Anyway- while we're on the subject of life, came across a new photographer love (via http://ilikenicethings.blogspot.com/)
Erin Mulvehill http://icanfreezetime.com/index.php?/root/life/
Take a look at her 'Life' series, I love them. Captures all the details we never think to notice. So easy to miss it all.
Here's the text that went with it:
"she looked into my eyes with omniscience,
and spoke with a beautifully hypnotizing tone,
'well do you ever feel as if you're in this alone?''
so she held me with one hand
and placed the other to my ear,
'one must listen before one can hear'
and then she posed the final question,
the answer to which could set me free:
'do you ever wonder what will be the very last,
fading image that your eyes ever see?'"

In other news...first week of internship and part-time work went really well, ridiculously happy with it all. Internship involves writing fashion blogs, researching designers, twittering and facebooking. Part-time job involves fitting shoes for little kiddely-winks and gushing over baby's. Free time involves reviewing music, evenings in with the boy and BBQ's with the girls. Happy days so far then! Have kept up with the photography project and done a few fashion posts to....it's really nice to be busy again after so much time off, as crazy as that sounds! All is well in Limbo Land.

And one for me to post a photo a day for my 365 challenge I'm attempting....
To be honest, I've probably bitten off more than I can chew, what with my new internship and part-time job both starting this week, but hey, if I'm gonna go back to work I might as well make it difficult for myself. Let me know what ya think...

And it looks like this......

- Work at internship, get lots of lovely fashion experience.
- Get a part-time job to fund self.
- At some point move to either London or Brighton with the gawjus boy Antony.
....That's all I got so far. I don't want to make a 'life plan', it's way more fun to see what gets thrown your way and ride the waves as they come.
I also want to e-x-p-a-n-d beyond this blog, 'To Limbo and Beyond'. I think I'm going to set up a fashion blog on the side to focus on that, as well as a photography blog. I'm going to do the 365 project and try to take a photo a day for a year...starting Monday. We'll see how that goes.....
Speaking of Blogs, have a peek at these:
Cool stuff :)
Also check out the band 'Woodpigeon' Enjoying them on this sunny day!
Hope everyone is enjoying the first sunny days of spring :)

- '365 Project' this ones simple- take one photo everyday, something to some up the day. Would be tough to think of creative idea's everyday, but I like the challenge.
- 'Consumer Project' Take a photo of everything you buy! Food, CD's, cinema, groceries etc. Would be interesting to see what you spend money on hey!
- 'DIY Time Machine' Recreate a photo of you as a kid- similar pose, similar outfit etc. would look pretty funny side by side.
Going to have to pick one and make it a challenge. For now though, here are my collection photos: Magazines! I have an unhealthy obsession....

All very pretty, no? Makes me want to go back to the 50's and ride a bike to a lake, whip out a picnic blanket and share lemonade and sponge cake with my lover. Then maybe head to Venice beach and get the Z-Boys to teach us how to surf and then skate some empty pools with them....
Then we would head to a festival with pretty folk artists like Laura Marling and Lisa Mitchell and fall asleep under the stars.
PLAN. Summer still has this notion of freedom about it, doesn't it? I guess it goes back to summer holidays away from school. I love summer, even in England, it's always such a novelty for me to not have to wear a heavy jacket and woolly scarfs. Sunbathing in the garden on days off, BBQ's, drinks by the lake, festivals, road trips....OK I'm officially in the summer mood now. Time to write some summer magic.
