Hello lovely people. I am pleased to be writing again after what seems like an eternity of wearing a splint on my hand following a horse riding accident. During my accidental sabbatical I have been testing the latest brands of make up and beauty potions as well as jetting to London, where I am now, to attend London fashion week and Art week. I’ll be keeping you posted with all the latest glamour from the coolist city in the world.
This week I threw myself back into London social lives attending the Mercy Delta launch party for its latest hand printed scarf collection and debut silkscreen printed blouse collection. There were some beautiful shirts that I may have to order as the price point is so affordable £120-200, which will be initially sold exclusively in Trilogy stores. I ordered the lines most popular ‘Spirit’ scarf, as it is covered in horses and is also pink. My favorite combination! You can checkout the scarves at Harrods, Liberty, Harvey Nichols, Matches and Trilogy.
The next event of the night was Jeans for Genes, hosted by the fabulous Nick Ede at the W hotel. The bar was full with reality stars form The Only way is Essex and Made in Chelsea, with Katie Price plus entourage in tow. I couldn’t help but fantasize about the giant disco ball, that dominates the bar, crashing Indiana Jones style on certain annoying revelers. It would probably be considered a British disaster judging by the reality ruled airwaves! The event was a huge success and created awareness and support for an important cause. Well done Mr Ede and co. Find out how you can be part of Jeans for Genes day at http://www.jeansforgenesday.org
The other hot party of the week was the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack launch party held on the roof of Shorditch house. Guests had a single handcuff slapped on their wrist to get free food and drinks and, as a string quartet performed the music that inspired the author, masked waiters handed out champagne until the Q&A with author E.L James when the bar was politely closed for the interview. This didn’t go down well with my group of friends, who were far more interested in drinking than listening to the writer divulge her secrets. From what I can gathered its all written from fantasy, which, all seems to make sense, as the whole idea seems to be a toned down version of the book “The Story of O”, Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut” and erotic 80s mega movie ‘9 ½ weeks’ staring a very young hot Mickey Rourke and Kim Basigner.
It was a great night out and thoroughly enjoyed by all which was proved the following morning when Face Book was covered with messages asking how to remove the handcuff everyone seems to have woken up with. Try explaining that to your child on the school run the following morning! Luckily, It seems I am an escape artist trés excellent and managed to slip my hand out of the cuff very easily. I guess I’m not the submissive type then. The soundtrack is available now by EMI on Amazon.com and all other music outlets.
