Every morning, since we had a flurry of snow for Christmas and Boxing day, I jump out of bed, fling open the curtains and hope to see a Winter Wonderland outside my window. Which will shock the socks of anyone who know me because I hate the cold.
Why my sudden obsession? Because I bought the most amazing faux fur cape and I’ve been desperate to do a snow shoot in it. I had it all planned in my head, but Mother Nature just wouldn’t play ball – that is until two days ago.
I woke up to a thick layer of soft, fluffy snow and it was still falling. I don’t think I’ve been so excited to see the world turn into a snowman’s dream since I was a kid!
The look of my outfit shoot was kind of inspired by the Disney movie Frozen which, for some bizarre reason, I’ve been obsessed with. Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Disney per se (apart from the historical inaccuracies in some of their films, their addiction to size zero heroines, ugliness is immoral / beauty is moral – I could go on; but that’s a whole other blog post), I’m just not a massive fan of the company itself. Although I have to say, I have visited “The Happiest Place On Earth” on several occasion and had a blast.
Whichever way you cut it, Frozen seems to get under your skin – there was even a debate on Radio 4 about the nations obsession. So I figured, what the Hell just go with it. So I donned my fur cape, added some plaits to my hair and went out to twirl and play in the snow.
