It may not come as a huge shock to you but I love being in front of the camera, you could say I’m a bit of a poser. Well, I
do have pink hair but, whatever the reason, I tend to get asked to model at workshops pretty regularly. Which is fine and dandy by me – I’m also an unapologetic workshop-whore. Double win!
So when my buddy
Chris Barber announced his ‘Barbershop’ (see what he did there?!) over the summer he emailed me soon after to ask if I’d guest speak and model for the photo shoot portion of the day, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. For some reason he also wanted Gareth to come along too. God knows why… don’t you know it’s supposed to be all about me?! (in case my sarcasm isn’t translating this is of course a joke).
The workshop took place in London this week. We laughed, we learnt, we laughed some more.
Although this probably caused the biggest laugh of them all…
But I think you’ll agree it was worth it for the shot Chris got.
And I love attendee
Ronnie for capturing it on camera (and her husband Craig snapping us watching it for the first time!)

A Sunday Kind of Love: Looking Forward
September 2, 2012
On Friday Gareth & I packed up the car (again!) and drove down to Brighton (again!) for another School of Rock blogging workshop. The event was fabulous, my class were ace, and the whole thing left me with a warm n fuzzy feeling inside. As we drove away that night (slightly topped up with the celebratory after-workshop-wines - don't worry Gareth was driving!) I turned to him and gushed away about how incredibly blessed I feel. Like, how is this my life? As someone who tentatively dipped her little toe into the blogosphere all those years ago, I can't quite believe that people now line up to come and hear me speak about my journey. Like seriously... this is nutso. Even Darren Rowse of Problogger is singing my praises. Yeah no big deal or anything...
A Sunday Kind of Love: Airstream Photo Booth by The Photo Emporium
October 7, 2012
I was proper thrilled when they guys at The Photo Emporium offered to lend us their - wait for it - airstream photo booth (!!!!) for the last Photography Farm. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a serious photo booth junkie and the fact that it was inside an actual airstream made me even more excited! In fact we basically planned the whole damn shoot around it.
A Sunday Kind of Love: I’m Dreaming of a Teal Christmas…
December 9, 2012
There are Christmas gift guides a-plenty around the interwebz at this time of year. But that hasn't stopped me getting in on the action! We're planning on decorating our living room a tealy greeny colour (once we can finally agree on some wallpaper - seriously, this is testing our relationship!) so needless to say I'm having a moment with it all...
A Sunday Kind of Love: Hanging Out with The Darlings & The Lasertrons in NYC!
May 6, 2012
The last 3 days have been a whirlwind of excitement and adventure as Gareth & I have meandered around New York City with our friends The Darlings and The Lasertrons...wow our surname is so boring! We've been a right motley crue of chaos with late night pizza dates, neon pedicures, being papped in Tompkins square, flower crowns, florescent skirt purchases, passing out on sofas (yeah...that was me) and shopping til we dropped (sorry Gareth!)
A Sunday Kind of Love: Fuji Instax Instant Cameras
May 27, 2012
I've had my Instax camera for a few years, but recently I've fallen head over heels in love with it again! From Omaha to LA and from Vegas to New York, my trusty Instax has traveled with me to document my friends and frolics along the way.
A Sunday Kind of Love: Rooftop Dance Parties, Brooklyn Bridge Paparazzi & Extreme Cinemaing
May 13, 2012
After the aceness of last week I wasn't sure my New York adventure could get any better...oh how wrong I was! On Monday we waved goodbye to The Lasertron's (boohoo) and Gala & I then basically spent the whole week distracting each other. I'd love to move here one day, but if I did I fear neither of us would ever get any work done! We had too much fun doing things like this...
A Sunday Kind of Love: Emotional Brilliance with LUSH
July 22, 2012
Ever since I blogged that shocking video that LUSH put together to raise awareness of animal testing in the cosmetics industry, I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. Every morning I've been worrying whether the things I'm putting on my face have somehow played a part in keeping this awful practice the norm. So you can imagine my elation when I found out LUSH were bringing out a make up range! It launched worldwide yesterday and I was up bright and early to head into town to get some first hand experience of it. "You're mad", Gareth said, "going into town on a Saturday. It will be mental", "It will be worth braving the crowds for..." I responded, "I'm doing my bit for the bunnies."
A Sunday Kind of Love: Pom Pom Factory

I don't know if you've heard, but these little colourful balls of joy have been getting a slightly bad rep of late. Brides love them, bloggers love them, but some wedding suppliers are (so I've been told) a little over them. We've all seen them styled in the same old same old way over and over so I can see their point. It can be slightly tiresome.
