Photo Diary #1

A few snaps of what I've been up to recently... 

I don't think I blogged this picture, but here's me and Jessica Ennis! I had a little chat with her about her health and beauty regime. It's here if you wanted to have a read! 

Chilling in Alex's Simpsons slippers...

 Leafing through Betty Magazine... It really is beautiful!

Alex's dad bought me this amazing printed wooden block... Never were truer words said!

Speaking of which, here's your daily Roxy!

The neon nails I sported this week - I used a Jessica polish.

I got a fringe cut in the other day. I'm trying to grow my hair into a little bob and at first my theory was to keep the front long so it could grow into a Frankie Sandford-esque do, but it was looking pretty floppy and unflattering (see above) so I'm switching up my plan and keeping the fringe short and growing out the rest... We'll see how it goes! Or should I say grows!
My face is in Company!!!! I was in the contributors section in the new issue to highlight the behind-the-scenes pics and videos I got at our Fearne cover shoot. I genuinely cried a bit when I got the email saying I'd be on the contributors page! 

Tonight I interviewed JLS for Company ahead of their gig at iTunes festival. Nearly downed one of these bad boys at the bar for dutch courage, I was SO nervous! Settled for a much less expensive Rescue Remedy pastille instead. 

I needn't have been nervous, the guys were SO nice! They were sat on a sofa and invited me to sit (or should that be squish) right in between them! GREAT for picking up the sound on the dictaphone, appalling for my blood pressure! 

And a bit of #foodporn for you! I went to The Picture House with my friend Jen at the weekend. Got a lovely burger with skin-on fries. Delicious. A must-visit if you're in Canterbury, and 2 for 1 with a Taste Card on weeknights! 

And last night, Alex and I went for dinner at Café Du Soleil with his parents and I had the most beautiful Grilled Calamari to start! Another must-visit! 

Annnnd here's my breakfast choice of the moment. Nutella on toast! In case there was any doubt... I'm usually running late to the train station so eat the toast on the way. Then it takes me a good hour or two to realise I've got Nutella all over my face. Sexeh. 

I'm off to prepare for my stint at Bluewater this weekend! I'm doing a craft masterclass for Company at the Prima Homemade show! Come along and see me if you're there! Full deets HERE
