Vintage glamour lingerie with What Katie Did, Fabulously Fetish & Bareskin Beauty

Lazy Sunday morning... actually, it's 1pm already... goes to show how lazy my morning has been...

Looking forward to modelling with my good friend Ivory Flame (go check out her new website!) at a stunning old mansion here in Somerset tomorrow. We've been booked together as a duo for fashion and art nude work before, but this is the first time we'll have shot vintage glamour together, one of my favourite styles :) Girly sleepover at mine tonight!

Castle in the clouds complete with Prince Charming? Check!

Great news! Boyfy and I put in an offer on our first house, and it was accepted! It was the one I mentioned at the end of my last blog that has a huge old fireplace, library, courtyard and dungeon :D

(Apologies if you already know this from my InstagramTwitter!)

It's an apartment in a massive Georgian house in the country. We knew it was ours the moment we clapped eyes on it! Thank you so much to everyone who has booked me over the last two years- it was entirely your constant support that funded my half of the deposit :) As far as I'm aware, I'm one of maybe four art nude models in the whole country who's managed to buy a place purely with modelling money... baby-boomer photographers proclaiming that models over-charge, take note ;)

There is a chance we might be able to move in to our first home by Christmas! :) Visualise this fireplace decorated with fir tree branches, holly and candles if you will (I am!) with deer antlers above and a live tree covered in tiny gold fairy lights in the corner :D

CGI by anonymous local artist :p Those are my cats, btw.

I love old buildings; they instantly make me feel at home. They almost seem alive and with their own personalities that they've accumulated over time. Here is a shot from a recent shoot with one of my favourite photographers in one of my favourite locations, The Pit Studio in Nottingham, a massive Victorian Gothic set of high-ceilinged rooms with big windows and an air of beauty in decay. I will try and do a studio day there on 17 October @ £50ph, if any photographers reading this are interested :)

I am having a wonderful time writing to do and to buy lists for the new house... I should really get my head back in the game and get on with booking tours for October and November!

Dirty Polaroids by Steve Prue feat. Lady Allura's Latex & Fabulously Fetish shoes!

I'd like to share some DIRTY Polaroids Steve Prue took of me in New York, wearing (in some cases) Lady Allura's Latex and Fabulously Fetish heels, plus a pair of earrings I found in a vintage store in Manhattan :)

This was the point in the shoot where I really let my "trashy" side out to play! Not sure if any of these pictures will end up in my portfolio, but they were fun to shoot... click the images to see full-size versions.

Super excited about viewing an apartment in a gorgeous historic building tomorrow that has its own library, courtyard and dungeon!! Well, okay, the "dungeon" is listed as a "wine cellar", but it can be multi-use, right? ;) Send positive thoughts for me, because I could make some great pictures/ movies to share with you there if I do buy it :D

Lady Allura's Latex & Fabulously Fetish shot by Steve Prue in NYC. 18+! Photo-heavy.

Some badass photos from my Lady Allura's Latex and Fabulously Fetish shoes shoot with Steve Prue in NY in March last year, when I learned why New York models are so skinny- they don't get time to eat!

I was rushing all over Manhattan, Staten Island and New Jersey for shoots during my trip there. I managed to get breakfast every morning, usually carrying my cup of peppermint tea with me on the subway in the eco carry cup that was in my LFW goodie bag, but then often didn't manage to get lunch running between shoots in the middle of the day, and then was often so exhausted on returning to my hotel that I'd simply wash my face and pass out in bed by 7.30pm.

I started to notice on the back of photographers' cameras that I was starting to look a bit twiggy, even to my eyes, and I occasionally see it in this photo set, even though the lighting is fairly high-key. Nonetheless, I really like that I got the opportunity to work on such an American-looking set while visiting the States, and I think these photos are in a completely different style and show a completely different side of me than usually shows up in photos. I'd like it to be a magazine editorial some day :)

PS: I viewed a lovely apartment in Glastonbury today. I might end up buying it ^_^
