Beautiful Faces

So much is happening right now it's hard to keep up! Midge and I are moving out of our beautiful flat in 2 weeks time and I'm moving in to a brand new studio which is bigger and better than the last, I just can't wait to get back to normal and really knuckle down with my work!

Because of the move I've barely had any time to be creative apart from the odd *AAH I'm supposed to be packing so I'm just going to sit here and make a bracelet quickly before it gets packed away..!* so was seriously excited about a photo shoot that had been in my diary for weeks. So, on Saturday afternoon myself and some good friends Natalie Miller, Oli Norfolk and Caroline Haines got together to shoot these beautiful photos! It was the creative fix I needed amongst the stresses of moving! What do you think?
More of mine here and you can find Nat's images here.

I have some exciting posts lined up for after we've settled in at our new place, including a yummy recipe my friend has given me permission to post. It's amazing, I promise! Until then though I may be rather quiet whilst we get everything sorted ♥

Vintage at Southbank, an honest review.

Firstly I just want to say that those who know me will know I'm not a negative person. I try to see the good in every situation and treat others how I would like to be treated myself, I try to live life by the saying "Always be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle". So the decision to write this review and post so publicly on my blog definitely was not taken lightly and I'm still unsure as to whether I want it here on my blog but I feel others just like myself may be looking for answers and so, here it is.

Vintage at Southbank. First impressions? Not great. I'll try and wrap up our experiences in an honest and factual blog post for you. Please note that the opinions expressed in this post are my own and those of the three people with whom i attended. There are plenty of people who enjoyed themselves but sadly plenty of others who didn't and I can't help feeling there is a lot of work to do for the organisers if they take note of anything people are saying - there are links to other blog posts towards the end of the post if you'd like to read other peoples experience of the event. The comments section of this post is also quite insightful.
