It’s been ages since I documented a week in pictures here on my blog, so at the start of last week I decided to make a concious effort to do so…
On Monday I was off to Birmingham to prep for the Pandora fashion show. I was booked on the job with a couple of girls from my agency who I’m also friends with (I love it when that happens) so Nicole and I headed down together and met Kattreya there for rehearsals before we checked into our hotel. We utilised Monday night at the hotel well, by ordering take out, doing face masks and having a long over due girlie catch up.
On the Tuesday our call time wasn’t until 2pm, so we had just enough time to nip into the centre, do a quick spot of shopping and grab some lunch. We opted for Five Guys for lunch as we thought it would be the quickest option but it turned out to be the busiest place we could have picked. It was my first time trying the famous burger bar and I actually opted for a hot dog. It was enjoyable and filling but I think it’s rather over rated to be honest with you (says the burger critic over here). Anyway it did the job of filling us up before heading to the location for hair and makeup prep.
On Tuesday evening after the show, Nicole and I headed home. After the long journey back I got in at 1:30am and my bed never felt so good.
On Wednesday’s job I was back working in Manchester doing some swimwear shots. Oh how I cannot wait for summer.
On Thursday I was working for Harley Davidson, channelling my inner rock chick whilst modelling their clothing line. I got to work with a really fun team, plus some models from my agency, so it was a fun shoot.
Not only was the shoot lots of fun but we had an early finish (which is always excellent), so I nipped into town to buy a few essentials before meeting my friends for pizza and wine in Dry bar.
On the weekend I didn’t see any of the Chinese New Year celebrations (although I had intended to), bad weather caused my boyfriend and I to hibernate. We did venture out on Saturday however and went to my favourite pizza place, Croma. I made a half hearted attempt at joining in on the Chinese New Year festivities by getting one half of my pizza (Chinese style) duck and plumb sauce with spring onions. Okay, so a feeble attempt but at least I tried, sort of.
