    Celebrity Yummy Mummy Fashion

    Hi VIPs! I recently had a baby a daughter to join my son – and now I’m not pregnant anymore, what better excuse for a shopping trip? For the past few months, I’ve been looking at pics of pregnant celebs to try to style my bump in a cool way, and now that my baby is suddenly out I’ve realised that nothing fits. And to tell you the truth, in my tired and emotional state I am not feeling as VIP as usual.

    I don’t like feeling this way – my default state is positive and energetic – so I asked myself what would make me feel better. And I figured out that I haven’t been spending any time on myself since she came along. I wouldn’t change that, I’m not asking for a day nor even an hour off, but I know that if I had a long shower, put on gorgeous clothes afterwards and made sure my nails and hair were the best they could be then at least I’d feel like me when I looked in the mirror.

    So I’ve booked my nail appointment, I’m calling the hairdressers and I’m thinking about what clothes would best suit me in-between sizes. What better way to start then by looking at some celeb yummy mummies for inspiration?

    Playsuit Inspiration

    frankie-play

    Mum of two Frankie Sandford has lost none of her sassy style since having children. I like her playsuit as she shows off her legs without having to worry about flashing her knickers if she suddenly has to chase a child.

    New Look has some gorgeous playsuits in right now like the black floral print frill trim playsuit and the Pink Vanilla black floral print playsuit.

    Divine Dresses

    myleene- outfits

    Myleene Klass is the ultimate sleek, sophisticated yummy mummy. She always looks smart and groomed and I want to look and feel just as put together as she does. The way to start with that is to maybe shop some of her range for Littlewoods. Don’t be snobby about the name ‘Littlewoods’ – there’s so much more to it than you’d expect.

    The Myleene Klass lace top skater dress is like the one she wore out recently and I also love the pretty Myleene Klass sweetheart neck pencil dress from her collection.

    Casual Outfits

    mila-outfit

    I’m a huge fan of Mila Kunis – she’s one of my top girl crushes – and I’m always impressed by how she looks stunning even when dressed casually. The key is to mix classic pieces that fit her perfectly. I’d recreate one of her looks withthe Moto clean Jamie jeans from Topshop and the tie back shirt from Topshop Boutique.

    I’m definitely feeling more confident now. Hopefully this has given you some inspiration too?

    Introducing The Newest VIP

    Hi VIPs! You may have noticed that this blog hasn’t been updated for a while. I’ve missed you lot and I hope you’ve missed me? I know I disappeared without any explanation and I’m sorry about that but I didn’t know what to write. For the past few weeks, I wasn’t living like a VIP. I was pregnant, hospitalised and terrified by the prospect of having a pre-term baby.

    However, now I am happy to announce that baby Isabella has made a safe arrival into the world. She was born at 33 weeks and 5 days weighing a teeny 5lb 1oz, but she has a strong pair of lungs on her!
    VIPBaby1

     

    Now that we’re both out of hospital, Isabella will be joining me in living the VIP lifestyle. You’re never too young or too old to live the best life possible.

    While in hospital, I lost my mojo slightly as I felt tired, drained and guilty for having to part from my older son to give his sister the best start in life. In hindsight, I should have remembered that life is what we make it! I could totally have glammed up my hospital ward more and used the time to experiment with nail art and different hair up dos. But I did at least live like a VIP when it came to food, using Deliveroo to order in healthy meals rather than eat the hospital food. That helped me feel nourished from the inside, even though I was suffering on the outside. I look back on photos like this with my son where I look completely drained and feel a bit sorry for myself, but I’ve moved on now and I’m not going to dwell on things.

    If you really want to know what happened, google Placenta Abruption and Subchorionic Hematoma. It was messy! I was in for seven nights on complete bed rest and then a following nine nights until my baby and I were healthy enough to leave. But that’s in the past now. We’re out and I intend to make the most of life like never before. I’ve always lived my life to the max but now I appreciate things even more. Life is so short, we really need to enjoy as much of it as possible.

    Since we’ve been out, we’ve enjoyed a pub lunch, I’ve had my nails done and we’ve received lots of presents from visitors while I’ve made up for lost time drinking Champagne. We’ve definitely started as we mean to go on…

    I’ve also been amazed by all my friends’ generosity in terms of clothing and gifts – we had absolutely nothing prepared and all of her brothers’ sleepsuits would have been humongous on her. I didn’t expect to give birth so early so the sterilisers, cot and pram were still in the loft and I’d even forgotten how to use them. On our first trip out, I realised half way down the road that the hood of the new iCandy peach pram was on upside down. It still looked stylish though – I always feel proud when I’m pushing it and get so many compliments on its luxurious Butterscotch colour.

    My son went to his first showbiz event at 3 months old, so Isabella won’t have to wait long until we wheel her to a celeb party while she sleeps snugly in the iCandy. We’ll keep you posted on what we’re up to and give you all the behind the scenes goss.

