Keeping my New Year’s resolution and the NTAs

Hello all,

It’s been a serious reality check since being back from Australia and settling back into the cold weather has not been easy… I have kept up my New Year’s resolution of not drinking coffee and feel so much better for it. I have a lot more energy, I have also kept up with exercising. I am training with Ashton Turner who worked with us on the MIC fitness DVD. I forgot how great exercising makes you feel and I really want to stick with it – long term.

Another thing I have been trying out is cold pressed juices. I have heard a lot of people rave about them and I thought I would give them a go. I would never do a juice diet as that is just not my thing, but I think they are perfect to have with meals or in between meals. The juices I love the most are from The Juice Smith (thejuicesmith.com). They have a really great variety and the texture is beyond smooth! My favourites are the almond milk ones. They taste delicious, I was seriously surprised as I’m very fussy. Like chocolate milk.

Last week I went to the NTAs which was cool. Although we weren’t nominated (shame) it was still great to be there. I love the industry I work in and I enjoy every aspect of it so I take an interest in who is winning what. I was in a box with a few of the TOWIE lot and they were all pleasant and lovely! There is no rivalry and it’s cool to hang out with people that do a similar thing to what you do.

This week I have been really busy setting up everything for the launch of my new blog. To give you the low down, there are a few different aspects to it. I understand that a few people think it is going to based solely on style. There will be a section which includes my “look of the day”. I’m lucky that people take an interest in what I wear and I thought it would be fun to do. As well as that there will be a section on beauty, I will be uploading videos each week where I try out all different kinds of products that are cruelty free. I think it’s important that people realise there are some great brands out there that don’t test… And if you aren’t educated on animal testing but love animals, you should do some research. It’s a lot more common than you think and although it is illegal to test on animals in the UK, there are brands that supply products to China where it is compulsory that products ARE tested on animals.

On my blog I will also be showing you some of my beauty tricks, so feel free to check it out and if there is anything you want me to talk about I would love to know!

Don’t let the January blues get you down!

Spending Christmas in Australia and spending a day with the guide dogs charity

Coming up to Christmas and I think it’s a bit hectic for everyone… So much to do, so little time? I spent the majority of my weekend wrapping presents. I like to pretend I’m santa and go all out with the gifts. Nothing better than seeing the people you care about have wide grins spread across their faces with large sparkling eyes in excitement. I’m currently at the airport waiting to fly to Australia. I’m going with my mum and sister Tiffany, as we have family out there. I absolutely cannot wait. 2014 has been amazing but it’s been hard work and I’m really looking forward to a break.

Last week I spent a day with the guide dogs charity ahead of their awards show. I got to meet a few of the gorgeous puppies in training. I wanted to get involved with this charity as I think it’s a great one that brings both people and animals together, showing how great the partnerships between species can be. Anyone that knows me will know that I am an animal lover and I think it’s amazing what these creatures can do to improve people’s lives when they have lost their sight in one way or another. Sight is something most of us are born with, and perhaps a lot of us take for granted. Surprisingly someone in the UK will lose their sight every hour. I know that if that was me I would want to have a guide dog by my side to not only provide me with constant company but to provide me with some form of vision.

The guide dogs charity receives no funds from the government and therefore relies very heavily on donations from the public. Guide dogs do not come cheap and in their lifespan will cost around £50,000 for training, upkeep and vet bills etc. If you read this and would like to help, please check out their website www.guidedogs.org.uk/.

This week I discovered the new Hawaiian Tropic™ Silk Hydration Face SPF 30, Satin Protection Sun Lotion SPF 30 and the NARS Laguna Bronzer. I don’t wear make up when I am on holiday, and these are the perfect products.

My find of the week is Abbott Lyon – an amazing watch brand I wore on my style take over for This Week I’m Wearing. I’m wearing the yellow one in the picture. All the styles are available at www.abboyttlyon.com

Have an amazing Christmas and New Year and Tweet me @imlucywatson with your holiday plans!

