Beginners Photography Course, London Institute of Photography

Last week I attended the Beginners Photography Course at the London Institute of Photography*. I’ve been blogging for 5 years and my photography has vastly improved in that time (I stopped using my phone camera for a start!) but I still wasn’t happy with the way my photos looked. I used my DSLR on the manual setting, but I basically mashed buttons until the settings were exactly how I wanted them to be and god forbid if anyone touched them! I knew that I needed to discover exactly what my camera was capable of and how I could make it work for me rather than pointing, clicking and hoping for the best.

Why I don’t want a promotion

Today I told my boss that I didn’t want to be put forward for a promotion – one I was pretty much guaranteed to get. It was a strange moment and not one in which I ever envisioned myself. You leave school or uni and get a job and the stepping stones are laid out in front of you: you work hard, your boss recognises that, you get a promotion and the process starts again.

So what happens when you don’t follow that path?

Flamingo Candles The Melt Crowd Subscription Box

If you saw my review of the Bomb Cosmetics ‘Little Hotties’ wax melts you will know about my obsession with home scents. I am a total convert to wax melts and I had seen the Flamingo Candle ‘The Melt Crowd’ subscription box on a few blogs and was immediately smitten with the idea. I took one look at the scent list and was practically throwing money at the screen!
