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.

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.

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.

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.

‘I didn’t know how to react to Jamie’s surprise’

Hi Guys,

I hope you all enjoyed the show on Tuesday  night; it was quite a finale to the season! Parts of it were hard to watch back with all the fighting – especially with Victoria. As I mentioned on Twitter I regret judging her on how she looked as it’s not kind, but I was trying to stick up for myself and Cheska. Everyone knows that Cheska’s weight is one of her major insecurities and Victoria was quick to target it.

 

lucy-jamie

Other than all the bitchiness it was such a Christmassy episode and was so nice to spend time with everyone all together. It was a sad time though as I was moving out of the flat with Stevie. It was hard to leave as we had a lot of fun together, but sometimes it’s good to have your own space. I personally prefer living by myself and my new flat is gorgeous. I had all the interiors done recently by an amazing designer.

I was so shocked when I saw Jamie’s surprise, it was so sweet and I didn’t really know how to react, I burst out laughing and couldn’t stop. Plus everyone was watching so it was slightly awkward. I realised how much I missed him when we weren’t talking (for two and a half weeks) and it really upset me not having him in my life. We both love each other and are really great friends. Watch the studio show on Monday and expect some fireworks between Jamie and I.

Things I loved this week:

- Louise’s pony, so small!
- Spencer pretending he could ride. He couldn’t even trot. Hilarious to witness though.
- me and Louise actually did look like boys in our outfits.
- Louise mistaking her leggings for a scarf “sweeeet”. Also when Andy said he got her a present. “Why?”
- Jamie and Proudlock’s tree! So shkinny!
- Francis on Skype. Haha he’s so unique.
- Jamie shopping by himself
- Alex’s speech about the seating plan
- Jamie confronting Spencer about seeing him and I together. His little face when he found out we were shopping for him!
- Spencer’s fist pump when me and Jamie were kissing in the carriage
Check back next week to see what I thought of the studio show…

‘The situation with Jamie is difficult’

Hi guys,
I hope you all enjoyed the show on Monday night! Only one more left to go now and it’s a good one, lots of Christmas spirit about!
As Binky’s friend it was quite hard to watch, as it must be slightly difficult for her to know that Alex hasn’t loved anyone since Phoebe, but at least he was honest.;lucy-real
It was quite funny to see Jamie doing his washing at my house; he was clearly very confused about how to use the machine!
The whole situation with him is difficult as I don’t want to give him mixed signals but at the same time I’m constantly battling with my own confusing emotions.
I think it was right for me not to go to Binky’s for supper, as we need our space and to define some boundaries. You can’t have someone that close to you tell you they love you and then carry on normally as if nothing has happened.
Things I loved this week:
  • Jamie being a creep and staring at pictures of me.
  • The boys’ poker faces. Aha!
  • Andy’s eyebrows… They’ve taken over from the nostrils? Very emotive.
  • Phoebe to Fran: “I don’t like you”. She has a way with words that one… Cracked me up!
  • Watching the episode and finding out that Jamie’s washing machine was actually working. I knew it!
  • The Icelandic band Ásgeir, they’re really good! I didn’t think I would like their music.
  • Jamie saying I didn’t know how to dance. Haha… Haha… What.
  • Proudlock greeting me with “whatsup whatsup whatsup y’all”. Such a G.
  • Me sitting at home alone kissing my dog whilst my friends are down the road having a dinner party. Mrs Cool.

 Excited to Launch my new Jewellery range Creature next year

 

Last week I went to the Anchorman 2 premiere. I have to admit I couldn’t really remember what happened in the first film, but the second film was hilarious! Will Ferrell is so funny, but I have to say Brick is my favorite character; he is so awkward and very honest! To the premiere I wore a Lipsy skirt, Dorothy Perkins cami and blazer and Dune shoes, all on my Rufflr page. http://bit.ly/1kRrW0s

 

Christmas is coming up and it is always hard to buy presents – especially for girls! So here’s a small gift guide to help the boys along.

Until next week…

‘I saw a different side to Phoebe in South Africa’

Hey guys,

I hope you all enjoyed the South Africa ep last night! It was such an amazing trip, seeing all the animals in their natural surrounding was incredible, but also quite scary as you can get so close. We soon realised though that the animals were a lot more scared of us than we were of them and decided to have a picnic by their watering hole, relaxed as ever. As you all know I am an animal lover so I was in my element.

