Current Beauty Wishlist

Beauty Wishlist
Everybody has a beauty wishlist. Whether it be that you need more shampoo, conditioner, disposable razors or that brand new lipstick and 'omg wow' product that you need
Countless new products are being released all the time and this is my current beauty wishlist that I have always stuck into my mind for when I have countless dollar (or in my case, GBP Sterling but it doesn't quite have the same ring as dollar)

Philly Cheesesteaks in London

Monday, 29 August 2016

Liberty Cheesesteak
Once again, blogger Bae Leigh has been an absolute babe and invited me somewhere amazing! We went to the press evening together of brand new Street Food car "Liberty Cheesesteak" which is based in Spitalfields market
An area I consider a foodies delight, and boy is this truck a real delight!

The cheesesteak child of real Philly expats. You know you are in for a genuine treat when Philly expats wanted and needed to bring genuine cheesesteaks to London. You know the food is going to be good, genuine, and like a little piece of America without the long haul flight

Beauty with Farfetch

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

Farfetch have recently launched a beauty section to their site. Initially all about high fashion and bringing you boutiques from all over the world to your screen, you can now shop from all kinds of beauty boutiques also and get shipped to the comfort of your home

To celebrate this, they invited a bunch of beauty bloggers to the London Makeup School to go through some key trends for SS16. They had demonstrations on models, and even then got the chance to try some of them out for themselves!

I was hired as the photographer (I cover a lot of events for Farfetch and more can be seen here and here) and for me this was one of the most fun events to cover! It was just like being backstage at London Fashion Week as I was photographing models and bloggers get their makeup done. Not to blow my own trumpet, but I think I am good at fashion week coverage so this was an event really suited to my skill set!
It is a very picture heavy post, so enjoy! I hope you like what I create

Nano-b toothbrushes

Nano-b toothbrush
I don't know about you, but I have such anxiety when it comes to my teeth! It all stemmed from an early age when I needed so many teeth out as I had too many for my tiny mouth, when I got bullied for having wonky teeth, when I got bullied for having braces and glasses to fix said wonky teeth! (you just can't win as a kid). I also had braces for so many years, they just kept on extending my treatment. Not to mention, an ex of mine was a dentist and the first thing he said to me was "I can fix that gap in your front teeth you know". I should have known not to go out with a guy who says that as his first line...

I have nightmares about losing my teeth. Just so many woes me and my mouth have. "Are they white enough?" "Should I get them whitened?" "Are they strong enough?" "I wish I could afford Veneers". So anything that comes along promising to help my teeth, I buy into. Like these Nano-b Toothbrushes

New Work // Shivon

Wednesday, 17 August 2016

Shivon Johnstone
It was about a year ago that I last worked with Shivon and you can see some of the fruits of our labour here. That link takes you to a lookbook video we worked on, but I also shot #OOTD pics for her too at each location we filmed

She is upping her game as a fashion blogger so hopefully you will see some more content from the two of us very soon. For now though, here are some new images we shot together at the Ashridge Estate in Berkhamsted

Festival hair with Label.M

Monday, 15 August 2016

I recently got to try out Label.M's Thickening Cream which I adored and I now adopt it in my blowdry routine constantly. They then sent me a few other products in the form of this Festival inspired little gift to me and I squealed with delight and happiness when I opened it all up and found the cutest products inside. As a big lover of festivals, I am always needing products to help save my hair during the camping at festivals

I had been sent their Jean Pierre Braganza designed tote bag that you get free when you buy a certain amount of products, a yellow studded hair band, some Brunette dry shampoo and some Texturising Volume Spray

I know I can not be the only girl who struggles with heels sometimes. OK. I lie. A girl who struggles with heels all the time

My size 3 feet just can't seem to cope with being slightly elevated. Which sucks because I am only 5 feet tall and I want to appear taller than I am damn it. I don't think it was meant to be. I can only seem to manage a few hours and then my feet are screaming for the ground and a flat surface

I think I have found the answer to my foot and shoe woes though. Rollasole!

Staycation: Swinton Bivouac part 2

Monday, 8 August 2016

Swinton Bivouac Meadow Yurts
Do you remember when I went up to a place in Yorkshire called Swinton Bivouac and stayed in a log cabin? No? Refresh your memory right here

They loved the photographs I took so much that they invited me back, but this time to stay in one of their Meadow Yurts to photograph these instead. What a great place to get your glamp on really as they offer log cabins or meadow yurts. I love the place so much that I decided to write another blog post, but this time explaining about my stay in the yurts as well as showing you the pictures I took for them

World Duty Free
Excited about an upcoming holiday? I have about 3 planned for the end of this year so far and every time I go away I just absolutey love checking out what is on offer at the Duty Free bits. I am lucky in that I have Luton, Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted all nearby so depending on where I fly to, I am always sure to find new things to buy at World Duty Free

The best bit? The exclusives! The things you can only get at Duty Free. It's like a treasure trove just awaiting you before you go create some amazing memories abroad

Have you ever wanted to live the Duvet life? By that I mean the kind of life where you leave the house wrapped up in your duvet so that you are all snuggly and warm all day and you can just watch all the haters pass on by knowing you are safe and warm in a cocoon of eternal duvet-ness
