Chic & Ethic Shoot

Here's a sneaky cheeky preview shot from the Chic & Ethic photoshoot, accessories and outfit made by me from recycled stuff! They've done a great job of the photographs! This dress was dyed at home using natural vegetable dyes.

So I went to a wedding my lovely friend Caroline got married and as I made a promise to myself nearly 3years ago now, that I would no longer shop on the high street I really needed something to well I had got a fantastic green satin and silk a-line dress from a swapshop that was actually slightly too big and a not very flattering A-line, so I decided to turn it into a parachute dress and then made myself a fascinator to match!!

FC United Play-scheme We had an amazing time!

Another fantastic week with FC United and the Play scheme. I really enjoy these sessions, the kids are fantastic, responsive and massively creative and appreciative. I feel sorry for poor Phil though, apparently the day I wasn't there they were chanting for me! Katie Hanratty was amazing too, I honestly don't think it would've been as successful without her amazingness!! click here to see her blog!
