Finally I have edited even more photos of my recent trip to Berlin! Check out my TRAVEL tag to see the previous two posts if you want to see more : )

Berlin is pretty much one of the best places ever, I loved it and really want to go back! The whole time we were there it was super boiling hot, maybe a little TOO hot but the city looked amazing and beautiful. On my birthday we ventured to Prenzlauer Berg as I had heard that there were nice cafes, bars and shops in the area. It did not disappoint! We had pretty much the best food/drink filled day ever… Happy Birthday me!

Hyper Japan 2014 – Earls Court London

palsnacks
At the weekend me and my friend Lorna went to Hyper Japan at Earls Court. The event is a giant exhibition/convention celebrating Japanese culture, there were so many good snacks to buy and a lot of cute stuff! A lot of people had put mega effort into their outfits too which was fun to see, there was also a lot of delicious Japanese food.

My work space/desk! – A peek into my home.

mydesk
I love seeing other people’s work areas/desks/studios/bedrooms, so here are some photos of mine. I was asked to do this a few weeks ago for a friends website, and only got round to it so thought I’d post them here too!
I don’t have a studio or a spare room to work in (London rent is already bloody enough) so use half my bedroom as a working area for my illustration work/drawing/photoshop marathons. I LOVE toys.. and do collect them. I have a few vintage Fisher Price wheeled animals and lots of Lapin & Me toys as I’ve drawn them quite a lot for the shop in the past year. pens

I found this Kewpie in a bin on Kingsland Road! Haha, I did have to wash it a lot, god only knows what it was covered in… The silver lamp above is Ikea and I love it.

I do try and change the pictures here up a bit, I don’t tend to put much illustration up as I prefer photos, paintings or bits of design (doing illustration kind of makes you sick of looking at other illustration and I also think it’s best if you don’t!). But I do have some vintage illustration bits up, alongside two recent artists Nathalie Lete and Yoshitomo Nara because they are two of my all time favourites. Also I’ve got a few bits of Ana Albero’s work stuck up, an illustrator from Berlin who’s work I really like.pink
A cute little pen I got from Berlin & below some MT tapes. (I LOVE STATIONARY, especially Japanese!). tape

So there we go, where I spend quite a bit of time! I hope you liked this sneaky peek of my flat!

Oxford University Museum of Natural History

horseAt the weekend I visited Oxford (my boyfriends parents live there) and so we took a trip to the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and Pitt Rivers. Both museums are incredible and a lot better than plenty of London museums so well worth a trip. You can get the bus (Oxford tube) for around £13 return and it only takes an hour and a bit from London! Both museums are so good to draw in, I wish I had longer to draw there! All photos in this post are from the Museum of Natural History, I’ll put together photos from Pitt Rivers museum in another post, I took sooooo many! Hope you like them!
