So here we are, the 2nd brief of 2014! This one is focusing on visual merchandising and in more detail, window displays! I'm actually really excited about this assignment and I can't wait to get started!
So, the brief:
'Shop windows bring glamour, fun, theatre and arts to the streets, a visible 24-hour expression of the store's image, brand and inspiration.' - Mary Portas

Hey guys! Happy Sunday, I hope you all had a fun weekend!
It was half term this week and I'm happy to report I didn't move from the couch for 95% of the week!
I'm not sure I'm ready for Uni tomorrow...
This weeks Uni project:
Well like I said I've been off from Uni the past week, but I know that my upcoming assignment is based on window displays! Which I'm really looking forward to, so I'll keep you guys posted!
This weeks purchase:
Coat - Zara (now in sale)
Shirt - Matalan
Jeans - Miss Selfridge
Shoes - Office
Necklace - eBay (copy of Shourouk one)
Watch - Radley
Ring - Pandora
Every time I visit the Zara home website I end up creating an extremely long wish list and wanting to rip my bedroom out and start again...so here a few pieces I'm loving at the moment.
(All links are below!)
Pineapple lamp/Leather tray/Bug cushion/Skull candle/Paisley bedding/ZigZag jar/Animal blanket/Glass box/Gold hangers
Well again this week seems to have just flown by, I can't quite keep up! We've had the craziest weather ever this week (us british love to talk about the weather) and I'm surprised to be looking out the window right now and be met with a clear blue sunny sky!
I'm finally getting to grips with these sunday posts so I hope you caring
nosy guys out there are enjoying them :-)!
This weeks uni project: It was my deadline this week for my packaging project and I'm really happy to of handed that in! I've done a round up post of the final piece here if you're interested!
I'm now off Uni for the next 10 days which is bliss...cue Sex and The City repeats and not moving off the couch except to get food.
This weeks purchases:
I've finished! It's official, hand in was this week and I was SO happy to finally finish and hand in this project...designing and creating a package was a lot harder than I first thought!
The final piece:
I can't believe it's Sunday already...this year is going SO fast!
Nothing toooo exciting going on this week, as usual, well except one lil thing! I have a shiny new car - a fiat 500 for that matter! Isn't Boycie beautiful! (I name my cars after Only Fools and Horses characters, my last one was Rodney!)
I was looking for everywhere for one with brown leather seats and finally found one and it was 100% worth it! I am madly in love with him!
I've always enjoyed reading these Sunday type of posts on other peoples blogs. It's nice to get to know the blogger behind the screen and me being the typically nosey person I am I love to know what everyones getting up to!
So here I am jumping right on to the old bandwagon with a Sunday post. I'm yet to decide on the name (I'm trying to think of something witty.... it's not quite happening yet) so for now I'll just call it Sunday.
Unfortunately my life isn't as exciting as other bloggers and I'm not in London having fabulous meetings and going for coffee with my friends. I've actually spent my week here in Blackpool taking my dog for walks, watching The Carrie Diaries and being a full time student.
This may be the most boring Sunday post you've ever read but don't let me put you guys off...keep on reading for the gripping details on my life.
