BUY THIS APPLE POWERBOOK G4 12″ LAPPIE AND HELP US MOVE!!



Obviously selling this lovely little lappie to finance our move to Londres (goodness me how time flies!). We’re actually upping roots in 3 weeks! EEEK. and STILL we need the dollar to move… so please bid generously!

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE eBAY LISTING!


Other Features:

Speakers, Mic, Bluetooth, Firewire, x2 USB2, Modem, Network Card, DVI


Selling due to upgrade.

The laptop has a few minor scratches on the exterior metal due to unavoidable wear. The only other small problem is that the processor fan is quite loud, although I have replaced it with a new fan, which reduced the noise somewhat, this does not effect the performance of the computer at all.

Any questions? send me an email!

Thank you!

Ms. Judy Pink.

Fashion Trends: Who Decides? [MINI-DOCUMENTARY]. 2006.


This is a Fashion Documentary I constructed in the 2nd year of my degree for the module, “Representing Visual Culture”.

I produced the majority of the the camerawork; I also set up interviews, wrote the interview questions, fully edited and adjusted the video on my personal software. I was graded a FIRST.

I got the job!! The documentation on the big move begins!


Hurrah!

I found out on Friday that I got the position for Buyers Admin Assistant! The lovely lady said there was interest from a few brands, but they wanted to put me forward for Topshop! There isn’t a position for a dept yet (obviously the programme is a year long one, so other BAA’s are still in progression), but that works out well for everyone; as we can’t move until James finishes his final year… and graduates. So it’ll be arouns the beginning of August when we make our big move to the BIG SMOKE!

I have to say, I can hardly contain myself. I’m beyond excited, and it is a massive relief to have a job lined up ready for when we move down… and such a sought after position! ha. I am the win!

I’m really looking forward to beginning the job, finding my feet, and getting ready for the challenges that lie ahead.

SO, with that in mind, I’m going to document the process, FROM NOW, from moving from our Northern roots to our new London base. Obviously this will include lots of stress and photographs:) What not to do, what to look out for, and how to stay sane:)

eeee excited as!

Ms. Judy Pink.

London Wednesday 13th Feb-Friday 15th Feb.


Well well well, I will begin with saying that I will NEVER, EVER EVER, EVER, get on another Megabus in my life… even if my life depends on it!

– The Megabus, A.K.A the ‘HellBus’.

WEDNESDAY 13TH FEB.

After 10 minutes, Jennifer and I were ready to cry… then we were ready to get off the bus at Scotch Corner and either WALK home and hitch a ride. The bus didn’t stop at Scotch Corner in the end, so we decided to just see how far we could get. We were sad, and I thought the man sat on my right was an actual mental. He was erratic, RUDE, constantly twitching, constantly grunting, constantly ‘checking something’ in side his rucksack. hmmm. My thoughts exactly. SO after Wakefield, Jen and I got a seat together, she slept the rest of the way… I did not. THEREFORE, I had been awake exactly 24 hours by the time we got to Victoria Station. SHATTERED does not cut it!

We met Kelly at Liverpool St,then headed to South Kensington so I could head to LFW!

-Outside the BFC EXHIBITION Tent.

-My London Fashion Week ACTUAL Pass!!!!! 😀

I must admit, I was slightly disappointed with what I found, I think I would have been more open minded had I had SOME sleep! For September, I will definitely have my placement sorted, and will definitely gain more experience and knowledge! and get more pictures! damn pass!

-Two interesting Gypsy girls. Poseurs springs to mind;o

-Homelessness on the streets of Kensington.

I was truly mystified and saddened by the contrast of the 100 meters between what was going on at the Natural History Museum and outside the V&A.

As Kelly lives off Brick Lane we wandered down the amazing street a few times a day. We passed the Rough Trade shop and found this…

The Banksy Car🙂 I was best impressed. I’m an avid Banksy fan.

THURSDAY 14th FEB – Valentines Day.

Jennifer and I did some touristy things, I took her to visit the Queen for instance… and Hamleys was a barrel of laughs. We had then planned in drinks in Soho and off to Smash and Grab… however, after queuing for over an hour in -10 temperatures, we sacked it off in order to find some bars. We ended up in one bar, we ended up with a few randoms… trying to pull, with it being Valentines an’ all. I just flashed my ring though:) bonus! Then we had a guy come over, who was convinced I was Pixie Geldof. hilarious! We didnt correct him. I couldnt tell if it was a compliment or not…?? I cant say we look all that much alike to be honest!

can you spot a resemblance? at all?! nah, me neither!

We had wine and CHAMPAGNE bought for us!

Then we went to G-A-Y…. but for some reason you need a membership? who knows. We were ready for our beds anyway!

FRIDAY 15TH FEB.

We over slept majorly. I had a bad hangover… and well, we needed to prepare for our dreaded journey back! The journey back was horrendous. My ipod ran out of battery… I couldnt get any radio stations on my phone…i felt too sick to read my magazines and there was a group of school children who were from a special needs school. so again, i did not sleep. not a wink. Got back to Newcastle at 11pm, and walked home. James surprised me with a dozen roses when I got home:)

Then well, if you read my previous blog, you’ll know what happened next! Bloody As You Like It, horrendous.

For now…

Ms. Judy Pink.

Blogging is a girls best friend.


So this is my very first blog in what seems like years. I have been so preoccupied of late! I’ve been to loads of new places, met loads of new faces and had the odd challenge along the way to keep me chipper.

To cut the long story short… I finished up with uni in May, turned 21 in June, went to NEW YORK CITY 3 days later, then graduated a month later, with a very impressive 2:1 in Visual Culture (2 marks off a sodding FIRST!). Over the summer I have slogged my guts in out in the high street fashion haven that is TOPSHOP, had day trips to the seaside, sobbed my heart out to Sex and The City re-runs/got addicted to Q:I, and I’m knackered to say the least! I’ve taken up Photography as a professional hobby and freelanced my way through Newcastle (NB: see http://www.clairebriston.com), I’ve not had enough time for writing it has to be said sadly, hopefully, after this I will finally get my arse in gear!

Things I’m currently looking forward to are London (in little over a week) and PARIS for the Newest of Years at the end of December! Which begins in 76 days (whos counting?!) Then into next year, we’re very much looking forward to more of the same, but to be based in the big smoke! Very very very exciting!:D |I factually cannot wait to move!

So on that note, I’m going to go ahead and research the latest H&M colloboration hitting stores this November, its no other than the fantastic Roberto Cavalli! There we go, something else to look forward to.

Ms. Judy Pink.

PS – after viewing my previous blogs, I’ve noticed its almost a year to the day since I published my last blog – spooky eh? or maybe not. I realise also that I had not uploaded the rest of my Sunday Sun Fashion articles, these can all be viewed in the “PUBLISHED WORK” section of my website http://www.clairebriston.com however:) Cheers. JP.
