November Update!

Well this November has been a truly fabulous time of the year unusually for me considering I hate the cold miserable winter weather. This year was different because my husband and I jetted off on our belated honeymoon which we put off after we married in July 2012. It was so worth the wait as we honeymooned in Mauritius otherwise known as paradise and had the most amazing time. See some of my pictures below.

Now back in cold blightly and the exciting Christmas preparations begin! I just need to get over my long lingering cold. A busy month ahead of parties, family gatherings, photoshoots, Christmas weddings and even a Christmas trip to Berlin.

Also watch out on my blog for my daily December Advent make-up facts!

Behind the scenes on a Glamour Magazine shoot

In the November issue of UK Glamour magazine I did the make-up and hair for a shoot with Timberland and  the make-up for a shoot with Calvin Klein, hair by Choccy.
See pictures from behind the scenes below. The Calvin Klein shoot was shot on location in a beautiful location house in Camber Sands, it was the hottest day of the year it felt like we were working in Spain not England.  The Timberland shoot was shot on location again this time in Camden, a minibus was our base for styling.  See how rain was created for the shot!  The official tearsheets can be seen on my website
