Farfetch Streetart Tour

Farfetch StreetArt
Once again on that photography job hype! Farfetch asked me a long on a day with male bloggers to tour some street art and snap and capture the whole day. As well as snap the bloggers in the pieces they had ordered from Farfetch, I was to just document the whole day and the art and the bloggers and just everything. A great, but tiring, job!

New Photographic gear from Calumet

Calumet Shooting Table
You ever had those moments where you just can not take the perfect flatlay even if your life depended on it? Or a product is proving difficult to light and photograph?
Never fear, for Calumet Photographic has a good budget option to help out with this, and you'd be using equipment that the pros do also!

I introduce you to their desktop shooting table, and the newest item in my ever growing Photographical kit (I have a lot because I'm a freelancing photographer)

I feel like I haven't really been to any blog events for a while now, which is a shame because I LOVE them! *hint hint PR's, I love your events*

But then I got this invite in my inbox and I was so excited. I got invited to go celebrate the fact that Jess Wright from TOWIE is now an ambassador to Kiss Products. Kiss do a huge range of nails and lashes and I jumped at the chance to feel like a girly girl for the evening

BBQ with Branston

Branston BBQ
You know when sometimes you just get so busy and life gets in the way massively? That is how I feel with this post. BBQ weather has really been and gone, but I got so busy that I am only able to get this post up now for you to see *eek bad Kaye*

Branston held a BBQ event at the London Barbecue School in Peckham, and I was hired as the photographer for the event! As always, I like to show off my images and give you a taste (punny because it is a food based post) in to the events and my photography. These are events for bloggers after all so one day I may even end up snapping you!

A Day in Margate

Back when the sun was shining, and Summer was well and truly here (although it feels like it's lingering with this muggy heat even though the skies are grey), I paid a visit for the day to Margate over in Kent. Mainly to go and see Fashion For Lunch as she really really wanted me to come down and visit, bless her she's so adorable!

We met up and she then proceeded to show me local delights in Margate, things to do, places to eat. Because there really is so much to do in Margate I thought I would show you how I spent my 6 hours in Margate! (Please note, I plan to make another trip to Margate as there really is so much to do and I didn't get to cover everything)

Photography Tips for Bloggers

Source: Unsplash

Pictures are the new currency of the internet. Whether you measure your success in Likes, Pins or comments, a great photo gets attention, gets shared and brings audiences to you. For bloggers, especially if you’re blogging about beauty, fashion or lifestyle, photography may be even more important than your words.

For some bloggers, this is a great development and a chance to indulge in some visual story – as I did in my recent post about my day with Farfetch, a top client of mine within my photography career. For others, including new bloggers, bloggers used to point-and-shoot photography or people coming from a vlogging background, this can be daunting. But it doesn’t have to be – here’s your crash course in going from a selfie-Snapchatter to super sharpshooter.

Osmo Chromaplex

Osmo Chromaplex
Bleaching your hair to get all kinds of unicorn, mermaid, pastel hair goals is so popular right now. What isn't popular is the damage bleaching can seriously do to your hair. I have bleached my ends twice now and plan to do so more to get them lighter before I go for the ultimate mermaid hair and whilst my hair feels amazing when I leave the hairdressers, a few days after once the treatment I get done wears off my hair starts to feel knotted and straw-like. Hooray for bleach damage *not*

Yes you can try and intensively hair mask it every week, but why not try and repair hair as soon as you apply the bleach? Rather than when the damage is already done

RUSH Salon, Milton Keynes

I am no newbie when it comes to Rush Salons. I regularly go to the one in Watford (every 6 weeks without fail for a freshen up to promote my hair to grow) and have even reviewed the one in West Hampstead

Milton Keynes however, is a newbie to Rush Salons as they have just had one open up in the Midsummer Arcade section of Intu Milton Keynes. I live in Watford but Milton Keynes is only a short drive away and their shopping centre is massive! I couldn't wait to see the new salon in MK as all Rush salons are very modern and regal now

