Summer : The Gallery

Today the summer officially ended when the kids went back to school. I have to say that I'm gutted. I've had a lovely summer. We've had some amazing adventures that have been interspersed with late nights and lazy days camped out in our awesome SoulPad den in the garden.
We've giggled, we've laughed and we've sung along to Sia, Iggy Azalea and Beyoncé till we've been banned from paying music with our men folk in the car.
We've cooked, we've camped, we've paddled in the sea, we've seen Johnny (fucking) Marr and we've spent late nights and damp tent moments with real friends. Real, honest friends.

The summer has been so epic that I couldn't cut it down to a single pic. There's simply been too many memories that needed acknowledging.

I don't think I've ever been so sad that the summer is over. This year I am truly grateful that I am able to work from home whilst enjoying time with my family. 

Camp Bestival, was without a doubt a major highlight for the girls and for me. Biba had an amazing opportunity as an official teen blogger and totally rose to the occasion, snapping some truly awesome pics of Johnny Marr for me (I may have told her that I wasn't taking her home if she didn't). 

At the weekend our summer den is closing for the season as we'll be packing our beloved bell tent up for the winter..... Or maybe we can squeeze just one more weekend of fun in, what do you think?

Tropic Lash Extension Kit Review

I have to admit that I'm quite set in my ways when it comes to skincare and cosmetic use. I always go back to the same products that I've used for years and never feeling the need to deviate even slightly from the brands that I've grown to love.

Then I was introduced to Tropic Skincare through a friend. I liked the look of the Tropic Lash Extension Kit and thought I'd give it a try.


Made from nourishing ingredients including Jojoba and Candelilla the kit creates an instant, natural looking, false lash, effect in three quick and easy steps.

Tropic Lash Kit

You begin with a coat of the Fixing Gel, then a coat of the Extension Fibres, followed by a final coat of Fixing Gel.

I fell instantly in love with this product. It's so easy to use, giving you a salon extension look in as long as it takes to apply your regular mascara.

What do you think of the results (as modelled by Biba)?

I've also been testing some of the Tropic Skincare Range. I will be posting a review of those soon.

World Photo Day : The Gallery


Whitby Abbey


Perched on a cliff top overlooking Whitby, these gothic ruins are breathtakingly eerie and wonderful in equal measures. I've always loved taking photos here.

Whitby Abbey in August

We spent a couple of hours, snapping the amazing ruins until out batteries died before heading down to the town for seaside fish and chips. We had a wonderful day full of fresh air and a stiff sea breeze.

On the way home we stopped off in the stunning Robin Hood Bay, just in time to join the nightly village ghost walk.

A perfect day.
