It Begins!

I’ve done it! I’ve launched my Kickstarter! There are now 59 days remaining to get it fully funded!

Please check it out and share if you can. Any pledges would be greatly appreciated. I have four different reward levels to choose from and the money doesn’t get taken unless the project is fully funded by the end of the time limit (59 days remaining).

I’ll be posting regular updates when I can and will likely be spamming about this ever so slightly whilst the project is ongoing.

So pretty please, support if you can or share ^_^

17.5.18 – Life Update

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Life getting in the way of all the fun things I want to be doing. Well maybe not all of them.

I was away to a LARP last weekend which was lots of fun. If you’ve never heard of LARP before it stands for Live Action Role Play and generally speaking it’s just a more expensive grown up version of playing pretend haha. It’s really good fun though and I recommend giving it a go if you ever get the chance. However the not so fun side to my weekend was that I was in a ridiculous amount of pain.

Starting from a dull ache on Wednesday (9.5.18) and increasing to full on agony in the left side of my jaw which lead to me being unable to eat without crying and taking a dangerous amount of painkillers. But I got home and went to the dentist and they pulled out the offending tooth there and then. Which caught me by surprise. It left me a little shaken but the difference is unbelievable. Virtually no pain (other than the hole where my tooth was haha). You can see the super flattering post tooth removal selfie at the bottom of this post.

Had a photo shoot on the Thursday as well which was difficult whilst in pain but I’ll write a separate blog post on that 🙂

My mum is also visiting for the next week or so. So I’ll likely be a bit busy spending time with family for the next week. Not to worry though I’ll be sure to get a new photo set sorted and published asap 😀

Crowdfunding and #MerMay – 4.5.18

Lately I’ve been considering crowdfunding.

Personally I’m all for people coming together to accomplish a goal and bring something new into the world. It’s exciting and makes me feel like I’m a part of something.

But I think some people aren’t super fond of it and that’s fair enough. We don’t all have to like the same things or whatever.

The reason it’s been on my mind is that I’m thinking about using Kickstarter to raise funds to cover a specific photo shoot I want to do. And if it’s successful then maybe I would continue to use Kickstarter to fund special projects. I’m just concerned people might respond negatively to me using Kickstarter :/

So this is just a little ramble to express my current thoughts and hopefully hear some of yours?


On a more fun note, here’s a little MerMay update!

It’s day 4 which means it’s all about the sparkle – which is perfect when you have a night out on the same day. Unfortunately you’ll have to wait to see what today’s look is. For now you’ll just have to settle for the past 3 days 😀

Day 1: Moon


Day 2: Queen

Day 3: Shells

Having great fun with #MerMay so far. What do you lovelies think?

Lil Blue Attempts #MerMay

So as some of you may be aware certain months/events can be accompanied by specific art challenges. One of these challenges that takes place during the month of May is “#MerMay”. What’s MerMay? Well it’s an entire month dedicated to all things mermaid! Usually this is just an art kind of thing and results in some gorgeous pictures, however I figured I’d have a go at making it a daily photo challenge. So for the month of May I’ll be attempting to post selfies/photos that are prompted by the #MerMay challenge.

I’ve put together my own prompt list, inspired by the ones I found via a quick Google search and now all that’s left is to get started! So wish me luck and follow along. I’ll be posting daily photos on my Patreon, Instagram and Facebook (links at the bottom) and feel free to join in the fun.
