Travelling Light…

12 May

Berlin, here I come! I’m off again for a few days celebrating German Fetish Weekend with my ‘industry family’. It’s one of the only chances I get to see people all together as we all live in different countries. (The other time is Dominatrix, in Holland).
I haven’t been for years but have always had a good time… and always seem to model in pink! I’m walking in the show for Ardita Fetish Fashion so am looking forward to seeing what she’s made for me. Maybe she’ll break the ‘pink streak’? ;)
I also just heard the lovely news- thankyou so much to all my fans and voters, I am shortlisted for the award of Fetish Model of the Year 2015!

Left: My first GFB, walking for HMSlatex. I’m at 5:10 and 7:02  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WI5R93o50k
Right: Walking for Am Statik, with Luna Eve. We’re at 2:57  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgFVwlM3MiY

For possibly the first time ever, I’m just going to have fun- I haven’t booked any work so that I have total freedom to explore, party and picnic in the Tiergarten (with the resident goshawks, fingers crossed!) This means I’m not dragging the 30kg purple suitcase of doom- hoorah!

I’ve only had a home for just under a year. Before I moved onto my boat, I lived on friends floors, in hostels and the occasional hotel- which I thought was going to be a dream come true! I’m good at travelling, used to sleeping on airport floors and very resourceful. Oh, and I love adventures. The idea of a nomadic lifestyle while enjoying a creative job sounded amazing (and still does if you haven’t factored certain things in…) What hadn’t occured to me was the baggage I’d be taking along. Modelling is my full time job, so I almost always have the purple suitcase of doom attached to my right hand.
There is a huge difference between backpacking all over the world with total freedom to travel and the occasional paying job to keep you going, and constantly moving from hostel to hostel carrying baggage that must not go astray. That heavy weight on my body began to feel like mental weight too and I was sick of it all very quickly. Now, I’m making time to travel without restrictons and excess baggage, so am taking my favoutite latex, some snacks… and that’s it.
I’m also going to Switzerland in July and staying in a hippy/artist commune between shoots. <3

In a total contrast- earlier this year, I shot with Luci-Alice in a gorgeous hotel. I think I look like a fashionable Bond villain here- it seems to be a common theme with me, lol! :D

I’m modelling Kaori’s Latex Dreams and just LOVE the shoulders on the top!

I have a monster to-do list today and would like to get it all done before sunset so I’m going to sign off now. ;) Thankyou again for your sheer awesomeness.
If you’d like to continue supporting me, please pretty please keep voting for me- I’d love to win a latex catsuit!
Just follow the link and very quick instructions: http://www.latex.at/en/all-models-voting/?id=187

Golden Fire

2 May

How fitting that I should choose this title just as the “golden crown scene” in Game of Thrones came on! (If you haven’t seen it, a whingy annoying man gets the crown he wants in the form of molten gold poured on his head. :P
Here’s a behind-the-scenes of me wearing a much nicer crown I made myself:
WP_20140216_005
It was Beltane yesterday and I have spent most of the last few days with friends and cake, exploring the outdoors. The name means “bright fire” and it’s a pagan festival a bit like Valentine’s Day in the sense that couples can pledge to each other and celebrate the union between the green man and goddess (blossom and thorns, male and female entities etc). You can read a bit about the festival here, if you’re interested. Next year, you’d find me bouncing around the enormous fire in Glastonbury with any friends who want to come.
If you can’t wait that long and would like to see me dancing around some standing stones, why not look at the rest of this Zivity set, called “Neolithic”?
The photographer is Andrew Shiels and the pictures were taken in Ireland.
You just need to click here and if you aren’t a member, it’s only about $3 to see the whole set- hooray! :)

Today is apparently Naked Gardening Day! Seriously, I’m not joking. As the sky is grey and very unappetising, I don’t think I’ll go out and prune the roses. Also, I don’t have roses. Or a garden. :P I do have a photo of me naked in a garden though.

