Oh hi there you fine bunch of humans.
Long time no speak ey? I've had a much needed week off from this blogging lark and to be perfectly honest, it's been sheer bliss. Waking up this morning with a real creative urge to start writing again was really, truly wonderful and I am SO excited to get back into the swing of things for 2017.
I thought that today, on what is the last day of 2016, before we all toddle off to get our faces on ready for a night of extreme drinking and celebrating, that I would share with you some abso-freaking-lutely HILARIOUS snaps from the past year.
Myself and my dear friend and wonderful photographer Sophie had oh-so much fun selecting these shots to show you the real side of blogging and of course all the glamour!
I like to think that I'm pretty open and honest about how real and highly non-glamorous my life can be, but I know that like many, I do share only the best bits in order to inspire you with your day-to-day outfit picking... UNTIL NOW!
Here is a HUGE selection from an ever HUGER-er selection of failed photographs, those that didn't make the cut until this very day.
I wanted to share these with you, of course, for the LOL's but also in the hope that you'll remember that not everything you see online is the real shebang. 2016 has been a bloody good one for me and I thought I'd end this year of blogging with a rather hilarious bang... ENJOY!
So first up we have a selection of rather unfortunate faces.
Having my photo taken is just the norm for me now, but I must say, after an hour or two of posing, things can get a little boring.
IN STEPS THE FACE PULLING!
A sudden urge to pull the most heinous face towards the camera and in-turn poor Sophie, rushes over me and this is the finished outcome... Me so pretty!
Now it doesn't happen often as usually people run for the hills whenever there is a camera within a four mile radius of them, however when it does the outcome is brilliant. Photo bombers... I salute you!
Similarly to that of face pulling, when boredom strikes... DANCE!
You can't beat it, it's a sure fired way to brighten hours of photo taking especially on the streets of Manchester with S Club 7 playing out of your phone... Yeah, that happens.
Sometimes, just sometimes, a passerby will pass a remark or two. Usually of the perv variety and usually one of three retorts spits back at them from me.
See below, number 1; complete and utter disgust, number 2; "YOU WHAT MATE?!?!" or three "Yeah good one BYE FELICIA"
And now for some general weird and oh-so wonderful outtakes whether thats me just generally being a goof, or Sophie being the diamond that she is and capturing the moment I called rent-a-chin...
Oh how we laugh though and I truly hope this made you smile too.
2016, you've been pretty mint in someways and flipping dreadful in others. Onwards and upwards though ey, and I'll see you on the flip side.
