Photos at sunset

I took these photo's this time last year as part of an assignment to create photography for an album cover. Mine was based around silhouettes and lot's of other things. One of my amazing best friends said she would ~pose~ for me, what a babe. I realised, as I re-discovered these while doing my portfolio the other week that I never really showed them on the blog, I actually love some of these photo's, the lighting was just perfect as it set on a sunny November evening.

Taking blog photos in winter low light

It's something every blogger hates. The fact you have just charged your camera, got dressed for outfit photos, prepare products to photograph. Then it rains, it gets dark quick or just life gets in the way of the fact when you get home it's too dark to take photos. 
Over the few years that I've blogged, I've found a few handy ways of cheating that pesky weather of stopping me getting photo's taken!

I made a post 2 years ago now (wow) of a handy little tool that I think every blogger would find incredibly handy, post link here. But when I sat and thought about it on one of those commuting mornings on the train, I realised there's quite a few ways round that I try to take photographs for this little blog, therefore here is this post!

Asos applique triangle bra

I'm actually a huge lover of lingerie and underwear, although it's never found itself on my blog before now. I thought I'd share my favourite set I recently picked up (well, I got it 2 months ago and forgot to blog, but never mind). I'm pretty fussy with bras usually, so when I find ones I genuinely like, it's a shocker. 


Applique vine bra here - £16 & £8


Sometimes it can feel a bit of a chore to have to wear a bra, but I've found the perfect 'lazy bra' in this Asos applique bra. I saw it online and fell in love so decided to order it. 
I had a promo code, so this set only came to £19! I personally think that's quite a bargain for a set that looks like it costs a lot more. I've been known to spent triple that before, ugh. 
I also love and have my eye on thisthis and this one!

I loved the 'triangle' bra trend, but never really thought my 'in the middle sized' boobs would suit it. 

Triangle bras are generally aimed at smaller chested girls because of the shape, the tend to just cover over. For anyone thinking about this bra or similar from Asos, I feel like I just about get away with wearing it, I wouldn't class myself as small chested but I'm no where near big chested either, I'm rather in the middle. It isn't a 'supportive' bra in the slightest, due to the band and the fact the fabric is super sheer, which is why I think bigger boobed ladies may find this bra slightly annoying. 
It's actually nice because you can wear it as a 'lazy day' instead of your usual boned bra but still look rather hot, if you do get run over by a bus and show your underwear. The added thong bottoms adds to the hot factor of this set. Yes I did say 'hot factor'. I love the double band addition of it, when it's on it really gives it that extra kick with the extra band. You can see the effect better on the Asos model.


Of course the point of this bra is to look like you're wearing nothing but the applique flowers across your rather personal areas. I love this, I'm super pale so you can still see the fabric slightly, but in the dark from afar it does look really effective. It reminds me of something you would see in a higher end lingerie retailer. It's rare high street underwear has that 'double band' sexy addition, it's generally just the standard band, I think that would be my favourite part of this set, along with the applique details.
