Makeup,  Photography

yesterday maddy and i did a bit of a spontaneous shoot.

i really wanted to get some beautiful head shots of her noodly (cute) face, and show off some pretty makeup looks. we both kind of adore flowers in head shots, so that was really the inspiration. the first lot of photos is that ‘au naturel’, a blossom within the blossoms type shot. not a lot of makeup, but polished and darn beautiful. the second is a bit more fun. it’s like the flowers painted her face a little. a bit of candy colours and beautiful pinks and purples. a rose amongst, well, the roses. i used one of my favourite stila lipsticks in that shot.

well enjoy these beautiful pics, and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

also, maddy is wearing this beautiful dolce and gabanna blouse that we found in a second hand store in paris. totally appropriate i think. have a beautiful day – smell the roses, or something else pleasing to the nostrils.

hello great people.
so finally, approximately 1 million years later, here are the photos from the shoot that chantal and i did with maddy. it was a lot of fun, and i think, a brilliant result. maddy just looks gorgeous, and channy did a great job of the hair and makeup. this time around i was the photographer/stylist. i quite like styling. you would expect so. there was no real direction for this shoot, but after chan did the hair and makeup i kind of decided the outfits. i guess you could say i was going for paris meets pin up 50’s meets 2012. i think it kind of worked. either way the photos are super. super cool. i do hope you like them, and if you like chan’s makeup you can find more of her stuff here.

So the photos are finally finished from the bridal test shoot that I showed you. They have come out quite gorgeous, and my little sister is growing in to a star. I tell you. Stunning. Here’s one of my favourite photos. I was the ‘stylist’ from the shoot, and had a lot of fun. Check out the rest of the photos on Khen’s photography page here.

Outfits,  Styling,  Summer


hi friends. been a while.

well today i was styling for a bridal test shoot. i was wearing my new maurie and eve top that i got on sale. and i like it. i like it a lot. much like this necklace that i totally sporadically made the other day. i saw some chain sitting on my bench, and a pair of pliers, and this is what happened. i think it’s super cool and chainy. worn with my old thrifted diy shorts. i’m starting to feel like i need to replace them. the alternate pair of high waisted denim shorts that i did buy, i must have been delusional to even really think they pass as pants. that’s pretty rich coming from me. the girl who likes to think she eludes to longer legs by wearing things as short as she can get them without becoming inappropriate or awkward. that in mind, i have actually worn these very shorts i am talking about. the key is to wear something long covering your behind… okay fine they’re still way too short. which is why i’ve decided to never wear them again. without tights that is.. hehe.

okay enough of my shorts. back to the shoot. so we went to the store wallcandy in highgate area where they sell wallpaper and other cute home/furniture goods. it turned out to be a lovely day. yet tiring. running around trying to find clips for the dress (which you can see on display) and tying up silly corseted dressed. and holding lights. and posing models. blah blah the usual. anyway the photographer was khen chen, and he really is lovely. he definitely made the day enjoyable. along with my beautiful friend chantal who did the makeup and hair. aaaand of course the gorgeous models. one of which was baby sister (who you can see with a half red lip above) and natalie who was the sweetest. looking forward to seeing what they all turn out like.

lotsa love.
