Innocent Chaos

Oops...big gap. 
So I've been at Innocent Chaos for three weeks now and so far it has been a blast! Over Christmas everyone home was asking 'what is Innocent Chaos? What do they do?' and when I tried to explain I don't think my first gen Chinese relatives *really* got it. My cousin was on board though, she'd been considering a brooch bouquet for her wedding.

Short answer to the question - We make brooch bouquets.
Longer answer - We spend a lot of time sourcing brooches and and prepping beads and pearls to make beautiful brooch bouquets that you can keep forever! 

However, Sharon also makes a lot of lovely jewellery and accessories and sometimes she'll style weddings too!

During the first week I did a lot of prep work with beans and wire and drank CRAZY amounts of tea! I'm really happy to be doing a lot of making, it's been really fun and it rekindled my love for making things.

During the first week we also did a photo shoot at AM:PM with Weddings at Tiffany's featuring three different looks.

Much excited to see what else I'll get up to but I'm just simply loving the creativity, tea, biscuits and being surrounded by pretty things plus Sharon and Ciara [from Wedding's at Tiffany's] are SO much fun!

New year, same me

Oh my...I didn't think my next post would be in 2015... sorry ^^' 
If it means anything, I didn't really get up to anything significant in December. However, I did find my return to England for Christmas was full of complaints haha. But really, I understand that England is a lot bigger than Northern Ireland but why are our train tickets SO, SO expensive?! I really missed Belfast while I was away. Mainly the fact that it had EVERYTHING.

Being home for Christmas was nice, in fact, it made me feel homesick when I got back to Belfast ^^'
I got a lot of money over Christmas which I have half promised myself NOT to spend on brand (in which case it will be spent on food), tea, food, amazing cat shaped cookie cutters (meow meow meow!) and strangely enough, two bottles of Vodka! I don't really drink much but thank you! They will be great for making Penne a la Vodka! xD

2014 was actually a really good year for me. I'd seen some lovely places, met some amazing people, eaten lots of food, married some waifus and adopted some specials so I have high hopes for this year. As for a new year's resolution, I didn't make one. Overall I just want to make this year as fun, fulfilling and colourful as possible!

So far I have started a new internship at Innocent Chaos (blog about what I've been getting up to will come later!) and am still watching anime. Hopefully there will be a bit more to share in the coming weeks ^^' 

For now please enjoy my cat shaped biscuits!
