Extra… Extra… the online profile

You may be curious how my adventure as a background artist signed to Industry Casting is taking shape…

After being registered with the agency on 16th August the next stage was the photoshoot for their website. However Industry have to adhere to allowing a 30 day cooling off period before they can create your online profile. This means they do not arrange for your photographs to be taken for this profile until 30 days have passed from your initial registration.

On Sunday 18th September I had the necessary portrait shots taken.

I am really pleased with my online profile and both the pictures they have chosen. When I get organised I will send a disk to Industry and they will provide me with a copy of all the shots from my photoshoot.

I have still not been offered any bookings. I believe this is partly due to the obligatory cooling off period and also because my availability has been limited mainly due to my am dram adventure.

I am hoping that now my profile is online and my time is less restricted my adventure as an Extra will now get some wings… I will of course keep you posted…

Thanks to Zazzle for their tee shirt image above please check out their website to help me say thank-you.

The Grand Opening of my September Glossy Box

When I arrived home from my yoga class yesterday my September Glossy Box was waiting for me. I wasn’t expecting it because I had not received a dispatch notice and last month my Boudoir Prive box arrived first. I had to put my first impressions review on hold until today because I was busy yesterday on my acting adventure: learning lines and attending a rehearsal for the PADOS production of Willy Russell’s Breezeblock Park.

Although this is my fourth Glossy Box the super gorgeous packaging still excites me, I just love the layers of anticipation as you tear open the outer box, lift the lid on the inner box, untie the pink ribbon and carefully tease open the tissue paper to reveal…

Dead Sea Spa Magik – Salt Brushing

Two generous 50g Sachets. Smells of orange Lucozade on opening. This is one for me to try and report back on. Whilst my preference is obviously for full-sized products or failing that dinky mini product samples ideally in the same or similar packaging as the original. I have no objections to receiving sachets in monthly subscription boxes. There is also a 25% discount for Glossy Box subscribers.

HD Brows – Eye&Brow Palatte

Wow… this must certainly be the star product of this months Glossy Box. It’s full-sized and fabulous. The kit includes an applicator and I also got a double ended High Definition Brows applicator with a spongy smudging tool at one end and an angle brush at the other… Bonus! However because I am blond I have arranged to swap my Vamp kit for Sarah’s Bombshell kit so I will have to wait a few days longer to test it out. But what a fab item to include in a Glossy Box. My Mac eyebrow pencil is on it’s last legs so I am beyond thrilled to get this kit, thank-you Glossy Box! The HD kit does put this months other offerings in the shade but in my opinion this product alone justifies the £12.95 cost of the box.  A £5 online discount for http://www.hd-brows.co.uk is also supplied.

MOA – The Green Balm

Dinky pot. I tried this instantly on my lips… you can never have too many balms especially in this season of biting winds and drying central heating. 100% natural with an un-intrusive fragrance and taste, what’s not to love? You also get a 20% off discount code.

Neal and wolf – HARMONY Intensive Care Treatment

Just to echo my August Glossy Box Review ‘200ml, 200ml! Who says size doesn’t matter. Is it wrong that I’m already impressed with this product, because it’s big?’. Exotic and expensive smelling I am excited to give this a whirl. This is most excellent timing Glossy Box as my much loved Sachajuan Conditioner from the August Boudoir Prive Box is nearly all gone! 15% discount for Glossy Box subscribers.

Plum by Mary Greenwell – Eau de Parfum

1.5 ml sample bottle. As I have fallen in love with the scent, which I would never have otherwise tried, I can’t complain. I agree with the sleeve that it is indeed ‘intoxicating loveliness’. If anybody out there is not delighted with their samples of PLUM please feel free to donate them to me 😉 20% discount for Glossy Box Subscribers.

So first impressions of my September Glossy Box are hugely positive. I am genuinely not feeling any product envy for the alternative products others may have received partly because I haven’t checked out the other blogs yet and also because I am confident I will use ALL the products in this month’s box. Thank-you Glossy Box.

My only grumble is that if the beauty profiles were in use that we wouldn’t have to make our own arrangements to swap our HD Kits on Beauty Box Swaps because we would have received the one most suited to our colouring at the outset.

I currently pay for my own monthly subscription beauty boxes including Glossy Box. I am aware Glossy Box gifted selected bloggers with free boxes this month, however for some reason they overlooked offering one to me 😉

Welcome to the Crazy World of Lucy Brown

I am Lucy Brown. I will be embarking on some new adventures over the next few weeks and months. These adventures include taking on the role of Vera, a very dim, likeable, down to earth Liverpudlian 35-45 year old, in the PADOS (Prestwich Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society) production of Willy Russell’s Breezeblock Park, trying out as a Benefit Beauty Consultant and hopefully getting signed to Industry Casting agency for paid work as an Extra.

I am happily married to a wonderful man we have two children together and three cats.  Sadly my oldest cat Turtle has recently lost her sight due to high blood pressure but she is otherwise in good health for a cat of her age.

I am also supposed to be concentrating on working towards self-employment as a Doula, Baby Massage Instructor and Parenting Coach although recent experiences have knocked my confidence and drive in these areas and I feel more drawn to the exciting new adventures mentioned above at this time.
