Beaches, bonfires and besties











You all know by now how much I love the beach, right? I just wish I lived in a hot climate where the beach was an exotic paradise everyday of the year, but alas! I live in England, and we all know just how exotic England is...

As a somebody who was bedbound for years, I always appreciate every single day I am able to leave my bed, let alone my house! You always do appreciate things more once you've seen what it is like to go without. This day was one that was even more appreciated because it was a perfect afternoon with perfect company and perfect surroundings, and it was 100% worth the pain and severe sickness that followed. Jake and Charlie, thank you for looking after me and giving me such a special day <3

The beach we were on is actually a nudist beach. Luckily for you no naked people got in the background of any photos, but we just like going there because it's so quiet and we can do whatever we want there - like get naked! Not that we did, just in case you were wondering - you bunch of pervs ;)

It's actually the beach we shot M.E: The Visual Campaign at back in April, but it didn't rain on us this time, thank goodness! It's quite funny actually because Jake and Charlie were my dream team behind the visual campaign, so it must be our lucky beach!


Where do you and your friends like to hangout on a sunny day?

  9. You showed us a wonderful time with your photos. I love it when you can get up and out and to the beach in particular. It's so sad that you have to pay a price each time.

    1. Thank you Inger - so nice of you to stop by! I'd rather have a lovely time and pay the price than not have a lovely time at all though. I'm so glad you liked this post xx

  10. What wonderful artistic photos H-E!! The one of sky/ocean/land is great!! I like compositions with '3' visuals in them.
    Lucky you are to have friends that allow you to be you.....and that they look after you too! Looks like a good time was had. I used to love going to a nude beach when I was much much younger.....so much freedom and very 'healthy' respectful feeling and appreciation for ones body.
    You are an 'old soul' H-E.......and I say that in a most respectful way. I think we could be 'kindred spirits' quite easily. Happy you enjoyed David Bowie this morning on my post.
    have a good week and thanks for sharing this day at the beach.....looked like fun and very relaxing.

  23. Love your blog! Will follow you now once I found it❤️ I live by the sea at the west coast of Sweden, and since I've been more ill (severe ME since -12, but been moderatly sick for 40 yrs, diagnosed to late, one yr ago) I've managed to snorkel and freedive dispite being bedbound through the winters. It's such a freedom to be in the salty water and be able to move. When I'm under water my ME is much better due to the divine reflex, it's like having vacation from the illness. But back on land I'm stuck to my wheelchair. I have some photos on my blog from our favourite diving place on an island outside the city ❤️

  24. I mean the dive reflex of course!😄 But it feels divine!

  30. Beautiful photos. Beautiful you and friends! I know what you mean about the beach. I've mostly lived near the shore but never right on the beach as I do now. Also mostly lived in warm, sunny climates. Before sunrise this morning, I opened my bedroom window, got back into bed, and listened to the surf while my room filled with the fragrance of night-blooming jasmine. Heaven!

    1. Thank you! That sounds so perfect. We catch the sunrise here on our coast, it's such a beautiful sight and makes early morning wake up calls much better!

  33. Aww, this looks like such a fun day! The rocky beach looks so beautiful, but I'm sure it would have been nice to have real sand to lay on. Also, I love your top! I've been kind of obsessed with buffalo skull designs lately.

  40. Hayley, I absolutely LOVE your photos! Very creative, and you are just gorgeous ;) I'm glad you got to step away from home to get some fresh air.

    You and I would be two peas in a pod if we could live somewhere exotic! I'm stuck in the rainy city of Vancouver BC. We get 3 months of awesome warm weather, and after that? It rains!
