Pushing myself creatively is something that’s always on my mind. Especially with my photography. I love learning new skills and I think that’s why photography is something I enjoy so much. You’ll never run out of things to photograph or techniques to try. I think that’s why my camera kit wishlist will never stop growing! When Viking Direct invited me along to their photography masterclass with professional photographer, Elouisa Georgiou, I had to go. It was hosted at the Botanist in town- a perfect backdrop for beautiful photos. I am still learning how to use manual mode on…

Cameras have always been a central part of my life. I used to beg to use the family camera on holiday, and now I use them in my degree and freelance work and of course, for my blog. My camera collection keeps growing and I am always chasing a new lens, new camera or new editing software. As much as I love my DSLR and my vlogging camera, I’m always looking to up my game. Now that I’m trying to work more on my Youtube channel, I’m looking to try new things. One of those new things,  is a good…

Over the years, I’ve been a brunette, a blonde and a redhead. My hair has become an utter mess due to constant experimentation with it, and I’ve been hating it for awhile now. I was trying to grow my natural hair colour out, in the hopes that I would have long, healthy, natural hair in time for my graduation. Or, at the very least, have natural hair that a hairdresser could transform in November, in time for my birthday and master’s graduation. But spending months scraping my hair back into a bun to hide the ever-growing mess was another thing…

  Now that I have more free time due to the summer holidays, it’s got me thinking that I’m not writing enough. I miss the days when a blog was about recording your life and passions and not just adverts, marketing or discussing big issues or competition. I loved reading blog posts that were just people talking about their everyday lives and in the spirit of the first blogs I ever read, I’ve decided to revive the ‘diary’ tag on my blog. Friday 22nd June 2018- Going for a walk  Today has been wonderful. You know one of those easy…

Newcastle is going through some amazing changes right now with the introduction of plenty of new exciting things to see and do. The newest place to arrive is Antler. I was pretty excited to be invited to the VIP Launch for Antler, the new alpine themed bar in Newcastle. Inspired by the alpine ski lodges from Austria and Switzerland and serving Bavarian food, it’s definitely going to be an exciting addition to the Newcastle nightlife. Located at 55 Degrees North, it’s right in the centre of the city. A few minutes walk from either Central Station or Monument, and also…

It’s now June and I’ve been living pretty much the same routine since last September but still haven’t blogged about it! If you’ve seen my BorrowMyDoggy  posts you’ll know that I’ve been looking after other people’s dogs for the past couple of years at university. I also try to talk openly about my mental health and in particular how it affected me during my degree and I realised that having time with a dog was a great way to improve my mental health. So here are a few things I’ve taken from borrowing a dog: 1. Taking care of something…

I will admit how much I fangirl over In The Frow. Victoria has been one of my blogging inspirations for years and her content continues to inspire and amaze me. Way back in January, I attended the Google Pixel event which was hosted by Victoria. For me that was a chance to meet someone whose content I had admired for years, play with some amazing tech and I even got to chat cameras with Alex. Last week when I saw that she was hosting an event with Fenwick in Newcastle to talk summer fashion, I immediately booked my ticket. To get…

I have been waiting for May  to attend our friends’ wedding for over a year! A chance to travel, a wedding, the start of my summer holidays- I was so ready! Their wedding was taking place in Northern Ireland, so we booked ourselves into a cottage, hired a rental car and booked our flights. I was quite excited as I’ve never been there before, but we all agreed we will definitely be heading back for another visit! We arrived at Belfast airport and once we had our hire car, headed straight to our little cottage just north of the town…

Roses have been used for centuries to give a feminine note to perfume . Therefore a rose scented perfume is perfect as the first perfume to be released by Marks and Spencer for their ‘Rosie for Autograph’ collection…     (image source) “As with my lingerie collection, I was drawn to the elegance and simplicity of the centifolia rose used in the fragrance. A rare, vintage style flower, it really encapsulates what this fragrance is about to me – a fresh yet mysterious scent, which feels luxurious and sexy”  Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. I have always been a big fan of Rosie…

Today I finally got off my butt and out on my bike. I’ve been meaning to but I seriously struggle to get out the door. I’m trying to work on my self-efficacy over the next few months and especially on holding myself responsible for my own life and decisions. Part one of that journey: starting my weight-loss journey by getting out on my bike more often. I haven’t been out on my bike since 2017!! Whilst I was out on this ride, I finally had time to myself to just think. So here are a few things I learned on…