PHOTOGRAPHERS: 
I’m planning my travel this year and am going to be all over the place- visiting some countries for the first time ever!
My travel plans are on my portfolio here: http://purpleport.com/portfolio/roswellivory but here are some future plans. If you’ve like to be kept updated, get in touch ASAP as I plan my travel several months in advance and book up quickly!
July: Scotland, then Switzerland (almost fully booked but get in contact to be updated about a possible Autumn trip)
August: Scandinavia tour: Denmark, Sweden, Norway
September: South Coast and Isle of Wight visit

I’ve only shared one or two of these photos so far, but I’ve had this set back from KinkyStyle, in a stunning designer apartment in Belgium. My beautiful gold dress is by Yummy Gummy and if you like these, you’ll LOVE our next photoshoot.

I’m off to prepare for another photoshoot tomorrow with Luci Alice, and a beautiful Croatian model friend- and to continue with a new writing project.

Take care and have fun, whatever you are doing today!

P.S. Sadly, due to cheating(!) the votes for all models in the latex catsuit competition have been set back to zero. This means all the votes you kindly collected for me are gone. :(
Could you please take the time to vote for me again? It only takes a minute and I’d really appreciate the suppprt. Thankyou so much. <3

A Day Off…

27 Apr

I’ve had a day off today-  a proper one and my first in ages!! :D

I started by finishing my book in bed (The Wind in the Willows), then explored an area of the riverside I’d never seen before and found some very interesting things in the water! I hate taking my phone with me but it is a necessity for documenting my wildlife findings. :)
A date with three lovely men later (Ben, Jerry and ‘Constantine’) and I spent the rest of the afternoon cooking and making props for tomorrow’s shoot with the lovely Emma-Jane. You may have already seen some of our work together:

I just had to update you all with the latest, as I’m mostly going offline for the next few days in order to shoot and submit an entry to a very exciting writing competition- the prize for which is a trip to Antarctica! Wish me luck please. ;)

Talking of luck, the competition I entered to win a latex catsuit has been reset. Apparently some models were cheating!!! Horrid, I know, so the judges decided it was best to reset everyone back to zero. Could you please take the time to vote again? The instructions are below:
1) Go to this link: http://www.latex.at/en/all-models-voting/?id=187
2) Click “vote for this model”.
3) Enter your email (which will NOT be used for promotion or advertising messages)
4) Log into your email and click the confirming link.
5) Accept my thanks for your support. :)

As it’s an early start tomorrow, I’m going to log off, jump in the shower and curl up in bed, leaving you with these beautiful pictures from photographer Eleanor Marie. Long rust-coloured dress by Falcieri. Black girdle dress by Playful Promises.

Did I mention she’s also a model? :)

Goodnight, everyone! I hope you all have a great week, whatever you are doing.

Against the railings and on the steps

21 Apr

Hey hey!

Have you voted today? If not, the link is here and I’d really appreciate your help- you can vote every 24 hours to help me win a latex catsuit! http://www.latex.at/en/all-models-voting/?id=187

Maybe like this one? ;) A ‘Golden oldie’ from one of my first events! (catsuit by Libidex) I just love the colour. :)

Ahem…

Anyway… a bigger vote is coming. Not quite as pretty as my catsuit but still, quite interesting. So have you registered? (UK people, that is!) If you haven’t, it’s too bloody late as the deadline was yesterday. :P
I have friends who are anti-voting and politics. I’m not a fan of many of the parties either, but I always vote. Firstly because women died so that I have that right, but secondly so that my vote, no matter how trivial, will be one more little cross in a box that counts against any party I really detest- one tiny step between the parties I hate and 10 Downing Street.
A close friend used South Park to explain why he did not intend to vote. I haven’t seen the episode but apparently it goes like this:
1) The South Park kids have to vote on a new school mascot. The choice is between a douche and a turd sandwich (ah,  South Park…) ;)
2) Stan refuses to vote as he doesn’t see a difference between the two. He wants them to lose equally.
3) Something involving PETA and a cow.

Well, okay, the UK are in a bit of a confused position politically and many people here don’t see a difference between the parties BUT… there is more going on that “choose this idiot or choose that idiot”. There are the idiots in between *cough* UKIP *cough* that started as jokes but will gain more power each time someone does not vote against them. There are the frightening idiots like the BNP who have gained seats in Parliament. (Yes, they are there no longer but that fact that they managed once already is worrying). Each time somebody refuses to vote against them, they gain a fraction more power.
When the voting is over and one party has come out on top, the other MPs don’t go home and twiddle their thumbs- they take seats in parliament according to the proportion they were given in the general election! ‘My’ party may not win 10 Downing Street, but maybe they will win a few more seats. Maybe they will be able to make it a little harder for policies I don’t like to become law.

