Filling in The Blanks, Or NOT

Hello, Gad this feels WEIRD. Haven't put a finger to the keyboard like this in what seems to be a freaking an AGE. But I guess I missed loading off some of my thoughts and thinkings on all of you.

I don't really know how to even start filling in the blanks of the last 5 months, So I guess I won't. Let's start from the here and now shall we? I'm writing to you from Dubai. Beautiful-Beautiful Dubai. Why? Perks of the job. Meetings, Shoots, Sun and Dust Called on La for a week long trip to the sand pit. & So Far so Good.. 

I'm actually in AWE of how beautiful this place is. Its pretty unbelievable. Then of course, after a long day's shooting.. I loose track of how lucky I really am and start thinking WHAT THU HELL IS THE POINT IN ALL OF THIS MAN.?!? I think it actually hit me whilst I was still dressed head to toe in some of my favourite designers such as YSL, Armani and DVF (to add insult to injury of my wild thoughts) Why are girls so mental? No but really? Tiredness + too much time to over analyse + 45 degree heat obviously DON'T mix well with me. After my little episode, it did make me think, my views on STUFF AND THINGS have totally changed, like yeah what girl doesn't like a new mac lipstick (& the rest) Louis Vuitton Bag & Christian Louboutin, red souled, beautiful shoes.. But how important, in the grand scheme of things are they? I guess with the outstanding some of 19 years under my belt i'm suddenly appreciating the littler things in life, and actually how they same to be the big important things these days. 


Peace, Love & Stuff just Being STUFF

London Fashion Week A/W 2012

So the Big Smoke and I meet again.. & This time i'm much less anxious than my 1st Fashion Week, Although this time round i'm walking in bigger shows, it's still Fashion Week, It's still terrifying and probably when I feel at my most venerable at work. I don't look at my job with false hopes and dreams, with modelling I am a total realist. I'm 5.7', it's really not tall enough for the requirements of modelling. But, I'm lucky that my limbs are out of proportion and I photograph like a giant, but when it comes to walking on a catwalk, it becomes very apparent that I am in fact a 'SHORTAAAYY' Last fashion week, before the show, I was just like 'What the hell am I doing here' but after walking in not only the 1 expected show but in fact all 6 of them that day, faith was restored in my fight against not being tall enough, further to that the organisers even invited me back to walk in their bigger shows in Fashion week in February, praising me on my walk. DOING IT FOR THE SHORTIES. So here I am, It's February and i'm back.

Yes, getting wiggy with it. Bringing Lou Clave's trend to fashion week. I freaking love getting wiggy with it. No back combing involved always winning.

Obscure Couture's collection was by far their best yet, I was literary in AWE of every single last piece. These two women are not only essentially my boss's but two people I trust more than anything or anyone. Its rare to find people you treasure in your life in this industry and I frankly feel so privileged and better off in myself for meeting them. They truly have my back and for that I love them eternally. P.S It's Official. La is Obscure Couture's Muse.

After the show, the whole team partied it up in my new favourite place to be in London, Jalouse. if you've not been. GET YOUR ASS THERE! Man I have the best night in such a long time. & I really was blessed with the gift of the gab. Thanks to Ms Chloe Frankie Peers for hooking us up with an unforgettable night.

I'm glad to be in London, I feel focused and energised to SMASH it again.
Stay tuned, This year is going to be B.I.G
Also, Everyone reading this who had supported me & pushed me to this point.

I Heard You Like The Bad Girls Honey

Happy Valentines Bitches' 

V Day is really a massive facade right? a Day where people are forced to unwillingly buy, gifts, cards and flowers, Mostly the predictable red rose if you are unimaginative or your significant other has REALLY bad taste in the flower department. We say 'I Love You' But do you REALLY Love them? Do you REALLY want to say it? Or is it all forced bullshit. I've said Love You to Boys since I was in primary 2 personally. But. I am a self admittedly a hopeless romantic, through and through. So does the fact I KNOW that the 14th of February is a commercially insisted day of fake-love? Does that comfort me? Being that I am alone without the lies and rubbish? The answer, HELL NO.

Not that as women Logic comes into it on days like this but I really don't know why it is exactly that this day out of every other day we especially feel the need to beat ourselves up and get so blue over the relationship status - Single. Every other day I know I would rather feel a little lonely but Happy in myself instead of in a Relationship that wasn't right just to pass the time or ease the pain of being alone. But today is like no other, I feel sad and lonely & on top of that, I love food, I love every type of food - good for you but mostly bad. A Moment on the Lips a lifetime on the Hips is a classic I constantly ignore, because for that moment - it's all worth it. I'm also not the type of person that doesn't find comfort in food, when I'm down there is nothing that sounds better to me than Macdonalds followed by BK then dominoes and 6 tubs of Ben & Jerry's but, instead of following this meal plan today I am comforting myself with salad and all things healthy in preparation of London Fashion Week in 3 teeny tiny days time.

Truly FML
All Sympathy or Last Min Valentines WELCOME.

Yours Truly

Well, I brought in 2012 in STYLE. I was in Pairs with Amazing People! We traveled from London on the euro-star, Which meant we started drinking at 4pm, You can imagine how filled my belly was with bubbles and wine? SWEET BABY JESUS. On the 1st we spent a Hungover day walking through the city not very romantic or cultured visit as all we did was moan about our sore heads from partying so hard the night before!! WOOPS, I stayed in London for a few days before returning to the reality of work, My 1st shoot was for Obscure Coutures Diffusion Range's Look book! They say never work with children and animals? Well, Obscure staying true to form we had 3 dogs on the shoot! With lots of props coloured wigs pizza and AH-MAZING clothes! It was a standard OB Shoot lasting no longer than 16 hours. OH HELL.

Then, after one days rest in between I was through to Edinburgh to shoot a COLOURFUL Editorial with Andrew R. Moore and team. 

With literally hours in-between of me leaving for Paris round 2! It was a semi earlish flight over! Arriving in Paris to be greeted by open arms with a glass of Wine in hand by a few dear friends! The good times rolled!

So, Another Year Down? What Thu? No but really? Where has this year gone? There has been Up's, Down's, Smile's, Tear's, Hot Date's & Broken Hearts, Good Hair Days and Really Bad One's, Personally Learned A lot About Myself But Especially Others & Quite frankly I Can't wait for the New Year to begin. Although it's been an amazing year for me I am not sad to say Goodbye to 20 11 & Hello to 2012, To some it's another day of the year, But I Love New Year & what it represents, New Clean Fresh Starts. It's all about aiming higher achieving more & being BETTER than ever before! & I Can't WAIT To BRING IT, I Recon this year will be Massively Bigger Than Last.
