A busy August full of bridal make-ups and occasion make-ups for my private clients. I was also busy with shoots in cool locations including Camden Market, a nature reserve and the Hitchin Lavender Farm. I have updated my bridal website this month www.nikimakeup.co.uk and my.com fashion and beauty site will shortly follow! We also had a lovely weekend away in the peak district with our doggies Middy and Lucas who greatly enjoyed the long walks. See a few pictures from my month below.
Well that was my month hope you enjoyed reading and do like and comment. X

Yesterday I had a fun day working at a beautiful nature reserve in the Essex countryside.
The fashion shoot was inspired by festival style.
Art directed by myself, I collated a huge amount of research images on my pinterest board you can see this here:http://pinterest.com/nikimakeup/festival-chic/
The photographer was Ian Hooton (www.ianhooton.com), styling by Jenna Cutter (www.jcfashionstylist.com) and our lovely model for the day was Alessandra Kirn at Storm models.
Below are some pictures I took during the day behind the scenes.

My favourite nail colour at the moment is Chanel 505 Particuliere.
A stunning tawny grey tone that looks effortlessly chic.
Chanel nail colours offer high shine, intense colour and are super fast drying
A must have for autumn nails!

July flew by, a gorgeous month of sunny warm weather for a lovely change!
The month began with my first wedding anniversary and our beautiful wedding rose bloomed right on time. We visited Saint Paul De Vence, in the south of France to celebrate. The owner of our beautiful hotel even took us for a spin in one of his Ferrari's! This made our first anniversary even more memorable.
Back to work its been a busy month of weddings and trials visiting some beautiful venues and locations for shoots. The highlight was shooting in an amazing location house along the seafront in Camber Sands. It was such a hot day, the sea looked azure blue in the sunlight I thought I was back in the south of France,almost a shame to be there working!
Aside from this I have been enjoying the gorgeous sunshine spending a lot of the time in the garden with my doggies and enjoying many a BBQ with family and friends. Here's hoping the warm weather continues into August. X
