This Week: John Frieda, Lily Cole, Bip Ling, Appiness, Halloween, Trevor Mcdonald and Bonfire Night (and breath!)
I’ve always been in love with John Frieda’s Frizz Ease, Â which was a godsend (particularly through my teenage years). So when I got invited to Claridges Hotel in London to celebrate John Frieda’s 25th birthday, I was delighted – and so was my hair!
I wore my AQ/AQ dress and arrived to see model, DJ and all round good girl Bip Ling spinning the decks. Supermodel, brainbox and social entrepeneur Lily Cole played a storming set too – a little bit Blondie, a bit of Câ€™est Chic, bravo Lily! I caught up with Lucy Watson from Made in Chelsea looking gorge and said hello to the very talkative George Lamb (Britain’s answer to George Clooney in my eyes). My little brother was my chaperone for the evening and a gentleman he was too.
My friend Azim had his annual Halloween party (called Hallowzeem – a combo of Halloween and Azim, love it!). It was held at the South Place Hotel and boy was it a hellish nightmare. I was plummeted into a cacophony of zombies, dead celebs and the obligatory twerking Miley Die-rus.
I found a tartan clad Laura Whitmore looking ‘dead’ sexy with a kitchen knife in her stomach. I shared a rum and coke with Vanessa from the Saturdays and her lovely boyfriend Gary. Vanessa was quite frankly unrecognisable, clad in Mexican ‘day of the dead’ face paint. As for me? Well I was a zombie nurse of course! Itâ€™s the one and only time Iâ€™d say it was great for me to have an axe through my head.
I woke up next to a golden pumpkin, which I can say had been down Matt Johnson’s pants (sorry about that).
App of the week: GymPact
I’ve downloaded this new app called GymPact, where you earn cash for exercising, paid by members who don’t. I’ve been using it to keep me exercising consistently.
I know it sounds too good to be true but it’s seriously easy to get involved. You set a weekly goal and a price that you’ll pay other GymPacters if you miss a session and the app uses GPS and other services to keep you honest, so no cheating. Every week you complete your pact you earn cash. Get paid to go to the gym and stay healthy? I’m already $5 in! ‘Appy days!
In other news…
Dong dong headline story of the week! I saw Trevor McDonald at Arsenal Tube station (straight after Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-0).Â Plus, Bonfire night was amazing. I saw a firework display at Southwark Park and let’s just say, love was in the air.
I love, love!
See you next week.
