I honestly never thought this day would come, Grad Balls and Graduation, it all seemed like a far away dream, but what do you know, three years are up and here I am. Sussex Grad Ball was to be held at The Grand Hotel, on Brighton sea front. A gorgeous, iconic building, engulfed in history. There was to be hot dog stands, photo booths, pop corn and a live band. It was set to be a great night.</span></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/18684626305" style="text-align: left;" title="IMG_3963 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3963" height="960" src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/453/18684626305_faab8860b5_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center></div></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/18061974164" title="IMG_3953 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3953" height="960" src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/475/18061974164_1cb99846c3_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I had agonised over what to wear for weeks, I wanted to look and feel special, and not being very body confident, this seemed an impossible task. My Mum and I trawled the internet for the perfect dress and finally settled on this one from ASOS. It was in my favourite colour, it had a full skirt, a vintage jacquard print and it hid all my least favourite bits of my body. It was expensive, but perfect and I wanted to look back on my Grad Ball photos in years to come and not feel saddened by them and the way my body looked.&nbsp;</span></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/18679890142" style="text-align: left;" title="IMG_3948 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3948" height="359" src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/445/18679890142_51e1a66838_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center></div></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/18061949264" title="IMG_3972 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3972" height="960" src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/348/18061949264_6cd7c5d871_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/18061983004" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="IMG_3951 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3951" height="359" src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/514/18061983004_0c8ec73d2d_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;"><a href="http://www.asos.com/asos/asos-salon-floral-jacquard-sweetheart-neck-prom-dress/prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=4874042&amp;clr=Mint&amp;SearchQuery=jacquard+dress&amp;pgesize=36&amp;pge=0&amp;totalstyles=133&amp;gridsize=3&amp;gridrow=3&amp;gridcolumn=1">Dress: ASOS</a><br />Shoes: New Look</span></td></tr></tbody></table><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The grad ball ended up really being a great night- one to remember, even if I did wake up the next day with blisters all over my feet.

He is pictured above and after lots of blood, sweat and tears, Sir Eglamore (named after the Kate Rusby song) is road ready, making him one of only about 36 registered Park Lanes on the road! We registered him in the annual <a href="http://www.london-to-brighton.co.uk/">London to Brighton Mini Run</a>, partly to show him off, partly to see if he could cope with the journey and partly just for a family day of fun. Spoiler alert: he behaved perfectly well and the ride went without a hitch. I thought I'd share some snaps I took on the day- it was mini madness.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><center><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-j9aQ-dN1KYI/VWIv8hTJOwI/AAAAAAAAJd8/uNjxpQfWb3g/s1600/IMG_3670.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-j9aQ-dN1KYI/VWIv8hTJOwI/AAAAAAAAJd8/uNjxpQfWb3g/s640/IMG_3670.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><center><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-E_GTmLdjBm0/VWIwMV2SCgI/AAAAAAAAJeE/RubRbI1yCII/s1600/IMG_3748.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" height="264" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-E_GTmLdjBm0/VWIwMV2SCgI/AAAAAAAAJeE/RubRbI1yCII/s640/IMG_3748.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-k8v-ubmf8zs/VWIv2qAxn9I/AAAAAAAAJd0/QRs1Px2AYIM/s640/IMG_3725.jpg" width="640" /></span></div><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Q-p1BePvyEQ/VWI8wPw55RI/AAAAAAAAJfQ/HxlV_HF-0n0/s1600/IMG_3762.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Q-p1BePvyEQ/VWI8wPw55RI/AAAAAAAAJfQ/HxlV_HF-0n0/s640/IMG_3762.jpg" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Dad posing with his labour of love.</span></span></td></tr></tbody></table><center><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UwdwboDIxTk/VWIv0nu5qDI/AAAAAAAAJds/CDw1Xo34XBY/s1600/IMG_3709.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UwdwboDIxTk/VWIv0nu5qDI/AAAAAAAAJds/CDw1Xo34XBY/s640/IMG_3709.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mTUn-SoDwPk/VWIwnkGyRjI/AAAAAAAAJeU/c2by2h2X33s/s1600/IMG_3755.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mTUn-SoDwPk/VWIwnkGyRjI/AAAAAAAAJeU/c2by2h2X33s/s640/IMG_3755.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><center><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-e96etVVCCl4/VWIwk_79UDI/AAAAAAAAJeM/z0SUcrxZ5yM/s1600/IMG_3752.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-e96etVVCCl4/VWIwk_79UDI/AAAAAAAAJeM/z0SUcrxZ5yM/s640/IMG_3752.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-VjPqCSZmPdc/VWI8Yf10ztI/AAAAAAAAJfI/v0_nThJ3PLs/s1600/IMG_3763.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-VjPqCSZmPdc/VWI8Yf10ztI/AAAAAAAAJfI/v0_nThJ3PLs/s640/IMG_3763.jpg" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; text-align: left;">I'm Wearing:</span></span><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; text-align: left;">Tee: London to Brighton Mini Run 2015 owner's shirt</span></span><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; text-align: left;">Jacket: Primark</span></span><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; text-align: left;">Skirt: Vintage</span></span><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; text-align: left;">Boots: Barratts</span></span></td></tr></tbody></table><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">I wore a vintage skirt and petticoat, in order to fit with the throwback theme of the day, with most of the minis being classic Austins and promptly donned my 2015 mini run shirt to get into the spirit of the day.

