Mum had to leave or Nepal very last minute due to Gran's illness. I had no time to shop at all as she was leaving on the next available flight so I decided to get crafty. Made my cousins a pair of earrings each and sent them in little bundles of love. Here are images of a few.

Hope they like them back at home.

I'm thinking 'texture'.

To aspire...

My darling baby sister forced my father into buying her a violin a couple of days ago. Whilst on a ride back home from a visit she dreamt herself in the shoes of Vanessa Mae. Sign of something or just a thought coming to life under closed lids!?

Illustrations seem to bright and girly...

Digital layering?!

Sara Singh Illustrations

These illustrations are done by Sara Singh. The lightness created with the use soft strokes is perfect.

Her work looks very sophisticated and elegant. Inspiring.

I ♥ my Mummy

"God couldn't be everywhere so he created Mothers" - I don't know who wrote this particular line but its true. Had a lovely day with my mummy yesterday as we walked through stalls and stalls of junk trying to find our treasure. We weren't so lucky but it was refreshing to be out and about so early. Unplanned events unfolded throughout the day as we headed to Aldershot with some of her friends. I swear Aldershot has turned into a mini Nepal. Ate 'alu chat' and 'pani puri' at the chat pasal (shop) and then watched mum have a haircut at a Nepali salon. Reminded me sooo much of Kathmandu. Hope you all had a nice Mother's day with your lovely mums x 

Pani Puri on Station Rd, Aldershot

Quick fix, Apricot jam on plain vanilla sponge. Looks like a bar of soap but was yummy x


Took a trip to Blackbushe market early morning yesterday to see what treasures I could find. Wasn't as lucky as there was only one fabric stall and that too of furbishing fabrics.

Did find some yummy food stalls including this Chinese one where I couldn't resist some yummy noodles at 9am in the morning.

The one interesting thing that I did find... haha.

EXIT through the gift shop.

Last night was interesting and inspiring for both my mother and I as we went to watch a documentary at the local library. The focus was on graffiti and the emerging world of street art. A Banksy creation starring Thierry Guetta, Shepard Fairy, Space Invader, Zeus and many many many more street artists not to forget Banksy himself. I would recommend everyone to watch it even if graffiti is not your style.

Graffiti is an off putting word as the first thing that links with the word is vandalism. Some say walls, bridges, building are a "poor man's canvas" however all the artists that have actually made it big are actually from decent, middle class families. So it the saying really that relevant? What struck me is even street art is turning commercial nowadays. It seems to going away from the pure self expression  that first started it off. 

Maybe art should stick to canvas as it can be kept for life as well as gaining a value. Wall art doesn't seem to have a long life span. It's there today, but what about tomorrow and the days after that? It will either be cleaned up by the local authority, or someone will work on top but if you are lucky then it remains, question in mind - how long till it will fades way? 

Works of art by a few 1st yr sculptors

There is an exhibition that has been up for several days now at the west side of the uni blocks. It makes almost no sense to me but is pleasing to the eye. Here are two that I gawked at most.
