BURBERRY – London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015

September 16, 2015

BURBERRY – London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 – Looking back at last year…

With a Bohemian style and feel at the Burberry showcase in 2015, Burberry sent models down the runway dressed in patchwork floral printed dresses. Huge ponchos were the order of the day and shades of berry, ochre, teal and chocolate were this seasons flavours.

The collection was inspired by a mixture of folk craft in Britain and used quilting, whip-stitching and ornate embroidery on Burberry’s signature trench coats, as well as lace and crochet detailing across its delicate silk dresses.

The show, one of the starriest on the London Fashion Week calendar saw a number of big names in fashion in the front seats. Model veterans Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell were there along with photographer Mario Testino, as well as models of the moment Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn.

The show was supported with a live performance by British singer Clare Maguire. Burberry, which regularly invites young British music talent to perform at their shows, has in the past seen performances by Paloma Faith, Tom Odell and James Bay.

London Fashion Week begins next week and I am crazy about Burberry to see what they have in store for us this year. This is a brand I have always wished to be a part of #WhoKnowsWhatTheFutureHolds 😉

Miss Earth UK Finals

September 3, 2015

WOW what a hectic Bank Holiday Weekend I had!

From London to Kent to Birmingham to North Lincolnshire to Worcestershire then back home to Kent! I have clocked up some serious millage.

I would like to say what a lovely time I had at the Miss Earth UK 2015 finals. It was a pleasure presenting Miss Earth UK for the second year in a row and it was especially nice to catch up with all my pageant sisters and being able to gain new ones. I am already looking forward to next year!

Thanks again to Louise Brown (the UK Director of Miss Earth) for putting on a great event! I know how much effort it takes to put together an event like Miss Earth UK and it is only getting bigger and better each year. Congratulations to all the award winners and our new Miss Earth UK 2015 title holders.

The finale of Miss Earth UK 2015 was held on 29th August 2015 at the Burlington Hotel in Birmingham.

Katrina Kendall was crowned Miss Earth England 2015

Amy Meisak was crowned Miss Earth Scotland 2015

Lara Stephen was crowned Miss Earth Wales 2015.

All three ladies join Dearbhlá Walsh who was crowned Miss Earth Northern Ireland 2015 at City Hotel Derry on 13th July 2015 to make Team UK.

The lucky 4 will now represent their respective countries at the Miss Earth 2015 pageant in Vienna, Austria. 

Every single one of the girls competing were fantastic and rocked the stage!

Paris and the Eiffel Tower with Chloe…Parisian getaway!

July 20, 2015

Check out Paris and the Eiffel Tower with Chloe. Dreaming of a Parisian getaway!

Four years ago this summer I found myself being whisked away on a romantic getaway to Paris. If there is one thing you MUST do whilst exploring Paris it is to visit the magnificent Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the champ de mars in Paris, France.

It has become a global cultural icon of France and is one of the most recognisable structures in the world. As well as being the tallest structure in Paris, it is also the most visited monument in the world.

It is not surprising that the Eiffel Tower witnesses so many marriage proposals. It is a magical 324m Parisian icon, scaling three floors with panoramic views of the city.

If romance is what you are after you can chink glasses in the top floor champagne bar overlooking the city and if you wait to visit the tower after dark the tower sparkles every hour on the hour with 20,000 gold lights… Heck, it doesn’t get more romantic then that.

The Avocado is officially Queen Green

July 16, 2015

Avocados – Sorry Kale you’re no longer Queen Green… All Hail the Avocado!

Now before I go any further, I would just like to point out that I have been obsessed with the avocado since day one (it probably helps that I am a vegetarian/pescatarian)

Why should you be eating them?!

  • Avocados help aid weight loss
  • Boosts your brain performance
  • Incredibly nutritious
  • Avocado help control blood pressure
  • Improves your heart health
  • One of the cleanest produce around
  • Contain more potassium then bananas
  • Loaded with fibre and antioxidants
  • May help prevent cancer
  • Easy to incorporate into your diet
  • THEY ARE DELICIOUS

Here are some of the most abundant nutrients, in a single 3.5 ounce (100 gram) serving (3):

  • Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA.
  • Folate: 20% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA.
  • Potassium: 14% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA.

Then it contains small amounts of Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorous, Vitamin A, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin) and B3 (Niacin).

This is coming with 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. Although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 of those are fibre so there are only 2 “net” carbs, making this a low-carb friendly plant food.

There is literally SO much you can too with these green babies. You can have avocado on toast, add them to smoothies and salads… You can create a stuffed avocado by adding a flavourful filling of your choice say tuna, egg, goats cheese, prawns, smoked salmon, vegetables, couscous… AHHH I’m hungry again.

Avocado's rule!

 

On that note I will leave you with some mouth-watering pictures of avocado dishes that you could try out at home.

LCF fashion Show 15 Designer: Edda Grimes

July 15, 2015

London College of Fashion (LCF) Fashion Show 15

Here are a few behind the scenes shots of me modelling for Edda Grimes at the LCF Fashion Show 11/07/15

Text taken from: http://1ndependent15.co.uk/designers/womenswear/trompe-loeil-reborn/

Edda Gimnes’s illustrated monochromatic outfits, proved a punchy statement as models transformed into real life 3D fashion illustrations by manifesting a hand drawn 2D effect that surely left us wanting for more.

