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.

BBQ Style Diary

August 3, 2015
Summer BBQ Summer Style

August is here 🙂 So that means it is officially BBQ season style diary time…

Whether you are hosting, attending or even crashing a BBQ this summer… Make sure you have your BBQ fashion game on point. You want to look cool, stylish and effortless. Base your look around being comfortable… maybe add some layers and if you cannot bear wearing flats whack on some cute wedges (no skyscrapers ladies). Pastel colours are effortless and easily accessible in the high street. Mix them up with some designer items to stand out from the crowd effortlessly!!

This weekend I attended two BBQ’s, check out my style diary looks below…

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.

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.

Valentines Day in Marseille

August 12, 2014

I joined the InterContinental on Valentines evening 14th Feb for several cocktails and a light bite with my parnter. We had travelled to Marseille Vieux Port for a long weekend and I would have to admit dining at the InterContinental was the highlight of our stay in Marseille. We began the evening with several Manhattans which quite quickly got us into a good spirit for the evening. The staff were fantastic and made an already good evening even better. One particular staff member called Julian, was very accommodating even his staff moved silently and professionally around him even whilst he was getting to know his guests. Having spent some hours at the InterContinental we sadly had to leave (at 1AM) having enjoyed many cocktails, several light bites to eat and a bottle of wine…

 I hope we were well behaved at the end of the evening 🙂

Food Festival On Carnaby St.

July 23, 2014

As a self confessed foodie of course I was going to make my way over to the first food festival taking place on Carnaby Street, Sunday 20th July between the hours of 11am – 6pm.

There was 30 of the area’s best restaurants, bars and cafés who brought along their top notch dishes out onto the streets of Carnaby
It was free to attend and there was a range of £5 taster dishes, one day only offers and free food stands such as ice creams (obviously I made a beeline for the ice cream que… My chosen flavour was Crème brûlée… Mmm

There was also a series of expert cooking demonstrations led by presenter and foodie Hardeep Singh Kohli which was interesting to watch and I was able to pick up a few tips.

I went to check out all the awesome dishes with a couple of girl friends and my brother. We were around the area (Carnaby St. & Regent St. for a couple of hours). Regent St. was also closed off for catwalk shows, dance acts, live music was playing along with various other cool attractions such as a Pimms bus and man made garden.

We had a great day and luckily for us the weather was pretty on point too. Looking forward to attending another food festival soon… mmm maybe a chocolate one? 😀

Girls Just Want To Have F U N

March 14, 2014

So0o0o0o Friday Night’s client meeting turned Penthouse party in Embankment left me feeling like death warmed up on Saturday morning. Not the best way to start a sunny saturday… But luckily I had booked a pamper session a few weeks before at 12pm that day, so off I trot to Holborn for my 2hr pamper session. This included a full body Massage, full body detoxifying Mask and facial. I was half expecting to ‘skip’ out the salon door like a new woman ready to embrace the day… Unfortunately I left feeling just as grim as when I walked into the spa… I can’t say it was the best I have ever had but I’m not sure I can judge when I resembled a gremlin with a head full of ‘toxins’. I kept my head down and caught the train back to Kent which is slow and takes an hour… I crashed and burned… The girls and I; Gemma, Parris and Katharine had planned a Mumu’s night out for a few weeks. We had been looking forward to a well needed catch up…. Saturday 8th March was girls night! My tan was looking fresh from yesterday’s spray and the girlies were looking HOT as per usual… Met up with a few old mass and we all had an awesome night. We raved on down to source bar (which I haven’t been to in about two years) needless to say I ended up crawling home at 5am…Kaf and I sat in my kitchen (which has unlimited amounts of FOOD urgh stuffing ours faces with copious amounts of junk… ‘Detox starts Monday’ www.mumuexperience.com Chloé xXx
