Anne Hatherway Nomination Plea

As we all know ANNE HATHAWAY is up for an Oscar nomination for her incredible performance in the (stage to film) true story, Les Miserables.

After winning best supporting actress at the SAG Awards, Golden Globes & Critics Choice, she reminds the Academy, why she must win at the 85th Academy Awards in this hilarious spoof video.

Interviewing the talent in the spoof video, Emma Fitzpatrick quoted;
“I probably watched [the 'I Dreamed a Dream' scene] five or six times … and tried to get the mannerisms. That’s the joke: making it look as spot-on as you can.”

“It would be awesome if [Anne] saw it,” Emma added. “She seems like a funny chick.”

Lipsy Launch party London 2013

I had the honour to be invited to the Lipsy Launch party for their new perfume "Love" I went with my old roommate at the time and friend from the cast Abi (@abiphillipsuk). We got to go to Lipsy HQ and choose a dress of wears to wear that night and in the end I got to keep mine! SOOO lucky. Apparently the dress I have is the exact original that Paris Hilton wore, surprised I fitted into it! Eeeeek. Inside the party I recognised faces but obviously they didn't know me which felt a bit weird! But there were free drinks all night and canopies of mini burgers and desserts, then JLS hit the decks for a while and they were really good.
Hope you like the photos.



Heels are from Faith - £65

Bronagh and Emmett's leaving party


I never got round to posting this at the time so I'm going to post it now!

NTA's were so surreal: the lights, the cameras, the glamour, the national revelation awards had it all..

Cruising through the picturesque countryside my mind was reeling with ideas on what tonight could hold. The cast and I had just left Liverpool Lime street and the excitement in the air streamed through my blood as we arrived at London Euston. Paparazzi were scattered in the cracks and corners so we were quickly ushered into black cars round the back.

After a short, yet hectic journey, we somehow had time for a massage and an acupuncture session which helped us relax and prepare for the night ahead. Hair and make up calls followed, which were done by a fantastic team using VO5 products - of which I got special treats!

As I raced upstairs to throw my dress on (this by the way was the first time I'd ever tried the dress on) the problems began to surface.. My heels were a different height than originally planned resulting in the dress appearing too short and my backless bra wasn't so backless meaning I had to go commando!

After wriggling into the dress and my designer doing last minute tweaks the whole car journey, seconds before stepping onto the red carpet I was ready! The door was opened my side and my legs turned to jelly, I sat there staring into the cameras, lightning bolts burning into my eyes. Momentarily paralysed I came round when my co-star grabbed my hand and jumped out the car dragging me out with her and throwing on her best smile. I watched her and the other members of the cast work their way down the red carpet, addressing fans and getting snapped up by the paparazzi in the moment.

The rest was a blur, I kind of went autopilot as I strode down the red carpet, talking into microphones and posing for the press and engaging in conversation.

The award ceremony was one of the best experiences of my life, the energy and enthusiasm were second to none. Everyone was excited to be there and the hum in the O2 arena evolved into to cheers as everybody applauded each other. Achievements were congratulated and people were appreciated. It seemed like the whole country was in unison; from the O2 security to the American A-listers, it just clicked.

Afterwards everyone hit the bar and the private function rooms, the nibbles were served, the champagne was flowing and the conversation was rolling. I should probably give away no more details from that evening, but it is one that I shall treasure forever and never forget.

Danny and I messing about!

Moving up North

So last year I moved to Liverpool properly to be up north full time for work. And I moved in with Abi (@Abiphillipsuk), which was amaaaaazing. We go running together, go food shopping together, watch films, play scrabble and have sleepovers. Not to mention.. we throw the best house parties like ever! We had a Halloween one with loads of decorations and invited everyone and you had to dress up. I made fish bowls and pitchers which all got drank pretty fast, and then we hit Liverpool townnnn! Enjoy xx

Future shots

Dying to do a photoshoot inspired by a mood board like these, I haven't shot for ages now so am rusty but ready to save back into it and get some snaps. Any takers? xx

Balearic islands

So I've been on holiday for my cousins Hen do, and it was awesome, we had a free bar in our hotel so I don't really remember much, plus I probably put on about a stone from the amount of alcohol & food we consumed but it was worth it! We messed about in the sea, danced, sun bathed, went shopping, went clubbing and dressed up as the funniest things! Most of the snaps probably would have put me to shame to upload but here are some of the more appropriate ones! Including a holiday romance I had..! Hehe xx

Levitation photography

Something I really want to do myself one day, love all these photos..