    We may take it easy over the next few days to recover from Isabella’s dramatic entrance into the world. She sure showed her diva credentials early. But we will have some goss by the end of the week – my mojo is back!

  • Capital FM Summertime Ball 2017

    Capital FM’s Summertime ball is always a celeb-fest! If you like pop music (and who doesn’t?) it’s heaven! All the chart-toppers are at the gig at Wembley Stadium and the atmsophere is bright, happy and ultimately pop-py. With so much sadness and terror in the World right now, the timing of the event couldn’t have been better.

    Even the outfits that the stars wore were cheerful! Let’s cheer ourselves up by looking at some of the bright and bold celeb outfits, to give us some inspiration about how to dress like a VIP at summer parties this year:

     

    Rita Ora

     

    Zara Larsson

     

    Ella Eyre

     

    Little Mix

     

    Louisa Johnson

    Clean Bandit’s Grace Chatto

     

    Hailee Steinfeld

     

    Event host Vick Hope

    Who do you think looked the most fabulous? Did you think Little Mix looked a bit odd in their own outfits, as opposed to matching each other? Perhaps we’re just not used to it.

    Anyway, it is nice to see some colour back when it comes to clothes. Fashion should be about having fun!

    Cannes Film Festival 2017

    Cannes is the most fashionable event of the film industry. The South of France festival lasts for 10 days and there’s a different premiere every single night. That’s not all though because after the parties, there are jewellery parties, fashion parties and charity galas. We’re Cannes veterans, we know exactly what happens as we’re usually there.

    This year, we’ve taken a break from being at the parties ourselves, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look (and admire) what’s going on. It’s the best place to look for fashion inspiration for weddings and summer balls.

    Our top 10 fave outfits so far this year are those worn by:
    Kendall Jenner

     

    Rihanna

     

    Kate Moss

     

    Jourdan Dunn

     

    Bella Hadid

     

    Kristen Stewart

     

    Nicole Kidman

     

    Jessica Chastain

     

    Kourtney Kardashian

     

    Uma Thurman

     

    It’s been sooooo glam! Whose outfit do you like the most?

    Billboard Music Awards 2017: Red Carpet Fashion

    Hello! We’re back from our hols and straight into an awards ceremony, starting the week as we mean to go on. The Billboard Music Awards, which takes place in Las Vegas, is always a star-studded event attended by the movers and shakers of the music business and anyone who’s ever been at the top of the US charts (or wants to crack the US charts).

    With Rita Ora, Nicole Scherzinger, Kate Beckinsale, Bebe Rexha and more in attendance this year, there were some pretty racy outfits. These ladies have figures to die for and they dressed to show them off. Sometimes less is more when it comes to clothes, especially if you’ve been working on your summer body.

    Here’s how they wowed on the red carpet at the awards to give us confidence to try the same:
    Rita Ora

     

    Vanessa Hudgens

     

    Bebe Rexha

     

    Lea Michele

     

    Hailee Steinfeld

     

    Nicole Scherzinger 

     

    Kate Beckinsale

     

    What do you think of the stars’ outfits? Would you be brave enough to wear something like that? The LLAVIP team say – just do it! If you believe you can pull it off then you can. It’s all about attitude!

  • LLAVIP Visit The Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel, Tenerife

    Roca Nivaria Hotel

     

    While you may imagine celebrities spend their whole lives attending premieres and parties, the only way they have the energy for this is by taking regular breaks. If we want to live like a VIP, we need to holiday like one as well.

    This week, the LLAVIP team are doing just that and I, Zoe, am away at a very special place where I am following in the flip-flopped footsteps of holidaying celebs. I’m at the Roca Nivaria Gran hotel in Tenerife (which you may have seen on TV recently) and to get the full holiday experience my out of office is on and blog updates on celeb goss will commence when the team is back at work on Monday 22 May.

    However, you can follow what I’m up to every day by checking out the @livelikeavip Instagram and Twitter accounts – we’ll be posting a lot of photos like this:

    rocanivaria-tenerife

     

    Roca Nivaria Evento Piscina

     

    If you can’t place where you’ve seen the hotel before then cast your mind back to the first episode of the most recent series of The Only Way is Essex. Lauren Pope posed on her balcony while Georgia Kousoulou enjoyed breakfast by the pool…

    lauren-tenerife-roca

     

    georgia-towie

     

    My mission is to immerse myself into the resort’s activities and truly holiday like a TOWIE star. I’ll do a full blog post about this, explaining how we can all holiday like a TV star,  after I’ve experienced a true break. After all, there’s no point in going away and having my laptop on half the time. The TOWIE stars wouldn’t do that, would they? But they would use social media and so that’s what I’ll be doing.

    Have a lovely week and don’t forget to follow my adventures – @livelikeavip – on Instagram and Twitter!
