It’s been all go this week, as ever!
Firstly, on Monday, I was very honoured to win a Designer’s award for my collections with Lipsy, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who voted, it really means a lot.
I’m so happy that people love the collections as much as I do. I have loved working with the brand and coming up with wearable collections that I am proud of.
We launched another one this week – it was shot back in the Summer out in glorious South Africa but the clothing is very much Autumn/Winter. Here is a link….
So this week I’ve had my extensions taken out and gone au natural, it felt so good the first time my hair got washed and was able to give my scalp a good old scrub…
I always have a break in between extensions because this gives your hair and the follicles time to breathe. I tend to have them out for a good few months…
I will still use clip-ins if I am wanting a bit more length or volume for shoots or a big night out, and Beauty Works do some fantastic ones with the clips already sewn in place – these are the ones I tend to use:
My hairdressers in London did a luxurious treatment on my hair afterwards using Philip Kingsley products: moisture balancing shampoo and conditioner, it made my hair feel so soft and look really conditioned!
I also went to the TV Choice Awards this week representing the BBC1 drama series I was part of – Ordinary Lies.
(Those glasses are not all mine by the way!)
Unfortunately we didn’t win but it was fantastic to be nominated. I had such a great night, I bumped into all my old friends from Corrie, it was like a proper reunion…
I was over the moon when I saw Hayley Tamaddon and new girl Faye Brooks BOTH wearing my Lipsy dresses from my collection, it was very surreal and I felt very chuffed….Thanks ladies, you looked fab!
A lot of people have been asking me about the make-up I was wearing that night…
My friend and make artist Krystal (@kyrstal-iammakeup on Instagram and her website is www.iammakeup.co.uk) did it for me very last min, she’s based in Essex – here is a bit of a run down for you !
The key products she used are :
Estée Lauder Cosmic eye shadow paint as an eyeliner, this went under my eye top and bottom…
Bobbi Brown Rose Sugar lip gloss is one of my fave colours and I kept it in my bag all night to re-apply when needed.
Backstage lashes ‘Chelsea’ – I really rate these lashes, reasonable priced and…They look natural but add subtle thickness and length.
Autumn is definitely upon us now…. I do love this time of year for fashion. I don’t love the weather so much but it means we can get the knee high boots out of the spare cupboard and dust off our favourite statement, snuggly coats.
I went for a meal with my friend Helen and my sister in-law Jess this week while I was down south , and I wanted to dress quite casual ( but warm as it was a bit colllldddddd!) , so I wore my chunky Bardot knit jumper from my Lipsy collection, and I had so many compliments from it… We’re also making it in a jade green colour too can’t wait to wear that one either!
Until next week,