Summer #BloggerBoxShare

I took part in a #BloggerBoxShare last year and loved it. Such a cute experience and a wonderful thing to do I believe. I love getting gifts for people and sending them little things in the post to brighten their day. The Blogger Box Share is designed to do just that, brighten another bloggers day

The little child of bloggers Becky of Blogger & The Geek and Ren of Ms Mistry Blogs, they pair you up with another blogger and then you buy and make up a little package for them! My partner was Sarah of Writing Rambling, and this is the box she made up for me

New // Dirty Dancing

Y'all know I love sharing my latest Photogrpahy work with you and these images are possibly some of my favourites and some of my strongest work. And it is completely different from anything I normally shoot! I'm normally photographing fashion and models, never dancers. And never before have I photographed anything so messy

This post is very image heavy, but that is simply because I can not decide on which ones to show you so I have decided to go for them all! I hope you enjoy

Current Beauty Wishlist

Beauty Wishlist
Everybody has a beauty wishlist. Whether it be that you need more shampoo, conditioner, disposable razors or that brand new lipstick and 'omg wow' product that you need
Countless new products are being released all the time and this is my current beauty wishlist that I have always stuck into my mind for when I have countless dollar (or in my case, GBP Sterling but it doesn't quite have the same ring as dollar)

Philly Cheesesteaks in London

Liberty Cheesesteak
Once again, blogger Bae Leigh has been an absolute babe and invited me somewhere amazing! We went to the press evening together of brand new Street Food car "Liberty Cheesesteak" which is based in Spitalfields market
An area I consider a foodies delight, and boy is this truck a real delight!

The cheesesteak child of real Philly expats. You know you are in for a genuine treat when Philly expats wanted and needed to bring genuine cheesesteaks to London. You know the food is going to be good, genuine, and like a little piece of America without the long haul flight

Beauty with Farfetch

Farfetch have recently launched a beauty section to their site. Initially all about high fashion and bringing you boutiques from all over the world to your screen, you can now shop from all kinds of beauty boutiques also and get shipped to the comfort of your home

To celebrate this, they invited a bunch of beauty bloggers to the London Makeup School to go through some key trends for SS16. They had demonstrations on models, and even then got the chance to try some of them out for themselves!

I was hired as the photographer (I cover a lot of events for Farfetch and more can be seen here and here) and for me this was one of the most fun events to cover! It was just like being backstage at London Fashion Week as I was photographing models and bloggers get their makeup done. Not to blow my own trumpet, but I think I am good at fashion week coverage so this was an event really suited to my skill set!
It is a very picture heavy post, so enjoy! I hope you like what I create

Nano-b toothbrushes

Nano-b toothbrush
I don't know about you, but I have such anxiety when it comes to my teeth! It all stemmed from an early age when I needed so many teeth out as I had too many for my tiny mouth, when I got bullied for having wonky teeth, when I got bullied for having braces and glasses to fix said wonky teeth! (you just can't win as a kid). I also had braces for so many years, they just kept on extending my treatment. Not to mention, an ex of mine was a dentist and the first thing he said to me was "I can fix that gap in your front teeth you know". I should have known not to go out with a guy who says that as his first line...

I have nightmares about losing my teeth. Just so many woes me and my mouth have. "Are they white enough?" "Should I get them whitened?" "Are they strong enough?" "I wish I could afford Veneers". So anything that comes along promising to help my teeth, I buy into. Like these Nano-b Toothbrushes

New Work // Shivon

Shivon Johnstone
It was about a year ago that I last worked with Shivon and you can see some of the fruits of our labour here. That link takes you to a lookbook video we worked on, but I also shot #OOTD pics for her too at each location we filmed

She is upping her game as a fashion blogger so hopefully you will see some more content from the two of us very soon. For now though, here are some new images we shot together at the Ashridge Estate in Berkhamsted
