Non Food Friday No.1

Most of the time this blog is all food food food, so I thought I might be nice to introduce a little fun on Fridays and share something that’s not all about food photography. So today we begin with the first of a new little feature called ‘Non Food Friday’ and I thought I’d start by sharing a couple of my purchases this week. The first is something that I’ve seen popping up in shops recently and I have totally fallen in love with. As a person who loves to write lists the idea of a week planner/mouse pad/note pad with tear off weekly pages PLUS cute design…was pure genius and of course I had to have one!

This really cute design is by Knock Knock  (www.KnockKnockStuff.com) which I found in John Lewis, Paperchase also have some great designs too.

I’ve also treated myself to a couple of very cute necklaces that I found in Accesorize, which is currently having a 50% sale, the camera necklace was reduced to £3 and the specs were £2.50, love them both equally.

Rustic Food Shoot

Last week I was challenged to shoot a meal for Bonfire night, a Sunday roast with a difference and a Duck which wasn’t served with oranges.  For the Bonfire Night shot I used a warm gel over my light to suggest the warmth of night time bonfire. The roast with a difference I chose a Zesty Roast Chicken recipe from Tesco Real Food website and for the duck… Delia’s Crispy Duck with Morello Cherry Sauce.

Vinyl Additiction

Last month I treated myself to a record player, I’ve wanted one for some time now and I finally found ‘the one’. Since then I taken great pleasure in browsing record shop and rummaging in charity shops for LPs.

However yesterday I took it to the next level… 2 hours spent searching in ten charity shops, 8 records bought… and only £8.50 spent!

 

FujiFilm Instax 210

Apologies for being a little quiet recently, it’s been my birthday and I do take my birthday celebrations seriously.

One of the best things about birthdays, apart from celebrating with groups friends, is all the lovely gifts!! My favourite gift this year (from my lovely boyfriend) Fujifilm Instax 210… a great feature of this camera is a little clip on lens for self portraits which not only allows you to shoot really close up but has a little mirror so you make sure you’re in frame! LOVE IT!
