Hello, Old Friend

It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? If anyone is interested in a very long story, read on. If not, there’ll be a TL;DR at the bottom for you.

Shortly after my last blog post (we never did win that World Cup, after all) I decided I was going to focus wholly on my modelling, and take a step back from the blog. All went well for a while, until I had an 8 day stint in London which, well, didn’t go quite so well. It was decided, mutually, that, since I would need to spend infinitely more time overseas than I already was doing, I would take a giant leap back from the European modelling circuit.

Why didn’t I start my blog back up then, you may ask? Well, because I’ve been working on a couple of novels, and to be quite frank this year has been a big, hard adjustment for us all. I’ll dedicate a whole post to that in the new year, once I’ve got the festive season out of the way.

You may now be wondering, why have I not changed the name of my blog? Well, I still have representation here in Soutb Africa, and over in Germany. And I still do bits and pieces, here and there. Expect a video, starring both me and Pete, to come soon, and I’ll share mine and Stevie’s full shoot and cover story for Your Family in the next few days.

TL;DR I’ve taken a step back from modelling and will be restarting my blog ASAP

Welcome back to the wonderful, chaotic world of Mumming and Modelling. Hope you enjoy it as much as last time!

PS – I chopped off my hair, by the way!

Minaj Appreciation Post

No news here… nothing interesting to report. Everything is just ticking over happily in our household. Stevie is back at school, Elia is growing like a weed (she’s 4 months old! In 2 months or so she’ll be on solids – argh!). It was my birthday yesterday, and I have toothache where I need a filling replaced.

Birthday celebrations – spot the baby!

This is just a Nicki Minaj appreciation post.

I love Nicki. I always have, ever since Young Money released ‘Bedrock’ in late 2009. Some people may not agree with me, but I think she’s amazing. Shes beautiful, in a non-conformist kind of way, she’s very talented (she can sing, rap and act, writes her own music and somehow keeps people interested in her through many alter egos) and doesn’t settle for being treated badly. She’s my kind of woman! If I had a girl-crush, Nicki Minaj would be it. That’s all – no prize-winning writing here, people. Just a simple fangirl moment over my favourite famous lady.
