Whoever suggested that playing with food was a bad thing was obviously lacking in the creativity department.

  2. fun shoot! great blog. love all the photos

  3. This looks so fun! Thanks for inspiring, will have to do something like that. :)

    And thanks for your sweet comment. i think that you can definitely go to that movie, I went with friend that really doesn't like horror movies, but it was ok for her. Yeah, there where few times when she closed her eyes, but it wasn't anything horrible. I think you should like it, but maybe read the book first.
    And about that magazine - it comes out only in my home country.

  6. Had a smile on my face looking through these photos! These are so adorable.
    Love your blog and am now following :)

  7. I love your "playing with your food" idea. It's so fun and creative. It makes me hungry and intrigued at how the vibrancy of the colours work.

    Awesome photos!

  8. your blog is a treat!

    take a peek. my new blog

    if you like follow on bloglovin! and i shall do the same

  9. I love the radishes in the hair, I can't believe I never thought of it before. People put flowers in their hair so why not bananas, radishes and carrots - it makes sense to me :)
    P.S. the eye make-up is divine!

  10. I'm too hungry to look at this!

  11. Oh that's SUCH a great idea! Not only does it give a whole new meaning to the concept of a 'fascinator', it's completely dual purpose: wear first, then eat when hungry. What fun.

  12. Such a 'delicious' idea for a shoot. Nice work!

  13. cool. reminds me of March Into Merivale event where the models wore fruit on themselves
