Capital FM Rocks!

So we've all asked ourselves that question once in our lives, maybe some individuals more than others, but admit it or deny it we've all heard that sheepish little voice in our head ask.. 

What happened last night? 

Well, last night, Capital Rocks happened..

View from the top of the roundhouse

For those who are not aware, Capital Rocks is an annual music event that raises money for the charity 'Help a Capital Child'. This year Capital managed to raise over £500,000 which is astonishing, I for one was left speechless and truly humbled.
This year was my first time going, I bumped into loads of my friends and met a bunch of 'proper' cool people. Here's what I can tell you happened..

Bumped into the Lawson boys, Greg, Ashley and Lilah

Year of the selfieeeeee!
Selfieeeee of the year!

Little Mix take the stage

So apparently we look like twins, should I be so honoured

Little Mix owned the stage with their latest track 'Move' followed by JLS who got us all up off our tables dancing like crazy! Now can we just take a minute to imagine, 100 people of all ages, fuelled with wine, dancing to JLS. It was hilarious and definitely put everyone in the right mood for..

I'm sorry to say but the rest of the night will remain unwritten,

Last shoot of the year

One of my little loves is having a jam sesh. 

Grab a great photographer, an intelligent MUA and snap away..

This afternoon we all caught up, told funny stories, played tricks on each other, danced to the music channel, drank way too much tea, oh and took a few snaps. This is most probably my last photo shoot of the year, photography by the wonderful Chris Harris and Hair and Make Up by the brilliant Katy Short.
Click on their names for their details.

Will be shooting a lot more next year, that's a promise!

Summer 2013


I had the best summer ever, literally didn't have a single day to relax! There's never enough time to pack everything in normally but this year it was chock-a-block and I'm not complaining! 

I could go on about my whole summer but instead I'm going to pick a few of my favourite things I did, firstly to save you from getting bored of me and secondly because there are somethings one should keep to ones self. 

Lets start with..


Now as every designer, model, blogger or anyone with an interest in fashion knows, LCM stands for London Collections: men, which is fashion week for men. 

Clothes clothes clothes

What to wear was my biggest problem! With mens style becoming as popular as womens nowadays, the coverage was immense, everyone was excited to see the new collections.
Having bumped into numerous friends, everyone began to take their seats as the lights went down. 

The music began, the models set off and cameras were flashing. 

The shows were brilliant, the designers had worked incredibly hard to let their talents flourish and the atmosphere was buzzing! 

I do not own this photo either
I do not own this photo - unfortunately

This is from 'Pineal Dawn' Menswear collection is the name of Alex Mattsson's new SS14 collection. The collection's theme was camo teamed with military which one probably wouldn't think would work in the fashion industry, however be prepared to be proved wrong. Here are some of my favourite looks.

8 hours sleep a night is what the doctors recommend right? Maybe this goes out the window when you have 5 lots of 100 page scripts to read, learn, rehearse, voice over, film, and edit in four weeks. Safe to say the best month of my entire life, who knew living off Red Bull and having 4 hours sleep a night could be so fun?

The Laters in a Nutshell (Holly's story).. 

Holly and her boyfriend Callum go away to a country house for their friends 18th, Callum and Holly fall out, he cheats on her at the party, she almost gets raped by Wes. Holly tells Callum about Wes but he doesn't believe her, Wes comes after Holly but is killed by Callum when he catches Wes with a gun to Holly's head. Callum hides Holly in the basement while he goes to save the others from Crazy Jade. Holly is waiting for too long so goes to find Callum but bumps into Crazy Jade who has come to kill Holly. Holly is tied up but saved by her friends who tell her Callum has already been murdered by Jade.

Everyone loves a happy ending 'eh! Poor Holly.

Those episodes happened to be my final ones I filmed with Lime Pictures, my showreel can be seen here. Thanks again to everyone at Hollyoaks and the Laters team.

A Good Old party anyone?

Have you guys ever been to the Natural History Museum? Yep, the place Mum and Dad insisted on taking you to when you were younger, where you're forced to read all the information slabs about how this fossil evolved differently to the one next to it.. Good.. Now have you ever watched Night at The Museum? The film with Ben Stiller where he's a security guard at the museum and it comes alive at night? Well I think it's safe to say that the Natural History Museum came to life. The Kardashians held an event there to celebrate Khloe's new Range. 

The catwalk was down the main escalator at the front of the museum, the drinks were all tailored to fit in with the theme and Khloe looked pretty hot I must say.

It was so surreal but awesome.

I also attended loads of charity events with my friends, including raising money for the Philippines, cancer research, and many more. These events all deserve a mention too, so thank you for everyone making these wonderful things happen this summer. 

Have a wonderful rest of the year kids.

Healthy berry smoothie

Hellooooo, I love making juices and smoothies, they're delicious and give me loads of energy, but they're also super healthy! People keep asking me about them so I thought I'd blog about the next one I made. Which happened to be one of my favourites..

My Berry Smoothie!

This berry combo provides nutrients needed for healthy hair, skin, and nails. 

The berries offer a healthy dose of B and C vitamins. The Greek
yogurt contains necessary calcium and probiotic bacteria to support a well functioning digestive system.


8 strawberries
A handful of blueberries 
6 ice cubes
A generous dose of Greek Yogurt
A lash of milk

So here's what to do!

1. Wash all the fruit and cut off the yucky bits! Throw the ingredients into a blender or food processor. 

2. Mix them all together and roughly judge whether you need anymore yoghurt/milk to make the texture thick :)

3. Pour into a glass & enjoy! Good luck!

When the going gets tough.. I just escape for a few days! Ok so this doesn't always happen but I just thought I'd treat myself to a bit of sun after the company of this diabolical English weather. So I swept myself off to Rhodes for a week, to clear my head and have some time to myself! 

Anyway, 18 hours after booking my break I'd packed my suitcase, boarded the plane, and was gradually sailing away from the damp, groggy atmosphere into a toasty, humid one - the best feeling ever! 

Every morning I glided through the sun-heated sea then sizzled under the sun before enjoying lunch on the rocks. I tried to do something adventurous in the afternoons, starting with a tour around Rhodes on the Saturday. A trip through the Greek ruins on Sunday, a boat trip on Monday, exploring the amphitheatre on Tuesday and hunting through the Markets on Wednesday. 

Lindos beach
Best run ever


Ruins :)

Greek Ruins

I hardly had any reminders of reality for a few days. OH MY GOSH it felt like I had entered  paradise haha! Although I missed humanity it was nice to just escape, bury my head in a good book and hide under some sunglasses!

Ice cream!

Last morning

Mr. Donkey
Salmon.. mmmm

Couldn't decide what was better, the chocolate cheesecake or my view!

The morning of leaving!

The experience was unforgettable and I will treasure my time there forever.
