It's Good To Be Home

Recently I have left London for the Summer to spend it with my family, friends and boyfriend.
As much as I love London there is always a certain feeling about the place you grew up in that cannot be taken away. I do love Jersey but I also hate how enclosed and conventional the society is, and no to mention how expensive it is. Yes, it is more expensive than London for general living costs. Luckily I have my family and boyfriend to stay with.
Jersey is a beautiful island and cannot wait for summer to actually start and so I can hit the beach!
 Beach at St Helier, Jersey
The first couple of days have been amazing, full with going out day and night and just having some great times. The one thing I love about Jersey is how sunny it is, even on a cold winters day the sun will be shining for the majority of days. I just love the feeling of waking up to a beautiful day.

So it is just lovely having time to myself which I can do nothing as university in London is quite full on at times. So I will be less active than my usual self but I promise to keep posting either on here, or my other sites I am on.

With Love,

Attitude Clothing Competition 2012- Why I pulled out.

 I am so very pleased to have reached the finalists in the competition and have been one of the many models who have worked hard to gain support from fellow followers and friends.
This competition really did mean a lot to me as I used to receive the attitude clothing magazine and loved flicking through the pages filled with stunning clothes and even more stunning models.
I really did draw inspiration from this in my early teenage years and so to be a model for them would be such an honor to say the least.
But due to contestants cheating the deadline had been moved to a later date and I am scheduled to go back to Jersey (my hometown) to see my friends, family and boyfriend after 10 weeks of being in London for University. 
My Modelling is very important to me but some things just require a higher priority.
& cancelling flights is expensive to say the least.
So due to all the drama and foul play in the competition the deadline had been moved way further ahead of schedule and at the time of the shoot I will not be in London.
The previous date suited me perfectly but things don't always turn out.
So I do regret to say that I pulled out of the competition.

Although I am not entered anymore into the competition I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has voted, shared, liked, re blogged and all the various other support you have given me throughout this competition and throughout my modelling work.
It really does mean so much to me that people appreciate and love what I love doing and a great passion of mine.
I really can't thank you all enough, and for a second there it looked like I had a chance of winning!
Hopefully they'll book me in the future *fingers crossed*.
This also means that I can vote! Which I am very excited about and good luck to everyone.
In true RuPaul fashion I say 
"Ladies, Start your engines and may the best woman WIN!"

Healthy Lunch #2 Crayfish & Avacado Salad

Salad from Pret A Manger
Around £3
Fat:15g of saturates: 3.5g
Shelfish is one of my favourites and I love avacado. So this salad is perfect for my taste.
Zero carbs and full of mono-unsaturated fat from the avacado which reduces cholesterol.
Comes with dijon dressing which is a great addition to the salad.
They also give you loads of crayfish which is great as sometimes places give you hardly anything.

Agent Provocateur Haul & Shopping Experience - Fifi Set

Today I hit the sales in London (Oxford Street), I mean I live in London and for a confessed shopaholic like me it is a must.
So first stop was selfridges (naturally), and I had a good look round each department and of course lingerie being very high on my list went up to the third floor to see what it had to offer.
Now Agent Provocateur is my favourite lingerie company. So of course I am going to look there. Recently I have been stalking the site for any glimpses of the summer sale and so far there has been zero.
So I was very pleasantly surprised that there was a "secret" sale in selfridges.
Most of the sale rails were 30% or up to 50% and then there was one rail which was up to 75%.
This is where I found the fifi set.
The fifi  set comes in many colours including, pink & black, cream & black, black and red.
The red version was the only one in this rail.
I just had to have it!
So I grabbed mutliple sizes and combinations and hurried off to the glamorous changing rooms, and had a bit of a party.

The Changing rooms in selfridges are beautiful and so very spacious. 
So I bought the Fifi Bra (£25 from £95), Brief (£20 from £70) and suspender (£25 from £85)
This set is so pretty and so sexy but ultra feminine and sexy. 
Also extremely flattering.
The red version is discontinued but the black will enter the summer sale and the black & cream/black & pink versions are a part of the AP classics. So they will be available for a very long time: HERE

I am going back today to get the matching thong and to investigate purchasing a slip or some more naughty things.

Here is a video I made showing the lingerie up close and going into more detail about shopping with AP in london (soho & selfridges).

Thank you for reading
