The Best Things In Life Are Free.

Whilst at work today, I was working REALLY hard by flicking through old fashion magazines that someone had left behind.The kind owner of these magazines had left the free inserts of new beauty products;So as well as my wages,I also picked up a Neutrogena face wash.Result!!

I recently spent a happy couple of hours going through all of my old magazines (and I have a LOT),picking out the free samples I had left in them.I walked away with day and night creams,face serums, eye creams, lipgloss shades,shampoo,conditioner,hair mask, and hand lotions.Basically, half of Boots in one hand and all for FREE.I was really pleased with my beauty find and gave them all to my little sister,who was about to go to London for a while for her work.Rather than have her spend a small fortune,I managed to save her some money :)

(One of my best beauty finds-worth £10!)

So, I look forward in the future where I can gather some more freebies,maybe even enough for when the time comes in October for me to travel with my modelling work,as everything is now confirmed-its going to be one busy month!!

The Ice Dance.

So... the boy took me ice skating for the first time yesterday.As a ice hockey nut,he can skate backwards and generally look at ease. After introducing a Vulcan Death Grip on his hand and promising me he wouldnt let go, I actually enjoyed myself.And didnt fall over,which was a result, as I was wearing my nice new jeans.

Anyways, I know he'll read this, so thats all for now.

Speaking of ice, the chilly weather is making me yern for chunky knit jumpers, boots and thick tights (100 dernier all the way!) If the weather is anything like it was last winter; where the snow cut off general day- to day- life for six weeks- I was moving 1ft of snow every day from my drive- then Im rocking the Eskimo look this winter.Warmth rules over fashion anyday.

New.You're So New.

Has it really been May since I last blogged? I do apoligize, but for those in the know,I have been slightly busy.

Since my last post, Ive taken the plunge and opened up a cafe with my Mum,called Vintage Cafe.11 weeks in,its proving to be one hell of a ride and its opened up my eyes to the world of business.Since opening,I dream about cakes (not in a good way), get OCD with colour coded boards and chopping knives (Cheers for that,Environmental health) and have dozens-yes,literally- of window cleaners,trying to charm me for their trade. I never knew there was a ongoing turf war with window cleaners.Its very enjoyable,and it seemed the next natural step to feed my cake addiction. Yum.

(This is me on a daily basis.)

Due to the cafe taking over my life at the moment whilst we find our feet, the floristry has been put on the back burner at the moment.However, I am still providing arrangements for corporate events and customers, and since we have a spare room in the back of the cafe, this has become my floral studio workshop, where I create and store the arrangements.The advantage of this is being in a larger workspace,and the odd occasion of creating some quick floral arrangements for some cafe customers- I spruced up a wrap of Chrysanths for a regular recently which she loved and appricated.

(As I didnt take a photo of my work as it was so quick,this was taken when I was in London.In Topshop. Also known as Heaven.)

The fashion stuff is going really well too.I have mental moments when Im doing five shows in one month, and then two months off, then back doing fashion shoots again.I do love it, and my love for fashion has grown even more (however, I do prefer having the extra ten minutes in bed rather than putting an outfit together and my love of Carrot cake can be a bit of a problem when I have to squeeze into some shorts for a shoot.....) This past week alone,Ive been offered two amazing opportunites regarding fashion stuff, so we'll see what comes of that :)  
(Circus shoot by Goldielocks and Cupid and A Polaroid Dream)

One more thing.And this will shock people who know me and my ways.I have met someone.

And hes a boy.

And hes lovely.

And I know he'll read this,so thats all for now.

Since my life has changed massively since my last post, Im also thinking about changing the style of the blog,into a general artsy,fashiony,waffly thing that just grows and grows with my endless babbling.And the odd photo. we'll see.
