  • Festive Weekend Roundup

    Hi VIPs! Happy Christmas and New Year period :) This is a funny time of year as the days blend into each other and the hardest decision to make is what to eat for lunch / snacks / dinner and whether or not to have another glass of wine (if in doubt, say yes).

    However, there is always gossip in celeb land. So if you feel out of touch, here are the stories the Live Like a VIP team are all interested in right now:

    Beyonce and Jay Z


    Music’s golden couple celebrated Christmas Day in Iceland. How perfect is that – a White Christmas? However, the orange outfits probably aren’t so perfect. They look a bit like bin men!

    Mariah Carey


    Mariah is in Aspen right for the festive period and it’s safe to say she likes Louis Vuitton. She deserves some retail therapy after her year.

    Renee Stewart


    Rod Stewart’s daughter has made the cover of Tatler. Definitely takes after her mother, Rachel Hunter.

    Sheridan Smith


    The gorgeous Sheridan Smith has won an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List. We reckon she’ll get a damehood one day.

    John Legend


    And finally happy 36th birthday to John Legend. How cute did he look as a baby? We love this Instapic.

    Now go and have a walk and stretch your legs or you’ll regret the inactivity when it’s time to act on your January resolution.

    We’ll be back tomorrow with an update of what the celebs have been up to!

  • Weekend Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! How is everyone doing? In a week it will be Christmas month. Hope you’re bracing yourself for a month long of partying. In the meantime let’s see what the celebs got up to this weekend.

    Sam and Billie Faiers opened up their first boutique outside Essex in North Yorkshire. Minnies will no doubt do fantastic up North!

    Sam Faiers

    Lily Allen has revealed that she snubbed the Band Aid song as it felt very smug and that she preferred donating to actual charities.

    Lily Allen

    Beyonce released an incredible home-made music video of herself dancing around a hotel for her song 7/11. We wish we had her skills.


    The Queen Latifah Show has been cancelled in its second season due to low ratings. However, new episodes will continue until March 2015.

    Kim Kardashian has released her 7th perfume called Fleur Fatale and has so far been to Australia and Dubai to promote it. She also looks incredibly sexy in the ad for it.

    Kim Kardashian

    Kourtney Kardashian on the other hand has shared a cryptic tweet suggesting that it may be over for her and Scott. We have to wait and see what the two decide!

    Kourtney Kardashian

    Jimmy Kimmel’s Celebrity Mean Tweets are back with the likes of Britney Spears and No Doubt reading some horrible things about themselves. Nice to see them poking fun at it though.

  • Weekend Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! How is everyone? Hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed a fantastic display of fireworks. Carry on the colourful display of fun with the latest happenings in the showbiz world!

    The Kardashians landed in London this weekend and they put on a fabulous display of fashion and fan hysteria. They were also the star guests at the Hairfinity UK launch event.


    Britney Spears has shared a picture of herself with her new boyfriend Charlie Ebersol on Twitter. Looking good!

    Former playmate Kendra Wilkinson has revealed that she fully intends to stay with her husband Hank Baskett after his transsexual cheating scandal. She unveiled on Access Hollywood that she’s forgiven him.


    Beyonce and Jay Z are apparently hoping to conceive their second child in France after moving out there for a year. I guess, Blue Ivy will get a sibling soon!


    Nicki Minaj has said that she considers herself a ‘skinny girl’ and also defended her Anaconda music video mentioning that no-one should feel the need to hide their bodies.

    Another short teaser for Fifty Shades of Grey has been released which shows Jamie Dornan getting suited and booted. Hot!

  • The Week’s Best Gossip

    Hi VIPs! Congratulations on surviving another week. The weekend starts now with some great tv (see below) which you must catch-up on if you’re going out to welcome in the weekend with some cocktails. You can do whatever you want – you’re free!

    So let’s start with the TV I mentioned. The nation’s favourite TV based reality TV show Gogglebox is about to get a whole lot more entertaining as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher take part in a one-off charity special at 9pm on Friday night. They’re raising money for Stand Up to Cancer. I don’t know how, but one thing I do know is I’ll be watching it.


    The movie Foxcatcher had it’s premiere on Thursday night. Sienna Miller plays the widow of a murdered boxer whose brother in law vows to avenge the murder. It’s dark and gripping and based on a true story, which is always even more scary.


