Hmmmm life

I don’t know how, but sometimes life does just take one big shift. Everything isn’t suddenly miraculously perfect but…something happens and suddenly the world is a much brighter place to love than yesterday. I am starting to come to the conclusion that making changes(and I’m not meaning crunchy instead of smooth PB) does increase the positive energy, the good luck, the…I don’t know…just good shiz to start flowing in your direction.I feel like it is the universe rewarding you for taking that step forward, for being brave to make a commitment, take on responsibility. That may sound childish and stupid but I have decided to no longer be afraid to take risks and not move forward. I am taking life by the…by something and riding it till the cows come home!buddydaywm

 

It’s either that or literally my dog is a good luck charm.

whatta ta do?

My fiance has become allergic to our puppy. The starting to clean himself and his change of fur has meant his saliva is ever more prevalent in our house and starting to affect Sean’s Marsupial glands. Breathing is becoming a struggle and the little scamps hairs are everywhere. I have the horrid feeling it will be one or the other time. I always knew I would love this little fella but I love him more than I thought possible. It is starting to become an incredibly depressing conclusion of having to give Buddy to a new family. For someone who has no intentions of having kids and a dog was going to fill that void I am starting to think on those women desperate to have a child but can’t. Last week I was feeling incredibly happy and was feeling so blessed that mine and Seans careers had been moving in positive directions. I have started a couple of new ventures which are giving me great positivity boosts, i finally have the dog ive always wanted, etc etc, all things good basically i made sure i was thankful and was grateful for all our blessings but for some reason something always has to come along to rain on your parade. I understand why Kurt Cobain felt safe in the sadness. It is nicer to have hope that it will get better than live in fear that it will be taken away.

 

The Other Dream Team

Now obviously buddy and a bucks are at no.1 but I must admit the THATGIRL team were one of the best I have worked with! Christina and Charli brought together an incredibly talented bunch of individuals. Obviously my co-star Sean Lerwill is incredibly professional and hard working so a joy to work with. The photographer/videographer team of Fashion blogger Nicole Markoff and David Sheldrick were brilliant. Powering through all day and coming up with incredible angles to shoot from amazing the visuals better than I could have ever imagined. Also one of the best skills and attributes I find most important in a photographer, videographer, DoP or cinematographer is putting you at ease. It just bodes well for a smoother, quicker and much more productive shoot, bringing out the best of everyone involved. These guys have that nailed! I would definitely be blessed to work with them again!
The make up artist was a beautiful woman called Emily Grove who was beautiful inside and out. Also very good at her craft. She made me feel glamorous all weekend! The Hair stylist and assistant to Josh Woods made the most of my dead straight lustre lacking locks and Katie Grands assistant Lucy brought along a wardrobe load of beautifully cut garments. I literally felt like I had woken up in a dream! My apartment(for the shoot) was over looking london bridge station and high enough to see over london, with an incredibly stylish roof top terrace. Stunning! Food supplied by the masters at Detox Kitchen and the most tantalising tastebud awakening juices from Imbibery London. (go for the Cashew Mylk, its…wow…just wow)I was also lucky enough to take Buddy along with me, who of course stole the show and got used in a few shots!

Thanks to the intense work out devised by Charli and Christina I was quite a sweaty mess throughout and felt the effects of the exercises. I must admit to being thankful for the fashion shots which gave me a breather between exercises! Even now my muscles are saying hello!

Anyway I am just so incredibly Thankful and blessed to have been part of such a great team. They also were so positive and complimentary to me that they asked me to dance which we ended up using in the video. It was really lovely to be able to use my Dance skills again. It reminded me of the Laura Marling shoot. Another beautiful job.

Thank you, to the team and all my support team who have kept me going through out the tough times to be able to still be in the industry and come across jobs like this one!
