Shooting for World Duty Free

Monday, 29 June 2015

Back in early May, a while ago now in reality, World Duty Free Group - ya'no, the company we buy all of our beauty essentials from in an airport - were in contact with me to shoot some items for their Social Media channels

This isn't the first time I have shot for them. I have photographed some blogger events for them like their Jet Set Beauty event, Whiskey tasting, as well as London Fashion Week SS15
I now want to show you a glimpse at the kind of things I shot for them, and what you can see on their Instagram, and Twitter pages

How To Deal With A Loss

Thursday, 25 June 2015

I am a little bit unsure as to whether I should actually publish this blog post. I don't really know where I want to go with it right now. I very recently lost my Grandad (my Grandy) ever so suddenly and with no real warning. We knew he was ill, but we expected a lot longer with him still so it has come as a shock. Much like when my Nan passed 5 years ago
I now have no grandparents at all

I haven't written this for sympathy, I want to explain how I deal with a loss for others to find comfort in but also to explain that I know what you may be going through if you have just recently lost somebody and lost hope

My Netflix Binge List

Tuesday, 23 June 2015

I am a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to Netflix and I have only had Netflix for 3 months now. I was adamant I wasn't going to get it as I didn't need it in my life, but soon realised OhMyGodzzz I need it
All of my friends were talking about shows that I couldn't watch and enough was enough. I got it for me and my OH to share (even though he still doesn't pay me for it. Yes Jordan, that is a slight dig at you if you are reading this) and have been glued to it since
Here is what I have been binging on recently

How To: Prep for a Festival!

Wednesday, 10 June 2015

Festival season is now truly among us with the start of summer, and in 2 days time I am heading off to my second festival of the year (my first being Slamdunk Festival). This time I am heading off for 3 days however, I couldn't get the time off work to go for the full 5 :(, and so camping and being prepared is essential. I thought I'd let you know what I take and how I prep for a festival

VSCO Presets for Lightroom

Monday, 8 June 2015

When I am instagramming pictures I normally edit with Afterlight or VSCOcam, and before I bit the bullet and paid for Afterlight my editing was solely done with VSCOcam and I still have a soft spot for it. When I heard they released a FREE preset starter pack for Adobe Lightroom, I knew I had to download it! Here you can find a bit more about it and see some examples from their VSCO Film 00 preset pack

Bumble & Bumble Mini Haul

Saturday, 6 June 2015