I’m not going to lie — I wasn’t too happy when Phoebe turned up at the airport as we didn’t exactly get along, but we have put our differences to one side and we get along okay now. There wasn’t really any reason for us to have so much hatred towards each other and I saw a different side to Phoebe in South Africa. She too loves animals and she was a lot more warm and approachable to be around.

lucy-blog-2

 

It was quite hard to be in South Africa with both Spencer and Jamie as I felt like one or the other were speculating when I spent time with one or the other. I found that if I was alone with Jamie Spencer would come over and vice versa. As someone that enjoys their personal space and is quite independent I found it quite invasive. Luckily back at the lodge I had my own suite (which was gorgeous) and it had a lock so I could just go in there at night and bolt the door.

It’s really hard because I love being friends with Jamie and although he’s convinced he’s in love with me, I’m not so sure. Yes I am skeptical as it is, but I think if he had me it would be a different story…. Who knows. We care very much about each other and he is extremely important to me.

 

lucy-blog-1

 

Things I loved this week:

* Firstly just everything about Jembisa (the lodge) because it is the best place ever.
* Jamie and Alex’s excited “body bump” at the airport.
* Sam taking the fact that Fran is in the music industry as a reason to give her a CD with a naked picture of him on the front…. O….K!
* Alex referring to Spencer as Attenborough… The facts were overwhelming.
* The bit where we were cautiously walking towards the giraffe. I don’t think people actually grasp how surreal that was, a wild giraffe (male) that was grazing and we walked over to it with no protection. So exciting though.
* Cheska standing up for herself (and I) whilst Victoria was being her usual bitchy self.
* The South African choir. I love all their songs. “Hello my friend, hello my friend.”
* Andy’s reaction when Vita says she only eats olives at dinner, haha… unusual.

 

Beauty tip of the week:

I went shopping with my mum to find a new lipstick. I think it is a really great idea to buy a colour not too dissimilar from your own natural lip colour, or slightly brighter. It gives you a good colour to wear day to day, and keeps your lips glowing and moisturised throughout the day without looking “too much”. I bought “Rouge Dior nude 663″.

Speak soon.

‘It’s hard to be friends with an ex’

Hey guys,

I hope you all enjoyed this week’s show! This episode had quite a lot of funny bits… Especially that rap that Stevie performed – who would have thought he had it in him! It was so nice to welcome Poppy to the show, you could see that Stevie was really happy, apart from when I mentioned his pyjamas – he looked a little embarrassed. He knows it’s only playful… Although watching back I may have been a tad harsh with my jokes! Poppy didn’t look too impressed.

It was quite a surprise when Spencer walked into the salon, I mean I was just getting my hair done which i find quite relaxing! I meant it when I said that I don’t hate Spencer, it takes too much time and effort to constantly hate someone and I have moved on. That doesn’t mean friendship is on the cards – I have a close knit group of friends, all that are very loyal and close to me. I think it is hard to be friends with an ex, sometimes impossible, especially when the relationship ended in a similar manner to the way ours did (badly).

Things I loved this week:

  • Stevie and Andy’s impressions of me… I can agree, they were spot on. Those boys know me so well!
  • Jamie telling Stevie to “tuc tuc it” with poppy. Pretty sure he means those bike things but is that really the way to a woman’s heart? Personally find the experience quite frightening.
  • Stevie and Poppy in general. Just aw.
  • Sam trying to undo Fran’s coat… Hahaha… What. And the mistletoe, I can’t.
  • Louise taking the piss out of Sam. She showed her jokes side.
  • Stevie bringing out his inner ‘G’ … “badaboombadabing”

Winter Wonderland has just opened up and I’m so happyyyy!! It is the best time of year. I intend on going A LOT. I went with Proudlock on the opening day and went on some preeetty scary rides. and then with Jamie the other day. We spent around £100 on the games where you throw things to win a bear because I really wanted a big bear. Managed to get a bear but it wasn’t quite what I meant… Still cute though!

Christmas shopping… I don’t know if anyone else has started theirs yet but I went to Westfield the other day with my sister. I was thinking about Christmas the other day and how I’m going to be so upset when I don’t get a stocking anymore (a day I wish never comes). And then I realised my mum doesn’t get one! She lives by herself in Devon and hasn’t had a stocking for years. This saddened me. So me and my sister bought her one and have filled it with magnificent gifts. Take note guys; the parents deserve stockings too. P.S. In case you’re wondering about my Dad, I’m pretty sure my stepmum buys him one each year so fear not!

Anyway hope you enjoyed reading and make sure you all behave this week. Santa is watching. Xx

 

 

‘I need some time just to be on my own’

Hey Guys,

I hope you all enjoyed the show on Monday night. It was so funny to see Stevie bonding with Digby in Mungo & Maud at the start. The sling looked hilarious on him, but he pulled it off! He loves Digby more than he lets on!

