Hello lovelies, so this weeks post is a bit different. It’s that time of year again so of course Reasons is on the agenda! This year is no different! As always the excitement is brewing with-in me and of course Pinterest is my go to and with the new changes they’ve put into place, I’ve fallen back in love.
Here’s a quick look at my top festival MakeUp Looks from Pinterest and why!
- The Sheer Glitter Under Eye:
This is actually tricker to replicate then I thought so bare in mind if you wanna try replicate this you will need time, and a few small makeup brushes. This look has definitely inspired this years Reasons UK MakeUp Look.
You may not know this, but I actually have an Art Degree in Fine Art Print Making. So when I found out about the Skipton Open Art Studio (opening today) you guys know I was all over it!
One of the best thing about this type of event is that it encourages people who may not have a background in art to explore and get involved in a non judgmental environment. There is so much going on in the event there is bound to be something for everyone. Your likely to have a “wow I didn’t expect to enjoy that, but I’m so glad we decided to have a look” moment.
This post is dedicated to an exhibition that really spoke to me. When it comes to art the ‘what, why, and who’ interest me most.
Who Am I? is an evolving art installation curated by Sarah Taylor, taking place at Piquet House as part of the Piquet House Takeover.
This project invites members of the public to create a life size collage of who they truly are, from the inside out. Using a range of mediums, including paint, pens, chalk, fabrics, vinyls, wallpapers etc, each individual will be drawn around on a large sheet of paper and is then invited to create their own multi-layered self portrait … an expression of who they feel they truly are.
Reading about Sarah Taylor’s Who Am I? art installation made me super keen to met her and to get to know the person behind the idea.
While at college (what you might call university) my studio work was about escapism. I was keen to know what drives us to it and what makes one person choose a trip to the cinema as an escape and what makes another choose drink or drugs. It’s this fascination with human nature, and my own nature, that had me hooked on Sarah installation. I had a real clear vision in my head of what I’d create but was so fascinated to see what others would do and how.
One of the great things about this Island is the food. We have some great resturaunts that serve up some amazing dishes. So when Tennerfest time is about I’m keen to try a few new places, and book in to eat at the places I can’t always afford to go to.
My Mum usually tries to come over at this time of year, but alas Aerlingus have changed their schedule and now there is no direct flights from Ireland so I’ll have to do this Tennerfest without her this year.
I’ll be heading here with Gillian so you know its one of the more expensive ones. I’ve never been to Longueville Manor before, but since moving here I’ve heard lots about it. Mostly about the good food.
The Hotel itself is kinda old school, but in the best way. Cosy, welcoming and lush. On arrival we were greeted at the door by who I assume was the host. He knew all about our booking and informed us that some of our party had arrived and were waiting in the lounge area. It was a beautiful day, so he mentioned that their were some seats available by the pool area. I was so pleased it was a nice day because the pool area is divine! We had a few drinks out by the pool, and once our full party had arrived we were informed when we were ready our table was available.
