Hitchin Lavender

A few weeks back Adrian and I spent the most relaxing afternoon at Hitchin Lavender. The last time we visited was back in 2014 and considering I only live a short distance away I can’t believe this is only the second time I’ve been. This year we made a conscious effort to go and make the most of the beautiful flowers over the last few weeks of summer.

I’ve never been one to just pack a bag and go anywhere on the spur of the moment, I’m the kind of person who needs to both mentally and physically prepare for an outing, even if it is just down the road. Since I started my blog I won’t relax until I’ve got the photos I’m after. The visit to Hitchin Lavender was going to be more of a challenge than normal. I’d seen everyone’s gorgeous photos pop up all over Instagram,  I began wondering how on earth I was going to get any kind of content without having a bench to sit on and not include my wheelchair. Thanks to my very kind husband and an old picnic rug I think we managed quite well.

I’ve been to a couple of lavender farms before but none quite as large and beautiful as the one in Hitchin. There are around 25 miles of lavender rows which you can walk through and pick your own fresh flowers from. I had forgotten the amazing smell that hits you the moment you arrive, then you are immediately greeted by a sea of purple as the views from inside are quite simply stunning. The farm is well equipped for all visitors, including a gorgeous cafe and gift shop, which I obviously had to pop in before we left.

I hadn’t realised how many other bloggers came to visit Hitchin Lavender, there was a number of fashion bloggers taking photos for their Instagram and parent bloggers taking photos of their little ones collecting lavender. I was determined to get my shots too, however difficult it was.

It was a boiling hot day when we visited the lavender farms and I wasn’t sure how long I’d be able to stay. I’ve been taking a white umberella out with me to use as a parasol, I’m sure people wonder what on earth I’m doing holding a brolly in the middle of a heatwave but it’s one way of keeping the midday sun from directly beating down on me. There are a couple of shaded seating areas right near the entrance, on the day we came it was full up with people sheltering from the heat, but it is something to bare in mind if you are planning to visit.

The first place we headed for was of course the rows of lavender, after all that’s what we came for. The entrance fee to Hitchin lavender costs £6 for each adult (£4 for wheelchair users) and £3 for a child, the price includes a brown paper bag which you can fill with lavender cuttings using a pair of scissors you’re loaned for your visit. We collected two bags full of gorgeous lavender and it’s now in a vase in my bedroom, the smell is absolutely incredible. Once it’s dried out I plan on making little lavender bags to go in my wardrobes and chest of drawers. I still have a bowl of potpourri in my living room from lavender collected on my last visit and it still smells lovely.

The farm is wheelchair accessible, however the ground can be a little uneven in places but you are in the middle of a field. We were both laughing ay how I was bouncing around in my wheelchair, that’s just our sense of humour, life’s too short for taking everything seriously and I want to make the most of every moment while I can. I’d taken a large bag with me and made sure to pack sun cream, my large flask of cold water and a few other essentials.

The view of the lavender and sunflower fields were absolutely stunning. Adrian pushed me up the slight hill to where it was a bit quieter. Being the gentleman that he is, he laid the rug down amongst the lavender and lifted me down onto the ground. These are the kind of experiences I would never be able to enjoy without him and not a day goes past when I take him for granted.

It felt wonderful to be rolling around amongst the lavender, I felt totally free. There are more than one type of lavender and you can see all the different colours as well as some wild flowers. We took loads of photos and, let’s face it, the backdrop is pretty amazing. I think we both enjoyed a little time relaxing for a while, the farm was very busy yet still peaceful at the same time. Despite the heat we headed up to the field of sunflowers, however the ground was much more difficult to get across so Adrian cut me two beautiful sunflowers to take home (which you are also allowed to pick.) For about a week afterwards they were in a vase on my desk and made me smile every time I saw them. It’s always the simple pleasures in life that seem the best.

Adrian and I both needed a sugar boost before we went onto the next part of the fields, I had to sample a slice of one of the delicious cakes in the cafe. I was really impressed with the choice there was, not going for my normal chunk of chocolate cake, I sampled the passion fruit sponge instead and it was rather yummy. We both sat outside the cafe under a parasol and enjoyed the views, it was too lovely to sit indoors even on a boiling hot day. It really did feel lovely being with nature, even the bees didn’t bother me too much, just be careful if you are planning on walking amongst the lavender. You can literally hear the buzzing where ever you go.

