LIFE LATELY is it the end of June already? I must admit I feel pretty bad that I've neglected my new blog again. However things have been moving at a fairly rapid pace! I'm pretty bad for documenting things for my blog at the moment as I have been trying to live in the moment more and not behind the lens. 


I've recently quit my job with DogTrust and gone back into the world of fashion with Leggs Boutique in Darlington as head of online sales. It's something I had been thinking about for a while for as much as I adore dogs, the job wasn't for me and was actually bringing me down. 

Now I'm back working on social media and photography full time which I adore! 


So a few months ago I randomly decided to do a course in spray tan as a bit of a side thing, and I loved it! I've now ordered all my equipment and I'm enjoying tanning clients. I'm having a hard time convincing my other half to let me tan him. He seems quite content with his t-shirt tan!

Taking a Moment

Have you ever had that overwhelming feeling of well...overwhelmingness (is that even a word?)

I recently found myself needing to clear my head and detox my mind. Easier said than done in this mad, crazy, busy world. Here are just a few things that help me when I'm feeling particularly frazzled:

//Take a pamper hour//

As silly as it sounds just taking one hour to have a nice soothing bath and paint your nails can instantly lift your mood. My favourite product at the moment is Lush Mask of Magnamity. The peppermint instantly makes me feel more alert and it makes my skin feel amazing. Take this time to really treat yourself.

//Get back to nature//

Recently me and my friends have been planning a different hike every Sunday. It's lovely to just spend some time outside and make some fabulous memories. We usually walk for about 4 hours and I love just chilling out by a river or waterfall. Dip your feet, sunbathe, enjoy nature!

Photoshoot: Mermaid Queen

Photography // Concept // Styling : LS Photography
Model: Lydia Hope Gibson
MUA// Hair : Leah Clarey

As summer looms the idea of getting out and about with my camera in tow is more and more appealing and so I arranged for an editorial style shoot with a local model and makeup artist. The concept was loosely based on a washed up mermaid, with a high end editorial feel.
