Why why why Delilah are you so good?

aj1
What better way to start your week than by watching The Ting Tings, Indiana and my new favourite, Bipolar Sunshine all performing at the Ace Hotel. This was a very special night to kick start the Oxjam festival, which sees over 700 gigs playing up and down the country. The event was hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Hue Stephens and I was jamming out to BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter Clara Amfo who was DJing. There was even a wall dedicated to Grace Jones in there. Dream!

Now why why why Delilah are you so good? I watched Delilah perform at Gilgamesh and she was singing so close to me that I’d argue she was personally serenading me. All hail to her. I got that musical treat on her birthday. I can’t wait till mine in… 5 months.
aj to add
I also attended the Sony Xperia event at Aqua, where Mollie King of the Saturdays DJ’d, Rough Copy swung by and Kiss Radio presenter Melvin Odoom was there too. He was once my TV husband. It was a great night with delicious blue WKD’s or at least that’s what I thought. Turns out it was blue champagne. Oh I’ve changed.

All that and I’m still training for my half marathon for Tommy’s charity. Keep an eye on my blog and YouTube channel for emergency training tips. I’ll make like Forrest Gump and run into you next week. Tarrah!

Closing LFW in style

aj1
After a busy week of fashion shows and luxury accessories, menswear brand Velsoir showcased their bespoke collection at new London members club the Library to close LFW in style.  With music from DJ crew It’s Rude to Stare and a host of beautiful people, they made sure that LFW was gone but not forgotten.

In other news, it’s time for me to get the running bug as in just three weeks, I will be panting and sweating for over 13 miles during the Royal Parks Half Marathon.  I’ll be sprinting for Tommy’s charity, which funds research into  pregnancy complications so if you fancy cheering me along, heckling or finding out more about this wonderful charity then please check out, www.tommys.org.

If you’re taking part in the run and  have done no or very minimal training then you may be panicking but chill out! On my website fitness page I’ll be sharing top, last minute training tips in the lead up to the big jog.

And on that healthy note I’m off to my yoga class. Namaste!

No rest for the wicked during LFW

aj1

I had an active yet relaxing few days on the Channel Islands thanks to Nike. Cave climbing, trail running and downward dogs, you name it, I did it. I got to design my very own Nike trainers with London based illustrator Hattie Stewart and there was even a silent disco workout class courtesy of Barry’s Bootcamp. Genius!
aj2
Some of British Athletics leading ladies, (namely Dina Asher Smith, Laura Weightman, Shona Richards and Perri Shakes- Drayton) were on hand not only to train with us but to share inspiring stories about the dedication they have to their sport, to their team and (when competing) to their country. I got home feeling rejuvenated, reinvigorated and ready for London Fashion Week.

aj3
When the clock struck “LFW” I checked out the Gyunel and PPQ shows amongst others and attended LuLu Guinness’s Perspective party, where I saw her beautiful collection of lippy bags. I caught up with Lulu and she told me I had a nice headband… I’m never taking it off now. Late night but no rest for the wicked as Sunday saw me up bright and early to take part in Run To The Beat.
aj4
Yep, a 10K run to music with Fitness First and the likes of Nick Grimshaw and Sigma on hand to DJ and give people like me the extra oomph to cross that finish line.
What a week! Let me know what you’ve been up to on Twitter and Instagram. Until next time, cheerio!

Meeting Rita Ora and seeing Kasabian rock the stage

aj1
As if she didn’t do enough, Rita Ora has only gone and released a collaborative collection with Adidas Originals and I went to the launch party. Nick Grimshaw, Henry Holland, Daisy Lowe, Vas Morgan and little ol’
was there to check out the bright, bold collection and dance the night away.
aj2
Then it was onto the iTunes festival at the Roundhouse where I witnessed Kasabian take their rock star swagger on stage to play 27 (yes, 27) songs. Their longest concert to mark their 10th anniversary, playing all their greatest hits. It’s always amazing to see people better than ever after a decade. Happy Anniversary Kasabian!
aj3
And on that loving note I say, tarrah for now. See you next week.

Hanging with Clean Bandit and Russell Kane in Ibiza

aj2
Hello!
After a jam packed 6 weeks of travelling around Europe and America with Malibu Rum to film a series of YouTube videos for their #bestsummerever project, it’s now time to say farewell to endless, fun activities, glorious weather, sun cream and flip-flops. Yep, I fly back to London today and what a great send off this week has been.
aj5
I’ve paddle boarded, watched beautiful sunsets and seen a whole wonder world of marine life whilst snorkelling in Ibiza.
aj1
I was reunited with my pals model Ashley James and comedian Russell Kane to dance to Ella Eyre, Clean Bandit and Fatboy Slim at Ibiza Rocks and I even raved to an exclusive DJ set from Idris Elba at Pikes Hotel.
aj4
Needless to say I’m still giddy with excitement thinking about all the amazing things I’ve done. You can watch it all on the Malibu Rum YouTube channel. Now bring on the excess luggage fee. I’m coming home!
