Celebrating the Shard’s first birthday, my embarrassing DJ moment and getting ready for the BAFTAs
Iâ€™ve never attended a party to celebrate the birth of a building before but this week I went to The View from The Shard to wish it a happy 1st, and what a birthday bash it was. Unlike most parties of infants Iâ€™ve attended, there were no candles, bouncy castles, party poppers or games of pass the parcel (disappointing) but there was a performance by former Sugarbabes, MKS, champagne, canapĂ©s and fit boys. Ooeer! My party wear was by FindersKeepers and my bag was by Textile Federation. Fancy!
I got chatting to hot, new girl band Neon Jungle who made me chuckle and welcomed me open armed into their band (albeit for one night only). Girl Power! Brace yourself, thereâ€™s a whole lot of hair in this photo.
The music continued to be ace even after MKS performed. In fact, I had a very embarrassing moment when I went up to the DJ, gushed at how amazing his set was and then asked where I could see him again. Turns out it was Rob da Bank doing an exclusive DJ set. An awkward moment that soon became magical as we joked it off with a peace signed selfie. Aww.
I had a cinema date with my friend and former Made In Chelsea lass, Ashley James as we attended the RoboCop premiere at The IMAX in London. I spent the day filming YouTube videos for my YouTube channel and deciding what to wear. I opted for a Torn by Ronny Kobo dress (one of my favourite American designers at the moment) and Ashley went for an Amanda Wakely piece. Here we are, gracing the blue carpet, looking at two completely different cameras like proper pros.
Obviously I finished my popcorn way before the film had even started but despite that (and not wanting to reveal too much for you in case you want to go see it) I can exclusively reveal that RoboCop is a decent movie (but Iâ€™d wait for DVD if I was you). Yes. That is all youâ€™re getting out of me.
In other news, I headed to BAFTA HQ to film for the BBC3 pre-BAFTA show last week to share some of my favourite movie moments of 2013 amongst other things of course (chatterbox). It should be a cracking show as it features the likes of Colin Farrell, Emma Thompson, Erin Oâ€™Connor and little old me.
So book yourself a romantic date with the telly at 8:30pm this Sunday. It wonâ€™t stand you up.
Until the next time, it’s a tarrah for now from me,
