Victoria’s Secret Swim 2013 Shoot

Last September Turks and Caicos Productions assisted with a Victoria’s Secret photo shoot, see the 2013 Swim Sneak Peak above.  Check out the bevy of beauties in the clip below who flew to paradise, the one and only Turks & Caicos Islands, to show off the “sexiest swim season ever, starring the hottest suits under the sun.”

Big thanks to VS for showing the world the beauty of Turks and Caicos, our islands sparkle just as much as their gorgeous girls in their collections in these videos and images!

Special Announcement

Lovely photos by brilliant
In early December I styled for a photo shoot that I had been conceptualizing since September (literally).  The client; one tough cookie and hard critic.  Yup . . . . ME.
It’s pretty much impossible to style AND be the subject simultaneously, but thanks to our brilliant photographer Andy, the ideas and inspirations leapt to life through his lense.
I pulled out my props and set the scene and then promptly laid down on the job while Andy did all the work.  I am sure he enjoyed not having to share his viewfinder with me! 
Can’t thank him enough, this shoot was loads of laughs.  As I am not a huge fan of posting personal photos, I’ll let the readers who have interest head on over to brilliants blog post to see and read more!

Less Plastic Please

  Last month Alison was kind enough to write to me, linking to this absolutely incredible infographic she helped create:
Please Include Attribution to With This Graphic Plastic Infographic
Do you have any Eco-conscious goals for 2013?  I have many; start a vegetable garden, promote our native vegetation through many field+guide+Friday posts, plan a TCI rubbish-runners event, find ways to make fleurdelysvilla and tcmillwork more eco-friendly, and in everyday life waste less and recycle more.  Thanks Alison and comrades for continuing to wage war on plastics and spread awareness on this very important issue!
