So I got the chance to meet Liam Payne today!! And let me tell you: that !! shit !! was !! good !!
So basically what happened was we got there around 3, and they weren’t letting people in until about 3:30-3:40. We waited, talked to some cool people, then eventually there was check in. We got all settled in then about 10 minutes later they gave everyone their lanyards and let us into the room. There weren’t seats or anything, just a stage with a couch then an open floor where we could sit (my sister and I got to sit in the third row! And it was extremelyyyyyy close). Anyways, once everyone got into the room one of the radio hosts started asking questions to fans, like asking who was the biggest Liam fan. That went on for a bit before the radio host (Adam Bomb) came in and introduced Liam and LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. THAT MAN LOOKED GOOD AS HELL. As you see in the pic above (I’m in the blue btw!), he was wearing a red sweater and he looked so clean and fresh and just so GOOD. He did an interview, talked about Bear and how Cheryl is use to him being gone and how she said that she could do it on her own (in a good way!!). He answered some questions from the fans that had been sent in and for the life of me I can’t remember any of them except this one girl who asked if he likes unicorns??
Anyways, after the whole little interview (which included so many cute moments but I can’t think of them right now because I’m still in shock so maybe if I remember I’ll do another post) he played us his song and out of respect for him and the station, I’m not gonna give any spoilers on it. All I’m going to say is that it’s so much better than what you’re expecting. It’s such a bop and people are gonna love it!!
After that, they had everyone line up and my sister and I were first in line to meet him, but we didn’t want to be first so we went to the back and as we did that, Liam walked by me and looked me dead in the eye and I shit myself it was MAGICAL. We waited in line for about 10 minutes maybe? Probably less bc it went by so quick, but we finally got to the front of the line.
We walked up to him and my sister was first to meet him. She hugged him and he hugged her back (not one of those side hugs, a full blown hug!!) and then basically I did the same thing (also a full blown hug!!) I hugged him as tight as I could in the moment and actually tried so hard to cherish it. As we went to take the picture, he pulled me closer and I sorta fell into him a little bit. After the picture, he was like “I thought I’d go for a different hello there” bc he said it in a really weird way but it was so cute and funny!! After that, we hugged him again (more full blown hugs!!!) and when I hugged him, our cheeks were pressed together and he is sO SOFT GUYS. He smelt sooooooo fucking good. The last thing I said to him was “bye thank you!” And I can’t remember if he said anything back cause it’s sorta a blur :-(
Anyways, we walked away and once outside my sister broke down into sobs because she loves him so much and I was so happy for her omfg.
Basically it was the best day ever and I wish I could go back. I miss him so much and I really don’t wanna go back to reality, but this is definitely something I’m going to remember and cherish the rest of my life!!! :-)
And please ignore the fact that I look awful!! I was just really happy AHHHHH :-)
your career as a model has really took off. you have received so many job offers after walking the Yves Saint Laurent show in paris at fashion week. since then fashion labels like marc jacobs, gucci, dolce & gabbana, prada, miu miu and more have contacted your manager and magazines like vogue, love and harpers bazaar have had you in for shoots and interviews. life was looking insane for you and today was another day to add to the list.
you were so surprised to receive a call from your manager telling you that calvin klein, yes calvin klein the fashion label would like to have you in for a shoot. you were beyond ecstatic. you have always love calvin klein and their elegant products as well as funky and old style campaigns. starting as a model you have always aimed to shoot for calvin klein. you were just screaming on the inside.
this whole month you have been full of energy and dancing around every chance you get. your mind couldn’t get off the fact that you would be doing a calvin klein shoot so soon. everyone that you were able to tell have been so glad and happy for you.
as the day came you woke up extra early due to your excitement. all morning you were unable to stop moving. you ate breakfast, had a shower and got ready for one of the most exciting opportunities you have received. you let your hair fall into loose curls and applied some light makeup to give the illusion that you are more awake then you actually were. you spritz some vanilla perfume on and threw your camel coat on and left the house.
