Summer Lovin....

Well hello almost summer! I saw the weather today and realised I should....stay indoors and make polymorph clay chibi's and charms.

I woke up to realise I hadn't charged my phone the night before. I was going to charge it but I needed charging first! I must have kipped it at half past midnight!

I have ended up charging that phone twice today! Only used it to check my Instagram *coughs* and some nice pictures of the Horrible Histories cast and Mighty Boosh cast...*coughs*.

So in the first part of the afternoon, I made some Haribo strawberry charms using some fimo. I spent about an hour dealing with wire work. I used to do bead work when I was 10 or 11yrs old. I used to create my own bracelets and necklaces than at the age of 12, I began to get into sewing. I used to create little pockets or wallets to keep my library cards safe. I remember making one with pink stripes with blue stitching. You can almost envision the look of it!

Also this afternoon I created cookie charms and cupcake charms. Perhaps I should add a page with tutorials how to make them in easy steps and also cheaply. I only recently started making them, and I have had a massive thought. I want to re-create and re-name my business. All will be shown later this month.

At four I went to get a coffee and flapjack, I ran upstairs to check my emails... couple which really bored me half to death! Than I looked outside, walked downstairs to the garden. I took my jacket off and threw it to the floor and layed down. I looked up to see the clouds and just kept on thinking about what someone said to me:

Someone (who does not want to be named) said "Did you know your birthmark marks where you were killed before you were alive?" This I have been thinking about for over 24hours.. Its so interesting. Because I have two marks: I have one on my neck (could I have had my head chopped off?!) and I have a one on my ankle which I am sensitive about and it hurts if I hit it. All this is just running around in my head, even while I type.....

So as you can see I have a had a pretty relaxing yet interesting day!

Bring Me Sunshine | Life as a Musical Theatre Student | #1

Studying and training in Musical Theatre is an absolute dream at the moment, I may be a bit left footed when it comes to Jazz, but even when something doesn't go right we give it the jazz hands.

The students are lovely and so talented, it feels weird to be the eldest and occasionally having to (literally) catch up! During my Fine Art studies I was sort of the 'middle aged' student, but the eldest was 47 years old.

To catch up, what's been happening this past month?
I had the opportunity to participate in Lucy Suggate's 'Swarm Sculptures' at Nottingham Contemporary and rehearse in the amazing new Dance4 studio in September.

I also had the fantastic opportunity to go to my first premiere of 'Hood' in Nottingham for a pilot episode for the TV series starring, local singer/songwriter Josh Kemp and a fellow friends and actors, Adam Guest and Mik Horvath.
It was so wonderful getting to finally catch up with them and would like to personally thank them …

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | Anita And Me

In absolute excitement, I have been so happy and very fortunate to be back performing as Ensemble with Touring Consortium Theatre Company again in 'Anita And Me' at Theatre Royal Nottingham 14th to 18th March 2017.

THURSDAY | 9th March 2017

It's the first rehearsal, I am always nervous before meeting people but the fact I already know four of the ensemble members makes it just that little bit better,  Michelle Smith, Estelle Smith, Alice Gee and Marcus Whybrow who were also in A Tale of Two Cities back in November 2016.

I have to be honest, it felt a bit weird to be going to the same rehearsal venue where I'm involved with two stage productions which ironically are being toured around the UK and each of the show's are exactly ten days apart - I'm currently involved with this production (Anita And Me) and The Grapes of Wrath.

We have commenced rehearsals on the beginning scenes where myself, Alice and Marcus have to run on stage cause chaos in Tollington with t…

Life as a Musical Theatre Student Special | A Tale Of Two Cities |

You may have noticed in previous weeks, the very delay in posting covers, vlog's and also posting updates! The past two weeks in November have been immersive and utterly incredible.

💖 THURSDAY & FRIDAY ( 17th & 18th )
The rehearsal day had arrived, since finding out my audition was successful in the summer, I had been eagerly counting the days down.

On Thursday (17th) the ensemble also know as the Two Cities Twelves, introduced each other  - luckily I already knew some of the cast ( Mike Newbold, Marcus Whybrow, Michelle Smith and Alice Gee) from previous productions and also as friends but I was certainly thrilled to meet and perform with more like mind and lovely local actors and actresses.
We commenced rehearsing on some of the scenes including 'The Hanging' - which reminded me strangely of my FMP (Fine Art - Final Major Project) earlier this Summer after creating my two five foot puppets.

On Friday we commenced rehearsing the next scenes including my pe…
