January Monthly Sum Up 2016




2016 has started off with a bang, at the start of the month it was so busy, I really didn't feel like I had time to catch my breath to breath. I started to take blogging seriously, planing & developing my business, living the London lifestyle and trying to do university work! To catch up with Sunday sum ups head over to this area of my blog - http://goo.gl/SnflPD. I have found it really hard to write these day to day life and document them. However I am pleased to say I have managed. I don't know how daily vloggers manage it with another job. Respect goes out to them especially Casey Neistat ! I just need to try and make this into a habit!

Music 
So I have re discover Pendulum, love the old songs that I used to love such as Witchcraft, The Island, Watercolour. However this year I have discover are more the songs I didn't get to listen to when I loved them, such as self vs Self, Set Me On Fire. 

I have also been listening to a lot of  Foals. I have listen them for years now they are my favourite band! However I have been listing to their old album Antidotes. Love Red Socks Pugi, Olympic Airways, Electric Bloom, Two steps, twice and Tron.



Favourite Place 
Covent garden has been a place that I keep going to this month, I just love apple market and all the shops around the area.

New thing I have learnt 
I leant how to make my first GIF, which was basic however I didn't know how to make one on photoshop. 

New products launched in Shop 


New designs work 
I explored a different type of style this month, I have explored 2 different types one which is hand drawn detailed illustrations and vector style. 



Favourite blog 
Kotryna Bass - http://www.kotrynabass.com/ I loved this blog this month as it gives a lot of useful advice of design work. The blog and photography is also beautiful! I am thinking about getting a blog designed by her, but I am not too sure yet. 


Favourite Instagram 
Friday after noon - Sunday Morning! I have Been looking on Instagram & Pinterest at workspaces for inspiration I love this desk layout by @fridayafternoon_sundaymorning I love the green plants, lots of white space contrasted with black flat colours and bold type face! Really love her pillows she makes I think workplaces are really important for creative people! - https://www.instagram.com/fridayafternoon_sundaymorning/



Favourite event 

Favourite Tv show  
It's always sunny in Philadelphia, its light hearted video that makes me laugh and I have been watchingBlack sails season two, it is the complete opposite to It's always sunny in Philadelphia, however I am enjoying watching the show. It is like Pirates of the Caribbean and Game of Thrones mashed together. 

Goals for February: 
I am now in February reflecting on last month I felt at the start of the month I was highly motivated and getting things done. Now I feel like I need to focus my attention back on my specific task. I need to over come some blocks that I have done. Also I feel I need to go back home for a little bit too see my family and spend some quality with them! I want to add more video to my blog to show in more detail what I am talking about!
