Editing is like killing your story, then bringing it back to life again slowly. It’s that other thing I do besides post selfies. Write drunk, edit sober.
Art is what you can get away with.
Following on from my post yesterday, you all now know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I was a small part of this video below and hopefully of other of their events coming up also. This video is amazing and I still tear up every time I watch it! See the official website and share the video on yourselves!!
Getting all done up and shooting for the video then rushing to the first Day of Fashion Week!
Some of you might know that many years ago I used to do Irish Dancing. When I say “do” I mean absolutely obsessive about it. Living, breathing, eating and sleeping it. Passion quite simply put.
However I didn’t realise that Coco Rocha who also recently featured on America’s Next Top Model was scouted at an Irish Dancing competition when she was much younger! She became well known as the Irish Dancing model.
Model Coco Rocha talks about her early life as Irish Dancer before entering the world of high fashion and her Irish jig down Jean Paul Gaultiers runway in 2007, dubbed by American Vogue “The Coco Moment”.
JIG is the new documentary on the world of Irish dance by Sue Bourne. Released across America June 17th, 2011.
Additional filming, editing and production by James Conran with kind assistance and footage from the office of Jean Paul Gaultier.

I’m finding Fashion events can be just as fun.. however I sure was nervous before attending the NZ Fashion Festival Opening party… I’m sure when Fashion Week rolls around I’ll be more more confident…
I submitted a video for Jenene Crossan (Freer) workshop on Monday –5 Simple Steps to become a Magazine Editor… Answering the question – How has Blogging effected your life and a top tip! I’ve been Blogging since pre 2007 (MySpace – heh) so its been part of my life for a while now, and I still love it!
“Oh to be a magazine editor! Working in magazines has always been considered one of the most glamourous and coveted jobs for women.” (Just saying – Isn’t this a little gender stereotype?) Aychblog.com also posted this.
I recorded this about 15 times before I was happy with it.. and even then I still think I sound a little squeaky!
I snapped few phone photos while we were there – and some others have popped up – thanks SnapStar!

Myself and Hannah of AychBlog.com have been running a wee project on Ponsonby Radio called the Blogger Babes, where we bring our Blog topics to the radio-waves..
It all started off with one of those #Shit___Say so we though why not come up with a whole lot of things that Bloggers say. Lets face it we are a little tech savvy and talk about a whole lot of social media stuff which not ever Joe Blogs uses or knows about.
|Surely not.. ? LOL|
Before we get ours out, here is a Burlesque version of the same which made me giggle… Yes some Dancers are a little Diva!
The last couple of weeks / weekends have been crazy.
The First Roller Derby of the Season! Wow it was awesome.. I’ve a video to upload when I finally get a spare hour to edit and upload.
Then an awkward 30th – ever attended a party of the EX of someone you’ve got an interest in. Seriously! Its like trying to get on with someone elses used underwear. Like sloppy seconds with that used stench hanging around… Yea awkward.
Then after that I had to go perform at Salvation’s 5th birthday party. It was fun, but I was still feeling slightly sick and drained so it was hard to have the energy levels to interact with a whole lot of people I didn’t know.
From there I REALLY wanted to go to Kitty Club, but by this time it was 2AM and I popped a friend a txt and he’d already left – from a guy that like looking at hot dressed up women it was a bad sign, so I didn’t bother… Maybe I should have.
From THERE I went to Techy as Seba, and found a very nice barstool -set in front where I could see everything that was going on, and got the fuck off my sore feel Oooowwwwweeeee Poor old me! Gosh I was worn out.
That same weekend was the Erotica show – I decided to spend up large…
Current mood: accomplished
