Still unanswered questions at the age of 38 😝

I am 38 this year 😅 and I have so many unanswered questions!!!! I still haven’t found out who let the Dogs Out…how to get to Sesame Street… why Dora doesn’t just use Google Maps…Why do all flavors of fruit loops taste exactly the same, ……why eggs are packaged in a flimsy paper carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that’s tough as nails, yet light bulbs too are in a flimsy carton… Ever buy scissors? You need scissors to cut into the packaging of scissors… i still don’t understand why there is Braille on drive up ATM’s or why “abbreviated” is such a long word; or why is there a D in ‘fridge’ but not in refrigerator… why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons… why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections… and, why do you have to “put your two cents in” but it’s only a “penny for your thoughts” where’s that extra penny going to… why do The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star have the same tune… why did you just try to sing those two previous songs…and do you really think I am this witty?? … I actually got this from a friend, who stole it from a friend, who stole it from her brother’s girlfriend’s, uncle’s cousin’s,..Now it is your turn to take it from me…Copy and Paste, change the age, and enjoy your day!!

Yesterday after years of YouTubing I finally shared my channel with all my friends and family. This was what I shared on Facebook. 

Hello friends and family! A new year brings a new me and I felt that it was time to share one of my biggest secrets with you. This is something that I have kept to myself and been extremly sectrative about. For years I have shared my opinions on Facebook and then started blogging. I love connecting with people on a mind level and sharing my thoughts and motivation. I love gaining motivation and inspiration. 

Those of you that know me well would know that I am crazy outspoken and very passionate about my family, cookiing, making jewellery and photography. In 2007 I created a YouTube Channel the main reason was to document my weight loss and natural hair journey by putting myself out there I had to achieve my goals. I was getting a lot of positive feedback and high views then YouTube approached me to become a YouTube partner (Back then this was difficult to join, today easy lol). 

The channel helped me to get to know myself better and gain confidence that I really needed at the time as I was going through some things which knocked my confidence a little. Natural hair was something that many were embracing and I wanted to stop relaxing my hair and grow it natural, I found Youtube to be my go to place for advice, tutorials and to aid my weight loss. I stopped making videos after three years and whilst on maternity leave I reignited my passion I started making videos, jewellery and photography again, I am loving every minute. I have had some lovely comments, been given products to test and watched my subscriber count pick back up.

Well that is enough of the back story. I just wanted to now share my channel and videos with you all I suppose I thought many would be judgemental but if I have learnt anything it is that life is about doing what makes you happy. It is about doing you, being yourself. I wish you all a fantastic 2017 and I hope you find something that makes you happy because the MATRIX can hinder us from reaching for the stars. My boys have now become a part of my channel and we have so much fun making videos in our spare time and with this being a new year it is time to share our journey with the people that we love. The channel is now about alot more than hair and weight loss but about family, places to visit, motivation, vlogs, shopping hauls challenges and more….Please take the time to SUBSCRIBE to my channel (be nice lol), like my Facebook page and check out my website. Thank you so much if you made it this far lol XxXxX

I love these pictures taken at a wedding in Beckenham. I try to capture every moment I find that it adds to the story of the day and brings back such lovely memories. Oh and children sure do add to the memories of the day.

My coverage is with a photo journalistic approach taking photographs during the wedding using an alternative approach where images are captured spontaneously to emphasize moments and emotion.

Much like photojournalists for the media, wedding photojournalists present the story of the day through your photographs. I combine this style with traditional formal photography.

This image shows just how amazing shooting in this way can be. This is one of my favorite natural shots of 2014.

Back from a lovely break in Dorset

I recently visited Dorset which was absolutely fabulous.

I have a few images but I did not take my camera with me on mostly of the trips,silly I know I am kicking myself as there was some amazing sites.

However I have a few camera phone images.

The images were taken at Lulworth Cove and Durdle door .

Lulworth Cove was stunning and we stopped and did a little rock pooling and then walked up to Durdle door which was a long but lovely walk up and down hills. The UK has some hidden gems.
