“Hitting the Road, Jack…”

Once more for the people at the back: I AM NOT RETIRING FROM MODELLING YET- JUST MY BLOG. 😉

Find me here:

Dudes, dudesses and odd person from Pittsburgh who genuinely believes I am part of the Roswell Incident; I’ve been writing this blog for seven years and of all the things I’ve created, I am probably most proud of this one.
While maintaining this little corner of the internet, I went from being an assistant in an amazing hippy and pagan shop to becoming a full-time international model. This blog has seen two long term relationships end and one begin. It has seen me drastically change my modelling
journey twice- from alt and art-nude, to fetish, to the current fine-art, curvy fashion and femme fatale of today. I have written some of what I consider my best work, sparked an argument or two, *cough* Helmut Newton *cough*,  met some amazing people and helped put a serial rapist in prison. I get overwhelmed when I think about my long term relationship with this seven year project…

But this is sounding like a goodbye, isn’t it? 😉 That’s because it is.

Photographers, I promised I would give you at least a year’s notice before I hang up my Suitcase of Doom- this is not it. I’m not saying farewell to modelling but… at least for now… I’m taking off my blogging hat. I have so many other exciting projects I’m working on that I can no longer spend the time on this one.

I will still be writing guest posts on other industry blogs and posting regularly on my social media- I’ve linked the places you can find me below and I hope to see you there. ❤
I’m not taking the whole blog down- my old posts are here for anyone who wants to read them and I have linked some of the most popular ones below as well.

Thankyou from the bottom of my little black heart for all of the support and for sharing my posts. See you in another corner of the internet! 😉

I posed with a male model for the first time in YEARS and fortunately it’s my friend Darren S, who you should all book because he rocks. Photos by Tim Bosworth
I love the “American Horror Story” look of the last few- check out the crazy shadows!

I completed the “nude model seasonal rite of passage” this year. (Spring is bluebells, summer is rapeseed, autumn is leaves, winter is snow).

And finally…….. shots from the beyond multitalented and lovely Liv Free, who took the photos, made the big headdress, did my hair and made-up and edited the pictures. ❤

    Nooooo! I shall be sad to not read your adventures here.
    But it sounds like all kinds of exciting cool stuff is going on, so that’s good!
    I’ll have to stay in touch, that thing I told you about is definitely happening, just a little behind the current WIP. So looking forward to getting that one down though.
    Will still be on mine, when I next get a chance to update it, stop by some time! Otherwise, all the luck and awesome things your way!
    Thank you 🙂

      Lol! Thankyou- I’ll be updating my facebook and instagram accounts far more often and posting things there instead. Each blog here used to take me around two hours to post.

      And oooooh, that is very exciting! Good luck! 😀

      You are most welcome- I’ll still be active on my social media and of course my modelling portfolio. 🙂

    I will so miss hearing all about your adventures! Just followed you on Instagram. Hope to still hear your beautiful writing voice there too. Been a subscriber for a few years now, and I always looked forward to reading new posts via email. Best of luck in the upcoming chapters of your life story… you lovely, luscious creature!

      That is so lovely of you- thankyou so much! There is still so much I could and can write about so I am really hoping that I do some guest posts on other model blogs etc! 🙂
