How to hold a healthy grudge. I hold a grudge quicker then most. Second chances aren’t for me. If I feel like you’ve done me wrong. Then you have and there is no coming back for it. I see holding a grudge as more self preservation. I don’t have the time or will power to smile and wave, pretend like everything is ok, when it’s not. Why waste your time and mine. Undertanding what kind if life you want to lead is the most important thing. Do you want to allow yourself to be exposed to situations that make you uncomfortable or sad, no. Then don’t allow it to happen. A healthy grudge is just self preservation. Undertand that you are moving forward but don’t let the grudge fester. Don’t over think it. Don’t bring it up to fuel your fire of hatered. See how you felt in the moment and how you came to hold a grudge and LET IT GO. But don’t allow it to happen again. More forward, not backwards. Accept it and put it to rest. You have one life and you shouldn’t just live it you should lead it. You are in control.

Photos taken during a power outage. Lighting is my Iphone light using the mirror in my bedroom and flowers Hayden bought me for Valentines Day.
When a friend decides to take the plunge and start blogging, i think it’s only right to celebrate. One such friend is Blogger Luce, we used to go to school together and I can’t wait to see her blog expand and develop.
Our celebration took us to Camden Bar and Kitchen in Ashley Cross. They also hold an open mic night which is very popular, I’ve been to watch once of twice on a Monday. But we decided that brunch was the best option seeing as we are ‘grown ups’.
We headed for a window table ( natural light for all the photo taking) and a lovely waitress greeted us as soon as out bottoms hit the seats. I knew what I wanted pretty quickly (going out the night before will do that to you) Lucy nano seconds behind.
I went for Eggs florentine Lucy for Benedict, washed down with a coffee and a glass of orange for me.
I always thought I was more of an eggs Benedict girl, but the eggs florentine was so delicious, the lightly salty spinach with the creamy egg balanced out against the hollandaise.
After devouring our food we chatted about life, Lucy’s new camera, our futures….
We paid, chatted to the lovely waitress and headed out into the glorious sunshine to put Lucy’s new camera to use with outfit photos.
All the outfit photos were in my last post here.
There are two Camdens in the Poole area one in Ashley Cross and the other in Westbourne, If you’re not in the mood for brunch head over for a pulled pork wrap or a steak wrap ( they are so delicious) or head there for a night out and grab yourself a tea pot cocktail.
Thank you for reading,
Apparently having my photo taken makes me lose my mind. Below are the photos that my group too of me for photography class. We were meant to be trying out lightning for a portfolio portrait.
I’m sure that one of these photos looks like I’m about to say ‘have you had an accident at work?’. I’m getting quite busy with classes so there will most likely be less content then before.

thanks for reading!
I’ve always wanted to take photography classes and since my course allows that I’ve fallen in love with photography. I try and think about what I’ve learnt in class and recreate that on this blog (my old site was full of bad photos)
On this rare occasion I found myself on the other side of the lens, in-front of the class ( it’s quite intimidating having 15/20 people looking at you)
Working out some interesting lighting techniques was so interesting. I think the shots of me are hilarious because I never look this nervous having my photo taken.
What I really liked about the photos is the focus on my jacket, all the details are highlighted by shadow and light. The green being off set against my hair and matching my eyes.
I want to create photos like these more often for my blog. Don’t they look so much more interesting!?
Hope you enjoyed reading,
