Well today saw me at the BBC studios of Oxford radio, where I was interviewed by the delightful Jo Thoenes for her afternoon show talking about my career to date, from how I started in the industry of Make up and Hair Artistry to present day with my ever growing teams of Artists throughout the UK, Scotland, Ireland and Wales and my PA work to Lionel Richie....

What a great show, and how quick it went, the 30 minute slot flew by, by hopefully entertained a few listeners along the way... For anyone who missed the show and cares to listen please click on the link below (move curser until it passes approx 1hr 10 minutes into the show, where I begin)

With the onset of many Asian Weddings and my Master Classes for the Asian market unfolding as I type, I was delighted to meet the lovely Susie (also recently titled Domestic Goddess!) of 'Karma Kars Cotswold' at the delightful Country House/Restaurant/Hotel of Fossebridge Inn where we were welcomed by Samantha & Abby.

Susie launched her stunning service to the wedding industry in January of this year (2011), also supplying her gorgeous 1950's Vintage Ambassador Car to the film & TV industry, for shoots and also Advertising Campaigns. Her success is apparent with many brides securing the gem of a car for their special day... a bejeweled bride needs a bejeweled Kar!

The interior glistens with delicate red and gold fabric and jewels, and both bumpers are festooned with exotic flowers - a true eye catcher, chic, elegant and certainly fun...

We have some great ideas up our sleeves for events, shoots, weddings etc, which I look forward to blogging about soon...

For further information contact Susie:

01242 248 190
07828 309 527

For a delightful Cream tea, lunch, drinks by the lake, dinner or even a classical concert I can't recommend highly enough the beautiful 'Fossebridge Inn' in the Cotswolds, where our meeting took place. A warm welcome was had by all thanks to Samantha and Abby - Great Coffee ladies! Rocket Coffee rocks...

Forever & Ever Events - Bloomsbury Bowling Alley Retro Shoot - by Amy Brandon from my team

I was delighted when I received a call from Mary (Lee Herrington) from Forever & Ever Events to see if one of our girls from the team would like to do a shoot in Bloomsbury at the Bowling Lanes with 2 of my favorite designers Edwina Ibbotson and Delphine Manivets
Now Amy (Brandon) one of our Artists is a true Ambassador for all that is fun, quirky, chic, stylish and retro. She took the shoot with open arms and here is the evidence!!

*The shoot also featured on the ever popular Rock N' Roll Bride blog.

ollowing her extremely successful 4 Day Intensive Make up & Hair Master Class with me in January , Maritza, who is based in Manchester has since gone on to create some sensational pieces of work, a selection of which I wanted to showcase here. This is what can be achieved, with determination, passion, creativity and most importantly a VISION !
I am very proud of what Maritza has achieved over the past few months, working hard day and night on many test shoots both studio and location, she is one bright star in the making and proud to say we have her as part of the team.
