Bow Tie-ty

This is one of my most trusted props, in photography &
in real life, as I love drawing attention to myself in unexpected
ways, like big ass bow ties for example. I own two that I have
created myself, both could be seen on previous posts through out
the blog.

Statuary ;D

Although I do not know as much about Buddhism as
I should, I have always been fascinated by the Buddha
statues, although I do not follow the religion or it's beliefs.

Here is one of three Buddha statues I own.

To start the new week off...

Here's some inspirational posts to brighten up
your week ahead, and inspire from the get go

Missouri [Previously unreleased]

As I was going through my posts in the last year, 
I realised this specific shoot never got published on the
blog, and although I immediately asked myself 'why not',
I can think of a few reasons why it never saw the pages
of the blog until now. 

One of the main reasons would probably be that at the
time, this shoot was done between 'Michael Bolton' & 
'... Just Be A Queen', and I felt too much of this shoot
would be visually similar to Michael Bolton, although 
setting the 3 shoots next to each other now, they compliment
each other quite positively. 

So with that, here is Missouri, in all it's glory.

[Preview Shoot] Diamonds

This shoot was inspired by loss. A colleague of mine's
sister lost a child in this week to cancer. I was never close
to the kid or her mother, but I felt the pain my colleague
carries to this day. RIP kiddo. You're safely Upstairs now

 b\Be on the look out for the sequel shoot coming your way soon

My little Bohemia: my happiness jar

"Happiness, you belong to me"  
-Sam Sparro [Happiness]

This is my happiness jar. It is filled with many things, 
quotes, memories, all related to being happy, 
or things that make me happy. This is directly
inspired from the idea Elizabeth Gilbert, writer of 'Eat Pray Love', 
brought forth. 

Perhaps it green on both sides?

Perfumes: Avon - Infinite Moments For Him

This is one of those fragrances that catches
you by surprise. Looking at the fragrance
notes, I wasn't impressed, but going on
reviews, I decided to buy it anyway. 
And was I glad. this is an absolutely stunner.

It's masculine, it's sexy. It is confident and
it is bold. For more information, check out

For today...

"Just a note on what I'd be posting throughout the
week-end. This will be an eclectic mix of bohemia, 
rhinestones, beliefs, perfumery and advocacy of love.
Cheers, to the friggin weekend! Giggles"

Onions! Onions? yes, well, half an onion?

Hehe, when an onion is freshly cut, all it's good for, 
except for when in food, is to make you cry. But give it
a few days to 'mature' and voila! a simple yet
effective piece for photography ;D

Full post - Glitter bomb

This shoot was inspired by Season 3's winner of
RuPaul's Drag Race, Raja's look at the season's reunited
episode. This is my interpretation:

OMG! [another note to say thanx hehe]

I never expected to turn out this big. From 53 views
to 106! this is absolutely mind blowing. WOW thank
you so much. This totally made my day! I have one more
post to make for tonight, but this... this just gave
me a big boost to snap some more. 

Watch this space! ahhh! haha

A Big, warm thank you!

I have always told myself how awesome it
would be if I got to the point where I reached 50 views or
more, and logging in today, I was so pleasantly surprised.
Thank you to each and every reader on here. This is 
perhaps not the biggest milestone, but this is a personal
triumph for me in my little blog journey hehe. 

Again, a big, warm thank you to each and
every person who made this possible for me ;D

Perfumes: DKNY - Be Delicious

This has been one of my smilers. Everytime
I wear this fragrance, a smile lights up. 
This is a playful, fun & light hearted scent
that has proper staying power and makes its 
presence known. This is my go-to fragrance
when I want to draw attention to myself.

Perfumes: Paco Rabanne - Black XS Pour Elle

This is the female version of Black XS, 
which compliments the male version very well,
although it can stand quite well on its own. 

This was a influenced by for me, purely based
on the fact that the male version smelt so damn good,
I figured, the female version should be pretty awesome
aswell. For more information on its notes & longevity, 

Perfumes: Antonio Banderas - The Golden Secret

This is the little brother of Antonio's previous fragrance,
The Secret (not photographed yet). Many has panned
it as a One Million copy, but I like it more, it is more subdued, 
and I seem to like fragrances who surprises you with 
it's presence, instead of ones that are loud and in your face.

We Are A Shining...

I have tried this idea twice before and felt I haven't 
concieved what I visualised. This time around though,
I loved what I saw. Again, I've found that in shoots where
I do not plan too much ahead, I am happier with the outcome
of the shoot, more spontaneity, whereas with planning you
have a preconceived expectation that you probably would
never meet.
