Will We Tire of TOWIE?

12 Jul

There is much to discuss in the land of Essex!

I absolutely love The Only Way is Essex and, as you know from previous posts, I visited Lauren Goodger’s salon back in May to get one of her infamous spray tans. It was all very new and exciting then to have an actual shop where you are almost 90% likely to see your fave TV reality star strolling through the doors! Now we are in July and the whole female cast have turned all entrepreneurial on us and put their names to something; whether it is a dress collection, bikini range or cupcakes, Lydia, Gemma and co have all signed up to sell us something. So let’s take a look at the competition…

We begin with the perfect Lucy Mecklenburgh and her brand-new bikini range being sold at Bella Bamba. I’ve been hearing about this for a while now through the Twittersphere and I have to admit once I clapped eyes on the designs… I felt mildly disappointed! I can’t believe I feel this way because Lucy is is the epitome of perfect but her designs are just plain boring. What do you think?

I can’t peel my eyes of her hot bod! Cripes have I got work to do!

Also brand new this month we have a collection for the curvier girls amongst us designed by the bold and bubbly Gemma Collins. Full of wild patterns and pleasing silhouettes the dresses are, to her credit, very flattering. I’d love to be able to post more info but at the time I was writing this her official website www.gemmacollinsofficial.com was undergoing some maintenance. So instead I’ll give you some cheeky photos of my fave dresses so far;

Lauren Pope is a very savvy little thing. This rather fit young lady has her fingers in every pie it seems as she has managed to carve out a successful career in DJ’ing and glamour modelling as well as having her own hair extension business (Hair Rehab) and dating website (www.hopewithpope.com) .. Aaahhh!

The Wright’s arne’t shy of a few spin-off successes themselves either. Mark tried his hand a spot of presenting on the dating show Take Me Out: The Gossip and then won his own show on ITV2 (Mark Wright’s Hollywood Nights) – both shows were pretty pants in my opinion with Hollywood Nights being unbearably cringy in places. His efforts on I’m A Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here were Ok at best, I suppose, as he was the runner-up coming second to Dougie from McFly.

Mark’s older sister Jess Wright is doing just as well as the rest of them, naturally. She owns her own lingerie shop in Loughton, Essex and has recently ‘launched’ a singing career (although I’ve not heard her song on the radio or seen her video on the telly just yet but I’m sure this is her big break). Her track ‘Dance All Night’ made it to number 10 on the Clubland 21 track listing. Congratulations!

I can’t take it any more! If I’m bored of writing about all of these pointless merchandise attempts then you surely must be bored of reading about it! It doesn’t even stop there; Lydia has Bella Sorella, Sam & Billie own Minnie’s Boutique, Cara & Billi own Belles & Beaus and Lauren Goodger obviously has Lauren’s Way. Even the TOWIE rejects of yesterday are branching out; Harry Derbidge has his own collection on www.lovelemonade.com, Amy Childs owns the ever-inventive Amy Childs Salon and Kirk Norcross is currently dating Jodie Marsh and plugging his and his Dad’s (Micky) Sugar Hut empire online and with PAs.

The real story that will come of all this will come right after the final episode of TOWIE airs on our TV screens and the spotlight moves on to some other poor unsuspecting souls currently living their lives, happier than Larry himself.

It will be survival of the fittest (literally) and I can’t wait to see who has what it takes to make it post-TOWIE.

Who’s your money on?

My Spoilt Little Bichon

7 Jun

Today, Princess’ new wardrobe essentials arrived in a cute little purple package from Puppy Kit.

Neatly folded inside was a bright pink raincoat and a baby pink ‘Princess’ Vest. I’ve posted before about the raincoat but it was way too small for my chubby Bichon before so I had to swap it for a bigger size. Now both items fit perfectly and I thought I’d share the highly adorable sight with my fellow pooch lovers!

Puppy Kit is located in Buckhurst Hill in Essex and is also popular with TV stars from ‘The Only Way is Essex’. My personal puppy faves from the show are the tiny Elvis (owned by Billi Mucklow shown below left with best friend Cara Kilbey) and Wrighty (owned by Mark Wright & Lauren Goodger in an earlier series of TOWIE, both shown below right leaving the Puppy Kit boutique).

I have something to get off my chest.

Excuse the pun.

Before I do I would like to make it clear that a woman’s body is, in my opinion, some of nature’s finest craftsmanship. And YES I also realise I am not Beyonce or any other perfect individual.

Now, some of us are larger than others. No big deal. Doesn’t bother me. Whatever.

What bothers is me is when you see a beautiful young lady, in public, who clearly has trouble dressing her figure.

Example 1: Large ladies in short, Body-Con dresses/skirts, short shorts and teaming leggings with short tops

If you have been blessed with some ‘booty-full’ curves then good for you! Embrace them with some flowy, on-trend maxi- dresses or boyfriend cardigans. There is no need to whack out a body-con dress becuase let’s face it, if you’re not under a size 10 those bad boys are going to cling to anyone’s lumps and bumps.

