Last night was the premiere of the short film I produced and co-directed. 'Flame' was shot over two manic days in May (with two of my models) and was finally ready to reveal to friends and colleagues at a private screening in Central London. I was a bit nervous, but the event was a big success.
Growing up in a large family, my mother had very much a 'waste not, want not' attitude which has stuck with me to this day. This is prevalent in our 100% recycled Polarfleece range for little ones - mostly made from waste plastic bottles - thereby offsetting our plastics production and helping to reduce detrimental impacts on the environment.
One in seven of rotten tomatoes top horror films list are directly about mental illness - though more could be argued to have roots in the topic - films about possession for example, which was originally derived from a fear of the different.
My sister and I have been busy cooking up a storm in the battle to find out which of us is the better chef. Olivia, who's also a make-up vlogger, is ...
Urban Outfitters have been getting a lot of bad press for their extremely insensitive and offensive clothing. One of the items of clothing that was in particularly poor taste was a t-shirt glorifying depression
You are new, so no matter what your experience beforehand everyone will assume you are utterly crap at telling jokes to people. This can be frustrating when you are trying to assure everyone you are the UK's answer to Sarah Silverman with a bit of Lee Evans thrown in *cough*. The answer? Well, my answer, is to embrace it.
Cuffing Season occurs just like clockwork at the end of Summer/beginning of Fall/Winter. Your summer flings are winding down, the weather is turning chilly and suddenly, you have an intense desire to be "cuffed" aka in a serious relationship.
The problem with housewarming parties is that guests can accidentally morph from close friends, into strange relatives bearing surprising gifts. Where once they brought wine, now they come bearing indoor tulip trees, personalised chopping boards, and tasting plates, with accompanying dipping sauces.
No stay in Goa would be complete without a trip to Club Cubana, situated between Baga and Anjuna in the Arpora Hill. Dubbed the 'night club in the sky', the climb to the top is well worth it as its picturesque views are equalled by its hedonistic atmosphere.
New York Fashion Week, an annual parade of passive aggressive dressing, party-crashing and big time blagging. Floods of photographers and many, many... many bloggers descend on the Lincoln Centre in the hope that their ensemble will make it into the pages of... well, anywhere really.
In the next few weeks, there will be new wave of 18-year-old youngsters beginning one of the most important and challenging chapters in their lives. I'm sure the stresses are beginning for the eager youths, seeking to get away from their family homes to start university
Organising a wedding is no easy task. No matter how many people you are inviting - be it 50 or 350 - you're guaranteed a certain level of stressful situations. Have you ordered the flowers for your bridesmaids? Have you sorted the table centres? Will your mother-in-law like your colour scheme?
t's funny...when the term 'Freemason' is thrown around (in my experience anyway), I hear things like 'New World Order' and 'Illuminati' roaring viciously out of people's speculative mouths. I've always been both fascinated and confused as to who they actually are...
The anthropologist Rapport, who wrote extensively on ritual, noted that masks do not always disguise, they often transform and actually display identity. They "coordinate the iconicity, the signs of identity in any particular cultural context." Rather than conceal, they become an agent of revelation.
It is a very personal journey to make your own mask and I have seen a pattern emerge over the years of observing people make their totem piece - the mask takes form and then the maker cannot help but reveal a part of themselves through the design, build and decoration.
At this party - with so many people in one room - my mind scattered so I fell straight into my old habits from way back in childhood; getting people laugh to get their approval. Why I need to do this I don't know. It could be because as a child I always thought the more people I could get to like me, the more protected I was from my parents' abuse.
