As some of you know I received my second cover in a row of Black Hair Magazine!! Woooop wooop!
It was an absolute pleasure to work with the Black Hair Team again!!
So as you know, I never leave you out! Here is your exclusive backstage pass to this editorial shoot.
also, get an exclusive up close and personal look at shots that were published and unpublished!!! *grabs glass of wine*


First Came that MUST HAVE Hair and Make-up prep..The shoot was for L’oreal Mizani so of course… Mizani Products were used! It was a pleasure to style for Mizani! I am such a big fan of their products! This part always takes a bit long while working on set.. but I love being nosy and having a look at how other amazing creatives work! Also, here’s a lil’ sneak peek at some jewelry I was using that day!

Here is our first page spread!! I loved the contrast in this shoot Purity versus dark Edge!! I was in love with the Bitching and junkfood bodysuit to the left.. the velvet texture is amaaaazing!!

Here is Page Spread number two! I loved the whole idea of mixing the feather dress in with the two white dresses!!

If you want to create a neck-piece look like the one on the right?.. don’t be afraid of layering pieces up! I paired a body chain with a choker Necklace (Topshop and Kenza Accessories).

Here is Page spread number three!! it just screams Angels vs Demons… and best of all a closer look at our Cover shot.. without all the writing of course!! 

The cover look was a PRIME example of how you can revamp a dress you have had in your wardrobe for a while! I layered a detailed Bralette on top of a Lipsy dress to give it a fresh AW12 ‘fetish trend’ look… I think it works!!!


A sneak peek look at a shot that was not published… you lucky lot!!

Page spread number four!! Want to go for the fetish/edgy trend for AW12 and don’t and scared its just to goth for you?… how about some Smokey eyes, a statement dress.. but then lighten up the outfit with some bright/delicate accessories (to the left) like I done!!

Last but not least… Another shot that was not published…

Well that’s the end of the ‘behind the scenes’ pics.. why not take a look below for a close up at all the shots!!

Enjoy! xxxo

    However, there are several online interfaces available where one
    needs to click on different types of options to send HTML code in email
    or to generate HTML code. There are many web designers who charge
    huge amount of money to do this job for you. Decide now because if you are
    a weight lifter, you will not build the chest that
    you are looking for.
