Summer Cocktails with Appletiser

Wednesday, 29 June 2016

I love cocktails. I don't know whether you have guessed from the regular appearance of Funkin Cocktails on my blog, as well as Gin. Summer should technically be here seeing as the Summer Solstice was only 2-ish weeks ago. I haven't seen much of it yet though, have you?

However, despite this little weather hiccup, I want to bring you some refreshing and summery cocktails for those potentially hot days we may get in the future. Nothing better than something refreshing on a hot day after all, especially when it includes alcohol

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

Wednesday, 22 June 2016

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

Monday, 20 June 2016

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

Wednesday, 15 June 2016

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

Monday, 13 June 2016

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

Wednesday, 8 June 2016

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

Wednesday, 1 June 2016

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
