There's always one thing which stands out on a shoot and that we still talk about months later.  Our Spring shoot with the incredibly beautiful, vivacious and very French Gabrielle was memorable for lots of reasons but the one thing which Tricia and I STILL talk about is her skin.  It was seriously like VELVET.  You know when you sit on a velvet couch and you just have to pat it.  It was like that.  (We didn't sit on Gabs but we did pat her arm).

There was not one imperfection.  It was smooth, perfectly tanned and there's no other word for it, literally like velvet.  We almost did away with our make-up artist and photoshopping was barely necessary. 

We're both in our late 30's and spent a lot of our childhood ... teen years ... 20's ... early 30's... now... on the beach.  We're doing ok for our age, and Gabs had pretty exceptional skin to start with, but holy moly, this post is dedicated to all the 20-somethings living it large in the sun.  Don't forget to spf! Or as my husband says - be sun genius xx

A lovely day and a cracking 80's soundtrack made me fall in love with menopause and the idea that through things we love (like great 80's music) we can channel the spirit of our free, unadulterated, world-is-our-oyster childhood selves.

Reference the table's (food + actions) for a super quick guide.  If you want more, there's additional information included below the tables.  This info is mostly about the things I found most interesting and thought you may like a little bit more of an explanation for.
