I love that Ellen gave out pizza at the Oscars…

Hey guys,

 

I hope you are having a good week so far.  I have been quite busy this week, so have been trying to get my flat in order so when I come back it’s all peaceful and relaxing. I have been investing in a lot of candles, I have recently found a brand called Milana – I love their Drive In Romance candle!

 

Last night I watched the Oscars (was too late to watch it live). I thought they were amazing and Ellen DeGeneres made them so entertaining. I loved the fact she gave all the stars pizza (quite interesting to see who ate it and who didn’t!) and of course Jennifer Lawrence tucked into a piece – she is great and not afraid to be herself! She looked beautiful on the night in her red Dior gown and of course fell over on the red carpet!

My best Oscar moments

-       The famous Selfie

-       Meryl Streep dancing with Pharrell

-       The pizza

Worst Oscar Moment

-       The look on Leonardo DiCaprio’s face when he didn’t win, and the fact he didn’t win – heartbreaking!

 

Outfit of the week: I attended the PETA Party at Mahiki and wore an outfit by AQAQ. It was a great party for an even better cause!

Training must-haves: Reebok ZQuick TR Trainers I have been wearing them whilst training and they are great. The shoes are light and supportive and perfect for both gym and park!

Brand of the week: Wilby – the brand have created a range of vegan bags. The brand is committed to creating cruelty free clutches that are certified with the Vegetarian Society.

 

At the moment I am loving Simple’s Radiance Brightening range, especially the moisturizer, which is perfect to give you skin a bit of glow.

Until next week,

‘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!
lucy-1
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.

l1

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!

l3

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.

lucy-1

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!

Getting in shape and getting my hair done!

Hey guys,
I hope you are all well this week. I have a seriously bad chest infection so I am on penicillin antibiotics to clear it up – I blame England’s weather. So far this week I have been housebound, but I am kick starting my fitness and eating regime to mainly be healthy and also to get in shape. I have started to train with Richard Callender, it is early days yet, but I am really enjoying it already, it’s bringing out my competitive side and can’t wait to see the results. #strongnotskinny
To accompany the training regime I am going to try and eat healthily. I have bought almond milk and gluten free foods and lots of fruit and veg. At the moment I love Lizi’s original granola,  it’s amazing with natural yogurt and fruit. Breakfast is by far my favorite meal as you can have so much variety – I am a bit stuck sometimes though as I don’t like it to get too repetitive. Tweet me your pictures to help give me some inspiration!

I got my hair done the other day at Michael Van Clarke in Marylebone and was really pleased with the results. The salon is all about hair care and making sure your hair is looked after the best is can be to avoid breakage and damage. I really like their methods and learnt a lot about the products on the market today that are slightly misleading… And walked away with their great leave-in treatment. I really recommend going there if your hair is damaged or you struggling to grow  it or  just want a relaxing hair salon experience.

Today I’ve been promoting a PETA anti-fur advert on Chelsea Bridge – I’ll give you all the details next week!
Until next time

Lucy Watson blog: Kate Moss and Keira Knightley

Hi guys,

I hope you are all having a good week so far. I am finally back to normal sleeping hours after a week of the WORST jet lag. I have been having a relatively relaxed week, doing chores and admin things and catching up with friends along with a few events here and there.

On Thursday my friend Hannah and I attended the Kate Moss exhibition at the Imitate Modern. Hannah is such a big fan of her work, so I knew it would be something she would like to go to. It is crazy to think how long she has been a model and the fact that she is still doing huge campaigns at 40 is an achievement respected among most! I’m not sure if she is the best role model but she has definitely had an admirable career.

 
lucy-1
It was so interesting to see the photographs of her work from when she started to now.

To the event I wore trousers and a jacket from Bershka, baggy t–shirt, United Nude shoes and a vintage Chanel bag from Vintage Heirloom.

My Monday nights are slightly less hectic these days without MIC airing so I went to the Jack Ryan premiere with my sister. I love Keira Knightley and Chris Pine is very attractive in the whole action genre role — the acting of course did not disappoint.

I wore a black dress with lace detail from All Saints, black buckle boot heels from Office, silver ear cuff from Topshop and finished off my look with dark eye make up and my hair swept to one side.

lucy-e

As it is so cold, it’s important to protect your lips, at the moment my must have is Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips – perfect for when you’re on the go as it also adds a natural tint of colour.

Anyway that’s all for this week. Make sure you wrap up kids, just cos the sun shines now and then don’t mean it’s gonna be any less chilly for the bones!

