the writing bug

I have really enjoyed doing bits and pieces of writing lately… on Friday I made a trip to the Hannah Zakari shoppe to pick up my copy of their spangly new zine, a collection of interviews, reviews, arty features and tutorials. I was excited to get my copy – not only because it’s a beautiful little magazine full of insider info on some of the fun places to visit in Edinburgh – but also to see my name in print! I wrote them a little article on eateries around Edinburgh’s urban coastline and also provided some photos for the Granny Green’s interview with my co-organiser, Sarah (also known as @whoopdedoo).

 

 

 

 

I was incredibly tempted by all of the very pretty things in the shoppe – a wide range of jewellery, prints, bags, postcards and accessories available for an equally wide range of prices. In the end I caved and bought this pair of cute lightning earrings, which seem appropriate for this weekend’s weather, and I have been wearing them every day accordingly…

 

 

 

 

Also, The Jazz Emporium blog published another of my guest posts yesterday – a piece on my vintage makeover at The Sheffield Vintage Fair last Saturday. You can read it here. The Vintage Fair runs fairs all over England and they are definitely worth checking out.

I’m also potentially going to be a regional blogger for another arts blog, but more of that later…

Just back from the July Magpie Market – had a great day taking photos of all the wonderful stalls and crafting with the Granny Green’s crew.

My interview with Emily Chandler, founder and organiser of Magpie Market, is now up on the Jazz Emporium blog.

exciting news x2!

I have two exciting pieces of news to share with you today!

1) I have been selected to be the weekly guest blogger for the wonderful Jazz Emporium blog for the next two months! The Jazz Emporium is not only a blog full of vintage fashion, articles on style icons, fashion photography and style competitions, but it is the name of Janine and Veronique’s upcycled, re-worked vintage label. They sell their clothes and accessories online and at vintage and craft fairs in Glasgow and Edinburgh and I’m incredibly excited to be writing for them over this summer! They have welcomed me with my own profile – here

My first article for them will go online this Saturday and I’ll have something up every Saturday throughout July and August.

2) My other exciting news is that I’ve been accepted by Stills photography gallery as a volunteer over the next couple of  months… I met some of the lovely folk there this evening and am really looking forward to my time volunteering with them.
