Morning all my name is Lady Jane ( Janie B), I am a curvy 51 year old lady living in Lancashire.

I love to write, model, sing in my band Skyeladder ( and take photographs.

My areas of particular interest are writing reviews for fashion, food, bands/music, health, travel and photography ( I have a Nikon D70) and love to take pictures of great artists, fashion, models and also travel and nature/animals).

In my time I have modelled for many fashion designers both catwalk and print and I have appeared on TV.

I’ve also been looking enough to have photos I have taken and articles I have written published numerous times ( via fashion magazines Evolve, Slink , Fireworks magazine, Jon Rob Publications and other music magazines) .

I also have my own shop on this blog where I sell my bands merchandise but also my photography prints and I’ve started making jewellery, fashion items so please go and visit and purchase some of my items.

I am happy to review products and can be contacted on if that’s something you would like me to do.  However I must stress that all opinions are my own on this blog.

Thankyou and have a read of my bio to see my achievements.

In my time I have modelled for many fashion designers both catwalk and print. I have , appeared on TV and have had photos I have taken and  and articles I have written published numerous times ( via fashion magazines Evolve, Slink , Fireworks magazine, Jon Rob Publications and other music magazines) .


I initially modelled when I was in my teens under my maiden name
Jane Almond just for a few local plus sized shops wanting to promote
their clothes.

I also was entered for a modelling competition a number and came second
in my age range for a competition with Womens Own and Marshall Ward where I won£500.00 to spend in the catalogue and also got introduced to PHA extras Agency in Manchester and ended up being a TV extra in things like Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Shameless, Holly Oaks, DFS ads and many more.

In March 2011 I was asked to model for an Evans University Focus
Group focusing on size perception and the retailer themselves ( ie how
things could be improved) which was very interesting.

That sort of led to me entering the Face of Rossendale competition 2011
and I was amazed to find myself one of the ten finalists.

I also did the catwalk for Evans and Butterfly at Liverpool Fashion Week.

April 2012 I modeled for a new online retailer called Style Personified.