arriving at the location you were just so excited. you entered the building and told the receptionist that you were here shooting for calvin klein, she gave you all the information you needed and you quickly arrived to the location.
standing infront of you when you entered was a middle aged lady with a clipboard in her hands and a pen in her mouth. she removed the pen and smiled at you. ‘you must be y/n, oh my you are prettier in real life’ she greeted you. you smiled ‘haha thank you its lovely to meet you’ you replied with a blush creeping onto your cheeks. ‘oh I’m sorry I’m jen and ill be running everything today’ she smiled. she then lead you into the dressing room where you were met with your makeup artist. ‘hello, oh my gosh what a beautiful girl.’ the man said as he stepped back and admired your face. ‘what a perfect canvas.’ he smiled. you giggled and shook his hand ‘I’m y/n, lovely to meet you’ you said smoothly. ‘oh you are so beautiful, I’m julian, come follow me’ the dark skinned beauty guided you to your chair and sat you down. you both got along automatically and began to chat away about almost everything. the conversation was going great, julian was hilarious and so entertaining. it wasn’t until something he said really grabbed your attention. ‘are you nervous about shooting with harry?’ julian asked. you stopped for a moment repeating the question. ‘harry?’ you asked confused. julian looked at you in shock. ‘oh my gosh love, you don’t know? you are shooting this campaign with harry styles’ julian explained. your breath was caught in your throat. harry styles. the insanely gorgeous harry styles. julian has got to be joking.
before you could even say another world jen walked in the room checking the time. ‘y/n we are starting in 5 minutes come with me to get changed love’ jen said pretty quickly. you paused for a moment still in shock from the news julian told you. you quickly got out of your chair and followed jen to the change room. you jogged up to jen, ‘jen am i shooting with harry styles?’ you asked in complete innocence. jen paused and looked at you ‘yes silly. did your manager not tell you.’ you shook your head. jen let out a little laugh and signalled you to follow her. you arrived to the change room where you were handed an orange calvin klein thong. is that all? jen spoke to you while you dressed. ‘don’t worry about it love, harry is lovely.’ she assured you. you nodded and followed her out. she handed you a robe to put on over your practically bare body. ‘i can’t believe you didnt know you were shooting with harry.’ she began ‘he was the one who asked for you in the shoot’ she laughed. ‘what do you mean?’ you asked. ‘he first saw you walking the yves saint laurent show and ever since he wanted to shoot this campaign with you.’ she informed you. you were left in shock. once you reached the set your nerves struck you. there was a white wall and floor as the set like lots of shoots but there was also a bathtub full of bubbles, pink petals, orange peels and glitter. you were excited but still really nervous and self conscious now that you knew you were going to be photographed in only a thong.
you were bought back to life by a manly voice. ‘hello love i am mario and i am going to be your photographer.’ he smiled. the man was a bit older, maybe his 30′s you guessed. you could also hear a tint of an italian accent laced behind his voice. you smiled and introduced yourself. then the rest of the crew shook hands with you and introduced themselves as well as you. then a few more people entered the room. harry styles, jen, julian and a few other people. you shook hands with the people and then you reached harry styles. ‘hello love I’m harry lovely to meet you’ he greeted in his charming british accent. his voice was so smooth and delicate you could almost melt. you smiled ‘hello i’m y’n, its a pleasure to work with you’ you smiled as a blush crept onto your cheeks. you were both in white robes ready to start. ‘shall we start’ mario proposed and everyone cheered and nodded. harry swiftly took his robe off leaving him in orange calvin klein boxers with a white waistband and cali klein written along it in black. the matching set to your thong. you took off your robe leaving you in nothing but a thong and holding your bare breasts in your arms. you looked up at harry and saw him smirk before turning back to mario. you blushed but listened to instructions. everything you both needed to know was already said and you two walked towards the bath.
