L'Oreal Brandstorm

So Uni and this competition have taken over my life for the past few weeks which has resulted in me being a reaaaalllly bad blogger!!

So I'm going to give a little update.

Yesterday was the L'Oreal Brandstorm competition 2011. The day began with the two teams being divided into two rooms- Team Manifest (My team consisting of myself, Rose Letley and Pippa Richardson) were placed in the larger room with 4 other teams, 2 of which were from Trent. We were first up and it went really well. The other teams were all really great too with some amazing ideas and research. Presentation skills were also very high!

We were lucky enough to get to the final 2!! (a team was picked from each room to go through to the final) This was amazing!

We went head to head on the evening and our presentation went without a flaw, although very nervous everyone said they couldn't believe how confident we were!!

Unfortunately, we came 2nd. Pierre said that he felt our presentation was a lot stronger but our idea wasn't quite what they were looking for. We got some amazing feedback, incredible in fact and although it was disappointing, I am so tired of this project at the minute the thought of doing it any longer than the University deadline on 27th May makes me want to cry in a corner!

I had an amazing day, this has been an amazing experience and something I am so proud of and will never forget!!

Here is a cheeky pic of us presenting

Right now

This picture sums up how I feel about life (minus the dissertation). Things are going just perfectly.

Sunday is a day of rest

Not so much when you have a dissertation to write and L'Oreal Professionnel Homme Presentation to create. Hmmm, I want to be a Wildfox girl, it looks fun.

Spring 2011 jeans campaign. In a word- amazing

I want long hair that covers my boobs and a stomach like this. p.s. loving the body paint!

These following images are my favourite kind... I love the use of the sun in images to naturally fade our areas. This is an effect we used when making our promotional video for our zine last year at Univesity (This is... Frankie) Check it out on my website: I can't wait for uni to finish so I can play in the sun with my camera, aimlessly.

Me, in an illustration

So one of my best friend's Sarah drew a little picture of me in a letter during a sad time in my life last year to cheer me up.

I have since used the basis of this image as the starting point for some of my self-promotion work for our third year degree show at Nottingham Trent.

After a few hours of painting and some photoshop editing here is the finished piece. I took inspiration from Erin Petson.

Enjoy ♥
