Celebrating with friends, Toning for the summer, Bikinis and Wicked!
Well hello there readers, I hope you are fine and have had an amazing week?
I’ve had a pretty creative week and have been working on some fabulous designs for Ss15 . I cannot wait for them to be produce! I am using some great metallic lathers throughout the collection, it’s going to be amazing! Anyone wearing ‘Kelly Simpkin’ will shimmer in the sunshine next spring/summer. My inspiratin for the collection is the ‘sea’ and it’s going to dazzle! As well as working on my new collection I have been finalising some accessories for AW14 – I absolutely cannot wait for them to be placed in magazines for you to see! I am so proud and excited! WATCH THIS SPACE!
On Saturday evening we were at the Soho Sanctum hotel celebrating the birthday of our friend, Jason Gale. We had such a great time and caught up with most of the gang from the Jump!
Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman attended.
Anthea Turner also attended.

Last night Nicky and I were treated to see the show WICKED by my aunt and uncle. Along we went, to the Apollo theatre in Victoria, with my cousins, Abby and Elle, and watched the show. Ive seen the Wizard of Oz but never before Wicked – I didn’t even know the story. What a show it was, absolutely fantastic! The set, the music, the lights and not to mention the actors – WOW. Hats off to Willemihn Verkaik and Savannah Stevenson – they were both brilliant! My mum is a huge Wizard of Oz fan so I know she would love this show, I must take her to see it! I am not sure if i’ve even even been to the Apollo before? Its such an amazing theatre, opened in 1930 as a cinema originally. I adore its art deco design. No wonder its now a grade 2 listed building!

I’ve been trying to get a little more fit this past week and have been swimming quite a few times. I feel that with swimming you can achieve quite a lot in a short space of time. In half an hour I can swim a good number of lengths, my heart rate is increased and I feel refreshed. I like to finish off with a steam to clear my head and make my skin super soft. I think its so important to take time out from ones busy schedule and relax. With swimming I really find that I can do this.
One of the reasons that I am trying to tone up and get fit is that I have a holiday coming up. I actually cannot wait to get my skin in the sun, lay on a beach and do not very much for 2 weeks! I am counting down the days! I would love to get a few new bikinis to take with me. I have looked around the stores but it still seems to be a little early and no where is stocking them just yet. Therefore I have taken my search online. Below, in kelly’s Collectables, I have listed a few of the treasures that I have found!
Kelly’s Collectables – this week I am searching Bikinis! For me, the triangle shape is the most flattering and tends to work on all shapes and sizes.
PilyQ Smocked triangle bikini £145 lilylola.com
Navy 3D embellished Bikini £29 riverisland.com
Bright graphic print lattice bikini from £34 asos.com
(Cute but not sure about all those straps – tan lines?!!)
I hope you’ve enjoyed the read this week, must dash as i’m off to my factory for a fitting and to look at some new patterns of my latest designs! Until next time,
