So, this is it…

… It’s the final countdown. My final week and as my time at The Lion King comes to an end I just wanted to reflect on my past 3 years working with this amazing company and broadcast some of my favourite moments that I and others have made.

Training as a Make Up Artist when I was 19, I would have dreamt about landing a job on one of the West End’s biggest shows and then my dream became reality! Over the course of the past 3 years, the dream and appreciation of my job stayed put deep down

inside me and Lion King became my home and my family. I’ve made so many amazing and beautiful friends and it also opened up a lot of opportunities for me as a Make Up Artist.

Had an awesome few days in Germany for a Disney Promo
I got to meet THE Kermit!
West End Live!
The Olivier Awards was a blast!

There have been ups and downs as any adventure, opportunity and experience have and from this I have learnt so much and have also come to realise how many gems I have in my life and how there will always be a place in my heart for them!

My partner in (make up) crime – Gabby & I at this years cast change party.
Us Lion King Girls representing at the West End Sports Day this summer!
The Three Musketeers!
A day of piercings, alcohol and Jay Z spent with this gem, Milla!
My beloved Brazilian and the most gentle person I know – Chico!
Two of the most supportive people

It’s hard to forget all of the parties that have been held over the years….

Lion King Christmas Party – Masquerade!
Miss Darcel’s long awaited hen party!
Another cast change party at Cafe De Paris
My South African brother!
Another two gems (literally!) – Natalie & Sapphire
My forever treasured girl – Jojo.

Not to mention the amount of fancy dress parties and the lengths that people went too for their costumes!

Getting gory for halloween
CARNIVAL!
Tiago’s spectacular superhero party!
Getting my genie on with my minions…
… voila!
Storm & Black Widow take on the world! ;)

These are just a few photographs of my moments, madness & memories – how much I’m going to miss it, I can’t even explain! This craziness has been my everyday life and I wouldn’t have changed any of it for the world BUT it’s time for me to start a new adventure so lets make this last week the best one of them all. Thank you to each and every single one of you for your passion, humour, friendship, support and just for each and every good time that I’ve shared with you :-) I love you all beyond belief and wish everyone the best!