‘I’m reunited with my bestie’

Hey Guys,

This week I am trying to recover from jet lag, so far its not going well. I get up at 3am – 5am wide awake. The upside is it means I can get more things done!

I am glad to be back in England, as I have finally been reunited with Digby – he was staying at my mum’s and now is very well behaved, almost a different dog. It’s so nice to have my bestie back.

Last night I appeared on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side… It’s always fun to be on the panel and discuss what is going on in the house. I have been catching up since coming back, and I am sure some of you saw I am not the biggest fan of Lee! This year seems to be a very good mix of people, great entertainment. Of course I am rooting for Ollie, he is such a nice guy and deserves to do well. On the show I went for a monochrome look wearing a black blazer from Bershka, black jeans from Zara and shoes from Dune. My necklace and ring are from my brand Creature that will be launching soon.

This week I am excited to attend the premiere of Girls season 3. I think it’s such a great show and I love the fact its about a group of girls finding their way in NYC, its like a younger version of Sex and the City. A lot of the qualities in the characters resemble those of my friends, so it makes it even funnier.

 

lucy-2

At the moment I cant get enough of the Nails Inc. Gel Effect polish, it’s the perfect quick fix when you don’t have time to get shellac done. My favourite has to be Kensington High Street, the deep red is a good colour for nights out and goes with a lot of my wardrobe as I mainly wear dark or plain colours.

My lunch with Stephanie Pratt

Hey guys,

I hope you are all having a good week so far, I’ve been getting a lot of tweets from people who are sad the show is now over for the series! It is a shame but we’ll be back before you know it.

As mentioned I decided I needed a break for the UK and to go somewhere hot and sunny – Los Angeles! I am still here and having such a great time, the weather is amazing (wish it was like this in England). I have a few friends out here so have been catching up with them.

Yesterday, I went to the beach and chilled there until sunset, which was beautiful. I love the fact you can be in a city, but also be so close the beach. I have met some really cool people out here and am probably gonna struggle a bit fitting back in to my routine in London. The nearest thing I have to a beach there is the Thames.

As I am out here I wanted to also see Stephanie (Pratt). Once all the initial drama on the show passed, we got on well, contrary to a few articles that were released at the time. She’s a really sweet girl and we are similar in a lot of ways. I found out from her yesterday that she has also done work with PETA, which I think is so great. She took me for Lunch in Malibu and it was pretty amazing to eat whilst watching dolphins dance about in the sea in front of us. She also took me shopping briefly – biiig mistake. The shops here are incredible and I wanted to buy everything. Spent a lot.

As it’s the new year I have decided to try a few new products that I didn’t get round to trying in 2013! I have just started using Moroccan oil hair products. My hair got pretty wrecked by some micro bond extensions (if you have fine hair, don’t get them. Seriously) and so far the products have really helped my hair get back to its healthy state. And they smell amazing.
My brand of the week is Boohoo – love their Floral Playsuit that I wore to lunch with Stephanie!

Until next week

‘I love Jamie as a friend’

Hey guys,

I hope you all watched the end of season show with Rick Edwards on Monday night. A lot has happened since the last episode of the show so it was good to catch everyone up.

lucy-1
Obviously due to recent articles in the press I was getting a lot of tweets telling me Jamie had cheated on me. Which is sweet as it’s nice to know people are looking out for me but me and Jamie have never been a couple because I don’t feel ready to commit. I can understand where he was coming from when he said he cant wait around for me, but as I said a week is not very long to leave it if you are madly in love with someone. Obviously I love him as a friend and I always will, but in relationship terms I can’t trust him and seeing him gallivanting with girls in Miami a week later cemented my worries! It was so surprising that Spencer agreed with me about the fact that Jamie wouldn’t have behaved that way in Miami if he had feelings for me; I appreciated having someone see my point of view.
lucy-2
It has been so nice to have some time off over Christmas. As I mentioned before, I spent it down in Devon with my mum and although the weather was terrible, it was a great day full of eating, eating and more eating. I much prefer giving presents and watching reactions than receiving them as I am so privileged with what I have…
I’m off to L.A. today — I’ve never been before but will definitely keep you all updated on the goings on… Who knows what could happen! I left Digby in Devon so my mum could look after him while I’m away. It’s the first time we’ve been apart for this long and I’m seriously struggling! I know it sounds pathetic but he is like my bezzie mate as he’s with me 24/7. We’ve face-timed a few times and I’m glad he’s with my mum who he loves rather than in a kennel.
I hope you all had a good NYE.
