The Red Statement Blazer

April 5, 2017

I for one am a sucker for a blazer; I have a dozen different colours/styles hung up in my wardrobe (or say packed in my suitcase, depending on where I am jetting off to).

And lets be honest, we all love the classic black blazer. I mean, it is sophisticated, timeless and forever classy…how can it ever do you wrong? BUT now summer is approaching I think it is time to give the loyal black blazer a well deserved rest and maybe swap it for a statement piece instead… how about RED?

This is one of favourite blazers I bought from Zara not so long along. I like to style around the blazer or even rock it as a suit (I have the matching trousers of course).

OHHH and I don’t suggest walking around in nothing but a bikini and your blazer… just like I did for one of my most recent photo shoots. It was a lot colder than it looks… trust me.

GraceBay Babes

March 28, 2017

I stayed at The Grace Bay Club which is situated in Turks and Caicos for one week in January 2017. If you are able to visit the Caribbean then this Island and the resort should be on your list; if not first! I throughly enjoyed my stay and I am not being too kind in saying the resort was absolutely breath taking. Grace Bay Club is very spacious so you never feel crowded even on days that were notably busier then usual. The staff were extremely friendly, warm and accommodating… AND I was particular sold over by the two guys who managed to chop down several coconuts for the girls and I to drink!!! The GBC beach is mesmorising; the sand is so white whilst the sea was incredibly blue… If you get a chance to explore the island then please do as there are many amazing places to visit and locals are genuinely happy to accommodate/see you. If I’m honest, at the end of my stay I was definitely not ready to pack up and leave for London. I cannot wait to return sometime in the near future! 

Some of the places I visited outside the resort:

  • Danny Buoys (The local pub/bar and there is Karaoke on selected nights)
  • The Tuscany (another resort on the island)
  • Coco Bisto (Fish was to dieeee for)
  • Bella Luna (Yummy Pizza)
  • Da Conch Shack (Amazing Lobster Dishes!)
  • Coyaba (is a MUST)
  • Somewhere Cafe (Check out the Fajitas and I also went Scuba Diving on the beach there)
  • On Thursday night I went to Fish Fry.

Location: Grace Bay is a 15 minutes away from Providenciales International Airport.

Facilities:

  • 3 restaurants
  • 2 bars
  • 3 swimming pools
  • Anani Spa
  • Jacuzzi
  • fitness centre
  • 2 floodlit tennis courts
  • hobie cats
  • kayaks
  • windsurfing
  • scuba diving
  • Deep sea and bone fishing
  • boat excursions available

Sunset Series By Carlo Parducho

Shot by LA based commercial photographer at The Grafton on Sunset (Sunset Boulevard).

Thankfully the weather is pretty much always Sunny in Los Angeles so shooting in October was never going to be a worry.

I try to be as versatile as possible so the images are slightly different to some of my previous shoots.

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!

Detoxing – Rooting, Tooting & Juicing

July 1, 2015

Detoxing – Chloe shares juicing tips and health benefits!

Over the past two years I have completed several juice cleanses. Detoxing is something I enjoy and am passionate about. Occasionally I make my own juices but the majority of the time I embark on a juice cleanse programme.

So why cleanse?

Eating the right amount of fruits and vegetables can provide us with all the nutrition we need and keep us healthy for life. Physically eating your 5 a day can sometimes be tricky that’s why blending them together in juices is a fantastic idea to sneak in some extra goodness to your diet.

Juicing will make you feel amazing from the inside and glowing on the outside. You have the power to take charge of your health and get unstuck from your bad habits to create a healthy balanced life.

Some of the cleanses I have tried in the past two years

If you are going to make the juices yourself, remember fresh natural foods are best. Have a play with your own blender if you want to try yourself. It is always good to try the branded juices as a comparison and to educate yourself on the possible flavours and blends!

Obsidian also have a wellness centre located in Spain: http://obsidianwellness.com

Juices and smoothies taste delicious

Detoxification doesn’t have to be boring and bland. Make juices/smoothies that really tickle your taste buds. You can incorporate various supplements/powders in your drinks for that extra healthy oomph.

Support is important for your success. Let your friends/family around you know that you will be juicing. It may not be as easy as you imagined so ask for them to get on board by helping support and encourage you to stick to your plan.

Remember to stay positive! You are on your way to greatness!

Prague Castle

December 2, 2014

Prague Castle – My visit and experience

Prague Castle – the ancient symbol of the Czech state – is the most significant Czech monument and one of the most important cultural institutions.

Prague Castle is definitely a magical place to visit; especially in the Winter. I really enjoyed my trip to the castle and the architectural is a must see; very beautiful decor and atmosphere. I was also lucky enough to see the change of the guards at noon; this was pretty cool.

It is a lovely building steeped in history; luckily my entire tour was accompanied by the Director of the foreign Department from the Office of the President of the Republic PaedDr. Hynek Ravi. In short, I was told the history of the Castle throughout the duration of the tour whilst the Director also shared a couple of humorous stories related to the castle’s history.

I was also lucky enough to visit the rooms which tourists are not allowed access to.

Halloween Happy

November 18, 2014

My inspiration for Halloweeeeeeeen – KATY PERRY

My outfit was a cross between Cup Cake Katy and Whipped Cream Katy… Both outfits appeared in her video for California Girls!

