its.....RANT TIME!

For christs sake, sorry everyone but this is going to be a rant.

I went in search for Hama Beads as I am running out quite quickly after a lot of interest in the jewerlly. (Note - I will try to post some samples tonight).

Well I went to Tesco to search for anything cheaper as Hama Beads can be quite expensive. So I had a look "hmm" I thought "4000 beads, that will last for at least two months" *looks at the price* "£5.50! You have got to be absolutey kidding me! Only two weeks ago it was £3.60.".

So I walked to Home Bargains because I need a contact book for orders & feedback. I looked on the around on the Crafty part, nothing.

"Okay" I thought "Not a problem, I'll try ARGOS." So off I toddled with hope. Walked in, looked on the touch screen and was there Hama Beads? Yeah around 10,000 beads in a massive bucket for £10. "Perfect" I said with glee, then I looked at the small print thang. " 'Home Delievery' what the fudge?" I was slighty confused. Why the heck would I need home delievery for a tiny smegging bucket that I have easily carried home before? "Cheap Skates!" I shouted. My mind soon later said "Was that really the best thing to say in public." *everything went quiet*  "Nah brain that summed it up nicely!" I walked home deciding maybe a city trip would be in order.

RANT OVER!

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…
