Yesterday was the worst day of all days in the past 2 months in terms of weather! It has been hot and sunny and not rainy for the past 2 months. But yesterday it hit us with everything Rain, Wind and even a little hail.

I woke up knowing that i had to go to the passport office which by the way was so easy and quick, unlike the American Bureaucracy where you have to sit for hours and wait. I was there for all of 20 minutes! Anyway I got a text when i woke asking me if i wanted to do a shoot on the heath so after a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and where-is-it-gonna-be-ing we scheduled to meet after the passport office. As i get off the underground to its starts to gently rain (deep breath) and i walk up to the Band-stand where the models and photographer were standing and waiting for me. It was a covered area but there were no walls so the wind was howling and the poor girls weren’t really wearing much so they were shivering. As we start to do the make up the wind picks up and it starts raining really hard and its freezing so we pack up and go to the cafe. They then kicked us out even thought we bought drinks so we had to go do our preps outside!! It stopped raining and the sun threatened to come out. we managed to finish without getting totally wet just a little wet!

That is a little insight on what models and their teams go through to look beautiful and make the perfect picture. So no its not easy being anyone in the Fashion industry.

Keep warm and happy

Yay so exciting!!! I have decided to try my hand at youtube makeup tutorials!
I have been working hard at making my first one which is going to be a simple easy tutorial. I am still getting the hang of doing it so its gonna take time until the actual tutorials are perfect which is ultimately what I want and im sure you want.
I need to figure out which camera will work but for the moment I am using the webcam on my lap top. i guess there will be many different ways to video but i will start with this!
When my first one comes out i would really love some feedback on what u thought of it and Im looking forward to posting it!

Wish me luck
