I feel like it is time to lay some truths down on y'all. Mainly because I had a tweet get a LOT of responses. A lot of positive feedback, but also a lot of people not understanding, and a lot of people not sure how to react in such a situation!! So, I need to spell it out for you and I decided to write a blog post to explain it all

This is the tweet that started it all:

48 hours in Gothenburg

Thursday, 25 May 2017

When Ryanair decide to have a sale to cheer us up after political disaster, you can't really say no to it! And that is exactly what me and Leigh did when Ryanair had a sale once Brexit and Article 50 was actually triggered and put into place. The cheapest options were Switzerland, Toulouse, or Gothenburg. So after falling in love with Iceland (we both went at the same time which was a HUGE coincidence) we decided to stick with the Scandi theme and we booked those cheap flights to Gothenburg to allow us to spend a weekend abroad somewhere

Modern Dating and Me

Monday, 22 May 2017

Oh that dating life. I swear I am constantly dipping my toes in and out the waters of it. I am what my friends have called a relationship whore. I'll be in one, then not, then straight in another. I feel like this is a story for another day though and one we could talk about for hours. In my relationship hopping states I have been in and out of the dating scene throughout the years and you know what? Modern dating actually really sucks! And I think a lot of you who are dating within the modern day can also agree with me. I feel like I have noticed it a lot more though within 2017

#WhereLumixGoes: Iceland

Tuesday, 16 May 2017

Skogafoss WaterfallIf you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen my mass Iceland spam that I have been posting. Sorry not sorry for filling you with wanderlust there at all, and actually I really shouldn't be calling it spam either! It's my Insta I will fill it with what I want. But I digress from the point...

I have been to Iceland before and took my DSLR along. I knew I was going to take it along again this time because I would be exploring areas I didn't touch upon. No doubt I will be going again eventually as I have barely scratched the surface of the natural beauty within this country
I also had Panasonic Lumix UK then send me one of their CSC cameras to see if I would consider switching from DSLR to CSC. Interesting... but I'll give it a go!

C'est La Vie

Wednesday, 10 May 2017

C'est La Vie. That little French phrase we all know. That's Life.
And you know what? It sums everything up. That is life. C'est La Vie. Whatever will be, will be. (I know the song is actually que sera but I think it ties in with the notion of C'est La Vie also)

I don't want to sound negative but I see everybody nowadays popping stuff in their 'Fuck It' buckets and I want to add a little Parisian Chic to my life instead. I got dumped: C'est La Vie. Backstabbers getting you down? C'est La Vie. Got haters? C'est La Vie. I'll never be a skinny minx, C'est La Fucking Vie. C'est La Vie is my new "fuck it"

Very X Cosmo 'Self Made Summit'

Monday, 8 May 2017

Recently I was lucky enough to have been invited by to an event they were sponsoring. The event was Cosmopolitan Magazine's 'Self Made Summit'. A whole day event designed around women entrepreneurs and the ambitious with the aim to inspire and 'influence the influencer'. Seems perfect for me seeing as I blog, run Fordtography and freelance in photography, and have a 9-5 photographical day job. I am the embodiment of an ambitious young woman right now for sure

Not the usual event I would actually sign up to myself, but after attending this I can definitely say I would do it again. Since leaving my mindset has changed, my goals have changed, the way I go about them all has changed. And for the better!
The editor of Cosmo actually opened with a bit of information about how being self made is SO important right now as job security in careers is lessening with each year that goes by. Freelancing is on the rise and so come on girls, get your #GirlBoss hats on whilst I run through some tips I learnt for the day that will hopefully inspire you...

Capturing emotions within Photography

Wednesday, 3 May 2017

Clikd, a new creative and photo based dating/networking app, have challenged me to write about the best way get emotions through within photography. Not just love and those kinds of emotions though, but all kinds of emotions to help the viewer emote with your work and empathise with your work depending on the emotion present. Yes I will discuss love for the dating element of the app, but there is also a networking side to Clikd where you can meet like minded individuals to work on projects with or add to your ever growing circle of friends!
