Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet on WordPress but my laptop has been playing up and wouldn’t let me get onto my blog! I have a few things to blog about, especially a few photos from the latest wedding I did with David Christopher so I am excited to share them with you guys! I have also decided that it’s time to get myself a website as my own portfolio so if any of you know of any good websites and tips please comment and let me know, would really appreciate any advice 🙂
P.S Here is a sneak peak from Saturday’s wedding, how amazing is this Rolls-Royce?!
A couple of weeks ago I practised my photography using studio lights, it was so much fun I can’t wait to use them again! It’s difficult trying to get the lighting you want at first but then you get the hang of it. I teamed up with Ellia who is an aspiring MUA and we hired ourselves a little studio in Greenwich for a couple of hours. Our model was great too, she came on time and was so friendly 🙂
I feel like I could get better photos next time but I will keep practising using studio lights until I get the perfect photos, practice makes perfect! We did three different looks and decided to do mostly headshots just so that the makeup was the focal point. Please have a look and feel free to let me know what you think!
Look 1: Smokey Eye
Look 2: Powerful Pastel
Look 3: Elegant Eyeliner and Red lip
MUA – Ellia Borgese
Model – Emma Martin
After the wettest and windiest week, it’s finally Friday, yay! This only means one thing, and that is using my free time to do some more posts. I went to a bootsale last week, (I go pretty much every two weeks with my dad) but I always manage to find some bargains which is why I love them so much! When I was there I found myself staring at this lady’s stand where she had a load of vintage bags for sale and I couldn’t help but buy one for myself, vintage Italian real leather handbag? umm yes please!!
Following up from my previous post, here are a few photographs from the rest of my day in London. It is so much more fun visiting London as a tourist!!
Leake Street also known as the ‘Graffiti Tunnel’, is a road where people go to express themselves through art. I heard about it a few months ago and I have wanted to go since. It was much easier to find than I thought, very close to Waterloo station! The art is amazing and you can tell some people feel at home and in their comfort zone when they are drawing.
I am not going to write much but please have a look through some of my photos and if you ever have the time, go and have a look for yourself…it is another London destination ticked off my list!
Over the weekend I went to my first ever restaurant which served American Style Pancakes. As you can imagine I was a little (a lot) excited about trying them out for the first time especially as I’d planned this trip for months..and because of my pancake and Nutella obsession! This restaurant known as The Breakfast Club (just like the film which I also love) is based in Spitafields, tucked away on a side road just opposite Liverpool street station – very easy to get to. Spitafields being a busy area as usual we had to queue up outside for a while until we got a seat. Usually when I queue up for a restaurant I start to lose interest and suggest other options, but these pancakes were calling my name! I’d been wanting these pancakes for too long so I am relieved to say that the wait was definitely worth it.
When entering the restaurant, I automatically fell in love with the design and atmosphere. There was humour and quirkiness in it all with the random passport photos hanging up on walls, the fairy lights and even a Gladiator in a white bra… yeah. I ordered the ‘Pancakes and Berries’ with a strawberry milkshake which it was just yummy whilst my sister and friend went more for the English breakfast type. Despite the fact that these pancakes left me unable to move, I’d definitely do it all over again!
Here are some of my photos from my first ever American Pancake experience!
