30 Day Snap.. Number 30!.. My Most Favourite Thing!

I wanted my final 30 Day Snap to be sentimental

and special!

My two favourite people, snuggled up!

I'm so excited about this summer :)

And seeing these two every day!

I can't believe how much happens in one month!

Andy Murray won Wimbledon!

I worked at Basement Jaxx Live and with the band Temples

30 Day Snap.. Number 29.. Almost there

The weather this summer so far has been quite bizarre

this morning this happened 

however now it's nice and sunny :)

25 July 2013

30 Day Snap.. Number 25.. Ellie Goulding

Some of you may know already

that I love music!

I have to listen to something everyday when I get home!

My 30 Day Snap is cheeky cause it's a moving one!

I freaking love this song!

And she is super good live too!

24 July 2013

30 Day Snap.. Number 24.. Tired!

My god, I feel exhausted

after such a hectic weekend working with early mornings

and 12 hour days!

I am now back to reality, however last night I woke up many times

thinking I was on set, and was struggling to find things that weren't there!


And to top it off my son is deciding it will be fun to 

have a tantrum a day for the whole summer holidays

Jesus! This is gonna be a fun break!

If any parents want to give me advice on what to do when your child screams his head off, it would be very welcome!

23 July 2013

30 Day Snap.. Number 21&22+23.. Whoops!!

I have a valid reason for missing the last

three days of 30 Day Snaps

Whoops, sorry guys!

So my story begins on Wednesday the 17th

I was contacted by a Production Company to be a Runner

for the night! At the Basement Jaxx Live Streamed Gig at 

Somerset House in London!

What an experience!
Loved it :)

This was on Sunday! Then the day before this I was approached by another company

By a lovely gentleman recommending me, who Directed 

Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith - La La La song!

 So therefore on Monday I arrived in Hackney

to work as a Runner again for a music video.

For the band Temples

They were really awesome and cool guys!
Check out their music!

So that is why I have been away for a while, and why I am slightly exhausted.

However it was all great fun and thank you to all the people who contacted/recommended/Iworkedwith!

These past few days I have worked with the nicest people, even after a 12 hour stint we were all still laughing and enjoying it!

And a huge thank you to Daniel who escorted me everywhere to make sure I was safe!
