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
  • 18-hole championship golf course nearby
  • Complimentary internet access and all international phone calls from guest room land lines are free of charge

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!

Pretty Little Thing Launch Night at The Sanderson Hotel, London.

I had a great evening with my girl friends at the launch of Pretty Little Thing!

The Prosecco was flowing and the canapés kept on appearing! The venue; ‘The Sanderson Hotel’ in London was a perfect location choice. It was packed with fashionistas, stylists, press, magazine editors, bloggers, celebs, MUA’s and a whole bunch of awesome people. The DJ played all the the right tracks to get everyone in the party mood; it was a great atmosphere.

The photo booth was definitely the highlight of my night… I am a serious sucker for a fancy dress photo booth – what is there not to LOVE?!!! 

Lucy Mecklenburgh’s line is cute, fresh, girlie and perfect for summer! I cannot wait to buy myself a new wardrobe for summer 2015.

The Goring Hotel in London’s Belgravia

The Goring Hotel in London’s Belgravia!

The Great British Summer is finally HERE! It’s time for some fun in the sun 🙂 yesterday I enjoyed a lovely ‘long’ lunch and a game of Croquet oooo I do say. Where else can Croquet be played in London you might ask?… Try the Goring!!

I had the Smoked Salmon & Devilled Eggs to start followed by an amazing Lobster Omelette – a MUST try! It was not too heavy, quite creamy but very moorish. OH and the Chef was definitely not stingy with the Lobster.

“The Goring Hotel is an historic luxury hotel in London’s Belgravia district, famed for its independent style and modern British cuisine”.

The Goring stands out from the crowd as London’s last family-owned luxury hotel, with over a hundred years of passion for hospitality and commitment to service. Staff are trained to the highest standards of hospitality – always retaining a timely touch of fun. At The Goring, guests and made to feel at home, and after 105 years, they still continue to surprise and delight even the most frequent of guests…which I seem to have become!!

The Goring enjoys an enviable location in Belgravia. With Buckingham Palace, Knightsbridge, Mayfair and the Royal Parks all located nearby, it’s perfectly placed for shopping or theatre, work or play.

Magnums 25th Anniversary

October 15, 2014

27th July Regent Street saw the epic Magnum takeover!

It was awesome… FREE chocolate Magnums for all 🙂 25,000 Magnums were in stock and staff were on hand ready to dish them out to all the chocolate junkies.

As we are a nation of selfie crazed citizens, there was an opportunity to WIN a Henry Holland Magnum inspired dress… all you needed to do was TWEET a picture of yourself (a selfie) with your yummy freshly dipped magnum and hash tag MagnumRegentSt.

Shortly after I tweeted my Magnum Selfie I was awarded a free makeover in the VIP ‘Magnum” tent 🙂 I was handed a glass of bubbly on my way in, along with another magnum ice cream and was told I could receive a free makeup goodie bag from KIKO; also on Regent St (which I of course collected)! Woop Woop a successful day… but you had me at ‘free ice-cream’ 😛

Marbella Ocean Club… My 1st Champagne Spray :O

July 17, 2014

Over the May bank holiday my girl friends and I headed to Marbella for 6days to let off some serious steam and party in sun 🙂

On Sunday 26th May, I lost my champagne spray virginity after paying crazy money for entry to the Ocean Club spray party! My girlfriend and I got to the party quite late; 4pm to be exact… This was partly due to us being lazy, relaxing in the sun, sipping on the amazing fresh cocktails at Sala Beach. The day party at Ocean Club starts from 10am until 8/9pm – this is more or less when everyone leaves. The champagne spray starts at 6pm and its basically thousands of people going chicken oriental with a bottle of Dom Perignon. It is completely OTT and full of show offs but it was good fun and I’m glad I went to experience it for myself 🙂

I was bull charged into the pool so the majority of photos I managed to take with caution on my iPhone 5s, I look soaked in… Oh I was completely drenched in champagne by a handful of delightful souls 🙂 I didn’t mind and several occasions bombed into the pool myself… Good job I went pretty natural; I didn’t have any eyelashes on/much makeup/hair extensions. phew… But I did feel slightly under glammed (even for me) so if I ever go again I think I will go all out… just for fun 😀

Bronzed Goddess

March 7, 2014

Last night I managed to squeeze in a ‘Vita Liberata’ Spray Tan at the ‘Benefit Boutique’ in Covent Garden;5 minutes from where I live. I usually get my tan  at ‘Fab Spray Tans’ in Kent (usually on a Friday night) BUT as I am in London during the week, I had to look at other options!

I came across ‘Benefit Boutique’ by chance late yesterday afternoon. I was busy googling spray tan salons in Covent Garden. I didn’t know Benefit had rooms for pamper sessions, sprays tans, waxes, eyebrows etc. They also do make overs which I will probably try next week! Luckily the Boutique had one space left at 5:30pm so I got myself booked in and a few hours later I was standing naked in the spray booth waiting to be transformed! I can’t stand tan lines so I always decline the option of the ‘paper thong’ but I was taking no chances with muddy looking feet so the sticky shoes were a YES please! My tan specialist was incredibly friendly and sweet. The whole process takes around 15minutes as I like to be sprayed twice. I wanted to be brown not ‘lightly sun kissed.’ I walked in like a pasty goat so I need to be leaving like I have stepped off of a plane after a week in the Bahamas! The whole process took around half an hour which was ideal plus it was now dark outside… WIN no one can see my tangoed new look in the dark. Hoping no one would see me (plus I’m braless) I quickly pop into Holland and Barretts to trial a couple pea-protein yoghurts… FAIL they taste horrible (I’m trying to limit my dairy and soya intake so I am looking at other options, clearly this was not one). Anyway I get home and sleep in all black loose clothing, I put a towel over my pillows and sheets as not to stain them! I wash my tan off in the morning and I am looking meeeeaaan. Loving my new bronzed look and I will definitely book myself in again! Now the real question is how long will this tan last??? Meh, as long as I am looking fresh for the weekend it’s all good in the hood.
