just a little catch up…

Had a nice weekend with the boy, fairly quiet and didn’t do much but spent the day in Ncl today, drinking coffee frappucinos, eating rocky road and enjoying the sunshine. The lucky sod is off to see his best friend in Spain on thurs…I’m dying for a holiday!! Luckily not long to wait since me and the boy are off to kefalonia for a fortnight in August. I cannot wait! Been stocking up on summer essentials….scored an awesome bikini in the topshop sale for Β£4!!! Not to mention sorting myself out with sandals etc….Kurt Geiger of course πŸ™‚

First these cute pink suede ones, which nearly got trashed watching the england match with lager flying all over. Then I got these jelly ones are french connection….perfect for the beach.

On a different note…for those of you who haven’t seen the courier blog, here’s a few of my favourites from the shoot. I love the way the photos turned out, and I think all the outfits work well.

Next shoot I’ll be involved with is going to be for Etc magazine- a luxury lifestyle mag published by the Sunderland Echo.
If you’re curious then you can view an emag of Etc here
Exciting times πŸ™‚ its going to be at Belsay Hall


The grounds and halls look amazing.
Not to mention the grandeur of the interior…



Got another busy week ahead after spending last week learning more about newspapers from The Journal, Chronicle and Sunday Sun, and working for The Crack so should be fun. Not to mention trying to sort the stuff out for the Etc shoot, which is going to be on monday the 12th so not long……busy busy busy.

Well I guess it keeps me out of trouble!

    I want those sandles!! Love the shade of pink and they look comfortable. Perfect for the area I live in. I am in Florida, in Fort Lauderdale by the beach. : )

    Totally weird coincidence, but I'm about to write a portion of my novel set in Sunderland, which I actually had never heard of and looked up specifically for the book. Totally weird!
