2017: So far, so good and looking better.

The new year so far has been good.  I've worked with a London stylist on a short film production called A Take Of Free Fittings, about a real charity, Suited And Booted, which helps vulnerable men prepare for job interviews to get their lives back on track by looking professional in order to make the best first impression they can.  On the Friday before the first production day I was running around all over London, or so it felt, doing picks ups,  buying costumes and props for filming on the Saturday and Sunday.  I loved working with Laetitia, the rest of the cast, crew and contributors were great and I loved chatting to Maria who runs Suited And Booted.

The Friday's shopping was a great way to get to know London, and it included a drop off to Burberry on New Bond Street and then to a lovely boutique, Donna Ida, in another part of London.  People have been really helpful with directions and I'm managing to learn my way around quite quickly.  The days on set were quite long but I was kept busy with getting things that were still needed and definitely made myself a good team member.

During conversation Maria told me about another charity which does the same assistance for women, and this organisation, Smart Works, has a branch in Edinburgh.  I tweaked my Image Consultant CV and sent it off with the application form and I'm going for a chat and to see their set up on Friday, so hopefully I'll be volunteering with them soon.

I've got another film coming up back in London in February, a fantastic horror-style music video in Glasgow later in Feb, then a beautiful fantasy shoot and I'm planning to run an editorial styling workshop with a photographer at his studio so have the trial run of that coming up!  I've also got flyers to distribute to attract new image consultancy clients.  And the icing on that massive layer cake is that I've been asked to style a show at Ibiza Fashion Festival in June which I'm stoked about!

Incredibly busy eh?  I'll need to work out the priority list to make it all function well ☺
