Life is a Party, dress for it!

I am the biggest sucker for any type of market/ carnival/ festival. 
And the Christmas Markets are open in Manchester! 
I've gone only three times so far!
I went for a day trip to York for my friend's birthday. 
It is quite beautiful there, a lot of castle walls... proper british! They also have some beautiful stores, quite magical! I got scolded at taking these two pictures at the soap store! 
and of course Sunday dim sum! First time having chinese food since I moved to Manchester!
and the parties.
work hard and play hard right?

Double Indemnity

How cute is my new Jelly watch?! 
This women’s watch is from BornPrettyStore and comes in a variety of colours! So great for adding some colour to a neutral or plain outfit. This watch also comes in a variety of colours so it's great for matching, I had such a tough time deciding on which colour to choose! For my amazing readers, Born Pretty will be giving you all a discount code so go on and check out their fun, inexpensive watches!


Double Indemnity (1944) reminded me a lot of Therese from TIFF 2013 with Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Felton. When you fall inlove with someone, you should never plot murder with them. Never ends well!
Oh, how I love black and white movies.

London and Victoria Secret 2013/2014 !!

Victoria Secret, stop it. Heart pounding as I watched this year's show. It is just so stunning I'm speechless!!
I teared a little at the sight of that beautiful wing. It's just every girl's dream; so whimsical.

The London Winged outfit transition perfectly as I went to London last weekend!! 
For the very first time! It was a 4.5 hour bus ride from Manchester where I'm studying, 12 pounds round trip and two amazing friends to keep me company!
We hit quite a few places within two and a half days.
First to Buckingham Palace (How grateful were we to see the sun shine through the gates!), Big Ben, London Eye, Brick Lanes and Camden Market. I fell in love with London a little bit as I walk through China Town on Saturday night and see Huge red lanterns float above the street and the hustle and bustle of the people getting off work and heading to clubs in fancy clothes and makeup. London was everything I thought it would be. Also didn't hurt that the hostel we stayed at was so sweet; the people, facility and free breakfast! Yay.

And, of course the food! So much better than Manchester.
Thank God.
I think I stuffed myself the full two and a half days. :P


On another note. Since I'm back in Manchester and so determined to be healthy again. I thought I'd share with you what I've been eating; also doing workout videos and did one sketchy bootcamp class
with my five girls in a school yard... probably not going to do that again!
Is is bad that when I was London I was thinking I miss Manchester?
I feel so grateful for the people I have met here and the nights where I feel young. wild. and free.

Beaujolais Pantone 18-2027

and the sewing goes on in Manchester!






Pantone fall colour trends of 2013. 
So happened to find this beautiful shade of "beaujolais" in MMU's Hollings Faculty Resource Centre.
I used up the whole bolt (well, what was left of it), handing this in next Friday!
The hem is done with a two chain cover stitch, handkerchief skirt is lined and have side seam pockets.


One of my friend might be buying this.... thus making her my first UK client!

p.s. I opened up my little UK boutique at www.emmema.bigcartel.com check it out!

Pet the Furry Girls



Halloween fell on a Thursday, no big deal that we had 9am class the next morning. 
I've been anticipating this night since I set eyes on these faux fur!
All of us made of costumes from scratch, oh-so-proud- of my girls!
We hit up an oriental party and had a blast.

Happy Halloween!

xo

p.s. I don't think I'll be working with faux fur for a while.
 I probably inhaled enough to have a fur ball in my stomach!