The premise was simple, a collection of stars and vloggers (from the likes of Tallia Storm to Zoella) are creating slogan t shirts, featuring their unique 'famous last words,' which will be sold to make a stand against strokes. The t shirts are each being sold for £10 on <a href="http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/page/home">Boohoo</a>, with £5 of each sale going to the <a href="https://www.stroke.org.uk/">Stroke Association charity</a>. As soon as I heard about the campaign I was keen to get involved- my Dad actually suffered a stroke in his 40s, as a young, fit and healthy non-smoker who didn't drink excessively it was a huge shock to the whole family. Fortunately, due to wonderful doctors and nurses and an operation on his heart my Dad is now fully recovered. But other people, young and old, aren't so lucky and I remember the intense sadness I felt when I visited my Dad on the stroke ward and saw so many helpless people, prisoners in their own bodies.&nbsp;</span></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/17272431269" style="text-align: left;" title="IMG_3604 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3604" height="960" src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8868/17272431269_e0fa2e7acd_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/17432656506" style="text-align: left;" title="IMG_35991 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_35991" height="448" src="https://c4.staticflickr.com/8/7778/17432656506_02b40a17a9_k.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I designed my t shirt with my 'famous last words' 'No T No Shade' which is a fun, silly nod to Ru Paul, (a man I admire for his work in the gay and drag community- breaking down barriers and social "norms") and an appropriate tea pun, as long term readers will know I'm a huge tea lover. I wanted a fun slogan t shirt which I myself would love to wear and want to spend money on. I think I achieved my goal, however, the final say is down to you! The t shirt with the most votes will be printed and sold on boohoo, so if you like my design as much as I do, I'd love for you to vote for me, <a href="http://bit.ly/1IwnqoQ">here</a>!</span></center></div></div></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/17272516039" title="IMG_3603 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3603" height="960" src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8844/17272516039_43a99f5474_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/17271220420" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="IMG_3599 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3599" height="960" src="https://c4.staticflickr.com/8/7692/17271220420_b2659c7ea9_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">*T Shirt: Designed by ME! <a href="http://bit.ly/1IwnqoQ">Vote for it here</a>.<br /><a href="http://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/clothing-427/skirts-449/60s-floral-print-pelmet-skirt-4274218?bi=41&amp;ps=20">*Skirt: Topshop</a><br />Shoes: Primark<br />*Sunglasses: OASAP <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Heart-Shaped-Retro-Lolita-Sunglasses/dp/B00C0XSZ7K">(Similar Here)</a><br />Bracelets: Pandora</span></td></tr></tbody></table><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Loads of awesome bloggers and vloggers have been invited to get involved in the competition, and you can view all their <a href="http://www.boohoo.com/icat/slogantees">entries here.</a>&nbsp;I'd like to thank Boohoo for asking me to get involved and for sending me my blank t shirt and fabric pens and allowing me to get creative!

It came from the lovely people behind the <a href="http://www.007fragrances.com/women/007-for-women/007-for-women-eau-de-parfum/">007 James Bond Fragrances</a>&nbsp;who gave me a kit for a great James Bond, Casino Royale themed night in, to celebrate the release of the <a href="http://www.007fragrances.com/women/007-for-women/007-for-women-eau-de-parfum/">007 For Women Eau De Parfum</a>. With a bottle of Bollinger popped, Casino Royal in the DVD player and 007 cupcakes at our fingertips, I settled in for a night of fun with some friends. Even though I kept it casual, I saw no reason not to dress up with some new threads from Topshop and dress up my living room with streamers and balloons!</span></center></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/17325879191" title="IMG_3467 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3467" height="960" src="https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8858/17325879191_491e19f1c7_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-F6KVvyxzUl0/VUK5WPawL3I/AAAAAAAAJY0/Ji-pxuHqzjk/s1600/IMG_3459.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-F6KVvyxzUl0/VUK5WPawL3I/AAAAAAAAJY0/Ji-pxuHqzjk/s1600/IMG_3459.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-QRzqLy7LkkQ/VUK5a6lctrI/AAAAAAAAJY8/gTF0iUr8-dE/s1600/IMG_3474.jpg" imageanchor="1"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-QRzqLy7LkkQ/VUK5a6lctrI/AAAAAAAAJY8/gTF0iUr8-dE/s1600/IMG_3474.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The perfume itself is housed in a gorgeous black bottle, with a cool textured design.

It's a gorgeous scent thats seductive enough for night, whilst also being subtle enough for day wear, also. It comes in 4 sizes which is perfect for anyone wanting to try a small size, right up to a season fan who needs a lasting fix of the amazing scent!</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Wpr0TTbddSE/VUK6q87ldyI/AAAAAAAAJZQ/WlWfjCXXcUA/s1600/IMG_3535.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Wpr0TTbddSE/VUK6q87ldyI/AAAAAAAAJZQ/WlWfjCXXcUA/s1600/IMG_3535.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></span></a></div><center></center></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/17324412892" title="IMG_3481 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3481" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7692/17324412892_35a05f36e0_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/17325870751" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="IMG_3499 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3499" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7749/17325870751_cf3fb831cc_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">*Dress: Oh My Love Via Topshop<br /><a href="http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?searchTerm=coral+platforms&amp;storeId=12556&amp;productId=19207996&amp;urlRequestType=Base&amp;categoryId=&amp;langId=-1&amp;productIdentifier=product&amp;catalogId=33057">*Shoes: Topshop</a></span></td></tr></tbody></table><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I throughly enjoyed a night in with a Casino Royale on dvd, cupcakes and of course, champagne....

