london and giles deacon




































jumper: new look
dress: new look
necklace: new look and forever 21
rings: forever 21 and market stall
boots: new look

So, I'm back home again! Giles Deacon was amazing, and I had such a fun time! Was so weird being backstage and seeing the flurry and stress that goes on! Filming for my New Look video took up most of the time, I don't think I've EVER been so stressed out, awkward and frustrated. I kept getting my words wrong and my mind going completely blank! So if the video is really cheesey and I look like a idiot, Im sorry! Ill probably talk more about the show itself when my video is actually edited and up! Other than that it was a fun time, Me and Greg went to some exhibitions. We went to these awesome ones at the Wellcome Collection on drugs and the history of medicine. Both of which were equally fascinating and creepy. The medicine collection had far too many pairs of forceps for my liking!

Thank you to New Look for taking me along with them, and putting me up in a hotel. And Greg for being my long suffering friend who had to mooch around London on his own while I was filming!

  2. Amazing photos, it looks like it was such a great experience! You're so lucky to have gone backstage, but I know just what you mean when you say it seems like it was so stressful back there, haha.
    I look forward to this video though, I'm sure you didn't do badly at all!

  5. I'd love to be able to take photos backstage - it looks like an incredible experience!

    And I remember when I was filming every day with Channel 4 - such a stressful experience, I hope its worth it in the end!

  37. I thoroughly enjoyed the 'drug experiences' part of the exhibition website.

    "(cocaine) It was that good I thought I'd died and was floating on a pink, warm, marshmallow cloud It was a feeling of intense peace - I was so happy but tears were pouring down my cheeks."

    - was probably my favourite!

    Looking forward to seeing the vid - the location for the shoot look amazing!
