Mario Sorenti & Naomi Campbell







I went back to my old sixth form yesterday to pick up some of my AS and A2 level work... it was so weird looking at work I had done only last year and comparing it to what I'm doing on my foundation course at the moment! I like to think I have improved quite a bit, haha! Anyway, while i was looking through my fashion photography sketchbook I saw these pictures of Naomi Campbell by photographer Mario Sorenti that I had used as research and remembered how much I loved them. They were for the August 2008 edition of V magazine
& i have just found this behind the scene's video from the shoot, it's only short so you have to watch it just to see the moving images at the end (look how amazing her white wedges are!!!)


Hope you love it as much as I do!

NYC!



Finally, after wanting to go to New York for such a long time I'm going in December & I could not be more excited! I am going for a week and will be spending Christmas there!
While i was google'ing? a picture for this blog post i came across a street photographer called Markus Hartel, a German photographer now living in NY who documents everyday people while roaming the streets. I did a project with this theme at AS level but my pictures were definitely not as amazing as this guys! I ♥♥♥ this style of photography because it is an unaltered reflection of people and places & of things you see all the time but don't notice :) Check out his other photographs and projects on his website... www.markushartel.com

Missguided Splash!

I have been using Missguided Splash nail polish for a while and i haven't had chance to blog
about it until now (sorry for the bad nail painting skills!) I have got all 6 of the colours but the MissCellaneous nude polish is my favorite!  It goes with everything, dries reaaaaally quickly and doesn't chip... which makes it the perfect polish!

After watching the X Factor last weekend I loved Cher's leggings and was straight on the Internet to try and find out where they were from! I tweeted to see if anyone knew... and Arrogant Cat the company they are from tweeted me back! They said they are available for pre-sale from their sister brand SO-M-I for £52  ! I LOVEEEEE THEM!
