The Photography Show is Coming...

Monday, 18 February 2019

The only show for photographers is coming back again in March and is bigger and better than ever! This time with the addition of The Video Show. The two now kinda go hand in hand with DSLR's offering video so The Photography Show has expanded to also incorporate a video show chock full of talks for videographers as well as photographers, or even keen amateurists.
This is the first year in a while I can actually attend and enjoy the show as I am normally working it for various brands. I have been a speaker for Manfrotto and Interfit before so don't often get a chance to enjoy the show and take part in all of the demonstrations and talks they actually put on for people like me.

A Day in Soho

Monday, 3 December 2018

So Ho Ho Ho Christmas Lights
Soho is a popular and lively destination in London. A quick google of Soho in London and you find the area is pretty central and jam packed of things to do. So jam packed that it can be kind of daunting of what to actually do. There is no shortage of places to eat or bars, but there is a lot of other things you can do around Soho also. I was challenged to spend a day in Soho so this is a blog post of everything I crammed into a day, but I may mention other little extras you can do. You definitely may want a couple of days in Soho also so looking up Hotels in Soho is a good idea. One of my fave date nights is a theatre show and then a hotel in London for when you finish the theatre in the evening.

My Chocolate Transformation

Tuesday, 23 October 2018

Muse of London is a salon based on Mortimer St in Fitzrovia, London. Known for its excellent work at colouring hair and recently it celebrated its 5th birthday! I went along to the party and had an ace time and at the same time as celebrating their birthday, they also announced a new #ChocolateCrusade campaign in association with Tigi Copyright Colours.
Due to this the party was filled with chocolate martinis which were strong but also so chocolatey and a delectable chocolate fountain, one of my fave things ever. You can be sure I dipped all the chocolate mini doughnuts into loads more chocolate.
I then had the chance to experience some of the new campaign also! I got invited for an appointment at Muse so yes, this appointment is gifted in exchange for my review.

Freelancing. One year on.

Wednesday, 17 October 2018

It is officially my 1 year of freelancing anniversary. Or roughly around this time. I can't remember an actual date which is pretty bad so I call it at some point in October.
A lot of people didn't realise I was working full time and doing the photography as a side hustle. I never really let on that more than a year ago I was working a 9-5 and side hustling as it was always my dream to be full time and my own boss. And here I am. A year later and succeeding and surviving! I basically want to talk about how I have found it and offer up some tips for anyone else wanting to do the same and taking the leap into full time photography.

The Roaccutane Diaries: Month 3

Wednesday, 23 May 2018

The Roaccutane Diaries
Day 59 marked the end of my second month and so here we go into month 3!
Just a little update about my derm appointment on day 59 though. It went so smooth! I now only need to see her in 3 months time and I need to have a blood test again a week before I see her. An appointment will come through in the post. In the meantime, for the next 2 months all I need to do is come in, do a pregnancy test with a nurse and voila I'll get a prescription! Easy! Which means my appointment with the actual Doctor should mean that is the end of my treatment. Hopefully only 3 more months to go which would mean I have been on roaccutane for 5 months.

Therapi Haircare

Friday, 11 May 2018

I had never heard of THERAPI before. Yeah I have heard of therapy, but that doesn't really have anything to do with haircare.

Just a note, I like to think I am funny. Not sure if that comes across though...

THERAPI are a haircare brand that want to offer luxury and a professional haircare range at an affordable price point. Sounds like me, I want all of the high end stuff for my budget lifestyle! They include a defining ingredient in every single one of their products which is Baobab oil. I love a good oil for my hair so my interest was piqued within THERAPI and what they offer.
FYI, no more than £9.99 really which is decent value so let's begin looking at what I got

The Roaccutane Diaries: Month 2

Friday, 20 April 2018

Month 1 is over and now into Month 2! I am back on 40mg after having to half my dosage after a receptionist cock up
I no longer know how many weeks I have been on this drug so I'm just gonna list it as to what day it is I think and this month starts with day 38 (as day 37 was when I had my derm appointment and signified the end of my first month)

The Roaccutane Diaries: Month 1

Thursday, 29 March 2018

Roaccutane week 1I said that I would document my roaccutane journey ever since I got told I would be put on the drug and that I would call it the Roaccutane diaries and seeing as 1 month has now passed, (well actually 1 month and 1 week due to a fault the receptionist made booking my monthly derm appointment) here's my diary!

I haven't consistently taken photos. I don't wanna fill a post with too many photos and show you every single day. That would get boring. Just a weekly update will do and is the format I will be following. I'm also gonna talk about the highs and lows of the drug, what's been going on, and if anything has been working really well for me as your skin changes so dramatically. I have basically gone from oily to drier than the Sahara desert

Meek Grande Black and Rose Gold
Tea time. No time. All the time in the world. Dinner time. Doughnut Time. There all kinds of different times when you think about it. Yet we all struggle with time. I am the worst when it comes to time, yet my time management is spot on

Essentially what I mean is I struggle to balance things. I am always early to things and I keep my diary on form so I am never, ever late (unless public transport or traffic has other ideas). But I struggle to keep that balance between work and life and often dedicate an insane amount of time to one and not the other

Travel Photography tips

You may have seen on my social media that I was at Blog At The Beach hosted by I was actually asked to be a speaker at the event due to my photography so this is where I spoke about travel photography (because they are a travel site after all) and thus #KayesTravelTips were born! Following the same format as my popular #KayesPortraitTips on social media, except in a presentation format this time. A lot of you were gutted to be unable to go to the event held in Leeds so I have decided to write a blog post describing my tips just for you
