The strength of the earth

28 Dec

I’m on holiday! I’m enjoying it. :) I’ve been eating all sorts of Christmas crap, having marathon ‘Lie To Me’ sessions, cuddling my cat and planning my projects for next year. I’m getting a bit restless actually so am about to start making new outfits for shoots and looking into my next career…

I’ve also been sent so many images and tearsheets recently- I’ll post them one at a time. :)

My recent article (about the ins and outs of latex) in Rebelicious magazine features photos of me in some seriously awesome latex. (Credits on the page) :D

Rebelicious Magazine Issue 1016

I’ve also had images back from one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever shot in! During last year’s South Coast tour (I’ll be back in the area from March 12th-26th), I worked with Imagesse. He sent me some images from the various locations in advance of the shoot so I was very excited about it.
It was freezing so I spent most of the morning running around in naked circles to warm up before climbing around rocks, watched by perplexed sheep. After a lunch break (and a few minutes spoiling some friendly ponies), the sun came out and we climbed down into the valley amid gnarled trees like little moss-covered Ents (Lord of the Rings), toward a stream with stepping stones. As the sun shone through the tree line, I saw the tiniest rope swing. What an amazing thing to be able to visit the place and fly through the air whenever I fancied! One day…

Coincidentally, I was watching Sherlock the other day and could have sworn they filmed at one of the same locations! (It’s the episode called ‘Hounds of Baskerville’ if you’re interested. It’s a great show!)

Anyway, if a picture really is worth one thousand words, I’ll stop waffling and show you these… ;)

And this one’s more of an outtake, but I quite like it! I think it was part of my “get warm” dance routine, lol!

While I enjoy improving my flexibility, I do love shots where I’m curled up on things. :)

Keep an eye out for my next blog- I learned a lot this year, did a lot, and am excited about my plans for 2013. You can even be part of them! As I say… keep watching and subscribe by clicking on the link at the right if you’d like an automatic update! ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I’ll speak to you very soon,

p.s. To the very kind fans who bought me a gift from my Amazon wishlist, thankyou so, so much. It means a lot to me that you thought of me this Christmas. I’m looking forward to reading the books and wearing the clothes, which you’ll see very soon. :)

Backward thinking

17 Dec

It seems as though it was only a few days ago I was running around among Autumn leaves in as many countries as I could reach! Now that it’s winter, the sunsets are always amazing- as if the weather is trying to make up for the fact that we’re all so cold! I don’t mind the cold so much (especially as I’ve booked some time off modelling and can curl up in front of the fire) but the nights are a bit too short for me. I’m looking forward to Spring shoots already…

I have some fantastic travel planned for next year – you can keep an eye on my diary on the temporary page I’ve just added at the top next to my “About the Girl” page. ;)

The last one is a bit of an outtake- the wind blew my skirt up and I couldn’t keep it down! Every single time I lifted my hands, the wind started again and eventually we gave up! :D

As I need to go and pack for my last two shoots of the year (!) I’m off now. Speak to you soon!

p.s. If you’re feeling extra Christmas Spirit-y, I have an Amazon wishlist here. I send a return gift to anyone kind enough to buy me a present! :)

Living for two.

10 Dec

Today is the anniversary of the death of my best friend.

I  cannot describe how  much beauty the world lost in her, but I’ll try: She was one of the most beautiful, compassionate people I have ever known- happy to share in others joy but feeling pain just as deeply. She was utterly obsessed with Westlife which I teased her mercilessly about- (as much as she did to me for my Axl Rose crush)! I’m not sure we had ever been strangers; within a minute of meeting it was as if we had known each other all our lives. She had a stutter that disappeared completely when she sang and I think anyone who knew her could listen to her sing for hours. She cooked amazing scrambled egg and her Dolly Parton impression had me in stitches on the floor. Her future plans were never truly formed- though she considered being a herbal therapist, most of the time she just wanted to get through the day.
I think I knew from quite early on, that I would not be able to keep her in this world no matter how hard I tried, and on this day, aged 14 she killed herself.

You cannot solely blame one person, or even a group of people, for the death of someone who died by their own hand, but I believe that had she not been tormented every day, every hour (literally, and including being told to kill herself) by sick, cruel, overprivileged bullies, she may still be alive today. Rather than dwell on this, I try to make my success my revenge and every day that I find myself faltering, I remind myself that I am living for two and need to do this. I must succeed, for the world must one day hear what I have to say.

I was thinking about her this morning as I set up my writing notes and looked out of the window at the sparrows investigating the food I’d left out for  them. I believe in reincarnation to an extent (the breaking down of cells and sharing of atoms etc), and was then reminded quite suddenly, that part of her may have been in them.

Putting feelers out…

6 Dec

Hello! Happy December to everyone! :D

I’m keeping the promise I made to myself three years ago- that one day, I would look forward to Christmas again. Well, I have bought a lovely hummingbird tree decoration, am watching the robins bounce around my feeders and am actually getting excited when I hear my favourite Christmas songs. I’m also up to my ears in craft stuff as this year’s family policy is “make, bake, sew or grow”. ;)

Okay, winter stuff over…..

Photographers (and fellow models), listen up!

I’m considering renting a little villa, apartment or hotel room somewhere lovely and sunny for a week in January or February. My plan will be that it is spacious and bright enough to shoot in (I’m available for fetish, nude, boudoir, fashion, beauty etc etc…) and in easy distance of nice locations in which to shoot too. Other models, if you’re interested in sharing/shooting with me, get in touch.

Photographers, you’d be flying to the area and staying nearby (If I get enough interest, I’ll put together a list of local hotels/B+Bs)
Now, there are flights to Venice, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon etc for around £30 and it’s off-season so hotels shouldn’t be crazy expensive, so this should be do-able in theory.
Estimated rates are about £180 for a half-day and £280 for a full day, but this is not set in stone yet-0 I need to do a little more research.

If anyone is interested in this idea, get in touch asap so I can get an idea of whether I can this could work or not. :)

I’ll leave you with some of my favourite shots of me in warm and sunny places (even if they don’t look so warm, lol!)
