SECRET GARDEN - PART 2




As promised here's the second instalment of my collaboration with Azura Bay and Lizzie Churchill. There were too many amazing images to share, I just had to split the shoot into two blogs! Again I'm wearing the ethically source lingerie and clothing which can be purchased directly from Azura Bay. For this part of the shoot we took a more Mediterranean approach, inspired by the lemon groves and hazy warm summer days in Italy, if only we we really shooting in this beautiful part of the world. I hope you like the images!

SIMPLE THINGS


It's the little things that matter. The smell of the salty air as you walk out for a surf, the sound of a delicious feast cooking on a BBQ or the taste of a freshly made cocktail. All of these moments are what make me happy and really isn't that all we want to be?

So when my husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday and our one year wedding anniversary, I knew just the thing - sleep under the stars, wake up to the waves and dine outdoors. Luckily for me, we did just that. 

Packing up the van we made our way to down the coast to my favourite campsite, Trevedra Farm. Set on top of one of the most breath taking beaches in Cornwall, it has everything you could possibly need and it's even had a little update to the shower and toilet facilities, but has still managed to keep it's working farm rustic charm. 

We sat by the fire, drank Aluna Coconut and cloudy apple and munched on cheese and crackers. Having time away from the distractions of modern life really is food for my soul. I crave that feeling of escapism and this weekend scratched that itch. When you take yourselves away from your normal routine; dinner, TV, bed! You actually get to chat to one another, you can tell stories, share your dreams and make plans and for some reason both myself and Ben seem to do this so much better when sat round a campfire. 

I had my perfect birthday and the most wonderful one year wedding anniversary and all in all I think it cost us about £60!

SECRET GARDEN - PART 1


“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...” 
― Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Secret Garden


Spring really is the most beautiful season. Nature is reborn and I personally feel like I have a new found purpose. Lizzie and myself knew we wanted to capture this feeling for our spring collaboration with Azura Bay. We wanted to immerse ourselves in a secret garden, drink tea and listen to the birds sing and yes this was all for "work" I promise. But that's enough from me, let Lizzie's work speak for itself.

A WEEKEND IN CANNES

It's not everyday one of your best friend get's married in Cannes and not all your holidays are spent with friends but this particular weekend I got to not only celebrate the marriage of two amazing humans in the South of France, but I got to spend this time with some of the people who make my life epic! 

If you haven't been to Cannes here's some advice, prepare to spend a good chunk of cash and take a camera. There is beauty, character and rustic French culture to capture around every corner and cobbled street. You may pay close to €6 for a bottle of water but you'll get enjoy a breath taking view whilst you drink it. So my bank balance might look a little sorry for itself but you cannot take it with you and I would rather make memories and as my husband always says ... We live a champagne lifestyle on a panda pop wage!

SUMMER SKINCARE



With summer fast approaching and holiday season about to kick off I wanted to share my summer skincare routine with my readers and give you all an insight into what my daily skin routine consists of.

It's been nearly one year since I began using Spiezia Organics and I have genuinely seen a transformation in my skin, but before I go any further, I want to clarify that this blog post isn't an add, or me trying to force you into buying skincare products; it's simply me sharing my skincare regime and offering up the question, do you really know what's in your skin care?

For a few years now I have been trying to make a conscious effort to use natural and organic skincare products. Products that won't harm my skin or the environment, which ultimately lead me to team up with Made For Life by Spiezia Organics. Their skin loving products are made in Cornwall and only contain natural, skin friendly ingredients. You won't find a single microbead in any of their products and they also don't contain any synthetic chemicals including parabens. If you don't already know, these chemicals harm your skin and have even been linked to cancer, which begs the questions, why would you want to rub something into your skin which could damage you on the inside and out?

Skincare has always been important to me, I spend a lot of my time out in the elements and more time in front of the camera, meaning I have to take extra care when looking after my skin - especially during the summer months.

Every day I cleanse, tone and hydrate my skin, I wear a high level of SPF daily, to help prevent sun damage and also lessen my hyper-pigmentation. I drink lots of water and take a range of vitamins and supplements to keep my body happy and nutritionally balanced.

This is how I start and end every day. These four products are AMAZING!

Step 1 - DAILY CLEANSING BALM

Step 2 - REPLENISH & CLARIFY TONER

Step 3 - DAILY REJUVENATING FACE OIL

Step 4 - AGE WELL INTENSIVE MOISTURISING BALM
