Somone asked me the other day "What's been your FAVOURITE Shoot?"
I miss Australia, & The Amazing people I got to spend time with. I also miss the passionate people I worked with. This is just 1 of the images created in Australia. & As you can see the standard of photo is insane, Insane enough to make it into 2 different magazines. One of which being a full page. I have only seen about 5 images from that day in total, It's just the way they work over there. I am not allowed to see or publish the rest of the shoot until it has been published in the magazines first. Fair enough as it makes it worth my while! With such a great team I'm sure there will an amazing end result.
As you can see this in an UN EDITED image that literary been captured from a contact sheet. Still to have all the tweaks done to it. WOW I can't wait till it's OUT. Wait until you guys see it! I swear to god. Very very proud to have been involved, and I think you can agree it's one of my best! Everyone involved pushed me to my limits & That is so important. Who you work with can make or break you so girls choose carefully!

IS it sad that I'm still a little bit in awe of how many people read my gibberish? Well I don't really care BECAUSE I AM!
So, Morning Beauties, After my much needed morning in bed, I am now ready, ready for B.A.D.D fest! With some of the best people in the city attending its going to be a GOOD DAY! Not doing anything? Get yourself DOWN. (DETAILS!)
Totally OFF TRACK but ALWAYS relevant. I am on a COLDPLAY playing mission, Suits every mood and the Lyrics always seem so relate-able! Chris Martin You are a Legend of Our Time
I watched this last night! & All I can say is. What a complete LOSS to the music Industry. Such a sad story of addiction in every seance of the word. I believe True Romance killed Amy. Addiction to people can sometimes be as dangerous as the Drugs. Rest in P.E.A.C.E. You will forever be Bloody Brilliant

There is so many horrific things happening in the world today, Seems like an every day occurrence we over look the tragedy's surrounding us, Maybe we should all count ourselves LUCKY, stop taking things for granted, Seize the Day People. Live Each day like its Your Last because we Truly don't know what's round the corner.
This weekend will be spent with my sensible head on. I have ALOT to catch up. Including SLEEP. Tomorrow I have nothing planned ALL morning. This means La will be spending it in B.E.D.
I'm Thinking You Guys Should Know Me By Now? But. On a more NOT MY PERSONAL LIFE basis. Time to get personal? Is this getting S.E.R.I.O.U.S? Here's me, Age 6. Striking a pose, Hip out, Hands on hips and knee bent. Not much has changed.
That's Enough For One Night
You would think I would feel like that with my NIPS out Rather Then Now.
I am on a TOTAL LOVE BUZZ right now. Positivity is WHERE ITS AT PEOPLE. I have a new faith and belief in myself and I'm really going to WORK MY ASS OFF to prove I am NOT WANNABE SHE! I never knew if or how many people read my blog, and was always to scared to put up the widget that showed you as I imagined about 100 views in 4 months if that. But Today I MAN'D UP & Added it. 16,350 Views? WHAT THE HELL?
All I can say from that is, OH MY GOD. & Thank you.
Aim High, Dream Bigger Than you EVER believed and SMASH IT. Never Give Up and Chase whatever it is you want. Believe you deserve it and I swear. With a little blood sweat and tears you will see it happen.
As anyone that knows me knows how hard I work, not just at my bread and butter job at INAA but with Modelling especially, it's something I really put my heart and sole into. I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing people over the past year and have learned a hell of a lot. I have created my own little brand and it took a really long time to be recognised. I don't know what its like else where but I certainly know what my own city Glasgow is like. Its actually quite a sad thing as it seems no one supports peoples passion's WHERE IS THE LOVE PEOPLE? Take my facebook page and this blog for instants? I now have over a thousand people like it after just 3 months of starting it, You know how many of MY friends like it? not even a third of them! These people know exactly who they are! People will read my blog and look at my work but have nothing but bad things to say? The one I always get is, "You've done so much" YEAH! I WORK FREAKING HARD! Do you think I just do it for fun? No I do it because I love it and IT MAKES ME MONEY!
So Guys, Get Behind Me! It gives me a daily boost knowing there is support there!
I guess if you LOVE what you do it's not work? But I have to say coming off a 4 hour flight straight into a shoot was a first! WOW! We had such a dodgy flight coming home! We got picked up at the hotel at 3am! Flight took off at 6am, (Greece is 2hours ahead) so we landed in Glasgow about 10am U.K time! Studio was booked at half 12 and I had to run home, get a shower, un-pack - pack another case and run into town, pick up clothes from shops I was pulling from and grab accessories. & I was on time, everything laid out waiting for everyone's arrival. (PAT ON THE BACK LA)
MEET THE TEAM
Behind The Camera
So shoot details! Photographer Mr Sam Brill came down from up north! I have worked with the lovely man before so I knew that things were going to go well! Chilled out and lots of fun, Make up artist Jak Morgan, now been mentioned quite a few times on here, so known fact she's a regular in my life now, & I love it! Ms Emma Noble filming the video, I was introduced to emma when we shot the Gary Wilson Film, Also travelling down from up north as a pit stop before moving to the big smoke! Amazing chick and very talented, always helps!

