Blogging 101: Sometimes all you need is a tripod. 


We all know that feeling when we desperately need some pics but our friends are busy, the boyfriend is too (or you don't even have one) and not everyone knows a photographer as well. But who even needs a second person anyway? We can do it ourselves - be that boss girl and think of alternatives. Alternatives like a tripod or even a wall.

We can all do it with a little bit of practice, it's not that hard and also kind of fun. But be prepared for odd looks, weird comments and people trying to join in.

How to take blogger photos


1. Find a quiet place. Not only so the photo doesn't have strangers in it, but also because you don't want to be scared of someone stealing your camera. You also want to feel comfortable, because I think it reflects in photos if you don't feel 100%.

2. Have a good tripod - or sturdy surface. I love my tripod, it has saved so many last-minute projects of mine. There are so many different varieties like spider ones which you could even wrap around a streetlight and fits into any bag!

I got mine for free when I purchased my 6D and is amazing. It's tall enough to give me that perfect angle and I can customize all three legs as well - the perfect freebie.

3. Capturing Details is easy. I love detail photos and it's so easy with a tripod, just stand a bit closer and press that button and perfect. You can also take close up photos of your shoes by just lowering the tripod legs.

4. Autofocus is much easier. When I take flatlays I swear on manual focus but when it comes to taking photos of myself using the autofocus is so much easier.

5. You have the control. I had quite a few catastrophic photo shoots in the last year, from one guy even turning up drunk. When you take your own photos you have control of everything; from angles to editing and what pics you want.



Final Tip, you can get a remote trigger which means your camera will take a photo when you press the button - so no need for timer and standing in the same pose for 10 seconds.

Another FYI, my camera is WIFI enabled and connects to my phone. I remote control it via an app and immediately receive all the photos on my phone - yes to technology.

Body Confidence with Jack Wills || Scars, Stretch Marks, Cellulite - We all have them. 

In today's social media driven world it can be hard to not compare ourselves to others. Feel insecure, uncomfortable and anything but confident. We all look the same underneath, we all have cellulite, stretch marks or scars. The only difference is that some decide to hide it, others ignore it and only a few embrace it. There is nothing wrong with a few butt dimples - we all have them, so why hide or retouch them?

All the supermodels in magazines are retouched, Photoshop can do wonders if you know how to use it. Don't compare yourself to something that doesn't exist in this world, like a body without any marks or cellulite.

Having any of them doesn't make you unfit, unhealthy or unattractive. Our bodies are made this way. It's time to say bye to a stigma that lets woman believe cellulite is something bad. There is no cure. But why would we need one anyway?

We all have down days, we are only human. Body confidence is all about accepting yourself; on the up and down days. Today I'm having a crappy day, my stomach is bloated like crazy and my face is still swollen. I just feel like curling up on the sofa and feeling sorry for myself, whilst hiding from people. Own yourself, your body and be that person who lights up a room when walking in. Accept yourself. Change the outlook on your body and remember to love yourself. 

But in case you are having a down day, check out these babes who are totally rocking body-positivity with their posts and words.

Since my surgery a year ago I haven't worn a Bikini. To be more specific, I haven't worn anything that could perhaps show it. But I'm done hiding it, it's a part of me now. Just like my butt dimples are. We only have one life, don't waste it by hating on your body.


 MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY PICKS THIS MONTH ... CHANEL and DIOR.

A new month, another payday and so many new items are filling up my wardrobe and make- up bag. My love for fashion has now spread and also merged into a love for beauty and luxury items - my bank balance is definitely not a fan.

Understand your value and know your worth.

The big world of blogging can be so scary to a newbie. We've all been there, we've all done it and yet I see so many starters repeat the same mistakes we've all done already. So why not share our mistakes with others?
