Adjusting to our new home and my trip to Ibiza
I’m writing this while sunning myself on the White Island. Yes, I’m in Ibiza for a few days for a photoshoot… It’s over 100°f today … Hot hot HOT!!!
This last week has gone in a flash! On Saturday I was in Scotland doing personal appearance with my dad (Mike). He enjoys taking me to the Scottish ones in particular because he has scottish heritage, plus it’s nice for us to get some quality time together. I’m not going to lie though, the weather was SHOCKING! It rained practically the whole time we were there. There’s not much to report on the fashion front from that trip only that I kept warm in one in one of my own Lipsy designed navy blue parka jackets, blue jeans and Wellington boots…
On the Sunday I flew into London for Mark’s sister Natalia’s birthday which was so much fun and it was nice to get back to the house in Essex again too. We are really enjoying making it our home. Here’s Mark looking very pleased with himself, hosing the garden!
I had to have a relatively early night because I had a campaign shoot for Lipsy on the Monday. It was in Surrey in a hugeeeee mansion. Look at this! It was like a hotel! We did some investigating and found out that it was on sale for a modest £12million… Wowsers. Here’s a few sneaky pictures for you :-)
The shoot was for my last Winter collection with Lipsy. It’s going to be out mid October and it’s all party dresses and winter warming coats and wraps. We have started working on designs for Spring now, yes I know it’s August but that’s how it works in the world of fashion. After finishing the shoot I had to go to the Sanderson for a PR morning to release the new phase of my Lipsy collection. It’s a little more Autumnal with darker colours of Ox blood, black, monochrome, deep blue and fiery red. I have kept cuts and style simple, with more cocktail dresses, jump suits, a gorgeous tux shorts and jacket with black PU lining. It’s on sale in shops on August 13th and also on www.Lipsy.co.uk. This is me wearing one of my favourite pieces- a black jumpsuit with lace panelling – I’m with top fashion blogger Danielle Peazer (@daniellepeazer www.idlelane.com ) and she is wearing another one of my dresses a nude knee length one shoulder piece which is perfect for a date night :-)
That evening Mark and I enjoyed a date night at one of our favourite restaurants in Nobu, Mayfair. My dress is from my new Lipsy phase. Here’s us at the table.
So now I’m gonna fast forward a bit to today! It’s Friday morning in beautiful Ibiza and I am loving it here.
Managed to get a little trek out to some of the cool little clothes shops. I do love picking up gems from local boutiques. Here’s some hippy beachy dresses I spotted.
My team am I went to a really quiet part of the island for a photoshoot. The location was a ultra modern villa set into the hills. It was really something.
Not sure if I could ever live in a place like that, felt more like a set than a home- here’s a few sneaky pictures from the shoot – just look at that view!!!
Until next week,