So! Let me talk you through the concept, As creative director, I had a meeting with the big boss of the company to see what the aim was, & we both agreed Commercial with an edge, something cool and sexy but still in fashion sense not seedy
So with that in mind, Lot's of gold jewellery, swim suits, bikini's, shorts, underwear, chains and OIL were involved. Very greased up by the end of the shoot. With Jak brining her boombox we danced out the studio Blasting some Beyonce favourites! & soon 10am turned to 7pm & IT WAS A WRAP
Afraid I can't reveal a thing until its been published by the company But I have a feeling it will be worth the wait
1000% COMPLETELY Naive to think there would be WiFi on a Greek Island. So I guess since I haven't been able to rub the sunshine and 40 degree heat in your face daily, I'll get it over and done with in ONE GO
The hotel was beautiful, and the island itself was breathe taking!
BARE IN MIND THESE WERE TAKEN ON MY BB/IPHONE!
We Went Swimming
Windswept on The Boat
It was mostly Sun Sea & Sand but There was the occasional Shimmy Shamey in The Clubs
& Lots of Sister Bonding, Alcohol Very Much INVOLVED!
We Got Anklets at 5am, Then Got a Horse & Carriage Home (True Story)
On the downside I had to LOCK My youngest sister up at night. & I reckon she's starting to look like me..
Poor Christie Bumps
All in all all 4 Girls had a very relaxing but very fun week, Don't think I've laughed that much in all my Life!
So today, I'm going on HOLIDAY. & I have not even been shopping yet? So first it was a quick DASH to silverburn my local shopping centre! I samshed Bikini shopping and guzzled like 3 coffee's, Got the Job DONE and spent way to much DOLLA! Standard.
This Makes Me HAPPY.
Sunshine, No Drama, Just Good Weather, Amazing Company & COCKTAILS!
Now? I have to pack, SHEEEIIITTT! & Download a bunch of TUNES to keep me entertained in the sunshine I've Decided to take my macbook with me so I can make you all GREEN with envy and Keep ON TOP with my Blog.
ILI was on a shoot from 8am today for ASOS marketplace! HOW EXCITING? It was myself and two other beautiful models Lara & Rachel. Derrick Argent was shooting and The clothes were Obscure Couture. Hair and Make up was NATURAL? Not the usual OB STYLE as Every other time its been MENTAL make up and hair so this was definitely a more toned down shoot.
It went swimmingly with us getting the job done supper fast. Can't wait to see the pictures! As always it was amazing to hang out with some of the coolest in the country.
Now time to go home for food and see where the night takes me.
Peace Love & I Appreciate Every Last One of YOU!
Here's To KEEPING IT REAL
My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go but on
Heart on my sleeve
Not where it should be
The song's out of key again!
So D.I.V.A that I am, I went and bought myself a shiny new I Phone 4 today, As if my relationship with my blackberry wasn't enough? Now I have the best of both worlds
Today has been a pretty hard day, BUT ever Positive that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. I got some good news as I've been asked to front the campaign of a new Tanning Lotion launching through out the country BOOM BOOM BOOMI get a little control over the general feel of it as I've been given the big job as creative director I LOVE WHEN PEOPLE PUSH & BELIEVE IN ME!
After a meeting in town I rushed over to Paisley for a Team meeting with INAA, Beautiful Spot Right?
LETS DO BUISNESS
After huge meetings that seemed never ending today me and the director Joanne decided to go for a Yo Sushi @ Frasers for dinner! First timer me - I'm more partial to a MUCH more unhealthy option or a HUGE bowl of pasta, still trying to stick to this diet! BUMMER
I found this on my Mac Book, Sisterly Love. Myself and my younger sister Elle. She's makeup less and still beautiful. I shall have to get a good one of all three Andrew sisters.I love my siblings.
Today, I'm feeling this. Can't get enough of Yasmin. T.A.L.E.N.T in a big way, & She's from Glasgow!
Tomorrow I'll be doing a more serious blog about someTHING that's bothering me.
