I can't believe time has passed by so quickly! I have been working every day this week and I am exhausted. I will be working today as well, quite a long shift again. I guess I can sleep when I am dead, haha.

Got some news to tell, but I will wait a bit before I share them. One of them I might do at the end of this week. so stay tuned ;) Lots of love xx

Today I've been at work for a few hours. After that I came home for a nap. I barley slept last night and I had to get up at 6am for work. After my little nap I forced my boyfriend out for a walk around the river. Which was really nice, but damn it was windy today! We have now been chillin' in bed, watching a few series.

I will be at work the whole day tomorrow, will do a night shift as well so I won't be home until 9.30am the next following day. I've been feeling pretty low lately. I am just gonna get back to watching a few films before I am going to bed. Any films you would recommend?

Materials used: Watercolor

I am trying to do more paintings/drawings, but its very hard to find inspirations. Luckily, I managed to doodle something up the other day. Today, it's Monday. I am thinking of going for a walk and then maybe have a drink at down town. It's going to be slam poetry tonight. We will see if I go. 

LOTS OF LOVE Xx

I am really into textiles, which is something I'd like to develop further. I just got a touch on textiles when I made my final collection at University. As more I am growing fond of the issues for the environment, I'd like to create sustainable textiles.
I am just creating ideas in my sketchbook at the moment, but soon as I start do be more hands on with fabrics, I will post my developments here on my blog.

In addition to leather’s unethical side, its environmental effects are less-than stylish.

Originally, animal skin was air- or salt-dried and tanned with vegetable tannins or oil. Today, the tannins used come from a who's-who list of environmental toxins: formaldehyde, cold-tar derivatives, and cyanide-based oils and dyes. Most leather produced in the US is chrome tanned, producing waste that's been linked to cancer. A New York State Department of Health study found that more than half of all testicular cancer victims work in tanneries. Every year in the US, 37.5 million cows raised for meat but also used for their skins are stunned, hung upside down, bled to death and skinned in slaughterhouses. Although the federal Humane Slaughter Act stipulates that cows should be killed "humanely," first being stunned by a mechanical blow to the head to render them unconscious before they're strung up, assembly lines often process 400 cows per hour, resulting in improper stunning.


Unfortunately, the scenario gets worse outside the US, where most of the world's leather comes from. With nonexistent animal-protection laws or laws that go unenforced, India and China conduct heinous practices left unchecked, except by animal-welfare organizations that conduct random investigations. A startling fact is that India, a country known for worshipping its cows, employs brutal practices in its leather industry. On their journey to the slaughterhouse, cows are transported illegally in crammed trucks. Arriving sick and injured, they're often dragged into filthy factories where they're butchered using inhumane practices and often while conscious. It doesn't get any better in China-the world's leading leather exporter. Along with cattle and sheep, an estimated two million cats and dogs in China are killed for their skins each year. Many products made from these skins are sold unlabelled to unwitting American and European consumers.
