Meat Free Monday – Blue Spirulina Bowl

This Meat Free Monday I’m embracing Blue Monday by getting involved in the new blue food craze using the powerful antioxidant Blue Spirulina (powder). It’s benefits include protein and Vits A, K1, K2 and B12, iron and Manganese, which makes it perfect for creating my vegan (coconut yogurt substitute) mermaid breakfast bowl!

52 Weekends No. 16 – Feed the Birds

This winter weekend I thought it would be nice idea to give the birds a helping hand finding their food with the added bonus of attracting them to my little garden.

So quick and easy to make and takes no time at all. All you’ll need is; bird seed (think my bag cost me a pound at Wilko), block of fat, found pine cones, string and cookie cutters. And simply dunk the pine cones into the melt fat them into the seeds. After that you can mix the fat and seed together and fill cookie cutters with the mix.  Chill in the fridge to help it set.

Non Food Fairies… I mean Friday!

Happy NON FOOD FRIDAY! I had the delight of shooting this little cutie and her sisters recently. I was in my element gathering props and styling the little set to help bring them to life!

Designed by the talented Lisa Olsen from TigerLily Makes and they will be available as sewing kits by the end of the months, so head over to her site to get the details about how to get your own kit.

Meat Free Monday

I’ve decided to re-introduce Meat Free Mondays as a regular post and what better time to do that than Veganuary! So if you need a little inspiration to get you through the month then look no further. Here my breakfast smoothy bowl of soya and coconut yogurt alternative… they make such pretty pictures, taste pretty good too!

52 weekends No.15 – Making Plans and planners

With it being the first weekend of the new year, it seemed right to use my time making plans, setting goals (both work and play) and booking trips. Which has left me feeling very organised and relaxed as well as looking forward to an amazing year ahead. I also made a wall planner for January to help keep me organised and remind me of my goals and my to do list. It’s hand drawn and took no time at all. If you struggle with nice hand drawn fonts, do what I did and trace them directly of your computer 😉

52 Weekends No.14 – New Years Eve Party

52 Weekends No.14 – New Year’s Eve Party. Today I’ve been busy preparing for a little New Years Eve Party we’re hosting, nothing huge… just games and crisps with the family. I did want it to add a little sparkle to the occasion so I’ve been busy making a banner for the wall and sparklers for our drinks. It was a fun little project, perfect for this weeks 52 Weekends project. I’m looking forward to sharing more weekend inspiration in 2018. Happy New Year everyone xx

Best Food Photography 2017

As I look back at 2017 I feel so proud. My portfolio is ever growing and evolving and this year I have produced so much work that I am so proud of, it’s proving to be an impossible task of choosing just nine images to sum up a truly fabulous year for me!

There was the amazing experience and honour of having my work displayed in the Mall Galleries and being awards 3rd place in my category for the Pink Lady Food Photography Awards. I’ve been shooting all over the country and it’s has been an absolute delight working and meeting so many wonderful creative people; chefs, food stylists, photographers, art directors, designers, agencies, project managers, artists, crafters, publishers, editors. I’ve shot for three restaurant menus, Frankie & Benny’s, Chiquitos and a new London restaurant not yet opened (so still very hush hush) and had the delight of meeting and shooting The Tanner brothers in action. Wow… that really was quite a year!

I feel so fortunate to have a job that I truly love and would like to thank all those wonderful people who I have worked with this year and my family and friends that have supported me! Wishing you all a very happy 2018!

Best of Non Food Friday 2017

I have been working this week, just a little and with my favourite classic 1980s movies playing in the background. I’ve been planning the year ahead, setting objectives (both work and personal) and writing lots of lists and filling in my dairy for 2018… but I have also taken time to reflecting on the amazing year that I’ve had.

The highlight, of course the amazing experience and honour of having my work displayed in the Mall Galleries and being awarded 3rd place in my category for the Pink Lady Food Photography Awards. I shot for three restaurant menus, Frankie & Benny’s, Chiquitos and a new London restaurant not yet opened (so still very hush hush) and had the delight of meeting and shooting The Tanner brothers in action. I had the pleasure of working once again with the delightful publishers Search Press and added four new craft books to my portfolio and made some new friends along the way.  I was thrilled to be part of the exciting launch of the new,revolutionary, cross stitch magazine… XStitch with the awesome Mr XStitch. I’ve also had some rather exciting new fashion projects with Bobbi Parka and Milky Cereal, some impressive make over shoots for Avon and a fun charity calendar with Coppa Feel… And I launched the ’52 Weekend’ project!

Today, being Friday… I wanted to share the best of NON FOOD FRIDAY with you all and thank all of those wonderful people who have made my 2017 great!
