My week has been mostly sports luxe and beards!

So my week has been pretty much taken over by planning the super shiny activewear campaign for SukiShufu. Sending emails galore to a client in Singapore is one way of doing the prep. At least I have plenty of time and visual refs to get cracking on. I spent a day of model casting with my partner in crime Christopher Sims at 55HQ, and thankfully we both agreed on the same shortlist!! It’s always lovely when the girls you have worked with before pop along for a casting too. It’s great to catch up and see what they are up to. Although I would never want to be a model and go on all those go-sees! I think the 55 pooch Tommy, is a big hit, and he definitely knows how to woo the gals!

It wasn’t all about models though.. I also managed to make a cake. That is a bit of a biggie for me so let’s give credit where it’s due!

It seems like now fashion month is over, every major gallery is having a show I want to see, and it only seemed apt that I took the bofy to the ‘Beard’ exhibition at Somerset House. He’s just got his mitts on the Braun ‘cruZer 6face’, which I was hoping would keep his stubble at that perfect length, but after seeing all the uber cool hairy guys photographed by Mr Elbank, he said he was tempted to go the other way!!! Well worth a look for facial furniture fans and it was good to see one of our first models Ricki Hall werking it! Beard. 5 – 29 March 2015.

The day was finished off by sampling someone else’s cake at La Polentaria on Old Compton Street. A new descovery for me, and the fact I could get a double shot decaf soy milk cappacinno and some vegan apple cake on a Sunday evening made me grin even more. Good job I have my new H & M snakeskin inspired trainers to wear and jog it all off!!

At least this week started off on a healthy tip.. Two hours at the gym and the promise of a pole dancing course. Really good for the core strength apparently. I’m in!
