It's just a bunch of Hocus Pocus




 
 
I predict that tonight will be filled with excessive fake blood use, scaring young children and many a tequila (we're burnt to dust at) sunrise.
Happy Scaring Spooky people!

out of the woods

These photos were part of a wonderful shoot I took part in earlier this year, but felt they were very apt to be posted now. That and the fact I have been ridiculously busy this week to take anything new, with magical news that I can hopefully share at some point next year :)

I really can't believe we are in October (!) already. The start of 2015 could literally have been last week and this year has been one I'd like to stick around for a little longer. 
Anyway, whilst the year may be in it's final chapter, Halloween still beckons which - being perhaps my favourite dress up opportunity - I shall of course have a post in store for.

What are you planning to dress up as?

We don't need each other now

A brief interrim post, but on something I feel is important.
To my friends and family, I am constantly insisting that they believe in themselves whole heartedly. That self confidence and endless positivity is by far the best mindset to take and to ignore those who tear down those ambitions.
How easy it is to serve up advice without even considering taking a helping for yourself.

Although confidence in myself and my own abilities has grown, especially in recent years, it's still something which is a pressing issue, despite it being one that is overshadowed by every other menial aspect of life. Like an impenetrable weed it started off insignificant and small, but when ignored can work it's way into every inch of your existence, plaguing each decision with a mask of self doubt. 

Even walking into Costa and rehearsing my three word order so I'm not holding up the woman behind who is obviously far more in need of her coffee than I.
Using sorry as a filler for almost every awkward encounter when 90% of the time, it is 100% not my fault.

I am here to therefore say it is time we remember who we are and no matter our hair colour, social status, waist size or tea preference, our existences are valid. Our opinions are valid. Our 3am thoughts about the formation of the universe is valid.

It's taken me this long to acknowledge the popular people at school were always just people. It doesn't matter what clique you belong to or american sitcom you prefer, there is ultimately no reason why you should doubt yourself.
