pizza hut-nom

Had an awesome night at the summer ball last night, campus looked amazing with all different music marquees, fairground rides and twinkly lights! Watched the Wombats play, they were even better than the first time i saw them 2 years ago at radio 1's big weekend. Ran into one of my best friends in the crowd who was passing around hip flasks with whisky and tequila in-ergh. Two of my least favourite spirits! By 4am i was absolutely shattered but our whole flat went home to change and then walked to the hoe to watch the sunrise, which should have looked something like this:

but actually it was a little bit too cloudy and freezing so this is the view we got:

ah well. Got up at about 1 and ordered pizza hut stuffed crust pizza which was an absolute godsend! all in all a good way to finish the year :)

summer ball preparations

So today, I started off trying to clear out my room in halls to get rid of all the crap before i pack up and leave uni. In the end i got distracted by all the random spare fabric i had left from customizing random clothes all year. Decided to make some hair bands for my online store. Made a load of plaited ones in different colours and they came out rather nicely! 

Got my dress for tomorrow from a tiny charity shop in plymouth called the pepperpot. It has a 50p rail outside which i always seem to get random exciting things from, in this case it was an 80s style prom dress with a broken net petticoat! I have now fixed the petticoat and shortened it all, surprised at how it actually worked in the end, can barely breath in it but thats another matter...

Also today i got my friend jess over to make some vodka jellies, we then got carried away and decided to also make skittles vodka, and put wine gums in the jellies to make them even better! All in all it has been a very successful day :) now all i need to do is get some good sleep ready for the 9 hour insanity tomorrow!!! oh, and breakfast at 24 hour diner goodbodys at 4am, standard!

weelie chair races

So, have spent the last 2 days getting the studio ready for our final show! Yesterday we collectively painted 92 boards whilst wearing bin bag dresses and splattering white emulsion everywhere! also having weelie chairs in an empty studio is the most fun EVER. I turn into a 5 year old when i sit on one and get pushed around! 
 Still not exactly sure what i am putting up since we have two boards to fill which is an insane amount of space! Just got this printed which is an image i did for my dads cd cover! It was inspired by my parents trip to Alaska and being in the wilderness!

nearly finished

I have my last assessment tomorrow, which means, with the exception of our end of year show, i have finished my first year of uni! I celebrated this yesterday by going out for a huge dessert with the boyf, awesome :) and then half price pizza today, even better. Considering i am not using the gym or doing cheerleading anymore this is pretty terrible but ahh well.
Had a "bring a boy day" at cheer on saturday, our last session which involved everyone bringing people to try some stunting, jumps and tumbling. This ended up being pretty much all the american footballers, and a few others. Pretty hilarious trying to teach guys twice the size and strength of me to base! On the flipside i did get to base a guy which made me feel slightly less weak!
Anyho, though i would put up some things i've been doing recently including some chinese painting from a class i did, some etching prints, and my final editorial piece for my last project!

white chocolate butterfly cakes

Made these for my boyfriends birthday today, they are pretty damn yummy! However dont try and substitute icing sugar with granulated for the butter icing, just doesnt work in any way...

Mix together
125g butter
125g castor sugar
150g self raising flour
2 eggs
25g white chocolate (melted)

Spoon into cake cases and bake for 15 mins at 180 degrees. Cut the top off each cake, slice in half and then press into butter icing on top of the cake, i added chocolate buttons for fun :)

 Butter icing:
100g butter
225g icing sugar
Blended together
