Happy Friday everyone !
Hope you have all had a great week. I have been back to my home town of Manchester this week to catch up with my family and friends. It’s been lovely to be back up north, despite the mix of weather!
Last week was quite a fun and eventful one, My friend Beckie (who was my maid of honour at my wedding) came down to Essex on Friday with her partner Sam, and we took them to Sheesh in Chigwell.
Sam and Beckie both said they were craving the food since the wedding and it didn’t disappoint!! The good is just sooo good and always a favourite with our friends and family…
It’s pretty healthy too which is always good…well, the main courses are – but these puddings were definitely treats!
My brother Andrew came down too for the weekend as he is a teacher and now enjoying the 6 week summer holiday…! We were joined by Mark’s mate Freddie!
As the weather was nice, I kept it casual and wore my jeans, with a Lipsy Bardot black fringed top from my new Autumn Winter Lipsy range, and I finished the look off with a classic tailored black blazer from Zara.
Mark and I also decided to throw a garden party at our house for all our friends, and because it’s Summer we decided to go with a Hawaiian theme.
Mahiki which is a Hawaiian themed nightclub in London and Dubai.
Mark and I have been going for years to both clubs, we love the atmosphere and their cocktails, and now the brand have started doing ‘Mahiki at home.’
This is where where Mahiki pop up’s travel to someone’s house or party and offer a little bit of paradise at lots of cool events.
Mahiki at Home offers the most exclusive hospitality package, we had bar staff who made the BEST home-made cocktails, DJ’s who took over the music in the evening, the whole garden got turned into a Hawaiian paradise. Look at the attention to detail!
Shots got brought out on surf boards, people were drinking out of coconuts and pineapples.
Not only that we also got the sunshine (we really didn’t know what we would have done if it had rained… its not quite the same having a cocktail out of a coconut, while sat on your settee is it ?!!)
It was a perfect day and party.
We had all of Mark’s mates there and a few of my mates travelled down from Manchester, everyone said it was the best Summer party they’ve ever been to!
The following day I can safely say , the house was a bit of a mess, but we all mucked in to clean up.
Because it’s Summer I very rarely blow dry or style my hair just because the humidity changes it anyway. So I’ve been using lots of this cult product: Bumble N Bumble Sea Spray…
To use I spray it through my damp or dry hair; let dry naturally or blast my hair with a cool hair-dryer, with my head upside down. The less you touch it, the longer it will hold.
It just gives you a sun-dried, beachy look style and it’s sooo easy. You can get it anywhere, it’s on sale at Boots for £21.50.
There’s lots of variety on the market all varied in price. Here’s some more sea salt sprays!
I can’t wait to try this ‘super shot’ drink. It’s the only one on the market that contains 3 anti-ageing ingredients, antioxidants and vitamins.
All you have to do is drink one once a day for glowing skin, healthy hair and stronger nails.
Available at Holland & Barratt or online
I have heard good things about it, so will let you know how I get on!
I’m back to the South now for more meetings and auditions.
Until next week,
Lots of love
