As I get older I realise there are many things we take for granted, myself included in this majority. It wasn’t until I was amongst the hustle and bustle of London and its extremely manic city life that I realised I really missed the sound of birds, the smell of freshly cut grass and being able to walk without pressure to keep at the set speed of commuters. I know many people love London life and I can fully understand their reasoning’s, but it just wasn’t for me. So now that I’m out of the city, I find myself completely at peace when I’m somewhere beautiful, and passionate about the fact that I love it so, damn, much.

I’ve been working with Levis on their new project, Live in Levis and I absolutely love the concept. The idea is to showcase how you Live in your Levis, whilst doing something you are truly passionate about, for instance cooking, reading, art.. and in my case, the creative outdoors. I never, ever thought that a time would come when I’d list one of my passions anything to do with outdoor life – walking, looking at beautiful places… but maybe at 26 I’m at the tender ol’ age where I appreciate the outdoors and the beautiful surroundings us humans are blessed with. So, on a recent Saturday I went for a trip and brisk walk, along the seaside. Armed with my (very warm) Levi’s jacket, my Canon 5D and a love for life, I breathed in the fresh seaside air, listened to the sound of swarking seagulls and looked out over a slightly foggy sea. And, you know what? I flamin’ loved it.

I’m sure many of you know already, but I used to (and still do) work in photography.. I’m lucky that a hobby of mine turned into a job and I still get to work on lots of fun freelance projects alongside blogging. When I was a mere teenager I used to wake up at 5am (how… I do not know..) with my Dad and we used to photograph beautiful countryside sunrises. It was by no means glamorous – sitting in muddy marshes with a film camera and one chance to get the photo right, but it’s one of my fondest memories. My Dad even used to have the photos developed onto slides (for the young ones out there, yes, that’s a thing) Whilst I might not get the time to be as creative with photography anymore, having a blog definitely helps and even photographing an outfit is something I enjoy – mix that with a beautiful location and I’m a happy lass.

So, to conclude this post of utter passion… I urge you all to pop on a jumper, some comfortable shoes and go for a walk. Walk anywhere. If you live in London, get on a train to somewhere grassy and walk, listen to the silence and breathe in the air – in a world full of so much technology, social media and goodness knows what else, I’d say it’s nice to just feel free from it all.

Keep an eye out for an upcoming post, featuring some special Levi’s outfit posts!

These are really cool dresses for trendy women. I am sure those models have worn http://byebra.com breast stickers to shape their breasts perfectly. They have some kind of breast stickers. This Dutch brand is really rocking!

You look adorable! I love taking in countryside too, I live near a big field in a small town though i’d like to try and live in London at some point in my life.

I was already planning on doing exactly that this afternoon – heading our for a walk with my camera by myself! My mum’s a photographer too, and I hope that i’ll look back at all our shoots equaly as fondly in 10 years time. Love the jacket too! I need one just like it 🙂
