Epiduo Gel Review - Acne Treatment

Epiduo acne fighting rating: 4/5 (some side effect drawbacks)

I hide it as best I can but the truth is I've had relatively bad skin since I was about 16. When everyone else was growing out of the hormone induced pizza face party that is puberty, my peaches and cream, blemish free skin decided to turn on me. Everyone had always commented on how nice my skin  was throughout school, but when I finally started sixth form after a long summer, the compliments stopped....

Behind the scenes | Monochrome Me In a colourful London

I hope you enjoyed watching my first ever behind the scenes video! I felt that the amazing shoot location couldn't be done justice had I not whipped out my go pro for a 360 video for you all to enjoy...the graffiti is cool, sorry about my awkward self...(forgive me, it's so weird seeing yourself on video, eek!)

Shoot Location: Hackney, East London
Music: The Maccaabees - 'Marks To Prove It'

Monochrome Me In A Colourful London

East London has always been my favourite part of London, I especially love it as a shooting location. There are endless side roads and alleys with progressive, seriously cool street art sprawled along their walls, just waiting to be discovered. There's always something new to see it's like a gift that just keeps giving! I've lived in London all my life and studied in the core of East London for years and still every time I find myself there I take a turn down a street I've never been down before and uncover something fantastic! Whether it be a niche little shop, yet another hipster food market or more often than not some truly inspiring street art.

This day was no different, apart from the fact we encountered all three hidden gems! My boyfriend and I stuffed our faces on steamed buns from Bao and pizza from Pizza's Don't Cry (no, I don't get it either, but who are we to argue with hipsters?) all located in Netil Food Market in Hackney. As you might imagine, our stomachs were a little full after such a combo, (I hold my hands up, it was entirely my fault, I couldn't decide which I wanted so got both! -_- ) so we went for a little ramble and came across the coolest space to take a few shots for my blog. It was basically some off road parking around the back of some houses, the last place you'd expect to find such edgy wall art! It worked out really rather well finding a shoot location so off the beaten track, it meant there was nobody around to throw me off my 'posing' game. (which is really, really bad at the best of times let alone when I have an audience!)

I'm glad I went for a simple monotone look, it wasn't purposeful but it allowed the scenery to do the talking this time.

I will follow this blogpost with a short video giving you all a closer look at the shoot location. (I had to make use of my gopro SOMEHOW and it doesn't look like I'm going to be doing any extreme sports anytime soon...)
