Frequencies Update

A while back I did a little post about a film I was in. At the time, it was just starting to come out, going to various film festivals around the world and then onto a cinema/digital release in the US. Since then, many a person has asked me when it will be available in the UK. And now I can officially announce...


...that Frequencies is out on DVD and online in the UK!!! I still can't quite wrap my head around the whole thing, but the thing that blew my mind even more was that my face is on the poster!! It was a complete shock when I found out, but I absolutely love it!

Here are some links to buy/watch it if you want to :) it's currently available on Amazon, Amazon Prime, Tesco, iTunes, Film Four On Demand, and Google Play! If you do watch it, please do let me know what you think!

Thanks once again for all the support, every time I get a message from someone saying they've seen me in something or congratulating me on something I've done, I always feel so lucky :) 

If you've watched Frequencies, what do you think of it?

OOTD: Floating Away

Things have been a bit quiet over here. As you may have seen. My life has been super crazy over the past few months, and I've only really been able to come back to planet Earth. I won't go into too much detail, but if you want to find out what I've been up to, then watch the first part of my new video :)

So anyways! The weather here in the UK has been weirdly amazing over the past week. I'm talking summer temperatures- *gasps* quick crack out the suncream and your legs we've had sun for more than five minutes!!!! But in all seriousness, I don't want it to end. I've been craving summer for a long time, and looking at all the cute summer clothes coming out in the shops has made me even more excited! I'm heading to a festival this year, so am slowly starting to think about things to wear. I'm definitely considering bringing some kimonos with me, and when I saw this baby in New Look, I was drawn straight to the colour and pattern! The material of this is super light, so great for summer days, and is really floaty (as you may be able to see below, I got a bit overexcited on the whole spinning thing). It's not got a structured fit to it, so it becomes more of a throw/cape style. And ladies, its been boyf approved! No more worrying that he won't walk with me because I'm wearing a colourful print :P

I've also rediscovered my Levi denim shorts, but even though they are slightly too big for me now, I've been keeping them fitted and styled with skinny belts.

LFW: Little Shilpa

I unfortunately couldn't make any shows/presentations on day 2 of LFW, so trundled up on day 3 (after oversleeping, typical) for my first presentation. Most of the events I was invited to that day were happening at the ME Hotel, which is a godsend during fashion week as they open up their rooftop bar for tired and weary fashion week goers to grab a coffee and charge their phones. After spending some time in the bar with my lovely fashion week buddies; Josh, Lizzie, Kinga, Raahim and Allysha, we headed to the Little Shilpa presentation in the stunning reception at the hotel!

"The hunter crouches in his blind
'neath camouflage of every kind,
And conjures up a quaking noise
To lend allure to his decoys.
This grown-up man, with pluck and luck
Is hoping to outwit a duck." - Ogden Nash

Little Shilpa's AW15 collection was called Feral Nation, which revolves around bringing up the chaos from within ourselves without the negative connotations. Camouflage, in neoprene, parachute silk and plastic, is covered with embellishments, to signify the human spirit. Military style sweatshirts and animal-inspired handcrafted headgear representing our inner feral nature, are showcased together to show how one can tap into their deepest fears and look fierce without loosing a sense of style. They wanted to merge the lines between wear-ability and avant-garde.

We were also gifted this gorgeous brooch after the presentation, which every time I look at it reminds me of the presentation as it really was an 'experience'. The models slowly glided out to us with animal like movements, sometimes standing for a long period of time looking transfixed straight down the camera lenses pointing straight at them (a photographers dream) or helping each other up onto podiums to stare down at us. You left feeling slightly shaken about what you had seen, but definitely in a good way! I took some of my favourite shots of fashion week at this presentation- that's all I need to say!

What do you think of the collection?

LFW: Kolchagov Barba

Unfortunately I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked from this show, as the lighting was so bad! The venue at BEAT London was so lovely, but not when it came to photos! Here are some of the best shots I got...

"Only at nightfall, aethereal rumours 
Revive for a moment a broken Coriolanus" - TS Eliot, The Wasteland

The collection was called Nightfall, and it explored its mystical realm using sheer, lace and sequins for a feeling of sensuality and seduction. The colour palette was black, gold, nude and red, which resemble the sunset, the moon, and the darkness of night. This was a collection of demi-couture evening wear created to adorn and honour the female frame to create a lady confident in her beauty and individuality.

Bee Good Cleansing Water

Bee Good are a brand that I've been in love with for a while. I was gifted a moisturiser by them which I used up so quickly because I adored it (you can see it here in my Empty Products video)! So I was delighted when they sent me this cleansing water to try! Find out what I thought of it below:

blogger-bbloggers-beauty-bee-good-cleansing-water-skincare-review

BRAND
Bee Good is an independent British skincare company based in rural Hampshire, started in 2008 by husband and wife team Simon and Caroline. Experienced beekeeper Simon keeps hives in old orchards surrounding his home, and it was Caroline's interest in using the excess honey and beeswax which led to the first Bee Good products. They've harnessed the centuries-old healing powers of British honey, propolis (the resin collected by honeybees from tree sap and botanicals to fill gaps in the hives) and beeswax in their skin range. Bursting with the finest ingredients, their products blend ethically sourced bee-based ingredients with naturally active botanicals and plant oils. They're passionate about supporting the countryside and bees, and donate a share of all profits to UK bee-keeping causes.

PACKAGING
I love the packaging on this; super pretty with clear visuals showing the British production. The top allows the product to come out slowly, so you don't end up pouring out too much and wasting product. The ingredients are clear, but I did have to look at the press release that was sent with the product to see how to use it as it wasn't entirely clear on the bottle.

Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water


PRODUCT
I was super impressed by this! It was very cooling going onto the skin and sunk in very quickly. It did a great job at removing my full face of makeup, even leftover eye makeup (its delicate enough to use around the eye area without damaging the skin)! The thing I was most impressed with though was the effect it had on my skin...I used it one morning, and I had a couple of post LFW spots still rearing their ugly heads on my skin. I was also having a non makeup day so after I had done my usual skincare routine I left them be. Later that day my boyfriend asked whether I had popped these spots and I replied that I hadn't (I'm totally against it). He then commented that they had seriously reduced in size and redness- I didn't quite believe him and went to have a look for myself. AND HE WAS RIGHT! I concluded it must have been the cleansing water that had worked this miracle on my skin as I had made no other change to my skincare routine. I was so shocked at how effective it was!!!

All in all, I couldn't recommend this enough! It's certainly replacing my usual cleanser...take that spots!

Have you tried any Bee Good product before? What do you think?