Hitchin Lavender

Hitchin Lavender is such a dreamy place to visit and close to both London and Cambridge. It’s open later in the evenings on certain days, how amazing would it be to watch the sunset over the beautiful fields of lavender. Can you imaging how amazing the photos would be? Well there’s always next year.

It really was the perfect summer’s afternoon collecting flowers from Hitchin Lavender. we felt so relaxed when we got home, not sure if it was from the gorgeous fragrance or that we’d both switched off from everyday life. I recommend this place to anyone planning a visit over the summer. On certain days throughout the year there are workshops, events and cinema nights, so you really do have a little bit of everything while you’re there.

Have you been to Hitchin Lavender or another farm just like this one? Are you planning on visiting one next year?

Charlotte Tilbury Summer Glow Makeup

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury, it simply oozes old school glamour. My wishlist has been growing ever since I purchased the iconic nude lipstick Pillow Talk last year. I made a promise that I would treat myself to a few things from the brand and start building up a collection of my own. The packaging is divine,it makes me feel oh so glamorous with a Charlotte Tilbury product in my hand. This summer’s releases have to be my favourite, the colours are quite simply stunning. Sadly I missed out on a few Limited Editions, but there’s always next year. When I sit at my dressing table to apply something from her range I know I’m going to leave the house that morning feeling great. It’s safe to say I have a slight obsession with Charlotte Tilbury and these are the products that have become essential in my summer beauty kit and I know I’ll be wearing them for a good few weeks yet to retain that golden summer glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Summer Glow Makeup

I was using tanning drops in my morning skincare routine but there were some days I just didn’t have the time. Then the Overnight Bronze And Glow Mask came into my life and oh wow, is this worth it’s weight in gold.. I apply a thin layer all over my face and neck a couple of times a week while I’m doing my evening skincare. It develops overnight, leaving my complexion with a beautiful glowing holiday look.

Charlotte Tilbury Summer Glow Makeup

This was one product I absolutely had to get as soon as I saw it had launched. Every one was raving about it, now I get what the fuss was about. The Wonder Glow Primer is just perfect for creating that dewy, summer glow, it’s already proven to be worth every penny. I originally bought it to wear alone while on holiday and I’ve been wearing it ever since. It leaves my complexion with the most beautiful, radiant glow, giving it a subtle lit from within look. It can also be worn under foundation for an extra sunkissed look. Plus the SPF 15 will help protect your skin from the sun. All this packaged up in one bottle, what more could a girl ask for?

I’ve never been one for sculpting, I prefer a more natural look, which is why the Charlotte Tilbury FilmStar Bronze and Glow is just the perfect palette. The cool toned bronzer helps to contour your face, giving you a beautiful sunkissed complexion. The matching golden toned highlighter captures and reflects the light just where you want it. The glow from this is absolutely incredible. The shades work together to make it easy for sculpting areas of your face and creating the most gorgeous luminous complexion. The powders feel so soft and blend in beautifully, making it easy to create whatever level of coverage you want. This is ideal for anyone with fair to medium skin tones, I love how the shades give me a beautiful sunkissed glow, Also, can I just mention how gorgeous the golden packaging is, it just oozes Hollywood glamour which is what I’ve come to love about Charlotte Tilbury products.

The Pretty Youth Glow Filter is a cream to powder blush and highlighter duo. It’s designed to instantly give your complexion a lift. The two shades work together to give your skin a smooth blurred finish and make you look fresh faced and radiant. There are two different palettes to choose from, I’ve gone for Seduce Blush, a powder pink and dusky rose duo, which works perfectly with my skin tone. I wish I’d picked up the Hugging Brush that goes with these blushers, it picks up the right amount of product and applies it just where it’s needed. Having said that the brush I’m using is just as good. I find the cream to powder isn’t too drying giving my cheeks a hint of colour and blurring any imperfections. The highlight shade adds definition with the light catching all the high points of my face.