it was halfway through the shoot and the music in the background was playing calmly and the shots were being taken. harry and you were not awkward at all, it actually felt quite comfortable. the shoot was quite intimate which lead to a lot of touchy touchy shots and pleasurable scenes. mario was so happy with both of you he just couldn’t stop smiling. mario stated he didnt want any full nudity slipping out which you were thankful for. that meant your nipples wouldn’t be peeking out at anytime. in some shots harry would be holding your breasts for you which he was quite cheeky about. you both would giggle at times like school kids but at other times all you could hear was his heavy breathing in your ear and his sensational touch on you. mario wanted the scenes to portray a young couple in pure lust and love. harry would be kissing your neck and your head would be tilted back in pleasure. it was an amazing shoot and the bath and wetness just made it even more lustful. once the shoot was done everyone was cheering. mario was just so happy. you both put your robes on and mario gave you both a massive hug. he was just so ecstatic. he said the photos turned out even better then he imagined. he called it “i create in my calvin.”
you thanked the crew and everyone else before heading back to your change room. its been a few moments since you had just arrived in your change room and you were just staring at yourself in the mirror. in nothing but your thong you just couldn’t believe the amazing creation you were apart of. and how gorgeous harry was. a second later harry opened your change room door and came in. ‘hello love’ he smirked. he was just so irresistible. ‘hello’ you smiled. he walked over to you and leant into your ear to whisper, ‘i just wanted to say you were amazing and that i had such an amazing time with you’ you almost had an orgasm just from his raspy voice but you contained yourself. but before you could reply, harry had start peppering kisses on your neck and then pinned you against the dressing room wall. your were in complete shock not expecting this at all. you moaned as harry sucked on your sweet spot and then let his hand roam around your wet body. he tightly held his grip on your ass before slowly taking you to the carpet floor beneath you both. you were struggling to keep your body still as he placed sloppy kisses on your neck, collarbones, chest, boobs, core and just above your thong that you had yet to remove. he then lifted his head and stared at you in the eyes, his eyes full of lust and you just couldn’t let him stop there. ‘harry please’ you moaned in an airy breath. ‘tell me what you want baby’ he groaned in his raspy velvet voice. ‘i want you please, harry p-please’ you caved. he smirked and then pulled down the thong so your body was left fully bare. he pulled hid boxers down and lined himself to you. he then slowly thrusted into you causing you to tilt your head back even more and arch your back due to the massive amount of pleasure you were receiving. harry thrusted into you and leaned down to place a kiss on your collarbone and then your jaw. ‘fuck y/n’ he moaned. ‘you’re so tight baby’ he spoke in a husky voice. you opened your eyes and were met with his forest green eyes twinkling. ‘fuck harry I’m gonna cum’ you gasped as you felt yourself almost reach your high. harry sped up a little bit so when you did you would feel absolutely amazing. the both of you reached your highes and harry fell beside you. the room was full of heavy panting and the smell of sweet sex. harry stood up and retrieved his robe. he then reached his hand out to pull you off the ground which you gladly took. ‘lovely meeting you y/n’ harry smirked and winked at you. and then he leaned in and gave you a kiss on the cheek and slowly whispered in your ear ‘and i love your vanilla scent baby.’ he said and then winked and left the room just like that.
