Davis Designs

This shoot made me feel an overwhelming sense of Girl Power. 
First off is Nicole, you might recognise her from the blog I posted on Monday about her lovely jewellery. These images were made to promote her Davis Designs line of upscale or costume jewellery. She is such a creative and talented person and cares about the environment enough to up-cycle old plastic into awesome art you can wear! 
Lee is Nicole's best friend and made a new and improved way to make water taste better and be better for you and the environment! Little tea bag-like filters which do something similar to what Britta Filers do but you can use them in your existing bottle and save the plastic! It blew my mind to know someone so young has made such an awesome thing. 
Raina is a Mermaid. She uses her teaching background and amazing breath holding skills to teach children the importance of looking after our environment at birthday parties and fundraisers. She is a very inspirational woman to have overcome everything that life throws at her and we all loved to be able to say 'There's a mermaid in the basement'!
And last but not least, Bryana Doyscher is an amazing make-up artist and even from just from something simply described by us went over and above our expectations.

Fan-Plastic Eco Accessories

The extremely talented Nicole of Fan-Plastic Eco Accessories and Davis Designs (See follow-up blog post on Thursday) and I got together for a shoot to get some shots of her wonderful jewellery made from recycled plastics like laundry detergent bottles! I love the amazing colours that she gets out of the plastic which comes of course with a lot of creativity and patience. I still remember the burns I got from the jewellery class I took at NSCAD, so always have a ton of respect for jewellery artists!
All of these designs are available in her Etsy shop and you can follow her on facebook!

Makeup Artist: Bryana Doyscher
Models: Manon and Nicole (designer)

Diana Baby

A little while back I did a post about a new Lomography camera I was excited about, the Fisheye baby which is reviving 110 film. I have some in the post on thier way to me right now and I'm now looking forward to getting my hands on a Diana Baby to try it out. I'm thinking I'm going to eventually have to buy one as well because, how cute will it look sitting next to my Diana F+ and Diana mini. You can even get 2 different lenses for it!