Using mainly a white canvas as the backdrop to her approach, thick black ‘pen lines’ stood out for all the right reasons amongst the overlooking crowd.

The work felt almost surreal as models who resembled moving imagery caught your eye at halt, details such as gloves, headwear and eyewear were all incorporated within the dress and suit designs.

This was my ‘first look’ of the day and I thoroughly enjoyed rocking this awesome outfit. I felt like a 3D re-vamped Audrey Hepburn. I thought the accessories i.e. hats, sunnies and gloves were a fab finishing statement and completed the look perfectly.

An Escape to the Horseshoes East Farleigh Kent

July 14, 2015

Showing my Aussie friends the Kentish hidden delights ‘The Horseshoes’ East Farleigh, Kent!

A rainy ‘very British summer’ Sunday evening was brightened up with a cosy dinner for four at The Horse Shoes in East Farleigh, Kent.

A quote from their website:

‘Village pubs don’t get much more relaxing than The Horseshoes in East Farleigh. Pull up a chair by one of our log-fires, or stretch out in our sun-soaked beer garden, and enjoy some of the best-kept cask ales in Kent. We also offer top-notch pub-food, sometimes served alongside a cracking session of live local jazz.’

It had been a little while since I visited this restaurant so I was looking forward to seeing how it had evolved over that time.

For starters we had a generous helping of Chicken liver parfait, Scallops and Pea and Mint Soup. For the main course the 3 meat eaters had a trio of meats roast dinner and I had a fisherman’s platter; which was actually a sharing dish but I was feeling piggy so ate the lot myself.

Service was good but a little slow with our food but we were with good company and were happy to wait a little longer. The staff were friendly and attentive. I thoroughly enjoyed my pea and mint soup whilst I thought the fish platter was simply ok. The bread was slightly too thick for me, but that is just my preference. Two bottles of house red were consumed; South African Sauvignon Cabernet which was really good x2.

My friends from Australia had a fantastic evening and really enjoyed the food, which of course made me happy. They especially loved the drive itself to the restaurant; they had never seen so many tiny/narrow roads. I sometimes forget how beautiful Kent is.

The views outside are attractive with the horse stables right next door. The atmosphere inside was simply charming and the restaurant is decorated beautifully with lots of character.

All in all, there were no issues for me not to want to come back and it was the perfect place to show my friends the Garden of England; Kent.

Wednesday 8th July 2015

This week London underground is set to become a chaotic standstill. At 18:30pm this evening the London underground and First Great Western trains will not be running at all.

First Great Western will be affected from Thursday 9th july to the start of Saturday 11th july

July 2, 2015

An evening with GTM Models, TUMI and Mr Nico Rosberg

Last night I was invited by my agency; GTM Models to attend the TUMI – VIP event. It was hosted at the TUMI Flagship Store, 211-213 Regent Street

I was lucky enough to meet German F1 star and racing driver Nico Rosberg so I had several snaps, including a fun selfie with him. He is 5’10 and quite cute in the flesh!

I follow formula 1 myself as this is a sport I am particularly interested in. It was great to meet Nico in person and I even got the chance to speak a little German with him (I am currently learning).

Nico was very accommodating and friendly. He spoke about the up coming race this weekend at Silverstone in Great Britain and has high hopes of beating Lewis Hamilton; his Mercedes Benz team mate. Lets see how things play out this weekend…

I also got behind the wheel of the F1 simulator which was in the store ready to play with and I came out with an impressive score… much to the misery of all the guys I managed to beat 🙂

What we ate: goats cheese apricot on rye bread, goats cheese and raisin pastry, caramel chocolate tarts, chocolate eclairs, 

What we drank: lots of Champagne and pink mojitos!

Goodie bag GOSS: I was given a Tumi rechargeable battery pack

Keep an eye on Nico this weekend in the British F1 race at Silverstone.

Cosmopolitan Summer Party

July 2, 2015

Cosmopolitan hosted an awesome Summer Party on 13th June

So my adventures have taken me many places but never the Cosmopolitan Summer party!

There was live music from Kiss FM’s DJ, Neev, a never ending que for the BBQ, yummy wheyhey ice-cream, candyfloos, drinks from Emmi CHOCO LAIT and fabulous Zubrowka cocktails and Gancia prosecco.

Wheyhey provided a scrumptious selection of protein ice cream! Yes PROTEIN ice cream AND with ZERO sugar! Ahhhhmazing. Wheyhey use a natural sweetener called Xylitol in all their flavours which is great for health and fitness fanatics such as myself. Each pot provides 20grams of protein and you can choose from a range of flavours such as; Banoffee, Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate. Wheyhey use a natural sweetener called Xylitol in all their flavours.

Throughout the day there were live shows on stage and depending on what you fancied you were able to pop between the three rooms inside and head outside whenever you pleased.

There were Gandy’s flip flops and Freya swimwear which were showcasing their latest collection.

A few well known beauty brands were amongst the party such as Soft & Gentle,  Veet, Rimmel, Lee Stafford and Seekers of The Sun.

I managed to get my hands on an awesome bag of goodies from Lee Stafford. I particularly love the shine spray when I am feeling a slick and straight do and sea salt spray for my hair when I’m channeling my inner beach babe; effortless tousled waves.

Once the party was over you were able to grab a free goodie bag bursting with freebies! Well that was music to my ears!
