When I started my recent job one of the things on my mind was can I be myself or rather to what extent will I be allowed to be myself.
I came from a work place that was not super super corporate to a place where we got a few emails regarding what is and what is not appropriate attire for "this organisation".
So is my #headwrap
corporate attire I would say to myself, I don't wear it for religious reasons if anything I #doitfortheculture
but it's still a part of me.
So I started to test the waters, I started with my small and cute Head wraps to see what the reception would be like. Overtime my confidence grew and so did the size of my headwrap. 😂😂
I have had this skirt suit for a long time and for the life of me don't know where it's from.
It's one of those "you'll grow into it" pieces my mum bought for me a while back that I just never wore.
I never wore it cause I didn't know how to style it to fit me...Until now.
Who else has been there? Where you are now into some of the old stuff your parents used to buy for you, but back then you would not be caught dead in it ??
Yesterday’s workshop was so successful I’m running another one next month..email email@example.com
to book your place..there’s not many spaces left 💙
Botanical Bricolage is my Natural Dye and Print Studio.
From July 2018 there will be sustainably sourced hand dyed clothing for sale.
A bespoke hand dying and finishing service is available using
Natural Dye Of The Season for you to have new colour and life to added to a garment of your own.
How does it happen ?
You'll be able to drop off at the Nottingham studio an item of your own and as long it's made of natural fibres it can be dyed for a small charge.
This beautiful oxidised eco silver ring is by @alexamilnejewellery.
It’s resting on organic silk samples that I’m working through before another batch of dying.
Silkworms enjoy a natural life cycle on fresh organic mulberry leaves and are allowed to break through the cocoons to fly as moths.
Botanical Bricolage is committed to using this silk or repurpose existing silk in garments from the past, giving environmental value and longevity to discarded garments from another age.

This quote was one of the many things that stuck out at me at the Digital Influencer X Designer Panel Night held at Nottingham's New Art Exchange on Monday.
Where is the lie with this quote?
We have a Creative responsibility therefore, to be real and to be truthful, 'cause our actions and words can literally change the way people feel or act.
Oh Weekend Where art thou? 😭😭

Lots of new followers in recent weeks so thought a ‘brief’ intro might be timely... ✍🏻
I’m Kayleigh, and I’m usually found here at my desk writing or designing any manner of things with a nib or paintbrush & ink 💕 I started my business nearly two years ago & have been practicing modern calligraphy for almost four. I’m based in Nottinghamshire and live with my husband Ben & border terrier Beau. I’m a modern calligrapher & lettering artist first & foremost, and I sell a small product range via my storefront on @notonthehighstreet
as well as via my own e-commerce site, however the bulk of my work comes via commissions & wedding projects. I absolutely love my job & one of the main reasons is because I get to work on dozens of different projects every single week... we’re only 2 days into this one but I’ve already worked on two invitation designs, an envelope addressing job, a PR event, a leather jacket & an airport ‘welcome home’ sign 🙌🏻, several batches of place cards & personalised greeting cards, a batch of handpainted table names & menus, and I’ve also personalised half a dozen prints purchased from my online stores. Phew! I don’t spend anywhere near as much time in the studio as I’d like as there’s just me & lots of other unglamorous but necessary jobs involved in running a small independent business, it’s all 💯 worth the effort though when I get lovely feedback & returning clients, too much love for you guys 💕

I have a question for you guys...would you rock this look to work? I work in a corporate environment and I call lies on anyone who says this look is not corporate friendly, like what does that even mean?
Let me know In the comments would you wear something like this to work? or more importantly can you? Does your work place allow it?
𝗖𝗼𝗿𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲/𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗪𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝗗𝗼𝗲𝘀 𝗡𝗼𝘁 𝗛𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗧𝗼 𝗕𝗲 𝗕𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴.
Switch it up, add vibrant colours beyond the go to corporate colours of white, black, grey or navy.
I want to challenge you today, if you are not already BE BOLD with your work looks. And if you are already take it one step further BE BOLDER.♥️
My favourite new piece 🙌🏻 coming soon 👌🏻
