In the modern day of infatuation with influencers, I wanted to recreate some truly influential figures from throughout history.
And with it also being mental health awareness month, I want to show how mental illness is something that can affect all of us, even the greatest minds and icons. Frida Kahloโ€™s short life was definitely not an easy one and was hit with many struggles; being involved in a terrible accident that left her unable to have children, a turmoltuous marriage and an identity disorder. She experienced suffering, just as we will all have to in life. But she found an outlet through her art, which still has huge influence today.
If youโ€™re in London, make sure you check out her exhibition thatโ€™s going on at the @vamuseum ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ #thechinfluencerseries

I have been on a bit of a journey with my mental health in the past year. And after taking some time off social media, I got the chance to reflect on issues that are way too apparent in our culture. Issues that we all relate to either consciously or subconsciously on some level, and one of the reasons I needed to take some time out.
Instagram, and particularly the beauty and lifestyle industry, is a breeding ground for insecurities. The perpetual myths whilst being sold this product and that product are terrifying.
I didnโ€™t realise how much it was affecting me and how deeply lost I was getting within a world of judgement and the constant need for validation until I took a step back.
Wherever you are in the world and whatever you are going through right now, I want you to know that you have unlimited ability to create, to love and to care. You donโ€™t need plumper lips, a slimmer waist or thousands of followers to do that, even though society sometimes makes you think you do. Those things do not and will not ever define you.
Find something away from your screen that allows you to breathe and truly connect with yourself. Something that brings you peace and grounds you.
Talk. Listen. I promise you are not alone.

Itโ€™s October which only means one thing! ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŽƒ Tell me some of your fav Halloween films and Iโ€™ll get drawing some of the characters!

@rhymecosmetics sent me some products to try for their #SelfMadeWonder campaign. The initiative is to not only celebrate womens achievements around the world, but to remind us that everything we are capable of is already inside of us! Excited to be a part of spreading such a positive message and getting to try some beautiful products out from a new brand, who are cruelty free and vegan too! #rhymecosmetics

Iโ€™ve really loved reading your comments and messages over the last couple of days!
I wanted some time away from social media and I didnโ€™t know if that was gonna be one month or one year, but 7 months later and I feel excited to be back! I have also been freelancing again and Iโ€™m taking bookings over the summer (London based) so if you need your makeup doing for any event, wedding, prom, night out etc - drop me a message! (This pic is me doing my best friends makeup at her wedding last month!) ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿป
