Supperclub's 2nd Birthday

I went to Supperclub’s second birthday last week. I had heard a lot of good things about it from friends and wasn’t disappointed. There were flamboyant performers, tasty cocktails and the opportunity to eat delicious canapés from a girl wrapped in cellophane!

If you’re in a pack of single girls, looking for a flirt (and maybe a kiss under the mistletoe) then Supperclub might not quite fit the bill. Revellers are stylish and lovely but the majority seemed to be homosexual.

But who’s in it just for the boys? Not me! Give me some yummy morsels and a good drink any day of the week.

Crème de la Mer

I went along to the rather glamorous Estée Lauder building last Thursday to learn about new developments with luxury skincare brand, Crème de la Mer.

Over a glass of champagne (lovely) I learnt all about the different products. Most people are familiar with the brand’s popular Moisturizing Crème but if, like me, you think a cream of this type is better suited to more mature skins, there are plenty of alternatives. The Oil Absorbing Lotion, Moisturizing Lotion and Moisturizing Gel Cream are lighter and quicker to apply but all contain the ‘miracle’ formula in the original Moisturizing Crème.

Crème de la Mer is currently offering various complimentary treatments at their counters – there is no obligation to buy and the staff are welcoming and friendly. I would recommend trying the eye care treatment I opted for. The eye creams are applied using a silver-tipped applicator, which reacts with the haematite in the eye product and encourages blood to flow to the surface for a de-puffed, glowing eye area (something I definitely need in the morning, these days!).

Yes, this kind of skincare doesn’t come cheap but if, like me, you struggle with your skin, it really is a worthy investment. Whilst you might initially baulk at the occasionally triple-figure price tags, the quality of the products mean that you need to use about a quarter of the amount of a more affordable counterpart. If used correctly, these products will last for ages and the results they manifest will surely be worth it. At the age of 26, I am starting to think seriously about my skin and beginning to think about anti-ageing. Crème de la Mer’s Moisturising Lotion is looking like a good place to start.

Diane Pernet - a Shaded View on Film

I have long been a fan of Diane Pernet’s blog, so I was excited to go along to the 3 Objectives studio ( to see Pernet’s five latest fashion films and hear her in conversation with artist Hormazd Narielwalla.
I enjoyed all five films but my favourite was the first, showcasing a female bodybuilder in a tense, sexually charged environment.

Check out 3 Objectives videos here:

Bastyan Pop Up Shop

I went along to the launch of Bastyan’s pop-up shop on Thursday night. It looked great, everyone commented on how it looked more like a permanent shop than a pop-up. The current collection includes some amazing dresses and smart separates; perfect for Christmas parties. I was seriously lusting after the accessories too, especially the large ponyskin bag and creamy leather oversized clutches. The winter coats are gorgeous too. I could go on.

For Spring, there is an exciting ‘Collaborare’ collection. I’m most excited about Vanessa Harrington’s collaboration – Vanessa’s prints are inspired by DNA, stunning exotic flowers and butterflies. There were gorgeous scarves, cushions and even ceramics, I wanted the lot!

There were some very glamorous guests at the launch – along with Tonia (Bastyan Founder), her PR and Marketing Coordinator, Harpreet Chohan and lovely communications guru Caroline Bradley all attended.

Make sure you visit the Bastyan pop-up while you can – at the moment there are plans to close it Christmas Eve!

A Few of my Current Favourite Things

These are some of the highlights from an Exposure PR press day I went to a little while ago – they represent some really cool brands such as Nike, Levis, Hunter, Toywatch and Katie Eary.

Cool Hunter wellies - the new versions of my favourite 'Festival Boot' from a while ago

The new Toywatches are less about plastic and fun pop colour, more about sophistication and gold tones.

LOVE this colour combo from Dr Martens! I want the yellow satchel but am too chicken for the hot pink boots, think black patent are more my style.

A stunning ostrich feather dress from Katie Eary

I WANT this trench! Please Katie Eary, Please?

A new range from Delphine-Charlotte Parmentier, Chanel's costume jeweller

These Terry De Havilland shoes are made to dance in

Wolsey - really cool brand, awesome photos!

My love…

…Of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant at Claridges knows no bounds. Top tip for fine dining on a budget? Have lunch there – it’s only £30 (even at weekends) and the food is beyond delicious. I took Mum to celebrate her birthday last weekend. The service is impeccable and all of the staff are brilliant (Govind is my number one favourite).

I attended two spooky parties this Halloween. The first was at White Stuff (where I work as a copywriter). These guys know how to throw a good bash and winning the dressing up competition is the aim of the game! The Creative team (where I work) went as ‘Death of the Penthouse’ with our Creative Director taking on the role of Hugh Hefner. The rest of us donned ears and robes to be dead bunnies. The most fun part was choosing our mode of demise. I chose to be the victim of a botched boob job.

The second party I went to was in Hertfordshire, in my friend’s boyfriend’s industrial estate. It was brilliant; there was a hog roast, a bouncy castle, apple bobbing, UV lights and live bands. Amazing!

Life and Soul Book Launch

A little while ago, I went to the launch of Emma Forbes’ new book, Life and Soul. You might remember Emma from her Live and Kicking presenting days. The books great; packed full of ideas for cooking and entertaining. Holly Valance took a break from Strictly Come Dancing to attend. It was a wonderful launch at the Ivy with enough food and drink to sink a battleship and biccie giveaways – my favourite kind of party!

Sharon’s Nails by Zara

Love Sharon’s nails this week – really want to try this colour combo but have damned tiny nail beds.
