About Me

My Photo
I am a lover of all things creative. A singer, song writer & producer. I have studied art most of my academic life and have a degree in animation. I also enjoy painting, makeup artistry, photography, dress making & designing, digital art working, drawing (on paper & on photoshop). I absolutely love fashion- haute couture/ editorial stuff. I view it as a form of artistic expression; it influences my style of drawing, makeup, and my dress sense. Despite my love of fashion, I am not a big follower of trends. I tend not to care what is in or out of season because my honest opinion is what goes around comes back around... If you share in my interests, hopefully you'll enjoy my blog posts!

'Midnight Rapture' Self Portraits

'Midnight Rapture' Self Portraits (video below)


For the upcoming new year, I've decided to perfect my photography skills.
In the past i have been quite apprehensive but in 2014 I'm making a conscious decision to be fearless and pursue ALL my dreams!
Here are some of my favourite shots…


I actually got the concept for this shoot in a dream. 
On 1st December 2013, I had a dream that Beyonce had released a new single featuring Jay Z. (This was a few weeks before her surprise album and track featuring Jay Z were revealed!)
In the dream the images had a whimsical, euphoric feel. With cascading hair and a slight silver cast.
This is my interpretation of the images revealed in the dream


When it came to the editing process, I took influence from the renaissance art period. 
I wanted the photographs to look like oil paintings, fine art pieces…






I am so pleased with the way my photographs have turned out! I hope you like them too!
Here is a Get Ready With Me video to show the hair and makeup preparation for the shoot.xx

Rihanna- What Now Music Video Inspired MakeUp Tutorial

Rihanna 'What Now' Music Video Inspired MakeUp Tutorial
(video below)


Hey lovelies! Here's a Rihanna inspired makeup look for you. 
I really like the editing of this music video and I absolutely love the styling. 


Lots of  silver rings, the cross choker and dress reminds me of how I used to dress aged 14- Very 90's!





(I'm aware of the deeper meaning behind the message of the song… It's sad but for now I'm just going to focus on aesthetics)





The makeup look for this video is very soft and beautiful!
