Disconnect & Reconnect – a year long project by Sue Tebble.

January the 2nd saw Sue Tebble take her first shot of the beautiful sunset at Sea Pauling, we re-posted this photo on our Instagram (see first photo below) and this inspired Sue to get herself a good camera and spend the rest of the year taking sunset shots. She used this project to reconnect with nature and feel more at peace, having suffered with seasonal depression for many years. This year she was determined not to go to the Drs. but to use the beauty of nature to heal instead. Each photo has the date, time of sunset and a brief description of how she was feeling that day and how nature was helping.
One in four of us suffer mental health problems at some point in our lives and Sue hopes this project will go some way to shifting the stigma related to it. She also runs a music group called Mind The Gap which uses music to promote well being.
Sue uses no editing software on her photos and has published them as a calendar to go on sale on October 10th, which is World Mental Health Awareness Day. 
This stunning calendar would make fabulous gifts for all the Norfolkians who love our county, and let's face it that's all of us!

Dr. Martens Marble Collection

I was invited to style an item from the Dr. Martens new marble collection, if you haven't already noticed marble is everywhere right now, from fashion to home wares to nails. Marble is so chic and I've recently been to the capitol of chic, Paris, so I wanted to create an outfit that reflected this. Yesterday was a scorcher so I went with a crisp white shirt (never out of fashion as far as I'm concerned) black shorts and white sandals. If you know me you know I'm usually always in black with a hint of white so this was a nice change and I felt a little St.Tropez dahling! Ray Bans finished the look and a gold necklace to accent the rims. I got lots of compliments on the bag throughout the day and it's great quality as you'd expect from DM's, this bag is very versatile and I think we'll become great friends!

Massive thanks to Kerry Curl for the photography and the laughs.

All Bar One

Amber and I were invited to sample the new menu at the newly renovated All Bar One, Norwich. We booked a table for Friday at 7.30pm, this seemed like a good time to see the venue in action, lots of after works drinks and dates happening for us to gawp on whilst we perused the menu. We went straight into he summer cocktail menu for a daiquiri and a mojito (both good), we both ordered a vege burger with different toppings, there was a good variety to pick from. The cocktails went down very nicely so we ordered a pot of rhubarb and custard Collins...erm amazing!! the food arrived and the burgers which were good as were the sweet potato fries. Amber went for a slated caramel cheesecake for dessert, I had to try too, you know, its about teamwork. All in all we had a great evening, the decor is stunning, the staff are very helpful and we enjoyed the buzz of a warm summer night in the city.
(excuse the bad photos I forgot my camera)