So, of course I’m going to go and dutifully put my little cross in the box. It may well do nothing, but you have to enter a battle to have a chance at winning it.

I’m not exactly chained to railings here but I being all powerful and womanly on the steps of a stunning building in Gothenburg, and with my beautiful friend Belinda Bartzner taking my picture. I’ve waited so long to post these- they appeared in Sinical Europe 2015, which features just six international fetish and pin-up models, so I was very honoured to be counted among them.

Beauty in Shadow

14 Apr

I’m back from a lovely sunny few days in Somerset with Anita De Bauch and am now sitting down to catch up on my emails and organise my next tours, which will be Berlin, Ireland, Manchester and Norfolk.

First though, I’d really appreciate your support with a couple of things I’m doing. Pay attention at the back there! :P
1) I’m in a competition to win a custom-made latex catsuit!! (As you may guess, this is something I would love to have.)
All you need to do is click the link here and click ‘vote’. That’s all. No signing up to anything.
http://www.latex.at/en/all-models-voting/?id=187

2) I’m in the running for the award of “Fetish Model of the Year”! If you could please follow the link here and vote me as highly as you think I deserve, that would rock as well! It’s a little less user-friendly- you need to cycle through the pictures, which are displayed at random, but the plus point is that you get to see more beautiful ladies.
http://www.european-fetish-awards.com/fetish-model-of-the-year-2015/

There you go! Any help would be appreciated.
________________________________________________________________________________

So, as the days are getting ever-so-light now, I struggle with conflicting wants and wishes! On one hand, I love the clouded days in which I write with a mocha nearby. On the other hand, I sit on my roof and watch the world go by on sunny days. It’s only then that I can truly get to know the creatures and life around me- and on that note, Mr Toots the kingfisher is back! Apparently he returns on bright days so I’m staking out the bank.

Somerset rolled with the hills, caves and gorges we lack in Milton Keynes and apart from seeing one of my best friends “in her natural habitat”, it was a relief to finally shoot outdoors again without fear that I’d freeze to death! So many lambs everywhere, lovely food, kind people- and we found a slow worm in the garden. Look at her little face!
WP_20150410_18_17_33_Pro
Anita christened her ‘Fern’ and I added ‘The Turbo Snake’- in case she has a complex about being a slow worm. (They are neither slow nor worms- they’re legless lizards.) ;)

I also saw pipistrelle bats flittering around at dusk! I couldn’t capture them on my slow phone, but it’s lovely to see them again after what has felt like a long winter. They’re the smallest found in Europe and a friend of mine used to call me a pipistrelle when I was a thirteen year old Goth…  a teeny tiny little bat. Ha ha ha!

Another thing I’m noticing more and more is that the sunsets are drawing out and are even more orange. Despite the Spring frolicking I’m doing at the moment, I can’t help but think it would be perfect for a Film Noir shoot or two in London, or maybe a Milton Keynes underpass. (Just a quick snap taken outside Wagamama…)

I love the moodiness and atmosphere of Film Noir shoots! I shot these back in January with David Morley, in Saracen House studio.

A lot of you have been asking about the petition results from my blog “Between My Legs”. Sadly, petitions about Jeremy Clarkson were more popular and now that the general election is upon us, politicians have better things to do- like bitch and moan at each other on National television… I’ll blog properly about the wider issue when I have a little more time, but I promise this is not forgotten.

So, for now I am going to enjoy the light and practise not feeling guilty for being out in the sun. We humans do need our sunlight hours, after all. And when the shadows lengthen, I’ll write my little socks off (when I’m not stretching, that is. I can get my foot under my chin now!)
These were taken by Simon P Shaw last year, in Blackbarn studio and perfectly capture the peaceful kind of darkness.

I’ll leave you with some lessons learned in one of my favourite childrens’ books. A sticker for guessing which! ;)
Dark is: exciting, kind, fun, necessary, fascinating, wonderful, beautiful.

Until sunrise, people!

p.s. I just got a message from another of my best friends- the olive-skinned gypsy nude model Madame Bink. I’d like to share her blogpost with you- please have a read and see if you can make her smile today.
