Boss Insight: Why many of our team are living vegan and vegetarian lifestyles.

Vegetarian week has inspired us to dig deep and find out why so many of Team Boss have made the ultimate decision to ditch their old ways and become a part of the vegan and vegetarian community. We have documented some individual journeys for you – and of course yummy recipes too.  Scrumptious! 
 
Alex Walker – Boss Model and vegan champion
I chose to go vegan around 6 years ago now, I wanted to eat healthier organic food and decided that a vegan diet was a good fit not just for me but, for the animals and the environment too.  Since I have spoken at events around the country about my journey and have lead food demonstrations and workshops, I have just returned from working as a chef in Mallorca for 2 yoga retreats and now I am back in Manchester I aim to do food markets and some more workshops over the summer.
 
My go to recipe is my sweet potato, spinach and chickpea curry with sprouted brown rice and smashed avocado on organic corn cakes with a tomato salsa that I make from scratch too!

Tristan Gage – Booking Assistant
 I try to avoid meat a lot because whilst I don’t necessarily have a problem with humans eating animals, I have a problem with farming them and the industries that take away their rights and treat them horrifically. As well as this, I don’t think that humans need anywhere near as much meat as is typically consumed, and when I spent a month last year without eating meat, I felt fresher in myself compared to when I ate meat a lot.
It’s baby steps for me! I’m progressing towards as much of a meat free diet as possible.
As for a favourite recipe, anything chickpea related is a winner for me – full of protein and flavour, fab in curries or salads or made into falafel!

Ksenija Selivanova – Food Stylist and Model
I absolutely love to make vegan and vegetarian treats. For me it’s all about not supporting the meat and dairy industry. It’s cruel and unnecessary. I do not think that everyone has to turn vegan , but  I just wish people would do their research and source their produce locally and ethically. Buy organic, free range and you will already make a big difference. Also vegan and vegetarian food can be very tasty and SO good for you ❤️
 
Some of my most popular recipes include my cruelty free cheesecakes which are super tasty here are both of my recipes for you to try for yourselves!

Thalia Heffernan – Model

When did you decide to become a vegan and why?

I started as a vegetarian, learning more about the meat, poultry, dairy, fish and egg industry prompted the ease I found in changing my diet to adhere to my belief in what these industries were doing was wrong. This spurred my change from vegetarian to vegan. I think that small steps are key in transitioning between any diet change, especially if you want it to become a lifestyle.

Do you miss any of the food you have cut out of your diet?

For sure, it can be challenging at the start especially when you realise just how many foods that you’re used to eating contain animal products but, once you open your mind and discover alternatives it makes life a lot easier. It always comes down to mind over matter. Veganism is on the rise, and with that comes more restaurants offering alternatives. Supermarkets are also bringing out replacements to what you would have always assumed you could never live without, and that for me is incredibly exciting.

Is it easy to still create yummy recipes whilst being a vegan?

Definitely! I love nothing more than cooking up a feast for my family or friends and enjoy shocking them all when they find out it’s entirely plant based! Linda McCartney does an amazing range of vegan friendly sausages and sausage rolls that rival their meaty counterparts. Brands like Tesco and Lidl have a range of dairy free ice creams, as does Ben and Jerry’s which I’ll always have a stash of in my freezer.

Is day to day snacking difficult?

Thanks to big brands noticing the growing demand for more vegan friendly options it’s easier now than ever. Tesco have just launched their own entirely vegan range of ready meals, wraps and sandwiches called ‘Wicked Kitchen’ which has been hugely successful and sold out in certain stores upon it’s arrival. When in the need for something quick, easy and healthy in any store, my main tips is to quickly proof read the ingredients list as they still don’t always state if certain products are entirely vegan friendly. M&S have brought out a range of vegan friendly meals, as have Supervalue and many others. For more on the go snacks, things that may surprise some people are Pringles, certain doughnuts (check the labels first), bagels, certain crackers (including Jacobs cream crackers), Cliff energy bars, Oreos, falafels, hummus, Jelly Tots! There are so many foods out there that many already consume that are ‘accidentally’ vegan friendly making changing your diet to plant based much easier.

Is a balanced diet a struggle as a vegan?

