NEW // Ryan X Lusy

Tuesday, 29 November 2016

These images have been a long time coming on here! It has been a while since I showed some of my personal photography work and I personally think these are some really strong portraits. Not wanting to blow my own trumpet of course

I have shot male model Ryan Davies-Hall before, but since that shoot earlier this year he has now joined forces with Lusy Logan (joined forces in that they are in a relationship and work together a lot, because let's be honest, damn they are one good looking couple!)

Packing for a weekend away

Wednesday, 23 November 2016

I always struggle at packing for a weekend away. I struggle with packing in general to be honest. I tend to over pack no matter how long I am going away for. In reality a weekend away does not need 4 t-shirts, all the makeup I possess, 2 pairs of jeans, a skirt, many pieces of underwear, and the kitchen sink. Quite the opposite really. A weekend away is something that is best done when travelling light. Especially if going abroad! Hand luggage rules and regulations mean I can not take all of the makeup I posess and probably won't use. But what about just in case Kaye?! No. Just no Kaye. Calm down and you don't need all of those various shades of red lipstick. Hand luggage rules won't allow you either. Take what you need and not what you want

Zhuzh Tan Accelerator

Zhuzh Tan Accelerator
I am one of those people that tend to tan slowly. I also tend to tan more when I am trying not to tan rather than when actively sunbathing. Generally meaning that when I am just walking about and exploring, I will find I tan more than when lying in the sun all day. It's very odd. Sometimes I'll burn also. That perfect shade of lobster red if I am not careful. Sexy

Earlier in the year I decided to book my first ever Winter sun escape and this month saw me jet off to Faro beach in Portugal to escape the UK for a short break. Ideal World armed me with some Zhuzh! Tan Accelerator and I was off to sun, sea, sand, and better climate

Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is an oil we all know and have heard of. It reaps many benefits when used on skin as it is antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic. Any skin type can essentially use and benefit from Jojoba Oil

I have recently been using Jojoba Oil from The Jojoba Company to aid my skin with some pampering and some ailments I have

Sleek Rockstars Collection
Sometimes, an event so perfect comes along that you just can not and will not ever say no. Especially for a collection named "rockstars". Erm, hello, I am all about that female rockstar life. I sometimes wish I was Courtney Love/Shirley Manson/Debbie Harry

Held in BEAT London, this collection launch by Sleek Makeup was not to be missed!

Mark Bowden Hypnotherapy: Stress Relief

Wednesday, 9 November 2016

Mark Bowden Hypnotherapy
It's no secret that I get stressed a lot. I work full time, freelance in photography, blog as a hobby, and try to fit in time for a social life and a relationship. It is constant full steam ahead with me and it doesn't help that I suffer from depression and have bouts of anxiety and what I call "mini anxiety episodes" where I get a knotted stomach with the feeling of dread and a difficulty to breathe

Last year I tried to become more mindful and practice mindfulness to aid my wellbeing. Colouring, being calm, meditation, but started to find I don't even make time for a bath anymore or to sit down and colour. I'm just the worst person at making time for myself. So yes, I have now decided to go down the route of hypnotherapy to try and aid my wellbeing and my health. But not the typical hypnotherapy of a spinning wheel or a pendulum and "you are in a deep sleep" kind. It is in the form of Mark Bowden's hypnotherapy downloads

Dragonfly Tea Brewing Masterclass

Monday, 7 November 2016

FYI all, I am British but not really. That sentence kinda makes no sense, but what I mean is I have never once sat down and enjoyed a cup of tea. I consider myself more American. I enjoy coffee, American Sports, Peanut butter far too much. I am not a "high tea and crumpets" Brit at all!
The idea of builders tea repulses me far too much that I just never sit down and drink tea

I was invited recently to a #DFMasterclass with Dragonfly Tea so I went out of curiosity and to see if I would come out of it with a new love of tea and hot drinks in general. SPOILER: I was not disappointed

Go Anywhere – Ultimate Travellers Toolkit

I am currently on holiday in Portugal, living that Winter sun life, so it made sense to allow a guest post onto my blog all about travel and the idea of a perfect toolkit for when you are jetting off abroad. A lot of the items listed are a staple anyway with me and you can be sure I have them with me whilst in my beach front villa in the Algarve
