‘Dating is a minefield’

I’ve had a hectic couple of weeks! I went to Greece for a couple of days. It was a really last minute holiday, but I was lucky enough to have a few days off over the weekend, so I thought I should make the most of it. I also got to try out my new Figleaves swimwear. I went away with Stephanie, and we have a great couple of days, topping up our tans and relaxing on the beach. Even if it did rain most mornings…


I am going away over the summer, so I have had to leave Digby with my mum. I hate leaving him, but obviously he can’t travel with me. He has been enjoying his gifts from Precious Pets, so he is happy. My mum lives in the south of England and has dogs herself so he gets to play with them. Last time I went away, I tried to Skype him, but he got so confused and just ran upstairs, so I don’t think I’ll be doing that again!


I had the press day for the collection from Lipsy that I have modeled for this year. It was a great day at The Sanderson hotel, but I was so exhausted at the end of it. I went straight from there to the BT Sports Industry Awards in Battersea Park, as I was presenting an award with Vernon Kay. I was a little nervous beforehand, as I’ve never actually presented an award before, and I was scared that I might trip over on the stage. The room was full of some of the most incredible athletes, and at the beginning of the event, they showed a montage of the highlights from the past year. It showed some incredible talent in the British sporting world.


This week is very exciting for me as it marks the launch of my new book on the 22nd of May. I really wanted to create a handbook style book, that explains some of the difficult situations I have had to deal with navigating my way through the minefield of dating.  I didn’t want to preach about what I have learnt, but I wanted to put something together that allowed girls to relate, and hopefully if they can read it and learn from the mistakes I have made, then that’s a bonus! We have also included Snaptag videos. You can scan them with your smartphone and it takes you to a video of me giving make up and dating tips. I also explain some of the photos from each chapter.

Keep posted for next week, as I have some exciting news!