Celebrity Example: Gemma Collins – Look at the difference between these two dresses. The blue body-con dress on the left literally highlights all of the bits we’d ordinarily want to hide whereas the looser, black dress creates a much slimmer shape:

[ Picture on left click http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Gemma+Collins+Only+Way+Essex+DVD+Signing+S0pnMkAcA46l.jpg ]

As for leggings, please, please, please don’t leave your ass hanging out for the world to see because a) they are probably see through and b) if you’re not a Kardashian the general public can see your cellulite. End of story.

Actually the above leggings advice applies to any person of any size. Including me. I’ve taken note.

Celebrity Example: Poor Christina Aguilera! She’s not really helping herself here, not only has she piled on the pounds of late she’s also letting it all hang out in see-through leggings (right)! Such a shame because she can look stunning whatever shape she is (left):

[ Right http://www.spetteguless.it/tag/christina-aguilera-leggings/ ]

Example 2: Slim girls in cleavage-hungry tops

If you’re a slim-jim and feel your breasticles haven’t developed anywhere near what you were hoping for then don’t make it worse for yourself by wearing a top that clearly needs a bigger bust to sit pretty. Also, take note that wearing a bra bigger than your actual size doesn’t go un-noticed and actually makes you look smaller.

Celebrity Example: Annalynne McCord (the repeat offender!) – Although this is a swimsuit shot on the left you can see my point. This swimsuit needs more boobage! The bustier pic (right) is a classic example of a waste of cup space! The vest on the bottom, I don’t think, will look good on anyone. Just seems worse here with the lack of cleavage.

 BUT!!! Look what you slimbos CAN DO! If I could look this classy with that much booby on show I’d use this daily!

So basically what I’m trying to say is, dress for your figure and not for the trends. Incorporate what’s hot in your own way. The general public don’t want to see that secret jello, the fatty ripples or empty bras!

I reckon I have some clearing out of my own to do!

Pooch Couture!

5 May

A quick hop up the road, two minutes from Lauren’s Way, is Puppy Kit. This adorable little dog boutique stocks some of the cutest doggy finds for all your four-legged friends.

Today, my little Bichon Frise, Princess, ended up with two presents brought home for her. A pink all-in-one rain-coat with ‘Hollywood Star’ on the back and a cool summer vest with ‘High Maintenance’ printed on it.

Luckily my little pooch likes her new wardrobe additions (whereas my credit card did NOT!).

Tanned & Ready To Jet!!

5 May

So, I had my Essex-Style spray tan today! Since I am going to Spain on Tuesday, I visited the Lauren’s Way salon in Buckhurst Hill, Essex today, which is owned by The Only Way is Essex star Lauren Goodger. My appointment was booked at 2pm and I arrived 10 minutes early as advised as they were understandably extremely busy!

The decor was stunning with beautiful, French-style mirrors and Lauren’s Way products lining the walls.

Lauren was not what I was expecting at all. She’s so tiny! Recently, the magazines and newspapers have been going to town making up stories that she’s big and fat and her weight is causing her to be depressed.

NEWS FLASH GLOSSIES!! Dressed casual in leggings and converse, her hair tied in a high pony-tail and carrying a ginormous Chanel carrier she looked far from the down-trodden chick she’s made out to be! She made sure she addressed the room and said hello to all her staff (who seem to be more like friends than colleagues) and the atmosphere remained chirpy and buzzing.

The only problem was the 40 minute delay. If this was any other salon I wouldn’t have waited…but seeing as I was in Lauren’s Way I sat it out. It was worth it though as anyone waiting was offered a tall glass of champagne or a soft drink of your choice.

So now I’m tanned and ready to get on that jet plane on Tuesday and take a quick break away with my best friend. I wonder what sort of crazy people I can meet and see on the beaches of the Costa Blanca…

Until next week…Peace!

Who’s That Chick?!

27 Apr

If it’s not Khloe Kardashian, it’s Lauren Goodger. If it ain’t Beyoncé, it’s that girl from up the road. Or the guy who served me in the supermarket. People are just fascinating and I love to see what people wear, what they say, who to, where they go…

It might sound strange but we all do it, reading the mags, papers and thinking ‘Who’s that chick? Why she do that?’

You might not even notice you do it. Like my nan. She picks up stuff from other people all the time but refuses to admit it. She can spend two minutes with an American person and come away pronouncing her ‘R’s’.

I admit it. That’s why I created this blog. To view my thoughts (however weird and crazy). I will physically go out of my way to find all different types of people.

I’m heading to Essex next week to get a spray tan at Lauren Goodger’s salon, Lauren’s Way (from hit UK show, The Only Way Is Essex), then popping round the corner to go little dog shopping at Puppy Kit (also mentioned in The Only Way Is Essex). Let’s start this thing off…

Essex Style!!
