Fairy Cave

This blog is brought to you by the in-room wifi at an old-style luxurious Victorian manor I'm staying at in Surrey. I had a great shoot with one of my favourite photographers today, followed by an interview in my hotel room for KFS TV, followed by a three-course solo dinner- as I was absolutely starved by 5pm!

Here are a couple of photos by Rlux from a recent shoot in a cave in Somerset! I came back the following day with a torch to explore it further :D

I love the way the seams in the rock behind me have given me fairy wings.

Two shoots in London tomorrow: the first, me showing a photographer round some of my old London locations, and the second in the studio, which is also being filmed for TV. Then a girls-only dinner with my friends Roswell Ivory and Luci Alice 

Right now I'm relaxing with a Bareskin Beauty clay face mask while drawing a candlelit bath in my hotel room. If you haven't already seen it, I explain how I keep my skin clear and healthy while travelling in this video :)

Facebook and Instagram are also great places to keep up with me- they're quicker to update than my blog if I get a quick patch of phone signal between shoots! If you have any questions about modelling, either as an experienced model or as someone just thinking about giving modelling a try, please read this first (available worldwide through various websites)- it's £12.99 well invested as it will save you sooo much time, money and misdirected effort!

Lots of love,

New photos from my last Asian Tour

New photos shot by lovely photographer Geoffrey Pereira in Singapore during my 2014 Asian Tour :)

First up, me modelling nothing but the $1 sunglasses I bought in the market after I managed to break the £90 pair I brought with me. Skincare by Bareskin Beauty.

Lingerie by Playful Promises, shoes by Fabulously Fetish. Apologies if you already saw this one on Facebook!
Leather jacket my own, ended up in the bin after being eaten by extreme high humidity in the Malaysian jungle later in the trip. Oh well!

Back from a last-minute weekend in London modelling for four Olympus workshops and a beauty magazine editorial. I left the house at 4.30 on Saturday morning and arrived home precisely 48 hours later at 4.30 this morning, having stopped at three sets of services on the way back for an hour of sleep here, an hour of sleep there, and finally, when that didn't work, a 3am stop-off for caramel soy cappuccino, brushing and flossing of teeth and a DIY Bareskin Beauty exfoliating facial in the toilets at the last motorway services. I'm very tired today, but at least my skin is glowing!

Here's a clearer shot of those $1 sunglasses, 'cos I know you're dying to see them.

Dentist appointment first thing tomorrow, followed by seventeen full days of shooting in a row in Somerset, Kent, the Isle of Wight, London, Milton Keynes and Norfolk. Woooooo!!! So close to having the deposit for my dream house now ^_^

5.45pm EDIT: I forgot to say, if you are a freelance model like me, or interested in becoming one, and would like my book on how I do it, the posh hardback version is on special offer on Amazon UK atm, reduced from £26.99 to £16.89 + free P&P :)

Free "Ugly" Girl's Guide to Modelling video: Maintaining perfect "model" skin on tour (or on holiday)

Welcome to my first #MondayModelBiz video!!! :D

Scroll down and click the play button to watch it!

If you've read The "Ugly" Girl's Guide to Modelling, you'll know that my nutritionist, Juliette Scarfe and I talk extensively about how to achieve and most importantly, maintain (isn't that the hardest part?!) what I call in the book perfect "model" skin.

Hopefully you've enjoyed some of The "Ugly" Girl's Guide to Modelling easy and beautifying vegan recipes, tested some of the advice and are already experiencing great results every day! Even if this is new to you, though, you should be interested in this video I made for you about how to maintain great skin on the road, whether you're a model on tour or getting ready to have the best holiday photos ever when you go away this summer!

Planning your Summer holidays? Our favourite model Anita de Bauch gives us her beauty tips when travelling, including several products from our range, thanks Anita!

Now I'm off to yoga, followed by lunch with my inspirational grandmother (88 year-old vegetarian with decades of yoga under her belt, and still a size 8!), and my cats, Dexter and Lilith! Have a great Monday, beauties!

Gothesque magazine editorial

I have an arty four-page editorial in this month's issue of Gothesque magazine, styled and shot by Phine Ka in my hotel room :) It's funny how some of my favourite images have been shot in my hotel rooms, my apartment, other people's living rooms and places like that, rather than always being on expensive rented sets or locations!

Click the images to see larger versions!

I just got home from 24 hours of helping my nan settle into her new place, followed by a green smoothie, a two-hour workout, and lots of housework! I'm not the greatest chef in the world, but I'm a real homebody when it comes to cleaning. I like everything to look, feel and smell wonderful, both for me and my man :) The cats are happy because they got to sunbathe in the garden for a couple of hours while I enjoyed lunch al fresco (with my Bareskin Beauty sun cream) and hung out the washing.

The day before yesterday happened to be Marilyn Monroe's 89th birthday and my 9th modelling anniversary, not that I had time to celebrate!

Next up, Wokingham on Saturday! If you are a photographer interested in a studio shoot with me at a discounted rate, I currently have the morning available at Fine & DanDee Studio on Saturday 6 June for £50ph all-inclusive. They have a dungeon room and a boudoir room too! Email if you're interested :)

Oh, and did I mention? I'm on Instagram- follow me if you're on there :D