Whilst the outfit seems simple -and certainly wasn't taxing to put together- the cut outs on the cami top and the mixing of the silky material of the top with the faux fur creates a chic feel.

I jumped at the chance, as it meant I would be able to visit a city I'd never seen before, whilst also bringing my Mum along for the ride, and giving her a well deserved break! Citroën are also giving <i>you </i>the chance to win a similar weekend getaway with the C4, so stayed tuned till the end of this post to find out how to enter.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">My Mum and I chose Bath to visit, as I heard great things about it, and the lovely <a href="http://www.thebriarroseblog.com/">Megan</a>&nbsp;had given me a lot of suggestions of things to see and places to visit, whilst we were there. So, with the playlist sorted (my Ipod plugged easily into one of the two USB ports in the C4) and both our names on the insurance, we set out on the drive, determined to make the most of the C4. The car is stylish and incredibly comfortable and my Mum and I had a fabulous time playing around with the gadgets such as the touch screen control panel, which controlled everything from the heating to the music and the GPS, to trying out the cruise control settings.&nbsp;</span></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-TyajWWXI0ko/VQOOv-jEsLI/AAAAAAAAJU0/2BCr_NFJA2Q/s1600/IMG_3208.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-TyajWWXI0ko/VQOOv-jEsLI/AAAAAAAAJU0/2BCr_NFJA2Q/s1600/IMG_3208.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Our ride for the weekend, outside our lovely hotel</span></td></tr></tbody></table><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-8qm9hsc4Ue8/VQOSGRiLK4I/AAAAAAAAJVI/nMPYxSVyMNI/s1600/IMG_3188.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-8qm9hsc4Ue8/VQOSGRiLK4I/AAAAAAAAJVI/nMPYxSVyMNI/s1600/IMG_3188.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9rJsNRAinBw/VQOSJmVcYII/AAAAAAAAJVQ/-K8z-1A_RWU/s1600/IMG_3198.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9rJsNRAinBw/VQOSJmVcYII/AAAAAAAAJVQ/-K8z-1A_RWU/s1600/IMG_3198.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Above, you can see photos outside the hotel we stayed in -<a href="http://www.expedia.co.uk/Bath-Hotels-Bailbrook-House.h78991.Hotel-Information?chkin=18%2F03%2F2015&amp;chkout=19%2F03%2F2015">Bailbrook House</a>- including a photo of my Mum and I together.

Oops! Bath has a huge range of shops, but by far my favourites were the antique shops and of course, the tea shops. We had been tipped off by Megan that <a href="http://beasvintagetearooms.com/">Bea's Vintage Tearooms</a>&nbsp;was the best place for a refuel and afternoon tea, which both my Mum and I are big fans of. Those of you who follow my Instagram account (<a href="http://instagram.com/heyamyjane">HeyAmyJane</a>) will have seen the beautiful cake stand adorned with cakes, scones and finger sandwiches we enjoyed there.&nbsp;</span><br /><div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">We saw the gorgeous Royal Crescent, the incredible views of the Pulteney Bridge and were wowed by Baths over all aesthetic. It provided the perfect backdrop for 'OOTDs' (which will be appearing soon on here) and many Instagram posts. With the help of the C4 we crammed a weeks worth of activities into two days, enjoying cocktails in Bath's 'Opium' bar (a cute, underground vintage establishment), seeing all the sites and taking in the culture. We both loved Bath and had a fabulous weekend.</span></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16806238452" title="IMG_3213 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3213" height="960" src="https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8706/16806238452_af0ae6251b_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">If you'd like to enter to win a weekend break with Citroën C4 Cactus, head to their new <a href="http://lovec4cactus.co.uk/">website (link)</a> and submit your 'weekend wish,' mine was 'to give my Mum a weekend break in a new city.'

I'm back with a new outfit post! Long time no 'OOTD.' Put it down to Christmas chub and a busy second term back a uni.This outfit you are seeing here is what I wore to brunch with my family on Mothering Sunday. It's about as dark as my wardrobe goes and as close to 'monochrome' as you'll ever see me be! Ironically, as the weather is getting brighter I'm getting more comfortable in darker clothing, who knew.&nbsp;</span></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16824627015" title="IMG_3330 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3330" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7641/16824627015_fa6c51100d_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16202303494" title="IMG_3328 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3328" height="960" src="https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8708/16202303494_3795cc0dec_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16204758253" title="IMG_3325 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3325" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7648/16204758253_2a44bc760f_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16823553702" title="IMG_3327 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3327" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7288/16823553702_7fe8b975e1_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16204712873" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="IMG_3329 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3329" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7601/16204712873_637a6efe55_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Top: H&amp;M<br />Skirt: Topshop<br />*Boots: Barratts<br />Jacket: Primark<br />Cardigan: H&amp;M<br /><a href="http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Therapy+Nala+backpack/201501603,default,pd.html">*Bag: Therapy at House Of Fraser</a></span></td></tr></tbody></table><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I love this <a href="http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Backpacks+Rucksacks/197,default,sc.html">backpack</a>, in fact, I think it's one of the first backpacks I've owned since my 'Roxy' backpack days in high school!

text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Mother's Day is coming up for those of us in the UK, this Sunday to be exact. If you are looking for a last minute present which really shows your Mum how grateful for her you are, look no further than Joshua James Jewellery. They contacted me a while back asking if I would like to review an item from their website, and I was spoilt for choice. They have tonnes of brands, from large names like '<a href="http://www.joshuajamesjewellery.co.uk/products/joshua-james-collection.html">Thomas Sabo</a>' and 'Pandora' to lesser known brands- something for every budget.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Long term readers of my blog will know I'm a sucker for <a href="http://www.joshuajamesjewellery.co.uk/products/pandora.html">Pandora jewellery</a>, so I chose to review one of the new Pandora silver bangles. Much like the other Pandora bracelets, you can add beads to it, or keep it as is.