I was brought up being told drinking milk and eating meat was the only way I’d grow big and strong therefore, this change went against everything I’ve ever known. But, when I saw the bigger picture and made the choice to cut these things out of my diet I never felt like it impacted me negatively. It’s always recommended to consult a physician before changing your diet and that is important across the spectrum but, I’ve been lucky that so far I’ve had no problems and needed no supplements to gain the nutrients that I for so long I believed I needed to obtain from meat and animal products. The American Dietetic Association and the British Dietetic Association both state that appropriately planned total vegetarian and vegan diets are healthful nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention of certain diseases.

Has your change in diet had any influence on your appearance/beauty regime?

It can, I modelled for years as an omnivore, and have found that despite eating more food now on a plant based diet, I do have to pay less attention to levels of fat and cholesterol in what I consume. I think looking after yourself is a conscious decision that people make themselves, I train and diet to suit my modelling career and to be as healthy as possible. That hasn’t changed, all that differs now is that I’ve eliminated certain foods and adopted new ones in their place! I have had many people say that the quality of my skin, hair and nails has improved massively.

Do others enjoy the recipes you cook for them?

Absolutely. I’ve cooked for some of my most speculative friends and family and so far I don’t think I’ve disappointed, well not that they’ve told me anyway! It’s about subbing what you’re used to having as a main component of your meal, say meat, with something nutritionally dense and filling, say lentils, beans, pulses, legumes. It hasn’t failed me yet.

Do you think others are more understanding now when it comes to a plant based diet?

I think with the rise in conversation and education about what we’re eating and what’s happening in order for us to do that, attitudes and stereotypes are evolving. Plant based diets are absolutely obtainable and they’re becoming more and more so. I think a lot of people are questioning themselves and what they’re eating and I think that despite what they do with those questions it’s healthy for them to be asked. I’m not expecting the world to go plant based, but I do hope that people take responsibility in what they are doing when they consume certain products.

Would you say the idea of being a vegan is now more popular in society?

Social media, television and news are updating people constantly, all of these platforms are contributing to the conversation. I turned a blind eye to it for so long, and eventually I couldn’t do it anymore. I’m so thankful for the above for giving me and so many others the easy access to real information about what we’re doing to the planet, ourselves and animals.

Introducing Gemma Victoria: Boss Creatives Fashion Stylist.

How have you got to where you are in your career right now?

Working hard and learning from others. I like to know about what everyones job entails, not just mine. If a photographer doesn’t mind I will sit and watch how they process images or light a set. The more you watch the more you learn. I’m not afraid to get stuck in.

 What’s inspiring you at the moment? 
 
I hate to admit it but I do like a good trawl through Instagram – it is SUCH a big influence on everyone and everything whether we like it or not, so it’s a great way to keep in touch with what’s going on in different cities across the world.  I am a massive people watcher and could sit for hours just looking at what people are wearing or how they are wearing it. We live near two big secondary schools so seeing how the students are wearing their jumpers or their bags is basically where trends start. Looking around the high street shops and seeing what people gravitate towards all filters though to how I may put an outfit together or a mood board for a shoot.
Screen-Shot-2015-03-27-at-09.47.25_2_670 
Hobbies and interests?
 
I love going to vintage markets and makers markets. There are so many different talented people up North and I love to support smaller businesses where and when I can. I need to find some good car boot sales. A good hour long workout is my therapy, so I try to do that at least once or twice a week to clear my head and help me focus.  When I can I love to go and watch live music. Liverpool and Manchester are full of amazing local bands so I am happy standing in a grotty pub and listening to someone new. Gigs are also amazing places to get inspiration!
WCM_UrbanOutfitters_Spring14_Email_WhiteNoise_StreetWear_2W4A4225_670
 

Goals and aspirations? 

I love being busy and these days it’s working with a group of people to produce images to a brief that gives me a buzz. I like working with clients to deliver what they and their customers want to see, and the teams up North are always so friendly and fun to work with it makes the days whizz by! I would love to style some campaign shoots again, the thrill of working in a team to build a look and feel for a specific brand or customer is a challenge I love. I would also love to style again for the music industry, working with different personalities and developing a persona is really fun.

 

What advice would you give to anyone else wanting to pursue a career in styling?

Do every job that is offered to you, the good, the bad and the ugly. You won’t know what skills and knowledge you may have picked up until you need to use them a few years down the line. Get involved with projects with like minded people, find photographers to shoot with and discuss your ideas. Styling is about experiences, ideas that go wrong as well as the ones that go right so don’t be afraid to make mistakes as its how you learn and develop.

