Forward motion

Since I got back from Europe I've been feeling especially inspired…

Edinburgh, Scotland


I went home to Scotland for Christmas and it had been the first time I had been home in a whole year. And boy had things changed since last time. Not in Scotland, but in myself. It's like night and day.

Traditional Scottish cuisine: Haggis, neeps & tatties and Fish & chips


The time before last when I went home for the holidays I was not in a good place.. I had a crappy home with virtually nothing apart from a mattress on the floor and a few suitcases worth of clothing. No money, most of my friends were no where to be found.. and I had found myself feeling very alone, and not in the independent way that I feel now. Shit was bleak.

Reunited with my dog, Pixie <3



This past year though, I went home feeling on top of the fucking world, and right on the verge of something fantastic. I'd had a great year and really improved my quality of life. I can feel it in my bones that even more awesome things are ahead and I'm chomping at the bit to get going! I'm rather impatient… The truly amazing thing is, that every one of my friends and family could see this. They really could see how happy I am now, and how inspired I am!! And THAT my friends is a astonishing feeling. Knowing that everyone you hold close to your heart can see a transition from dark to light, and are cheering you on.

So since I got back home not only have I been crazy busy working on new movies & projects, working on my website, getting into the business woman role of things.. but I've also been trying to shoot just for fun as much as I possibly can. There's something about modeling that really drives me. The more I shoot the more accomplished I feel, and the more I want to do. The busier I want to be.

So for your enjoyment, here are some of my favorite picks from the many random photo shoots I've done over the past month. Some of which you will get to see full photo sets of when my website launches … but more on that later….. ^_~

My birthday!!

Happy Birthday to me!!

Born 2/18

One of the best things about my job is that it gave me the opportunity to work for Kink.com, which is now one of my favorite companies to work for. Usually though because I do so much mainstream porn as well as BDSM, it means that I must enforce a strict "no marks" policy. People just don't want to shoot a girl covered in bruises. Unless of course you're into that sort of thing ^_~


However as a little birthday treat, my agent Mark Spiegler gave me some days off specifically so that I could run away to my Master on The Upper Floor and have the living daylights beat out of me. This is something that I requested myself because I wanted to see how far I could push my body, and I love suffering for my Master! <3

Daddy & i


What's also pretty neat is that this was all filmed LIVE on the upper floor, so you guys can all watch as well!!


I love my marks.


photo-73

I love watching how they heal and change colors … from black to purple, green & red. I love wearing them on my body like little badges of honor in the same way a girl scout would be proud to show off her hard earned badges. I suffered well and I ended my night on a complete high! It was truly the best birthday that I can remember having for a very very long time. I was so overwhelmed with intense emotion that all I wanted to do at the end was cry in my Masters lap.. in a good way! I couldn't be more thankful for how the night turned out.


Unfortunately though, as much as I love them, they have got to go! I can't be showing up to shoots looking like a dalmation after all….


Here are some tips for getting rid of bruises FAST:


Use plenty of arnica!! Arnica can be found in either a cream or gel, and it can also be taken orally. I like using a mixture of the two (oral & topical)


photo-74

I also like to use Chinese Woodlock oil, which is traditionally used for muscle aches and blood circulation problems, but I find that it also works amazingly at making bruises magically disappear! A mixture of all of these several times a day is enough to make those beautiful marks vanish, and relatively quickly… unfortunately.



Now it is time to relax! Tomorrow I'm having a little birthday dinner with some of my closest friends! I like birthdays to be a very intimate affair so that I can give everyone my fullest attention. I'm very excited because after I make dinner for all my loved ones I'm going to dress up in this….

… and paint my face with blood (fake) and turn into a crazy animal until the wee hours of the morning! I'm very excited!!! I have all this time off while I heal so I'm using it to the fullest extent that I can! I think I will also get myself some new furry additions to my dirty cottage as a present to myself and I'm also going to go see one of my favorite bands ever, Die Antwoord! It will be the perfect birthday week!


Now I'm off to go steam an artichoke and dip it in melted garlic butter. All for me!!! Buhahahahaha!!!! IT'S MY MUTHA-FUCKIN BIRTHDAY WEEK BITCHEZ!!!


photo-75

I added lemon, crushed whole garlic cloves and some salt to the water to add flavor as it steams! Yummerz!!!


Until next time my kittlings <3

Mi casa

sd2-028
Photography: Van Styles

I love my new flat.

It's like living in a little cottage in the middle of the city. Which has secretly always been my dream place to live. Think of the teachers house in the movie "Matilda"... That's it!!

Moving day!!



Yeah, I know. Not very badass. I believe that people think I'm a lot meaner than I am in real life because that's the look I embody. It's my "character". And although I do have a very dark & twisted sense of humor with a love for violence, I'm actually pretty down to earth and extremely awkward.


The realization that people might think I'm "mean" or aloof has been floating to the surface more and more these days through the questions that I'm asked in interviews and by hearing the things that people say about me.


I think this is why……


When I was a teenager and lived in the darkest depths of ned-ville Scotland, I used to get A LOT of shit.


I was made fun of for being american.

For having bushy hair.

For having a fuller ass.

For being a geeky little jesus-camp-nobody.


So of course I finally cracked and went a little crazy and turned to the gods of metal. During this transition I became your average angst filled teenager (as one does) and would try and look as mean and weird as humanly possible.

Age 15


This in turn worked in my favor and people stopped messing with me as much. It got to the point where people would actually avoid fighting with me.

The technique I achieved is similar to when animals make themselves bright colors that scream "Danger! I'm poisonous!" but really they wouldn't do a damn thing. That's me. I'm a big ol' softy.

Tic & Tac chillin' out


If someone pisses me off I would much rather simply cut them out of my life and pretend they don't exist than to start a fight. Which I think is actually a lot more annoying to people. Especially people that feed off of drama.


LA is unfortunately filled with people like this so I've been finding myself hiding away inside of my cottage for lengths at a time. I don't even have to worry about getting lonely because my little nest is haunted and I've made friends with the ghost. He/she is the best room mate ever. Always listening, yet never interfering. Except for sometimes making the lights flicker for no reason. But I think that's just it's way of trying to get my attention.


I honestly think that's the only reason why ghosts will sometimes cause such a ruckus. I mean, I would get pretty annoyed too if I kept trying to say hello to a "fleshy" and they just ignored me all the time. "I'm trying to say hello you rude fuck!!"

I'm getting waaaay off track here….


Anyway!… Here are some snaps from around my little cottage in the city!
