fashion degree

I currently do a degree in Graphic Communication and Design which i 100% not what i expected and not enjoyable. I'm thinking about changing and doing a degree in Fashion Product and Promotion which involves fashion illustration, photography, design and fashion history. Does anyone currently do a fashion degree? What do you think of it?

I've got back from a trip to London for a couple of days for my birthday and i had a great time! I went to see Legally Blonde the Musical which is currently staring Sheridan Smith as Elle Woods. When we arrived at the theatre there was signs saying Sheridan wouldn't be performing however we weren't sure if it was for a matinee performance or the night performance. After asking we found Sheridan was actually really ill she was taken ill a few hours before! (however there have been whispers since mid Decemeber of her poor health!) Luckily i wasn't really too bothered about who played Elle and i would prefer to see a musical theatre performer than a name. Thank the lord that Sheridan was ill (poor Sheridan! sorry) Amy Lennox was AMAZING in the same league as Laura Bell Bundy her accent was brilliant, acting was sincere and her voice was wow! She was Elle Woods through and through!
On Thursday night we manage to get some £30 for Wicked (in the dress circle) which considering i paid £85 for a ticket in the stalls last year is very good! Again the standby performed due to Alexia being ill and wow was she good! Possibly one of my fav Elphaba's! I've heard some of Alexia's performances on youtube and she over does the whole "wicked witch" thing which is not how i like the role to be played. However Ashleigh Gray was brilliant again No Good Deed was the highlight wow is that an awesome song live. FYI Apollo Victoria turn the sound up! I want the music to pound in my chest! hahaha Also very lucky that Sonia Rykiel for H&M launched today so i popped down and got a fab jumper dress and a cute jumper! I'll put picks up later!

Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud is fronting a campaign to raise the age of sunbed use to 18 instead of 16 which i think is really important! In coin opperated sunbed shops there is no supervison to check how old the people are who are using the sunbeds which is outrageous! It can cause such harm to your skin and even cancer if they are used often like many teenage girls do. It's so sad that someone like Nicola didn't feel comfertable being pale skinned and felt like she had to use fake tan etc to be beautiful. I do admit that i felt some pressure to be tanned in the summer months however i just don't suit a tan and feel alot more comfertable being pale now i have red hair than i did when i was blonde. I know alot of people who use sunbeds or live for fake tan so much it rules there lives! Theres even a documentry on tonight on bbc 3 about Nicola meeting sunbed users and people with skin cancer due to sunbed use.
