Beauty Blender Liner.Designer

Beauty Blender Liner.Designer
I don't know how I first heard about this product, but when I did back in Feb it hadn't been released yet so my trip to New York's many Sephora's did not help me. I believe it was launched in March of this year, but of course like all good things, it would only be available in the USA *cry cry cry*

I did not go to a Sephora in Orlando, but I take a multi currency debit card abroad with me and I had many dollars left over so yep, when I came back home I hauled on and got shipped to the UK using spare $$$. The Beauty Blender liner.designer was part of that haul

Olympus Tough Adventures

Being a photographer and working in the industry, sometimes you get some key contacts to do some pretty fun stuff. This is one of those things!
Olympus UK gave me an Olympus Tough TG870 camera to take to Orlando with me and trial out and have some fun with. Knowing I was going to be spending a day at the water park Discovery Cove, this was an absolute perfect opportunity and the perfect camera to take with me on that day

In this post I am going to show you the adventures and the fun I had with the little Tough TG870

Gorilla Perfumes Scent Fest

Gorilla PerfumesMy dream came true! I got an invite to an event hosted by Lush! However this wasn't just a typical Lush event
It was held in their perfume store "Gorilla Perfumes" in Islington, a short walk from Angel tube station. It was a scent-sational soiree for Cruelty Free Bloggers, and my first experience of Lush's Gorilla Perfumes

I am an avid Lush bath bomb user, but I have never actually smelt any of their perfumes until this event. I learnt a lot about scents and perfumes in general that I never even knew were possible and I am going to share my new knowledge of smells with you! How lovely of me

Orlando iPhone Diary

Disney, Orlando
As promised within my Orlando photo diary, this is the photo diary of all the snaps I took on my iPhone when in Orlando, Florida

I kinda failed in that I didn't take many images on my actual camera. Too much living in the moment I guess! But hopefully my phone snaps help fill in some gaps and tell a visual story of what I got up to

Getting Treated with Rush Hair Salons

House of Rush, Mythic Oil Treatment
I recently got invited to the House of Rush in Piccadilly Circus to try out a brand new hair treatment and have a little bit of pampering with them also. This treatment is the 'Mythic Oil' treatment
I consider myself very lucky to have worked with Rush in the past, especially as I go to their Watford salon every 6 weeks, and I was personally selected to experience this new treatment. How exciting

The House of Rush is their flagship Salon, and it isn't hard to see why. Over 2 floors, it is the brightest, grandest, and most beautiful Salon I have ever stepped foot into

Orlando Photo Diary

Disney, Orlando
If you follow me on any social media platform (Twitter and Instagram and Snapchat is all @fordtography) then you would have seen I have just recently had a dead good 8-ish days in none other than Orlando, Florida!

As always when I travel, I then like to round up my travels for you in some Photo Diary style posts (examples are New York and Italy), so here are all the photos from my Canon EOS M10 from my time in Orlando and some info as to what I did when there to inspire you... (I also do seperate posts FULL of all pics I took on my phone. Keep an eye out for that one too)

Chi Kitchen Review

Chi KitchenI was invited to try out Chi Kitchen in Birmingham the bank holiday weekend just gone. It seemed perfect seeing as I was going to be in the Midlands anyway for Slamdunk festival which was happening on the Sunday, so I made a weekend of it down in Birmingham!

I parked up at the Bull Ring shopping centre and headed on to Chi Kitchen
Chi Kitchen in Birmingham is actually inside of Debenhams within the Bull Ring shopping centre. Even better, it is amongst the beauty section. Beauty shopping and then some amazing food? It's a bloggers dream! I know I certainly took advantage of this because there was 10% off. Hello Urban Decay before dinner

NEW // Yeah Boy! Photo Shoot

I have some new fashion photography shots that I have taken recently for you all to see. This shoot is entitled "Yeah Boy!" and is all about sport, garish colour, a little bit of attitude, the ghetto, but being a bit high fashion with it also

The makeup is done by the fab Alanna, and the styling is by Adrian Pini. Photography by me of course

I really love some of these shots I have taken, even if I do say so myself, and they definitely are some of the most colourful shots within my portfolio! I'd love to know what you think to these

More of my work can be seen at

Just Bee Honey Water

Did you know that bees are in danger? And that we actually need Bees?
Yes those pesky things that you swat away for buzzing around your ear. They need us and we need them! Without them to pollinate our crops, we would then be suffering and losing out on all kinds of foods we eat. Not to mention, the meat we eat would no longer be able to graze properly

Just Bee Honey Water wants to help the bees, whilst also hydrating us quite naturally

Karma Cola

Karma Cola is a brand I had never heard of before. I used to be really addicted to the well known brands of Cola, to the point that I tried to give them up and got the shakes and migraines. Eek, not good at all!

Karma Cola is here to help us "Drink No Evil" by using good, organic, and fairtrade ingredients to make their soft drinks

The Cola is made from real cola nut which is grown by the Mende and Temne people in Sierra Leone. Every time you buy it, you help them and their villages out by aiding them with money to fund projects they need carried out

Put another soup on the barbie(Q)

It is summer time (well, the sun has been out and hotter than Spain so I now officially class it as summer) and everybody gets obsessed with the idea of this perfect summer body. How do you achieve that still when it is also BBQ weather?

Bbq's to me mean ALL the burgers and ALL the hot dogs, and generally ALL of the meat and bread and carbs

What's a healthy alternative? Well, did you know you can cook soup on a BBQ? No? Ever tried it?
To be honest, me either until recently! But it also helps battle the cold that starts to linger when the evenings get darker because let's face it, we are still the UK and not somewhere exotic and tropical
