Love Letter – Sustainable Home Brands

Happy July and Hello to some Sustainable Home Brands

I’ve included some sustainable home brands in this newsletter I hope you don’t mind. Wow, I can’t believe we’re into the second half of 2020 already. I guess time flies when there’s a global pandemic, huh? July is looking to be a much more positive month than what June was, as it seems like I’m going to be moving next week! Excited would be an understatement, although I’m not excited to go through all of the props I’ve accumulated over the years. Yeah, I don’t even want to think about how many there are up in the attic. It’s been such a long process that I can’t believe it’s almost over. I don’t think it’s sunk in just yet! I haven’t been focussing a lot on fashion this week, so this week’s hot list will be dedicated to furnishings, sustainable home brands and decor instead of fashion. But don’t worry, there will still be books! Bee x P.S. July means another Create with Bee and this month it’s flower portraits. Join us here its absolutely free.

 What I’ve Been up to This Week

girls pushing car in the rain I’ve been doing a lot of planning of content this week. I want to get the rest of my July content taken before I move out so I’m not trying to take photos and settle into a house at the same time. I don’t think my brain could take that! I tend to post around 3 times a week, so I’ll need to take around 12 photos as well as finish off packing. Man, this is going to be a busy couple of weeks for me isn’t it? Here are some articles I wrote this week. WHY BILL BENSLEY IS BETTER THAN WALT DISNEY CORONA -HOW WILL INFLUENCE CHANGE? FLOWER PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY – A GUIDE How was your week? Bee x

An Editing Tip from Bee

Girl against a pink background So, this tip maybe a little too specific for some people but is worth noting if your skin has pink/red undertones! So my mum has a pink wall that I sometimes shoot against to get a pink backdrop. The only issue is that in editing and using my presets, a lot of the pink registers as orange (no idea why, but this is common in Lightroom. Green can also sometimes register as red. It’s annoying, but hey.) Therefore, when I want to adjust the pink of the background in Lightroom, my skin also adjusts and I end up blending into the wall, which isn’t a good look. To get around this, I used the adjustment brush. I’ll adjust the pink background to my liking, which often involves making it appear more pink by adjusting the tint. Once I’m happy with the background colour, I’ll then go in with the adjustment brush and paint over my skin. To counteract the pinkness, you’ll want to adjust the tint to make it green. Sometimes, The tint ends up being as green as it can get in order for my skin to look natural, rather than extremely sunburnt. It’s a bit of a fiddly process, but it works!

Bee Good: A Brand that is Doing Good Things

Touch of Vintage Store

Touch of Vintage Home – Obe of the sustainable home brands

Not only is buying vintage a more sustainable option, but it can also often be cheaper and you can find some truly unique pieces! Touch of Vintage is an Etsy store that sells gorgeous vintage pieces, from decor to glassware. The business is also black-owned. I definitely have my eye on a few pieces.

Sustainable Home Brands

a Vase with a face on Perryn Ryan Prints You’ll soon come to realise that I’m a huge lover of art and prints – I want a whole gallery wall in my future office! love Perryn’s artwork, my favourite being her ‘Sisters’ print and her ‘Self (Be Sweet)’ print. Stoneware Vase With Face Yes, I do need this vase in my life, thank you very much! I love vases as decoration, especially unusual ones. I’m a huge believer in that you can never have too many vases – as it’s more room for pretty flowers in your home! Audrey Krako Prints Yep. More prints. I want to live inside Audrey’s photography, each photo is a perfect ‘Miami Beach Wes Anderson’ type setting and is totally up my street! Vivian Cocktail Chair I saw my friend @alexandratealeaf with the pink version of this chair and I immediately fell in love. If I could, I would get on in every single colour. Origami Style Eagle Wall Decoration I love Rockett St. George. If I could furnish my home entirely with their stuff, I would. Each piece is gorgeous and I know I’m going to have their ornaments littered around my home. If you have any more sustainable home brands I’d love to hear about them.

Books

Cover of Don't Touch My Hair These links are affiliate links  How To Talk To Your Cat About Gun Saftey My boyfriend got me this book for our anniversary and I can’t stop thinking about it. On the Road My Dad was talking to me about how much he enjoyed this book, then one of my good friend’s Hannah posted about how she was reading this on her story. It felt like a sign. Don’t Touch My Hair  I’ve heard so many great things about this book and I’m eagerly awaiting for it to come back in stock! I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream I found this book on a Buzzfeed list (I know, I’m sorry) and for some reason this one really intrigued me. It’s been described as really unsettling, so I guess we shall see how I get on! Convenience Store Woman I’ve had this book for a while but just haven’t picked it up yet. I think reading shorter stories right now could be pretty good for me as I’ll be super busy! Thanks for Reading! I hope you all are having a brilliant start to July! With Love, Bee xo
