As far as cliches go, I tend to avoid them. However, the saying that imperfections are what make us beautiful is in my opinion 100% true. Without the differences big and little that make us all unique, we’d wouldn’t be ourselves and to be honest we’d probably be downright boring!
The dreamy bank holiday has left me feeling like I’ve actually been on my holidays. When taking these photos it was as if we were genuinely exploring a city abroad and for a moment I forgot I was still in Nottingham and that I still have uni work to do…
Sometimes I feel like I come across as a stereotypical Brit on this blog because all I ever seem to talk about is the weather. But I am soooo beyond chuffed that the sun had it’s hat on this week, it’s definitely put me in such a good mood considering all the work I’ve got on my plate at the moment.
Being back home in Wales sometimes catches me in a bit of a creativity rut, especially because the quiet town I live in is a world away from the busy city of Nottingham. The weather is unreliable (much like the most of the UK) and while in summer the rolling hills and pretty countryside is lovely, for now the surrounding wet and muddy fields aren’t an ideal setting for spring outfit shooting.
April? It feels like we may as well still be in the depths of winter with the rain and wind that insists on sticking around. If the sun won’t show itself, though, that’s just an excuse (as if I needed another one) to invest in some colourful and refreshing spring pieces to brighten up even the gloomiest of days.
This is probably my favourite outfit combination and photo shoot in a looong time. Even though the weather has yet to make its mind up (apparently it’s meant to snow again?) spring is slowly starting to appear with the odd sunny day and some colour returning to the world outside. Despite the shock of losing an hour – not ideal when you’re panicking about a deadline – clocks going forward have officially marked later sunsets which gets me so ready for summer nights, no matter how far off they may be.
If you couldn’t already tell, I have developed a slight obsession with the colour pink. I’m not quite sure where it stemmed from, but it has taken over my bedroom: pink duvet, candles, throw, cushions… and now it’s gradually working its way into my wardrobe.
