Welcome to the UK and the home of the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL), the league currently comprises of ten teams based across the UK, in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
It’s 12am, 11/1/2016 and I’m primed and ready to watch my second game of the weekend. Since it’s a home game I’ve been sporting my home jersey, since you know… They haven’t lost when I’ve worn it on the day and hey, it’s a hockey thing, those who know will understand. The puck drops and play begins. Ovechkin makes a shot on goal within the first minute of play and I like everyone else around the world watching are hoping and praying it goes in.

But I can finally say I’m going to see Tokio Hotel in concert. March 6th 2015, I will be heading to London’s Islington Assembly hall to see the boys for the first time live. I’m beyond excited for this!
I see people sharing inspirational quotes like this all the time. I’m the sort to scroll past them

Jam-packed schedules are something that busy models have to contend with. Little sleep and constant jet-setting is often part of the lifestyle. This makes getting an interview somewhat difficult. However, for me it’s 3am and I’ve managed to track Briaen down in San Francisco Airport while he’s waiting for a connecting flight to LA to get home again after another crazy week in his life.
I was asked recently why I do what I do when interviewing people because I don’t work for a magazine or a newspaper or any “real” publication. It wasn’t something I’d actually been asked before by anyone and it made me think. Continue reading Advice | Thank you for reminding me