Let me tell you something about these girls. All that stuff you hear about them being rude, etc? Utter shit. When I was there I felt like i was surrounded by people who actually cared about me, who supported me for who I am and not for who they “thought” I was. I remember when I was just about to take a picture with them… Normani looked me straight in the eyes and said “Hey,beautiful!” and that’s when I lost it. I ran straight up to Lauren and I told her how she’s my sunshine and she lit up and wiped my tears. We took the first picture. By the second picture , I was a bit calmer and I wanted them ALL to feel included so I asked Ally to stand in front of me and she gave me the biggest smile ever. Afterwards, I was telling them how I was 11 months clean and Lauren said “Yay! I’m so proud of you! Please keep being strong, I love you!” SHE LOOKED ME STRAIGHT IN THE EYES. I told them they helped me well you know… to my dad and they said “Yay!” and jumped up and down and hugged me. I started crying again and I hugged them each individually and Normani just hugged me, silence. She just held me tight and I have never gotten the best hug until then. Lauren? She hugged me to the point I couldn’t breathe. Camila hugged me tight, really tight for a while and her voice was so soothing. Dinah kept rubbing my back and saying “shh shh” and she feels like a pillow she’s so soft (THAT IS A GOOD THING IM NOT TRYING TO MAKE FUN OF HER) and Ally hugged me (I had to bend down a little) and kept making me smile and made silly faces to get me to not cry.. then it was all gone, Big Rob pulled me away and I’d do anything to get those few minutes back. Big Rob is actually really nice and I gave him a hug and laughed when I said I was gonna start doing his part in Burnin Up!! Thank you for the best day1 ssweet-dispositionnwaakeme-uptheofficialfifthharmony
The least I can do for all you after all you’ve done for me is describe what happened when I met One Direction and got to give them my artbooks.
I was lucky, really lucky.
The history About a year ago, I met Louise at Wembley. Louise is Dan’s, 1D’s guitarist, mom. I’d had my art on me at the time and we’d been talking on Twitter. She said she would try to help.
So, she gave my artbook that I’d made for the Where We Are Tour to Dan.
He then showed it around, and eventually Karen Payne took it, even though Dan had meant to give it to the 1D boys themselves. I didn’t hear about it after. (but there is more on that later)
We kept in touch though, and about a year ago, Louise suggested that I join her for the next tour, which turned out to be On The Road Again. A year is a long time though, so I had plenty of time to put together a new artbook, with new art, even though I was a little discouraged after never hearing what happened to my other book.
Concert week Fast forward to the week before the concert. You were all helping, reblogging and tweeting to get my art noticed. My concert was supposed to be on Saturday 10/10/2015, but earlier that week, there was a little hick up that had us all worrying I might not be able to go at all. Thankfully, Dan was able to move the tickets to Sunday 11/10/2015. I was able to move my return flight (for a fee), and book an extra night at the hotel that Louise and her family (her daughter Jade and her sister Jude) had picked out, that we were staying in together.
I spent the Saturday with my friend Sam @almost-a-class-act who (very unfortunately) could not be there on the Sunday because like my flight, her train was booked and she couldn’t change her ticket.
I spent Sunday afternoon with Dan and his family, visiting Cadbury World. That was fun and I ate surprisingly little chocolate. There’s a ride there that we took photos on as well, and Dan has them, I think, but I’m sure they’ll come my way. Here’s a photo of me and some hot chocolate (taken by Dan).
Anyway, let’s move on. We went back to the hotel where there was a wedding that I was half expecting Harry Styles to crash (but he didn’t). Soon we were on the road again (ooooo punny), walking to the stadium and getting our tickets from the box office. They had a blue guest badge with them which I assumed was because we were catching up with Dan at some point.
I sat with Jude in a quite far away yet with a very good view accessible seat while Louise and Jade sat together as well, on regular seats, somewhere else. We watched Jamie Lawson and thought he was great!
When he was done someone from One Direction’s security team came over (I had never seen him before), and asked for our names, so I said Maartje (but they had me written down as Faye). So he took us through the stadium, down a lift to backstage. I at this point still had no clue because I thought we were seeing Dan (which we did, obviously). I saw Ashton Irwin in the hallway. Anyway, we were sat down in a room opposite catering, and Louise and Jade joined us. Then their ‘tour mom’ Sally came in and introduced herself and she was telling me how she’d seen my art and that she’d been following it for a while. You’d think I’d have an inkling by that point, but I think I was just afraid to get my hopes up.
