Procrastination at its' best

Revision vs. procrastination. So me being a person who has such a low self control, of course opted for sitting outside in the beautiful sunshine (with heaps of SPF on) accompanied by my new found love and an ice lolly instead of being cooped indoors wasting the wonderful weather away.. or should i say a decent grade? I kind of wish i was a little less carefree about exams, because i haven't started revising and my first exam is one week away! I just hope the big man upstairs is on my side on the big day...

Fashion makers fashion shapers is the essential guide to fashion by those in the know, which gives an incredible amount of insight into the fashion industry as its a book full of in depth interviews with famous designers such as Luella Bartley, stylists, founders of well known fashion labels and other key figures. It's also 'the first book to analyse the fashion industry as a whole' and you will discover the secrets in order to become successful in the industry. If you have an interest in fashion, and enjoy a good read as well as a few inspirational photographs & illustrations here and there then i think you should invest in this book. Ditch your fashion magazines, it's all about the books!


A few pages from Fashion makers fashion shapers:

Sadly this is the last blog post before my exams commence, so good luck to those of you who will be sitting your exams! Try not to stress out and try to keep this quote in mind: 'In everything we do, our own thoughts can help us succeed, or they can help us fail. Maintain a positive attitude'. And in the meantime, I will look forward to hearing from you all soon!

xoxo
