Going on holiday and the proceeding weeks (not my usual regular shoot after shoot kind of weeks) have led me to a realisation, somewhat of a (hair) epiphany, if you like.
I LOVE my locks WILD like my spirit!
So we've been in Cannes for the last week after a blissful 6 days in Avignon where we're returning on Thursday-and it must be said, holidaying by the coast with my kids is totally different to my usual champagne-fuelled film festival shenanigans (naturally)- but it's been just as awesome (despite the constant urge to get booty shaking by night)!
It's not often you receive an invitation to attend a premiere at Kensington Palace and yet that's exactly what happened to me just last week. A blogger's life is never short of surprises that is for sure!
I know what you're thinking, dramatic title right? But it's true, I pretty much hate myself during PMT time which can be anything from 1 day (lucky) to 1 week or more (un-freaking-lucky) so I'm writing this from one honest mama to another because if you're suffering too and hate yourself when it's that time of the month, you're not alone because I am too.
A few weeks ago saw me head down to London for a photo shoot with celebrity photographer Joseph Sinclair.
I have some exciting collabs and speaking engagements scheduled over the coming months so was in need of some new shots for PR materials and both of my blogs, so this was the perfect time to shoot.
If I'm honest, I'm not really sure know where to start with my time at the Cannes Film Festival this year, it was such a wonderful whirlwind of a weekend from start to finish, I almost felt as if I was in a movie myself, a rom com meets cool European film, set in the Cote d'Azur where a group of friends have the time of their lives and appreciate every second. Now there's a film I should write!
You know those times when you literally have to pinch yourself at how exciting and rewarding your job is, (and I'm so grateful too), well looking back on my day at George Northwood's salon, was really one of those days.
Rules, rules, rules. I get it, many, many rules when it comes to creativity, be it screenwriting to blogging and beyond, are incredibly useful for insight, guidance and inspiration but rules, my friends were made to be broken.
PinterestLondon is always a whirlwind for me, and last Wednesday was no exception.
Taking my Mum along for a rare night away and quite the party (more of that soon), I had some exciting meetings by day (as always, I'll reveal more when I can)- as we made our way through chic coffee shops in Farringdon to the place I call home in the city, Charlotte Street Hotel, a bustling yet relaxing hub where meetings can turn to dinner easily, and being so close to Soho and the production company I have a TV series in development with, makes it the ideal place for my blogging and TV career to meet.
