I got my fifth tattoo today in honour of my little god daughter Ava Rae. So painful though. My tattoo artist has done all five of my tattoo's and she's brilliant. You can check out Tarns Facebook Page here.

The Lake

These were taken at 6am at Body and Soul festival they have a bit of an eerie feel to them. The lake was so calm and the festival was almost silent. We just sat there completely still, transfixed by the mist and mirrored reflection of the trees in the water.

You can hype this look here on Lookbook.

Hmm this post lacks in structure slightly but I had nowhere to fit these snaps in. The wireworks were to mark the end of the Paralympics (I Think), they looked amazing anyway. After the fashion show there was some celebrating to be done. I wore a cashmere black jumper dress given to me by my stepmum and I love it despite it being a little big.

Backstage @ Charlie May S/S13'

Here are the results of all the hard work. The show took place in an old World War II bunker in The Stafford Wine Cellar. What a venue!! There was such an ethereal and serene feel to the collection even the models resembled angels. Theres was such a fun but relaxed atmosphere backstage...such a lovely team to work with.

LFW Preparation and Model Casting

The preparation work on the run up to fashion week was very busy hence the lack of blogging. I was mainly in Charlie's studio helping her with the finishing touches on the collection and carrying out errands. I also took part in the model casting, this was an exciting day as we were beginning to get an idea of the show was going to look. The models completely brought the clothes to life. The stylist Rebecca Sammon, who is also Fashion Editor of Used Magazine, had been round to the studio the day before to discuss how the collection would be styled. It was really interesting to see how she decisively worked each item of clothing making each one stand out as much as possible and giving an overall edgy look. The Make-up Artist Thom Ticklemouse messed around with make-up ideas; he played with bold geometric shapes above the eye to really make the simplicity of the S/S'13 collection come to life.

My 10 days in London have come to and end. This was definitely my best internship/work experience to date; I had so much fun, learned so much and met some really lovely people. I also had the chance to mingle with some of the UK's biggest fashion bloggers some to name Sandra from 5 Inch and Up, Susie Bubble from Style Bubble, Lexi from My Labyrinth, Micheal from Anastasia and Duck and of course Charlie from Girl a la Mode. I seriously suggest you check out these blogs if you haven't already. Sorry about the lack of blogging; no laptop or time. I will do a post on the preparation work leading up to Sundays show and also back stage pictures from the show. Kind of like backwards blogging. These photo's were taken by Charlie hope you like them.

Brick Lane & Spitalfields

So I spent my first weekend in London mooching about Shoreditch on my own. I visited the legendary Spitalfeilds Market and Bricklane; the mecca for all your vintage needs. It was such nice weather too, unfortunately no one was around to help me with an outfit post. I met a lovely guy who sold vintage sunglasses who pointed me in the right direction with regards to free events at London Fashion Week; not that I have any spare time to go to them. Blogging is a little difficult as I don't have my own computer but bare with me. I have been documenting all the prep for Sundays show and I will try and get that up tomorrow.
