I Wrote A Hit Play

"Jordana Bevan's only major flaws are her sporadic bouts of eczema"
I saw Arcade Fire live at Earl's Court recently and it was so great; they played a Smiths cover ('London') while the keyboard player danced onstage with a holographic box on his head that showed a video of Morrissey's face. Then they played one of my favourite songs, Haiti, and a technicolour video of jungles and rainbow rivers played behind them. The whole thing was really really weird but I had such a fab time. 

Then I spent yesterday reading the Wes Anderson Collection, writing lots of penpal letters, reading The Catcher in The Rye and getting super excited because I was sent Peace's new single 'Money' today on vinyl and it was signed by Doug, Harrison, Sam and Dom. <3 peace and luv 4everandever <3

I also rewatched Rushmore, Amelie and Submarine this last week and I just love those films so so much. They have perfect soundtracks and very on-point characters not to mention the script <3 <3

I've been doing lots of art and weird stupid doodles recently although it's all pretty useless but it fills up my time when I should be revising and making art keeps me going so here are some scans~~ and I also made a mini-zine that is sort of about the fabbest internship ever that I am doing at this tip top London art gallery in summer (the gallery girl who works there recognised my Tracey Emin t-shirt on the first day and it was lovely).

Looking moody by Dani @ Barbican 
Recently, I went on a super cute trip with Dani, Agnes, Gloria and Maddie to the Barbican Centre ~ the Conservatory was open (which is sort-of rare) and it was so lovely walking along the concrete stairways and looking at the huge tropical ferns and cacti. Then we sat in the cafe and although it rained, we walked around by the fountain and wished that we lived in one of the flats so that we could have hanging vines outside our windows. 

I went to see the Hockney exhibition: 'The Arrival of Spring' and it totally reconfirmed by strong love for David Hockney's work~the detail of the charcoal and the intense colour in the iPad prints is so lovely. The collection was in a very small Mayfair gallery, so I got to look round alone, which made it even lovelier. 

I got some fab new clothes recently from East End Thrift Store, some other shops and eBay (new-found birthday money tucked in a book is da one)~~~
Matisse socks // Matisse post-card // fine art yea
Lol everything from east end thrift store except socks = ebay and shoes = Liberty x Nike (ebay)
Totoro badge from etsy ~ Topshop socks ~ Bandana is stolen from my dad ~
 everything else is east end thrift store
T-shirt onto which I embroidered one of my life drawings~ Boots are Vagabond ~ 
skirt is east end thrift store
I've been doing lots of embroidery at the moment to practise for sewing onto shirts that I can actually wear~ I loved doing my last art exam module in which I did a mix of embroidery and drawings, so I sort of continued it for myself by gradually embroidering images of my hands onto a French lace christening dress. It looks super pretty hanging on my window with the light streaming through it.

~~~Happy belated Birthday 2 my one and only Morrissey u babe ~~~
Wilde is on ur side