Remembering the victims of the Manchester Arena attack

We remember those who died a year ago today in Manchester, and their friends and loved ones. We recognise and thank the emergency services for their swift and caring work and ongoing investigations. We acknowledge and unite in the Spirit of Manchester, which will never be broken. We love this poem from Tony Walsh whose words perfectly convey our thoughts.

THIS IS THE PLACE by Tony Walsh

This is the place in the North West of England

It’s ace, it’s the best and the songs that we sing

From the stands, from our bands set the whole planet shaking

Our inventions are legends! There’s nowt we can’t make and

So we make brilliant music. We make brilliant bands

We make goals that make souls leap from seats in the stands

And we make things from steel and we make things from cotton

And we make people laugh, take the mick summat rotten

And we make you at home and we make you feel welcome

And we make summat happen, we can’t seem to help it

And if you’re looking for history then yes, we’ve a wealth

But the Manchester way is to make it yourself

And make us a record, a new number one

And make us a brew while you’re up, love. Go on!

And make us feel proud that you’re winning the league

And make us sing louder and make us believe it

that this is the place that has helped shape the world

And that this the place where a Manchester girl

Name of Emmeline Pankhurst from the streets of Moss Side

Led a Suffragette City with sisterhood pride

And this is the place with appliance of science

We’re on it, atomic, we strut with defiance

In the face of a challenge we always stand tall

Mancunians in union delivered it all

Such as housing and libraries, and health, education

And unions and co-ops, the first railway station

So we’re sorry! Bear with us! We invented commuters!

But we hope you forgive us – we invented computers!

And this is the place Henry Royce strolled with Rolls

And we’ve rocked and we’ve rolled with our own Northern Soul

And so this is the place to do business, then dance

Where go-getters and goal setters know they’ve a chance

And this is the place where we first played as kids

And me Mam lived and died here, she loved it she did

And this is the place where our folks came to work

Where they struggled in puddles, they hurt in the dirt

And they built us a city. They built us these towns

And they coughed on the cobbles to the deafening sound

Of the steaming machines and the screaming of slaves

They were scheming for greatness, they dreamed to their graves

And they left us a spirit, they left us a vibe

The Mancunian Way to survive and to thrive

And to work and to build, to connect and create and

Greater Manchester’s greatness is keeping it great

And so this is the place now we’ve kids of our own

Some are born here, some drawn here but we all call it home

And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat

All the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets

Because this is a place that has been through some hard times

Oppressions, recessions, depressions and dark times

But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit

Northern grit, northern wit in Greater Manchester’s lyrics

And there’s hard times again in these streets of our city

But we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity

Because this a place where we stand strong together

With a smile on our face, Mancunians Forever

And we’ve got Forever Manchester as the place where a team with a dream

Can get funding and something to help with their scheme

Because this is the place that understands your grand plans

We don’t do No Can Do, we just stress Yes We Can!

Forever Manchester’s a charity for people round ‘ere

You can fundraise, donate. You can be a volunteer

You can live local, give local. We can honestly say

We do charity differently, that Mancunian Way

And we fund local kids, and we fund local teams

We support local dreamers to work for their dreams

We support local groups and the great work they do

So can you …help us help… local people like you?

Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes

Because this is the place that’s a part of our bones

‘Cos Greater Manchester gives us such strength from the fact

That this is the place. We should give something back.

Always remember. Never forget.  Forever Manchester.

 

With much love to our friends and neighbours from all of us at Boss Model Management, Boss Casting, Boss Model Juniors and Boss Creatives.

Boss for Barnabus: Dragon Boat Race 2018

On Sunday, Team Boss conquered Salford’s Dragon Boat Race in order to raise money for the Manchester based homeless charity Barnabus and we had the best time! The sun was shining and team spirit was in the air, the team rowed their hearts out and managed to come in 2nd place – we are so proud of you all and very thankful for all of those who donated and came to support us on the day.  If you’re in a living, giving kind of mood and as amazed as we are you can still donate which will make our efforts all the more worthwhile!  Every penny counts.  Please log on to our Just Giving page here.

Dragon 1

“I attended the Dragon Boat Race in order to give everyone a bit of moral support and to cheer them on whilst they were racing. I only managed to see the second and third race but they were very good and were way ahead of the others and won all 3 of their heats.  Typical Boss! The atmosphere was great, the beers were flowing and the sun being out made it all the better! 