I totally missed out on the Limited Edition Bigger Brighter Eyes – Exagger-Eyes Palette, I could have kicked myself. Then Katie very kindly recommended the The Golden Goddess Eyeshadow Palette as she thought the shades would suit me, she knows me so well as her choice was spot on (thanks Katie!) I fell in love as soon as I opened the packaging. There are four stunning golden toned eyeshadows and I’ve been wearing them a lot over the summer. This is one of those palettes you don’t need to think too hard about when you’re applying it because it’s colour coded with four shades designed to prime, enhance, smoke and pop. The Taupe shade makes a beautiful day look when worn alone or use all four for something more smokey. They blend together beautifully, the pigment is incredible making this the perfect palette for any time of day and for taking in your travel bag.

I used to be scared of liquid liners, now I’m a complete convert. I find the felt tip style liners much easier to apply than a pot and thin brush, which usually ends up all over the place. The Feline Flick is a bold black shade and a really thick formula, and the pen style applicator makes it easy to control exactly where you want your liner to go. I love that it stays put all day without even smudging. Everyone should have The Feline Flick in their makeup bag.

When I discover and fall in love with a great mascara I want to buy it by the truck load. That’s how I felt when I first tried the Full Fat Lashes as you can coat your lashes once for a natural summer everyday flutter or bulid it up for some serious volume and amazing length in a bold black. There’s no flaking or clumping so it’s a fantastic mascara for hot summer days by the sea.

Charlotte Tilbury Summer Glow Makeup

 

This post wouldn’t be complete without featuring at least one Charlote Tilbury lipstick. I’m already a huge fan of Pillow Talk and Bitch Perfect and decided to invest in three more shades for this summer. The colours I’ve chosen are perfect to complete any summer glowy look.

Matte Revolution Very Victoria (left), is a beautiful browny nude, which is the perfect colour for every day. Yes, I’ll be totally honest with you, I did buy this after seeing a feature on Megan Markle and this was reportedly one her favourite shades of lipstick. I absolutely love it, the colour goes with everything and works well day to night. It’s such a beautiful shade and works well with most skin tones. The pigmentation is high and it’s incredibly long lasting, but just in case I do need to top up I also carry a tube in my handbag. It may be matte but it also has a rich creamy formula so won’t dry out the lips. I think this may have taken over from Pillow Talk as my favourite Charlotte Tilbury lipstick.

Moving away from the nudes, I wanted to inject some colour into my summer makeup bag. This time I chose one from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipsticks and loved the look of The Duchess, (centre), a natural tea rose pink shade. This range of lipsticks have light diffusing pigments to help make your lips look more fuller and they’re incredibly creamy and glide beautifully over the lips. Tree extracts help to protect your lips against UV damage and leaves them feeling soft and hydrated.

I didn’t think a coral this bright would ever suit me but Coachella Coral (right), also from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range, is a pink toned coral and works well for any skin tone. It’s such a beautiful shade which makes your lips look fuller and adds a subtle pop of colour to my summer look. I love the creamy formula which also helps protect and hydrate the lips.

The Lip Cheat Lip Liner in shade Pillow Talk, is a beautiful nude shade that will go perfectly with my nude lipsticks.. The soft, creamy pencil doesn’t drag the delicate skin, yet still creates a perfect line to re-shape and resize the outline of your lips. An absolute must in any girls makeup bag.

Charlotte Tilbury Summer Glow Makeup

I had seen mixed reviews about the Magic Cream so I didn’t jump straight on the bandwagon. However, this award winning moisturiser was soon becoming one of Charlotte Tilbury’s best selling products and I wanted to find out why. The very first time I applied this to my skin I could see the difference immediately, It gave my complexion such a boost that I looked as though I’d had a weeks worth sleep. It’s packed with Vitamin E and Rosehip Oil which really benefit the skin, it is a great moisturiser for anytime of year, especially during the warmer months, and is perfect for wearing under makeup. Hyaluronic Acid helps to create a brighter, smoother looking complexion and really does make my skin look more awake.

