as much on my visit back home. This canal is so beautiful in the summer time can't wait to go on walks in the sun and show you guys!

This is also Al's family's new dog Harley hes such a little poser.

Their was also quite a few trips to Glasgow on our adventures we saw an old friend and took him to eat a YO Sushi lunch! We had rain a lot but it didn't spoil the fun whoohoo!

We also went to the Creative Scotland Student Media Awards where Ally's game for his Honors project was nominated. You can play his game here .

And the Winner was...


I'm so proud and happy for him hes had such a great time the past few weeks and everything is just on the up and up for him! He just needs to do his showcase at uni at the end of the month and a Pechakucha talk next week.
So things have been full of good times, happy tears, amazing food and positive vibes!

As for me finally christened the mole skinned sketchpad ha ha and been planning a holiday with my Dad. Also with tidying up and getting ready to move out of the current flat and playing the supportive girlfriend role. OH! and finally playing Bioshock 1 on the side ofcourse ;)

I dunno if I could top the award winning greatness above but here's a wee cheeky outfit post.

Dress: TK Max
Blazer: Primark
Tights: Primark
Necklace: Claries
Ring: Claries

This blazer has sorta became my second skin really need to wear something else ha ha.
Recently did some thrifting as well but I'll leave that for another post and I plan to start archiving all my artwork. All this award winning and creativeness wants me to remind myself of anything I have achieved artistically. 
Might give me a wee arty boost! :)

How are you all doing?

Take care
