Burr It's Cold In Here!

As some of you may know by now, I having taking some time out of education after just under two years of studying at university, found what I love to do which I would like to call 'creative direction' - basically styling, promotion, marketing and lots of other stuff rolled into one. 

Within the last year I have had an educational and fashion industry tasting experience working with Eun Jeong. I have learnt what not to do and what to do, the ins and outs, but I have not learnt everything - but I have learnt what I want to do.

I am retaking the journey of applying to university which this time round I am much more prepared for. With this I decided to do a shoot to freshen up my portfolio. I have been doing lots of sketching and illustrations. I am really finding my creative flair again, being more fluid and free with what all my creativeness.

I am planning to create a mini portfolio which i can bring around with me to interviews for internships and universities and other such things which they can keep and make them remember me. Hopefully this will work in my favour. 

Anyway, these are a few backstage shots taken by Lara. Our lovely model Sooanne was absolutely amazing, she is so beautiful, sang us lots of songs like a little jukebox and acted like an angel even though it was absolutely freezing and was happy to do a shot in the snow on rooftop!Thank you to Gabi Torres the photographer on this shoot and Audrey for her magic make up hands. 

I can't wait to see the final photographs and show you guys!

Vogue vs. Vogue


This a part of a collection of pieces which I found while browsing the net. It is all the 2010 editions of Vogue from their respective countries. I think it is actually amazing, a piece of artwork - which magazine are in their own right. Maybe I am not a 100% Vogue lover - I find it slightly pretentious and I am an Elle girl at heart, but I would love to have these hanging round my room. For more click the link.

Make Up & Kell..

As some of you may know - I am a fan of MTV's 'The City'. I think it is an amazing insight into the world of fashion - okay maybe not the world of fashion, but it is my reality fix. You love Whitney, but can't stand Olivia, yet you love both their fashion styles. Never the less one person you really truly respect is Kelly Cutrone. Originally us reality show lovers met her on the MTV's 'The Hills' way back when Miss LC was still in the show, but that's another story.

Kelly Cutrone has become not just known to those within the fashion industry, but also to those not within and believe me she is truly an amazing woman. She has her own Public Relations company Peoples Revolution and recently her own real reality show "Kell On Earth', as well as being a single mother to her beautiful daughter. A must read for ladies and gents who want an insight into not just fashion, but life, you must read her New York Times best seller 'If You Have To Cry Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Taught You'. It is a very interesting journey Ms.Cutrone has been on, ups and downs. She has given me inspiration to get off my ass and don't follow the route that society has put me on. Her book has made me think twice about my decisions and why I am doing it. As some of you may known about my small career goal change, her book helped me on with that. 

I had the lucky honor to meet her during her short visit to London. She tweeted that she was going to be in London for one day and doing a book signing at Illamasqua, an amazing make up brand which celebrates being different and a statement of self-ownership and self expression. Of course I was down there faster than you know.

She gave a talk of thanks for all coming down and you could tell she really appreciated people coming. The fact that all the books there sold out within 30 minutes tells you something. A surreal experience meeting her, at one point I nearly had to go outside and cry!

Illamasqua are an amazing brand and they put the fun back into make up. As woman (and some men) we forget how fun it is to dress up and being someone or something else for a day, a night or a week. Something that in today's society we have all forgotten, until Halloween comes round. If I had more time I would of love to have a play round in their make up, I may just pop back there soon. Just so you know they are on Beak Street, London W1 just at the end of Carnaby Street.

All in all, girls and guys read this book - you may not like all of it, but you will love some of it, but it will make you think. 

I just wanted to make you guys aware that all the proceeds from the event went to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. In 2007, 20 year old Sophie and her boyfriend were kicked, stamped on and left unconscious for being on thing - looking different. Sadly, Sophie died later due to her injuries. 

In tribute to Sophie, her family made ' The Sophie Lancaster Foundation' which helped young people to be aware of the tolerance to violence against uniqueness. Illamasqua have created the Sophie Eye Pencil and Sophie Wristband which is available from their online store. Make a donation guys!

Burrito & Ballet

Forget Friday nights doing the nightclubs, the classiest of ladies hang out at Ballet. No, this isn't some new nightclub called 'Ballet', but really Friday nights at Frame in Shoreditch, where you can dance the night away like you're in the Nutcracker - well you can attempt at least. Frame invited us bloggers for a little dance and a little DIY.

Sadly, I got lost and missed the dance class - maybe a good thing, I may of injured a few girls if I was there. I got there just in time to customise my very own ballet pumps! There were so many trimmings, buttons and beads that really I didn't know where to start. Shini from Park & Cube made a cute couple, and Kit from StyleSlicker made an amazing piece! After all the hard work, I directed the girls to my favourite Brick Lane restaurant, Loco Mojitos, which went down well with all the ladies. 

Thank you for Shini of Park & Cube for the invite and to Geneva of A Pair and a Spare, Kit of Style Slicker, Lucy of Snippets of Shiny Thoughts, Carrie of Wish Wish Wish, Andrea and Pip from Robinson Pfeffer and finally Jo from Frame for an amazing Mexican and Ballet filled evening.

Dinner soon girls, just don't forget your ballet pumps! Also, Thanks to Shini for the first and last image, true photographer right there!

Apologies for the no shoes in the first picture. I had been walking in these babies all day, it was a long day and I think I took this at about midnight, so the face wasn't looking photo ready!
