Creative Life - My Top 5 Creative Books

As a creative human I am constantly seeking new creative books, podcasts, exhibitions, blogs and events. In my home studio I have shelves full of books which I'm constantly going back and re-reading, or flicking through in times where I need visual inspiration or reference.

Personally I'm looking for motivational, visually inspiring, informative books that are fun to read as well as being beautiful to look at. When I'm in bookshops my rule is if I don't want to put it down and can't stop thinking about it, then it has to come home with me. I can't think of a book that I regret buying.

In this post I wanted to share my Top 5 creative books, all of which I'm totally in love with. Here goes...

Creative Life - My Top 10 Visually Stunning Films

This list was meant to be a 'Top 5', however after some research, I couldn't possibly narrow it down, so there you go, its a top 10 instead! This is a list of my personal favourite 'stunning' films based on their cinematography, rather than based on the plot, acting, score etc. Basically it's films that are unique and brilliant to look at so much so that you could watch them with no sound and they would still be amazing. I would love to know what your personal favourites would be so please leave a comment down below!

I have decided to put them in alphabetical order as I just cant bear to make a decision on which is the most stunning!

Freebie - Christmas 2017 - Printable Advent Cards

Alternative advent calendars are EVERYWHERE this year. From gin to nail varnish the days of little chocolates behind paper doors is becoming a thing of the past. My personal favourite are the ones which people do for themselves. Since I was little my mum has filled a santa shaped 'pocket' advent calendar with little treats personal to me and my sister, so the homemade ones always feel so nostalgic to me! I've been seeing a lot of people doing little treats in boxes or bags, so I thought I'd design some little numbers for you to download, print, cut out and use for you to get creative with and make your own advent calendar!

For best results (and so you can re-use them next year) print them on white card!
