Hi VIPs! Thanks for reading our blog posts, tweeting and emailing us throughout 2014. It’s only when we take time to look back we realise just how much we’ve done. Here’s a recap:
The year started in a positive way when I took over a pod on The London Eye and hosted a day of blogging talks. The theme was New Year, New Start so other pods had fun things like yoga tuition and art lessons. I stayed in the pod and a new bunch of aspiring bloggers came in with each rotation. It reminded me why I love blogging and great to sign some copies of my book, Get Rich Blogging.
Then my sister and I went to LA, where we did the celeb’s fave fitness activity and hiked up Runyon Canyon. We bumped into Kelly Brook and her on-off boyfriend David Macintosh, who did seem quite happy. Not entirely convinced by his skimpy outfit though, he seemed like a right show off!
Fitness First started a new initiative called Home Run, where you start at a gym near your work and run to a gym near your home where your bags have been transported for you to collect. Victoria Pendleton (far left), AJ Ododu and Ashley James joined me for the first ever run – 4 miles – from London’s Tottenham Court Road to Finsbury Park.
Michelle Keegan designed a range of clothes for Lipsy and I went to meet her to talk fashion. The collection has lots of lovely textures – leather, lace and flattering bodycon (but knee length) dresses. She’s even more beautiful in the flesh, trust me!
Rochelle Wiseman unveiled her clothing collection for Very.co.uk and it turned out we have similar taste in clothes – florals rule!
I caught up with Ed Sheeran at the Q Awards, just days after he’d played the O2 where five couples got engaged during the gig. He said it was a bit inconvenient having to stop the gig and congratulate the couples, which is brilliantly honest. He seemed really down to earth. (Read my post about the Q Awards here)
The Corinthia Hotel trialled a new detox retreat and I went along for an IV infusion, which was covered by the Daily Mail.
My sister and I (below) joined Tom Daley, Kelly Brook and Natalie Appleton for the launch of Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. I managed to stay upright on the ice, which is an improvement on 2013!
I plan on improving on everything in 2015. I promise to bring you more celeb goss, more fashion bargains and more beauty tips.
