Two Clinique Repurchases +Mini Reviews

I don’t think I’ve actually clarified what my favourite skincare brand  is but if you were to ask me, I would definitely mention Clinique. It all started with one product that one of my good friends recommended to me a few years back (FYI, it’s the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel…) and ever since, I have gradually tried more products from them. It’s still a modest amount but enough to say I love the brand – I have yet to find a product from Clinique that I don’t like so much. Shall we start? In short, I repurchased the Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and the All About Eyes Eye Cream.

Identity | Textiles/Embroidery Project

Foundation Diploma in Art & Design Final Major Project (2011) Majored in Textiles/Fashion. Final grade: Distinction. Chosen theme ‘Identity’ that sought out to explore the definition of my identity which I largely alluded to my childhood. In particular, my fondest memories told in photographs that are later sampled into illustrative embroideries of various colours, textures and techniques. This later developed into a specialist project concerning maternity wear, whereby my memories – happy memories, are used as a blessing for the mother and her child. Similarly, this could work for childrenswear or other materials. Through this project, I harnessed the creativity of embroidery through self-teach and trial and error. This moment was pivotal in becoming my first real step in learning how to ‘sew’ and control a sewing machine effectively. As such, the project holds much importance in my series of work.
