GRANDPARENTS

Today i went round to my grandma and granddad's to help them with the decorating, whilst there we got talking  about life, my grandam then came out with 'we've had such a good life, if we could we'd rewind it and do it all again' I cant believe how happy this made me! Im so glad they've had such a good life as they deserve every minuet off it and Im so proud of them. I cant begin to explain in words how much my grandma saying that to me really means to me . I will remember that for ever, love you grandma and grandad!

SKYDIVER FIVER




















Airplane | Dad after landing | Dad after doing the skydive | Dad and Curt | Nick parachuting | Vanessa doing skydive | Vanessa after her sky dive - Love this photo! 

Over the past few month me and my family have been fundraising to try help me raise funds to go over to Africa in summer 2013, as one of the fundraisers my dad and Lisa volented to do a sponsored skydive for me. My dad asked me to do it with him but i couldn't bring my self to do it ( too scared! ) We collected sponsors from family and friends and the day finally came! We drove down to Southampton and set up our tents at the side of the 'drop zone', whilst there we met so many nice people, the place was so relaxed and every one was so easy to get on with and really made you feel like you was at home! I met one guy called Nick who really inspired me, so many stories and such a good live. (read more here) The morning came and i woke up to a plane taking off and the first skydivers were up in the air and before we new it ten people were free falling out of the sky and floating down with parachutes, i was so excited and was kind of regretting not taking the opportunity and saying that id do with my dad! My dad and Lisa began to fill in the forms to confirm they were going to do the skydive, my dad was pooing his self! They decided that they'ed like to do the shoot in the afternoon and waited for the last plane, the time came and my dad was the first up, he was so scared be he new he had to do it, off he went in his little plane strapped to another guy, the plane took about 15 minuets to clime to 15000ft , the engine slowed down and finally stopped - when you couldn't here the engine you knew they were on there way down! the clouds opened and we saw my dad fall like a tiny ant free falling from the sky, he came down and he absolutely loved it! He had the biggest smile on his face and wanted to do it again, Lisa went up next and came down with the same smile on her face. They loved it, I was so proud of them both and they both raised a massive £900 just got to collect the money now!

MAC OR IPAD?



Im really stuck between buying a mac or buying an IPad, they both have there pros and cons. The Mac is rather expensive from £999 were as the IPad comes in at £399. They both have the same apps on them apart from Photoshop on the IPad which is what i mainly want it for. Im wanting to buy one of these to help with my college work as i study photography, media and textiles this would help me with my work. The IPad would be convenient as i can carry it around with me and use it where ever i like, however it doesn't have a keyboard and is all touch screen so i  would find it quite hard to use for editing photos and creating videos on. The mac is perfect but i just cant bring my self to pay that much money for a computer. If any one has these two products please can i have you advice on them and let me know what you like and dislike about the products.

BIRD CAGE





I think this bird cage is the one thing i love best about my room, I made three little butterflies to put in it which are made out of old discolored books and then put my fairy lights around the cage. Which i absolutely love on a night, makes my room so cozy!

DISCO PANTS


NEED THESE SO BAD!I really really want these but just cant bring my self to pay £70 for some leggings. I tried them on this week in America Apparel and they are amazing, they fit so nice and pulled you in and supports you every were you need them to but still allows you to move around freely.

If anyone has them please tell me what you think and are they worth the £70, i want them so bad just cant bring my self to pay the price! so expensive!

ONE MORE TOO GO





These last few weeks have been very stressful with my textiles and photography exam practically running side by side of each other . I'm really happy with my final out come in textiles despite the problems throughout it - textiles department running out of my material, which really messed up what i was doing but i managed to work round it and get it all done just in time. Gutted i dint get a photo.

Photography exam dint go too bad either, it was so relaxed which i loved. I managed to produce five boards in the space of eight hours, four digital and one dark room print. I am really happy with the colors of the prints. Ive only got one exam left which is media that is this Tuesday i really should get revising but i just cant bring my self round to do it when i know  i should, cant wait to get this exam out of the way then i can relax in study leave and then i just got to wait for the results, roll on August!
