After working all weekend doing an event for Ralph Lauren at the Sotheby’s galleries on New Bond St, check I had an early awakening to catch the first train to Paris at 5:40am to shoot Vieor Magazine. I hadn’t been back to Paris since fashion week so was excited that I had been cast for this editorial. (My job isn’t just a job, health it’s a lifestyle so getting told I’m going to a different country the following day is normal and it still amazes me that I can go from London to Paris and back home in less than a day). The feel of the shoot was so me; I was oiled up and baring flesh and got on well with the team which is always a plus. I did about ten different looks and each had a different feel which I enjoy the most as I got to play different characters for each shot. Two of the shots were actually topless which I have done before but not for a while; I just embraced it and the shots came out beautifully. People often ask me what it is like shooting topless or nude and I always explain that it’s all about how it’s approached. If the photographer makes you feel comfortable and shows you how the shots are looking as you go along then it’s fine and if I ever feel unhappy about how I look in a shot then I do always say; nothing worse than having such an exposed image of yourself that you feel uncomfortable with. The last look was me covered in body art which was unusual (and very ticklish) but I’m really excited to see how all the images look together. After I showered off the paint I caught the Eurostar back to London and was home by 11:30pm, this exhausted but grateful that I was picked and just ready for the next shoot!

IMG_3157 IMG_3163 IMG_3174 IMG_3276 IMG_3184 Since I was a young girl I have never been the girly type. I wasn't allowed jelly shoes with the heel and was never really into make-up or dresses but I was always into street wear because of my older brother so naturally Nike was a very common brand in my household. Recently, treat my obsession with this cult brand has come back in full force, stuff most probably because I am surrounded by it here in New York and can't help but buy a hoodie when I see one; they're nostalgic yet relevant and timeless all at the same time. Since coming to New York I have already bought three hoodies and some kicks and I love them all so much as not only are they cool as f*ck but they're perfect for winter. It was like a message from God when I entered my model apartment to see rolls of white and grey back drop hanging from the ceiling so I had to use them for my story- 'My Nike Obsession', and what better way to show an obsession that to wear only those particular pieces that will have me smiling all winter. Hope you enjoy the mix of stills and gifs!

Yes, we always talk about printing them and yes we can always view them and look back at our instagrams to reminisce over a funny group photo but it's just no the same anymore.  I purchased the Canon Selphy printer as a personal Christmas present and I am literally urging everyone to get one. They're quick and easy to set up and you can print directly from your phone turning that twitter pic you posted into a real photo which you can keep forever.

I bought an expandable scrapbook from Muji and have been summarising 2013 in photos, from my favourite days at work to my holiday in Dubai or that random night with my girls. It's so much better than looking at a phone screen and it's private; something that you can look back at in 20 years and smile at... will there even be a charger available for iPhones then considering they change them every 2 years?! I also have my polaroid camera which I bought earlier last year to add to my book; can't wait to look back at it and compare it to 2014's scrapbook. Printer, Amazon (paper and ink are separate) Scrapbook, Muji (additional pages separate. comes with ten)
