Dino-Mite with Punky Pins

* Blog post contains gifted items.

I've been a huge fan of Punky Pins for as long as I can remember. Between their dino necklaces, Nasty Woman totes and sweary Christmas penguin pins, they are pretty much my dream brand. Even my tablet is covered in a mix of Hello Kitty stickers from them, and with each collaboration, I swear they have someone following me around because every launch, I feel like I NEED almost everything. So when completely out of the blue I had an email from them asking if I'd be interesting in getting a package from them, dear reader, let me tell you, my face was a picture! And obviously after trying to play it cool for about 60 seconds, I replied with a resounding OHMYGODYESILOVEYOU!!!11! (I might only be exaggerating slightly...)

NAVABI - Plus Size Stock Images Royalty Free

* I was paid as a model on this project, but have not been paid or asked to blog about this campaign or my experience shooting it.

Back in October, I met up with some lovely people in deepest North London to work on an intriguing project with fashion brand Navabi. The brief was exciting - the plan, masterminded by Navabi's social editor Bethany Rutter, was to create a series of stock images featuring a variety of plus size bodies. By offering these images royalty free, it was their hope that they will encourage more plus size representation within the media. So whether you're looking for a new spin on the jealous girlfriend meme, woman laughing at salad or purple haired, chubby hackers, click on for a selection of what we got up to on the day.

One of the problems with being a photographer for fashion brands is that sometimes you find yourself making a mental shopping list whilst you shoot. The second I saw the sample of this gorgeous Lottie Heart Angel Sleeve Midi Dress from Scarlett & Jo, I knew that it'd eventually find its way into my wardrobe when released.

Leopard Print Love


Well, this has been a year. Whilst there have definitely been some high points, and I've done some things I'm really proud of, it's also been a year of stress and fear, both personally and politically. For me Right Queer Right Now was probably my highlight, and something which I'm still incredibly proud of, but my year definitely peaked early. And after many years of driving my poor boyfriend / web designer to distraction, I finally launched a new version of my online portfolio to start hustling harder.

Retro Christmas - H&M+ Dress with smocking


Even at Christmas, as much as I love it, my heart and my style are forever stuck amongst a pile of crunchy leaves in the autumn. But that doesn't mean we can't take something and make it festive - I wore this gorgeous H&M dress to a Christmas party recently, and with the right accessories it fit right in amongst the tinsel and twinkling lights.