 After the third race and with only 3 more heats to go the team were under the impression that only the top 3 boats went into the final so everyone was feeling a bit deflated after working so hard and headed to the bar. Luckily, they were told that it was actually 4 boats in the final so they had sneaked in. Hoorah! By this point everyone was tired but remained determined. 

 After the news, the team were in 4th place in the rankings, and as they set off I could see that they weren’t as quick as everyone else, but once they moved into 3rd place about half way through, it was like this massive rush of adrenaline just hit everyone and as a spectator you could see the gap closing in!  It was so exciting! Me, my daughter and our supporters were screaming our heads off on the side line and they just absolutely smashed it and managed to push into 2nd place and beat their best time by a massive 6 seconds! It was awesome and we were all really proud of them.  It was a great day and I definitely looking forward to watching again next year.” – Sarah Lewis

Introducing Stephanie Swain: New Boss Creatives MUA & Hair Stylist.

When did your interest in make up and hair styling begin? 

Around the age of 14 when I was in high school on my lunch breaks I would apply make up on my friends, my mum also owns a hair salon and I spent a lot of time there when I was a teen, when looking for courses most professionals advised me to try and specialise in both hair and make up so picking up tips and tricks from my mum at such a young age really worked in my favour.

Is there anything inspiring you and contributing to your creativity right now? 

Social media is a big influence it allows you to witness other talented MUA’s and hair stylists develop their craft which is incredibly inspiring. Personally I often turn to painting and art projects which helps inspire themes and colour schemes. My imagination can be stirred simply by a models face or by the clothing rack at a photo shoot therefore my ideas are always evolving.

IMG-20180517-WA0008

Do you have a signature look that you like to create? 

My signature look is ‘minimal make up’ for this I use as little make up on the skin as possible and highlighter to ensure the cheekbones and overall structure of the face is enhanced. I also love a fluffy brow and always decide on an eye shadow shade depending on what makes the clients natural eye colour pop! This style is great because it intensifies natural features without leaving the client or model feeling ‘caked’.

 

In your career so far has there been any prominent moments of achievement? 

My first magazine cover for House of Coco, going into a store and seeing the cover in print was exciting! Currently becoming represented by Boss is a great feeling and I am very enthusiastic about the future.

DSC_0620 copy

How does your personal everyday make up routine differ to the looks you produce for work? 

My career requires very early mornings so my main goal on a day to day basis is honestly just to make myself look more alive! Although, practice makes perfect so whenever I have time to try out new techniques for work on myself I do.

 

What are your main aims and goals in regards to career? 

I would love to combine my career with my passion for travelling, I am always eager to visit places I have never been to before even if it is areas I haven’t conquered yet in the UK! Building up more mainstream magazine credits would also be amazing but overall I aspire to create work that inspires others.

DSC_2716crop

Do you have any go to products that we should know about? 

I always use cruelty free products it’s something I am extremely passionate about. For skin care I tend to use Arbonne products, Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are amazing and there are plenty of shades to choose from. The main question clients and followers always ask me is what highlighter I use it’s by Illimasqua and it’s a must do to create a flawless finish.

Toni: Me, Myself and Modelling

Modelling Career

Have you always wanted to be a model? 

Honestly, I’d never really thought of modelling when I was younger. It was actually my Dad who rang Boss on my behalf and it all started from there.

How long has it been since you joined Boss? 

That was a while ago but as I was at school I had to finish my studies so I’m still quite a new face!

Toni campaign shot

How have you found your Boss experience so far? 

Amazing, it’s like a family – the team are all great. Modelling has also helped me overcome insecurities. In school I would straighten my hair everyday and wear make up but now I have learnt to embrace my natural look,  I now leave my hair curly and never wear make up. It’s all about embracing who you are and being comfortable in your own skin.

In your modelling career are there any jobs that stand out for you in particular? 

I was chosen for the Burberry campaign, when I found out the news I was laughing and crying simultaneously I couldn’t wait to tell my parents.  I rang them and they always answer the phone but this time typically they didn’t! I was bouncing around bursting to tell someone the news. In the end I managed to get in touch with both of my parents and they were so excited when they found out. The campaign was shot in Edinburgh with Alasdair Mclellan.  I have also recently worked with Vogue Ukraine and Spanish Vogue, I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my experiences! 

Toni Bagley 029

 How did it feel seeing yourself on advertisements? 

