Ye Old York, Old York!!

I didn't want to put these images with the Tea Room photographs as I like them for a different reason. I love York Minster. I think it's a beautiful piece of architecture to photograph and it has so much history to find out. I also added the image of a traditional sign post to show the end of my trip back to the station and back to Huddersfield.

Time for Tea in York (Trip 2)

These are the photographs for my York Tea Room Testing day. Some were amazing, like Betty's, and some not so amazing, which I won't say as I don't want to get sued!! But you can definitely go to York and find a lovely little tea room somewhere with prices ranging from £3.50 for a pot of tea for one to as cheap as £2 for a pot. Brilliant. But just remember to take someone with you. My day was slightly less funny without my Mum (who came with me on the Tuesday). I sat in the Tea Rooms by myself. I felt quite lonely. However, I still had a lovely day and managed to try and test at least 5 cafe/tea rooms to use for my Celebrate the City project.

York Project Trip on Tuesday.

These are photographs I took on the first trip I had to York. This day I collected images researching the city. I absolutely love the architecture there and the cuteness of the place.

Current Projects and Briefs

This year we've done quite a few fast-track briefs. So we've had to step it up.

The two main briefs we've had are "Celebrate the City" where we were required to produce a sketchbook showing our study on a city of our choice. Many students went to NYC on a trip with the Uni but as I didn't go I decided to do our very own York City. So I packed my stuff, borrowed my Dad's DSLR and did a 2 day study on the place. After the first day and it's hick-ups I had to re-shoot. I decided to do a study on the tea rooms of York. I love York, and I love tea so personally I thought it was a kool idea.

The other is a live brief (still ongoing) to design and produce a small selection of Christmas cards for a client. After having a feedback session on Friday with the client I have been given a focus and a direction to go. They liked my ideas which has boosted my confidence and giving my the drive to go further.

Made it to Mexico

Winter Wedding!

These are a couple of pictures taken by my Dad on the big day. What a great day it was :) Can't believe how fast it went though. It was perfect. I don't know how brides can get so crazy about it. Just go with it! My husband is the best ever and I love him so much :D

Long time no see!

Wow! How long has it been? Sorry to my fellow bloggers for the neglect. It's only just started to calm down after a manic but amazing Christmas and New Year!!
So much has happened. I wish you could have been there!

Long story short, my Decem-uary has been made up of; A wonderful Wedding, Madness in Mexico, Cakes at Christmas, New Year that nearly never ended! And Deadlines to make me want to die! However, it's been brilliant. Everything is part of the learning process and all students were in the same boat. And we managed to rock it!! :)

Up and coming: I will post photos from the latest adventures and projects I've done and keep you posted on future projects. I'm also planning on updating my site's look, so hopefully I'll be able to make it "Fabulous & Amazing!"
