Queen for a Day




Photographer: Rebekah Harris // Stylist: Lucy Hill // Make-Up: Lily-Victoria Clarke

I thought I would share with you some photos that were taken of me when I modelled for a friend's magazine recently. It was a rather fun shoot as I got to wear this marvelous, somewhat extravagant vintage dress and prance around pretending I was a queen for a day. I must admit I look like a top class bitch in these photos though, then again I suppose you might be if you were a queen. When I first put the dress on I could not stop laughing for seeing a resemblance between myself and Princess Fiona (in ogre form) from "Shrek" with the green dress and braided ginger hair!

I finally booked my tattoo today after about two years of thinking over a design! I tend to really think my tattoo ideas through so I am 100% certain that I will not regret it, but I've been longing for a feather on my ribcage for so long now that I'm just going to bite the bullet and get it done. The date is next Wednesday! I'm so excited and nervous! I haven't had a tattoo done since I was 18!

  10. Wow, hello stunner! These photos are gorgeous; love the plush fabrics. A feather tat sounds ace! I have a peacock feather on my foot...unfortunately it looks a bit like a fishbone, it majorly needs redoing...in other words be careful what tattooist you go to, learn from my fail!
