The past week has been the busiest I’ve had in a while.. I had shoots every day in an array of locations.. from Sweden to Manchester..!! Trains, Planes and Automobiles! The summer is finally here and the sunshine is making me so happy! I’ve spent the weekend totally relaxing in the sun after all my travelling… Here is my favourite dress from this week… available from AX PARIS.
I have been shooting so much random stuff recently so I figured I’d share with you some of my recent work…
Yesterdays’ syndication shoot. Shot in Portland Place where they shot The King’s Speech. Watch Tuco in the background!
Some of the accessories I took along to the shoot yesterday.
Swimwear Catalogue from Borneo.
After a long, hard day shooting a Bollywood music video on friday, I tried Hix in Belgravia for the first time.To be honest.. it wasn’t really my ‘cup of tea’.. The food was obviously really good, it was just the combinations that weren’t really my thing… I had a beautifully presented rabbit starter which was water-bath poached… However it was serve cold with a pea gazpacho.. I was not expecting it to be served that way!! as there was no mention of cold on the menu… For main I had beef cooked for 72hrs which was literally melt-in-mouth, however it was sooo rich I couldn’t finish it. Definitely a restaurant for the hardcore foodie… even more hardcore than me!
The best bread basket I’ve ever had with 3 types of butter.
Amuse-bouche with haggis, curried chicken and goats cheese.
Poached rabbit and rabbit sausage.
72hr cooked beef with butternut squash.
Petit fours of chocolate, nougat and carrot cake.
Last week was the Nelly.com UK launch party in London and it was FABULOUS! Such a fun filled event with canopes, Nelly cocktails, photobooths and giveaways! A few of Nelly.com’s favourite dress brands were there so it was great to meet the designers and browse the collections.. It was sooo busy, filled with fashionistas.. In the end I had to leave to get some space and some food at Nobu of course! I’m so predictable..
Took my best friends brother along to check out all the pretty girls at the party!
Last thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to The Ark charity ball… It was a celeb packed, cocktail filled, evening of fabulousness! And the best bit was that £14Million was raised for the charity! The event was in Kensington Palace Gardens and the setting was stunning… There were canopes, acrobats, dancers and The Petshop Boys and Mumford and Sons performed…!
I wore a swarovski crystal gown from Body Amr.
Some of my loopy friends.
A gift of flowers when I left!
It has been a ‘bank holiday’ weekend here in the UK so we have had a nice extra day off. I took Tuco to The Cotswolds and stayed at dog friendly hotel Lower Slaughter Manor… He absolutely loved it and so did I! The Cotswolds is so beautiful and I highly recommend giving Lower Slaughter Manor a visit if you have a chance. After a long day walking through the countryside, breathing the fresh air, we had an amazing meal at the hotel restaurant followed by a few glasses of red and a mammoth sleep.
He had to have a bath after falling in the river!
Delicious poached salmon starter with vanilla foam and pistachio.
I have recently discovered the fabulously talented J’Aton Couture duo… Australian designers, with an italian background, of couture bridal and evening wear… Their pieces are hand made using traditional techniques and their designs are out of this world..!!! They have dressed celebrities such as Dita Von Teese, Charlize Theron, Dannii and Kylie Minogue and Lily Cole. Here are some of my favourites…
Having a puppy is such hard work! I did not realise I would be loosing so much sleep with him awake all night! However, the trainer came yesterday and thankfully I have a few pointers now. I took him to the pub with me saturday night, met some friends, had some dinner and drinks and he slept next to me all evening! I am taking him to meet my mum and sister tomorrow which is going to be nice! They’re super excited!