The meet and greet Next thing she said was “Right, we have to move you all for the meet & greet.” And I just went really quiet and squeaked “Is this what I think it is?” and everyone laughed at me good-naturedly for not figuring it out sooner.
Back to being smiley but really quiet. We moved out of the room and passed Liam in the hall, who got a big hug from Jade and told us “I’ll come meet you in a minute.”
So we moved into the next hall, very near the stage, and Sally let us know that it wasn’t usually like this and that there was usually a room for it but they were late to get on stage so it’d have to be quick. So we put the things we wanted signed out on the table (my mini artbook for me) and we talked a bit. Sally said that they see a lot of the things we post on social networks. So never think they don’t see you. They do. She told me that they knew who I was. I think Sally also tells them things. Meanwhile, Harry was already ready but in the hallway, and waiting for the rest.
Niall came over first, and I shook his hand because hugging someone in a wheelchair is difficult, haha. I gave him my artbook and he looked at it, flipping through it. When he found a painting of himself, he commented on it “Who’s this good looking guy?” and everyone laughed.
Harry then came over and kissed me on the cheek and hugged me and I very nearly made it awkward because us Dutchies kiss three times on the cheek to say hi so I went to do that but then realised that Harry wasn’t Dutch so we nearly bumped faces (hahaha I’m so dumb) and I apologised about ten times.
I gave him my book and he seemed really humbled (they are seemed to be, to be honest), and asked “Is this for me?” and then he started looking at it and asked me if I’d drawn them on the computer and told me I was very talented (thanks, Harry). Then he just continued looking at all of it and he talked to Jude about it.
I’m not really clear on the order of what happened next, to be honest, because it was all so quick.
Again, I’m not sure what the order is here but Harry was flipping through my book, apparently looking for something, and then he came back over. He pulled the letter I had stuck on an empty page in my book out - I was really confused because I thought he didn’t want to keep that - handed me the book back and asked me “Can you sign this for me, please?”
I turned into a potato. I swear. I got so dumb. I was like “Really?” in disbelief because I wasn’t expecting him to turn the tables. “Well, what do you want me to write?” Like I’d forgotten anything I’d ever written online, or in my book, or on twitter. I just forgot how to put something nice in a book but then I got my brain back and wrote: To Harry,
Thank you for being lovely and such an inspiration.
Lots of love,
Faye (or Maartje)
Then Louis and Liam came in, very chummy, and said hi and signed my booklet. Liam was about to sign the two remaining artbooks on the table but I told them they were for them and he was super nice and surprised. And then, yeah, here it comes… he told me he had seen my other artbook that his mom has. (I also saw Karen and Geoff, they passed us)
I got a photo with him and Louis, who was also a sweetie and complimented me on the art a lot. I got a picture with them and Jade also got one (hilariously telling me to get out of the way first and making us all laugh).
After that it was time for them to go and I’d missed the opportunity to take a photo with Niall. But anyway, Harry came back to hug and kiss me again and then I gave Dan a hug because he’d helped make it happen (With Louise, Jude and Sally) and wished them all a good show and then they were walking off (with Liam and Louis still flipping through the book).
That’s it. It was so fast. But it was everything. My art in their hands, with them being incredibly humble and lovely, and Harry especially making me feel so appreciated. That right there was probably the best moment ever for me as a person and an artist. I was there to see them, and he made it about me (and Jade). They all did, and it was absolutely wonderful and I couldn’t have asked for more.
I am so incredibly grateful to Dan, Louise, Jude, Jade, Sally and the other people who made this happen for me, and all of you! It means a lot to me because as you know, becoming a part of this fandom was the best accident that has ever happened to me and my 1D art is some of the best I’ve done. I’m sure I forgot loads of things, because it’s so hard to absorb everything. I was pretty much on a cloud for the rest of the concert… Best night ever. Thank you boys!
I really hope I’ll hear from the boys (who knows), and I have loads more photos on the way that I will share later but I just couldn’t wait to write this down.
