jan & feb photo outtakes

4th March 2018


Welcome to a new type of post on my blog for 2018…outtakes. I was totes inspired ~ and by inspired I mean, jaw open, dribble about to touch base with my laptop and heart eyes emoji ~ by my holy grail of all admiration in the blogging world – Amy Bell from the little magpie. I won’t bang on (fan girl) too much as I’ll save that for a post I’ve been thinking about for a while now (go-to inspiration gals, coming soon for some more heart eyes emojis).

After reading Amy’s end of year outtake blog post, I felt comforted yet motivated. Comforted by the fact that every blogger has photos that never make it off the memory card and motivated to join in & show that side of me too. So here I welcome the bloopers that ruin the online aesthetic I’ve chosen for myself, along with a little background to add some context…


I pull such sour faces whenever I ask a question. Kirby is behind the lens here so I apologize hun.



These two pictures were taken after I witnessed a giant crane (as in, the bird form) fly so close to Kirby’s head. So close, I genuinely thought it was about to pick her up like a newborn baby in a blanket.





Oh so glam. The hairband is a nice touch too.


Way too much teeth but at least this is a happier shot.


The classic out of focus shot, Matt’s learning ok don’t judge.


Am I high or coming out of a blink?


“Okay yeah” is something I say whenever I think I’ve got enough photos lol sorry Kirbs

I’m yet to post these shots anywhere yet, so you dedicated readers get a first glimpse. Wait – are you dedicated or just nosy to see how bad my outtakes really are?? The more piston images will be up sooooon! Follow me on instagram to make sure you catch them.



incase you fancied something for you ~ if an item isn’t linked below, comment and I’ll let you know where it’s from!



hey willow, love it when you’re cute and all but FGS that’s LIPSTICKS ON CREAM BEDDING. GTFO.


When I realized I was so zoomed in you can see the friends on my chin.


Check the blush compact…I’m using it upside down. I panicked because the timer was about to go on my camera so I ended up looking into the blusher instead of the mirror (mirror is in my hand lol).


Can you blame me?


Deluxe hot choc was hitting the spot in Bath.


couple banter


This was the moment when an actor walking around the Roman Baths (being a roman obvs) started calling Matt my slave and that I should get him to hold the bag I had in my other hand. I found it funny clearly but I think it was more of an awkward laugh cos actors/audience participation stuff sets me ON EDGE which makes this shot even funnier.



People were waiting for me to get a picture…little did they know I wanted 40 more shots so this was the moment I told them “you can come through don’t worry I’ll be here all bloody day!”. I don’t think they understood lol



“can I see?”


“Matt can you come do a one second vid for my one second every day video of our bath trip pls??”


The things I do for a pic. I did get some looks but I can’t work out if it was from the side eye I’m giving right here or the fact I had no coat on. Probs both.

We made it into a cosy pub when it was POURING it down. I’m in danger of sounding less like a millennial here but ‘THE HEAVENS OPENED’. So I was chilly and Matt took this pic.


Not quite sure how I didn’t fall over.


And that’s your lot for January and February. It was just a bit of fun tbh hehe. Be sure to follow me on BLOGLOVIN to stay up to date as well as my other social media platforms. I’d love for you join me and my journey through 2018, the year of posting my outtakes xo

    If these were my ‘outtakes’ I would have each and every one on my Instagram and profile pic and all of that jazz because DAMN you are sooooooooo pretty and aesthetic even when you don’t try to be. You’re a natural in front of the camera. You’re such an inspiration and everything I aspire to be and more. How do you do it?!?!?

    Big Scottish hugs!
