Minimal Posters; Poirot...

Recently I've been obsessed with the minimal movie posters I've been finding on Pinterest. I think it’s amazing how you can strip back so much content and just use simple shapes and iconography to create an instantly recognizable 
poster. Here’s a few of my favourites (found via Pinterest).

So I thought I’d have a whack at creating my own minimal poster :) We happened to be watching Poirot this afternoon (One of my mum’s favourite shows) and it seemed a good place to start, what with his iconic moustache and whatnot. Here’s what I came up with.

And I got Instagram! So if you fancy you can follow every meal I eat, skyline I see, or face I pull when I'm feeling a bit vain @growingupgracefully :)

TV Shows of 2012; My obsessions...

So here's a run down of my favorite TV shows of 2012, I've had a lot of time to watch TV since I'm living back at home again, and with a Sky+ box I've got content coming out of my ears... 

I'm also really enjoying An Idiot Abroad 3 with Warrick Davies joining Karl Pilkington. It's been pretty hard to watch at times so sometimes I just sit there with my hands clasped tight on my face, but I guess that's the point :P

Girls has got to be my absolute favorite, I think my friends are all getting pretty sick of me going on and on and on about how much I love Lena Dunham :D That woman is a genius, I just wanna sit and listen to her tell witty little stories! I loved her even more after I finally watched her film Tiny Furniture. Super cool that she'd use her actual mother, sister and home in a film. 

Anyways I guess I'd better get back to curling up on the sofa and watching more TV! (It is was too cold to even consider going outside.) Or maybe I should get some Christmas shopping done. Eek.

I went to Belgium this summer, but only recently got around to selecting some of the very few photos I took on the trip :)

I also shot a whole bunch on a throwaway but I still haven't got around to processing them yet..
