Hello again! two posts in one day, lucky you! I just wanted to update everyone on daily life stuff really! So I’ve officially finished uni for christmas now which is exciting, means I can do lots of overtime at work to save for Olivia *see previous post* and I can get more films/shoots done too!! To round up this term, my course put together an exhibition of our work to show case on the 4th December. We had five days to plan and put together the exhibition and during this time I made a short film to document the process, which was really fun! Watch it here! Im not sure if I’ve mentioned before but I work in House of Fraser and I love it! I love the place, the people, so much fun… I started in October, currently a christmas temp but hopefully they’ll keep me on!!

Other fun stuff that’s happened recently… It was mine and Jack’s FOUR YEAR anniversary at the beginning of this month and he took me for dinner at Cotê in Kensington! The food was so so so good, if you get a chance to go, do it!! It was such a beautiful, cosy restaurant and I can’t wait to go back again! Ive also recently started an online portfolio for all of my creative/industry/uni work to send out to employers and companies and I’m actually really proud of it so far! *photo above is a little taster* I don’t have a huge amount of work on there but I can build that up over time. Go have a look if you’re interested, find it here!

I’ll be travelling all over the place this christmas with Jack. We’re at his to begin with, and then we have four different christmases to go to over that week and i’ll be filming the whole thing so watch out for that!! Head on over to my YouTube channel and subscribe so you can keep up to date with new videos!

 

 

Rhinoplasty: ITS HAPPENING…

Screen Shot 2015-12-15 at 16.17.33

**Slightly different post but this is really personal to me and something that I want to do to help others… This is something I’ve wanted for as long as I can remember, its not something I’m doing for my friends, or family or boyfriend, I’m doing it for me and only me so please keep that in mind. This may come as a bit of a shock to most of you reading this (if you know me) and it might seem quite sudden, but its really not! The few people I have told have been really supportive and this feature on my blog is to help every single one of you to understand the process, why people want it, what you go through emotionally, and just a little insight to my personal experience. My new nose has been named Olivia (not by me) so if I ever refer to Olivia in future posts or videos, this is why! Whether you’re wanting to have it done yourself, or you know someone who is going through it, have a read 😀 **

ANYWAY, hey everyone!

So, as you’ve probably guessed from the title… Im finally getting my nose done!(eeekk)  For the past seven+ years I have been really unhappy with the size and shape of my nose I am finally starting to make the necessary steps to change that. This is something I always knew I would do, and now I’m finally in the position where I can make my own decision to do it which is super exciting! From reading so many other blog posts about this subject, I want to have a whole feature on my blog dedicated to my rhinoplasty journey so I can help people when they’re in my position.

My background story;

Ive always disliked my nose, ever since i was about 10/11 years old, but as I got to secondary school, I just started to hate it more and more. It’s something that bothers me on a daily basis because I see it all the time. I try to hide my nose in selfies(you may notice a strong “half face” theme on my instagram, the photo above is an example!), I get super uncomfortable in pictures with other people and I absolutely hate sitting in cars etc, anything where I know people can see my side profile. When I was really young, maybe 2 or 3 years old, I fell up some stairs in my garden and smashed the bridge of my nose on a brick step!(typical) I Now have a hump in the bridge of my nose that makes my nose look broken. The rest of my nose is all quite big too so all round… not great!! I started considering rhinoplasty when I was 14 years old, I started researching the procedures, clinics and prices but not too much because I was in school and so young that I wasn’t really sure what I was doing. In the last year or two I have been doing more extensive research and am finally starting the process properly. Ahh.

So this is a visual idea for you of what I’m working with right now (Im on the right obviously)

Thanks to the power of photoshop, below is an idea of what I ideally want(left) against what I have now(Right)

I just want the bridge to be thin, straight and ever so slightly curved, the tip to be smaller and thinner and everything just smaller and cuter! *praying*

So whats next?

Research! Ive already done mine but before you book any appointments, make sure you research as much as you possibly can!! My next post will help you with that if you feel a bit lost! Any questions, leave a comment or come and say hello on my social media! Stay tuneddddddd x