I coloured my hair blue with some hair dye from SuperDrug. For my makeup I used a NARS & Benefit Foundation, Benefit Brows Kit, NARS Bronzer, MAC Blusher, YSL Touche Éclat, Double Lashes from ELURE, Benefit Mascara, MAC Red Lips & I drew on some thick flicks on my eye lids using a Loreal Eyeliner.

My friend Sarah dressed as a Skeleton 😛 Who knew her mum was a face paint pro!?!

We had a makeup artist at the house party in Knightsbridge so I was able to get some cute love hearts and lollipops painted on my body plus some funky facial glitter art!

I had a wicked night with great people!

RSPCA Christmas Market

November 17, 2014

On Saturday 14th November I was happy to support the RSPCA at their annual Christmas Market. This year the event was held inside the Leybourne Animal Centre which I thought was a great idea especially as the animals were able to get involved and meet lots of new people.

As an ambassador for the RSPCA, my friend Tanya and I had a few pictures at the centre to promote this great cause. We both raised the most funds for our chosen charity RSPCA in the year we competed for the Miss Earth Title. Tanya won the award in 2011 and myself in 2013.

The centre was open from 11am – 4pm.

There was a raffle, Santa’s Grotto, Lucky Dips, Tea and Cakes, Stalls selling books, gifts, second hand animal items and lots more.

All proceeds go directly to the centre.  http://www.rspca.org.uk/home

Queens of the Castle

October 24, 2014

At the beginning of October I was lucky enough to spend a week in the beautiful Czech Republic.

During the week I got up to all sorts of awesome activities and so there were no exceptions on my last day. On a bright sunny saturday morning I travelled to the Moravian-Silesian Region where I was able to spend a few hours at the Silesian Ostrava Castle. The atmosphere at the Castle was made up to portray a military camp during the Thirty Years War and I was able to watch several ‘battles’ played out by the soldiers. There were lots of wine/food stalls built up around the castle so luckily us girlies were able to taste a few of the medieval cuisines. In the Castle there was also traditional Czech butcher so some of the meat eaters could get stuck in!

Historical music was played aloud everywhere and there was a varied parade of folk crafts. The Exhibition of Moravian wine was a part of the castle’s regale.

Luckily we could put our expertise’s to practice since we had undergone a “crash course” of wine tasting underground in the Valtice  several days before.

Wine = Winning!

After the Castle I headed to the Golf resort Ostravice where we had a light lunch and were able to enjoy the spectacular views! It was a perfect ending to a jammed pack incredible week in Czech Republic.

Banana Baby

October 23, 2014
banana

I going to be loud and proud and admit I am obsessed with bananas! I am not about to go banana crazy but I do blend one or two almost everyday (that’s if I am not chopping up the little yellow fella and chucking it into my baobab cinnamon porridge.

I did a little research online and found 25 awesome Banana ‘facts.’

Due to my kind hearted nature I thought it was only fair to share all the banana facts/uses below:

ENJOY

  1. Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter.
  2. Eat two bananas before a strenuous workout to pack an energy punch and sustain your blood sugar.
  3. Protect against muscle cramps during workouts and nighttime leg cramps by eating a banana.
  4. Counteract calcium loss during urination and build strong bones by supplementing with a banana.
  5. Improve your mood and reduce PMS symptoms by eating a banana, which regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation.
  6. Bananas reduce swelling, protect against type II diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of white blood cells, all due to high levels of vitamin B-6.
  7. Strengthen your blood and relieve anemia with the added iron from bananas.
  8. High in potassium and low in salt, bananas are officially recognized by the FDA as being able to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attack and stroke.

    Eating Bananas Aids Digestion

  9. Rich in pectin, bananas aid digestion and gently chelate toxins and heavy metals from the body.
  10. Bananas act as a prebiotic, stimulating the growth of friendly bacteria in the bowel. They also produce digestive enzymes to assist in absorbing nutrients.
  11. Constipated? High fiber in bananas can help normalize bowel motility.
  12. Got the runs? Bananas are soothing to the digestive tract and help restore lost electrolytes after diarrhoea.
  13. Bananas are a natural antacid, providing relief from acid reflux, heartburn and GERD.
  14. Bananas are the only raw fruit that can be consumed without distress to relieve stomach ulcers by coating the lining of the stomach against corrosive acids.

    Natural Cures From A Simple Banana

  15. Eating bananas will help prevent kidney cancer, protects the eyes against macular degeneration and builds strong bones by increasing calcium absorption.
  16. Bananas make you smarter and help with learning by making you more alert. Eat a banana before an exam to benefit from the high levels of potassium.
  17. Bananas are high in antioxidants, providing protection from free radicals and chronic disease.
  18. Eating a banana between meals helps stabilize blood sugar and reduce nausea from morning sickness.
  19. Rub a bug bite or hives with the inside of the banana peel to relieve itching and irritation.
  20. Control blood sugar and avoid binging between meals by eating a banana.
  21. Eating a banana can lower the body temperature and cool you during a fever or on a hot day.
  22. The natural mood-enhancer tryptophan, helps to relieve Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
  23. Quitting smoking? Bananas contain high levels of B-vitamins as well as potassium and magnesium to speed recovery from the effects of withdrawal.
  24. Remove a wart by placing the inside of a piece of banana peel against the wart and taping it in place.
  25. Rub the inside of a banana peel on your leather shoes or handbag and polish with a dry cloth for a quick shine
