So why write this post (it's not very British is it?) and why now?
Dinner at the Fifth Floor Cafe in Harvey Nichols followed by a stay at The Royal Garden Hotel and lunch with friends at The Rosewood the next day, is my kind of London break thank you very much, and it's ju...
My love for filmmaking and being in front of the camera is pretty INTENSE. I just love the buzz of it. Of connecting! Always have, always will. I was making videos on a VHS camera my Dad would hire from a young age!
Having spent my twenties working in the film business as an award-winning director, I'm a complete and utter movie buff! I love nothing more than losing myself in a good film - especially one that means th...
I reckon I might just be a bit of a Peter Pan ( why there isn't a female equivalent to the youth-chasing PP I don't know, but that surely requires a whole other post)- essentially my point is, I refuse to GROW UP or more so, I don't feel that different from the 21 year old girl I was erm, (Googles a calculator)-14 years ago (case in point)- despite two kids and 2 c-sections (ouch) and cement thick concealer to hide my my eye bags.
Recently my husband and close friends have informed me that I'm too nice! A back-handed compliment if ever there was one right?! Too nice? Am I too nice?!
The Cannes Film Festival always proves to be the most gloriously glamorous whirlwind of a break! My 5th time attending, every festival, honestly- and somewhat miraculously (as every year is sooo flipping good)- seems to beat the rest.
Life can be a little bit surreal at times and in some respects it can feel, well, a little bit full circle. I know I'm being ambiguous but bare with me... On Thursday night I attended the film première of Eddie the Eagle, a movie made by Lionsgate UK, a company I used to work for.
A lot of people keep mentioning 'success' to me lately, some kindly comment that they feel I'm successful- and while that's flattering, it's made me question how I personally deem and measure success.
Can we take a minute to talk money.
Slasher careers are on the rise. You might well be a slasher yourself. I know I definitely am.
Tuesday night saw me attend the opening night of 'The Girls' at the Grand Theatre in Leeds.
Recently I was invited to film with popular BBC presenter Mark Watson but with a frustrating clash of dates, I just couldn't make it to London for the shoot day- so did want any vlogger worth her salt would do, and vlogged a piece directly to Mark.
So after a lot of thought and deliberation, and undoubtedly wanting to utilise my skills as a director, I now bring you daily vlogs on my YouTube channel!
It's so easy in life to be constantly chasing dreams, and believe me, I'm a big believer in dreaming big, working hard, and simply going for 'it' whatever 'it' might be, but recently I've had a little shift in thinking...
I'm a pro-blogger yes, but also an award winning filmmaker and TV director, having made TV drama, documentary, short films, commercials and music videos in my time (you can see my website here).
Bonjour mes amis, I'm excitingly off to the Cannes Film Festival for a long weekend away and I simply cannot wait.
