Showcasing at TOWIB...


So, we had a pretty AWESOME weekend taking part in the fourth installment of The Only Way Is Blogging AKA TOWIB!  If you're a blogger but not heard of it then you are seriously missing out!

It's a jam packed day filled with talks, group discussion, new brand introductions and Q&A sessions on how all things blog related.  I was down for the day to showcase the China Doll Boutique Summer Collection and to meet some fabulous new bloggers - with all the new blogs I have subscribed to there's never going to be a dull moment!

I managed to grab a cheeky few pics before the event started, hopefully I'll get the pro ones through to share them all to you...





If you want to find out more about the event then I suggest you head over to the TOWIB blog --> www.towib.blogspot.com

Behind the scenes at our latest shoot...

Hey peeps!

Note to self - I MUST blog more!!!

It's been super busy at the China Doll offices, I've been working on bringing some amazing new products to the site and FINALLY happy to say they have started to hit the site on a pre-order basis! Take a peek at them here but be quick if you want to get your hands on any as there are very limited quantities of each...

Aside from bringing in pretty new things, I'd spent the month planning our latest shoot. This shoot was the biggest one I had done to date and I faced so many problems along the way so I was sure it was destined to be a disaster! There was so much drama, right up to the day of the shoot, when my last box of samples decided not to arrive and the skies decided to open which resulted to a very very last minute location change!

We originally planned to shoot in this amazing bluebell forest and abandoned caravan park, but the heavy rain and threat of hail was enough to put us off! So we headed over to Stoke Newington to do a shoot at the AMAZING Castle gibson Location, The House Next Door...

Ailera was shooting on the day (I absolutely LOVE this girl!!), I had the fabulous Leah Mabe working her magic on Hair and Make Up and the fabulous Dario styling...

Here are a few sneaky behind the scene snaps which me and the team managed to snap...
















And the models from the day...

Sophie Beaty (on her first ever shoot!)....I spotted at The Clothes Show Live last year and knew she had an amazing face!

Can't wait to show you the final pics!
