On June the 16th I decided I wanted to completely redecorate my bedroom- so fast in fact that I didn't even have time to take any before pictures but just imagine this; a fuscia pink room with brown wallpaper and matching pink flowers with gold embellishment. Typical laminate flooring. A giant white ikea tower cupboard type eye sore. and an over flowing shoe rack. oh, doctor and of course loads of sh*t everywhere that had no place in my room so just occupied the floor- it was a pink sh*thole. I remember the date so well because it was after th Rihanna concert and I drove through the houses in wimbledon and was just inspired to redo my whole room. I have the box room and always thought that I couldn't do anything with the space but realised I was just being lazy so redone the whole room. I now have grey laminate flooring, scaffolding wardrobe rail, white brick all paper and glass shelves for my kicks- watch my video for a guided tour around my crib! photo-37 photo-40 photo-39 photo-38 photo-41 On June the 16th I decided I wanted to completely redecorate my bedroom- so fast in fact that I didn't even have time to take any before pictures but just imagine this; a fuscia pink room with brown wallpaper and matching pink flowers with gold embellishment.

These items are my life right now and I do not leave the house without them! Tomorrow I will show you guys my top beauty essentials for fashion week! fwe   1. Of course I cannot leave my house without my iPhone and iPod. My iPhone is equipped with an app called Hop Stop which I would suggest to anyone coming to New York City as it maps out your subway journeys for you and gives you several different options as well as step by step images and captions for walking journeys too. This app saved my life and without it I swear I wouldn't know where I was going 90% of the time. 2. My portable iPhone charger is so necessary for my long days out casting- if my phone dies I die. Ok, cheap that's an exaggeration and another reason I have my iPod; at least if my phone dies I can find wifi and map out all my castings. You can buy one of these chargers on amazon or if you live in America- best buy. 3. My Beats By Dr. Dre head phones are my best friend during fashion week- I don't really want to hear other models talking about modelling whilst we are casting for modelling jobs- yeah kill me. These are the Mixr model and are are much smaller than the other styles and fold away into a much more compact shape so don't take up too much space in my bag. 4. Cash- you have always got to have cash in NYC. Like, you should never leave out without it. 5. I will be sporting my Chanel sunglasses most days this season! 6. I hate wearing underwired bras nowadays, especially for long hot days in New York. My favourite underwear brand is, of course, & Other Stories and I wear their bras everyday here. Not only are they comfortable but they are beautiful- I catch models watching me get changed all the time because of my underwear haha. 7. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Balm is with me at all times- nothing worse than a dry lipped picture of you going on the casting board. Its hydrating but not too shiny and lasts for hours (maybe not eight as suggested but you get the idea). 8. My Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss is another one of my favourite lip balms because it makes my lips tingle. Its not too sticky or heavy and gives a really nice shine; I alternate between my two lip products. 9. Coins- there is always a homeless person or busker who is down on their luck but sometimes you don't want to give them your last dollar! Carrying coins will relieve your sense of guilt and also make them happy- its a win win situation. 10. I always carry my marker pen from Muji with my nowadays and it has come in very handy when at castings. 11. Although I always wear my hair up anyway I always carry a spare hair band with me just incase a fellow model is in need at a casting. Nothing is worse than having to tie your hair up with a raggedy elastic band they found on the floor for you! 12. SPARE CARDS! If I have 10 castings I will have at least 20 cards on me. You Never know which casting will ask for one card let alone two or more so its best to be prepared!   *Hope you enjoyed this post- bare with me as I have some exciting changes coming soon to the blog which you will all love!
