Rock n Roller

I do like a good challenge and this 50's style shoot was right up my street.  Gala Casino sent me a basic 50's kit to create a 50's style look inspired by the launch of their new game Rock n Roller.  I waited until my visit this weekend to Norbury Manor (with 11 other blogger types, more details on that to come soon!) so I could have a fitting setting for such a fabulous shoot.  Red lippy and black eyeliner formed part of the essentials along with some red glasses, polka dot scarf and a cute whirly lollipop.  Yum!

The beautiful master bedroom and main bathroom of Norbury Manor were absolutely perfect, it is such a gorgeous house and the decor is simply stunning.  Even Alex who hates pink fell in love with the tastefully pink bedroom and of course the chaise lounge... oh to have a bedroom big enough for a chaise lounge! 

I borrowed the outfit and vanity case from Alex and was ready for the fun to begin! Just in case you hadn't realised I am pretty awkward in photos but this shoot was as much fun as it looks, it really does help having someone who (a) knows how to use a camera and (b) knows exactly how you want your pictures framed.  I think the photographer should come and live with me ;)  I am really happy with how the images have turned out, I hope you enjoy them too.

Whenever another blogger takes your photos for you you can guarantee there will be out takes!  I couldn't resist sharing this beautiful roll top tub and of course my stupidity...

A big thank you to Rosie for the photography and Alex for the outfit!
