‘How I spent my birthday’

Hi everyone,
Hope you are having a good week so far. Last week was my birthday. It was a day full of delicious food and fun — I was treated to lunch at Harrods with my mum and sister and enjoyed a glass of champers with my favourite, truffle macaroni cheese. In the evening I celebrated at The Phene Pub with my nearest and dearest, including my favourite – Stevie Johnson – although he did come empty handed… It was a great evening filled with champagne, canapés and of course cake from the delicious Hummingbird Bakery! Which, in my tipsy state, I ended up giving to the staff when we left. I regretted this the next day!

The Wednesday before my birthday I had a really exciting shoot that I can’t wait to share with you all. Throughout the day I wore jewellery from my own brand Creature (launching next week). I loved my make-up on the day done by Natacha Schmitt, she used Smashbox make-up which is cruelty free,.I love their eye shadows – they are great for a smoky eye!
I cant wait for… Shrove Tuesday! I love pancakes and lived off them when I was growing up. Its best to make them, so I will show you some images next week of my creations. I learnt how to make them from scratch when I was just six years old. My mum used to make them for me every morning before school. My favourite toppings are fresh lemon and sugar, golden syrup and butter and last but not least – strawberries and whipped cream. I really want to get some more inspiration – so please tweet me your topping ideas… @imlucywatson.

My product of the week is Palmers Cocoa Butter Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion – I’ve always used the original cream moisturiser, but this one is easier to apply, especially when you are in a hurry, which I am most of the time.
Favourite moment from this week? My friend Lucas bought Digby an American Apparel hoodie. I’m not really into dressing up my dog but he actually really likes his hoodie. He is particularly cocky when wearing it, but it cracks me up every time.

Take care,

I’m working on some secret projects… all will be revealed soon

Hey guys,

I hope you are all having productive weeks (ha ha why am I your teacher). I have had a busy week with lots of exciting projects in the mix that I wish I could share, but bear with me, all will be revealed soon… As well as projects I am also concentrating on my new jewellery line, Creature. The name sort of says it all, but of course the collection is based around animals and their unique features. The line has been in development for a long time but it looks like everything is finally coming together, and it will be launching very soon.

Finally the sun came out on Sunday so Binky and I spent the day together walking Digby and Scrumble and just having girl time – it’s always needed. We got a bit keen with the few rays of sun and put the roof down, surprisingly warm! We let the dogs run wild in Richmond Park, they were a muddy state by the end and I gave up on keeping my car clean. We had a lovely Sunday lunch and then headed to the pub to see some friends.

My new discovery of the week – vegetarian marshmallows! They are delicious and practically guilt free… well to me anyway, probably not to Richard my PT (ha ha, sorry Rich)! They have no added sugar, no gelatine and no dairy – perfect! I would definitely recommend!

Rainy days are better with… the new Walking Dead series, I’m obsessed! I haven’t watched this week’s episode yet as I’ve been so busy but I can’t wait.

Song of the week… the new Little Mix song Word Up. Binks and I were listening to it in the car and I had to shazam it, such a good upbeat song for when you’re driving.

Quote of the week… “Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be.” Quite deep but I think it’s right… So many people can feel pressured into fitting in with other people’s standards and really, everyone is different! We need to be otherwise it just gets boring and people become sheep.

Until next time,

Lucy xx

‘What I’m doing for Valentine’s Day’

Hey guys,

I hope you are having a good week so far, despite the awful weather! I can’t remember the last time England was sunny for more than a couple of hours – walking Digby has been a very damp experience on many occasions, but he loves it. Me on the other hand, not so much. But there is always a silver lining and I have recently got the new Sony Xperia phone that happens to be waterproof.

 Fashion Look from my Fashion section at www.lucy-watson.com

This week I am really looking forward to A New York Winter’s Tale premiere on Thursday. It is a love story starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay. As you all know I am not a big lover of Valentines Days, but I do love romance films and as the premiere doesn’t fall on Valentine’s Day I feel it’s ok!  Speaking of Valentine’s Day, it is fast approaching. I always feel like it is better not to go too over the top with gifts (men take note) but if you are struggling for gifts – flowers are always a safe bet, as well as cupcakes!

‘Seeing my nude billboard is weird…’

Hi guys,

This week has been pretty exciting for me, especially as I launched my new PETA campaign. I am passionate about building awareness of the cruelty behind fur and highlighting the fact that it is by no means glamorous. Faux fur is a really great alternative and much better for your conscience… Faux fur these days is gorgeous and soft. I am really happy that there is a billboard up outside West Brompton of the campaign – its quite daunting to think people will see it everyday, but if it gets the message across, I really don’t care. To the unveiling I wore faux leather trousers from Bank and a Miss Selfridge coat.

You may have seen me tweet about it but I have been working on the fashion section for my site Lucy-Watson.com, where I will be uploading outfits every few weeks for you all to see. I am pretty relaxed with my style, I tend to wear what I like, but there are a few others I look to for ideas. At the moment I am loving Kylie Jenner’s style, its really laid back and sort of grungy – she doesn’t wear too much colour. I enjoy giving people details on where to get my clothes as I am constantly getting questions about it on twitter.

At the moment I am loving all Champney’s products, especially the bath oil – it really helps you to relax!
