Here's a little update for you as I've haven't been up to the minute with my social networking. I started a little project for myself and had help from, my boyfriend/partner in crime, Liam Griffiths. The photos above are from behind the scenes of the photoshoot we did for an advertising campaign for Topshop and Topman. I was Art Director for the project as well as a model - I can multitask! We used ourselves as models because we just wanted to experiment and have fun - but you'll see more posts about that project in the future, as I had to plan it out. If I wanted to take it a step further I would hire professional models and photographer.

Another thing is, I have been currently designing my own online portfolio website! I taught myself the software from Adobe and been slightly addicted to it. I shall hopefully be launching that in a couple of months.

And...if you haven't guessed and was wondering where I got my outfit from, the black long sleeve crop top and patterned culottes are from Topshop. 


Last week I modelled at Jacob McCarthy's new photography studio / Studio 11 in Newport. I has my make up and hair professionally done by Pea Robins, and my photos taken by Jacob McCarthy, Sep Nowrouz, and Michael Garland. The process took 3 hours and was immensely fun! This little film documenting the day was filmed and edited by Sep and the final image was taken by Jacob.

This is Dolce & Gabbana's Autumn/Winter 2014 advertising campaign, and although it ticks my normal fantasy photography and style, I'm not particularly sure with this. So some reason I think that D&G are taking inspiration from Monty Python's 'Knights who say ni', Little Red Riding Hood, Oliver Twist, witches, and the White Queen. This is completely unique to D&G's normal campaigns, which focus on the Italian culture, heritage, family, sophistication, and flirtation.

What do you think of Dolce & Gabbana's campaign; yay or nay?

I went to Bristol yesterday for some mini golf at Cabot Circus and being generally nosey. I walked through graffiti street and had to take some photos of the art that I liked best - how talented are these people!??

Barbie's were a big part of my childhood, and although receiving massive criticism, I still love them. Now Mattel has now released Barbie Entrepreneur, which encourages girls to have a career that they are in charge of. (Not the Barbie in the photo on the left). Over the years Barbie dolls have had many jobs, including being a vet, astronaut, footballer, ballerina, doctor, and pilot.
Although Barbie has had much criticism over her unrealistic appearance, at least Barbie had a career and didn't rely on Ken's job to support herself. Barbie was and always has been independent. Most young girls never even notice the unrealistic proportions of the doll. However, what about the amazing models out there like Kate Moss, Cara Delevinge, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who do have super long legs, thin waists, big boobs - why are they deemed non-real women by others? They look real enough to me.

The new entrepreneur doll shows that girls can be stylish, beautiful, intelligent, independent, and in control.

When I was young, I used my dolls to express how I would like to live when I was older, what career I'd had, what lifestyle, etc. It gave me a focus. My Barbie's would be dressed in cool clothes, loved shopping, went to parties, met up with her friend's in a coffee shop, worked as an artist and photographer, went travelling across the world. I was 5 when I used to do this.

Did you love Barbie?
