Healthy eating and two shoots

Hi guys! It feels like aaaages since I've written an entry, but in reality, it's only been like a week haha. I think I blog too much. In the past week, I've been trying to eat more healthily. I don't think I really had a reason when I started, but my skin is already looking a lot nicer! I've also started running, because I've heard that you deal with hot weather better if you're fit, and as I'm meant to be going to Japan in a little over a week, and I don't usually do so well with heat. I might have left it a bit late, but I guess it's worth a try!
Here's a healthy ice lolly I made:
It's made of greek yoghurt, strawberries and raspberries. So delicious!

I've also been drinking my body weight in green tea every day haha. I think that may also have something to do with my skin looking better.

Today and yesterday I did photo shoots. 
Yesterday's was a lot of fun, despite being freezing cold. The photographer was lovely; after we got out hair and make up done, he bought the whole team (2x models, make up artist, hair stylist) lunch at a Chinese restaurant. 
Hair and make up

After that, we all piled into a taxi to go to Hampstead Heath, where we were shooting. It was done in a forest-ish area. We were styled in a floaty, slightly mori-esque way. We had to use own clothes, though. It's completely different to what I normally wear, but this is what I came up with:
I got this top/dress thing in Thailand last summer, but had never worn it. I quite like it though, so I might try and put together a better outfit with it. 

I wasn't really expecting much from the shoot (the mood board they sent me was very vague and not particularly exciting), but some of the photos I saw looked amazing, and I had a lot of fun. The photographer only had a vague idea of what he wanted, as he said he prefers to just see what happens, which I think is a good way of doing it. A lot of my individual shots ended up being inspired by Alice in Wonderland, which was pretty cool.

Today's shoot was good too. It was a very last-minute hair/beauty shoot. It was in a studio, and I ate a lot of grapes. 8) Not sure what else to say about it haha, but it looked like there were some good shots. 
They curled one side of my hair:

There were three other models:

That's a wig haha. It was so nice! We did quite a few shots together because we have similar hair/wig.

I leave you with this song:
I was really surprised when the opera-like singing started haha, but I really like it.
