Day 2 and we're rolling smoothly...

The fact that I am posting for two consecutive days gives me a positive feeling about this blog, usually I get bored/run out of things to say/think no one is reading, by day one. But guess what...I'm not bored/I still have things to ramble about/and if no one is reading, well then I am writing for my own sake and that's good enough for me.
Today's pictures come from around my house. As my sister recently said to me "I love your house, it's just so weird, you never know what you're going to see". It's quite true, it may be ramshackle, dusty, ant-infested, but it is home to a growing  collection of odds and ends. Being a fashion stylist and having a flatmate who is a hair stylist, we tend to accumulate a rather growing amount of, how do I put this creatively, hmm...well...we have a crap-tonne of cool shit yo. From wigs and stripper heels to portraits of Saddam and dwarves (fake, don't worry, I'm not some mentalist who traps little people in my house), it is really the kind of place where you can find just about anything.

To date, I have shot one men’s fashion editorial (for the now defunct Omikron Antras) and about four random shoots for Omikron, Cosmopolitan, etc. The cool thing about my house is that it has the ability to be transformed to suit whatever style I need for my shoot. I think that is the true mark of a fashionable person, you have the ability to transform yourself depending on your mood, and I’m glad that as a stylist I have a house that does the same. (It especially comes in handy when I’m feeling lazy and don’t want to leave the house to do my shoot-haha don’t tell on me)

Another reason I thought it might be nice is because we’re all secretly voyeurs just a little bit, and I know I really like seeing glimpses inside peoples houses. So for all of you who haven’t seen my house, here is a little peek… until The Selby decides to come by and take some much better pictures that is…
