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

i recently read an insta post which re-shaped the way i looked at 'sad last times' with the focus instead on the subsequent, wonderful '1st times'.  i've just hit full effect menopause so i decided to apply that filter to my current menopause experience.  read on for the 1st in 'my menopause journey' series and my quest to de-old menopause x

A chance encounter with an orange bikini and a (nearly) ex boyfriend made me realise I've had a very specific personal style for well over 20 years.  Read on for a style-led trip down memory lane and a summary of the key wardrobe pieces which have been my personal style heroes since I was 18.

these images share summery, vintage tones which take me back to my childhood.  colours are equally muted and vibrant - reminding me of the lollies we ate, the adults we wanted to be, and the big fake plastic jewels we used for dress-ups.  i hope this sparks a lovely trip down memory lane for you too x