It wasn't so bad. I haven't lost all the weight I want to, yet, nor am I happy with my body as it is, but I felt enough confidence to 'don the con' and in the words of Taylor Swift 'shake it off.' This new found confidence is thanks to </span><a href="http://www.dietchef.co.uk/" style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">Diet Chef</a><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;"> and that's what this post is going to be about, my week 3 updates, progress and how I've found it.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Well, I'm down 8 and a half pounds, which is exciting and my friends have mentioned to me that they can see the weight loss on me, which is so encouraging. I've noticed changes in my body personally, too. The tops of my arms are less 'jiggly' and my stomach is flatter and doesn't bloat as much- winning! I'm also completely comfortable with the diet chef food portions now. My body doesn't ask for more and I don't get those late night cravings anymore, which were my main downfall.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The weight loss has slowed down, but I had been expecting this, as you always tend to lose more at the start of your diet. I'm at the stage of losing about 2lbs or so a week, which is a nice, healthy amount. Every meal I eat, I feel satisfaction that I've stuck at this for 3 weeks. Watching my pile of Diet Chef foods depleat is exciting and also a little bit worrying. I know that with Diet Chef, my three meals a day are sorted for me... There is no chance of overeating or binging and I don't have to worry about making healthy choices. Diet Chef has become a safety blanket I'm not quite reading to give up, yet!</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Next week is the end of my month trial of Diet Chef and it will also be the week I finally reveal my 'before' and 'after' shots- eek! Stay tuned!</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><br /><center style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-align: left;"><div style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Amy x</span></span></div><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><div><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/TheCameraLiesBeauty/videos" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Main Channel</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/CameraContemplations" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Vlog Channel</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://twitter.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Twitter</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://instagram.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Instagram</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://the-cameraslying.tumblr.com/" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Tumblr</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/2704469/the-cameras-lying" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Bloglovin'</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://www.facebook.com/TheCamerasLying" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Facebook</a></span><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">&nbsp;</span></div><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">P.O Box:</span></span></span></span></center><center style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-align: left;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">PO BOX AMY JANE</span></span></span></span></center><center style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-align: left;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">PREMIER PR</span></span></span></span></center><center style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-align: left;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">2-4 BUCKNALL STREET</span></span></span></span></center><center style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-align: left;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">LONDON</span></span></span></span></center><center style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-align: left;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">WC2H 8LA</span></span></span></span></center></div>Amyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04103030492884413474noreply@blogger.com3tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5504559646882322903.post-53571280746625425962015-01-27T16:32:00.001+00:002015-01-27T16:32:30.782+00:00Personal: On Love <div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://40.media.tumblr.com/eca7667e5cd82c09600446cc188afac2/tumblr_niprtwEUIg1s6pd60o1_540.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" height="408" src="https://40.media.tumblr.com/eca7667e5cd82c09600446cc188afac2/tumblr_niprtwEUIg1s6pd60o1_540.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></div><div dir="ltr"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I'm infatuated with the idea that I'm the protagonist of a great rom-com.

I got to see the first episode of each of the series, meet some of the cast at the after party and even go to the very top floor of the Gherkin for the best views of London, cucumber inspired cocktail in hand. I have an interview video coming on <a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/TheCameraLiesBeauty/videos">my channel</a> very soon, with some of the cast of 'Banana' and a mini vlog of the event- so stay tuned for that. This post, however, will be showing you what I wore on the evening, photographed by the lovely and talented <a href="http://instagram.com/mrollieali">Mr Ollie Ali</a>, who I <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2015/01/photography-interview-with-mr-ollie-ali.html">interviewed, previous on my blog</a>.</span></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/15683872103" title="IMG_3065 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3065" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7578/15683872103_567a908838_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/15681373174" title="IMG_3058 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3058" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7539/15681373174_028e13d3e7_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16301994021" title="IMG_3063 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3063" height="960" src="https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8563/16301994021_ae12c50963_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16277810356" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="IMG_3068 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3068" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7518/16277810356_347488ed3f_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Photos by <a href="http://instagram.com/mrollieali">Mr Ollie Ali</a></span><br /><a href="http://www.missguided.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/109486/s/shiraz-strappy-lace-detail-puffball-mini-dress-in-mint/category/477/"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Dress: Missguided</span></a><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Coat: *Urban Code London</span><br /><a href="http://www.barratts.co.uk/"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Boots: *Barratts</span></a></td></tr></tbody></table><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I wasn't brave enough to go cold turkey -quite literally- without my tights, as the UK is very chilly at the moment, however, I did wear a strappy dress and my faux fur coat over the top- just for good measure.

text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-uOUUB4IzDkY/VL6ooLU6cLI/AAAAAAAAJRE/btxnf2a0sFM/s1600/thumbnail4.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black;

