CANCER: Most of you have probably switched off already, and that’s fine, the word itself gets thrown around so much you eventually become numb to it. But the statistics are hard to ignore – 1 in 3, ONE in THREE, women and 1 in TWO men are diagnosed with Cancer at some stage. Imagine a third of every woman you know, and HALF of your male circle of friends all being diagnosed with Cancer? I’ll admit it, I’ve had friends suffer losses from Cancer before, but it’s hard to really understand this insidious disease until it comes knocking on your back door, and you watch someone you love rapidly deteriorate before you. I’ve watched my dad go from this big, burly, black man built like a brick shithouse turn into this frail old man who can barely get out of bed. How FUCKED up is it, that science can drop a man from space to break the sound barrier? It can detect the EXACT age of a fossil from millions of years ago. We can CREATE a human heart using stem cells! You can get Bluetooth inserted in your Pacemaker so if you live rural, doctors from the city can call in and check your results without you even knowing… Science has advanced EONS in the last decade, and yet, we still can’t come up with a cure for a disease that kills tens of thousands of people every year. It just baffles me. I’m not looking for attention or support, my family has had plenty of time to prepare ourselves for this. Just really think about it. 30% of Cancers are preventable. Healthy diet, exercise, quit smoking and reduce alcohol intake is ALL it takes to reduce the risk – and so many people (Gen Yers especially) just don’t get it. I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone, but chances are, you or a family member are going to have to deal with it at some stage. WHY NOT take the steps to reduce it? And donate, please. Without donations, The Cancer Council can’t advance studies into a cure, and the harsh reality is – you may lose someone you love. Sorry to get so morbid today, but FUCK, pay attention. Good Health, its vital.
Pretty chuffed with this set, though I don’t think I have the patience for #photography haha #photoshoot #model #makeupartist @dee89_r (Taken with Instagram)
#NoMakeup on left vs #ElementTwo #airbrush #foundation on right.. Can’t say this foundation has blown me out of the water like it has every other #makeupartist .. But there’s no doubt that it is a beautiful, natural foundation that looks and feels like #skin .. Absolutely shits all over #Temptu (Taken with Instagram)
Peekin’ it!! My awesome #headpiece for the #wedding - the #bride letting her #bridesmaids express their personality instead of chucking everyone in matchy matchy spew outfits :P (Taken with Instagram)

I don’t like children.
Nor have I EVER liked children.
I didn’t even like children when I was a child.
And I don’t think babies are cute. In fact, quite the opposite.
If I tell you that your child is cute, I mean it! Because I never tell anyone their child is cute, because society tells me “if you have nothing nice to say, than don’t say it at all”……
…… and then there was Iggy.
Spawned seed of @tinabombina & @steven_mayer (follow them on Instagram for more pictures on the cutest kid in the entire universe)
Seriously, this kid has SO much personality for someone who’s spent all of 4 months on this earth. The constant updates and images of Iggy keeps me gushing. I can’t get enough!! Iggy is the sole reason that I’ve become a clucky mess of late, and I can only hope that if I ever spawn a child, that it comes out as cute and bubbly and full of personality as this little poppet. <3

I see a lot of pregnancy shoots kicking around, but they all scream ‘tacky and unoriginal’ (no offence to the mummas to be, and good on you for capturing such a special memory in time).. however, I saw this shoot with Julia Restoin Roitfield in the Newsagency the other day on the cover on I-D mag, and I could NOT get over how amazing the entire shoot was! it excudes originality, and this mumma looks like a Victorias Secret Angel even though she’s ridiculously, heavily pregnant! Kinda makes me wanna get knocked up and do a rad shoot… although, I’m sure it helps when you team up with a Vogue stylist (who also happens to be your mum) and one of the worlds greatest photogs!
