Oh how i wish i was back in my first year of university where work didnt matter and times were fun. Don't get me wrong, i'm loving this project! Art Direction, Typography, Photos :) But if only it didn't run alongside the dreaded Dissertation or miserable Marketing.

I really cannot make myself sit down and read a book relating to my dissertation, thus resulting in exactly zero words written & zero questions i want to answer. What began as a nice idea looking into deathliness on the catwalk as a result of Capitalism has now grown out of control and entered areas such as pseudo-events, theatricality, the spectacle, celebrity, models and Corrine Day... Im stupidly confused and unfocused. And to top it off, i have to have an introduction (3-4 pages i might add) complete by in 3 days! EEK!

Back to the subject of this magazine project, im really enjoying having almost complete freedom, but im finding it really strange that despite the freedom, im designing things which are far more restricted than i would usually. Im trying to inject some excitment into it by having a go at creating/modifying my own font. Although, i cannot seem to get my head around it. I've followed countless tutorials but it just doesnt want to happen. Seems i'll have to do what i want the complicated way!

Anyway my self-designated lunch break is over, so back to In-Design i go!

P.S Note to Self - Read a Bloody Book!

So as a little weekend 'get the hell out of Chatham' trip, me and the boy popped off to Bluewater to dabble in a bit of retail therapy and whatnot. Spent far to much money on a bag which consequently i'm now in love with and got a lovely new purse to go with it courtesy of my wonderful boy <3
We then decided to have a spot of lunch at the lovely Leon's. Their aim is to change the face of fast food buy providing an all natural, organic and freshly made menu. You can either sit and eat in the restaurant or you can get a take out meal in a recycled card box.
Anyway, we decided to take a seat and check out the menu. Took aages to decide what to have because everything sounded so good! Finally decided on the chilli chicken wrap and the chicken & chorizo wrap with meatballs to start. Ordering the food is interesting too; you simply tick off on the menu what you want and take it to the deli counter to pay. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the food was A-MAY-ZING! And their brownies are to die for! mmm!
