Photography Backdrops on Your Doorstep

Sponsored post

I've been blogging for a few years now, but I won't lie, one thing I still struggle with is finding a perfect backdrop for my fashion photography. I often got by in the early days in my bedroom or back garden with a tripod, but since moving to a city and being in rented flats with small bedrooms and no gardens, I've had to learn the art of scouting locations. Today's post, brought to you by Panasonic, features a few of my suggestions for places you can find in just about any city...

Currently Listening To...

I feel like music is something sorely lacking from this blog. I love music. I'm the kind of person who can hear a song and immediately recall a certain memory, person or emotion associated with that song, and whose Spotify saved list and vinyl collection grows pretty rapidly. I actually added a lil' Spotify playlist at the bottom of my sidebar a few months ago of a few pretty songs to listen to as you browse!

Beauty Worth the Splurge

We all know that highstreet makeup isn't anything to sniff at, but I've got to admit that I do love high end makeup. I think as long as you find a product that works amazingly, it's totally worth the money, especially as you use makeup most days! On that note, here are the beauty bits I'm more than happy to fork out for...

Why You Should Change Your Hair... Now

Ok, maybe ignore the title of this post if you're super happy with your hair right now. But for those of you who are considering a chop or dye job and can't decide whether to go ahead with it or not, this one is for you...

A Twist on Red Tees and Blue Jeans

I love denim, and I think one of the most classic looks in fashion is blue jeans and a red tee. I don't know what it is, but the combo is just so damn pretty. However, sometimes you need to be a lil bit dressy and so in steps this blouse, which guess what - I just love with jeans...

My Summer Shoe Wardrobe

I do love shoes, but I've never really been a Shoe Person. I tend to buy a pair then wear them to death, then move onto the next pair. And, I'm normally a black ankle boots lover. But when summer comes around those guys just don't cut it. When I'm not in trainers I need something that's lighter and a tad dressier, so along come summer shoes...

Fragrance Favourites

As the years go by I get more and more obsessed with perfume. I'm not so much of a hoarder that I have lots of untouched bottles - I use them all up! - but I do have a little collection growing. I thought I'd do a run-down of my collection, the fragrances I always wear, and explain what ones are nice and what ones I couldn't live without. As in, I'd buy them over and over again...

Summer-to-Autumn ASOS Wishing

I've never really been one for wishlists but as I was browsing ASOS and dreaming up some blog posts, I thought I would just merge the two! Here are the pieces I'm wishing for - still bright enough to hang onto summer, but moving away from the minimal fabric into something more comfortable for autumn...

Navy, White & Red All Over

I know these trousers have been featured on my blog already, but I just couldn't resist photographing them again when I wore them in Barcelona. This was my outfit of choice for the day we visited the Sagrada Familia - shoulders needed to be covered and short shorts were a no. So, my dreamy striped trousers were worn again...

The August Post

July started with me coming back from a lovely holiday, had me moving home for a few weeks while I'm between leases, and ended with me getting ready to move into my new flat. In between all the moving about, I was searching for jobs, buying pretty clothes, working on the Freshers issue of Magdalen, and generally just trying to organise my life. How one person can have so many belongings, I'll never know. Anyway, here's a look at the month ahead...
