Travels | Paris Day Two

On the second day, I decided to stop sulking around and just be happy that I was lucky enough to be in the gorgeous city! It’s really inexpensive to travel around so I thought I should try to hit up as many spots as I could before I had to catch my train again. The hotel receptionist gave me a pamphlet and on it had all the tourist sites and the nearest metro stations, so then it was just a matter of looking at the map and seeing where was easiest to go to in the time that I had.

Again it was horrible rain and wind, which sucked – but I tried to make the most of it. It was hard walking around with my luggage everywhere too, but I had to check out of the hotel so I had no choice. Again making me want to go back for a longer time where I could actually explore without lugging 3 bags around.

Travels | Another quick trip, this time à Paris!

Hello friends! Yet again, I went on a little trip somewhere! (Modeling seems to be good for that..) This time though, it wasn’t to work! Last week I found out my temporary work Visa was expiring, and I had to leave England for 24 hours in order to get an extension, since I’m scheduled to be here for longer. One of my agents suggested going to Paris on the train, and I thought: why not?

I speak French and I had never been to Paris before. Also, I’m not yet represented in Paris so I also contacted my mother agency and got them to set up appointments for me with agencies there who wanted to see me. So I made sure I was being productive while being there as well!

Music Monday | Ariana Grande

   Hi! Welcome to Music Monday! This week, our feature artist is the mind blowing-ly talented Ariana Grande.

   Kay seriously, words can’t express how much we love this girl. We started watching Victorious (don’t judge) about a year ago, so we first saw her as the not-so-bright red headed cutie, Cat Valentine.  Shortly after, we heard her first single, Put Your Hearts Up, and I wasn’t sold. We thought she was another “Nick Kid” who got a record deal. So I went on her YouTube account to get a better idea of her vocal talent and let me tell you, I have never in my life eaten my words so quickly. The girl has pipes like you wouldn’t believe. Her cover of Mariah Carey’s Emotions was on repeat for weeks. Needless to say, I felt uber stupid...

Travels | My short trip to Spain!

Travels | A quick trip to Spain!

Hi guys! I went to Spain a while ago, and I did a vlog about it but I didn’t do a blogpost – so I figured I’d do one :). I was in Spain shooting for a UK company called Littlewoods. They’re a huge awesome company in the UK and they’ve been around for decades. In Spain we were shooting for their catalogue and I shot all sportswear. It was awesome!

To be specific we shot in the island of Mallorca, which is the biggest island of Spain. I had never been to Spain before at all, so I was super excited to be there for work where everything was paid for! I had never been on this kind of job before so I felt very blessed to have the opportunity.

S'mores Ice Cream Sandwiches

Hiiii loves!

I was on tumblr and I found a picture of these s'mores ice cream sandwiches. Unfortunately there were no instructions on how to make them but that didn't stop me from trying. A few weeks ago, I got some ingredients I thought would be needed and tried it out. They actually taste so good! It's a little messy to eat but I love it :) **Sidenote: I used a 9x13 baking tray and it fit 15 square graham crackers with space on the side, so I would recommend using an 8x8 baking tray. That should fit 9 square graham crackers perfectly.**

Travels | New York, New York: Day Two!

     Hello again loves! This is part two of our two-day weekend in the beautiful city of NYC!

     After waking up from the previous night out, we grabbed some much needed coffee and tea and headed for the 9/11 memorial. It wasn’t far from our hotel, so we took the opportunity to walk through the city. Once we got there, we went through a few security check points, and were let in.  The memorial was absolutely beautiful. Seeing the two waterfalls, and the surrounding metal plates engraved with the names of every person who lost their lives that day evoked an indescribable feeling. Despite being in the middle of the bustling city, the area that contained the memorial was quietly calm. On certain names we saw white roses, which we later found out, meant it was that person’s birthday. I thought that was such a beautiful thing. If you’re in New York, this is definitely a place to visit. To be in a place of such historical significance to not only Americans, but to people around the world, was amazing.

   Once we left the memorial, we opted to do more sight seeing and hit the places everyone in the group wanted to see. First stop, Wall Street. It was crazy being on the infamous Wall Street, and looking at the actual New York Stock Exchange.  We went looking for the famous Wall Street bull, but it was nowhere to be found (in our vicinity at least). After Wall Street we went to see the Brooklyn Bridge, and from there made it to Grand Central Station. That place was absolutely beautiful. The lighting, the amazing artwork on the high ceilings, the marble, everything about it was breathtaking. Seeing the famous clock in the center was pretty awesome too. I wanted to find the whispering corner, a corner where you can whisper and have someone hear you on the other side, but didn’t. So if you’re ever at Grand Central, find the whispering corner!

Hey dolls! Over here in England, I've noticed that my lips get really dry, really fast and they start to burn and get discoloured! I started to google lip scrubs and such, and then I found that in stead of buying one it's so easy to make one for less than $4!

Travels | New York, New York!

    Hello, Hello! Welcome to another installment of our travel series. This one’s a bit late, but better late than never!

    Last month, a group of friends and I took a lovely little weekend trip to NYC. It’s my best friend’s dream city, and I’ve always wanted to go, so considering her birthday had just passed, we decided to round up some of our friends and take a little vacay!

    We left on the night of October 11th, by Greyhound, and after 12 hours of stories, sleep, unflattering pictures, one late night truck stop bathroom run (which seemed more like a prison bathroom), one stop over, and one bus driver exchange, we finally got to the city.