Charlotte Tilbury Summer Glow Makeup

If you are just starting to build up your Charlotte Tilbury Collection then I couldn’t recommend any of these products enough. I absolutely love mine and they take pride of place on my dressing table. The products I have chosen should suit most skin tones, I feel they are especially great for the summer and continuing with a sunkissed look long into those first few weeks of Autumn.

Have you tried any Charlotte Tilbury products? What’s your favourite brand for a natural glowy look?

The Perfect Summer Occasion Outfit

I love shopping for summer occasion wear, it’s probably my most favourite time of year to pick up a new outfit for a wedding or garden party. Finding the right pieces can be a bit tricky though, especially if the event is abroad or in the middle of a heatwave if you’re in the UK. I want to be comfortable and don’t want the material to cling too much, I also want to look feminine.

You don’t need to spend a fortune on your occasion wear as there are some little gems on the high street and a floaty dress would be the perfect option for any summer wedding, picnic or BBQ. I tend to go for a pink or pastel printed dresses, white would definitely be out of the question for a wedding as I wouldn’t want to upstage the bride.

The Perfect Summer Occasion Outfit

A floaty dress is an effortless way to look great and this pink, floral and bird printed dress from River Island ticks all the right boxes for me. The woven fabric is lightweight and flowy, which hangs beautifully, I love that it’s a loose floaty fit, you can eat as much as you want it will skim over a bloated tummy and you’ll still feel comfortable. I absolutely adore the print,  the birds just make it slightly different compared to a plain floral dress, this one just screams out summer and would look amazing for any Summer event. It’s the kind of dress you can just throw on with minimal effort, it has a wrap over style at both the back and front, and a tie waist and at the back of the back line, meaning it’s super flattering. The loose cap sleeves and split frill hem line make it ultra feminine and adds a touch of class, and for modesty’s sake there a mini skirt underlay so you’re not showing too much thigh. It does have quiet a deep v neckline at the front, so I’ve chosen to wear a lace camisole underneath, but hey, if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

It looks and feels very premium, yet it cost less than £60 and considering how much wear I’ll get out of this dress I think that’s an absolute bargain for occasion wear. Sometimes clothes from more affordable brands don’t always fit that well but this one fits beautifully and would make a lovely addition to your occasion wear wardrobe.

The material of the dress doesn’t crease, so you can easily slip it into your suitcase to take away with you. It would also make the perfect summer outfit for a day exploring the city while you’re on holiday and there are so many different ways to wear it. I know I’m going to be wearing this dress time and time again over the coming months, I adore the colour, the print, the design and that it’s easy to wear yet still makes me feel fabulous. I recieved so many complements on the day I wore this dress, which obviously gave my confidence a boost.

Accessories are a great way to completely change the look of an outfit, from shoes to bags, even jewellery can make a difference. This white embellished cross body bag adds a touch of elegance to any summer occasion outfit. The long strap is adjustable and can be taken off so you can carry the bag using the shorter handle or hung in the crook of your arm.

It’s the ideal size for a summer wedding, garden party or a day at the races. Inside there are two larger compartments with enough room to hold your mobile and makeup essentials. There’s also two smaller pockets which are perfect for securely storing your card holder, money and tickets. The magnetic fastening also shuts securely so the bag won’t pop open when you least expect it to.

This bag feels really good quality and definitely has designer vibes, the boucle and pearl embellishment across the front flap look absolutely beautiful and certainly adds a touch of class to any summer occasion outfit. I think it would look stunning with an evening outfit anytime of the year.

The Perfect Summer Occasion Outfit

I wore this outfit for a garden party to celebrate my cousin’s birthday so I chose these white scallop block heeled sandals, I think they work perfectly together with the dress and bag. I opted for this style as they are pretty and feminine, and they’d look amazing with other outfits in my wardrobe. They’d completely change the look of a simple dress for something less formal. These sandals are so comfortable to wear all day and easy to pop on for a day out in town or exploring the city.

Swapping my accessories will give this dress a whole new look. For an evening out I slip on a pair of pointed heels and a grab a clutch bag, or for a more casual feel I’d add a pair of flat mules and put all my daily essentials in a straw tote bag. When the weather starts to cool down I can slip on a denim jacket or faux leather biker jacket.

