Today consisted of travel, travel travel! and i feel completely dead now! I woke up at crack of dawn which in my times is 6! TO early for me to be honest! and i only woke so early because the sun was blazing through my un-shut curtains. Got to Manchester train station for about 7:55 and caught the train to the CAPITAL! my home town ( I wish). Just as i got seats that was available loads & Loads i mean like hundreds of school kids crammed my carriage & im not an early person so i changed my seats to a more quieter one. As i got settled i realized i had no leg room atall so i thought i have a spare chair so why not put my legs up! Next minuet a old granny decides to sit next to me, and use MY seat to sit on out of all the other 100! i was so annoyed.

So i arrived in the big bad city and just wanted to explore! but couldn't really seen as i had a shoot at 11:30! So as soon as i got of the train i made my way to swiss cottage. and as you may know im not exactly the brains of my family and i struggle with direction, so i was asking everyone heedlessly where to go !!
Finally i arrived at swiss cottage but the only problem was is that i didn't know where to go from there so i downloaded google maps quick time! and what a frigging disaster that was! Stupid thing! i was walking around in a circle for HOURS! well i lie.. about 24mins!
Anyway i finally found my way, and went to set, and there were about 3 other female models! all uniquely beautiful and quickly got my hair and Make-up done, but put it this way, my hair wasn't what iv ever had before, They straightened the top and then last min put some extensions on. Hmm i was scared to look in the mirror but im sure the shots come out great! 
Shooting with the photographer was slightly intimidating as she was FANTASTIC, shes worked with Kate moss! and i just wanted to impress! But she was dead lovely and we got loads of good shots!
To wrap up the day i came back to my aunties and had a good scran and ate lots off food! and now chilling with family ! as i have a VERY busy week to come! Have castings tomorrow, 2 shots on Wednesday and possibly a shoot on Thursday which i hope will go ahead cause the guys is AMAZING!
Im sure ill have much to bitch about from my castings tomorrow haha! so ill do another blog!! Have a nice night guys :)

Long Weekend!

This weekend has been the most hectic weekend of my entire life. iv worked my skinny arse of working for 22hrs JUST AT WEEKEND! which for me is to much time! i feel like iv left work, to go sleep, just to wake back up and go back! I'm sick of the sight of it! But on a better note! wont be working until next saturday!

 I thought that cause it was my friends birthdays ill go to both there parties! and id be able to make them both! but finishing work at 10 did not help ONE BIT! waited for a taxi (WHICH WAS 20mins LATE), showered in the dark! cause all the lights in the bathroom have blown (We need a electrician) so that took longer then expected trying to find all my washing stuff haha!!, then got out the shower, to find there is not towels so running naked round my landing looking for my dressing gown. So it gets to about 11:00 and im just about ready! go down stairs grab my keys and my brother turns round and basically says 'your going out like that ?' which made me feel SHIT! so he decided to play dress up and made me him his invention which took AGES!! Finally go to one of my friends house's and everyone is outside, like drunk, and i felt pretty intimidated cause im a right softy when im sober so i couldn't be arsed speaking to all these drunks, so walked straight past them and find my friend and she tells me that the party at hers is cancelled where going into town! Get into town... SOBER AS A FLY no lie, most utter CRINGE moment ever. people you only ever speak to when ur drunk speaking to you, guys touching you, girls just being girls, and the whole situations just made me cringe so i decided to get a few drinks,
 Well! a few drinks turned into £60 worth, and i was Very drunk. put it this way im not going into to much depth cause ill sound like a fool! it consisted of SKANKING, more alcohol and SKANKING hahaha!!
So i leave about 4ish cause i have work at 9 the next morning :| Put it this way it was the worst shift of my life. HUNGOVER and totally unaware that it was fathers day! running around middlebrook on ur 15 min break trying to find something!! NOTHING AT ALL! until i go into a shop, and see the most beautiful, amazing diesel man bag!!
 I wanted it so i bought it! and it just happens u get aftershave with it !! soo BOOYAAAHH gave that to my dad!!! Im sat in bed falling asleep as i type im that tired, and i think iv wrote way to much to keep you all interested! But i have to be up tomorrow for 7 as im heading to london for 11:30 for a shoot!! Ill keep you updated

The fashion industry is a right B%*$h, and you come across photographers that are so rude and annoying, But recently i shot with a photographer named 'Marianne Paraskeva ' where do i start with her.... She was probably the best EVER person iv shot with ! the shoot was so enjoyable! and it was just AMAZING. As im a bolton boy i travelled down to lodon to shoot with this talent as i knew that she'd make my portfolio go BOOM ! and boy was i right! We started shooting about 1ish and didnt stop till about 10! we just got carried away! the MUA/Stylist was amazing too! I loved them both !! they was so creative ! it didnt feel like a shoot it just felt like chilling with friends!! It got wild! full on powder all over my face &body and trust me when i got home i still needed to scrub!! but the best shots come out when you get wild i guess! Can't wait for you guys to see them! just in post production at the moment!! but for time being Iv attached a few of the fashion images we did! but there is more to come!! We managed to get 4shoots into one DAY! so keep an eye out and check Marianne out on fb


 But this week he passed away, but with months of preparing it still tore my heart apart, and nothing felt like light would shine through, but after a few days of trying to come to terms with what happened i realized that the fight was over, i should be happy, that my YOUNGER cousin was not in anymore pain, it made me think i need to stop being so selfish and think about HIM! and that he is an angel now and that he's probably looking down laughing thinking why we being so crazy! But with all this happend iv come to the conclusion that there is going to be change in my life and that im going to chase my dream, not just for myself but for my cousin, my friend, and all the other people dying in the world who never had the chance to do what they wanted.
