Hunky men, photoshoots and running in the rain
This week I gawped at hunky men, got my kit off and ran in the rain.
I usually associate scaffolding with builders’ bottoms but when I skipped over to the Institute of Contemporary Art last week, I witnessed something far better: male models hanging off actual scaffolding, whilst sipping on Hennessey to show off the slick new Autumn Winter 2014 collection for the Thomas Pink London Collections: Men party. There was cool music, pink gin to match my pink shirt and I bumped into my favourite Latex girl about town, Pandemonia. The only thing missing was wolf whistling from those handsome models. If only!
The Superdry show at the Old Sorting Office in London was also a lot of fun. I knew it was going to be just that so I went for bright and bold clothing, flashing my Playful Promises bra through a mesh AQ/AQ top and statement trousers. There was a DJ set by Nick Grimshaw and Samuel L Jackson was there too. I didnâ€™t see him but I just knew I was in the presence of greatness. Thatâ€™s the second time Iâ€™ve been in the same room as him (Samuel) and not met him. Hereâ€™s hoping the third time’s a charm.
This week I had a photo shoot for a new magazine called Fire Up, launching later this year and featuring great emerging talent such as the CEO Dancers, Joanna Fabikun, Fireshone photography and (ahem) me. Iâ€™m really looking forward to the magazine launch in April and seeing the final shots. Check out my Instagram for a sneak preview- itâ€™s all… legs.
I know so many people who have already given up their healthy New Year resolutions and weâ€™re not even half way through the month. Donâ€™t fall off the fitness bandwagon just yet. Try porridge in the morning with fruit, pasta for lunch and chicken salad for dinner and I know the weatherâ€™s been miserable but thereâ€™s no harm in running in the rain. Itâ€™ll cool you right down. Go on. Give it a whirl.