This type of outfit would look amazing for whatever occasion you had coming up.

Flawless Liners By Loreta

I’m not great at creating the perfect the cat eye flick, even with the best of liquid eyeliners. When I’m going out in the evening or for a special occasion I still love to apply a touch of liner so my eyes feel a little more made up.

Imagine my excitement when these Flawless Lashes By Loreta Flawless Eyeliners* arrived through the post, I couldn’t wait to put them to the test and start creating a range of different looks. Flawless Lashes By Loreta are probably best known for their amazing professional lash extensions and they have recently launched their liquid eyeliner in a range of different colours. There’s a choice of Black, Emerald Green, Beautiful Brown and Vibrant Purple.

Flawless Lashes By Loreta Flawless Liner

The liquid liner comes with a neat felt tip style fibre nib and is perfect for creating a precise line, however thick you like your liner to be. This is by far the best one I’ve tried and I found the pen really easy to handle, getting right into the areas where I wanted my liner to be. The tip isn’t too soft and won’t end up going all over the place when you’re trying to apply the liner, in fact it’s so precise that it’s easy to get right into the corners where I’ll only want the thinnest of lines.

The liner stayed on all day and didn’t even budge during the extremely hot weather we’ve recently had in the UK, which is pretty good going. Believe me, no amount of sweating, crying, eye rubbing or getting stuck in a downpour is going to smudge these little beauties! The brilliant thing is that you can easily remove it just by using your usual cleanser or eye makeup remover. I soak a little on a cotton pad and hold it over each eye for a few seconds, then gently wipe away. There’s no need to scrub too hard to remove every last bit of liner.

Flawless Liners By Loreta

If your usual shade is black or brown, why not try something different for a change. The Flawless Lashes By Loreta Flawless Liners also comes in Emerald Green and Vibrant Purple. These liners are incredibly pigmented and you’ll be guaranteed to have fun creating different looks, knowing that it will last all day without smudging. They are suitable to wear with eyelash extensions and for people with sensitive skin. I had absolutely no irritation when I wore these liners.

Each one costs £14.95 and are available from Flawless Lashes By Loreta

Finding The Confidence To Pose For Outfit Photos

A couple of months ago I was out in town with my husband and he happened to take a few “snaps” on my mobile phone, when I checked through them I absolutely loved them. They were never meant to be for a blog post but everything felt right and I felt more confident than I had done for a while prior to taking them. They seemed such natural photo’s rather than posed, so before changing my mind I quickly typed up a post on How I Style A Pleated Midi Skirt. It’s now one of my favourite posts this year.

Considering I had always been a fairly confident person, I had always felt comforable in front of the camera, but last year a few things happened that really knocked my confidence. I stopped writing fashion posts and concentrated on Beauty and other kinds of posts. I desperately wanted to get back to sharing my outfits, which was one of the reasons I started my blog almost 3 years ago.

Slowly but surely my confidence has started to come back. Now I’m no expert when it comes to what you should or shouldn’t do in your photos. I only know what’s worked for me, so I thought I’d share a few things that have helped me when I’m in front of the camera.

Finding The Confidence To Pose For Outfit Photos

What You Are Wearing

You’re outfit should never make you feel uncomfortable, you need to feel fabulous in what clothes you’re wearing. If it’s not your normal style then you won’t feel good about yourself and that will come across in any photos you take, we’re after confidence here. I made the mistake once of wearing an outfit just because everyone else was and it was “on trend”, I felt awkward all the way through having my photos taken and when I looked back at them I hated every single one. Pull items out of your wardrobe and try on every single piece of clothing you own, stand in front of the mirror, take a snap on your mobile and look back through them. If you feel 100% amazing in each outfit then those are the items you’ll feel good wearing for a photo session.

Know you best features and focus on them. Do you have amazing legs or do you love your beautiful cleavage? If you’re like me, then you’ll find it so much easier to point out areas of your body that you dislike.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Stand in front of a mirror, and practice different poses, yes you may feel strange at first, but believe me it works. Move about, find which angle you like best, we all have a side of our body that we feel more confident with. Practice with your mobile and take photos from different angles. Next time you’re in front of the camera you’ll start to feel much more confident, it’ll come naturally and you’ll just feel as though you’re taking a selfie.

