Prompt Me 4: Barefaced.

This week’s prompt was a beautiful quote from Gabourey Sidibe. Iy inspired me to film a video with no makeup, which as you will tell from watching the video I found a fairly difficult experience. Go check out Elloa’s beautiful contribution at


Prompt Me 3: Thriving

So today is the day when our new Prompt Me videos go live. Between me starting a new job, and Christmas, this has taken a little longer than it usually would. I actually recorded this video on 15.12.2013. I was going to re-record it today but when I watched it I felt that the vulnerability and nerves and unguarded honesty is what makes Prompt Me good, so I figured I would stick with it. This video is basically a tribute to the gorgeous people who have supported me, but it is too short to really thank everyone.