‘I’m so excited for the new series of MIC!’

Hello everyone!

This week I got my hair done again at Michael Van Clarke. Because of my hair extensions I have to be careful about which products I use so that I don’t make the roots of my hair too oily. I really wanted to perfect a dark ombré look so the Michael Van Clarke salon team has been helping to darken my roots. I love my new hair!

Recently I went for dinner with Jamie. He’s such a good friend of mine that its always really fun when we hang out. We love spending time together, but you’ll have to see how things turn out in this series of the show!

Last week I went to Andy’s Launch for his new clothing range Jam. It was really exciting seeing him launch the brand at Broadway in Fulham. He’s been working on it for such a long time and I’m really proud of him. Andy is such a good singer and performer, and with his tour coming up this summer he’s going to be really busy. If you haven’t got tickets to see him yet, make sure you do!

This has been an exciting week as I’ve made my debut as cover girl for FHM! I had such a great day shooting and the team were amazing. I was allowed to have loads of input into the style and theme of the shoot which was great, and I deliberately chose to go down a sporty route but I want to focus on being healthy and fit. When you read the interview, make sure u take it with a pinch of salt as sometimes sarcasm doesn’t travel. I think it’s okay to talk about ways you experimented, especially if you’re an adult in a committed relationship.

On Thursday night I went to Bounce launch. Bounce is a new mini cab app in London. The fares are super cheap and it’s so easy to use! I’ve been whizzing around London, and the cars always arrive super quickly. If you download the app, you get a free £10 credit, and everyone you refer using your code, both of you get another £10!

My product of the week is the Red Carpet Manicure Starter Kit. It’s an amazing gel polish kit that lets you do your nails at home with a professional result. It’s amazing for when you’re travelling and it’s so easy to top up. You can have perfect nails in less than 20 minutes! The starter kit is £65.95 and gel polishes are £12.95 each. You can get the kit and polishes at redcarpetmanicure.co.uk.

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!

‘I don’t like being messed around’

Hi Guys,

 

Welcome to my new HELLO! Online weekly blog. I will be talking to you about my life, style, the show and much more.

 

I hope you all enjoyed this week’s episode of Made In Chelsea. Going to the Spa was good fun and nice to have some girl time and get pampered. We all got quite drunk on the first night and passed out relatively early. The next morning I was feeling a little bit fragile… probably an element that lead to me being quite emotional.

It was good to catch up with Binky and talk about everything that was going on. I’m really supportive of her blossoming relationship with Alex. Andy’s gig was a tad explosive but aside from that I am really proud of Andy, he has a really good voice and it’s great he is starting to showcase his music more.

 

The situation with Jamie was a tough one. I don’t like being messed around and I don’t put up with s**t from guys. He is a close friend of mine and I find the whole situation very confusing. I’m not someone that enjoys putting their feelings on the line.

 

Things I loved this week:

* Francis’s comical input. He took his scary story telling very seriously which was cute.

* Cheska munching on a cake whilst I was crying about my feelings at the spa. Haha.

* Stevie’s dating techniques, such innocence.

* Binky and Alex together, cute couple right!

* Seeing how Jamie is pretty much the same with Phoebe and I.

* Spencer’s constant readjusting of his quiff.

I love hanging out with my dog Digby, he is the main man in my life. I literally don’t want to go anywhere without him. He is starring in the show and he gets along with Scrumble (Binky’s dog) and the cast members really well – it was so cute seeing him on screen when he was a lot smaller!

 

I had a lot of compliments about my outfits this week. The one I wore to Scrumble’s birthday in particular. My tartan dress was from Missguided, my leather jacket Miss Selfridge and my cute black boots with gold buckles are from office. If you like what I wear you can check out my rufflr page (rufflr.com/users/lucywatson/) and find out where I buy my outfits from/similar products and items I like. Above is a picture from the Spa weekend – I’m wearing an oversized shirt from Boohoo, necklace from New Look and shoes from Office. My sunglasses are from Ray Ban.
