Auditions and my new hair!
Auditions Auditions Auditions!
It’s been another busy week for me going up and down the country for auditions and meetings, which by the way I am loving! I had a recall for one which I didn’t expect at all, when I walked into the room all the girls looked the same with long dark hair and olive skin, I haven’t ever really experienced castings before as Corrie was my second ever audition, so it’s going to take a while to get used to, but it’s all good and some of the scripts I have been reading are excellent.
Alsoooo, I can’t say exactly what – but I have a big announcement on May 14th, and it’s something I am really excited about and have been bursting to tell people for ages! Will reveal all soon!
Aside from meetings etc. I have been spending time in Essex with Mark and our friends. We went for dinner one night to Alec’s Fish Restaurant which was delicious – here’s my outfit:
The bag is Zara, skirt (I can’t actually remember) I think it is Mango?, top is Lipsy, shoes are Office and the statement necklace is Zara.
I think the necklace finishes the outfit off – here’s some other necklaces I have my eye on at the mo:
These are from http://www.pearlescence.co.uk/ the first is garnets and a black pearl, and the second is a simple big pearl on a pendant.
I love this one from Zara and this one is Johnny loves Rosie from ASOS and this one is really something from Stella and Dot!
I have also got my nails done in this really lovely coral colour, and my new ‘M’ ring is from Rock and Rose – I love it so much I got it in gold too!
My hair was long overdue a good trim so I took my mummy into my favourite Manchester hair salon www.reubenwoodcreatives.co.uk for some much needed trimmage. I was thinking about having something a bit more drastic and getting my hair into a bob or something but I know I would regret it afterwards! Here’s me in the salon:
I also tried out my new make-up purchases that night and I have to say I am pretty impressed – the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette is a must have for your clutch bag (as you can see mine didn’t carry much) as it’s a natural blusher, subtle highlighter and golden bronzer in one. The colours really suit my skin tone and I didn’t need to put a lot on to get a healthy glow. The highlighter is best for under the arch on your eyebrows, the line across the top of your cheeks, your temples and a bit on your chin.
Loads of people have tweeted me asking where my new sunglasses are from – they are Michael Kors and I have been wearing them all the time (not indoors though, that’s just plain wrong!)
Elsewhere I’m on the hunt for the perfect red carpet bag and shoes, because I am going to the BAFTA Awards on May 18th as a guest of one of the partners – St Tropez … I have already chosen my dress which is VERY rare for me as I tend to leave things very last minute, but need the accessories and jewellery to match. I’m on the hunt next week so will report back on goodies I find.
Also next week I am on Lorraine on Tuesday morning to launch the High Street Fashion Awards (make sure you tune in!) and will be doing a live link from Manchester on the Thursday too.
After I am on Lorraine on Tuesday I am straight off to Wiltshire where I am meeting some very inspirational soldiers who are residents of the fantastic Help for Heroes recovery centre – Tedworth House.
The House provides support to serving and veteran members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded, injured or become sick and has state of the art facilities to help nurse the soldiers and ex soldiers who are recovering there.
I’ve been really looking forward to this visit for some time, and will be working with Help For Heroes to help raise vital funds for them later in the year.
Speaking of charities – another one that I support is the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and my friend and ex Coronation Street co-star Catherine Tyldesley is going to be doing getting into Salford Quays and swimming in the OPEN WATER (eeek Cath! It will be soooo coldddd!), to raise money for this vital local cause as part of the Great Swim Series 2014 .To sponsor Cath please go to http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/CathTyldesley
I also want to thank everyone again who voted for me for the FHM #100sexiest poll. I was totally shocked when I got the call to say I had won, I honestly couldn’t believe it.. I really do think that being sexy is about smiling, being confident and comfortable in your own skin. You don’t need to put on lots of make-up or wear next to nothing to be sexy.
Here’s to an exciting week ahead!
Lots of love
