Wheelchair User in Brighton

Recently I enjoyed a day out in Brighton with my husband and a Brazilian friend who was visiting from the US, Debora pedroso from Viagem Acessivel.

Brighton is a seaside resort on the south coast of England.  It is a very popular destination for tourists and is known for its diverse communities, quirky shopping areas and large arts, cultural and music scene.

We travelled by car had a look around some shops, pushed along the seafront, had some great food and enjoyed playing the arcade games on the famous pier.

The day was topped off by a wonderful show of nature and you will need to watch the video to find out more.

Interview on Fashion with Samantha Renke-

I had the honour to interview Samantha Renke talking about fashion for my youtube channel. At this point I am sure you already know Sam… but below is an intro I found in the Daily Mail.  I hope you like our video. We talk about Parallel London, how to be a model, VisAble, fashion in general, the things Sam likes to wear, etc… I won’t tell you everything so not spoil the video.
In the end, we ended up with 2 videos.
Enjoy it and please leave your comments.

I had the opportunity to do this photo shoot with amazing brands like Paul Magen, Valdenize

Soares, Judith Leiber represented by Sangeeta Assomull and with the fantastic photographer Sikandar. The stylist was Saskia Rowlans and the makeup was by Hanna Soraya.

The outfits are amazing. It was a very cold day, around -1 degrees Celsius and we were taking the photographs outside. I think you will agree that the results are stunning. Special thanks to Saskia for putting everything together.

The lifestyle of a model is not all glamour. It requires a lot of hard work sometimes in extreme temperatures.  It was a great pleasure to work on this project with such great people.  We had great fun working as a team and the results you can see in the video below.

If you would like to follow any of these brands or professionals on Instagram here are their addresses.

Behind the Scars Project

Revealing imperfections can be intimidating in a society obsessed with photo filters and social media selfies.

… Speaking to FEMAIL, London-based photographer Sophie Mayenne explained she launched her project ‘Behind The Scars‘ to give people a chance to share the stories behind their scars – and how they learned to embrace them. 

Each person featured has a personal story which they’ve lived with and transformed into a way to empower themselves. Here, some share their story with FEMAIL…
