Happy Tuesday everyone, and it’s also mine and Mark’s 1st wedding anniversary today, which has come around so quick!
Thank you to everyone who has wished us well, it really does mean a lot :-) I will speak more about what we have done the last few days in next week’s blog – this one is more of a recap on the previous week’s goings on ….
Firstly – My new Lipsy collection is OUT!
Here’s just a few of my fave key pieces…
This is my summer range. I am very happy with it, there’s a lot of ‘Bardot’ off-the-shoulder pieces which I love at the minute especially this pretty white top with laced sleeves.
This top also comes in black… I wore mine when I visited Lipsy the other week, with a pair of black skinny jeans but I think they’ll look great with a pair of denim shorts at a festival, or a day out in a park.
The reason why I love this off-the-shoulder style is because shoulders, neck and décolletage are a sexy area on a woman, so they need to be seen, plus it’s nice to get a bit of sun on your shoulders if the weather is good!
To celebrate the launch of this next collection, Lipsy did a VIP preview in my home town of Manchester. I couldn’t be there as I was filming Our Girl all day, in nearby Bolton, but my friends from Coronation Street went to the store in the Arndale to get first viewings on the clothing, and have a mammoth trying on session.
How gorgeous do Cath and Brooke look here?!
And Katie and Tisha!
Thanks for the support Cath, Brooke, Tisha and Katie it means a lot and I love seeing you out and about in my pieces!
Speaking of the girls – Cath, Tish, Katie and Natalie Anderson are all taking part in a massive charity challenge called Trek Fest next weekend where they will trek cross country for 35 miles in one day in the very hilly Brecon Beacons in Wales. Rather you than me ladies – this one sounds really hard going!
Here’s a piccie of Cath, Tisha and Katie on a recent trek.
Well done girls, don’t you look the part with your proper boots on! I am very proud of you for doing this. To sponsor them please go to http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/teamvital01 and for Natalie, it is www.justgiving.com/Natalie-Anderson-shepherd.
I am loving being back up in Manchester though, as I get to enjoy my mum’s cooking and catch up with my friends. Myself and my old school friends enjoyed Sunday lunch together for the first time in a while and we are planning a ‘big night out’ soon which I am VERY excited about.
Mark was also here last week, and we had an early anniversary meal at Tattu, which is a VERY cool Asian restaurant in Spinningfields.
I was so impressed. The food was really tasty and the cocktails were amazing, but far to easy to drink!
The restaurant itself was totally different to whatever I’ve experienced in Manchester before, it felt a bit as though we were in Dubai or New York…
They have a huge statement cherry blossom tree right in the middle of the restaurant, perfect to have your picture taken in front of, or to eat underneath!
Everyone’s been asking me where my black choker is from when I was wearing it that night and many other nights recently. It’s from god old Topshop! You can get it in store now.
For my beauty must have I have got to recommend this matte lip pencil as I’ve been wearing this all week. It’s one of my fave Revlon products.
I am very pleased with my new footwear purchase. Check out these fitties! My new black strappy sandals from Mango.
They look great with my cropped boyfriend jeans and a plain T shirt… So comfy, or you could dress them up with an LBD for a hot date.
I am also loving this tres cute bag from Zara.
Also a few people have tweeted me asking me where my outfit was that I wore when I went to Club Liv in Manchester. I wore my orange Terry De Havilland shoes, jeans from Topshop and and top from my new Lipsy range.
Right, I must sign off now as I need to get back on set!
Until next week,
All my love
