It's been a while..

I forgot I even had this thing so I think I'll bring it back to life!
So what has changed since I last blogged?
Not very much ...

Well I've been made editor of the magazine I was working on.
Which sounds just fabulous! But believe me when I say it's more The Devil Wears Primark, than The Devil Wears Prada.

It basically just means I have complete control over the magazine, which is DEF a good thing. I've completely revamped the magazine, from tacky to a little more upmarket.
I'm taking a lot of inspiration from high end magazines like Vogue and Elle, tone it down a bit and make the design and typography a lot more sophisticated...before I got my hands on it it looked like a copy of the Argos catalogue!

This issue of Vogue is amazing.. but seriously, no eyebrows? Not even if you're head to toe in Chanel can you pull off the egg look. It's not attractive, and she looks like a corpse!

Talking about egg faced corpses, Im looking for a model as I'm setting up a high fashion photo shoot for my make up portfolio with a photography student who specialises in portraits, I'm so excited...and very nervous as it will be my first high fashion shoot. EVERYTHING I have done is very dark .. I also just set up another photoshoot to do Sylvia Ji type make up ..SO EXCITED!! I'm absolutely in love with Sylvia Ji paintings.

I love the contrast of beauty and death (as in Mexico, people celebrate the dead one day a year they build private altars honoring the deceased, using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.)

Hmm, that's enough for now, I'll try update this more!
Not like anyone read it anyway!
I'm heading off to Camden on Sunday YAY! Such a beautiful city.. I might never come home. :)
