Four Smiles - Day 2 of #Blogging Adventure

Sunday 3rd August 2014

The day I have been waiting for ages came, the very day I have waited for two long years. 
I waited eagly at the window in my room overlooking the glistening water. Suddenly there were two boys, I could hardly believe my eyes, the two boys I knew were practically men. 

We hugged and I stood up from my chair in the lounge. I don't think my auntie was expecting to see me now 6ft and almost a lady! (I'm the tallest female in my family, woohoo!) However I'd hardly count myself as a lady, just a weird sci-fi, theatre, actor obbessed, polymer clay, art geek! 

We went to play at the amusments for some hours, then we all went to the pub and discussed about what's been going on. We also talked about how close my life as college student was. Going from Home education to College is a huge leap for me & my career is so close I can feel it! I refuse to give up!We head to the apartment and walked to the car to  
As our day together drew to a close, we made a date to meet up over the week. 

Me on the North Seafront
Me & the family went out on a walk by the North Seafront, I got the chance to go on the beach & have it to myself! I also took my camera to get photos of the pastel skies, they looked beatiful, the tide was slowly coming & I decided it would be a good idea to come back on the path


There was also 'Sand Graffiti', I thought it was rather artistic, David Hockney did you do this? That's another thing, my favourite artist, David Hockney lives in Bridlington!

After our walk, we sat down and watched telly (as you do). And I also began on the 1000 piece jigsaw.








And my photo the day for Sunday 3rd of August is..... This picture of the moon by the seafront.
I used a 4ft 5" zoom to achieve this & used little Photoshop contrast.

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…