The questions I was asked about Spencer and Jamie in Monday’s episode were completely different and it was disappointing to see some people tweeting me calling me a liar. If Spencer had never cheated on me we would not have broken up, so without any cheating involved of course I would have chosen him, I wanted that relationship to work. I would pick Jamie now as after everything that has happened, I would never get back with Spencer. But I am glad Jamie and I decided to just be friends for the moment, I need some time just to be on my own and sometimes his behaviour doesn’t allow me to trust him whole heartedly.

Things I loved this week:

Binky referring to her and Alex sleeping together as “holding hands”.

Alex and Jamie trying to be me, prancing around in their underwear.

The psychotherapists reaction to when Spencer said he gets it wrong sometimes: “Yes……… Yes.”

Stevie’s cute little hug for Andy at The Phene when he heard the bad news.

Proudlock making Jamie eat “The Rug”.

Francis painting poor Rosie naked!

Holmes and Watson coming together to interrogate Louise.

Sams poem to Fran… What happened there, eh?

On Friday the cast and I were on Alan Carr: Chatty Man. It is always so fun talking to Alan, he is hilarious and his questions are always different and really outside the box – it’s never your average interview! On the show I wore a skirt from Of The Realm, top from Miss Selfridge, blazer by Dorothy Perkins and cuffs by New Look. You can see the outfit on my Rufflr page www.rufflr.com/users/lucywatson.

I am excited to announce that my website is now live! Head to www.lucy-watson.com, to see pictures, news and fashion! I will try to upload new looks on the fashion page as much as possible so you guys can keep up with my latest looks according to season and I will include a variety of day and evening outfits : ).

Film of the week: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Jennifer Lawrence is such a bad ass and generally a really strong woman. I think she’s great. She doesn’t take herself too seriously and seems not to care too much about what people think. The second film is just as good as the first and has a really good twist – but I won’t spoil it for you! It’s a definite must-see.

This week my nails have been struggling from using shellac so often. For the last 6 months I have literally worn a colour for 10 days, had it removed, then reapplied a different colour for another 10 days. My nails haven’t had a chance to breath and they are extremely brittle now and keep breaking. Depressing. So I went and bought some beaut OPI colours and their Nail Envy Strengthener to use as a base and top coat. The ones I bought are in a pic below (lots of natural colours):

Love these OPI colours!

Love these OPI colours!

Yesterday I got my new car delivered. It’s really nice to be back behind a steering wheel as, since I got rid of my BMW six months ago, I have been getting taxis everywhere. I enjoy being in control of the music again haha and the speed…! Much prefer that then being driven around everywhere by other people. Independence is key.

Tweet me if you have any questions or if theres something you’d like to see more of in next weeks blog.

Ciao.

‘Monday night’s ep was quite awkward’

Hey guys,

You would have all seen me consult Andy and Louise, they are both my friends so of course I was going to give them advice. I always stick up for what I think is right and I felt that Louise ought to know what Andy had been up to as well seeing as he has given her such a hard time about the situation with “that guy”.

I hope you all enjoyed the show last night. It was quite awkward watching the scene with Binky where we argue, we watched it together and laughed it off. I know her really well and can tell when she is upset, but It was in no way meant to be patronising. Binky is beautiful and is a real catch, I just wish she believed it more. All I want for my friends and family is for them to be happy and it’s unfortunate we argued about a guy. The first and last time!

Things I loved this week:

Jamie plotting to get me to fall in love with him, quite cute.

Andy and Spencer casually going shooting together, is anyone else surprised this didn’t end in a fatality?

Stevie being taught how to ride a bike by obi wan Francis

Andy spotting the girl he’d got with a few nights previous… Busted! This mysteriously naughty side to him is hilarious and so unexpected!

Me telling Louise “I’d go f*cking mental” and then her awkwardly going mental at the girl when I actually meant at Andy.

Last Thursday I attended the Kardashian Kollection Lipsy Launch in the Natural History Museum. The party looked great amongst all the historic ornaments in the museum, although some of the fossils etc. kind of freaked me out! There was a mini fashion show, showcasing all the outfits and Khloe looked amazing. To the event I wore the Kardashian Kollection Faux Leather Shift dress, Office shoes and a necklace from New Look.

This week I am looking forward to The Big Red Ball, the event is for a worthy cause as the donations from the evening will help to improve the lives of children are affected by war, disease and poverty.

At the moment I love shopping for cute items for Digby; Mungo & Maud have some really cute items. Their new Paige denim dog beds are great and look comfy – they also suit Digbys style!
