Be your own Valentine

Be your own Valentine

I’m sure it hasn’t escaped your notice that Valentine’s Day is coming up – my inbox has been flooded with emails suggesting chocolates, jewellery, lingerie … you know, the usual. But as I’m sure you’ll remember from previous years, I’m personally not a big fan of Valentine’s Day because I don’t think that you should only celebrate your love for others (whether they’re friends, family or your partner) once a year. I think that you can do that any day. This year, I’ve decided to be my own Valentine. View Post

All you need is love … and brunch

All you need is love and brunch

I’m just going to come right out and say it – I am not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. I celebrate the love I have for my partner, my friends and my family more than just one day a year, and I really don’t think that it needs to be commercialised with a push to spend big money on diamonds, flowers and chocolates (not that I’m opposed to any of those things!). That being said, I like that there is a reminder to celebrate love – not just your love for others, but also for yourself.

Instead of (or in addition to, if that’s your jam) celebrating Valentine’s Day with chocolate and expensive gifts, do things a little bit differently. Here are a few of my suggestions on great ways to celebrate love (any day of the year). View Post

Plus Size Lingerie

Valentine’s Day is coming up next month, and whether you’re single or loved up I believe that every woman should have lingerie that makes her feel like a million dollars. This is a great chance to find lingerie that makes you feel like a goddess, whether it is to wear for your lover or for yourself, so I’ve picked out some of my favourite plus size lingerie to help you look and feel fabulous.

What a wonderful week #7

1. Remember that job interview I went for last month? I signed my contract this week and will be starting at the end of the month – working part time as a library assistant! Perfect for the final year of my degree.

2. An amazing swimsuit shoot with the lovely Cassie Ace, at Stanmore Bay (pictured above). There is nothing that makes me appreciate my job more than being able to photograph someone I admire in a stunning location, and then being able to swim in the ocean, all while the beach is practically deserted because it’s Monday morning and everyone else is stuck in the office. Keep an eye out for pictures from this shoot in the weeks to come… View Post
