I always catch myself wanting to be able to just move away and live somewhere else. Sadly though, I doubt that will happen anytime soon. Our next guest did just that though, with a little help from her boyfriend and his new job.
She’s a Texan, born and bred, now currently living in London, England. The change has been a fun experience for her from what I can gather, and she’s having the time of her life in London. When she’s not hitting up the Goth & Fetish clubs, she can be found touring the historic parts of the city.
Amanda Kee is her name and she happily accepted my offer for an interview. Continue reading below and find out more about this awesome model!

Luny: Please tell everyone your modeling name and how you came about choosing your name.
Amanda Kee: My modeling name is actually my real name! For a little while I had a few different aliases, but none of them every stuck. People would just call me by my real name since it is short and easy to say. So I ended up just using that. I am thankful to have a very supportive family as well, so I never had to worry about hiding what I did from anyone.
Luny: I see you are a fellow Texan, what prompted you to want to move to London?
Amanda Kee: My boyfriend ended up getting a job here in London. I was about to finish up with college in Texas and had the opportunity to move right afterwards. Not many people get the chance to just move across the world so I took it!
Luny: What major differences have you noticed vs the US and the UK that have taken you time to get use to?
Amanda Kee: Obviously, the weather. I am used to everything being quite warm all of the time so I am adjusting to more cold days than hot. Also, the fact that you don’t really drive here has taken a while for me. I like it, but you have to plan your trip out accordingly! I definitely get much more exercise here than I did back home!
Luny: I noticed you are also an artist. What sort of things do you create and what are you working on for the future?
Amanda Kee: I don’t really put as much time in to my work as I used to, sadly. But I like to paint and draw primarily. I just draw right now since it doesn’t take as long to set up and I can watch a movie while doing. Currently working on a special gift for a friend of mine. When I am feeling extra creative I sculpt as well. I have two life size gimps in my living room that I created and they are quite the conversation piece haha.
Luny: What do you always find yourself doing everyday?
Amanda Kee: No matter what I always find myself sleeping in way later than I should have. When I finally bring myself to wake up I tend to waste a bit more time on my phone because I don’t want to get out of my cozy bed. But once I finally do I go workout and then focus on whatever it is I am doing that day.
Luny: Can you tell us a few of your websites you like to visit and why?
Amanda Kee: Facebook and Instagram are some pretty obvious ones along with my modeling profiles, but they are primarily it. I try not to waste TOO much time on the internet so I just stick to them for the most part (also guilty of a lot of online shopping pages!). I don’t need to sit around in bed on my phone any longer!
Luny: What has been your favorite place to visit so far in London and why?
Amanda Kee: I have really loved all of the goth and fetish clubs so far. There are so many and always something happening so it feels like a new adventure each week. I really love seeing the historic central areas of the city as well. Being from America, we don’t really have too much history around us there. It is every where in London and I love being able to see it all so easily.
Luny: If you ever move again, where could you see yourself living and why?
Amanda Kee: I have always thought that Vegas or LA would be fun ones!
Luny: Aside from your modeling and passion for art, what else do you love to do that we might not know?
Amanda Kee: Anime and video game conventions! They are some of my favorite things to go to and meet new people at!
Luny: Finally, do you have anyone you’d like to say thanks to or any websites you’d like to mention we visit?
Amanda Kee: That would definitely be a long list of people to thank! But at the very least, my parents for always being supportive and loving to whatever crazy passion I have going on in life. And my boyfriend for pushing me through the hard times and helping me to grow and become a better person.
