My week with Kim Cattrall, Rebecca Adlington and Stooshie

aj1
This week I headed to Liverpool to host the Collective Honours Awards with former Xtra Factor presenter and stand up comedian, Matt Richardson. The awards ceremony was organised by arts and style magazine, The Collective and attended by the cast of Hollyoaks including mega babes Georgie Porter and Stephanie Davis as well as the gorgeous former TOWIE star Charlie King. It was lovely to be part of such a great show and eat some proper gravy but it was even better to present Sex And The City star Kim Cattrall with the International Arts Icon award. She posed for the cameras, gushed about being back in her city of birth, and joked about following a raffle. Arh Cattrall, I love you but… I love me more.

Speaking of love, I adore strong, independent women and this week I was in a room full of them at the Sunday Times & Sky Sports Women of the Year Awards which left me feeling more motivated than ever! Judy Murray, Victoria Pendleton and Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson were just a handful of sassy women there to make me feel tip top, not to mention the inspiring stories from athletes. All the winners and nominees are a tribute to hard work, talent, total dedication and women. Girl power! Chatting to the lovely and very funny Rebecca Adlington made me feel as though I should nip down to my local swimming baths, dive into the deep end and get fit in true, splashing style. I should probably learn to swim first though so… arm bands at the ready.

There was also a swanky Sony Xperia party that I went to which had great music, MIC stars, synchronised swimmers and I got to catch up with the sexy girl group, Stooshie.

It’s no wonder I’m a bit sleepy today. Join me back here next week when I’ll have more energy and follow my adventures on Twitter and Instagram.
Tarrah for now!

Band of Skulls and Motel Rocks Rocking the Party

aj1
This week I attended fashion retailer the Motel Rocks Christmas party (Yep, that’s right, I dropped the ‘C’ bomb). The great thing about Christmas parties is not only the merry songs and festive nibbles, but it’s the one time of year that I get to dress unashamedly like a disco ball!
As we’re still in November, I thought I’d play down my love for sequins-on-sequins by wearing a leather waistcoat over my embellished frock. I shook my sparkly shimmy to the old school sounds of Ja Rule and TLC to Zara Martin’s amazing DJ set and left the party knowing that Motel Rocks the party! Check out my website for some hot as hell party looks.

Carrying on the rock theme, I’m not usually a Friday night gig-goer but I just couldn’t resist seeing Band of Skulls at Hammersmith Apollo. With big sounds throughout, their bluesy Americana rock had me head banging and occasionally dipping my toes into the mosh pit.
The stomping sounds of Sweet Sour and Hoochie Coochie got the crowd swaying (drunkenly) in unison and flinging pints of cider all over the place (including in my hair, eek!). I was rocked to the core and had a blast even if it was a little sweaty at times.

Things have been heating up this week in The Training Room - the one stop shop to learn about all things fitness, health and vitality. To get me in the zone I’ve been wearing trainers and Lycra way more than usual and as it’s such an interesting course. I’ll be sharing all my fitness and nutrition discoveries with you on my website and YouTube channel so make sure you check it out.
Until next week, tarrah!

Keeping Up with The Kardashians

aj1

Kim and Khloé Kardashian graced our humble shores for the UK Hairfinity launch at Il Bottaccio this week. There was a plethora of famous faces including Marvin and Rochelle Hulmes, Neon Jungle and Nick Grimshaw who DJ’ed at the event too. Also keeping up with the Kardashians were Arielle Free, Charlotte De Carle, Ashley James, Matt Richardson and Lilah Parsons and I must say, everyone was on top form! There was fizz, tubs of Hairfinity vitamin tablets everywhere and a much talked about Kim Kardashian lookalike. Sadly I didn’t get a picture of Kim’s doppleganger but I did get a picture with the real deal. Thank goodness I didn’t have a nip slip in this royal blue dress. BTW, Kim said she really likes my shoes so I’m practically part of the family right?

Another fun soirée was Tatler’s Little Black Book launch party at Home House, London. I went with my friend Arielle Free so as well as tasty food, lovely drinks and amazing music, there was also lots of laughs because Arielle (a bit like me) is completely off her rocker. We were equally amused that on one of the walls in the main rooms is a giant photograph of Dr Dre amply positioned in between President Obama and Bill Clinton. We also saw Ricky from Eastenders looking rather dapper with even better looking mates. Did we bellow out “Ricky!” in a Bianca-esque manner to the man that is not actually called Ricky in real life?! Course we did! We’re classy like that and I had a shiny on to prove it.

In other news, as I love health and fitness, working out regularly, I’m giving my brain a workout too at The Training Room. Follow my fitness journey on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube as I literally go back to school for the next 6 weeks.
For now though, tarrah!

Seeing Stars at Interstellar Premiere and One Direction’s Niall at Halloween Bash

aj3
Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Matthew McConaughey braced the wet great, British weather to attend the premiere for space movie Interstellar this week and so did I! It was worth getting my hair wet to see Hathaway looking beautiful and legendary actor Michael Caine in real life. I watched the film whilst scoffing popcorn behind Union J and thanks to the gigantic screen, their quiffs didn’t get in the way. Good job, as the film was gripping, bold and (at just under 3 hours long), bum-numbing. All of my favourite scenes are spoilers so just brace your derrière and see it for yourself. Check out what I wore to grace the blue carpet on the fashion page on my website.

From one dressy affair to another, I dusted down my leotard and staggered in a zombie like fashion to a spooky soiree at Gilgamesh, London, dressed as The Black Swan to celebrate Halloween. The party featured blood red cocktails, spine chilling costumes and the most sinful champagne. Celeb spot of the night? Niall from One Direction dressed as a Zombie footballer. Spooky! There were performers and the music was a devilish delight. The next day looked well scary but Sunday came good as I did a fitness photo shoot for SportSylist.com.

SportStylist.com is a platform for women to receive style updates on sportswear and shop for sports products and as a self confessed fitness freak, I’m chuffed to be a part of their website relaunch. I got to hang out with strong, inspirational woman all day, eye up and wear some of the best active wear and as a fitness shoot it was all “Lights. Camera. Annnnd LEAP” which was right up my street. Here’s a behind the scene sneaky peak.
