Met Gok Wan today in Soho. How handsome is he! I must tell you that the man you see in How to Look Good Naked is the exactly the same person in the flesh. He’s honest, funny, personable and loves fashion. Don’t think for a moment that he’s just a tv presenter talking about fashion – he’s not, he really is a fashion stylist and has worked in fashion for over a decade!

I love Marijoli by Swiss designer Marielle Byworth she’s so sweet and fun and of course I love her jewelery, especially her silver cuffs. I featured her cuff in one of my shoots in December.
Madonna, Kate Moss and Nelly Furtado are also fans! Marijoli is available at Nude Contemporary Jewellery in London
Marijoli is featured in Vogue.com!

I like working in a new studio, meaning one that is new to me. Jasmine Studios is an old Victorian school that’s been converted and it even has a Starbucks- I know you either love Starbucks or hate it, but I hate smoking more and it’s smoke free. (London goes smoke free July 1st!!!!) You might not think it really matters where you work but sometimes it does make a difference when you work in a nice environment. You’d think oh, all you need is 4 white walls but when you shoot all the time, the space (and the staff) make a difference. Of course everyone on the team has different requirements, ie hair & make -up might need different height chairs, good lighting etc. Me, I don’t really need much, just a rail, iron, ironing board and steamer and I have all of these anyway, but of course it’s nicer when the studio has them, most of studios do and of course the photographer has all sorts of requirements…

Ok, I don’t usually gripe but for the past couple of weeks I took the tube at 8am every morning and again during rush hour in the evening. (I was going to a studio for a shoot). Anyway the tube is quite full and people push & shove, but that’s not the real problem. The problem is people picking their nose and I happen to be sitting right beside them. When it’s not busy I just usually get up and move, but when the tube is packed there is just nowhere to move to. Part of me wants to offer the person a tissue but really I just need to get away. Also it’s not just the picking of the nose that bothers me, one guy looked like he was mining and then having a small feast. Yuck.
Etiquette – In general do not touch your hands to your face, but if you must
blow your nose do it gently and use a tissue.

After days and days of catalogue shoots make up artist Carla B and I needed some inspiration, so we headed off to Palette, which is not too far from Highbury Islington station. It felt like like heaven, so many amazing well-chosen vintage dresses and accessories. They also have some lovely London Labels such as Avsh Alom Gur and a red and white, oh so me, polka dot blouse by Sara Berman. I loved the vintage Comme des Garcons hat too! So much shopping to do!!!
