Very recently it felt like I had turned a corner with street style photography. This time last year I was mostly posting lifeless looking pictures that did nothing to reflect my personality. This was really frustrating because good imagery is what I’ve been striving for from the beginning and boy it hasn’t been easy. Part of the issue was my confidence in front of the camera which I spoke about in this recent blog post. With practice I’m learning how to look more relaxed and carefree in images without resorting to a big cheesy grin. Beyond that I’m learning through trial and error how to keep things cohesive plus things to look for when location scouting and the best types of natural lighting. View Post

It comes as no surprise that I’m my happiest when I’m dressed comfortably. I’m not the type of person to forgo comfort for a trend, believe me I’ve tried it and the results weren’t good. This doesn’t mean I don’t love a trend, it just has to love me and then I’m all over it. This week I caught sight of the first leaves beginning to change colour. With that in mind (sorry) I’m diving into outfit ideas (not sorry) for a new season and Esprit came up trumps. View Post

I’m going away next week so I wanted to show you the skincare products I will be taking with me. Kiehl’s surprised me with a wash bag with some products recently and I plan to make good use of it. Clear bags like this are great if you are traveling with hand luggage as you don’t need to bother with the clear bags they give you at the airport. I tend to take the minimum when traveling unless I’m going to the beach so no masks, exfoliators or any of that nonsense. It’s usually cleanser, moisturiser, serum, SPF, deodorant and shampoo.

There are those moments in life when I feel so satisfied. I wish the feeling could go on and, on and….. Apparently life needs it’s ups and its downs because if there weren’t the downs we wouldn’t enjoy the ups quite so much. This whole situation got me thinking about things that trigger the happiness alarm in my brain. Yes, I could list exotic holidays and shopping sprees but that wouldn’t be particularly useful now would it. So I’m going to list the simplest things that leave me feeling somewhat content, happy and satisfied. View Post
