Early morning(ish) and it's the first photo shoot of the day for XO magazine. I look totally shattered because I went out last night. . . like an idiot.

Dressing Up

Rocking some blue eye shadow and a yellow dress, which I would never really do. I feel like I'm playing dress-up in my mum's wardrobe, but I kind of like it.

Manage This

In the car, on the phone to my manager, wearing my Riff Raff sunglasses. Probably either moaning or panicking about something.

Hyperactive

At the second shoot of the day for Ladygunn magazine. Everyone's feeling super hectic because I'm late. I'm feeling super crazy because I just drank my third coffee (ever, in my life) and I'm bouncing off the walls like I've just been in a rave.

Near Miss

Shooting on the rocks with Gorilla vs. Bear. I nearly fall in the water because I feel super tired now and am tripping out on lack of sleep, but it's making me feel dreamy so I quite like it.

Practicing New Stuff

Practicing some new songs for the show tonight. I've been on a support tour with Ellie Goulding and then with Marina and the Diamonds since April, so I have not had time to practice my full set yet. Here's us running a new song, "Black Roses."

Toyko at Night

Finally made it onstage. I bought this neon strip microphone stand, which I absolutely love. When I come back and tour in the USA in September, I want to have a neon lead as well. I want to make the stage look like Tokyo at night; that's the aim. But super raw.
