Kyra

Kyra’s favourite part of any day is going to the park. She adores playing and running around and chasing her ball, so my favourite time to take photos of her is when she’s playing – you can always just see the pure joy and excitement on her face!

Look how gorgeous this girl is when she’s happy! Ok, she’s always gorgeous but especially when she’s happy and having fun.

She’s especially cute when she jumps up in the air to try and catch her ball – she would do ANYTHING for her ball. She loves it!

Sometimes Kyra will chase the ball for so long that she gets tired but she won’t know when to stop, so we have to get her to calm down and tell her to catch her breathe for a couple of minutes. And then she gives us this face, like ‘pleaseeeeee throw the ball again!’

And then she’s back to running again!

Starfire-Inspired Makeup

As part of a new mini-series on my channel in the run up to Halloween, I decided to do a series of makeup videos inspired by some of my favourite DC characters. They’re not costume looks but slightly more wearable looks inspired by certain aspects of the character’s outfit / look. First up is Starfire – a super strong, former-slave, now-warrior princess from Tamaran who’s been a member of the Teen Titans, the Justice League (for a short time) and teamed up with Red Hood and his little band of Outlaws!

In the video, as well as doing my makeup, I discuss why I love Starfire so much, some of my favourite moments from the comics and my first impressions of the new Teen Titans TV series.
