I'm a procrastinator.... everyone is at some point right?? Please tell me that you are!! would make me feel so much better!!!
I have so much work to do at the moment (don't get me wrong I love designing) but sometimes I get "design block".. I was speaking with Nicole about this the other day... and basically we both agree that sometimes you just have to take a day and do something completely different, take your mind off of what you have to do. Clear your bloody head and come back the next day refreshed and the designing will just flow (well that's normally the plan anyway)... is that just us or do some of you guys feel that way too?

Also speaking of the talented one, Nicole did this awesome illustrated spread with Chicmuse, Stylescrapbook and myself - see it here.

Also see my interview on Jenni's blog here.

I think most creatives procrastinate. It's an inbuilt filter to make sure you've got your shit straight before you act out on your impulses and creative .....thingys. Except when drinking...no procrastination issues there!

Great photos...off to check what you lot have been doing...

I'm such a procrastinator, and honestly, I don't know anyone who isn't! Maybe it's a college thing.

I love that top and the bottom hem of it. I wish I could pull of that many bangles! But then again it would bug me when writing ;P

beautiful outfit. :)

Milly. said...

Oh wow, I love your top. In fact I love your whole outfit. It is very much my style!

Also yes...I am exactly like that. I have the longest list of 'to dos' I have ever seen (and I write a LOT of lists)... and yet I'm on here, looking at your blog. Feel privileged ;) especially creative-wise when it comes to my art coursework, you DO need some time off to gather inspiration, you can't force it.

I'm coming to the US of AAA next year / one after. Any tips on where to go / how to travel / where to work or intern etc... I may email you if that's OK?!

lots of love xxx

Annachiara said...

wow....looooove you!!!! *_*

kbezona said...

I used to cover my wrists with bracelets I never take off (not even sleeping or in the shower). My mum hated that xD

Couture said...

MELISSA Z. said...

LOve the bangles and beautiful blouse and shorts- I sometimes get frustrated and have to take all jewelry off ! I totally understand that I think sometimes it's because our minds are overflowing with ideas to the point it just goes blank!! katie.xx

what a great top!

Camilla said...

oh my days, I know exactly how you feel about not having long enough arms some days...okay, not i don't, but i do love this look.
i do get what you mean about designers block though (not that I'm a designer...but when I design stuff..you get the point.) I like to not do it for a few days, then when I come back to it, my head is full of inspirations. :)

&Thanks for commenting Gemma!

Raez said...

hey girl heeyyyy. been missing your seriously amazing style and colourful lips;) glad to see you're still balling, haha!

And yeah, i know that feeling. Procastination sucks, but design block/idea block is the worst. I always just go for a walk or stalk other people's blogs for some inspiration.

anyways, happy friday!

Daphne said...

That's a really special top. And I am exactly the same way with my writing. It's better not to force it. If it's not happening I take the day off.

I completely relate-- I once wrote a "how to" book for procrastination in the 4th grade and turned it in as my creative writing assignment (that I had put off doing to write the silly book). My teacher was less than amused...

I'm a writer, and I definitely need a break from time to time. Even just changing mediums-- working with pictures instead of words-- helps so much to open my tense brain up a little. Maybe that's why I love fashion so much!
