A subtle kiss that no one sees, a broken wrist and a big trapeze

I've been listening to The Killers way too much recently. Anyway, work has been completely swamping me recently - even this week when I managed to get all my work done on Monday I still have so much to organise for the University newspaper, the Modern Languages Society, the college's DVD collection and the Art's Week our college is putting in a a short while. Ack, so so busy but I absolutely love it - it means I'm actually being so much more organised with my classwork and essays and besides, everything I do I enjoy :)

The Arts Week is particularly exciting - I'm helping out with the finale which will be a massive celebration of all the art and talent in our college, including a mini fashion show! We were originally planning on basing it around outfits inspired by different arts movements throughout the ages, but realised that was quite tricky so instead are doing recycled fashion. However back when were basing it on different art movements I stumbled across this blog which was a endless source of inspiration. Miss Moss has taken different outfits or photos and matched them up with various paintings and works of art. It's bizarre, you wouldn't think it of some of them but it just goes to show how there is art everywhere in everything we do :) She's done several serieses so expect me to share some more!