    Beyonce is continuing with her ‘alternative look’. I reckon she’s been taking style tips from Solange as Beyonce is normally a lot more conservative. The fringe has given her a new lease of life. She visited the Frieze art fair in London but left empty-handed. However, she could have bought something and arranged for it to be delivered….


    Jude Law is set to be a father for the fifth time…with his ex-girlfriend. He’ll now have 5 kids by 3 partners. His most recent baby mum is just 23. Hmmm


    Now what’s going on with Kelly Brook? She’s going to a big effort to show that she’s not wearing a ring isn’t she? That’s because she had dinner the previous night with ex fiance David Mcintosh in LA. But surely even having dinner with him is too much? Only a couple of days after their split he kissed someone else. Gross!


    However, let’s  end on a high. Halle Berry is 48 but still looks around 28. The dress she wore to the Gold Heart dinner in LA is evidence of how to keep it classy in later life. You don’t need to show off everything – eg Madonna – to look amazing


    And that’s it for now. Get out and enjoy your weekend and we’ll see you for more gossip on Monday.

  • Thursday’s Top Celeb Stories

    Hi VIPs! We have an action-packed round-up for you today. If you’re in need of a break and maybe a laugh then we have a roundup of what some of the best known names in showbiz are doing as well as what they’re wearing.

    So let’s get on with it, starting with the good. Amal Alamuddin. No wonder George Clooney married her. Beautiful and smart, currently working in Greece advising them on the return of the Elgin marbles. Controversial!


    Michelle Keegan’s newest Lipsy collection launches today. It’s the Christmas range, which means party dresses and sparkle. Head over to Lipsy.co.uk for a browse.


    Paris Hilton also looked ok, we think, shopping in Beverly Hills. What she lacks in skirt, because let’s face it it’s a bit short, she makes up by carrying a pup in a tutu. Awwww.


    But Nicole Scherzinger – hmmmmm! Why did she look like Beetlejuice at her album playback in London’s Cafe Royal? We’ve seen her do better…


    Now what do you think of Beyonce’s fringe? We have a divided opinion at Live Like a VIP so let us know if you reckon it suits her? Jay-Z in the background of their visit to a charity arts project in South London is not impressed. Or is that because he doesn’t like South London? Tweet @livelikeavip


    That’s it for now but we’ll have plenty more goss for you tomorrow. Then it’s almost the weekend. Come on, you can do this!

    VIP Beauty: False Eyelashes Guide

    From a sneaky subtle fill-in to a full on fierce dramatic look, there are always a pair of false eyelashes that can transform your own into flutter perfection.

    Front pic

    Wearing false eyelashes is one of the best ways to frame your eyes opening them up. Falsies are amazing when they’re matched with all types of eye make up and are a great way to spruce up your look, adding a certain sparkle to your eyes.

    A great set of lashes can go a long way and can appear quite natural if you wear the right pair. Here’s my break down of the best ones that’ll keep you batting those lids non-stop just because you look great doing it.

    Ardell No. 109 Demi Black, £3.99


    For those who prefer something natural and just want to fill the bare spaces in your lash line, choose Ardell’s No.109 natural lash falsie. Ardell is a great brand to buy because all their lashes are made from sterilized human hair so they look and feel completely natural. This pair will make your lashes look fuller and thicker and add a subtle pop to your look. They’re also great for everyday wear because they’re not too long and therefore don’t come off as big and dramatic. Grab a pair of these if you want Megan Fox’s look.

    Red Cherry No.43, £2.99

    Red Cherry


    If you want long, natural and wispy then go for Red Cherry’s luxurious No.3. These lashes are fairly long and full with wispy ends. They give off a semi-dramatic look because they start off slightly thick then branch off thinly and so they appear quite natural. They also have a clear base strip and a natural pattern at the ends, which again make them look more real. These are great for everyday wear and have enough drama for at night out. Go for Red Cherry if you want lashes like Kylie Jenner.

    Eyelure Katy Perry Lashes Punk Princess, £5.95


    This pair is bold and beautiful. From Katy’s Perry’s very own collection of Eyelure eyelashes comes drama and sass. Eyelure provides great quality eyelashes that last long so you can get away with reusing them a couple of times.  These Punk Princess lashes give you lots of volume at the base and then thinly spring out much like Red Cherry’s No.43, but are sure to give you much more in terms of thickness. Again, because of the wispy ends they tend to appear more natural than other dramatic lashes but they still give you the thick bold look you would normally go for on a night out. If Beyonce’s lashes make you blink twice, get this similar pair.

    Try these out and let us know which one you like the most