Well, when it first came out I went to the Burberry store here in Manchester and one of the customers actually asked for my autograph!

Toni Burberry logo

Getting to know Toni Bagley

Are you a family person? 

Family is massively important to me. I am one of five sisters so my house can get a bit crazy. I’m currently in London but I come back home to the farm any weekends I can to see my parents and sisters, contact over the phone just isn’t enough for me. Although, being in London on my own for the majority of the time has really helped me find my independence.

What do you like to do in your spare time? 

I train my heart out and do a lot of exercise. I also love horses, my parents live on a farm close to the peak district and I started riding in 2008. After 3 months I qualified for Scope Festival where I won the under 10’s championship and was in the newspapers. A few months later I was picked to be on the England team! With prioritising my modelling career I still continue to ride horses but don’t have as much time to compete due to my busy schedule but, it is still in my heart.  I love it!

28152307_1733971193331680_6177951713857634304_n

Any goals and aspirations for this year? 

I would like to sign a couple more autographs,  ha ha! Only joking. I want to really come in to my own and be at my peak. I’ve had a really positive journey so far and I’m just looking forward to continuing that. I’m going to New York soon to meet with my Agency over there, it will be amazing to meet new clients and build up my work there, this industry is incredible and I’m ready for it.

Any other travel plans for the Summer apart from New York?

Not yet however, I visited the Maldives with my family when I was younger and it’s my dream to go back.

Would you give any advice to anyone else wanting to pursue a career in modelling?

Just don’t take any opportunity for granted. Take every opportunity you can and do your best!  You’ll need a good agent so do your homework and research, and don’t believe everything you hear – ask for proof.

Boss & The BAFTA’s

Boss Casting hold outstanding relationships with a plethora of productions across the UK and provide talented supporting artists, walk ons and actors for well known television shows. We were thrilled to see so many of the productions we work with represented at the BAFTA Television Awards last weekend.

Casualty won best soap and continuing drama, and we were excited to see three of the soaps we work alongside nominated.

Coronation Street – nominated for soap and continuing drama

Coronation Street continues to be one of our regular and best loved bookings on a weekly basis. We love the soaps!  We have had some really exciting walk ons recently including central character Luke’s Mum and Dad.

Emmerdale  – nominated for soap and continuing drama

We have a lot of regular bookings from Emmerdale so much so that many of our supporting artists will be included in upcoming secret storylines. So make sure to keep watching to see what plot twists and turns will occur whilst spotting some familiar team Boss faces! Most recently in the Yorkshire Dales based soap you will see our artists playing press photographers, young offenders and solicitors.

 

Hollyoaks – nominated for soap and continuing drama

Our walk ons and supporting artists have been included in many challenging story lines including the recent episodes that tackled the homeless issue as well as the central character Steven’s murder trial. Recognisable regular faces on the soap include Peter Cadman and Mikie Bucknor who play builders and David Leung who is the desk sergeant at Dee Valley police station.

Peter Kay’s Car Share – Nominated for leading actress

We supplied hundreds of supporting artists on this programme! Some of the memorable scenes included a lady being painted blue and dressed as a Smurf, and people driving stunt cars whilst Peter Kay ran across the top of them!  We also had a variety of walk on artists, the most notable being the two Ted characters pushing the shopping trolleys – fantastic!

Little Boy Blue – Winner of best supporting actor and nominated for leading actress

As this was based on the tragic true story of how eleven year old Rhys Jones lost his life in 2007 it was still vivid in people’s memories and lots of our artists were keen to work on it.  In particular, we supplied many ex police men and women who had first-hand experience of similar events that happened in this story.  It was as if our people wanted to show their support.

Peaky Blinders – Winner of best drama series

Its fantastic to be a part of this production – it’s extremely popular and deservedly so. Lots of the scenes were filmed right here where we are in the Northern Quarter which made it exciting as there was such a buzz in the public surrounding it.  We had a steady supply of supporting artists each week on this, one great scene in particular was the boxing ring showdown.  If you keep your eyes peeled there are a whole horde of Boss artists involved in the crowd!

 

f60be7235900a8458be50fcdec707aa5

 

Boss Casting are delighted to be a part of the production process for so many outstanding television programmes.  Our talented performers help us maintain strong relationships with all of the productions we liaise with. We look forward to seeing what upcoming productions will be represented in next years award ceremony. Congratulations to all the nominees – we are so proud of you.
