Bloggers at work

A couple of weeks ago I met a new blogger. I love meeting new bloggers. You always have so much to discuss with one another, and for that reason they feel like new friends very quickly. The lovely Jo, from The Only Place, had announced that she was doing a collection of photos of bloggers at work, capturing the spaces and places where blogging happens, as well as the faces of those of us who lay claim to the title of 'blogger'.
She kindly agreed to include me in her series, and trekked up to North London one sunny Saturday to take some photos. We nattered for ages, drank copious amounts of tea, and then we got down to the actual photography business. Jo took a range of photos of me in various spots around my flat - which, we have since agreed, came out of this photo-shoot looking like an interiors all-star.

You can check out Jo's series over here on her blog. Jo was a super photographer, who instantly put me at ease, and lined up shot after shot without it getting boring. She's also a great person to have chat with about blogging and London and many other things, so I hugely enjoyed getting to meet Jo as much as getting to see the photographs she produced! If you are a blogger who fancies being involved, drop Jo a line and invite her to come take some photos of the space in which you blog...she's currently after some more blogging models so do get in touch if you'd be up for it.

  1. Lovely idea and pics. Your flat does actually look like something out of ST Style magazine. And on that note, I'm off to tidy mine...

    1. Ah, thanks, Jo!

      Obviously I didn't let any photos capture the state of my kitchen/bathroom...just showed off the pretty bits. It's like the house equivalent of airbrushing or flattering lighting...

  2. I loved the shoot, Flora. Your apartment is beautiful and I love your painted tootsies (which polish, which shade?) It sounds like meeting the friendly Jo was another great blogging experience to add to the bag : ) xx

    1. Thanks, Lou! Think the varnish is a little Max Factor one - they do teeny travel-sized bottles which are great for avoiding ending up with loads of half-used bottles. (I believe that shade is called Red Carpet Glam...well obviously!) It was a real delight to meet Jo - bloggers are the best!

    1. Thanks, Muriel! I'm not quite the seasoned cover girl you are, though...maybe I need some more practice?
