A snapshot of my life in black and white

Those who are on Facebook might have seen a meme going around recently asking people to post seven black and white photos of your life over seven days. No people. No explanations and then every day, challenge someone new. My friend B, nominated me and I couldn’t resist. Yesterday was my last day so I thought I would share my seven photos with you lot as well. I am presenting them with no explanation so feel free to guess… and also to join in…

100 Days of Selfies: Day 41 – 50

The last ten days have been kind of tough for me. I hit my goal weight, which was really exciting but also really kind of unsettling. I think most people have a mental picture in their mind of what they look like and mine just doesn’t match my actual reflection anymore… which has made me feel kind of weird. I am sure it will pass soon enough but as you might see from this round of selfies, I have been a bit more introspective of late. Read more…

Why you should hire Jodi Redhouse…

Most of you are probably friends with me on facebook and so you have probably seen the selection of professional pictures I’ve put up of our wedding. What you might not know is who took them. We were lucky enough to have the fabouous Jodi Redhouse behind the lens and boy was it worth the wait to get them back. Just in case you don’t believe me, I’m including a few of my favourite pics below. So far all I’ve had is compliments about just how “us” all the pictures are, which I think is about the most awesome thing you can say about wedding pictures.  Jodi has managed to capture perfectly the asthetic I was trying to achieve, as well as Paul and my quirky sense of fun. After seeing these photos I am assuming you’re going to immediately want to hire Jodi for all of your photography needs… so you can find all her details here.

And my favourite, favourite picture of all of them…

Dungeons, pandas and accidental spliff

Last night I went to London Bridge to attend the Launch of Panda Studio, where my lovely friend Z was exhibiting a couple of pieces. On the way there I randomly ran into my old work mate, Nat, whose company was having a party in the London Dungeon. How cool is that? I vote for our next work party being in a dungeon!

It was a good thing Z, gave me such good directions since the venue was cryptically called Arch 897 and turned out to be an old warehouse behind a non-descript black door. Everyone was very arty and you could clearly pick out the models and the photographers admiring (and in some cases snogging) each other. I was glad I had gone for an OTT outfit and was wearing my Hawaiian print leggings. Z, I have to say, had the most fabulous strapless dress on. She and I proceeded to get shmangled on white wine spritzers, while admiring the photography, some of the bands who were playing and the occasional photographer.

Z’s pieces were beautiful and I particularly liked one where she had these bubbles that were halfway between eyes and peacock pattern. Hopefully Z won’t mind me putting up this little snippet of work I stole off her blog

At 11.30 I had to go… since I have to be out of here at 9.45 today. I decided to be lazy and catch the bus from Clapham Junction since my heels were starting to get to me. Not quite sure how but I ended up chatting to two gorgeous boys who had glitter all around their mouths. It turned out one of them had snogged a girl with glitter on her face.. and then they’d snogged each other. Brilliant! One of them then handed me his cigarette… and since I was dying for a fag and had smoked all mine, I took it. I marvel at my own almost impossible naiveté here… especially since I had remarked earlier that  could smell weed. I genuinely believed it was a roly…  They made some attempts to get me to catch their bus, which takes me sort of close to home but nowhere near as close as my bus so we parted company with massive hugs and they disappeared into the night…

Today I am off to Newquay with Rob, Dom, Lucy, Sanna, Saoirse and Emily for a week. I have decided not to take Frank along, so that I won’t do any work… including blogging. I might work on Edgar, the dragon slayer longhand but that doesn’t even count as work cos it’s so much fun… so see you in a week campers and don’t miss me tooooo much.
