Birthday OOTD

I haven't posted many outfit of the days lately, it's been so cold that I haven't been dressing what I consider to be 'well enough' to photograph, instead I've been dressing for warmth! However on my birthday I got all girlied up.

Dress - Asda
Denim Jacket - New Look (customised by me)
Boots - Demonia
Tights - Evans, ripped up by me
Necklace - KatzeShop

That dress was a super bargain! It was £8! I couldn't resist. I loved the mint colours with the purple and pink, girly, but not so girly that I can't rock it up and make it more me. Cue the ripped up tights, my boots and my denim jacket. I felt really cute. The dress is a fair bit shorter than I would usually wear, but lately I have been trying to push myself out of my comfort zones and I felt really good in this. Success!

Much love,

KITTIES!

Sometimes I am super lucky and I get to take photos of adorable furbabies. My Auntie and Uncle were recently given a beautiful ragdoll kitten by his Mum who breeds them, called Khali (short for Princess Khaleesi) so I just had to take some photos of her for them, and of their handsome moustache cat Reggie too!


Khali! Isn't she lovely? She's 3 and a half months old.

*smush*

Those blue eyes and that pink nose!

Reggie

This photo kind of sums Reggie up.

Isn't he so handsome? I love his moustache.

Sometimes she looks so much like Grumpy Cat!

*melts*

And a final one of the super handsome moustache tuxedo cat Reggie.

Aren't they both so gorgeous? Such caring and affectionate furbabies. Squish!

Much love,

Dreaming of Spring

The sun was shining, for a brief moment, and now I can't get the idea out of my head that Spring will be here soon and I can wear summery clothes!


How cute is this skirt? I love the midi length, and think it would be perfect for spring. Cool enough for the warmer temperature, but also covered enough that you don't have to worry about the cold.

Forever21 Basic Halter Top £6

Forever21 have some great basics that are really cheap. I love the cut of the neckline on this top.


Available in red, black, green and khaki, this is adorable! This is the sort of dress you could wear to work and dress up easily too.


This is also available in a really bright pink that is all kinds of amazing. I love a skater dress, they make me want to twirl!

What are you drooling over this spring?

Much love,
Kitty xxxx

Engagement Haul!

Stu and I were ridiculously spoilt with engagement presents! There aren't enough words for how thankful we are for them gifts, and it means so much that people care for us like that! I wanted to share a few of our presents as a sort of mini homeware haul.


Some family friends got us this amazing vase! It's really solid, more of a slate colour than this photo shows. We have been in dire need of a new vase as we only had one, and this is a stunner.


We got given several bottles of sparkly and wine, I don't drink so Stu will enjoy those, but I plan on enjoying this chocolate bottle of wine from friends of my parents.


My Uncle's Mum got us this amaaaaazing prism photo frame! It is so cool and unusual. I love it!



My brother and his girlfriend got us like, the most kick ass gift ever. NERF GUNS!! I got a cross bow so I can totally pretend to be Buffy, and Stu got a semi-automatic gun. We got the boys nerf guns for Christmas so this now means all out war. YAY!!

And the final present you get a photo of from our friend Jamie of Silent Studios.....


Inflatable penis fighting kit! Which Stu and his groomsman Mat immediately donned for some sword fighting. So much laughter ensued!

So many of our family and friends were unbelievably generous and gifted us Ikea vouchers and money towards our wardrobe saving funds. Thanks to that generosity we will be ordering our wardrobes ASAP! We have been in dire need of them, and I cannot explain how appreciative we both are.

Much love,

Amazing Engagement

 On February 14th my parents threw an amazing engagement party for me and Stu at our local. It was the best night I could have asked for! Such a fantastic night, surrounded by our friends and family, and with music provided by The Idles. The Idles were totally kick ass, great banter and a mix of tunes, so we plan to book them for our wedding too!


I got my nails done thanks to my Mum. Figured people might ask to see my ring so they should be all pretty just in case!


My parents got us these totally incredible lights made! I'd been looking at carnival style lights for the wedding and was gutted at how expensive they are, my Mum found a lovely lady who made these for her for us. We decorated at the engagement party with them, and plan to use them at the wedding.


My Dad very kindly took lots of photos for us of all the details and our lovely guests!


<3




We decorated the tables with little mirrors, and 3 types of confetti, purple and silver hearts, and iridescent circles, plus balloons weight with iridescent hearts.


