I am not a massive fan of winter. It's cold, it's icy, and it snows a lot, which as we all surely know about me by now, is my least favourite thing ever. What I do love though, is winter fashion. Cosy layers, scarfs, cute gloves, wool and faux fur everywhere - as much as it's annoying to have to remove 1 billion layers every time I go indoors, you have to admit, it's a cute time for layering. So when my good friend Leigh-Anne of Leigh-Anne Peach Photography (flickr - twitter - facebook) asked me to trek up to the local woods and help her out with some photography practice, I jumped at the idea. I'm still very much a beginner at the whole photography thing, so when I have somebody as awesome as her willing to help me out with some outfit photos, I can't really say no. Yay for artistic friends!

I figured a Sunday afternoon stroll in the park called for fairly neutral makeup, so I kept things simple with just a touch of eyeliner and neutral colours. This is actually the Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner that I last spoke about in this post, and honestly, my opinion remains more or less the same. It's gorgeously dark and creamy, but just a little too soft and difficult to apply. Maybe there's a knack to it that I just don't have, but I'm not convinced.
For my lips I decided on Soap and Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme-Plump, in the colour Pink Out Loud. It tingles and plumps and is a really good neutral colour, and it's great to just throw on in a hurry.

'...What's a birch again?'
I'm not really one for nature in general (total city girl, through and through I'm afraid!) but it was a really gorgeous day and I'm really happy with how these outfit photos turned out. I only hope that Leigh-Anne managed to get some decent shots without me being dumb in...

I hope you enjoyed this post - I'm really going to put more effort into my blog photography this year, so I would love some feedback on this post if you fancied leaving me some below. Do you typically like to see OOTD photos/posts? Hope you're having a wonderful day whatever you're doing!
