Self-Portraiture

I thought I’d make a post about the kind of camera equipment I use to take my self portraits, since the topic came up in the comments section on one of my recent Flickr pics.

But is it art?

Having recently bought yet more nice art, as mentioned in my previous post, I’ve had a bit of a spending spree on even more art today.

I only popped out to the supermarket, but I decided that whilst I was out, I’d pop into White Lion Antiques and ended up buying a number of things.

I guess this means that I only “popped out” but I ended up “out out“.

Thruxton again

A year ago I posted about popping over to Thruxton Race Circuit for a track day. Gold Track were back there again this year, so I popped over to see the guys and girls.

I wasn’t planning on driving on the track this time, not least because I’m still running the same tyres which are now starting to look rather worn, and also because I didn’t fancy getting up super-early.

And then I went out…

Well, having stated in my post yesterday that I seldom go out, I decided to go out today. 🙂

Ten Years

There is a “10 year challenge” doing the rounds on Social Media at the moment, which is fairly timely for me as it is now 10 years since I first came out in public.

Diary update – an eye infection, and new artwork.

No new self portraiture pics right now, I’m afraid. I have a cyst / lump on my eyelid at the moment which means I can’t really wear makeup. It’s affecting my vision too, which is a little worrying.

New Year, same me.

I’ve been a bit remiss about posting lately, so thought it was about time for an update.

Girl Racer

Girl Racer

Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed from my recent Flickr pics that I have a new car, and that I have also published a pic of me wearing a crash helmet in the car.

So, since I haven’t blogged for a while, and since several people have asked me for more information, I thought I should tell you a bit more.

Out shopping

I popped out to a local Antiques & Collectables fair in Hartley Wintney today.

Despite having far too much jewellery, I couldn’t resist this cute pair of silver earrings for £9.

I liked how the inner and outer hearts moved independently of each other.

I also bought yet another ring, despite having far too many already. I just thought it was unusual. In case it’s not totally obvious from the photo, the ring is formed from the word “Love”.

I then had a little wander round the shops, and snapped a nice little selfie in a full length mirror in a shop.

I’m wearing a dress by Atmosphere that I bought ages ago for £5, a jacket by Jane Norman (which you will have seen many times before), and a glass heart necklace that I bought on Friday for £2 in a charity shop (you can see it better in the pic at the top of the post). The bag is by Radley, and the shoes are by Rocket Dog.

A visit to the hairdresser – wig revitalisation

a.k.a. “Getting wiggy with it

Like any girl like me, I’ve got a number of wigs. Many are cheapies that I bought for photo shoots and general fun, but my four main ones are expensive ones costing several hundred pounds each. I bought them on two separate visits to Beesley Wigs in Sandhurst using their “Buy One Get One Half Price” deals as mentioned in a previous post.

My favourite one is starting to get rather tired and “wiggy”, so I decided it was time to do something about it.
