Snowfall Hill

Still in a festive mood people? Good. I hope so. If you haven’t decorated your home yet, there is still time! We’re spoiled with so much seasonal themed clothing, decor and furniture I’m sure there will be something you like available. But make sure once  you’re done, that you spend some time writing a letter to the Big Guy telling him what a good girl you’ve been or…like me…you’ll end up with some coal in your stocking instead!

Me and My Boys

What can I say? I guess I was in a ‘Festive Gangsta’ mood when I did this photo. It clearly shows that I fail at doing *anything* in a credibly sinister way; even when I’m trying to look rough, I can hear you saying “awww isn’t she cute? coochie coo!” Pfft. Me and my boys are gonna rough you up. Make you eat yellow snow. Generally do nasty stuff, like make you tea without any sugar in it. Because we’re mean….and nasty 😉

SLetfix & Chill

It’s that Sunday morning feeling. You know the sort. You wake, you lie in bed contemplating whether your bladder can last another 40 mins if you burrow back under the covers…..and then you realise, no, no it can’t. It’s time to get up, get dressed and get on with the day. But it’s Sunday! The one day of the week where you allow yourself the pleasure of doing absolutely nothing. Bliss. Heaven. Oh Wondrous Joy. So what do you do with this precious time? SLetfix & Chill, of course 😀

Suck it!

As Wynn downed her fifth cup of eggnog she wondered what her life had become. Getting sozzled to survive the family rampage on the big day. Bedecking herself in so much acrylic that she could electrocute a family of pygmy goats….or combust if she got too close to the lantern flame. Even the home decor had become a viable form of entertainment. Wynn had a vague thought of splinters in her ass as she tumbled backwards, with the final thoughts of “I really hope the nephews didn’t video this for YouTube” as she passed out in the corner.


Winter’s Hollow opened this weekend too and runs til the end of the month. Organised by Dark Passions Events, there are a fab range of designers catering to your dark Christmas needs. There is also a hunt at the event and a lot of designers have generously put out gifts too.

Be Merry

…..or “Time to crack open the shiraz” as I also like to call this time of year. I should really be slapping myself on the wrist as I mentally told myself no festive blog posts before the 1st December. But, there you go. I suppose rules are meant to be broken. I’m going to squarely place the blame on this cute sweater dress I’m wearing because, well, it makes me feel festive (mutters). I’m also going to place the blame squarely with this pose because, well, it makes me want a large glass of one. But then again….this time of year, it’s the only way I can survive the chaos of family get togethers >.>

When nookie doesn’t mean *nookie*

Yesterday I posted what I thought was an innocuous title on the blog, which referred to the term “nookie”. I underestimated how many people would pick up on that….aaaaaand how my definition of a word isn’t necessarily the ‘actual’ definition of the word! Nookie to me means cuddles. It means cuddling up with someone special, kisses, some touches but most importantly it’s shared time together. Apparently, to the rest of the world it means doin’ the dirty. Hmm. Well, they say you learn something new every day!

It led my group of friends on to thinking about other terms that mean something different to what’s intended. For example…netflix and chill. Yes. I am one of the minority that literally means “I want to watch netflix on the couch, in my pjs with you, in a blanket fort and chill” when I say netflix and chill. Not doin’ the dirty.

Wouldn’t life just be easier if we all said what we meant?

Today I had the fun (and very educational experience) of collaborating with Cassie Middles for this picture as part of a BVN group challenge. As I was still fiddling with light settings, Cassie had already sourced photos for poses, laid out the decor and made suggestions. My response: “I clicked a button” LOL. One thing I’ll take away from this though is how we as bloggers/photographers, can take the same ‘scene’ and interpret it in different ways. What do we focus on? What matters to us? That alone was an eye opener for me and one I hope to repeat with further collaborations. So, thanks to the BVN group for suggesting this opportunity in the first place and thanks to Cassie for being patient with this 10 year old noob :*

 

Now if I were you, I’d check out Cassie’s Flickr and Facebook pages. Maybe her YouTube channel too. Have a look and see how she interpreted the same ‘scene’. Enjoy x
