“It was the flashing lights, and the noise of the machines, and the loud, loud music, all seeming to refract and contract around her, her eyes widening, her hair swooshing, her slow smile shining. She seemed an actual part of the place – all fun, all joy, all shimmery skittering energy.”

A few weekends ago Carters Steam Fair pulled into town. A unique attraction consisting entering of rare vintage equipment and rides and is believed to be the largest vintage traveling funfair in the world.

We decided to make a day of it and cycled over to the funfair to try out all the rides and stuff our faces with candy floss and hotdogs. I felt like a kid again and it was truly marvellous!

Styling was kept bright, colourful and playful to match our surroundings and Justin opted for a candid approach snapping pics of me when I least expected it.

Colour is a big trend this season and I am loving all the yellows and reds. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your prints and colours – be bold and have fun!

The Secret Garden

September 25, 2015

Wallenstein Garden or otherwise know as Valdštejnská zahrada, is my absolute favourite thing about Prague. A secret garden in the middle of Lesser Town, right below the Prague Castle.

We first stumbled upon the exquisite garden on our first day exploring the streets of Prague while on the way to dinner in Old Town and I knew straight away that I simply just had to shoot a look post there.

So on our last day in Prague we made our way to Wallenstein Garden to shoot my look post. As we got there it started pouring with rain, and I mean pouring… buckets! So much for getting up early to curl my hair.

I was determined to shoot this post and no amount of rain was going to stop me. So I hid under archways while Justin stood in the rain, camera in one hand, an umbrella in the other to protect his camera. He really is my super photographer.
