A day out with 'The london Model'

If I'm honest, Danni and I woke up yesterday completely hungover from a night out at Soho House having polished off way too many lychee martinis (which are insanly awesome btw).
It was almost 2 o'clock by the time we left the flat, but my did we have a lot to fit in. 
I thought I'd stalk her a little..


The first stop was Parsons Green tube.
As we were late getting up and out,, we thought it best to bring the lovely Bobo along for an adventure across London.
She loves the tube and settled in straight away, lapping up attention and milking every moment.


We're both having a little Fire Trap fetish at the moment but here's what she's wearing.
Top: Fire Trap
Skirt: Firetrap
Boots: Zara
Bag:: knomo



We headed to a hair casting, as you can tell, she rocks a pretty rad style.
The stylist played around a little and did the usual casting shot. They were talking contracts by the end so I think she's a sure thing for this one.





We bumped into some friends before heading to Chelsea for... more hair things; Bobo enjoying every moment of it.









No I wasn't kidding.
Danni's style is so unique that EVERYone wants a piece of her hair. This time it was just a few touch ups for a shoot next week.
I'm not sure if it was Danni or Bobo that enjoyed the hairdressers more. I mean come on, there were endless amounts of oo's and ahh's for Bobo all afternnon.




 We spent the evening watching meaningless tv and munching. By this point we were both ready to crash.
Make sure you check out Danni's Tumblr http://thelondonmodel.tumblr.com/. I think you'll find it a VERY interesting distraction from your day.

QVC

Until recently, I had never thought much about the girls that worked as live models on the makeup channel. I never really appreciated the way they effortlessly smiled into the lens and applied makeup on camera or the way they carried themselves through what could potentially be an embarrassing experience on live TV.
Well ladies and gentlemen that has ALL changed. 



 I have worked for the brand Dalton on QVC every three months for the past year and whilst I found it initially weird and uncomfortable, I now enjoy every minute of it.

Fasion Night Out

Once a year the roads on Bond street close, the shops stay open and the champagne flows as celebrities, bloggers, films crews and fashionistas flood the street to take part in the ever glamorous Fasion Night Out.
I went with the lovely Danni Menzies of Fashion TV. This meant we had a hectic few hours scrambling between each of the designer shops, hastily grabbing interviews and posing for pics whilst casually sipping champagne and searching for the most important thing; goodie bags!


  
Our first stop was Apsinal and after bumping into a the one and only miss Caggie Dunlop we were treated to some lovely gits. 






Our next stop was Tiffany's and oh my we had a glorious time there. 



Sadly I didn't take many pics from the evening out as we spent most of the time filming but suffice to say the whole thing turned into a rather hectic party with us finally regrouping at Mahiki to boogie the rest of the night away. 



Both our dresses were from the lovely people at Fire trap. Make sure you check them out as I'm sure you'll find something to tickle your fancy. 



Did anyone else enjoy the party? Where did you all go? Favourite gift? x

Peep Show!

So last week I worked on Peep show. I say this casually but what really went through my mind after receiving the call was OMFG lakdlakdjlakjd!!!!
Although this job meant a 5 am alarm, it was one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences of my life. Just sitting next to David in the makeup chair making light chitchat about the quality of the breakfast was hilarious and I struggled to contain myself throughout the day's shooting.



The most interesting thing about Peep show is the way it is filmed. I've become accustomed to dramas and films which are all filmed with several cameras from one angle and then repeated til you get the necessary close ups, long shots, etc from each position. 
The number one rule of acting is to never look down the lens as this obviously gives the game away to the audience. Peep show flips this idea on its head. 
It is filmed from the point of view (POV) of each of the cast so when you're filming you need to stare directly into the lens as if you're looking at the actor. 
The scenes is then filmed several time from each actors POV with the obligatory close ups filmed too. 
It is all done by a hand held camera with the actual actor yelling their lines from behind the camera which makes it a lot speedier than most productions.  







I'm not allowed to say what we actually filmed but suffice to say it was hilarious and David had the crew, cast and extras in hysterics all morning. Sadly I felt embarrassed to outwardly ask David or any of the other mains for a picture (SUCH AN IDIOT I KNOW) so you'll have to be satisfied by my weirdly stalker-like pictures and boring behind the scenes shots. SORRY
