So I promise I am on the very last few days of my holiday, I know it has felt like forever. You can actually count the days on one hand. While it does make me a little sad to think I will have to say good bye to this beautiful island, I must also be honest with you and let you know that I am also excited to return back to London. I have however, been loving the warmer days here and not sure I am ready for the rainy cold weather forecast that I see on my iPhone. Just between you and me I have a light jumper on for the cooler evening temperature of 23 degrees (it was 35 during the day so that is like a ten degree difference).
Anyway, it got me thinking of some content I shot with the stunning and stylish Tess Montgomery before I left. A reminder that the art of layering is how you survive the cool temperature and if you match your surroundings even better. I am just hoping to pack some sunshine with me.
Continuing from last weeks blog post I thought I would share with you the video content from my shoot with fashion stylist Monikh Dale. I will keep this post short and let my work speak for itself. It was such a fun shoot and if you like what you see don't forget you only have a few more days left to head to Selfridges, where you can create your own perfect lipstick shade or just ask for the Monikh Bride shade. Let me know your thoughts below.
As I am on holiday in sunny Hawaii, I have yet to pick up my 5D. I have instead really enjoyed just using my iPhone and my little Fuji point and shoot. I have however, been inspired by this beautiful location and have a few fun ideas for some fashion shoots when I get back (or if anyone in Oahu wants to shoot send me a message). This place is a location hot spot and I have been loving the local retro buildings.
Anyway, before I left I had the pleasure of shooting some content with the stunning Monikh Dale. It was an early start to the day but it was totally worth it. Not every morning you get to run around Selfridges and have free range to shoot content. Monikh had created her own shade of nude lipstick with the wonderful Estee Lauder team. You can check out more images and the video content here. You can purchase this shade or create your own at Selfridge London till the 13th of October.
So preoccupied with packing I almost forgot to post this weeks piece. Now I am going to start by stating clearly that this isn't a paid post although I was kindly gifted a bottle of Advance Night Repair after a shoot with the Estee Lauder team and I can totally understand why they sell ten bottles of this magic serum every minute around the world.
Now my favourite trick I have picked up on shoot (thanks Kavita) is to mix a drop of this magic potion in with my foundation. Trust me, this simple trick creates a wonderful natural glow. I honestly get so many complements when I add a drop of ANR in with my foundation while creating my everyday no fuss make up look. I don't wear too much makeup while working as I find it always ends up on my camera, but sometimes I got to minimise those late night editing panda eyes. Anyway, it is so simple that even a novice or less-is-more kinda girl can get involved and that is exactly why I love it. You can watch the video I created with Kavita Cola below and recommend if you are a ANR fan to give it a go!
