I landed a job with fellow model Cara Brett to work at the Mardi Gras festival in New Orleans Mississippi ! WOW.
I was extremely excited and headed to London the night before for the weekly party at Crystal. As always we drank far too much vodka and I saw a lot of my model friends including Louise Glover who looked gorgeous in her sexy satin number. I also bumped into fellow playmate Elle who was feeling under the weather but still looked stunning! Cara and I had a good boogie and headed to bed for about 4am as we had to be out for 8 to catch our flight!
Before we knew it we were on our way to Heathrow to get our 10 hour flight to Atlanta! Us being pigs and being slightly (cough) hungover bought the biggest bag of sugary sweets and crisps to eat on the plane and had a full English fry up before we boarded,nothing like a good model diet.
We chatted the whole way and landed in Atlanta shattered only to be given a 2hr delay on our connecting flight to New Orleans BOOOOOOOOO.
We eventually landed got picked up - had a outfit fitting and went to bed! only for us both to wake at 6am wide awake ( how annoying ) but that jet lagg for you. We went for a typical American breakfast of pancakes bacon and grits- don't ask.
The next few days we filmed a TV commercial for CULT energy drink and worked at the festival. We got extremely well looked after with a hummer limousine ferrying us around everywhere and bodyguards! We had all outfits custom made with little red wigs - it looked hot. I even met Kid rock he was a nice guy. The last night we got treated to a steak at Mortons. It was by far the best steak I've ever eaten.
I worked and partied hard and before we knew it were on our way back!
What a fantastic experience Mardi Gras 2009 was.
