The Lost Narrative Defined

I have written a few blogs over the last week or so that while I stand by the commentary I did feel it was ott and dramatic and deserved to be pulled so if anyone is wondering why its simple. I do stand by it but just decided that its not worth the hassle and I want to focus my energies on better things. While this may seem like an admission of guilt its far, far from it. Call me a primadonna if you wish, I really don’t mind. I want to clarify a few small points and clear the air before I start my run at defining what the Lost Boys and Lost Girls story is as a narrative and visual concept, it has a little touch of darkness to it and has been brewing in my head for a long time.

same shit different day

In addition to this as a means to move forward I spoke to one of my scriptwriters and will be sitting this weekend sketching, going through old designs and knuckling down to do the creative and commercial work I have been promising myself I would get done. Calls will be made to those who have shown loyalty and I am going to reinvest not only in my own business again but in the work I have been postponing to support others.

This does not mean I will not be available for clients, far from it, what it does mean is that priority goes to my own work and I will be extremely selective who I work with from this point on.

While the sentiment may be same shit different day, it won’t be my groundhog day and I can see a way to end the current narrative. The problems are no longer mine and I can finally put this to bed and give myself the opportunity to showcase my own skills.

Watch this space, The Lost Stories (combined with Behind the Brushes) is coming back with some fantastic narratives and beauty launches thanks mainly to my connections to various PR agencies which will allow me to give a little time to clearing the cobwebs creatively and finally doing justice to the Lost Girls and the Lost Boys concept that I have on paper created giving it a more visual sense of what its all about.

My Ideal Destination and KitKase My Ideal Package

Something I have been putting off is travelling, with various personal, professional and financial restraints on my time I really felt that it was for the best that I stick to one place and spot for a while but as you can imagine now that I am a little freer on the time front the urge to travel has started to make me feel the need to move again. Yes the weather is improving here in Scotland but I do miss South Asia and for work I am really beginning to think its time to move on.

The Road Less Travelled

What does have to do with My Ideal Destination and KitKase you ask? Well its simple. I love the level of service that the Ideal destination team brings and when it comes to luggage no one is better than KitKase to help pack my gear and take to the road again.

A major part of the appeal of My Ideal Destination is there concierge service, for those unfamiliar with this and having not travelled for business as much as I have done over the years, there are some major plus points to this (and for anyone looking to take a break), the team are focused on customer service and for me that allows my mind to be set and focused on the task at hand; locations, meetings and business.

They can and do make recommendations and if requested bookings on your behalf. As a makeup artist and writer (With producer credits coming soon) I love the A list treatment the company offers, it does make me feel like one of my idols from the Golden age of Hollywood. Making them and ideal Honeymoon agency or for that weekend getaway where you just want to be able to relax and enjoy the trip rather than worry about researching restaurants etc before you go.

As to luggage, I have to admit, KitKase is a must have for me. There cabin friendly suitcases are both eye-catching and practical with the added edge of being a Luxury travel companion. For me there is something special about the Kases that just makes them perfect for the work I am planning and how my business will change over the coming months. Not only that but as a weekend or short trip case, Kitkase is a perfect addition to your travels and high on my list of recommendations for any looking for something fun and luxurious in the same package.

Both of these companies are working on something special together which I will be talking about soon and I am really happy that I have them in my working arsenal and can talk about them.
