Flaws n' All

This time of year always starts to get rough for me, the days are shorter and the lack of light start to impact my mental health. But each year I get better at coping and as part of that process try to keep doing positive things with the more frequent self reflection sessions that happen in this head space. I mean it can definitely be a positive and negative thing. This post is one of them, a little deeper than I've ever done before (because I've never really talked about mental health, but I've been meaning to). And also a bit of a 'fuck you' to those parts of me in the back of my mind telling me I'm not enough, you hear me? I am.
So I thought I'd write a post about insecurities, because we all have them, and I think it's better to look at them and say "you know what. you're ok" to try and get along with them and that;s what I'm trying to achieve here. Firstly by recognising what arts of me I don't like so much and then by trying to accept them and move on. So I'm going to list some, talk about why I have an issue and then try and put it to rest; or at least start to. I've used photos already from posts to really show myself (from looking through the photos) how much I avoid my insecurities to work on that in the future.
Though this post is definitely not a complete list of my insecurities, there are a lot I think I'm not willing to admit very openly at the moment. It's more the ones that I see physically in pictures of myself, and after almost 2 and a half years of frequently taking and editing pictures of myself I've gotten more accustomed to what you could call "flaws" and now want to make peace with them I guess. I hope this post has the positive message intended.

Double Denim

Hey hey pretty people! It's finally been sunny, and I am so happy. Though today was grey I have hope that it won't be like that for the next 3 weeks. I mean it could well be but one sunny day is always means for a bit of hope for better weather.
Oh and it was such a beautiful one, the perfect crisp wintery day, with beautiful light all day from the low fun, that turquoise cloudless sky and a slightly biting cold. I went out and cycled around bit to find this spot by the sea to take photos and it was a perfectly chilled out. Pun not intended there. Lets just hope there are more days like this, it's the type of winter I love.

Monochrome it

Hey hey hey, how's it going? Another night shoot, this time in a familiar location. I've said before how I light to go back to the same location in different seasons as they tend to look completely different and I guess the same can be said for day and night.
These photos didn't turn out at all like I expected but then again I don't know what I expected. They turned out better anyhow, I initially wasn't sure I like this look but I like it in the photos so it's a strange one really.
The past day has been clear, finally after about 3 weeks I have seen clear skies! It was beautiful, lots of grey weather really does make you appreciate how beautiful the sky is without clouds covering it. I mean clouds are pretty, except when they're just a white or grey mass covering the sky, that isn't so nice. I mean I'm hoping it stays like this for a little while but as I live in Wales there really is no guarantee.

Everything looks different in the dark

Hey lovelies, this was supposed to be an outfit post but well... it. Won't. Stop. Raining. I mean I know I live in Wales but it's been about 3 weeks now and I haven't seen the sun for more than an hour. I planned to take my next outfit photos in the dark and well that didn't happen because of all this wind and rain! Hopefully I'll be able to get out in the next few days, maybe it'll calm down.
I have been waiting for a chance to use these photos though for a while. As part of my photography course for my final project I'm doing a night photography project and these are some of the test shots/experimentations I've done for it. Some have just been out and about in the dark whereas others were from a night photography ramble as part of Diffusion Festival. I mean I still need to take more pictures for my final project but wanted to share these too because I think they're pretty cool, they were all taken in the pitch black (well with the exception of street lights and such) and some of the colours are pretty cool.

Gemstone Green Freshlook Colourblends Lenses Review

Hi snazzy cats (ok trying a new greeting, not sure that one works) how's it going? Back with a slightly different post one I haven't done in over two years, coloured contact lenses! I haven't actually used coloured contacts since then so this was an experience, but I am going to wear them out this time, last time trying to get them in was too traumatic for me to try again for a while. I like to think I've improved in many ways since my last post (I mean you can see my old lense review here), but you can make your own decisions there.
So yeah lense review, some green lenses, I mean I always wanted green eyes as a kid, from Coloured Lenses UK who were kind enough to send them to me for review. The lenses are from their Freshlook Colourblends collection which has some pretty cool colours in.
