Hello darlings, 

It's that time, The London Lifestyle Awards are back for the 8th year running and I'm extremely excited to say the least! 

I recently attended their shortlist announcement held at Mayfair's prestigious Tiki Bar & Nightclub  Mahiki. The event conveniently happened to fall on national rum day and guests were treated to a selection of cocktails that were mixed together with the finest Caribbean and Polynesian rum.

In attendance were a mix of entrepreneurial individuals from a diverse mix of London based businesses to find out if they had been shortlisted to be nominated for this years awards. As a born and bred Londoner I absolutely love any opportunity to celebrate my city, and it's the amazing businesses based in London that are to thank for that. A city where you will never get bored, and hold endless opportunities.

Eldorado Festival x Brothers Cider Sass

Hey dolls, 

Now some of you may know as the Queen of Sass, but this summer with the help of  I have transformed into a festival Queen with Brothers Cider at Eldorado Festival.

This year I made a return with my girls to my fave boutique festival Eldorado Festival which takes place at the beautiful Eastnor Castle. Aside from my obvious royal duties and getting my Sass on, this year I was on a mission!

We of course had to glamp in style with on site boutique accommodation Hotel Bell Tent. We didn't choose the glamping life, the glamping life chose us.

Now you all know I love any excuse to get my glow on, and festivals are of course one of the best places to come dressed over the top and extra AF! I had the pleasure of getting my glitter make up done by on of The Gypsy Shrine's glitter girls Skye Petrie. You can follow her on Instagram here. Also don't forgot to spot some of the Gypsy Shrine ladies that I snapped  for my Eldorado Festival best dressed album on the Brothers Cider social channels.

With my trusty camera in one hand and of course a can of Brothers Cider in the other, throughout the weekend I went on the sassiest of hunts to find the best dressed festival attendees. The fun packed weekend had a theme of 'Wild Things' on the Saturday and in true Eldorado tradition Sunday had to be a Gold theme. Click here to see an album of some of my sassy picks of festival attendee outfits. 

'Tis the season for all things glam, glow, glitz and EXTRA. I already can't wait to find out what the theme is for next year! Enjoy the rest of this summer of festivals, remember to drink responsibly and #glowgetem.

Stay Sassy & Sparkly, xoxo



London Lifestyle Awards Sass

Hello darlings,

How about we revisit the snapchat and Instagram stories fun I took you all on live whilst I attended the London Lifestyle Awards? #LLAwards2016

Kick starting the night off with a drinks reception and photographs, on the 3rd October guests arrived glamorous, dapper and of course sassy at London's luxurious Lancaster Hotel. Amongst myself and the guests including the beautiful Sinitta, Lady Victoria Hervey, Jodie Marsh, Michelle Heaton, Arlene Phillips, Vanesa Feltz, Denise Welch and several other well known faces.. We were treated to fine dining, live ballet performances and music acts. Not forgetting the fabulous hosting from Chris Hopkins who was in high sprits for the duration of the event, ensuring we were all kept entertained with his engaging wit.

The night was topped off by a live performance by Ben Ofoedu (leading singer of Phatts & Small) singing their international hit single "Turn Around." Although I was wearing 5 inch heels (and slightly regretting it after a couple of hours), that definitely didn't stop me and the rest of the guests dancing the night away. 

Congratulations to all of the winners and of course to the nominees. You are truly London's best of the best!

A MASSIVE thank you to House of CB for coming to my rescue and sorting me out with the absolutely beautiful gown I wore to the awards literally 2 hours before the event started (My other gown was mixed up with a different delivery date, typical.) Anyway, I suppose everything happens for a reason and in hindsight I definitely felt even sassier in this beautiful gown. (There's always room for more sass.)

Also can we please take a moment to give the LLA's CEO Jason Gale a HUGE round of applause (Or in this case go and like his recent insta pic... @jasonjgale) for creating such a wonderful annual event, now in their seventh year running, celebrating our beloved London "Open for business" and all it has to offer. 

Now for 2017!

Are you a London based business and believe that you are the best of the best? Or are you a member of the public who would like to suggest a potential nominee? Nominations are now OPEN for the London Lifestyle Awards 2017. Click here to make a nomination!

Forge & Co Sass

Hey dolls, 

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Forge & Co for a late lunch and drinks. Known for its versatile trendy social working space this venue boasts of a stylish dining area accompanied by its of course stylish lounge area. Perfectly located on trendy Shoreditch High Street, they have an extended co working space on their top two floors specially for businesses and individuals that choose to rent their desks short or long term. Let's not forget to mention they also have DJ's playing from the evening on the weekends.

Warmly welcomed by the staff (The receptionist loved my sunglasses just saying) and the lovely manager Theo. Both myself and a friend were stunned he so effortlessly guessed our favourite cocktails (Pornstar & Espresso Martini FYI). 


Their amazing coffee is what initially attracted me to the venue, so if I'd ever find myself in Shoreditch I always without fail pop in to pick up a latte. My first of many dining experience was simply wonderful. The food was delicious, along with the beautiful presentation my favourite thing on the menu had to be the Butternut squash & white bean soup as a starter alongside opting for their Grilled Rib Eye steak for the main course.

So you've heard it here from the Queen of Sass, make sure to plan a visit to Forge & Co sooner rather than later!

Stay Sassy, xoxo
