For those of you who know me personally, you'll know I'm an actor. Ordinarily I don't tend to talk about work life as this little corner features a different aspect of my life. A shiny one, for example. However, there comes a time when you're doing a self-written, one-woman play and you need to promote like no other actor has ever had to promote. So here we... Poster is featured above, the play details can be found here and tickets can be purchased here. Cheeky pitch...

'I want appreciation, to make an impression; to linger in someone's head for a little too long. Give it to me and I'll say thank you with a smirk, a flutter, a sway, a twinkle. And then I'll wait until the moment's passed to remark, 'sexist pig'. '

Zoe is young, Welsh and maybe a little bit drunk. She's all about the stupid things we say but don't mean, the tragic acts we perform to get noticed, awkward late night phone calls and deleting text messages the next morning. Telling your best mate you'd 'do her' if you were gay and that you fancy her boyfriend a bit. Accidentally flashing a nipple and then wondering if it's a coincidence that all these things happen to you.

Some people attract the drama and others beckon it.

I cannot tell you how lovely it would be to see some of your faces in the audience. The show opens tomorrow evening at 7.30pm and lasts 50 minutes. A warm and large audience is very much welcome.

If you like my writing, then you'll enjoy this. I promise.

Sicily: Part One

I had never attended a wedding in a foreign country but luckily this was put right by our two friends who decided to tie the knot in Sicily - the origin of the Bride's family. Needless to say, I'm tempted to forego our wedding venue deposit and get hitched far afield. 

The freedom and joy of the three-day celebration was palpable and though it may not be for everyone, it certainly seemed right for these guys… and maybe now the boy and I! There are no wedding pictures, as the happy couple haven't published their images yet but I'll share some other bits and bobs with more to come. For now you get hot dog legs, broken-down cars and semi-nudity. Don't say I don't give you anything.

Topshop top & jeans, Dorothy Perkins jacket, Converse All Stars, Gold Coast bag, St Nicholas necklace & Sekonda watch.
A few snaps of a typical weekend for the boy and I. We tend to eat, talk and walk a lot, snapping merrily along the way. I'm merry; he hates snapping… killjoy.

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium

Give me a kitsch concept and I'll run with it. A cat cafe? I was absolutely game when I heard about the newest arrival to Shoreditch. Where else? 

After three months on the waiting list… Ashleigh and I were ready for cat cuddles. And vegan cake. 
Zara top & shorts, Nike trainers and Michael Kors bag.