I won't lie to you, there were some difficult points. The first few days were certainly the hardest, you haven't seen any physical change in your or your body yet and there is absolutely no motivation to continue on. The amount of time I almost called up Dominos, getting my Jennfier Lawrence on like, 'where's the pizza?!' But I persevered and on the third day when I suddenly lost a couple of pounds, that then became the driving force behind my motivation to continue. I want to wake up every morning and be able to do a celebratory fist pump when I step on the scales.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">So, Amy, crunch those numbers for us, eh? Well, I'm down 7lbs, which is half a stone. I'm pretty excited but what I'm more proud of is the strength and determination I've gained from persevering with this. I've stuck to my guns and even on the odd occasion where I have broken away from the Diet Chef diet, I've done it with control. On the third day, after my final exam, I treated myself to a small packet of Magic Stars and a week later, I went out for lunch with my pal Rosie, and chose a salad. Pat on the back for me.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">So what of Diet Chef, itself? Well, the food so far is yummy, there are some thing I prefer over others, the protein shakes, sweet and sour chicken and pretzel sticks are my favourites, but I haven't found anything I particularly dislike yet. What I'm most impressed with, so far, is the ease of everything. Other than milk, fruit and veg, I hardly have to worry about food shopping, or running out of anything. All the Diet Chef food itself can be cooked in under 4 mins in the microwave- I hardly want to give up the quick and easy food lifestyle I'm getting used to.</span></div><center><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Y3u8bwD3I-A" width="640"></iframe></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Above is my first weight loss video, which shares some of my weight loss tips which have been helping keep me on track the past week or so.

Today, we are talking to Ollie, better known on the internet as Mr Ollie Ali. I sat down to ask him some questions about his porthographical&nbsp;roots, and take some of my own photographs of the man himself. Ollie is an <a href="http://instagram.com/mrollieali">Instagram wizard</a>, <a href="http://ollieali.com/">freelance photographer</a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/MrOllieAli/videos">occasional YouTuber</a>&nbsp;and bloody talented. Let's meet the man himself-</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><u>What was the first moment you realised you were interested in Photography?</u></span></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: white;">There wasn't a specific moment, it was just picking up a camera and playing around that I realised I was interested in it. Other people commenting on my work online was really encouraging, as well, that inspired me to keep taking photographs. I often find I'm more inspired by work my friends have done, than by famous photographers.&nbsp;</span></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: white;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="background-color: white;"><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">What is it about the art form that you love, specifically?</span></u></div><div style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I love it all, but I think what I love the most is the idea of capturing a moment in time. You can look back at a photograph and remember so much about the time and place it was taken. I also really enjoy the process of editing photos. I can't draw, but I can use photoshop, so that's my creative outlet.</span></div><div style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="background-color: white;"><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">How would you describe your photographical style?</span></u></div><div style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Oh, that's difficult! I don't like to label my style or limit what I take photos of. If I see something I like, I'll take a photograph of it. I like to take photos of anything and then put my own touch on it.</span></div></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16302087822" title="IMG_3043 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3043" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7520/16302087822_90727a4d94_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">What inspires your work? (places, people, instances, specific photographers?)</span></u></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Firstly, I take pictures because I enjoy taking pictures, more than anything. It something I started doing, realised I loved it and that inspires me to continue. Second to that, I'd say seeing other photographers work, especially on Instagram, or photos my friends have taken, that's very inspiring, too.</span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">What is your favourite photograph you have ever taken?</span></u></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Ooh, I've taken so many! I think, when I do take a photograph I really like, then a week or so later, I'll go out on another shoot and take a better one. Or if I do a shoot I'm really passionate about, I'll really enjoy looking through all those photographs. There is one shot, I took of a guy on Oxford Street, it doesn't have much meaning, but I love the photo and his expression. It's always great to go to new places and meet new people on shoots.</span></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><div style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><u>Do you have a favourite photograph that someone else has taken and can you explain what is going on in the photograph, in your minds eye?</u></span></div><div><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><span style="line-height: 18px; white-space: pre-wrap;">I can’t think of much but a photo that stands out to me is <a href="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b4/Sharbat_Gula.jpg">Afghan Girl</a>. It's not that I interpret it much differently to anyone else, I just </span><span style="line-height: 18px; white-space: pre-wrap;">think it's such a strong image. The photographer has captured her emotions so beautifully, it’s as if she’s sat there right in front of you </span><span style="line-height: 18px; white-space: pre-wrap;">expressing everything she feels, all captured through her facial expression. It’s almost like her eyes tell her entire life story. </span><span style="line-height: 18px; white-space: pre-wrap;">Incredible.</span></span></span></div></center><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/16115414168" title="IMG_3033 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3033" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7483/16115414168_d71da182b5_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">What does photography mean to you?</span></u></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">It all links into what I've said already. I love that you can photograph something, and&nbsp;capture&nbsp;it, frame&nbsp;it, and edit it to look the way you want it to look. But someone else may see exactly the same thing and choose to portray it through photography in a completely different way. I love how I can express myself through my work.</span></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: white;">I've always been inspired by the works and life of Ansel Adams. He said '</span><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 18px;">“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.' What does this mean to you?</span></span></u></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">This is a good quote. It ties into a lot of what we've been saying already. I guess with a photograph, it speaks the truth, it can capture poverty, war, etc and the truth is right there. You can build great opinions of things based on photographs.&nbsp;</span></center><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/15680575264" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="IMG_3036 by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img alt="IMG_3036" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7553/15680575264_5a25f01a1b_b.jpg" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Photos of Ollie taken and edited by me.</span></td></tr></tbody></table><center><div style="background-color: white; text-align: start;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><u>Ollie's Photography:</u></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_6ufFjKloGs/VLrYH3s1jHI/AAAAAAAAJQc/ycBmOHofLEA/s1600/fleur.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_6ufFjKloGs/VLrYH3s1jHI/AAAAAAAAJQc/ycBmOHofLEA/s1600/fleur.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-8CoAmATAwDw/VLrZQsVEfWI/AAAAAAAAJQo/hpNFY774gQQ/s1600/fleur.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-8CoAmATAwDw/VLrZQsVEfWI/AAAAAAAAJQo/hpNFY774gQQ/s1600/fleur.jpg" height="318" width="640" /></a></span></div><center><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/92455772@N05/15683759243" title="Oxford street man by cameracontemplation, on Flickr"><img alt="Oxford street man" height="960" src="https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7473/15683759243_b3157fbc9c_b.jpg" width="640" /></a></center><div style="background-color: white; text-align: start;"><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">Thank you to Ollie for answering my questions and letting me take some photographs of him!