Me and Roswell Ivory, who I asked to be my bridesmaid, who said yes, yay!!


Roswell lost a french fry crisp down her dress and my Dad caught the moment I tried to help her find it.... she did find it eventually. 7 hours later when she took off her dress and proudly ran through the house with it!


Roswell, me and Fal, two of my 3 bridesmaids! Besties <3


Our utterly amazing tattoo and True Romance themed cake. I haven't actually eaten any of it yet, but it was beautiful!


The only dampener to our otherwise perfect night was that someone stole the edible skull off the top of the cake before we even cut it. What is wrong with people?!!



I love this photo of me and Roswell so much!

It was such an amazing night, thank you so much to everyone who came, especially all those people who travelled for us! People came from Cambridge, South Wales, Mansfield, booked hotels, just wow. I am so lucky to be part of an awesome family, and even luckier to be becoming part of another one too!

Much love,

Birthday Awesomeness!


I turned 27 on 12th February and had the most wonderful day! Both Stu and I had the day off, so we had a lazy day watching The Shield in bed (Ashen and the cats joined us), then in the evening went for a meal with my family. Perfect! My family really spoilt me with some incredible gifts, so I wanted to share some of them.

Samya @ New Look top from my Mum

Monki Annie X Bag

The scissor and banana print totally make feminist me super happy!


My Mum got me a whole bunch of Rosa Pietsch's jewellery from Katze Shop. LOVE!


A lot of Rosa's pieces are one offs so are no longer available in her store, but she has all sorts of amazing jewellery and similar necklaces available.


I picked these all out with my Mum, Rosa noticed that I'm a fan of black and silver, always!


As a huge fan of The Serpent's Club, I was so excited when I opened a present from my parents and saw that familiar packaging, and found Siren inside!


It is so gorgeous, and so well made. Amethyst is my birthstone, so this is perfect for me.


My Mum ordered during a flash sale The Serpent's Club had, and got a cluster ring as part of the order too!

Brass Bison Jewellery Holder

Stu and I are currently in the process of reorganising our bedroom, and I desperately needed more room to store my jewellery, my Nanna got this incredible skull holder for me!


Stu's Mum and Step-Dad got me this beautiful photo frame, I love the shell detailing so much, it's gorgeous. I'm currently deciding what photo to get printed in it.


Look how pretty that border is!

Sugar & Vice Antler Necklace

My brother and his girlfriend got me some Sugar & Vice, always an ace idea with me! Sugar & Vice have always put sweeties in their orders and now have their own branded rock, so cute!

Both sets of my Grandparents, and my Auntie and Uncle gave me money, it'll be going towards a new tattoo and some bits for the house.

And finally, the gorgeous butterfly necklace Stu got me to match my engagement ring



Such a wonderful birthday, thank you to everyone who wished me a great day!

Much love,
Kitty xxxxx

ps. How amazeballs is the cake my Mum baked me?!

Alivya and Jessica Drue Photoshoot

There are some models that I could just shoot with over and over again, so happily, one of those is Alivya V Free, another is Jessica Drue. I first shot with both of these amazing models when I was 18 or 19, and we've been shooting ever since. Both are so creative and inspiring, so when I got the chance to shoot with both of them on the same day I snapped at the chance and we made magic!

Jessica Drue wearing flower crown from Creations by Liv Free, which is Alivya's accessories line. Both models did their own hair and makeup.

Jessica Drue wearing Libidex (I found a new spot to shoot in and I love this background!)


Alivya V Free wearing Kaori's Latex Dreams. I've been a huge fan of Kaori's for a long time, so when I was offered the chance to shoot her designs I was so happy! One of mine and Liv's most popular photos together features this military hat, from years and years ago, neither of us was the biggest fan of that shot, in fact, I only edited it because my Mum liked it!

Jessica Drue

Alivya V Free using Holga Lens with special turret


Jessica Drue with the same lens. Isn't it so cool! You have so many different options with it, and I really love it.

We shot soooo much. I actually filled both of my memory cards we shot so much, but a lot is being submitted to publication so I can't share it online, but I will when I can!




If you ever get the chance to shoot with either Jess or Alivya, imagine me shouting 'Yes! Yes! Go for it!' at you, because you really, really should.

Much love,
Kitty xxxx
