My Birthday Bash with John Frieda

aj1

I’ve been enjoying the dizzying heights of London this week as I headed up not one but two towers. John Frieda had a party to mark the launch of their new hair products at the OXO Tower rooftop which boast stunning views across the River Thames and the City of London and the scenery was great inside too. Former MIC star Millie Mackintosh looked beautiful in white, Pixie Geldof was playing music and the champagne and canapés were a visual and tasty delight. I wore a polka dot jumpsuit which sent other party goers potty for dotty.

This weekend I celebrated my birthday. For me birthdays are a time to crack open the champagne and spend some quality time with my bezzies. This year, I kicked off the celebrations at The Clock Tower in Kings Cross St Pancras. I stayed for the night in this privately owned residential property. As it’s name discreetly gives away, it’s a blooming clock tower! So had wondrous view of north london. I got a bit over-excited at the sight of this bath that overlooked the floor to ceiling bookcases. I had a fairy tale night!

Following my chilled out night, I ramped things up a notch by celebrating like a 16 year old on her way to a prom. I hired a stretch Jeep limousine, filled with balloons, bubbles and a music playlist that would give any high school disco a run for it’s money. My best buddies and I spent the evening criss-crossing London, pretending we were VIPs but actually acting like teenagers. If anyone in London happened to see me belting the Backstreet Boys and Missy Elliot out of the sunroof on Saturday night, I can only apologise!

To round off my week and kick start the next I collaborated with YouTube fitness expert Scola Dondo on a dance workout. Check out my YouTube channel for my (hliarious) attempt at an afrobeats workout and a few healthy breakfast ideas too.

Catch you next week!

Welcome to my blog!

Hello my lovely readers!

I’m super excited to be launching my HELLO! Online blog and I hope you will enjoy reading about my fun and busy life…

CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER
The launch of CBB is a thing of the past and I am loving the cast. Les and Janice Battersby from my favourite soap Coronation Street are in, along with a guy I secretly had a crush on when I was younger, Dustin Diamond AKA Screech from Saved by the Bell. I think it was his curly hair that did it. Curls gets the girls! (Unfortunately Dustin now has a shaved head but I still can’t wait to see him in the house).

FITNESS
I like to call myself a fitness fanatic as I enjoy going to gym classes and leading an active lifestyle but with the launch of Celebrity Big Brother this week I’ve been rushed off my feet. As a result I’ve skipped the gym and done what I call, ‘The 100 Workout’ each morning. It consists of 40 jumping jacks followed by 30 crunches, 20 squats and then 10 push ups. That’s literally it. It takes less than 10 minutes and I read on @justenejaros Instagram that it burns 100 calories. Happy days!

FOOD
My diet is also really important to me, but when I’m on the go all the time trying to eat healthy can be hard. My energy levels have to be high so I’ve been trying this lovely little detox called Nosh. It sounds funny but it’s great. They tailor make a diet plan for you and deliver it straight to your door each day ready to eat. And it’s delicious. Their fresh fruit smoothies are the best but their website shows the full range – noshdetox.com.

Here’s a quick cold pasta salad I love when I’m not on a detox: olives, tortellini, Parma ham, rocket and a drizzle of fresh lemon juice. Bung it all together and voila! You’ve got the perfect, healthy, quick dish. Anything for an easy life, eh?!

BOOKWORM
When I’m travelling around for events I always like to keep myself busy with either a good book or my favourite tunes on my iPod.
I’m currently reading Birdsong by Sebastian Folks. My boyfriend bought it me it yonks ago but I’ve only just got into it and so far so good. As he’s a primary school teacher, I’m hoping he gives me a gold star when I’ve completed it.

Hope you have all enjoyed a great bank holiday weekend – here’s to a great 4 day week and see you next week

AJ xx