The video was from over 20 years ago, but we loved it. So when my family heard Cat's was coming back to London and the West End, myself, Mum, my sister, my Aunt, my cousin Rosie, our Nana and Granddad (who we call Luppy) all purchased tickets for each other as Christmas presents.

The set was a fabulous array of trash that made you feel like a back alley kitty yourself and I especially appreciated the gorgeous fairy-lights which adorned the stage and the stalls, lighting up at opportune moments throughout the musical.&nbsp;</span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></center><center style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The dancing and the sing was second to none, every voice distinctive, with Nicole Scherzinger hitting some incredible high notes with gusto and pulling off the most emotive version of memory, I've ever heard.

Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams</u><span style="line-height: 16.1200008392334px;"> No link for this one, I'm afraid, you'll have to go out and buy the album, but that's okay, because the album is awesome. Although, this is my favourite track off it. It sounds like Summer nights when the dew begins to creep over the grass. It sounds magical and beautiful and slightly like you're on a&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 16.1200008392334px;">trip.. But that's okay.</span></span></span><br /><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><span style="line-height: 16.1200008392334px;"><br /></span></span></span><span style="background-color: white;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><span style="line-height: 16.1200008392334px;"><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaI5JCxOCdw" style="text-decoration: underline;">7.

I've been obsessed with the feature 'Celebrities Read Mean Tweets' where loads of our favourite celebs sit down and candidly read out the mean tweets they've received, I cry with laughter watching it and couldn't believe I hadn't seen a YouTuber recreate it yet. The YouTube comment section is rife with haters and trolls and being a YouTuber, you simply can't afford to take every nasty comment seriously. Smile, and the world smiles with you.

Step up to the podium, please, <a href="http://www.dietchef.co.uk/">Diet Chef</a>. When I initially started looking into ways to lose weight, I needed something I knew would work for me. As someone who does a lot of exercise anyway, that wasn't the issue, my main problems when it comes to food are laziness (after a day of work and University I can't always be bothered to cook), unhealthy cravings and portion control. I'm a great one for falling into the takeaway trap, so I wanted something easy to follow, easy to manage and control, that would sort out my portions for me- and stop me piling my plate high!</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Diet Chef seemed to be the right choice for my lifestyle. They send you your daily meals in one, nice big package- this includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack, which you then add fresh fruit, dairy and veg to accordingly. This means your portions are controlled and you know exactly what you are supposed to be eating- it makes it super easy, even for my tired, university work addled brain to compute! The Diet Chef meals are cooked 'sous vide' which means they don't need to be stored in the fridge or freezer, but are also free of nasty preservatives- nice! This was another plus point for me as I share one fridge freezer with four other hungry students- storing a months worth of food in there was going to be tricky.</span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-rbAIGNqSyx4/VLLLa49FNcI/AAAAAAAAJPI/ZRLzkSdJhiI/s1600/IMG_2991.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-rbAIGNqSyx4/VLLLa49FNcI/AAAAAAAAJPI/ZRLzkSdJhiI/s1600/IMG_2991.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">But, is it expensive? I hear you cry, clutching at your purse strings.. Well, no, asides from the fresh fruit and veg, it's your food shopping DONE for the month, and it works out as on £6.61 per day- and that's about the price of a coffee and cake from Starbucks, and we all know we do that far more often than we should...</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The last point that sealed the deal for Diet Chef and myself, was all that they can offer, after you've hit the pay button. With an online BMI counter, which updates your calorie allowance in accordance to your weight loss, day meal plan ideas and things you can add to your Diet Chef meals to spice them up and a progress tracker, to help you see the results. It all feels very helpful and if I have any queries along the way, I can easily pop over to their Twitter or Facebook and find my answers, there!</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">So, now for my stats at the start of my journey: Weight- 13st 1 1/4 lbs with a BMI of 30.... *gulps* I'm excited to begin this journey and if you'd like to take this journey with me, you can get £10 off your first order with my code: MYAHI@HB.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">Amy x</span><br style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;" /><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/TheCameraLiesBeauty/videos" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Main Channel</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/CameraContemplations" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Vlog Channel</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://twitter.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Twitter</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://instagram.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Instagram</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://the-cameraslying.tumblr.com/" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Tumblr</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/2704469/the-cameras-lying" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Bloglovin'</a><span style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://www.facebook.com/TheCamerasLying" sl-processed="1" style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Facebook</a></span><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">&nbsp;</span></span><br /><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">P.O.

