Modern Dating and Me

Oh that dating life. I swear I am constantly dipping my toes in and out the waters of it. I am what my friends have called a relationship whore. I'll be in one, then not, then straight in another. I feel like this is a story for another day though and one we could talk about for hours. In my relationship hopping states I have been in and out of the dating scene throughout the years and you know what? Modern dating actually really sucks! And I think a lot of you who are dating within the modern day can also agree with me. I feel like I have noticed it a lot more though within 2017

#WhereLumixGoes: Iceland

Skogafoss WaterfallIf you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen my mass Iceland spam that I have been posting. Sorry not sorry for filling you with wanderlust there at all, and actually I really shouldn't be calling it spam either! It's my Insta I will fill it with what I want. But I digress from the point...

I have been to Iceland before and took my DSLR along. I knew I was going to take it along again this time because I would be exploring areas I didn't touch upon. No doubt I will be going again eventually as I have barely scratched the surface of the natural beauty within this country
I also had Panasonic Lumix UK then send me one of their CSC cameras to see if I would consider switching from DSLR to CSC. Interesting... but I'll give it a go!

C'est La Vie

C'est La Vie. That little French phrase we all know. That's Life.
And you know what? It sums everything up. That is life. C'est La Vie. Whatever will be, will be. (I know the song is actually que sera but I think it ties in with the notion of C'est La Vie also)

I don't want to sound negative but I see everybody nowadays popping stuff in their 'Fuck It' buckets and I want to add a little Parisian Chic to my life instead. I got dumped: C'est La Vie. Backstabbers getting you down? C'est La Vie. Got haters? C'est La Vie. I'll never be a skinny minx, C'est La Fucking Vie. C'est La Vie is my new "fuck it"

Very X Cosmo 'Self Made Summit'

Recently I was lucky enough to have been invited by to an event they were sponsoring. The event was Cosmopolitan Magazine's 'Self Made Summit'. A whole day event designed around women entrepreneurs and the ambitious with the aim to inspire and 'influence the influencer'. Seems perfect for me seeing as I blog, run Fordtography and freelance in photography, and have a 9-5 photographical day job. I am the embodiment of an ambitious young woman right now for sure

Not the usual event I would actually sign up to myself, but after attending this I can definitely say I would do it again. Since leaving my mindset has changed, my goals have changed, the way I go about them all has changed. And for the better!
The editor of Cosmo actually opened with a bit of information about how being self made is SO important right now as job security in careers is lessening with each year that goes by. Freelancing is on the rise and so come on girls, get your #GirlBoss hats on whilst I run through some tips I learnt for the day that will hopefully inspire you...

Capturing emotions within Photography

Clikd, a new creative and photo based dating/networking app, have challenged me to write about the best way get emotions through within photography. Not just love and those kinds of emotions though, but all kinds of emotions to help the viewer emote with your work and empathise with your work depending on the emotion present. Yes I will discuss love for the dating element of the app, but there is also a networking side to Clikd where you can meet like minded individuals to work on projects with or add to your ever growing circle of friends!

KraPow x EatFirst

Have you ever wanted restaurant quality food but not wanted to actually leave your house? Like, you have your full on no bra and sweatpants vibe going on but you just don't want to cook anything good?
This is exactly where EatFirst is going to fit right into your life
(only available in London currently which is a bit of a shame. I do hope they expand)

EatFirst have also recently just launched a new menu in association with KraPow London, a thai street food available right here in London. Thai up your dinner and I am going to explain exactly how. I was lucky enough to be invited to their launch party and let me tell you, this menu has made me want to move right into London just so I can get this every damn day

Chocolate for any occasion

Today is 2 days after Easter. You would think I am sick of the sight of chocolate by now but in honesty, I never could be. Chocolate is something that is perfect for really any occasion. As an easter gift of course, but also as a birthday gift, an apology gift, a dinner party gift, an after dinner party favour, as a little TREAT YO SELF GUUURRRLLL. The possibilities are endless

Yeah you can treat your self to some discounted easter eggs right about now, but why not really treat yourself and opt for Elizabeth Shaw's offering? I have always thought Elizabeth Shaw chocolate exudes luxury and at the end of the day, you are worth it

My Tattoos. Part 1

I don't know if you would have noticed in pictures, but I have a few tattoos dotted about me. You may see my small wrist ones on Instagram or selfies, but you may not know that actually some of my body is absolutely covered and that they are mostly hidden depending on what I am wearing that day. Because I have about 15 seperate tattoos, and a real want for loads more, I thought I would divulge to you exactly what they are, where they are, and why I decided to get them

Body Confidence and Me

Body confidence, or lack thereof, is something we will all have experience in regardless of our age or gender. Whether it be body positivity or body loathing, we all think some things about ourselves and strive to be this vision of perfection on the outside in the hopes that people will then get to know us and our 'insides'. Not literally our insides but you know what I mean

The Ordinary Skincare

The Ordinary by Deciem
Do you want to know my current skincare secret? (apart from the antiobiotics I am currenly on for acne)
It's these little £5-6 beauties that I first discovered on ASOS and have since seen blowing up. The Ordinary Skincare is a new brand owned by Deciem. Deciem describe themselves as 'An Abnormal Beauty Company' and it isn't hard to see why. They are doing things that others aren't and trying to change the industry for the better
But I am not here to talk about Deciem as a whole. Mainly their brand The Ordinary and the 2 new additions to my skincare arsenal that I am LOVING
