Fashion Shoot; MUA

Recently, I worked with the talented Designer, Stylist, Seamstress and all round Fashion Guru: Jessica Irwin.

Popular for her instaposts, Jessica puts together outfits from her vast wardrobe; the most interesting fact about Jessica is that half of the items, she has made, restyled, designed, or in someway modified to produce her own take on it.

She is based in the County of Worcestershire; works all over the UK, but mainly in the Midlands.

The Photographer was Midlands based Robert Payton and I was Hair & Make Up Artist.

Fashion Addict; Gold

Gold defies age and time, it transcends throughout collections, from season to season.
Wether you jump straight in or just want to dabble your feet; anyone can find a shade of gold that is flattering for them.

Day Time
You can add Gold to your daytime wardrobe by wearing a chunky necklace or bracelet. If you like to make a statement; team an unfitted Gold shirt or a Gold blazer with black fitted trousers and pointed kitten heels.

For Me; All that Glitters is Gold.
Here are a few of my favourite
Night Time party pieces;

Day ONE after the Op.

Hello all,
I am blogging from my phone. I am feeling fragile, I can’t sit properly or stand/walk, basically: I can lie down on my back – this is very uncomfortable. I just want to roll on to my side and catch some ZZZZZZ’s. 😦
I’m lucky that I have my Brother taking care of me.
I think “lucky” is a word that resounds across the board for me so far or “fortunate”.
It’ll be 6-8 weeks before I go back for a check up and to find out the results of the tests they’re running.
I have learned not to think about the ‘what ifs’ at least until the time comes, because you can worry yourself silly.

Ah, I just sneezed, whilst writing this, and it was the most horrific pain ever!

Take Care My Golden Drops of Cyber Lovelies.

London Love

It’s 1.30am – I can’t sleep – My tummy is still killing me from the op –  Please excuse any spelling errors or punctuation issues, Thank You Dolls.

Paris – New York – London

The Fashion Capitals.

London for me is a multicultural city of style. If you have ever seen the film or read the book The Devil Wears Prada you will be able to appreciate the importance of Fashion with regard to how it features in every single persons life; irrespective of their Race, Class, Gender or Nationality.

London like Paris & New York, holds a raw, diverse, collection of looks across its inhabitants. It encapsulates entirely every trend in the spectrum.
The BoHo, Arty, Vintage, Hipsters of Putney; to the Quirky, Designer, Eccentric Dressers of Chiswick; The Regal, Classic, Timeless Pieces sported by the Cities Professionals.

It is no wonder then, that University Students flock to London to enrol and pursue their careers is Fashion.

So Why Don’t People Take Careers in Fashion Seriously?

The Cities First Official Catwalk was in 1984; prior to this London struggled to define itself in the Fashion Dictionary. It now sits alongside Paris, Milan and New York comfortably; offering designers such as McQueen, Stella McCartney, Ceila Birtwell, Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and so the list is endless…
Fashion is a multimillion pound industry in which the subcategories in which you can work but still contribute to the ‘Big Picture’ or End Product in Fashion are endless too!

FashionUnited.co.uk Highlight that The UK fashion and textiles sectors as a whole employ an estimated 600 thousand people, making the United Kingdom the third-largest fashion employer in the EU-27 surpassed only by Italy and Germany.

These facts are worth baring in mind, the next time you disregard the Fashion Industry as a Career or Discipline.

To summarise this article your cavalier reproach does not make you exempt from the World of Fashion.

And on that note her is, my Outfit of the Night.
Beautiful, Baby Pink, Long, Sequinned, Strapless, Floaty Dress, accompanied by my Gold Rectangle Clutch with the Black Jewel Clasp.

He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul’s estate.

There is nothing quite like getting away from life for an hour or so to go and relax in The Spa.

I know some people find going to the Gym allows them to let off steam.
I always go to the Gym in the morning, as it stimulates me for the day; whereas lounging around in the Jacuzzi, Steam Room, Sauna, followed by a cool shower invigorates me in a way that I feel alleviated of the days stresses.

As I submerge myself into the bubbling water, I enter a complete state of tranquility. This, for me, is unachievable when entering into any level of activity.

If you get the chance do go and have a Spa Day or even join a Health Spa.

The Benefits are endless

Outfit of the Night (WIWT)

After having some very spectacular days and nights out, I thought it might be nice to share a few of my little outfits with you all.

Potentially might not be blogging for a while, or blogging more, depending on how I feel after my op tomorrow.

Here is a beautiful little lace number.