So that's what this post is going to be. This is perhaps for my benefit as much as it is for yours. I like to entertain the idea when I'm old, I'll read back through my blog and reminisce on the 'good times.' But then I said that about my old Bebo page too..</span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_W2PF_ebOJg/VKMgEeZpp1I/AAAAAAAAJO4/MopArFsdOPE/s1600/tumblr_ngwun9l2h41svai1po1_1280.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-_W2PF_ebOJg/VKMgEeZpp1I/AAAAAAAAJO4/MopArFsdOPE/s1600/tumblr_ngwun9l2h41svai1po1_1280.jpg" height="570" width="640" /></span></a></div><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Personal Life</span></u><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Asides from drinking copious amounts of tea and consuming tv shows on Netflix like they were oxygen, I achieved quite a bit in 2014. I passed my second year at University, with a 2.1 no less, and I wasn't the only one surprised by this result. I moved out once and attempted to move in no less than three times to my current residence (third times a charm). I had not <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/02/time-to-talk.html">one</a>, but <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/12/personal-im-blogger-but-im-not-size-8.html">three</a> total meltdowns. We are talking earth shattering screams, £200 last minute flights, trashing my room and gorging on pizza meltdowns. It wasn't pretty, but I'm as tough as old boots, and I'm still here. I partook in the '<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPFC0sMKM4k&amp;list=FLc3gTqbskc_wGl7pFk62hpg&amp;index=5">Happy- We Are From Brighton</a>,' props if you spot me, dancing in an Alice In Wonderland dress.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Travelling Life</span></u><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I played ultimate frisbee in Ireland and Italy (even if the latter was only for a day), and visited the north of the UK for the first time- stopping in Newcastle and Harrogate. I cruised around the Aegean Sea (<a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/09/travel-santorini.html">here</a>, <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/09/outfit-sea-views-fearne-cotton.html">here</a> and <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/09/outfit-captains-mermaid-skirts.html">here</a>), experiencing the white roofs of Santorini, visiting Turkey and being wowed by Istanbul, visiting a harem and of course, falling down the stairs of the&nbsp;amphitheatre in Ephesus. I fell in love with Amsterdam and experienced <i>everything</i>&nbsp;it had to offer, from the nightlife, to the canals, the museums and gallerys, the infamous cafes and red light district and even visiting a peep show- cheeky! Oh, and I <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/03/red-white-blue.html">nearly made it</a> to the USA, but we won't <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/04/trek-america-blog4trek-final.html">talk about that</a>...</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><u><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Blogging Life</span></u><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The Camera's Lying surpassed 2000 on bloglovin and GFC combined.

I used 4 different cameras to take my blog photos, and utilised long suffering house-mates, parents and siblings to help photograph outfits. I got to experience being driven around <a href="http://www.the-cameras-lying.com/2014/06/benefit-citroens-benerace-at.html">Silverstone Race Course by a professional female racer with Benefit</a>.

In time for the new year, I'm turning over a new leaf and pretending I don't care, until I <i>really</i> don't care. I decided to go back to basics for this post- an outfit nearly entirely made up of Primark items.

