Cheated Hearts- the sequel

Here's the rest of the Cheated Hearts shoot! The full interview (and some other pictures) are here.

I forgot to mention before that the Garbelle jacket is the one that Cyrena made for me for my birthday. You should have heard me when I opened it, I SQUEALED.

I love doing photo shoots with the boy because it's so quick and easy. This whole shoot took an hour and thats including hair and makeup. I have some shoots that we did a couple of years ago stored on my hard drive so I'm gonna dig them out and post them for you.

I was completely inspired by the hair on Alexander Wang's runway. I think this is from the spring 2010 show.

I totally stole that look for the Cheated Hearts shoot. It's super easy to do. I just clipped in some hair extensions and braided! The great thing about this is that you don't even need to worry about really blending the extensions or where you clip them because you'll be braiding them anyway. Have a go :)

The lovely Cyrena and Gemma run an online magazine: Cheated Hearts. It's great. You'll love it :) I did an interview with them that will be up soon and today me and the boy did some pictures to go with it. This is just a sneaky peek because the full shoot will premiere on Cheated Hearts later on this week. I'll let you know when it's up of course!

The Book of Eli

I fricking LOVED this movie. I'm not going to go into plot because that's not what this post is about but I will talk about style...

Solara (played by Mila Kunis) looks awesome. She is rocking a look that I like to call: 'Apocalyptic Courtney Love Olsen Twin'.

I came out of the cinema mentally scanning my wardrobe because I plan to try this look out over the next few days (but not to any of my auditions because I don't want to scare people).

I tried desperately to find a clear full length shot for y'all but alas. You'll just have to go and see the film for yourself.... and it's really good so you'll be glad you did.

The waist length hair, the smudgy black eyes, the men's plaid shirt, the dusty black jeans, the aviators and satchel.... I love it all. Add a pair of burberry boots and then it would be beyond perfect.

Ok so apart from Solara's costume I also actaully laughed out loud with joy when I saw Frances de la Tour and Michael Gambon in this scene...

When the scene ended I leaned over to my boy and whispered "Pinter"... "yuh huh" he replied.

Skeleton

A friend was trying out some of his new music at a open mic night so we ventured out into the cold to support him. It was at a pub in Leicester Square that was full of tourists. I haven't been in one of those since I was a teenager. We still had a fun. It's not where you are, it's who you are with.

Make it stack

Happy New Year!

Nobody took their camera out with them on new year's eve so I've only got grainy crackberry pics to show you. I had sworn that I wasn't going to go out this year but eventually I gave in and just accepted the inevitable. I had to make a mad last minute dash to my local american apparel to get something to wear.

It turned out to be a very fun night. We ended up at Bungalow 8 where there was a casino themed party. We danced on tables throwing (fake) $100 bills and casino chips around. So classy ;)

My entire outfit is American Apparel...I should consider asking for sponsorship. The shoes were black Loubs. I finally got to give my Chanel Maniac lipstick a night out and it's my opinion that it made the outfit and the evening as a whole even better.