Finding The Confidence To Pose For Outfit Photos

Be Inspired

Scroll through Pinterest and Instagram and check out some poses you’d like to try. I don’t mean the ones of models on magazine shoots, I’m talking about bloggers or maybe you have a super confident friend who always knows just how to stand in front of the camera. experiment in front of the mirror first until you find one that’s naturally you and makes you feel really confident. Create a board on Pinterest especially for poses you like, so it’s always there for inspiration if your mind goes blank.

The Location

I’d think nothing of having that family snap taken on a day out or busy town on holiday, yet as soon as I thought about an outfit photo my confidence just fizzled away. Find somewhere quite for your first few sessions, even your back garden if you have one. These photos were taken on a quiet afternoon at Broadway Gardens in Letchworth Garden City, so there was hardly anyone about to watch what I was doing and put to put me off having my photo taken.

For me, I need to not only think about the location itself, but also there needs to be somewhere for me to sit as well, such as a bench, wall or a place to lay a rug. I honestly don’t feel confident in photos where I’m sitting in my wheelchair and thankfully I have a husband who is able to assist me out of my wheelchair onto something else.

What About Those Hands?

I never knew quite what to do with my hands and very often ended up looking like I was trying swat a fly. I always had a laugh afterwards but they weren’t quite the look I was going for. I found holding some sort of prop made it much easier. Use whatever you’ve got, a bag, sunglasses, book, magazine, flowers, a coffee cup and even holding the loose folds of a skirt or casually placing your hands in the pockets of a pair of jeans will stop those arms flapping about all over the place.

Know Your Photographer

You wouldn’t have a photographer turn up on the morning of your wedding without getting to know them first. Research their work, scroll through the gallery of their website and meet up with them a few time to discuss what sort of photos you’re after. If it’s a friend, your mum, sister or partner who will be taking the photos explain to them what kind of photos you’d like. Maybe show them your Pinterest board and those angles you took of yourself on your mobile. Explain whether you’d like close ups of your bag or shoes and do you want to include more of the background in some of the photos. Most of all, trust them. They may take a few photos at angles you’d not thought of simply because you’re moving around naturally as they are snapping away. You might even come across some photos they’ve taken which you absolutely love and will want to share with the world.

Get Moving

Don’t be afraid to move about, turn around, move your head up, look over your shoulder towards the camera, walk about. Let the photographer take as many shots as they want with you moving around naturally, even if you end up deleting most of them, there’s bound to be some amazing shots in there and ones that you’ll look super confident in.

Have Fun

Some of my most favourite photos are ones where I’m doing something daft and it’s obvious I was having a great time, like this one below. There are photos on my blog where I’ve got the fit of giggles and Adrian’s taken a photo at that precise moment, it shows that I was really enjoying myself. If I get tired or start to feel uncomfortable, then I’ll have a break, go for lunch and a coffee and try again later.

Finding The Confidence To Pose For Outfit Photos

Don’t Worry About Anyone Else

It’s so easy to think about what other people might be saying when you’re in public having your photo taken. You might feel like someone will judge you, even after you’ve posted the photos on your Instagram, Facebook or Blog. It’s easier said than done but wipe all those thoughts out of your mind. If you’re in a town or busy area having your photos taken, most people are just getting on with their own business. So what if couple of people stop to look, it’s only because you look absolutely amazing in your outfit, looking super confident and having the time of your life. Ignore and delete the odd negative comment you may get on social media and completely forget about it. Concentrate on the positive feedback people leave you so that the next time won’t be half as scary.

And remember, even if you end up with 10 photos after the photographer has taken 500, those are the ones you’ll look at and feel great about yourself. There may be some hilarious photos were the camera has gone click when you’re mid sentence or faffing around (his words) making sure everything is in place. I’ve kept some on my computer where I’m telling Adrian something and the expression on my face is priceless, it makes me laugh every time I see it. I won’t delete it, but I definitely won’t be sharing it either.

Do you have any tips on taking outfit photos? Are you super confident or a little on the shy side when it comes to having your photo taken?
