DanYELL @ Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design textile degree show 2015

Please note: This is a LOOOOOOONG overdue post but I’m still putting it out there!

So, Scotland’s degree shows have flown by for another year and yet again a bunch of superb new designers emerge. Long gone is their crying, drinking, sweating, eating, crying, drinking, drinking, drinking – well that’s what I was doing NINE years ago…

MEALS: Veggie chilli the DanYELL way

Starring on Little Nibbles blog today 😆

Little Nibble

People hate to cook for me, is that normal? Just because I don’t eat wheat, like to avoid dairy and don’t like eating things from packets… Ok, yes I’m the dinner guest from hell so when one of my favourite ladies offered to cook dinner for me last week I jumped at the chance. Meet my friend Danielle.

Danielle from DanYELL

Danielle is the brain behind DanYELL, she is from Glasgow, she’s really short, obsessed with Elvis and gnomes – she’s a total weirdo and she makes the prettiest things ever:

Danielle had a tough task ahead of her, there were four of us eating dinner and we have one wheat/dairy free diet, one egg/lentil/dairy free diet and one pescatarian. Now this sounds like a recipe for disaster but I can assure you that Danielle’s vegetable chilli was to die for!

Wednesday’s ‘WANTS’ – I can smell summer…

Can you believe I’ve managed to post this on the day I’m supposed to?! *bows*

So today mostly involved me running around in the rain, trying to find shelter – THANKS GLASGOW. It wasn’t all dreich (miserable to the foreigners, ha!), as I managed to come across some gems whilst dripping weegie rain water all over them – some which were rather expensive…

Wednesday’s ‘WANTS’…

So I’ve decided to start a weekly post, every Wednesday called Wednesday’s ‘WANTS’ 🙂 I know it’s Thursday now but I was too busy to finish this yesterday!

Why you say? Well, it basically came in to my head when I was looking through the photo’s I had taken in TK Maxx yesterday on my lunch break, of all the things I wanted…and it happened to be a Wednesday – over the hump an’all that – so Wednesday’s ‘WANTS’ was born!

Preparing for a pop-up: DanYELL At Peep Show Coffee

Well folks, we’re nearing the end of January already!

Whilst lying back with my feet up over the festive break, demolishing jars of Nutella and freaking out watching The Bridge (watch it – Netflix), I reflected back on what was quite a progressive year for DanYELL. Let’s not forget I had to battle getting up every day for my day job (like we all do), as well as designing in the evenings and weekends! My friends think I’m mad and they’re probably right.
