I have a Fiance, called Jay, who is a chef & after being together nearly 6 years he popped the question back in March this year. I guess after giving him a baby he knew that this was probably kinda serious & he was stuck with me, didn't really have a choice, poor sod. If you follow me on Instagram you will probably know about my love for- monochrome, blush pink, flowers, interior design & fizz. Photography is such a passion of mine (I think I love it even more than I love Jay to be honest.)
For a while now I have been a brand rep for several small businesses on Instagram which I adore doing & I always bang on about how important it is to "support small", all these businesses have a mama behind them working alone or with their partner, trying to support their family & I think it's not only inspiring but courageous, I love to support them where I can. Along with Brand Repping I also offer product photography for brands & businesses that want it, big or small, which is something that I would love to make a career out of full time but for now I do it alongside my job where I work part time in a hotel as a duty manager 3 days a week. It's not my dream job, far from it to be honest but it works for us. I know the job inside out & they are flexible with my hours & with Seb. Luckily up until now we haven't had to look into childcare (Jay has Seb the two days he is off & my mama comes over on a Saturday to take care of him.) but as Jay has just got a new job this is something that is now top of the list to sort! I also enjoy working generally, personally I couldn't not have a job, It's good to earn money but I also think it's a good way just to get out & be you for a few hours, I think it's important for Seb too. Having one on one time with his dad, then also having that bonding time with his Nana.
If the bathroom needs cleaning for example, I won't be sitting on my arse watching tv, it's the same with other jobs too, I just can't relax until they're done, I'm not actually OCD but I do have tendencies. I am incredibly honest, which I guess some people don't like. I can come across quite blunt & I'm also quite sarcastic so people tend to take my humour the wrong way but I never mean to offend anyone & always want people to be honest with me, if you have a problem, just tell me & we can sort it, I can't be bothered to fanny around- I'm a big girl. I'm very down to earth & it takes a lot to offend me.
I hope that you enjoy reading my posts. I want to keep them positive but I also want to discuss real life which isn't always perfect. I think that sometimes blogs & Instagram can come across as these perfect little squares & these preened to perfection shots but that's not real. You never really know what's going on behind the camera/computer & I want to break through that & be as honest & as up front as I can be.
