A 60’s Americana Styled Shoot: Inspired by Elvis & Priscilla Presley


Happy Friday Beauties! I have been dying to share this shoot with you ever since I saw the first polaroid sneak peeks on Dale Weeks’ Facebook a few months back. I was so excited when Dale asked us to feature it, first the photography and details are phenomenal and second the inspiration holds quite a special place in my heart. I absolutely adore Elvis! Growing up I would always listen to his albums and at school when everyone else was reading teen magazines, I was reading Elvis Presley Biographies. I was enthralled by his turbulent relationship with Priscilla, his charm and his beautiful face.

I sometimes wonder what it would have been like to be born in the 60’s, I think I would have fitted right in, I love the music, the fashion, everything just seemed classy. Who is your musical hero? What is your favourite era?

Is anybody else totally shocked that it’s the 1st of August today?! I mean, how did that happen?! We’re starting the 8th month of 2014! Sayyyy whaaaattt! I hope that this year is shaping up nicely for you! I just can’t believe how fast the weeks are flying by, but they say time flies when you’re having fun and this week was no exception! Here’s what we were loving in the final days of July…

 Tiger. As in the shop, I had never even heard of it until we were just strolling past it in Cheltenham on the weekend, I loved pretty much every single item in there but I managed to refrain myself from buying an abundance of fun colourful stuff and instead left with a handful of awesome napkins! I wish these cool geometric boxes were in store though, I’d have totally snapped them up too!

 Visiting Liz and Adam up in Cheltenham, their new house is absolutely gorgeous and I fell head over heels in love with the newest member of their household; Kate Moss, the beautiful little kitten! It was also ace to chill out, have drinks and sing maybe just a little bit too much..

 Adding beetroot into my morning juices! What could be better than food that’s naturally pink?!

 Prawn stir fry. I just cannot get enough of it, especially with a teaspoon of grated ginger thrown in!

♥ Jamie’s Italian. I’ve got to say the pasta was delicious!! It’s all made fresh that day and I ordered a squid ink dish covered in mussels, crayfish and squid! SO YUM!


Homemade Ice Cream Soda’s – They are so tasty!!!

Going for a beautiful walk around Symonds Yacht with Mr T at sunset then indulging in a yummy dinner at the Saracens Head Pub.

Braids in my hair! I have never been able to braid my hair and after spending one evening practising and checking out tutorials on Youtube I am now a dab hand.

Holding a Twilight marathon weekend – my secret guilty pleasure!

DIY days with Jess, we have been having a blast this week, creating new DIY’s and videos for you. We can’t wait to share them!!!
