Wild Thing

7 Feb

I’m getting itchy feet already- it’s a good thing I’m going adventuring again next week! I’ll be doing my famous tennis ball impersonation- zooming South, then North and back South again in just four days. Still- I’m pretty sure pictures and happiness will be forthcoming as I’m going to see Kitty Wood Photography– I have the honour of being one of her bridesmaids this year and couldn’t be more excited.

Blogwise, I can’t believe the response I had to my post about what models eat!! So many shares, so many comments! Thankyou all- and I have now updated the original post with the promised advice from Juliette at Bareskin Beauty. Click here to have a read, and I’ll be back with more modelly advice soon.
For now, I’m writing a mini series of articles about life on a boat for a fantastic feminist/life/opinion website. 😀 If there’s anything you would like to know, just comment with your question and I’ll make sure I answer it. I’m already covering narrowboat basics, decor for tiny spaces and more.
Despite the title of this post, I’m still feeling quite domesticated; spending my evenings toasting in front of the fire with a stack of books, or painting my doors at long last. At the moment, I’m in love with the artwork the band “Of Monsters and Men” use in their videos so I feel there will be wild things coming soon to a wall near me!
If you don’t know the band or haven’t seen the videos, links are below.

It makes me laugh that ‘domesticated’ for me is still kind of strange for a lot of other people- I still run around with no clothes on getting my picture taken and watch the world out of coach, train and plane windows. I still live in an indoor forest (which is swinging around like mad right now- the storm’s howling!)
On that note, I went to Sweden a while ago. I had a crack-of-dawn flight so pulled a coffee fuelled all-nighter in the airport. Awesome fellow fetish model Psylocke met me off the plane, introduced me to her cats and went for her photoshoot while I got reacquainted with Swedish sweets. One exciting text later and I was off to meet photographer Belinda Bartzner and see a musical about HP Lovecraft… in Swedish. Just so you know, “A Shoggoth on the Roof” rocks- and is pretty easy to understand even when you can only understand the word ‘tentacles’.
The next day (after some world-class sleeping and cat snuggling), Belinda and I worked together for the first time! (She’s since become a good friend so these pictures bring back happy memories).

I’m wearing a custom-made Dawnamatrix playsuit. 😀


Tomorrow, it’s boat-painting, email-answering and preparing for a pancake party with a goddess of cosplay! 😀

Bedtime now, I think. *eyes the stack of books excitedly*


p.s. this idiot I’m fluffbabysitting is asleep. His head is on my hand bouncing up and down as I type and he’s making a great table for my hairpins.

    Great link to the instagram blog. Its always interesting to see what happens off-cmaera (well…… kind off as there is still a camera nvolved) and the whole make-up-lessness thing. I am curious though what you are working through where the stack of books is concerned?

      Thankyou! It’s still a work in progress. 🙂
      A mass of HP Lovecraft, assorted crime books and some stuff about happiness mostly. 😀

        I missed every pancake party going this year. This will not do. I hope that yours was as great as it sounded beforehand that I may live vicariously once more.
        I also love the contrast between the utterly FIERCE Roswell wild leopard and the lesser spotted hairpin holder.

          LOL! It was a very good pancake party, hepled by the presence of kittens.

          HA HA HA! Yup. Mog is my fluffy idiot.