R. R. Tolkien fan, I've read the books and kept up to date with all the films, so I was excited and saddened to see the final film in The Hobbit trilogy: The Battle of The Five Armies. I knew I was going to see it in cinema, as soon as it came out, but I never expected to be walking down the red (or in this case, green) carpet at the world premiere of the final instalment.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I found out I was going to the premiere just a few hours before I was due to walk the carpet, so my outfit and makeup was a last minute job. I barely had enough time to phone my parents and squeal down the phone in excitement before the premiere was under way. My outfit consisted of a Fearne Cotton for Very dress, and a lot of Primark- yep, I rocked Primark at a world premiere!</span><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-7EFuJbYn3hg/VJmlU494sUI/AAAAAAAAJNk/Q2b0OY80ZJQ/s1600/IMAG1976.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-7EFuJbYn3hg/VJmlU494sUI/AAAAAAAAJNk/Q2b0OY80ZJQ/s1600/IMAG1976.jpg" height="890" width="640" /></span></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif; font-size: small;"><a href="http://www.very.co.uk/fearne-cotton-drop-waist-bird-print-dress/1403414278.prd?searchTerm=fearne-cotton">*Dress: Fearne Cotton for Very</a><br />Shoes: Primark<br />Leather Jaket: Primark<br />Bag: Guess</span></td></tr></tbody></table><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-oEhAh6NQtfc/VJmlNGLHHDI/AAAAAAAAJNU/hjDCJw1PUDI/s1600/Untitled-1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-oEhAh6NQtfc/VJmlNGLHHDI/AAAAAAAAJNU/hjDCJw1PUDI/s1600/Untitled-1.jpg" height="360" width="640" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I walked the carpet with some of the best people I know: Trent, Luke, Lewis, Sam and our managers Talie and Rebecca.Above, you can see our 'Oscar style' selfie. This time around we were allowed our phones, and tweeted our experience with the #OneLastTime. The carpet was green and flanked with Middle Earth scenery and flaming torches, the whole thing felt so exciting, as if we were going on our own unexpected journey.</span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GLCZ1_imkkQ/VJmlWjMihlI/AAAAAAAAJNw/GY7phneIQ-4/s1600/Untitled-3.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GLCZ1_imkkQ/VJmlWjMihlI/AAAAAAAAJNw/GY7phneIQ-4/s1600/Untitled-3.jpg" height="360" width="640" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-B-PzuAqFp_g/VJmlR2s7Z3I/AAAAAAAAJNc/Dt4we2t4m2s/s1600/Untitled-2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-B-PzuAqFp_g/VJmlR2s7Z3I/AAAAAAAAJNc/Dt4we2t4m2s/s1600/Untitled-2.jpg" height="358" width="640" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">As with my previous red carpet experience, it went by in an exciting, surreal flash. <i>Everywhere </i>you turned there was another exciting cast member (my personal highlights included grabbing a selfie with Lewis and Sir Ian Mckellen in the background, and walking past the magic maker, Peter Jackson himself) or fan in the crowd, cos-playing characters. If you'd like to see more, you can watch my vlog of the red carpet, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLwG3VHzXHs">here</a>!</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The film itself was an emotional roller coaster, with laugh out loud moments to heart wrenching scenes, it had it all. The acting was fabulous, and the sets and costumes as always, transported you to Middle Earth with such conviction. There really is no other word to describe the trilogy with, but 'epic!'</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I'd like to thank my manager, Talie, the Premier team and of course Warner Bros for inviting me along to the premiere. I had a magical time, and I have made so many incredible memories.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Amy x</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/TheCameraLiesBeauty/videos" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Main Channel</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/CameraContemplations" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Vlog Channel</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://twitter.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Twitter</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://instagram.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Instagram</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://the-cameraslying.tumblr.com/" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Tumblr</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/2704469/the-cameras-lying" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Bloglovin'</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://www.facebook.com/TheCamerasLying" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Facebook</a></span><span style="background-color: white; color: #333333; font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">&nbsp;</span></div>Amyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04103030492884413474noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5504559646882322903.post-43040378164954478862014-12-06T16:00:00.000+00:002014-12-06T16:00:03.827+00:00Giveaway: Benefit Bozed Powder, MAC Lipstick & Eyeshadows<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6SpSWvzb1kc/VIJVQpRKRVI/AAAAAAAAJMU/54KumPqB06U/s1600/IMAG1921.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6SpSWvzb1kc/VIJVQpRKRVI/AAAAAAAAJMU/54KumPqB06U/s1600/IMAG1921.jpg" height="636" width="640" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-nO7qEGrzKeA/VIJVPtBu74I/AAAAAAAAJMI/EhgS2GjugpY/s1600/IMAG1931.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-nO7qEGrzKeA/VIJVPtBu74I/AAAAAAAAJMI/EhgS2GjugpY/s1600/IMAG1931.jpg" height="522" width="640" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Tis the season for giving and I'm running three giveaway's, currently!

Clothes all over the floor, shirts crumpled, tights pulled on and off, left inside out, discarded and rejected. But the past few weeks that girl has been me.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Today I stayed in, comfortable in my pyjamas and missed a night out and a Christmas meal with some very good friends of mine, purely because I felt embarrassed and self concious in everything I put on. I felt sick at the thought of leaving the house, having people look at me, wondering, if they are judging me for my size, for trying to squeeze my thighs into a pencil skirt. I missed out.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I haven't been very active on my blog of late, purely for the reason the thought of taking photos of myself sickens me to my stomach. I've never been a size 6 model, but I've never looked in the mirror and hated the skin I'm in, up until now.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I feel like my own flesh is a prison, I'm stuck in this body that doesn't look good in a mini skirt, that can't rock a bodycon dress, that arches it's back to try to hide from the world rather than walking tall. It's miserable. For someone who loves clothes and fashion, I can count on one hand the amount of clothing items I wear on a daily basis, these days. My lived in smock dress that 'skims over the chub,' my boyfriend jeans that are so baggy, you can't see the size of my thighs and oversized jumpers that do nothing for me.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The more I loath my body and the way I look, the more I withdraw from the blogging world. Every bloglovin' post seems to jeer at me 'look at this seasons must have item that you won't be able to pull off' and 'look at how confident I am in myself.' I like to torture myself with it, none the less. To look at the models, the skinny bloggers, the naturally petite girls until the tears are running down my face and I inevitably turn to food for comfort and oblivion.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">This post isn't an excuse, nor is it a promise to myself to try harder, to love who I am. Rather, it's is brain vomit, because expressing myself through this space on the internet is what I am best at. I wish I could love myself, unconditionally and unapologetically but for now I can't. So, Amy, I am sorry for that.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Amy x</span><br /><span style="color: black; font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/TheCameraLiesBeauty/videos" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Beauty Channel</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/CameraContemplations" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Vlog Channel</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://twitter.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Twitter</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://instagram.com/heyamyjane" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Instagram</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://the-cameraslying.tumblr.com/" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Tumblr</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/2704469/the-cameras-lying" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Bloglovin'</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">,&nbsp;</span><a href="https://www.facebook.com/TheCamerasLying" sl-processed="1" style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-decoration: none;">Facebook</a><span style="background-color: white; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">&nbsp;</span></span></div>Amyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04103030492884413474noreply@blogger.com10
