How To Feel Confident On Camera

image

Feeling confident on camera is something I’m learning to do, I’m not going to lie I haven’t found it very easy, but I’m going to share some pieces of wisdom I’ve picked up along the way. As someone who isn’t overly body confident having to take multiple photos in outfits where the main focus was on my body and what I was wearing I wasn’t really a fan. I’ve been known to go over and over photos after a photoshoot, scrutinising every detail until I hate every single one. Obviously that’s not a good way to go about things and I saw that I needed to try and work on it.

Victoriana Style

I, for one, love the Victoriana style, particularly for blouses and dresses as it’s such a classic, vintage and pretty look. It ties into my style really well as it’s very girly and I think it’s going to be a big trend this autumn/winter. As always, click on the links to shop the items which I think capture this trend the best!

Why The Sea Is My Happy Place

IMG_7333.JPG

I’ve always found the sea very relaxing, it’s one of the most beautiful things on Earth and whenever I’m at the beach everything just seems to be okay. The gentle lap of the waves combined with the fresh sea air clears my head and lets me focus on myself, whilst reminding me of the beauty in the world around us. Not only that but I also seem a lot more inspired when I’m at the beach. I’ve been known to have complete writers block but after visiting the sea I’ve written countless chapters of books, poems and blog posts! The beauty of the sea is simply astounding.

Reconnecting with yourself is an important part of mindfulness and the sea offers you the chance to do just that. The natural wonder reminds you that focusing on your mind, body and soul is an integral part of life and by doing so you can take the spirit of the sea – its beauty and freedom – and implement it into your own life.

How To Travel In Style

IMG_7345.JPG

My friends and family always laugh at me because I always go dressed to the airport as if I could possibly be heading to a fancy restaurant the minute I land. It’s not my fault I want to travel in style! I always feel very glamorous and confident at the airport, I’ve never really been able to explain why, but I want my outfit to match how I feel. Plus, the airport is probably the most likely place I’ll meet a celebrity, if I ever will, so I hardly want to be looking like a slob. This reason also makes my friends and family make fun of me but it’s true!

I usually tend to wear a dress or playsuit when travelling because I want my legs to be free; I suffer with really bad swelling in my ankles and feet whenever I travel so not restricting my legs is the best plan. For this trip to Portugal I decided to wear this dress as it’s comfortable and light enough to keep me cool when I arrive in my rather hot destination. The blue and white colour scheme is very bright and summery, and also reminds me of Europe! The white detail across the top adds something a little different which I really like.

I paired this dress with my favourite shoes of the moment – my suede brown sandals from New Look.  I’m really sad that I can’t seem to find these online, I don’t know if they were an in store exclusive, but I’ll link some alternatives here and here. You can always pop into your local New Look and see if they’ve got a pair. I’m just in love with the tie ankle detail – it reminds me of ballet shoes and as a ballerina myself that makes me very happy. The heel height is small and perfectably wearable, which I put to the test on a long day travelling.

Midi Skirts

23A526EE-0926-4387-A655-15388E499707

Midi skirts are all the rage this season and with so many different variations of this style, you’re bound to find one design that you love. For me, midi skirts were always a bit scary; I thought they’d make me look incredibly small but I couldn’t have been more wrong! Midi skirts and midi dresses give my shape such a nice silhouette and actually elongate my legs and waist.

The Iconic Red Lip

Red Lipstick

Red lipstick can sometimes be scary to wear out on a daily basis as it feels very flamboyant and dressy but I’m a strong believer that it can be worn in a casual way. Red lipstick will always look pretty and classy and as we begin to transition into autumn, where darker lips are all the rage, a red lipstick is a good thing to include in your daily makeup routine.

Chanel Inspo

For me, my favourite red lipstick is Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in shade 13. It has a blue undertone which suits my complexion, compared to lots of other red lipsticks which have a more orange tone. It also goes on incredibly smoothly and stays put all day. I love it!

This post is not sponsored by Bourjois I honestly just love this shade and I think you will too.

You can buy your own lipstick here.

Sorry this post seems a bit rushed, I’m going on holiday later this week and I’ve been very busy so this had to be written very quickly. My longer, more extensive posts will be back to normal tomorrow!
