His and Hers aka Jungle Fever

Cocktail Dress: Garbelle for Trainerspotter. Men's Shirt: Trainerspotter. Sunglasses:Rayban

This is another shoot from back in the day. Trainerspotter is a really cool british label that I have a lot of love for. I was nuts about this shirt from the moment I saw it. Those lovely (and very smart) boys saw how Cyrena was making hot dresses and gave her some of the same material.... The dress above is what she came up with. Genius. And it fitted me like a dream. She also made another dress with a sick hood attached but I'll save those pictures for another day.

I love how the shots for the dress are sassy and feminine and then the shots with the shirt have a rockerbilly vibe. The boy killed it with the lighting. It looks like it's the hottest day in the jungle ever when in fact it was bloody freezing in my back garden and you couldn't even see the sky through the clouds.

Um, how small is Oscar here!? Adorable!!!! 


It was his first photo shoot and he nailed it! God I miss my baby!

I'm in the middle of pilot season at the moment. I spend all day in my car going form audition to audition and then I come home and learn lines for the following day. It's hard work but there is something really satisfying about working towards something and chasing the dream. You gotta have a dream, right?


(Just saw that I finally made it to 100 followers. Thanks so much guys! It made so happy to see that! Mwah!)

Good Luck, Ashley. I am sending positive vibes your way regarding your auditions. Wow, it must tke a lot of talent remembering so many lines on a daily basis. Hey, was it difficult for you to get used to driving on the correct side of the road lol? I stayed in Cambridge, England for a while and I freaked out the few times that I had to drive on the wrong side of the rode. I mean, it's just second nature for me to automatically go to the right side of the rode.
Ashley, I actually like your dark hair better, but you look gorgeous either way.

A Valentine Sharing, Love to All:

--------------- jungle(soulful) love ---------------

harried hardcore hustle, bustle of croncrete jungle
can leave one feeling frazzled, stressing to cope -
yet, in spite of whatever, trials, and circumstances
there is ever cool comfort, reassurance, and hope.

as no matter, whatever, our life journeys may bring
there is means, yes, to rise ever transcendent above -
by meditation, reflection, seriously seeking our soul's
true nature - gloriously soaring upon its wings of love!

"Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."



- Lady Gaga, artist, the epitome of fresh.



"Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself."



- Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist monk, teacher and author.



"Most of us serve our ideals by fits and starts. The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication."



- Cecil B. De Mille, legendary film director and producer - legendary!



"Listen to me when I say that the sacrifices you make for your dreams are like making HUGE deposits in your Universal savings account. What you give up to live your best life is delivered to you later in the form of dreams fulfilled. Sacrifice mediocre desires for your dreams!"

Actually I really like the way this bustier shape perfectly emphasizes your bare shoulders' Sensuality . . . while these so prettily creative colorful prints tend to instil such a refreshing/mischievous twist on it !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine

...oops, another frustratingly, seemingly typical typo above, as well as some ridiculous spacing (dunno how that happened?,lol), as not really aesthetically pleasing to the eye. please delete, and thanks?! :)
