double take

21th April 2014
Needless to say everything is slightly manic in the new house so I haven’t managed to snap any outfit pictures or rustle any recipes up. That said, the fact that the Sky man hasn’t hooked us up yet means I’ve been having to find new ways to entertain myself in the evenings when we finally finish sorting through the boxes containing our lives. Now regular readers will know I am partial to a selfie on the odd occasion and any opportunity to take it to the next level is always welcomed. From text over-lays to brightness and contrast adjustments, there are apps for all your selfie needs in preparation for sharing. The success of photo sharing apps and websites make it apparent just how true the phase “a picture says a thousand words”. With one photo you are able inspire, motivate and touch people all over the word, so I was intrigued when I was introduced to this great new app which gives you the ability to show 2 images at one time, no I’m not talking split screens on Frametastic. You simply upload two photos, one main one and another hidden which is only revealed when placing your finger on the main image. I specifically like this feature for before and after shots because fitness is my thaaang but I can also imagine it would be great for make up artists to show their work and fellow fashionistas to show their outfits from day to night and it means you don’t need to worry about chopping your images down to fit them into a split frame so you maintain as much of the image as possible.

I signed up a few nights ago and have been browsing and uploading here and there. I find that images can take quite a while to load (this may be down to our internet as we gear up to switch service provider) and navigating takes some getting used to but I really like the feel of the app. It’s always nice when something is new and untouched by internet trolls.
You can try the app for yourself by downloading it from the iTunes store here. They appear to have a competition going on at the moment if you upload a pic of what you’re wearing between April 21st and May 4th make sure to hashtag #OOTD14 I’ve seen some great entries as you get to be so creative with the two pictures to play with.
Looking forward to posting returning to normal and I hope you had a great Easter 🙂

Everything feels a little more optimistic as March begins don’t you think?
It’s the start of spring in my book Evergreen shortly followed by the spring equinox so there’s ample time to prepare, nest and refresh. 
The light returns, hello March 🌱
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
