Resort style fashion editorial photoshoot number two - behind the scenes!

the grand hotel torquay Devon photoshoot location

After another very early morning, I was also recently involved in a shoot with an absolute dream team at The Grand Hotel in Torquay. The images are also under wraps for the time being, but you can get a behind the scenes peek below.

The Grand Hotel was stunning - the view from the pool area felt like you could have been in LA - with a slighter colder climate of course! A beautiful large Victorian hotel, it's located right on the seafront. The staff couldn't have been more hospitable - and even fed us lunch while we were working! I'm definitely returning to try their al fresco summer dining by the poolside.

Hot pink embellished hoodie by Dakota Rae Dust - currently loving!

It's no secret that I love colourful, sparkly, things, and so when I discovered Dakota Rae Dust on Instagram I was immediately smitten.

From her Bristol studio Bec creates hand embellished wearable goods using bold vinyl prints and vintage and preloved textiles - sweaters, earrings, purses, rosettes. All with a  a heavy dose of colour (I think she shares my love of PINK!) and a smattering of sparkle.

I loved the style of her hand embellished sweaters and Bec created a custom oversized hoodie for me with her fluro pink and orange design. I love it, it's perfect for days when you want to feel comfortable but still fun and colourful. I'm already eyeing up my next hoodie!

Check out Dakota Rae Dust here and Bec's Instagram here.

Perfume review - Tom Ford's Private Blend

If you've read my previous blog post about my tropical perfume favourites, you know that
a) I'm very fussy about perfumes
b) I like coconut scents
c) I'm not very adventurous with perfume!

Well for the last few months I've been sniff-testing Tom Ford's Private Blends and I can officially say, I'm in LOVE!

There are two that my my nose is particularly taken with - Soleil Blanc (which is right up my coconut loving, tropical perfume wearing, street). And then I have also found myself strongly attracted to its musky, exotic sister, Santal Blush.

As mentioned previously, I encourage you to spray sparingly when testing a new scent, and then see how it blends with your skin. I've done this several times, and both scents are delicious. If they weren't £158 each, I'd buy both!

In the meantime, I'm narrowing down my favourite for my Christmas wish list!

Getting festive at Exeter Christmas Fair, Westpoint

IMG_0431.JPG

We recently spent two very festive days at the huge Christmas Fayre at Westpoint Arena in Exeter, Devon. There were Christmas songs. Mulled wine. Christmas jumpers. And a huge variety of stalls!

Sadie's parents also popped down from Wales - this is the first time they've seen her at a show, as she'd always lived in New Zealand! See her mum here! ->>>

We had two fantastic days (albeit, Sadie's feet were very sore afterwards!), and loved meeting both customers and fellow artisans alike.

Merry Christmas!
