Are we still allowed to say Happy New Year? Whatevr. I’m saying it.

January for me has been momentous in many ways. Hence the lack of blog. I’m also a year older so celebrations have been keeping me busy. One celebration I’m actually blogging about now. My oldest and bestest friend Holly treated me a belated birthday treat, taking me for cream tea at ‘Forest’ above Selfridges and then to the HAIR exhibition at Somerset House. IMG_0216

I was in HEAVEN. The HAIR exhibition featured a mock up Chanel runway, endless issues of Vogue and deep insight into fashion shows over the years.

…We then had a very chic and relaxing stay at the K-West hotel & spa in Shepherds Bush. The K-West used to be a recording studio once upon a time and keeps to it’s ‘funky’ roots with a sassy design and modern features. Not to mention we had the best night sleep we’ve had in a while…

1. Bathroom at K West

We were given the huge Embassy suite for our stay (bed as big as your goals) – but my favourite part was the spa. The spa at the K-West actually has a SNOW paradise. So cool (literally).  It’s the only place in the UK to cater for the ‘hot/cold therapy’ alternating between steam and ice environments.

1. Snow Paradise - K Spa

How brill is that?! Admittedly I only lasted a minute in the snow room as I’m a huge wimp but trés exhilarating for sureThe other spa features included a huge hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, and chill out cabins. Whata dream.

My outfit for the evening festivities! (top – Zara, Jeans – Versus Versace)

 It’s safe to say we were kept thoroughly entertained at the K-West Hotel with a great room, an amazing spa, a lively bar and a bangin’ eggs Benedict for breakfast.

With radio tour, signing tour and release over with; last week was all about having some fun (whilst working still of course). We started the week in Ireland performing at the prestigious Rose Of Tralee festival, had some TV and radio in between and ended it at the Bad Education Premiere and backstage at V Festival!

Here’s some snaps from The Bad Education Premiere

Me and Parisa were lovingly invited to spend the day at V-Festival with Pretty Little Thing… and of course, we also spent the day in their rad clothes too. I picked this snake print scuba skirt, brown, suede shirt and paired it with killer accessories and hair and makeup by Charlie Wilkinson and Kristina Theodoris. We spent the day backstage sipping on cocktails at the Mahiki bar, chatting to the cute James Bay and stuffing our faces with hotdogs whilst watching the awesome acts. As much as we adore performing – it was so chill to relax at a music festival and enjoy the other acts!
