Famous Beige Raincoat

This is a post dedicated to the wonderful summertime weather of England and more specifically of the north. For the past few weeks now I've been planning to shoot some lovely, rather summer focused outfits to get us all in the mood for some much needed sunshine. Each time I've set out to snap some photos the weather just hasn't been on my side and I've been faced with grey skies and down pours of rain which Manchester in particular is so famous for. Not one to be deterred too easily and refusing to let the dubious so called "summer weather" rain on my parade (quite literally) I decided I would shoot a look made for those drizzly summer days when your heart wants to embrace the summer season but the your head is telling you to be more practical. After shooting this look, true to form the unpredictable weather did a complete turn around on me once more and we've since been faced with wonderful sunshine and warm temperatures. I can't win and although I don't want to complain about glorious weather, I also can't help but ask "can't a girl just catch a break please?".

Sweet Talkin' Girls- Podcast Launch

The time has finally come to share some rather exciting news- Me and my amazing friend Alice Catherine have started our very own little podcast "On The Outskirts"! Truth be told we've actually been toying with the idea of joining forces for quite some time now and after many a discussion on the subject we finally decided to kick ourselves into gear and make it happen. As with any new venture or project there's always that dreaded feeling of the unknown and I'd be lying if I said the prospect of starting a podcast didn't at times fill me with beginners fear. I'm a real stickler for concentrating on the negatives when it comes to trying out something new and before we'd even began creating "On The Outskirts" I was already over worrying about hypothetical if's and but's. I feel so incredibly lucky to have had Alice by my side to encourage me along and give me the push I needed to enter the unknown. Of course I still feel a little nervy putting our podcast out there into the world but I'm only human and now the first episode is up and running, I definitely feel a sense of pride that we actually made it happen.
