London Street Fashion
So I was in a rush for work as usual I was late, the weather was scorching hot. I then see a London street style photographer I see now and again around Carnaby St who works with Asos style magazine, David Nyanzi he is a cool photographer who snaps some of London’s most outrageous and stylish people. I remember the first time he approached me and he took a cool picture of me a while ago I was running late for work that time too. I love this picture better as the last picture I was sweating like a pig HA! I,ve always got time to stop for a picture HAYYYYYY!!!! Anyways! Check out his website if he stops you give him the time because he is a cool chicken! HERE!!! J

Ok so this is my 1st time updating my blog since my episode of Beauty and the beast aired. I,ve had some amazing messages and comments from all of you and I just really want to say a big thank you to all of you that enjoyed it. If you want to watch the episode again if you missed if you can watch it.
So last week I met the amazing Nicola Thornton & Jade from Illamasqua PR at The Sanctum Soho Hotel in Soho. We chatted and dined over so juicy mojito cocktails. I done an interview for the Illamasqua website in the social area you can check it out HERE. Anyways I received some products from Illamasqua which was amazing. I have done a video reviewing each of the products they sent me they are all amazing and their Skin Base foundation is my new foundation. My look in this video is done using all Illamasqua products I will post some more pictures of this look down below hope you like!!!!!
Sorry the video quality is a bit of a let down. My amazing Canon camcorder doesn’t love my Mac so I have to download some crap converter that makes these MOD files Mac friendly.
Ok so most of my messages the most asked question was what facial scrub I use or facial wash etc Well I use LA PRAIRIE Foam Cleanser. Its amazing you just sqeeze a little dab onto your hand and use a little warm water and it glides onto your face and washes off like a dream. You can get it from Selfridges or Harrods its about £49 it’s a tad expensive but I got mine from the airport =)

Beauty and the Beast
I can’t believe the time is here. The show is officially coming out, I thought I would write this blog before it came out really because I have been major worried just on peoples views about my episode and the show in general. People get so worked up just on the title “beauty and the beast” the title itself doesn’t mean what people think it does both terms “beauty & “beast” come into the show because the person who is addicted to beauty can be considered the beast because of how they act or see other people or themselves and the person with the facial disfigurement can been seen as the real beauty for being so strong and beautiful inside and the outside.
I am major excited for the show to have a release date as so much people were asking me when the show was coming out. The show was originally supposed to come out late August but they moved it forward which was a huge surprise. My episode was originally supposed to be 2nd but now they’ve moved it 1st which is a major shock! I just want people to see the episode and enjoy it and I am major embarrassed and a little cringe worth about certain things I say in the episode because when you have a camera in your face for 15 hours each day you will say something you regret or something just so the day can end faster. The thing with all these dramas and TV documentaries they want drama and juice they want some “spice” I admit they wanted me to a little bit more extra than I was but I couldn’t do that because it wasn’t who I am. Meeting Reggie did change my life he is such a sweet person. Reggie may have a facial disfigurement and may look different to certain people but to me he is just like anyone else. Me and Reggie hit it off the next couple of days of getting to know each other and secretly we both knew the TV company wanted us to not argue with each other but to just not be friends, not have any agreement and just have different views. But that didn’t work did it J
The other thing! Heat magazine printed this WHACK!!!! Piece of shit they must not have watched the episode BASICALLY! The show is about me wanting to enhance my features and they asked me “Gary if you could look like a celebrity who would you look like?” I said “Well I wouldn’t want to look like anyone but I would take little parts from celebs I love I said “Kim Kardashians Cheekbones” & “Naomi Campbell’s Nose” but they failed to mention that bit so HEAT magazine are claiming I’m trying to look like KIM KARDASHIAN…. ERM ARE YOU DUMB? HOW THE FUCK COULD I LOOK LIKE KIM KARDASHIAN. That’s just plain silly.. its like trying to turn a melon into a Range Rover you cant do that shit unless your doing WITCHCRAFT LOL! So I just want to clear I aint trying to have surgery to try and be some tranny failure Kim Kardashian because that made me so angry I told the director to get that point straight how silly of him.
Channel 4 have released an official clip for the episode check it out HERE!
Anyways guys I want you all to enjoy the show its coming on Tuesday 10th July, Channel 4 8pm and then repeated on Channel 4 +1 at 9pm.
