I was incredulous. The account relayed to me of a conversation with a friend with whom I had once worked had me flabbergasted.

Consumers consistently tell us that brands should provide clearer messaging from the supermarket shelf outwards, rather than relying on marketing to drive sales. I fully agree and believe many brands simply aren't doing enough to capture consumer imagination where it matters most - in store.

Negative comments. We all get them. Not many of us enjoy them, but the majority of us can take the rough with the smooth. However, there is always that one statement (the straw that breaks the camel's back, if you will) that forces us to snap. To respond. To cause an issue. But what makes us do this? And why can't we take a step back, a deep breath, and realise that it's not that big a deal?

Might we be missing the point? Some people in politics like to think of the public as being a collection of individuals, responsible for their own future. Paradoxically, those same people like to tell us, despite what the vast majority of us are feeling, that we're 'all in this together'.

Have we only achieved something when we have children and have a ring (metaphorical) on our finger? I don't just ask this as a woman, I mean this for guys as well because do you feel pressure to marry and settle down and have kids? Do you even want to? Is it wrong if you don't?

For football fans of a certain age who were brought up believing FA Cup Final day to be the height of human existence, it wasn't just about the game, it was about the 'build-up'... The same can be said for award ceremonies. The Oscars are the epitome of the build-up, and also the build-down. The chat, the TV shows, the red carpet and the event itself.

There are loads of reasons why having an engagement photo shoot is an excellent idea but the main one is FEAR or the removal of it. Many people are apprehensive about having their photograph taken by a professional photographer for one reason and one reason alone: fear of the unknown. They don't know what to expect.
