My Yorkshire Photographer Recommendation

When it comes to having a photographer for helping out with your blog photos, I think having the right photographer can make all the difference. You want someone that you get along with and understands your vision of the photos! I thought I would write up a post today all about who I would recommend as a photographer in the Yorkshire area. This photographer isn't just for blogging images, they also provide services on weddings, product photos, events and more! I think it's important to support small businesses when you highly recommend them and I always recommend this photographer when people ask.

If you have read some of my previous blog posts or follow me on Instagram, then you may already recognise the name of the photographer that I use and may have already seen a lot of the images she has taken for me. Josey is a photographer who I found through Facebook. I had seen a lot of people sharing her work and I loved the style of the images. We got chatting and decided to do our first ever shoot together for the relaunch of my blog. I had only worked with a few different photographers before for my blog images but these were only on various occasions. I knew that I wanted to find somebody to work with on a more regular occurrence to help me shoot some pictures for my blog and my Instagram. I absolutely loved our first shoot together. I didn't feel nervous, I felt comfortable in front of the camera and that's how I knew I loved working with Josey. If you don't feel comfortable enough to be yourself in front of the camera, then you are never going to like the images. It's so so important to find somebody who you get along with so that you can be yourself and get the best images possible. The reason I love working with Josey so much is because we always have so much fun on our shoots. There's lots of laughing and talking in between shots and I think this makes the experience a thousand times better. I always look forward to our shoots and I'm so happy that I found a photographer who is local to me that can help me out with blog pictures when I need them!

Ways To Be More Positive

Having a more positive outlook on life can make such a difference and although some days, it may be harder than others, thinking positive can make you so much happier. When you're making the choices for you and thinking about things in a positive way, then this is the best way that you can look after yourself. Life is too short to have a negative outlook on things, so we may as well make the most of what we have got and try and see things in the best possible light. I decided that it would be a good idea to sit down and write down the ways that I am trying to live a more positive life!

Taking Time For Yourself 

I think that we can often get caught up in our busy lifestyle and trying to make sure that we are always being productive, that we often forget how important it is to take time out to look after ourselves and rewind. Having this time to clear your mind, re-energise and pamper yourself is exactly what we need to feel more positive. I always find that if I plan out a day where I can focus on myself, then I am always feeling in a better mood the next day. I think that a Sunday is the perfect day for this. It allows you to have a lazy day and get's you prepared for the week ahead. The perfect Sunday for me is putting on a face mask, lighting a candle, watching some films and eating some good food. This time is something that I always try and plan in so that I can take some time out for myself and allows me to wind down every now and then. I am quite bad for planning too much in my schedule and always seem to be on the go, so I am making more of an effort to put this time in as I know it has a positive impact on how I am feeling. Everyone will have their own way of taking time for themselves, whether this is going for a run, listening to music, going shopping, having your nails done and the list is endless. As long as we remember how important this time is in order to look after ourselves and remember to enjoy the down time, then this can defiantly have a positive impact.

The Perfect Film Day: Take 2

Today we have blog post number two of the new series that I have started on my blog! This series gives me the opportunity to recommend some films which I really love and hopefully will give you guys some ideas of new films to watch! As you all know, I am a massive film fan so this series was a long time coming for my blog as discussing films that I love is amazing for me. Just like the last blog post, I won't be giving any spoilers, just some basic information on the film and reasons why I think you should go and watch it. I will be covering a mixture of films and recommending 6 films today!

1. The Marvel Superhero We All Needed

As the majority of you will already know, I am a huge Marvel fan! So, I was super excited to see Captain Marvel because it was another film to add to the franchise and most importantly, this film had a leading female character to add to the marvel universe. There are already some amazing female characters in other Marvel films, but we haven't seen a leading character as a female yet! Captain Marvel was one that I have been looking forward to for months and one that I had to start off this blog post with. I have now seen this film a few times in the cinema and I'm hoping to catch it again before it comes out on DVD. This film is all about Carol and her journey when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war. I would highly recommend this film and I think it's one of my new favourites. Brie Larson plays the character so brilliantly and was the perfect choice to play this character. Captain Marvel is a bad ass female leading lady and as you know, these are the best kind of characters in my eyes. The film is funny, full of action, great story line and makes me really excited to see more of Captain Marvel. I was so excited to see more of Captain Marvel in Endgame...I have now watched this on Friday evening and I have no words for this film! An amazing film that I will be discussing in another blog post coming soon!

I think the whole casting for the film was great and I really enjoyed the different story line that it had compared to other Marvel films. There were so many smaller details that were answered in this film that we have been wanting to know for a while and if you are a Marvel fan, you will know exactly what I'm talking about. Even if you haven't seen any other Marvel films, I think you can still go and see this film and the majority of it will still make sense! It's a really great superhero film with lots of action and funny moments in it too. I already knew it was going to be amazing before I had even seen it and it didn't disappoint in any way! This film is currently still out in cinemas so I would recommend going to see it if you haven't already! 

2. A Film You Have Already Heard Of But It Couldn't Be Missed

Now I already know that 99% of you will have already seen this film but I couldn't leave it out of these blog posts. A Star Is Born has been one of the biggest films recently and I will happily admit that I went to go see this 3 or 4 times in the cinema alone. After seeing the trailer before it was released, I was excited to go and give this one a watch because I love Lady GaGa and I'm also a massive fan of Bradley Cooper. I don't think I quite expected how much I was going to love this film! The story line, the casting, the soundtrack...everything is so amazing! The film is about Jack who is a well know musician who meets Ally and helps her find her fame. I know that Lady GaGa has already done bits of acting here and there but this was her first big film and leading role. I think she is super talented at singing, songwriting and acting! I was really impressed by her performance in this film and think she was the perfect choice. Bradley Cooper also did amazing and I wouldn't expect anything less from him. I also can't believe that he directed this film as well, he did an incredible job and I find it so interesting when people choose to direct and be a leading character within the film.
