Bank Holiday Weekend - Meeting The Feeling

Monday, 25 August 2014

This bank holiday weekend I spent taking photos for Salmonsfest in Usk. You would be forgiven if you had never heard of it, I hadn't until I seen a post one day on Facebook asking for local photographers to get in touch. I did the standard leaving of my email address and links and forgot all about it, until a few weeks ago I had an email asking me was I still available to shoot. 

The Disney Tag

Friday, 22 August 2014

In the last few days I have seen this tag floating around. I discovered it at first on Marie' blog, her blog is beautiful by the way, make sure you check it out.  I also enjoyed reading Kirstie' post, she also has an amazing blog. This tag immediately caught my eye as I am a huge disney fan, I knew I had to do it. I have chosen a few different questions from both blogs. Hope you enjoy!

1. What's your favourite Disney film?
Definitely Frozen, I loved this film when I first watched it and I constantly went on and on about how good it is. The music in the film is amazing, I am also obsessed with Elsa.

2. Which Disney movie’s scene would you have loved to live?
I think it would have to be the ballroom scene in Beauty and the Beast, watching that part of the film   gives me shivers, I love it.

100 Happy Days - Week 3

Wednesday, 20 August 2014

I've decided to change the way I post the 100 Happy Days challenge, the way I did it before just didn't look right. I am now going to post the pictures on Instagram and put them into a weekly roundup of photos. Hopefully this will look a lot better.

My Weekend in Photos

Monday, 18 August 2014

I had a pretty hectic/exciting weekend this week. On Friday I finally recieved the keys to my new shop. I don't know if I've written about this on here yet but I am opening my own photography studio. There is so much work to be done though so I will keep you posted.

Saturday I went on the standard new place trip to Ikea and bought lots of new goodies for the shop. Haul to follow!

Liebster Award

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

This week we got nominated for a Liebster Award by two different blogs. The lovely Cassie from Gloss & Glitter and Emma Louise from Everything Beauty.

The Liebster Award helps to recognise and discover new bloggers that may be just starting out, it's a sort of 'Welcome to the blogging world' gesture.

I never normally comment on the deaths of famous people. You never really see the real people beyond the 'celebrity' persona and therefore you never really know them as a real person. 

Monkey Forest Adventure Day

Monday, 11 August 2014

I have recently just celebrated my first wedding anniversary with my husband, my sister and her boyfriend (who happens to also be the husbands best friend) paid for us to stay over night in a lovely hotel and spend the next day in a monkey sanctuary. It was an awesome mini break away and we had an amazing time seeing all the monkeys. You can see the vlog of our day here.

High End Beauty Items

Friday, 8 August 2014

There are so many high end beauty items that are on my wishlist, I feel like I really need them all, haha. Here are a few that I have been eyeing up.

Also, sorry that I have not done a '100 happy days' post this week but I am thinking of changing it up a bit. I think I'm going to post the pictures on Instagram of the things that make me happy each day and then put it in to a weekly post of Instagram photos, I think this might be a bit more interesting and fun. I'm going to start back up on tuesday, I hope you don't mind!

Would You Rather? - Beauty Tag

Monday, 4 August 2014

I was looking through blogs for a good tag that I could do as I really enjoy doing these.  I stumbled across The Lilly Mint Blog and she had recently done the 'Would You Rather? - Beauty Tag'.  I really enjoyed reading her post so I decided to do it myself.

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eye liners, lipsticks and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?
Oh no, I don't like this question, I'm more of a lipstick person but I love eyeshadows, I think I would have to say palettes and eyeshadows.

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I could never go through cutting my hair short again. My hair was quite long about two and a half years ago and I thought it would be a good idea to cut it in to a REALLY short bob.  I hated it and it took so long to grow back so I think I would have to say never cut it again. 

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I absolutely love coral but I think that a pink cheek is a lot more flattering on me as I am extremely pale.

July 'Technology' Favourites

Friday, 1 August 2014

This month Google Chromecast changed my life for the better. Warehouse Express have always been great for all sorts of photography equipment but this month I have been using them a lot more than usual. Netflix has made me into a slight hermit as I have been obsessed with so many shows. And last but not least Landcam, which I had as a free download from Starbucks has completely changed the way I instagram all of my images.
