Lick of Life: May

Well, I didn’t quite stick to my “take my camera out everyday” aim, but I definitely used it a lot more in May than I usually would. I also picked up my Canon AE-1 and shot some film! I then proceeded to torture myself and watch lots of youtube videos on medium format photography and now I want Mamiya 7, though. Oops.






May consisted of walks in the sunshine with Milo, taking photos of flowers, a little trip to Brighton (covered in this post), seeing friends & taking photos for/helping set up my dads new watch shop.





As always, after trying out a few different brands, I went back to my trusty Korres. This time I bought the Wild Rose exfoliating face wash and the Almond and Linseed hair mask. Korres products always smell sooooo goooood.

And thats it for my miscellaneous May photos! What did you get up to? Do you have any interesting summer plans for June? I’m hoping to be able to visit a beach, and my birthday is coming up, too.

Lick of Life: April

I didn’t bring my camera out in April. Nor have I been feeling that great. Buuuut I really want to step up my game, so my aim for May is to bring my camera out with me EVERYWHERE. Even if I’m just going food shopping. You never know when you’ll see a cute puppy or something, right??
I might also do a lil vloggie because I’m off to Brighton to see Kishi Bashi on the 15th!

SO the following is mostly a bunch of phone camera shots of what I got up to in April – I apologise (Mainly to myself).









A Lick of Life: March

It’s a late one this month! I’ve had no internet access for most of the month, so doing anything (you know, blogging… WORK!) has been nigh on impossible. Fingers crossed our new provider can get us back online tomorrow. It’s also been a pretty packed, stressful month for me, so photos haven’t really been first on my agenda, oops!



I had my hair coloured professionally in March… lets just say it didn’t go well. This was the first attempt. After one wash I was left with cartoonish yellow-blonde hair. Every time I caught myself in the mirror I let out an “eep!” sort of sound, but ended up just trying to repeat my mantra “It’s okay; David Bowie Vibes”. I went again just over a week later and its a bit better/darker, but fading fast!

This is the only lipstick I’ve been wearing all month. Urban Decay Comfort Matte in ‘Carnal’ – apparently its super close to the sold out Nars limited edition lipstick in ‘Kiss Me Stupid’, and I’m finding it really suits red hair!



It was this one’s birthday! Aaaand, he bought himself his first car! He is now the super proud owner of a shiny gold Mini One – and I’m in looooove with it. It’s gold – of course I’m in love with it.

Harry took around 200 photos to get this one. I need to get better at having my photo taken.

Lets hope April is full of better, warmer days for everyone! Did anyone else have a full on March??

Little Lick of Life: February


VERY slowly going through this book, both for myself and Stark & Goodwin. It asks such basic questions that you kind of naturally think about, but never write down. This forces you to get everything down on paper and really look at it all. Saving my head from swimming with branding ideas!

I’ll be making a blog post about an Etsy update in the next few days – this has been made in to an A3 print!

Harry got me some of my favourite flowers for Valentines Day. We don’t normally do anything out of the ordinary on this day, but colourful flowers are always appreciated!

I visited Bath again this month for work – finally started to see some amazing progress with the apartments. If you’d like, you can see more of my interior photography on my (temporary) portfolio site: meggieamey.tumblr.com


I really like this teeny face I quickly sketched up out of nowhere a little while ago. The eyes are really different to my normal “style” – but I kinda love it.

What did you do in February? Are you planning anything interesting for March? I’m hoping for brighter, warmer days. A girl can dream!

Little Lick of Life: October

I never know whether or not to group this and my ‘favourite things’ posts together…they can kind of get similar and overlap sometimes!

A walk in Arger Fen woods

Pumpkin picking!

I never know if these braids suit me, but my hair is finally long enough again to do it!
My work space set up for the next couple of weeks.
And finally an amazing sunset on a foggy evening while walking Milo.

Little lick of Life: September

What I’ve been up to this month in image form…


Finally brought this little one home! My sister bought it for me over a year ago and I kept forgetting to bring it back with me whenever I visited her. I reported it as soon as I got back and it has since gone CRAZY.

Bought this dress and then it got too cold to wear it. Ugh! Until next summer, pretty dress </3

Inktober is upon us! I’ve been drawing a lot and getting ready, making my title card for some YouTube videos that I’ll be uploading during October. I’m planning on uploading once a week, but we’ll see how it goes!


My sister kindly brought back my Sephora order from Canada with her, can’t wait to try these!!!

Aaand she brought me back some goodies! Thanks, Sunne!
