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 www.fordtography.co.uk

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

Shooting with Manfrotto


I am a freelance photographer when I am not busy blogging. I give myself so much to do I swear! I want to start doing a bit more about Photography on my blog, as it is a great passion of mine, so I am toying with the idea of doing "Photography Hints & Tips" style posts as well as ones about kit I use to help you all out. This is the first one I will be doing and it features some interesting kit from Manfrotto

I am a Manfrotto Ambassador within  my Photography career which is a title I hold with honour, so you can be sure I know what I am talking about, or so I hope anyway haha

Bloomin' lovely - BLOOM gin & rose lemonade


It is no real secret that I love a bit of Gin. I even wrote a whole bunch of Christmassy Gin cocktails for y'all

I first tried Bloom Gin at The Stylists Rail event I photographed. Bloom sponsored it and I fell in love with it that day. (Please note, I don't often drink on the job. My client allowed me and who am I to say no?!)

Bloom have now partnered with Fentiman's to bring us some pre-mixed drinks. You can get your G&T pre-mixed with Fentiman's tonic, or for something a little different you can opt for Gin and rose lemonade

Shooting Evocative Vibes


I work a lot with Farfetch, and they recently held a competition for bloggers where a photoshoot with me was part of the prize! Dobrinka of Evocative Vibes was the winner of the competition, so we met up on a sunny day in Notting Hill to do a fashion shoot

She won an amazing pair of sunglasses too, so of course we had to include them in some of the shots

Spa London & Essie


I have been lucky enough to attend Spa London near Old Street before for a treatment, so when they invited me to a bloggers brunch event at their Kensington branch with Essie I just knew I had to go!

I love events anyway, but when an event is held in a spa? Even more of a yes! And brunch?! I have always wanted to go to a brunch event. Bloggers seem to love brunch so I need to get in on that properly

Bar & Beyond


Last week-ish, on the 15th April I got to be a VIP at a brand new club/bar that was opening up in Stevenage

Now, I am from Watford. Stevenage isn't too far away but a taxi would have been killer for us so we booked a hotel. None of me and my 6 pals had ever had a night out in Stevenage so we didn't know what to really expect either

We decided to pre drink at the hotel, and only go to Bar & Beyond which was the new bar we were there to experience
Here's what I thought...

Joico Instatint


It's that time of year where everybody starts planning their summer plans and mainly which summer festivals they will be heading too

I don't actually have any festivals planned for this year, apart from Slamdunk festival which is just a day long festival, but I'll still be planning an outfit for this one day festival to give off festi vibez

What better way to get festival vibezzz than with a splash of colour in your hair and festival hairstyles to beat the grease that inevitably comes from lack of proper washing (I get greasy hair all too quickly, and it seems this is the year of the dutch braids so get practicing your braiding). Totes hipster and Coachella

Rush comes to West Hampstead


I regularly get my hair cut in a Rush Salon. My haunt for pampering every 6 weeks is their salon in Watford where I am best buds with the manager as I have been going there for so long

Rush have recently opened in West Hampstead and they invited me down to have a look around the super modern and airy new premises, as well as get a new look for myself!

My hair was super dark, almost black, with a blunt full fringe. Just wait until you see what we have done...
