My Corrie stunt double and my exciting secret project
This week has been a busy one so far… it’s my final fortnight on Corrie now and I spent all last week doing night scenes, most of which were outside and it was verrrrrrry collllld. I can’t give anything away that will spoil the story of Tina’s final weeks on the cobbles, but I did have my own stunt woman!
Also I hope you are all voting for your favourites in the British Soap Awards 2014. Everyone keeps asking me if I think I will win Sexiest Female again, to be honest I am amazed I won it once, however my vote this year goes to my very sexy co-star – Catherine Tyldesley. She is such a warm funny and uber gorgeous woman, with the most amazing curves! http://www.britishsoapawards.tv/
Last weekend I went to London to film for a secret project. I can’t tell you what it is just yet but it’s going to be announced in early May. It’s very exciting and to do with TV and fashion. Here is a sneaky peek from the studio. My eye catching dress was from Zara :-).
I also managed to get in a bit of clothes and beauty shopping during a gap in filming and was well chuffed to find these fab trousers. They are by NORR which is a new Danish brand – you can buy it in House of Fraser, http://www.norrstore.dk/
My shoes are Office and my top is Miss Selfridge. Yellow is such a happy colour, it always makes me think of Summer. It’s not long now girls!
Speaking of Summer, it’s about time I bought my new annual pair of sunglasses. I do it once a year, usually when I am bored in Duty Free waiting to board a plane (it’s fun trying on all the pairs of glasses, plus they are a lot cheaper there than in the shops!). I’m hoping to get in a short break in the sunshine after I finish filming on Corrie. I love Ray bans usually, but I have my eyes on these by Dior. They are called Piccadilly 2 in Light Gold. Gorgeous! Bit expensive at £230 but if they are in Duty Free then they will be a fair bit cheaper.
If you are on the hunt for a pair that are a bit more affordable then these are really nice from Lipsy, I love the bows on the sides, (Sun 30C2 Bronze) and these are about £35. Bargain!
I also stocked up on some of my favourite Origins Dr Andrew Weil Skin Tone Correcting Serum and the Illuminating lotion too which are one of my all time beauty favourite product ranges. I love it because it feels lovely and light on my skin, isn’t greasy at all, and gives a really luminous glow.
After my shopping spree, I went to try out a treatment with a lovely beauty therapist – Lisa Kempley, called LVL lashes. It stands for Length Volume and Lift and it straightens your lashes rather than curls them, to create the illusion of longer, thicker lashes. The treatment takes between 30 and 45 minutes and lasts up to 6 weeks depending what condition yours are in. These are great for a treat, holiday or a special occasion!
This weekend I’m off to London for a photoshoot which I am really looking forward to (might be able to sneak a couple of behind the scenes pics from this one!) and then next week is my last week filming on Corrie. Can’t quite believe it!
Lots of love
